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.
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.
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.

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.

Excerpt: We got this when I was pregnant with my first baby so I could get some nutrition in form of smoothies. It has become my primary blender/mixer because it is so easy to clean. I don't ever use my large blender anymore. I even made my daughter's baby food with this!
Summary: Returned this item. The switch is recessed beneath a soft rubber covering. There must have been something wrong because you had to search with your finger to locate where to depress to make it work. I picked it because it had variable speeds which also made the blender heavier.
