VitaMix Blender, is it worth it?

I hear what everyone else is saying, but here are my two cents:

First, unlike most everything else out there, it is made in the US, from start to finish, and I value our tradesmen. As such, I feel that alone makes the case. That said, my wife and I use it every day. We grind grain to make flour, make peanut butter, almond butter, etc., smoothies, various soups, creams, etc...

We spent money once, and we are enjoying the ease with which this machine does everything.

If you can afford to spend the money, and care about supporting workers in this country, you should get it, and I promise you will not be sorry. If you feel you will need it once every two weeks or so, forget it, you can get something for far less, and will likely still find it suitable.

Chipped knife - how far can it be ground down?

Globals do carry a lifetime warranty. Seems to me like this is a legitimate warranty claim.

Re-seasoning cast iron?

I use a wire brush attachment for my cordless drill. It makes life far easier. Just do this outside, because it can get messy. Buy a large stiff wire brush attachment (steel wire, not copper) and it will last for ever.
