Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by letsallsucceed Decent blender
Upon receiving this blender I was impressed with the sturdy feeling of the glass jar itself. The base was not as impressive, it feels much less durable. In my experience the blender was good at making smoothies as long as they didn't include ice. When I would add ice the blender did not seem to have enough power to fully crush the ice as compared to my individual size blender.
Conveniently this model also include a food processor attachment. It is a much less sturdy container than the glass jar. I've used it once to process black beans and it sufficiently did the job.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Sarah26601 More bang for your buck
I was in search of a new blender with more options for me. This one caught my attention based on the price and the functions available to me. Our family is becoming big smoothie drinkers so the options that allow that were a big seller as well. This blender not only met my expectations but surpassed them. I LOVE all the options available to me. The noise level was as to be expected depending on what we were blending. Easy to put together based on which mixing cup you were using. Easy to clean as well. Not to mention it looks just as good as other high end models. It offers so much more that what we originally purchased it for and we are so happy that we did.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Laurap Great blender. Ok food processor
I really enjoyed using this blender. It's quick, effective, and really durable. I used the blender portion for my morning smoothies and when I needed to pulverize some fruit to make homemade fruit leather. I live how sturdy the glass blender is. Plus it's sleek-looking and doesn't take up a ton of space. I also used the food processor portion, but was less impressed. The food processor is plastic and feels cheap compared to the blender portion. I tried to make a cream cheese based dip in it (which I can do in a normal food processor) but it couldn't handle it. My dip was left with lumps. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by AshMar86 Underwhelming to say the least.
**DISCLAIMER** I was sent this product to test it out and give my honest opinion.
I really wanted to like this blender. I was excited to see the that it was supposed to be higher performing than the run of the mill. I used to it to make a Strawberry Daquiri pie; blending melted frozen yogurt, thawed juice concentrate, and rum. It didnt want to mix even though there was about 70% liquid in the container. I had flashbacks to the old blender my parents had when I was growing up. I had to stop it every so often to mix it myself; in hopes that it would finally start working. I did more work than this blender did.
The only redeeming quality of this blender is the food processer attachment. (Though for the price you might as well just buy a food processer.) I used it a couple times to make sauces, and to whip up some bananas to freeze into ice cream. It worked really great.
Overall, I would pass on suggesting this. There are too many higher performing blenders on the market to be saddled with one that performs like a blender from the 80's.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ArkansasChris All the blender I need
This Oster blender doesn't have all the bells and whistles of some other models, but, at the end of the day, it's a very good value. The blender blade and glass jar look and feel like solid, high quality pieces, which makes it easy to overlook a slightly cheaper-looking base with buttons that are a little clumsy. Ultimately, the blender gets the job done, and at a very reasonable price. It's all the blender I could need. The unit cleans easily, and has become a welcome addition to my kitchen. I'm sure I'll use it often for fruit smoothies and protein shakes. (I received this product for free to try.)

The instructions say that all but the motor unit are dishwasher safe. However, the food chopper warped the first time I washed it. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by CariAnnMo Solid Blender!
I previously had another Oster Blender that was wearing out. I recieved this blender and LOVE the features and especially love the food processor attachment. I wish I had this blender with my first child, as it would have saved me from buying a baby food maker. The only drawbacks I found are it is quite a bit louder than my previous blender and the buttons seem a little cheaper. But, with that said, it makes smoothies in no time without binding up. I did recieved this product complimentary to review. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
