    We have a Vitamix Creations II and absolutely love it!

    Spendy, but works awesome. The warranty is amazing and customer service (so I have been told) is beyond and above.

    http://www.qvc.com/Vitamix-Creations-II-48-oz.-12-in-1-Variable-Speed-Blender-Search-Results.product.K38242.html?sc=K38242-SRCH&cm_sp=VIEWPOSITION-_-4-_-K38242&catentryImage=http://images-p.qvc.com/is/image/k/42/k38242.001?$uslarge$

    This is the package we bought from QVC. Great deal and comes with the Thermos which is awesome. My wife stole it and uses it all the time.

    I use a Vitamix every morning. I love it and would never buy another brand. You can spend $500 every 10-15 years and be happy with it or spend $150 every couple of years on a cheaper blender that won't quite get the job done.

    We got a ninja pro at Walmart on sale... So far so good... :)

    I juice with a cold press juicer so just needed a simple blender for the wife's smoothies. :)

    Way to many to mention!
    FYI I am in love with my Blendtec Designer series. I use it for everything!! I am a big green smoothie fan and this pretty much does the job and more!

    The price can be a tad hefty, but if you purchase it from Bed Bath and Beyond you can use the 20% off coupon which brought this beast of a blender down to an affordable price. Best gift the ubs could of gotten me. I use it every day, and looks nice on the couter!!

    I have a ninja. I love it and let's just say that I'm afraid to wash it because I might lose a hand. Also, If you need to get rid of a body... it might be messy, but it will get the job done. just sayin..

    I have never used a vitamix so I can't say. All I can say is that my ninja doesn't have any issue blending anything. My wife blends full pitchers of dry rice to make rice cereal for our daughter. Turns the rice into a powder.

    I don't understand why it wouldn't. Pineapple is not that hard of a substance...

    I've had my ninja pro for about 2 months now and it's held up great so far blends Ice really well and every ingredient I've used in my smoothies so far I'd recommend one for there price it's hard to beat

    Yes... it will blend pineapple and anything else you throw in there. 1/4 cup water, 2 cups frozen strawberries, and a couple tablespoons of agave nectar... BAM! Strawberry Sorbet.
