Product Review: Oster BLSTVB-000-000 Versa Powerful Performance Blender
Price Range: $350 – $400
Who Would Buy This: Those shopping for a high-performance blender which can tackle the thickest of ingredients without problem.
- A high-power 1400-watt motor provides a tremendous 28,000 rpms of power to the stainless-steel blade, allowing you to blend high loads at high speed.
- Easy-to-use controls allow user-friendly operation of the blender settings. Three functions are available (Smoothies, Soup, Dips/Spreads) via the push button front controls plus a pulse button for blending tasks which are best suited to short bursts of power. Additionally, the speed dial allows you to adjust the current speed on-the-fly so you have full control over the process to get efficient results.
- An extra large 64 oz jar with clearly etched measurements is included. The jar is constructed of BPA-free plastic so you can rest assured that no harmful chemicals will come in contact with your liquids.
- Despite the large size of the Versa, it is very easy to clean so you’ll be sipping your smoothie not long after your blending session without the frustration of cleaning out nooks and crannies.
- A tamper is provided which allows you to push down tough ingredients to ensure that all your produce gets thoroughly blended so no ingredients go to waste.
- A 127 page full-color recipe book comes with the blender, giving you lots of tasty recipe ideas from delicious soups to sweet desserts.
- The high power of this blender results in high noise. However, considering the high speed which it blends at, this only proves to be a short-term annoyance.
- The unit takes up some space due to its tall height of 20.5-inches, so you’ll need to store it somewhere else besides under your kitchen cabinet unless you have taller than average cabinets.
Guarantee: 7-year warranty.
