OptiMix - controls

AutoTemp 35

The display normally shows the actual temperature of the inner kettle, but a keypress gives access to display and alter the temperature setpoint. This is set quickly and precisely between 1-120°C. The large arrows change the setting by 10°C, while the small arrows change the setting by 1°C. The heating power is controlled automatically to ensure that the temperature setpoint is achieved.

 

The speed and stirring pattern of the stirrer are easily controlled using the keys on the second line of the control panel. Six dynamic stirring patterns are available and the speed can be adjusted to between 5 and 1551 RPM. Certain stirring patterns have a limited speed, determined by the purpose of the stirring pattern.

 

The stirring patterns available include continuous stirring in both directions and several stirring patterns with variable reversals and pauses. These stirring patterns are intended for normal stirring, gentle stirring and powerful stirring/mashing. One stirring pattern is optimised for cleaning using the cleaning tool.

 

The stirring patterns are designed to automatically adjust to the set stirring speed and therefore always operate optimally. Slow stirring gives fewer reversals and longer pauses, while fast stirring gives more reversals and shorter pauses. Combined with the option to set the speed from 5 to 1551 RPM, this unique function gives excellent results, regardless of whether you need effective, fast and powerful stirring or gentle, slow stirring.

 

For safety reasons, the stirrer will stop when the lid is opened. When the SlowMix option is selected, the stirrer can however rotate slowly with an open lid while a key is held down and the kettle is tilted. This simplifies emptying and gives more uniform results if the food is to be divided between several containers.

 

The control has an integrated water flow meter and water is added to the kettle by setting the required quantity and starting the filling process. Filling stops automatically when the required quantity of water has been added. The required quantity can be set to one decimal place. The remaining quantity is displayed while the water is being added. The user can easily stop the filling process and adjust the required quantity. Small quantities of water are best added manually. Water is added to the kettle when the key is held down and the quantity added is shown in the display to one decimal place. As a cheaper option, the water flow meter can be omitted and the quantity of water added calculated from an adjustable constant in the user menu. This works best with a stable water pressure. Alternatively, the time during which water is to be added can be set directly in the display in minutes and seconds. The water passes through a large drip-free spout on the pillar.

 

The timer function stops the heating supply and activates an alarm at a set time or after a set period of time. The time is shown in the display and a visual or audible alarm can be connected if desired. The kettle’s tilt function is operated using keys on the control panel and the TiltBack function means that the kettle will automatically return slightly after tilting is stopped. This minimises overrun during emptying and makes pouring easier. WaterLevelAutomatic ensures that the water level in the kettle’s steam generator is correct. This prevents unnecessary stoppages and also prevents the kettle from boiling dry.

 

As an option, the kettle can be set up so that the food is chilled in the kettle after preparation. The chilling process uses water from the mains supply or chilled water, which is recirculated through an external chilling system. The external chilling system solution is only available on the OptiMix 100 to 300 litre versions.

 

If chilling is performed using mains water, considerable water savings can be made with the static chilling steps from 1 to 9, which are selected in the user menu. If a low value is set, the chilling process will save water but it will also be slower. Operation of the chilling function is integrated into the control panel and after the completion of chilling the kettle’s steam chamber is emptied of excess water and the kettle is automatically readied for heating again. The user must therefore not operate any handles or valves when starting/stopping chilling.

Heating

IThe display normally shows the actual temperature of the food, but a keypress gives access to display and alter the temperature setpoint. This is set quickly and precisely to between 1 and 120°C. The heating supply is controlled automatically to ensure that the required food temperature is reached. Controlling the heating supply according to the food temperature ensures that the required food temperature is achieved and maintained, and means that the user need only give the kettle minimal attention.

 

To prevent burning and enable gentle heating, the heating power can be adjusted in dynamic steps from 1 to 9. These steps control the temperature of the inner kettle in relation to the food temperature. If a low value is set, the heating process will be gentle but slow. If a high value is set, it will not be as gentle but it will be faster. This makes for easy and safe heating of milk products for example.

 

Stirrer

The speed and stirring pattern of the stirrer are easily controlled using the keys on the second line of the control panel. Six dynamic stirring patterns are available and the speed can be adjusted to between 5 and 1551 RPM. Certain stirring patterns have a limited speed, determined by the purpose of the stirring pattern.

 

The stirring patterns available include continuous stirring in both directions and several stirring patterns with variable reversals and pauses. These stirring patterns are intended for normal stirring, gentle stirring and powerful stirring/mashing. One stirring pattern is optimised for cleaning using the cleaning tool.

For safety reasons, the stirrer will stop when the lid is opened. When the SlowMix option is selected, the stirrer can however rotate slowly with an open lid while a key is held down and the kettle is tilted. This simplifies emptying and gives more uniform results if the food is to be divided between several containers.

 

Filling the kettle with water

The control has an integrated water flow meter and water is added to the kettle by setting the required quantity and starting the filling process. Filling stops automatically when the required quantity of water has been added. The required quantity can be set to one decimal place. The remaining quantity is displayed while the water is being added. The user can easily stop the filling process and adjust the required quantity.

 

Small quantities of water are best added manually. Water is added to the kettle when the key is held down, and the quantity added is shown in the display to one decimal place. As a cheaper option, the water flow meter can be omitted and the quantity of water added calculated from an adjustable constant in the user menu. This works best with a stable water pressure. Alternatively, the time during which water is to be added can be set directly in the display in minutes and seconds.
The water passes through a large drip-free spout on the pillar.

 

Programs

The control has 10 programs, each with 10 variants. The five programs include chilling functions. The programs each execute a series of functions automatically, so making the kettle much easier to use, as heating, the cooking probe, chilling, stirring and water filling can all be controlled. For each program, the user can save 10 sets of associated values for use with different tasks.

 

The programs include timer functions, cook-and-hold, stirring programs and delayed start. Entire processes can also be performed automatically using heating and cooking followed by chilling. The current time is shown in the display and a visual or audible alarm can be connected if desired.

 

The kettle’s tilt function is operated using keys on the control panel and the TiltBack function means that the kettle will automatically return slightly after tilting is stopped. This ensures that the flow is stopped quickly on emptying and makes pouring easier.

 

Reliability

WaterLevelAutomatic ensures that the water level in the kettle’s steam generator is correct. This prevents unnecessary stoppages and also prevents the kettle from boiling dry.

 

Chilling

As an option, the kettle can be set up so that the food is chilled in the kettle after preparation. The chilling process uses water from the mains supply or chilled water, which is recirculated through an external chilling system. The external chilling system solution is only available on the OptiMix 100 to 300 litre versions.

 

Operation of the chilling function is integrated into the control panel, and after the completion of chilling the kettle’s steam chamber is emptied of excess water and the kettle is automatically readied for heating again. The user must therefore not operate any handles or valves when starting/stopping chilling.

 

The combination of food temperature control and stirring provides an ideal basis for effective, controlled chilling of the kettle. The required food temperature is set as for heating, and chilling then takes place until the required food temperature has been reached. If chilling takes place using mains water, considerable water-savings can be achieved using the dynamic chilling steps from 1 to 9. If a low value is set, chilling is water-saving but slower.

 

With a high value, the chilling process will be fast but use more water. The chilling step that should be selected will depend on the food and the immediate situation in the kitchen. Regardless of the situation, controlling the water consumption based on the temperature of the food and the selected chilling step ensures that the water is used optimally.
