Just a few days ago came into my hands a brand new shiny model 4655 Oster blender, blender glass of the classic American brand known Oster for so many years has been a leader in this category of small appliances. In fact many years ago when I still had not penetrated Vorwerk both Spanish households was common to see these mixers suffice in many of our homes. Almost 90 years have passed since John founded the company Oster John Oster Manufacturing Company, beginning of what in a few years become one of the leading manufacturer and marketer of small household enterprises.
My house was one of those and my mother had a beautiful and powerful Osterizer ® that his sister had sent him from the U.S.. I do not remember very well when, many years ago, was the brand that I selected for that formed part of the equipment in my kitchen, if I remember correctly, I think that was part of my wedding list. Years later, Termomix ® came to my house, and what until then had been a wonder with which we had developed many recipes I was relegated by the powerful combination of mixer, timer and temperature provided by the appliance Wortek.
That's when my trusty Osterizer ® was replaced and was relegated to the back of a closet. In that dark corner for years has remained yellowing over the years and only used in exceptional cases and stakeholders where your mini-glass not provided a utility provided by the Termomix ®.
The arrival of his new successor and warm days we had in Madrid I have been chosen to prepare the first gazpacho season with this fabulous old appliance and so recoder wanderings. To test it conscientiously, and unlike the process I follow with gazpacho with Termomix ® in which then pass through a food mill to remove skins and seeds, I decided to add the tomatoes unpeeled and ice for it to be cold faster. The result has been spectacular, up to two glasses of gazpacho and texture achieved is excellent, no ice or skins or seeds or anything that makes you shade the sweet creaminess of smooth gazpacho that I encourage you to prepare. It's amazing how this device moves and grinds the ingredients into the cup, the engine power of 600 watts and its stainless steel blades have achieved a fabulous result.
Besides the minor inconvenience of leaving their marks on my lower gums white encimare, I've only missed one rewind system that is always useful to keep more kitchen collection.
