My hubby and I recently dished out the dough for a reconditioned Vitamix from E-bay. It still comes with the 7 year warranty, which was enough to get us over the price a little ($440 US with the "dry" container for flours, etc.).
So far, what I love the MOST - making my own ICE CREAM!!! I can substitute my rice milk, add some fruit or fruit juice and honey, and PRESTO! I haven't been able to eat ice cream in sooooo long - it has done wonders for my spirit.
To anyone reading this post that hasn't tried a juicer yet... I can't say enough good things about
mine. I wish I would have bought one sooner.
