The Formatic, available through Erika-Record, guarantees accurate forming and portioning of a variety of doughs. Suited to a variety of dough textures and consistencies, the Formatic uses paddles to gently press the dough into the required shape. Assisted by a wire drum scraper, the dough is then smoothly ejected. Every drum can be tailored to your design requirements. The unit is ideal for novelty cookies and shortbreads, the company says.
