Advanced technology and an innovative quiet shield make the Hamilton Beach Commercial Quantum 950 high-performance blender an industry standout. The blender, built for busy foodservice applications like bars, restaurants, coffee shops and more, is equipped with a brushless DC motor for long life and energy efficiency. The motor is powerful enough to deliver fast blend times even with heavy loads. It includes 30 pre-loaded programs that cover a variety of applications from smoothies to frozen cocktails and frappes. The user can assign cycles to 5 buttons for quick results, and an additional 30 custom programs can be uploaded via USB. The quiet shield, which covers the 64 ounce (2 liter) jar during blending, reduces the noise to conversation level. The motor even turns off when the operator lifts the quiet shield to ensure quiet blending every time.
