If you've been in Mrs. Larsen's room lately, maybe you’ve noticed the new bright red blenders. These blenders are called the “Total Blender” and were donated by Blendtec, a company in Orem that also makes grain mills.

The Total Blender is a professional, $500.00 machine that every Food Lab in Nebo School District received. Our school received eight of these blenders for free! Mrs. Larsen, the Foods teacher said, “This is a truly amazing blender!”

The Blendtec was designed to blend just about anything.  When it was tested for the first time, it turned golf balls, 15 feet of rubber hose, and the shaft of a golf club into a smoothie! That's one powerful blender! The machine has seven settings to make things like juices, milkshakes, and frozen yogurt.  And if you make soup, it will keep the soup warm! Now that's amazing!!! 

Check out the new blenders in room 50, or go to to find out more. Happy Blending!
