Pro Restaurant Equipment Review
This is a nice machine that cuts an hour of work down to minutes. It’s straightforward and no frills. Push the top lever to divide, push the bottom level to raise the rounding plate. Voila! 30 perfectly shaped dough balls.
In our field experience, we haven’t found the productivity to be 6000 per hour. That would basically require making three batches per minute, an Olympian feat. Possible, in theory, if one person were standing next to the machine dividing then cutting, while someone else directly handed them dough. But most of the time, walking over to other equipment, and scraping dough out of the mixer slows down the process. We also wish that the capacity of the AE-DD30R and AE-DD36R were rated for more than 6 pounds. We suspect that is because they wanted to emphasize that the machine divides for only rolls or bun sized pieces. We have seen upper limits for similar divider/rounders from the Duchess line at around 11 oz. pieces and 15 pound batches. Since small pizzas or bread loaves start at about 11 ounces, halving the rating conveniently makes dividing anything bigger a moot point.
We also don’t recommend using the machine for anything other than dough. Has anyone tried? Well yes, we’ve had customers inquire about meatballs or falafels, and how this would automate the process. The results weren’t great, so keep looking for other solutions. Besides, it doesn’t seem worth trouble, as the cleanup would be quite a challenge. The blades are not removable, and removing tiny pieces of meat from the blades by hand seems like a very unpleasant thing to do. One more note for our customers, once you decide on a 30 or 36 cut, it cannot be changed. So please be very sure of what you want before placing the order.

From the Manufacturer
American Eagle Semi-Automatic Dough Divider Rounders are ideal for supermarket bakeries or retail bake shops! They offer excellent performance and value for your money! Use an electric divider rounder and take the hard labor and guesswork out of dividing and rounding dough. Our machine is able to ensure uniform dough volumes and consistently rounded shape, which helps you get the best possible output for baking. Our divider rounder is easy to operate and handles a variety of dough types and weights. The semi-automatic dual stage design divides the dough when you lower the top lever, then rounds the dough when you operate the variable speed motor control lever. The machine features a powerful 1HP motor and variable speed control that drives a heavy duty cam that rotates the dough tray, perfectly rounding the dough into 30 equally weighted pieces. The variable speed control allows you to fine tune the rounding action to suit the needs of your dough. A sealed motor design with overload protection and permanently lubricated drive shaft ensures years of low maintenance service. A heavy duty cast iron dividing head works with a set of stainless steel cutting knives, which ensure years of reliable and trouble free operation. The dividing head can be tilted to the side, and the heat treated enamel white finish is easy to wipe down, helping you to easily keep the machine clean. An independent power swith and start button prevents the machine from accidentally starting without operator intervention. The machine uses 220V/60Hz/1Ph power, and is covered by a 1 year limited warranty.
