The Smoothie Smart Blender delivers on the blending performance people ask for most, instead of piling on a lot of expensive features they don't need. Aside from affordability, what do people want most in a blender? They want to make a perfect smoothie. They expect drinks and pureed mixtures to come out smooth every time. And last but not least, people would like to pour into a glass without making a mess. Until the Smoothie Smart Blender, doing all those things - and doing them well - was a hit-or-miss proposition. Not anymore. The Smoothie Smart Blender prepares a perfect smoothie with the press of a button: Auto Smoothie. This 45-second smart blending cycle is programmed with the precise pulses and speeds needed to get the job done right. At the end of the cycle, the blender shuts off automatically. To create a smooth texture every time, the Smoothie Smart Blender is equipped with the Wave~ Action System patented by Hamilton Beach. During blending, the Wave~ Action System is specifically designed to pull the ingredients down into the blades, so there is no need to stop and stir the mixture. The Smoothie Smart Blender doesn't stop there. Its patented no-mess spout directs contents into the cup instead of dripping down the sides of the jar or all over the kitchen counter. For easy cleanup afterwards, any stickiness on its smooth touchpad is quickly wiped away and its cord stores neatly out of sight.
