The Great Vitamix Decision

Some of you may have noticed that I have posted on my wall and in other places about my deciding on whether or not to buy a Vitamix blender.
From what I have read in various places about this device, calling it a blender is considered by some to be a disservice. The machine is supposed to do everything for you in the blending arena of cooking preparation except go ahead and service up the results for you on the table.
Although I have been looking and doing some reading on this machine for about four to six months, the real question is my mindset about purchasing it. Part of me thinks that the price is ridiculous and what I already have does fine. Then, I remember how I came to rejoin Weight Watchers again. I think about the entry I wrote about what I could buy to maintain my highest weight ever for just one year. And, I ask myself if I spent money on that, why would I not buy something that will enhance my cooking and food preparation skills and, thus, enhance my weight-loss journey.
So, I have posed the request for opinions on my wall. I have done this in groups. I have done this in challenges. Now, it’s time to enter the blogosphere with the query. Here is what I have posted elsewhere:
“I would like some advice. I have been seeing and hearing about the Vitamix for a while now. I am thinking about purchasing one, but want to know before a plop down $300-500.00 that this is really a step-up from my $99.00 KitchenAid blender. Comments and suggestion would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, folks.”
There you have it. What do you think? What do you know about the Vitamix? Do you think it’s worth the investment? Your commentary is most welcome. And, if you have already dropped me some advice, please feel free to add here as well. As written above—Thanks, folks! :)
