Hamilton Beach 12 Function Blender & Chopper with 40oz Glass Jar, 700W Red 58144

After 30 pulses on high speed (Grind/Crush ice mode), the blender reduced my 2 cup sample of whole raw almonds to mostly powder. Letting the engine roar for 15 more pulses (45 total) and I had legitimate almond flour on my hands. Unfortunately, no amount of time or motor pulses could transform my nutty materials into true, creamy almond butter.

On the upside, you can wash the jar and the lid in the dishwasher, and it’s also easy to wash by hand. The Hamilton Beach Single-Serve Blender is a personal blender that doesn’t perform very well. It has a sub-par build quality, so it doesn’t seem very durable, either. The Hamilton Beach Single-Serve Blender is bad for multiple servings of smoothies. The jar has a small 14oz capacity, so it’s only suitable for making one smoothie at once. It also takes a while to blend ingredients, so using it for several batches in a row is inconvenient.

It doesn’t have any anti-slip pads to help keep it stable while blending. The plastic lid also feels quite cheap, as it’s very thin and doesn’t fit tightly on the jar. Indeed, the appliance only succeeded in slicing through the bottom half of the cheddar, leaving plenty of the block of orange cheese unscathed. With an acceptable 700 peak-watt electric motor, this blender does have a decent amount of oomph to slice, dice, and churn through staple food-mixing tasks. That said, just like its blender brethren, the Stay or Go, this product is underpowered especially when stacked up against the big boys. Settling on a competent kitchen blending machine isn’t as easy a proposition as you might think.

If you want a personal blender that’s portable as well as compact, check out the cordless NutriBullet GO. Hamilton Beach® Hand Blenders quickly whip, blend, mix, chop and puree directly in your glass, bowl or cooking pan, so you don’t have to clean a separate bowl. In addition to the blending wand, select hand blenders are equipped with a stainless steel whisk for added versatility and convenience. It’s mostly made of plastic, which doesn’t feel very premium or durable.

However, blenders with programs or that run continuously after one push of a button are more convenient since this design means you can’t multi-task while your smoothie blends. The jar has a 14oz blending capacity, so it’s only suitable for blending hamilton beach blender small batches, like single-serve smoothies or protein shakes. The Hamilton Beach Personal Creations Blender is a fairly small, compact model. You can easily store it on your kitchen counter or in a cupboard without taking up much space.

The Magic Bullet Mini is a better personal blender than the Hamilton Beach Single-Serve Blender. The Magic Bullet is better built and makes a smoother blend with fibrous ingredients like kale. Unlike the Hamilton Beach, it can make smooth nut butter, but it’s not easy to use for that purpose. Hamilton Beach commercial blenders make a convenient addition to your kitchen prep equipment or beverage equipment. Frozen beverages, cocktails, or even soups and sauces blend up smoothly in a Hamilton Beach blender. Potent horsepower with expertly designed stainless steel blades ensure a consistent blending of ingredients.

Cleaning it up is a breeze since the jar, blades, and lid are dishwasher safe. The motor base has one button that you need to press constantly to blend. Simulating a pulse mode by pressing and releasing in short intervals is also easy.
