'Tis a sad day...
My poor little blender finally kicked the bucket this morning. And not something easily replaceable! The whole blade gear snapped in half! I guess being a smoothie fanatic finally caught up with me.
I had been reading about high-quality blenders, but the cost has always kept me at bay. I thought "well, I've gotten by on my $20-$30 blenders this long... they work well, right?" And they did... until I really started to use them!
This is my second broken blender in 9 months. Gaaa!! With the frequency I use them, and the volume of produce and frozen fruits that go in them, perhaps it's time to shell out for something sturdier.
Rest In Pieces, Blendy.
