I have seen a few fourms about appliances. There seem to be a lot out there! I need as least expensive as possible! But still things that will do the job. I have this cheap blender that I dislike a lot! I need a food processor, blender, dehydrator. All together it cannot be over 250.00. SO I am limited. Will be feeding myself and my husband. Any ideas? I am thinking a definite on the saladacco! Has anyone used or heard any feedback on the Jack LaLanne Blender? Its within my price range, but I have seen a lot of mixed reviews. Is there a blender/processor that works? Thats what mine is and it doesnt cut it! I was thinking if there is a blender that doubles as a processor that would save $$. I am hunting! If anyone has ideas please send them my way!!!
