From the day My Mixer stopped working I tried many models available in the US only to be returned (NOT Satisfied). Then thought to go ONLY for Indian Mixer.So SEARched the net high and low for an Indian Mixer during this time I came across one sensible Lady's blog where she mentioned ' Oster 16 Speed blender'+ 'Coffee Grinder' would be a perfect replace for any Indian Mixer.
So went to store to buy the two, but to my Luck the Store was out of Stock on 16 speed so brought home 'OSTERIZER 14 Speed' + 'Cuisinart Coffee Grinder' and was Pleasantly Surprised by they fine Grinding.
Sorry you had to read all this, but I had to write it all 'cos there are many Indians in the US who might have faced such a problem at least once and there are many more Who may Face it, So all this to save them from the Pain I went through.
I owned this blender for about three years, and it worked well to make smoothies and milshakes. The bottom piece that screws on broker within the first year, but it was easy to find a replacement. I thought it should have lasted longer, but otherwise it was a decent blender.

Sorry, this little blender doesn't make the grade. The housing doesn't fit well into the base of the blender which makes it a bit of a safety hazard. I like the glass blender bowl and the white base but I'm not happy with the design.
I think this is a very very good blender and the price was reasonable. I use it often, so do my family. We haven't had any problems with this blender It cleans up well and is very sturdy and easy to use. I would certainly recommend this blender

Good Blender. Blends things well. Does have issues with ice. It blends it well, but doesn't rotate the ice good. The top ice will not blend unless you tilt the Blender back and forward while its on.
The blender I had before purchasing this one was plastic. They tend to get scratched up from chopping ice. I bought this one because it was made of glass, seems more durable and figure that it will last longer. Plus, Oster makes great appliances.
This blender is awesome for its price. It can take on any high priced blenders in not only the works department but also the looks department. It didn't wink a bit even when crushing ice cubes to prepare excellent smoothies.

blender quality is great, so far have made mile shakes with ice cubes and the blender has not missed a beat, very happy with this blender, it has several different settings, I just use the highest and I really like this blender.

Got it for cheap price. It works fine and Jar is made from Glass and good size of jar. However still feels like cheap blender. I would not try to blend ice cubes too often because the blade seems not as strong but it works fine for smoothies and make pure. I won't pay more than $20 though.

This is a perfect blender for me. With the price, I will recommend this to anyone. I only use the blender occasionally, and I don't really need it for challenging tasks. If you are like me, you probably don't need to spend more than $100 for those hi-end product.
Got this blender on a points deal recently. Works as expected, and has the good speed changing options. Usually my other blenders have a small plastic rotating base that breaks, but oster makes them with metal, so this is very durable.
low price, looks nice, blends fast, this is a good item, we got one from sears as a gift, i saw it in use and got me one to replace my own blender, it works great, its very powerful and crushes ice cubes like butter.
This blender is good for basic blending, milk shakes, juices. When I tried my indian rice recipe for idilies, it didn't come out very good, but was ok. If you are looking for sturdy blender that can handle the american food, this blender will suffice and will do a good job of it.
This blender works just fine. The capacity is large and it is easy to clean. The glass jar makes for a durable container. The drive system is solid not cheap pot metal coated plastic gears.
This is a fantastic blender. It purees/blends frozen fruit or ice down really well and doesn't leave ANY lumps or chunks. It has a limited number of functions but it doesn't need anything more. I think that this is the best blender you can get for your money that looks good, works well, and is good quality.
I use it almost every day for protein shakes and sometimes cocktails. This blends huge chunks of ice like nothing. I had a big party and it made frozen margaritas all night with no problem. If their were a downfall to it I would say its that there is no pulse option. Sometimes to mix all the protein you have to switch it off and on a couple times to get all the protein blended. Not a big deal to me at all because it adds maybe 5 seconds to my blend time. Great blender.
