Waring Professional Bar Blender
Sometimes the original is the best. Only modestly updated since it's debut, the Waring Professional Bar Blender ($95) is a true classic, with workhorse sensibilities. Available in stainless steel or bright copper, the Waring features a 40-oz. glass mixing jar, a powerful 390-watt motor, high and low speeds, a center cap that doubles as a 1-oz measure, and a heavy-duty build that will keep it running for years to come.
