Taylor mixes it up with new Kodiak range

KODIAK mixer

Foodservice equipment distributor Taylor UK has announced the launch of a new range of floor standing Kodiak planetary mixers, manufactured by Varimixer, intended for use by catering businesses needing the ability for high capacity, large batch mixing.

Designed after studying how mixers are used in professional kitchens and bakeries, the Kodiak range aims to help reduce heavy lifting and make cleaning and maintaining hygiene simpler for professionals in the industry.

Three floor standing models are available, with 10, 20 and 30 litre capacities, all made from stainless steel and designed to be able to withstand life in a busy kitchen while also being easy to clean.

The Kodiaks meet the IP44 standard, protecting the internal components from particles and water, and offering a simple-to-use control panel that is positioned at an ergonomic working height.

The mixing bowl can be moved about the kitchen thanks to a specially designed ergonomic trolley, which is worktop height to reduce heavy lifting, with a rubber ring to keep the bowl firmly in place.

The bowl is then lifted into position and locked into place by operating a side mounted lever, while the contents are protected during the mixing process by a patented polycarbonate safety guard with an integrated silicon filling chute that allows for hot ingredients to be added. The guard, which is attached with magnets, also operates as a cut off as the machine will not run if it is not attached.

The mixing itself is carried out by a mixing tool that has been designed to maximise efficiency and reduce working time, with its shape allowing it to reach every part of the bowl, so all contents are processed evenly.

A powerful three phase motor ensures accurate mixing at even low speeds, with the Kodiak 10 being capable of speeds as low as 72 RPM up to 451 RPM, while Kodiak 20 and 30 can be set between 64 and 353RPM.

As well as a hook, the mixer is supplied with a whip and beater attachment, and the Kodiak 20 and 30 models are also compatible with smaller mixing bowls and tools. A 12 litre capacity bowl is available for the Kodiak 20 and a 15 litre bowl for the Kodiak 30.

Further versatility is added with the optional attachment drive, allowing for a mincer or vegetable cutter to be added to the unit, and it is available for all three models.

Each model requires 230V and can be powered from a standard socket, with list prices for the floor mounted Kodiak range starting from £5,238.00 plus VAT for the Kodiak 10.

Taylor UK is part of the Hubbard Taylor Group (HTG Trading Ltd) and is the exclusive distributor of the Taylor, Frigomat and Pratica ranges in the UK, and a preferred supplier of ISA, TurboChef and Perfect Fry equipment.
