      Very powerful. Fast. Uniform blend.

      By Common Good Chef

      from Downeast, Maine

      Comments about Oster 2 Speed Classic Beehive Blender:

      This replaces a much older similar blender. It has 2 speeds. It can be switched onto HIGH and stays running so long as the switch isn't returned to OFF. However, on LOW setting, the switch needs to be held in that position, otherwise it returns to OFF. There lots of times that I want a blender to stay on LOW while I do other things, and even when breaking an egg into the jar. I bake popovers frequently, and the batter should be mixed on LOW. Please give us that option.

      Best Blender Out There!

      By Christabella

      from Undisclosed

      Comments about Oster 2 Speed Classic Beehive Blender:

      I have had an Oster all my life; my mother had one. Twenty years ago I purchased my own and now I just purchased one for my son. I would go for any other blender. I am glad I found the one that looks like mine with the glass container.

          Replaced an older Oster

          By Tinker

          from Petaluma, CA, United States

          Comments about Oster 2 Speed Classic Beehive Blender:

          It's great, load it all the way to the top and nothing will stop it. Makes two 16 oz smoothies one for me and one for my wife, twice a day. It makes a lot of noise but really does the job. I did change the blades to the one with six blades, would recommend that it come that way. Have really enjoyed using it, easy to clean. A little soap and water in it and turn it on, done.

          I have had mine for 15+ years. Works beautifully today. The blade has never needed sharpening and the glass container is dishwasher safe and shatter proof. I love it and it's 15 plus years old going strong today.
