Bella Rocket Blender 12-Piece Set vs Oster My Blend

Overall Verdict

The BELLA Rocket was well capable of producing smooth protein shakes in our tests. There were a small number of partially intact berries and almonds after straining, but we thought those could add a delightful textural element. The blade design, motor strength, and blending speed of the BELLA allowed it to create quick and smooth smoothies, as well.

The Oster My Blend is also a competent machine for the price, but compared with the BELLA, it lacks the finesse and speed of the BELLA. When it came to processing denser foods, however, both blenders couldn’t be up to the tasks, resulting in  somewhat inadequate mixtures.

The overall design of the two products also varies considerably, with the BELLA being functional but unremarkable in terms of aesthetics. In contrast, the Oster blender places a greater emphasis on style and design, making it a preferred choice for consumers seeking a more premium-looking unit.

In summary, the Oster blender is the better option for consumers who prioritize design and aesthetics. However, for those who value efficiency and practicality, the BELLA blender provides better bang for the buck, particularly given its range of practical accessories.

Pros & Cons

  • Adequate build quality allows for reliable performance.
  • The motor is less likely to overheat like some of its rivals.
  • It’s pretty good at processing frozen fruits and raw nuts. 
  • Its ease of use provides a satisfying blending experience.
  • It is affordable but better than its competitors at blending frozen fruits.
  • The light-duty motor works consistently for basic tasks like making smoothies, protein shakes, whole-food sauces, and more. 
  • Its usability allows for an enjoyable blending experience. 
  • There is a built-in, resettable fuse, which will revive the motor in 15 minutes if it overheats.
  • It may not add any aesthetic interest to your kitchen due to its inspired design.
  • The ability to liquify fibrous greens is compromised by the low price. 
  • The resting period between blending intervals is longer than average, taking up to 3 minutes.
  • The blending jar is somewhat difficult to clean due to its narrow design.
  • The small circumference of the jar’s opening makes adding powders and fruits quite messy. 
  • This blender is not ideal for quick fibrous meals.
