Famag Spiral Dough Mixer for Home or Bakery

Italian bread marketItalian-made Famag spiral dough mixers are world renowned for strength, quality, and outstanding baking results. Now they’re available in the U.S. for the first time, with industrial-duty motors designed specifically for U.S. voltage. As Famag's exclusive importer, Pleasant Hill Grain is proud to offer these high performance bread mixers!

Engineered expressly for ideal dough-mixing and kneading results, Famag spiral mixers feature a spiral agitator that remains stationary while the bowl rotates, bringing the dough to the stainless steel dough hook with each revolution. This action is exceptionally thorough and uniform, while avoiding both overworking and overheating of the dough.

Tilting or Fixed Head

The Famag IM-10 mixer is available with either a tilting head that features a high lift drive and lift assist, or with a fixed head. The model with the fixed head is the IM-10, and the model with the tilting head and removeable bowl is the IM-10S. (NOTE: We don't have photos of the fixed head mixers yet, but we hope to get photos online this fall, once the mixers are in stock.) The bowl is removable on the mixer with a tilting head, and is not removable on the mixer with a fixed head.

If you're mixing high hydration doughs we recommend you purchase the tilting head/removable bowl mixer so it's easier to remove the dough from the bowl, and to clean the bowl. It's easy to remove low hydration dough from the fixed head mixer than it is to remove high hdyration dough, and cleaning the bowl after mixing low hydration dough is easily done with the bowl attached to the mixer.

The tilting head mixer is available in all the color options. The fixed head mixer is currently available in Arctic White, Ruby, and Dark Silver (we may add more colors in the future).


Thanks to the spiral hook’s action, mixtures that overtax other designs—such as pizza or bagel dough—are handled easily, quickly and efficiently in the Famag spiral dough mixer. Doughs of all kinds, from heavy to high-hydration artisan doughs, come out smooth, silky and perfectly developed. We now offer the new HH (high hydration) IM-10S mixer with a special sprocket that allows the mixer to run up to 300 RPM; this version is designed specifically for mixing dough that's above 75% hydration.

  • “PHG does customer service the right way, with quick response and great follow through on any little question or order issue.”

Multigrain & seed sandwich breadFamag dough mixers feature 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 attested to by the mixer’s substantial 81.5 lb. weight. Epoxy powder coating over a steel cabinet protects the handsome appearance of your Famag bread mixer.


Famag's IM-10 mixes and kneads up to 22 lbs. (10 kg) of dough at 60% hydration (or more at a higher hydration), but also handles batches as small as 3.3 lbs. (1.5 kg) equally as well. In terms of flour capacity, this is 13.8 lbs. (6.3 kg) down to 2.2 lbs (1 kg). Capacity of the stainless steel bowl is 14 quarts. Unlike inferior designs, the kneading arm of the Famag lifts high for bowl access and removal, and provides lift-assist. 

  1. Heavier doughs can be mixed when the hydration level is higher than the 60% hydration formulas listed above.
  2. The flour used for these capacity tests was 00 durum wheat flour.

Sparkle Silver has a brilliant sparkle to it that catches light more than the pearlescent colors will. Arctic White, Maraschino, Ruby, Charcoal, and Oyster 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).

  • “Best dough mixer I ever bought. Yes it's not cheap, but so worth the price... quality couldn't be better. The results of my pizza dough are beyond what I expected. It makes a world of difference in the end result taste. So happy I chose to go with the Famag.”

  • Great dough mixer
    By on - Verified Buyer
    I have a large wood fired oven in which I can bake 8 to 10 loaves of bread at one time. Additionally I make a dozen or more pizza dough balls at a time and freeze the ones I don’t use. I tried the larger Kitchen Aid mixer to make my dough but I had to make multiple batches for the quantity of dough I normally use, and I had smoke coming out of the back of my KA while making pizza dough (I turned it off quickly and averted damage).

    I ran a 3kg batch of dough to test it out. It never hesitated and the bread was phenomenal. The second batch was similar in size except when it was done kneading my wife asked me to put some olives in the bread. No problem and it did not beat up the olives too bad.

    There was a very simple problem with the 1st machine and when I called and described it to Darren, a new one was on its way in less than a blink of an eye. The machine will be easy to service with large removable access panels and simple construction and steel moving parts. The problem with the 1st machine was a missing Allen screw. A
    simple item available at any auto part store (parts are metric).

    It weighs about 80 lbs, not a problem for me to move it, but a factor to consider.

    If you make dough frequently I highly recommend this mixer.

  • The Pinnacle
    By on - Verified Buyer
    I consider this machine to be the pinnacle in my search for the mixer that meets my bread baking needs. I started many years ago by hand and being basically lazy bought a Bosch in 25 years, then won a second in a drawing, which upped my production, but still wasn't quite happy with my dough. Next I went with an Ankarsrum which I love but was back to small batches again. I then went to a 20qt Hobart which was great for capacity but it put my dough back to what I was getting with the Bosch. Enter the Famag 10. I've used this machine three times now with 6 lb. batches and already the dough quality is up where I was with the Ank. And I feel like it'll just get better from there. The speed control is amazing and nothing seems to slow it down. My only wish is that I would like a timer on it. I'm going to look online and see if I can find one that plugs in. If I was pleasant hill grain I would see about offering one as an accessory. Pleasant Hill Grain is the best to work with, never a problem and I have ordered several products for myself and my daughters through the years. They even held shipment of my mixer till our kitchen remodel was finished (part of the negotiations to acquire my new mixer) his and her new pantries to finish up great machine.

  • Solid work out of the box!
    By on - Verified Buyer
    The FAMAG 10S spiral mixer performed as advertised. It arrived just as I was getting ready to mix a 10.5 kg batch of sourdough. I decided to push this mixer to its limit from the start and it performed very well. Although this model has a dough capacity of 11.8 kg, I could keep it around 8-9 kg. I had to scrape the bowl a few time to ensure the flour that likes to hide in the edge of the bowl was mixed in. Probably not an issue with a high-hydration dough. This model comes with a reverse drive!!! I must have missed that in the details but is a valued feature to mix up our doughs. The size is suitable for a cottage bakery and being able to remove the bowl for cleaning is another huge plus. I look forward to many more mixes with this work horse.

  • Both mixer and service exceeded my expectations
    By on - Verified Buyer
    Knowing the item was out of stock, I ordered based on anticipated "in stock" date. Spoke with two different staff over the next week. I was impressed they went the extra step each time to check status on a back order, locate and confirm arrival date. Mixer got here on date promised, in perfect condition.

    As for the mixer, the Famag IM-10, it is simply superb. After 30 years as a hobby baker, making 200 loaves a week for the local Farmers Market, I am so very impressed with both the operation of the machine and the quality of the bread! And my customers are raving too!

  • Excellent

    My wife's "Out-of -the-house" baking business has been helped so much by this machine. The breads are even more fabulous than before. Please look at the photos of her breads since working with the Famag 10. Angelcraftsbakery. com

  • Works beautifully. Solid and well-made
    By on - Verified Buyer
    The only other spiral mixer I have used is a large commercial one during my time in Italy. This smaller version works very well. It is quiet and seems well-made. I did not think I'd need the variable speed control since the mixer I was used to using had only two speeds. I find, though, that the variable speed is useful and I use it almost every time.

  • Awesome
    By on - Verified Buyer
    You can't get the mixing with a planetary the same as a spiral. It's no comparison. This is designed for dough, with no slapping against the bowl and low resistance on the drive. No countertop movement, no whine. I definitely will get another. Great customer service too. Awesome.

    This ain't your Grandma's mixer! This solid machine easily handles the heaviest doughs from extra hydrated to standard, from single batches to 8-12, with the same care and ease.

    Whereas your KA mixer might take a walk, this one stands its ground with no hesitancy or vibration. It is as beautiful as it is strong.
