Mixer Bowl Capacity

Mixer Bowl Capacity. The maximum dough weight which the bowl can accommodate at a time. In horizontal mixers this is generally indicated by a numerical designation of the mixer, such as a No. 8, a No. 10, or a No. 20, for capacities of 800, 1,000, 2,000 pounds of dough, respectively. Capacities of vertical mixer bowls are generally expressed in quarts or liters, or, when used for mixing dough, in pounds of maximum dough weight.
