Yeah,  Chau has sold a number of us on the Famag, I don't think anyone has been disappointed.

What a great thread, although now >1000 out of pocket after reading this, couldn't resist the temptation to fork out on a famag spiral mixer!

The things I do to obtain the perfect Neapolitan pizza....  :pizza:

Did a tester baguette dough between the KA and the Famag, and without a doubt the Famag makes a better dough.  The loaves come out bigger and fluffier.

For science sake, was the mix time the same or did you go by other factors to determine it was finished?

I mixed both doughs to a similar strength and consistency.   Keeping the mix time the same wouldn't be as comparable of a test since the bowl size and mixing speed and action is different.

As Chau said in one of his earlier posts, the dough just feels different when it comes out of the spiral mixer,  in my case, the Ank.   I wouldn't say night and day different, but it definitely feels different in a good way.  And yes,  I bought mine after reading this thread.
