Classic good looks you can leave out on the counter - important if you use it daily as I do. Very powerful and easy to clean. Simple 2-speed motor. Flip the switch up for it to stay on high. Press it down for medium speed "pulse" (meaning the switch doesn't stay on). It looks a lot like my mom's 1960s Osterizer, which still works just fine. I really wanted to give this blender 5 stars but it is so terribly loud and the cord is too short (only about 2 ft). A little more noise dampening in the base would have it sturdier and quieter.
"I can finally make my health smoothie all day everyday! I was very excited to try this blender because I for one love blending fruits and vegetables to create new recipes! This Oster Simple Blend claims to be perfect for smoothies, so I just had put it to the test by making my special avocado condensed milk smoothie! Instead of leaving just a review, I'll show off my recipe for curious reviewers! Ingredients: 1 whole avocado (or more if you're crazier about the fruit than me!) 3 table spoons of condensed milk 1 banana 4 ice cubes 1/2 cup of almond or coconut milk Optional: chia seed for a healthy boost Now to set up my Oster Simple blender! With its 6 cup capacity, the blender can hold plenty enough for the whole family or when making smoothies for parties. But for this particular recipe, it can serve 3 people. I was impressed with the variety of settings available for the blender, such as the purée setting which will be useful later when I slowly bring the ingredients together. The buttons alone are fairly easy to understand and use if you are already familiar with the different types of processing. Since I am making smoothies, I will pay attention to how the blender will blend, crush, purée, and After I sliced my avocado and banana into cubes, I dropped them into the blender. Then I added the almond milk, and my tablespoons of condensed milk. As suggested by Oster's directions on ice with liquid, I dropped the ice cubes last so the fruits could be blended first and then crushing the ice last. The cap held on quite firmly which is a plus for me, because from past experiences with blenders I could tell when they slowly rise up from the force of the blending, so I used to have to keep my hand on the edge of it. But from this Oster blender, the top is a rubber that securely latches onto the blender cup like a suction with no worries of spills. I can tell the blades were sharp as none of the ice cubes and fruits blocked them from blending; it took about 30 seconds to completely blend everything neatly together. I pushed purée for 20 seconds to bring it into a thick consistency. When I opened the cap to check, it blended efficiently as there were hardly any ice cubes and chunky remains leftover. And voila, a smoothie is made in a total of a minute. And the cleanup process was just as quick as using it! 3-4 blends of soapy water using their "clean" button feature and it's squeaky clean! I don't have a dish washer, but I like the fact that this is dishwasher friendly for an even easier cleanup. The speed for this particular blender is exceptional and very suitable for smoothie and juice making! I will be looking forward to testing out the other speed functions in the future, I also enjoy homemade salsa so we shall see how well this chops and minces. As for my delicious and nutritious smoothie making, yes, Oster Simple Blend performs the job well. As the name suggests, it's simple and convenient for everyday smoothie making for that healthy lifestyle.
When I received this blender I was impressed with the durable glass jar. The base nice and durable as well.The blender was great with good power and effectiveness except for ice. The ice crushing ability was not impressive however. While the food processor included is nice, it was not as durable as the glass jar. Disclaimer: I did receive this blender to try out for free.
