Portable induction cooking, from Kenmore

By Mir
March 28, 2011
Category Contests

Y’all were so excited about last week’s Kenmore food process we thought we’d keep the Kenmore goodness going this week. How’s that sound?

So today you’re going to have a chance to win the Kenmore Elite Portable Induction Cooktop with non-stick frying pan, and this baby is like getting a kitchen remodel without having to, you know, actually remodel your kitchen. Instead of buying yourself a fancy new stove, you can get this convenient extra burner that heats evenly, magically turns itself off when you remove the pan, and does the dishes for you. (Okay, it doesn’t really do the dishes. I made that part up.)

Anyway, the point is that it expands your cooking ability at home, plus you can take it camping or whatever and have a burner wherever you need it. Pretty sweet.

Want to win this bad boy? (It retails for nearly $200!) Of course you do; first go review the contest rules and regulations, then come on back here and leave a comment on this post by 8:00 a.m. Eastern (that’s 5:00 a.m. Pacific) on Thursday, March 31st, 2011 to be entered. Winner to be determined by random number generation and ability to heat evenly. (That… sounded a little dirtier than I meant it to. But only a little.)

Ready? Go!

  234. Count me in!

  235. I would loooooove this!

  236. I feel like I am always in need of another burner!

  237. I would love to win this baby!

  238. Very neat. I would love it!

  242. I can EAT evenly…does that count?

  243. sounds neat!

  244. Wow!

  245. Well, I DO expect that whole hot-flash thing to start happening for me soon, I guess I’d be heating up then! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  246. Pretty cool!

  247. My husband has been trying to convince me to replace the electric cooktop with an induction one (I’ve been asking for a gas one), so this would be a great way to try induction out!

  248. This looks great!!

  249. That would be great for the office kitchen!

  250. Super Fresh to Death!

  251. Nice! Thankk you!!

  252. This sounds fabulous!

  253. I want one! The first thing I thought of was cooking bacon outside… no bacon-y smell in the house, but still the yummy goodness.

  254. I am not sure what you would use this for, unless you were camping. Though if you brought it camping then you miss out on the charbroiled scrambled eggs that taste like smoke. Or possibly if I won this I could cook in the basement while I forced my husband into remodeling the kitchen. Oh, I like that idea.

    If I was to win, I would have some serious decisions to make.

    Thanks Mir!

  255. Dad can grill; I can saute on this!

  256. Yes please! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  264. Maybe I would actually agree to go camping if I had this little hottie. Thanks!

  265. Awesome! Can I have the model that cleans itself? Please? ๐Ÿ™‚

  266. I want to win that bad boy! And I promise NOT to take him camping – only use him in the comfort of my very own home.

  267. I could really really use this!!

  268. me! me! of course then I’d have to cook. oh well, me! me! anyway.

  269. oh my..it looks perfect for camping. Pretty please pick me oh number generator!

  270. Oh yes the ability to heat evenly. I am in need of that ability. And of course the extra handy dandy burner. Please.

  296. Two minutes ago, I had no idea such a thing existed. And now I want one desperately. It would be great for those times when I have more than one cook in the kitchen, not to mention what an improvement it would be over my Coleman camp stove!

  317. oooh i’d LOVE this! always wanted one, never wanted to spend the $$ ๐Ÿ™‚

  318. I have always wanted an induction oven, and could not afford it,so to have this would be super cool!
