WIRED REALLY LIKES this “absurdly powerful” blender. It seems a bit pricey to me, though, and it won’t accommodate your larger blending projects, which could be a deal-killer for some.

UPDATE: Reader John Galvin writes: “That’s not a blender. This is a blender.”

ANOTHER UPDATE: Reader Steve Ducharme prefers this gasoline-powered model. “It’s not the quietest blender, in fact it’s as loud as a chainsaw.” Vroom!

YET ANOTHER UPDATE: Making an iPhone smoothie. Thanks to reader Marc Johnson for the link. Plus, blending Bic lighters? Kids, don’t try this at home!

MORE: More blender video. And reader William Harrington notes this monster — another gas-powered job. Plus, in the “don’t try this at home” vein, reader Randy Baird sends a video of lighting a barbecue grill with liquid oxygen.
