Apartment/ Condominium... smooth blending.. Noise level is unbelievably soft.. cover makes it even softer..
Since this blender has a sound suppression unit, I tested it out with a handy decibel meter, set on A weighting. I tested this blender versus two other units, first my 6.5amp Kitchen Aid ProLine Blender, and next a 3.6amp Hamilton Beach B91. The Kitchen Aid, no longer produced, is a beast, with a heavy metal base and tons of power. Realize that significant noise comes from the container depending on how smoothly the gear/blade assembly turns. That was always the downfall of the Kitchen Aid. At LO power, the Kitchen Aid is 61dB without the pitcher and 74 with; at HI, it's 84 without the pitcher and 93 with. (It's even worse if you're chopping ice cubes). This is why when I run this, my family leaves the kitchen. The lower power Hamilton Beach starts off at the same 61dB (LO, without pitcher) and goes up to 86dB (HI, with pitcher).
So now we have a feeling for how this works....let's look at the Weston. The Weston, unlike many other models, has a continuous speed setting knob, very much like a volume knob, so that you can make fine adjustments to the speed. The electronics are adjusted nicely so that the unit won't overload and so that it adjusts to the chosen speed gradually, without the base moving around due to torque of a high speed start or stop. At low power, it's only 57dB without the pitcher, and 60dB with the pitcher. Now put on the sound suppression jug and we come down to 59dB. At HI, our numbers are 85, 87, and 84. The first thing this tells us is that the Weston is comparatively quiet...it has significantly more power than the Hamilton Beach but on HI speed is just about the same apparent loudness as the H-B.
So does the sound suppression cover work? Well, yes, but I don't think it's worthwhile for a minute or two of blending, and most blending acts take far less time. So bottom line on the sound suppression is a big "meh."
That said, the blender itself works wonderfully. I'm impressed with the tamping stick, which I nearly always need for smoothie creations to get rid of air bubbles that form in all blenders, and which didn't come with my other blenders. The pitcher is a lightweight 4 cup unit with high contrast markings, and while it doesn't have a handle, I didn't find this problematic. This is not the blender to use for big soup creations - the pitcher just isn't large enough. But for sauces, smoothies for two, and other iced concoctions, this is a blender with more power than most that I couldn't bog down no matter what I threw at it so long as everything had at least one cup of liquid. Overall, this is a low profile high power blender that easily fits under cabinets and can be left on your counter without taking up too much space.
This is one of a family of similar blenders Hamilton Beach sells under several brands, including its own name (abroad), Jamba Appliances , and Proctor Silex (with different auto buttons). (Hamilton Beach is merged with Proctor Silex, has a licensing agreement with Jamba Juice, and owns Weston.) The Jamba version is popular and competitively priced, and there are numerous customer reviews of it that probably also apply to this version.
This is evidently modeled on Vitamix blenders like the Pro 750 , an excellent model. Weston's 8-year warranty matches Blendtec's and exceeds Vitamix's by a year, though Weston's doesn't cover shipping and normal wear like the other two. The price is significantly less than a new Vitamix or Blendtec, but currently more than some reconditioned ones. The reconditioned Vitamix E320 is cheaper but lacks the auto presets and only has a 3-year warranty.
The Weston is made in China, while the Vitamixes and Blendtecs are built in the US. There are a lot of Chinese copies of Vitamix, some better than others. This one is a serious blender. The parts are substantial and appear well made. The controls have a solid feel--the variable-speed dial feels smoother than the one on the E320. Only time will tell if it deserves the long warranty, and how the warranty will be interpreted. The Jamba has been out for three years and seems to be holding up OK, based on owner reports. One issue I've seen is that several Jamba owners report they can't get a replacement jar, that they've been on backorder for months.
This is a bit taller than the description says, a little over 17-1/2". It's a touch over 7-1/2" wide, with the jar handle sticking out an additional half-inch to the side. It's 8-3/4" deep plus a bit to accommodate the cord that sticks out the back. That's very close to the size of the E320, less than 1/4" taller and about that much less wide and deep (without the cord and jar handle), though it somehow looks even smaller.
The base weighs a few ounces over 8 pounds, almost a pound and a half less than the E320 base. The jars are almost the same weight, about 2-1/2 pounds, the E320's an ounce or two more.
The cord reaches about 40" off the back.
On/off, pulse, and variable speed dial are the manual controls, plus a power button on the side to help avoid accidental starts.
The pulse and on controls automatically start at low speed and quickly rev up instead of going straight to high speed. That's a nice feature that saves stress on the drive train. The Vitamix doesn't do that, but the instruction say you should do it manually, and also the reverse when turning it off.
The four auto presets are programs for soup, smoothie, ice crush, and flour. They run the blender for you, adjusting the speed through a preset amount of time, stopping automatically when through.
The horsepower spec is listed as higher than Vitamix's, 2.4 vs 2.2, but it's not the way it seems. Weston's is peak *input* horsepower, the most electric power the motor consumes when it starts. Vitamix's is peak *output* horsepower, the most mechanical power the motor produces. An efficient motor might produce 80% of what it takes in, so you'd expect 2.4 HP input to produce maybe 1.9 HP output.
That suggests the Vitamix motor is actually more powerful. But neither measure is about power at the blades, where it really counts. Since the motor has to deal with friction and blade weight, and drive the fan too, we can't tell from those figures how much power the blades have. (I give more details about why most power specs are useless at the end of my Amazon review of the E320. Blendtec claims 3 HP output, but Vitamix claims their testing shows their 2/2.2 HP motor matches or outperforms it. Reviews of practical use don't show a clear difference.)
Similarly, the amperage rating of 12.5, vs Vitamix's 12 or 11.5 (depending on where you look), or Blendtec's 13, isn't what it seems. Weston says in the manual their measure is based on an optional configuration: "The blender as provided may draw significantly less power." We don't know how the others were measured either. And amps are about input, not power at the blades.
Weston claims its blades move up to 210 mph, presumably when spinning free, as that's how it's usually measured, so again limited in practical value. Vitamix doesn't give a figure for its 4" blades that I'm aware of, but they've been independently measured at an rpm that indicates they spin at up to 270 mph, again with nothing to blend. Blendtec claims up to 310 mph, but I haven't seen it independently tested.
My own very crude comparison is based on the pitch of the blender sound. To my ears, when both are spinning free the Vitamix can spin significantly faster. When blending it's harder to tell, but there seems to remain a somewhat higher pitch at top speed for the Vitamix.
Performance in the kitchen
This is the part that really matters. Mostly this works as well as my E320, only rarely showing what may be signs of less power.
The Weston makes great smoothies very quickly, mostly in under a minute. The auto preset for that is handy, but if it's thick or has a challenging ingredient like a couple dates, you may need to use the tamper and/or run it longer to avoid chunks, or even stop it to use a spatula. The E320 can also have such issues, though it seems to me not as much.
I don't cook soup with a blender because there are quieter ways to heat something just as quickly, but this is excellent for blending the ingredients, and it will heat it too if you want.
I haven't tried making flour or nut butters or the like, but I've read reviews by those who have. It does well for flours, and fine for butters with some oil included, which is usual. The instructions say to blend nut butter in one-minute intervals with rest in between. Vitamix gives a similar instruction, to avoid overheating the motor.
Some minor differences
The tampers are designed to use safely while the machines are blending. The Weston tamper has flattish sides, which I think can sometimes work better than the round shape of the Vitamix tamper. As with the Vitamix, you need a couple cups of stuff in the jar to effectively use the tamper. You can blend with less, but you may need to stop the blender and reach in with a spatula. The Blendtecs don't come with tampers, which they say they don't need, though some users disagree.
This has an "emulsion cup" in the lid, a cup with a small hole in it to slowly feed liquid into the blender while it's running, particularly useful when making emulsions like some salad dressings, sauces and mayonnaise. The hole isn't adjustable, so it will work better for some recipes than others. And yes, stuff can come out of the hole too, but that's seldom an issue and easy to stop.
The lid doesn't lock on like on the E320, which can lead to a mess if you aren't careful in some circumstances. I haven't had this problem, but I've seen video and read reports of the lid coming off when doing hot soup, or even cold stuff if the lid has been put on with wet/oily sides. The manual says to use an oven mitt or towel to keep the lid on when heating soup.
This is very loud, like a jet taking off at the high speeds, but it's not as loud as the E320. (That's probably related to power.)
The instructions say the jar isn't dishwasher safe. The Vitamix manual says its jar is OK for the dishwasher, but their website warns it can damage jar components, so I wouldn't use the dishwasher. Similarly, Blendtec says their "dishwasher-safe" jars should be hand washed to extend their life. These powerful blenders are easy to clean by filling them halfway with warm water and a touch of dish soap and turning them on for a minute.
The Weston blades are dull with rounded tips, so no problem with washing around them. Blendtec's are dull too. The Vitamix blades are sharper but not enough to cut you. They're pointy, though, so they will poke you if you're not careful.
The jar had a distinct glue odor inside when I first opened it, but it went away after washing.
As mentioned above, the Weston warranty and the Vitamix and Blendtec warranties differ in what's covered. You pay shipping both ways for this one, while Vitamix and Blendtec pay both. And this only gets covered for manufacturing defects, not also for problems caused by wear from normal home use, which Vitamix and Blendtec do cover.
