History

In contrast to its modern look, the Ankarsrum has a long history that dates back more than 80 years.

The Ankarsrum mixer was first launched under the brand name Assistant in 1940. Invented by Alvar Lenning and manufactured by Electrolux, the mixer helped to facilitate changing eating habits during the 2nd World War. Specifically, it helped to pair convenience with strong home baking, jam and syrup-making demands. A list of ‘crisis recipes’ accompanied each machine.

Sales of the reliable Assistant were strong from the offset. Powered by a 250W motor, the first edition (beige in colour) became a common sight in kitchens across Sweden.

In 1969, production and assembly moved from Motala to Ankarsrum (Sweden). This is the primary build site to this day.

For over 80 years, the core concepts of the Ankarsrum mixer have remained unchanged. However, the machine has been honed in key areas. Additionally, it has a growing array of accessories for home and professional use. Furthermore, the model now has a wide colour choice to suit each taste.
