Cookware

Vitamix users: is there anything you make with a variable speed unit that could not be done with proper use of the two speed version?

Qvc recently had a special for $400: a combo of the two speed unit and the extra dry grinding container (normally $150 extra)

Now I'm wondering if I should have gotten a variable speed unit instead. Apparently one can grind grains with the regular one if done in smaller batches (1-2 cups) which I wouldn't find problematic since I'm mostly cooking for myself.

All of the recipes in the three included cookbooks had the directions for using two speeds and between them all it didn't appear to have left out any type of foods or techniques.

So I'd like to hear from experienced users of VM if there is anything you'd miss terribly if you had only two speeds to work with.

Any advice you have would be much appreciated.
