Clearance: Häussler Alpha Mixer, 2 Speed, White
This is an R2 clearance item. Please check the tables below to see how we rate our clearance items.
The unique Alpha mixer by Häussler offers the home gourmet a countertop spiral mixer of exceptional strength and effectiveness. The Alpha offers the advanced features of the larger SP-series mixers into a more compact footprint. With its design centered around the power rotating bowl and spiral dough hook, the Alpha gently but powerfully works a wide range of dough types, from very heavy to very high hydration artisan doughs.
Uncompromising quality: Häussler construction quality is far above the ordinary. The Alpha mixer boasts true commercial-level design, a key feature of which is its smooth, powerful chain drive. The high angle lift of the drive head provides extraordinary access to the bowl, and lifting the head is effortless thanks to a pressurized lift-assist cylinder. The case is heavy gauge steel, as evidenced by the machine's hefty 63.9 lb. weight. With a depth of 7.75", width of 17.75" (with bowl, arm down), and standing 16.4" tall (arm down), the Alpha is sized perfectly for the kitchen of the serious gourmet. In its elegantly handsome cabinet, even between mixing tasks the Alpha makes a bold statement.
“Absolutely the best mixer for home or small commercial use. I made a huge batch, over 2 Kg, of baguettes that were easier to shape than ever before. I made Pain de Campagne and the taste, believe me or not, was far better due to this mixer.”

Expanded Ratings Descriptions
|R1||Very close scrutiny is required to tell that the item isn’t brand new. Working surfaces may show slight wear; for example, the bottom-inside of a Bosch mixer bowl may show swirl marks because Bosch mixer whips are designed to “float” against bottom of bowl. Non-working surfaces (cabinet, control panel) look essentially new. Carton may not be perfect.|
|R2||Typically has a small scuff or mark on a non-working surface like a mixer cabinet or the top of a pressure cooker lid.|
|FR||Mostly returned items which have been brought fully up to new-equipment performance specs at the factory.|
|D||Demonstration items have been operated briefly at Pleasant Hill Grain.|
|DXD||An item that we no longer sell new in our store because it was discontinued by us or by the manufacturer.|
|U||Has had light use.|
|SD||Has moderate damage on a non-working surface, such as a scratch or dent in the housing.|
|NOS||A brand new item that isn't the newest model.|

After working with a Bosch for seven years and making 70-80 loaves of bread each week, this mixer does a far better job in kneading and mixing our dough. We would recommend Haussler to anyone who does small scale baking like we do. I would never go back to a Bosch again, the Haussler does such a great job in mixing all kinds of dough.14 out of 14 people found this review helpful. Did you?
Our friends have had a Häussler mixer for nine years. They use it at least three times a week and it still works like new. We have a mixer from a different company, not even half as old, and it started to break down already. We're pleased to have purchased the Häussler mixer.8 out of 8 people found this review helpful.

If you're a bread fanatic, this is the mixer for you! Super commercial quality and dough never felt so smooth or reacted so well!8 out of 8 people found this review helpful. Did you?
Just what I wanted. The mixer is strong, has two speeds and will handle 3 lbs to over 9. A big plus is the ability to remove the bowl and hook for cleaning. I think the cost for a second bowl is too high.7 out of 7 people found this review helpful. Did you?
After a long string of all the "best" mixers on the market, I think the Haussler Alpha actually delivers.5 out of 5 people found this review helpful. Did you?
It is certainly an expensive dough mixer, but after receiving and unpackaging the Haussler Alpha, shipped expediently by Pleasant Hill Grain, the value of the cost becomes readily apparent... this dough mixer is simply designed to task, and built to last.
I have only just begun using the mixer, but I foresee a long and productive usage in our dough mixing future, and this product reinforces my core belief that when you buy quality, you only cry once!8 out of 9 people found this review helpful. Did you?
The Häussler Alpha is a great mixer, the best I've owned. It's easy to use and clean, and the Pleasant Hill Grain staff who assisted me in ordering were experienced and friendly.5 out of 6 people found this review helpful. Did you?
If you're an artisan home bread baker, I have tried many mixers and this one is the winner. It makes the most beautiful stretched gluten dough, efficiently, quietly and looks beautiful on your counter. The bread dough is just fantastic. It's making beautiful bread.
I had some dough ride up on the hook so I cut a circle about 1.5" bigger in diameter than existing guard, from a flexible plastic cutting sheet. I cut into it halfway and cut a small circle in the center then taped closed the cut, leaving about a quarter inch untaped where it meets the center small circle, so it would slip past the hook's locking pins. With this added, my mixer is perfection.
We're glad you love your Haussler, Ann! As for dough climbing the hook, the hook was recently improved to prevent this. We emailed to ask if we could get your recipe to try, to see if we could diagnose the issue, but weren't able to reach you. That offer still stands, if you'd like to get back to us. Happy Haussler baking!2 out of 3 people found this review helpful. Did you?
The Haussler Alpha mixer is simply the best dough mixer I have ever owned. I used to have a Bosch Universal. The construction center post was terrible, in that high hydration doughs stuck to it which negated the kneading action. In addition, the top of the post had many grooves which made it hard to clean.
The Haussler makes all kinds of doughs easy to knead. I have made a slack sourdough, a sturdy whole wheat, hard-to knead onion rolls and a sour rye. The Haussler handled all of them easily and beautifully. The machine is EXTREMELY easy to clean; I clean it in less than 5 minutes. The quality of the kneaded dough is far better, smoother and able to pass the "window pane" test than any other dough I have worked with.
Is the Haussler worth the money? Obviously, the answer depends on several factors such as your budget, how often you bake bread and what you're willing to spend for the best. I for one, am convinced it is worth the money and I am extremely happy I bought one.Was this review helpful to you?
The headline says it all. I've made two batches of dough using this machine, a sourdough and a 100% whole wheat. Both came out superb. In both cases the dough was completely smooth and exceptionally well kneaded. Of course the Haussler is expensive, but if you're willing to pay extra for the best, it's worth it. I gave away a Bosch Universal in exchange for the Haussler and I've never looked back. The Haussler kneads far better than the Bosch and is MUCH easier to clean.Was this review helpful to you?
