What is the difference between an expensive blender, like a $500 Vitamix, and one that is half of that price, or even less... like lets say Breville, Cuisinart, Oster, etc?
In otherwords, what defines these different price tiers of blenders?
It's obvious that the more expensive ones are probably going to be more heavy duty, with better materials, or whatever. But what else is it?

kefir versus buttermilk

Flavor question, but maybe it holds some intriguing science, who knows yet:
Baking some cod tonight. Dry, wet, dry.
Flour with some cajun spice, wet, then panko.
For the wet, I usually use something like buttermilk or milk. Don't have any now, so I used Kefir instead.
Curiosity led me to taste the kefir before giving the dregs to my dog. Tasted very close to buttermilk.
The question: Any reason to use kefir instead of buttermilk when baking fish, chicken, et al? Or otherwise?
Price could ultimately dictate this decision.
Boning & Paring knives.....help
2 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: Z.jpg]
Looking to purchase a boning and paring knife. Prices and reviews vary. Hard to make a decision. I won't use them daily, but would like a good knife that will last.
I was looking into the Global G21. It's pretty pricy, but would love recommendations for something better around the same price if not cheaper.
Reason I looked at Global is because I was gifted a their chef knife last year, amd it has done me justice. Sinve the money will be coming out of my pocket this time, I would like to make a wiser decision.
As far as paring knives go, I don't know where to start.
Recommendations would greatly be appreciated. I understand this is not the request thread, but I figured I would most likely find great advice here.
