Famag IM-15 Spiral Dough Mixer

Italian-made Famag spiral 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 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. The spiral dough hook on the IM-15 operates at 110-270 RPM. Click here for the approximate RPM at each speed.


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.

  • “Your website is well laid out, easy to navigate, and very informative. My order arrived in good shape and you got it here super-fast. I’ll order from Pleasant Hill Grain many more times in the future.”

    – Brad Sanner, LA

Famag 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 143 lb. weight. Epoxy powder coating over a steel cabinet protects the handsome appearance of your Famag mixer.


Famag's IM-15 mixes and kneads up to 33 lbs. (15 kg) of dough at 60% hydration (or more at a higher hydration), but also handles batches as small as 7.7 lbs (3.5 kg). equally as well. In terms of flour capacity, this is 20 lbs. (9 kg) down to 3.9 lbs. (1.8 kg). Capacity of the stainless steel bowl is 20 quarts. 

  • “You have an excellent selection of quality products, and your prices and customer service are great. No hype, just good old-fashioned integrity. My hat is off to your company.”

    – Catherine Arias, CA

Speed Based on Hydration

Variable speed mixers have a speed dial marked from 1-10. For normal dough with a hydration of 55-65%, the mixer can be operated at speeds 1 through 5. With 65-75% hydration, at speeds 1 through 6-7, and with dough over 75% hydration, at speeds 1 through 8-10. These are general guidelines, as dough characteristics vary. If mixing dough that's less than 60% hydration, it's recommend to only fill the bowl to 50% capacity, and mix for only 10 minutes at a time; judgment must be exercised in any case, to avoid kneading dough so dry it’s outside of normal baking parameters, regardless of the hydration numbers. With dough over 60% hydration, dough can be mixed for up to 20-25 minutes before the mixer should be turned off for about 40 minutes.
