Many expensive blenders claim to pulverize seeds. If this is true, why do I still need the Smoothie Press?
We've tried several blenders from $25 to $800 and even though they break down some of the seeds, most leave you with unblended seeds and a hard, sand-like grit to drink.
You can pay as much as $1,600 on a blender but why? Just use any blender then put your blended smoothie in the Smoothie Press. Problem solved.
