Here is another powerful, compact blender for your smoothies and soups. The NutriBullet RX Commercial 1700w Blender has a 2.3hp motor to take on the toughest food ingredients. It also has a 7 minute heating cycle for soups, sauces, and warm beverages.
This blender comes with a 30oz short cup and a 45oz oversized cup with a lid. Not too expensive either. You can find out more here.
