How to Get The Most Alkaline Foods Daily: THIS IS REALLY IMPORTANT

Best Rated in Blender Replacement Parts

I accidentally broke my glass pitcher which I had for decades and used almost daily. I didn't want to be out any expense in purchasing a blender which had those inferior cheap plastic pitchers which I hate.

This is exactly like my old one: Now I'm back to making my smoothies, sauces, and other items of interest. Better than my original!

A search on Amazon found this item. It's definitely a different shape the picture on Amazon looks like my original; much straighter sides, very narrow base, clearly square top. It's also "basically" square at the top, but each side has a very slight indentation.

Well, I just used it, and I love it! The broader shape definitely seems to allow a better mixing vortex. Made the kids a smoothie and was very pleased - much better blending. A couple of additional items beyond the shape: My original bottom fit the new jar perfectly. Pefect replacement I received my Osterizer in as a wedding present.

Imagine my dismay when my husband brought me the broken jar and asked me if we needed to get a new blender. I was pleased to find that this replacement "glass" jar was still available and at a fair price. My Osterizer is amazing and everyone comments that they wished the new blenders worked as well as this.

I was pleased as punch to get this replacement jar. It is a quality product with thick glass just like the original. Looks identical to ones I got with my Oster blender I thought for sure I would be able to find these at the regular grocery store, even walmart.

I had chewed up the ring that came with my oster. I was making laundry detergent, and I had 4 mason jars to attach to the blender. On one of the blends I forgot to wash off the ring, and thats how it got sucked up into the blades, and it was toast. If you dont have the sealed ring then you pretty much can't use your blender. So this is seal ring is very essential to have, which is why I'm so surprised no store around me sold them.

So I had no choice to buy from amazon. This is the one you need to get!! I went through the normal review of buyers comments when looking to purchase a replacement sealing ring for our Oster blender. There are lower priced offerings, however I was more interested in getting the best quality and that's what this sealing ring is It is thick and pliable, very industrial strength ish. We've used in regularly 3 times a week , run it through the dish washer and it has maintained it's original characteristics.

It comes in a package of two sealing rings, so I have to find a place to store the second sealing ring that I will remember because it's going to be a long time until it's needed. This is the one you need to get I don't understand the good reviews for this item and I can't believe it I don't understand the good reviews for this item and I can't believe it is actually from Oster.

This is very inferior to the rings that were on my blender and others I have used in the past. They are thinner and narrower.

I have been using one light use since December and this morning it split while in use, and a second split is starting.

The contents of the blender went all over the counter top and cabinets. I would love it if Oster contacted me to explain why this quality is so poor, because the blender quality certainly is not poor. I would like to know how to get some of the older replacements. I have included a picture of the broken ring.

Never seen that before. I normally do not write a review, but was unexpectedly surprised by this product. This is the first product where the replacement not even original was far better in quality than the original.

My wife ruined the original base when she placed it in dishwasher and it fell to the bottom. But this replacement product is way far thicker. The top one is a replacement and the bottom one slightly cracked is the original. I was wondering that that thick base might make it unfitting in the blender.

But actually it fit more snugly than the original. Looking at this spare I wondered why cant Oster use some quality component like this. But I guess they cannot be spending so much on each component.

Fits like original base for my Osterizer speed I bought these when my original base got cracked. I had had the original base for more than 10 years and when I took it apart to get a new blade installed, somehow something fell on it and cracked it. Oh well, I guess it's a good idea to replace all of those spare parts together anyway base and blade since they are the same age.

I'm glad it was just the base that cracked and not the glass jar. This base fit on my Osterizer speed like the original. I counted the spikes on the base and saw that it was six like mine not five like on some other spare Oster bases that I had seen. I think that the base with five spikes would have fit but I'm happy with my choice because it's just like the original part. Fits Oster Fusion perfectly About 5 years ago my little brother spent what to him was considered a lot of money to buy me a really nice blender.

He was a kid and had to save up. I love the thing. It's an Oster Fusion 6 cup and i use it from milk shakes, margaritas, smoothies to salsa.

It has a nice food chop function that makes needing a food processor unnecessary. The base that connects the pitcher to the bottom broke, and i was so upset. I was sure i wouldn't find a replacement part since most manufacturers churn out new models so quickly. The people with the older ones get left behind if something breaks.

This piece is exactly what i needed. Great idea to save a really good product this is a great way to save your Bullet blender. This makes sense because as the product spins. It will not unscrew. When you are removing the original one remember to turn it in the opposite direction. You have to turn it to the right to get it to others. Lefty Loosey righty tighty does not apply here.

Product worked like a champ with no issues I used the replacement part as soon as i got it in the mail. Product worked like a champ with no issues. I work my bullet really hard with such tasks as grinding coffee beans, pureeing beans to paste for making delicacies, and for making various fruit with ice drinks. Plastic appears to be more durable than the ones that originally came with the bullet mixer.

This is not a bad deal when you consider that you now have spares for the part that would normally break with wear and tear. This part is also hard to find in any regular store or elsewhere online. Worth the Money to Extend the Life of Your Magic Bullet A lot of other people have written about how to install these, so I won't bother repeating that information, other than the fact that these are reverse threaded, so 'Lefty Loosy, Righty Tighty' doesn't work.

You have to go the other way. I will also echo that it's unfortunate that you need these, but they work like a charm! I wish I had known that the gears were going to eventually fail, because I wouldn't have torn up the two extras on my blade attachments I had in my original kit. Once that clear, plastic gear on the base unit starts to fail, it's just GOING to chew up the rubber gears on the bottom of the blade attachments.

I didn't notice the clear, plastic gear was torn up on the base, so I switched rubber gears on the blade attachments. Like new again These replace the gears worked perfectly, and the magic bullet is working again! There are two tricks to replacing these parts - and there are several videos on YouTube that show you how to do it. The first trick, after you unplug the motor unit, is that there's a small hole on the underside of the motor unit.

You stick a small flat head screw driver under there and find the slot. Then you take a rag and use it to grab the blade to unscrew it. It took me no more than 5 minutes to disassemble and reassemble. They Screw on Backwards from what you think. I thought I was in big trouble when I stripped out the machine.

Then I found these, great price and now I have spares. If you are having a hard time getting the old ones off, turn it the other way! In this case it's Righty Loosey, Lefty Tighty! To remove the one from the base, insert a straight blade screwdriver into the slot on the bottom of the unit to hold the motor in place while you turn the clear piece CLOCKWISE to loosen. You have to replace both gears for best results.

The rubber these Blade Gears are made of is much softer than the original part. The original lasted me several years, but these replacements only lasted a few days. I think my original assessment was a too harsh. I originally replaced the rubber gear on the blade but did NOT replace the hard plastic gear in the mixer. I discovered after I burned up a couple rubber gears that the hard plastic gear was also worn, although the wear was very hard to see. When I replaced the hard plastic gear, the rubber gear then lasted much longer.

So the moral of the story is to replace both gears at the same time for best performance. Buy this Oster product instead of fake knock-offs I originally purchased a bogus replacement jar for my Oster blender. It did not sit all the way down so you need to hold the jar with one hand to prevent tipping. Later, I bought this Oster jar and Oster blade kit I ended up with two lids, but not complaining.

The large clover-leaf design is easy to clean and the lid fits well like its supposed to. Good design and brand-name quality It's nice to see that Oster hasn't forgotten about its decades of blender-making and still designs its newest versions to be compatible with the older ones.

I recently bought a small new Oster blender that came with this round-cornered squat 5-cup glass jar design. Now I've got two complete 5-cup glass jars with lids through blades and bases, both made of top-quality Oster-labeled parts. I can use one to blend up a sauce while I use the other for a main dish or dessert, and they all go in the dishwasher afterward. Wide bowl with a floppy lid; watch out for mishaps! It's a wide blender bowl which works well to add a multitude of ingredients with minimum spilling.

Lots of room for your concoction to blend through, whether it's pancake batter, milkshakes, creamy salad dressings or a batch of pesto. Product highlights Single-serve blending W professional power.

All of it drained through without me pushing it through. I've attached photos of the blended Ninja 9. To show the texture, I took a picture of the blades. Instead of an oz cup, two oz cups should've been included. The oz cup is collecting dust high up in the cabinet.

For this reason, I took off 2-Stars. Interestingly, 23 out of the 30 recipes are for the oz cup. Katybug55, July 11, It was great but then When I first received the Ninja blender as a gift from my husband I thought that it was the best thing since sliced bread.

It is only been over a year and it does not work any longer. We as consumers need to spend our money with companies that are going to Bill products that will last over a year. Products should last at least 5 years, at least that long. So why keep putting money in a product that would only last a year or two?

It doesn't make much sense so I will not purchase another Nutri Ninja blender. I've had enough of being taken advantage of, no thanks!

Juicy45, August 24, Didn't come with the Large Book. It's a great machine. Noisy of course, but when you consider what it's chopping, it's great. You also have to stand there and hold it down. There's no "on" button. That was a Boomer.

AlwaysBets, June 6, So easy to stay on track with my health! Fast and easy to operate, clean, and store. I use non-fat greek yogurt, a banana, almond milk, peanut butter and two cups of baby spinach. I personally do not use ice in most of my smoothies. I prefer a very smooth texture. I think the ninja does a great job at breaking down the spinich. I add the liquids and banana first and blend for about 30 seconds, then add in the spinach and let it go for about a minute.

Im interested in possibly doing a juice only fast, I have a gluten issues and wanting to give my intestines a break.

I have heard masticating juicers are the best, but I own a ninja kitchen system now. Would it be possible to make great juices? What should I do to prevent this? Could I blend longer without it over-heating? The best thing to do in this situation is add a handful of ice. The ice helps break up the pulp better and also provides a better consistency.

It will still be thicker than juice, but more drinkable. I see in this blog post you said you used a slightly modified version of Dr. Awesome thank you so much!

My only question is can you use plain water in place of the coconut water? I have a Brita pitcher so perfect, thanks again! I have been juicing, but I lose all the pulp, which is really good for the body, so I ordered the new Ninja Mega System from Amazon, and when it arrived, I tried juicing in the single serve container. I got a delicious, thick glass of juice—with no pieces, just a rich, tasty juice. It is supposed to be thick!

You are getting all the nutrients. I am very pleased, as I thought I would have to use the blender to get decent juice, but this Ninja is quite powerful. I was wondering is there anything else I need to add in there..

I see everything else has some kind of liquid in it. Any suggestions would really help. Mail will not be published required. Currently you have JavaScript disabled. In order to post comments, please make sure JavaScript and Cookies are enabled, and reload the page.
