We now have 4 different dough hook attachments. We much prefer this corkscrew shaped one, which seems to grab and blend a lot more effectively than the other "Captain Hook" style design. I will say that the white coated versions are MUCH easier to clean and simpler to wipe down to scrape dough off of it. Those are also for sale from WebstaurantStore.com. We have a lot of attachments for our mixer, which is over 11 years old and still going strong. Most of our attachments are just as old, and all of them are still going strong too. This dough hook is great for exactly that: DOUGH. We are a gluten-free family, so I make all our own breads and pizza. I make two dozen burger-size buns at a time, and freeze them. We make pizza or stromboli on this machine at least once per week, if not more. Our 6qt stainless mixer bowl pops into the over for 110-degree proofing on the dough for an hour, which saves time and dishes. It is amazingly convenient and easy to have high quality scratch breads and doughs all the time at home, with little time invested in the results. It is also a money saver too! Buying similar gluten free bakery buns at grocery stores is 100 times the cost of making them at home. NOTE: The aluminum pieces CANNOT be put in the dishwasher. You will lose the nice finish if you do. They will still function, but they will be harder to clean if they've lost the nice finish, due to corrosion crud on the surface. So do take care to wash accordingly and preserve your pieces for years to come.

This dough hook is very well made and super durable. It can power through tough dough like nobody's business and has held up beautifully for a long time now.

The spiral shaped dough hook (vs. the C hook) was one of KA great improvements. The shape of this hook takes full advantage of the mixer's motion and provides a fold and knead motion much like you would do by hand. The burnished aluminum finish isn't my favorite. I'd love to eventually upgrade to the coated.

I use the dough hook for a large variety of things, including pizza dough, pasta dough, or bread dough. I love making things from scratch, and this dough helps with that.
