I have an old one, and it has never been good. I am planning on getting a better one soon. It will have a less tapered container, one with squarer edges as well. I have decided that a wider bottom is better.

I have looked at the Ninja blender but, nobody I know owns one.

i use the blend tec. That and the VitaMix are considered to be the top 2 non-commercial blenders (even though both companies make commercial blenders too) I like mine and it was a little cheaper than the VM. You'll see both camps chime in here and both are pretty loyal. They are both very good and you can't go wrong with either.

They are really expensive but the Vitamix blenders are about as good as they get. I think it would grind rocks if you wanted.

Swallow really hard and just buy a Vitamix. It's worth it for the margaritas the consistency of pudding alone!

I have a Ninja and I love it! For what I use it for, it is perfect. I also saw recently that they just started pushing a professional model with a 2hp motor. I will admit, I am not a chef and I don't use it daily, but it is a beast in my opinion. The model I have came with the dough making setup as well, so it is versatile as well.

1+ for theVitamix the blend tech's are nice also. My Vitamix makes great frozen drinks I haven't thrown anything at it that it couldn't handle. The Vitamix web sight usually has refurbished units for a little better price.

The wife will be getting this for Christmas. I will be purchasing it from Costco as they have the best warranty and return policy.

You'll love it.

Sounds like a jet taking off when using, but it is truly a beast.

Plus, the size is perfect for fitting under kitchen cabinets on your counter.
