I'm asking your opinions based on your experience with this piece of equipment. I was going to buy a vitamix XL wich is a 1.5 gallon blender, but when I saw that it was almost 2K I got discouraged, that's not the kind of money that I want to spend on a blender.
What I need is a tool to blend 2-4 Gallon batches of cream soup, broccoli, asparagus, carrots and so on, and as you know at first is chunky and I want to get a good base for the soup, I'm not looking for a perfect puree, since I strain it anyway, but I need something that makes my team work more efficiently and more convenient in terms of labor.
I own a Robot coupe and a waring food processor and IMHO the Robot coupe gets the upper hand (I'm not complaining about the waring, both get the job done but I prefer the RC by far) so, I trust this brand big time but since I don't have experience with the power mixer, I'm asking you.
All your advice and opinions will be more than welcome, and also if you know of a good online dealer of this brand, it will be appreciated too. I'm in México but I have a shipping adress in the U.S. So, consider it a domestic order.
