If your kitchen has been devoid of a powerful blender, it's time for that to change. After all, blenders aren't simply a vessel to produce smoothies; in fact, many of the newfangled devices are designed to make the likes of hot soup, baby food, and perfect purées. While some popular brands of blenders can easily cost you an arm and a leg, you don't need to spend a ton of money to get one that can do the same thing. 

For an affordable option, Amazon shoppers recommend the Oster Blender Pro 1200—and it's currently 25% off. The blender is complete with seven speeds and three pre-programmed settings including green/frozen smoothies, food chop/salsa, and milkshake. Thanks to the dual-direction blade and 1,200 watts of power, the blender is able to chop, grind, and pulse through even the toughest of ingredients, giving you incredibly smooth products at the press of a button.

The dishwasher-safe glass jar can fit up to six cups of ingredients, giving you the opportunity to make everything from green smoothies to puréed soups. Along with the glass jar, the blender comes with a 24-ounce smoothie cup that can attach right onto the blender to prepare smaller items to take on the go.

The blender has earned nearly 10,000 five-star ratings from reviewers who say it has "lots of power" and is an "incredible blender for the money." Even former Vitamix owners say this blender "powered through tough greens as well as frozen fruit, nuts, and seeds." 

"Why throw money away on one of those expensive smoothie blenders?" one five-star reviewer shared. "This one makes awesome smoothies, disintegrates ice cubes without batting an eye, and comes with a groovy smoothie cup that you can screw the blender assembly onto. Great value—and of course you can use it for other regular blender needs in the kitchen. This sucker does it all!"

"This blender is powerful and quiet," another user said. "It makes beautiful smoothies and sorbets and takes only seconds. The good engineering shows. I recommend this blender over a Ninja and it will compete quite well with the Vitamix, which is six times more expensive."
