A $429 Blender?

worth it?Catherine Price at Slate has written a paean to her beloved Vitamix, which she spent $429 on and would grab on her way out if her house was on fire:

“When you first buy a Vitamix 5200, the so-called Ferrari of blenders, two thoughts are likely to pass through your mind. The first is “Did I really just spend more than $400 on a blender?” And the second is “This machine is going to change my life.””
