My thoughts on the Oster Versa Performance Blender

Oster Versa Performance Blender Review | In Search Of Yummy-ness

I’ve never understood the hype about Vitamix blenders. From my perspective, they are large, overpriced blenders that can make nice smoothies. I’ve looked up reviews on YouTube where people pulverize entire apples in a Vitamix blender, just to show how powerful they are. Well, that’s nice, but I don’t need to blend whole apples, or rocks, so why would I need a blender with that much power?

I know people who are hardcore green smoothie fans, and they swear by their Vitamix. I’m assuming that they do a better job at blending super-fibrous veggies like kale? I wouldn’t know, I don’t like drinking kale in my smoothies.

Up until now, my $100 KitchenAid blender has been good enough. I throw frozen fruit and juice in there, and it makes a decent smoothie. I can do the same with ice cream and milk for shakes, or even blend cooked veggies for soup. Why would I need anything else?
