Both these models are good single-serve blenders considering their affordable price. Although the KOIOS 850W Bullet was slightly more efficient within our testing, we concluded the Oster BLSTPB-WBL is  strong enough for any simple  blending. 

However, these two blenders are not without their drawbacks. Their power ratings were too weak to handle the heavy blending performance well, sometimes requiring a few shakes in order to ensure a thorough blend. Nevertheless, these shortcomings are compromises for the low cost.

There's no clear winner in terms of overall design, as both blenders are quite good-looking with standard plastic parts, but we do prefer the Oster’s appearance for its sporty style, which at first glance is uncluttered and aesthetically pleasing.

Pros & Cons

  • 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.
  • Competitive price tag 
  • Extra extractor blade for dry blending 
  • Powerful motor allows for a wide range of tasks 
  • Two blending cups are included 
  • Intuitive to use 
  • The blades can be removed from the base for thorough cleaning
  • 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.
  • No option for hands-free operation
