[THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED.]
I have long had a love affair with cast iron. From way back in the day when my mom cooked hamburgers in the cast iron skillet on Saturday nights (served with tater tots and cottage cheese – one of my favorite meals as a kid!) to today when I’m using my own skillets at least once a week, I can’t stress enough how versatile these pans are. From stove top to oven – fry, sauté, braise, dry roast, bake, broil – these pans take a beating and still come out looking like champs. Without a doubt, my cast iron skillets are some of my most beloved items in the kitchen.
And that’s why I’m sharing the love with you during Round 3 of “My Favorite Things Holiday Giveaway” series! Either keep them for yourself or give them away as gifts this season – anyone who even halfway knows their way around the kitchen will love one of these skillets!

Hmmm – Its a toss-up between my Le Creuset French ovens and my Kitchenaid, but I think my Kitchenaid wins.

My KitchenAid mixer
We are jsut starting to outfit our kitchen so right now it is my oven. I use it all the time. Hopefully one day I will have a KitchenAid stand mixer.
It’s so hard to choose, but I’d have to say my silpat mat.
My Wustoff 8″ Chef’s Knife. It’s like and extension of my hand.
I couldn’t live without my KitchenAid stand mixer. My husband thought that I was crazy to spend so much money on a mixer when we were first married. That was 25 years ago!
Mine is my pie crust shield. Couldn’t live without it!
I could not live without a good set of knives…nothing worse than a dull blade!

I absolutely love my bread machine. I got it for $8 at a thrift store. And I’ve used at least once a month in the past 2 years that I’ve had it. My mom used to make bread/pastries all the time when I was a kid, but having 4 kids myself and working full time it was hard to find the time to do the work myself. But since I’ve gotten my bread machine I don’t worry about the time it takes to make it, I just fill it and let it go.
My current favorite is my dutch oven – I just got one for the first time and am LOVING it!
Whew! That’s a hard one. I am going with my fluted pans. I’m a little obsessed with them right now. 🙂 Have a blessed day!
This is so hard for me to pick just one – I have many favorites. But, if I have to choose one my KitchenAid mixer would be at the top.
This is an awesome giveaway.

My Kitchen Aid mixer. (And I was gonna say that even *before* I read Comment No. 43!) I love how I can set something mixing and walk away to do something else. And it was a huge splurge at the time, but I’ve never regretted it.
At the risk of repetition – my Kitchen Aid mixer!!!!
Does my husband count? He does almost all of our cooking since I started school again. I think my favorite is my whisk. It’s not even a fancy whisk, but I seriously love whisking things. Easily amused much, huh?

my kitchen aid stand mixer
My stainless steel kitchen knives. Not only do they stay super sharp, they look stylish, too!
My Kitchen Aid Stand Mixer!
My knives. l couldn’t live without them.
I adore my cobalt blue Kitchen Aid mixer and a few months ago would’ve picked that hands down but *now* I’d have to say it’s a tie between my mixer and my enamel coated cast iron dutch oven. Since I bought it I find myself trying to come up w/ an excuse and recipes to use it as often as possible. 🙂
Side note: I’d never seen those cast iron pan scrapers before. They look really cool! Those would definitely help me get more use out of mine. I love cast iron pans but have trouble cleaning the dang things!
i’d have to keep it simple and say my gas oven.
The one thing I treasure most in my kitchen is a big mixing spoon that my “nana” used when making her spaghetti gravy. She was born in Sicily and came here when she was 2 years old. She lived with us for my whole life and pretty much raised me while my parents worked. Pasta was a staple in our house, and that spoon was used every time she made her big pot of gravy. I use it now every time I make gravy, too. My son told me that even though I have a kitchen full of wonderful gadgets and great tools, All-Clad pots and pans and Wustoff knives … the only thing he wants when I’m gone is the nana spoon!
My Kitchen Aid mixer : ) My boyfriend got it for me last year for Xmas and it was the best gift I have ever received!!
My french press! Nothing is better than freshly pressed coffee in the morning.
My stand mixer!
My kitchenaid stand mixer definitely made me a better baker! I love it so much!

My favorite would have to be my crockpots, yes I have 1 in each size.
I can make just about anything in them!
Okay so it’s not exactly a gadget, but my favorite thing in my kitchen is my tall goose neck faucet! Every task is easier because of it. I just got it (for my birthday) in September, and now I don’t know how I lived my entire adult life with low in the sink faucets!
Without a doubt…my kitchenaid mixer, plus all the attachments!
I can’t live without my dutch oven; I use it for everything!
I also would have to say my crockpot. My husband isint the biggest fan, but he’s not the one trying to cook with a 2.5 and a 1 year old lol!
My favorite is my toaster oven! Can cook almost anything in it, and I don’t heat up the whole house by turning the big oven on
My Kitchenaid knife, and my casserole dish. Gotta have them both!

My Wusthof Santoku knife is my can’t-live-without piece of kitchen equipment!
My favorite kitchen item would have to be my plain old tea pot! We stopped drinking sodas a while back so now we make gallons of tea and my 8 cup pot is the best. We actually could use any pot… but it wouldn’t be THE tea pot!
It would have to be my kitchen aid mixer.
I couldn’t live without my 5 qt. sauté pan. I use it for everything!
Yikes…..i actually have two favorites!
My crockpot and my blender!! 🙂
Love, love, LOVE this give~a~way!!
I totally love my crockpot! As a matter of fact, it’s going in the kitchen right now with a roast, potatoes & carrots. Yum. 🙂

It’s a tie between my enameled cast-iron Dutch oven and my Kitchen Aid mixer. I’m a cook and a baker, so it’s hard for me to choose which one I love more!
Definitely my KitchenAid, my husband bought it for me as an early Christmas gift and I absolutely love it. I’m not even sure how I got by without it before.
My favorite tool in the kitchen is the microwave. I’m a new ‘housewife’ and soon to be mom. The microwave has been my lifesaver while I’m teaching myself to cook.
My chef’s knife is my most beloved kitchen tool.
I have been pining after a cast iron skillet so I REALLY hope I win this one!
I would have to say I adore my Red kitchen Aid Mixer!

My Kitchen Aid stand mixer
I literally gasped outloud with excitement when I saw this giveaway! I am totally in love with my kitchen aid mixer and my panini press that I recently got as a gift. I use them all the time! 🙂
My grandmother’s sifter. It is very old, made of metal and has a dent, but I just love the history and I will never replace it.

Lodge cast iron brings back so many memories. My grandfather makes the most wonderful cornbread in a VERY well seasoned cast-iron skillet. As for me, I love finally having knives that are sharp enough to do their job!
My Kuhn Rikon knives! So useful and so many fun colors!
I live for two things – my crockpot… and mini-loaf pans! LOVE THEM!
My food processor!! I love it & use it for everything. Can’t wait to use it for baby food too.

My favorite kitchen accessory is my Chef’s Knife from Pampered Chef! I love it & cannot live without it!
My good knife!! I couldn’t survive without it!
My favorite kitchen tool is the enamel dutch oven my daughter gave to me for Christmas 2 years ago. From soup to braised short ribs it has truely opened my eyes (and ambition) to wonderful options for cooking. My grandson now says “yummy things are coming out of Nana’s red pot”!
My stand mixer. I don’t know how I survived before owning one.
Definitely my Kitchenaid mixer. Good cookie sheets come in a close second though!
The cuisinart food processor. Although I would love to have a cast-iron skillet!
I love my sliding measuring spoons from Pampered Chef….they were left by the husband’s ex-wife & they’re awesome!
A good knife. I’m useless in the kitchen without a good knife 🙂

This is probably the simplest answer ever, but I couldn’t live without my bamboo all-purpose tool. Spoon, mixer, scraper.. it does it all & doesn’t scratch my pots!
My favorite is definitely my cuisinart mixer!!
Probably my KitchenAid stand mixer. I don’t get to use it too often, but I love it when Christmas cookie baking time comes around!
My kitchenaid…could not live without it!
My favorite piece of kitchen equipment is my stand mixer. It’s not a KitchenAid, which I have been dreaming of getting someday (they’re so expensive! …at least for my budget!) but it’s a Sunbeam. It doesn’t have a strong motor so I can only use it for things like whipping up cream or mixing cake batter, but it definitely comes in handy.
My favorite kitchen tool would definitely be Chef’n Veggichop. It’s so easy to cut up onions, peppers, mushrooms, etc… in similar sizes so that everything cookes evenly! It’s fast clean up as well which I especially love!

My favorite kitchen device so far has to be my Ninja food processor/blender. It is so fast and relatively quiet! Love it!
I know it’s a little thing…but I can’t be without my stainless steel whisk! I dream a lot about too many other fun gadgets though! Can you ever have too many kitchen toys?!? I mean TOOLS!!!
Truly, my favorite kitchen device is my KitchenAid Stand Mixer. So many have already said it, but with all the attachments, I use it most days and it makes my job 100x easier!! I love it so much! I also LOVE cast iron! I own a very small skillet that we use while camping, but I want to venture into cooking with them in my kitchen regularly!
my kitchen aid stand mixer!
My Scanpan 12″ skillet. I swear, my boyfriend and I always leave it on the stove with cooked-on leftovers in it while we eat dinner, and even after we finish, all it takes is a quick rinse to get every last bit of food off of it. Miraculous!
I love my stand mixer!!
My favorite Kitchen tool has got to be tie! It’s between the new set of Henckel knives my parents got me and my mini food processor! I don’t use the food processor as often as I should but when I do it makes life so much easier!
I love my immersion blender- so useful!
Not to seem like a suckup, but my cast-iron skillets!

What an amazing giveaway, I have always wanted a cast iron skillet!!! My most beloved piece of kitchen equipment is my Kitchenaid stand mixer!

My favorite is my Kitcheaid mixer. Hoping to get some attachments for Christmas 🙂
My stand mixer definitely gets the most use, but I really like my heavy duty dutch oven.

my kitchen aid mixer is definitely my favorite kitchen item. Though, I would love to have cast iron skillets become my new favorite.
My Kitchen Aid stand mixer. I love it so, so much. Followed by my food processor.
I’d say my coffee maker is my favorite piece of equipment.
My Bosch stand mixer!! <3
But I*ve been eyeing a bunch of Lodge Logic products for a WHILE now!! -=D
My favorite are my pots & pans that are dishwasher safe!
I can’t live without my kitchenaid. It truly does earn it’s permanent spot on the very limited real estate of my kitchen counter and it gets used all the time. And actually, an iron skillet is one of those things that I’ve been meaning to get for ever, but somehow still haven’t. Thank you for the giveaway!

Hi…..for a novice cook, I really rely on my measuring cup when following a recipe!! I don’t have any fancy equipment…..and on Thanksgiving was also really grateful for my lil ole electric hand-mixer (same as I used when I was a little girl)!! Cheers!!
I love my knives!
I love my kitchen aid mixer.
My Kitchen aid stand mixer.
I have 2 small children, so at them moment, my wine glass is my favorite thing in the kitchen. 🙂 other than that, probably my Tupperware mixing bowls. I use at least one of them daily.
It’s hard to narrow it down to one so I’ll narrow it down to two. My KitchenAid Mixer is AH-Mazing. But I also have a crepe pan that has been handed down through my family. I’m the fifth generation to own it.
celee22 at gmail dot com
My favorite implement in the kitchen is my coffee grinder…not only for coffee beans but to grind all my dried herbs from my garden.
The awesome knife set I got for my wedding this summer! Every time I chop anything I’m amazed at how much easier it is than back when I used my crazy-dull old knives.
I love my mini-chopper!
I would love one of these preseasoned skillets! I have one I have had at least 30 years. In our last move my daughter had thrown it out! She obviously doesn’t know the importance-and I retrieved it. It is an heirloom!
My Kitchen Aid Stand Mixer. My food processor is a close second.
My favorite kitchen tool is my skillet… I use it so often that the protective covering is coming off!!
I have to say my kitchenaid mixer
My most beloved set of knives! I use them so often – daily, if we are at home – and cooking is so much more enjoyable when you have good knives.

Love my Kitchen Aid mixer!
I love my slow-cooker! It’s the best kitchen purchase I’ve ever made!
I couldn’t live without my bread knife. I know this because I did live without it for a long time and my husband and I destroyed many a loaf of bread with regular knives. Never again!
Hands down–my hand-held immersion blender. From soups, to sauces, to milkshakes…that baby does it all! 🙂
Its hard to choose! The slow cooker for those days when I don’t have time to cook, but then the food processor is indispensable to make hummus, and I couldn’t live without my big chef’s knife!
My pastry blender!
I am in love with my kitchen-aid mixer. I use it at least once a week and have for years. It was money well spent!
Kitchen aid and some of my knives

Ohhh I’ve been needing some cast iron in my kitchen! My very favorite piece of kitchen equipment would have to be my KitchenAid Stand Mixer.
My cuisinart food processor. I use it for literally everything, from making pie crust to hollandaise. It’s the best!
I love my Kitchenaid food processor. I use that more than I ever thought I would.
I don’t know if a Silpat is considered a kitchen equipment, but it should be considered one because it’s super heavy-duty. I use it to make sticky caramel popcorn, chewy chocolate chip cookies, freeze chocolate decorations, delicate macarons, etc. I can’t live without them anymore!
I love my kitchenaid stand mixer but I too have great childhood memories of Thursday night hamburger and tator totes from a cast iron skillet!

Has to be my whisk!
I love my ceramic knives.
I love my yogurt maker! 🙂
Kitchenaid mixer. I love that thing like it’s one of my children!
I can’t live without my KitchenAid stand mixer. Without it, I’d have to mix our traditional Norwegian cookies, fattigmans, by hand as the dough gets so thick it’s burned out the motors of lesser mixers. The rest of the year, it helps me by beating up perfect egg whites for souffles, slices veggies for salads with one of the attachments, and generally looks good on the kitchen counter where it has pride of place.
Right now? Coffee Maker. I have a newborn. :0 This will get me back in the kitchen.
I’d have to say my most favorite kitchen equipment has to be my Kuerig. I love that machine, use it from morning to night…

Gosh, this is a hard one! It’s a toss up between my KitchenAid Stand Mixer and my Le Creuset Dutch Oven. They’re both beautiful and I use each one for so many things! Ahhhh, I’m going to go with my Le Creuset because I recently used it to make braised beef short ribs and it was the first time I truly felt proud of my cooking skills.
KitchenAid, for sure! Best investment ever 🙂
Absolutely, my KitchenAid artisan mixer. It’s the best gift I’ve ever received!
My green apple Kitchenaid mixer. I have acquired a lot of the attachments so I use it for everything!
My kitchen scale!

It was a gift from my husband David before we got married and he added flame decals to the top of it. If that doesn’t say love, I don’t know what does.
My favorite item is my dutch oven. It’s heavy duty and makes everything so fantastic. Also it works as my fryer, so it’s automatically fantastic with that fact.
my Kenmore handmixer. I’ve had it for years and years now and use it all the time, but it’s showing no sign of slowing down 🙂
My Kitchen-Aid mixer! It’s makes cooking and baking so much easier!
My food processor!
My favorite piece of cookware is my new cobalt blue Staub grill pan. It doesn’t get cold in Texas often, but when it does, this grill pan is perfect for bringing the outdoor grill in. You’re in New England so you’re used to the cold, but down here, we can’t hang!!
Love the blog! Thanks.
My favorite? My knife. The poor thing needs a good sharpening but I use the same knife for everything (bad, I know). I can’t help it. My second favorite, a great spatula. It goes such a long way.
My favorite piece of kitchen equipment is my wooden spoon. I don’t know what it is, but everything seems to taste better when I cook with my wooden spoon!
I love my immersion blender. I never thought I would use it as much as I do! I puree soups, sauces, marinades, etc.. So handy!
Definitely my food processor.
Definitely my Kitchenaid Stand Mixer!
This was a really hard question! Although I love my All-Clad pans, Kitchen Aide, Cuisinart Food processor and Zyliss Garlic Press, I must go with the 6″ Henckels Chef that my husband gave me years ago. I would be lost without it.
My beloved is my Pampered Chef Bar Pan. I use it at least 3 times a week to cook everything from chicken to fish to cookies. It is well seasoned and dark dark brown…just the way I like it! I have lots of other beloveds too since I love to cook but this one is in the top 2-3! 🙂
Love this! My favorite kitchen item is my kitchenaid, I couldn’t live without it!
Picking one is hard, but I would have to say my sharp knife! If I don’t have a sharp one to use, cooking just isn’t any fun!
I love my food processor, whenever I bring it out I am always grateful to have it!
I love my Lodge enameled cast iron dutch ovens. They are good for everything!
I love my Kitchen Aid mixer, without it my life would not be the same. I also love my mini food processor, it saves me so much time. SilPads are another must have item, I could go on and on. 🙂
I just adore my bright red Le Creuset Dutch Oven. Couldn’t live without it!
my husband! i can cook, but he’s the baker… he makes the most wonderful breads and i’m grateful for them and the way they make my house smell on a sunday 🙂
My Kitchenaid! Its like my sous chef! It lets me multi-task in the kitchen. Couldnt live without it!
Definitely my food processor! I’m pretty sure I would be missing fingers by now without it. LOL!

I agree with you that the most beloved piece of kitchen equipment is the skillet. I cook the majority of my meals with a skillet.
I love my Chef’n VeggiChop! It makes cutting up onion,peppers, mushrooms really fast and all the same size. No one likes to eat an omlet or marinara sauce with a huge chunck of onion!
My Kitchen-Aid Mixer would have to be my favorite. It’s the one major fun gadget I have!
I use my garlic press just about every day. Love it!!

I’ve got several favorites, but if I had to choose…my silicon whisk…such a small thing, but oh so important!
My favorite kitchen equipment is my rice cooker. i use it EVERYDAY , several times a day.
First we make oatmeal in it, my son loves it! ITS SO CREAMY AND I PUT PEANUT BUTTER IN IT… SOOOO GOOD. My husband loves rice so i make that almost on a daily basis and i steam all my veggies in it, using the attachment that came with the rice cooker!
Since I’m just starting to build my kitchen and only have the necessities, I would have to say my red rubber spatula! LOL. It was the first item I placed in my kitchen when I moved in two weeks ago 🙂
My cuisinart cooking pots. They were a wedding gift and are downright awesome.
NOT an easy question to answer, it’s like asking which of your kids is your favorite…. I’m going to have to go with my Wustoff knife set, cooking changed drastically when I get REAL knives 🙂
my beloved piece of kitchen equipment would have to be my stove top cast iron grill. It flips to the other side to make a griddle. No need to leave the grilling outside in the colder weather.
Baking is so much quicker (and easier on my wrists!) with a Kitchen Aid mixer!
I love, love, love my KitchenAid mixer!

My kitchenaid mixer or my food processor!

My kitchen aide. I use it all the time, it’s a lifesaver!
My favorite piece of kitchen equipment is probably my cutting board that has little rubber footies at the bottom so that it doesn’t move -at all-. I cook a lot of squash and it is just my savior.
My favorite gadget is my Cuisinart mini-prep. I use it everyday for chopping onions, pureeing food for my little guy, etc. I couldnt live w/out it!
My parents old waffle iron – that after growing up with it for 20 plus years and taking when I moved out only recently noticed you could flip the waffle side over to make a griddle. I haven’t made a waffle since!
Breadmaker is my favorite gadget! However, cast iron skillet brings memories of fried potatoes my mom used to make.
I couldn’t live without my crock pot but cast iron dutch oven is a really close second.
Wooden spoons are my must-have for the kitchen.
I love my food processor. I love making creamy sauces, soups, pureed veggies (to hide in my kids food when I get desperate), and usually gives me 5 min. of alone time because my kids think it is too loud 🙂
This is a tough one, but I think I’ll have to go with the blender since I use it every single day.
Why my kitchenaid mixer of course. I named him Frank! 😉
Love my stoneware baking pan.
Hands down, my cupcake pans.
My beloved piece of kitchen equipment is the electric skillet that my grandfather gave my grandmother as an anniversary present in the 1960’s. When I was a kid, I thought that had to be the worst, most unromantic present in the world. Throughout my childhood, that electric skillet probably saw 2 batches of fried chicken a week, not to mention pancakes and bacon on weekends. After she died, I found a cookie tin full of his letters home to her from the Pacific front in WWII, and somewhere in each of his letters, there is some comment about “I sure do miss your chicken.” Then I came to realize that this was quite possibly the most romantic anniversary present EVER. He was showing her how much he loved and valued something she did well. And now it is my beloved memory, and has pride of place in my kitchen.
My kitchen savvy sister is convincing me that cast iron is the way to go but until I’m completely convinced my favorite piece of kitchen equipment is a surprise to me (as in how much I love it) — my immersion blender! I make all kinds of creamy soups that don’t need cream to make them so because o f this handy dandy appliance. I’m really not much of a gadget person — my kitchen’s too small to store stuff easily. But this baby doesn’t take up much room.
My can’t live without item is definitely my Kitchenaid Mixer! I use it almost every day!
I most certainly cannot live without my Kitchen Aide Mixer! And a couple good knives!
My can’t live without kitchen item is a toss up between my Kitchen Aid Stand Mixer and my food processor. I use them both all the time!
My food processor — it makes so many things so easy!
I could not go a day without my mini chopper. I use it for everything…nuts, onions, herbs and anything else i can throw in there!!!
The one thing I cannot do without is my Kitchen Aid mixer!!! I LOVE to bake as well as cook. I can do anything with that mixer!
My favorite pan is my mother-in-law’s iron skillet (probably about 70 yrs old) which I inherited. I really would love to have one a little bigger. My favorite kitchen equipment is my kitchen aid mixer.
I love my kitchen aid mixer and the ice cream maker attachment for it! 🙂
This may seem silly, but my favorite piece of kitchen equipment is my silpat – it keeps my pans clean from mess, and makes perfect cookies every time. I love it!
I’ve had a Williams-Sonoma bread machine for about 15 years. It shakes while it mixes and sounds like a train, but it still produces gorgeous loaves of my favorite honey whole bread bread every week and I wouldn’t dream of replacing it!
I love my Bosch mixer.
My favorite piece of kitchen wares is a wooden spoon/spatula thing. I have NO CLUE what it’s called, but I love it to pieces.
I also really really love cast iron, and was so so so so happy to hear that you came to the um… dark side?
You can’t have a kitchen without a good knife. Oh, sure, the baker in me wants to list all of the whisks and measuring cups and mixers, but let’s be real. How would we even cut open the boxes to these tools??
It would have to be my Kitchen Aid mixer.
I have to pick *one* favorite!! Wow….well, I guess it’ll have to be my measuring spoon set, no idea the brand but they are easy clean, easy to use!

My most beloved kitchen item is my hand mixer. I also love when someone is in the kitchen to help me. :))

A tiny little frying pan that I stole from my mother 🙂 It’s perfect for making eggs.

I have so many favorite tools, but if i had to pick just 1, it would be my Vita-Mix blender. We used to go to the flower show in chicago in the early 1960″s with my parents. There was a vender booth that sold Vita-mix blenders, and I was always so amazed that he could put whole eggs, shells and all, and strawberries and whatever else he put into it and give us all a tiny taste of the magical elixer that came out of it. It was my favorite part of the show. My mother surprized me in the mid to late 1970″s with an all stainless steel Vita-Mix of my very own. I treasured that mixer for 35 years. It only really had 2 speeds…maim and kill. It still works, but last year I hesitantly purchased a new model. I was so afraid the quality would have gone down, but it is just as wonderful as that first one, and dare I say, an upgrade. I just love it.
I love my KitchenAid!
My Kitchenaid stand mixer (pistachio-colored!) is the best piece of equipment in my kitchen.
