Famag Grilletta IM-5S Spiral Dough Mixer

Please note: Famag recently experienced a fire in their manufacturing facility. Thankfully no one was hurt, but production of all IM-5 colors has been delayed. We expect to be out of some or all models for approximately six weeks when current stocks are depleted. Please take this into account if you will need a Famag mixer in the weeks ahead.

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.

  • “This is one of my greatest purchases. Very easy to use straight out from the box. Solidly built machine and it runs very quietly. Made my first bread today and it came out awesome. Oh... and thanks for the very secured packaging. I am very pleased with this purchase.”

    – Mavis D., CA


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. Steel 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, Lemon Gelato, 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).

  • 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.

  • Works better than Kenwood stand mixer
    By on - Verified Buyer
    I have a Kenwood KM080, which motor is much more powerful than KitchenAid Pro600. However, planetary motion is not great for kneading stiff dough. Spiral mixer is a much better choice for lean dough.

  • Thanks to everyone at PHG!
    By on - Verified Buyer
    After preordering my Famag IM-5S back in November, I kept getting emails that it was further delayed due to one reason or the other. This is not PHG's fault by any means and I would like to give a shout out to everyone there who made this order come true finally lol. Barbara was especially helpful and was patient for most of my responses since maybe I was getting lets say a little edgy in mine?! Ha... but in the end, y'all there did a fantastic job in getting my mixer to me and I cannot express my sincere gratitude enough. Thank you and anyone who asks where I purchased the mixer or any other baking equipment, grains, etc I will steer them to PHG. Again, thank you so much.
