Vita-Mix Blender Giveaway

First the good news:

We're giving away TWO Vita Mix Super 5200 High Performance blenders this week!

And these aren't the cheapo kind of blenders you get at the drugstore that get all panicky at the first sight of a big chunk of ice.

No, these are fancy-pants, high-end, state of the art, do-everything-but-change-the oil-in-your-car kind of machines. The kind real chefs use. ConsumerSearch, which compiles product reviews from folks like Consumer Reports and Cook's illustrated, rated the Vita-Mix 5200 the Best Multi-Function blender out there.

This thing can cook soup and make ice cream, grind grains into flour, knead dough, make a dress out of a feedbag and make a man out of... oh wait. You may need Peggy Lee for those last two. But the blender can do at least 52 things besides tackling simplest smoothie recipe ever. (For more info check it out here).

The (Possibly) Bad News:

We're afraid that due to shipping issues, the nifty 5200's can only be sent to U.S. and Canadian addresses. But Canadians, you're in this time!

And, due to my tendency to be disorganized about scheduling things, I'm going to stop even pretending that Fridays are giveaway days. It just got a little boring to have so many posts start off with: the reason we don't have a giveaway this week is...

So enough of that! From now on Fridays are not giveaway days, they could be anything! And giveaways can happen any old day. So, it's bad news if you like predictability, but good news if you were tired of whiny excuses.

And so how can you enter to win one of these kick-ass food pulverizing gizmos for your very own kitchen?

Two Ways to Win a Vita-Mix Blender!

Enter with a comment saying you'd like to win this thing, and your comment will be included in a Random Number Drawing for one of the Vita-Mixes. (First comment only, in case you stop by more than once).

However, if you choose to write a poem or haiku about blenders, cooking, cooking disasters, margarita's, or anything remotely related to the giveaway item, you will, in addition to being entered in the Random Drawing for the first Vita-Mix, be among the much smaller pool of folks eligible to win the second Vita-Mix as well.

I will pick my Three Favorite Poems/Haiku's/Limericks and use the Random Number Generator to choose randomly among the three finalists. (This means, if somehow you don't win, that you can console yourself by knowing that I actually thought yours was the very best, but the RNG picked the wrong entry).


Winner will be chosen as of Midnight, EST Tuesday the 23rd, and announced Wednesday, the 24th. (Holy crap, that's Christmas eve! Where's the time going?!?!) If you win, please email us to claim your prize by... oh heck, it's the holidays... please claim you're prize by January 2nd, even if you're still hungover or whatever. But earlier is better!

I just found out MizFit is doing a charitable comment drive over at her place. Every comment you make will result in a donation of ten cents to a domestic violence shelter! (What does this have to do with blenders? Nothing! But I thought it was cool and hope you can go over and check it out.)

Another Important Update:

So sorry, but the contest is over and the winners have claimed their blenders. Maybe next giveaway you'll be luckier! However, if you want to do some shopping, here's a similar one...


  1. I'd love to win one of those blenders! Thanks!! heading off to work on my poetry for my 2nd entry.

  2. Holy-moley, dare I hope that the random number generator will pick me? That's one heckuva prize!

  3. Oooh, I want one. But I live in the UK. :( But I shall give it to my Mom should the random number generator pick me!

  4. Im not gonna pretend you dont need to put me in the drawing.

    you do :)

    I MAY pretend Ill sell it on ebay and give the money to charity---but I wont :) I SOOO NEED A NEW BLENDER and that one fancy.


  5. Ummm yeah as if I'm not going to comment and get in on this nifty giveway. I'm in....please please please pick me. Okay now I sound like someones bratty kid. That thing rocks of course I want one.

  6. Pick me!!! My (grown) kids keep "borrowing" my appliances (and they live 3 hours away! Mama needs a new blender!

  7. I saw one of these at the state fair this year, I wanted to get one but could not afford to put any more on the credit card. I would love to have one!

  8. WOOHOO! Back in the states baby, which means i'm eligible...right? I'm in... I'm in...

  9. There once was a girl from Saint John
    Who knew how to get her Margarita on...

    No, I just can't make that work. Besides, I usually make my margs on the rocks these days because my teeth are so sensitive, the slushy ones are scary to drink. Though maybe if I actually had a decent blender that didn't leave chunks of ice...

    Yes please! I want to win the super-fantastic blender!

  10. There once was a blender named Vita-Mix,

    From swirling liquid he got his kicks,

    He chopped, he pureed, he mashed, and frappe'd,

    All just to get me my smoothie fix!

  11. Want! I have several peeps in the states who will hold it (and probably use it, greedy so-and-so's) for me.

  12. Well, I'm not much of a poet, so I'll take my chances this way :D

  13. Wow - you are always two steps ahead of me:) I'm giving away a Vitamix blender on my site next week. So don't enter me in the contest but I did want to say that your post will be really hard to follow- you are one funny lady!

  14. "Vita-Mix" "High Performance"
    Such lofty phrases

    Aww to heck with the poem...

  15. Made some fudge; got soup.
    Recipe said five ounce can milk,
    Not fourteen ounce. Damn.

  16. Mix smoothies and grains
    The fix for hunger and health
    Vita-mix is king

  17. Oooh, pick me, pick me!!! How fun to think that I have a chance! I too am off to write some profound blender poetry... (If only I had a Vita Mix, I could take an actual poem, put aforementioned poem into the blender, pour shredded pieces of paper onto kitchen counter, then just write down what appears. Wait -- poetry would become soup in a Vita Mix, right? Darn!)

  18. A haiku about Vita-Mix

    Purring like a kitten,
    Or roaring like a lion in heat,
    Wish I had a Vita-Mix!

    (Yeah, I was a computer science major -- can you tell?)

  19. My pops, an artist, is a wild free hippy
    Who let little-me do unusual stuff
    like dippin' grass in a jar of Skippy
    And run around, age three, in the buff

    Among others, there were the blender days
    When my pops encouraged me to cook
    I found the machine behind brown clays
    And soon, its little glass shook

    As I added things based on shade
    Red tomatoes, red strawberries, red hot sauce
    Whites, greens, these smoothies I made
    Shimmering like an artist's gloss.

    Pretty as a picture, but tasting like poo
    I soon gave up my blender dreams
    But now I'm older with lots more schoo'
    And the VitaMix, oh how it gleams!

    So give me the chance to do pops proud
    And make somethin even non-hippys can love
    A smoothie for one, or drinks for a crowd
    Would help me be a better cook, kind of!

  20. Lite margarita
    Splenda, lime, and self-pity
    Martyr's bitter cup!

  21. I MUST win this! I need it. No, really!!

  22. Once there was a blender so inferior
    Makes me wish I could kick it in the derriere

    You see on us it broke down
    And I became smoothieless clown
    With the saddest saddest frown

    Then one day in front of my eyes did I see
    A Vitamix blender contest hosted by the wonderful Cranky

    If won it will solve all my snack time woes
    And pick me up from this all time low

    Smoothies, Soups, Pina Coladas Galore
    Oh please pick me and I'll be happy evermore!

  23. Blender, Blender you I need.
    Blender, Blender please pick me.

  24. Hi Crabby,

    Wonderful prize, I'd like to be entered.

    Also, Bag Lady already sent me to MizFit, but now you are sending me, so I will go and post again and she'll have to spring for a second dime! Everyone--follow me!


  25. A blender I need
    to mix delicious sweet treats
    for my mouth, yes please

  26. I'd love to win a vita-mix! Thanks!

  27. I bought my blender when a young, single gal in her 20s (3 decades ago). Several years later, spouser blew out the motor trying to mix cookie dough in it.

    I replaced said base with a lonely unit from GoodWill.

    Several years later I ruined the plastic top during a hand-made paper frenzy.

    I replaced the top with piece from the hardware store.

    A few years later the glass container broke.

    I found another that worked at Good Will.

    So who knows how old my blender is, or how much longer this sucker is going to last. Next time something goes, damn it I'm getting a whole new blender.

    I'd love it to be this one.

  28. I overheard someone the other day when I was at physio talking about her super-duper do anything blender, but didn't hear what kind it was. Methinks it might have been one of these.

    Would love to be included in the draw. How very generous of this company to include Canadians this time around!!

  29. Count me in...I could really use the hell out of a juicer!

  30. Ooh exciting! Now I'm happy to be Canadian hehe. I like haikus so here's TWO just for kicks.

    On kitchen mishaps:
    The cookies are burned
    I need to be supervised

    And another one on blenders:
    The joy of pancakes
    Smushed in a pretty blender
    Would start my day right.

  31. Here is my best answer.
    I read those cure cancer.

  32. wow.....I am having blender envy just looking at that. considering ours is on it's last legs and is struggling to make smoothies I would LOVE to win that.

    now I have to think of a poem too

  33. here's my poem (and totaly stolen from William Blake - but it is a Friday and my brain is toast)

    what eager cooking with hand and eye
    could master thy fearful energy?

  34. i've wanted a vitamix since i got my first issue of vegetarian times when i was 16 and saw an ad in there!!

    Smoothies are tasty
    With a blender I could make

  58. delicious smoothies
    I need a better blender

    My Margarita
    Sweet salty seductive drink
    I heart Vita-Mix

  94. I call this masterpiece:

    "I Have Too Much Time on My Hands"


    We're not a blended nation,
    And never shall we be.
    At best, we're individuals
    Who work towards unity.

    Just look at Cranky Fitness:
    There's happy Merry Sunshine--
    On the other hand, there's Cranky-
    And all SHE does is WHINE.

    But her whining is SO CHARMING :-)
    I'll cherish and defend her.
    Why sucking up so much, you ask?


  95. Oops, an editing mistake: I called "Crabby", "Cranky". Corrected version is below. Note the new title:

    "Now Everyone Knows I Wasn't Joking About Having Too Much Time on My Hands"

    We're not a blended nation,
    And never shall we be.
    At best, we're individuals
    Who work towards unity.

    Just look at Cranky Fitness:
    There's happy Merry Sunshine--
    On the other hand, there's Crabby-
    And all SHE does is WHINE.

    But her whining is SO CHARMING :-)
    I'll cherish and defend her.
    Why sucking up so much, you ask?


  96. This is the best blender EVER EVER!

    I Never Thought That I Would See
    A Poem About Blender-osity

    Oh Vita-Mix, You Do it All!
    I want you at my beck and call!

    Vita-Mix can heat soup that will steam,
    Not only that, it makes vita-ice-cream!

    With a Vita-Mix, I could conquer the world,
    And have the trim figure of a shapely young girl.

    If I have a problem, Vita-Mix will help!
    We'll dupe my two children to eat Vita-Mixed kelp

    Poems are written by fools like me,
    But Vita-Mix and I were truly meant to be!

  119. Hey Cranky, put me on both your lists as 'sender'
    Man... do I ever want and need that blender
    I fancy home-made bread but for that need to gizmo grain
    'Coz that stuff they masquerade as bread isn't real, it's a pain
    Methinks this blender will be my answer - my situation-mender!

  120. Oh competition
    So many fit commentors
    But, really, I want it!!!

  121. Mixes fast, mixes well.
    Will I win it? None can tell.
    If I do, I will not sell.
    Those who lost can go to ...

    (read as a Burma-Shave ad)

  122. A poet I am Not
    yet the Vitamix Blender I do Want,
    Blueberries and Strawberries
    Bananas and Radishes,
    to blend them and eat them is my goal
    so that I can finally look hot!
    thanks for this opportunity, pretty cool!

  123. The shelf down below
    where I fear to go
    because of the musty odors
    is filled with burnt out motors

    The shelf down below
    where I fear to go
    is filled with bottomless tops
    sometimes I have the drops

    and then the cheapo blender gets
    stashed down below
    while another one takes it's place.

    If I had a fine machine
    I'd smoothie myself into lean
    I'd hold that blender strong
    It would last real long.

  124. Once a blender met a blender in the blender beans,
    then the blender asked the blender if the blender could tell the blender, what the blender means!
    Yes, please put me in the blender pot for a chance to win. Thanks.

  125. Once a blender met a blender in the blender beans,
    then the blender asked the blender if the blender could tell the blender, what the blender means!

  126. My blender is 21 years old... it's about time to bury it! Please let me win!

  127. This would be a wonderful gift for muslef. All I have now is the magic bullet and it can not do what this can...please pick me ;)

  128. i'd love to win the vita-mix. seriously, who wouldn't???

  129. Wow! My (insert non-Vita-Mix brand here) blender just broke last night as I made a smoothie. I had ruled out the awesome (but unaffordable) Vita-Mix and was debating which brand to try out for the next few weeks until its likely trip to my blender graveyard. Guess I'll try my odds here before I finalize my decision.

  130. Dreams of silky smooth hummus, ice creams and nut butters.

    Only the Vita-Mix can electrify my taste buds in a minute or under.

    The thought of energizing green drinks that alkalize

    Only leads me to contemplate the many recipes I can prepare that mezmerize!

    I would absolutely love an opportunity to win a Vita-Mix. It is a vegetarians dream.

  131. Vita-Mix 5200 Haiku

    A raw food affair
    Healthy hummus for pennies
    Green smoothies galore

  132. i'll blend my own drinks
    so Jamba Juice can suck it
    that's six bucks i'll save!

    yay i did it!!!

  133. Ode to a Lost Vita-Mix

    One day, a couple of years ago,
    My mother decided lots of things had to go.
    A garage sale she had because of the urge
    To get rid of it all - to rid, to purge!
    One of the things,
    Among all the others
    Was a Vita-Mix,
    From my grandmother.

    This was pre-smoothie,
    Before I knew
    The mashed fruit goodness,
    Delicious morning stew.

    So it escaped my clutches,
    That vintage Vita-Mix, tush!
    Instead I've a blender
    With "Powerful Ice Crush."

    But a true Vita-Mix,it must be said,
    I crave!
    So I submit this -
    And I promised it would be bad. :)

  134. Splendid mixer more
    than one could ever hope for
    Vitamix the one

  135. Ooh ooh! Random Number Generator pick me! pick me! :)

    If the blender is as good as i think it is, i can use it to make baby food for the wee one when we get to that!

    And then a thick chocolate milkshake for me :)

  136. My poem-writing skills aren't working out so well - guess I'll have to hope the random number generator picks me!

  137. I used to hate anything involving physical exertion,

    But now I love my 9 mile running excursions!

    I used to hate raw veggies or anything colored green,

    But now I love veggies more than anyone my family has ever seen!

    I used to hate people who naturally loved to eat healthy,

    But now I love spending hours in Whole Foods as if I were wealthy!

    I used to hate smoothies because they would always have big ice chunks,

    But now (with a Vita-Mix) I love to be a smoothie punk!

  138. Ooooh! I would love to have a new blender!

  139. bananas, berries
    honey, milk, a noisy crush,
    smoothie magic. yum.

  140. Crushing ice
    Rum and coconut are effortless partners
    Pina coladas yum

  141. If ever there were a cause worthy of a haiku...

    Slayer of blenders
    Three have fallen before me
    Stop me, Vita Mix

  142. Holy protein shakes! I NEED one!

    There once was a Mom from SoCal
    Who no longer makes shakes for her pals
    Her kids made mud pies
    Full of dirt, worms, and ice
    Now this Mom is -

    Ugh! I can't go on w/out breaking down! Tragedy!!

  143. I need a brand new blender
    It will help to make me slender
    I could make some shakes to slim my bum
    But chances are I'll blend some rum
    If only I had a way to crush my ice
    Thanks Cranky Fitness for being so nice

    There's my lame poem. :) I am currently without a blender, so winning this would make my day!

  144. blue margarita
    like absent sun in winter
    blender to rescue

  145. After years breaking all brands of blender,

    Wiping tears each event would engender,

    A top notch Vita-Mix,

    Is my ultimate fix,

    Since it outlasts the nearest contender!

    You can remove my earlier comment from the drawing since I am adding my limerick here. Thanks!

  146. Please, please, please enter my name to win! Thanks!!

  147. My wife has been all over me to get a Vita-Mix 5200 for Christmas. So this would be the best Santa surprise of all!!!

  148. I would love to win one of the blenders. Thanks!

  149. Vita mix Oh Vita mix
    I long to see you in my kitchen
    You will whirl & twirl the days away
    & together we will make sweet green smoothies!

  150. If I'm not mistaken, this is the blender used in the engaging "Will It Blend" series on YouTube. It's really quite amusing, especially when they blend the iPhone! Count me in... I think I'd like to blend my Blackberry. Cheers!!

  151. Oh! I was mistaken! The "Will it Blend" series uses a rival inferior brand blender! Vita-Mix is far superior and most certainly should have it's own show. Maybe it does?

  152. Wow...and thank you for offering this giveaway.
