The Hobart N50 5 Quart: Big Results for Big Expectations

Hobart N50 Commercial Mixer Review |

Are looking for you’re grandma’s old KitchenAid or Sunbeam mixer? That heavy duty brute that couldn’t be broken. They just don’t make them like that anymore – unless you go back to the original. The first owner of the name “KitchenAid.” Hobart. It’s the same multi-generational appliance that your mom (and possible you) grew up with. Only now, it’s called “commercial” (with a price tag to match).

Driven by a robust, powerful motor it handles large, double-batch capacities, and the stiffest and heaviest of dough. Backed by the manufacturer’s excellent warranty, this made in the USA model is definitely one to consider if you do a lot of baking.

An Occasional Baker? Try the Low Priced Sunbeam MixMaster 2594

Sunbeam MixMaster 2594 Stand Mixer Review |

Another well-known kitchen classic that many of us grew up with, the MixMaster was introduced to North American households in 1930 and became Sunbeam’s signature product. With the design and rotating beaters similar to that of a handheld model, the MixMaster makes an easy transition from handheld to stand style.

Power Up Your Baking With The Ankarsrum Original

Ankarsrum Original Review |

Are you looking for a machine that kneads bread dough as well as the old Hobart-built KitchenAids or those heavy duty Sunbeams that your mom or grandmother had when you were growing up that would tackle anything? Get a model that hasn’t “changed with the times.” The Ankarsrum Original is Foodal’s Top Rated Stand Mixer and can power through the thickest dough day after day and year after year. Some folks have reported heavy use of their machine over the course of over thirty years.

Although this device has had an identity crisis (at various times being known as the Electrolux Assistent, Magic Mill DLX, and Verona), the guts still remain purely Swedish. A pure powerhouse and our #1 pick for those that work with heavy dough.
