Immersion Blender vs Bar Blender vs Food Blender

Every product in your kitchen has a different use, regardless of how similar their actions are. You have a knife that cuts pieces of Filet Mignon, while a different knife is used for slicing and dicing vegetables. Blenders are no different. Some a free standing and blend smoothies, others are perfect for mincing vegetables, while some blenders allow you to mix food and drinks in any pot or mixing bowl.

Immersion Blender One of the easiest and most versatile blenders on the market, an Immersion Blender is a necessity in any commercial kitchen. While other blenders require that you use a specific mixing vessel, you can use any type of bowl, pot, or container with an Immersion Blender. However, one drawback to the Immersion Blender is you have to hold it as you are blending.

Bar BlenderSimply pour your ingredients into the blender carafe and press a button to thoroughly mix, blend or puree your mixture. A Bar Blender is perfect for mixing liquids such as milkshakes and smoothies. Added benefits include, they are a hands-free appliance, offer a high and low power setting, and many also have a pulse feature for crushing ice. A Bar Blender however, will not properly chop food.

Food Blenders Food mixers usually have more features, options and speeds so you can process foods of all sorts of consistencies and varying degrees of being frozen. Food blenders can be used to prepare salsas, combine ingredients for various foods like cakes and specialty sauces.  A drawback is you have to use the blenders carafe, which means having to pour a soup mixture for example into the blender carafe and then returning it to the pot- adding an extra step in your cooking process.

Immersion Blenders and Food and Bar Blenders offer great benefits but each has a drawback that is available in the alternative. In the end, you need to consider the use of your Blender, before making a purchase. If you will be making a lot of mixed drinks, smoothies, and milkshakes, a Bar Blender will better suite your needs. On the other hand, if you plan to use a blender for soups, salsas, marinara sauces an Immersion Blender or Food Blender is the better option.
