Powerful blender for Quirky Single?

yfunk3 | Nov 15, 2010 07:02 PM

I didn't want to say "blender for 1" as that sounds sort of pathetic, like I'm lamenting my lack of roommates (so totally NOT the case! Heaven is having your own apartment!). Heh heh.

Anyway, I've been wanting a blender for ages, but a regular blender is just too. darn. big for just one person. Plus, my kitchen is SMALL. VERY small. Okay, so it's really just crowded with all my equipment, so I really don't want to add another large appliance to it.

I know I could maybe buy one of those informercial blenders like the Magic Bullet, but those appliances are always cheaper than they look on TV.

I want something that will:

-crush ice because I like my non-alcoholic pina coladas and other virgin cocktails
-cost less than $50, preferably
-won't take up more space than say...a mini food processor (think mini cuisinart). The smaller the better, though I know that's difficult if I want something powerful and reliable enough to crush ice.

Does something like this exist? Or am I just dreaming of something that I'll probably have to pay $100+ for?

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
