Win a Potato Masher!

by in Giveaway, December 7, 2011

You could win one of these.

Smash spuds in style with the spudski, a chic ski-pole masher from blac+blum. The rubber handle makes mashing instantly easy, while the cross-stitching in the back adds a nice old-fashioned touch.

The experts over at blac+blum designed the spudski so the potato chunks are pushed away from the stem — making mashing both faster and neater. We love it because mashes are a healthy way to eat root vegetables, like potatoes, celery root, beets and rutabaga.

You can buy your own spudski or enter in the comments for a chance to win your own. Just let us know, in the comments, your favorite mashed potato add-in. The contest starts at 9:30 a.m. EST today, and ends on Friday, December 9 at 5 p.m. EST.

We’re giving away one spudski potato masher to one very lucky, randomly selected commenter. You must include your email address in the “Email” field when submitting your comment so we can communicate with you if you’re a winner.

You may only comment once to be considered and you don’t have to purchase anything to win; a purchase will not increase your chances of winning. Odds depend on total number of entries. Void where prohibited. Only open to legal residents of 50 U.S. states, D.C. or Puerto Rico, and you must be at least 18 to win. For the first day of the giveaway, all entries (answers) must be entered between 9:30 a.m. EST on December 7 and 5 p.m. EST on December 9. Subject to full official rules.
