Gift Guide 2019: Bread Bakers Dream

December 18, 2019

It’s too late to get this in time for Christmas: I should have posted it earlier. Still, any passionate baker will be willing to wait.

Every bread baker I know swears by the Ankasrum Stand Mixer, which has been made in Sweden since 1940 and comes with a seven year guarantee.

This is a serious workhorse whose 600 watt motor is capable of mixing the 11 pounds of dough the bowl holds. It also comes with a wide range of attachments that will extrude pasta, juice lemons, grind meat and make sausage.

This isn’t a minor gift: the Ankasrum costs almost $700 and the attachments are extra. But it’s made to last a lifetime, and in this time of planned obsolescence, that’s extremely reassuring.
