It is coveted. It inspires obsession. It is the best blender on the market right now. It’s the Vitamix. During the regular year, some models of this beloved kitchen appliance retail for as much as $550. That’s a hefty price tag for a blender, but this magical gadget will prove itself to be invaluable in your kitchen: Yes, it makes smooth, creamy smoothies, pureeing entire vegetables and pieces of fruit, but it can also whip up guacamole, ice cream, nut butter and nut milk from scratch, and hot soup without the use of the stove. This is not just a tool for people who like to drink their kale, it’s a tool for any home cook who wants to make creating lunch, dinner, and the occasional snack quick and easy. But the Vitamix comes at a cost—a huge cost—and so it’s not always an easy to gift to justify. Enter Sur La Table, which has a Black Friday Deal on this blender that you won’t want to miss.

The Vitamix Explorian 48 ounce blender, which usually retails for $349 will be on sale for $299 as part of Sur La Table’s upcoming Black Friday deals (though if you try looking for the markdown now, just know that it hasn’t gone live yet). Sure, it’s still a splurge, but think about the look on your loved one’s face when she opens the package and sees the Vitamix, which she has been pining over all year, thinking that the price was just out of range. Isn’t it worth it, just for that look of complete joy? The answer you’re looking for is yes.

Plus, if you live with the person for whom you are gifting the Vitamix, think about all the treats you’ll be getting out of it. Breakfast smoothies before work, handmade sorbet—this thing can even knead pizza dough. It’s truly the futuristic multi-tasker that will take you and your family’s cooking game to the next level. Be the best gift giver at Christmas this year. Get the Vitamix.
