Description

Famag IM-50 Spiral Dough Mixer

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!

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-50 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.

  • “You can never go wrong by buying from Pleasant Hill Grain. Great company.”

    – Carol T., GA

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 attested to by the mixer’s substantial 308 lb. weight. Epoxy powder coating over a steel cabinet protects the handsome appearance of your Famag mixer.

Famag's IM-50 mixes and kneads up to 110.2 lbs. (50 kg) of dough at 60% hydration (or more at a higher hydration), but also handles batches as small as 11 lbs. (5 kg) equally as well. In terms of flour capacity, this is 69.4 lbs. down to 7.7 lbs. (31.5 kg down to 3.5 kg). Capacity of the stainless steel bowl is 56 quarts. 

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.
