I can’t rave about this blender enough! You won’t be disappointed, I promise! If you follow any of my recipes, you’ll notice that most of them require some sort of a high-powered blender. This has been my blender of choice since I purchased it 5 years ago. It has lasted, and not skipped a beat since the moment I unboxed it. I know the sticker price is a lot, $349.30, for someone like myself who uses it everyday, it was worth the investment. Prior to having a Vitamix, I was using regular blenders and they kept burning out and not blending completely. I’ve been over the moon with this purchase and want to encourage anyone who was on the fence about it, to just do it!
