Cook's Illustrated just re-tested blenders when their 2nd place (to Vitamix) blender went belly-up after a year. While the Vitamix again came in first, at $449 it's a bit pricey. Their second place finisher is the Breville Hemisphere Control, model BBL605XL at $199. Do any of you have that blender? Would you recommend it?
