Commercial blenders have been central to speeding up productivity in commercial kitchens for almost a century. There is a wide variety of different commercial blenders on the market, with different specifications fit for restaurants and other foodservice operations. Using a commercial bar blender or food blender is easy, but selecting the right one for your establishment may not be as simple. Some important things to consider when you are choosing your next blender are jar type, horsepower, capacity and noise level.
To most, the horsepower of a blender is a highly important rating. This specification determines how fast the motor spins the blades and the force that the motor is able to generate. The more efficiently the motor operates, the better you will be able to blend different foods. If you need to create a smooth, highly blended finished product, you are likely in the market for a high horsepower unit. These higher power units are able to tear through thicker, larger ingredients with more ease.
The best commercial blender for your business can be determined by considering how often and for what items you will be using the blender. A lightweight machine is best used for about fifty servings per day, while heavy duty use cases will allow about 100 servings a day.
A restaurant blender capacity of around 48 ounces is enough for you to occasionally mix a smoothie or make soup, while a heavy duty commercial blender will allow you to make higher volumes of blended foods and drinks. Heavy duty blenders are available in many different materials, including stainless steel, polycarbonate, glass, and copolyester. Each material has benefits, so you will need to make your choice based on your business’s exact needs.
