2017 marks the 80th anniversary of commercial catering appliance manufacturer Waring.
The firm’s history stretches back to the launch of the world’s first ever blender, the ‘Miracle Mixer’ in 1937, funded by popular 1930s singer and musician Fred Waring. The last few decades have seen enormous growth for the Waring brand as the company’s product portfolio has expanded to include a range of blenders and food processors as well as contact grills, waffle makers and ice crushers.
One of Waring’s latest advances is the Torq 2.0 series of blenders. This range of three blenders (toggle switch, electronic keypad or speed control dial) delivers a 2hp, 1,500W motor supplying power to blend smoothies, cocktails, iced coffee or chocolate, soups, dips and sauces.
With the power to blend three 16oz. margaritas in 8 seconds or less the Waring Torq range is said to be suitable for bars, cafes or restaurants where space is limited. A 1.4litre BPA-free, clear-view, stackable jar with English and metric graduations plus a heavy duty stainless steel blade is claimed to ensure the blenders are built to last.
To aid convenience, the vinyl lid has a removable centre cap to feed ingredients into the jug while blending and all parts of the blender that come into contact with food or liquids can be placed in a dishwasher.
Waring appliances are available to UK dealers through Uropa Distribution.
