Why spend the money? Mostly because it is an investment in health. Better way to spend money than booze/clubs, imo, which is how most of the people my age spend their money. People spend that much mostly because they can. O.o
There are much worse ways to spend money.
OK but you can use the 400 dollars to buy like half a years worth of organic produce. I never said spend it on clubs and heroin, lol.
Get a 100 dollar blender, then. Honestly, I've used a 40 dollar Oyster or whatever they are called and no chunks of even dinosaur kale chunks. The thing with blenders is that I do not favor the heat; in juicing we are a bit wary of the centrifugal generated heat and I'm afraid it may be the same thing with high-speed blenders. I've seen some research that stated cold pressed vs regular juicers has up 5-10 times more nutrient consistency. I like to just either lightly saute, for a stir-fry, or just eat the greens raw and "chew my liquids, drink my solids".
But go for it. Sorry, don't mean to convince you otherwise.
Edit: optimusjoel, rep'd. that blender is 70 bucks and I'm certain it works absolutely fine.
