Let’s start in the Front of the House
The Waring BB150 Blender was developed with your bar blending needs in mind.
This blender can be used for blending bar mixes like simple syrup and for bases for flavored teas and blended coffee drinks. It makes easy work of fruit purees for coladas, margaritas and smoothies. Its ½ HP motor crushes ice in seconds. The huge 48 oz. container has an opening in the lid to add ingredients as you blend and a 6 foot cord.
A bartender’s best friend!!
The Vitamix BarBoss Advance. We think the name says it all.
This blender is the essential tool for adding or expanding your business’ blended beverage program. It features a powerful 2 HP motor, 6 optimized programs, and has automatic shut off allowing you to start blending for one guest and then take another guest’s order without having to worry about over mixing or burning the blender up!!
Pitchers full of smoothies, frozen lattes, or gallons and gallons of fruit puree, all at your fingertips and at lightening speed.

Because the base of this blender will accommodate a stainless steel or a polycarbonate container, this blender can be used for hot or cold blending. However, it is imperative to use the correct container. Generally speaking, the stainless steel container should be used for ALL hot product blending.
This blender will blend, crush, or chop quickly with its ¾ HP motor. The operator can choose from high, low, or pulse settings.
Now, let’s visit the Back of the House:
Your menu will help determine your prep needs. However, it has been Dine’s experience that these tools are so diverse and add so many options for food prep situations that operators go wild with new and innovative ideas to incorporate into daily specials or to even procure a coveted spot on the menu!
The Waring CB15 Food Blender is in a class all by itself. This tried and true one gallon blender is a mainstay in many commercial kitchens.
The patented stainless steel blending container has channels to allow for rapid movement of product, providing optimum mixing in a very short amount of time. A thick rubber lid is held by clamps so everything stays inside once this thing “takes off”. The CB15 features 3 speeds and a monstrous 3.75 HP motor powering it through mixing eggs for quiche, chopping onions and jalapeños for salsa, getting all the lumps out of waffle mix, and more!!
Imagine the possibilities.
Waring Big Stix Immersion Blenders. The bigger the job, the bigger the stick.
These gentle giants house a 1 HP motor and when on high produce 18,000 RPMs. You can mix, puree, emulsify and combine ingredients up to 50 gallons. That’s a LOT of mixing. The blender shaft can also be interchanged with a 10” Stainless Steel Whisk Attachment. Suddenly, you are able to whip, cream and mash!! The bigger sticks have a bowl clamp option available to allow for hands free operation.
These sticks will radically change the way you prep.
Immersion blenders revolutionized food prep in commercial kitchens. Along the way, they have helped many restaurants improve food quality, food presentation, food safety, and PAYROLL and LABOR expenses. These sticks can replace the chopping and mixing of numerous employees and get the job done quickly, efficiently, and uniformly. There are many brands and sizes of immersion blenders available at Dine Company.
