Vitamix 5200 Blender Giveaway

Vitamix® 5200 Blender Giveaway

‘Tis the month for fabulous giveaways, apparently. I sure don’t hear anyone complaining. (You guys love giveaways as much as I do, that much is obvious). And speaking of, don’t forget that today is the last day to enter the DeLallo giveaway for your chance to win a year’s worth of whole wheat pasta. Carbolicious.

Today, however, one lucky L&OO reader will win a Vitamix 5200 Blender! I am SO excited to be able to give one of these away today, considering it really is one of the most used appliances in our kitchen.

Let me tell you, this thing is WAY MORE than just a blender.

Take yesterday’s no-bake pie, for example. Not only does it liquefy bananas, it also crushes cookies, grinds fresh homemade peanut butter, AND whips cream in under 10 seconds flat. In Vitamix-less kitchens, you’d need 3 different appliances to accomplish the same thing. And I don’t know about you but I really (truly) don’t want to wash 3 different appliances.

How’s that for a prize worth winning? Don’t wait another second, click through for your chance to win!

Giveaway is now closed. Thanks for entering!

Congratulations to Kelly, comment #945, the randomly selected winner of this giveaway! Hooray!

The fine print: Winner will receive a Vitamix 5200 blender in black, MSRP $449.00. No purchase necessary. Giveaway open to residents of the US and Canada only. Void where prohibited. Winner will have 48 hours to respond otherwise an alternate winner will be chosen. Bonus entry requirements will be verified if selected as the winner, otherwise an alternate winner will be chosen. Giveaway sponsored by Vitamix®. As always, all opinions written are purely my own.

    Oh the possibilities are endless, but I would start by making homemade PB (and that delicious pie you featured yesterday)! And no matter how boring, I would make so many delicious smoothies – especially ones my blender may not make the most smooth like a beet, celery, lemon detox smoothie that is my favorite :)

    Posted On February 7, 2014 at 6:48 am

    Oh, the possibilities!

    Since my last blender broke, I haven’t been able to make anything
    like smoothies or pureed soups other than with my hand mixer, which 
    always leaves small chunks. I have been dreaming of this Vitamix and would use it
    extensively! Alas, I could never afford it myself. I would love to try my hand at
    Haitian Pumpkin New Years soup. Also, I would like to try making my breakfast to go (greek yogurt, berries and chia seeds,) which would make my mornings much more efficient! I would try my hand at all kinds of things!

    Thank you and keep up the great work!
