‘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!

Hi! I would like to make an instant veggie broth mix. I have an organic mini veggie garden and I can grind them. Then, Ill let it all dry for about 10-14 hours at 175°F in the oven, leaving the oven door a bit ajar open. Mix in the blender with sea salt or sometimes I use salt substitute, then I store them in mason jars. The shelf life of 6-8 months and can be mixed with water for instant broth. Great for storage, emergency, camping and any future preparedness.
oops…that was Woo Hoo and Hooray!
I would love to have a Vitamix, for so many things , but primarily to grind whole grains tomake healthy flour for my home made bread and cheese sticks (my son’s favorite!)
