We all know what a blender is and how handy they can be. Industrial blenders are usually of a more powerful breed with greater speed and capacity.
When trying to choose a blender the first thing you need to really think about is what is the main use of this blender going to be is it going to be used to chop things or smooth things. You need to take into consideration it’s main purpose. You can make sauces with a blender but you can also grind. So depending on ingredients and the end result you are looking for you should pick one that suites use.
You also need to think about how often you are going to use this blender. Is this a daily use item, if so you might want to spend extra to make sure it holds up?
The blades and motor assembly are very important as well as power and speed. You need to really keep an eye on these when purchasing a blender.
Another thing to keep in consideration is size. Will it fit in the space you have available for it? Large capacity is always a plus.
From my research most high capacity blenders hold about 64 oz and most have at least a 2-3 horsepower motor. Using these as measuring sticks should help in seeing past the bells and whistles in the product. You will also note that a BPA picture is industrial standard. Most blenders also seem to come with recipies and cookbooks. Another industry standard is stainless steel blades.
So what makes a good blender?
- Does it do what you want for a price within your budget
- Does it fit how often you plan on using it
- Does it have the power needed for the job
- Does it have the capacity needed
- Will this blender hold up
