MX1300.gifI really like commercial appliances, they don’t try to look trendy (however, they are very trendy), they are designed to serve a purpose and do a task well, without failing. Plus, if what you are making doesn’t come out as expected, there is no doubt it’s your appliance that caused the error.

A Good Blender Is Key
It’s no secret, I like blended drinks. Just the other night, I told my fiancé, that I’m not going to frequent a place that doesn’t have a blender. There have been times we have gone places that serve Margaritas, but they can’t be blended. What good is that? If you can’t offer the option of blended Margaritas, don’t offer them at all. So, new for 2006, if the place I’m at doesn’t have a blender, they don’t get my business.

Sure, there are people like, Mr. Doug Fleming, that think blended drinks are for sissies. I disagree, but I don’t speak with a thick Boston accent either. So, if you are like me and you want to make great blended drinks, you need a good blender. I currently own a Kitchen Aid, it’s alright, it makes a good blend, but it doesn’t compare to the Waring MX1300 Commercial Heavy Duty Blender. How can it? The MX1300 sports a 3 HP motor and you can blend a HALF-GALLON of beverage! Anything you drop into the 64 oz. Polycarbonate Container (stainless steel available for a premium charge) instantly becomes pulverized. What really sets the MX1300 from the rest is that 1) it’s a Waring — when you think blenders, think Waring 2) It has a blue backlight LCD display — great for us tech geeks 3) can be programmed with 4 settings — great for making regular drinks.

If you are in the market for a blender, be sure to check out the Waring Half-Gallon MX1300, I’ve seen it selling for around $440 online, with the stainless steel container option adding a couple hundred to the price. Sure it’s pricy, but think about all the great blended drinks you’ll enjoy!
