Like the VCM and the food processor, a blender consists of a motor in a base, topped by a container with a spinning blade. Because the blender's container is tall and narrow,it is more suited for mixing and puréeing liquids than for chopping solid foods,however. In the commercial kitchen, the blender is used to mix, purée, and emulsify liquids such as soups, sauces, and batters. It is also used in bars and coffeehouses to prepare certain drinks.
Blender motors may have from 2 to 10 or more speeds.The containers are made of stainless steel, glass, or plastic.The blade assembly at the base of the container can be disassembled for thorough cleaning.
