No need to worry about waking up the house ¿ or the neighborhood ¿ for that 6:00 a.m. smoothie. The Hamilton Beach Blender with Quiet Blend technology is designed to reduce noise from the four different areas of a traditional blender. A hinged, 2-piece sound shield opens and closes over the 52 oz. MultiBlend glass jar. The base is designed to fit both the included 52 oz. glass jar and the 20 oz. travel jar, giving you the flexibility to blend for one or the whole family. With 950 watts of power, 5 speeds and three programmed settings, including smoothie, you can do everything from mix salsas to puree soups. Stainless steel blades make quick work of crushing ice, and the drip-free pour spout means no more smoothie running down the side of the jar or all over your kitchen counter.
