Oster 5838 ExpressBake Breadmaker


Owners of the Oster 5838 ExpressBake Breadmaker have mixed opinions of its performance. While many appreciate the physical features of the 5838 ExpressBake, such as its design and control pad, others have reported that it tends to mix ineffectively and...

Attractive design ; easy to use, ample features ; affordable price for horizontal machine

May not mix effectively ; touchy touch control ; automatic post-bake warming cycle may harden loaves ; included recipes may need to be refined

I love this handheld blender


I love this hand held blender. Its perfect for mixing something quickly together when I'm not in the mood to get my big stand mixer together. I've used this to mix almost anything you can think of. From baked goods to making my own dressings . I also...

Oster 2-Speed Handheld Blender blends like the big guys!


The Oster 2-Speed Handheld Blender may be small. But don't let that fool you. It packs a punch! It is really a strong little blender. I love making my own pasta sauces and this is the best little blender to use in the pot to blend my sauces. It's also...

I am loving it!


Oster 2-Speed Handheld Blender 2609, the most recent blender I got over online for a pretty decent price for the brand. I am satisfied if the appliance works for more than a year if I got it for less than twenty bucks, it has been just few months now....

Could do without.


This is my second Oster hand blender purchase. I purchased one for my mom after she used mine. It is easy to use and easy to clean. I use it for smoothies and shakes, and it crushes ice also. It is a powerful blender for its size. It does have a 250...

Budget blender, broke after six months


The Bottom Line: This Oster 2-Speed Handheld Blender is an average budget blender that is good enough for small blending tasks, but is not solid enough for frequent use. The plastic part of the blade piece broke after less than six months. Blending...
