S-217 FireMixer Cooker Mixer

The S-217 FireMixer cooker mixer has been the industry-standard mixer for the confectionery industry for more than 100 years. The S-217 stirs the batch while it’s cooking, under digital temperature control and is used every day worldwide, to cook fudge, caramel, toffee, brittle, praline, nougat, halva, and fruit jams and jellies.

The WARRIOR model has a spring-loaded scraper agitator with fixed breaker bar for most recipes. The CHIEF model has a unique counter-rotating second agitator for stiff recipes or those needing extra agitation. Both models are available as gas or electric cookers.

The S-217 comes with a variety of agitator designs for specialty products, coated nuts, Rice Krispies treats, caramel corn, nutrition bars—virtually anything that requires controlled cooking and mixing without burning, the FireMixer can do.
