3-Speed, Gear-Driven Transmission

Three speeds let you mix anything from whipped cream to dough, and the speeds are labeled to indicate which attachment is best-suited for that setting. The dough hook is best suited for a low RPM of 150, the flat beater for a medium RPM of 271, and the wire whisk for a high RPM of 485. A gear-driven transmission design provides greater reliability over belt-driven mixers.

20 Qt. Bowl

A 20 qt. bowl makes the MX20WFB perfect for mixing batches of your best-selling foods.

#12 Attachment Hub

The hub accepts most standard #12 attachments like meat grinders and food processors, allowing you to increase the versatility of your mixer.

Wire Bowl Guard

A wire guard prevents fingers and objects from becoming caught in the mixer while it is in use, maximizing safety.

Push-Button Controls

Starting and stopping the mixer is easy with a simple on/off switch, making it easy to learn how to use it!

Manual Bowl Lift

A simple wheel-style lift makes it easy to raise and lower the bowl as needed.

Safe Design

For added safety, this mixer will not operate when the bowl guard is opened or when the bowl is lowered.

Attachments Included

This mixer comes with a dough hook, 2 flat beaters, and a wire whip so you can start using it right away. One of the beaters features a silicone scraping blade, which leaves nothing to waste and makes clean up a breeze.

Customer Q&AAsk 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!
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.

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.

You get what you pay for. I wanted to avoid a high price Hobart, and as a startup bakery that doesn't do a ton of heavy duty mixing, we opted for this mixer based on all the good reviews. First, when I received it I noticed how much flimsier both the bowl and paddles are compared to a Hobart. Ok, I figured that's not ideal, but I could live with it. But now, after 10 mos of very light use (< 1 shift/wk in a commissary kitchen), the gear head is leaking oil down into the bowl...just, ewww. I would stay away from this mixer.

This is for very very large kitchen. Not for small or medium size establishments. You will be going too big. This is like for a college or establishment serving 1000 people

Joy N. from LANIERS CATERING on 04/16/2021

Happy with it so far! This is my first piece of really industrial equipment for my soap business (specifically, for making body whip in quantities greater than five pots at a time), and holy smokes! It's a workhorse, I knew it would be, but what surprised me was how *quiet* the motor is, compared to my little KitchenAid. I love that there are only three speeds: whisk, hook, and paddle - no question for what to use and when to use it. I adore all the manual bits and bobs, the hooks to secure the bowl, the wheel to raise and lower the bowl, the lever to adjust settings, and the green for go, red for stop buttons. It gives me an increased sense of being in control of the machine when I have to interface with it. I like the emergency cutoff that seems to be present: if the front Read More

I upgraded my KA three times, and then purchased a Bosch for my cottage bakery. When I opened my commercial space, I bought the MX20 and should have purchased it to begin with. This mixer is a beast. I have no complaints whatsoever. The bowls is a great size. I have used it for cookie doughs, frostings, and bread doughs. It handles them all with ease. I would like to note that I was a little concerned on the weight when I ordered it. Definitely pay for the liftgate service if you do not have a forklift on site. It was heavy, but not too heavy that my Dad and I couldn't lift it to put it on the stand. I purchased the 24" stand, item #600MT2424G, which fits it nicely. It is a solid investment that I have thoroughly enjoyed.

Jana L. from Nanna's Sweets on 02/16/2021

We purchased two of these mixers when building out our second bakery location. I do not recommend purchasing these! Throughout the last year and a half the insides have completely fallen apart, and the mechanism to raise and lower the bowl seems to have finally stripped making it unusable. For the price, I would’ve expected them to last a bit longer. We don’t even use them every day—I would say 2-3 days per week, and not full days of use. We have fixed a few things along the way, needing to open it up and rig something up or find little screws that came out and fell down inside. I’ll try buying some new parts to install and see if we can get them working again—but they’ve been a headache and far too sensitive to be worth it! I wish I would’ve either bought something more reliable or sourced a better quality used mixer. Live and learn! The one plus side is the bowls are lighter than other 20qt mixing bowls I’ve worked with, so they’re easy to lift when full.

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.

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.

Ashley C. from Not As Famous Cookie Company on 01/03/2021

Bought this mixer 5 years ago. It is used weekly to make our sweet roll dough and frosting. Also large batches of cookie dough. Works like a champ every time.

Tom G. from Susan Gudenkauf on 01/02/2021

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.

Darrel S. from South Lake Bistro on 10/01/2020

Just what I expected, great mixer for cookie dough, pizza dough and my sourdough bread, the size is perfect for a limited space, so helpful..!

Daniel V. from Pizza Bar Il Angolo on 08/27/2020

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.

Jesus G. on 05/27/2020

This mixer is ok. Not great. It’s lasted me 1.5 years and has to be replaced. I have purchased a 20 year old refurbished Hobart for the same price and already I’m a million times happier. The last month we’ve been concerned every time I have to mix a dough, and it wouldn’t go past first speed. Save your time, buy a better brand.

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.

Scott G. from Oldfields on 02/12/2020

Has lasted about four years now and still running smoothly, perfect for pancake batter, mixtures, mashed potatoes. It is easy to keep clean and function

Kara P. from Marlboro Diner on 01/09/2020

Great mixer for pie crust! We use the mixer for many things but have found it’s easy for use to make our pie crust in this mixer. It does a great job mixing heavy butter and flour.

Avantco MX20 20 Qt. Gear Driven Commercial Planetary Stand Mixer with Guard - 110V, 1 hp is a solid machine and we are happy to have it.

Distribution W. on 11/30/2019

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.

Samantha B. from Samantha's Sweets on 11/25/2019

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.

This is a good value buy mixer. It works great for cake batters, buttercream, brownies, etc. My only wish is that the guard wasn't there, as it makes streaming liquids / eggs / etc. in very difficult. Also, the back guard is pretty sharp at the edges, so it makes scraping the sides of the bowl down hard when you keep bumping it.
