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 heavy-duty mixers!
Why is there grease leaking out of my mixer?
The leaking is caused by grease breaking down inside the gear box. The grease can be replaced in the gear box to fix this issue. It’s recommended this is done by a qualified service technician.

Commercial Mixers

Considering the purchase of a commercial mixer for your business? Check out this short video to find out about different types of commercial mixers and what features work well for different applications.

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.

    The MX20 is a great choice for light to moderate doughs. Make sure you do not change gears while in operation. The four included attachments are more than enough to get pretty much any operation going. We really enjoyed the extra beater with the Teflon scraper that makes sure that the sides of the bowl are incorporated into the dough.

    Really big and a pain to put bowl in place but is a powerful mixer and works good for occasional big orders I have. Was a little too big. I should have gotten the smaller one but price was very attractive on this one. You will get your moneys worth out of it. No doubt about it. Honestly this is a professional affordable mixer. But I would go smaller if I could.
    Love this mixer, we have been using it for the past couple of months for cookie dough. However, the silicone paddle it came with ended up ripping off and is not usable anymore. When we switched to using the non-silicone attachment, it doesn't get the sides or bottom of the bowl mixed well enough. We end up having to scrape and fold everything in by hand which is very time-consuming.
    Thank you for your feedback! We’re sorry the beater stopped working properly for you. For recommendations, please contact our Customer Solutions team.
    I would have given this a 5 star but the bowl had a dent when it was delivered. I did not notice this until I actually used it and cleaned the bowl. Although, it did not take away from what the end results. I did a merengue and it was exceptionally done, it came out like cream. The noise level was very low! I love this machine, it is the perfect size, although it is heavy but it was worth the investment.
    Only reason not a four star rating was that the first one died on a few weeks. Customer service sent a replacement and it had been running nonstop since.
    I order this mixer few days ago and i just got it today. this mixer have lots of power and it works amazing. I am glad that i choose this one.
    We love using this mixer to make all our sauces and mac and cheese. It is a great addition to our kitchen and allows us to concoct great sauces.
    I should have gotten two of these. We had predominantly been using 8 oz. kitchen aids. We have been able to increase our efficiency and spend more time focusing on our business.
    This is a very cheap mixer, I would give it a lesser rating but compared to the price of the competitions, I feel like I should give it an extra star. I would not use this mixer for anything high volume. We use it to mix cookies once a day and also meatloaf and veggie burgers once a week. Anything more then that and I think it would burn up fast.
    Thank you for your feedback! We’re sorry you did not prefer this product. For recommendations, please contact our Customer Solutions team.
    The motor is definitely more powerful than the regular kitchen aid (great for large batches of dough), and it holds more volume, so it's great for larger batches.
    Having a startup cafe, we needed all equipment for our cafe. This worked as expected but it's a little bulky for the bowl qt size. It does move around alot when in use.
    Words can't express how much we love this beater! We are a growing company and make lots of products. This machine is constantly being used and has never given us any difficulty. It's extremely easy to use. Beaters well. Super reliable.
    I purschaded this product when it was in sale and it came with a additional attachament for the sale price when the other one had only 3 attachments for more money. So I got more for my buck
    Overall, this is a great mixer, especially for the price! It is a solid and sturdy mixer that has worked well for our bakery business. It is strong enough to handle bread doughs and has held up to multiple meringue whipping sessions on high many, many times a day. My only complaints would be: The bowl feels thin and flimsy, though we've had no issues with it yet The built on silicone paddle scraper has already torn and become unusable Their are no numbers on the machine for speeds, there are just pictures of a dough hook, whisk, and paddle - but the paddle and whisk picture are very similar looking ...and the biggest issue, you CANNOT remove the safety guard for washing, which makes the machine difficult to fully clean
    This is one huge mixer! I like that it comes with the various attachments - and it's definitely big enough to handle whatever job you have. It comes in a large crate and is very heavy, so pre-plan it's perfect place in your kitchen.
    This mixer has met our expectations so far. It is of great quality. We use it about everyday and it runs perfectly. The accessories are very good as well. We highly recommend it.
    This mixer arrived very quickly. It took only 1-2 days. It arrived in perfect condition. I would recommend webstraunt to anyone in the restraunt business.
    I am happy with my purchase. This unit is a great buy for my small catering business. I am enjoying the fact that I can make larger batches of batter now. It saves me a lot of time and effort
    This heavy duty stand mixer is great for mixing large batches of dough. We use it to make bagels, I especially love the attachment with the silicone edge
