Oster Beehive Blender Review

The Oster Beehive blender keeps things simple with 2 settings and an easy flip switch. It’ll look great in any kitchen with such a cool, sleek design.

The Oster Beehive Blender 4093 Classic Model is a sturdy, basic, workhouse of a blender. It does not offer fancy features, just 2 settings, pulse and blend. Most owners enjoy this simplicity and feel that it makes the blender less likely to break in the long run. The design is very sleek as well, and looks great in any kitchen. The motor may be a bit under powered, 500 watt as opposed to other blenders that feature 600 watts. So if you’re going to load it up with a lot of heavy foods and have a big family to blend for, you may want to get something more powerful. Otherwise the Oster Beehive blender is a great purchase and sure to last many years.

  • Good pitcher – strong, sturdy glass
  • Stable – rubber feet on the bottom keep this blender in place
  • Attractive – the design is classic, and elegant
  • Durable – built solid
  • Good Value – a well-built blender for the price
  • Precise Control – with only two settings, you get very accurate blending

The Bad

  • Lacks power for bigger blending jobs – 500 watts instead of 600+
  • Plastic base not as sturdy as rest of blender – this could crack as a result

Summary of the most helpful positive reviews:

Many owners report that the Oster Beehive Blender is very strong and durable. They like that it has a metal shaft that fits directly into the pitcher’s base. They also like how the blender looks and comment how elegant the style is. Most think that it blends very well on harder items like ice, which it turns to snow. A lot of people like the simplicity of a 2 speed blender. People who’ve had other blenders that offer more speeds feel that all those speeds are really not necessary, 2 is more than sufficient.

Summary of the most helpful negative reviews:
Some say that the Oster Beehive is not powerful enough if you load it up with a lot of food. A few report it breaking after a couple years and the plastic base cracking, which seems to be the weakest part of this blender.
