This morning I blended up a bunch of chicken bones, milk, and dry dog food. My dog loved it. I poured it over some dry dog food and she eat it straight away, even though there was already plenty of dry dog food in her bowl. VitaMix has a 7 year warrantee. And even after seven years, repairs is incredibly easy. One simply buys the part, somewhat inexpensively, from the company and they send one the entire kit to fix the problem. I fixed a problem recently in about 4 minutes. This is one first class company I would like to work for. There may be other companies that sell monster blenders. I don't know. They may be just as good as VitaMix. VitaMix is a little expensive. But I have spent about $500 over that past 11 years on this blender, and I don't regret a penny. Our family must use it at least 6 times a day. The bottom line is that you are throwing away nutritious food when you juice, and you may be throwing away good food when you throw it out, rather than blend it up and eat it. In most cases, the pulp has more nutrition than the juice, plus, the juice has exactly zero fiber. Juicing has its place, since the nutrition "energy" to assimilation "energy" ratio is excellent. One could even combine juicing with VitaMixing. We almost always use some kind of liquid in the blender, usually water or milk, when we blend. Why not use broccoli or tomato or celery juice? This is for the true fanatic that has the time for this sort of thing.
