You might try to find a second hand Vita-Mix that hasn't been used much. If you looked closely enough you might even find a late model still in the box.

Just my opinion.

I agree. No sense at all.

Less is not more. More is more and more is fabulous.

Have you considered a Magic Bullet? I bought one recently. I got it at Costco for about $50 and it has a blender container along with all the smaller jars. I like that I can grind spices, etc. with it, but I have only tried grinding coffee with it so far.

When I was researching grinding devices, I came across an Indian cooking forum and a discussion of "mixie" blenders. They are powerful blenders made in India. They can wet or dry grind spices. For examples of mixies: 550 Watts Mixer grinder 110Volt Indian Mixie Butterfly Preethi Sumeet Premier Reviews Best price USA

I use an immersion blender for soup, and it has a whisk attachment which is a nice bonus.
