Vitamix vs Immersion blender vs food processor?

guitargirlcbr | May 2, 201508:43 AM     5

I apologize in advance if I'm beating (or blending) a dead horse, but I'd really like to know if I should get a Vitamix. I have an immersion blender that I love, and a food processor that I use often. But my mother had a Vitamix that I used occasionally to make her soups and things and I really liked it. It's expensive, and do I need another appliance?

But nut butters? Can't make those with an immersion blender. The soups in the Vitamix are creamier. I feel like it might open up more possibilities!

Opinions?
