#3. Hamilton Beach 730C Classic DrinkMaster Drink Mixer ($40 @ Amazon.com)
First off, it’s inexpensive. Second, it’s got a cool retro look. So far as a drink mixer goes, those are two big plusses. Whether you’re making milkshakes, malts, smoothies, or boozing it up with some alcoholic slushies, the 28-ounce stainless steel cup makes plenty. The DrinkMaster has two speeds, detaches easily for quick cleaning, and comes with a two-year warranty.
#4. Blendtec Total Blender ($360 @ Amazon.com)
A digital touchpad, six pre-programmed blending cycles (including an automatic shutoff), and built to fit into your cabinets for easy storage, the Blendtec Total Blender is a quality all-in-one blender option that’s perfect for making breads, sauces, soups, or juices. Two more perks: it comes with a seven-year warranty and a recipe book with 230 recipes.
