It's a damn blender.
Buy a $20 blender and take $480 and buy a rice cooker and a banana holder.
Oh, and a omlet maker and salad shooter.........
There is world of difference between a $20 blender and a vita mix. And if you haven't see one in action you really should.
We have a vita mix and honestly i've never questioned the quality/price value. We've have several blenders that have all worked mediocre and will never buy another brand again, except maybe a blendtec.
