How much cookie dough does a baker scoop before feeling that familiar ache in their hand? Or the pinch in their pocket?

For most bakeries, commissaries and large baked goods manufacturers, cookies are a staple offering, always a favorite with customers. Depending on size, market and operational capacity, a bakery could be producing a few hundred to a few thousand cookies a day.

According to Jamie Bobyk, a former banquet chef "Cookie dough scooping involves force applied against the wrist in grasping the handle of the scooper against the dough, and force applied by the muscles in and around the thumb when releasing the scooper. Scooping - everyday, for hours a day - can lead to personal injuries like carpel tunnel syndrome or tendonitis, detrimental to overall health and long term well being."

That’s where a cookie cutting machine could prove beneficial. Investing in a cookie dough depositor means the machine does all the portioning and cutting work allowing bakery staff to focus on other production activities.

Unifiller’s Mini-Dopositor, for example, cuts and deposits up to 3600 accurate portions of cookie dough per hour – one operator can deposit up to 5 sheet pans per minute. Other features and benefits include:

  •     Reduce product/ingredient waste through accurate portioned depositing
  •     Fast & efficient depositing - just fill the hopper and press the start button
  •     Produce consistent quality products without overworking the dough
  •     Affordable and compact
  •     Easy to setup and disassemble for cleaning
  •     Multiple nozzles and die shapes available for product variety

Unifiller’s newly launched Mini-Dopositor can handle cookie production with or without inclusions, bake and break, gourmet and gluten-free cookies, cookie dough pucks, brownie and bar depositing. It can additionally portion food products such as meatballs, burrito fillings and meat patties.

What’s better the dopositor fits the budget and space requirements of smaller bakeries wanting to slowly amp up their cookie production.Unifiller also offers a standard dopositor suitable for mid-sized volume and a HD dopositor ideal for wholesale and high volume production.
