Rated 1 out of 5 by MattCowan from Junk bearing Bought this 21 months ago and it saw light duty at first. Six months ago, wife and I started making smoothies with frozen fruit almost everyday. Three months into that, the bearing in the jar went out; it was loud, too slow to blend effectively, getting very hot, and spewing oil out from under the jar. I contacted Oster and got a replacement within ten days, no questions asked. Three months later, the exact same thing happens. Now when i contact Oster, they say that they've never covered the jar, but they sent it to me as a courtesy. I'm attaching the warranty below - its only two paragraphs and doesn't mention the jar.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Jenny C from Blender jar is junk When looking for a new blender 3 years ago, we looked at many brands, including the oster Versa and vitamix. Oster boasts being comparable to vitamix but for much less. Well you get what you pay for!! Vitamix is def better, and their warranty is as well. We use ours for the occasional smoothie, no ice or hard to blend items, and it’s making an awful noise and smells of burning when in use. I’m not buying a new jar for $40 to have it happen again in a few months. Save your money and get a vitamix! That’s what we plan to do now. Also, customer service has not been helpful with oster which speaks volumes to me!

Rated 2 out of 5 by ORENCIO from Poorly Made Within 4 months of purchasing this blender the cup blade mechanism failed. It first leaked oil and within a few weeks after it just completely ceased.This is an expensive blender and expected much more. I could not bring myself to throwing it away because it cost so much so I simply stored it. Fast forward 1 1/2 years later to 2018 and I've decided to look for another cup because after all, things sometimes do fail but I have found it virtually impossible to find another cup for it. This is sad. Other than the cup, the blender itself seems strong and well made. What to do now?

Rated 2 out of 5 by rocky goat from Great motor but poor jar and lid While this blender works great, the lid gasket came loose and appears to have stretched out followed by the jar developing a bad leak from around the blade assembly. Usually I'm not a complainer but on reading other reviews, I see this is a common problem. I figured I'd just replace the jar but at $80.00 I find it very overpriced for something that's of such poor quality. For $250.00 I would expect the entire unit to last and not to feel gouged buying replacement parts.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Michael77 from Poor Quality Blade Assembly The jar itself has been great, but the blade assembly locked up within the first six months of use and the rubber seal on the jar lid tore as well. The motor of this unit is great and powerful but not able to use it due to poor accessories. Loved the blender before the accessories broke.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Blenderbudddy3 from Jar Blade Bearing Failed - No Customer Service I bought this blender 2 yrs ago and the jar blade bearings burned up and failed. Base unit motor is fine. Tried calling the customer service line several times as mentioned in comments below, but every time they have “unusually high call volume” and hang up. Unfortunately purchasing a new jar from the site, with shipping, will be ~$70. In general, blender is powerful and I loved it, but given the initial price tag and replacement cost for only 2yrs of service is the reason for a 2 star rating.

Rated 1 out of 5 by BJCh from Really....where's the new improved jar? I have had the same problem as others with this jar. Started leaking black goo out the bottom of jar. From reading the reviews and questions about this jar, many other have had problems with this jar. I called customer support and was told that the jar is being redesigned and to keep checking the website to see when it is in stock. Looks like others have been waiting for months for this jar, and now me also. My advise...fork out the extra $ for a reliable Vitamix.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Derek from Doesn't Last Doesn't Last I purchased this 9 months ago and the jar part that attaches to the motor broke down with the ball bearings falling out. I have to purchase a new one. Blender is not good quality.
