Ice floats. Kiwi fruit doesn’t. How do you pull down what’s on top, while whipping up what’s below?
Why the Breville Hemisphere Control Blender?
Every Breville product begins with a simple moment of brilliance. The Breville Hemisphere Control began with the observation that some blending ingredients float—and others don’t. How do you pull down what’s on top, while whipping up what’s below? Other blenders often blend unevenly, over-processing some ingredients and leaving lumps of others. The Breville Hemisphere Control Blender solves this problem with its innovative hemisphere blade system.
This is how the Breville Hemisphere Control stands apart: no matter what you put in it, it can consistently and evenly whip up the perfect blend.
The Breville BBL605XL Hemisphere Control Blender is both a fun and efficient addition to any busy kitchen. A chef with smoothies, sauces, and delicious mixed drinks in mind will love the flexibility and control that the Breville Hemisphere Control blender offers. This blender is a top of the line blending and mixing appliance with the added benefit of illuminated buttons and a LED counter that gives you precise control of every single dish that you create. The Breville Hemisphere Controls actually pulls all mixtures from the top of the blending carafe to the blades with powerful RPM speed that makes this blender a cut above the rest.

Even blending, every time
Declared one of the best blenders of 2012 by a leading rater of kitchen products, the Breville Hemisphere Control uses an innovative design: extra wide stainless steel blades are contoured to sweep along the base of the jug and push ingredients up while central blades pull ingredients down.
It’s no wonder this blender has been called the best of 2012: this sleek design minimizes food traps and eliminates the need to dig ingredients out from under the blades or mix up ingredients by hand. Five speeds (including snow, mix, blend, liquefy, and puree) are supplemented by pulse, ice crush, and smoothie buttons. These buttons are preprogrammed with varying speeds—alternating pulsing and blending—to move ingredients through the jug, so you don’t have to move ingredients around manually.
Lumps have nowhere to hide. Unlike other blades, which trap pockets of ingredients under the blades (diagram a), the Hemisphere blade sweeps along the base of the bowl and pushes ingredients on the bottom to the top (diagram b). Central blades are designed to pull the ingredients on the top down to the bottom, creating a perfectly blended mixture.
The Hemisphere Control combines the functionality of a powerful blender with some food processing tasks. It crushes and chops to turn ice into snow for velvety cocktails and also folds and aerates for creamy smoothies and soups. In addition, thanks to its innovative blade design and high torque motor, the Hemisphere Control can handle blending tasks more efficiently and with less noise.
Designed with the consumer in mind
The Hemisphere Control blender is both easy to use and easy to clean. An LCD timer, 5 different speeds and three additional task functions make creating the perfect blend as easy as pushing one button. The permanent blade system is a snap to clean: just put in a drop of detergent and blend with water to remove food remnants, and then put the entire jug in the dishwasher. In addition, it is constructed from the highest quality materials. Heavy duty blades are made of engineered surgical grade stainless steel that ensures the blades stay sharp for longer, while the sturdy base is made from die-cast stainless steel.
