  • This Is Not Your Mother's Blender

    Dec 10, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Attractive, heavy motor, flexible
    Cons: Loud, a little on the expensive side, broke after 8 months

    Summary: My original review from December 2002 follows, but here's an update from July 2003: The motor still works, but the blade won't spin. This is a design flaw that doesn't seem to exist in other blenders made by this company. On the In2itive, ... read more

    Pros: Pretty silver, nice motor has a mind of its own
    Cons: LOUD expensive leaks metal shavings

    Summary: Well, after having a number of times bought the standard 15 dollar blender from the big box king walmart, we took the plunge and spent nearly a hundred bucks at Costco. Here I am thinking, this will be the last blender I ever have to buy. HUGE motor, ... read more

    Pros: Nice look, stainless steel body, automatic functions
    Cons: Bad coupler, can't withstand long usage.

    Summary: I purchased this blender a year ago. Got this from costco. Usually I'm a bit reluctant to buy electronic things from costo, because of my experience. Many of the electronic items, I found at costco (usually the ones that arrive during holiday ... read more

    Pros: Preset Programs, Great Functionality, Somewhat easy clean up
    Cons: Pricey, gears grind and make a bit of a shaving mess, LOUD!

    Summary: Originally I had my reservations about this blender. It is SO loud and there is some sort of defect that causes the gears that turn the blade to grind and get shavings all over the place. However, after a few weeks of use, the shavings go away. It's ... read more

    Pros: Pretty blender, pretty powerful, pretty awesome
    Cons: wear earplugs, work out before attempting to dismantle

    Summary: That was it! I had HAD IT with our twenty dollar K-mart blender. You couldn't make a smoothie to save your life! There were always big chunks of ice and fruit leftover. When it started leaving behind chunks of ripe bananas, I knew it had to go. ... read more

  • Costco gave us our money back!

    Pros: Costco gave us our money back!
    Cons: Leaks badly. Difficult to clean. Scary!

    Summary: Unfortunately, the best thing about this blender was that Costco gave us our money back after we struggled with this high priced contraption for over a year. I purchased this blender after accidentally destroying my mother's Osterizer that ... read more

    Pros: Programs, simple clean up, just works great.
    Cons: Loud

    Summary: After my upteenth blender burned up, we decided to try to get a "good" one. Oster 6700 was what we decided on. We got it Christmas 2003. First let me say mine has a separate blade unit from the lexan jar. I have had no leakage at all with this blender. ... read more

    Pros: It's pretty and makes pretty smoothies.
    Cons: It's pretty NOISY and pretty CHEAP. Not ready for prime time blenders.

    Summary: Yeah, it looks good, but from late April to Mid December '03, I'm about to return the 6th model 6700, to Wal-Mart. The first 5 failures were the "disintegrating rubber under the cog drive" failure, each lasting about 5 weeks. This 6th failure appears to ... read more

    Pros: Throw a tree branch in there for some mulching action, it can handle it.
    Cons: Loud during extreme high power mulch mode.

    Pros: Lots of power. The only blender I have used which can actually crush ice well.
    Cons: Leaking, Jar sometimes has hard time fitting on base.

    Summary: For some reason the unit I purchased leaked the day I brought it home. I brought it back to the place I bought it, and they would have exchanged if they had any in stock. I therefore took it back home and decided to take it to a service center. They order ... read more

    Pros: Will blend anything
    Cons: LEAKS! LEAKS! LEAKS! Cannot find parts

    Summary: I bought this Oster In2itive blender to make protein shakes which it did well for about 2 weeks. Then it begins to leak and the more you clean it the more it leaks. The O-Ring system they use for the jar is the worst thing I have ever seen. The O-ring ... read more

    Pros: Only blender I've ever had that could make SNOW cones from ice
    Cons: difficult to put together, dangerous when it finally broke

    Summary: I also have had the In2itive 6700 leak and break on me, but unlike other people's reviews, mine lasted some 5 or 6 years before starting to leak.  When we replaced the O-ring with no success, we realized the leaking was an issue in how *we* were ... read more

    Pros: Looks nice & has a study outer construction.  The pre-sets are a nice feature also.
    Cons: Doesn't blend well, quite expensive, very loud, leaks like crazy too.

    Summary: I've been struggling with this leaking beast since I purchased it in 2003.  I just figured it was the gasket.  We replaced it and it made no difference.  It blends certain things great but sucks at at blending anything like hummus that has ... read more

    Pros: Great features and many cycles. Also looks real good on the counter.
    Cons: Leaks, leaks, leaks.

    Summary: I purchased this unit because of the incredible features and cycles it has. It will make most anything you need a blender for. It is kind of noisey, however, because of its great performance and features I overlooked that. After about 6 months of very ... read more

    Pros: Nothing but Junk. Little pros.
    Cons: Junk and more junk.

    Summary: It leaks like a sieve. We only had it a month before it began to leak. And when I say leak, I mean LEAK. Also there is a lot of oily junk on it. Tried to get it repaired and replaced the jar (30 bucks later - we spent over 100) and it still leaks. ... read more

    Pros: Powerful. Nice membrane keys. Auto shut off when not in use.
    Cons: LOUD!! (more power, more noise) Poor quality in the motor and components.

    Summary: Worked ok for a few uses then the fan on the motor fell off because the retaining nut unthreaded itself. Returned for replacement. Then the motor burned up within 30 days. Returned for replacement. Finally, the gear that spins the blades then stripped ... read more

    Pros: Looks
    Cons: Everything else, Broke during the first week

    Summary: I bought this blender thinking it's attractive and it's expensive and it's an Oster so it ought to be good. Wrong, broke this machine within the first week of using it. The rubber holding the metal gear to the motor just twisted off. Good hey, I was ... read more

    Pros: Great Ice Crusher Feature (even without liquid).
    Cons: Bottom jar-seal is terrible; a sponge would do better to hold in liquids!

    Summary: After enduring its overly-leaky design for 2+ years, I gave in & bought a different brand this weekend. The only time this blender did not leak (or shall I say, FLOW?) was the 1st time I used it. After that, liquids easily flowed right through the ... read more
