The 8-quart-capacity bowl on this Globe SP8 planetary mixer is made of durable stainless steel, and the bowl is relatively heavy, especially when filled with ingredients, so a bowl lift is built into the system to reduce operator strain. A polycarbonate splash guard surrounds the top of the bowl, preventing ingredients from spilling out of the sides as the agitator rotates around the bowl. Because an ingredient chute is integrated into the guard, users can add product without stopping operation.
Mounted on the front of this Globe SP8 bench model commercial mixer, a digital touchpad enables users to control the settings. It includes a speed switch with three fixed settings—132, 234, and 421 RPM—and a 15-minute digital timer. The unit's transmission transfers power from the motor to the agitator, and its gear-driven design reduces the need for repairs. Wire whip, flat beater, and dough hook agitators are included to mix different types of products, from cake batters and mashed potatoes to whipped cream and meringues.

"I have a 20 year old Kitchenaid that has never failed. It makes simple breads and one loaf wonderfully. But when I got into making artisian breads, the old Kitchenaid just walked all over the counter and eventually couldn't fulfill the task. So, I bought a 5Qt Kitcheaid and was disappointed when it stripped its gears making 2 loafs of white bread. Returned it and the second one did the same in 2 months of making bread every weekend. So... I expanded my budget, returned the Kitchenaid for a refund, and set out to get something better. I considered the Hobart 5qt but it was too expensive. So, I got the Globe 8QT and it was a good price and a good size for the kitchen. On receiving, my first batch was 3 loafs of white bread that would have killed the kitchenaid... and the Globe 8Qt largely didn't seem to notice. The motor sounded like it didn't even have anything in the bowl and it plowed through the mixing for 12 minutes without any problems. It never even heated up like the kitchenaid did. It's like having a 450 horse power truck driving on a flat road even when towing a 25000 pound trailer. This thing is perfect for my weekend bread making hobby and the price is right to make it affordable."
