about this item

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.

Excellent Smoothie Maker!

The Hamilton Beach Smoothie Smart Blender is an asset to me and my family! First, it is so compact and looks great on my kitchen counter. It is very easy to make a smoothie--just add frozen fruits, ice cubes--whole ones, and 1 banana and it makes an awesome smoothie! It pulses the mixture to brea...  see moreof 's review

    I purchased this exactly for what it is intended...smoothies. I have only used it for this purpose, so I cannot attest to its performance with any other food, or for ice crushing capabilities. I have used it every day without fail for a little over 2 weeks now, and I get a perfect smoothie each and ...  see moreof Busy Mommy in MI's review

      I own a Cuisinart Blender, and I find that it doesn't make smoothies as well as the Smart Blender. Believe me, I was shocked! My Cuisinart costs several hundred dollars! I really like the Smart Blender's automatic one touch auto-smoothie button. I don't have to second guess if I am pulsing or liqui...  see moreof Cosette's review

        i've tried every handheld version out there and many blenders trying to find the perfect smoothie maker. This unit works the best yet. i love the auto feature, so I can dump all my ingredients in, [.........] and when i'm ready to go, its ready to be poured, no more standing there waiting for it to ...  see moreof Kellie's review

          This unit worked great at first, strong, although NOISY, and chopped frozen stuff well. The lid is tough to pull on and off but the pour spout worked nicely. And didn't create an air bubble around the blades like my old machine did when blending thick drinks. So I didn't have to keep pulsing and s...  see moreof Chad's review

            Does Not Blend Ice/Frozen Fruit

            Haven5 years ago
            This seemed like the perfect solution for someone like me who just wants to make a quick smoothie in the afternoon. However, this blender cannot handle frozen ingredients, including ice. I tried about 10x to let it run a cycle, stir, run a cycle, stir, and it NEVER blended my smoothie. Complete wast...  see moreof Haven's review

              I brought this blender because it said it was a Smart Smoothie Maker and I was about to start my diet so I figured it wild be great in teh mornings. Well, I am not sure which was dumber me for believing the lie or Hamilton Beach for telling the lie. This thing wouldn't even blend my fruit. I had a...  see moreof James's review

                I purchased this blender and have never been more disappointed with a product than this one. The first two that I purchased were broken due to a poor packing design that smashes the pitcher against the cheap plastic base without any padding inbetween. When I finally found a non-broken one, the mot...  see moreof bridget's review
