Gwynedd-based Metcalfe Catering Equipment has added the SM7 professional planetary mixer to its portfolio.
This is a slightly larger version of the company’s best-selling SM5.
Suitable for preparing light dough, pastry, cream and mayonnaise, as well as the staple sauces, crème patisserie, eggs and mashed potato, the SM7 has a 7litre removable stainless steel bowl, and is supplied with a beater, whisk and dough hook. It also comes with a robust and easy to clean plastic safety guard.
The gear-driven, variable speed mixer is said to have a constant mixing action with step-less speed control. While the head lifts for easy bowl and tool removal, the plastic guard allows liquid to be added to the bowl during operation.
Measuring 240mm x 410mm x 425mm, the unit runs off a 13A plug. An overload protection device adds to the safety features.
