    I think that HiTempguy is actually right about a lot of stuff. Except he doesn't believe in the awesomeness of the 6-6 lol
    The new Camry and of course the venerable Accord 6-6 really aren't anything to scoff at...

    Haha isn't that the truth. The sales can be so hefty though (like 80% off), that I actually have the odd piece of Monster equipment The people I feel sorry for are those walking into Best Buy or Visions and buying the "HD certified gold plated" $60 3-foot cables, then again if they were too lazy to do a 2 second google search, maybe not so much.

    We use a Vitamix in our home. I was pretty pissed when my fiancee dropped several hundred bucks on a goddamn blender but truth be told, it makes smoothies like no other blender we've ever had in the house. We've had it for a couple years now and haven't had any issues with it.

    Same thing with this holiday season, she went out and bought one of those $600 cordless Dyson vacuums. I was pretty choked but then she turned it on and picked up all the Shiba hair on our living room carpet. Shut me right up because our $250 Bissett pet hair vacuum couldn't pick up any of it

    Bottom line, I can't tell you how much of a quantifiable/statistical significance it makes, but there's a difference. I just wouldn't pay a 2x or even 3x premium for it but I wouldn't be as arrogant as HiTempguy and shit on people who would.

    After all, we're on a forum where fellas don't mind taking a bath on a car just because they want a new ride after a year

    I’m so baller I want the badge and the expensive piece of shit to pretend it’s not about the badge sitting on my cheap plastic countertop. But hey, lightning cable in the background, official Apple one too. Baller status reinstated.

    That's cute. Whatever makes you feel like a big man How can you not have the balls to own up to being arrogant?

    You needed to quote me just to prove that you're not?

    Reading this thread could lead one to believe that certain types of blenders are like penis extensions for some, for others not and then there's the one who just don't care and use whatever they feel suits their needs.

    We've got an older Breville and it performs wonderfully for our needs, not used on a daily or even monthly basis but it has always met our requirements when brought out to do some sort of blending task. It is top of the line in the blender world, probably not but it is more than adequate for our needs - doesn't mean I have to shit on other people's choices. Our main vacuum, a near the top of the line Miele, cost a lot but is amazing. Stand mixers, got a budget one that gets used a fair bit, have actually replaced it with the same exact model because we've worn them out and we also have a top of the line Kitchenaid stand mixer as well - that thing is the boss but it's extreme weight means it stays put away unless it's required for something the other stand mixer can't do. The Kitchenaid was a gift and to be totally honest, I'm not sure we would've ever spent the money on one because of it's so infrequent use - yeah, it's amazing but such a heavy brute.

    Now off topic (yeah, I know but to lighten things up a bit), how many of you have this toaster...

    I really do find it amusing that Blending became such a huge thing over the course of the last decade, yet how many people use these fancy blenders routinely is so few.

    I know out of my appliances, my blendtec sits the most when compared to my sodastream, air fryer, kitchenaid mixer, nespresso, fuck even the toaster.

    that said, Vitamix is the originator and has nothing to prove. but shit... honestly any 1200 watt decent named "i.e. Oster" without cheap plastic components is going to do what anyone would ever need it for, unless you own a cafe or a jugo juice.

    Its like any appliances... sure a Subzero/Wolfe or Miele will have 9 discreet gas burners but fuck I just need 4 and my Whirpool does a good enough job

    Yay!! I got gifted a Vitamix blender from the parents for X-Mas. Its the 5300 Series from Costco. $499 but was on sale for $399. I've never actually owned a blender in my life so we'll see how it goes

    Well imagine if instead of writing that letter to the editor, she just posts on a car forum for car enthusiasts. That's Kritafo.

    Actually the Brevilles are somewhat expensive and work extremely well.

    How the hell do you survive with just 4 burners?

    You just outed yourself and have fallen from beyond baller status to beyond pleb status - welcome to the club.

    I take pride in enjoying in the pleasures of life now "prudently" without compromising my life when I am on a fixed income - unlike most millennial beyond baller/hisper-status.

    I also didn't name my kids Jaxxxon, Kenszingtynne or Kingsley and own most of my properties.
