Do any of you have a recommendation for a blender that you absolutely love?
I am a serious cook of sorts, also into healthy cooking, so I make my own (enter anything here) when I can.
That being said, I am also often making smoothies, green juices (with my juicer at the moment), pureeing soups on a weekly basis...
I am torn between investing in a VitaMix (because of my deep interest in super pureed fruit/veggie drinks and the ease of soup pureeing, and the ability to grind things into flours or nut butters.... ) and getting a really nice blender — whatever is the next best thing to a VitaMix.
I currently have a rather annoying Oster Beehive blender that was gifted to me and, while beautiful, makes a rocket-like sound when turned on for the simplest tasks, doesn't hold all that much liquid, and doesn't really break things down as well as I'd like.
Any recommendations? I'm not afraid to spend a healthy amount, assuming this won't costs me as much as a VitaMix.
