Dr. Carney and her husband Sean are big fans of the Oster blenders because they are very powerful and a fraction of the cost of most of the expensive high-end blenders. Part of the magic of the Oster blender is the steel shaft instead of rubber flywheels that are used in many blenders. There are pricier, more powerful blenders than the Oster available, such as the Vita-Mix and the BlendTec, which are amazing machines with a 400% higher price tag. The Oster blenders are used in the Carney household mostly for making 'happy sauce' which is a blending of some water with a tablespoon of walnuts and a tablespoon of flax seed and seasonings of your choice. Experiment with the seasonings such as onion powder, garlic powder, sage, etc. These sauces can be used poured on simply prepared root vegetables, salads, grains, etc.. to add flavor!
The Beehive Professional Series Blender is the ultimate bar blender machine. It is a must have for those who enjoy entertaining and being king of the bar. The black matted fingerless print base finish helps give it that rugged but reformed classic Oster design. The signature base is equipped with an upgraded commercial size toggle switch that controls and the simplicity of 2 speeds. The 1/2 horsepower motor is the most powerful Oster available. The revolutionary ice crusher blade blends ingredients to perfect mixes every time. The new an improved over sized rubber feet, under the base, not only gives the blender that massive look, but keeps the blender motionless during cycles. Last, Oster will outlast any other blending competition with the only all metal drive system in its category.
