is a brand
which has been used by Oster Manufacturing
for its line of blenders
since 1946. It is claimed to be the first mainstream brand of blender, though the Waring
blender was introduced in 1937.
In 1946, Oster had bought the Stevens Electric Company, which had invented the blender. Oster itself was bought by Sunbeam Corporation in 1960.
Osterizers tended towards heavy construction and motors. While this raised cost, many late-model Osterizers still function today, and are more powerful than a majority of contemporary consumer blenders.
