Breville® Black Hemisphere® Blender
Innovative Hemisphere technology and extra-wide stainless-steel blades deliver commercial-quality precision blending, while the signature vortex action, five speeds, and preprogrammed and pulse settings create uniform blends in record time. Easy-to-clean touchpad controls and a dishwasher-safe pitcher make cleanup a breeze.
Cook’s Illustrated said of the Hemisphere Control Blender: “With a curved jar, six well-configured blades, and a relatively powerful motor, this blender excelled at every task—and at less than half the cost of the co-winner.”

John O’Brien (Bill’s son) quickly became passionate about the growing small-appliance business, founding the Breville Research and Development center in 1972. Two years later, the world’s first scissor-action sandwich maker was invented, selling 400,000 units in its first year—one of the most successful product launches in Australian history.
Today, from New Zealand to the UK, toasted sandwiches are still affectionately called ‘Brevilles,’ so much so that the term has been added to the Australian dictionary. The sandwich maker’s success was soon followed by the iconic ‘Kitchen Wizz’ food processor, together with a range of high-performance, time-saving appliances such as blenders, dairy bars, yogurt makers and waffle irons. By the early ‘80s, Breville had established an office in Hong Kong, and was exporting its innovations to 15 countries.
During the ‘90s, Breville’s hometown of Sydney became one of the world’s most multicultural cities, with a craving for fresh, healthy foods and a taste for Mediterranean and Asian cuisine. Breville’s revolutionary innovations, such as the high-wall heating electric wok, the health grill, panini press and award-winning Juice Fountain and espresso machines, brought Sydney’s café culture to millions of homes around the world. In 2001, Breville’s merger with Australian kitchenware company HWI helped support the expansion of Breville’s Centre of Design.
