I have been looking for a smoothie maker for ages and it seems I have found exactly what I need in this Hamilton Beach Dual Wave Blender!
I have young children and making breakfast smoothies for them is by far the easiest way to get all that nutrition and goodness into their tummies. So I need a smoothie machine that is quick, easy to use, blends a perfect smoothie every time and is no fuss to clean up afterwards.
The first thing I noticed about the Hamilton Beach 52147H Dual Wave Versatile Blender (to give this super smoothie maker it’s full name!) is that it really is as versatile as its name implies! I have the choice of blending an eighty-ounce pitcher, a sixteen-ounce cup or two sixteen-ounce cups at the same time. This is perfect for me because everyone in the family has a different favourite type of smoothie. In less than thirty seconds, I can blend two different smoothies and keep both kids happy! Each of the separate blending stations has its own speed and blade settings, so you really can create two completely different drinks.Of course, this smoothie maker is not just for the kids! I cannot wait to have a party and treat my guests to some fabulous smoothies. Because I can make an eighty-ounce pitcher (which is, in my experience, far larger than the typical smoothie machine in this price range), or even two different drinks at once, there is no danger that my guests will get parched while they are waiting for their beverages!
This machine has a special Dual Wave-Action system, which gets rid of chunks of ice. I have used smoothie makers in the past that just cannot do this, and it was really annoying! So it is nice to know this will not be an issue. Another great thing about this machine is that it is dishwasher safe. After I’ve used it, I just give it a quick rinse then pop it in the dishwasher, and I know it will come out sparkling. Everything can go in the dishwasher, but I prefer to wash the removable blade by hand in hot water before popping it back in. This machine takes up only a small space on my countertop, which is another huge bonus. We all know that space in our kitchens is precious!
I have blended both fresh and frozen fruit in this Hamilton Beach Blender, and have had absolutely no problems. In my opinion, you would have a hard job finding a better model in the same price range. Right now, it is available on sale at Amazon right now with a great discount. This really is a great deal!
If you are worried about putting this machine together and then taking it apart to wash it, stop now! It could not be easier to dismantle and reassemble this blender. In any case, it comes with detailed instructions, guiding you through the process step by step. I think if you take good care of this machine it could last for several years. Think how many smoothies you could make in that time! This Hamilton Beach Dual Wave Blender definitely gets a big ‘thumbs-up’ from me!
