What’s your favorite cookie?

The word “COOKIE” brings a smile to your face.  How can it not?  Nothing can be more comforting than a warm cookie and glass of cold milk; or a cup of tea and a Bourbon biscuit.  We make mixers and cookie/biscuit sandwiching machines for manufactures of sweets all around the world.  It’s fascinating to discover what cookies or biscuits (depending on where you are located) are popular in South Africa, China or Brazil.

In Japan, finished squares of Yokan (which look very much like our American chocolate fudge), are wrapped in cherry leaves and served as a sweet indulgence with a cup of tea.



In Spain they prefer Panellets which are a traditional dessert made with marzipan (almonds and sugar) usually covered in pine nuts.



The macaroon is a cookie fillmacaroonsed with a variety of fillings and flavors. Paris, France is the place to visit for  these!





Sweden loves their Pepparkakors.  Paper-thin and spicy, these cookies are a beloved Swedish Christmas tradition.



No matter where you are in the world, cookies and biscuits are an important part of our culture.  It could be Boortsog in China, Pryanik in Russia or Stroopwaffels in Belgium, nothing is more delicious!

We all have our favorites———–What’s yours?




3 Ways Peerless Is Keeping Up With Market Demands

Peerless is making changes to meet the market demand.  Change is good and keeps things progressing.  So with that said, we changed our product offering and lead the way with innovation, sanitation and durability with three new advanced ideas the market is needing.

1.) Peters Sandwiching machines have been simplified with the addition of a servo drivenpeters servo front system. This system allows for easy integration with many packaging systems.  The servos are positioned on the non-operator side of the machine which allows for easier maintenance access, too. Oreo-Pile



2.) KleanVue Mixers, the “New Kid On The Block” is making waves in the market for its kleanvue-front-viewinnovative tubular frame design allowing for the ultimate in sanitation for open frame mixers.  The inter-locking tubular design increases frame strength and the placing all the drive and tilt mechanisms on the same side reduces the need for safety guarding on both sides of the mixer.

3.) Hallmark is back on the floor and is perfect for the baker with small batches but hallmark-overall_Webdemand high performance.







These new changes will help the baker and manufacturing plant with the demands of todays market.  Peerless is dedicated to meeting the needs of our customers with superior service and unmatched reliability.  See our website or call us for more information.

Roller Bar Mixers at Peerless

Peerless Food Equipment is known for the quality bakery equipment that we manufacture.  One of our best known mixer models is the Roller Bar – or High Speed Mixer.  These mixers are ideal for most types of breads, rolls, buns, flour tortillas, croissants, bagels, pizza and english muffins. A single end drive system provides substantial advantages including stronger drives, shafts and bearings, greater bowl tilt flexibility, and a cleaner, more compact design.

The uniquely designed shaft seals are sanitary and easy to remove for quick clean-up and minimal downtime. Heavy duty stainless steel jackets are standard on all Roller Bar Mixer bowls for efficient dough temperature control.

The Roller Bar Agitiator with Breaker Bar helps to sufficently mix the dough without kneading or processing the dough.  The options of a refrigerated bowl, bowl end cooling and Cold Bar Plus technology reduce the heat generated from the mixing process.  Visit here to see a write up of our Roller Bar Mixer in Baking & Snack International in the Horizontal Mixer Showcase.

Custom built Peerless Roller Bar Mixers are available in a variety of optional features for the best, most efficient mix for your product. Other options include our Dough Quality Controller (DQC®) System and our ColdBar® and ColdBarPlus® Refrigeration Systems.

What does a Brown Bear have in common with a Peerless HS16FD?

Interesting question – eh?  An adult brown bear typically weighs about 1,400 lbs and a Peerless HS16FD can easily accommodate a dough ball that weighs 1,400 lbs!  Now, that’s a lot of bread dough!

But, that’s EXACTLY what this mixer was made to do!  It’s on its way to Georgia to make potato bun and bread dough.   This HS16FD is a truly robust mixer.  This unit has solid stainless steel base plate, solid stainless steel columns, a heavy-duty stainless unibody frame, a stainless steel bowl sheet, bowl ends, canopy and a stainless steel agitator, shaft and breaker bar…. (are you beginning to see a trend?)

The heavy-duty body, that is almost entirely stainless steel construction, was built to last.  This high-quality mixer weighs in at OVER 20,000 LBS in weight!  And, all the stainless steel on this mixer makes it almost sparkle too!  Not only is it the workhorse of the bakery… it will be the prettiest machine there!
