slightly off-topic, but any info will aid me in more vegancoooking! Are there any ways (other than ebay) that any of you have gotten your hands on a vitamix or blendtec blender for less than full price? i'm just wondering if there are any websites with good deals that i'm not finding through google. i'm a bit wary of getting appliances off of ebay just because i'm afraid they'll come broken and i'll lose out on my $$$. the blender i have right now is fine for basic stuff, but not powerful to do really good, smooth, green smoothies and some other stuff i've been wanting to try.
