This 20-Qt. industrial planetary mixer offers tremendous value and versatility. A bench model, it’s designed to sit on an equipment stand. It features a 1/2 hp motor, and 3-speed belt drive that will offer years of trouble-free service mixing dough, beating batter, whipping cream or mashing potatoes.
The 40757 planetary stand mixer has a safety cutoff switch temporarily that interrupts power if gears are changed without stopping the mixer. Controls include a power switch, 3-speed lever, stop button, and a 30-minute timer with digital display that stops the mixer when the timer ends.
When it comes to understanding a planetary mixer vs stand mixer, a stand mixer is one that rests on its own stand, as opposed to being a hand-held mixer. A planetary mixer has a dual motion that mimics Earth’s—the mixing accessory spins, or rotates, and “orbits” the mixing bowl at the same time. The result is more thorough and consistent mixing of ingredients.
This bench model stand mixer comes with a dough hook, flat beater, stainless steel wire whisk, mixing bowl and safety guard. It has a Number 12 hub that accommodates optional Vollrath accessories such as a meat grinder or vegetable slicer.
