I tried the 1k dough in my KA. While it did work I did not care for the dough squeezing out the top and it did over work the mixer. I think next time I will try doing a standard 500g recipe and after the dough mixes for autolysing I will transfer it to a small container for 20 minutes and start on the next dough. I can make as many as I need then move them back into the mixer to finish the process. It may take a little more work but it beats waiting 20 minutes for each dough to autolyse. My 2 cents.

Frank,

What model KA do you have? I'm curious what size it is. Mine is a Pro600.

That would be a lot of cookies. Or some really big ones.

Who said anything about big batches? I just want something that will mix the batter (aka half dried concrete) without burning out the motor!

Making oatmeal cookies is a good way to kill a lesser mixer - or yourself if you're stupid enough to try by hand. The combination of oatmeal and molasses is so viscous that it's just this side of solid. Most standard industrial mixers and extruders can't handle commercial (200 lb) batches. One company had an extruder with a motor the strength of an SUV engine - much, much more powerful than standard.

If they weren't so darn good no one would make oatmeal cookies. It's amazing that anyone ever survives the attempt!

I was in Darwin all last week, so only got the machine this weekend. Haven't fired it up as yet. I can say it's bloody heavy, 70kg.

BTW, I didn't Email him, I rang and spoke with him direct..got a bit of discount after haggling as well..

Sounds good - keen to hear your opinion of it once you've done some testing.

My KA has been protesting LOUDLY after doing a whole lot of dough this weekend. Will definitely have to find a stronger alternative.

Yep, pretty much the reason I got this unit. As I said in an earlier post, my other half makes all our pasta these days and the KA has already been in for repairs once..seems thay use a plastic cog in them somewhere which tends to break if overloaded...I guess it must be cheaper to replace then the motor burning out.
I don't have a WFO as yet, but the plan down the track is to make our own breads as well.. though I'm looking forward to a roast goats leg ( is there a Homer drool smilie)..
