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.

Nice collections!
Fortunately, I've never been bitten by the bug to collect blenders.
I have an Oster that my parents bought new; probably 1970s.
And, just before Christmas 2022, I gave in to temptation and bought an entry-level Vitamix.
I haven't used the Oster in over twelve years. And, so far, haven't taken the Vitamix out of the box.
I'm making a concerted effort to eat more healthy though, and I would like to make the Vitamix a part of that.

I collect Blendtec and VitaMix blenders.Commercial models.My latest addition is not Blendtec or VitaMix.Its an Avamix-sold thru Webstuarant supply-Commercial blender that mimics the VM models really well.It is made in China-has a sound hood and uses 48oz and 64 oz Tritan containers-have a 64oz SS continer.Like this machine very well-its half the cost of a Vitamix commercial Quiest one-which I have.

The Ronson cook and stir is the best blender I have ever used. It has a two speed transmission, one is used when stirring, and the other when blending. It can stir and bring liquid in its container up to boiling and above. It makes the best puddings and gravy’s. It chops onions and peppers like a dream. Makes the best milkshakes.

I have,

six Oster blenders. Two John Oster and four Sunbeam Osters. I like the 400watt models just fine. The newer 500-600watt motors scream and vibrate too much. They also don't fold the ingredients as well as the slower 400watt machines do. Just my experience, I imagine the newer models would crush ice better! The oldest I have was my grandparents chrome beehive single speed toggle switch, no handle on vase.

I really like the Hoover ones in avocado, especially the one with the built in spatula in the lid.

Another favorite are the Warings with the clover leaf shaped ribbed jar especially in avocado. I liked that 90s Apple green model with the toggle switch too, I think it comes in different colors now.
