    Hobart 20qt Mixer would be the best buy for you. A used one is better than the new legacy mixers they have now. (Too Much Technical crap in new ones) Ovens are we talking convection ovens ? Blodgett DFG1 is the best Convection oven. I alos like the Garland convection ovens too.

    Yeah, a refurbed Hobart would be my first choice as well.   The old ones are built like tanks.

    I can help you with Mixers,I have worked on every one known to man,the cookie dough is very

    sticky and I think the  KA will not hold up,Last time I sold a new Hobart 20 Qt. it was $5K,

    with all the goodies,the Thunderbirds have been holding up fairly well for the Money,Globe

    GP20 is a Great machine the money,[and I'm a Hobart Guy]
