Fussy Little Giveaway: Cookware Edition
Well, this is getting interesting. CSN Stores approached me about sponsoring a giveaway on the FUSSYlittleBLOG. They are an online retailer with over 200 stores, so if you are considering bar furniture to contain your expanding liquor collection or cookware for your kitchen, they will likely have what you are looking for. I haven’t counted to see exactly how many stores they have, but you can check them all out here.
But giveaways can be disappointing, since they generally have only one winner.
And do you really need one more thing cluttering your home?
I think I came up with a solution for both of those problems. Because this giveaway will have three winners, and the prize (while modest) is an indispensable piece of cookware that you will use all the time, and that will last you the rest of your life.
Maybe you learned about my favorite pan when I originally wrote this post almost a year ago. Well, not much has changed. Except that my 10-inch cast iron skillet is even better now that it was then. That’s part of the beauty of the beast.
So I decided that if could give three readers a 10-inch cast iron skillet, this would be a worthwhile promotion. It is the perfect size for making a grilled cheese sandwich, French toast (for one), burgers, an omelet, an egg-with-the-hole-in-the-bread, a frittata, or even simply heating up leftovers.
As luck would have it, cookware.com carries the pan. Granted, I have a Lodge and this one is Emerilware. I’m not a big fan of the chef and his mug, but the pan is manufactured by All-Clad and has a lifetime warranty. That means every time you cook using what will surely become your new favorite pan, you will think of the FLB and hopefully smile. It sounds like a good giveaway to me.
Now officially, the prize isn’t the pan.
The prize is a $20 gift certificate to any of the 200+ CSN stores.
But I want you to get this pan.
Really I want all of you to get this pan, but I only have three gift certificates to give away. So here is what you need to do:
1) Comment. Any words with a real email address is fine. I will be submitting the winners’ email to CSN and they will send you the certificate.
2) After you comment, for a bonus entry tweet about the giveaway. Just don’t forget to include the text “@my50cheeses” so I can see that you did it.
3) After you comment, for another bonus entry you can blog about the giveaway. Just make sure that you link back to this post so I can track it.
That is all. Winners will be selected by 11:59 PM June 6, 2010 using a random number generator.
Final disclaimers: I received no personal compensation for this promotion, and am acting on good faith based on emails with the CSN Stores promotions team. Neither Daniel B. nor the FUSSYlittleBLOG will be liable should CSN fail to fulfill the prizes as described above. If a winning email address proves to be invalid, for whatever reason, the prize will be forfeited and awarded to a runner-up.
