For someone that already has a Magic Bullet in their cabinet, I can’t say that I use this Oster blender often. There is however those times when I do need to use it and get to see how it works. Just yesterday, I made an avocado hummus that I needed the blender for. While it took some time to blend the ingredients together smoothly, I blame that more on the lack of fluid in the mixture and less on the actual blender itself.
The blender is extremely affordable as I purchased it last year from Wal-Mart for about $15. It was money well spent and as I find more uses for it, fully expect it to be something I continue to use for an extended period of time. One other time I can recall using this blender was to make frozen drinks and the ice mode worked extremely well at breaking up all the cubes. There was a few large chunks of ice still, but that is to be expected of most blenders.
I think this blender is ideal for any kitchen and even if you will only use it once or twice every few months, is something that is worth having around.
