The Breville 800BLXL Die Cast Hemisphere Blender is equipped with a 1000-watt high-torque motor. The backlit buttons on the blender make it easy to select from variable speed settings, while electronically controlled speed maintains consistent results, even under heavier loads. Choose from blend, smoothie, or ice/auto pulse. The pre-programmed functions have been designed to run for 60 seconds, but can be stopped or re-started at any time. In addition, the Breville 800BLXL Die Cast Hemisphere Blender's innovative Hemisphere system features extra-wide blades that hug the bowl to prevent food from being trapped. Engineered from surgical-grade stainless steel, the serrated blades resist corrosion and maintain sharpness. The blender includes a large capacity 67-ounce polycarbonate jar. The pitcher can go in the dishwasher and the smooth crevice-free die-cast base wipes clean easily.
