2 failed in the last 12 monthsUpon initial purchase, this was my new favorite kitchen gadget. After a few months of occasional use for soups and smoothies, the housing stripped and the the blender did not work anymore. I figured that user error caused the problem, so I bought a second one just like it and promised myself that I'd be extra careful. I have been very careful for the last 6 months and yesterday, while blending a soup, the motor continued to buzz yet the blade would not turn. What a shame! I know that I will not be buying this model again and I hope that at least one of these purchases will be covered by the 3-year limited warrantee that Oster offers on some of their products...

Conveniet, powerful blender!This is a powerful, and versatile blender! The Oster immersion blender will be kept right on my top drawer, so I can easily use it for every blending job. I have used it to make milk shakes, right in the cup I plan to serve it in! I have used it to make salsa, right in the bowl! I have used it to purée soup, right in the pot! The design is perfect, the blades are powerful. The second best thing to performance, is clean up. It practically cleans itself. No more washing my big blender, no more big blender taking up important real estate space on my counter. There's a new blender in town! I was given this blender as a sample to give an honest review, the views are my own.

Good ValueI was impressed by the quality of the materials used. It felt sturdy when I unpacked it and, in fact, found it to be a bit heavy on my first uses. I am used to it now, but feel more comfortable using two hands for operating. I like the idea that the blade stick is remove able for ease in cleaning. While it has 2 speeds, I wish the slow speed was a bit slower, especially for trying to make mixed cream drinks. Overall, it is a good value for the money and I would recommend it. I would rate it 5 star but the weight and low speed were slight problems. I received this appliance to try and review, however I would purchase it.

Very Handy kitchen helpThis Oster Hand Blender is a great help in the kitchen. It makes milkshakes with ease and doesn't have any trouble with hard ice cream. Smoothies are another thing I used this Hand Blender for and it worked really well although I used it only with crushed ice as it may have a harder time with whole cubes. I really like the way it comes apart for easy cleaning and the included measuring cup/storage cup. Did not like that the measuring cup was in "mL" only and not "ounces" but that is something I can work around.
I did receive this item for free in order to review and overall really believe this is a quality Hand Blender.

I love it !!!I was a little skeptical about this product at first. But the more I used it the more I liked it. I made my own hummus for the first time. It's a great product to use if your making small batches. (Enough for 1-4 people) I also used it for salsa. A lot easier clean up than a food processor. I highly recommend this for a family of 1-4. A friend of mine even told that his wife uses hers for making baby food.(but that's just what he says I've never tried it. (No baby's in this household. Lol) I've even gave one as a present to a single friend of mine. He says he likes it too.
Although I received this as a freebie,
To test and report on.
Everything I've said is the truth.

Was great at first. Broke down after 2 weeks.Loved this handheld blender when I initially received it. I used it to make green smoothies. It did the job however it initially left chunks of apple and spinach at the bottom of the pitcher/cup. I had to use a fork to stir the ingredients around and even then I had to press down unbelievably hard on the blender to get it to chop up everything. It is easy to clean and is really convenient for making single servings. I've only had it for a week so I can only guess as to its durability. Update: After two weeks, something in the speed change button broke or got stuck. Now it only blends at one-speed, but it still functions. Full disclosure: I received this blender as a sample for reviewing purposes.

Surprisingly WonderfulI thought the blender was surprisingly great! I was not expecting a great product from Oster, their products are hit and miss with how they perform. But this hand blender did a great job! It cleans easily and is ready to go onto its next job quickly! I loved that it has such a slim contour and fits just about anywhere. It fits in the drawers and in the cabinets. But best of all, it even looks great to just leave on the counter so I can grab it frequently. It's been great on all sorts of blending jobs, from liquids to veggies! I will continue to use this tool on a weekly, if not daily, basis. In full disclosure, I received this product as a sample to test - but I recommend it to everyone!

PowerfulThe immersion blender performed great. I made a roasted sweet potato soup. This blender handled the heat and the chunks of potatoes better than I expected. It blended the soup to a luscious creamy consistency with very little effort. I really like the covered measuring cup that comes with it. Very easy to blend in the cup. I made a cold strawberry soup in that. The blade on the on blender made quick work of the strawberries and cream. I was very happy with the ease of being able to take the bottom portion of the blender off to rinse. I look forward to using this unit to make cream potatoes and other soups. I received this product to test for review. Very happy with the power and performance.
