A planetary mixer is often called a vertical mixer because the mixing attachment comes straight down into the bowl and it rotates on a vertical axis. The planetary term describes the "dual" rotation of the mixing action where the agitator rotates on its shaft while the whole shaft makes a circular motion around the mixing bowl. These are the most versatile type of mixers because they usually have interchangeable agitators to suit different products - e.g. dough hook for yeast raised dough's, flat beaters for batters and wire whip for whipped cream or some cake batters.
