A Look at Professional Juicers
Juicers are tools that help separate the juice from either fruits or vegetables. There are two types of commercial juicers (which can also be used as home juicers) readily available in the market today, which are indispensable for every bar, pub, tavern, or restaurant: Centrifugal juicers and masticating juicers. What are the differences between the two juicers? A centrifugal juicer utilizes a cutting blade to extract juice from fruits or vegetables while a masticating juicer—as its name suggests—masticates, mashes, and crushes produce with the use of an auger for the juice-extraction process.
Regardless of which juicer you choose, it is of the essence to properly clean your equipment so you can ensure that it works properly. Needless to say, proper cleaning of juicers can be done by using simple cleaning equipment that include brushes, dish-washing soap, and dishcloths. It is also important to make sure that, if you are using an electric juicer, to unplug it first before cleaning. Also, it is more advisable to manually wash juicers rather than putting them in a dishwasher.
A Look at Restaurant Blenders & Commercial Grade Blenders
Blenders are machines that turn solid ingredients into liquid or semi-liquid by blending them.
The first blender was invented by Stephen Poplawski. Poplawski's invented his blender in the year 1919 and then patented it three years after. However, this first blender was actually used not to blend solid ingredients but to prepare soda-fountain beverages. The actual blender that is used as we know now was actually an improvement on Poplawski's machine, which was done by Fred Osius and thus gave birth to the Waring blender.
Blenders, regardless of brand, type, and model, have the following basic important parts: housing, blade, jar, gasket, seal ring, base, and lid.
The blender's base houses the motor, which is connected to the blade and is where the buttons to control the machine are located. The gasket prevents leaking, while the jar contains the ingredients to be blended and the lid acts as a to avoid spilling the contents of the jar while blending.
As with juicers, it is important to clean a blender well so that it is always in perfect working condition. Commercial blenders and industrial blenders, as with home blenders, can both be cleaned using the same process. And the cleaning is pretty straightforward: dismantle the blender , making sure to follow the safety instructions on the manual, and then you can proceed to clean the components using simple water and soap. Dry the parts and then reassemble the blender then use as needed.
What Are Glass Rimmers?
Glass rimmers are a type of bar accessory that is utilized to apply salt or sugar to the rim of a cocktail or margarita glass. Rimmers generally consist of one or more shallow plastic or metal discs that the bartender or barmaid turns the glass upside down into. The discs of a rimmer can be filled with either sugar or salt.
