Big Kitchen-Big Giveaway!

I had the great opportunity to partner together with Big Kitchen.com on a review of one of their great items. Then I was lucky enough to receive this in the mail: 

That's when I got super excited.  I saw Emeril's face sticking through the plastic.



The opposite side even doubles as a griddle!

The cast iron griddle distributes heat evenly and retains seasonings for an even better taste with every use.  It is endorsed by Emeril himself!   The matte enamel coating resists flavor absorption and requires no seasoning.

It is great for preparing foods such as meats and vegetables, as if using an outdoor grill. you can easily make food with those authentic grill marks.   The grill pan is a great size 20" l x 10-1/2" w x 1" h and has large handles making it easier to use.  It is also heavy and very well made.  Not to mention it comes with a LIFETIME warranty.  I don't know if I'll even be lighting our outdoor grill this year.  This is makes grilling too easy!  : )


It simply lays across two burners on your stove.


I have yet to use the griddle side but can just imagine myself making blueberry pancakes
from our fresh blueberries.

I greased the pan lightly with vegetable oil and also gave it a little spray of Pam.


Next, I went to work with my Teryiaki marinated chicken breasts
for one of my favorite outdoor grilled meals.

 
The grill pan cooked the chicken to perfection without using charcoal, gas or being outside in the bugs.


When the chicken was finished I added some pineapples that I soaked in soy sauce. The whole meal turned out perfect.

 
Needless to say we cleaned our plates.

Next, I decided to try out grilling some deer steak which tend to be a little on the dry side and typically have to be buttered during outdoor grilling.  I must say..I did not use any butter.  I simply marinated them in some Lawry's Steak Marinade and put those suckers on the pan.  They turned out to be some of the most tender, delicious deer (sorry, venison) steaks I had ever eaten.   I'm loving this grill pan. Way to go Emeril!

The wonderful folks over at Big Kitchen are sponsoring a giveaway for one of you all to try an Emeril Griddle Pan in your home!  Big Kitchen has a gigantic selection of products, top of the line brand names, and great prices. Please check out their website at http://www.bigkitchen.com/ and tell me which of their products you would like to try.

I need a couple of casserole dishes, and thought the CORELLE SIMPLE LINES WHITE STONEWARE 2 PIECE CASSEROLE SET was reasonably priced and something I could get a lot of use out of as well.
