Blenders are extremely convenient to have in your restaurant, and they are very effective at performing specific functions. They are easy to operate, simple to maintain and they generally won’t take up much space. If you own a bar or restaurant, however, you will want to seek out commercial-grade blenders that can handle the quantities and specific ingredients you need for your menu.
Kohn-Megibow Company is your Orange County source for commercial blenders. We have many new models for sale, and we often get used blenders in stock that are in excellent working condition. These can be purchased at discounted rates from our warehouse, or you may get an even better deal by buying your blender from one of KMC’s bi-weekly used restaurant equipment auctions.
Here are a few types of blenders to look into for your restaurant:
1. Bar Blenders
Bar blenders are meant for whipping up on-the-spot drinks. Whether you’re serving blended daiquiris or strawberry smoothies, then a standard bar blender will definitely be a must-have for your restaurant.
2. Food Blenders
While bar blenders are somewhat limited in function, food blenders are going to offer you much more versatility. If you are creating in-house dressings, sauces, purees, soups and so forth, you may want a food blender that can handle different ingredients and will be able to perform a wider variety of food preparation tasks.
3. Immersion Blenders
Otherwise known as “stick” mixers, immersion blenders are hand-held devices that you can put directly into a glass, bowl or soup pot to emulsify liquids and other ingredients. They are great if you are making soups or sauces that require some time to smooth out.
Once you’ve chosen a blender, you will want to consider other factors such as materials used for the blade and the container (generally stainless steel, plastic or glass), the size of the container, the different blending features available and the power of the blender. These factors are all important in achieving the blending results you desire.
