I want to buy a blender or food processor. I think at this point I want a blender. I want to make things like tabbouleh, hummus, guacamole, etc. I want to be able to blend items together.

Every blender I look at online has zillions of negative reviews and I'm starting to just get confused. What blenders do you guys have that are dependable and will blend, chop, and just plain be awesome?

Any insight is appreciated.

Hubs researched blenders quite a bit last summer to replace our old classic Osterizer. When all was said and done, he bought another Osterizer from Costco, I believe, or may be Target. Anyways it wasn't expensive and we have been thrilled with it. I see Amazon is selling them very inexpensively.

Hey there, i bought a refurbished demo model Vitamix 5200 a few years back and have never been disappointed with it. It has a hefty price tag, but you really do get what you pay for. I use mine on a daily basis. Green smoothies for breakfast are the cat's pajamas!

However, i think a food processor is more handy than a blender when it comes to making the things you mentioned. I say this because a food processor is easier to clean, plus it is easier to remove the blended or chopped product. To me, a blender is best for smoothies, shakes, and liquefying stuff.

Have you considered one of those blender/food processor combinations? I don't know anything about ratings, but one machine that takes the place of two would be a big hit in my kitchen.
