Welcome to the Kemplex customer service.

How can we help?

Can you apply an inverter to the machine?

The inverter, i.e. the speed control, is available only for the following models:
SF 500, SF 600, SF E 500, and EASY 600.

I have an SF 600. Can I apply the cutting device?

You can apply this accessory only if the machine was originally purchased with a special two-speed motor (450/900 revs) and a reinforced work surface. Otherwise, you can’t.

Can I make egg pasta with a planetary mixer?

You can make egg pasta with a planetary mixer, although we recommend using a spiral mixer.
If you do, the capacity will be much lower (for example, with a PL 10, you can make about 1 kg of egg pasta).

For what kind of dough is a planetary mixer better?

A planetary mixer is recommended for soft mixtures, such as whipped cream, dough for desserts, and sponge cake.
Planetary mixers are for soft dough. For example, with the PL 7, you can obtain up to 1 kg of bread dough (keep in mind that the dough must be well hydrated with 50-55% of liquid).
With the PL 10, you can obtain up to 3 kg of bread dough.
The PL 7 can operate for up to 2 hours with hard dough, and up to 3 or 4 hours with cream and similar products.

In what direction does the attachment of a planetary mixer turn?

The attachments of the PL 7 and PL 10 planetary mixers turn anticlockwise, while those of the PL 20-30-40 turn clockwise.

Do all planetary mixers have a removable bowl?

No, only the PL 7 and PL 10 have a removable bowl.

Can Kemplex planetary mixers stay on a trolley?

The PL 7 and PL 10 are countertop models, so they can.
The PL 20 is not a countertop but can be installed on a trolley.
The PL 30 and PL 40 cannot.

What production output do the Kemplex planetary mixers have?

It depends on the type of product. If you want to make mayonnaise, cream, or custard, the output is very different compared to shortcrust pastry, sponge cake, and biscuits.

Should the attachments be changed based on what you’re making? Is there a difference?

The whip is for very soft mixtures, such as mayonnaise, whipped cream, and custard. The spatula is normally used for soft dough (e.g. shortcrust pastry, biscuits, cakes, and pancakes). Finally, the hook is for hard dough (e.g. bread, pizza, and focaccia).
