The boys are back for the summer and make fruit smoothies all the time too. Gawd I hope I never have to cough up the money for another blender like this, lol.
I know what you mean, I myself had to fork over $15 for a Black and Decker One-Touch Chopper from K-Mart today (I hope to make Hummus quicker and easier).
Sure, some people will say $15 isn't the same as $600, but potato, patato. When you take a wider view of this you'll find yourself asking questions like "What the heck is a patato, and what is he rambling about" and possibly "Why am I wasting my time reading this drivel".
Good luck with your new Vitamix I hope it makes you as happy as mine has me.
