Commercial vs Residential Immersion Blenders

Would you buy a residential oven for a Pizzeria? Of course not and you shouldn’t buy residential kitchen supplies for a commercial kitchen either. This includes Immersion Blenders. Equipment, appliances and supplies are essential for the optimal performance of your restaurant and when a product stops working, the whole kitchen is effected. Purchasing supplies intended for residential use will cause those products to malfunction under heavy use causing problems for your kitchen.

Residential Immersion Blenders are designed to blend, whisk, and chop small batches of food. Mixing large batches often required in a commercial kitchen with a residential Immersion Blender will cause the motor to blow and void your warranty. Manufacturer Warranties do not cover misuse or abuse of their products. If you are using a residential Immersion Blender in your restaurant kitchen and it breaks your warranty will be voided as the appliance was not intended for commercial use.

If you are unsure whether a  product is certified for commercial or residential use, look for the NSF foundation’s logo, which is present on each piece of equipment in a commercial kitchen.

Buying Guide: How to Select an Immersion Blender

Shaft Size… The type of Immersion Blender you will need depends on how you will be using it. Since shaft sizes range from 7″ to 21″, and capacities range from 3 to 50 gallons you’ll definitely the right product to fit your needs. So how do you determine what you need? This depends on the size and quantity of what your mixing and the container or pot that you will be using for mixing.

Waring 21″ Big Stik Immersion Blender Shaft

Let’s say you plan on making Cheddar Broccoli Soup with an Immersion Blender and you will make 5 Gallons of soup each time you prepare it. Using a 24 Qt Aluminum Stock Pot that is approximately 12″ tall, you would need a Waring 12″ Immersion Blender for precise blending. However, we recommend that you select an Immersion Blender with a shaft 4-6″ longer than your pot because as your business grows you will be making more soup in larger batches. This will require a longer shaft Immersion Blender. Keeping this advice in mind, we recommend that you use a Robot Coupe 16″ Immersion Blender. With that said, as the size of the shaft increases so does the price of the Immersion Blender so take this into consideration as well.

Power…. You also want to consider the amount of power that the Immersion Blender will need to properly blend the mixture. If you will be using the chopping attachment, it wil be necessary to have a higher power Immersion Blender to ensure a thorough chopping. Immersion Blenders with a 600 or more wattage, are ideal for heavy use in restaurants, while a 200 watt product will suffice for blending small batches of smoothies and sauces.

Material…..Plastic Immersion Blenders will stain especially when used to mix tomato-based

mixtures. A stainless steel material, while more expensive, will easily clean and some are dishwasher safe.

Warranty…. Does the Immersion Blender offer a good consumer-friendly warranty? Hassle-Free Warranties are highly desired by consumers because the warranty claim process is ideal when you use the product regularly and cannot wait to have it serviced. Keep in mind that no warranty will cover misuse and abuse so make sure to read and follow the Instruction Manual provided with the product. Read Yesterday’s Blog for more information.


How to Properly Use an Immersion Blender

An Immersion Blender is definitely not hard to use. With that said, we’ve dealt with our fair share of Immersion Blender malfunctions that could have been easily avoided.  Immersion blenders are priceless pieces in a kitchen and it is worth while investing in a good unit that with proper usage, will last.

  • The most common problem we see is people who use a “butter churning” method (up and down) when using an immersion blender which actually ruins the motor and significantly reduces the RPM.
  • The immersion blenders need to be put in the pot or mixing bowl at a 45 degree angle not straight down. The reason for this is that the blades act by pushing air into the product and rotating it through the blades which emulsifies the product.
  • The “Butter Churning Method” will make even the most prestigious Immersion Blender fail within the first 20 seconds of use because it is unable to acquire enough air to push through the blades causing damage to the motor. You will only get up to a 6 month use of the Immersion Blender using the “Butter Churning Method,” where as you will get a couple years of use out of it when using it properly.
  • One last but important tip is to allow the mixture you are blending to cool slightly depending on the material of the shaft.
