But it is way under powered. Just because it lasts doesn't mean it's good. My Vitamix would blend my old blender into dust and keep on going without missing a beat.
    I get it and if I owned a commercial kitchen I probably would, but I don't. All I'm generally blending are things like frozen blueberries and leafy greens. Watching the Popular Mechanics video it's hard to imagine what you are claiming. The bonus, I spent the money I saved to by an omega vertical slow juicer. I use it way more than I do the blender.

    Raw quinoa
    Flax seeds
    Fresh berries
    Teaspoon of local honey
    I use some of the above, but will also add protein powder. Back in the 90's when I was working out a lot I would make recovery drinks from whey protein powder, carbohydrate powder, soy milk, some kind of fruit such as frozen mango and/or blueberries, and creatine. Now it's usually fruit, whey protein powder, and either water, nonfat milk, or almond milk.
