Le Creuset New Years and Book Celebration Giveaway

Le-Creuset-new-years-and-book-celebration-giveaway-from-Slim-PalateI wanted to kick off the New Years and celebrate the upcoming release of my brand new cookbook with a giveaway for you guys who support me so much from the generous people behind Le Creuset. In my kitchen Le Creuset is an absolute staple when it comes to cookware which exactly why I wanted to pay it forward to you guys by giving away a couple of my favorite pieces from them. The two pieces included in this giveaway are a 5.5 quart Round French oven and an 9.5″ stainless steel frying pan.

The-Slim-Palate-Paleo-Cookbook-CoverIn my cookbook that’s currently on pre-sale on Amazon, and Barnes and Noble, as mentioned before,  I used their  French ovens in many of my recipes and I really enjoy them along with their frying pan. My absolute favorite is their round french oven which I use for many things such as braises, soups, stews or even using as a roasting pan. As for the fry pan it works wonderfully as a multi purpose pan for both searing, sautéing or even making sauces. These pieces have proven to be durable and incredibly useful in my kitchen for just about anything so I hope whoever wins these gets as much use out of them as I do. The contest starts today at 7:30 AM and ends on January 9th at 8:00 PM (my birthday!) so try and get your entries in by then using the Rafflecopter widget below. I wish everyone good luck in the giveaway and a happy New Year!

Notes: This giveaway is limited to US addresses only due to shipping restrictions, customs, etc. from Le Creuset. Sorry to those of you who live out of the US as I have no control over that! -J

    Love it! A good frying pan and french oven are a must. My husband and I just moved and we lost our french oven- I’ve always coveted le crueset pieces!

    Congrats again on your book!

  2. Inger says

    If I win them I’ll give them to my 16 year old daughter who loves to cook and is amassing her own cookery collection before she leaves home. : )

  3. Sue says

    Well I commented before I read the entry! I would love to make my favorite Paleo alfredo chicken in these awesome pans!

  4. says

    Shared on FB, pinned to Pinterest under If I Win The Lottery. I’m nearly 50 and just now learning to cook right. I’ve always heard the right cookware is KEY.

  5. Dawnette says

    Awesome Giveaway!! But can not pin the pic, it says that it is suspicious… Any way to correct that?? Thank you for all you do! :)

    • Dawnette says

      The third time is the charm! I was finally able to pin it! I would love both I love to use a saute pan and finish in the oven… and lots of soups and one pot meals in a french oven.

      Thank you again.. I just preordered your cook book!! WOOT! Congratulations!

  6. Jessica says

    If I win these amazing tools, I will use them to try out a few new recipes from the Slim Palate cookbook…and use them to prep some old favorites too!

  7. Lauri says

    If I win these, I will use them to cook amazing things in 2014. (BTW – Pinterest blocked me when I tried to use the Pin It button from your site.)

  8. Kim says

    I did what I could. Pinterest wouldn’t let me pin because it blocked it as possible spam :( Anyhow, would LOVE to win these. The dutch oven is so versatile I have a pile of recipes I’d like to try in it!

  9. Katrina says

    I would use them them for soups, braises, or any one pot meal. If I had it today, my collards would go in the Dutch oven. You are an inspiration to everyone…to be so young and to have your act together in the kitchen! :)

  10. Renee L says

    I’m looking forward to making some delicious, long-simmering stews that’ll start with a wonderful Le Creuset sear!

  11. Ray Toth says

    I’ll use it to replace a no longer fully functional Le Creuset dutch oven – and of course, to cook up some awesome paleo dishes!

  12. Margot C says

    I’m thinking that I would brown the outside or a gorgeous beef roast in the fry pan then popit in the French Oven and cook it slow for a long time with some fantastic flavors from your book.

  13. Samantha V. says

    We just started the Paleo way of life a week ago, so many recipes I see use the French Oven, I know there are alternatives but it would be nice to make a great pot roast in one.

  14. Heather S says

    I would keep the oven and gift the pan to my sister who really needs one! And I would make a stew in the oven!

  15. L Tirino says

    Would love to cook my Paleo stews in this. Le Cruset is the best. Still have my le cruset staple pot from college!

  16. Jeanne says

    I’ll try some new recipes using the french oven. I’ve always wanted one. If I get the fry pan, well good fry pans haven’t made it to my cupboard yet! So I’d be real excited to get this, too!

  17. Paige H. says

    If I won these pieces, I would use them to cook wonderful, grain free meals for my future husband. (I also shared on Facebook).

  18. Devyn says

    Le Creuset Dutch oven would be such a dream! Beautiful to look at, easily goes on stovetop or in oven, and even has a bright cherry gloss finish to match your kitchenaid mixer 😉

    So many recipes need it–I need it, too!

  19. Michael says

    Shared on Facebook but I could’ve used the dutch oven today in cooking – I’ve been braising a lot of cabbage lately!

  20. April says

    I did everything but the pinterest post- it seems to be blocked. Congrats on your new book and best of luck in 2014!

  21. April says

    If I win I am going to have so many recipes to catch up with- I don’t currently have a french oven but I have been longing for one for a while now! Thanks for the giveaway!

  22. Courtney Foster says

    I plan on replacing an old scratched up pan with the stainless steel one. I’d love to use the french oven for pork carnitas.

  23. Emily Elise says

    These would be a perfect start for my kitchen and perfectly timed since I’m getting my own place this month!

  24. Amanda says

    If I won these two pieces of cookware they would be help me to start replacing the cookware I had to get rid of when I went gluten free (and now working towards paleo), and help have a clean fresh start.

  36. Erika says

    First, thanks for the giveaway and congrats on the cookbook! I’d love to win these pieces to continue to show my little girls the importance of cooking and eating at home.

  37. Diana Cote says

    I plan to use them everyday, I am a stay at home mom to a toddler so I cook 3 times a day most of the week. I have been dreaming of some Le Creuset, specially their dutch oven to make soups, stews, Casseroles, aromatic caulirice and even pot roasts. This would really be a godsend in our household. Thank you for the giveaway and Happy New Year!

  43. Melissa L. says

    If I won this set I would first make a ham & potato soup in the Dutch oven. Next I would pan sear stuffed pork chops in the pan & bake them in the oven to finish. Mmm.

  69. Mars says

    I have always drooled over my friends that have Le Creuset pieces. Maybe one day I’ll have one too! <3 Thanks!

  70. jennifer says

    I would use the pot for making soups and roasting meat. I tried to pin on pinterest but it was blocked because of possible spam

  71. Crystal B says

    I so very badly want the dutch oven!!!!
    I make soups and stews and such ALL the time, and am in desperate need of one of these, but cannot afford one, no matter how I try! :)

    And it’s not possible to pin this on pinterest. It claims it is spam.

  72. Abby says

    If I had these, I would have an extra reason to rehab my diet and finally get well. Sick of IBS and its related problems…

  73. lauren says

    I have been trying to slowly (and i mean sloooowwwly) change over from nonstick to stainless steel or other non-toxic cooking methods. This would help so much! I have so many health problems that I am trying to control everything I can from cookware to quality of foods, oils, etc. Thanks for having this awesome giveaway!

  74. Robin Renee says

    I have shared this giveaway on my FB!! Happy early birthday, fellow Capricorn!! I hope you will make my wish come true for my birthday – on the 17th- & select me to win the cookware (that I desperately need because I have non stick pans that are smelling kinda toxic nowadays). I will use the cookware to try out paleo recipes!!! I have recently decided I am going paleo. :)

  75. Rebecca u. says

    I’d love to make some soups & stews with these wonderful pots! My family would love it! Since going grain free (due to auto immune issues) I’ve been eyeing some pots like these. :-)

  76. Jessica says

    Shared! I would use these every day for everything! The French oven would be great for soups (and it also matches my red kitcen appliances), and pan would be perfect for trying the farinata recipe I have been wanting to try!

  77. Amber says

    Would make some delicious soup with bone broth during this chilling wintry weather! Great giveaway. Thanks for the opportunity!

  78. Nan Werdin-Pfisterer says

    Oooooh, I can nearly smell a nice caribou roast cooking up in that french oven. Le Creuset’s colors always make me smile! :-) (although I am smiling while drooling a bit thinking about that caribou roast)

  79. Brooke Ferandell says

    I would make my delicious bone broth. Try some beef bourgeon (spelled wrong) and many other delicious dishes as I start my trek to being completely pale

  80. Jarelis says

    Shared on Facebook, hope I get lucky since I need good kitchenware. I’m trying to get rid of my old teflon junk. It’s stainless steel, iron cast, french ovens, glass and stone ware fron here on out. These would be a great way to start. 😀

  81. Denise says

    What a great give-away, I have wanted one of those pots for awhile now. It would be a bonus now that I have found your blog for skinny recipes. YAY!

  82. says

    I am not on facebook. Is there another way to enter the contest? I would really love to win these pans! I am trying to turn over a new leaf this year by feeding my family healthier foods. We used to eat a mostly paleo diet but over last year and a half we have backslided. I am looking forward to getting back on track, and these pans (and your cookbook) would be a great help in that :)

    Blessings to you,

  83. Natalie J Vandenberghe says

    I will give them to my daughter (so she doesn’t have to use my hand-me-downs) Thanks for the giveaway!

  84. Rhonda says

    I am entering sweepstakes that have prizes that will help me on my journey to a healthier life. Thanks for offering this and also for writing your book. I shared this on Facebook.

  85. Kelly G. says

    I plan on cooking a whole chicken (if it will fit?) in the big red pot and frying up some bacon in the smaller :))

  86. Anita says

    My brother in law is a chef and he uses Le Creuset, I would just love to be able to use these amazing dishes in my kitchen – everyday

  87. Judi says

    First I would pick my chin up off the floor!!! I have wanted this “Big Red Pot” for so long.
    Then I would make stew! Warm, clean, comfort food! Yummy!

  88. Deonna Bishopp says

    If I won these pieces, I would use them to cook wonderful food & they’ve been on my want list for a very long time!

  89. Ashley Y. says

    This is the best giveaway I’ve seen in the new year so far! I would loooove to add these pieces to my kitchen.

  90. Amelia says

    I plan on making friggin’ amazing stews because I don’t have a big enough pot for that right now. Also, my big frying pan went to h-e-double hockey sticks and I wanna cook real sized meats instead of cubes (all I have is a small, very small frying pan). I drool for Le Creuset.

  91. says

    I plan on writing music and harvesting clementines from the tree in the backyard while some sweet basil chicken stew simmers in the pot you gave away to me. And smiling. And sending you warm energy. And I plan to give away to someone lovely and deserving who needs it- my sister, a young woman just transitioning out of college and into having a home, a much needed frying pan. teaching her to use it? we’ll see…

  93. Jennifer S. says

    The dutch oven would be perfect for a pot roast I made this weekend. It worked fine in my stock pot, but a dutch oven would be much better.

  94. Karen Prahm says

    Ohhh! I would cook up a wee storm with these! Us Irish folks love our stews and this would be perfect for them :-) Liked and Shared, please pick me!!

  95. Keegan says

    At the top of a loooong list- Dutch oven: a bison roast cooked to perfection! Fry pan: Seared scallops! :) MMMMMMM!

  96. Lauren S. says

    I have been coveting one of these for the longest time! I would cook so much in it, but first would be some slow cooked chicken!

  97. Sasha Werner says

    If I won, I’d try out a recipe from your book!! Also have some yummy soup recipes I’ve collected recently! Fingers and toes crossed!

  98. Kristen says

    I plan to hug the Dutch oven, twirl the frying pan, make every dinner for the rest of my life with them, and pass them on to my kids. Le Creuset, you complete me. Thanks Slim Palate for your beautiful recipes!

  99. Christine Ballenger says

    I cook all the time, but I tried braising, since I don’t have a Dutch oven! I’d definitely try out your new country ribs recipe straight away if I won!
