I had this for years and liked it, but I just melted the plastic head ...

  • Summary: I had this for years and liked it, but I just melted the plastic head while pureeing a pot of hot apples. If you're careful not to immerse this in hot liquids for too long (probably only 30-60 seconds at a time) you'll be fine. My next immersion blender will have a metal head however.

Oster 2-Speed Handheld Blender blends like the big guys!

  • Excerpt: The Oster 2-Speed Handheld Blender may be small. But don't let that fool you. It packs a punch! It is really a strong little blender. I love making my own pasta sauces and this is the best little blender to use in the pot to blend my sauces. It's also wonderful for smoothies and shakes. Including diet shakes and protein drinks. You can even mix cocktails. It's even strong enough to chop ice. It blends perfectly and evenly.

  • Excerpt: Oster 2-Speed Handheld Blender 2609, the most recent blender I got over online for a pretty decent price for the brand. I am satisfied if the appliance works for more than a year if I got it for less than twenty bucks, it has been just few months now. It is doing great, works well, easy to clean and store. It comes with a blending and measuring cup that is super awesome and helpful.

Could do without.

  • Excerpt: This is my second Oster hand blender purchase. I purchased one for my mom after she used mine. It is easy to use and easy to clean. I use it for smoothies and shakes, and it crushes ice also. It is a powerful blender for its size. It does have a 250 watt motor. However, there are many things that this tiny blender is not capable of. Storing this item has been a bit of an issue due to its awkward size. Also because it is in addition to my current blender, not in place of.

Budget blender, broke after six months

  • Excerpt: The Bottom Line: This Oster 2-Speed Handheld Blender is an average budget blender that is good enough for small blending tasks, but is not solid enough for frequent use. The plastic part of the blade piece broke after less than six months.

VERY NICE TO HAVE . . .

  • Summary: I bought this hand blender to replace a much more expensive one after reading the reviews on this one I decided it was just as effective as the one I was replacing. Although the one I had cost more it really didn't last any longer than the other comments said theirs (of this model ) lasted. . Why spend more to get the same thing right? I like to use mine most often to puree soups, make mayonnaise and whipping cream.

Better for smoothies than a typical blender

  • Excerpt: This is actually my go-to blender for smoothies. A typical blender seems to require much more liquid to crush ice. Not the case with this handy gadget (pun definitely intended) Easy to hold and clean up is a snap, it pulses at ice, frozen bananas, and other frozen fruit with ease. My particular version came with a bonus food processing container for salsa's as well. I've effectively replaced two appliances with this one.

AWESOME, INEXPENSIVE LITTLE POWERFUL BLENDER!

  • Excerpt: I never had a hand blender before and always had wanted one, I just never actually bought one. I received this as a gift last year from someone who knew I had wanted one. This little thing has A TON of power. As soon as you tap the button it just blasts off, the only downfall is sometimes the button is a little difficult to push (but that doesn't bother me at all) I use it mainly for soups and sauces.
