Giveaway – Cuisinart Smart-Stick Hand Blender

During the fall I find I make soup at least 2 times a week, sometimes more.  There’s something about a hot bowl of soup that’s so comforting.  One of my favorite tools to use when I need to  purée soup or even smoothies is my Cuisinart Smart-Stick Hand Blender.  

Before I had the Cuisinart Hand Blender, when puréeing soups I would then have to use a ladle to transfer the chunky soup (often hot) into a stand blender.  I disliked this for 2 reasons:

  1. I had to clean another container – UGH!
  2. I had to be careful that the liquid wouldn’t explode out of the top of the blender since it was hot.  I was always careful though and put a towel over the lid just in case it came bursting out.
Now  puréeing is so simple.  Just put the Cuisinart Smart-Stick directly into the pot (no transferring), and blend away.

Once  puréed , simply remove the blender from the pot, separate the blender attachment, wash and store.  That’s it!  Then I’m ready for my soup.

A favorite is my Butternut Squash soup for recipe view here.

You can also blend ingredients directly in pitchers, bowls, or the clear plastic beaker that’s included with the blender. For something so small it has a  powerful 200-watt motor that operates with an easy one-touch control. It blends drinks, purées soup, mixes pancake and crêpe batters in seconds! Plus you can put both the stainless steel blending shaft and beaker in the dishwasher! What could be easier?

Cuisinart was nice enough to offer me a one of their Smart-Stick Hand Blenders to giveaway this week on my blog.  Participants must live in the United States.  If you’re the winner, Cuisinart will ship it directly to you in one of their new fall colors.  Have you seen all the colors they have?  They’re so much fun, along with all their other appliances – bright and cheerful!  They make you smile while you’re cooking!The giveaway starts today and ends on Monday at Midnight EST/ 11:00 pm. central time.  The winner will be notified by email and have 48 hours to respond otherwise, I’ll have to select another winner at Random.  I’d hate to do that so be sure to sign in with an address you check frequently.

This giveaway will be conducted through Rafflecopter.  Just follow the prompts below and the rest is simple.

Good Luck!
