Hamilton 50242N WaveMaker Blender

Rating: 4 out of 5
  • Currently 4.0/5.0

For me, the selling point of the Hamilton WaveMaker blender is that instead of a flimsy plastic jug, it has a solid glass easy-clean container. Plastic often cracks, but the glass jar with the Hamilton feels perfectly solid and durable, and is completely dishwasher safe too. The entire appliance looks good, with a black base that is 'counter-stable', meaning that it won't rock or vibrate any work surface you place it on.
The Hamilton is actually very quiet, despite a 450 watt motor that powers the blades, possibly because the glass absorbs a lot of the sound. Dimensions of 11 x 8 x 13 inches make it a suitable size to fit in the kitchen. It uses a 'Wave Action System', which supposedly pulls the mixture that you're blending down the blades to be mixed in the base of the jar instead of rising up to where there isn't any action, but having used blenders before, I haven't seen anything dramatically unique in the way that the Hamilton blends. However, it's powerful enough to work through almost any food type that I've used it with, including ice that I need crushed.
For a price of $39.99, the Hamilton blender is very good value for money as it can cope with most food consistencies without struggling or failing to blend completely. The glass container really sets it apart from other blenders of the same price and the base looks much less plastic than most kitchen tools, especially in the black finish. The only problem that the Hamilton blender has is that the power cord should be nearly twice the length that it is, as it's often difficult to stretch to a power outlet when you have multiple kitchen tools competing for the same space.
