Wave Station Express Dispensing Blender

Okay, let me state first that this is not endorsed in any way. A couple of months ago, I decided I was tired of flavorless protein shakes, or flavored ones where I couldn't pronounce the ingredients and contained a ridiculous number of calories. 

So as usual, I went on Amazon (Yes, this is the answer to all my problems. Or is it the reason for my problems? Hmmm...). I initially thought I could just buy a regular blender and just maybe add a little flavor to some of the bland protein shakes. But in my search, I found this magical - but very affordable - product: The Wave Station Express Dispensing Blender by Hamilton Beach.

Let me tell you some positive things about it:
  • It has 4 speeds and a pulse setting, including the Regular speed, Juicer, Smoothie, and Milkshake. This means you can use it for all sorts of things!
  • It has a dispenser (like a little tap), so you can blend, dispense, and not create a whole mess.
  • It looks cute :)
  • The power is actually pretty good, which I did not expect. It crushes ice well (if you want to make a smoothie), but also blends anything from carrots to bananas very well.
  • You get a 3 year warranty
  • It is dishwasher safe
  • If you don't want the dispenser, they also provide a cap option to just close off that space. Isn't that thoughtful?
What's the negative, you ask? Well, they are very few:
  • It doesn't look super-professional. The base is made of plastic so it isn't super-glossy.
  • The dispenser can be difficult to clean if you are not using a dishwasher. 
  • It is not a particularly small blender so it does take up some space.
  • The blender top does not fit tightly, so if you do decide not to use the dispenser, make sure you hold on to the top as you pour.
You should totally get it if you are looking for an easy way to get your fruit and veggies in, or make a great protein shake. Here is it on Amazon and on Walmart.

Cheers Eights & Weights!
