The Oster Reverse Crush Blender is one of the most powerful and effective blenders that can be bought for under $100 in the world. With innovative dual direction blade technology that allows the bender to work in both directions, the Reverse Crush is a great value for money blender that can match the performance level of many blenders more expensive than it. With a surprising number of features that help you to refine the blending process to your exact liking, the Oster Reverse Crush Blender is a great option that is not going to set you back too far financially.
The Oster Reverse Crush Blender is a superbly designed appliance that is both convenient and attractive enough to fit nicely into any kitchen environment. At 8.95 pounds, the Oster Reverse Crush Blender is not a noticeably heavy blender, compared to some that can be well over 10 pounds in weight. While you may think that the Reverse Crush’s stainless steel finish and glass blending jar would add some weight to it, this is not the case and the Oster Reverse Crush Blender manages to keep its weight to a minimum. Because of this, you should find no problems in having to move the blender around your kitchen if you need to.
Similarly, the Reverse Crush has dimensions of 10.2 x 8.5 x 13.8 inches, ensuring that the blender is not an outrageously large blender to keep in your kitchen too. This makes the Oster Reverse Crush Blender a really convenient blender to keep in your kitchen, and you shouldn’t really struggle to find a place in your home to put this appliance. The stainless steel design comes with either a black or red finish, giving the Oster Reverse Crush Blender a really attractive look. The control panel of the Reverse Crush is made up entirely of buttons, all of which are lit up appropriately based on their function. As far as blenders go, the Oster Reverse Crush Blender is quite a sturdy appliance that you shouldn’t have too many concerns over regarding its durability. Thankfully, Oster have shown their confidence in their product with their generous warranties that should give you some added security. While the majority of blenders come with a standard 1-year warranty, the Oster Reverse Crush Blender has a 3-year warranty for the blender itself, as well as a 10-year warranty for the blender’s motor. This shows the immense confidence that Oster appears to have in the Reverse Crush’s durability.
For a blender that is so affordable, the Oster Reverse Crush Blender is packed with so many useful features that it’s hard to not admire the immense care that went into producing it. Of course, the most notable feature of this blender is its Dual Direction Blade Technology. This feature allows the Oster Reverse Crush Blender to blend effectively in both its forward motion and in reverse too, with the Reverse Crush’s 6-point stainless steel blades automatically recognising when to move forward and when to go in reverse. This is designed to help prevent jam-ups from occurring inside the blending jar, allowing for a much smoother blending process to take place.
Aside from the reverse crushing blades, interesting features on the Oster Reverse Crush Blender include its 7 variable settings that allow you to blend your ingredients at your desired speed, making sure that you can get the most precise blend possible. The Oster Reverse Crush Blender has pre-programmed blending settings for frozen drinks as well as for chopping food too. These settings are expertly designed so that you can achieve fantastic blending results with simply the touch of a button, and the Reverse Crush succeeds in achieving these results.
With a peak motor power of 1000W, you also know that the Reverse Crush will blend your ingredients in a swift and effective manner, helping you to get on with other things. Not only does the Oster Reverse Crush Blender come with a pulse mode, but you can also choose between low or high pulse, giving you an unprecedented level of freedom that you don’t normally get from many blenders.
Ease of Use
The Oster Reverse Crush Blender is not only an effective, innovative blender, but it’s rather convenient and easy to use as well. Firstly, it must be said that the Reverse Crush’s button-based control panel is very easy to operate. There are nine buttons in total on the Oster Reverse Crush Blender: frozen drink, food chop, high power, medium power, low power, high pulse, low pulse, on/off and stop. All of these buttons are clearly labelled with their own attractive colour light, and the control panel in general is simple to operate. When it comes to cleaning, you shouldn’t run into too many problems when looking to clean the Oster Reverse Crush Blender.
The Reverse Crush’s Boroclass glass jar is dishwasher friendly, so if you ever find yourself not quite in the mood to manually give it a wash, you can just stick it in the dishwasher and give yourself one less thing to worry about. Even if you do decide to handwash it, cleaning the Oster Reverse Crush Blender should take you no longer than a few minutes, and there appear to be no faults in the Reverse Crush’s design that make cleaning more difficult than it needs to be. In terms of noise, the sound levels created by the Oster Reverse Crush Blender tend to depend on what speed setting the blender is on and what exactly is being blended. On the lower settings, you’ll find that the Reverse Crush is quite tolerable with its noise compared to many blenders. However, on the more powerful speed settings, the Oster Reverse Crush Blender can be as loud as 90-95 decibels loud and can be even louder when chopping ice.
Overall, the Oster Reverse Crush Blender is superbly performing blender that comes with a pretty agreeable price tag. You’d imagine that a blender with innovative technology like this would cost more than $65-85, but the Oster Reverse Crush Blender defies everything that you would typically expect from the cost of a blender. While there are more versatile and more powerful blenders out there than the Reverse Crush, few can match its great value for money, and this could be the perfect blender for anybody looking for an effective yet affordable appliance for their kitchen.
