Agreed Jrod!! I got one of these for Christmas and it's the best blender I've ever owned. Normally I just end up using the single serving blender cup which is perfect for blending my protein shakes. Frozen fruit is pulverized in seconds....LOVE IT!!!the ninja is a great one the one I got juices processes food and blends its kind of expensive but its great one
I cook for a living and the Vitamix/Vitaprep machines are the class of the field. You wount find anything else in a commercial kitchen.Another vote for vitamix here. I used to run through blenders every 6-12 mo (even $100 blenders) and my vitamix has been kickin' ass for 5+yr now.
