Top Considerations for Choosing a Commercial Blender

A commercial blender is one of the most important tools within any bartender’s arsenal.  So many delicious libations require this device. If you’re looking to buy a blender, you’ll need one that can handle the task.  Let’s take a closer look at the factors which need to be taken into consideration when purchasing a commercial blender.

The Material of the Container

There are three primary materials for blender containers: stainless steel, plastic, and glass.

Plastic:

Lightweight and easy to clean, the plastic container works for busy bar situations.  The plastic container can handle the heavy duty blending, but isn’t as durable as the stainless steel or glass container.

Glass:

The thicker material can withstand a lot of drinks and abuse.  It doesn’t get stained or scratched like a plastic blender container can. It also doesn’t absorb odors and tastes, and some customers prefer glass. Glass containers are much heavier than plastic ones, which can be a drawback to the bartending staff.

Stainless Steel:

Stainless steel cup blending is popular for those who want to have something incredibly durable for their bars. It doesn’t allow the bartender or the customers to see what’s happening inside the mixer.

How much Will the Commercial Blender Hold?

Capacity is of the utmost importance to a bar.  It becomes unwieldy if you’re only able to make one drink at a time in a too-small blender. It’s always better to have too much blender than too little. Your business can grow into your blender. The faster that your bartender is able to do things, the more money your bar will make.  Knocking out two drinks instead of one in the same amount of time means higher profits for your bar.

Which Options does your Blender have?

This, admittedly, is my favorite part.  I love to see the different options for a blender in motion.  If your bartender can press a few buttons and then walk away knowing that the commercial blender will stop at the right time, that adds to the productivity and efficiency of your bar.

What about Power?

When you’re looking for a commercial blender, get a little more firepower than you actually need at the moment.  You can keep your blender longer, as you won’t immediately outgrow it, and you won’t have to worry about burning your blender out under heavy use.
