If you haven’t seen it already, check out the Will It Blend website. There are a bunch of videos of a guy blending things that just shouldn’t be blended. For instance he blends a night at the movies into a smoothie. That consists of a coke, – still in the can – a DVD, and cup of popcorn kernels.
Even more crazy he blends 50 marbles into a dust I’m sure would be a very effective chemical weapon.
I’ve always felt our blender kind of sucked. It was a cheap blender and it isn’t very good at blending anything complicated. So I went to the BlendTech website to look at it from a cooks point of view. You go to this page and watch videos of them blending stuff you can eat.
I watched the bread dough out of curiosity after having spent a few hours this weekend making bread. It was cool the blender will grind your grain into flour for you. Talk about fresh. Next he made the whole dough right in the blender. I’m not sure how that would work and I couldn’t see the end of the view because WMV sucks. The ice cream was also impressive, though that’s more a sorbet than ice cream.
Of course the biggest problem with the blender is that it is $399. I understand good gear requires money, but I’m not sure I’m ready to fork out that much. I’d want to use it for a while first.
