Can You Recommend a Good Blender?

Good Questions

Q: Do you have any blender recommendations? My mother offered to buy me a fancy one for my birthday.

Do you have any suggestions for a good one that will blend up some rocking margaritas for much less then what a Vita-Mix costs?

Perhaps in the $80 range, or less?

Sent by SarahEditor: Sarah, the Vita-Mix is indeed a gem, but also very expensive. Here are a couple other blenders we've recommended in the past.

The Magic Bullet - As seen on TV? Yes. We actually really like this blender for smoothies and mixed drinks. We also like how it comes with different sizes of jars. But the 50 comments on the post were divided; some readers really don't like this blender. Others swear by it.

Waring Pro Blender - This is a solid, dependable, good all-round blender. It's a little more expensive than your price range above, but you can often find good deals. It's currently about $105 on Amazon.

Readers, do you have other recommendations for dependable, reasonably-priced blenders?
