I have two Oster blenders, one an mid-1980s Pulse-Matic 16 speed, and the other a 1960s Galaxie Dual Range 8 speed.


I've had the Pulsematic since it was new, purchased at the now-gone Robinsons department store in Beverly Hills (closed in 2006 and demolished in 2014), and found the Galaxie on eBay, mint condition. Both are excellent machines -- indeed, real work horses.

P.S.: About Robinson's:


The architect-engineers were Charles O. Matcham, Charles Luckman and William Pereira, an L.A. star whose career led to the Transamerica Pyramid in San Francisco, the ... Los Angeles County Museum of Art complex and CBS' Television City.


Raymond Loewy and Associates, designers of the Lucky Strike logo, the Sears Coldspot refrigerator and the Greyhound bus, did the interiors.


For the landscaping of almost 8 acres, Florence Yoch and Lucile Council were on hand. They had designed gardens for "Gone With the Wind" and the grounds of Jack Warner's estate, today David Geffen's.

Ronson Blender the best?

How did you arrive at Ronson blenders being the best? Back in the day with CR testing was more rigorous and thorough. Ronson scored low. I admit that I never worked with one and there could be difference in technique in use to get the desired outcome in processing. Were they noisy? Ronson's look like they could compete with a Vitamix based upon their size. I read that the blade are dull. What one uses a blender to do can be a determining factor as to which is their favorite. Ease in cleaning would be another factor in determining a favorite as well--both the jar and the base. I use an vintage Oster Cycla-Matic with ice crusher blades as my daily driver. Very pleased with how well it works. I have also used Hamilton Beach blenders and replaced the standard blades with commercial rated ones that fit. I found the processing more even in consistency. I am sure other have their likes and dislikes for different reasons too.

Ronson blenders sound like they were well made with plenty of power.

Ronson Blender

You must have one of the models with a permanent magnetic motor if it is quiet compared to most blenders. My vintage Oster is quieter than my Hamilton Beach.
