A powerful unit that delivers excellent performance at a decent price. The Hamilton Beach 52182 Wavepower blender features a unique system that forces the ingredients down to ensure the silkiest results possible.
Many blenders have a common problem, namely that some of the ingredients get stuck at the top and you have to either shake the unit or stop it and push everything down, towards the blades, to ensure you get a smoothie rather than a “chunky”.
However, the Hamilton Beach 52182 Wavepower blender features a unique system that forces the ingredients down to ensure the silkiest results possible.
The Hamilton Beach 52182 Wavepower blender features a unique system that forces all ingredients towards the blades, to ensure that everything is properly blended for lovely, smooth drinks. This revolutionary system is known as the Wave-Action system.
With this blender, you can be certain you won’t have any nasty, chunky surprises that might choke you when all you are expecting is a smooth drink, something that is not uncommon with many other units.
It also comes with a 56 ounce jar, making it perfect for a large family or simply to blend drinks when you are having a lot of friends over. You can make everything in one go and not have to keep going back to the unit every time someone else wants a drink.
The Hamilton Beach 52182 Wavepower blender also comes with 12 speeds, satisfying everyone’s inner “control freak.” With so many speeds, getting the perfect consistency is a breeze. Add to that the fact that it has a 500 watt motor and there is little that this blender can’t handle. Soft bananas, hard, frozen strawberries or even harder ice?
There’s nothing that this blender won’t be able to deal with, thanks to the amazing stainless steel Ice Sabre blades.
You’ll also be happy to hear that you won’t have to worry about doing the balancing act with the jar, as is the case with many other units, since the Hamilton Beach 52182 Wavepower comes with a jar that has a unique Sure Rest base, ensuring stability on any countertop.
Consumers who purchased this blender have been extremely pleased with its performance, stating that there isn’t much the unit can’t handle. The fact that it has a higher capacity than most standard blenders also works in its favor as one can blend large batches of soups, drinks or sauces at one time, making life much easier.
One consumer stated that they purchased the Hamilton Beach Wavepower blender after seeing it in action at a friend’s home. While the reviewer in question hadn’t yet used it to blend ice, it was the fact that it was able to cut ice into shreds like a hot knife through butter that convinced them this was the perfect unit for their needs.
While there weren’t many complaints, there were some, which appeared to be mainly one-off problems with a defective unit. For example, one consumer had an issue with the acrylic jar cracking only three months after purchase while attempting to make a smoothie.
Since only one person complained of this issue, it is unlikely to be a problem that affects the entire line but more an issue of mishandling, either during use or transport, since a microscopic crack can turn into a large one after a few months of regular usage.
Another consumer complained that the unit was unable to blend broccoli to make cream soup. Again, this is a unique incident and might have something to do with the wrong speed being used rather than a defect with the product, considering that so many other reviewers were able to easily crush ice and other, harder ingredients.
Overall, most consumers were extremely pleased with their purchase and many stated that they would buy the same unit again, if they needed a new blender.
The Hamilton Beach 52182 Wavepower blender is a powerful unit and delivers excellent performance at a decent price, making it ideal for any family kitchen.
