Oster® Classic Series 8-Speed Blender with Travel Smoothie Cup, Nickel Plated is rated out of 5 by 1.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Sean in LA from Not great We bought this at Target a couple of weeks ago because the bottom gear wheel came off of the blade assembly on our old blender (a Hamilton Beach I bought way back in 1999 at Kmart). We thought it would be fun to shop for a new one together. At first look, this Oster should have worked as well at the old one but it did not. Way too much splatter when I made a frozen smoothie in the glass jar. I think it's a poor design. The base is more narrow than our old one so combined with the design of the almost 90-degree up and down vertical blades, the frozen fruit just sits on top of the blades until you turn it on and then everything just gets thrust up into the air. Blueberry skins and whey protein got all stuck to the sides and the bottom of the lid. I'd have to shut it off, push everything back down into the mix with a spoon and then start it again. All of the splatter also makes it take longer to clean. Our old blender uses basically two interlocking cogs (one on the base and one on the bottom of the blade assembly) to spin the blades and the motor has a lot more torque than the new one does, so it doesn't just thrust into full speed violently when you press the power button. Plus, this blender is much louder than our old one, so I'm guessing there is much less insulation surrounding the motor. The base is probably half the weight of our old one, so that tells me that there's more plastic and less metal in the construction. As the saying goes, they don't make things like they used to. Luckily, to my surprise, I found replacement parts for our nearly 20-year-old blender online for $12 and they arrived in two days with free shipping. So we will be returning the Oster blender to Target this weekend and continuing on with our old reliable Hamilton Beach. Is has a wider base, so more of the fruit sits under the blades and just gets churned up naturally when you start it. The blades are only at roughly 45-degree angles which make the blending less violent. I'm sure this Oster blender is fine for just blending liquids and fresh fruit and probably other things like chopping ice maybe. But I mainly only use it for frozen smoothies using frozen fruit, orange juice and whey protein and for that purpose it was not very satisfactory. The extra smoothie container feature is nice in principal, but when I tried to use it, the lid just kept hitting my sunglasses so I had to actually take the lid off to drink out of it. We already have other containers with re-usable straws that work much better. I'm sure there are much higher end, more expensive blenders that would work more satisfactorily, but why spend that much money when I can continue using my old one for $12 in replacement parts? Thanks.
