I bought this upgrade to replace my $** Mr. Coffee from *******, so my review may not hold much weight. Despite this, I never thought coffee could taste this good! For years I've been brewing away on my trusty little cheapo coffee maker from the college days and I never thought to replace it until someone suggested it. The coffee that this machine produced just tasted 1. A lot smoother and 2. A lot more flavorful. A simple push of a button and a few minutes later I have enough coffee to last me an entire morning. It's easy to clean and is an attractive small appliance to look at in the kitchen with its brushed stainless steel appearance. I definitely have no regrets purchasing this product and the expert reviews that I've read were not wrong at all.
Well, I have had and heavily used the 12-speed Oster blender for years--same look, classy brushed nickel. Well, today, I over burdened my favorite kitchen utensil making a rather thick pesto--had the pitcher practically full...the started smelling something other than the aromatic delight of basil, garlic and olive oil being blended--yes, it was the motor smoking from being bogged down. When my old buddy burned out and gave up the ghost, I was totally bummed to bid a sad farewell. I mean, I use this all the time, my go to appliance. On a whim, I Googled Oster, and lo and behold, they still make the exact blender, same retro look, same Oster dependability, and I can even interchange the old accessories if necessary down the road. Not to mention there just happened to be a 30% discount and so I got it at an amazing price. You can't beat Oster--sheik metal base, glass pitcher, blender blades you could shave with (watch your fingers when cleaning), oh and did I mention 30% discount! So, while I bid a sad farewell to my old friend, I await a joyous reunion with it's exact twin! (I just ordered the replacement) I'm much relieved and only hope the new one is up to the same Oster standards as the old one.
Got this for my mom for her birthday, it has to be the greatest appliance ever with the extent of things it can do. we've only had it for about a month but we plan on getting most of the attachment so we can get rid of some older appliances.
