The bad: With no presets and no timer, it might be a bit too simple. Also, it doesn't dominate the cheaper models as much as you'd think. The bottom line: As tempting as that freakishly powerful motor is, it's difficult to justify the $529 Vitamix over some of the more affordable competitors... [read news]

The bottom line: Strong performance... [read news]
