Few things are worse than a broken blender, coffee maker, or beverage dispenser on the fritz. Commercial beverage dispensers are used regularly throughout the day and rely on several parts to stay operational. But when it comes to motors, blades and other working mechanisms, the wear and tear will happen—but how quickly you're need a new part will vary depending on your level of us. Lucky for you, we can spare you the cost of a new blender or coffee maker by offering a diverse selection of replacement parts to get your equipment running again.
Your beverage equipment includes both hot and cold equipment such as coffee and tea brewers and blenders. Hot brewers are made up of several components that will naturally wear over time. Made up of several components, small parts like faucet seal washers, stem assemblies, grommets, gaskets and more can easily get lost or misplaced in a busy kitchen. Commercial coffee and tea dispensers are also susceptible to breakages to exterior parts like the spigot or faucet assembly during transportation or cleaning.
Due to the nature of commercial blenders, you'll find the need to replace a part (or two) on your blender during its lifetime; this is because blenders are used quite often both in the front and back of house, adding wear to moving components and sharp blades. Blade assemblies are one of those commercial blender parts that will also naturally wear after regular use. The more you blend, the faster your blades become dull. Some blades wear faster than others, which is one of the first times to consider when making your commercial blender purchase
The most common part to break on Vitamix blenders is the drive socket, which requires periodic replacement based on your level of use. Your Vitamix drive socket not only protects you and the motor should something happen to its rotation, but it helps reduce blending noise for those front of house applications. If you are blending beverages on a consistent basis throughout the day, that typical wear and tear on your drive socket may include nicks and cracks on the outer surface and worn inner gear teeth on the interior of the drive socket.
Of course, maybe you're not looking for a blender replacement part at all—maybe you just need an additional blender container (or two) so you have more flexibility mixing beverages during busy service times. More drinks = more money in your pocket, and any time wasted in taking orders and making beverages means you're not bringing in as much revenue as you'd like. Keeping additional parts on hand to speed up your efficiency and productivity is a great idea so you're never caught dealing with a broken unit during a busy service. Additional tubing for your coffee maker, airpot lid, and even warmer switch can prove useful to have when the unexpected happens—feels good to be proactive rather than reactive when disaster strikes.
