Blendtec Blender and Jar GiveawayHappy Thursday before Thanksgiving, everyone!  I can not tell you how excited I am to host this giveaway for you today.  On Monday, we put up our Christmas tree and stockings because, as you are reading this, we are on the road and won’t be home again until two days after Thanksgiving.  This way, we can walk into our house and have our Christmas decorations already up and ready to be in full swing for the holidays!

Waking up to our Christmas tree lights for the last three days has really put me in the mood for Christmas shopping!  But, since I have no time or even money (hello, saving up for house down payment!) to do that right now, this giveaway is the next best thing.  Consider this my Christmas present to you.  🙂  My friends at Blendtec are sponsoring one very lucky Pennies reader to win a factory restored Total Blender Classic Wildside plus a brand new Twister Jar to go along with it!  This is over a $500 value, people! Score! 🙂

This blender is seriously the real deal.  It replaces many of your other kitchen appliances and does it all for you.  It can make dips, ice cream, nut butters, smoothies, soups, etc.  And, it all blends so evenly with an operating brain of its own, you don’t even understand how you got that perfect consistency!  I know I would get pretty frustrated with my old blender, having to always stop it, scrape down the sides, shake it and whatever else in order to get it to blend just right.  No longer do I need to do this now that I have a Blendtec!

And, you better believe I’ll be putting this to full time use once this new baby comes along and starts eating baby food.  🙂

Here are a few other recipes you can make in Blendtec blenders:

Pimiento Cheese
Baba Ghanoush
Green Monster Smoothie
Banana Ice Cream

Giveaway rules:

  • To enter the giveaway, please leave a comment attached to this post telling me what you plan to make in your Blendtec blender. (If you are reading this through email, you must visit the blog to leave your comment.)
  • One extra entry if you follow Pennies on a Platter (@penniesonaplatt) on Twitter.  Leave a separate comment telling me you do.
  • One extra entry if you follow Blendtec (@Blendtec) on Twitter.  Leave a separate comment telling me you do.
  • A total of two (2) extra entries allowed.
  • Giveaway open to U.S. residents only.
  • Contest closes Saturday, November 17th at 10:00PM EST.
  • Winner will be announced next week at the top of this post.  Winner will also be notified by email.  If a response is not received within 1 week of being notified, a new winner will be chosen.
  • This giveaway is sponsored by Blendtec. The blender is factory restored, just like the one I was provided, however, the jars are brand new.

Good luck, everyone!!  If you do not see your comment(s) right away, be patient as it is a little more difficult to moderate the comments from my phone, as I’ll be doing while I’m on the roast. 🙂  Although I’m traveling, rest assured I’m coming back tomorrow with a recipe.  🙂

  288. I plan on making hummus! And smoothies!

  289. You already have your decorations up? Ack. I’m hoping to get a headstart, but not until after Thanksgiving. Good luck with the home down payment, too. So, yeah. I’ve been wishing to own a blender like this. I make a lot of homemade cream soups, so would love to have a blender that can handle that job.

  290. I followed Blendtec on Twitter!

  291. I’d definitely start out with a great smoothie, but I can imagine lots of fun things to use it for!

  292. I follow Pennies on a Platter on Twitter.

  293. I would love to make smoothies and try making some of the nut butters. Happy Thanksgiving!!

  294. smoothies, smoothies, smoothies! 🙂

  295. pumpkin oatmeal smoothie!

  296. Cream of broccoli soup!

  297. Smoothies! Delicious blueberry smoothies! I’ll be able to add some raspberries too, since the Blendtec pulvarizes those seeds.

  298. Shakes, smoothies, and soups!

  299. Excited to make green smoothies!

  300. Following you on Twitter!

  301. Following Blendtec on Twitter!

  302. Katrina Ryefield says:

    I would make some green smoothies, because I’ve read that is great for your health! I’d also make soups, and ice creams and so many dips and pestos! I’ve seen amazing recipes the last few months made with a blendtec – it has made this product hit the top of my must have devices lol! 🙂

  303. I would make smoothies with it my girls love when we make them

  304. I follow @penniesonaplatt on twitter love reading your stuff

  305. I follow @Blendtec on twitter 🙂

  306. Jessica Tomberlin says:

    I haven’t been able to make my homemade garlic sauce since my blender quit working, and I’m missing it!

  307. I want a power blender so bad! I write cookbooks for folks with food allergies and a power blender would make testing recipes so much easier. I have a cuisenart blender that doesn’t even like to make mayo.

    I would would make nut butters, coconut butter, mayo and loads more with my new Blendtec Blender.


  308. I would love to win this Bledtec blender to make baby food, smoothies, ice cream, salsa… and the sorts. My husband broke our other one.

  309. Can’t wait to make salsa!

  310. So exciting! I would use a blend tech to make power smoothies for my swimmer…oh the possibilities!

    Great idea coming home to a decorated house!

  311. I would make milk shakes!

  312. A yummy soup!

  313. guacamole for chips and cheese

  314. Guacamole sounds really yummy right now

  315. Homemade applesauce!

  316. I so want to jump on the green drink/smoothie bandwagon!

  317. Smoothies…..fresh fruit smoothies….

  322. I make a protein smoothie every morning, and my current blender is about to give out 🙁

  323. Wow, what an awesome giveaway!!

    Also, I’m slightly jealous that your tree is up. As much as I am a firm believer in “respecting the turkey”, I am also a sucker for Christmas lights! Enjoy your travels and time with family!!

  324. I’m following you on twitter (@amfflores)

  325. Wow, what an awesome giveaway!! I would make smoothies (or probably more realistically milkshakes, ha!)

    Also, I’m slightly jealous that your tree is up. As much as I am a firm believer in “respecting the turkey”, I am also a sucker for Christmas lights! Enjoy your travels and time with family!!

  326. This would be so great! There are so many things I’ve been planning to make, but couldn’t because I don’t have a blender. I guess the first thing I’d do would start making dips-which I make with a handblender every week-with the blender. No more splatters all over the kitchen lol

  327. We love to make green smoothies and banana ice cream is always a hit with a toddler!

  328. Hummus is by far my favorite blender project!

  329. Soups, milk shakes, smoothies….the list is endless!

  330. Margaritas!

  331. I follow POP on twitter!

  332. I’d make hummus, peanut butter and lots of smoothies!

  333. I’d start with smoothies, and move onto some nut butters

  335. I follow Blendtec on twitter!

  336. I follow Blendtec on twitter

  337. I follow you on twitter

  338. I will make everything possible with this blender! Ice cream, smoothies, sauces, dips… Everything our dairy- and gluten-free household needs to make!

  339. I would love to make home made baby food. I just seems healthier and cheaper than store bought.

  340. Since my 5 week old baby girl is intolerant of milk protein (and I nurse), I am having to go dairy free. Since I seem to put milk, cheese, etc in just about EVERYTHING I cook I am having to learn to use other things (tofu to make things “creamy”, etc). (We just found out this week so I have been researching and experimenting like crazy!) This blender would be AWESOME for helping the transition to being dairy free! 🙂

  341. I would make smoothies with it for sure, but also I’m interested in trying other recipes with it!

  342. I follow Blendtec on Twitter!

  343. I would make green smoothies, definitely.

  344. I follow Pennies of a Platter on twitter (housewifewannab)

  345. I follow Blendtec on twitter.

  346. Now following both penniesonaplatt and blendtec! 🙂

  347. What a timely giveaway!
    I think it would be a shorter list what wouldn’t I do with this! I cook from scratch and can see making my own nut butters, nut meals, grinding flours, making mayo, mustard and custom smoothies as a bonus!

  348. Cynthia McConniel says:

    What wouldnt I make with Blendtec? I do daycare in my home. This would be great for making homemade babyfood for my babies, nut butters for my children with peanut allergies,amoothies for everyone else. It would be Chirstmas come early that if for sure.

  349. I would make some awesome smoothies!

  357. If I won the Blendtec blender, I would make a tropical smoothie with frozen strawberries, mango, fresh lilikoi juice, yogurt, and ice cubes. Sweetened with honey.

  370. I’m going to make – what else? – smoooooooooooothies!

  371. I have been wanting a food processor for a really long time. I use a blender every day for protein shakes so to have something that would do both would be such a space saver! In addition to my protein shakes I would make hummus regularly. Mmmmm. 🙂

  373. Smoothies!

  429. Catherine Robinson says:

    We would make lots of smoothies!!!

  430. Kale pineapple coconut smoothies with a whey base! -k

  431. Wow…would love this. So many ideas…smoothies, milkshakes, fraps and more including soups!

  432. Dulce de Leche ice cream…umm!

  433. The banana ice cream you suggested sounds like it would make a great first dish to make!

  434. Heather Smith says:

    I have 2 young daughters who would love for me to make them smoothies of all different flavors. I’ll admit that I’m not the best cook and limited to what I can make. But I’m trying to learn and expand my abilities. The blender would definitely help pave the way. 🙂

  435. Were I lucky enough to win this, you can bet I’d be making some spiked chai milkshakes. Yum!

  526. We have been wanting to get a Blendtec for years, most specifically to make houmus, which often binds up lesser quality blenders. We also would like to make fresh salsa from our backyard garden yield in the Blendtec. It’s an expensive appliance, so the give-away would be a blessing.

  527. Smoothies for sure…and Pina Coladas…and margarita’s. And salad dressing too!

  528. and I already follow you on Twitter

  548. I am a twitter follower of @Blendtec !!!

  549. Wow! What an awesome giveaway. I have seen nothing but great reviews of the Blendtec and would love to have my own.

    In our home it would be used to make fresh fruit smoothies I’m sure. I love the Strawberry Banana Smoothies at McDonalds but don’t like getting those too often because they take something that should be somewhat healthy and add all sorts of stuff which boosts calories and fat.

    And it would be used as well to make homemade baby foods for our Granddaughter who is currently living with us temporarily along with her parents. That would be such a money saver for them.

  550. Lots of blended stuff? 😉 Blender Icecream and sorbets ?

  551. Smoothies for the kids first

  552. I would make smoothies and hummus!

  553. I follow you on Twitter.

    If I have entered the contest in time, the Blendtec giveaway, I plan to make a smoothy with fresh orange juice and a frozen banana and peaches and a spoonful of flax. I tried one at jamba juice and was so good I wished I could make them at home for my family, it would be lots more economical to make it at home and I could use other berries instead of peaches, I could use frozen fruit and have a Blentec party making fruit smoothies, yay!

  562. 100% s
    Fruit and veggie smoothies. Let the blending begin!

  563. I follow @blendtec!

  564. The very first thing I’d make is a raw carrot ginger soup. I saw a demonstrator at Whole Foods make it once and gave us all little samples. It was delis! I tried to make it at home with my regular blender, but it was gritty, gritty, gritty!
