    If you're okay with red, grab the red Nutribullet on clearance for $50 from Target (Sunridge), then you don't have to worry about price differential between MB and NB.
    Thanks for that, i'm fine with Red for half price

    The blender I have takes all of a minute or two to clean out.

    I fill it half full with water and soap let it blend that up for a second. Rinse and dry. Done.

    The blender I have is like 30+ years old and she's a beast. The torque this motor puts out spins the base if you don't hold it.

    I found one on E-bay, haha even look at the description!

    THIS AUCTION IS FOR A VINTAGE CHROME OSTERIZER GALAXIE 10 SPEED BLENDER BASE / MOTOR ONLY. IT IS SERVICE NUMBER #847-68S. THIS BLENDER BASE IS IN GOOD WORKING CONDITION. IT HAS A VERY POWERFUL MOTOR.

    There is something about old appliances that makes them seem like they were designed to survive a nuclear blast.

    *EDIT... Durr, I guess they designed them this way:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Osterizer

    Osterizers tended towards heavy construction and motors. While this raised cost, many early-model Osterizers still function today, and are more powerful than a majority of contemporary consumer blenders.

    We have two blenders one glass oster which is pretty good and a vitamix. Hands down the vitamix is better in every way. It holds more, blends better and cleans easily. The oster is surprisingly good though its just too small and more of a pain to clean.. I use a blender a lot more now that I have a vitamix but I could see why people don't want to spend the money.

    Just got back from there. Either they're all gone or I'm blind.

    We just picked up a blendtec from bed bath and beyond they have that 20% off coupon for email signup which usually excludes vitamix and blendtec but not this one! so all in it was 416.00 pretty good price great blender and 7 year warranty.

    Bump; looking to move to either a blendtec or a vitamix. Anyone come across any great deals for these lately?

    Was originally leaning towards a vitamix but it isn't usable with the 20% off coupon from BB&B while the blendtec is.

    I'm still blown away that I spent $700 on a fucking Blender earlier this year.

    I got the Blentec in Feb from Costco, and initially thought it was a pretty good blender. After 200 blends, I was noticing the performance deteriorating. I just exchanged for the new VitaMix (NQA), and after a couple of weeks, I am blown away at the results. The smoothies have a totally different taste and very smooth texture coming from the VitaMix. For example, I used to really taste the cucumber and celery in my smoothies and don't anymore. I believe The Consumer Reports article is correct on the Vitamix and Blendtec. The big difference between the two is the blades. Where Blendtec has 2 large dull blades that can't be changed, the vitamix has 4 sharp blades that can be changed.

    I still like my blendtec lots but only about 50 uses so far. I mainly like how it has the buttons to do different things instead of not having them and just a dial.

    I have this and love it for my smoothies. Haven't tried it for soups or anything intense but this is a great product:
    http://m.costco.ca/Vitamix-TurboBlen...100084641.html

    I've seen it for sale in the $300-350 rang.

    Looks like prices dropped a little since I bought it.

    I thought I liked the presets, lcd display, and smaller profile. In the end, I am extremely happy Costco let me trade up. The VitaMix I got has presets on it, it's the Total Nutrition Centre 3 in Red.

    I bought my blendtec about 3ish years ago and the counter is now at over 4000 blends... We have 2 jars and I have only ever used the large size. Maybe you got a bad unit because like I said over 4000 blends on the same blade and it still chews through frozen berries easily...

    As kaput said, until you have one you don't really realize how much you can use it for. Given our counter, that's on average more than 3 blend cycles every single day for over 3 years... Haha

    Picked up the Blendtec Designer 625 from BB&B and tried it out this AM; not nearly as loud as I was expecting based on peoples comments and chewed up all the fruits and veggies nicely

    Blenders are supposed to pulverize food not slice it.

    The sharpness of the blades or even the number of them is irrelevant.

    Speed and strength of the motor along with the shape of the pitcher is more important IMO.
