Oster BCBG08-C 6 Cup Glass Jar 8 Speed Blender Review: Oster is one of the best-known blender brands in history. Doing their thing for generations, they have created some of the best blenders in the business. With the legendary Osterizers, they have made a name for themselves, and they have carried that tradition of quality, simplicity, and durability up to the present day. One of their current blenders is the Oster BCBG08-C 6 Cup Glass Jar 8 Speed Blender. So is this blender going to be able to live up to the tradition? We’ll try to find out.
We may not know yet how great it does perform (we’ll get to that later), but the first impression one can be had about this Oster BCBG08-C blender is that it looks tough. And based on its specs, it is every bit as tough as it looks. The 2 pieces of the blender, the base, and the jar are connected by metal instead of plastic, ensuring a fit that lasts longer than most. In addition, employing an all-metal drive ensures that the working gears are going to last. Furthermore, the glass used in the jar is thermally tested. That is, it is ensured to resist extreme temperature changes, increasing the durability of the jar on the process. With all this equipment, you are almost assured of having a blender that can go on year after year. But can it blend effectively? Absolutely. The one that causes this blender to blend is a motor that is capable of producing up to 450 watts. Furthermore, it can switch into 8 different speeds (including a pulse mode) which give this blender the versatility to process different types of concoctions ranging from sauces to smoothies. A special ice crusher blade allows this blender to process ice perfectly. And to make it easier for dishwashers, both the jar and blades are dishwasher safe. And considering the price tag, (50 dollars at most), it is one heck of a bargain considering its combination of performance and durability.
Reviews are mixed about this blender, with varying opinions. But considering all opinions, the Oster BCBG08-C is generally considered to be a true force. First, stop, and perhaps most importantly, it is one heck of a performer. With its combination of a great blade and a versatile motor, it can plow through different types of food with smoothness and consistency. Also, people do like how the jar is ergonomically sound. It is durable, dishwasher safe, has great capacity, and is designed to make pouring easy. One of the weaknesses that it has is that some people said that its ice blending ability is not as good as it should be. This is remedied by placing ice little by little instead of throwing in everything all at once.
All in all, the Oster BCBG08-C brings a lot of bang for your buck. And even though it looks misleadingly cheap (with its plastic buttons), it scored well on the areas that count the most. Its durability is top-notch, and its performance is phenomenal and comparable to blenders that are much more expensive
