A blender that’s anything but basic.

The stainless steel “ice crusher-Inch blade does just that so you get smooth frozen drinks every time.

No cracks or chips from the glass vessel when I opened the blender's packaging, but there was a smudge of an oily substance on the outside of the vessel. Also, the blades of the blender seemed to be bent strangely (my previous blender's tines weren't off centre like this, but maybe this is intentional for more thorough blending?) I will update this review after a few more uses, but the smoothie setting seemed to be decently smooth on low, although there were still chunks of frozen blueberry that refused to be blended.

I have been using this since I bought it until today. Did not count how long but surely over one year. Very solid! i am using it everyday and still using it. in good condition. just make sure you take off the blades to wash once every couple of weeks to make sure it is cleaned under the blade as well. other than that, very convenient stuff.

This is a 450 watts (MAX) blender falsely advertised as 700 watts. « 700 Osterizing watts of power » actually means that Oster believe that it can perform as a 700 watt in normal blending cycles. It also means that compare to a true 700W blender, the electric motor is more likely to over heat (thus the bad smell reported in some reviews and my observation as well) and it won't last as long. As for the quality... well, got an unleveled base. I'm pretty sure it should be considered as hazardous material under Amazon's policies!

This is a very well built blender. The glass container is much more durable than a plastic one, which would eventually cloud up from all of the scratching going on inside. This was definitely worth the purchase!

Loud. If not for the high setting I don't know that this thing could handle my smoothies. High setting = house shaking. Would give this a lower rating but for $25 what can you expect. You def get bang for your buck but set your expectation level appropriately.

Hey, but it probably does:-) To a real review: I blend everyday frozen fruit and veggies consisting of carrots, broccoli, cauliflower, kale, spinach, beets + greens, cabbage, cilantro, parsley, raspberries, strawberries, blueberries and sometimes a frozen banana then non-frozen apple, ginger, lemon jam packed to the top of this 6 cup mixing jar. I like that this unit is whisper quiet on (low) and takes about a minute and a half to fully blend to my liking which is not super watery, pulpy, but mixed well. Another thing I LOVE is its easy to clean. No seeds or anything get stuck down near the blades like my other blender where it had a gap so every week I would need to use a special brush to clean the icky's out. This blender wins as most hygienic. Another plus is the lid fits on easily, no fussing trying to press the damn thing on like my old one. Now for the gripes. Yes, I blend on (low) speed, and the motor sounds like it's struggling until 60 seconds have gone by -- then it starts to even out with a more consistent grrr sound (which is why I don't blend on HIGH) I don't think this motor is capable of HIGH speed -- I have not tried, I just go by other reviews where people say there's died on them quickly. Gripe #2 If You don't place the jar in the correct spot on the units base, it will spin and loosen the blade unit and create a BIG mess (spill). I learned my lesson the first time the hard way and now always place the jar to the right of the two stubby things on the base to prevent this disaster. Not sure why they made it this way, every other blender I've used you just throw it on the base and press PLAY so make sure to remember the motor rotation is counter clockwise and to always place the jar nibs to the right of the two stubby things on the base.Read more ›

OK so this blender is cheap. I needed to replace my old 10-speed 450 watt Oster blender with a plastic container that cracked. I've been looking for a more powerful blender and when I saw this had "700 Osterizing watts" I thought, GREAT... more power than my old 450 watt blender. My other choice was a 750 watt blender from another vendor which was more expensive. I figured maybe Oster was less expensive because it was a no-frills blender with good power-- looking at expensive blenders, they had all kinds of features I do not need.

Guess what... I get this blender and turn it over. The base says "450 watts max". Yep, it's the same power as my old one. So I read the box. There are asterisks beside "700 Osterizing watts" that say it is "their measure" of the blending power. So... they just made it up???? They reinterpreted a completely objective and scientific measurement of watts into their own new self-serving form of measurement?

Note how (as of when I wrote this) Amazon does NOT provide that key information!!! They just reprint the 700 watts power.

This is totally misleading advertising and I am frankly really annoyed. 250 watts is a HUGE difference! It represents 55% more power!

Shame on Amazon and shame on Oster. For heaven's sake, be honest with us and let us make informed decisions.

Me and my partner moved from the UK in September and because of differences in voltages had to part with our beloved KitchenAid blender. For months we went without and as summer rolled around we started spending a fortune on smoothies at juice bars, so resolved to pick up a sub-$100 blender. Reviews all sucked, then saw this at $25.

Whilst the thing isn't the status symbol a KitchenAid is (it's ugly, but okay) it does a better job! The old blender would often leave big chunks of fruit that got caught under the blades, whereas this has a conical shaped jug funneling the contents down to the very sharp blades. As others said it crushes ice extremely well and even has a glass jar, unlike the Vitamix.

The only thing I doesn't tackle is seeds from the likes of blackberries and the buttons and base feel cheap and plasticy. But that's to be expected at the price and at four or five blends in, I'm very impressed. I just hope it's as reliable as the KitchenAid.
