It’s a giveaway!

March 31, 2010

The giveaway is closed

I’m very excited to be hosting my first giveaway! I asked myself what would my readers like to win? I couldn’t decide, so I’m giving you a choice of two things that I find very handy in the kitchen.

What do you think about a hand blender? This comes in handy for puréeing soups – you can puree them right in the pot instead of transferring the soup to your blender or food processor. Summer is almost here, so maybe you’ll want to puree some fresh fruit for a margarita or daiquiri? A hand blender is a great addition to home bars as well as kitchens. But wait! It has a chopper attachment too! I have one similar to this and it comes in really handy for chopping a small amount of nuts or chocolate. I’m sure you’ll find lots of uses for this Oster Hand Blender with Chopper Attachment.

Do you have a kitchen scale? I love mine! I’m so happy when a recipe provides measurements in weight. It’s more precise and it’s easier: you can put a bowl on the scale, zero out the weight, and start adding ingredients. I also use my scale to weigh dry pasta before cooking so we get just the amount we need for dinner. This Cusinart Elite Digital Scale will come in handy for all kinds of things.

Thank you to CSN Stores for sponsoring this giveaway! I especially appreciate that they gave me the opportunity to give you a choice of two items.

  • This is open to US and Canadian residents only.


  1. I have been following your blog through iFeedly for a little while now. Congrats on your first giveaway!

    If chosen I would love to win the Oster Hand Blender with Chopper Attachment. What a nice addition to my kitchen gadget collection, and just in time for summertime smoothies.

  2. I’d love to win the scale! I currently have one of those plastic $1.99 specials that only goes up to about a pound and anything larger than your fist falls off of anyway.

  3. Fun giveaway! I just got a scale for Christmas and it’s made baking so much easier. So, I’ll have to go with the hand blender, I’ve been wanting one of those forever 🙂

  4. Id love the scale because we are going to be starting a special diet for our son and will need a scale to measure every meal. Awesome giveaway!

  5. I’ve been wanting a kitchen scale forever! 🙂

  6. What a wonderful giveaway!!! that’s awesome!

    I’d love the scale-I don’t have one and it would help me so much with bread making!

  7. Wow, both items are on my wish list. But I have really been wanting the cute blender. I hear they are wonderful.

  8. I would love the blender, though the scale is nice too. No, the blender. 🙂 mgdsue@hotmail.com Great giveaway. Thanks!

  9. I would love to win the scale. I already have a hand blender and love it. I’ve been wishing for a food scale for awhile. Great giveaway.

  10. The scale is great- love using those in the kitchen

  11. I would choose the scale. I’ve never owned a digital kitchen scale before.

  12. Decisions, decisions. What great choices!
    I would say the scale.

  13. Definitely the blender/chopper for me! 🙂

  14. I’ve really been wanting one of those hand blenders lately and already have and use constantly a kitchen scale.

  15. Wow! These are both fantastic gifts!

    I am just commenting since I have a scale and a hand blender already.

  16. That blender with chopper attachment looks so handy! No need to drag out the giant food processor!

  17. either would be fine, but I think the blender would be my first choice.

  18. I would like the blender

  19. I LOVE that you’re doing this and just wanted to comment (I have both and don’t need them) but for anyone who doesn’t: the scale is SO handy to have (for precise measurements). You’ll realize just how “off” you can be without using one! And I use my hand blender for pureeing veggie soups. Great products – both of them. Good luck to the lucky winners!

  20. Great giveaway, Jill! I actually acquired both of those items fairly recently and they have both made my kitchen life better, so no need to enter me in the giveaway. I love when I see recipes that use weight measures and I get to use my scale.

  21. I would love the scale because I bought a plastic one from Target a few yrs back and let’s just say it is cracked now after so much use.

  22. What a generous giveaway! I would love a chance to win the scale, please.

  23. I would love to have the Cusinart Elite Digital Scale

  24. Have a great scale, so it’s the hand blender for me!

  25. I know the giveaway is closed, but I just wanted to say that you pick really great things to give away…I could not live without either of those things in my kitchen! They are definitely things to have.
