  • Great blender for smoothies

    Makes great smoothies, great at crushing ice. Not as expensive as the Ninja or others, yet does a great job!!

  • Not a great blender.
    Verified Purchase

    Nice looking blender and good value but for anything thick, the bottom gets blended and the top doesn't. Not great for thick yogurt smoothies and such.

    This is a sturdy good ole blender that works well. The style of it goes in my kitchen really well, kinda retro. The functioning of it is a little rough but it does fine. Easy to clean.

    The color was incorrect, the size of the container was incorrect, and the height was incorrect. Unfortunately, Overstock received incorrect information from the manufacturer on this product. Customer service handled the situation seamlessly and it was picked up by UPS within a few days. Take Note: If this item is still listed, be warned. This item number 4096-009 is stainless steel, has a 6-cup container, and is 16 inches tall.

  • Oster Beehive Blender
    Verified Purchase

    I am very happy with this blender. It is very sturdy- reminds me of the days when things didn't fall apart a year after purchase. It works like a charm. I make a smoothy each morning and so far this blender is very reliable. It is loud, that's probably the only drawback. However, it blends everything nicely, there are no chunks left. It is also very stylish on the counter if that matters.... I would highly recommend this blender.

  • Great blender!
    Verified Purchase

    I bought this blender as a gift for my grandson, who is a vegetarian. He makes smoothies & other drinks every day and wanted a basic, POWERFUL machine. He loves it and uses it a couple times a day. It's easier to clean than his GOOD juicer and he agrees he doesn't need more than two blender speeds.

  • Great basic blender
    Verified Purchase

    I bought this blender for smoothies which I have for breakfast daily. It is basic with no fancy frills. It works perfectly for what I need it for. There are 2 speeds which is one more speed than I need. It has a strong but somewhat loud motor. It appears well made and sturdy. Good blender.

  • This is one great blender
    Verified Purchase

    In 1991, I purchased my last Oster blender. It is the exact same beehive model. The motor was still going, but 20+ years later, it had lost some power and was having a little difficulty mixing up the frozen fruit chunks for a smoothie. The simple on/off switch is one reason I love this blender. Another thing I like is the blade it comes with. I actually ordered an additional blade, but it does not work near as well as the blade this blender already comes with. This blender is awesome and always has been. I was worried it wouldn't be available after 20 years, but there it was! The best blender you can buy. I use the stainless steel cannister instead of the glass top, and didn't need a new one of those. It's much lighter, easier to wash and pour from. Suggest getting it, but skip any fancy blade.

    I ordered the beehive oster blender in chrome.What I got was a stainless steel one.I called and they were very helpful,checked to see if they had the chrome one in stock,which they did..said they'd send it and it would take 3 days.I repacked the stainless one,drove to the neighboring town,the closest UPS store to where we live.6 days later I get the new blender..it too is stainless steel,not chrome like I ordered.I caled again..the gentleman told me that he would have complaints resolution people either call or contact me within 48 hours.5 days later I get an email telling me the DO NOT have the blender I wanted..and that is that....

  • Great product!
    Verified Purchase

    I wanted a relatively cheap but good quality blender, and that is exactly what this is. I just use it to make smoothies and the occasional margarita, and it only takes about 5 seconds to completely blend the frozen contents. It is easy to use (two options: high or low - you don't really need much else) and cleaning is easy, too. It also doesn't take up a lot of space, so it fits perfectly on my tiny counter. I am so glad I didn't go for one of the $200+ blenders - this one is perfect! My only complaints: the glass makes it fairly heavy, the lid doesnt easily snap in place (although its unecessary to have it do that - I've never had a mess), and the first time I cleaned it, the upward facing blade caught me off guard and knicked me - more my fault than a complaint about the blender itself, really.

  • Excellent for Frozen Drinks
    Verified Purchase

    Excellent blender. The key to a good blender is the motor wattage and a metal drive assembly. This one has both which makes it perfect for margaritas and other frozen drinks or smoothies. Many blenders have a black hard plastic drive assembly that wears out quickly with a lot of use. I have had this blender for over 1 year and make frozen smoothies almost daily and have had absolutely no problems. Great product, especially for the price. Usually this quality is much more expensive. Also the chrome look has kind of a retro bar look. Cool.

  • A Superior Product

    I recently purchased the Oster 4096-009 because my old blender couldn't handle making the frozen fruit smoothies I really enjoy. I chose this product because the brand and style has been around since my mother was young. I was a little turned off by the idea of the glass beaker so I ordered the stainless replacement and put away the glass one. I also ordered the blend-n-go cup because of the smoothie thing. The blender is awesome. It looks great on my countertop and works better than any I have ever owned. Don't be put off by the concept that this blender only has two speeds - that's all you need. Be honest - how many times have you used anything more than pulse or full bore on your blender? I thought about it and realized that was all I ever used. This is one heavy duty unit, capable of reducting ice to snow and frozen fruit and alcohol into some incredible frozen drinks. A must have for anyone who's into shakes, smoothies or other blended products.
