Hamilton Beach: a brand known and trusted by millions of people around the world. Known for their affordability and quality, Hamilton Beach provides one of the best multifunction blenders on the market – minus the cost.
The Hamilton Beach Wave Crusher comes packed with power, 700 W to be exact, 14 blending functions and something called the “wave action system.” We’re going to be talking about the system in-depth shortly, and this is ultimately what makes this blender so efficient because it allows it to produce smooth results each and every time.
- 14 different learning functions
- Cleanup is a breeze with the self-cleaning mode
- Priced well below the competition
- Blends, chops, grinds and more
- Lid is difficult to remove
My biggest issue with this model is that the lid closes so tightly, it’s often difficult to remove. This may be an issue for older users, and should be considered before buying this model. For most people, it will take a snug pull before it comes off, but this also seals in the contents of the blender more thoroughly as a result.
Hamilton Beach Wave Crusher Multi-Function Blender Review
The Wave Crusher offers a unique, mess-free pouring lid that’s very convenient for anyone making smoothies. While I did have a little problem when adding yogurt and berries into the blender, I found that pushing the contents down further provided better overall results.
When you first start the blender, you’ll notice that the power cord is retractable and neatly placed under the blender. You also have a variety of settings to choose from, including:
You’ll also find the setting that allows you to self-clean this unit. This will clean the interior of the blender, but I do want to note that this does not clean the top lid thoroughly. I found that I have to take the lid off, and clean as normal for best results. The lid is black, so it can be difficult to see any of the left over ingredients on the lid at first.
The durable motor has a peak power of 700 W, and is powerful enough to crush ice. The unit features a patented Ice Sable blade construction that allows you to chop ice, and has been tested to withstand 8,000 blended frozen drinks by the manufacturer.
And the 40-ounce dishwasher-safe glass jar is both durable and large enough to make your favorite drinks: milkshakes, frappuccino’s, sauce, salsa, smoothies and an endless amount of other delicious drinks.
The Wave-action system (I briefly talked about it earlier), essentially forces your mixture down to the blades. What occurs is that the system will force the material up and down through the blades so that the end result is a very smooth, even blend no matter what you choose to blend together.
It’s the perfect budget-friendly model, and it costs under $35.
