Oster® Versa® 64-oz. BPA-Free Blender Jar with Blade Assembly is rated out of 5 by 9.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Delta Zulu from Exceptional but impossible to find replacement jar I've had the Oster Versa Pro blender for almost two years now and it has always performed beyond my expectations. I use it on the weekends to make smoothies or soups, depending on the season. However, today the jar (low profile jar) went kaput! I noticed a burned-like smell and smoke was coming from the bottom of the jar. Initially, I was not sure how this happened but after reading other reviews I realized the seal broke, oil leaked out and now the blade's housing/bearing is destroyed. To make things worst, finding a replacement Tritan low profile jar has been impossible. I really whish you'd make things easier for your customers.

Rated 4 out of 5 by ScottK from Great blender, Jar has issues The rating would be much lower if it were not for the good warrantee and prompt free replacement. As mentioned in another review the bearings are the issue. After nine months or so of daily (home) usage the bearing seised up and put the blender out of commission. Since they didn't ask for the old one back I took it apart to see what the issue was. There are two bearings on the blade shaft and one was completely frozen. The seal had blown and with no lubrication it failed. As the other review mentioned if you start to see the black oil (it's actually grease) it means your seal is leaking and it's just a matter of time before the bearing will go out.

Rated 2 out of 5 by B Master from Awesome Performance, Short Life I have had the Oster Performance 1400W blender since late 2014. Performance wise this blender is top notch. Reliability on the other hand is lacking. I am currently on my third jar as the bearing assembly keeps failing. Early signs are black grease on the bottom of the jar followed by increased noise. Luckily I have never had an absolute failure however with as much as this blender costs, I expect more. I did notice that the current jar appears to have a different bearing. Hopefully this one will last. If it does, I will change my review.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Lando79 from WASTE OF MONEY! WASTE OF MONEY! My wife had been using the Versa, with great results, until less then a year of ownership it started leaking, a few months after grease started coming out of the blade assembly, finally we stopped using it and have been trying for two months to get help from Oster. Two emails unanswered and ZERO luck getting through from the (800) 334-0759 number that they post here. Could have been a good experience if not for Oster's lack of response. Customer Service line message states that they have a large call volume and can't pick up at this time, I wonder why!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Ossie from Definitely not vitamix quality I've worked in commercial kitchens where the vitamix is both an essential and ubiquitous piece of equipment. Not able to stomach the price for home use I set out to find a decent alternative. Oster WAS a trusted name I thought I could count on. Sorely wrong. Like others have said, the bearings are garbage. After 18 months of intermittent use, the bowl seized and the bearings came out. For 75% the cost of a vitamix, you would expect a better quality product. Lesson learned.

Rated 2 out of 5 by suzeq56 from Seized Up I bought the Versa blender a couple of years ago, but have only used it 8 or 9 times. I was making enchilada sauce today and the blade gear melted down, smoked and totally locked up. The sauce I was blending was not sticky or thick. This is the second Versa I've had (I got the 1100 series first) and both have had the same problem. This is the last Oster blender I will purchase.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Mike747 from Blender Jar Fails Again! I am in the process of ordering a third Versa 64oz blender jar, they fail after normal use. It is the same story every time, the seal under the blade fails and leaks on to the motor assembly. Not sure why Oster would put a cheaply made blender jar on such a dependable motor? Time to look at the competition, getting tired of the jar seal failing!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Disgusted totally from Don't buy this unit!! The worse design with the rotation seal. Burned-up one and the second one leaks after a few months of use. And NO replacement Parts available.
