A blender that’s anything but basic. The large capacity, 5-cup glass jar is dishwasher safe and has been thermal shock tested so you can pull it out of a steamy dishwasher and safely make a frosty cold beverage right away. The stainless steel “ice crusher-Inch blade does just that so you get smooth frozen drinks every time.

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.
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.
