I am "discussing" with myself whether to lash out and purchase one of the Magic Bullet Blenders that have just started to be advertised on Cable TV in Australia. It looks like it would be really good, but a bit expensive. I notice that Tigger 57 says that she likes hers. Anyone else have an opinion? I hope that this request re. a specific product is not against the messageboard rules. If so, I apologize, but I have not seen any other product like it - are there other blenders out there that aren't such a hassle to wash, wipe and store and the monster that I currently have?
