  • Blender recs?

    Blender has broken down.

    I figured this tech (and drink) savvy crowd would have recommendations for good blenders.

    In a little preliminary research I figured out that there is new this uber-blender class of really expensive blenders that I had never known about. Not sure if they are worth it. However, I don't want a cheap one either.

    Needs to fit under a kitchen cabinet, otherwise open for thinking about options.

    Rec?

    Mike

    *EDIT*
    I should mention, our prior two blenders were Kitchen Aid.

    You'll never buy another. We use it for all family vacations for drinks, malts, shakes, everything. They are beasts. $300 and you are done.

          I agree with the blendtec suggestion. I've used up to a hundred blenders over the last few years but their products are among the best for their price range. And due to my lifestyle I drink around 6 shakes/smoothies a day. So I must have something that is powerful, easy to clean, and durable. Blendtec meets all three of the aforementioned criteria.
          I came, I saw, I purchased.

            Blendtec model?

            Thanks.
            I have seen Blendtec on Amazon with positive reviews.
            There are a number of models.
            Any suggestions?

            Anything besides Blendtec?

            I like this pic of different blenders:

                  I have this Ninja blender. Probably nowhere near the quality of the $300 blenders, but definitely holds its own. Got mine from Kohls for ~$70 last year.

                            Depends.
                            High cost, high quality that lasts "forever" is better than low or medium cost that burns out every few years.
                            I thought my Kitchen Aid Blender was expensive, but two of them haven't lasted.

                            Still, the examples are not $20 blenders (which might work for many people).
