bumping....

I'm thinking about getting one. My current juicer is driving me insane. it spits out so much pulp (which is such a waste) and is a PAIN to clean.

I believe the company is based on Cleveland. There's an outlet store about 20 minutes away. I called and they start at $379.

Is there a middle of the road blender that does well with vegetables (carrots, beets, celery) like the vitamix or a juicer.

Right now I'm using a juicer for my veggies and my stick blender for fruit smoothies
