blender vs. smoothie maker
I want to get a blender that is strong enough to crush ice without having to spend a fortune. How would I know if a blender is strong enough to crush ice? The smoothie makers claims to crush ice & are reasonably priced BUT my concern is the spout they all have that would seem to me to get clogged up or difficult to clean. Has anyone tried Cooks Essentials smoothie maker? Any recommendations?
