I have now burnt out my third kitchen appliance motor. The smell is so familiar and awful really. I have learned to just take it outside immediately till it cools off. This one last gasped then choked on a cucumber drink…it made a nice chunky soup after its emergency evacuation from the blender…actually it was something of a break through for me. I am now gaining an affection for cucumbers (recipe: blend 3 peeled cucumbers (organic), 4tbl. agave nectar, one lemon, 1 tsp. sea salt.). Officially it is a drink involving a sieve, I liked it chunky. I can’t remember who inspired it, I am still a little upset over the motor.
I am also gaining an affection for quality industrial motors. I found a Cuisinart food processor with a 10 year warranty on the motor. I ordered a K-tec/Blendtec HP3 Blender, it got better reviews by my various sources than the Vitamix.
I suppose it is fairwell to a fated piece of equipment, the one that really brought me into the raw…kind of a sad moment…I had sort of become attached to it and it was a gift. Sigh.
