Best Mixer ever

published

The Birko Mixer is the best machine that can handle any tough mixing. It is better than the Kitchenaid one I have owned and had to return twice as it kept going for a walk on my kitchen bench. Yes this one is super heavy and fits nicely on the kitchen bench.

I have used it for many doughs including Churros dough and it handled it very well, lasagna, bread, cakes, donuts and many more and it is tough and I am very happy with it. I have owned it for two years and a half now. So far no problems.

Purchased in May 2017 for $799.00.

JeffW, how's your Birko mixer going? Still recommended? I've been thinking of getting a Breville Bakery Boss for awhile now, but if the Birko is better quality (and hopefully cheaper to run at 300+W instead of 1000W) I'll probably fork out a few extra dollars for it.

Ben - it is great. The only part that wears out is the little belt at the top (it is technically a timing belt) so I get replacements for $12 from the local bearing and belt shop. They tell me that the local Smiths Chips factory use them too!

I use it primarily for mixing bread and pasta dough - but have also used it for mashed potatoes and meringue.

It was reccomended to me by an award winning baker for its action in mixing dough. I can't fault it really.

I can guarantee that it has no plastic gears - so I would check up on whether the breville, like other popular mixers has plastic gears, as they will fail if you try bread dough.

Good luck!

Thanks Jeff, I'll definitely consider it. There's not much info about these mixers online. Can't even find a video of one on YouTube, so your info is much appreciated. Cheers

It looks like it is 7 - 10 mm

The mixer is not like a domestic one, it has to have a minimum volume of material to mix.... for example it takes about 8 egg whites to work properly.....

Hope this helps...
