Blendtec Designer Series Blender Giveaway!


Live, Laugh, & Love with Lilly welcomes you to the


Most of you have probably known me as an advocate
for VitaMix, so why on earth would I be reviewing the Blendtec now?
Let me share a story with you about how this
BLENDTEC giveaway came about. When I was on vacation in New York
City last November 2012, my girlfirend and I were surfing TV channels and happened
upon one that was talking about Vitamix and
. It explained how Vitamix had copied another company's
(Blendtec) mixing jar. That case was taken to court and the
court agreed with Blendtec. Vitamix lost, and Blendtec
from K-Tec, Inc. was awarded a multimillion dollar judgment. I
almost had to pull my jaw up from the floor! My friend and I looked at each other,
and I asked her, "how can I promote a company that stole another company's design"?
If you want the details, you can
read more about this federal court ruling here.

Blendtec is offering their Blendtec Designer
Series blender with a
Wildside Jar and a Twister Jar as a Prize for this Red Hot Blendtec Giveaway! The winner can choose
from a base that is Red, Black, White or Champagne and get a Wildside Jar
and Twister Jar to use with the base unit. This Prize is valued over
$500! Thank you Blendtec!

You have got to watch this funny video from
Blendtec: "Does It Blend?"


The Blendtec Designer came in one package with the Wildside Jar, Spatula, and 2
Cookbooks. The Twister Jar came separately. Both were packaged extremely well and
nothing was dented or damaged.

I was really excited about the cookbook that
came with the Blendtec. It is spiral bound and hard sided and someone that is
really into eating healthy has put down some fabulous recipes! The recipes are
labeled as to whether they are Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Vegan, RAW and low sodium
recipes as well as regular recipes that require wheat, meat and dairy. There are
even recipes for exfoliating and skin care, plus recipes for your pet as well! The
recipes also have nutritional and calorie counts. In addition there are recipes
for making your own flour. You do NOT need a separate container to make flour like
you do for the Vitamix. That is a huge plus in my book. And there are recipes
for making your own nut milks. Speaking of nut milks...I decided to see how
Blendtec compared with the Vitamix in making Almond Milk since I use alot of
home-made almond milk.

I was thrilled because the lid of the Blendtec is much easier to use than the lid
on the VitaMix. Previously, I had to ask my husband to take the lid off the
VitaMix because my arthritic hands could not unlock it. I was shocked at how
powerful the Blendtec machine is in comparison. I do not soak the Almonds when I
make Almond milk. I use them straight out of the bag. The Blendtec has
pre-programmed cycles, so I pressed the cycle for the milk. This machine is fast
and powerful! When the cycle ended and I poured the ingredients into the strainer
I noticed the feel of the almond pulp was much finer than the other machine and the
milk seemed to have more almond flavor.

My next comparison was to blend a quick
gluten-free bread. I couldn't believe how quickly this machine whizzed this mix
together. I pulsed the Blendtec a couple times, scraped down the sides once and
hit pulse again and it was done! The bread turned out fabulously and my husband
loved the texture and flavor. I have to mention, again, how easy the lid is to
handle on these Blendtec containers. I also like the wider container size that
has the same volume as the taller Vitamix container. The Blendtec WildSide
container is easier for me to handle. The Blendtec also fits on the machine and
under my cabinets where the other machine does not.

The Twister container is used for tackling
thicker dough and comes with a small recipe booklet. There are recipes items that
require high speeds or have heavy doughs such as Dairy-Free Ice Creams, pasta
dough, pizza dough, nut butters and many other recipes. To test the Twitster
Container I made the recipe for Whole Wheat Spinach Pasta but substituted
gluten-free flour and I didn't have spinach, so I substituted cilantro. It was a
very thick dough but I used the special spatula, Spectacula, as it is called, which
made it very easy to remove the ingredients and very easy to clean the container.
This dough was very easy to make with the Blendtec, and the noodles held up very
well despite using gluten-free flour!

My final thoughts on the Blendtec are that it is a more powerful machine than the
Vitamix and you do not need a plunger to use with the Blendtec. I like the fact
that I do not have to open the top of the lid to push down food when you use a
Blendtec. It is very easy to use and I like the fact that Blendtec provides a
separate container, the Twister Jar, to handle thicker projects. I also love the
Blendtec lids. I can easily use them and remove them myself without any help.
This fact makes it much easier for me to cook when I am at home alone. I also
love the service that Blendtec has provided me in the short time I have known them.
I am proud to be affiliated with Blendtec and I highly recommend them.
