Death comes for the blender

11 May

My SmartPower Duet Blender/Food Processor died less than an hour ago. It was less than three months old but had encountered heavy use over the course of the last five weeks. It served me well over that time. When it happened, I was in the middle of making a No-Bake Black Bottom-Peanut Butter Silk Pie from Vegan with a Vengeance to celebrate the end of classes. I hadn’t quite finished with the parts of the recipe that called for the blender, but all of what remained to do with the blender was just mixing, so I was able to finish with a spoon.

I’m very lucky that this didn’t happen until after I got my jaw unwired. On the liquid diet, I’d use the blender several times a day, but now I only need it occasionally.

I bought the blender at Costco, so I’m hoping that I’ll be able to exchange it for a functional blender. I might try to get a different model, since I never really found anything I wanted to do with the food processor.
