Oster is well-known for producing quality kitchen appliances that are financially accessible to the general public and this blender is no exception. The Oster 12 Speed blender 6684 is a quality all-purpose model, useful for most of the blending needs in your kitchen, including things like soups, milkshakes, frozen drinks and more.
With its shiny black blender finish and glass jar, this Oster speed blender will also sit on your counter and look great. It matches any kitchen decor and so will not only be something you want to have around now, but for many years in the future.
The Oster 12 speed blender features 12 controllable blender speeds so you can easily harness its 450 watt motor. It also has a pulse option, so you can easily chop your food precisely as you want it without worrying that it will become a pulpy mess.
In addition, the drive system on the Oster speed blender is entirely made out of metal, so you should not have problems with it breaking down like so many blenders do. The blade is made of stainless steel, with the hope that this little blender will be able to chop ice.
Beyond its power and construction, the Oster 6684 has cord storage, so your counters won’t be cluttered, and push-button controls that are easy to clean. The jar is made out of glass, and is entirely scratch-resistant and dishwasher save.
While the Oster speed blender does not come with the most powerful model among blenders of this class, it is a quite one, and that can be beneficial when you’re wanting to blend but not make a lot of noise. In addition, the 12 speeds that you can control should give you the blending power you need even with the smaller motor.
This blender has quality construction, even though the outside of the base is made of plastic. The glass jar and metal innards make it more solid than most of the blenders in its class, and therefore more likely to last and blend for years.
If it’s sheer blending power you’re looking for, this blender is probably not what you’re looking for. Though it has enough power for most kitchen tasks, it will not do very well with large quantities of ice, hard vegetables, or making things like nut butter.
While the 12 speeds of blending options are nice to have, they are a bit of overkill on this machine. There is not that much difference between some of the speeds, and so they seem more like a ruse to get you to purchase the blender than a feature that you’ll actually use.
The Oster 12 speed blender – 6684 is a solid little kitchen blender. While its higher capacities, like chopping ice, are more limited than the company might want you to believe, it will function well for most normal kitchen purposes.
Its brand name and the company’s history should go far toward making this a top choice among all-purpose kitchen blenders.
