Can you get a personal blender for under $25? You can with the Oster BLSTPB-WBL My Blender. This unit is so unique, that we had to give it a try based off of just the statics alone. And we were pleasantly surprised by how powerful and effective this is for the personal user.
Don’t get me wrong, it provides too little blending capacity for families, but it’s the perfect size for the personal user on the go.
Before I go into an in-depth Oster BLSTPB-WBL review, let’s take a look at some of the standout features that are offered with this model – you won’t be disappointed.
Oster BLSTPB-WBL Features
- 20 ounce BPA-free plastic sports bottle
- 250 W motor
- One Touch blending
- Built-in resettable fuse
- Recipes included
- 4-point blade
You’re health-conscious, and you want to start your day with a basic smoothie. If you match this criteria, you know that no one wants to pull out a full-size blender to do the job. Not only are full-size blenders large and noisy, they’re also a pain to clean. And the last thing you want to hear after a long night is a loud blender.
The MyBlend is perfect for fruit smoothies, and offers just enough power (200 W) to make the right smoothie for your needs.
All you really need is about 20 ounces of juice to get you through the day, and this is what Oster provides. This unit has a 20 ounce, BPA-free plastic sports bottle that is used as the blending jar. Just follow these three steps to get started:
- Fill your sports bottle with ingredients.
- Attach the blending blade to the bottle itself, and place it into the base.
- Start blending.
- Remove the attachment, attach a lid, and you’re done.
And since you’re actually using your 20 ounce sports bottle as the blending container, clean up this virtually non-existent.
In total, you’ll get 18 ounces of delicious juice out of this unit.
At first, I was little confused by how this unit worked. When you fill the bottom with ingredients, you’ll also have to screw on the blending blade, which acts as a cap. So, when you remove the unit, the blade is what stops juice from coming out. When you’re done, you simply unscrew the blending blade, and screw on the top to your bottle.
It couldn’t be easier, and it’s perfect for anyone who’s on the go.
- Perfect for fruit smoothies
- Virtually no cleaning, and easy operation
- Works perfectly for the single user
- Not as feature-rich as bigger models
Keep in mind that this unit is not as feature-rich as a full-fledged blender. It’s far less powerful at 250 W, but it’s far more convenient than a large blender. All you have to do is push the blend button, and you don’t have to fiddle with several different blending settings.
For making smoothies or shakes, this is simply the best personal blender we’ve ever had the pleasure of trying.
The BLSTPB is affordable, very effective and gets the job done better than a large blender. If you’re always running out the door in the morning and make up excuses on why you shouldn’t make a smoothie before you go, this is your solution to a healthier lifestyle.
