Summary: I got a more expensive blender and ended up taking it back after my sister-in-law told me she had the Hamilton Beach Commercial Bar blender for 14 years and she still loves hers. I bought it, and I am sure I will enjoy this blender for a long time as well!
Summary: I like this product. It is light weight and makes wonderful smoothies. It does make alot noise when blending and vibrates. It is important to make sure the suction cups on the feet are secure.
Summary: We have a 13 year old Hamilton Beach blender that we purchased from a restaurant supply company as we were selling our restaurant. It is still going. We had a need for a second blender and thought we would stick with what served us so well. This is a completely different animal.
Summary: After wearing out a couple of your typical dept store blenders, I wanted one that would last with daily use. My wife and I started a diet (body for life) which involved making multiple protein shakes every day.
Summary: Does a decent job with unfrozen items, but frozen items tend to jam up and require frequent manual stirring (thus creating a mess). Being that i bought it for smoothies, it makes it a bit of a headache. Blending only a few ounces at a time works, but thats a headache too.
Summary: After a while of usage the gear melted!! the plastic part attached to the glass melted and when I wanted to go and buy that specific part I almost cry because of its price, with a little more I could buy a new one instead of just the part melted.
