A staple in every commercial restaurant kitchen, mixing bowls are key to quick, efficient meal prep.

When shopping for commercial mixing bowls, consider the size of the batch and what type of food you will be mixing. Stainless steel mixing bowls are sturdy and perfect for mixing heavy doughs, while glass allows you to easily see how well everything combines. Melamine mixing bowls and aluminum mixing bowls are also common materials used.

What Do I Need to Know About Commercial Mixing Bowls?

Which material should I choose?

Stainless steel mixing bowls are a popular choice for high-volume restaurant use. A large stainless steel bowl costs more than plastic or aluminum alternatives. That said, they will stand up to long-term use, making the investment worth it. Stainless steel also resists corrosion well, meaning you won't need to replace them due to rust,  which you might see with other materials.

Aluminum mixing bowls, on the other hand, are the second most common metal option. They are also lighter than stainless steel. Typically, aluminum mixing bowls are much cheaper than steel mixing bowls, although they are not as sturdy as stainless steel and more likely to warp, dent, or get scratched. Aluminum also corrodes with acidic foods, like tomatoes. If you will be working with a lot of highly acidic ingredients, we’d recommend using something other than aluminum.

Melamine mixing bowls are made from a more durable type of plastic, which has become very popular as restaurant servingware, since it's durable and inexpensive. Melamine mixing bowls also come in a variety of colors, which makes them attractive even though they are a low-cost option. Melamine has some drawbacks, though: It’s not as sturdy as aluminum or stainless steel options and can't be used in cooking since they typically have a max temperature of around 212 degrees Fahrenheit. Like other options, melamine is dishwasher safe, and also easy to keep sanitized.

Lastly, glass mixing bowls help you to see if ingredients are mixed properly from top to bottom. The transparency of glass mixing bowls allows you to monitor the mixing, whereas other materials inhibit this ability. Glass is unfortunately not as durable as metal, but modern glass can still be made impact, chip, and shock-resistant and is typically dishwasher safe.
