‘One Oster MyBlend Personal Blender, so many possibilities,’ this was my first though when I opened the box that Oster Philippines sent me. The first time I saw this product in a store so long ago I thought it was quite clever, but I never got the chance to try one of these because we already had a traditional blender at home.
But now that I think about it, the Oster MyBlend Personal Blender is a dream come true for those who just want to make a solo batch of fresh juice or shake without having to go through the hassle of cleaning out a giant machine. With the Oster MyBlend Personal Blender, everything happens right inside the bottle!
And this thing isn’t just good for juices and milkshakes, you can also make smoothies, protein shakes, or café frappes. Oster sent me a unit to review, and they’ll also be giving away an Oster MyBlend Personal Blender to one lucky winner so read until the end for the giveaway!
My favourite thing about the Oster MyBlend Personal Blender is how compact and portable it is as a whole. Plus, the sports bottle is so nice that you wouldn’t mind carrying it around anywhere. And that’s exactly the logic behind the Oster MyBlend Personal Blender: You can quickly blend your drink and then step out the door with it. Whether you’re headed to the gym, or work, or a picnic– actually even if you’re just relaxing at home– this is a great and non-fussy way to make a quick but special drink. It’s just my type of thing.
The Oster MyBlend Personal Blender is comprised of four parts: The base that contains the one-touch blending technology, the 20-ounce BPA-free sports bottle, the stainless steel blade that facilitates the powerful 250-watts ice-crushing action (for drinks that require ice), and finally the drinking lid.
If you will notice on this black portion of the base near the Oster logo, there are two white arrows that indicate instructions. The triangular one is where you should connect the bottle to the base. There’s a similar symbol on the stainless steel blender blade cap (you will see it below as I walk you through my first time using this), and then the thin arrow shows you the direction to turn the bottle to activate the blender.
Basically the steel blade that blends your drink goes on the same place the lid does in the end. You just flip it upside down. Really simple and straightforward!
The user manual this comes with also has some recipe suggestions, but like I said, drinks like these are all really up to your imagination! It is still nice to know that you can easily take the manual and get some ideas though.
For my first time testing this, I made a quick smoothie that’s comprised of things I love: 1 cup roughly chopped fresh spinach, 1/2 cup sliced frozen strawberries, a small banana, 1 cup milk, and 1/4 cup yoghurt to sweeten and thicken.
It’s really simple because you just throw the ingredients into the bottle, attach the stainless steel blade, then mount the bottle onto the base. Just match the symbols on the base and the blender blade cover, then twist to activate the one-touch blending.
It is one thing to read about the blending power of this machine and quite another to actually feel it under your hands. I was so so surprised by how powerful this thing was! It blended completely in less than 10 seconds, which was pretty neat! Voila! Instant yummy and healthy drink! And you can see how thick and luscious it is. Now just flip the bottle over and switch out the steel blades for the lid and this instantly transforms into a sporty bottle.
I tested the bottle caps (both the stainless steel and sports bottle cap) by shaking the filled bottle as hard as I can and there were no drips at all. Not one. Now I can just take this bottle and enjoy my drink wherever I please!
I can imagine the Oster MyBlend Personal Blender will be getting a lot of use around here, especially since I’m the type of person who likes to bring my water or drink of choice with me when I go out. I feel encouraged to start bringing fruit shakes to the gym, because this thing is incredibly easy to use and easy to clean, as long as you don’t get your ingredients dripping all over the base.
Big thanks to my friends at Oster. Now I can enjoy cool drinks on-the-go with Oster MyBlend Personal Blender!
