    Yeah, I'd like that too, but my wife doesn't like any kind of winter squashes. If I find a knife for my new Stefan handle before you get a stick blender, I'd be happy put my blender in the box along with my knife and handle for my rehandle job I'm going to send you. My blender is pretty much shelfware although it is handy when I need it.

    well, i know its expensive but seeing as how we all have dropped so many paychecks on cutlery, it might be in order to recommend a vita prep. no need to get a new fancy CIA edition, just an older one will do just fine. i got ours at an restaurant supply auction for less than $150. there is nothing like it

    that's funny, I was using my cheapy Oster blender to make butternut squash soup last night while I was talking to you on the phone.

    I make mine with red curry, basil, chicken stock, and salt/pepper

    how bout you?

    I don't what she does but it has this hint of carrot taste to it that I love. Is that weird?

    Either spring for a Bamix or go with a cheap Cuisinart. Anything in between will be no better than the Cuisinart. I agree that if you want to puree soups, a Vita-Mix is the best thing for it. I can normally process a pot of soup in two or three batches, so it's not terribly inconvenient.
