Yesterday DH and I were browsing in a restaurant supply store, and I saw a Hobart stand mixer that was clearly marked as 8 qt, for $1085. When we got home I did a search to compare prices, and have been unable to find any reference to Hobart even making an 8 qt stand mixer.

It was definetly larger than a 5 qt, but didn't look big enough to be a 12 qt...and I can't find info on anything by Hobart that's in-between. Can anyone offer any insight??

Maybe it was a 10 qt?

One of these days I'm gonna have to look into a Hobart...my KA's are in the shop, one of them for the second time in 6 years...this has gotta stop.

Here's an 8qt commercial mixer I found online that is almost exactly the same price. Was this it? If so, it's not a Hobart.


HEre's another 8qt that is about 1/2 the price: http://www.selectappliance.com/exec/ce-product/aj_ax-m8

Indy do you know anything about the Axis brand? I saved it for future reference...counting the money I've spent buying my mixers and now all the repairs, I may as well have bought commercial....

We used to have a Hobart 10 qt at the bakery where I worked. Maybe it was a 12 qt, but I really think a 10 . . .
