What is a planet mixer?
A planetary mixer is an indispensable kitchen machine for both the professional chef and the home chef. Suitable for quickly and powerfully mixing dough or batter. This all-rounder can whisk, knead, stir, whisk or mix almost all ingredients. Ideal for making bread dough, pizza dough, cream, whipped cream, puree or soup. It owes its name to the fact that the mixer rotates around its own axis through the bowl while the bowl remains in place. In this way, he continuously picks up all the dough in the bowl and works thoroughly. You can easily change the whisks by tilting the head of the appliance (MPM 7) or by lowering the kettle (other models). So you can quickly start on the next job.
What should you pay attention to when buying a planetary mixer?
It is important that you know for which ingredients and which capacity you can use it. This determines the choice for your food processor. Ease of use is of course very important. The Maxima kitchen machines are very user-friendly due to the following points:

- Thanks to a tilting head or boiler lift, you can easily reach everything.

How do you clean and maintain a planetary mixer?
Cleaning is an important part of the ease of use. Thanks to the choice of materials and the smooth finish, cleaning is an easy job. Always remove the plug from the socket before you start. You can put the mixing kettle, dough hook, batter wing and whisk in the dishwasher. Warm water and a mild detergent are sufficient for cleaning. Do not use aggressive or cleaning agents or abrasive materials. You can dry it with a soft cloth. This way you can enjoy your Maxima planetary mixer for a long time and you always start clean and hygienic. Check regularly whether the gearbox is still oily enough, and add some grease if necessary. The same goes for the lever and elevator guides. This prevents rust from forming on these parts. Check the seal every now and then to see if it needs to be replaced.
