Hi Guys, today I’m reviewing the Breville Hemisphere Control Blender. LINK to Breville Hemisphere Control Blender: http://amzn.to/2bBp10l It’s 750 watts and has 5 speed settings and a pulse button. This unit comes with the Die-cast metal base. 48 ounce BPA free plastic round jug with stainless steel blades. Assist lid with inner measuring lid so you can add ingredients while blending and Instruction manual with some recipes and blending guide for different foods.
The LCD display counts up on speed settings and counts down on the pre- programmed settings. The buttons are illuminated. The Breville assist plug is a nice feature, really thoughtful design. There is cord storage on the bottom.
Let’s test the blender. Plug it in. Press the on/off button to turn the unit on. The button will illuminate and flash. The LCD timer screen will light up and display 00. We’ll crush ice first. This is one standard tray of ice cubes which is the maximum you can process in this blender at a time. We’ll use the pre-programmed ice crush setting. After you choose a speed, the blender will run for 60 seconds and automatically shut off. You can stop the blender at any time by pressing the stop button or the selected speed button. You can also change the speed by pressing another button while blending. Next we’ll make a fruit smoothie with frozen fruit, milk and a little honey. There is a max line on the jug, don’t fill above that line. If you fill it near that line, put your hand on the lid while blending so the lid doesn’t come off. Use the pre-programmed smoothie setting. The timer will count down to 0. The pulse button is similar to using a food processor.
Next we’ll make a vegetable smoothie with kale, carrots and cucumbers. We’ll pulse a few times then blend.
The ring pull design makes it easy to remove the lid. If the motor is overloaded, an overload warning icon on the LCD will flash. Once it stops flashing, the unit has cooled down and is ready to use.
When you’re finished with the blender, turn the on/off button to off and unplug.
You cannot blend hot liquids in this blender, no making dough or mashed potatoes. The jug is dishwasher safe and the lid is top rack dishwasher safe. I always hand wash blenders right after use, it’s just so much easier – all it takes is a quick rinse. Wipe the base with a damp cloth and dry.
