Find the right mixer for your application

  • When mixing dough (pizza, bread or bagels) check your
    "AR" absorption ratio - water weight divided by flour weight
    Example: If recipe calls for 5 lb of water and 10 lb of flour, then 5 divided by 10 = 0.50 x 100 = 50% AR
  • Below capacities are based on 12% flour moisture at 70°F water temperature
  • If high gluten flour is used, reduce dough batch by 10%
  • 2nd speed should never be used on mixtures with less than 50% AR
  • Do not use attachments on hub while mixing
  • When calculating the correct size mixer for your application, here are some helpful weights & measures:
    1 gallon of water = 8.3 lb
    1 quart = 2.08 lb
