Calphelon Skillet Set Giveaway-$60.00

I just realized that I’ve somehow graduated from talking about cribs and strollers and diapers to more mainstream items.Β  Like cookware.Β  πŸ™‚

A few months ago Jeff and I were shopping and found a set ofΒ  Calphelon skillets on sale. We bought them thinking they’d be a great addition to our cookware since our main set is stainless steel, which is not great for anything really that you don’t want to stick, like omelets.Β  πŸ™‚ We got the pans home and have used them constantly. We LOVE them.Β  I really can’t say enough great things about them.

When CSN contacted me about offering one of you the same set of Calphelon skillets that I have, I jumped on it. Β Β  Retailing normally for over $100.00, this 10″ and 12″ set is a MUST have in your kitchen.

Entering is easy:

Just leave a comment on this post, and be sure to leave an email address by which I can contact you should you win.

For Extra Entries:

Be creative.Β  Leave me separate comments with ways in which you should get extra entries.Β  For example:Β  Do you follow me on Twitter?Β  If so, tell me so.Β  If not, begin to follow me.Β  And then tell me so.Β  Did you tell a friend about this contest?Β  If so, send them on over and you’ll get an extra entry.Β  You want to come clean my house?Β  That’s definitely worth a few entries.Β  Let’s talk.Β  πŸ™‚


CSN stores has not compensated me in any way for this giveaway.Β  Contest ends SUNDAY, MAY 2nd at 11:59 PM PDT and is only open to US and Canadian Residents.

    We’re actually looking for a new set of pots/pans. We’ve been doing lots of research. We’re still unsure of what brand to get. We’re trying to get away from Teflon-coated since we’re hearing that once it’s absorbed into the body it never leaves and there might be some long term effects from this. Of course, this only happens if the Teflon gets scratched off the pan. So, we’ll see what we end up with. I really like having something non-stick. How do you like you set? Pro/cons?

    my home management teacher instructed us many years ago to wait and buy one pan at a time and by something that is well made. I’ve been eyeing this brand for awhile.

    Amy Riley says

    So, I’ve had my pots and pans for 6 years now and would love something new! I feel like now is the time where I should say something clever and witty so that my comment will stick out among the many and make a huge impression…but I got nothin’…. Just love free stuff!

    Christy says

    Just came across your site on Scary Mommy site. Had to check it out (and follow you on Twitter) because as the mother of 4 sons, I often hum the traditional circus theme, proclaim (mainly on car trips) that “this is a circus”. I knew I would feel right at home.
    I could really use some updated replacements to my wedding gift pots and pans from 13 years ago.

  65. 339


    Except for one nonstick pan that I bought about 22 years ago, most of my cookware is from when we were married (39 years ago!) These pans would be wonderful, since my dh is now retired and likes to “pretend” that he can cook. I’d feel safer with him in the kitchen if he could use some nonstic skillet.
    Now if I could only train him to not use metal utensils on them!!!
