    Lovely blender. Works great for crushing ice and making smoothies. That's all I needed it for, and that's all I've used it for so far. I have yet to read the owners manual, but it's supposed to be a 12 speed. Far as I can tell, calling a button two speed by giving it two names, i.e. puree and whip, doesn't change the fact that it spins at the same rpm for both functions. It's six speed, with a pulse button for the slowest speed and one for the fastest speed. Both of which act as off buttons. With that aside, at 700 watts it's a great deal. Great build quality for the price, even though made in China, but what isn't nowadays? Sturdy construction, Glass carafe, snug fitting lid. My wife has a bit of trouble removing the lid as it fits quite tight, but I assume it'll loosen up some as it breaks in. I have no prob with the lid. The blade fitting is easily removable from the bottom to easily clean up sticky jobs. We are both quite happy, and would definitely purchase this again if we needed to replace it. I would definitely recommend this for anyone who wants a nice blender on a budget. Priced right, good quality, easy to use.

    I've always liked these Hamilton Beach Wave Crusher blenders. This one is much quieter than the one I've been using for several years. The other one still works, but I needed another as my wife is into making protein shakes as well. We live in a small apartment and this new one doesn't scare our 2 & 3 year old because it's much quieter than the other we've been using. Don't get me wrong, it's still loud, it is a blender after all. Great blends, smooth shakes, easy to clean highly recommended!

    I liked this blender because it had a glass bowl and 700w. I bought it especially to crush ice. It doesn't work well for this purpose. Only the first couple cubes crush then the ice freezes around the blade. It is not as noisy as some reviews said, but overall I am very disappointed.

    I needed this blender to make mixed drinks really, it has enough power to get the ice crushed and mixed into the liquid for a smooth drink. I also use it to grind oatmeal into a fine powder for cookies. It's not too big to sit on the counter

    She uses this to make smoothies everyday. It is built sturdy and has options with the wave action can control the texture of the blend. The spout on top is very handy and it is not difficult to clean at all.

    I love this blender it does everything you want plus make drinks with crushed ice . I also make soup with this blender and it has no problem. I had a Hamilton Beach prior to this that was from 1983 so I know this is a good brand.

    I have blended several rather chunky combinations and it has worked great. Easier to clean than I expected too. For the price, Its very powerful and does everything I need a blender for.

    This blender fills all of my needs. Powerful, blends well, and I especially like the glass pitcher and pouring spout. It is a tad on the noisy side, but not enough to bother me.

    I read several reviews for different products and found this one a good option for making smoothies but it was not good and I returned it. I had to open it and mix again to make smoothie.

    This is a good value for the money and seems well made. The only thing I can complain about is the flimsy label on the front around the buttons.
