Hey guys, i was wondering if any of you have a l'equip blender. I found them and they are near as good (by specifications) as a vitamix. And the price is awesome. I found one for $119.95 with free shipping. Let me know what you think before I buy eh?

I have no idea how good these products are but they sure sound good. They have an entire line. I for one am going to be looking into them. :D

I own one. Up until the motor burned out, it worked great! But don't let the motor burning out deter you...they DO have a warranty, I just haven't sent mine in to the company as of yet. But it works great with blending, it grinds flax seeds, grinds nuts and grains and blends well. I really like it a lot and miss it gravely (I'm using an old standby until it gets repaired/replaced).
I won't say it's as good as a Vitamix (never used one) but it does work well.

I was looking into getting a vitamix but they are just so expensive!! Now I hear of this and well it is so in my price range. The reviews I have seen were not the best though. I really just want it to be able to make pureed fruit/juice and nut butters. I have found nowhere that says it will do this? I am going to keep researching. Hopefully someone here can answer this for me :confused:

I hope tha to mean it will do the nut butters as I am looking for that function too. I just can't afford the vitamix and I think vitamix charges that much just because they can. I think the l'equip will suffice until I win the lottery he he
Thanks for your input Rawkinlocs. :-)

I don't think it'll make nut butters...but then again I've never tried it...but that's not one of it's claims (I don't think...)
The Champion juicer does and you may be able to catch one used on eBay (I got mine used - not on eBay, but from one of the members here - and paid only $100 for it plus s/h)
I've also read people on this board who said they've made it in a food processor but you have to add some kind of oil to it to help it along. I know that I came close to (accidentally) making nut butter out of walnuts one time in my processor. But then walnuts are a lot softer than almonds too.
Why not call the L'Equip company and ask them if their blender will do nut butters.

I have an L'Equip like you are speaking about. I like it very much. I have not tried grinding nuts as I have a coffee grinder I use for that. Otherwise I am happy with it. My daughter has a vita-mix and her husband says mine does all theirs does, and they make nut milk.
