The Escher Spiral Mixer; Made for Dough

If you work in a bakery and make cookies or bread or anything that requires the use of dough, you know how important your dough recipe is. You know how important it is to add the flour, the water, sugar and oil, but have you given much thought to the mixing stage? Chances are you may not know how important the mixing stage is in defining the structure of the dough, so let’s talk a bit about dough mixing and specifically, dough mixing with an Escher mixer.

Why Use a Spiral Mixer?

Spiral mixers are the perfect tool when it comes to mixing dough because they gently mix through dough, allowing the dough to develop without overworking or tearing. Most spiral mixers come with two motors, one to turn the mixing tool and one to turn the bowl, mixing dough more efficiently and more gently than a planetary or horizontal mixer, so heat from friction isn’t as critical of a concern.
