Just a few days ago came into my hands a brand new shiny model 4655 Oster blender, a mixer of the known classical glass of American firm 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 John Oster founded the company Manufacturing Company, beginning of what in a few years became one of the leaders in manufacturing and marketing 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 United States. I do not remember very well when, many years ago, was the brand that I selected for equipment that formed part of my kitchen, if I remember correctly, I think that was part of my wedding. Years later came the Termomix® 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 one dark corner for years he has remained yellowing over the years and used only in exceptional cases and interested where his mini-vessel provided a utility provided by the Termomix® not.
The arrival of his new successor and hot days we had in Madrid I have been chosen to prepare the first gazpacho of the season with this fabulous old appliance and so recoder wanderings. To test it conscientiously, and unlike the process that I still have the gazpacho with Termomix® in which then pass through the food mill to remove skins and seeds, I decided to add unpeeled tomatoes and ice were so cold more quickly. The result has been spectacular, up to two glasses of gazpacho and texture achieved is unbeatable, no ice and skins, or seeds or anything overshadow 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 glass, the engine power of 600 watts and its stainless steel blades have achieved a fabulous result.
In addition to the disadvantage of small 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.
