Contest is now over.  Congratulations to Sharon, entry #1963 who has won the giveaway.  Thanks for participating.

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.

    I’ve been dying for one of these blenders! I love a really healthy smoothie. I’ve never had a blender powerful enough that would allow me to throw in some kale or other greens, but I hope to one day.
