Performance

Often, when a company designs a 2-in-1 kitchen appliance (e.g. blender + food processor), the product ends up failing at one of the asks. It’s common for dual-function blenders to be good at blending but bad at processing food, and vice-versa. However, this is not the case with Oster Pro 1200W. This 2-in-1 appliance performs amazingly well in both tasks. The 1200W power motor / 900W blending, together with the smart settings and dual-direction blade, bring out the best of this kitchenware. Unlike many blenders, it is capable of crushing ice and blending frozen ingredients.

Features

If features are one of your priorities, you will love this product. Oster has put alot of effort into designing a feature-rich kitchenware while still keeping the price tag as low as possible. First of all, we must highlight the already mentioned dual-function, the very intuitive control panel that gives you access to the Smart Settings™ Technology, which basically is 7 speeds, high, low, medium, pulse and 3 programmed settings. These presets are: Green/Frozen Smoothies, Food Chop/Salsa and Milkshakes. Most blenders only come with 3 speeds plus pulse, or even just pulse speed, Oster 1200W ensures the customer has a setting for each task.  On top of all this, there is also the Dual Direction Blade Technology, the stainless steel 6-point blade works together with motor to automatically kick into reverse to free jar jam-ups (see images). The blade is extra wide 3.5”.

“Pulse” means it will keep working for as long as you keep pressing the button.

Design & Material

Designed to enhance versatility, you can easily switch attachments by locking & unlocking them to the base. Attachments are made of plastic, stainless steel, metal and glass. Overall, it’s a very durable product, even the plastic is thick and resistant. The package comes with 3 different containers: 6-cup glass jar, 5-cup bowl and 24 oz. smoothie cup which you can easily carry around with you.

Ease of Use

This product does have a bit of a learning curve. However, it’s quick to learn as the design is intuitive and the control panel easy to understand. You may have some difficulty at first switching between attachments, but after doing it 3 or 4 times, you’ll master it. Overall, it’s a great fit to anyone, even if using a blender / food processor for the first time.

Price

At the time of this review the price tag was $89.99. We at TechChef believe this to be a great deal, justified by: a great package containing many attachments, a feature-rich system, and a great performance. If you are looking to buy a blender plus a processor, but you are on a low-budget, we strongly advise you to get this product and save money without sacrificing performance.

 

What do verified customers have to say?

“I have 2 favorite products purchased by amazon this year. This product is one of them, it is amazing. By far the best blender I have ever owned. It crushes Ice for my smoothie and it has a pulse button for when I want to shred foods not mush them, probably because It has a wider blender mouth and larger blade surface contact It does not leak, and clean up is easy- add a drop of soap to hot water and run through as a blender then rinse.”
