The Assistent Original is manufactured in the mill town of Ankarsrum, in Smεland, southern Sweden.
Please Note: Throughout this product's long history it has been known by a number of different names in different markets. Until recently the unit was marketed as the Electrolux Assistent in Europe and North America. At one point in the United States the unit was known as the Magic Mill Assistent DLX 2000, and in some cases incorrectly listed as the Electrolux Magic Mill Assistant. Due to corporate restructuring, Ankarsrum - the machine's historical motor manufacturer and a former division of Electrolux - is once again the company name producing the updated unit. A very similar model to this machine is also marketed today in the USA as the Verona Mixer Assistent.
What is the Verona Mixer? The Assistent model we offer in Canada is the N30, the newest machine with the updated casing and detachable power cord. This is the same Ankarsrum-manufactured machine as the Verona. The only difference is that the Canadian model features a 5-year warranty, while the USA machine has 2-year coverage.
The Assistent Original mixer has many exceptional features which make kitchen work fast and easy. The powerful and quiet motor comes with a 5-year warranty in Canada, (2-year in the USA) and has stepless speed control which determines the precise speed for each function, such as making large amounts of dough or sausage. The timer can turn off your machine after a pre-set time. The Assistent Original can knead up to 11 lbs. of dough at a time.
Each Assistent Original kitchen mixer includes a 7-litre stainless steel bowl, lid, dough roller, dough knife, spatula, cookie whips, dough hook and a double whisk with a 3.5 litre plastic bowl. The exceptionally powerful Ankarsrum motor has a stepless speed control, timer. Its unique gearing located underneath the bowl makes the machine extra strong and robust. The Assistant Original can knead up to five kilograms of dough at a time. Older accessories will work on new machines, and vice versa. Assistant Original is one of the most powerful kitchen machines on the market. The motor has a 600-watt rating, and unlike many of its competitors, in the event it becomes overloaded, it cuts out before overheating. You only need to unplug it, clean out the grinder, plug it back in and carry on.
Assistent Original is Sweden's Kitchen Champion: A favourite in Europe for over 70 years ... and counting
Since its launch in 1940, the excellently-designed Assistent Original has continued to evolve into the world-class mixer available today. In 2011, the Assistent Original mixer once again has received recognition and Awards of Excellence in Sweden and other European countries. Its unparalleled design has made it the go-to mixer for home bakers and those who love to cook. The unique design allows for easy bowl viewing and addition of ingredients without interrupting the mixing process by having to stop the machine. Bread makers know there is nothing on the market today that mimics hand-kneading of dough as closely as the Assistent's roller and scraper action - resulting in a fine textured, smooth elastic dough.
Developed, designed and manufactured in Sweden with the highest regard for quality, your Assistent Original will stand the test of time and be the mixer you can pass on to future generations.
Thank you for your professional advice to purchase the Electrolux DLX Magic Mill. After having to return 3 (three!!) broken down KitchenAid Professional 600 Mixers to the manufacturer within less than one year we had just about given up on finding a machine which would be able to mix and knead a heavy whole grain bread dough.
The Electrolux DLX Magic Mill, however, is everything (and a bit more) than what we had hoped to expect.
Contrary to the KitchenAid machine's high pitched scream, the noise level of the working loaded Magic Mill is pleasant and reassuring to a the ear and the totally different concept of the turning bowl with a spring loaded rotating dough roller and stationary bowl scraper is the work of a genius.
We have the Magic Mill now for about a month and it gets used every single day for bread and cake doughs, grain flaking and meat grinding.
Needless to say, the Magic Mill has not missed a beat and we are expecting to have it stand on our kitchen counter for at least the next 20 years.
We also purchased from you a meat grinder and a flaker to fit our new machine. Both attachments work flawless and the Magic Mill does not even slow down when "pushed for production".
