Brag about your blender

I am not happy with my blender at all

I just burned out my Ninja * one of the first ones* and i loved it

My regular blender is junk

So brag to me about your blender........

I love my cuisinart portable blender. It's like the magic bullet where you have travel cups you can blend in but the quality is much better. It's really powerful and can blend ice with no problems.

Vitamix. After YEARS of inferior blenders - NO MORE!

There is a thread titled "VitaMix HEAVEN" if you want testimonials and recipes!

Sure but you would need a bit of liquid to help things along. Vitamix blenders are professional quality and worth it if you can afford it but he cuisinart really does a great job too.

Vitamix here, too. I bought it because of Charski, The Great Enabler. Best decision ever.

LOVE LOVE LOVE my Vitamix

If you're in Canada. Costco.ca is now carrying Blendtec's and Vitamix's. They recently had a $100.00 off special on the Blendtec's.

Vitamix!! Love mine. If you have a Costco membership, my local one currently has the older model available cheaper. They were demoing the new one yesterday. The smoothie and (I think) ice cream buttons are nice, but not necessary. It's absolutely worth checking out.

The Costco here has had the Vitamix for $374 for several months now. It's a great price.

I see that QVC channel is showing the Vitamix on 3/22. Not sure if it will be a special price or not.

You can buy it online from Costco's website and if needed to be returned, I believe you can return it to the store, though I'm not 100% sure of that.

ETA: I see the website may not have the specific package you were looking for though.

Made in Ohio I believe- with a 5-7 year warranty--they pay for shipping back and forth to the factory for repairs also--awesome--I would definitely watch QVC for some of their shows

I don't know if Vitamix themselves ship to Canada, but they have 3 refurbished blenders on their website right now ranging from 329 to 399, as well as all their new ones and they offer a 3 payment plan, as well. I also noticed today the BlendTrend blog offering a free shipping promo code of 06-008079 - again, I don't know if it applies to Canada.

The one I bought is a refurb, never had any problems with it and love love love it. I hope they ship to Canada!

Will Costco? Cuz yes, at least here, you can return any item you purchased from them online at a local store if you need to.

Thanks everyone for the good words on the Vitamix. Just ordered one from QVC. I ordered from there because they have the 5 easy payments. That is the only way I can afford it.
