Description

Famag Grilletta IM-5S Spiral Mixer

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.

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.

  • “My pizza-making obsession led me to the Famag, and now my dough is much better. It’s easy to use and clean. It has all the capacity I'll ever need, yet it can still mix a very small batch when needed. As a baking hobbyist, I’m inspired now to branch out to making all types of bread.”

    – Richard R.S., VT

Artisan boulesPROFESSIONAL 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.

Famag's Grilletta IM-5S mixes and kneads up to 11 lbs. of dough, but also handles batches as small as 1 lb. equally as well. In terms of flour capacity, this is 10.6 lbs. down to 0.6 lb. Capacity of the stainless steel bowl is 8.4 quarts. Unlike inferior designs, the kneading arm of the Famag lifts high for bowl access and removal, and provides lift-assist.

Famag spiral dough mixers are available in a wide selection of colors. Silver, Steel and Marina are pearl finishes that have a subtle pearlescent luster.

  • Nice dough mixer!
    By on - Verified Buyer
    The mixer IM-5S is very good, solid build, delivered on time, excellent packaging.

    Now baking bread 4-5 times a week with confidence.
    Pros: heavy. doesn't walk on a countertop, ever-ever.
    Cons: heavy. I rent an apartment on the 4th floor and brought the mixer upstairs myself and only inside I noticed the sticker on a box "minimum two person lift". : )

  • Fabulous Mixer
    By on - Verified Buyer
    I owned a bakery for several years, and am now retired and bake at home. Until I got the Famag mixer, I almost gave up on finding a mixer that produces good dough development in small home sized doughs—like 1,500 grams or so. The Famag is just great. Gives me good dough strength like I got in my larger spiral mixer at the bakery. I wish it had a built in timer, but other than that absolutely no complaints. I am SO GLAD I bought this mixer.
