Do I need both a VitaMix and A Juicer? - Cookware

Vegetables are another story. So, I've decided to invest in a VitaMix on the theory that I can throw raw vegetables in the VitaMix, blend and drink. May or may not be the most palatable thing in the world, but at least I'll know I am eating the recommended number of vegetables, which has been a problem for me since I eat out so much and many of the restaurants near my workplace think vegetables are iceberg lettuce and potatoes, and I am really not in the mood after a long workday to come home and chop and steam vegetables.

Anyway, I am considering the professional Vita Mix Vita-Prep 3 Blender, which according to the advertising "has more power to handle the thickest, toughest ingredients!

Though silicone is nonstick, many reviews advised to lightly oil spray the cups before filling with batter. Worked like a charm. The cornbread loaf recipe made more than the 12-cup muffin tin could hold so I filled the silicone and paper liners almost to the top of the rim - only supposed to fill cups 2/3 full but I pushed it.
