Hamilton Beach Milkshake Maker Hamilton Beach drink mixers have been around ever since 1911, and replica models these days reflect the nostalgic Americana of soda fountains, malt shoppes, and jukeboxes playing doo-wop late into the night. Coming across a classic replica Hamilton Beach Milkshake Maker like this one may seem like the real deal. At first.

And at first glance, this Hamilton Beach mixer does have a lot going for it. It's meant to stand on the kitchen counter or mini-bar as part of a retro-inspired decor. The 28-oz. cup will hold any mixed liquid from shakes and malts to protein-infused smoothies. The blender can also be used to whip puddings or scramble eggs.

Unfortunately, when most buyers receive this Milkshake Maker and use it for the first time, buyer's remorse starts to set in. It's not the Hamilton Beach mixer of years gone by. This model is made from plastic parts and is very lightweight. It can wobble when used, so it's hardly professional grade. But on the plus side, even though the exterior isn't very durable, the motor is still powerful enough to work through thick ice creams.

For the price, this Hamilton Beach Milkshake Maker can be a fun piece of kitchen decor that "really works" as it's put to use from time to time. However, if you're seriously interested in a durable drink maker, the better switch is to look for a handheld immersion blender -- like this highly rated model from KitchenAid complete with beverage beaker, whisk, and chopper.
