Model # 56205. Power cord length 21". Height w/o top spout: 13" with spout: 14.5" Lid presses on and seals fairly well. Jar mouth 5.5" 40 oz jar. 4 blades on one shaft with 2 vertical and 2 horizontal with vertical tips. blade vertical length is 1" or more. 6 buttons: on/off with LED indicator, mix, program smoothie (45 second pulse start automatic program), puree, pulse, and stop. cord can store in base: push in cord. Power: 3.5 Amp. does not indicate watts. watts are misleading anyway.
base Motor housing is not that big appearing and certainly not heavy. but, does it need to be? 3 Year warranty. Made in china. Two wave action molded in jar inserts if you call it that. but it works fine. the blades make the contents swirl and go up and wave action jar makes the contents come back down, over and over. top has pour spout. we don't use it. top Also has a peek a boo flap that you can use to add items as you blend if wanted: about 1" square. Jar has a very generous handle. that's good because jar is heavy and nice and seems well thought out. blender comes packaged well. now to use: we have made a few green smoothies. flax seed, apple slices, almond slices, yogurt, spinich, almond milk, stevia if you want it and not sure what else. pulse a bit to begin. use 4-8 oz of almond or rice or soy milk: at least. after pulse, then you can start the Program, or just blend. use the program a couple times. if you program just once, it's too gritty.we never blend 40 oz of drink; perhaps 20 oz at most. Remember folks: This is not a $500 dollar or more blender. we have never tried those so we don't know how well they blend. also, it's not a juicer. so...you get the pulp. i like the pulp. it's also Simple to clean. we just rinse. we never take the bottom off when we clean. it just causes undue wear and more work. we don't blend eggs or meat ever. just rinse and go. there is another hamilton beach for $60. it says it has more power? not sure. our blender is noisy a bit, but if you put a potholder under the blender when blending, it quiets down alot. remember to have a fresh 20 Amp outlet and 20 Amp rated breaker for your kitchen outlets. that way you know blender is getting full power and not overheating and you're getting the most out of Hamilton Beach's Wave Action. our blender runs cool and gets to business fast. maybe the 60 dollar blender is better? not sure. Our blender only came in black, and we wanted blue or white. oh well... Also, if you are only blending dairy products, ice cream,yogurt,frozen fruit, banana, you can probably get by with a $20 blender. however, that said, this is a nice, very inexpensive beginning blender we are pleased with that can help you make real, nutritious raw food drinks. We hope our review helps you make up your mind.
