Just a few days ago came into my hands a brand new shiny model 4655 Oster blender, blender classical glass of the famous American brand Oster has been a leader for many years in this category of small appliances. In fact many years ago when I still had not penetrated Vorwerk both Spanish households was sufficient common to see these mixers in many of our homes. Almost 90 years have passed since John Oster founded the company John Oster Manufacturing Company, beginning of what in a few years became one of the leaders in manufacturing and marketing 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 United States. I do not remember very well when, many years ago, was the brand I chose to formed part of the equipment in my kitchen, if I remember correctly, I think it was part of my wedding list. Years later, Termomix® came to my house, and what until then had been a wonder with which we developed numerous recipes he was relegated by the powerful combination of mixer, timer and temperature provided by the appliance Wortek.
That's when my faithful Osterizer® was replaced and 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 his mini-cup provided a useful not provided by the Termomix®.
The arrival of his new successor and hot days we had in Madrid have been decided me 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 the food mill to remove skins and seeds, I decided to add unpeeled tomatoes that were ice cold faster. The result has been spectacular, two glasses at the top of gazpacho and texture achieved is unbeatable, no ice and skins, and seeds or anything overshadow the sweet creaminess of smooth gazpacho that I encourage you to prepare. It is amazing how this device moves and shred the ingredients into the glass, the engine power of 600 watts and its stainless steel blades have achieved a fabulous result.
Besides the minor inconvenience of the marks left his lower gums in my white encimare, I've only missed one recogecables system that is always useful to keep the kitchen's collection.
