Hamilton Beach Commercial Appliances

Vendor Spotlight: Hamilton Beach

Hamilton Beach appliances are a fixture in households across the country. Hamilton Beach Commercial, the company’s global commercial brand, is highly regarded for their continuous innovations in food and bar blenders, juicers, warmers and cookers, and other product lines. Their durable products can be seen in hotels, restaurants and bars worldwide. Founded in the early 1900s by Louis H. Hamilton and Chester Beach, Hamilton Beach is now celebrating more than a century of leading the way in commercial appliance technology.

Beach’s creation of a universal electric motor that operated on both alternating and direct currents was a game changer. At the time, this new technology was used to power sewing machines and other attachments, thereby ending the era of treadle sewing machines and other muscle-powered chores. Building momentum from this early success, Hamilton and Beach were able to pioneer their way to others, marketing many new innovations, like electric fans, glass washers and vacuum cleaners, under their Hamilton Beach name.

Hamilton Beach Drink Mixers

Perhaps one of the greatest Hamilton Beach staples is the electric drink mixer. First created in 1911, their original drink mixer created quite the sensation, quickly mixing up malts for customers across America. As the twentieth century progressed, one could hardly step inside any soda fountain or ice cream parlor without spotting a Hamilton Beach mixer. And even though times change and technology advances, even though soda fountains have since faded into nostalgia, one can still spot Hamilton Beach blenders and mixers at nearly any restaurant bar or establishment serving up smoothies or ice cream treats.

Hamilton Beach’s HMD400 Three Spindle Drink Mixer is one of their most popular mixers on the market because it mixes nearly twice as fast as other three spindle mixers with an automatic start/stop operation.

Hamilton Beach Bar Blenders

In addition to mixers, Hamilton Beach’s line of commercial bar blenders range from light duty to high performance, depending on intended use. The popular Hamilton Beach HBB908 Light Duty Bar Blender is one of their most economical blenders enabling smaller establishments to add high profit frozen drinks to their menu at a low upfront cost.

It’s not, however, ideal for bars with high volume.  The Hamilton Beach HBH550 three-horsepower Fury high performance bar blender is. This model features an all-metal drive coupling that’s built to last.

Coming back to Central’s catalog is the Hamilton Beach HBS1400 Revolution Ice Shaver and Blender. This model offers precise ice portion control and can make up to four 16 oz. drinks at a time. One of the main features of this model is the sensor technology that alerts the users to ensure the hopper lid is in place or if the drain line is full. The double-wall hopper minimizes noise while keeping ice solid.
