The Ankarsrum Original Kitchen Machine (formerly known as Verona, Magic Mill, Electrolux Assistent, DLX), a favorite mixer of Swedish cooks since 1940, is now available for North American homeowners. Fashioned from sturdy chrome and steel, this 600 watt professional quality kitchen tool is a durable all-purpose mixer that produces superior baking results. A variety of optional attachments transforms the Ankarsrum Original into a complete kitchen center, eliminating the need for a separate food processor, meat grinder, or slicer. The Ankarsrum Original offers professional functionality and versatility in one convenient countertop tool.
THE CENTERPIECE OF THE KITCHEN – TODAY & TOMORROW
Mix and knead your bread dough, cookie dough, cake batter and just about any other baked good, with the Ankarsrum Original stand mixer. This one of a kind mixer features a stainless steel bowl and carbon steel base with a Matte finish in Royal Blue.
Machine includes a 7 liter Stainless Steel mixing bowl, dough roller, dough knife, dough scraper, dough hook and dust cover lid (perfect for allowing dough to rise in the bowl). The large stainless steel mixing bowl has an astounding capacity of 21 cups of flour and a unique revolving design. As the bowl turns, the deeply fluted roller acts as your fingers, with the scraper mimicking the palm of your hand. The scraper folds the dough with a rhythmic motion while the roller provides a powerful massaging action. These mixing attachments are gentle enough for gluten free batters and perfect for higher hydration dough. The sturdy dough hook is designed for dryer, heavier doughs and kneads by stretching, pulling, and folding the dough around the hook as the bowl turns.
The unit also includes a 3.5 liter Double Beater Bowl made from BPA/BPS FREE Tritan plastic, a durable plastic that is safe to use with boiling sugar syrup and will not leave a fatty residue after whipping cream. Includes a set of multi-wire balloon whisks, perfect for cream, egg whites, meringue, marshmallows and any other light batter you wish to whip and aerate. Also included, is a set of single-wire whips, designed for light batters and soft cookie dough. Room temperature butter or cream cheese should always be used with the beater assemblies.
The speed control knob allows for a seamless transition from 45 to 130 RPM, and the electronic speed sensor automatically adjusts motor torque to the load. The On/Off knob is also a 12 minute timer, so it will do its work while you do other tasks, stopping when you want it to. The control panel is angled for comfortable use, and the large timer and speed controls are attractive and easy to read.
SWEDISH QUALITY SINCE 1940
The gold standard of mixers for bread baking, the Ankarsrum Assistant Original was the first Swedish kitchen machine when it was launched in 1940. This uniquely designed machine, mixes dough better than any other residential stand mixer. Strong and powerful, your bread will rise higher and have better texture when mixed in an Ankarsrum.

- Unique engineering puts the motor in the bottom of the unit. A movable steel arm holds the roller with a separate scraper that simultaneously rolls and kneads dough and batter.
- Large plastic beater bowl whisks meringue, creams butter and icing and holds up to 18 egg whites.
- Weighs only 19lbs. with stainless steel bowl and fits conveniently under overhead cabinets on most kitchen counters. Rubber feet and solid construction keep mixer in place during operation.

In 1940, the Assistent was launched by Swedish white goods manufacturer Electrolux. The Second World War meant that Swedish households were forced to review their expenses, with families baking, cooking food, making jams and syrups and preserving food much more than they had previously. All that needed a robust, reliable kitchen assistant.
A striking sign of the spirit of those times is the collection of “crisis recipes” that accompanied each machine during the first few years.
The streamlined design, typical of its time, came from the mind of industrial designer Alvar Lenning. The motor was 250 W at that time, and the machine was beige in color. Sales went well, and over time this kitchen assistant became a common sight in Swedish kitchens. In 1969, production moved from the Electrolux factory in Motala to Ankarsrum, where all the aluminum components, such as the arm, the arm attachment, the upper stand and the mincer and its parts, as well as the electrical motor, are all still cast, processed and assembled today.
Since its initial launch, the Ankarsrum Original has been developed and improved in a number of areas, and the number of accessories has been expanded, although the basic construction and the original concept of a robust, dependable and easy-to-use kitchen assistant for private and professional use remains.
The Ankarsrum Original has been voted “Best in test” in various tests on numerous occasions. That spurs us on to be even better. Proof that we have succeeded can be seen in the positive reception we have received for our latest colorful model from the mass media, retailers and users.
