So should I save money and buy a basic bar blender for 60 bucks knowing I am doing ice drinks and smoothies? Or should I spend a little more and have it last longer?
A basic bar blender is designed for about 1 to 24 drinks a day. If you make a little more than that look into one with a half horsepower motor and is designed to crush ice effectively. With a stronger motor and a blade configured for ice it will do a better job of blending th eproduct.
Need more production? There is a blender that gives you three and a half horsepower at peak operation. These are rated at 75 drinks or more per day. Remember the right equipment for the task at hand.
