Why you shouldn't use a domestic blender in a commercial environment Why you shouldn't use a domestic blender in a commercial environment

Imagine the ability to increase your drinks menu with just one piece of equipment. This is not a magical feat, but one that is wholly achievable with a little help from a blender. For cafes and bistros, this means spicing up your offering with everything from smoothies, to frappes and milkshakes, while for bars it could vastly broaden the scope of cocktails on offer.

While a domestic blender, especially one of the top-of-the-range examples, may seem perfectly capable of handling your kitchen's blending needs, it's important to be aware of the limitations and liabilities of bringing a piece of home equipment into a commercial environment.

In this post we are looking at the best alternative, an entry level commercial blender from Vitamix, and what it can offer your foodservice business.

While kitchen equipment available for the home has become increasingly more sophisticated in recent years, it is still only designed to handle a typical household's use. In the case of a blender, this could equate to a once, or twice-daily usage at most.

Under the strain of repeated daily use, this is where you could see your home blender begin to show signs of wear, and potential break downs. My expereince with equipment breakdowns indicates that they always happen at the most inconvenient time, think Friday afternoon before a busy summer weekend.

I suppose it is like your computer, not a matter of if it will breakdown but when it will breakdown.

About now you begin questioning your original decision to save money, maybe you even start giving yourself a really hard time.

And I guess that is when you will find out the if you have used a domestic blender in a commercial environment then it is not covered under warranty.

So now you are without a blender and without backup support. Could it get any worse?

Probably not, but it doesn't have to be that way!
