Simply the best home blender on the market and the one that is sitting on my kitchen counter. My blender and my juicer are my two most important pieces of equipment in the kitchen and I need the best of each since I use them both so much. The Blendtec is the one to own.
It makes great nut milks, green smoothies and grinds up vegetables with no problem.
