Blenders

It's true. The VitaMix is considered the best blender by Consumer Reports. It's hard to believe that I may actually buy one of these.

The DH and I have gone through three blenders in our four years of mariage. It's actually a little entertaining at this point. The latest is one with a square top with completely perpendicular sides that just doesn't do the J-O-B. And this is the one we bought after the last one started smoking. We don't allow smoking in our house, so it had to go.

Buying a VitaMix is especially funny to me, because we all got such a big kick out of it when my grandparents bought the VitaMix. You would have thought it could make dinner for you. Unfortunately, we got dinner made in the VitaMix. It can heat what's in there, so grandma made soup. Then she blended it. Yes. She blended the vegetable soup to a puree so we would eat all the vegetables. It tasted even worse than it looked. On the upside, I think we got ice cream out of the VitaMix too. It wasn't all bad.

You totally need a Blendtec made famous by the "Will it Blend" videos. I have been a huge fan of the KitchenAid blender we've been using for a few years now.

My blender is now in its 14th year. And I have had my eye on a Vitamix or a Blendtec for awhile :) !! My mom and sister have a Vitamix and they love it!

I love my KitchenAid. I've had it for 4 years and use it a ton. I killed two other blenders before I decided that paying $100 on a blender was going to be cheaper and less irritating that buying a new one every 1.5 years.
