Ours pretty much quit this past weekend, but it was at least 10 years old, probably much older. I'm looking for recommendations for a new one. What you got?
Wife bought me a Ninja a couple years ago for Christmas. I thought it was frivolous but man oh man, I do love that thing. It's an amazing blender.
The big Ninja is what I got my wife, she uses it at least daily...Its awesome!
my wife just bought a ninja she loves it.
Good deal, which one do y'all have?Yep, that's what Tracy bought for me. I don't use mine as often as your wife uses hers but that thing is a beast!! I think you could cut up a car bumper with it
Since getting it, she has been making sauces with sautéed apples and pears, Chili Verde, and enchilada sauces. Did some pulled top round enchiladas with sauce made from 3 different blended chilis....YUM. I've been bad at not taking pics.....Yep, that's what Tracy bought for me.

That's interesting, noboundaries. When I got my Blendtec it came with both the Wildside cup and the Standard cup, which was used about 75% of the time. After about 8 years of pretty heavy use, something on the Regular cup went and all the blade would do is wobble in it's fitting. I contacted Blendtec and they replaced it under warranty without any hassle.I have a Blendtec. I've used the heck out of it. 1500 watts is plenty of power, but I doubt I'd buy another one. The jars are the weak point. I've had two fail with proper handling (hand-wash only) and replacements are NOT cheap ($100-$130). I use the Wildside and Twister jar (two regular jars failed and I didn't bother replacing the second one). This blender makes INCREDIBLY smooth and creamy peanut butter with the Twister jar. Peanuts and salt only. No oil required. Pulse some peanuts to add to the creamy for chunky peanut butter. Blendtec jars have a 7-year warranty. Yeah, not long enough.
I watched several comparison tests on YouTube. The KitchenAid performed WAY better than my Blendtec. So, if my Blendtec failed today, I'd probably get the KA blender.
I have an Oster I bought more than 40 years ago. It still works great for margaritas but doesn't perform like the Blendtec for making smoothies, sauces, cream soups, and nut butters. It's only like 500 watts or less. I keep it with our camping gear nowadays.
