Blenders – What you need to Know

Choosing the appropriate blender for your juice business is very important. A wrong purchase will hamper production and cause you to lose money at some point. In this series of posts, we will be taking a critical look at blenders. Let’s delve into the world of blenders. Let’s go!

A blender is an electronic or manual device or machine used in food preparation for liquidizing, chopping or pureeing. There are two main types of blenders.

  1. Countertop Blender
  2. Immersion or stick Blender

Countertop Blender

This is the traditional countertop blender. The kind we are used to. The countertop blender has a pitcher ( glass or plastic jar) with the spinning blades in the bottom that mounts into a motorized base. The countertop blender is more powerful and has more settings than the immersion blender. These guys can blend, mix, puree, chop and crush ice. For our line of business, we will be focusing on these blenders.

Immersion Blender

The immersion blender is also known as a handheld or a stick blender. These are compact and portable and are mostly used to blend right in the soup pot. The immersion blender is very common among chefs. They use these handheld devices to blend up hot foods, like soup and gravies right in the pan.

Blenders I recommend.

There are a lot of decent blenders on the market. I am not saying get these at all cost but if you can then you definitely should. These blenders will save you a lot of hustle in the future, plus they will pay for themselves, over and over again.

 The Vitamix Blender

The first on my list is the Vitamix. Personally, I think this is the king of blenders. Superior design and very robust and durable. These machines are so good they have been tagged as ‘ high-performance machines’. The Vitamix starts at USD 349. Read more about it here.

 Ninja Blenders
