Vitamix - which one?
I'm considering getting a vitamix. I have burned up too many blenders in my life. I've heard the vitamix can handle just about anything. Does it matter which vitamix you get if you want to use it on things more difficult to process than soft fruits and vegetables? I'm thinking of things like:
- grinding dried beef for pemmican (my regular blender handled it well, but had some worry)
- grinding nuts for nut butters
- making my own coconut butter (apparently this requires 15 minutes of processing.)
- grinding other dehydrated, hard items, such as dried sweet potatoes, into powder
They have an entry-level machine. The only difference I can see on the site is what kinds of buttons and accessories it comes with. The accessories aren't important to me. Is the machine as durable and strong as the other models?
