With the Oster® 6812-001 16 Speed Blender, you don't have to sacrifice quality for simplicity. The large capacity 5 cup Dishwasher Safe Boroclass® glass jar has been Thermal Shock tested so you can pull it out of a steamy dishwasher and safely make a frosty cold beverage right away. 16 speeds and 450 watts give you the power to perform for every occasion. From frozen beverages to dips, from sauces to smoothies, from soup to nuts, you can blend almost anything in this versatile blender. The "ice crusher" blade ensures you get smooth frozen drinks every time. Plus the pulse feature for precise blending control enhances functionality. Like most Oster® Blenders, the Oster® 6812 is made in North America and backed by the superior quality of All Metal Drive. Because the two pieces that connect are metal (instead of plastic), you get a more durable and longer-lasting blender that will function flawlessly, party after party, year after year. No matter the occasion, party for 15 or smoothie for two, blending is better with this Oster® glass jar blender.
