Considering a Vitamix Blender -- Anyone Have an Opinion?

Three years ago, I reviewed several juicers in detail before settling on the Omega masticating juicer, and it's been great.

But ever since, my buddy Frank has been trying to convince me to get a Vitamix. He says he uses the Vitamix several times per day, vs. less than once a week for his juicer. I was over at his house the other day, and he gave me the full court press sales pitch. So of course I video taped it! Let me know what you think: Is a Vitamix more useful than a Juicer?

Also, the Vitamix isn't cheap! The 750 professional series is $650 on Amazon. There are cheaper ones though, as low as $481. If you don't mind refurbished, you can get an older open box version from Amazon Warehouse for the mid $300s.

Juicing and Jazz

On Man of the Couch

This post has nothing to do with jazz, I'm just a sucker for alliteration. It does, however, have everything to do with juicing. We're currently borrowing a juicer from a co-worker so if we don't like it and don't want to stick with it we aren't out a couple hundred bucks.

I feel like the benefits of juicing are pretty well known. If you don't know then here's a simple yet highly scientific formula:

Juice+excercise+radiation = Superhero

exercise+radiation-juice = Side-kick

Aside from not wanting to be a lame sidekick, we are also interested in the nutritional benefits. It's a quick easy way to take care of a couple servings of fruits and vegetables. Something we're both not very good at. Plus I watched "Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead" and it scared me straight.
