With this kettle, the entire preparation process can be carried out in a single appliance, as the kettle can heat, stir and chill. With a free height of 600 mm between floor and kettle, the contents of the kettle can be emptied into containers placed on a lifting truck.
The combination of a stirrer, extra tilting height and an easy-open lid makes the OptiMix the most ergonomic solution on the market. Cleaning also takes place at a more comfortable working height than on traditional kettles.
Sizes from 40 to 300 litres and the option to connect the kettle to an external chilling system also make the OptiMix the obvious choice for kitchens with cook-and-chill production.
The kettle is available with nominal volumes of 40, 60, 80, 100, 120, 150, 200, 250 or 300 litres and the integration of the powerful stirrer makes for the perfect solution in terms of ease of use, hygiene and ergonomics when stirring is required.
The OptiMix is supplied as standard with AutoTemp 35 control, which includes electric tilt with TiltBack, digital control and display of the inner kettle temperature, stirrer control, an electronic water flow meter, a clock with an alarm function and WaterLevelAutomatic.
As an option the kettle is available with AutoTemp 55 control, which also includes food temperature control, nine dynamic heating steps and ten programs, of which five require chilling to be selected as an option. Ten sets of parameters can be saved for each program.
With its fully penetrating stirrer shaft, the kettle has no unhygienic joints around the food and the lifting handle on the stirrer is always clean and easily accessible.
The stirrer has six dynamic stirring patterns, which automatically adapt to the speed selected and therefore always operate optimally.
The speed can be set to any speed between 5 and 140/155 RPM. A slow rotation speed distributes the heat and treats the food gently, while a fast rotation speed mixes effectively and makes certain dishes lighter.
The powerful stirrer motor provides 164/358/477 Nm and can therefore also stir thick dishes. Among other things, you can mix forcemeat and prepare mashed potato from fresh potatoes in the kettle.
For safety reasons, the stirrer will stop when the lid is opened, but thickeners, spices, etc. can be added through the inspection hatch.
With the SlowMix accessory, the stirrer can rotate slowly when the kettle is tilted. This can be used to mix the contents of the kettle during pouring.
The stirrer also enables the MultiClean cleaning tool to be fitted, which saves both time and labour when cleaning the kettle.
