Can you imagine waking up every morning and being able to have some fresh juice, a cold smoothie, or even a tasty milkshake with the minimum of fuss and effort? Well that is exactly what the Oster blender is setting out to help you to be able to do. If it can help you to wake up in the morning then why not take a look! I know I need all the help I can get.

What features does it have?

This blender is designed for people who are on the go without much time to even think about stopping to make their smoothie before setting out on their way for the day. That is why the sports bottle can be removed from the blender once you have created your drink, and you can use it to drink from straight away! No messing around with pouring and changing the bottles with the Oster! It is a simple machine for busy people, so the one touch blending function is a good feature to have.

You’ve said it’s easy to use, but just how big is it?

It is tiny. The measurements of 6.9 x 6.7 x 14.9 inches mean that not only will it easily fit on your breakfast bar for your morning smoothie, but it is also small enough to be portable, so if you need a banana flavoured boost at lunch time you can take it into the office without worrying about its size. The Oster comes in multiple colours, but my personal preference is the blue!

What are the plus points?

This particular blender is small, compact, and easy to use so blending your favourite drinks should be as simple as pie! Its 250 watt motor is not the most powerful one on the market, but it will more than do the job for a morning smoothie or two. The sports bottle is dishwasher safe so that is another job you won’t to worry about, and there is even a built in resettable fuse which will revive the motor within 15 minutes should it ever overheat. A lot squeezed in to a small machine!

What about the negatives?

This is not a blender without fault, but thankfully its faults are very small. The drinking lid is the number one complaint about the Oster. People have stated that it is of a sub-par build quality and that this has affected their user experience. Nobody wants smoothie spilling all down their clothes, but to me this seems like a minor fault, and it is something that can be easily rectified so it shouldn’t put you off. 

Should I buy it?

If you have a busy lifestyle and want a simple smoothie and juice maker then you will struggle to find a better one than this. It does not have the biggest capacity, the most powerful motor, or the greatest number of features when compared to others, but it more than does the job it promises to.
