We are a two-blender family. My husband's smoothies have two many calories so I bought the Hamilton Beach Wave Station Express Dispensing Blender for about $25.00. I know that it is not recommended on epinions but I use it once in awhile and for those times it works for me.
Recommend this product?
It measures approximately 7 by 8 by 13 inches and has a 3-year limited warranty. It is made in China.
The 48-ounce jar is plastic so if it falls it won't break.
Hamilton Beach Wave Station Express Dispensing Blender has a Wave Action system. This actually works. The blender forces the mixture down into the blades. I have made smoothies before in other blenders and have to scrape the sides but I haven't had to this with Hamilton Beach Wave Station Express Dispensing Blender. I can watch his action!
It it dishwasher safe.
It is attractive.
It has a dispenser so I can just pull on it and out will come my smoothie. If I use the spout, there is a hidden spot under the blender for the cap. If I use the cap then I have to put the spout in a drawer.
It crushes ice really well.
It has 4 speeds which are smoothies, juicer, pulse, and milk shake.
There is also a dispenser function which the dial should be on when using the dispenser.
There is a nice large handle.
Unless I put the jar in the dishwasher I find it very hard to get the plastic really clean.
The dispensing spout does not go straight up and down easily so it feels as if I have to force it.
The V-shaped spout on the jar is too small. If my smoothie is thick then it comes over the sides of the jar unless I use the dispenser.
I haven't been using the Hamilton Beach Wave Station for awhile. I had a sinus elevation in preparation for a tooth implant and can't eat solid food for a week! We got the Wave Station from the basement and I am using it all the time. I love my liquid concoctions that I have been drinking and my blender is as good as new.
For the money this is a great, cute, lightweight blender. I don't expect it to last years and years but for the money it was a great buy.
