    I am thinking about getting the Nutribullet (http://www.nutribullet.com/) because I am just not eating enough raw fruits/veggies in general. I read some reviews and, I think for the majority, they are good (mostly 4 out of 5).

    Do you have something similar to this? How do you like it?

    I bought a Hamilton Beach personal blender from Target for less than $30. It's not bad if you just want something to blend your protein powders. But I'm not sure it would be good for anything heavy duty.

    Look into the Ninja Master Prep Pro. for about $60. In the latest Consumer Reports issue it came out #1 of all blenders tested beating both Vitamixes and Blendtecs.
    As well the Ninja Professional came in 3rd at about $100 still beating the most pricey Vitamix..

    Personally, the only food item I make with blenders is gazpacho. And a plain old heavy-duty waring blender does it fine. That's what I've always used in the lab to liquify and homogenize food samples.

    Note also that instead of those various custom-made cups and such that fit on to the various expensive blenders, a plain old mason jar will screw onto any waring blender base. Just flip it over and exchange the base for a lid.

    Ninja is amazing

    I've used both the small $40 version (which is perfect for single serving shakes) and the larger $150. Both blend well, but the smaller one was 100x easier to keep everything clean. I keep it soaked in soapy water in between uses.
