Planetary Mixer

Planetary Mixer - Atlas SH101

Taiwanese Flag Graphic

The Atlas SH101 is one of the smaller mixers in the Planetary range, but that doesn't mean to say that it's any less capable. Primarily designed as a cake mixer, its 10 litre bowl capacity means it can be used for combining cookie dough, cake and brownie mixes, as well as small batches of dough. As a result it's ideal for use in cafes, restaurants, confectioners and small-scale artisan bakeries. Able to sit neatly on a counter top the Atlas SH101 offers an excellent space-saving solution for smaller establishments.


The 1/3hp, belt-driven, single phase motor with multiple speed makes light work of a wide range of both creamy and dense mixtures, including flour, salts, yeasts, fats, and liquids. With a dry flour mix capacity of 3kgs the SH101 can handle up to 4.65kgs in dough provided there is a minimum 55% water/liquid content. Supplied with a wide range of accessories including a paddle beater, dough hook, stainless steel bowl, and whisk, this mixer is hard wearing and built to last. With the absence of PC boards or circuits, servicing and maintaining this mixer is an elementary job.

Thoughtfully designed

Everything about the Atlas SH101 has been considered with the end user in mind. For example, the winding handle that raises and lowers the mixing bowl ensures that the mix inside the bowl is always at the correct height to maintain the perfect consistency. The locking handles keep the bowl perfectly stable to maintain safe mixing even at speed, while the safety guard ensures that fingers and loose objects remain clear of the beater. Finally, all attachments are easily removed for cleaning purposes and all it takes to keep the body of the mixer clean is a simple wipe down with a damp cloth.

Overall the Atlas SH101 is a dependable mixer which just keeps going and going. It's functional and versatile and with its deep red colour, it looks the part too. If you're searching for a smaller, well priced commercial mixer that you can rely on, then this is the one for you.

  • Why should I use a Fork Mixer?
  • What is a Double Arm Mixer
  • What is a Planetary Mixer?
  • What is a Spiral Mixer?

The simple answer is, "a fork mixer will not heat up your dough in the mixing process". A fork mixer has a free spinning bowl and a two pronged agitator that can run at both slow, and fast speed. It is gentle on dough as it mixes, but the mix times are longer when compared to a spiral mixer. But because of the gentle action on the dough, this will help you manage the dough temperature, and achieve your goal temperature. This will result in a higher quality dough that is not heated.

The double arm mixer was one of the first electric mixers. It mixes gently and slowly, which essentially copies the motion of hand mixing. Because the agitation is gentle, the resulting dough is very close in characteristics to that of dough produced by hand mixing. Not much time will be saved in production as it is a slow mix..

The planetary mixer is an all-purpose workhorse found in many bakeries. Planetary mixers are classified as cake mixers, and are not suitable for heavy dough development. Spiral, Fork, and Two arm mixers would be better suited if dough is all you need to make.

The spiral mixer is a single purpose mixer used only for bread and pizza dough development. The smaller spiral mixers, single phase, only have one speed. Most 3 phase spiral mixers have 2 speeds, slow and high speed. Spiral mixers are the preferred mixers of the bread bakers, and pizza makers of Europe. Many bakers see the spiral mixer as the choice that allows speed of production while maintaining control of oxidation and good treatment of the dough.
