Omega's OM7560 blender is designed to go head-to-head with premium appliances from Vitamix, Blendtec and KitchenAid.
All the controls on the Omega OM7560 blender are manual. You won't find any fancy preset modes to blend smoothies, frozen drinks, soup and the like here.
Here's a look down into the Omega OM7560 blender's blending jar. The steel blades are small compared with the height of the tall, slender jar.
The blade assembly is made from steel and interfaces with a steel socket on the blender base.
One drawback of the Omega OM7560 blender's height is it doesn't fit underneath low kitchen cabinets.
The underside of the blender's base serves as a handy place to store its cord.
Many ice cubes were left unscathed no matter how many pulses I made with the Omega OM7560 blender.
Making smooth smoothies wasn't a problem. The Omega OM7560 Blender quickly liquefied our test mixture of orange juice and frozen strawberries.
The Omega OM7560 crushed dry almonds into powder without any trouble. But I was only able to make real nut butter after an hour of blending and pausing to stir by hand often.
The leafy greens in our pesto recipe can be challenging for some blenders.
Some blenders don't need extra help to whip up a batch of pesto. The Omega OM7560 did. That aid came in the form of tamping down spinach leaves periodically so the blades could grab them properly. I could make a proper pesto, but only after using the included tamping tool.
Blending a big block of cheddar is a tough test for any blender.
The Omega OM7560 managed to shred our test cheese block. I did have to give the blender jar a few shakes during the process.
Whipping up whipped cream was a simple affair. The Omega OM7560 Blender managed to do the task in nine pulses at high speed.
