Optimum Performance + Super Speed: Meet the Summit® Edge High-Performance Blender

10:15 AM on February 19, 2024

In the last few years, the restaurant business has evolvedHBH855-49 — and so has our signature high-performance blender. The Summit® Edge High-Performance Blender, the newest addition to the Hamilton Beach Commercial beverage blender line, is more powerful, more versatile, and even easier to operate.

We invested four years in designing and engineering the new Summit Edge, then put it through rigorous testing in the field and in our lab. The result is a commercial blender you can count on to make drinks consistently creamy and customers consistently delighted.

More power to blend your toughest ingredients

As customers’ tastes have become more complex, so has the process of blending smoothies, smoothie bowls and specialized coffee drinks to perfection. Powders. Supplements. Nuts and seeds. Açai. Frozen fruits. Fibrous greens like kale and spinach. All these ingredients can be challenging to blend for consistent results. And if you ever see your staff tamping down unblended ingredients, manually stirring the mixture, or running multiple cycles, that means it’s time to upgrade your blender.

The Summit Edge features PowerBlend technology: a 3.5 peak* HP motor, lifetime-warranty blade, and a precisely engineered jar to make quick work of even those ingredients that are toughest to blend. And with one-touch Auto Blend, the Summit Edge doesn’t need babysitting.

A simpler interface to minimize user effort

Remember when every new employee would undergo lengthy training on your commercial kitchen equipment, including a detailed explanation of every machine’s quirks?

In today’s high-turnover labor market, restaurant operators don’t have time for that. That’s why we made the Summit Edge so simple to use, with intuitive controls that feel instantly familiar. It features:

  • An LCD screen with 11 display languages for ease of use worldwide
  • Capacitive touch display to prevent water ingress
  • 6 programmable buttons, plus variable speeds and pulse, that light up when they’re ready to use
  • Auto Blend for one-touch blending to a perfect consistency
  • 36 blending programs, including frothing cycles (with frothing jar) to make cold foam or whipped cream
  • A USB port for custom program upload

The Summit Edge also includes an innovative safety feature: It only operates when the jar is in place and the QuietShield closed. (This feature can be disabled, if desired, on the 120 V model.) This prevents damage to the clutch.

A redesigned blender jar to speed service

The secret to high-performance blending isn’t just the motor; it’s the jar. The Summit Edge’s 48 oz. / 1.4 L jar is designed for rapid blending and continuous use. It’s made from durable, BPA-free copolyester for long life, and it’s stackable to save precious counter space. Instead of simply printing measurements on the jar, as competitors do, we laser-etch them in black for long wear. The result is a blender jar that maintains its integrity in high-volume environments.

Advanced sound dampening to keep the peace

The more powerful a commercial blender, the louder it is — right? The Summit Edge proves that adage wrong. No matter what you throw in the jar, the Summit Edge keeps noise levels down, preserving ambiance and ensuring your employees can hear customers’ orders. You can thank advanced QuietBlend technology: a double-wall motor base that redirects airflow to reduce sound and the copolyester QuietShield for efficient sound reduction. Click the QuietShield into place at the beginning of the day and simply unclick it for cleaning at shift’s end.

Industry-leading quality for years of service

The Hamilton Beach Commercial brand is synonymous with durability, and the Summit Edge is built to last. Pick it up and you’ll feel the quality: at 32 lbs./14.5 kg, the Summit Edge is no lightweight. It’s backed by equally heavy-duty warranties and guarantees:

  • 3-year parts and labor warranty
  • 3-year Global Care warranty (outside of the continental United States), which includes training and 24/7/365 support.
  • 2-year Express Care warranty (U.S. only), which provides replacement equipment when needed — free of charge — so kitchen operations can continue while your blender’s being repaired.
  • Lifetime warranty on the stainless steel blade
  • NSF certification, which indicates that the Summit Edge meets the highest safety and sanitation standards.
