The Vita-Mix is here
Craig and I have burned through two and a half blenders in the past six months. And so we decided it was time to upgrade to the Vita-Mix blender. Equipped with a 2 horsepower motor, the Vita-Mix is essentially a garbage disposal inside a jug. The blades spin so fast you can put in cold ingredients and turn them into hot soup. Their main competitor, Blendtec, has a series of commercials in which they blend hockey pucks, cans of food (with the can), and even the new iPhone 3G.
I now own a blender that costs more than my car. What a glorious day.
