    Unstable

    I bought this blender on sale because of the affordable price but had reservations due to reading previous buyers reviews. I also experienced the "burning rubber" smell for the first three weeks and was about to return it when the smell went away. I wouldn't recommend this blender for the family due to it's unstable nature. If you don't hold onto the base and top while engaged this blender will topple over and cause serious damage to your kitchen. It does do a fairly good job though of grinding and blending so that is why I plan on keeping it but as security I also bought the BB warranty in case this baby breaks down.

    It's certainly no expensive, destroy a broomstick high dollar blender, but it does get the job done pretty well. The blades are strong and it comes apart easily for cleaning. It suctions to the counter as well and has a lot of nice settings. My favorite thing to recreate are frappes, and I'll tell you I won't buy from a restaurant again, it does that very well, if not better. So I save a few bucks there as well, thank you Oster! You have to get used to the settings a little, but with a little patience and experimenting, this blender can do most of what 100 dollar blenders can do. Definitely a must have on a conservative budget.

    Short term great; long term poor

    I bought this mid Jan and really liked it. But after barely a month a crack had developed in the side. I used it according to the directions and not sure what happened. I used it to chop ice and I am not sure if that did it. With a ice chopper setting you would think that would not crack the container, but who knows. Very disappointed and am going to try to return it to Best Buy. I believed in it enough not to save any packaging or receipt. Fortunately it is on my Best Buy profile so I have proof of purchase. I may call customer service for Oster too - if my review does not spark a response or if Best Buy will not let me return it. Very disappointed!!!

    Complete piece of junk

    A complete waste of your money. First off, it had the constant smell of something electrical burning. The smell filled the kitchen and front room. Second, while it was running, it was not only loud, but did a lousy job of actually blending anything. Third, the motor must not be balanced, as the unit started walking itself across the counter. Fourth, since the lid was made of very thin, flexible rubber - it actually popped off from the motor's vibration. DO NOT spend your hard earned money on this - no matter how great the sale price.

      Thank you so much for writing this review. It is not a normal occurrence for our blender to smell like it is burning. It sounds like from all the information you have provided us that this blender is malfunctioning. If you still have the blender please call us at 1-800-334-0759, our hours of operation are Monday-Friday from 9am-6pm, EST. Oster

    I love this blender. Had one that I purchased many years ago that I neede to replace. I use my blender almost every day to make frozen strawberry smoothies and this one is wonderful. It actually is the exact same one I had from years ago and I was thrilled when I put the model # in the computer and it came up available at Best Buy. I ordered it with store pick up and had it the same day. Wonderful !! I now have a great blender and 2 glass pitchers for it because I had the one from my old blender. I am very Happy with this blender.

    Simple, yet useful blender

    So far I'm happy with my blender. I didn't need anything professional like a Ninja blender; I just wanted one that would allow me to make simple sauces for the meals I prepare and this one does the trick. And also, it was super cheap. I saw lots of complaints that it's terrible when it comes to crushing ice but I haven't tried it myself (it's not a thing I need/do at all). For this reason, if you plan to use it for sauces, I would highly recommend it.

    This blender does the job however I saw it at Target for $10 cheaper. Luckily I bought the best buy warranty for $5 because the plastic broke after a few days so I plan to return it and get a new one. Over all no major complaints and was my own fault I didn't read the box well enough to notice it wasn't made of glass. It was much cheaper at Target but due to the best buy warranty covering anything and the fact that it broke already I'm happy I bought it at Best Buy so I can return for a new one.

    Great Blender

    Well my mom and dad have had this blender for 10+ years and it's just now started to burn up. It crushes ice great, mixes great smoothies, even when you put whole fruit in!! I love it and I love mixing with it. It's just now starting to burn it because we use it so often and that's because mom used the fire out of it and I love it to make smoothies etc. It's a durable blender, as a matter of fact I'm buying another one for her this Christmas to replace this one!!!

    I went to Best-buy and purchased above noted blender for personal use to blend protein shakes with ice-cream, strawberries, ice, etc. The blender does what I need it to do as it blends ice-cream with protein powder however, this blender may not be able to do what you want it to do. The blender is sub-par at breaking ice up for smoothies. The blender will make a smoothie however, the smoothies may have chunks of ice in it. With all in consideration, the blender makes good milkshakes but is sub-par at making smoothies.

    Got this on a Black Friday special. I have blender but 'needed' another dedicated just to milkshakes (long story). Oster has a milkshake specific blender blade (bought on Amazon). So this is now a pretty terrific milkshake maker at a good price (blade cost the same as the blender itself) Pros: value for price. Does all I want. Cons: The motor is loud, the carafe is plastic and the carafe doesn't lock onto the base meaning I have to hold it on -- big deal :) Overall good blender i nthe low end market.

    Piece of junk

    Oster knows how to make a good blender but they didn't with this model. Perhaps our paticular blender had a defect, but our impression is that the mechanical design of this model is terrible. The motor is understrength, loud, and the machine vibrates heavily during normal use. The blender can't be left unattended for even a seconds during use. it has to be held down. We had it literally vibrate off a countertop when making an ordinary smoothie. Don't waste your money on this junk.

    My girlfriend uses this mostly, to make drinks and smoothies. So we haven't had it a long time, but it gets used a lot. It's had no problems blending whatever she's thrown at it, and I guess that's all you can ask of a blender. I was basically looking for least expensive with most room and metal blades (very cheap ones can have plastic blades, which I've learned is as bad as it sounds). So I respect this blender as much as I could respect a blender, I guess.

    Excellent blender

    I wanted a low-cost blender with a glass container that would stand up to daily use. This fits the bill. I've used it almost every day since I bought it in October 2014 (now Jan 2017 if there's no date given). I use it for smoothies, protein shakes, and pureeing soup. Also, unlike the other two blenders I had, the letters haven't rubbed off this one, so I still know what action corresponds to what button, top or bottom

    $20 + $5 2-Year Geek Squad Product Replacement seems like a great deal for this blender. I will handle with care, never wash anything in the dishwasher, and confidently use this blender for years. The Geek Squad deal and delicate care, on a low priced item like this, seem like a good investment to guard against any problems. Happy with this purchase!

    I bought is product for my mother because she wanted a new blender. The blender works but when you fill it completely, it stops working. So i would say, only fill it half way. The buttons for the functions are kinda confusing at first but after a while you'll get used to it. But overall, she loves it and uses it all the time. And for the price that i bought it for ($19.95), it is great.

    We got this simply because we needed to replace our old blender. It was cheap and we said why not. We are pretty impressed with the quality so far. We have used it more than we thought we would to make lots of things. My favorite so far has been the numerous drinks we blended for a get together and it did wonders all night!

    I really like the plastic blending jar because it is very light and easy for me to hold and use. However, the blender moves around some while it is blending, and it is much louder than my previous blender (but that one had a glass jar). As for performance, it does a great job blending. I have tried a few different speeds so far and they have all performed well.

    I've used a lot of blenders, from the regular to high end vitamix blenders. Don't expect too much with this blender, but for the price it does do a decent job. If you you like smoothies, milkshakes, etc and want an affordable blender , then this might be what you want. Been making lots of smoothies and milkshakes since getting it, and it does whats expected.

    My wife and I purchased this blender as a Christmas gift to my mother. It is an excellent mid level blender. It does just what it says, easy to use and easy to cleanup. My mom is happy that she has a good blender that she can use heavily during the holidays and year round as well!

    Our old blender died. It had been a wedding gift,but now it's dead. It lived to a ripe old age of 40! Now my husband has a brand new modern blender with all the bells and whistles! My husband is thrilled with his new blender. First he made a smoothie. Now he's working on bigger and better things. He tells me daily how happy he is with his new toy. He LOVES ❤️ It
