The Oster BCBG08 Blender although still available is now being made with a stylish new body BCCG08-R (red), BCCG08-C (chrome) and BCCGO8-B (black).
Don’t quote me on the following point because this blender is a new kid on the block, but they are also claiming it has quieter motor.
And here’s some more good news it not only comes with the same 8 speeds and 450 watt motor, it also comes with a lower price tag!

Oster blenders are well known for proving affordable and efficient blenders for home use. The BCBG and the BCCG blender’s have many features that make them a shining example of why Oster is such a trusted name when it comes to blenders.
These blenders have a cool stainless steel blade that is specifically designed to crush ice and a metal drive system built to withstand the rigors of crushing ice and general household blending.
On the base of the new Oster BCCG08 8 speed blender sits 8 easy to read speed control buttons, there are 4 slow speeds to choose from, puree, chop, mix and pulse and 4 hi settings, liquefy, smoothie, shake and ice. Allowing you to create anything from frozen drinks and milkshakes, to dips, sauces, soups, nut-butters and batter in seconds, and all at the touch of a button.
The glass blending jar or “cup” on these blenders holds up to 6 cups, and has been made with scratch resistant thermal Shock glass which means you can remove it from a hot steamy dishwasher to blend frozen drink without having to cool it.
It’s suitable to use with both hot and cold ingredients and as I’ve just mentioned dishwasher safe. The blender also sports a conveniently removable filler cap so you can easily add things into your concoction.
This blender does have a few minor flaws. One flaw being that the jar only has markings for one cup measurements. This means that you’ll need to use a measuring cup for accurate measurements.
Some people are put off by the look of the product. They feel the buttons (in a time when more and more companies are going to high tech touch screens) make it look cheap.
Cannot handle frozen fruit and large volumes of ice at once. You can prevent this from becoming a problem by adding more liquid and slowly adding the ice though the feed opening in the lid whilst the blender is running.
This blender has received a very good percentage of five star ratings on Amazon, scoring 102 from a total of around 223 reviews, averaging 4 stars overall.
You will find fancier brands than this 8 speed Oster blender but few will measure up to its success at anywhere near the same price range. The Oster BCBG08 Blender is feature rich and long on compliments from admiring fans.
You will be hard pressed to find a blender in the same class that has the same blending power, speed options, jar capacity and successful track record.
