The Magic Bullet

I was restlessly watching TV last night, which is something I very rarely do. I watched about 15 minutes of that old infomercial about the Magic Bullet blender-thing. I'm wise to all their tricks of course. Sure, you can create a delicious pasta sauce in seconds so dinner is ready in six seconds! But who stood over the pasta while it cooked and made sure it didn't boil over? How many seconds did that take? And honestly, I can make quesadillas just as fast with a bag of pre-shredded cheese. Who needs to go to all the trouble of grating a chunk of parmesan? I bet it takes forever to wash all those blades and containers, too. I switched the TV off when they got to the part about the juicing attachment because I could feel that the seduction was working. I've always been a sucker for infomercials.

So now I want a Magic Bullet food processor, but I don't know if I actually need one.
