A blender thats anything but basic. Your life isnt basic. Your blender shouldnt be either. With this Oster 6640 blender you dont have to sacrifice quality for simplicity. The large capacity, 6-Cup, BPA-free plastic jar is lightweight, dishwasher safe, and break resistant. The stainless steel "ice crusher" blade does just that so you get smooth frozen drinks every time. And 10 speeds and 450 watts give you the power to perform for every usage occasion from frozen beverages to dips, from sauces to smoothies, from soup to nuts. Like most Oster Blenders, it 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. The competition just cant compare. No matter the occasion, party for 15 or smoothie for two, blending is better with an Oster blender.
