The Ankarsrum Original Mixer is an all-purpose, professional quality electric mixer. Both the design and performance are unlike any other mixer.
The 8-quart stainless steel mixing bowl attaches to the drive socket at the base of the mixer. This drive socket rotates and spins the bowl, while the scraper and mixer arm remain stationary. Attach the dough roller or the stainless steel dough hook to the mixer arm. As the mixer rolls and kneads the dough, the scraper continuously scrapes the side of the bowl. No need to stop the mixer to scrape down the sides and ensure all ingredients are incorporated. Once you are finished mixing, use the dough scraper to easily remove any remaining dough from the dough roller or dough hook.
The 4-quart plastic beater bowl uses a center shaft that attaches to the drive socket. The beater housing attaches to the top of the center shaft, which rotates the beaters within the plastic bowl. Two sets of double beaters are attached: wire balloon whisks for eggs, egg whites, and whipping cream; and single wire whips for cake batter and light frosting.
Manually control the mixer speed using the 12 settings at the base of the mixer. The base also features a timer for up to 12 minutes of mixing. The open design of both bowls makes it easy to add ingredients as you mix.

ReviewsCasey KI am delighted with my Ankarsrum Assistent. It is quiet, easy to use (more on that in a bit), and has inspired me to attempt breads I never thought I would make. I mentioned it is easy to use—this is because I took the time to watch videos on how to use it. There is definitely a learning curve, and you will no longer be following recipe instructions the way you used to. In a nutshell, you put the liquids in first, and do not mix your dry ingredients with your flour, because chances are yo will use slightly less flour than the recipe calls for. There are user groups available online with experts willing to advise. But I first encourage you to watch videos—you will be much happier and your items will turn out wonderfully. Chefs Corner Store has great customer service, so you can be assured they will make sure you are happy with your purchase. Go ahead and take the plunge. If you don’t bake a lot already, this inspiring machine will encourage and challenge you to make even more wonderful things. And remember—the cost per use drops the more you use it! You will be using it for decades—it is that good.
