Vitamix A2300 Ascent Series Smart Blender | $450 | 18% Off | Amazon
You could buy a blender that’ll break within a year or so, or you can buy this Vitamix for 18% off. The stainless steel blades are built to last and can stand up to the toughest ingredients. The friction is so strong, it can even blend hot soups, if you ask it nicely. Its container design promotes a “vortex,” pushing bits down and toward the blades, creating a smooth concoction. And if your food processor has been long gone, use this blender to chop nuts for your holiday baking too. There’s very little a Vitamix cannot do—so this bad boy’s an investment for a lifetime.
