Famag IM-5S Mixer for High Hydration Dough


The Famag IM-5S HH mixer is identical to the standard IM-5S Famag Mixer, except that it has a special sprocket that allows the mixer to run at a faster RPM. The spiral hook on this model runs at 80-300 RPM, while the hook on the standard IM-5S mixer runs at 80-240 RPM. Click here for the approximate RPM at each speed, for each model. The IM-5S HH mixer is designed specifically for high hydration dough (over 75% hydration). The HH mixer on this page has a tilting head and removable bowl, to make it easier to remove dough from the mixer and clean the bowl after use. Please see our main Famag IM-5 mixer page for full description of the mixer. (If you aren't planning to make a lot of high hydration dough, the mixer with the regular sprocket is a great option.)

Famag mixers feature a heavy duty chain overhead drive with a high torque dual-belt final drive. FAG sealed industrial ball bearings are used for exceptionally long life. Construction is robust throughout, as reflected by the substantial 66 lb. weight of the IM-5. Epoxy powder coating over a steel cabinet protects the handsome appearance of your Famag mixer.

  • “My pizza-making obsession led me to the Famag, and now my dough is much better. It’s easy to use and clean. It has all the capacity I'll ever need, yet it can still mix a very small batch when needed. As a baking hobbyist, I’m inspired now to branch out to making all types of bread.”

    – Richard R.S., VT

The Famag IM-5S HH mixer has a tilting head that features a high lift drive and lift assist. The bowl on this model is removable bowl.


Famag's Grilletta IM-5 mixes and kneads up to 11 lbs. of dough at 60% hydration (or more at higher hydration), but also handles batches as small as 1.7 lbs (0.8 kg) equally as well. In terms of flour capacity, this is 6.8 lbs (3.1 kg) down to 1.1 lb (0.5 kg). Capacity of the stainless steel bowl is 8.4 quarts. The kneading arm of the Famag IM-5S lifts high for bowl access and removal, and provides lift-assist. 


Variable speed mixers have a speed dial marked from 1-10. For normal dough with a hydration of of 50-65%, the mixer can be operated at speeds 1 through 5. With 70-75% hydration, at speeds 1 through 6-7, and with 80% hydration, at speeds 1 through 8-10. These are general guidelines, as dough characteristics vary.


Famag spiral dough mixers are available in a wide selection of colors. Dark Silver, Marina, and Emerald are pearl finishes that have a subtle pearlescent luster. Sparkle Silver has a brilliant sparkle to it that catches light more than the pearlescent colors will. Arctic White, Ruby, and Maraschino have a glossy finish. Galaxy sparkles in gold, red, blue, and green over a black background. Because of the unique characteristics of the Galaxy color, 3” x 6” Galaxy color sample cards are available by U.S. mail at a cost of $7 (which includes shipping). This cost is refundable as a credit toward the purchase of any color or model of Famag mixer purchased within 30 days (and you can keep the card).
