Waring MX1000XTX 3.5 HP Commercial Blender with Paddle Controls and 64 oz. Copolyester Container
( 4.9 stars from 29 reviews )
This was a hard review to write because after the first time I used this blender I was speechless. This blender is amazing, blends anything I throw at it. Hot or cold, you name it and it will blend it. Fast, smooth and not too loud. Every restaurant and home should have one.
This blender is almost frightening. I've been using consumer blenders for a long time, and after having burned out yet another Oster, I figured I'd take the plunge and get something better. I've seriously looked at Blendtec, Vitamix, and the new KitchenAid Diamond series, but they all seemed to have a few pitfalls, and were very expensive. This Waring looked like a great performer, and the many videos of it on-line show that it does an outstanding job. It does. Here are my observations:
The base alone is almost as tall as an entire consumer blender (it is BIG).
There is a lengthy, heavy-gauge cord.
The canister is very heavy as well (the metal of the base and blade assembly is very sturdy).
64 ounces is a LARGE capacity.
The width of the jar is such that you don't need a tamping stick.
How does it work? Amazingly well. Two speeds is plenty. The low speed is far faster than the fastest consumer blender, and the slow-start is brilliant.
I make cheesecake batter in my blender several times a year. It handles a full batch with ease, even when using the "heavy duty" sour cream and cream cheese from the local culinary supply.
I've make smoothies, milkshakes, soups, and LARGE amounts of pesto sauce, all with zero issues or complaints.
Cleanup is amazingly easy as well. Just fill the jar to the "max for cleaning" line, squirt in a few drops of detergent, replace the lid, and fire it up. Just rinse afterwards.
I'm kicking myself for not getting one of these sooner. I suspect this will be the last blender I'll ever have to buy.
this blender is perfect for my stores I give 5 star * * * * * is the best blender very strong long motor life I have warranty nice nice recomend
We make our own peanut butter and almond butter at our store, and this bad boy is perfect for the job. When summer finally gets here, I'll see how it does for smoothies. If it is as good as I suspect, I'll definitely be purchasing another!
I got this blender so fast i freaked. Really fast and powerful blender to have if you are serious smoothie maker. For the price you are paying you cannot go wrong with it. Just buy it you will be happy.
Use this everyday and it is absolutely super. Good quality, easy to clean and will blend almost anything. Thought I needed the dial feature but have been very satisfied with low,fast and pulse.
I have purchased this blender about 1 year ago. I didn`t want to write a review right away, wanted to see how it worked. I use this blender mostly to make crumbs for my cakes. It makes crumbs in seconds. I am very happy with this blender.
This is a great blender. The blender has plenty of power to provide ultra smooth smoothies. The blender is easy to operate and is a good value.
This a great blender, plain and simple. Guaranteed satisfaction, this is a versatile product that can puree anything from a hearty soup to a loaded smoothie, until velvety smooth. Very satisfied!
We use this blender for smoothies and Blenjava's, which is a blended milkshake drink. Both of these require ice to be blended and it works GREAT!
For twelve years we've been serving smoothies made from our Vitamix blenders. I decided to give this Waring a try because of the larger motor lower price. Wow! The Waring is quicker and blends more thoroughly than the Vitamix. Our staff uses the Waring all the time and they asked me to buy another one so that we can retire the old Vitamix blenders. By next summer I'm sure we'll they'll have their wish.
Good product. Easy to clean. Powerful. Nice large 64oz blender on it. Great for bar and kitchen, and at about a hundred bucks less than a VitaPrep, easy on the wallet!!!!
This is great. Just as good as the vita-preps, and at a lower price. they make perfect purees, great for soups, sauces, anything really.
This is a great blender ! It is used heavy duty in our restaurant to make smoothies and it never fails. would buy again !
Great blender. Super simple with very few buttons, but very powerful. Chops chocolate chips, pecan, walnuts, and ice with ease. Great for mixing thick milkshakes.
This is a very high quality blender!! Just as good if not better than the common vita-mix brand!!! Blends with ice and solid food easily!!
This is a 5 star product for me. This blender is extremely powerful and works fast, even at the low setting. The 64oz container/cup size makes it great for soups and sauces. Highly recommended.
This unit truly deserves a 5-star rating. I have had it for six months now, and wish I had bought it years ago. I got the 64 oz. container for larger batches of iced smoothies. It makes the smoothest pureed soups in just a few seconds -- I toss in chunks of cooked chicken thighs, lots of steamed broccoli & cauliflower, and a can of Swansons chicken broth for a thick and creamy puree. It handles the ice for my smoothies and frozen margaritas without a problem (something my other blenders could never do). With all that going on and it doesn't budge from it's place--no walking. It's built like a little tank with minimal moving parts, and I expect it to be in service for a very long time because of the quality materials used in its manufacture. I'm 64, and this could well be the last blender I will ever have to purchase. A well-planned unit that's simple to use and easy to clean. 6 months and I'm still excited about it! I often remark to my husband, "Why didn't we invest in a quality commercial blender 40 years ago?"
Very effective at pulverizing ice; sturdy construction ensures the machine, especially the container, will not break. Even when dropped, the container did not break. Recommended for any bar.
this a great product.. works terrific. we make our own sauces for the meats and this blender is awesome. Couldn't ask for a better product.
This blender is expensive but so far pretty great. It is very tall at 18 inches but constructed of metal in all the right places. Worth the expense and hopefully will outlast any other blender I have had.
A powerhouse of a blender, fast and efficient. A little noisy, but I would recommend this blender very highly. The container is light and seems very tough.
I purchased this blender 3 months ago and it is by far the best
blender I have seen. It turns frozen Strawberries and / or ice into
snow in just a couple of seconds. We have a large family and it is
being used daily many times. Soups have taken on a new meaning in our
lives, almost every day, due to the ability of this blender. The spout
is no drip. The base can be easily wiped off. The container is huge
and more importantly the lid is so well designed you do not need to
stand and hold the lid as you have to on other so called commercial
blenders. Highly impressed.
Thank you Waring & Webstaurantstore,
This blender is great! We use it everyday to mix our sauce recipes and we use it for a lot of our wing recipes too. Couldn't ask for a better product.
I have been in the market for a professional / commercial grade blender for a very long time and I have spend hours researching the cost / features of several blenders. I found myself in need of a high powered blender because my Oster 6803 450 Watt blender was not up to the task of processing large chunks of frozen fruit for smoothies, and would simply lock up. I ended up looking into the blenders that dessert and smoothie shops use and that what lead me to the Waring MX line of blenders, the Vitamix 5200, and the Blendtec 1560-Watt Blender.
After comparing all three blenders I opted to go with the Waring due to the MX series all metal construction between the drive shaft and the gears on the actual carafe, the lower price, and the fact that the Warring also has models lacking the electronic membrane keyboard interface (Unnecessarily complex and very expensive to repair down the line). The replacement carafe on the MX line is much less than the other brands. Most importantly I found that more restaurants are using the Waring series of blenders, as these machines are designed to produce in excess of a hundred smoothies a day under normal use.
I was initially going to order the Waring MX1000R which is the highest end blender that Waring advertises towards it's home user market, however that model has a smaller 3.0 HP motor and is more than the more expensive MX1000XT which is the entry level commercial blender with a 3.5 HP motor. Other than the larger motor, the two units are identical with the same carafes, switches, and accessorizes. In the end I ended up purchasing the Waring MX1000XT 3.5 HP blender for the lower cost and I could not be happier.
*** A word of caution, no matter how powerful the blender, you will need some level of liquid in order to properly blend things. I have filled the entire unit with frozen fruit, however some juice is needed to get the blending process started.***
This is one of the best purchases made. It blends everything for smoothies really fast including the ice. It is extremely easy to use and clean. I bought two!
Stand back.... this thing is awesome!
Great Blender and what a deal! I checked out several 3 hp blenders and could not find one at price close to this. I just got this one on Saturday and have had smoothies every morning since it arrived. This blender chopped an avocado seed with no problem and turned hazel nuts into dust in my smoothie. I couldn't be happier!
I did a lot of research before buying this item. I have used this blender for 10 months now. I have not had any problems with this model. I love it and use it daily. I have used mostly for green smoothies but have also used for creamed soups and juicing. It is powerful and will blend anything in seconds. The container is a good size, and has not had any discoloring or wear shown. It is easy to clean. I fits on my countertop under my cabinets. I am overall very pleased with purchase, and would recommend to a friend (in fact I have). I also would recommend Webstaurant store to buy from. They were very professional, quick to deliver and had great communication.
