Brands of Commercial Mixers (40-80qt -- probably 60)
« on: August 13, 2005, 07:55:20 PM »
I've only used Hobart 20 qt and Berkel VCM 40s.  I want the quality of the Hobart, but not the price.  Also, their 60 qt has a 2hp motor, and others seem to have 3-4 hp motors.  I believe someone on here mentioned that Hobart's 60 qt was kinda weak.

What are some good brands to look for?  I keep reading about spiral and fork (I assume the spiral is the one where the bowl spins), but can those really make a good stiff pizza dough?

Oh, and does a 3-phase mixer work any stronger than a single-phase?  I'd prefer to stay single-phase.  I know they make converters to allow 3-phase off single-phase but last I'd heard, they don't work so well.  Does anyone have experience with this?
