    Hello there. This is my first post here, although I have read through some of the topics in the past and found this site to be pretty helpful.

    I work in a facility that is about to start making retail baked goods. The first product we are making is a basic peanut butter cookie, and the next product will be brownies.

    I need to get a commercial mixer for us to use in our production processes. The cookie dough is pretty thick, and we mix it up in batches of ~15 quarts of dough. I was thinking about getting a 20qt mixer, but looking online at my options, there are many kinds, and I was hoping someone here might be able to give me some direction as to what kind of mixer is good for what.

    Affordability is key, but I want to make sure I choose a piece of equipment that will last, and actually perform as we need it to.

    Recap:

    Need recommendations for an affordable commercial mixer that will hold up when making large batches of cookies several times a week. Each batch is roughly 15qts of thick dough.

    If any additional advice is needed, please let me know.

    Thanks!

    EDIT: This is what I'm looking at now, but it's so much cheaper than everything else that I worry about it's quality/intended purpose.
