Our Review of the Oster Pro 1200 Blender
For those that are looking for a 1-line review of this unit I’ll leave this for you:
It’s a wonderful blender for a home kitchen – it’s no Vitamix, but that is to be expected.
Now, on to our actual thoughts about the food processor.
To start with, just like anyone else that would be reading this, I did heavy research before making my purchase. To be fair, I had actually ordered a different one at first, but then returned it because when I opened the box, I could tell that the blender had been washed and repackaged. Needless to say I sent it back and ended up ordering the Oster Pro. I strongly urge everyone to do their own research about machines like these because the market is so packed with different models that sometimes it takes a while to cut through the noise and see which is best for your situation.
The downside is that there wasn’t a whole lot of information online about this Oster blender. What I was forced to do instead was break the blender down part by part, and compare the parts to the other mainstream blenders like the Vitamix and Ninja.
When you get to the real details of the higher-end blenders you’ll notice that the main features that you would want for home is: having an all metal drive, reverse action, high power, and has either a glass or stainless steel pitcher – no plastic. If you take a look at older model Vitamix units that are still common in restaurants, they mainly have a wattage of 850. This Oster Pro is actually a little higher, at 900, and if restaurants can deal with 850 then it should be good enough for at-home use.
The best part is you can easily order this unit online for around $130 dollars, which is a steal when compared to the Vitamix. If you’re looking for a unit that will fit under a lower budget then I would consult a guide like http://bestbudgetfoodprocessor.com/ because you will need help weighing the pros and cons of the different processors since they might have different features.
