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.

Our Verdict

5.2 Multi-Purpose

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.

Pros
  • Dishwasher-safe.
Cons
  • Can't hot blend.
  • Makes clumpy crushed ice.
  • Struggles to fully blend fibrous ingredients like kale.
6.0 Smoothies/Protein Shakes

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.

Pros
  • Dishwasher-safe.
Cons
  • Struggles to fully blend fibrous ingredients like kale.
6.1 Ice Crushing

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.

Pros
  • Dishwasher-safe.
Cons
  • Makes clumpy crushed ice.
4.5 Soups

The Oster My Blend can't hot blend ingredients, so it isn't suitable for soups.

5.6 Professional Use

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.

Pros
  • Dishwasher-safe.
Cons
  • Can't hot blend.
  • Small capacity main jar.
  • Makes clumpy crushed ice.
  • 5.2 Multi-Purpose
  • 6.0 Smoothies/Protein Shakes

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.

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.

Okay
Unprocessed Almonds/Chunks
Yes

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.

Texture
Foamy and Leafy

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.

Ice Quality
Okay

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.

Almond Butter Cleaning
Difficult

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.

Differences Between Sizes and Variants

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.

If you come across another variant of this blender, let us know in the discussions so we can update our review.

Compared to other blenders

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.
