  1. I always want a blender at my house, but never know which one is better, first of all, awesome review! Very clean and easier to understand, yes, it is quite expensive, but as you said, nowadays will very value high quality, I am that kind of person, I rather buy something expensive than something cheap but not good enough, thank you for this great review, I will discuss with my family to see whether we need to buy or not!

  2. Thanks for the review of the Vitamix A3500 Blender. So many features and pros it offers versus the one con of it being pricey. I will pay the extra price because I know it offers value and will last for the long haul. I cannot tell you how many blenders I have gone through over the years.

    It all comes down to having the right piece of equipment for the job, and if the job requires a lot of blending as it does for me, I know that the extra money will be worth it because this machine can take the heat that I am going to give it. I do juices daily, I create drinks very often for guests, I chop many things for cooking, and this is the best brand and model available I think.

    Now that there is even an app that can help me use this more, I will be getting it. I am sure that the 500 recipes will be ones that I can use, and if not, I will try them anyway! Thanks for the latest on this excellent blender, you had me almost from the beginning!
