I bought this blender a few months ago as my first blender because I wanted to start making smoothies. It's a good size and the various speeds are great. It's very loud, as to be expected, but it gets the job done. I've been blending milk, apples, spinach, kale, mangos, blueberries, and even flaxseed. I was skeptical to put ice in a blender that's on the cheap side because I was afraid it wouldn't be able to handle it, but I haven't had any problems using ice so far. If you use all of the speeds (ice crush, blend, smooth, etc.), your drink will come out smooth and delicious without any annoying large chunks. The only thing I had some trouble with was blending apples into my smoothie. The apple chunks got caught underneath the blades, which are tiny, and I had a hard time pulling them out. They got the blades stuck so they wouldn't move. I had cut the apple up into about 25 pieces so they weren't very large chunks, but they'll still get stuck under the blades, so make sure you put anything like that on the top of your mixture away from the blades at first. Otherwise, I have loved and enjoyed this blender! I'd recommend it to anyone looking for an affordable product to create simple smoothies.

Blending Power
I wish the blades were a little bigger, but with small products like blueberries or kale, there are no problems.

Ease of Cleaning
Be careful not to cut yourself if you're cleaning underneath the blades, but it's pretty simple to clean!

This blender is reasonably versatile with varying speeds adapted for coarse grinding, fine grinding, coarse chopping as well as pureeing spices and foods. However, the heavy jar is a challenge unto itself, especially when handling a full jar of blended food. The base of the jar which supports the blade is flimsy compared to the overall strength of the blender...the base cracked and started leaking in mine. Also, make absolutely sure to place the blender on a flat, level surface while in action...this prevent uneven wearing of the blade and motor contact points. Cleaning the blender is a snap right after use, if, however, you let the food dry and harden, the jar is a pain to clean. It is a pity that retailers do not sell replacement parts for this blender, so once one of the components is broken the rest of the ensemble just has to be tossed. A minor disappointment with this blender was the length of the power cord. My kitchen is rather compact and I have to stack appliances one on top of the other. A power cord half a foot longer would have been immensely helpful for me. Last but not the least, be very mindful of the fill line, if you overfill this powerful blender, be prepared for little gushes of food leaking between the jar and lid while the blender processes food.

    Comments about Hamilton Beach Aguas Frescas 10 Speed Blender:

    Great blender. Multiple speeds for different ways to blend different things. Works great for crushing ice or just making a smoothie. There are multiple levels to blend or chop on. The blender and everything is fairly easy to clean. Notion comes apart easily and quick. Blade is sharp and does a great job and slicing and dicing. Quick cleanup and fairly little mess blender lid sits tight and doesn't allow anything to spew out or leak. Currently own 2 of these blenders that's how great it is. Would recommend to anyone who is looking for an effective blender to do the job well. Features are all great.

    Comments about Hamilton Beach Aguas Frescas 10 Speed Blender:

    We recently had to replace a high end blender that we had received for our wedding years ago, because it had broken. Not wanting to spend a ton of money and figuring "a blender's a blender" ... we picked up the Hamilton Beach Aguas Frescas 10 Speed Blender at Walmart.

    Poor choice on our part. Our old blender could also double as a food processor and chop up harder objects (such as almonds or other nuts) - the Hamilton Beach Aguas Frescas 10 Speed Blender works well for smoothies, but that is about it.

    There's also a TINY plastic/rubber ring, that needs to be around the bottom part of the blender or your smoothie (or other blended substance) will be ALL OVER THE COUNTER. Be advised, this plastic ring is EXTREMELY easy to lose in the dishwasher. But make sure it's on there ... or you will have one heck of a mess.

    Decent blender for the price, all in all, but don't expect the performance of a high end blender.

    Easy to use Blender

    Comments about Hamilton Beach Aguas Frescas 10 Speed Blender:

    I received this blender as as gift about six months ago. I have used it to make smoothies, margaritas, purees and milkshakes. It is very easy to use and also easy to clean. The bottom comes apart completely for a very efficient clean up. There are several different speeds typical of a blender - pulse, chop, blend. Makes a very good smoothie. I would recommend this blender to anyone it is easy to use, convenient to clean and store, and its not very expensive.

    Blending Power
    It does take a little bit longer to get ice to chop down to size for margaritas. It does blend very well and is excellent for smoothies. Chops fruit up very easily.

    Ease of Cleaning
    Extremely easy to clean. The bottom comes apart easily with a twist exposing a part with the blades and a rubber ring.

    Ease of Use
    Very self explanatory. Works just like a typical blender.

    Durability
    It is made of thick glass. I have dropped once and it did not break or chip at all.

    Comments about Hamilton Beach Aguas Frescas 10 Speed Blender:

    This was one of the first blenders I ever purchased out on my own. It did a great job for basic needs. It did its job when making smoothies, or any kind of other blended drink. However, the longer I had this blender, the less it did its job. After using it about ten times, it began having trouble blending certain things. For instance, when blending smoothies I sometimes use ice cubes. It began having trouble blending these. So at first I thought it was the size of the cubes so I broke them up a little before putting them in to be crushed. Still it hard trouble blending the ice. Then I noticed it started to have trouble blending frozen fruits, especially strawberry's. So before using frozen strawberry's I had to either cut them in half or let them thaw some before use. All in all, this is a nice blender for what it's usually priced. If you want it for just the simplest things, its worth it. However, if you frequently use your blender, so a multitude of different uses, I would look to a higher end blender.

    Comments about Hamilton Beach Aguas Frescas 10 Speed Blender:

    This Hamilton Beach blender is by far one of the best blenders I have ever owned. Not only is it able to do so many jobs such as dicing and blending it's also not too expensive, which is great for anyone on a budget.

    Blending Power
    This blender really doesn't lose power and the blades seem to stay sharp even after being used over a long period of time.

    Versatility
    The Hamilton Beach blender can mix or chop or puree almost anything that you put into it which makes it an amazing all-purpose kitchen tool, especially for new homeowners.

    Ease of Cleaning
    The blender comes apart quite easily and the pieces are easily washable and replace back into the blender with no problem. For simple cleaning just stick the non mechanical pieces on the top rack of your dishwasher.

    Ease of Use
    The blender is practically idiot-proof.

    Design
    The design is extremely sleek and is the most amazing one available but for the price it really is a nice looking addition to the kitchen.

    Durability
    The blender seems like it will hold up for some time.

    Works great, but be sure not to put too much ice in. It will overflow.Great for smoothies and milkshakes. Frozen coffee isn't too bad either. Works well for the cost. Not recommended for chopping or mixing. Design is decent, nothing fancy. A little difficult to clean.

    Comments about Hamilton Beach Aguas Frescas 10 Speed Blender:

    It works well, it has 10 different speeds and you can use them as you need to. It works well with cold and hot liquids alike. I have used it to blend soups and to make baby food and to make smoothies. It is an all purpose blender. It comes from a good manufacturer that I trust. It has a thick glass blender top and it is not top heavy the base is stable as well. It is heavy but that is only because it is well made. It is easily cleaned because you can put the top pieces in the dishwasher. The lid stays in place and it doesn't spill or leak if the lid is on right. It has a good seal on the plastic lid. You do not have to lock it in place it sits in one position. The speeds are good and the blades are sharp. I have put ice cubes in it and it chops them without a problem.

    Blending Power
    It makes smoothies made with ice cubes without a problem. It blends smooth foods as well.

    Versatility
    It can go from puree to blend and crush without a problem

    Ease of Cleaning
    you can put both of the top pieces in the dishwasher

    Ease of Use
    it is self explanatory by the speeds on the blender and they do what they say like blend, puree, etc

    Design
    easy to use and easy to clean what more could you ask for, it has a simple design

    Durability
    It is sturdy and heavy so it won't knock over
