A Trip Down the Amazon

I began thinking tonight that I needed something to blog concerning something periodically that would get people to thinking or, at least, reading about that thing.  Many bloggers do this and I enjoy a lot of those blogs.  I tried to think of the things I do a lot of:  video games, scrabble, computer issues, spirituality, and all of that is important to me.  So, there may be the occasional posting topic.  However, I decided that the one thing I do that might interest most readers are the things and values I buy on Amazon.

I have simplified my life immensely by becoming immersed in the purchase of items I use all the time.  I buy foods, vitamins, herbs, and then general things I decide merit my attention or interest.

So, about once a week (or whenever my brain allows me to remember) I will post one of the above.  This week is the Magic Bullet Mixing System.

I guess I should say “Blender” instead of “Mixer” as that’s the wording at the site.  The above picture was found on Google and is, almost (If not), exactly the same as the pic in the link.

I had my first one, given to me by my daughter, for about 3-6 years (a reasonable guess).  She gave it to me when she got another system and had the one I got for about 3-4 years.  So, the system itself lasted, being well-used, for 6-10 years.  I never bought any new parts.  Don’t know what the warranty is/was.  I knew it worked, so good enough for me.  In fact, when I threw the old one away, it turns out it may have been fine.  It would not blend and I figured, since it had been stopping at times, it must have burned its 240W motor out.  I used it daily for the smoothies and other diet drinks I had (check out the blog posts on health).  It worked well and hard.  I know my daughter used it daily for smoothies.  Anyway, back to the story.  When I ordered the new one from Amazon it didn’t work the first time I used it.  I remember sighing with the thought of sending something I really used back.  I made my chocolate milk (Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk, Stevia, and Organic Cocoa Powder) daily (sometimes 2-3 times) with it.  Then I thought that, maybe, the new glasses worked better than the old with the new system.  It started right up.  Turns out there are 3 little plastic prongs on each cup and they all have to fit into the blender to work.  Well, one of the plastic prongs was broken.  In fact, I broke a second one about a week later.  It turns out you can buy spare glasses, but I imagine I am just a bit rough on mine, especially since I didn’t know they were THAT important.  It, apparently took over 6 years to break the first one, after all!

Digression seems to be deeply in my nature, so back to it.  The cups are about 16 oz (2 cups).  It takes almost 2 of those to fill my 30oz Big Bubba cup (perhaps, covered in another post someday).  I used it for many drinks – low carb ice cream, almond milk, and Cocoa Powder, for one.  The cost was just about $32 and my use of Amazon Prime to cover the shipping $.

I hope this prompts you to, at least, look at the link above and consider purchasing one if you are so inclined.  I think you can buy a cheaper set at Walmart, but I believe it is only a 7-piece (oh, and the instruction booklet counts as a piece, yeah, I looked for that 11th piece for a bit!

Namaste,

Scott
