need a new one. Got a Better Homes and Gardens version from Wally world that is a POS replaced once already in a year then this one crapped after a year. I know, it was Wally world but Better Homes na Gardens I thought cared about the brand.

Can't find parts so going to chunk tot he dump.


Any suggestions? Don't use alot, but want to get a good one. HAS TO GO INTO THE DISHWASHER. prefer glass.

Vitamix, close thread.

No other blender comes close.

Yeah but it can liquify a cell phone.

Seriously, buy it, never look back, there is no comparison, period.

No dishwasher is for the container, not the blade. Its the best blender on earth, so what if you have to wash it by hand, its the best blender on earth! You can even make butter out of nuts with it. Its easy to wash by the way, big opening.

Waring heavy duty bar blender. One setting. On off. Under $100 I bet.

I don't care how amazing a vitamix is I don't need a blender that costs that much.

The ninja is a decent alternative to the vitamix.

We've had ours for about 8 years now and it gets used at least 5 days a week. Oftentimes more.
If it broke tomorrow, I would run to the store for a replacement.

The blades spin at 240 mph and can make hot soup in the blender!

If you dont' use a lot, don't spend 400 bucks.

shouldn't be a biggie to wash the pitcher part by hand??

I use my nutribullet daily for protein shakes. I love it, but for large scale blending it doesn't count. Protein powder and raspberries though, it eats that up.

If you want the best, buy a Vitamix.

If you want something less, buy that. It might be close enough.
