Do I need an expensive blender?
The thread on the Vitamix blender got me thinking--do I really need an expensive blender? I have my Cuisinart and my immersion blender and my KitchenAid stand mixer. We are not big juice drinkers and our alcohol is pretty much limited to wine (ok, maybe some straight vodka too). I have a perfectly ordinary Oster blender. I can't remember the last time I used it.
For those of you with the Vitamix or another expensive blender, what things do you use it for (other than juicing and frozen drinks) that could not be done with one of the other appliances I have mentioned?
