Whether it's for an office party, to celebrate the completion of a large project or simply for preparing daily lunches in the breakroom, a blender is a perfect addition to any company kitchen. In addition you’ll want to keep other breakroom appliances like food processors and cookers on hand to make meal preparation fast and easy.
It's important to consider capacity when choosing between blenders. Extra-large pitchers are perfect for preparing smoothies for a company picnic, whereas single-serve blenders are ideal to keep in a small office for employees who like to take meals on the run. Select a blender with a transportable pitcher, so that anyone who wants to can blend, grab and go.
If you're planning on only using the blender for mixing a handful of ingredients, it's best to stick with a blender that features only 1 or 2 speeds. However, to target a variety of food types and purposes, a multi-speed blender is ideal, making it easy to control blade speed to crush up cubes of ice or make smooth, creamy concoctions.
Serving should be simple. Eliminate messes, spills and splatters by seeking out a kitchen blender with a spill-proof spout and stay-tight lid, which make it easy to direct blended drinks into cups - not on tables and floors. When the blender is not in use, an integrated cord wrap helps keep valuable counter space open and neat. For the fitness focused, consider a fitness blender to help keep you track with maintaining healthy behaviors.
