The slings one stop dough maker is a manual atta maker and I distinctly remember this model as we used to own one of these as a kid.
Design of this product is actually very basic and all you can use it for is to knead dough and store it. There is a big large capacity bowl with a handlebar on it. All you need to do is place the flour and using one of the three measuring cups, a little oil, pour in water and start to rotate the handle.
As the container is made out of see through unbreakable high quality food grade plastic, you can see as the dough gets kneaded and have a greater control on the consistency of the dough.
The handlebar present onto one side of the container gives you ample amount of grip to hold the device while you are using. The need for manual labour to turn the kneader around for the dough is the only drawback for such models of dough makers.

You can look at the progress through the see through unbreakable glass. You can also use this to cut vegetables and churn out some tasty buttermilk. Though, our tests and research has pointed towards the fact that it is good for churning and kenading, but not so great for cutting vegetables.
A free scoop spoon is also provided with the dough maker but there is no manufacturer’s warranty provided for this dough maker.

Buying Guide: Things to look for, when buying the Atta dough maker
The main reason why people buy a dough maker is because it makes their life easy. People who wish to make rotis or delicious theplas but hate kneading dough find a dough maker to be an incredible boon.
But if you end up choosing a dough maker that is annoying and does not knead properly. Today, we are going to make sure that you won’t end up with any issues as such. The following is a well researched and comprehensive guide that is filled with all the important factors one has to consider while buying an atta dough maker.
First of all, you have to understand that there are 456789 types of atta dough makers.
1. Manual Dough Maker:
This is the most basic device out of all. Though basic, it is by far the best handy device which can be used by almost all everyone and anyone. The working principle of this dough maker is simple and is the foundation for many different types of dough makers. There are at the least 2 or more blunt blades present in a bowl with a handle attached to them. When closed, the handle sticks out while the blades are present inside.
All you need to do is pour in flour and water into the dough maker and rotate the blades using the handle provided. The dough will be needed. This is a faster option than kneading of the dough manually and is the most mobile, portable and most importantly, the most economic option available.
2. Electric Dough Maker :
An extension to the manual dough maker, as the name states, the electric dough maker makes use of electricity to prepare the dough. The principle of operation of this device is same as that of a manual dough maker except for the usage of electricity. Just pour in the flour, water and switch it on. It does all the work for you. They save you a huge load of time and energy but charge you with an expensive price and electricity bill.
3. Vertical cutter makers
These dough makers are more like a mixer or a grinder or a food processor. They look as such too. Used for commercial places or in restaurants, these dough makers can be used not just for kneading of dough but for batter mixing, nut, meat and vegetable chopping too. But these cutters are not really capable of giving you a good consistency roti atta dough.
4. Spiral Dough Maker:
As the name says, they have a spiral shaped rod with a netted agitator. When switched on, the netted rod remains stationary while the bowl rotates around its own axis and thus kneads the dough.
The dough from these dough makers is well blended and has a great consistency. Also, the noise from these dough makers is less and bearable but it cannot produce a lot of dough in a single go. Not ideal for larger families or parties but is a good baker’s companion.
5. Planetary Dough Makers:
This one too, has a name that fits its operation style. This one is a large machine with an agitator and a huge bowl with a mixing ladle in it. When we pour in the flour and switch it on, it moves in a planetary motion, similar to how the planets revolve around the sun.
The agitator ladle moves about its own axis and also rotates in a circular fashion around the device. The bottom bowl also rotates in an anticlockwise direction thus kneading the dough from all sides.
Larger in size than most dough makers, these dough makers are usually used for commercial and restaurant purposes. It can and is used not just for kneading but for complex veggie chopping and even meat or other dough mixing. They are a bit of a noisy models.
6. Tilt Head Design:
The tilt head design is more like the Spiral dough maker but with the ladle agitator head can be tilted into the bowl below and it is the agitator that moves in a spiral fashion, thus kneading the dough. It is an open device thus helps you in adding more ingredients as per your requirement.
It is a great device to cook cookies and bread dough among other bakery items. You can lock in the head so that it does not move about and aids in smoother usage of the device.
7. The bowl lift design:
These model of dough makers are the exact opposite of the tilt head design and work with the same principle of operation as the spiral dough maker. Except here, instead of the fixing of the head or the bowl,the bowl is free to move either up or down.
You first pour in the flour and water into the bowl and then the bowl is lifted in an upwards direction where the kneading begins within the fixed top of the ladle agitator. It is also a great tool for bakers and it can be used for mashing up potatoes or kneading cookie dough too.
While those were the different types of dough maker, we shall be focussing on the two most important and mostly used dough makers:
- Electric Dough Makers and
- Manual dough makers.

- Initially, take all the ingredients like atta flour, water and oil using the measuring cups provided along with the kit.
- If you are using an electric dough maker, then simply switch on the device and you can see that the kneading process starts as the blunt blades present within the dough maker start spinning and kneading of dough.
