'Tis giveaway season! It's a strange and wonderful situation to be in when I'm having trouble finding a way to schedule in multiple giveaways before I leave on Christmas holidays next week. I hope you don't mind my RSS feed bearing a concentration of gifts instead of recipes. Today I have a Christmas Vitamix Giveaway for you!
This is my new baby, the Vitamix S30. He lives on my counter beside his big brother, the Pro 750, and together we're a happy little family. When Baby Vitamix arrived a few months ago, I wasn't sure how much I would use it, sitting in the shadow of his muscly big brother. Turns out I use it almost every day.
He's got the same high-power motor I love in the rest of the Vitamix family, but with a few key differences - it takes up much less counter space (6 inches, to be precise), it has two interchangeable canisters (one of which is an insulated to-go cup that will keep cold beverages cold and hot beverages hot - great for on-the-go smoothie lovers), it's dishwasher safe (!) and it's perfect for small tasks. I adore my Vitamix 750, but it's just not the ideal machine for doing very small amounts (the blades won't reach the food once it's hits the walls of the canister if there isn't enough volume to keep it circulating).
I use the S30 for peanut's afternoon greensmoothie, because I only do a small amount for his tiny toddler tummy. It's also the tool I reach for when I want to finely chop just a handful of nuts or any other ingredient. But don't get me wrong, it's not just for mini-tasks - the larger container is 40 ounces, which is plenty substantial - that's three filling smoothies. I'm super excited that I have one to give to you, too!
Enter via Rafflecopter below. There are several ways to enter – just do the first one, or do them all for multiple entries. Most you can do once each day. Contest ends December 12, 2014 at 11:59 PM PST. The winner will be contacted shortly after by email and must respond within 24 hours or another winner will be drawn. Required action for the winning entry must be verifiable, so please make sure to follow the instructions. Contest open to Canadian and US residents. Good luck!
Don't forget that I've collaborated with Bon Appetit on an Instagram giveaway of the Vitamix Professional Series 750, too! Details here - that one is running until Christmas Eve!
