5 Best Commercial Stick Blenders 2020

Check out 5 of the best commercial stick blenders for sauces, soups, smoothies and more


Hand stick blenders, also known as immersion blenders are a popular piece of kitchen equipment used to blend soups, sauces smoothies and other types of soft foods.


However for light use in a commercial kitchen or food truck you will need a stick/ immersion blender that is a little more robust and up to the job of preparing larger volumes of food.


So to help you chose the right one for your needs I have put together a list of the 5 best commercial stick blenders in 2020, based on blend capacity and blend stick length.


Buyers guide: How to choose a commercial immersion blender


Blend capacity


For blending large volumes of sauces or soups in a light commercial operation you need a commercial stick blender with a minimum capacity of 700ml.


Preferable its recommended to go for one that is around 5 litres so you can expand capacity where you need to.


Stick length


Look for a commercial immersion blender with a long enough blend stick, preferably 16cm and over.


This will make it more versatile in the number of different bowls you can use in terms of depth.


1. KitchenAid Classic Hand Blender

(Best Value)



Key features:

  • Blending jar

  • BPA materials

  • 2-speed motor

  • Detachable arm

Blend capacity: 700ml

Stick length: 20.3 cm

Watts: 180


Pros:

  • Best value

  • Blending jar

  • Long blend arm

Cons:

  • Low blend capacity


If you on on the lower end of the budget then the best value KitchenAid Classic Hand Blender is a good choice.


It comes with a handy little blending jar for blending all sorts of soups, sauces and pastes in smaller quantities which also helps to keep things clean in the kitchen


However, because this product is at the lower end of the commercial stick blender budget, the Kitchen Aid has a small blending capacity of 700ml which means its only really suitable for small food operations.

2. Waring Light Duty 2-Speed Stick Blender



Key features:

  • High efficiency 2-speed motor

  • Semi-commercial warranty

Blend capacity: 5 litres

Stick Length: 17cm

Watts: 175


Pros:

  • Semi-commercial warranty

  • Large blend capacity

  • Recognized brand name

Cons:

  • Blending arm not detachable


Waring is a well known brand specializing in commercial kitchen equipment for restaurants and bars which makes the Waring Light Duty 2-Speed Stick Blender a solid choice.


It comes with a large blending capacity of up to 5 litres which means you can prepare food ingredients in larger quantities.


The Waring commercial stick blender also comes with a semi-commercial warranty which provides cover for light commercial use.


The main drawback with this product is the blending arm is not detachable which may make it a bit more awkward to clean as you have to hold the whole unit whilst cleaning.

3. Dynamic CF001 Dynamix Stick Blender



Key features:

  • Detachable arm

  • Ultra-strong titanium coated blade

  • 4 blade emulsifying knife

Blend capacity: 4 litre

Stick length: 16cm

Watts: 220

Pros:

  • Detachable arm

  • Large blend capacity

Cons:

  • Short blend arm

Third on the list is the commercial Dynamic CF001 Dynamix Stick Blender.


It comes with a large blending capacity of 4 litres (slightly smaller than Waring's 5 litre capacity) and a detachable arm making it easy to immerse fully in water when cleaning.


The main downside with this commercial stick blender is that for its blending capacity it has a relatively small (smallest on the list) blending arm which makes it less versatile and means you may need to use shallower bowls for blending.

4. Chef-Hub Heavy Duty Kitchen Commercial Stick Blender (Best allrounder)


Key features:

  • Detachable shaft

  • Variable speed control

  • Lock and safety button

  • 12 month warranty

Blend capacity: -

Stick length: 40cm

Watts: 500

Pros:

  • Best all-rounder

  • Long blending arm


Cons:

  • Blend capacity not advertised

The Chef-Hub Heavy Duty Kitchen Commercial Stick Blender is a good piece of equipment and the best all-rounder based on price and features.


Like the Kitchen Aid and Dynamic blenders it has a detachable arm and a very long mixing arm of 40cm which means you can blend large quantities of ingredients and use a versatile size range of mixing bowls.


It also has a safety lock button to minimize any kitchen accidents and comes with a 12 month warranty.


However, its worth noting that the blend capacity is not advertised on the product description on either Amazon or the manufactures website.


But going by its specs compared to the other blenders it should have a minimum 5 litre blending capacity.

5. Chef Works K472 Dynamic MX91 Stick Blender

(Top-end)


Key features:

  • Safety switch

  • Titanium coated blades.

Blend capacity: 100 litre

Stick length: 41cm

Watts: 500

Pros:

  • Long blending arm

  • Massive blend capacity


Cons:

  • Shaft not detachable

  • Relatively expensive

  • Single speed


At the top end of the budget of commercial stick blenders is the Chef Works K472 Dynamic MX91 Stick Blender.


This stick blender is an industrial piece of kitchen equipment and has a large blend arm (largest on the list) and massive blend capacity of 100 litres which means it can be used in large food production operations.


The main downsides of this product is that like the Waring commercial stick blender it does not have a detachable blending shaft and only operates on a single speed, which means less control over food consistency.


Furthermore, being at the top end its a relatively expensive product and you can arguably get the desired results for a fraction of the price if you need something for a smaller food operation.
