Oster Pro 1200 Blender Review
This powerful and versatile blender from Oster is a popular choice for many as the best blender for smoothies.
A huge improvement from other Oster models, the Oster Pro1200 features an extra wide base and 50% larger blade which allows food to blend freely with better access to the blade. Oster has been making blenders for over 70 years, so it goes without saying that they know what they are doing.
The Oster brand promises to give you performance, versatility and durability in all their products and they have most certainly delivered with the Oster Pro 1200.
Who is this product for?
The Oster Pro 1200 is recommended for anyone who is looking for a powerful blender for smoothies, baby food, crushing ice and much more. If you want versatility and power, this blender is for you.
Oster has catered to both large families and for the single person looking to make a single serving; it comes with a large 6 cup jar as well as a single-serving 24oz smoothie cup.
With 7 preset programs, Oster has taken all the guesswork out of using this blender, so it is also perfect for those who don’t have time to figure out timers and settings. I couldn’t imagine anyone not liking this blender.
The Oster Pro 1200 will arrive in box containing the blender base, 6-cup jar and the single-serving 24oz bend and go smoothie cup. You will also find an instruction manual and a quick start guide.
The Pro 1200 is also compatible with the Oster 5 piece food processor attachment; however, this attachment is not included in this particular purchase.
Overview of features
What makes this model different to other Oster blenders and other blenders in general, is the extra-wide base and 50% larger blade which allows food to blend freely with better access to the blade.
This gives it the ability to blend faster and smoother than other blenders. The dual-direction blade technology means that the blade works with the motor and automatically reverses when the machine jams, which frees it up and allows it to continue.
The smart settings technology includes pre-programmed settings for smoothies, salsa, and milkshakes so you can make all your favorites by simply pushing a button. It also has 7 speeds and different settings from pulse to puree.
Conveniently blend smoothies in the extra-large 24oz personal size smoothie cup, add travel lid and go or make smoothies for the family in the 6-cup Boroclass glass jar. Both are dishwasher safe for quick and easy cleaning.
The blender has been uniquely designed with the legendary Duralast All-Metal Drive which assures lasting quality and performance. The Oster All-Metal drive system is life tested to blend up to 10,000 smoothies and is backed by a 10-year warranty. The motor is a powerful 1200 watts and the blender crushes ice with ease, with or without adding water.
How to get the most out of it
The Oster Pro 1200 arrives ready to plug in and go, simply attach either the single serving smoothie cup or the jar and you can start blending your favorite smoothie or milkshake. If for some reason something is unclear there is a quick start guide also included in the box.
If you find the Oster Pro 1200 a bit heavy and bulky and are looking for something more compact and portable, then the Doctor Hetzner personal blender is a great choice. It has a 300-watt motor that runs between 23,000-27,000 rpm with 4 individual high-quality stainless-steel blades.
The container is spill-proof and the blender features a non-slip base. It has only one button for pulse operation. All detachable parts are dishwasher friendly and it is very affordable
The Oster Pro 1200 is one of the best blenders for smoothies in its class and price range. Anyone will be more than happy to have this powerful and versatile blender in their kitchen.
With the preset programs making it quick and easy to use, it will even appeal to those that are technologically challenged.
It is visually appealing and very well priced, and with a 10-year warranty on the all-metal drive, you can purchase this smoothie blender with complete peace of mind.
