Bar Maid’s BLE-310 is a powerful 3-hp blender designed for making smoothies, beverages, soups and salsas. For “hands-off” operation, it features variable speed/timer controls and auto stop that can be easily programmed and repeated. A pulse and unique “Infinity” feature varies the speed low to high, moving the contents for smoother consistency. This well-made blender has rubber-coated metal flanges where the container/blade assembly sits on the base. The BPA-free Triton 1/2-gal. container is ideal for large batches of frozen drinks such as margaritas.

A Quiet Shield reduces noise, and the unit can be mounted in the countertop.
