That said, I've been using a Hamilton Beach wave maker 10 speed for years and am still learning new things about what it can do and how to use it. The usual no-brainer things like making smoothies with ice and fruit came pretty easy. Four months ago I was diagnosed as Stage-2 diabetic, had very high blood pressure, and my serum cholesterol was also very high, with high LDL and low HDL. ... All not good. I determined to make the necessary corrections through diet. My trusty Hamilton Beach blender led the charge.
It was a foregone conclusion that I must limit or avoid all starches, which meant no more baked, mashed, or fried potatoes or anything made with processed white flour, like white bread, pizza, spaghetti, etc. And, of course, no more ice cream or anything else sweetened with processed sugar or corn syrup. ... All favorite comfort foods. ... So what's left?
Before going further I'll tell you I've since corrected the blood pressure, cholesterol, and blood sugar (I'm no longer diabetic), and my cheapie Hamilton Beach blender was key.
With a formal academic semi-medical research background, I'm used to doing research.Read more ›
The variety of options make it five-stars too. Heft, look, performance all
tops too. It'sall I could ask of a blender. Alot more than I'd think to ask,
So, when I went looking for a decent price for a high-quality blender, to be used at the concession stand at the sports complex that I work out of, I knew I needed something better. After some research, I settled on the Hamilton Beach WaveMaker 10-speed. I purchased two of them.
These blenders have been service for nearly a year. They are used almost daily; some weekends (when we hold tournaments) they may each blend 15 or more smoothies in an afternoon. That's more work than some RESTAURANT blenders do! The WaveMakers have worked perfectly and are still going strong. And, the glass jars are easy to clean.
I'm writing this review now because I just came back to Amazon to purchase one for my own house, replacing the Oster that has given up the ghost for the third time.
You really should not turn this on if you think someone may be sleeping anywhere nearby--- this definitely is not for an apartment dweller. It is like a buzz saw. Even during the evening I wonder about a neighbor who might be calmly reading, or perhaps putting a child to sleep, when I turn it on. I will have to get some cork to put under it or otherwise figure out how to tone it down-- perhaps HB can think about that for the next model.
Also: watch your back(or its back): because of the strong ice-breaking suction in the middle, the sides run up, and due to the direction of the spin, the overflow first is hidden, in the back.
One other point. You have to be extremely careful with the very sharp blades (no hand hold more than a fraction of an inch away) if you take it apart to clean. I just worry that over the lifetime of owning it, there will be one distracted moment when I half drop and then grab the blades and slice open my hand. I am trying to be very careful and attentive.

use once every other day for the past 2 years and still works like the day we got it. And very easy to cleanPublished 10 months ago by B. Immink
Great tool! Perfect for making all sorts of mixtures, in particular smoothies, milkshakes, and ayran. Operates loudly but I don't think there is any quieter version out there.Published 16 months ago by Andac Armutlulu
