Cook off teams have discovered this non-electric mixer is perfect for mixing sauces, making dough, and dessert dishes for all types of cook off competitions.

Competition cook off teams from across the country are finding the hand crank Amish made Little Dutch Maid Mixer gives them the upper hand in this highly competitive sport.

The Little Dutch Maid is a commercial grade non-electric hand crank mixer. It was designed and built for cooking large batches of food for Amish weddings and gatherings.

Cook off teams have discovered this non-electric mixer is perfect for mixing sauces, making dough, and dessert dishes for all types of cook off competitions.

The simple two speed hand crank option allows the mixer to be used for whipping or making dough without needing to speed up the cranking process.

This is not a cheaply made hand crank plastic mixer either. The heavy metal powder coated base is built like a tank, yet it is still easy to transport and durable enough to take the beating of season after season competitions.

The mixer base adapts to Bosh top load mixer attachments and even fits an optional food slicer and shredder for vegetables, such as potatoes slices, salads and garnishes.

The mixer comes with a durable flexible plastic Bosh mixing bowl that will bounce off the ground if dropped, a bread hook, rotating beater whisk, and a splash guard made of high impact plastic.

Most teams will purchase and extra mixer bowl to keep a rotation of having a clean one ready to go for the next event.

For those who prefer a top side mixer there is even an Amish converted Kitchen Aide mixer conversion with a heavy duty hand crank for non-electric cook off competition as well.

You can purchase both of the Amish non-electric hand crank mixers at the popular back-to-basics site Cottage Craft Works .com

      Simple, they don't have power available or the rules state everything has to be prepped by hand.

      Liz, very interesting hub, I've never seen the like. Is it not a little bit like reinventing the wheel adding a hand crank? I don't know much about the Amish life style other what I have seen in films, but this has left me totally bewildered. I am not making fun of it, it is just I find it difficult to comprehend why.

      Why do the cook off people find it better than using a powered version?

      with respect
