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

In the last few years, the restaurant business has evolved — 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.

How ice changes everything that comes across the bar

The difference between a perfect cocktail and a mediocre one often comes down to ice, which, once melted, can account for half of a drink’s volume.

The Tempest® Blender gets its due respect

The Tempest is finally receiving the attention it deserves. No, not Shakespeare’s incomparable play, which has been justly heralded for centuries, but the hard-working Hamilton Beach Commercial® blender by the same name. The Tempest® Blender is modestly priced for a commercial blender—so much so that it was a top pick on Consumer Reports’ 2013 list of best blenders.

As blogger Stana Peele points out, the Tempest “cannot be compared to other blenders due to its specially designed features.” Here are just a few of those drool-worthy attributes: a 2-speed jump cycle that provides precise and thorough blending every time, a timer with automatic shutoff that lets the user step away and tend to other tasks, patented quad-angle stainless steel cutting and mixing blades, and a temperature gauge that alerts the operator if the blender is starting to overheat.
