The Ankarsrum Original Kitchen Machine is the result of over 70 years of Swedish innovation. It became available in the United States in the 1980s. Beautifully crafted from chrome and steel, the mixer houses a 600 watt motor that efficiently tackles a variety of baking and cooking needs; making it indispensable for any cook.
The Ankarsrum Original Package (pictured above) comes in a variety of colors. It has both a 7 liter stainless steel bowl and a 3.5 liter plastic whipping bowl. The mixer offers an adjustable speed control dial as well as a 12 minute timer dial. The dust cover can serve as a lid when the machine is not in use or be used as a container to hold the various attachments.
The scraper and dough roller are used in conjunction with the stainless steel bowl for general mixing purposes and the kneading of soft dough. The spatula is designed to not only remove mixtures from the bowl but from the grooves of the dough roller as well. The dough hook also accompanies the stainless steel bowl for the kneading of stiff dough.
The plastic whipping bowl comes with a balloon whisk attachment as well as a single wire whisk attachment. The balloon whisk is used for egg whites and whipping cream, while the single wire is best suited for cake batters, icings and soft cookie dough. It should be noted that the single wire whisk is not equipped to handle cold butter and cream cheese.
