i agree, routine maintenance on a blender does seem a bit extreme. but most machines have some design flaw! we're cool with that, it's like a hobby.

Wouldn't you just love it if someone put a dead iPhone (or reasonable imitation) into one of these, both to see the mayhem and to see if the Blender could handle it? Of course, they'd have to put the video on You-Tube & post the link somehow on woot! as woot! says - given this isn't shipped by Schmuck-Poast, it might actually still be topical.

After cleaning it out, they'd stick in some hard-boiled eggs (no shells) and whole tomatoes, blend them and state "And it keeps on - oh darn it - ticking! It isn't supposed to make that odd whining noise either, is it?"

i did balljoints/inner & outer tie rod ends/sway bar links/bushings and a radiator this week, in my spare time. what is that, a 10$ part?




I bet even Joe the Plumber knows that we usually put the $ in front of the amount. It doesn't make sense, but that's the way we do it.

As for the blender, I don't think it has tie rods.

This is an AWESOME price! I have this blender. I worked at Crate and Barrel and bought this blender and the breville die cast espresso maker (which was on woot not long ago) w/ my discount. Damn you woot! Even after my discount, I still paid way more. This blender is AMAZING. It can crush ice into snow. No need to use a spatula to knock ice off the walls of the jar. It makes awesome smoothies. Just press the smoothie button and walk away. If you want an awesome blender at an awesome price, get this. I wish I had known this was going to be on woot.

Explanation from "Common Errors in English Usage"

http://wsu.edu/~brians/errors/errors.html


CANNOT/CAN NOT

These two spellings are largely interchangeable, but by far the most common is “cannot” and you should probably use it except when you want to be emphatic: “No, you can not wash the dog in the Maytag.”



Original post was "I am not sure I can believe someone who can not spell." This seems to me to require extra emphasis on the "not," which appears to be acceptable but less standard usage.

No, no, no - everyone is seeing this incorrectly. It is SUPPOSED to be: “No, you may not wash the dog in the Cantag.”

Or is it Cat-tag?

Wow I got this blender from Williams Sonoma a year ago and it's been great... and I bet this price is half of what I got it for! WIlliams Sonoma doesn't just carry carp brands either - this is one of the few blenders they did carry because it was good.

This Woot is probably one of the best because it's one of the best products in its class. When they sell Dysons it's very good but they have a Dyson at least once every month... but they rarely have something this good! If you're at all interested in mix drinks or smoothies this is for you - even a simple 2 scoops of vanilla ice cream + 8 oreo cookies = great oreo shake!

And to add some more (I swear I'm not a breville salesman, I just own the darn thing and love it) - this blender is glass, not plastic (less possibility of weird tastes that stick and stain on plastic) and it's so easy to clean. The bottom detaches from the top area and you can clean the entire thing (great for when you do fruit smoothies) - this isn't a feature found in all blenders. If you've ever owned a cheap 1-piece blender you know how hard it is to clean the bottom of that thing (and cut up your sponge in the process)

I work as a sales associate at Bed Bath and Beyond.

I can vouch that this blender is amazing. It isn't the most powerful blender around but there are some key things that make it amazing. Complete diecast frame allows prevents and cracking from the power and torque of the motor. The motor is direct-drive which means that there aren't any additional moving parts from the motor assembly to the blades. The blades themselves are uniquely designed to be shaped along the bottom part of the jar. Which means that no clumps of food will get stuck between the blades and the very bottom of the jar, which allows a consistent blend without jiggling the base of the blender or jar.

And Breville specifically makes high end (quality) small appliances. I have a few products I have from incentive that are from Breville including a juicer (max speed is 13,000 rpms), among other stuff.

The price, even for a respiffied, is amazing for what this blender has to offer.

PM me if you have any questions.

I view acceptable as correct, especially if the intent was to show emphasis. Incorrect would be something like, "Gov. Palin has all ready shot her moose."

Actually both are correct in this context...read this post from http://alexfiles.com/cannot.shtml

There is a grammatical misunderstanding common to many U.S. Americans, largely because we learned about grammar in the either/or terms of right vs. wrong. Here's the misunderstanding: can not or cannot? My public school teachers said can not was the correct form, and that cannot was a corruption. A friend of mine from a previous generation was taught the opposite. Her son, much better at using the language than either of us, said both were right, but usage depended on context.

Here's the explanation: If I can not do something, then I can also do it. I can not write these words if I choose (and you may think I shouldn't), but I also can, and am, writing them. What I cannot do is know who will read them, or what they will think. I can imagine such things, but I'm limited by my experience and perceptions. So this is the rule: if you either could or could not do something, then you use two words, because you can leave out the second word if you so choose. If you could not do something no matter how much you desired or tried, then you use one word, cannot. There is no other option.

Sometimes both are true. Witness:

I cannot change the world.

I can not change the world.

It's true, I cannot change the world. What I mean, and what many mean when they say or think this to themselves, is that the world's problems are too big for any one person, or group of people, to take on. Poverty, sickness, hatred, love, weather, earthquakes, political and religious differences—these are inevitable conditions. Even Jesus said, "the poor you will have with you always," and, "Let the dead bury the dead."

It's also true that I can change the world. I, and every other person on the planet, can make a difference. We can give to the poor, and try to cure ourselves of the sickness of wealth (more on that later). We can be courteous, we can provide emotional (listening) or physical (assisting) or financial (donating) help to others, we can feed and help and forgive each other. (More about forgiveness later, too.) We can take in an abandoned dog or cat and give it love. We can plant a garden. We can put in a day's work and know we earned our pay, and someone, hopefully, was the better for it. We can not cut off someone in traffic. We can dedicate our lives to healing. We can dedicate our lives to loving our family and community. We can respect the differences of others. In other words, what we can do, we can do.

Grammar is the tool we use to communicate and should be taught as such. Our bodies, our minds, and our voices are the tools we have to interact with our universe. We must use them while we live; we cannot evade using them except through death or dire injury. In this sense we cannot not change the world. And now, while the world suffers on every level, from the sky to the deeps of the sea, from humans to tiny coral polyps, we can make what time we have count.

Don't berate yourself for previous behavior. Don't congratulate yourself, either. Just take the next opportunity to make a difference to the next person, and help make what we cannot change bearable.

Funny thing about blenders: I've bought two in my life, used each perhaps less than five times at which they were put away. After that, I performed whatever I needed them for by hand & even when I went looking for them I couldn't find all of the parts necessary to either blend or keep the kitchen from getting splattered.

Oh - given the "magnified" picture, they've got a tool for "blade removal only". This immediately makes me chuckle, wondering if the blade sometimes exits the blender suddenly and lodges itself in the owner's forehead. Makes for a good Halloween thought, in any case.

Cripes! My (actual) Seven-Hundred-and-Third post never even appeared... The woot! censors are being extremely vigilant tonight.

edit: This ought to have been my 704'th.

2nd edit: Wow! I now have two 706'th postings! That's amazing (presuming both continue to remain to be seen).

3rd edit: And now this is my third 706'th. May I please work as a software engineer at woot! ?
