How To Make The Most Of Bar Equipment

Mar 4, 2008
Bar equipment purchasing is an area that you can never be to informed about or have too much information to hand prior to making a purchase. A brief overview of some of the items below will hopefully help you to make a more informed decision and spend your budget more effectively.

Bar Blenders

A Bar blender is a must have item for any premises producing large quantities of cocktails or smoothies. The professional choice to consider for your bar blender would be from Hamilton Beach or Metcalfe, the best-known bar blender names for making great margaritas, daiquiris, every type of fruit and ice drink and more!!! When thirsty customers are waiting, take an order for a daiquiri, margarita, or any popular 16 oz icy drink and serve it up perfectly smooth and with no ice chunks in as little as 25 seconds. These bar blenders can be used in the commercial environment day in day out and are available with shatterproof polycarbonate or stainless steel containers of varying capacities.

Bottle coolers

If your are going to be serving bottled beers then you will need a display fridge or back bar cooler to store them in. Bottle coolers and back bar coolers are available with internal lighting (so the customer can see the products). All bottle coolers should give you the option of sliding doors (for when your space is at a premium) or hinged doors. These appliances are Perfect for domestic or commercial use. Display fridges and bottle coolers for bottled beers and wine, are available in Stainless steel or black finishes, both do the same job but give you the choice of matching your premises decor or styling.

Different bottle coolers are capable of holding different amounts of bottled beers and this is a major factor to consider when choosing the correct bottle cooler for your premises. Top loading bottle coolers are also available and are an option to consider if you don't require your products to be on display and require more storage space than a traditional glass fronted bottle cooler. Bottle coolers should come with a full parts and Labour warranty as standard beware of products that have a parts only warranty as though they may be cheaper initially if they break down can prove to be very very costly.

Ice crushers

Ice crushers range from hand operated units where you simply turn the handle to produce the crushed ice or to more powerful (and therefore higher production) electric versions where you fill a hopper and simply press a button. Professional electric Ice crushers can be capable of producing up to 6 kilos of ice per minute. You Simply fill the unit with ice cubes which feed down through stainless steel crushing blades, the ice can then simply be collected from the crushed ice storage area. Ice crushers are ideal for the preparation of cocktails in general and for garnishing purposes.
