Finding the right combination of bakery equipment to outfit your new bakery could seem like a bit of a daunting task. It is important to think about what you wish to produce and how much, as those details will help influence the specific pieces of equipment and get the most bang for your buck. In this piece, we have provided a list of tips and suggestions to help you find the best bakery equipment for all your needs! Read on to learn more!

Dough Preparation

The first step for making bread or any other type of baked good is by preparing the dough. Having the dough appropriately mixed is important for the quality and texture of your finished product. While a small or artisan-style operation might prefer to mix the bread dough by hand on a wood-topped baker table, a lot of commercial bakeries will want one at least, if not multiple dough mixers.


Commercial mixers are available in various sizes, from smaller five qt. countertop models all the way up to 100+ qt. floor units. Many mid to large-size bakeries will have various large floor units and may benefit from a countertop unit’s portable nature, which will lend itself to mixing many small batches of icing or fillings easily and quickly. The most crucial factor you should consider when looking at mixers for your bakery is matching the mixer’s capability to what you want to be able to do with it.

Dough Sheeters and Dividers

Dough dividers are special pieces of commercial bakery equipment that take large batches of dough and portion it out evenly into equally sized and weighted balls of dough for consistent results when making bread, pies, or even pizza crusts. Dough sheeters take balls of dough, roll, and stretch it out to the thickness and size you specified. This will improve consistency within your pie and pizza dough crusts. These are excellent pieces of bakery equipment that all bakeries should have.
