Has an impressive feature set capable of blending nearly any food items to perfection, including variable speeds, 3 programmed settings, and 1400 watts of power that produce excellent results. Jar has capacity for 8 cups.
Pricey. Large and takes up significant space on a kitchen counter or in storage. A few durability issues reported; most that are backed by the warranty. A bit on the loud side.
Despite its inexpensive price, the Classic Series is a highly capable blender with 5 speed settings and 700 watts of power. Does a good job with most basic blending tasks and crushing ice. Straightforward to use.
Not the best choice for cooks who use blenders frequently for hard-to-blend foods. Somewhat loud.
Chops and blends with precision, thanks to its 900 watts of power and 7 speeds with dual-direction reversible blade technology. Fairly quiet. The sleek brushed nickel finish compliments other small and large kitchen appliances.
Very rare reports of faulty models with customer service being prompt to help resolve such issues. Some of the plastic components feel flimsy.
Stands out for its wide mouth 7-cup jar – a full cup larger than similar models in its price range. Has 6 speeds and 700 watts of power. Not too noisy to operate.
Few reports of malfunctions, but customer service was attentive. Some owners gripe about "chunks" remaining after blending food or ice.
Cooks who prefer an effortless model love the Beehive's 2-speed toggle switch that is super easy to use and ideal for smoothies, frozen drinks, soups, and more. Slender, attractive design; 600 watts of power.
Quite loud. Consumers who use blenders for preparing numerous types of foods in various consistencies will likely miss having numerous settings and functions.

Oster makes all the major types of blenders, including countertop, personal, professional, immersion, and blender/food processor combos. The top-of-the-line models come with 10 different speeds, including pulse and purée features with 5 cup glass containers. Many of their blenders are compatible with various accessories like a food chopper attachment, milkshake blade, or smoothie kit if the blender is not already equipped with these items. They also make individual smoothie cups for single servings. However, if you don't need or have room for a full-size blender, their personal blenders make smoothies in individual servings with a top n' go lid. An all-inclusive Oster blender doubles as a food processor and acts as a versatile kitchen appliance.
