Why would you want a professional blender? Because, of course, such blenders can do practically anything. Maybe you’ve seen the YouTube videos for the Blendtech blender. You know the one: “Will it blend?”
The answer is yes. In fact, they’ll blend anything from iPods to marbles. Now, you may not want to go out and buy an iPod or bag of marbles to blend, but you get the idea. And Blendtech is not the only brand out there that makes a good commercial blender. Other popular brands include Vitamix, Kitchen Aid and Waring-Commercial. Some, though not many, use commercial blenders in their personal kitchens.
The majority of such blenders, however, are sold to restaurants, bars, catering services and hotels. At prices ranging from $300-600, you can safely understand why. Some of them even sell for $1,000. If you’re a novice in the world of blenders, you may want to consider something a little cheaper than these, unless you know you love to blend. In that case, the more expensive machines are definitely worth the money.
You’ll get greater durability, and hey, you’ll get a damn fine smoothie! So, why would you want to shell out so much money on some fancy blender? Durability, for one thing. Each and every commercial blender is heavy-duty, so you’ll have absolutely no trouble crushing ice, for instance.
Plus, the fact of their durability is borne out by the terrific warranties many companies offer. They might cost you a little extra, but on the other hand, you’ll get a five- or ten-year warranty out of the deal just in case something goes wrong.
After all, commercial blender manufacturers usually sell to businesses, so they want to make sure their product is as reliable as it can be. The Vitamix, for example, has a seven-year warranty, which you can extend to ten years if you pay $75 for the privilege. But as we’ve seen, you can’t go wrong with a commercial blender.
So, choose your model, look at the warranty offer very closely, and buy one today! You won’t be sorry you did.
