Anyone who enjoys smoothies knows that the key to success is in how well it tastes. Much of that depends on the product in which it is blended. The Oster Versa Professional Performance Blender is perfect not only for those who love smoothies, its multiple uses offer a variety of options for those who like to “get creative in the kitchen”.
The Versa blends and purees whole fruits and vegetables into delicious healthy smoothies, spreads, soups, dips and is great for making homemade baby food.
The Oster Versa BLSTVB-RV0 is simple to use, even for the most culinary challenged. It’s a bit larger and takes up more counter space than other compact models, however the end result is worth the space.
With easy to follow directions, one doesn’t feel like they must take a course in “Blending 101” to use it. Anyone who can push a button can blend just about anything in it. Even nuts. Preparing salsas and guacamole has never been easier, and there’s no comparison to the fresh taste.
What is also unique about this product is that unlike most traditional blenders, it offers a single touch operating system, which makes things convenient, especially for those who aren’t adept at reading product manuals while trying to prepare their food.
In addition to the convenience of being a one-touch operation, The Versa blender has pre-programmed settings that take the guesswork out of deciding proper consistency for soups, smoothies, dips and spreads.
This product also comes with two full color recipe books with a variety of healthy, easy to follow recipes. So finding something quick to take to the cookout is always within arm’s reach.
The Oster BLSTVB-RV0-000 operates on a 1,400W powerful motor with stainless steel blades that spin at 250mph, or 28,000rpm. This is the key to great blending.
When comparing this product to other, less powerful blenders, the desired consistency of the fruit and vegetables, especially in purees and cream soups, didn’t measure up.
Plus, the all-metal drive system and 7 year warranty ensure lasting durability and protection in the event a repair may be needed. Not all models offer a warranty that extensive.

It is a bit costly for someone who doesn’t use a blender that often, and it can be time consuming to clean compared to some of the smaller, less powerful models like the Bullet.
The Versa BLSTVB-RV0 is comparable in price and performance to the Breville models for juicing purposes, however it offers so much more. Most people found the single touch button easier to use than the “flip switch” on the Breville.
There are less expensive blenders and juicers on the market, however one would be challenged to find a similar product that has the same variety of uses, durability and functionality than the Oster Versa Professional Performance Blender.
