Why do you need a commercial mixer?

Kitchen mixers are perfect for a wide range of food and catering businesses, from pizzerias to bakeries to cafes to hospital kitchens. If you're making food in commercial quantities, you need equipment that can handle heavy use, with perfect results every time.

Commercial mixers are large scale versions of food mixers, which can be used to create large volumes of batter, dough and other food items. With powerful motors and specialised design, commercial mixers make sure that your ingredients are perfectly mixed, aerated and kneaded, without the hassle.

Types of Mixers

Planetary Mixers

Planetary mixers are a huge time saver for busy kitchens, replacing manual beating and mixing with an efficient and effective solution. The mechanism of a planetary mixer is designed to mix and work the whole bowl, with no leftovers, making them a popular choice for commercial food businesses. Whether you are making pizza dough, meringues or sauces, a planetary mixer ensures even mixing and reliable performance, with minimal wastage.

Dynamic Mixers

Dynamic mixers are large and powerful mixers which go up to 400 litres in capacity. Heavy-duty mixers like these are perfect for commercial caterers producing vast quantities and make the food preparation process easy and efficient. With speeds of up to 4000 RPM, dynamic mixers are ideal for high volume, quick mixing.

Large Mixers

For larger kitchens, it is essential to have heavy-duty food mixers that can handle large quantities and frequent use. At Restaurant Supply Store we have mixers that go up to huge capacities, like 400 litres. When looking for industrial food mixers, it is essential to look at the power, convenience and performance of your mixer. Features like electronic control panels are also incredibly useful for busy kitchens producing food in large quantities.

Stand Mixers

Stand mixers have a motorised base with a head that holds attachments and a lock for the bowl. With a chunky base, you must have space for your stand mixer on the countertop too. With beautiful design and functionality, stand mixers like Kitchenaid mixers are great for areas that the public can see. With a head that lifts and a variety of attachments available, a stand mixer is perfect for precision mixing.

Dough Mixers

These clever food mixers are specially designed for making the perfect dough every time. Also known as commercial spiral mixers, they are essential for any kitchen where dough is regularly made. Ideal for patisseries, bakeries, hotel kitchens and pizzerias, a specialised dough mixer can save hours of time and with consistent results every time. With a bowl that revolves around a stationary spiral-shaped agitator, spiral mixers are perfect for kneading large quantities of dough and mixing ingredients. The rotation of the bowl means that the mixing is gentler. This mechanism stops the dough from being overworked and allows the mixture to develop the right gluten structure, which is so essential. Most dough mixers come with a dough hook or a mixing fork.

Features of Kitchen Mixers

Modern commercial mixers come with a range of different features that make the mixing process quick, accurate and safe. As any chef knows, it is useful when commercial mixers come with a variety of different speeds. Dependant on what you use your mixer for, you can find models with up to ten speeds, as well as digital and manual controls. Another handy feature to look out for is a pouring chute which allows you to add ingredients while the mixer is on safely. Look for commercial mixers with a good warranty, so that you know you are covered if there are any issues. Look for high-quality materials like stainless steel, which can cope with heavy use. You can also find kitchen mixers with timers that can be set to stop the mixer after a certain amount of time automatically. This feature is perfect for busy kitchens, where precise timing is key.

Health and safety

Another thing to look out for when you are purchasing food mixers is that it is designed with kitchen health and safety in mind. With food hygiene such a high priority in kitchens, it is important that you find a mixer that is quick and easy to clean. Look for safety features like a safety shut off, guards or a removable BPA-free safety screen to ensure that you and your staff are safe using the machine at all times.

Accessories for Kitchen Mixers

Many kitchen mixers come with accessories and attachments that can expand what the mixer is used for. If you are looking for a more versatile machine, Restaurant Supply Store has a range of mixers that can be upgraded to perform different functions. From pasta making to mincing to juicing to slicing, a vast range of food preparation tasks can be made quick and easy with mixer accessories. We also stock mixers which have bowl reduction kits allowing you to use your large mixer for smaller batches.
