I bit the bullet and ordered a refurb Vita-Mix with the intention to put it through its paces in time to return it in 30 days if I'm not pleased with it (their policy). What interested me specifically is its purported ability to make hot soups. So this is kind of a Home Cooking question, too.
Does anyone have ideas or recipes that will give me the best shot at evaluating this kind of blender for soups? (I assume that brands like Blendtec would be in the same ballpark for this query.).
p.s.: Consumer Reports describes the blender's soups as lukewarm, but I don't fully trust CR for specialist equipment reviewing.
