Vita-Mix 5200 High Performance Blender

OK, if you've never seen a VitaMix demo then you are truly missing out! These machines are workhorses and can make anything from soups and smoothies to ice cream! I watched a demo that made a smoothie out of canteloupe, among other fruits, and she just put whole cantaloupe pieces, including the rind, in there, and it made smoothie out of it in a matter of seconds (watch your fingers, for sure!). The most powerful blender out there, a must for anyone who enjoys natural cooking.
