I've used this blender daily for about a week now. When I first unpackaged the product, I thought it was sleek with a retro vibe. I was very pleased with the glass jar. All blender parts can be put in the dishwasher. However, the (separate) manual for the food processor is lacking and from what I gather, the food processor parts are hand wash only. The food processor jar is extremely thin, light weight clear plastic. I do not expect the food processor jar to hold up long term. It's too bad that they didn't use glass or a thicker plastic for the food processor attachment. When using the food processor, the handle keeps rotating. I find it odd that the handle does not lock into place. I've consulted the manual several times but I don't see where this is addressed. Also, the base of the food processor twists on and off easily. I had to be very careful not to make a mess when picking it up from the blender so that the base wouldn't become detached and create a mess. I wish that the base had a better locking mechanism. The "Off" button also doubles as a pulse button. There are two speed settings, low and high, which can be used in conjunction with 7 speed settings. The box states that there are 16 speed settings but they are counting "Off" as a speed and "Ice crush" twice. Really there are only 14 speed settings. The motor is surprisingly powerful. I had no problems crushing ice, dicing produce, or making hummus and smoothies. In conclusion, The Oster Precise Blend Blender Plus Food Chopper is a convenient, easy to use multifunction appliance. I like the prospect of the Food Processor attachment but I feel that it's not durable enough to hold up long term and that there are several design flaws. However, the blender attachment and the motor should last for years to come. I received the Oster Precise Blend Blender Plus Food Chopper in exchange for my honest review.
I recieved this personal blender to try for free. My first impression was how well made the whole blender and bottle was made, the bottle was double insulated and did not feel cheap, the blender base itself was very compact so in my kitchen where realstate is at a premium this was a plus. I have used this blender now for about month almost daily which I use for my morning protien breakfast shakes, I add peanut butter, Chia seeds, Flax seeds, Oatmeal, Ice and this blender works like a champ completely pulverizes everything, so no chunks of anything left over. Now my only cons or things that would make this product better would be if it came with two bottles so that my wife can use the blender in the morning and a bottle brush would be awesome to clean it out, as the flax powder tends to dry in the bottle when i leave it in the car as i go into work and then its a pain to clean, luckly I still have small children and have bottle brushes for there sippy cups. Overall this little blender is awesome and works as advertised. I would recommend this for person on the go who drinks shakes or smoothies everyday. The top even has a clip so you can hang on your bookbag or for the gym and the bottle fits in your car cup holder.
Just got it the other day and already using it. I can't believe how much better and faster this works than my old blender system. I wish I had it along time ago, but I finally am upgrading my kitchen this year. Will be able to make my smoothies so much easier and also help my clean eating a little more easier when preparing things. You just can't go wrong with this. It's a lot more heavy duty than I thought it'd be. Plus the added suction cups on my machine works great!
My sister has wanted a ninja blender for a few years. I saw it as a doorbuster at several local stores. No-one had it in stock. I came to Overstock to check, and it was available and at a better price. With the free shipping, it was a no brained! Thanks Overstock!!
