Oster 3167 450-Watt 34-Ounce Juicer – i’m a great fan of oster

The juicer does a good job, and we were well satisfied with its performance, but my wife feels that it is hard to clean. We don’t feel that we will be keeping the juicer, even though it is a good product.

I have wanted a juicer for a long time and was too stingy to buy one. Finally my husband told me to go ahead and get one. I did all the reviews on jack lalanne and a few others. I studied the reviews on this one and bought it. It’s the best thing since fitted sheets.

Does a great job juicing everything we put into it.

I have only been able to use it about 6 or 7 times but i really like it. It doesn’t take up too much space so it’s easy to store in an underneath cabinet. No leaks or machine stoppages. I didn’t want to take the plunge and spend too much on a juicer if it wasn’t going to be used. . So this fit the bill perfectly. It isn’t troublesome to use, so it motivates me to keep juicing.

I just purchased the oster juicer and i’m so glad i did. Now it’s easy to make healthy enzyme rich vegetable and fruit juices. The oster juicer is easy to take apart, clean and put right back together.

About 18 months ago at my brothers request, i watched a film called fat, sick, and nearly dead. Currently it’s on netflix online service, but it’s usually available in various forms over the web. This film was a documentary about one mans helping to cure himself with juicing. He had a auto immune disease where minor irritations would create a large release of histamines and give him a bad, painful rash. It did not help that he was obese, out of shape, and in poor overall health. In the past he’d gone on some minor detoxify ventures, but this time he was prepared to try a major one. It involved a serious juice fast, two months worth in fact and then healthy eating afterwards. Last year i tried it for one month and lost about 50 pounds. It is strange, but for some reason, the weight stayed off, after i gained back a few water weight pounds, i’ve kept off the bulk of the weight since. Part of the reason, and i’m not sure why this works is that since the juicing episode, i’ve not really felt like seriously overeating at any time.

  • I was more satisfied with my old Oster juicer
  • Serves its purpose
  • Good price for a great juicer

‘juicing’ has become something of a craze in the last few years, and as such, i’ve noticed a lot more juicers on the market. Personally, i’m not too big into making juice out of fruits and vegetables, and it’s hard to dedicate the counter/cabinet space to one of these machines. However, if you like making fresh fruit and/or vegetable juice every once in awhile or you just want to give the ‘juicing’ craze a whirl, this oster juicer would be a pretty good option since it’s not too expensive, pretty easy to use, and seems to output a fair amount of juice. There are, however, a few things to note:first, it is somewhat loud. Not horribly loud, of course, but you wouldn’t be able to listen to the radio with the machine on, for example. The noise also probably wouldn’t be the greatest thing to hear first thing in the morning while you’re making your juice, especially if you have other people in your household that you don’t want to wake up. Next, it has somewhat of a cheap look and feel, mainly due to the white-plastic exterior. This may be a personal preference, but i much prefer hefty metal appliances, as opposed to plastic ones which don’t seem like they’re going to last too long – though to be fair, the blade on this oster machine does look pretty good, and it’s worked very well so far. Finally, there’s the cleaning. I counted eight pieces to clean total, which seems like a lot to me – granted, most of these pieces you can literally just rinse out.

I’ve had a juicer by oster for years and it has kept on doing the job without a bit of trouble. I wanted to get another one to take to my vacation home and was worried that the newer version would not be as sturdy or as strong as the older one. This product is light weight, powerful, and easy to clean. It spits out totally dry vegetable shreds – in other words it really extracts the juice well. Two suggestions to make clean up especially easy: 1. Don’t delay, rinse it out right away 2. Use a toothbrush and running water to quickly remove the vegetable shreds from the fine microscreen before washing it in the dishwasher. I am using my oster juicer in a place where i have neither a dishwasher not a garbage disposal and it is still an easy clean-up. I can’t believe this machine was so cheap at amazon.

Purchased for my mother in law and she loves it. She makes carrot juice everyday. Had it for about 3 months now and no problems.

I did a side-by-side comparison to the breville 800jexl. Although that means absurdly comparing a $70 machine to a $300 machine, i just couldn’t help myself. Here is what i found:1) the user-accessible parts and basic mechanics are extremely similar. The feed chute is almost exactly the same diameter, the waste bin is about the same, the cutting head is almost interchangeable, and the breakdown of parts for wash is also almost exactly the same. This leaves few surface differences. 2) material used for screen is different. Where the breville uses a true screen, the oster uses a round piece of stainless steel whose holes are almost indecipherable to the touch. Although i can’t really see a quality difference for myself, i wonder if they’ve taken this measure to keep pulp out of the drink, but then suffer a little for it by way of some motor failure. I only say this because the manual mentions quite a few times cleaning this (although it is often unclear that they mean this part in particular) often and especially if you hear the motor working hard. Obviously, the few motor burn-outs consumers have had have hurt this product’s rating.

Okay, in my adult life, i’ve had maybe four juicers. Each worked, with varying degrees of effectiveness. This juicer has them all beat. From two (2) gala apples, i extracted more than 2 cups of juice. Closer to three, truth be told. In addition, the plastic surfaces feel slick, almost teflonesque. Makes swishing them out with water very easy. Bottom line: efficient, easy to clean, nice price.

I’m a great fan of oster, i think is the best kitchen appliances brand ever, but with this one, they missed it, is not so efficienty, the handle you use to push the furit down, does not reach the bottom, so always some fruits remain there, also the trash container is not attached to the machine and everysingle time you have to move the machine you need to pay attention not to drop it. Definitely is nothing i will advice anyone to buy. . Of course now that i have it, is fine, but i wish i had not bought it.

Some have complained that this juicer doesn’t feel that sturdily built, and at first the low price did concern me a bit. True, it’s mostly plastic and not hefty, but i think it’s stronger than it seems. Time, use, and frequent cleanings in the dishwasher will tell, of course, but so far, i’ve had good results and no wear/damage. Speaking of cleaning, i love how easy this is to clean, especially the fact that they’re dishwasher-safe. Even so, i’d recommend rinsing (soaking if necessary) in warm water immediately after using it, though, to avoid stains and more stubborn sticking of fruit/veggie parts. So far, though, no problem getting the unit clean, and it’s easy to disassemble and reassemble, not to mention store away under the cabinets on the countertop. I like the compact design, even though the unit takes up a fair amount of real estate. No power problems so far with the fruits and veggies i’ve tried, though the motor is rather noisy (that’s the main reason for docking a star). Plus, the pulp seems wet enough that it seems more juice could be extracted from it, and if you try running the pulp back through, you’ll see what i mean. Still, running it through twice is not so bad when you figure in the low cost of this unit.

I’ve been very happy with this juicer. You do need to peel your fruits and vegetables and can’t just toss them in fresh from the store like you see on infomercials. It separates pulp from juice very well. In fact, i’ve never found any pulp that got through. It has never jammed and isn’t too loud. It’s quieter than both my blender and food processor. The one thing i love about this juicer is that all the parts can safely be washed in the dishwasher. A little pulp gets stuck in the filter almost every time that requires a hands on cleaning. I only wash the juicer parts on the top shelf of the dishwasher, away from the heat source, so i cannot say as to whether results would be different if cleaned on the bottom.

Been looking to update my 20yr old juicer that still works to a new one with the bigger food feeder so i would not have to waste time cutting up my fruit and veggies. Brought the jack lalanne power juicer deluxe at costo, and took it back two days later because it kept stalling and jaming while juicing one carrot. My old juicer has never stalled while juicing anything. I exchanged it for the oster #3167, and this one works perfect. May be a little louder then the jack lalanne, but so far it has no problem juicing anything we put in it. Easy clean up, and a good amount of juice. Also half the price of the jack lalanne.

Excellent seller 100% recommended.

I am pleasantly surprised with this juicer. I’ve been able to try several juicers recently and this one ranks right up there. It is a small compact machine, smaller than the other ones i have tried. The noise was the big shocker for me. I am used to my hamilton beach making a lot of noise, whereas this one just quietly juiced everything. It comes a part easily enough and cleans just as quick so another plus. The only downside i can see is that it doesn’t seem to produce as much juice as the other juicers i’ve tried. I used the same ingredients and there was noticeably less juice. So far this is my only downside. I haven’t used it as much as others who have commented on the motor burning up, so i will have to update later on after i’ve used it enough times.

Extra wide feed chute fits whole fruits and vegetables

Purchased as a gift – it is being enjoyed by the recipient.

I have been eyeing juicers for a while but they just seemed so expensive and complicated. But when i saw this one available i decided to give it a go. This juicer is amazing: easy to assemble, easy to clean and great juice. I decided to test it out by making a simple apple juice and let me just say this was the best apple juice i have ever had and it is fresh with no added sugars. I will be making all sorts of juices now. This juicer is a good price and a good product.

I have had an oster juicer for over 15 years and i decided to buy a new one because its mouth was too small and it was a bit labourius to juice. I have had this new oster juicer for a few months now and the experience has not been very positive. First of all, the machine keeps moving sideways when one tries to juice harder vegetables like carrots. This is rather inconvenient because one has to hold the juicer firmly in order to avoid this problem. Also, it appears that the rounded device used for pushing the vegetables through the machine has a defective design because large pieces of vegetables are frequently left intact and do not go through the machine. The container where the juice falls has a inside flap to remove the foam when pouring the liquid into a glass. Although it is a good idea to have foamless juice, the flap is built into the container in such a way that it makes it difficult to clean the container. The centrifugal screen is hard to remove from the machine once one finishes juicing. This is also a problem with my old oster juicer. I would have expected that after 15 years the company would have improved in relation to this particular aspect.

The disclaimer is that i got this free through the amazon vine program. However, i was just about to buy a juicer. My husband and i eat a mostly raw food diet and had been thinking about purchasing one. When i was offered this one, i was thrilled. It’s been months since we got it, and the truth is, we’ve used it only one time. This says something both about us and about the juicer. We also make a ton of green ‘soups’ which keep the pulp in. Why would i want to throw away the pulp??well, some people love juice. I do love carrot juice, and i used to buy it pre-made. I was looking forward to getting this juicer simply for carrot juice. But, bottom line, it’s just too much work. I don’t have a dishwasher, and cleaning everything well by hand is a pain.

At first i didn’t like that i thought this wasted too much fruit, but after a few tries i am liking it more. I had a juicer previously that cost over $200 and was terrible, and i was hesitant to spend so much again and not be satisfied so i opted for this one as it is a low price and the reviews were good. I have grown to really like this unit. It is a snap to put together and is very quiet when in use. I also like that you do not have to chop the fruits and veggies into small pieces as it has a large input hole. I typically juice 1/2 cucumber, one apple, 2 celery stalks and 1/2 lime or 1/2 lemon, and sometimes add some ginger or cilantro. The clean up is easy if you do it right away. I immediately add all parts to a sink of hot soapy water and clean after disposing of leftover pulp. I have had this machine for a month at the time of this review.

I finally fired up this juicer a few minutes ago. It cut through apples, carrots, and spinach with aplomb, rendering a surprisingly yummy drink. (i suppose not that surprising since i opted for an apple and carrot base. ) i remember thinking about getting into juicing many years ago, but being put off by the expensive juicers that seemed to be the only viable option. Now there is this affordable, effective oster model. I have to agree with other reviewers, the one off-putting thing about this juicer is the number of parts that need cleaning. I do not know if other models streamline this process, but there it is. On the plus side, they clean pretty easily, with the exception of the metal grinder component, which needs a bit of elbow grease.

I have a breville juicer that i use often at home but i wanted to get a juicer for a vacation home. This oster juicer seemed to fit the bill. Not nearly as big or powerful but good enough for weekend use. In use it works well, especially with softer fruits like oranges, apples, papaya, etc. Even celery has it’s juice extracted without much effort. However, tougher veggies seem to slow the machine down and i don’t get as much juice out of them as i am used to. As far as cleaning goes: i first tried the juicer out at home and washed all immersible components in a dishwasher without issue. However, the weekend house does not have a dishwater and washing the parts by hand is a bit of a pain. Other than that i like this juicer for occasional or light use. However, if you have never use a more powerful juicer like the breville or other more expensive models you might not ever notice any shortcomings in this juicer.

This is a pretty solid juicer but this week i cracked the inner clear circular plastic piece with a half of an apple. It can no longer juice as fruit just slides out the back now so i am sorry to say it looks like my juicing days are overall joking aside i will probably upgrade to a more expensive heavy duty juicer that can handle my daily juicing exploits. If anyone wants the extra pieces i have including an excellent working motor just leave a comment and i can ship it over to you.

Its very nice and easy to use and clean.

Always wanted a juicer but was reluctant to spend the bucks and allocate space in my small kitchen. However, this juicer is reasonably priced and i was able to find room for it. This juicer works great, easy to assemble and clean. The only negative i found was cutting portions small enough to drop through the mouth of the in-feed cavity. I would rather just shove everything down there at one time, but i don’t think that would be a reasonable expectation. I works good with both the hard items (apples, beets, carrots, etc. ) as well as the pulpy items (oranges, grapefruit, lemons, etc). It is great for making juice that is not readily available at the supermarket such as beet juice which some say is good for your blood pressure. The fresh juice is superior to the store bought bottled juice. Be advised that you can’t expect the same juice production by volume from all these items because some fruits & vegies just aren’t as ‘juicy’ as others.

Both the assembly and the cleanup are easy. The pulp is wet during the first run through, but i kind of expect that for a juicer in this price range. (wet pulp indicates that the juicer left juice behind. Many people will run wet pulp through the juicer a second time. ) however, i did feel that there was still a decent amount of juice, despite this. There is a slot at the bottom of the juice cup to help separate the froth/pulp. This works okay, but i find it simpler just to scoop the top. It isn’t as quiet as my waring pro. But it does juice slightly better, in my opinion. Of course, it also slightly more powerful.

My aunt has an oster juicer she’s had since the 70’s. I’d lucked out on an oster blender from the 70’s that i love. Oster is still a great brand, it’s just that everything is plastic these days. Nice large waste container can hold a lot. I knew i wanted to start juicing, but didn’t want to jump right into a big pro juicer. This works great for my needs and its easy to cleangood tip i read: have a sink full of warm soapy water ready for you when your finished to keep clean up easy.

The product lasts quite sometime for using it.

Sturdy all stainless steel filter for durability

This will be a valuable tool for creating healthy smoothies. It makes creating smoothies a snap and cleans up quickly.

The oster 3167 450-watt 34-ounce juicer is easy to assemble, use, and keep clean. I love the fact that most of the parts can be put in the dishwasher. I also appreciate being able to use whole fruits and vegetables. All-in-all, it’s a good kitchen tool to have if you like to drink a lot of juices. You will need some space for it. Check the dimensions carefully to make sure you have a place to use it and a place to store it.

This juicer has been absolutely great. I bought it for a 30 day juice fast, meaning i used it about 5-6 times a day for an entire month and have used it once or twice a day since then, 2 years later and it’s still going strong. I have had no issues at all with it, it juices anything i put in it, i cut most fruit up a bit so i’m not sure how well it would really juice a whole fruit or veggie besides carrots, which it does easily. The pulp is always really dry and i have been extremely pleased with my purchase so far.

. I never thought i would use, much less own, a juicer. But this machine is way coolit was easier to set up and run than i expected; easier to clean than i expected; worked much faster than i expected; and it makes great juicefirst attempt: cherry-limeade. Works equally well whether you peel the limes or not and handled the cherry pits and stems without any problems at all. Furthermore, my wife liked the resultssecond attempt: oranges, limes, chunk pineapple (from a can) and maraschino cherries. Had the juice for breakfast, then added some sweet italian sparkling wine for after dinner. I’m gonna have fun with this thing.

I was so excited to try this juicer. It’s my first time ever owning one and i thought of all the healthy juices i was going to make myself. Well, it’s good for every once in awhile, but i can tell you right now it’s not something that’s going to be used very much. Assembly was actually pretty easy. The instruction manual did a great job with the pictures and it was easy to snap everything into place. The actual container that the juice goes into i had to fight with a little bit to get it to line-up, but once i got the hang of it it started going easier. And dis-assembly is just as easy as assembly. All the parts are plastic but they seem to be heavy duty, so short of dropping the unit on the ground, i don’t see them breaking. As for the juicing, well as i said, this is my first time with a juicer so i don’t have anything to compare it to, but i thought it did just average. The first time i made something i used two pears, two apples, and a piece of pineapple i had hanging out in the fridge.

This is a great juicer for the priceif you’re looking for a juicer to mainly juice fruits, than this would be a great juicer for youit’s not the juicer for you, if you’re looking for something that would juice kale or greens. It does an okay job on those things, if you plan on just using it for greens occasionally. But, for basic fruit juicing, this is great. Works very easily, and is simple enough to put together and cleandefinite bargain.

Oster BLSTPB-WBE My Blend 250-Watt Blender – My 3rd time purchasing the blender – not because they

Works very well and blends the smoothie to perfection. Doesnt matter what you have in mind it will blend it up.

Makes morning shakes easier.

This blender is stupid easy to use. It works wonders with ice and frozen fruit and veggies. The cap itself seals well — both the blade cap and the drinking cap — and everything is super simple to wash. I use it to make my protein shakes in the morning/post-workout — powder, liquids, veggies, frozen fruit — and have had zero problems with it. Pretty strong motor for the portable, practical little smoothie destroying machine it is. The only drawback is if you were hoping to use it for anything other than blending the crap out of a drink — there is no on/off button on this machine. You press bottle with the blade cap into the base, and the second you apply pressure to lock it in, the blender goes full speed ahead. Personally, i have zero objections due to the ease-of-use, singular nature of my intended use, and the price tag, but it’s a good thing to know. Here are the specifications for the Oster BLSTPB-WBE My Blend 250-Watt Blender:

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.
  • Blend your favorite smoothie or shake right in the sport bottle and go; carry hook on the lid makes it easy.
  • 20 ounce bpa-free plastic sport bottle is dishwasher safe and fits in most car cup holders
  • Quick and convenient one touch blending using the powerful 250 watt motor with frozen fruit and ice crushing power
  • Resettable Fuse built in so in case the blender overheats, the motor will be revived just 15 minutes later and ready to blend up your next drink
  • Recipes included in the instruction manual

My 3rd time purchasing the blender – not because they break but because they are so handy to have at home and work.

The blender works very well.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • My 3rd time purchasing the blender – not because they
  • Fast and Easy
  • Five Stars

No issues so far after multiple uses.

I’ve only used the my blend for smoothies, but it is so perfect if just making one at a time. For years, i’ve not wanted to fool with smoothies because of the hassle of cleaning up a blender, but with this simple my blend, it takes me 11 minutes from walking into the kitchen to having the my blend completely clean and ready for another day. I noticed the complaints about the drinking attachment, but i have never used mine because i’d rather pour it into another glass and have the my blend all cleaned up and out of my mind. When you do it right away, all it needs is a good strong rinse.

Haven’t had any problems thus far. I typically do fruit, protein powder, yogurt and water. Occasionally i’ll just do pb and banana. It’s handled everything really well.

Very light weight and powerful. Works great and even shops ice.

I will never use my full size blender for my shakes again.

I got this blender to use in my hotel room while traveling. It’s compact, light weight, and most importantly is is quiet. I can blend ice at 2am in the morning and it doesn’t make any more noise than the shower. The motor base is well insulated, and the rubber feet are thick. The build quality feels superior to the magic bullet with better abs plastic. The only drawbacks are the length of the cord and the blender cup lid is lacking an air hole. The cord is the perfect size for plugging into a hotel lamp socket, so it doesn’t bother me. Add an air hole to the cup lid so i can drink a smoothie from it and it get’s 5 stars.

Oster 3905 4-Slice Retractable Cord Toaster – 4-Slice Toaster with Bagel Settings and Retractable Cord

I recently did a makeover on my kitchen and all the appliances as well as decor is black and red. This toaster is the best i have yet to see, it has so many settings which makes it so easy to use. The color is very rich looking and the retractable cord is a major plus.

I purchased this toaster over four years ago only expecting it to last a year or so based on the reviews. Well, here we are four years later and this beast remains a workhorse in my busy kitchen. I use it for both toast and bagels, and the only time i’ve burnt anything was because i had it up too high and left it unattended. There are toasters on amazon for over $100, but this little guy outperforms them at a fraction of the cost. I mean, come on, its sole purpose is to warm up bread. If you’re shelling out more than 50 bucks on something like that, i have a bridge to sell you.

Love that we can have 2 different toasted settings for my husband and i and also make 4 pieces at once. I appreciate the retractable cord as well. Here are the specifications for the Oster 3905 4-Slice Retractable Cord Toaster:

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.
  • Model_Number – 003905-000-000
  • Depth – 12.60
  • Height – 9.40
  • Width – 12.10
  • Weight – 6.0500

I always depend on oster to make a great product. I have been a loyal customer for 30 years. This toaster however, in my opinion has chincy plastic levers to push down the toast. Seems flimsy and perhaps not toolasting as the rest of the toaster seems in great condition.

Does the job, however, the handles that you push down to toast are flimsy and you have to push them down several times before they click to toast the bread. Aside from that the unit toasts both bread and bagels well.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Be patient!
  • Toasts well
  • loved it then

Nice toaster for the price since it has an option for bagel toasting which is convenient. I find that the bread does not toast evenly and burns on one edge even though the dial is adjusted.

This worked wonderfully as a fathers day gift since our old toaster is junk, i love the wide slots, you could put texas toast in there there.

I love the way the cord retracts when not in use. It browns my toast so evenly.

Black profile 4-slice/bagel toaster. It has buttons on both sides for bagels that lights up to let you know it has been set to bagels. Both sides have separate toasting controls. It has a retractable cord to keep excess cord off the counter top. It is deceivingly lightweight. It was packaged well and as toasters go was easy to figure out settings. Low end pricing on a middle of the road toaster that for the most part does an ‘adequate’ job for both toast and bagels. Sometimes you have to push the toast down more than once to get it to stay down, we aren’t sure what is up with that. The settings dials are extremely sensitive. As far as evenness of toasting it is about the same for bread and bagels and does an adequate job at this point.

Nice toaster but the push down handles are cheap plastic. Just 2 of us using toaster so if you had a family using this, the handles would soon break.

I have had one of these for many years. Very consistent to this day.

I bought a dualit toaster with some gift cards from my wedding. I’d heard this toaster was top-of-the-line and not to be missed. I was so excited about that toaster. I was heartbroken to find out for myself that it was nothing short of an expensive piece of junk. It would only toast one side of the bread, it often smoked and overheated, and it finally just flat out died only a year and a half after i bought it. I actually did the happy dance around the kitchen when i could toss it into the trash. I decided i was really going to do my homework when buying my next toaster. So i read umpteen reviews and i heeded consumer report’s reviews of toasters. Based on consumer report’s word, i bought their lauded haier tst850ds. I thought for sure i had finally found a winner.

Had the same toaster before, loved it then, love it now.

Oster CKSTSKRM16-SK 16-Inch by 12-Inch Oblong Skillet : Personal experiance with this product

The skillet works great as advertised, it is most easy to clean and it is pleasing to the eye.

I am happy with the product the only thing i dislike is the knob it gets hot when the skillet heats up it’s bearable but i’d rather it not be hot period.

The first one was damaged in shipping. Had no problems getting that resolved and they sent another in perfect condition. This is huge and great for cooking for a crowd. Love the detachable pan can also go in the oven.

Have used mine for years and no issues. Easy to clean, perfect for family gatherings. Wish there was a spoon slot, but other than that great. Oh and it really keeps things hot, one time i left the burner on when almost all the mac and cheese was gone whoops. Baking soda & vinegar later and it was good again, slight bubbling in the coating, but i really burnt it on there good, so not oster’s fault there.

  • Great product
  • I love my Oster
  • Did the job and looks good too

It evenly heats and allows me to prepate meals in no time.

Large cooking area and love the fact that it lifts off the base for washing. Also serves as a great deep dish for baking.

Practical and easy to use at all times.

The idea behind this product is sound. The fact that the pan can be used as a serving dish is great; however, to touch the small handles on the “serving dish/fry pan is to get a very fast finger burn. The handles are part of the heating surface. I think that is a design flaw. My main complaint is in the temperature controler. It appears to work properly as far as the temperature itself, however you need to be a contorsionist to read the temperature setting. The “off” is in plain view at the top of the dial. Unfortunately if i want to set the temperature i have to virtually kneel down to read the dial (which is at the bottom)i should also add that the temperature dial is flimsy (it appears fragile). I have used oster appliances in the past with no problems, but whoever designed this (or approved the designed) must have had a bad previous evening.

I can cook enough food in here to feed our family of 4 and have left overs. Clean up is so nice…do not have to any scrubbing, just a little soap and cleans off easily.

I had my pan for several years but when my granddaughter was getting married and there were showers, & wedding gifts to buy so i went happy buying all of the great appliances that i had bought for my own household over the years. Now i have to teach her how to use them easy wash-up just take the pan & put in the dishwasher and you are done quickly.

Used at thanksgiving for the first time. It looked good sitting on the serving table and performedup to promised quality.

We looked all over for something that would fit our needs. This skillet was what we wanted and meets all our expectations.

The greatest electric skillet i have ever owned. I love the removable skillet from the heating element making it easy to clean.

Oster 6803 Core 14-Speed Blender – Love this my grandmother wanted

Recently gotten into green smoothies. I very much enjoy them and people kept trying to recommend the vita mix and other 300+ dollar blenders. Well this one makes my green smoothies just fine. However i’m so into the blending smoothie game, i’m not against buying those blenders one day. Anyways this one blends fine, it’s plenty powerful enough, with a high and low speed setting, combined with the 7 blending options. I tend not to run at the super highest speed, cause it makes my drinks have a metal taste to them. If you want to make your blender last and run it high speeds, then pulse blend with the highest speed. Don’t run for a long with that speed.

Thankful for that so that i can make smoothies. This can do the frozen fruit which is easier to make the smoothies.

Bargain buy for the price i paid ($21)had the same one for 12 years.

I do not use this often and when i do it is for simple things. I have used this twice since purchasing it and have been satisfied with it function and ability. The product arrived on time and in good condition.

We got this blender because we needed to be able to blend small amount of liquid. Nothing we owned seemed to be able to do this. The oster totally does what we need. The only thing i do not love is that the blender is a little scary off the blender body. It seems very tippy, and i except one day we’ll have a big spill.

The blender i was using, a cheap hamilton beach that still worked fine, if slowly, but leaked around the blade bushing in the bottom. I tried this blender at my sister’s, and loved it. It’s quieter and blends my morning smoothies much more quickly than the old one. Very efficient, and i like the compromise of higher number of speeds and lower price.

  • Really Really Good Value
  • Very Rugged
  • Awesome . . .

I wanted a better blender after my last one (with a plastic jar) broke. I had it for two years, but never really used it, because it couldn’t chop ice at all. I’ve had my new oster for two months now, i used it all the time. Strawberry/banana smoothies for my daughter (one banana, one cup of cut strawberries, one cup milk, and 2tbs malt ovaltine) and homemade frappucinos (1 cup chopped ice, one cup milk, 2tbs rich chocolate ovaltine, and foldgers instant coffee to taste). Way cheaper and lower in calories anything i’m buying at starbucks or mcdonalds. I’m sure there are more uses, but it has already payed for itself with cheap healthy drinks. Ice is chopped, smoothies are smooth, my 7yr old loves this. (she chops the banana and pushes the button to turn it on)just wanted to update. I’ve had it for almost two years. I use it twice a day, and i’ve had no problems.

Works perfectly for making healthy drinks out of fruits, baby spinach, carrots, etc. I think it is not necessary to spend anymore on those ultra-expensive machines to do the same thing. Depending on what you put in it, your healthy drink might be very thick, or even a bit chewy. You just need to experiment with it. I found that putting in baby spinach, big purple grapes, fresh cranberries, some cranberry or orange juice, makes a wonderful drink. If you don’t mind the chewiness, put in some carrots (use the small ones, it is easier). You could also add peanut butter, banana, cuties, or yogurt.

I like the fact that the jar is glass. The blender does what it is supposed to.

My first blender when i got married was an oster. It lasted for over 10 years and was replaced by a kitchen aide blender that costed 5 times the price. I’ve disliked the kitchen aide since i took it out of the box. I can’t wait to make a smooth margaritas or smoothie without chunks of ice or frozen fruit left after blending with the oster. It’s a beautiful blender and exactly as described.

This blender is multi purpose and works very well. I would recommend this product to others.

This blender is too good and we are using it since 2 months. We are using it for making indian food.

We had an older oster blender. I bought as a gift for my husband. He likes it a lot and of course better than the old one we had.

Product: glass jar, 4 blade, rubber top, plastic access lid to stir or mix up with dual speed i call high or low. Workmanship: i have one at my house (2 years) 1 at my work (fire station) 1 month. I never seen any issues, all parts (except motor) easy disassemble for washing in sink by hand or dishwasher. Price: is right to insure oster will sell many of these. Shipping: was 100% top notch, it was protected with the original box boxed with a larger box protected and for some reason i got free shpping but it was fed ex’ed to me. I’m 100% recommending this oster and the seller also.

I’ve owned this blender for about 2 years with ‘rare use. In total, i think i used it less than 30 times honestly. The motor gave out and started smoking. I don’t recommend this product at all.

Have had this blender for 4 years now and it is still going strong. 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.

Strong ABS houseing

I’ve owned this for several years and it still works great.

I bought this for my son and he loves it. He uses it for everything that can be blended; which is more than i ever imagined.

Excellent blender , works really well and extremely cheap price. It crushed ice like there is no tomorrow.

Im using it daily and it works great.

I use this for my morning berry and sspinach smoothies and it works great, it’s a good blender especially for the price.

The blender was amasing very voog electronic i am happy to buy this item.

High-performance blender with 450-watt motor

 if you’re wondering about this blender, check out my video oster 6803 core 14-speed blender with glass jar, white.

I use it to make smoothies and it blend everything.

The glass jar leaks some times. I’ve checked the assembly and made sure parts were in the right order and place and screwed back correctly, but it still some times leaks.

I borrowed my mom’s vitamix for over a year, until she decided to go raw and took it back. As a consolation prize she gave me her 20 year old oster, which was adequate until i needed a part. After some research, i found it was cheaper to just get a new blender than to replace the part i needed. I was a little worried that i had been spoiled by the vitamix, but as a poor grad student – i wanted to find a more cost effective alternative if at all possible. This definitely fit the bill. If you just want to make a strawberry banana smoothie once every couple of weeks, then i wouldn’t hesitate at all. The good: oster has a solid reputation and this blender (and the 2 decade old one i inherited from my mom) makes me certain that it’s with good reason. For a reasonable price you get a glass jar (which makes all the difference trust me) and a blender that will more than meet the average persons needs. I use this blender almost everyday and my concoctions usually include any combination of frozen fruit, fresh fruit, some light veggies like spinach, ice and protein powder. This blender handles all of those like a champ.

We use it to make my wife’s smoothies. Powerful, not too noisy and handles ice with ease.

Every once in awhile i enjoy a protein shake; so every once in awhile i need a dependable blender. That’s where the oster 14 speed blender comes in. Just put in your ingredients, replace the lid, hold on and mix. ’tis best to use the intermediate speeds; if you go up on the high end speeds the blender tends to get a little. This oster oozes convenience. Easy touch push button controls. A scratch-resistant ‘glass’ jar that you can toss in the dishwasher. The 450 watt motor is more than sufficient (who in the world will be trying to blend their ratchet set, for example?). And although i’ve never attempted to crush ice, this product does have the stainless steel ‘ice crusher’ blade. Maybe it would crush a rib eye, but i’m not going to find out (although i’ve been known to do wackier things). So osterize your shakes, your snacks, your fruit blends, your veggie smoothies, your milk of magnesia constitutionals, with the oster 14 speed blender. Being mixed up can taste good.

Bought this as a replacement for an oster i had for over twenty years. I have kept the old one as it still runs beautifully and has a food prossesimg bowl so i can use them at the same time if two different functions are necessary.

Pulse feature for precise blending

Excellent for making food with curry. You can choose the thickness of the gravy because of the 12 different option you can choose (6 options, each can be slow and fast). It bears hot food too, not too hot but a little hot works just fine. Very easy to clean and very convenient to use.

Ok, but not powerful enough.

Love this my grandmother wanted it.

Works well as blender but don’t be fooled by the grate and shred buttons. It does not replace a food processor. As a blender it works well, well made. I trust oster products over the years. Have always been durable and long lasting. Only gave three stars as it is misleading to think it can grate or chop. Everything gets stuck at bottom and no uniformity unless you do it 2 tb at a time.

Merchandise was just what i expected,arrived quickly and safely. Will do business with this merchant again.

We originally purchased this blender 4. My husband uses it daily for smoothies w/ frozen fruit. It does a fine job of blending those. I use it for the occasional margarita; it crushes ice fine when liquid is also in the jar. I can’t comment on just ice alone because i’ve never used it for that purpose. 5 years the gasket and blade needed to be replaced. Since the blender is so cheap, we purchased an entire new blender rather than replacement parts (we figured the blender motor has to go sometime, but at time of replacement it was still going strong). We are 6 months into using this one and no issues to report.

Oster 6608-14-Speed Glass Jar Blender – Good price & good value

0 out of 5 stars osterizers rule, may 14, 2009i’ve owned blenders for decades. I started with waring but tired of their motors burning out and bought an osterizer 10 speed with glass container some 25 years ago. That blender finally died this week, the motor burning out (what a smell). Now, it was only 120 watts, so i suppose i was fortunate it lasted for around 25 years considering the punishment it got — i often made peanut butter in it from oven roasted peanuts, and it died making peanut buttersoon after buying my 10 speed osterizer, i bought an oster food processor attachment for it for $10 at a local store, and i’ve used that exclusively for grinding meat. So, in replacing my burned out 10 speed i figured i’d get another osterizer so i can continue to use this food processor as well as the two glass containers i have (i picked up an extra somewhere). I was pleased to discover that the present osterizer line accommodates the old containers, etc. Yesterday i made the rounds at the local big box stores and picked up the 6694 14 speed. The glass container is wider than the ones i had already, and i figure that’s a very good thing.

Perfect product, perfect delivery.

After about 20 uses, the plastic bottom cap broke. Unfortunately, it broke off when the blender was full of hot onion cream that it took me an hour to make. So i almost killed myself and had to clean the kitchen for half hour. It’s a pity because everything else seems high quality, engine, blades, glass cup etc. Update (6/14/2017): the company has started shipping blenders with thicker bottom caps. I bought one as a spare part for maybe $5 or $10. I’m talking about like, already 5 years ago. So i’m raising my review to 5 stars. Meanwhile i forgot i had written this review and i was astonished to see that not only it’s still around after seven years, but that people have actually replied to it to tell me that i should not use the blender for hot things. I am going to use the blender for hot things. Otherwise how am i supposed to blend hot things?.Here are the specifications for the Oster 6608-14-Speed Glass Jar Blender:

My osterizer lasted about 7 years. I’ve used it almost daily for most of this time. I started out with frozen fruit smoothies, but the last several years have been making smoothies sans icy ingredients. It has been an ear-splitting machine. If i’m hard of hearing prematurely, this machine is probably the cause. After a couple of years, the screw-on base cracked. I bought a new no-brand one which is sturdier looking and has lasted longer. After about 5 years, the gear(s) for my most used speed wore out and the motor would just stop. I’ve limped along on the other speed settings for about six months now, with the motor suddenly stopping occassionally. Last week i finally chunked it and bought a new oster blender, the cheaper and quieter.

It has a strong odor coming from the motor which can be offensive upon using it. My old one (oster) which i had for 10 years never dispersed any kind of odor.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Great Blender!
  • It has a strong odor coming from the motor which
  • Bottom cap breaks easily

. I’ve used this bender several times now and maybe it’s a bit early to review it but for $24. 00 at walmart you can’t go wrong. I think it’d be better if they used a low gear ratio for the low speeds but manufactures want to make money on the ‘bottom line’ so you don’t get everything. Anyway it works good with some help from the higher speed range to get things started, it’s easy to clean and it has a heavy glass jar. If i run into any problems i’ll update this review.

I have pretty much every modern appliance & gadget a kitchen princess could ever ask for. My only problem with my purchases is that colors change so i may not want to display them on the counter. Such was the problem with my original 10 speed osterizer circa 1969, a bridal shower gift from my mom, it is avocado green. I wanted to share the counter with my white cuisinart food processor, green kitchenaid mini processor, green kitcheaid stand mixer, & white mr. The scarry part is, that original is still working to this day, 36 yrs. Later, & still crushes ice to boot. It stopped on me last year & after i checked it out, it was just a little built up stickyness in the base. Cleaned it out —– good to go.Well, i bought this one in white & it’s just as wonderful as the original. I knew i could count on oster. There’s very few changes, & the one i love is the new shape—–wider glass jar—-no doubt they listened to the consumer—-that was the only thing i might have changed. This baby is a great machine—–but then ‘mom’ is still a good old gal too. Buy ‘the name’ in blenders, & i hope yours lasts 3 1/2 decades also.

Grinds up ice and everything.

I purchased this ‘used’ blender as an extra for our camper. It arrived on time and well packeged. It was in almost new condition, the original packaging just a little dented. I was amazed at how well it worked, it was clean and everything included. I liked it so much i kept it in my kitchen and put my original blender in the camperit makes great margaritas.

Oster BLSTMG-B 8 Speed Glass Jar Blender : Perfect Blender for Us!

So far this item has worked great and looked great. I use it to make smoothies and i haven’t had it for more than a few weeks so i don’t know how it is longevity wise but it seems fantastic for the price so far. Low price and great quality.

My wife and i got the cusinart blender ($100 version) for a wedding gift. We didn’t really use it for a few years and then she started making smoothies. After about a year of making smoothies (one a day) the mechanism that makes the blade turned was stripped. Needless to say that i was irritated that a 100 dollar blender was shot after a year. I tried to fix it but couldn’t. It was a stainless steel peice of junk. Point of the story is that after i did some research i decided to give this cheap blender a try (bought at walmart). It’s sad but this blender works better than the fancy cusinart. I have only owned mine for about 6 months now, but even if it goes out after a year, i could buy 3 more for the price of my last blender.

This machine is well worth the money -it is not too noisy -chops ice very easily -glad i purchased it.

I purchased this blender in green (with a plastic jar) from the big “w” for super inexpensive. This model replaces a 25 year old osterizer which was getting a bit weak. The old jar fits perfectly on the new blender. This model is rated at 450 watts and it is fairly powerful within its limits, it is not a vitamix.For what it is it is fabulous, i make 2-3 smoothies /day and this oster is perfect for the task. It crates a great vortex, it is no wonder why oster has stuck with the same blade design through the decades. It just works and you, as a consumer, know that it won’t be obsolete six months from now. Want an inexpensive blender that works?. Buy one of these with either the glass or plastic jar and be done with it.

  • It blends, but it’s not fantastic.
  • Loud, vibrates, but gets the job done
  • WOW! What a Great Blender!!

Oster BLSTMG-B 8 Speed Glass Jar Blender, 6-Cup, Black

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.
  • 8 Different Speed Settings
  • 6-Cup dishwasher safe Boroclass glass jar
  • 450-Watt of Ice Crushing Power
  • Stainless Steel “ice crusher” blade for perfectly crushed ice every time
  • All metal drive system for lasting durability

I use this product every day for a protein drink. Easy to clean and car for, also.

Crushes okay – speeds are good – easy to operate and clean – oster is known for good products – should last.

What do we really need a blender to do?. Crush ice, mix drinks, blend smoothies. With that in mind i bought this very reasonably-priced blender. It does everything a blender is supposed to do and does it well. It is sturdy and dependable. The jar is glass – no weird plastic chemicals to worry about. Don’t throw good money away on bells and whistles.

This blender is fairly good, but it is not the most consistent blender i’ve used. Sometimes it blends stuff quickly and other times i have to use a knife to move stuff around in it. For the most part, it’s good for the price.

Bought it to replace an older one i didn’t really like. I make fruit smoothies in the morning for breakfast, usually with frozen berries and bananas and it does a great job. It’s a little loud, and sometimes does dance around the counter a bit, but nothing too crazy. I just put a dishtowel under it and that takes care of it. My mom recently came to visit and tried it and loved it so much, she took it back with her and i am waiting on the replacement now.

I bought this blender in particular because i use the same one at work for processing quality samples. The little bugger gets used almost constantly, and has never overheated, burned out, or broken down. Most blenders at this price point rely on plastic gears to turn the blade, but this is all metal. As long as you make sure the jar is properly seated in the base, you really shouldn’t have a problem. And if, after making your third batch of daiquiris, you should happen to put it on a little crooked and round out the base, oster makes replacement parts. They also make a variety of blades to customize by usage. I use my home blender almost every day for veggie smoothies, and it has never failed me. It even grinds up raw carrots without a problem.

So glad i didn’t get an expensive blender. I make at least one smoothie a day with this baby and it works just as good as the expensive ones. Love this product and the price. If i need a new blade or ring i can order that off amazon for super cheap too.

I use it to blend cooked soups and to chop bread into crumbs. This blender replaces a 25 year old osterizer. I was disappointed that i cound not get as good a product as i had privious. Under $200, all were made in china and plastic.

I bought it not expecting much for the price but this blender works great. I çan’t complain of how it works crushing ice, it has enough power. Is a little light at the base for the heavy glass cup but is not a big problem for me. It looks modern and stylish but if you are someone looking for one to use frequently, you should look to expand your budget. This blender is made for light use, as it is common in my home, for sure not for commercial use or similar frequent use expectations.

This is a decent blender for the price. Jar is substantial glass, blade assembly is all metal. I use it mainly for protein smoothies. Tasked with something heavier, such as pureeing a soup seems to be difficult for it. It is extremely lightweight, so i find i have to keep substantial pressure on the top of the beast with my hand while it’s running or else it will hop off the counter. It does start to emit a burning smell after being run for a few minutes.

Our old blender was pretty worn out and couldn’t chop ice very well or mix up the drinks my wife wanted to make. This blender is fantastic and we got it for a good price. I like the heavy glass jar better than the plastic one on the old blender. It’s quite a bit heavier, but easy to clean.

Great blender, i use it for a personal blender when couples with a small mason jar. Much more powerful and sturdy than the little blenders you see sold for personal use, that “crush” ice until the blades quickly dull, or the motor burns out because you didn’t pulse the little blender motor just right. This is a real blender that will last, and is much cheaper.

Ill keep this short and sweet, i was looking at those $400 blenders wanting to finally get a blender that would crush ice for smoothies. After some research and not really having the money for a $400 blender i bought this oster on amazon. Ive made about 6 smoothies and 3 ice blended mochas, and it blends perfect.As good as the $400 blenders ive taste tested at the warehouse clubs. Im so glad i didnt waste the extra money, this is perfect. It comes with a large heavy duty glass jar, no leaking, sharp ice crushing blade, metal connector from the base to the jar, and a nice tight lid. If i have to say anything negative about this blender it would be the base control part. It has all the speeds you would ever need but it is made of plastic. When you push the buttons for different speeds it feels like its price.

If you want a product to crush ice this is it. Bought it for my roommate for christmas and it mixes drinks like no other. Great little machine for what we needed it for and it’s not expensive.

Probably not an every day, major use blender but it does the trick for making frozen drinks, etc.

Let me admit i am a little frightened of this blender. Some others have written of the noise it makes. While it is loud, it isn’t so much that as the sense that it’s getting ready for blast-off. I keep a hand on the lid because the blender vibrates and wants to travel, and i just get a bad mental visual of the whole thing blowing clean off the counter. This means two things: (1) evidently the blenders i’ve owned in the past were weak weanie-blenders and (2) this sucker blends – you can see it hurling the bottom ingredients upward immediately. Beyond that, i like the large glass jar, especially the wide mouth which makes it easier to pour out whatever you’ve just mixed and to get your hand in there to clean it if you wash by hand. Cons: the buttons are a little weird, very close together and kinda cheap-looking. They don’t satisfyingly ‘click’ into place, they sort of ‘mush’ down. Also, it’s hard to get the blade clean because of its design. I use a clean toothbrush to really get into the tight spaces on the blades, but even that’s not totally effective.

Does what i need it to do and like that it is glass. There does need to be a certain amount of liquid for it to blend right so i normally have to add a couple tablespoons water. You are not paying for a ninja when you buy this so don’t expect one.

Adequate for nutritious food preparation of pureed or blended fruits and vegetables.

Oster Ice Cream – It’s great for a cheap ice cream maker

I bought this product somewhere else, and i use it constantly. I get six servings of ice cream from each batch. I’ve not used the vodka trick (see other reviews), so it gets very hard after a time. I sometimes give it a quick zap with the microwave to make it easier to serve. The three stars are because of how hard i find it to scrape the inside of the bowl. The paddle doesn’t reach quite to the bowl, no surprise, and a fair amount of goodie gets frozen hard against the side. I have no idea why no one else has commented on this problem.

I had a slightly used ice creamer maker that i lost parts to when i moved. I am very happy with the new one. Oster makes some well made products. Delivery was much quicker than i expected. It’s was an easy purchase and the price was right.

Easy to use makes decent ice cream, my opinions of the down sides are that you have to freeze the bowl for 24 hours and it is extremely loud. Here are the specifications for the Oster Ice Cream:

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.
  • Oster Ice Cream, Frozen Yogurt, & Sorbet Maker
  • Sorbet maker, ice cream maker, Frozen yogurt maker
  • Fast and convenient ( no rock salt or ice needed.)
  • Designed for easy preparation (Wide ingredient feeder)
  • 1.5 Quart capacity freezer bowel ( Prepares up to 6 cups.)

As i was making my first batch of ice cream, i too was worried that it was not setting up as quickly as with my cuisinart ice cream maker but after running for about thirty minutes, it got thick enough for me to place in containers for the freezer. After about four hours i checked my ice cream and it was firm and hard like any other ice cream i’d made in my cuisinart. I purchased my oster at a fraction of the cost here, though. Had i purchased it for the $100 listed here, i may have been a bit disappointed :(. As for the ice cream maker, first batch tasty and free of all the unnecessary ingredients you get from store bought ice cream.

Gave this as a gift for my daughter’s 50th birthday and she was very pleased. Most of all, she wanted the color to be black, thanks to you and oster, her wish was fulfilled, thanks.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • U scream I scream WE all scream for ice cream
  • Good ice cream
  • Loving it!

Got this for a christmas gift and have been wanting one for a while. Used it for its inaugural run today and it performed perfectly. It reversed its paddle after only 20 minutes which is the indicator that it’s done, just as it’s supposed to do. Com/recipe/easy-mint-chocolate-chip-ice-cream/detail. Aspx?evt19=1 i adjusted the recipe for 6 servings so it would work in this 1. Only other changes to this recipe were i used 2 cups heavy whipping cream and 1 cup of half and half, plus after 10 minutes i added a tablespoon of vodka. Saw this tip while searching for recipes. It’s odorless and tasteless and since alcohol doesn’t freeze, it prevents the ice cream from turning hard as a brick in the freezer 🙂 i will update this review if need be. Hoping for many many batches of creamy goodness from it.

Like advertised, the ice cream was simply delicious. I’ll recomend this product highly.

My oster ice cream maker works great. I didn’t buy it from amazon but picked one up elsewhere on a whim. To get great ice cream there are some steps that must be taken. I freeze my tub in a chest freezer. After mixing my recipe, it cools in the fridge before i freeze it. If you want creamy ice cream, you must use cream, otherwise, you are making ice milk. My recipe will total 4 cups of liquid and 2 cups of that will be cream. This means you will eat a small bowl and be quite satisfied. Also, a trick i picked up on the internet is to add 1 tablespoon of vodka to your recipe. The vodka is tasteless and won’t freeze, keeping your ice cream from becoming a brick once it’s stored in the freezer.

I did not get my ice cream maker from amazon, but i’d like to give my (hopefully helpful) opinion of it. Honestly, i’m not sure about others, but i followed the directions on freezing the container for 24 hours. I poured my chocolate custard into the frozen container and turned on the machine. In about 20 minutes, i had ice cream with the consistency of self-serve ice cream from a dispenser. My kids prefer it this way and most of the ice cream was gone within minutes. A little was left over and is now in the freezer. One thing to know is the motor will reverse directions when the ice cream gets too hard to continue to stir in the same direction. This is to help prevent motor burnout. I’ve seen it do this and was relieved, because i’m afraid of leaving any ice cream maker for this reason. Cleaning the ice cream container is easy. Scooping out ice cream is easy. No messy salt/crushed ice mixture to deal with before, during or after. I have two ice cream makers: one big one and this one. This one is for new recipes i’d like to try.

Just make sure the mixture has chilled before you add it in.

It’s great for a cheap ice cream maker. I have made multiple batches of ice cream and they have come out great.

Researched so many ice cream makers and there seemed to be a pattern, they either worked or didn’t, no middle ground. So i chose an inexpensive one. One key requirement for all of them ($25 to $250) is that your freezer be zero degrees. Also all my recipes require the ice cream to set in your zero degree freezer after churning for a minimum of 4 hours. This one has produced some wonderful ice creams. Yes they are soft milk shake after churning but set up wonderful. Don’t know if folks don’t read recipes all the way through, or freezer temperature is not checked for accuracy or both. This is a nice unit and works well.

Made ice cream with the grands.

Oster 20-Cup Rice Cooker – Four Stars

This product is not as good as the first one i had for 11 yrs, this rice cooker constantly burns the rice, and if you cook vegetables it also burns the food. I am very dissatisfied, and would not recommend this rice cooker to anyone.

Frankly i was surprised to see that oster is still selling this model. Usually companies refresh their product line every few years. We bought this rice cooker about 5 years ago. It is simple to operate and makes a lot of rice at a time. As others have noted, it will brown the bottom of the rice if left on ‘warm’ once cooking is complete. We pull the plug once the rice is done to keep this from happening. You can tell that the cooker is finished when the switch makes an audible ‘click’ and the operation light changes from red to orange. We always make the same amount of rice, about 7 – 8 cups, using a ratio of 7 cups of water to 4 cups of rice. We originally used the plastic measuring cup that came with the cooker, but that became tedious so we just weighed the ingredients and now pour the rice and water into the teflon pot over a scale. 1lb 2 3/4 oz of rice and 2lb 5 oz of water.

I got this rice cooker as a gift last christmas, and have been using it 2 times a week for the whole year with no problems. Jasmine rice, and it turns out perfectly every time. I did give a four star rather than a five because if you leave it on warm for more than 20 minutes the bottom of the rice can burn- i make just enough for dinner- serve it, then unplug it to keep any little extra warm enough for seconds. Super easy- one of the best gifts i’ve gotton. Now that i know i will use it, i might save up for a nicer one, but this is a great starter rice cooker to buy to make sure you will use it. Here are the specifications for the Oster 20-Cup Rice Cooker:

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.
  • 20-cup rice cooker cooks both brown and white rice as well as a variety of other foods
  • Easy, one-touch operation: start cooking with a single button push
  • Automatic keep warm setting keeps food at optimal serving temperature
  • Locking lid forms an airtight seal and stays cool to the touch
  • Inner pot is removable for quick cleanup
  • Note: 20 cups of cooked rice and 10 cups of uncooked rice

A little bi9t of sticking and rice not completely cooked at times but i think she’s grtting better.

I gave a five star rating because i love this product. I wore my old one out because we used it so much. I recommend this product to everybody who loves rice as much as my family does.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • makes enough for us
  • This is a great product. It does exactly what it’s designed to
  • This product is not as good as the first one I had for 11 yrs

An asian family gave this rice cooker to us as a gift (they use the same model for their own use) and it works wonderfully. I’ve used it once or twice a week for several years and with consistent results throughout. I’d recommend this product to anyone who enjoys authentic asian ‘sticky’ rice.

Our family loves this rice cooker and would have given it five stars if it wasn’t for the fact that this was to replace the one that shorted out. These units seem to last for about a year based on use before something goes wrong with it. I gave this four stars simply for the fact that we use ours almost every day and that is a lot of use for a small unit like this.

I got this model in 2005 still have it today. It has never burned my rice. Although with its age the non stick pot does not keep the rice from sticking. I would say i cook 25lbs of rice a year, maybe a little more. So i have no complaints about the one i got. I can’t explain the problems others are having with theirs. Maybe the company’s quality control isn’t what it use to be, but the nine years of service mine has givin me makes me a fan and i am bummed that the newer reviews are so negative.

I am kind of shocked to see the other reviews on this. I have had mine for over 10 years now and use it 2 or 3 times a week. It still cooks perfect rice every single time. My mom got a really fancy one for christmas by another maker, and it is worthless. I have tried to cook with hers and it takes hours. My rice is ready quickly and perfectly every time. I am buying her this one and telling her to toss the other one.

We make alot of sushi and it does the rice perfectly. We also use it for everyday rice quite often. I’ve never had a problem of it burning my rice so long as i don’t leave it on ‘warm’ to long. I’ve had it for over a year and have never had any problems. If you are looking for an inexpensive rice cooker that still does a decent job, this is the one to use.

We keep buying the same oster rice cooker every 2-3 years. . We use it everyday, so it does wear out. If you leave it on warm for too long, then it will form a crust at the bottom, but it comes off very easily. After awhile, sometimes it under cooks the rice, but if left on warm, it will cook thoroughly. Overall, we have found this rice cooker very useful and dependable. We love the rice that it cooks.

Tends to burn on the bottom but the steamer is greati.

This rice cooker has no fancy feature but it has worked well for us. We bought ours from macy over three years ago. The non-stick coating is beginning to wear thin. But that is not surprising since we use it every single day. We use the measuring cup that comes with it to measure the rice (good quality chinese, japanese, or korean rice, no uncle ben) and put in water according to the marking in the pot. We get good rice every time. It is true that if we leave it at ‘warm’ for a while, a thick hard crust would form at the bottom. But for us, we usually unplug it as soon as it finishes cooking so this rarely happens. When it does, we would take whatever above it and pour in half a cup of water. The crust comes off easily after 15 minutes or so and it is still pretty good for eating.

It does exactly what it’s designed to do. My first unit lasted around 20 years and finally it passed away; the lever to turn on the cooker broke. So i bought a new one and look forward to another 20 years of perfect rice.

When in warming, it tends to make some parts of the rice mushy so i pull the plug.

Nice but don’t close completely.

I have had this rice maker for a few years now, and to tell the truth i was about to give up on it because the rice was always overcooked at the bottom of the pan. Then, i read some of the reviews on here and found the simple solution–just immediately unplug the machine when the light goes from red to yellow (from cooking to warm). I did that and got a perfect pot of rice in about 25 minutes or so. I am so glad i gave it another shot.

This has to be one of the best rice cookers we have ever owned. It cooks a pot of rice in about half the time and when always is perfect. I would recommend this cooker for anyone looking for a quality – reliable cooker.

This item stopped working within 7 months. I owned the exact same one and it worked for years. I would love to have this replaced or return for a fefund.

This rice cooker is awesome i keep buying this particular brand whenever the one i own goes bad.

When it comes to rice cookers, the more basic they are it seems, the better they are. We had a zujurioshi one and the rice would go bad in about a day even if you cleaned the lid everytime. The oster is usually good for about 2 days at max. Still a much better buy and for a lot less money.

Oster Chocolate Fountain : Five Stars

If i can figure out how to upload my video clip of this fountain in action i will do it. After reading, not only on this site, but other negative reviews (of course after i purchased this item from target for the same amount) i was terrified to try it. Was my daughter’s sweet 16 and i thought this would be a nice addition. I really breezed through the instructions and didn’t notice any ‘brand’ chocolate but did notice it should be melted with oil. However, while walking through bed bath and beyone looking for additional fondue forks i found a chocolate there specifically for fountains and no need to add oil so i took a shot and bought it. The machine is easy to put together and pretty straight forward. After i had it together all i could envision was an exploding volcano and chocolate all over the walls, ceiling and of course, myself. It worked wonderfully and it was the hit of the party. The only con is the clean up and taking it apart.

I seriously hesitated after reading the other reviews. My fountain worked perfectly. I did a trial run, toll house chocolate chips and canola oil melted in a double boiler then poured into the fountain — just as directed in the manual. Second run i mixed semi-sweet with bittersweet chocolate with canola. The bowl must be ‘locked’ into the base in order for the fountain to work — line up the marks and turn left. Clean up was easy, just a bit messy with chocolate on your hands — nothing that a sink of warm soapy water can’t solve, plus the fountain parts go in the dishwasher. The kids loved it — participatory food is so much fun.

My daughter attended a grad party a few years back and loved the chocolate fountain. Being good friends with the grad she was present for the clean-up and the mother of the grad offered up the fountain to the first $10. My daughter snapped it up and it sat in my craft room for a year. Then a year ago in preparation for her party we dusted it off and took it to 3 backyard bbqs. It worked perfectly every time. We chose our favorite dippers and thought we were ready. The week before her party i panicked and ordered a wilton. We realized we were going to have close to 200 guests. The wilton held more chocolate and in the end it was the right choice for us. We went through 10 lbs of chocolate.

I like this chocolate fountain. I followed exactly the recipe in the instruction to make the chocolate — just simple plain semi-sweet chocolate chips melt in microwave. Then pour into a pot of warm vegetable oil. I have used the fountain two times. One at my 6 year old’s birthday party. Another one at an early christmas party for angel tree project, which was also a dessert context. I won the kids favorite award. How could i not love the chocolate fountain?. Their eyes bright up when they see the flowing chocolate. One of kids even asked me if he was allowed to drink the chocolate in his paper cup.

Excellent seller and product.

Oster Chocolate Fountain : Such a convenient chocolate fountain. I used it for the first time on my 18th birthday, and was afraid that it might not work and i’d be screwed because i promised everyone a chocolate fountain. Fortunately, it really does make the melted chocolate taste even better.
