Holiday Gift Guide: Oster Beehive Blender
When TheWife and I first got married, we recieved a Hamilton Beach basic blender. It wasn't all that great. The controls looked like they were straight out of the 1970's, a very similar design to the one my folks had when I was a kid. But more importantly, the pitcher was plastic. It didn't stand up to the heat and normal wear and tear.
Enter the Oster Beehive Blender. It is the holy grail of what we had wanted in a blender for years. A glass pitcher stands atop this chromed out beauty that can withstand blending hot liquids such as soups or hot chocolate. And it can go into the dishwasher. Rock.
Add some snap to your counter top this year with the Oster Chromed Beehive Blender. Not only will it blend the hell out of whatever you put in it, it looks good too. The beehive is a very retro design, but the chrome styling gives it a nice modern edge.
The selling point for us was the fact that the pitcher is glass. For so long we went through our kitchen life with a plastic pitcher blender, hating every day until its eventual demise under the stresses of hot liquids. But now, fate has come through for us in a big way with this chrome and glass beauty.
Glass, while it can be fragile and not react well to dropping, can withstand high temperatures of hot chocolate and hot soups that need blending. The glass pitcher can also be put into the dishwasher for easy cleanup. Just remove the blade and gasket, and off it goes.
OK, let's forget all that froo-froo stuff. Does this thing blend? Heck yes, it blends. There is a powerful 500-Watt motor down underneath that chrome, and Oster's All Metal-Drive to ensure power and durability. That's right, all metal. No rubber belts that are guaranteed to wear out.
This is a great gift to give or receive, so Put one on your list today.
