Seven-hundred watts strong, this Amazon's Choice kitchen helper has impressive ice-crushing capabilities. Sleek but strong, it's no big deal to take out or put away. It’s “lightweight, but powerful enough for all my blending chores," wrote one reviewer. "I am amazed how well it works. Even better, cleanup is a breeze! The blades are removable for easy cleaning and are dishwasher-safe along with the jar and lid."
Various reviewers say this incredibly low-priced Hamilton Beach compares favorably to expensive models from brands like Cuisinart, Vitamix and Breville. Why pay for overkill, when this guy gets the job done? After bad experiences with a pricey blenders that broke a few months in, this shopper posted "Beats my $200 Breville, hands down." The rave continues: "Close to five years later, and [the Hamilton Beach Power Elite] is still going strong. In fact, I would say it hasn't lost a beat since it was brand-new."
The Hamilton Beach Power Elite is well-designed, with great functionality. Just add any liquid (nutritious or decidedly not), followed by any other ingredients, choose a setting and let 'er rip! The company's patented Wave-Action system means your yummy concoction-to-be is continuously pulled down into the blades for consistently smooth results.
Another happy shopper reported,"This blender was purchased to replace a Cuisinart that I bought at Costco that had all the bells-and-whistles and cost more than double. When it broke down after a few years worth of work (and that was my second), I decided that I would just get a good blender with nothing fancy. I got this and I love it. I use it to make pudding, puree split pea soup, and some drinks...It surprised me how much better it does the job than my Cuisinart!"
Bonus: You’ll never waste a drop with the Power Elite, thanks to its unique no-mess spout. It even has a hinged cap. Brilliant. "I love the pour spout!" says the reviewer above.
So many thrilled shoppers can't be wrong. Pour yourself something pretty and raise a glass to good health!
