Description

Famag Spiral Dough Mixer for Home or Bakery

Prices of many products are under strong inflationary pressures currently, and Famag mixers are no exception. Famag has had to increase wholesale costs, and the cost of shipping each 40’ shipping container from Europe has increased from less than $5800 at the start of this year to over $17,000 currently, plus new storage costs incurred due to port congestion. In addition, Famag recently warned us that the supply of mixers will be reduced between now and the end of the year due to Covid-related supply chain disruption, even aside from any new closures this fall/winter. The bottom line is that Famag mixers are lower priced and more available now than they are likely to be in the future.

For the last eighteen Covid-crazed months, some returned products have piled up—including a number of Famag mixers. They’ve been carefully checked out, come with full warranties, and they’re priced hundreds of dollars off! If you’re interested, please ask one of our customer service reps for all of the details, including photos!

Description

Italian-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. An integrated offset breaker bar ensures ideal metering of the dough into the spiral hook. This action is exceptionally thorough and uniform, while avoiding both overworking and overheating of the dough. The spiral dough hook on the IM-10 operates at 80-240 RPM. Click here for the approximate RPM at each speed.

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. 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).

HIGH HYDRATION OR HEAVY DOUGH

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.

  • “Your reputation for customer service is why I purchased from Pleasant Hill Grain. You've certainly lived up to it!”

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.

SUPER CAPACITY RANGE

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. 

Notes
  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.

Colors

Famag spiral dough mixers are available in a wide selection of colors. Dark Silver and Marina 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, 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).

  • “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.”

    – Joe S., MN
