If the Italians don't already say "It's the cat's pajamas" we think they'll start soon, just to describe their Famag mixers. These Italian-made spiral dough mixers are world renowned for strength, quality, and exceptional baking results. And 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 U.S. importer, PHG is proud to offer these high performance dough-making marvels! You'll call them the bee's knees and the cat's whiskers because they make the smoothest, silkiest dough you've likely ever seen—quickly and effortlessly, and in your kitchen.
Designed expressly for ideal dough mixing and kneading results, Famag mixers feature a spiral kneading arm that rotates while the bowl revolves, 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 three-way kneading process is exceptionally thorough and fast, yet the low impact and widely distributed dough contact of the spiral hook completely avoids overworking and overheating of the dough. Wide-range, infinitely variable speed adjustment lets you dial in precisely the action you want. The spiral dough hook on the IM-8 operates at 80-240 RPM. Clickfor the approximate RPM at each speed.
The Famag IM-8 mixer on this page has a fixed head. The bowl is not removable.
“A brilliant purchase. The Famag produces the most fantastic dough I have ever made. A positive window pane test is achieved in a quarter of the time. It's also really easy to clean. This mixer has reignited my baking passion.”– Peter A., CA
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) version 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.
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 77 lb. weight of the IM-8. Epoxy powder coating over a steel cabinet protects the handsome appearance of your Famag mixer.
SUPER CAPACITY RANGE
Famag's IM-8 mixes and kneads up to 17.6 lbs. (8 kg) of dough at 60% hydration (or more at a higher hydration), but also handles batches as small as 2.2 lbs. (1 kg) equally as well. In terms of flour capacity, this is 11 lbs. (5 kg) down to as little as 1.4 lbs. (0.65 kg) of flour. Capacity of the stainless steel bowl is 11.5 quarts. The Famag's head section lifts high for bowl access and removal, and features lift-assist.

Speed Based on Hydration

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.|
|DIS||These items have never been used but we no longer sell them at full price in our store because it was discontinued by us or by the manufacturer.|
|U||Has had light use.|
|SDB||Has moderate damage on a non-working surface, such as a scratch, dent, or blemish on the housing.|
|NOS||A brand new item that isn't the newest model.|
