Power Up Your Baking With The Ankarsrum Original

Ankarsrum Original Review |

Are you looking for a machine that kneads bread dough as well as the old Hobart-built KitchenAids or those heavy duty Sunbeams that your mom or grandmother had when you were growing up that would tackle anything? Get a model that hasn’t “changed with the times.” The Ankarsrum Original is Foodal’s Top Rated Stand Mixer and can power through the thickest dough day after day and year after year. Some folks have reported heavy use of their machine over the course of over thirty years.

Although this device has had an identity crisis (at various times being known as the Electrolux Assistent, Magic Mill DLX, and Verona), the guts still remain purely Swedish. A pure powerhouse and our #1 pick for those that work with heavy dough.
