I ended up buying a Ninja, too! I bought the kitchen system which features a smaller food processor container in addition to the large blender sized container. It also comes with 5 different attachments (2 blades, a whip, a paddle and a dough fork). I just got it over the weekend, and I think we've used it at least once a day with a lot of success. Love it so far!!

Hi,

From my blender research, definitely Vitamix or Blendetch are the best blenders out there. The price was a little high for me, so I started with a Ninja for 100 at Target and I am extremely satisfied with it. I make smoothies with leafy greens, frozen fruits, ginger pieces etc and they come out smooth and great! (no chunks of anything!) Also, I was able to make seed cheese on the Ninja.

Hope this helps,

I got a Ninja pro at Sam's club for 50.00 and I love it. It has 3 sizes of containers and 3 different blades for them.

I have to agree. I spent the money on a VItamix a Costco in 2005 and haven't had one complaint. We use it on an average 2-3x a day.....for the past 7 years. No problems. Well worth every penny spent!

Oh, you are going to hate me for this, but I bought a vitamix blender from Costco in May 2009 and I LOVE it! I was just about to have my tonsils out and I really wanted to have a blender that could pulverize ice...seems quite excessive I know, but I have used my vitamix blender at least once every day since I bought it. I am completely addicted to green smoothies.

My sister got a new "powerful" blender for Christmas last year and I used it to make smoothies - all I can say is it made me love my vitamix blender even more after using hers. It is really pricey though so I know it is a huge luxury item and definitely not a priority for many people.

I'm addicted to smoothies right now. And I also love making soups. And I have a cheap old blender without a lot of power. Does anyone have any faves out there??
