The Oster MyBlend blender has a 20-ounce main jar with a unique sports bottle design, and it comes with a to-go lid to help you bring your smoothies on the go. Unfortunately, the narrow shape of the main jar makes it difficult for the blender to fully blend fibrous ingredients like kale, resulting in a leafy, foamy smoothie. It also struggles to crush ice and make almond butter, and it can't hot blend. On the upside, it comes in lots of eye-catching colors, so it's easy to find a color that matches your home decor.
The Oster My Blend is disappointing for multi-purpose use. It's decently well-built, and its 20-ounce main jar is ideal for making single serves. However, it struggles to crush ice, make spreadable almond butter, and blend leafy ingredients into smoothies. It's decently easy to clean by hand, and its components are dishwasher-safe.
The Oster My Blend isn't bad for making smoothies and protein shakes. The narrow shape of its main jar can push leafy greens like kale away from the blades, resulting in a foamy blend with chunks of kale. On the upside, it's easy to clean liquid messes like smoothies by hand, and you can even wash the jar and the lids in your dishwasher.
The Oster My Blend is acceptable for ice crushing. Its narrow main jar makes clumps of crushed ice, which may not be ideal for making frozen drinks on a hot day.
The Oster My Blend can't hot blend ingredients, so it isn't suitable for soups.
The Oster My Blend is sub-par for professional use. Its 20-ounce main jar isn't large enough for making large batches of food, and it doesn't have the most durable build. It struggles to make spreadable almond butter and crushed ice, and it can't hot blend. On the upside, its components are dishwasher-safe, so it's easy to clean.
The Oster My Blend is a personal blender with a small, compact design. You can easily store it on your kitchen counter or in a cupboard, and you can also remove the jar from the motor base to make it easier to store.
The Oster My Blend has a decent build quality. It's mostly made of plastic, which seems solid and durable. However, the plastic on the motor base transmission seems a bit thin, so it may not be very sturdy.
This blender comes with a tall, narrow main jar. We tested the blue variant, but you can get this blender in a variety of different colors. The jar is dishwasher-safe for an easy clean.
This blender doesn't come with an additional jar.
This blender comes with four sharp blades. They aren't removable, but you can put them in the dishwasher for an easy clean.
The blades are attached to the lid, which screws on the jar for a tight seal. This blender also comes with a to-go lid, which has an open/close spout for drinking, and a hook to attach it to your backpack.
The power cord isn't very long, but it should still reach most outlets. There isn't a stowaway compartment to hide the cord when it's not in use.
The manufacturer recommends that you run the blender for only a minute at a time, then stop the blender and let it rest for another minute before continuing to blend.
Note:The manufacturer claims that the blade's speed is 4000 RPM. However, because of the blue color of our jar, our tachometer light can't read the blade RPM, so we can't confirm the speed at this time.
The Oster My Blend is mediocre for almond butter. After about eight minutes, it produces a dry, crunchy butter with unprocessed almond chunks, so it's not the easiest to spread on toast. During the one-minute cooldowns, you may need to shake the jar to get the unprocessed almonds closer to the blades. The blender may also start to get warm to the touch towards the end of the blend.
The Oster My Blend is middling for smoothies. It makes a foamy, leafy smoothie with lots of unblended kale bits in around three minutes, following the manufacturer's recommendation that we only run the blender for a minute at a time and let it rest for another minute. Also, the narrow main jar keeps fibrous ingredients like kale from reaching the blades, so you may have to shake the jar to get them incorporated. If you're looking for a small personal blender that makes a better smoothie, take a look at the BlendJet 2.
This blender doesn't have an additional jar.
The Oster My Blend is acceptable for crushed ice. The main jar is quite narrow, and the crushed ice tends to clump together. When you remove the ice from the jar, it still has a clumpy texture that may not be ideal for frozen drinks.
This blender doesn't have any programs or modes.
The Oster My Blend is decently easy to clean. For liquid messes like smoothies, you just need soap and water to clean it. However, with stickier messes like almond butter, you may need to use a long brush to clean out stuck-on messes near the blade assembly base. The jar and the lid are also dishwasher-safe.
This blender doesn't come with any extra features. It can't hot blend, so you can't use it to make soups and sauces.
The Oster MyBlend comes in lots of different color variants, including Blue, Pink, Orange, Green, Red, Silver, and Black. We tested the Blue variant, and you can see the label for the model we tested here. We expect the other color variants to perform similarly.

The Oster MyBlend is a personal blender that comes in lots of eye-catching colors. Its main jar is designed to be a sports bottle, so you can make a smoothie, remove it from the motor base, screw on a to-go lid, and bring it with you to work. However, due to its narrow shape, the blender struggles to fully blend fibrous ingredients, make almond butter, and crush ice.

The Oster MyBlend is better for multi-purpose use than the Magic Bullet Mini. The Oster is better-built, and it can crush ice, unlike the Magic Bullet. It also does a better job making almond butter, though it still doesn't produce a smooth blend. However, the Magic Bullet makes a better-blended smoothie, and it comes with an additional jar for making dips and salsas.
The BlendJet 2 is a better blender for most uses than the Oster MyBlend. The BlendJet 2 has a better build quality, is easier to clean, and makes much better smoothies and crushed ice. On the other hand, the Oster's jar has a bigger capacity, and it isn't battery-powered, which some may prefer.
While the Oster MyBlend offers a more versatile performance than the Magic Bullet Blender MBR-1101, you may prefer one over the other. The Oster feels more sturdy, it can make crushed ice with an okay texture, and it comes with a 20-ounce jar. However, the Magic Bullet makes better smoothies and almond butter. It also comes with three differently-sized jars that some users may prefer.
