We bought one last May at Costco and I have used it everyday since we bought it. I drink green smoothies everyday and have also used it to make fruit ices, coffee drinks, pureed soups, salad dressings, nut milks, nut butters and probably some things that I can't remember. We all love it and haven't regretted buying it for a second. I hesitated about four years because I thought it was too expensive and I already had a blender and a food processor. And I will now say that I was just wrong, wrong, wrong. Vitamix Rocks.
