3 Tips for Choosing the Best Blender for Your Bar

Is your bar service slow? Is your bartender doling out drinks one at a time? Or maybe you need a new blender.

One of the most important pieces of bar equipment you’ll ever have to decide on is the bar blender. It can be quite frustrating to scour through seemingly endless lists of bar equipment for sale, but putting in the necessary time and effort will help net you the best bar blender for your restaurant. Here are some insights to help you out:

  1. Capacity. How much can the blender handle? How many people do you need to serve? You’ve got to make sure the blender cup as well as the jar will hold. If blended cocktails are quite a popular feature in your restaurant and your bartenders usually handle multiple orders at once, a bigger blender is in order. Remember that you can’t fill the blender to the brim though, so keep that in mind when you shop for one. You always keep it no more than three quarters full. To go beyond that would risk splashing the liquid around. Considering how much some of the blended cocktails cost, you really want to avoid even wasting a drop.

  2. Material. When you scour through online inventories of featuring bar equipment for sale, make sure to pick a blender with the right container material. Some come with a stainless steel blender—which is the most durable of all types. If you want something more splashy and sophisticated, this one fits that look to a tee. However, keep your bar conditions in mind as well. Do a lot of your guests like to sit down at the bar? Then getting a blender with a glass or plastic container might be better since these are great for showing off the drinks and cocktails being blended.

  3. Blender base. You get 3 choices to pick from: chrome, stainless and plastic. Chrome looks excellent but requires a bit more work in terms of keeping the chrome shiny and polished. A stainless base, though, would work better if you want something attractive and durable. The downside? Stainless steel rusts over time, so if you get scratches or clean it with bleach, it’ll start to go from there. A plastic base is easy to clean and durable, but it looks a lot less professional than the other two.

Hopefully, these 3 tips will help you find the best bar equipment for sale that will work for you. With the right blender, your bartender will start churning out those signature cocktails in no time!
