Why we picked this smoothie maker cum blender?
Our mixer blew up a couple of weeks ago. So we started searching for a product that can do the job and last a long time. We started searching through online forums, local flyers and company websites. But were not really impressed.
Then we decided to compare products on product forums etc. But still no success. Our biggest concern was the quality and price. We were not in the mood to spend 100’s of $$$$.
After our comprehensive search, we shortlisted a couple of options. Read below, what’s next?
Pro’s of Oster Smoothie Maker and Blender
First of all, the price is right. You can’t go wrong with $39.98 Canadian. We agree, there are shipping charges, but you should try Prime from Amazon. See the link at the end of this page.
This is the first time we bought a blender with glass jar and we love it. It is little heavy, however, it works to crush ice like we are mixing the dough. The other benefit is Glass jar is more sturdy and you can keep using it. Also, a glass jar is better for food safety. Glass is useful for hot and cold foods.
Glass jar enhances the taste. It is easy for preparation, serving and cleaning. And it is a better option for the environment.
12 Speed is very helpful when you can use the blender to do many different things.
The base of this Smoothie maker is made of metal, which works better than a plastic base and jar. There is no possibility of a spill of any kind from the jar.
You can easily store this jug in a drawer or cupboard.
700 peak watts, 6 cup glass jar, 3-year satisfaction guarantee and 10 years all metal drive system limited warranty are a few Pros.
Crush Pro blade, power booster are some other features for you.
