I need to purchase two new blenders. The ones at the beach are in constant use by our renters, (who doesn’t like a round of margaritas by the pool), and consistently broken. In the three years that we’ve owned a beach house I’ve purchased four blenders. We keep two in the house and this year another two are in need of replacement. I’m not certain if the blenders are broken because of constant wear and tear or poor manufacturing. Up until now I’ve purchased moderately priced appliances, but that approach clearly isn’t working. I should either buy more expensive blenders in the hopes that they’ll last through through a number of rental seasons or purchase a large supply of inexpensive blenders knowing that they’ll need to be replaced each summer.
Since I’m not certain which approach to take I’m not certain where to begin. Usually I know what item I wish to purchase, so I head right over to froogle to find the store with the cheapest price. I tried this tonight but with so many blenders on the market it’s difficult to decide whether to go the expensive route or find the cheapest ones available.
I googled for blender bargains but couldn’t find any current offerings. I visited the clearance section of various online shopping sites but came up empty handed. So I’m asking the readers of this blog… how would you search for bargain blenders? Any input you can provide would be greatly appreciated.
