* Versatile vessel shapes that accommodates several different cooking techniques

What would I make if I won this fabulous pan? I'd make reservations at the restaurant because it just too "pretty" to dirty up. :-)

Hey Ron!
How can I not enter - I'll take a free pan! I enjoy reading your blogs and I hope you enjoyed my brownies. You know where to find me - talk to Mike if we win. :)

Wow! Even your old pan looks better than 80% of my current cookware. I am now wise to the fact that I should only have cookware that will also do oven duty (handles, you know). So...I hope your scope for this giveaway includes your CANADIAN fans...we DO have ovens and could really use the prize...to prepare a lovely Indian-spiced braise for two, a recipe yet to be determined. I am at vivian22@telus.net

Oops - forgot to say what I would make! Dinner, of course! Although this would be a good pan for making my chocolate madelines...yum!

I am ashamed to admit that a piece of cookware is making me drool! Can saucepans be sexy? Yes ... yes, I do believe they can ... I would probably make peanut butter sauce for ice cream sundaes first :)

make my first marinara sauce from scratch! (posted as anonymous but this is your lunch buddy Kate!)

Marsha said...

I have no nonstick cookware, and I am anxious to try Jacques Pepin's crusty chicken thighs with mushroom sauce. This pan would let me do that! Thanks for the opportunity.

JessCo said...

So...I don't know what I'll make, but I know I will let inspiration take over! ...if I were to win this. Thank you Ron for all of your provided inspired works! I know I love your/my(now) oatmeal, and I've love sharing it with others :)

Hey Ron ... that saucepan would be wonderful for making the simple syrup I like to have on hand for summer cocktails! Come on down to Kansas and sample! Debbie let.them.eat.cake.debbie@gmail.com

Amy said...

I'm not sure what I'd make, maybe some rice pilaf or orzo with spinach and sun-dried tomatoes (2 of our favorite side dishes). This is exactly the type/size pan I've been looking for. Thanks!

Great looking pan! Thanks for the opportunity to win. I'd make some oatmeal for breakfast - my new favorite is chocolate oatmeal.

Looks pretty enough to make caramel sauce in! I use to work pastry at Roy's Poipu Bar & Grill in Kauai, Hawaii and loved the caramel sauce we made there. SUPER important to have a good pan or the sauce could crystallize. Yum... think I should go to the store and get ready-- this pot is MINE!! Thanks! :)

Starfish said...

Love the pan! I don't have a set, just a few gems. This would fit in nicely. I would probably make one of my family's favorites...irish oatmeal. Simple, delish!
Ciao,
