Exclusive Combination
of Technologies
Bake magazine reached out to Carolyn Bilger, marketing director,
Hobart - Food Preparation Products, to examine what key
technological advances are available today in Hobart mixers.
Hobart Legacy+ planetary mixers feature the Hobart PLUS
System, an exclusive combination of technologies including VFDadvantage
variable frequency drive, maximum-capacity overheat
protection, and reinforced planetary shaft system.
The exclusive PLUS System provides Hobart Legacy+ planetary
mixers with up to 30% more mixing capacity in the samesized
bowl, making them the industry's only maximum heavyduty
mixers.
What benefits do bakers gain from these advancements?
In addition to offering up to 30% more capacity, the PLUS system
provides several advantages.
The exclusive variable frequency drive delivers precision speed
control and exceptional power to develop the best doughs. VFDadvantage
system provides a Soft Start feature to minimize
ingredient splash out and ultra-low Stir Speed for thorough incorporation
of ingredients. It also provides Shift-on-the-Fly™
technology, allowing the operator to make convenient speed
changes without stopping the machine.
Maximum-capacity overheat protection lets users handle the
heaviest jobs with more confidence, ensuring more production
and less downtime.
Reinforced planetary shaft system drives maximum power
into the bowl. Users get more of the robust construction expected
from Hobart: an optimized shaft geometry and all-geardriven
transmission leverage the motor's precision tuning and
high-capacity dough output.
What are basic minimum requirements for every baker in their
mixer - down to the smallest operation?
There are three things to consider when choosing a mixer: capacity,
absorption ratio and application.
When it comes to mixer capacity there are two key issues involved:
the volume of ingredients the bowl will hold and the motor
power. Bowl volume is an important consideration for mixing

whipped toppings, icings
or mashed potatoes
- recipes with ingredients
that can easily be filled to the
top of the bowl without overtaxing
the motor. Overfilling the
bowl to the point where
ingredients are above
the edge of the beater
results in ingredients
not being thoroughly
mixed. This impacts
the consistency and quality of
the finished product.
It is also important to know your absorption ratio because the
recommended maximum capacity of the mixer depends on the
moisture content of the dough and the overall batch weight. The
absorption ratio percentage is determined by taking the water
(wet ingredients) weight divided by the flour (dry ingredients)
weight. Many manufacturers offer capacity charts using absorption
ratios to identify the best size mixer for an operation. Hobart
offers a calculator on their website that can help the user
determine the best machine for their recipe and application.
What are recommended best practices?
The mixer should be cleaned at intervals as recommended by
state or national agencies, as well as when switching between
products being mixed. Stainless steel mixing bowls can be
washed in a commercial dish machine or three-compartment
sink. Aluminum agitators should be washed in a three-compartment
sink, and the mixer surface should be washed with a
clean damp cloth. Legacy+ mixers have a bowl guard that can
be removed without tools and washed in a dish machine or three
compartment sink.
