Ok you will rarely hear me ask for advice on kitchen stuff because I just don't use the gadgets that much. Don't get me wrong I love the way they look in a kitchen and make everyone think I am an AWESOME cook, but I'm not. I can cook just don't take the time.
But I am desperately seeking advice - my blender (MY FAVORITE APPLIANCE) broke, burnt the motor, in the trash, gone to me forever, so now I'm looking for a new one. I started thinking about everything that I use a blender for and it has nothing to do with cooking - IT'S ALL ABOUT THE DRINKS!!! Not just the great and fabulous adult beverages (Frozen Daiquiris, Margaritas, Pina Colados, Bellini Cocktails, Bananas Foster, Mudslide, Bailey's Shake, Rum Runner, oh I could go on) but we make the kiddie versions too (boys love Colados, Daiquiris, and Smoothies - NO ALCOHOL, of course!).
These all look really cool and sleek and would do the job.
BUT . . .
Since I realized I don't use them for much except crushing ice and making drinks, I REALLY WANT ONE OF THESE - MARGARITAVILLE CONCOCTION MAKER. Birthday and anniversary are coming up if hubby and/or dear, sweet, loving friends are reading - PLEASE I WILL BE GOOD AND MAKE PLENTY FOR EVERYONE!
So I'm asking - What do you like/dislike about your blenders? What brand do you use?
