This is a planetary mixer it is not designed to knead dough. A planetary mixer has a stationary bowl with a vertical mixer head that rotates in a clockwise motion. And as you have noticed the dough wraps around the dough hook. A large piece of dough will drag against the inside of the bowl. That will create friction, causing heat that destroys the yeast in the dough. But it still does not knead the dough effectively. If you have a small amount of dough it does absolutely nothing.Hi, am new to baking and wondering if the dough hook is actually doing its job when the dough sticks to the hook? Or it is just a waste of time?
They can and do quite well but for continuous dough production the spiral and fork mixers are superior.
