Built-In Safety Features

For user safety, a clear bowl guard with an ingredient chute is included. This unit will run without a bowl guard to make it easy to add ingredients and see your batch more clearly. As an added safety feature, the unit will not start if the bowl lift is not in the raised position. A convenient audible beep lets you know when the bowl is not properly placed. The spring-loaded bowl lift is easy to use and secures into the up or down position.

You can attach an Avantco #5 meat grinder or pasta kit (sold separately) to make the most of your limited kitchen space. For user convenience, the bowl may be completely removed when using the attachment hub but it's important to be aware that the mixer will still run and the head will still rotate without the bowl in place.

Customer Q&A Ask a Question

Does the hp (horsepower) rating of this mixer reflect the output to the mixer bowl?
Our motor hp reference is meant to indicate the horsepower rating of the motor itself and not the mixer's horsepower output to the mixer bowl.
I am looking for a mixer for my bakery. Would this be a good option?
This mixer is an excellent value for the price and is perfect for standard-duty applications. Due to the heavy usage required of a bakery mixer, we recommend choosing a more durable option specifically made for the challenge of heavy use. For more information on which mixer will be best for you, check out our Commercial Mixer Buying Guide!
Can I use this standard-duty mixer to make pizza dough?
This standard-duty mixer can be used to make the occasional small batch of pizza dough, however, it should function on low speed to prevent burning out the motor. For larger, more frequent batches of pizza dough, check out our selection of spiral dough mixers!
Is this mixer rated for heavy-use?
No, this mixer is rated for standard-duty use. This means that it is ideal for mixing egg whites, whipped cream, cake batter, and occasional batches of pizza dough on low speed.

This allows each unit to deliver the same reliability and control as a floor mixer, while saving you precious kitchen space and money.  Each model boasts an above industry average, near full horsepower motor. Its full gear drive gives you added reliability and power, without the fear of slipping, like a belt-driven machine. This series gives you maximum user control to ensure that cake batter, whipped potatoes, or even aerated egg whites are prepared to perfection. Five variable speeds and a thirty-minute timer are available on the easy-to-use digital control pad to help tackle any recipe. These mixers come with all stainless steel attachments which include a wire whip, dough hook, and a flat beater. Unlike many other competitors, Avantco countertop mixers have a number five attachment hub for added versatility! This gives the mixers the additional capabilities to grind meat and even make pasta! Every Avantco mixer comes with an eight quart stainless steel bowl which is the largest size you’ll find for countertop mixers, and is capable of mixing over three pounds of flour in a single batch. The height of the bowl is adjusted by the lift to allow for easy removal and to begin operation when in the raised position. A safety guard is also available to prevent any accidents or splashes while the mixer is running, and has an ingredient chute for easy pouring into the bowl. For user convenience, the mixers will operate without the safety guard to be able to add ingredients without anything in the way.  With its unique design, sleek stainless steel trim, and intuitive control panel, this unit will become your favorite addition to your kitchen.

A commercial mixer is a critical part of many foodservice businesses, especially bakeries. That’s why we’ve laid out our commercial mixers according to the major factors that most impact their performance. The first consideration is the type of mixer that you want. Planetary mixers are the most common and versatile type. They mix ingredients together in batter or dough with whisks, beaters, or hooks, for high volume jobs. Spiral mixers are great for specializing in dough and with other mixtures that have a thick texture, making them great for bread and pretzel bakeries. Last, vertical cutter mixers can be used like a giant blender for everything from salad prep to dough preparation but it gives your baked goods a different consistency than dough prepared in other mixers. Each of these mixer types is also divided into standard, medium, and heavy duty applications. Standard duty mixers give you the power needed to create foods in smaller batches. Medium duty models are good for larger quantities of food and keep up with demand. And heavy duty units are the best in terms of strength, reliability, durability, and power for bakeries and pizzerias. Every commercial mixer also comes with a different transmission. Belt driven units use a simple strap system, similar to an engine belt, to turn the agitator inside the mixing bowl which makes them easier to maintain and repair. Direct drive mixers let you change speeds with the simple push of a button, and gear driven mixers utilize an intricate inner assembly of gears and cogs to prevent slips and stutters. Finally , variable speed mixers are made specifically to deliver torque and power for light duty use. Mixers are also available with different size bowls, from 5 – 220 quarts to accommodate the quantity of ingredients that you want to mix together. Depending on the size, you can use a smaller unit on the countertop or a work table, while a larger product is best used on the floor. You can also find commercial mixers with different speed options to operate quickly or slowly, and each commercial mixer comes with an internal motor that ranges from ½ to 7 hp. Best of all, you can easily find dozens of models that are NSF Certified so you can be sure the unit you buy is easy to clean and sanitize.
