I’m Giving Away an All-Clad Slow Cooker!

September 9, 2012.   1153 Comments.   Categories Giveaways!, Kitchen Tools.   Tags , , , , .

Fall is here! Well, it’s almost here and I’m giving away an All-Clad Slow Cooker! In Colorado the arrival of fall weather is good news after this incredibly hot summer that started with dangerous and destructive fires. The air is cooler, the leaves are just starting to change and football is back! All of this means that I am in a good mood and feel like doing a giveaway! I can’t think of anything better to usher in fall than a new slow cooker from All-Clad.

This slow cooker is fantastic. I have had one for a few years and it produces delicious dishes. I also love the cast insert that you can put right on the stove to brown your meats before cooking them low and slow. The shiny stainless steel finish is so much prettier than those old fashioned slow cookers. I keep mine on the counter for months during the fall and winter soup seasons.

To enter the giveaway, simply leave a comment in the comments section below and tell me what recipe you would make first in your new All-Clad slow cooker. I’ll select a name at random on Friday, September 14th. Be sure to fill in your first and last name as well as your email address so I can reach you when you win!

Ready…. set….. GO! ;-)

UPDATE 9/15/12: THE DRAWING IS NOW CLOSED AND WE HAVE TWO WINNERS.

Thank you to everyone for entering and sharing your slow cooker ideas! I loved reading all the comments and it makes me wish I would win the lottery

so I could give each one of you a new slow cooker! In fact, this was so much fun I promise to give more of these slow cookers away this fall/winter. Due to the

issues with the comments section, I added a second slow cooker to the drawing to make sure everyone had a chance to win.

I randomly selected two winning names – one from these comments and one from the entries on the Facebook fan page.

 

Congratulations….

DORIS MERRITT

and

KACY SMITH

I will be in touch on Monday via email to arrange shipment of your brand new slow cookers!

 

 

Disclaimer: Photo credit: Williams-Sonoma.com. All-Clad and Williams-Sonoma are not affiliated with this giveaway. I will be purchasing this item with my own hard-earned money from Williams-Sonoma and it will be shipped directly to the winner soon after the winning name is randomly selected.

    In ‘my mind, it’s not what ‘I’ would make but my Son…. He and his roommates are attending college and working full time…… Their crockpot (was mine first 20+ yrs old) died…. They used it 5 out of 7 days and ate MUCH better than I ever did at their age……My son would probably make elk stew ( he makes a ‘mean’ stew) Of course, it would be in my ‘hand me down’, as ‘I’ would get the new one ( LOVE my child, but there are ‘limits’ to my generosity, lol) …………….. Considering time for shipping, I’m guessing I’d get it just in time for my pumpkin butter (Mmmmm, my favorite ‘butter’)and of course, the football chili

    Crock pot Pumpkin Pie Pudding

    –1 can of pumpkin puree (15 oz)
    –1 can evaporated milk (12 oz)
    –3/4 cup white sugar
    –1/2 cup Bisquick
    –2 eggs
    –2 T butter, melted
    –1 1/4 tsp cinnamon
    –1/2 tsp nutmeg
    –1/4 tsp cloves
    –1/8 tsp ginger
    –2 tsp vanilla extract

    The Directions.

    Use a 4 quart crock-pot and it was the perfect size. If you only have a big one, you can use it, but be aware that the batter will be spread out more and will cook much quicker. If you insert an oven-safe dish into the crock, it will work, but the batter will be quite thick and will take a VERY long time. Plan accordingly.

    Spray cooking spray into your crock-pot.

    Set aside.

    In a mixing bowl, combine all of the ingredients, and whisk until fully blended. No need to use a hand or stand mixer, just some elbow-grease.

    Pour the batter into the prepared crock-pot. Cover and cook on high for 3-4 hours, or on low for about 6. Check your “pie” after 2 hours on high, and 3 hours on low, then check every 30 minutes.

    When fully cooked, the pie will look just like a finished pumpkin pie. The batter will have browned and will crack in a few places. The center will have set enough for you to touch it without getting batter on your finger.

    Let sit in the crock-pot until room temperature, then spoon into serving dishes and top with whipped cream.

  359. I would make black bean and corn salsa pork chops!

  360. I could make a nice vegetarian shepherd’s pie in that crock pot!

  363. I would make my wedding soup with ground pork/beef/veal/chicken meatballs.

  364. My crock has beee a lifesaver on many days. I would probably make bean soup*AKA Funeral soup) My uncle Frankie used to make a big pot of “Bean Soup” each time there was a funeral, it was something that could stretch, was delishious and hearry! And since Uncle Frankie isn’t with us anymore, I think of him each time I make a pot, and wonder why it is not even close to his!

  365. I would make cassoulet.

  366. I myself do not have a crockpot, but we (my grandpa and I) tried your recipe for smokey chili in his crockpot and the entire family loved it! That would be the first thing I would make in a crockpot if I win it (or even if I don’t, when I can I’ll buy one and make it).

  379. I would have to make my delicious vegetable soup, especially since you can brown the veggies on the stove first!

  380. I am new to slow cooker cooking. I was given a very ugly old one but it is so much fun. I would probably start with my kiddos favorite Cranberry Pork Tenderloin or Santa Fe Soup. How ever there are so many new things I want to try.

  385. I’ll make this . . .

    Barbecue Pulled Pork Sandwiches

    pork butt (I used 2.5 lb – but you can use whatever size needed for your family)
    1 can Pepsi 1 – no aspartame
    1/2 bottle Stubb’s Barbecue Sauce (I plan to use my own, home canned sauce, but for you poor, unlucky types who don’t have that . . .)
    Lawry’s Seasoning Salt

    Generally coat pork butt with Lawry’s seasoning salt, don’t be afraid to cover it all! Place in crock pot and pour in soda and barbecue sauce. Cover and cook on low for 4-5 hours. If you have a larger piece of meat, it will probably take longer. After 4 hours or so, take two forks and shred the meat into bite size chunks. Let it sit in the juice to soak up all that flavor. It can stay on warm in crock pot while serving, and can easily be reheated the next day. Serve on a kaiser roll and add more barbecue sauce if needed.

    I like sliced pickled peppers, sliced onion, and mustard with BBQ sammiches.

    I’ll serve it on my low carb, gluten free waffle bread, ‘cuz wheat is poison . . .

    :o )

I have learned to appreciate coming home from work and the wonderful smells from the crock pot, I have tried some of your great recipes. My husband loves pot roast the most of course. I am excited to go back to our roots when we cooked much simpler foods. We love southern cooking. I can’t wait to try more yummy crock pot recipes! My little crock pot needs an upgrade!

  449. Thank you for showing off this wonderful cooker. I just learned about Crockin girls – and want to try some new recipes. I LOVE sauerbraten cooked all day – perhaps I would serve it with red cabbage – very German and Yummy!

  589. A whole chicken with leeks.Smells and tastes wonderful.

  590. So many good foods come out of slow cookers! I haven’t had one for about 4 years and I soooooo miss it. First thing I cooked would probably be beef stew. But veggie soup, BBQ chicken, or Chicken and Dumplings would follow close behind. Thanks for having this giveaway. I’ve been drooling over this very one for months now.

  591. Buffalo chicken macaroni & cheese

  592. I would make Balsamic Chicken, our family favorite! I would love to win this, as my slow cooker still works, but I have to use a pair of pliers to change the settings as the knob is broke lol. :)

  593. Nothing like a good pot roast with all of the fixings that are coming in from the garden. I love to use the sirloin tip roast and add carrots, parsnips, turnips, new potatoes, sweet onion, butternut squash, and mushrooms. I put together a hearty buillion base with a bit of sweet apple cider and of course fresh minded garlic, pepper, and salt to taste. Nothing like all of those wonderful aromas tempting you on a cool autumn day!

    • Sorry…forgot to give you my name! :)

  594. Since I don’t see my post I am being on the safe side and trying again! Your pork green chili stew. It is the BEST.

    February 22, 2009. Categories Chilis/Stews, Comfort Food, Slowcooker / Crockpot, Soups, Southwestern / Mexican.

  595. My husband, when he was 10 years old, created his own Chili recipe. I have the index card he wrote it down on and it is one of my little treasures. His Chili is a favorite in our family, and just as our family has grown and changed over the years (hence the reason for a bigger slow cooker) so has his chili recipe, but it would definitely be the first thing I would make in a new All-Clad Slow Cooker!!

  604. I would be making my yummy tortilla soup – it’s good not matter if the weather is warm (makes us feel like we are in Mexico) or cold (just makes us feel good – especially with a great marg!)
    Since I’m working in Denver now, this would come in very handy for weeknight dinners!

  605. We live by crock pot at least 2 nights a week – the very first meal to come out would have to be Lasagna, or maybe Chicken Posole, ooooo wait beef and leak sandwiches with au jus!!

  606. I would make taco chili! I would love to win this slow cooker! My husband and I both loved our other one – he was trying to be helpful and stir our meal one evening and place the lid on the counter but then accidently knocked it off and it shatter :(

  610. I would cook a nice beef stew in my cooker. Fall is here and we need something to warm us up.

  611. I would make a BIG ol’ pot of beef stew for my honey-pie!

  616. Ribs, Country style

  617. buffalo chili!

  618. Sept.14 was my cousins Birthday .We use to get together and cook all kinds of dinners together.On her Birthday her daughter and family and I get together and we cook ” POT ROAST” thats for YOU DEBBIE.WE LOVE and MISS YOU

  619. The first recipe I’d make is my mother’s beef brisket. She LOVED crockpot cooking because as a working mom, she wanted dinner to be ready as soon as she got home. I remember her telling me to chop, dice and sautée various items and she’d throw them together into her big pot. It would be an honor to her memory to share the same experiences with my kids. I am sure they’ll love dicing onions as much as I did!!

  620. Taco soup – or steel cut oatmeal – or green chili. . . not sure.

  621. I would make Italian Sausage Tortellini Soup. That would really hit the spot for the cold winter months we have arriving soon here in Northern Maine!!

  622. Sure would love to see a pot roastcookin in there!

  623. Wow! that is so nice of you, Laura! I would make Chili for football , of course! for my first meal in crockpot! My old crockpot is well worn and doesn’t heat properly anymore. :D

  637. I think I would have to initiate the slow cooker with a big batch of chili!!!

  638. My daughter and her family recently moved in with my husband and I. We grew from two adults eating dinner to 8 almost overnight. I love crockpot cooking. I think our first recipe would be some version of crockpot spaghetti or lasagna (since those are our grandbabies’ FAVORITES)!

  639. Hmmm hard choice, but my slow cooked pulled pork is always a favorite!

  640. I’d love to use this slow cooker to make German beef Rolladen, made from round steak strips tenderized and rolled up with onion, dill pickle and bacon.

  641. some spicy chicken gumbo to warm your heart….

  642. I would make my “busy batch”. It is kind of like “hearty beef stew” meets “enchilada soup”. Amazingly delicious and, most importantly, quick and easy. I often feel like the guy from the donuts commercial a long time ago. Especially the commercial where he is leaving the house saying “time to make the donuts” and realizes he is passing himself coming back in the door and the “him” that is coming in the house says in a very tired voice “I made the donuts”. So, I created my “busy batch”.

    • I just noticed you requested the last name, too. So, I posted this reply with it.

  643. When the weather gets cooler I love cooking a hearty beef stew. A crockpot would help me make a great stew. :)

  644. Oh, I would use that crockpot for so many delicious recipes. First though, I’ll make my grandmother’s Portugues Bean Soup! Ham shanks, onion, potatoes, tomatoes, portuguese sausage, and some cabbage and little macaroni last. Yumminess!!

  645. If I had that beautiful slow cooker I would buy a pork roast and make carnitas. It is so simple and delicious and smells delightful!

  646. White Chili Suprise will be my first endeavour in a new crockpot

  649. I’d make apple butter! I don’t have a slow cooker and totally want one. Thanks for the chance!

  650. Spicy Chicken-Vegetable & Cilantro Sausage Soup

  651. I would make Taco soup for a cool evening of watching football.

  652. I need a slow cooker as ours died. I had gastric bypass surgery nearly two months ago and there are so many healthy recipes that I want to try. I would start with a pot roast, I think, then soups for the fall.

  653. Chili – classic fall/football food.

  654. I would cook up my first batch of cinnamon apples!

  655. White chili for the very first crockpot recipe! When I downsized I didn’t think I’d use a crockpot so gave it to my daughter and miss some great recipes

  656. Chicken and Rice for the kids!!!

  657. Fantastic! We’re torn: we’ll use the slow cooker at first for one of two disparate recipes: a tomato reduction for canning of sauce/paste, and a blueberry reduction for the same purpose. We’re experimenting with creating yummy gifts for the holidays, and we think a sweet AND savory combo makes a perfect stocking stuffer. Our garden is in overdrive right now, and our last blueberry picking outing yielded 30 pounds currently in deep freeze!

  658. I am going to make homemade spaghetti sauce and eggplant “meatballs”. Then when the cold really hits, I am going to make the awesomist pho style veggie noodle soup. I would so love a new slow-cooker, especially this one :)

  659. The first thing I want to make is a hearty chicken and dumplings the whole family can enjoy. There are very few things that EVERYONE here likes and family dinner is so important. This is one of the few things I can get everyone to enjoy together.

  660. I love to use a crock pot, especially in the fall and winter. I think the first thing I would make in this crock pot would be that Smoked Chipotle Citrus Pulled Pork you posted a few weeks back! That sounded wonderful!

  661. Sticky honey hoison chicken

  662. My grandmother used to make a delicious creamy chicken for thanksgiving and I have made it as well, but have added my own touches to it and that would have to be the first thing I would make — it is my dad’s favorite and so it would be that that i would make…My kids love it as well…

  663. Chipolte Brisket (roast) Taco’s -they are fantastic

  664. My first dish in that marvelous cooker would be a whole chicken “pot-roast.” Some onions, chicken stock, garlic salt, seasoned salt, seasoned pepper, poultry seasoning–midway through, add peeled potatoes, carrots, and a couple shakes of ketchup! Wonderful!

  665. Fall is my most favorite season! I can’t wait to make some all day chili in my new crock pot!

  666. I’m perfecting chile colorado (or I was before my slow coooker died on me) and that’d be the first thing I cooked.

  667. I woudl make steel cut oats oatmeal….maybe apple cinnamon flavor !!

  668. I would make either chili or corned beef, cabbage & potatoes…yummy!

  669. Slow cooker short ribs or Slow Braised Beef

  670. I would love this slow cooker to make chili and and it’s the perfect time of year with the superbowl season just around the corner. michellevasko@yahoo.com

  671. I think I would make a short rib dish

  672. Highland Hotpot – it is from the LeLeche League Cookbook I purchased when my children were being born many years ago and is a family favorite. Beef and sausage stew with potatoes and apples.

  680. Braised short ribs with 2009 Transcendence Syrah. . .

  681. Pot Roast (!), although I recently saw a slow-cooker cheesecake recipe that sounds awesome. :)

  682. It’s still hot in southern Oklahoma. I like to make my roast in a slow-cooker. It doesn’t heat up my house. :)

  683. I would make meatloaf.

  684. My favorite thing to cook in slow cooker, red beans and rice. It’s so much easier than having to soak them or watch them. I also love the kind of slow cooker where you can brown your meat first.

  685. I would talk my wife into making her unbelievable tasty sweet & sour meatballs. It’s a unique combo of chilli sauce and grape jelly. Always everyone’s favorite at the appetizer table!

  686. Oh how I love my Crock Pot. I’d make pot roast made with Coke.

  687. Yum! It sounds like a lot of us are ready for cool fall weather and big batches of chili! If I win I’d love to make my white chicken chili for my family, and top it off with some delicious roasted hatch chilis! Thank you so much for the giveaway! :)

  688. Pulled pork tacos, of course. OR Buffalo Chili! Yum!

  689. Pot Roast Meal: 3 lbs. of a good meat to Pot Roast: I like Rump or you can use Bottom Round, London Broil or Shoulder. 8 fresh whole peeled carrots and 4 whole potatoes sliced in halves with their skins on; one medium onion diced, a minced clove of garlic, a tablespoon of horse radish, 1 cup of beef stock, 1/4 cup of a dark red wine, salt, pepper, a teaspoon of vegetable oil and 1/4 cup of cornstarch.
    In a large frying pan on medium heat place the diced onions and oil and saute for a few minutes. Add the meat and sear on all sides until brown while sprinkling with salt and pepper. Place the browned meat with the browned onions into the slow cooker. Add the beef broth , wine, garlic, peeled carrots, potatoes. Add the horse radish to the top of the meat and rub it in. Cook on high for one hour or less and turn down to low for 5 to 6 hrs. Let meat cool for at least 15 to 20 minutes before slicing. Make a gravy with the cornstarch and the juices. Its nice with some peas and buscits.

  712. we would use this for church socials and basketball nights :)

  713. I have been without a slow cooker for many years now. Since I have been taking care of my grandson Wyatt, doesn’t leave a lot of time for Granny to cook…Too Tired! So this would really come in handy! Wyatt is going to be 2 in November and for all of you Granny’s and momma’s, you know what I’m saying. :-) First dinner I would make would be a good ole roast w/carrots and tators, make gravy out of the liquid. We also love left over roast for good ole roast beef sandwiches!!! Roast is a comfort food, so reminds me of momma.

  722. I live in Florida, but, born and raised in Mass. It’s still quite warm here and will be, probably, till Oct.-Nov. I love to make my Boston baked pork and beans, in the oven, but it’s way too hot to put the oven on, for that length of time, here on the nature coast. All my cooking is done in iron skillets, that are well seasoned (can fry an egg without sticking) and easy clean up. I would love to be able to make my Boston baked beans without heating up the whole house. I know this slow cooker would be the best for this family recipe!
