Two Sweepstakes with Cookware Prizes, and One Cook-Off!

Anyone who loves to cook knows how valuable a good set of cookware is. Even those who have no love of cooking, still know that these things are some of the little necessities of life. A good set of cookware makes life just a little bit easier, and often even a little bit more enjoyable.

So, here are two sweepstakes to give you the chance to win some cookware, and a cook-off so you can share your hard-earned skills to possibly win some cash and more!

Biltmore Gourmet & Entertaining Sweepstakes

This is from Biltmore, as in the Biltmore Estate of Asheville, North Carolina.
So, the set is, yes, quite lovely, and made primarily from stainless steel so it will be durable, too.

Grand Prize winner will receive a Biltmore Chef Series Belly Shaped 13-Piece Cookware Set, valued at $230.00. Set includes:
(1) 1.6-qt. covered sauce pan with double pour spout
(1) 2.3-qt. covered sauce pan

(1) steamer insert that fits the 3.4-qt. sauce pan

Two runners up will receive one Biltmore Cheesecake valued at $13.99. Winners choice of: Italian Mascarpone Torta, Creme Brulee, Vanilla Bean and Blackberry Crisp.

(Oh, my! I think that Creme Brulee sounds luscious... but don't they all!)

Open to legal U.S. residents, 18 years or older. One entry per person, one prize per household. Ends March 31, 2014.

Farberware Start Your Tradition Sweepstakes

Martha White® Lodge® Cast Iron National Cornbread Cook-Off 2014

This is a contest, so takes careful reading of the rules in order to keep from being disqualified. However, if you have the skills to make a good main dish recipe using Martha White® cornbread, cooked in Lodge® Cast Iron Cookware, it could be worth your while.

Of course, anybody worth their cornbread knows that there's no better way to cook it than in cast iron cookware ; )

This is the first phase of this contest, and it ends on February 28, 2014. Ten finalists will be chosen, based upon certain judging criteria, from this phase.

Finalists are then required to compete in the National Cornbread Cook-Off in South Pittsburg, Tennessee, on April 26, 2014, in order to qualify for prizes. This is at your own expense, and you must bring your own ingredients and kitchen equipment, excluding a stove. Competitors will still receive a $500 reimbursement to help cover these expenses.

Winners of the cook-off phase will be awarded prizes as follows:

*First Prize-$5,000 cash; a 30-inch FiveStar® stainless steel gas range (ARV $3,250) from Five Star® Professional Cooking Equipment, and special gifts from Lodge® Cast Iron and Martha White (ARV $50)

*Second Prize-$1,500 cash and special gifts from Lodge® Cast Iron and Martha White (ARV $50)

*Third Prize-$1,000 cash and special gifts from Lodge® Cast Iron and Martha White (ARV $50)

*Seven Honorable Mention Prizes of $150 cash and special gifts from Lodge® Cast Iron and Martha White (ARV $50)

Enter as often as you wish, but only one entry can qualify as a finalist. Individuals only, no groups or teams are allowed to compete. Open to U.S. Residents 18 or older, except food professionals, and who have not been finalists or winners in a sponsor contest in the previous 12 months (a cook-off for Pillsbury, for example).

Good Luck!

Check the rules for judging criteria and photo size requirements, etc.

If you are a big fan of the Broncos or Seahawks, here is your chance to go to the big game. Better still, if you are a big fan of Ellen DeGeneres, too, prepare for the chance of a lifetime!

Ellen is looking for a lucky contestant to win a trip to the Super Bowl, as a special guest on her Super Bowl show!
