Baking in a commercial kitchen means not only baking in bulk, but baking a variety of recipes that require a clean bowl, flat beater or whip. Save yourself the time spent at the sink washing these crucial parts and just pick up a second bowl and another clean beater and be on your way! Browse our selection of KitchenAid mixer parts below.
Why Go KitchenAid Commercial in a Commercial Kitchen
A KitchenAid Commercial mixer, recognizable by its bright orange cord, should be the only type of KitchenAid mixer in your kitchen. KitchenAid Commercial mixers feature a stronger, 1.3 HP motor that won't burn out prematurely; this motor will deliver a consistent stream of power to large loads with less heat build-up. In addition, KitchenAid Commercial mixers are NSF® certified which will earn you some points with the health inspector. We also want to fill you in on this little known fact about using non-commercial grade equipment in a commercial kitchen: should disaster strike and you find your kitchen engulfed in flames, it'll be tough getting any payout from your insurance company because your equipment isn't commercial grade. If you work in a commercial kitchen, all of your equipment should be commercial grade!
When to Use the KitchenAid Flat Beater, Wire Whisk and Dough Hook
More often than not, you'll be relying on your flat edge beater for nearly all of your baking needs. The flat beater is a great all-purpose tool designed for normal to heavy mixtures. Whether you're beating, mixing, creaming or mashing, the commercial flat beater is a trusty standby you'd be hard pressed to bake without. Consider purchasing additional flat beaters for your KitchenAid stand mixer so you can forego washing the beater between recipes and instead, move onto your next task.
The wire whip attachment excels in recipes where you need to incorporate air into the product to increase its volume. Ideal for whipped cream or egg whites (for meringue), the wire whip can help you create a light as air product with very little effort from you. Lastly, the dough hook is your best friend when it comes to mixing heavy bread and pasta doughs. The hook makes the kneading process a snap because it can help you make the dough smooth and elastic in a fraction of the time. Time is everything in a commercial kitchen, and just a few minute can mean the world to a busy baker.
