Ok, question for you Vitamix guys and gals.
Can you use the "wet" blade/container set up to make the flours from grains and such... perhaps it just takes longer to grind or doesn't produce a fine enough substance ?
In other words how much versatility does the dry blade/container really add for home use?
The variable speed is required.
Everywhere you go, there you are.
Bat signal out for you Vitamixers.

Don't you guys have Thermomix in the States? It can blend anything (variable speed), plus kneads dough, plus cooks (I make a mean vegetable soup and risotto), plus steams, all in one device. It is not cheap but worth every penny.
