Rated a Very Helpful Review
Pros:Great for chopping ice, useful speed settings, easy to clean, nice appearance, durable
The Bottom Line: I recommend the Oster 16-Speed Blender as a great product, especially for those looking for the perfect smoothie maker.
I have owned my Oster 16-Speed Blender for only a month, but so far it has proven to be a very useful, efficient product. I purchased it after my old blender died. I use this blender daily to make smoothies, which are always creamy and free of ice chunks. The variety of speeds gives me more freedom in blending foods of different consistencies and thicknesses. This Oster blender is an incredible improvement from the one I used previously.

The Oster 16-Speed Blender has a clean, brush nickel base with an appealing design. The pitcher itself is sturdy grooved glass with a smooth interior for easy pouring. However, nickel/black is the only available color option for this blender.
The blender's base is stable and heavy, keeping it anchored to the countertop while in use. The glass pitcher is thick and durable, as opposed to the cheap plastic I have seen on other blenders. The lid is strong and we have had no scratching or cracking problems with this blender. The blade is strong metal and works very well.
The Oster 16-Speed Blender is a great blender for its price. It cost me only $39.99 and is more efficient than other, more expensive blenders I have used.
The glass pitcher is dishwasher-safe and can hold 5 cups of ingredients, which is perfect for up to three servings. This blender has a powerful 450-watt motor and a high performance ice crusher blade, both of which seem to work very well.
All in all, the Oster 16-Speed Blender produces great quality frozen drinks, which is precisely what I purchased it for.
