Planetary mixers have a single motor and a stationary bowl. They come in smallcountertop versions and larger floor-standing models and are among the most popular mixers for commercial kitchens. As the name implies, planetary mixers feature an agitator that moves around the bowl like a planet.
Planetary mixers need the proper attachments and agitators for optimal performance. Whips, beaters, dough hooks, mixing paddles, whisks and pastry knives are common kinds of agitators used for bowl mixing. Slicers, graters, shredders and meat choppers are also common hub attachments for some planetary mixers; these attachments extend the capabilities of the mixer beyond just mixing.
All planetary mixers have one motor and a non-rotating bowl. Planetary mixers are sized by the volume of the ingredients they can hold in their bowls, and their capacities can range from five to 140 quarts, adding to the flexibility these mixers offer.
Smaller planetary mixers can be placed on a countertop, while larger planetary mixers are floor standing. Because of that, planetary mixers are an excellent choice for general purpose kitchens, bakeries and pizzerias. They are currently the most commonly-used commercial mixer on the market.
