For the best result blend after blend, you need a sharp blade assembly that can pulverize ice, food and much more. Over time, blade assemblies can become dull. If you find your blender isn't blending like it used to, it might be time to replace the blade assembly. At Tundra Restaurant Supply, we carry a variety of blade assemblies and web blade assemblies from manufacturers like Vitamix, Waring, Hamilton Beach and much more!
What Makes a Durable Blade Assembly?
Stainless steel blades are designed to pulverize ingredients quickly and easily during blending. You'll also find that certain manufacturers like Vitamix make and sell a variety of different blender blade assemblies to suit the task at hand. For example, an ice blade is good at crushing ice, but not for making smooth drinks. Wet blades sold by Vitamix are also designed to blend things together while dry blades are designed to blast things apart (like milling hard grains into flour). At Tundra Restaurant Supply you can find a blade assembly kit for both wet and dry ingredients.
Signs of Wear on Your Blade Assembly
With any blender, you should regularly check your blade assembly for signs of wear. Check for cracks, nicks or other gouges appear in the surface. Blade assemblies should rotate with ease, and if you move it manually you should check for a consistent, light resistance. The best way to extend the life of your blender blade assembly is to never put foreign objects into the container while blending. Also avoid tilting the blender during blending, which could affect both your blade assembly and the drive socket.
