I’m giving away a Vitamix S30 High Performance Blender! Now let me share the full disclosure—and admittedly you might think this giveaway is as hokey and tacky as it gets, but in the words of Popeye, “I yam what I yam.” You see I won this beautiful Vitamix S30 High Performance Blender from Chocolate-Covered Katie a few months back. And I was thrilled. But ever since I received it, I’ve had doubts if I really needed it. So I didn’t open the box right away, and even after I did, I didn’t pull out all the pieces and “fire it up”, so to speak.
You see I already own a “full-size” classic Vitamix (which dear gluten-free blogging friends gave me) and I’ve loved it. When my gluten-free girlfriends came for my annual gfe retreat a few weeks ago, we finally broke out the S30 Personal Vitamix and gave it its inaugural run. But it only got used once—to make a green smoothie. I used it again today to make this Morning Mocha Monkey Smoothie. Yum. But I digress. A bit. It was while sipping the smoothie and pondering life that the idea for this Saturday Surprise! giveaway hit me.
I’ve been on a new mission in life of late, to reduce the things in my life—both physical and mental distractions. I’ve been doing this off and on for a while, but the mission has taken on a new life the last 2 months. I started following the blog, Becoming Minimalist. The author’s story spoke to me. This post made things even clearer; I don’t want to continue to be a “Stuff Manager.” A while back on Apartment Therapy, I read that the best tip for decluttering your closets was asking yourself the question, “Would I buy this today if I were shopping?” (The original question came from Lifehacker.) The shortened “Would I buy this today?” gets right to the point. With non-material things, it’s more of a “Would I sign up for this today?” type of thing. If you need to declutter in all phases of your life, not just your closets, not much passes that test, folks.
I truly want to make my life as simple as possible so I can live my life and not worry about stuff so much, and especially not have more than I really need. I even gave away my KitchenAid Stand Mixer recently. In all the years, I’d owned it, I’d used that about twice, too. (Yep, I know, I’m not a typical foodie or food blogger. I’m pretty basic when it comes to kitchen tools. A good wooden spoon is my favorite.) So I have decided to face the fact that I really don’t need the Vitamix S30 High Performance Blender. As beautiful and wonderful as it is. Sigh. As I said, I already have the “full-size” Vitamix, a 5200 Super Healthy Lifestyle model. So if I’m being honest with myself and following my new minimalist path, I really don’t need the smaller Vitamix. Okay, that’s probably the longest disclosure in blogging histor
This S30 Personal Vitamix is ideal for one person or a couple, or the person with a small kitchen and/or limited counter space, or the person who needs the “to go” container full of blended goodness as s/he heads out the door to work; to drop the kids off at school, soccer practice, etc. So I’m pretty sure that one of my loyal gfe readers could really put this blender to excellent use, so if you don’t mind a Vitamix S30 High Performance Blender that’s been used exactly twice—and afterwards thoroughly cleaned and returned to its original packaging—then throw your name in the hat for this baby. And thank you for helping me with my ongoing decluttering/purging for a simpler, more joyful life!
More Photos and Details on the Vitamix S30 High Performance Blender In This Giveaway
Like I said earlier, the Vitamix S30 is a personal size blender that’s ideal for the person on-the-go. It comes with two BPA-free containers: one 40-ounce container for small batches and one 20-ounce blend-and-go beverage bottle with a flip-top lid. Even with the 40-ounce container in place on the base, the unit will still easily fit under your upper kitchen cabinets. You can use this blender to whip up individual portions of smoothies or make small batches of soups, sauces and dressings. It’s great for chopping herbs and vegetables as well. Like a classic Vitamix, but smaller in many regards, but the fact that you can make your smoothies, salad dressings, cold soups, etc. right in the Tritan To Go container and then remove the base and use the flip-top lid and be out the door is the coolest!
As is true with the full-size Vitamix, you can use hot ingredients in the 40-ounce container to make hot beverages, soups, and sauces. Incidentally, the smaller container is double insulated to maintain the temperature of the contents.
While this S30 Personal Vitamix comes with only one personal container, the Tritan To Go Cup, if you’re purchasing one, you can get a package that includes two personal containers. Or if you win this one and have more than one family member making their own tasty concoctions to go, you can purchase additional containers.
Here’s a video from Williams-Sonoma that shows all the great features of the S30 Personal Vitamix. There’s also a fun, much shorter video on Amazon (click on link and then click on last image icon on left side of page) that features the family shown above and demonstrates the “grab and go” aspects of this blender.
This giveaway ends Sunday, September 14, at midnight Eastern. The winner will be randomly selected via Rafflecopter. There is one mandatory entry plus one optional entry for those who want an additional chance.
Good luck! (NOTE: Be sure to read disclosure at the beginning of this post before entering this giveaway.)
UPDATE: This giveaway is now CLOSED. The winner is Jacki. Congrats, Jacki! Her answer on what she’d make first in her Vitamix was:

Mama Marilyn says
We purchased our Vitamix Blender in 1988 (when our first 3 children were young). It was used daily for all of these years. It finally bit the dust last year… Made it’s last smoothie and in a puff of smoke, grinded to a halt. Time for a new one and The S30 is a perfect size, now that we too have downsized! The first recipe I would make is ‘Broccoli Soup’ from the Vitamix cookbook… which was the first recipe we made back in 1988!
Wee love smoothies but my blender is not the best

Hi Shirley — I’m not entering the giveaway as I already have a full sized Vitamix (which I love dearly and which gets used daily). Just wanted to say kudos on the de-cluttering efforts. I’m in the same boat — trying to convert to a minimalist, though it’s proving very hard in the kitchen as I love all my little baking gadgets and appliances. So I started with my closet instead 😉 . But I totally hear you and think it’s wonderful you’re sharing it with one of your readers. All the best to those entering!
What a great size for portability!
I live in a quite-small house (800 SF) and have about 5 linear feet of counter space in my kitchen. This would be great for me! The first thing I’d make is salad dressing and after that I’d make smoothie.
Jessica Stewart says
I would make pumpkin seed butter! Yummmm!
angela y says

With this blender I finally foresee lunch smoothies a success!
Lisa P says

Philippa Gaywood says

Shirley…I sooo hear you about wanting less “stuff” in life. I just cleared out my closet of clothes – long overdue! I was at costco today and they have the Vitamix on sale. But you know what? I love my 2nd hand 15 dollar Cuisinart…this thing is a gem! No more new stuff for me. Bless your heart for giving away a lovely blender to someone who might really get the best use of it! 🙂
Linda Gilbert says

I would make a green smoothie for breakfast. The rest of my family don’t like them, so this size blender would be perfect.

To be truthful….
I would offer it as a silent auction item in the Master Food Preserver program. We are volunteers who get fully trained through a UCCE program and then we go out to the community and teach and guide projects on a voluntary group basis with kids at schools, retirement homes, community service and particularly low income areas. However we have to buy all our canning and fruit veg supplies to teach and so we are organizing a silent auction of similar items we all have or can get donated to help raise funds for this upcoming season! And I am doing the same thing Shirley! Good on ya!
I would make “ice cream” with frozen bananas!
Megan Hart says
I would definitely make smoothies with mine!

Megan Ancheta | Allergy Free Alaska says
I’ve actually never seen this version of the Vitamix! How cool is that?! It’s hard to list one thing I’d make, because there are SO many possibilities! But definitely lots of smoothies. And dairy free milks. LOL! 🙂
What a cool product! I never knew there was a smaller Vitamix. This would be perfect for me as I don’t have a lot of counter space and I am short so, I don’t like to put things up. Thanks for the opportunity Shirley!
Jennifer Cox says
I’ve wanted a vitamix for soooo long. Oh the options that I could make….probably shrimp gazpacho. I need to use some of the tomatoes that a grew on my balcony this summer. 🙂
Shirley!!! I’ve just started getting back to facebook after a long hiatus. Hope all is well with you and the rest of the GFE fam. xo

Fun to “see” you!

Lisa Rago says
I would send it to my daughter who is a cancer survivor and newly married. She is now 5 hours from me and misses my vitamix. Would love for her to be able to make healthy drinks and things again.
Lisa S says
I’d make a peanut butter banana smoothie!
I’d make my daily banana-peanut butter smoothie: Almond or coconut milk, 1 sliced frozen banana, a spoonful of natural peanut or almond butter, a small spoonful of flax seed, a generous sprinkling of cinnamon, and a tiny pinch of sea salt. Yum!
I would love to make a green smoothie in this, I’ve tried in my traditional blender but it was a mess and just did not taste nice as it wasn’t powerful enough, I would love to be able to include the fiber in my green juices. Kale, Celery, Carrots, Green Apples and a little lemon and ginger wedge. Delish.
Becca Southwick says
I would love to win the vitmix. I’m using a blender. So I know the end product just isn’t the same. Thank-you for offering.
ellen casper says
I would make a berry protein smoothie,
Kelly Minyard says
I would make a Coffee banana smoothie.. my fave!
Ooo – hard choice. Maybe a green smoothie. Or then again, maybe a chocolate/banana one. Of course a mixed berry smoothies would be lovely. But wait! I really like shaunie’s idea of a coffee banana smoothie. Yumm!
Peanut butter banana smoothie 🙂
Rachel R. says
Why, oh, WHY, does Vitamix not make a personal-size “attachment” for their REGULAR blenders, like every other company out there? I, too, have a full-size Vitamix – and I hate pulling it out when I need to just make a smoothie for myself because I don’t like wash the bulky container just for 8-16 oz. (Plus it doesn’t *work* well with *too* small an amount.)
It sure would be nice, though, to get the personal-size blender cup without having to take up nearly double the counter space!
I would make a smoothie for myself – full of the supplements (green foods, oils, etc.) I’m supposed to be taking that my kids won’t eat.
Chrissy H says
A blue green smoothie of course.
The Celiac Husband says
I have never seen this version!
Je m’appelle Peter

I would totally make my own nut butters with this!!
Tamra Hill says
There are several smoothies I would try right away. Need this to get more fiber/roughage, etc in my diet. In an easy and tasteful way.
I would never leave my kitchen if I had a Vitamix. So many things to make!
The first thing I would make would be something with strawberries — it would be refreshing and nourishing!

Having a small, but powerful blender would be wonderful in a small kitchen like mine!
I so desparately need a new blender.
Green smoothie is just waiting to be made!
I would make a small batch of some homemade nutella. My daughter is addicted to the stuff (she’s 28 so not much I can do about it) and I’d like to offer her a healthier alternative.
The first thing I would make is homemade coconut milk.

I hopped by from Gluten Free Fridays to enter this giveaway. I would make a delicious green smoothie and some pureed soups with my VitaMix.
I would mix up a green smoothie, and I’m sure the kale would actually become part of the smoothie, rather than chunks floating around like it does when I use my old blender that we received as a wedding gift 36 years ago! 🙂
Soup, soup soup
