I've been wanting/needing a new food processor and blender for a long time and have been wanting a stand mixer as well, so we decided to invest in some good kitchen equipment with some of our tax return. Here's what I'm getting :
A kitchenaid stand mixer- I also got the grating, slicing, & other accessories so I can use it for slicing/ grating lots of veggies.
A vitamax blender- besides regular blending functions, this makes whole foods blend to smoothies and makes incredibly creamy sauces, nut butters, grinds grains, and all the rest with a 7 year warranty. I have a friend who is ordering several of these for the restaurant she manages, so she is ordering one for me at their cost (about half!) It's still expensive, but together these two quality machines will replace several others and hopefully last longer than the cheaper food processors and blenders I've bought over the years. Besides, with our family eating more and more vegetables, I need some good tools!
