I've been looking into blenders, as a matter of fact. The old Wards Signature I've got now is still good for milk shakes, but if I'm going to get serious about blenders, I've got my eye on a KitchenAid 3-speed that may make it into the kitchen in the months ahead.
Then again, my old Sunbeam hand-mixer probably should be replaced as well... Cheesh, it's something of a spending spree I've been on lately. Got to slow it down a bit.
BTW, the KA 7-Cup is not particularly good for slicing veggies, unless you like everything sliced wafer-thin. Good for potato chips, I suppose, but generally not so useful. There are no other attachments for this unit, so someone looking for more varied slicing (and shredding) options would probably prefer some other mid-sized appliance.
Doesn't particularly bother me, but I will be on the lookout for a good manual slicing tool. I've got an IKEA visit planned for the week of Thanksgiving, so perhaps I'll get lucky there.
