I've been perusing articles and posts about the best blender. But other than the recently re-done CI reviews, which I think were done last year, the majority of what I've found is at least a few years old.
I'm not ready to spend the $ on a Vitamix right now, and definitely don't want to spend more than $200. Consumer Reports says the Ninja Master Prep Professional, which is only $60, outdid the Vitamix in their tests. But I also found some more negative reviews of the same blender on other sites. Also, this particular model has multiple bowls which I'm not necessarily happy about since we have very limited storage space. I know the Ninja also has a few other models that weren't as highly reviewed.
The other one I'm looking at is the CI top choice, the Breville. Haven't seen very much about the Kitchenaid models and am curious about those. Anyone have any experience with the Ninja, and have any thoughts on them vs. Breville vs. Kitchenaid?
