Holiday cooking/preparing is around the corner and you need a new appliance that will blend/crush/puree as well as make soups, sauces, salsa and your morning shake? Look no further than to the Oster Pro 1200 Plus! An amazing 6-point blade can power through whatever you decide to blend and quite frankly its 7 speeds will more than do the job. This guy even has an extra wide base (I have to say it really made a difference with the humus I made today!); more room = better blending! The glass jar is super big (6 cups perfect for your next soup swap – I totally loved how convenient it was to do less batches) and is dishwasher safe. The jar separates from the blades so no worries about grabbing them and cutting yourself (like I have personally done in the past with other blenders). If you are like me and sometimes not sure how long to blend/puree; simply take advantage of the self-timer feature and everything you create will come out picture perfect! To be honest, I think we have finally found a product that can do it all. The sleek design will look great on your counter as well. For more information please visit http://www.oster.com.
