A blender that can handle any tough job

Willitblend We haven’t seen extreme blending like this since Dan Aykroyd was fooling around with the Bass-o-Matic. On a site called Will It Blend?, Blendtec puts its machines through hell, getting them to chop up golf balls, a rake handle, marbles—all sorts of seemingly unblendable items. The lab-coated demonstrator really likes to experiment with Coca-Cola, too. In one video, he makes a Coke smoothie, with the aluminum can included. In another, he blends a Coke and a chicken, creating a Cochicken, just in time for Thanksgiving. The site explains: “Tasks that may be extreme for some machines are, quite frankly, simple tasks for Blendtec blenders.”
