A commercial blender is one designed for daily use in places like restaurants, bars, and catering businesses. However, many are available that can be used in any home. But read the warranty carefully. Some models claim or are advertised as “commercial” but are not guaranteed if used in a business.
Commercial blenders have powerful motors and large capacity blending containers. Most wanted features are heavy-duty construction, high-speed, and high strength metal components that don’t wear out quickly or break under constant use. Also desirable are pre-programmed blending cycles to ensure product consistency.
Read the features of these commercial quality blenders below to see if they fit your needs.
