Timeless looks and powerful performance combine in one sleek machine. The Oster Beehive Blender has a classic toggle switch which controls two speeds and a whopping 600 watts of power. It’s got every blending possibility covered, from frozen drinks to dips, sauces to smoothies, and soup to nuts. The 6-cup glass jar has been Thermal Shock tested so you can pull it out of a steamy dishwasher and safely make a frosty cold beverage right away. The stainless steel “ice crusher” blade does just that so you get smooth frozen drinks every time. The Oster Beehive Blender is made in North America and backed by the superior quality of All Metal Drive. Because the two pieces that connect are metal (instead of plastic), you get a more durable and longer-lasting blender that will function flawlessly, party after party, year after year. Has a 1-year warranty.

If you are looking for an affordable smoothie-drink maker, I wholeheartedly recommend this Oster. It blends the ice, frozen fruit, veggies, and greens as well or better as our $400 unit. No issue with lack of power, burning motors, etc.
Other Oster Beehive benefits...you can purchase genuine replacement/additional containers in glass or stainless steel for $20 and plastic containers of all sizes for less than $10. Note that Vitamix and Blendtec containers run $150! And since the Oster blade and seal are easily removed and replaced, using, cleaning and maintaining the Oster is 100 times easier than its much more expensive counterparts. And though heavy, the glass container is just too cool. Over time, the plastic Blendtec and Vitamix containers show their age...not so with the Oster.
Regarding noise level. The Oster is no louder than our two high priced units.
Our Blendtec has the great preset feature. Press the smoothie button and it produces a perfect smoothie. The Oster has one switch, on, off, and pulse. For my smoothies I pulse a couple of times, then let it run for a minute or so. Perfect everytime!
Bottom line... Wish I would have tried the Oster prior to purchasing the higher priced units. I would have saved a ton of money. Oh, and the Oster looks retro cool!
Note that I purchased the Oster from Amazon, delivered free in four days! Cannot beat the Amazon price and service.
Update 9/20/2012: I continue to use the Oster to make two smoothies each day and it is working perfectly. I found that the order you place the ingredients in the container makes a difference. I found this sequence works best: 1: Liquid, 2: Protein Powder (if used), 3: Leafy greens, 4: Fruit/Solid Veggies, 5: Frozen fruit and Ice. I place items 1-3 into the container and run for 10-20 seconds. While blender is running, I chop up the "4" item(s), then I place place items 4 & 5 in container and blend for a minute or so. Works perfectly every time.
Update: January 2013
I continue to use this blender every day for my smoothies. I had to sharpen the blades this past week as they just were not cutting it (pun intended). Easy to do if you have a small sharpening stone. If not, a new set with ring nut and seal will set you back a whopping $5. Anyway, the blender keeps ticking and does a great job with my greens, ice, apple, carrot, frozen berry, protein powder smoothie. I now use a different sequence: water, ice, frozen berries, leafy greens, protein powder (pulse a couple of times), apples, carrots (blend). Works great! Still a very happy Oster and Amazon customer.
Update: July 2013
I continue to use this blender every day. The wife is also using it. Continues to work great!!!
Update: April 2014
Continue to use the Oster, almost daily (jump back and forth with the Blendtec). I found that not using carrots greatly improves the drinkability - smoothness of the smoothies. I also wanted to remark that though the Blendtec produces a slightly smoother smoothie, it contains a lot more air which leads to a bit stomach bloating, belching, etc. The one advantage of the Blendtec is that I can make a slightly larger batch.
I also used the Oster (and Blendtec) in a health seminar demonstrating making nut and grain milks. Worked great!
One other comment. When making smoothies, I typically dump everything in the container and blend. However, I learned in several smoothie workshops that blending the liquid and greens first, then adding the fruit and hard veggies works best. And I learned to not use carrots!
CONS: A few cons. First the most basic- the oval Oster label on the front of the blender appears to be a stick-on plastic part. A little ghetto but not the worst. Second, though initially this blender appeared to have a slight smell from the motor for several weeks it's not as bad now and we have certainly never seen smoke. Third, the blades are not the easiest to clean- even immediately after blending banana, avocado, peanut butter, chocolate powder and almond milk. Every single time I take the blade out of the glass pitcher, use hot water on full stream and have to get in there with toothpicks. Same goes at certain points for other smoothies. The blades are not well-designed in that regard. Finally, the most annoying thing is the noise level. Some people said it's like a loud hairdryer. I've never in my life used any hairdryer that would come close to how loud this thing is, and I use a hairdryer daily for 20 minutes. This sounds like a jet engine. If I push the start button down to first puree everything and then push it up to finish the smoothie it's a bit better than blending the entire time on the up position in terms of noise. But this thing is loud regardless. I have tried putting it on trivets to absorb the sound, etc. but nothing works. I used to cover my ears and turn it off with my elbow initially. Now I just walk away. So while it's an excellent price and makes a great product, there are a few cons to consider that may break the deal for you!
With my new Oster, the interconnecting parts are all metal. No way for the parts to melt. Also it has MUCH more power than the old blender. This one doesn't even notice ice cubes. So far everything I have put into it has not even been noticed by the motor!!! I'm guessing it is almost as powerful as the Vitamix blenders for a fraction of the price!!!
Oh, as an added bonus, this blender doesn't throw ingredients at the lid when you start it up!! I even tried starting it with the lid off and not a drop came out!!! Great job on the design Oster!! Love it!!
