Varimixer ERGO Automated Mixer: The New Standard in Kitchen Efficiency

From whipped cream to dough for a pumpernickel rye, mixers are a core component of many foodservice operations, particularly bakeries. However, mixers aren’t often seen as being driven by innovative technologies compared to other types of foodservice equipment, like baking ovens. Those perceptions will change with the new Kitchen Innovations Award-winning Varimixer ERGO Automated Mixer.

What is the ERGO Automated Mixer? It’s a revolutionary solution designed to streamline mixing processes while enhancing efficiency and reducing the burdens on labor. As the name suggests, the ERGO Automated Mixer enhances ergonomics during operation to make day-to-day use easier.

Save Labor with the Varimixer ERGO Automated Mixer

The Varimixer ERGO Automated Mixer isn’t just a mixer. It’s a labor-saving solution that empowers operators to work smarter, not harder. With its ergonomic design and industry-leading capacity, ERGO reduces stress on operators, allowing them to focus on other tasks.

It derives its inspiration from ergonomics, the discipline of understanding interactions between humans and the elements around them. Ergonomics uses that data to optimize human well-being and overall system performance. For example, the working height of the Varimixer ERGO Automated Mixer encourages ergonomic posture. Changing the mixing tools from the upright position eliminates the need to hunch when operating the unit. And a self-aligning bowl reduces the need for heavy lifting because the bowl position is automatically adjusted.

A Mixer that Increases Efficiency

In addition to saving labor with designs to make operation easier from a physical standpoint, the ERGO increases efficiency from an operational perspective. Its innovative controls, programmable recipes, and no-scheduled-maintenance design make it a valuable asset for any foodservice establishment looking to streamline operations and deliver consistent results.

The ERGO Automated Mixer boasts state-of-the-art touchscreen controls that are as intuitive as they are versatile. Operators can choose between manual operation or use the programmable automation mode, which tailors the mixing process to meet specific requirements. The touchscreen display offers easy visibility at a distance, allowing operators to monitor mixing parameters from across the kitchen. With multiple language operations and on-screen error diagnostics, the user experience works quickly for a global staff.

Innovative controls also contribute to the ERGO Automated Mixer’s ability to program and store complex, multi-step recipes. Operators can customize multiple steps of the mixing process, including mixing time, speed, pauses, and bowl lowering, to ensure repeatability and uniformity across batches. Automating the mixing process not only saves labor but also reduces the risk of human error, resulting in higher-quality products. Recipe programs are transferable onto other ERGO mixers via USB import, facilitating seamless replication of recipes across multiple kitchen locations. Furthermore, the ERGO’s advanced technology ensures that scaling up operations is both straightforward and efficient, ready to meet the demands of any kitchen.

Hygiene Made Easy

Hygiene is a top priority in any kitchen, and the Varimixer ERGO Automated Mixer delivers on all fronts. Constructed from high-quality stainless steel and equipped with IP53 standard ratings (with an optional IP54 upgrade), the ERGO withstands rigorous cleaning procedures without damage. All food contact points are removable for cleaning and sanitation, including the bowl guard, ingredient chute, mixing tools, and the bowl.

The Varimixer ERGO Automated Mixer sets a new standard in kitchen efficiency with its ergonomic design, innovative touchscreen controls, programmable recipe capabilities, and superior hygiene features. Its tall working height and self-aligning bowl mechanism enhance operator comfort and reduce strain while the intuitive touchscreen interface simplifies operation and maximizes productivity. With no scheduled maintenance requirements and durable stainless steel construction, the ERGO offers unmatched reliability and ease of maintenance. Making it the ideal choice for any professional kitchen looking to optimize efficiency and achieve consistent, high-quality results.
