Why Spend Hundreds of Dollars for a Blender?

First off, let’s answer the question:  why does anyone even need a two, three, or even a six hundred dollar blender?  Won’t any blender do the job?

The truth is high-powered blenders such as the Vitamix or Ninja are necessary for blending up tough ingredients and pulverizing them releasing the essential nutrients inside.
