Hamilton Beach sent me the Hamilton Beach Sound Shield 950 blender to try out and review. The 950 has five-speed increments for multipurpose blending. Preprogrammed options include Ice Crush, Puree and Smoothie. The Smoothie function worked beautifully for my Turmeric Smoothie this morning. This blender has a sound shield making it quieter that the typical blender we are accustomed to. Hamilton Beach claims that the Sound Shield 950 is 55% quieter than a traditional blender. I did find it somewhat quieter than other blenders I have used. The sound was definitely softer because of the shield surrounding the multi blend jar. Stainless steel blades crush ice and the 950 watt peak power motor provides the power behind the Sound Shield 950 blender.
Hamilton Beach sent me my Sound Shield 950 to review and will send one lucky Swirls follower their own Hamilton Beach Sound Shield 950 too! Simply leave a comment below or on any Swirls' social media platforms featuring the Turmeric Smoothie and you could be randomly selected as the lucky winner of the Hamilton Beach Sound Shield 950 Giveaway! Good luck! #Hamiltonbeach
Disclosure: I received the Sound Shield 950 from Hamilton Beach for purposes of reviewing. All opinions are my own. This giveaway is sponsored by Hamilton Beach and I am a Brand Ambassador for Hamilton Beach.
