Blender Comparison

A commercial blender is very important for most restaurant bars and sometimes even as kitchen equipment. The right blender for a venue will depend on the amount it relies on its commercial blender, as well as its budget and ambience. Ice cream shops, for example, tend to sell a lot of milkshakes, making it important for them to have high power, heavy duty blenders. Since ice cream shops usually offer quick service and are expected to have high traffic and noise, the noise of the commercial blender will not be a relevant factor in choosing the right blender. Sophisticated bars, on the other hand, will need a heavy duty blender for smoothies, margaritas, and other frozen drinks, but noise will have a negative impact on the ambience in the venue, making a low noise commercial blender necessary. Luckily for venues, there are blenders on the market to match every need, providing solutions for the restaurant kitchen and front-of-the-house service.

Comments This heavy-duty blender may be the best choice for producing smoothies, margaritas, and milk shakes. A restaurant kitchen that relies on a commercial blender to blend sauces and soups can also benefit from this high-powered blender. The only drawback may be the stainless steel container, as the contents of the blender are not visible, therefore cooks and bartenders will have difficulty ensuring that the product has reached target consistency. In high class venues, a commercial blender needs to be more than just strong. It must also be quiet, so as not to disturb the ambience of the venue. This blender is a great option for front-of-the-house restaurant appliances in venues looking to minimize noise from food preparation. This blender has a large capacity and is  very affordable compared to some of the other options presented in this blender comparison. However, it has less power and a shorter warranty than the other models. In terms of blender comparison, this blender scores high in terms of power for your dollar.  With a powerful 1450 watt motor and stainless steel impact resistant blades, this blender is perfect for making smoothies, cocktails and dressings. This blender a great option for restaurant kitchens with medium to low blender use.
