When you own a restaurant, it’s essential to have a mixer in the kitchen. This is especially true if you are doing any baking or mixing large quantities of ingredients. Mixing by hand takes a lot of time and energy that can be focused elsewhere in the kitchen. There are many different sizes and styles of commercial mixers—everything from 20 quarts up to 140 quarts. And Kohn-Megibow Company offers all types of mixers that you can buy used at a fraction of the price that they would cost brand new.
To help you find the perfect mixer that fits your restaurant’s needs, we’ve compiled a list of mixers available at KMC.
Extremely popular in the restaurant and bakery industries, dough mixers are very versatile, durable and easy to use. Usually, the smallest commercial-grade mixers will be 20 quarts, which are considered countertop mixers. They can also be placed on equipment stands depending on what’s best for your kitchen space. They don’t take up much space and will get the job done if you have smaller quantities of mixing that need to be done in a restaurant or small bakery.
Large Dough Mixers
Often referred to as “floor mixers,” these larger dough mixers are best when you have a high volume of mixing that needs to be done. Standard sizes range between 30, 60 and 80 quarts, and really large 140-quart models can also be found. These are ideal for pizzerias, large bakeries and other restaurants where big batches of dough need to be mixed.
Dough Mixer Manufacturers
The best-quality mixers are made by Hobart, which is considered the top-of-the-line mixer manufacturer. They are head and shoulders above anyone else. You can find an old Hobart mixer at KMC and it will run just as well as new. At Kohn-Megibow Company, we are well-known for our refurbished Hobarts. We get them in all the time and make sure they are running great before they are resold. No details are overlooked to ensure quality. They are usually repainted and restored to look like new, as well. Hobart mixers are truly built to last and buying used at Kohn-Megibow Company will save you a lot of money.
Other great dough mixer manufacturers found at KMC include Globe, Berkel, Uniworld, Thunderbird and more.
Vertical Cutter Mixers (VCMs)
These are different than dough mixers because they are able to cut and blend. This allows you to mix a wide variety of ingredients for various recipes. We’re talking sauces, soups, purees, coleslaw, hummus and more.
Many of the same companies manufacture vertical cutter mixers. Again, Hobart is the leader. Other great VCM manufacturers include Stephan and Robot Coupe. The most popular sizes include 20, 40 and 45 quarts, though they are available in a wide variety of sizes.
KMC gets phenomenal deals on all of its used restaurant equipment, especially when it comes to our mixers. Everything is inspected and reconditioned as needed. When you buy from KMC, you know you are getting quality items without having to shell out a ton of money to buy things new.
