Hamilton Beach Commercial’s Expeditor HBF1100S food blender is now available from FEM. With a 4litre capacity, the HBF1100S is designed to be suitable for high volume blending.
The blender features a heavy-duty 3.5hp motor, which drives custom-designed stainless steel blades to chop, grind, blend, puree and emulsify large quantities swiftly.
Touchpad controls and the variable speed dial are said to give control over the blending process, while custom programme and preset timer buttons should allow consistency. Re-programming is claimed to be simple too – operators have to insert a memory card when there are any menu changes.
The blender also features a ‘chop’ function which pulses the blades to keep thick mixtures, such as hummus, salsas and green smoothies, moving inside the blender jar for a super smooth finish.
The HBF1100S comes with a heavy-duty brushed stainless steel 4litre container, dosing cup and a transparent lid, which is claimed to allow users to easily see into the blender container during the blend cycle, for precise control over texture and consistency.
Designed with safety in mind, the lid interlock should ensure the blender won’t start until the jar and lid are securely in place. The blender’s over-moulded comfort handles on the jar sides and low profile design increase ergonomics. To monitor and prevent overheating, the blender features a temperature gauge, and the weighted, die-cast aluminium base with non-skid feet is claimed to improve the unit’s stability.
The HBF1100S is backed with a lifetime warranty on motor drive coupling and stainless steel blades. It measures 227mm (w) x 378mm (d) x 481mm (h) and is available for a list price of £2,130 (+VAT).
