I recently found this amazing blender at one of my favorite thrift stores and it only set me back $5. When I saw the little old man bringing it out from the back room, freshly priced and cleaned, I nearly ripped it from his hands. "I'll take that mister! Gimmeeeee!" He then reassured me that he'd just tested it and it worked perfectly so I made out with him for a bit and then carried my new baby home. I am so happy that I finally found a replacement for my long lost Oster Beehive blender that died on me a few months ago. As an avid smoothie consumer, a good blender is an integral part of my kitchen and let me tell you, I can't handle having a new and/or ugly faux vintage blender on my counter every day.
I made my first smoothie in it today and it works SO well...that cyclomatic intergalactic power really gets it whipped, chopped, stirred and grated in a matter of seconds. I'm in love.
