Crock-Pot – Ohhhh, the Crock-Pot! How could I get by without you? I received my first Crock-Pot as a wedding gift and I’ve been using them ever since. I use my Crock-Pots to make meat, soup, stew, pasta, dips and desserts. I currently have a 6 quart Crock-Pot, a Lil’ Dipper and three Crock-Pot Hook Up units: a 3.5-quart oval, a 2-quart circle and two 1 quart ovals.

2-Quart Glass Batter Bowl – We currently have two 2-quart glass batter bowls or measuring bowls, one 2-quart plastic measuring bowl, one 2-cup glass measuring bowl and one 1-cup measuring bowl. These bowls are used to make soup in the microwave, mix batter and melt chocolate.

Wilton Cookie Pan – I’ve had this pan for YEARS and I use it all the time. I can’t remember where I bought it and now I don’t know what I would do without it. I use it for making things like bars, chicken, and cookies.

Lindor Truffles – So there aren’t really a kitchen tool, but they are pretty amazing. I’ve been hooked on them for years and my kids even call them mom’s “special chocolates”.

Tovolo Silicon Spatulas – These spatulas are so awesome! I have these two mini spatulas as well as one of the larger Tovolo Silicone Spatulas. They work great and the heads are heat resistant up to 600 degrees. I use them for everything from buttercream to scrambled eggs.

Silpat and Roul’Pat Silicone Mats – I’ve been using my Silpat Silicon Baking Mat and my Roul’Pat Workstation Mat for over a year now and I love them! I use them for lining baking sheets, rolling out dough and for chocolate dipped items.

T-Fal Professional Nonstick 10.25-inch Fry Pan – We bought this frying pan specifically for making omelets and it is fantastic. We love omelets and having a great pan is the most important part of making them. This T-Fal pan with a Thermo-Spot Heat Indicator has excellent reviews, it lays completely flat on the cooktop, it is nonstick and the sides are gently sloped.

  1. Annamarie V says

    I am most excited to try the silpat silicone mats, I recently made some cookies and they really stuck to the pan so I would like to see if this would help.

  2. says

    All of the Kitchen tools are excellent, but I’m most excited about the Crockpot. It would be great to cook a meal all in one pot. It would definitely make life easier as well as save time.

  3. Raina DelRio says

    I would be most excited to try the silicone baking mat. I heard those are fantastic and it would be perfect for upcoming cookie baking.

  4. Lynzee says

    The crockpot! Mine doesn’t have a latch and the timer screen is breaking. I use it all the time and am dreading the day that it breaks and I am without one!

  5. Vikki Billings says

    My favorite is the crock pot, because I can cook anything in a crock pot and its so easy, easy to clean up. Just a blessing in the kitchen!

  6. Lindsay Wilson says

    I have one SIlipat, and I would love to have another, but I am most excited about the spatulas. A good spatula is something everyone needs, and I have been looking for a great one.

  7. Amy Honious says

    I want the Silpat most. I have 2 already, but those have both been used for cooking chicken wings….it would be great to have one dedicated to only sweets! Thanks for the awesome giveaway and happy holidays!

  8. Karen D says

    I am most excited about the silpat. It’s one of those things that I keep intending to buy, yet I never remember when I’m actually out shopping….

  9. Kassie says

    I have always wanted a SilPat. Not really sure why I’ve never bought one but winning one would be so awesome! I also love that Glass Batter Bowl!

  10. Bobbie Smith says

    I am really excited about the crock pot. I love cooking meals in one, and the one I have is 17 years old, and I can’t cook on low no more. I would be so thrilled

  11. Tabathia B says

    the tfal pan because it’s nonstick and our current one isn’t and makes a mess when making eggs in the morning

  12. Sarah L says

    I like making omelets so I’d like the T-Fal Professional Nonstick 10.25-inch Fry Pan.
    Thanks for the contest.

  13. Kristen says

    I’m most excited about the crock pot. We bought ours last year but never used it until 2 weeks ago when we went to visit a friend and toted along our crock pot and all the ingredients for a delicious pork roast. Everyone LOVED it and now I’d love to gift her a crock pot so we can both try out and swap more recipes.

  14. Angela Saver says

    I am most excited about the T-Fal Professional Nonstick 10.25-inch Fry Pan because we eat a lot of omelets & eggs in our home! I really need a good fry pan for this & this pan looks perfect for cooking our eggs & omelets!

  15. mechele Johnson says

    I am excited about the Silpat! I love Silpat 🙂 I have one, but would love more so I could cook more cookies at once.

  16. Angelica says

    I know it’s one of the small things but I have ALWAYS wanted a Sil-Pat. Definitely would be my favorite thing to receive!

  17. Julie Lundstrom says

    I am most excited for a new frying pan. New pots & pans are on my Christmas wish list this year. Also always need some cookies sheets.

  18. Birdiebee says

    I would be most excited to try the Silpat and Roul’Pat Silicone Mats. I have always wanted to try these for baking as well as rolling out dough, etc. They look awesome.

    • Brenna H says

      The Silpat mats help make for awesome, evenly baked cookies, and I love mini spatulas for scraping ingredients out of small containers! I just discovered those a couple of years ago and thought, “Where have these been all my life?”

  19. says

    I know it’s probably the least expensive thing on the list, and not even really a kitchen tool, but I LOVE Lindor Truffles! But I could also definitely use a second Crock-Pot for my family of seven!

  20. Elizabeth Leas says

    The crockpot…my hubby put mine in the oven and melted the handle on the lid. The other stuff would be icing on the cake.

  21. E. Diane Macauley says

    I really like the batter bowl! mine recently broke 🙁 .
    I also really like the T-Fal pan. I had one but it got destroyed by a house-sitter wielding a fork.

  22. Wehaf says

    I’d be most thrilled to get the slow cooker – I’ve wanted one for a while, and I know it would make my cooking life much easier!

  23. Fiona N says

    I love them all but am most excited to try the T-Fal Professional Nonstick 10.25-inch Fry Pan
    Thank You for the chance

  24. Jessica A/Jesstinger says

    I’d have to say the Crock Pot (we really need a new one) ~ but I must say that 2-Quart Glass Batter Bowl looks like it would come in very handy pretty much everyday! Thanks.

  25. Pam C. says

    I am giving “dinners” to all of my grown children this Christmas so winning this giveaway would be awesome. I think I am most excited about the crockpot. I would use it as a gift for one of my sons. Everyone needs a crockpot or two, and they have none.

  26. natasha says

    The non stick fry pan because Im in need of new pans in fact its on my Christmas list. Thanks for the chance to win.

  27. Charlee says

    P.S. Every recipe I’ve used for company has asked for the recipe. You are a gem! Thanks again. I’ve told a few about your web site.

  28. Charlee says

    I’ve never commented on your site before, just had to due to your fantastic surprises. I love your recipes and have made many of them. Each has such good flavors and I really appreciate your sharing these great recipes! The crock pot is my favorite “go to” tool. I use it a lot, even tho I’m not working any more and it’s just we two. I even love the left overs cold! Isn’t that awful! Thank you very much!

  29. Liz N says

    Awesome collection of goodies! I would be excited to get the Silpat mat – I’ve never had one but certainly wished I did!

  30. VickiT says

    While I desperately need a new crock pot, I am most excited about the Tovolo Spatulas. Those are THE best spatulas ever!! I need new ones because someone kinda messed mine up. 🙁 I’ve got both the long and short handled ones and tend to grab the short most often, but there are times that long handled one must be used.

    Awesome giveaway. Thank you for the chance.

  31. lissa crane says

    They’re all awesome, but the one I am most excited about is definitely the Crock-Pot ! I don’t have one, and I just know it would become a staple in my kitchen & something I use often!

  32. Tina W says

    I like the Crock Pot, mine is pretty old and could use an upgrade.
    (my silpats are also about 10 years old but they still look and work good as new!)

  33. Ty says

    I would love the 2 quart batter bowl the most because I would love to have a larger measuring bowl on hand for when I make larger quantities.

  34. Stephanie Cole says

    Love your blog and always look forward to receiving the next great recipe you’ll share with us. I have those caramel apple truffles on my holiday to make list! Great giveaway – who doesn’t need a Crockpot and a Silpat in their kitchen?!

  35. Stephanie Cole says

    Love your blog! I look forward to receiving emails for the next great recipe that you’ll share with your readers. I have those caramel apple truffles on my holiday to make list. Great giveaway!

  36. Barbara Bradford says

    I really need the 2 Quart glass, I can no longer read the measurements on mine.. though the chocolates are a lovely addition. Merry Christmas

  37. valerie says

    i’d be most excited for both the crock pot (i’ve been wanting my mom to have one for ages…i can’t believe she still doesn’t own one) and the SILPAT baking sheet for myself 🙂 lovely giveaway! such useful and awesome kitchen tools.

  38. Denise L says

    I’d love the Crockpot. We already have one that we use all the time, but the lid handle is broken which makes things difficult.

  39. Natalie R says

    Silicone mats! My last one was used as a cutting board by a friend before I could stop her 🙁 Really need a new set!

  40. Sherry W says

    I have a few Crock Pots but none with the clamping lid. Now you have me laughing at all the epic messes I have made on my passenger side floor mats!!!

  41. Cindy A. says

    I am most excited to win the T-Fal Professional Nonstick 10.25-inch Fry Pan. I have never used T-Fal so I’m curious to try it. Thank you so much for offering such a wonderful giveaway!

  42. Stacey Roberson says

    I really would love to check out the 30 Kitchen Tips and Hacks book. I could use some tips in the kitchen to utilize my time better.

  43. Christina Alvarez says

    Haha.. the frying pan!! My sister just moved out of my house and destroyed ALL of mine while she was here. O.O Good luck everyone!!!!

  44. Natalie J Vandenberghe says

    I would love to have the glass batter bowl, because I don’t have one. However, my daughter needs a crockpot. All the gifts are fabulous. Thanks for the giveaway.

  45. Kelly D says

    I am excited about the Wilton Cookie Pan because it will be great for all of the baking I like to do, especially during the holidays.

  46. Marla T says

    I love the slow cooker! Mine is over 20 years old and the handle is melting off! I use it for your wonderful slow cooker white chili with chicken! It is our favorite! Thank you!

  47. says

    I am asking for the Silpat mat for Christmas, and would love to have a RoulPat as well! Wheee, wouldn’t they be fun! Just found your blog via Pinterest, and will definitely be following! Can’t wait to make the peppermint patties too! Thanks for the nice giveaway and have a blessed holiday!

  48. Donna says

    Love the crockpot….I recently started using one that I bought (cheapest one I could find for one particular party) a while ago. I could really use one that works like a charm! Thanks for the wonderful recipes, and doing the giveaway. Happy Holidays!!

  49. carol clark says

    I’m most excited about the silpat mats cause i want to make peppermint bowls i saw on pinterest the other day

  50. Amy C. says

    I’m most excited about the crockpot. I’ve been wanting to get an updated one that has the removable liner. It’s such a pain to clean the one I have now.

  51. Pam Ellis says

    I’m most excited about the silpat mats! The holiday season is upon us and I could definitely use them for making peanut brittle, chocolate covered nuts, fudge, Christmas cookies, etc. This whole giveaway is fantastic. So many uses for all of the items listed. It was hard to choose just one!

  52. Jeannette Melton says

    I love the ideas in your giveaway, and I would have to say my favorite would be the Silpat mats. I don’t have any of those, instead use parchment paper, so this would be a nice surprise! Thank you!!

  53. rebecca lampinen says

    How do I pick just one of these wonderful products?! The glass measuring bowl would have to be my top pick because it is so functional, with so many uses!!! Would love to win it!

  54. Anne says

    Your favorite things are my favorite things, too! I think the one item I’d be most excited to win is the Roul’Pat Workstation Mat. I’d love a surface like that to roll pie crust, pat out scone dough, etc.

  55. Danyelle H says

    The T-Fal Nonstick Fry Pan, because my husband put our non-stick pan in the dish washer by accident and it striped the nonstick coating off so we’re been getting by with just our stainless pan, which can be a pain sometimes with things that love to stick.

  56. Deb says

    Ohhhh, the Crock-Pot is right! This is soup making season and my list is long. A crock-pot would certainly make my life easier. Thank you for this opportunity. Merry Christmas to all!
