I’ve got a great giveaway for you this weekend!  One Picky Palate reader will win Blendtec’s new Designer Series Total Blender with Wildside Jar plus Twister Jar retails over $600 🙂

Blendtec is pleased to introduce the all-new Total Blender Designer Series™. It has been engineered to bring a whole new level of beauty and functionality to the high-end blender category, without compromising the famous power and efficiency of our Total Blender Classic Series™.

The Designer Series will complement your kitchen. The sleek shape, vibrant interface and tasteful hues will beautify your home.

The touch area has illuminated, easy to read, universal icons that enable effortless selection of our signature blend cycles. These cycles are optimized to deliver great blends with a single touch.

The revolutionary new slider interface gives you absolute control over your blender’s speed. Precise touch sensors give you every bit of control you deserve. Touch anywhere on the slider to jump right to any speed, and slide your finger up and down to fine tune your blend.

Blendtec’s expert engineering team invented a revolutionary new air-flow design that keeps the blender cooler. A cooler motor means longer life.

    Actually, I have never owned a blender, so I can’t tell you what my favorite recipe IS — however, my family and I have been craving fruit smoothies lately — so I think that’s the first thing that I’d try!! Thanks for the chance to win.

    I love making smoothies with a blender. Mine died a horrid death, not too long ago, and I desperately need another.

    I don’t know why my original comment didn’t post…because there was a link in it, maybe? Anyway, we love berry smoothies here.

    My favorite blender recipe is a classic fruit smoothie! I make one every morning in my old, should-buy-a-new-one, er, I mean, “trusty” blender. Strawberries, one banana, blueberries, greek yogurt, some ice cube and the highest setting on my machine! Tastes like morning!!

    My daughter loves to make a smoothie every morning and has been using our old blender so much that isn’t working so great! We could really use a new more powerful one!!!
