Over the years of reviewing blenders; we have to say, the Oster 4093-008 is not the worst looking thing in the world. When you read the review, you will find that the blender gets the job done and looks darn good doing it. With the all metal drive, we do have a question, does it last? It is not necessarily a guarantee that something will last a long time, even if it’s metal. We must say this, however, it’s better than plastic. Far better.
Let’s go into detail about this product and see if it’s the cost effective blender that you have been searching for!
About the Oster 4093-008
Ease of Use:
Now the control settings are a disadvantage, but they can simplify the process for those starting out. Also, if you are using this blender just know that it is dishwasher safe and pretty easy the clean. The only knock on it is that blender is not properly de-burred; so you may cut yourself cleaning the inside by hand if you are not careful.
Motor and Horsepower:
The motor was rather surprising. We did complain it was quite loud a little earlier, but once you turn on this baby it really does the job. The 600 watt motor of the Oster 4093-008 is significantly more powerful of its lower mode, which only boasts a 500 watt motor. Now it’s nothing compared to the higher end models, obviously, however, for the reasonable price it is not a bad bargain.
Noise and Space:
This item does not take up too much space; however it does catch your attention by the way that it looks. It does get really loud though, although more quiet than other blenders. It feels very sturdy as you are picking it up and moving it around on your kitchen counter. Moreover, it does look extremely nice, very visually appealing, however there are some things to consider before buying it based on looks alone!
Options and Features:
We weren’t too amused by the limited speed options by this specific blender. We are only allowed two speed options. Fast and Really Fast. It would be nice to have a little more control. There were very specific blends that we wanted to perform but could not because we did not have the 10 or 14 speed control that we absolutely needed in order to create a successful mixture. It does come with all-metal blades, which is critical, because people who have been through blenders know how quickly plastic tends to go out.

Warranty & Service:
Nothing special to see here, just your standard 1 year warranty.There are some questions about the durability of these products as some people are reporting rust on their blades; making this “stainless steel” blade arrangement not so stainless after all.
This is certainly a decent blender. It is not the best thing ever made in the existence of man-kind but it will certainly get the job done. The thing we like most about the Oster 4093-008 is that it is powerful, albeit loud, and it gets the job done. We do wish there were more speeds including other than the two speed control to have better control over blend mixtures but regardless we still like it.
