The plastic jar replaces the glass jar that is standard on most blenders. It is much lighter in weight, safer to handle and obviously won't break if dropped.
If it were up to me the plastic jar would be the standard and the glass jar would be an option.
Jar fits the blender that I have had for ten plus years. Price for replacement better than purchasing a new unit.
Great replacement for the glass jar I broke (twice). Now if it tips in the sink it won't crack. Love that! I like that it has a 6 cup capacity for our family of seven. The only thing I don't love is I readjust several times to make sure it is tightened enough. I place it on the base and it doesn't fit right so I turn it a little tighter each time I use it. I am sure I will learn how far to turn it eventually.
Purchased this plastic one to replace my glass one that broke... It was quite a bit cheaper and works just as well... Only drawback is it is so light weight it wants to jiggle off the lock position if I am blending thick liquids. I have to hold it on while blending. No big deal
My original glass jar chipped at the bottom creating quite a few fantastic messes in my kitchen before I discovered the culprit. I found this online, and although a little nervous about the fact it's plastic, I went ahead and ordered it because of the good reviews. So far, so good. I've made quite a few shakes with ice cubes in it and have also used it to grind coffee beans. Perfect!
DOES NOT COME WITH A BLADE!!! I was looking for a replacement cup for my oster blender, as my old one had broken. This is just the cup, that is all that you get! It is a simple design, worth what you pay. I had to return it and just purchase a whole new blender. Wish i had just purchased a new blender to begin with.
I broke the glass jar that came with my blender by accidentally tipping it over on my granite countertop. This jar should last longer, works just as well as the glass and was much cheaper.
Oster Plastic Blender Jar #4917-008: I was miffed when my teenage son broke my glass jar. I now thank him for the same. This new plastic jar is a tad larger but fit perfectly with my old base and blades. No leakage at all. It also has teets at the bottom that match the base to keep it from spinning whereas my glass one did not. The old glass jar had more of a sharp angle on the 4 corners which led to some ingredients not mixing well. This new plastic jar is more rounded on the corners and it is a big plus. No more stopping midway to scrape the corners! The included lid fits snug but is easily removed and also has a filler cap which is designed as a 2 oz measure. Excellent bargain, excellent product. Assembled in Mexico - BPA free - dishwasher safe. Now I just hope my motor will do its part. (But I do have a backup.) Beware: this does not include the screw on base and blades so save your old ones - they'll fit perfectly. Store pickup also saved shipping charges!
I`m so happy. I'm from Brazil and there they don't use glass cups for mixer for long time. When mine broke and I found this plastic one, I felt I was at home (lol)
Is easy to clean, really light and even if is not the same size of the original one, it does a good job.
It was nice to be able to find a plastic jar!
I use this jar for grinding compost - works wonderfully!
There was some leakage from the connection of container and motor. I learned to avoid the leakage by putting in my solids first and never a liquid first. My old glass container never leaked. I sort of wish I'd purchased a new glass one instead of the plastic container.
Does not stay put in the base. Leaks.
The blade is not long enough to beat the ingredients wells throughout the jar. You have to keep stopping the motor to stir the mixture in the jar so that the ingredients can move to the bottom. The lines in the jar makes it difficult to scrap the food out. Maybe the jar would work best if it was short and wide instead of tall and narrow since ingredients do stir well in the tall jar.
It leaked at the bottom!
Don't buy this. It is a THIN piece of plastic - nothing like the original plastic jars. When I was picking it up at the store, the clerk handed me the box (which was in perfect condition) and I heard a rattle. I asked her to open the box. The cup on the lid was shattered and the jar was also broken. Upon seeing the cheap quality, I got a refund and ordered a stainless jar elsewhere.
Great quality! Great process!
One of the kids accidentally dropped mine and it cracked all the way down. I was so glad that I was able to get the exact one to replace it.
exactly what i needed after I dropped and broke the handle of my other one!
My original blender is probably 8 years old. I am so happy to find an exact replacement at a reasonable cost, instead of buying a new blender.
Highly Reccomended!!! Much lighter and more durable than the glass jars that most oster's come with. Be sure to keep the bottom to your previous jar however, this only comes with the jar and the lid!! Worth every penny and I'm sure will last longer than my glass jar.
