I have decided to invest in a better blender to help try to wean my family off processed foods. Most of my serious/semi-serious cooking friends recommend a Vitamix. But now I see there are about a dozen to choose from: 5200, 1363, 1710, 1300 and more! The Amazon reviews aren't helping, because apparently everyone thinks that THEIR model is the best. This is getting to be almost as difficult a choice as choosing a kindergarten for my kid! Can anyone offer some guidance?
Thanks in advance for your help.
PS I looked in the Food52 archive, and while there was quite a bit of blender discussion, I didn't see anything where people weighed in on specific vitamix models.
