My Christmas gift is on it's way. I ended up ordering from Bed, Bath and Beyond w/ 20% off coupon. They didn't have the option to buying the vitamix long skinny spatulas though. I've read that the long slender container is hard to get things like nut butters out of. So, is it worth buying them seperately? They are sold in 3 packs, for $10.90 w/ shipping.
