Breville's revolutionary Hemisphere Bowl and Blade System features central blades to draw down what's on top and wide sweeping blades to hug the bottom of the pitcher. Built to withstand years of use, this multi-tasking workhorse crushs, chops, whips and aerates-allowing you to consistently serve up perfectly blended cocktails, smoothies and velvety soups.

Specially designed contoured pitcher and surgical-grade stainless steel blades create a powerful vortex that produces an exceptionally uniform mixture.
