I have been reading about Vita-Mix blenders for ages on blogs but what’s sold me for really wanting one is that it will blend nuts into a paste (which I’ve never managed with any kitchen equipment) and that I can make soup in it, which would be so handy for Sunday evenings when I get home with the boys and need soup made fast (I do try and do it in advance but don’t always get time). I also want to get more smoothies into our lives but my blender leaves lumps in stuff (even though it’s much better than my previous blender which basically didn’t really blend…) which is offputting for kids.
However, I had no idea that they were so expensive. I thought to myself ‘I’ll save up for one’ thinking they were around £150 or something. The cheapest I’ve seen so far on Google is £399, I could take the kids away on holiday for a week for that amount of money!
So, the Vita-Mix will stay a dream for quite a while longer I think, saving up that amount of money would take me years and even though I know all the wonderful things about it actually spending that amount of money on one kitchen item (I only paid a bit more for my cooker!) would probably send me over the edge…
I guess a girl can dream though!
