Waring vs Hamilton beach commercial milkshake machine: which is the best?

For restaurant or breakfast bar owners who are thinking of which commercial milkshake maker to buy for their business often encounter two common brands: Waring and Hamilton beach commercial milkshake mixer. You might be wondering: which one is really the best? Since I am quite the expert on these appliances (given the time I have spent with them), I thought I should give an opinion on which brand I think is the best. This is for your reference of course and you are free to disagree with what I said 🙂

Overall, the Hamilton Bleach milkshake machine functions as a better commercial milkshake maker. In fact, one of the reviewers on Amazon is a restaurant owner and he uses the Hamilton Bleach model.

The only downside is the higher price but as a business owner, the investment is worth it for a thicker and better quality milkshake for your customers. One thing to note is that these things used to cost a lot more. Just go to Ebay and look for vintage Hamilton Bleach milkshake makers. You will see people paying hundreds of dollars for a 1940 model!

If you are not a business owner but wants a commercial grade milkshake mixer, than the Waring might be enough. It still makes good milkshake but is a price point that is more affordable to the average family.
