Just a few days ago came into my hands a brand new shiny model 4655 Oster blender, blender cup classic American brand known Oster has been a leader for many years in search 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, which start in a few years became one of the leading manufacturer and marketer of small household businesses.
My house was one of those and my mother had a beautiful and powerful Osterizer® that his sister had sent him from the US. 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 had hitherto 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.
It was then 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 your mini-cup provided a utility not provided by the Termomix®.
The arrival of his new successor and hot days we had in Madrid I have been chosen to prepare the first gazpacho season with this fabulous old appliance and so recoder gaits. 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 unpeeled tomatoes that were ice cold faster. The result has been dramatic, up to two glasses of gazpacho and texture achieved is excellent, no ice or skins or seeds or anything overshadow the sweet creaminess of smooth gazpacho that I encourage you to prepare. It is amazing how this device moves and crushes 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 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.
