The Little Dutch Maid Hand Crank Kitchen Mixer, Our Most Popular Product.

This is the ultimate multi-purpose food processor it uses no electricity. Originally designed by an Amish gentleman to stand up to the rigorous processing of large amounts of food for large Amish families and gatherings, the Little Dutch Maid is built for commercial use. Components are German-made; the same type of parts used in high-end commercial-style machines.

Two-Speeds for making bread and for whipping up mixes. 

The Little Dutch Maid is one of the best dough machines on the market. In a comparison test against electric mixers, The Little Dutch Maid has received many thumbs up because of the slower speeds used.

For those who want a simple off-grid hand crank mixer to make bread and mixes, the standard Little Dutch Maid model as priced will be all that you will need. This is the unit that is purchased the most. It comes with the heavy hand crank base, the plastic mixing bowl, splash guard, lid, and the metal driver with the whisk attachments.

The Little Dutch Maid is the perfect off-grid hand crank kitchen mixer. It uses no electricity yet, a two-speed hand crank system will process large amounts of mixes quickly. Everything that you would normally do with an electric countertop mixer including dough for bread can easily be done with The Little Dutch Maid.

We take the unit one more step for customers who want to do more with it. We are the only company offering so many optional attachments to custom-fit individual needs.

Add the optional slicer and shredder option to make this unit a full-functioning kitchen off-the-grid appliance. Two appliances in one!

The Little Dutch Maid is a heavy-duty commercial grade, very easy-to-use hand crank mixer, for all your kitchen and cooking needs. The unit is perfect for summer camps, church camps, off-grid remote lifestyles, chuckwagon trail rides, emergency shelters, Dutch oven cook-off competitions, or any place where electricity is not available, limited wattage, or is unpredictable.

Electric mixers will tend to over mix the dough. Those who have been using electric mixers soon discover they obtain better mixes using The Little Dutch Maid.

You will be amazed how smoothly and easily this machine cranks; it is easy to use, easy to clean up and will process large batches of dough and mashed potatoes with little fatigue to the arms and hands. There is no need to speed up the cranking for creams and sauces. Just select between high speed or low speed to process dough and other foods like mashed potatoes or select the high speed for whipped creams and sauces.

Some have asked why does it cost so much? Being hand-cranked without a motor should make it cheap to make, right? Once you lift The Little Dutch Mixer out of the box you will quickly appreciate the value this machine brings to the kitchen. It is far heavier built than any high-end domestic kitchen appliance built today. It will likely outlast any electric model as well. Just tap on the top of the base and you will experience the same solid sound as tapping on a large commercial Hobart® mixer.  

Cottage Craft Works has it priced well below the few who do carry this mixer online. This makes The Little Dutch Maid a solid investment for a lifetime and on to your next generation. We also provide the most optional equipment to go with it. 

The base part of this machine is built like a tank; it has a thick heavy base that is powder-coated for many years of service. The weight of the mixer and the thick rubber feet keep it in place. There is no electric motor to ever wear out. The heavy-duty gears are made to hold up to hard and long use. No planned obsolescence here!

The base measures 12-1/4" L x 8-1/4" W x 5-1/2" T. without the hand crank handle. 

You would only expect to see this type of heavily constructed appliance to be made in the 50s, not in this lifetime with so many thin metals and plastics to wear out. The fact is many of the mixers made in the 50s mechanically could still be used today, except the electrical brushes and armature have just worn out, or the wiring has become brittle and unsafe to use. Without an electric motor, the base part of the Little Dutch Maid Mixer is just that heavy-duty to keep ongoing.

Our Customer Response:

Hi Paul,

The Mixer arrived today in excellent condition. It is everything we hoped it would be and after two cakes and a batch of Pizza Dough we are very pleased with the performance.
Thanks again for the help you gave us and the time you took to make this happen, it is greatly appreciated.

Warmest regards from the UK.


Hello again Paul,
Just a quick update on the mixer.
We have been using it now for a while and have found it to be far superior to any electric mixer we have ever owned. As a result we have used it far more than we would an electric one.
Even the children enjoy baking if they can use the Little Dutch Maid.
I just thought you would appreciate knowing that the effort you put into the transaction is appreciated, and we have been telling our friends and family about you and the mixer.
