Christmas Gift Guide: A Vita-Mix (and win one, too!)

by Crystal on December 16, 2010

This Christmas Gift Guide is underwritten by Pier 1. Pier 1 is your one stop for unique, imported decor, gifts, furniture, glassware and more this holiday season.

I’m ending the Christmas Gift Guide with one of my very favorite kitchen tools — a Vita-Mix. My dad bought me one for Christmas a few years ago and we’ve used ours over and over again. The Vita-Mix is such a heavy-duty, all-purpose tool which can save you time and effort — and eventually, it can also more than pay for itself if you use it as often as we do!

From Amazon:

Ordinary blenders can’t begin to approach the speed nor output of this extraordinary commercial quality blender. This multi-tasking, heavy-duty electric blender uses 1380-watt power to chop vegetables, juice fruit, blend shakes, mix ice cream and create delectable sauces, salad dressings and much more with the touch of a button.

Ordinary blenders jam or overheat, but with a two-plus peak horsepower motor, ten different speeds and a laser-cut stainless steel blade, this blender chops, grinds, minces, juices and crushes ice with smooth efficiency. You can even cook soup in it!

You can use it to make homemade baby food. (photo by $5 Dinners)

Or make Green Smoothies (photo by Christaface)

One of our favorite ways to use the Vita-Mix is to make Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothies.

Would you like to win a Vita-Mix? To enter to win, just click on the graphic below and type in your name and email address. I’m buying one Vita-Mix for a reader here this week just because I want to bless you all with this appliance that has been such a great help to me! This giveaway ends on Tuesday, December 21, 2010 and a winner will be chosen and posted after the giveaway closes.
