so I'm really on the fence as to buying a vita-mix 5200 or a blendtec. One of the supposed-pros of the VM is being able to make hot soups. I'm wondering, though, if the VM heats things up too quickly, presenting a problem with keeping foods raw. Like with raw nut butter for example, this takes a little time to make and I'm wondering if the nut butter ends up warm and is therefore not truly raw anymore? Maybe it only gets warm but not over 110 degrees F.
Also, I was wondering if the wet jug of the VM 5200 is adequate for grains/beans/nut butters, or if people feel like you need the dry jug and blades. Any information about this would be appreciated as well as anything else that might make the BT versus VM decision easier.
