Pro Restaurant Equipment Review
The AE-DS52B is our most popular sized dough sheeter. All of the American Eagle "B" dough sheeters feature fold-up wings, making it easy to keep out of the way when counter space is needed for other purposes. In that sense, it is similar to the AE-DS45B in design. However, the AE-DS52B has a much longer roller, a feature that comes in handy since dough tends to spread in width as well as length. Extra working capacity also improves yield, as the most waste comes from the ends after making all the cookie cutouts, or other circular shapes. The belt drive and motor is made from the same technology as its older cousins, the floor model AE-DS52 and AE-DS65. It seems like the AE-DS52B is designed to last and work for years, even under the toughest commercial application.
We also like the fact that there's no paint anywhere close to food contact surfaces. With a construction made from quality materials, such as the polished alloy and stainless steel, it easily meets the strictest OSHA and food service sanitation standards. The smooth, reversible motion keeps the dough cool/moist because there's minimal contact with hands. We also like the sturdy feel of the machine. Once the wings are lowered, the machine does not move because of rubber feet. We are also noting what the American Eagle folks call 'set and go' integrated lock design is simply a well-made handle that doesn't slip and cause variations in thickness- something that happens over time with materials of cheaper quality. We should also mention a small downside to the special pvc surface. On the one hand, the material is tough and keeps the dough from sticking. On the other hand, if your product contains a lot of dye, like anything else plastic, over time the working surface may discolor. (Think spaghetti sauce in plastic food storage) However, we think that it's a minor inconvenience that doesn't affect the machines functionality, while having the machine gives operators a big boost in efficiency. Besides, replacement belts are easily purchased with American Eagle.
*Importantly, we can't stress enough that the machine is a 220V/60Hz/1 Phase machine. Before ordering or installing, please verify with an electrician or licensed contractor that you have the correct electrical connection in your space. You can choose to install hardwired to your power line or using a plug in accordance to your local electrical codes and standards.
