For over a year now, I have been looking at "commercial" blenders (VitaMix, BlendTec, etc.). I have a beehive Oster right now that is really a piece of junk. I know I can get a much better blender and I know I'll use it...I just can't quite bring myself to pay $500 for a blender.
So are they worth it? Anyone know of a less expensive model? I've seen the base model VitaMix for $398, then I get caught up wondering if its worth it to spend a little more to get more power.
I'd appreciate thoughts on the subject...I've been thinking about this for so long I am beyond muddled.
