It seems that Hobart is the most popular dough mixer brand. Why is that? Are there other brands out there of similar quality?

Hobart is indeed the most popular brand due to its rugged construction and strong motors. (we have many customers using Hobart mixers for more than 30 years…)
 
Here are some options for you: purchase a brand new Hobart, and we can have this financed for you, we sell used/refurbished Hobart mixers for a fraction of the cost, or you can go with a globe or Vollrath mixer which are also very dependable and less expensive.

Hobart used to be the best  built mixer on the market. Their competitors have stepped up and compete very well with them. They are a great mixer and have a broad size offering,  as do their competitors.

Hobart mixers have a long term reputation for excellence. Bakeries and pizza restaurants put a heavy burden on mixers and the Hobart always hold up the longest. In fact, the biggest competitor they have are used Hobart mixers.  Many companies make good quality mixers and if your usage is moderate, they will all perform well. However, if you believe your operation is high volume and you plan to be around for many years, it is hard to beat Hobart for performance and durability. They also hold their value over that time.

While Hobart IS the most widely known and sought after mixer on the market, there are many manufacturers that make good quality mixers that don't come with a Hobart price tag, like Bizerba, Vollrath, General, and many more. Message us on Kinnek today for a quote, and we'll be happy to show you a number of different options.

I just got back from IBIE (baking expo) in Las Vegas, and I saw dozens of brands of mixers. Most are pretty much identical, so it comes down to features and cost.

One source I like is American Baking Systems. ( http://www.abs1.net/indexA.asp ) I've seen their equipment in use at major educational programs and competitions over the past decade and have been impressed with the build quality and prices.
