It features a high performance motor with direct drive, all-steel gear transmission; a 5.5-quart (5.2 liter) stainless-steel bowl that locks to base; professional bowl-lift design; and multi-speed range from slow stirring to high beating. It also makes a great holiday gift. (Hint, hint.) Check out our other giveaways.

2. Copy the name of the recipe and its URL. The URL is the address that appears at the top of your browser window, here highlighted in yellow:


3. Go to Twitter, or your favorite Tweeting application such as HootSuite (our favorite), TweetDeck, or any of these five Twitter interfaces, and write a new tweet that includes the name of the recipe, the URL (you may want to shorten it), and the hashtag #myLCfavs.

Here are two examples:



A few tips and reminders:

  • You have only 140 characters, so shorten the URL and the recipe title, if you need to. If your program doesn’t have a link shrinker like HootSuite does, visit SnipURL.
  • Only tweets with working links to LC are eligible. Broken links ain’t cutting it.
  • You must include the hashtag #myLCfavs. It’s how we’ll pick the winner.
  • You can tweet as many recipes as you like–but you can tweet each recipe only once.
  • Feel free to follow us @leitesculinaria–you can see what others are choosing as their favorites and find out who the winner is.
  • Have fun!
