Assistent Original

Swedish Quality Since 1940

The legendary Swedish food processor is now available in the UK through Pure Cookshop, the retailer for Hot Ideas Limited.

Ankarsum Assistent Original is a design icon; the kitchen machine was first produced in Sweden in 1940. The award-winning machine is a remodel of the original and was designed to satisfy modern-day requirements: even more power, sturdier features and a guarantee extended from five to seven years. The Assistent Original kneads and stirs, mixes and beats, grates, shreds, purées and blends, grinds coffee beans, crushes cereal flakes, rolls pasta, minces meat and stuffs sausages. It can also effortlessly handle up to five kilograms of dough.

Each Ankarsrum Assistent Original basic package includes accessories to make cooking easier and provides invaluable help when baking everything from sponge cakes to sourdough loaves. The deluxe package and a wide range of accessories can be added optionally. It is available in fourteen different colours.

The Assistent features a large 7 litre stainless steel bowl that can hold up to 5kg of dough. The mixer has a unique roller and scraper design that mimics the action of kneading by hand. For heavier doughs, a large dough hook can be used.

Unlike other stand mixers, the Assistent rotates the bowl rather than the dough hook.
