Description

Famag Grilletta IM-5 & IM-5S Spiral Dough Mixer

Famag Grilletta family shot

Artisan rollsItalian-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. 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-5 operates at 80-240 RPM. Click here for the approximate RPM at each speed.

PROFESSIONAL BUILD QUALITY

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

Tilting or Fixed Head

The Famag Grilletta IM-5 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-5, and the model with the tilting head and removeable bowl is the IM-5S. 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 a tilting head/removable bowl model 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. 

  • “Until I got the Famag mixer, I almost gave up on finding a mixer that produces good dough development in small home sized doughs… the Famag is just great. Gives me good dough strength like I got in my larger spiral mixer at the bakery. I am SO GLAD I bought this mixer.”

    – Gil T., MS

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.

Artisan boulesWe now offer the new HH (high hydration) IM-5S 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.

SUPER CAPACITY RANGE

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. Unlike inferior designs, the kneading arm of the Famag IM-5S 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, Ruby, Maraschino, Oyster, Snapdragon Yellow, and Raspberry 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).

The tilting head mixer is available in all the following color options. The fixed head mixer is available in Arctic White, Ruby, Sparkle Silver and Dark Silver.
