When Mr. John Oster tasted success in the professional grooming industry, he decided to expand his manufacturing company to cover small home electrical appliances. This decision saw John Oster Manufacturing Company buy off Stevens Electric (famed for inventing the 1923 liquefier blender) in 1946. Stevens Electric was manufacturing drink mixers that targeted soda fountains and bars. But, John Oster directed his engineers to come up with ways of enhancing them for broad uses. Meanwhile, the Osterizer® Blender hit the markets, rising to become a staple in today’s kitchens. Now a subsidiary of Sunbeam Corporation, the Oster brand has built its name and reputation for providing stylish, powerful, and quality small appliances. Some of these include juice extractors, mixers, toasters, and bread makers.
The Oster Tall Commercial Milkshake Maker and Fountain Mixer is an attractive and classic appliance that takes after the mixers you’d find in soda fountains and bars of the 1950s. Don’t be mistaken though, this milkshake maker is powerful and smart enough to turn on or off when you insert or remove the accompanying polished aluminum cup. In addition to its stable base and auto-shutoff function, it incorporates an arrow support feature to allow you to blend your drinks hands-free. Using this milkshake maker, you can engage in other tasks in peace as you wait for your delicious treat.

On a hot summer day, you’d agree with us that a cold milkshake is refreshing. It doesn’t matter whether you’re out on the town or lazing in the house; a well-done drink will revitalize and cool you. However, mixing a good milkshake starts by getting quality equipment and the right ingredients. For instance, you can make your own ice cream or invest in a quality knife set and cutting board for slicing fruits if you fancy fruity milkshakes. When the time comes for blending your ingredients, you’ll need a milkshake maker that’ll beat them into a smooth and frothy mixture.
Milkshake machines are available in either handheld or freestanding designs. They also come in varying sizes and thus differ in output. Your choice of a milkshake maker will depend on your desired output and your recipe. The good news is that, irrespective of size, quality milkshake machines give you the flexibility of controlling the blending process to give you a better consistency and an even distribution of flavors. Also, because of their fast action, milkshake makers produce chillier drinks. However, countertop blenders are also available if you aren’t shopping strictly for a milkshake maker. So, let’s find out what we need to look for when choosing a milkshake maker.
The price of a milkshake maker depends on its type and design. For example, a single-speed drink mixing machine can cost you about $125, while a three-speed commercial milkshake maker with three spindles can cost more than $300. There are also cheaper models in the market, but they’re likely to have weak motors that aren’t efficient. But there’s no cause for alarm, as we haven’t featured such products in our review. It is important to focus on products that meet your needs and are within your budget.
Whether you’re making milkshakes for sale or home consumption, you need a machine that’s efficient and reliable. No one wants to work with equipment that breaks down unexpectedly. It’s thus important to select your milkshake maker carefully to make sure that it meets your drink mixing needs.
Here are the important features to look for in a milkshake machine:
These features will help identify a milkshake maker that works for you.
Different manufacturers use different materials to build their milkshake makers. Some brands use die-cast metal for the body work, while others use durable plastic. However, when it comes to the whisk design, stainless steel is the most common material used.
The overall design of a milkshake machine will depend on its type. For example, the features of a handheld machine are different from those of its freestanding counterpart. While the handheld milkshake machine will feature an ergonomic handle, the freestanding machine is likely to have a tilting spindle head and a large base. In addition, most of these freestanding milkshake machines will have docking stations for mixing cups that are equal to the number of spindles.
At this point, it’s important to note that the mixing cups may or may not come together with the machines. This depends solely on the manufacturer. However, it’s important to confirm the recommended mixing cup size before ordering the machine if it doesn’t come with one.
Milkshake makers are specially designed to run on electric motors that use AC or DC power. The AC-powered machines usually come with extension cords to allow convenient plugging into the power source, while the ones that run on DC use batteries.
The motor used may provide single or multiple speeds. Each speed is meant to cater for a specific work load, and thus, the most versatile machine will feature multiple motor speeds. So, as you choose a milkshake maker, focus on what you want to use it for to help you gauge the expected output.
As you shop for a milkshake maker, look for features that make it easy to clean, use, and maintain. For instance, if you decide to buy a handheld machine, consider one with a handle that’s soft and comfortable on hands. On the other hand, freestanding designs with detachable tilting spindles are easy to clean. It’s also important to note that machines with multiple spindles give you the flexibility of serving multiple orders at a go, and are thus the best options for busy businesses.
Milkshake recipes are diverse, and it’s common for people to prefer certain ingredients over others. To help you make a variety of great milkshakes with different ingredients, you’ll need a machine that gives you multiple motor speeds. This is because each speed offers a specific level of smoothness suitable for certain ingredients. Therefore, a milkshake maker with multiple speeds is a good choice for a restaurant or food stand where customers are likely to order drinks that are flavored differently. It is, thus, wise to go for a machine that will give you the flexibility of making milkshakes using various recipes.
