What to look for when purchasing a commercial-grade countertop blender

Whether you are bartending or making soup, you need a blender that’s consistent, durable, and maintains its quality after extended use. 

Commercial blenders are designed to be used in high-volume restaurants and service kitchens and are reliable blenders that are suitable for consistent usage. When shopping for the right high-powered tool that gets the job done, you’ll want to consider these things:  Easy to clean and dishwasher safe, non-skid feet, BPA free, toggle versus variable speed, the amount of counter space you have, the noise level, its performance and consistency, and the warranty information. 

That may seem like a lot to consider, but probably most importantly is how it performs and if it’s consistent. A consistent blender is a valuable one. If you are creating a smooth soup, you don’t want it coming out like a thick and chunky salsa.

Your blender’s cutting speed is measured in RPM (rotations per minute). The higher the RPM, the faster your blender is at mixing and blending your food. Horsepower plays a part in your motor’s cutting speed as higher the horsepower, the more useful your blender will be at chopping up food or ice. The higher the wattage, the more power your blender uses during its operation and the more consistent it will be.

Easy cleaning makes everyone’s job a little easier. Bartenders and chefs are in constant use of blenders for various concoctions. The easier it is to clean, the faster they can prepare an order. Dishwasher-safe makes it easy to sanitize. 


Not all blenders are created equal when it comes to the noise they create. You don’t want a five-star restaurant to sound like a construction worksite. Many blenders list on their spec sheets the range of decibels. 

Commercial blenders are built to last and perform to impress and enhance the overall foodservice experience.
