After volunteering at the Green Living Show this year and seeing a demo of the mother of all blenders – the Vitamix – I’ve been obsessed with getting one. Oh, the smoothies, frozen (yes frozen) deserts and the soups (yes soups) I could make with this bad ass blender. Check out the video to see what this machine can do…
What an incredible kitchen appliance. Of course, being the frugal person I am, I can’t bring myself to spend $600+ on a blender until I’m convinced I will use it every day for the rest of my life. I checked online and discovered I have enough AirMiles points to buy it too – hmmm spend my AirMiles on a blender or purchase two 5-day passes to Disney World. I know which I would pick – the Vitamix you Silly Billy!
UPDATE – FEBRUARY 11, 2013: Sadly, AirMiles has discontinued offering the VitaMix on their program. Dang! I was not quick enough to buy one with my points :(
To test my level of commitment to smoothies and blending on a regular basis I picked up a vintage 10-speed Osterizer blender at VV Boutique (that’s the fancy name for Value Village). If I keep up the blending for a year, I’ll bite the bullet and buy the Vitamix. Until then my Osterizer will be the blender of choice for me. Yes, it’s as ugly as my juicer but they are very happy sitting together on our kitchen counter.
