Hobart Mixers Set the Standard
Hobart has crafted high-quality commercial mixers for generations, with models from decades past still operating in foodservice kitchens across the country. They have become so ubiquitous that "the Hobart" has become synonymous with any mixer in countless operations. Whether you need a countertop Hobart stand mixer or process enough heavy mixtures that you need a hulking, floor-model Hobart dough mixer, you can find the model you need from KaTom.
The two primary considerations when choosing among Hobart mixers are what you need to mix and how much of it will be in a typical batch. Capacities range from 5 quarts to 350 pounds, with the smallest of those in the class of planetary mixers and the largest known as spiral mixers. Planetary mixers, so named because their agitators rotate inside the mixing bowl as the earth orbits the sun, are best for lighter mixtures like batters. Spiral mixers are well-suited to handle heavy doughs for bread and, like the specialized Hobart HL662, pizza crusts.
Hobart mixers offer some industry-leading features, including Shift-on-the-Fly™ speed adjustments, timers that help reduce labor demand, and bowl lifts that make handling heavy mixtures easier. Selected models from each series are rigorously tested in the Hobart Technology Center to ensure they can withstand years of demanding use in commercial operations.
