I purchased the Hamilton Beach Wave Station 54614 Blender to make smoothies. It broke after the first smoothie was made. The smoothie that it did make, had large chunks of fruit in it. I did not over pack it. I bought a premade frozen smoothie pack. No ice was required to be mixed in; only milk, so the mixture was not really that hard. It was not mixed well at all. Save your 20 bucks. That's the last time I buy something displayed on the edge of the aisle! The product was nicely packaged and came in appealing colors. The instructions were easy to interpret. The product felt flimsy and cheaply made. There are not a lot of removable parts, so it is fairly hard to clean. The blender has 3 options on the control knob. They are off, blend, and dispense. The blender must actually be running in order to dispense the mixture. Since the machine broke after the first smoothie, I had to spoon it out because it would not come out of the pour spout with the machine unable to operate. The product comes with a 3 year warranty, but you can not take it back to the location from which you purchased it. Instead, you must send it back to the manufacturer, footing the shipping cost yourself. You could probably buy another blender for the price of shipping.
