La Reveuse vs Hamilton Beach 51101AV Personal Blender

Overall Verdict

Both blenders falter when it comes to crushing ice—a common limitation among certain personal blenders. However, beyond this shared challenge, the La Reveuse consistently outperformed the Hamilton Beach in all of our tests. 

The Hamilton Beach's streamlined design and budget-friendly price seem attractive at first glance. That said, its 175-watt motor only suffices for soft ingredients and will grapple noticeably with more resilient substances like grains, frozen foods, raw nuts, and dried fruits.

Therefore, if you're in the market for a mid-range personal blender that is capable of preparing green smoothies, lush frozen fruit mixtures, and rich protein shakes, we recommend the La Reveuse. The Hamilton Beach's mediocre performance diminishes its value for money, making its initially appealing price less enticing upon closer scrutiny.
