My blender bit the dust this morning. The blade jammed on a chunk of ice and split the base where the shaft goes through and Leaks like sieve now. I'm not quite up for a $400 vita mix. I'd like to find a unit that will hold up to regular use at a reasonable price. What do you guys like?

For somewhat similar performance without the price, the Ninja system isn't bad. I've got a VitaMix and it can do absolutely anything, but it was a gift and I would have never spent $600 on it. My buddy has the Ninja and I've seen him blend up all sorts of shit. Not the same capacity or power of the Vitamix, but still really impressive.

Unless you want to spend one large on a Hobart..... the Ninja kicks ass.

I usually just use my teeth...

Otherwise, a cheap cuisinart works fine. I burn it out every other year and replace it for 60 bucks. No biggie.

What do you need to blend with one like that? I'm just curious. I have an Osterizer.

My ninja came with a 5 cup & 9 cup processing bowl. It also came with mixing blades, which are great to mix my oatmeal banana pancakes.
