I've noticed in my wedding shooting days that serve-yourself hydration stations were becoming more and more popular. And for good reason - no need to hire staff to re-fill your drinks, your guests can get refreshed at will, great for weddings on hot days, and they also look really pretty!
Whether you're serving hot toddies or mulled wine this season, a proper beverage dispenser is an entertainment essential. Mix up a batch of your favorite winter libation and ensure that your guests' glasses stay filled to the brim with any of these ten sleek beverage dispensers.
If you are the type of person who frequently throws parties, owns a restaurant, or just simply enjoys beverages a lot, you may want to invest on a beverage dispenser. Instead of having to constantly mix your drinks or pull up a new glass for anyone who asks, all you have to do is to simply point at the dispenser and everyone can help themselves.
Instant drinks are always a plus in everyone's book, so if they are served or can serve themselves right away, everyone is happy. It not only saves time, but it allows the host to entertain other guests without having to worry about someone else needing another drink.
A beverage dispenser can carry a gallon or more of your favorite drinks, allowing you to make better use of your time instead of making a new drink. There are various types of dispensers available for whatever use you may need them.
Refrigerated beverage dispensers are ideal if you are serving frozen treats like slush, smoothies, and shakes. You can also use these to serve cold sodas, since majority of the models have multiple valves for different flavors. These kinds of dispensers normally have to be plugged in, though. They also cost more than any other kinds of dispensers and will typically be made of stainless steel, so get it if you are sure you will be serving lots of cold beverages constantly.
Insulated beverage dispensers are made of durable polycarbonate or polyurethane that will insulate your drinks so they stay at a constant temperature the entire time. They are commonly made of sturdy, dent-resistant material, so you can bring them anywhere and not worry about banging it up too much. They are cheaper than refrigerated beverage dispensers and come in different styles and colors.
Non-insulated beverage dispensers are the cheapest kind because it does not need electricity. It also does not maintain the temperature of the drink, but is easier to carry around and less difficult to maintain. These kinds of dispensers are perfect to bring during picnics, sporting events, camps, and other outdoor activities. Like insulated dispensers, these come in different forms and styles, too.
Besides the ease of use and the conservation of time brought on by the use of beverage dispensers, they can also add more flair to the party or the room. There are a variety of styles available now, so the dispensers can also double as decorations. They are certainly a step up from the typical jars and pitchers.
Another advantage of using beverage dispensers is that they allow you to use disposable cups. Since anyone and everyone can help themselves to the drinks, it follows that cups are made available. You just saved yourself some time from washing glasses and save some water, too. The only cleaning you will have to worry about is the dispenser. Cleaning it is easy, although you have to do it constantly if you are going to be serving different types of drinks every now and then.
