i wanted to get a VITAMIX blender soooo bad, but unfortunately i did not have the money to spend a few hundred dollar on it.
however, i still was looking for a blender that can do the same job as the vitamix and which will not break after blending up some carrots!
i finally found what i was looking for, the price is only $250 and has the same features as the original VITAMIX. i can totally recommend this one. and i feel so happy every morning when i make my banana smoothie, my carrot-ginger juice in the afternoon, or my raw veggie soups for dinner... :-)
I thought I might share this with you guys, in case someone is looking to get a great christmas gift for themselves/ their family or friends...
