Ankarsrum mixer AKM 6230 colors

Whole grain breadBuilt in Sweden, the Assistant® embodies a decades-old pride of craftsmanship. The people of Ankarsrum build a very special kitchen tool to the highest standard of quality, and at Pleasant Hill Grain we're pleased to offer their products to you! We use this mixer in the PHG kitchen, and understand very well how unique and special they are.

The Ankarsrum Original stand mixer has been revered for decades by cooks who want extraordinary performance from their principal kitchen machine. A great all-purpose stand mixer for everything from cookie and cake batters to applesauce and mashed potatoes, its power also makes it a world class bread dough mixer and kneader. Mix all kinds of bread dough from standard sandwich bread and sourdough, to rye bread and challah, the Ankarsrum will take it all in stride! This mixer is renowned for long term reliability and quality results whether you're making a cake, whipping a meringue, or preparing as many as seven loaves of light, delicious bread. The updated model AKM 6230 is the best Ankarsrum ever, a standout machine with tremendous capabilities.

The Ankarsrum AKM 6230 model includes two bowls: A 7.4 quart stainless bowl, and a clear, BPA-free beater bowl with a usable capacity of 4.5 quarts. 

From Meringues to Challah

The clear double beater bowl produces beautiful meringues, beating up to 18 egg whites—or as few as one—with exceptional results. The beater bowl is also perfect for mixing light, pourable batters, and for creaming butter, margarine, and shortening with sugar to the creamiest texture for all your cookie needs. The clear bowl is stationary, and the whisks are driven from below via a center column in the bowl (the clear bowl is shaped something like a bundt cake pan, as you can see in the images above). This arrangement provides completely open access to the top of the bowl, with no overhead motor drive in the way. The stainless bowl with roller and scraper is ideal for making all kinds of bread dough, pizza dough, and thick cookie batters! When mixing with either bowl, the only metal in contact with your food is food-grade stainless steel. Made of Tritan Copolyester, the mixer's clear bowl can withstand even boiling liquids without warping. 

  • “The Ankarsrum mixer is the best small appliance in my kitchen. Not only does it make fantastic breads, but add a few attachments and you'll be making pasta, juice, smoothies, grating cheese, grinding meat, nuts and chocolate... Excellent quality & nearly limitless versatility.”

    – Bonnie R., MA

ATK recommends the Ankarsrum mixer - 2023Using the stainless bowl, the mixer kneads smooth, silky, elastic bread dough quickly and easily with its unique roller and scraper design. This method effectively mimics kneading by hand, without the time and effort. Thanks to this gentle approach, the Ankarsrum is exceptional for kneading rye bread, since rye has a very weak gluten structure and can become extremely sticky if mixed too aggressively. The stainless bowl revolves as the mixer runs, and as it turns, the deeply fluted roller acts as your fingers, with the scraper mimicking the palm of your hand. The scraper folds the dough with a rhythmic motion while the roller provides a powerful massaging action. From very large batches to very small, your dough comes out wonderfully smooth and elastic. The biggest difference between dense, heavy baked goods and delightfully textured products is proper development of the gluten in the dough, and the powerful AKM 6230 mixer is a master of kneading technique. 


Both bowls are ideal for large batches as well as small. As noted above, the beater bowl will whip anywhere from one to 18 egg whites into a beautiful meringue. The large 7.4 quart stainless steel bowl holds up to 6.6 lbs of flour, enough to make approximately 11 pounds (5 kg) of bread dough, which will make six loaves in 8" loaf pans. It also works wonderfully well with batches of dough as small as 2.2 pounds (1 kg). The efficient, high-torque 600 watt motor runs smoothly and quietly, providing ample power to mix and knead even the largest batch of low hydration bread dough, like challah, or a triple batch of stiff cookie batter without straining. This mixer was nicknamed "The Workhorse Mixer" not by its maker but by users who praise this powerful kitchen helper that's so much fun to use.

Variable Speed & Timer

Any speed from 40 to 180 RPM can be selected, and an electronic speed sensor automatically adjusts motor torque to the load. The mixer's advanced transmission features a belt drive that transmits power more efficiently than common gear drives—producing more usable power than mixers with much higher wattage ratings. This advantage becomes even more pronounced over time as the lubricant in typical gear driven mixers dries to a sticky paste, and most doesn't even stay between the gear teeth. Look inside such a machine after a few years and you'll see grease in abundance, except where it's really needed. Ankarsrum stand mixers, in contrast, maintain their higher efficiency and power for years and years.

The mixer is excellent for kneading breadA timer is standard equipment, so this mixer will do its work quietly and expertly while you attend to other tasks. The control panel is angled for comfortable use, and the large timer and speed controls are attractive and easy to read.

Size & Weight

The AKM 6230 mixer measures 13.5"H x 10.5"W x 15.7"D and weighs 19 lbs. with stainless bowl. It sits firmly on solid rubber feet, and won't walk on the countertop during use. This mixer has a manufacturer's warranty covering the motor and drive train for seven years, and all other parts for one year.


With a wide array of available accessories, this versatile mixer adds a myriad of exciting dimensions to your cooking experience. From blending, juicing, slicing, coffee grinding, and grain flaking—to pasta making, meat grinding, sausage stuffing, and more. It would be easier to list what this mixer doesn't do!

Electrolux Assistant: a distinctive, Nordic design classic

Ankarsrum Electrolux Assistent N1 model, 1940Treasured and handed down as a family heirloom from generation to generation, the Electrolux Assistant food processor has become a national favorite in Sweden.

In 1939, Electrolux gave Swedish designer and engineer, Alvar Lenning, the task of converting a professional restaurant kitchen device into a smaller, more compact gadget that would be convenient for domestic use. Few would have suspected that it would become one of the company’s most durable products, praised both for its sturdy reliability and design. The beige bodywork, the distinctive bell-shaped, metal bowl, unique velouté blades and the sleek, slightly retro look are instantly recognizable. Lenning is an unsung hero of Swedish design.

Note: This mixer has been offered in past years as the Electrolux® Assistant, the Magic Mill DLX, and the Verona® Assistant.
