Immersion blenders are different from your typical blenders, as they can be submerged into ingredients to blend them directly. This means that using a commercial immersion blender, you can blend large batches of food or liquid without moving them to a different container. In this sense, immersion blenders can greatly speed up production in your commercial kitchen.
If you are cooking in a pot, you can simply take your immersion blender and dip it into the pot then switch it on to blend up whatever is in the pot. With a traditional blender, you would have to move the food from the pot, into the mixer, then back to the pot again. Therefore, an immersion blender is a time saving tool. Immersion blenders also allow you to blend high volumes of food, as you can submerge them into any size of container.
Variable speed professional immersion blenders allow the user to precisely control the consistency of the food they are blending. This is highly useful when cooking foams or different sauces. The true value of immersion blenders lies in how versatile they are. The interchangeable shafts allow you to change how you blend, letting you customize each and every meal. As they are handheld blenders, they are also more mobile than a countertop blender.
Light-duty immersion blenders will typically have a shorter shaft and less powerful motor, making them ideal for low volume mixing. Medium-duty emulsion blenders can be used to blend heavier foods, such as whipped cream or guacamole. When you are mixing more than ten gallons of food, a heavy duty commercial immersion blender is your best bet. The Waring Big Stix® Commercial Immersion Blender, for example, can blend fifty pounds of mashed potatoes in a single minute.
