Sheeters and Spinners

Hand tossing pizza is an art, but Univex has it down to a science! Sprizza is like having your very own expert pizza maker in-house. This bench model cold-spinning system creates perfectly spun pizza dough every time with the consistent quality you thought you could only get from the hands of an expert.
Univex has two powerful hand Mixers for you to choose from. The quick coupling Cyclone is powered by three different motors with interchangeable 10" and 14" shafts. Available in several sizes. Its ergonomic handle and lightweight fiberglass body helps reduce muscle strain and fatigue. An ideal choice for preparing mixtures, soups, and sauces. The Cyclone liquefies soups and purees fruits and vegetables directly in the cooking pot using cutlery steel knives. A safety-protected continuous blending switch offers convenience and peace of mind. The Vortex, our most powerful quick coupling device, builds upon all of the Cyclone’s functionality with more horsepower and longer blades (14" or 18").
