Oster Versa Blender Review & Giveaway ($300.00)

Oddly, I get the same question often, “What is the best blender to get?”

I usually answer with, “Well, depends on how much you want to spend.”

People are watching their pennies these days and don’t want to spend the $500-$700 for the 2 Blenders that claim to be the best.

Well guess what?

Now,there is a new Powerhouse Blender in town for half the price and it comes from Oster®, which happens to be the most trusted blender brand since 1926.

Welcome the Oster® Versa Performance Blender.

Before I get into the specifics, this blender would make an awesome Mother’s Day gift. For a limited time if you purchase this beautiful blender, you will get a $50 Walmart Gift Card. Click here to purchase.

The new Oster® Versa Performance Blender can blend anything from soup to nuts.

It’s truly a powerhouse.

Let’s take a look at this beauty.

Packed all cozy in it’s box, just waiting to unleash it’s power.

Oster Versa Blender

It’s a substancial size. I put a regular sized pineapple next to it for a size comparison.
The 64oz. jar is very sturdy and thick. Believe me you don’t want a glass blender jar. I have broken at least 2 in my day.

There are just enough settings. In my opinion, some blenders go overboard with all their settings.
The turn dial, is purely for speed. The touch button are preprogramed for time and speed…you have pulse, smoothie, soup and dips/spreads.

Oster Versa Blender 001

There are 6 blades that blend everything….they even blend ice PERFECTLY. Those 6 little steel blades go over 250 MPH and with its 1400 watt motor, so theres really nothing this blender cant handle.

Oster Versa Blender 003

Another thing I love about the Oster® Versa Performance Blender is it comes with a Tamper Wand. Can you say genius?!?!?! It lets you push items into your blender if they need a little help getting down to the blade.
Have you ever had your lid fly off during blending? Not fun.
Or do you have to sit there and hold your lid onto you blender when you blend?
Not with this lid, when you put it on, it’s not coming off until YOU take it off, so you can press smoothie on the blender and WALK AWAY without having to worry about having smoothie on your ceiling!

Oster Versa Blender 010

I was very impressed with the thick stainless steel housing for the blades.

Oster Versa Blender 009

I put the blender to the test with my favorite smoothie recipe…
About 4 large strawberries, large handfull blueberries, large handfull baby spinach, 1 cup unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk and about a cup of ice.
One tip with ALLLLLL blenders, if you are using ice, ALWAYS ALWAYS put it in last!

A perfectly SMOOTH smoothie.

    I would definitely make a green smoothie – this blender looks awesome!

  2. 2

    That’s an easy one: I’d make a *fruit* smoothie! Pineapple, oranges, frozen strawberries and blueberries, along with some soaked wheatberries. A full meal in a glass.
