The unique Alpha mixer by Häussler offers the home gourmet a countertop spiral mixer of exceptional strength and effectiveness. The Alpha offers the advanced features of the larger SP-series mixers into a more compact footprint.

Uncompromising quality: Häussler construction quality is far above the ordinary. The Alpha mixer boasts true commercial-level design, a key feature of which is its smooth, powerful chain drive. The high angle lift of the drive head provides extraordinary access to the bowl, and lifting the head is effortless thanks to a pressurized lift-assist cylinder.

By Da Bäckabua on 6/29/2019 - Verified BuyerI had to make a decision between this mixer, the Ankarsrum and a Famag. All three mixers are getting great reviews and it seems each mixer is designed to be ideal for their country of origin.
The Famag coming from Italy has a permanently fixed spiral which is great for kneading strong gluten wheat doughs, the predominant dough used in Italy for bread, pizza and pasta.
The Ankarsrum from Sweden is probably the best mixer for rye doughs, the most popular grain in Nordic countries. Rye doughs can't form a gluten network and require more of a gentle mixing rather than kneading. Nobody beats Ankarsrum in doing this.
The Häussler is from Germany. According to the bread register of the German Institute for Bread (of course there is such a thing), there are now more than 3,200 officially recognized types of bread in the country. So the range of different grains (wheat, spelt, rye, emmer, einkorn etc. ) and flours (fine to very coarse, refined to whole) is huge and a mixer needs to accommodate all of them. As an example mixing a Pumpernickel dough with a spiral will not work very well, so the Alpha allows to switch to a paddle, which works great for this soft dough. As much as I would have loved to save money there was no alternative to the Häussler since I need the flexibility of different mixing attachments. I bake everything from classic wheat sourdough, to ancient grains, pizza, pasta, Pumpernickel and this mixer was the best choice for someone like me.30 out of 30 people found this review helpful.

By Genki in CA on 2/13/2017 - Verified BuyerThere isn't much to say except this is simply the best mixer for bread. End of story. I started with the Hobart N50 which is amazing but too small, really, for the quantity I make (although it certainly has the power). Then I went to the Electrolux Kitchen Assistent which is also a great mixer but again, not the right size or power. Finally, this is the right mixer in terms of power, size, and productivity.22 out of 22 people found this review helpful. Did you?
By Sergej M. in MN on 5/15/2016 - Verified BuyerOur friends have had a Häussler mixer for nine years. They use it at least three times a week and it still works like new. We have a mixer from a different company, not even half as old, and it started to break down already. We're pleased to have purchased the Häussler mixer.17 out of 17 people found this review helpful.

By Roger in CA on 4/20/2018 - Verified BuyerI've been making 25% to 50% whole wheat breads with my KitchenAid Commercial KSM7990 for years but came close to killing it on a recent batch (which would be the third time I killed a KA mixer). So I lost my mind and bought this Haussler. Made two batches of bread this past weekend and, well, the Haussler didn't blink an eye. It was quiet, stable, and smooth. The timer is really convenient. It cleans easily. I should have bought one years ago.
I recommend buying the food-safe lubricant as well.14 out of 14 people found this review helpful. Did you?
By Rhonda P. in TX on 4/17/2017 - Verified BuyerI've had four mixers, all well know brands, but now I've found the one that gets the job of mixing dough done! The Haussler plows through bagel dough like a beast, never slowing down or taxing the motor. I'm beyond happy that I purchased this mixer. I can now sell the Bosch, Ankarsrum and Kitchen Aid.14 out of 14 people found this review helpful. Did you?
By Andrew M. in NJ on 1/27/2017 - Verified BuyerThis is absolutely the best mixer for home or small commercial use. I made a huge batch, over 2Kg, of baguettes that were easier to shape than ever before. I made Pain de Campagne and the taste, believe me or not, was far better due to this mixer. I'm able to make higher hydration doughs with this mixer with no problems; 75% hydration. The mixing time for the high hydration doughs are definitely less than 10 minutes. This mixer gives the dough the proper amount of air, dough strength, and gluten structure. Please note that sometimes the dough does ride up the hook.Moderator:
Andrew, we believe you'll find, as others have, that adding more of your recipe's liquid earlier in the process will produce the results you want while preventing dough from climbing the hook. Thanks for your review!8 out of 8 people found this review helpful. Did you?

By Philip Z. in NC on 1/27/2017 - Verified BuyerI've been baking Euro style bread at home for more than ten years. To put my review in perspective, I'll try to describe what I use the spiral mixer for and what lead me to choose the Haussler Alpha to help you decide whether it's worth looking into buying one yourself.
My typical dough is about 6 lbs (2kg flour/1.3 liters water, 40g salt, 25g instant active dry yeast). The Alpha spiral mixer is perfect for this amount. I can now make the best quality dough I've ever made in about 15 minutes. I started out using a KitchenAid 600, broke two sets of those plastic gears, then went to a used Hobart 20qt. The Hobart was OK, but couldn’t knead smaller doughs or with the larger ones, the dough constantly started climbing up the hook and you end up spinning the dough and having to operate the bowl up and down to make it work.
I've used the Alpha spiral mixer for two weeks now and it’s making the nicest doughs ever. The doughs are robust but elastic and smooth. Pastry dough turns out beautifully as well, and best of all is the timer and two speeds. So far, no size dough I've made climbs up the hook thanks to the hook design and revolving bowl. The bowl size is perfect, I can let the dough rise in it right after kneading. I'm very, very happy. Buying from Pleasant Hill Grain was flawless too! This is the perfect kneading machine for home bakers.5 out of 5 people found this review helpful. Did you?
By LC in MA on 10/23/2018 - Verified BuyerAfter spending a few years looking for a machine that could handle bread dough, I bought the Haussler Alpha Mixer 2 speed a couple weeks ago after taking a bread workshop and seeing one there. Been using a Kitchenaid - a real trooper but not adequate.
With the Haussler, I'm able to mix (in one batch vs. many small batches) and actually develop gluten as well as try different methods I've read about - improved, intensive, double hydration etc. with no strain to the Haussler.
It's quiet, doesn't move (I can do other things while it works), mixes gently and thoroughly. I like the quality and simplicity of the machine. It's easy clean-up and maintenance seems like it won't be difficult down the road. I've subsequently bought the paddle and whip set for the unit.
Pleasant Hill Grain did a great job. I communicated with Michelle and Barb in customer service in regard to shipping. Both were very friendly and followed-up to make sure I was all set. My mixer came packaged with great care and protection.
The Haussler saves me time, makes incredible dough and noticeably better bread since I can now achieve proper gluten development. I'm exceedingly happy with my Haussler.4 out of 4 people found this review helpful. Did you?
By Miau on 6/30/2019 - Verified BuyerI purchased this mixer two years ago and use it regularly to mix high hydration dough for baguettes and brioches. What a time saver it is! I used to make multiple batches using the Kitchen Aid but now I can make (14) 20" baguettes in a single batch.
Using the optional paddle attachment, this mixer can also handle several pounds of cookie dough and there is no need to stop the mixer to clean the side of the bowl. This mixer is primarily for bread and the paddle attachment does not work very well to incorporate air when creaming butter and sugar for cake batter.
It looks absolutely stunning on the counter top and our guests are very impressed by its industrial appearance.
I have yet to use the optional whip attachment to make a Genoise or a Meringue Buttercream. Even if the result is less than adequate for such types of foaming method, I am thrilled to use the Haussler for bread making.3 out of 3 people found this review helpful. Did you?
