Osterizer single speed "beehive" blender

Osterizer 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,[1] though technically the Waring blender brand was introduced in 1937.

In 1946, Oster had bought the Stevens Electric Company, which had received a patent on the liquifying blender in 1922. Oster itself was bought by Sunbeam Corporation in 1960.

Osterizers tended towards heavy construction and motors. While this raised cost, many early-model Osterizers still function today, and are more powerful than a majority of contemporary consumer blenders.[citation needed] Oster Platinum Face 60-Minute Timer celebrates 80th Anniversary on December 2010 to October 2011.
