With 950 Watts of peak power, one-touch programs and 5 speed controls with pulse, you can create creamy smoothies, chop salsas or puree soups with the Hamilton Beach Sound Shield 950. Stainless steel blades make quick work of crushing ice and other tough ingredients. And a hinged, 2-piece sound shield opens and closes over the blender jar to reduce noise. So it’s quiet enough to carry on your party conversation when mixing margaritas, or prepping dinner while the baby naps upstairs. 5 Speeds with Pulse Control the 950 watts of peak power with five different speed settings that range from high to low. A high-speed pulse lets you blend with control for the perfect consistency and to avoid over-processing.
