all clad 2-quart sauce pan

Giveaway: All-Clad Sauce Pan Giveaway

Guess what?!  I’m giving away a 2-Quart Saucepan from All-Clad.  This sized saucepan probably wins the “most used pot” award in my kitchen.  I use it for everything from Chai and Hot Chocolate to Butternut Squash Soup and Cranberry Sauce –it gets a lot of play around here and I love having it in my kitchen.
Given that this pot retails for $150 I’m utterly grateful that I received one of my own for my wedding, which was 15 years ago today. That’s right, my husband and I were married December 16th, 1995, though we’ve actually been together for about 20 years.  That’s a long time and I’m so thankful to have my him in my life.

We received most of an entire set of All-Clad pots and pans for our wedding and I have of course put them to very good use.  As you can see from the length of time I’ve been married, these pots really last.  And I can tell you that they wear quite well.

To enter this contest just leave a comment describing what type of soup or beverage you would make if you won this amazing piece from All-Clad. This giveaway is open to everyone, everywhere and I will pick the winner at random. This contest will end at 6pm on December 21st, 2010.

OK, now let’s get down to some other exciting stuff.  The giveaways for the DIY Foot Balm, 10lbs of Dagoba Chocolate and the Benefit You Life starter kit of ingredients all ended yesterday and I’m going to announce all 3 winners now: Ada won the Vanilla Peppermint Foot Balm and Elana’s Pantry bag, Jen K won the 10 pounds of Dagoba Chocodrops and Hallie won the Elana’s Pantry ingredient starter kit from Benefit Your Life! Congratulations everyone!

I wanted to mention that Hannah over at Hannah’s Harvest has posted a great interview she did with me recently as a part of her series of women living in their joy and guided by their passions. So, head on over and take a peek at the interview and be sure to check out her recipes!  Also, my fabulous friend Silvana is giving away a copy of The Gluten-Free Almond Flour Cookbook on her website, Dish Towel Diaries.  All you have to do is leave a comment over there to be entered to win my book.

‘Tis the season for giveaways!

UPDATE: This giveaway is now over. The winner of the All-Clad Sauce Pan Giveaway was Anna. Thanks to everyone who participated!


  1. Shirley K says

    I love Tomato Basil Soup – the simple one or the creamy one – both of them hits the spot ! oh yummmmmyyyy !!!

  2. Cathryn says

    I realize this giveaway is over, but I just had to commment to tell you that my husband and I share the same anniversary! Although, it’s been a litttle longer—we were married in 1978!! Happy belated Avviversary to you!

  3. Allison Jacob says

    Wow, so much delightful yumminess can be cooked in this pot. I can imagine homemade miso soup, or some great tomato soup. Oooh how delightful

  4. Lori Chartrand says


    I love to cook and am new to gluten free cooking. I need new pots badly…and All-Clad is excellent. I would use this pot a lot! My family loves soup. I would prbably make turkey soup first with my leftover turkey from Christmas. Then I would love another comfort soup like roasted pumpkin and ginger soup. Next, it would like to try a healthy version of hot chocolate.

    Thanks for the opportunity. Your site has been very helpful on my recent journey of gluten-free, sugar-free cooking.


  5. Debbie Pettigrew says

    would love to win……I make a lot of chicken soup and also hot chocolate on cold winter nights.

  6. erica says

    We love the 2 AlClad pans we have already. Would love to make hot cocoa for my kids with almond milk & real cocoa to warm them up on cold days. Would also be great for soups, hot oatmeal, melting butter & so much more. Thanks for a sharing a wonderful product! Happy-happy!!

  7. says

    I would make a very simple chicken and rice soup. I would first saute carrots, celery, onions and garlic in the bottom of the pot. Then I’d add the broth and some dried herbs (plus salt & pepper to taste) and let it simmer for a couple of hours on the stove. Toward the end I would add brown rice. I know people might think this is boring but it’s such a comfort to eat chicken soup when it’s soooo cold outside.

    Happy holidays everyone!

  8. says

    what a great looking pot! i would probably make a hearty pumpkin chowder or persian stew in the pot- i just started making beverages in pots so this would help me along!

  9. Rebecca Cook says

    I would make an amazing rice pudding recipe given to me years ago by a friend who had recently returned from Norway. Actually, it’s called something other than plain old “rice pudding” but since I’ve never been able to pronounce it in Norwegian, rice pudding it is and shall remain. A mixture of rice, sugar, cream and grated cinnamon slow cooks on the stove, filling your home with the tantalizing aroma of wonderful things to come. To achieve perfection takes a really good pan (here’s where the All Clad pan comes in) and lots of careful tending, but the end result is soooooo worth it.

  10. sellbywire says

    Hi Elana,
    Your recipes are scrumptious! I look forward everyday for your new, exciting, delicious recipes! If I would win this magnificent pot I would make some good old hot cocoa.

  11. Laura Vroman says

    Thank you for your generous giveaway! Creamy fennel or salmon chowder sound delicious at the moment. I also would try my father’s pralines – his specialty during the holiday season.

  12. Meredith says

    I make lots of soups and chowders for my 9 month old son (its just as good as baby food and he likes the texture better!) His favorites are baked potatoe soup and sweet potato and lentil “chili” – both are great for the cold weather!

  13. Heidi says

    I’m starting to make smaller batches of soup because not all soups freeze well and soups are such a mainstay in our diet. The next soup I would make is a Roasted Red Pepper soup with mild italian sausage. I like to saute the sausage with whatever onions my husband brings home from work–usually shallots or cipollini–and then add them after I’ve blended the veggies, red peppers, and coconut milk. We all like it so I’ll keep making it for as long as our red peppers hold out.


  14. Stacy says

    Awesome! I think that I would make some tomato soup with this pan. It is my favorite winter soup! Thanks for the chance to win it!

  15. says

    Horray for cooking!!
    I would make baked potato soup in this pan. One of my go-to favorites.
    Thanks for the chance to win something so awesome!!

  16. Anna says

    Hmm.. I love a wintry mushroom soup — broth based with tomato paste and thyme with chunks and slices of wild mushrooms. So tasty! Thanks for offering the giveaway!

  17. Patti says

    I would make my beef shank and vegetable soup; a family favorite. The beef shanks simmer until tender and then I add a variety of vegetables and spices. It gives the house has a great aroma when you enter on a cold winter day.

  18. Alina Rios says

    A slow bubbling hot chocolate with a pinch of anise and then a Cashew Barfi, my favorite Indian dessert with an unfortunate name…

  19. maria farquharson says

    What I will do if I get this pot? I love cooking. For me cooking is doing things for other that are nourishing and appetizing. I will prepare cream soups and also make yogourt. I will make hot cereals in winter mornings and will use it for melting the wet ingredients of granola. We eat rice often, so I will use this pot to make rice, either basmati or whole grain rice. I will use also to cook the giblets and neck to prepare the stuffing for the turkey. I can almost smell it! Merry Christmas!

  20. Becky Randles says

    I would love to make a butternut squash soup in this new pan. I am new at this type of cooking but I am trying to learn fast!

  21. Kerry Roberts says

    I would make my favorite soup, the smoked paprika and yellow split pea soup from your website, love the recepies, keep them coming.

  22. Daphne says

    Dear Elana,

    I’m a constant visitor to your intriguing website and have tried quite a number of your recipes and, in fact, have a whole binder of them! However, if I were to win this All-Clad pot I would definitely use it to make cranberry sauce as well as some good homemade chicken soup. I like to keep cranberry sauce in the fridge as we love to have chicken quite regularly.

  23. Susan says

    If I won this sauce pan, I would request that my daughter make one of my favorites, her delicious roasted tomato soup!

  24. Lenee says

    Wow, this is very nice! I would make homemade chicken noodle soup in this pan. I would also make homemade macaroni and cheese in it. Which is one of my family’s favorite side dishes!!!

  25. Paige G. says

    mmm. without a doubt i’d make hot chocolate first, then english toffee, since it’s christmas time!

  26. Kyle says

    White Bean chili. I’m working on a healthy version that uses very little salt and organic chicken. It’s my favorite soup!

  27. Sharon Gilbert says

    Curried Mungbean soup with potatoes, carrots, and greens, seasoned with chipotle chile powder for a smoky flavor would cook beautifully in that lovely pot.

  28. Paula Gerhart says

    Soups of any kind are definitely a FAVORITE in this household. Anything from butternut squash to matzoh ball are always a hit. I also make a lot of gravys. This pan would be AMAZING for that! :)

  29. Amie says

    I would love to try making a thai coconut soup! I have some pots passed down from my grandma so it would be absoutly wonderful to try cooking in a new pot.
    Thank you

  30. Norma Heckendorf says

    Hi Elana-

    I am so hooked on your website. I visit it at least once each day. I am anxious to make your matzoh ball soup recipe. It seems like the perfect comfort-food soup for a chilly winter day. The next soup recipe on my list to try is your chicken ‘noodle’ soup.

    With the holiday season upon us, I have been busy trying out your cupcake and candy recipes, but soon I will be cooking up a storm, instead of this baking frenzy I am in!

    Thank you for sharing your fantastic recipes.


  31. Marcy Buchanan says

    What an awesome giveaway!!! Oh how I would love some All-Clad cookware! This piece would definitley be put to good use! I’m thinking hot apple cider, ginger and orange tea, chocolate sauce, vegetable soup, lentil soup, chicken curry and the list could goes on….. Promising to use it often!! Thank you Elana for your wonderful recipes and giveaways!!

    PS…. My friend and I enjoyed making and decorating cookies from your cookbook with our children last week. We couldn’t stop eating the raw cookie dough. It was fabulous!

  32. shaindy says

    Best wishes to you! I would definitely start using it for Shabos – maybe chicken soup, or chulent or compote. Can’t wait!

  33. Lindsey Quanrud says

    I would love to use that pot for a heartwarming butternut squash soup with nutmeg creme fraiche (scd approved) on top. My family has celiac disease and we are also on the Specific Carbohydrate Diet, so squash has become a big favorite in my house.

    Good luck to everyone entering! I have always dreamed of owning all-clad items and whoever wins will be one lucky cook!

  34. Roberta Karpinski says

    All of these suggestions are making me quite hungry!

    I would use this pot to make my favorite Indian-spiced Chicken and Spinach – truly a delicious treat. I make it about every six weeks, and freeze it for quick meals, either lunch at work or dinner when I get home. Very, very yummy – and easy!

  35. Jackie Wamhoff says

    I’d probably use it to make sauces since it’s the perfect size for that. Thanks for the chance to win!

  36. says

    I would probably use it for scores of different sauces and beverages, but most often to reduce pan juices, make chutneys and jams, and chai.

  37. Olinda Paul says

    I would love to make all my favorite soups in this wonderful pot. I love making my coconut butternut squash soup. It’s so creamy. It started out as acorn squash soup but I kept changing it around. My pots are showing their age and I am ready for something new. Oh, and candy of course. Chocolate to be exact.

  38. alisa joy says

    it’s a rainy december here in portland, oregon. which means that i’m craving tom kah soup. sooooo good!

  39. says

    Mmmmm. Definitely would start with a Thai Thom Kha soup – coconut milk, galanga root, lemongrass, kafir lime leaves, fish sauce, fresh basil, mushrooms, broccoli, onions, chicken, and a little red chili. Perfect all-purpose soup from an all-clad-all-purpose pot.

  40. Wendy I says

    I would many many things, but first I have been wanting to make Candied limes stuffed with coconut! I love coconut, yum….

  41. Maria Duarte-Shurbet says

    Hi Elana

    First I would like to thank you for your website and your book, I had to change my diet because of my Lupus. And I thought I was never again going to be able to have breads and desserts again. With your book, only had about 2 weeks, my hubby has made biscuits, jelly filled muffins, whoopie pies twice, and tonight I am trying the lemon bars. So far everything has been excellent.

    If I won the saucepan, I would start out making my favorite hot drink, organic hot chocolate sweetened with agave….love it….I love soups, so a Broccoli Cheese Soup, that we are still trying to perfect, using arrowroot powder to thicken, any other suggestions? Also love to make Chicken Tortillaless Soup, Chicken Chili, Tomato Soup, Butternut Squash, and I would love to find a gluten-free Steak Soup recipe. Too many soups to mention.

    Thanks again, you have inspired both my hubby and I. And thanks for the great giveaway.

  42. Laura Isabella says

    I would use it to make my favorite warming winter drink:
    Spiced Coconut milk with fresh ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, star anise, cloves and tumeric.

  43. Liz says

    I just burned oatmeal solidly to the bottom of my sauce pan. This pan would be lots more fun than scrubbing for an hour!

  44. Kaitlyn says

    I try to make a pot of nourishing soup each week, and this 2-qt. all-clad pot would be a useful and much-used tool!

  45. Tandy says

    I think I would probably have to make my black bean and rice soup with chorizo. Perfect for these cold winter days.

  46. MoniCue says

    First thing would be spiced apple cider–I’ve frozen a fresh gallon to warm with spices for New Year’s Eve.

  47. Ann Davenport says

    I would use my All-Clad Sauce Pan for making soup, boiling eggs, making hot cocoa and all other non-gluten food for my family.
    Thank you.

  48. Christy says

    The pot looks perfect for my indian spiced tomato lentil soup with curry!

    Thanks and Happy healthy New year!!

  49. says

    Hi Elana,
    Count me in! Just saw one of these at a Holiday party last night and thought how awesome it would be to have one! Then came to your site to make cookies for another Holiday cookie exchange party this afternoon and waa- la! Funny. Have been enjoying your recipes and thinking of you all often. I mention your website and book often and am so happy to know so many people follow you in Boulder.
    Much love to you and your family!

  50. Shari F. says

    I would make your Butternut Squash soup – it’s one of our favorites too. Thanks for giving us the opportunity to win these fabulous prizes, Elana.

  51. Randy Wong says

    First – After reading more about what microwaves can do to our food, I am looking for good cookware that I can safely reheat our food in … this would fit the criteria!
    Second – learning to create more soups is on tap for 2011. A vegetable soup after a trip to the farmer’s market would be my first choice!

  52. Margot says

    Soups are a must for gluten free living. My kids love clam chowder and I am making that often lately. What a blessing a new pot would be as my current ‘soup pot’ has seen better days.

  53. Carolyn says

    right now i would love some roasted root vegetable soup.

    then tomorrow- i would probably make some miso soup.

    and the day after- potato leek.

    cranberry sauce on thursday.

    this pan will be used everyday. :)

  54. Julie says

    I would love to experiment and try making something new! Such as a pot roast. I have never actually tried one before (I am 19 and my mother never cooked american food around the house) so it would be nice to start making it on my own as well as introducing a nice, hearty traditional american dish to my family!

  55. Gluten free friend says

    I would make leek and potato soup. Every year I managed to grow enough leeks for one batch of soup and I look forward to it every fall!

  56. karen says

    This year we have had more snow than the past 10 years. That pot would definately get a welcome introduction to wonton soup, a soup I just learned how to make from a Chinese friend. I am 57 and always trying new recipes. Before long a perfect marriage would occur with wedding soup. The wedding soup recipe is on old recipe from an Italian woman who lived in the North End, Boston. I can smell it cooking now. No pot would be complete without an old favorite, stone soup. Originally, I heard the story Stone Soup on Captain Kangaroo when I was 5. At my request, Mom made stone soup quite often. Each time the soup may vary a little depending on what was in the pantry. Of course no soup would taste better than the stone soup my Mom would make. As you may gather, my pot is wearing thin. A new one would enable me to continue stirring memories for all.
    Cold in Ohio, Karen (Love you website.)

  57. cthulhulovesme says

    I’d use this pot to make a delicious veggie-heavy pasta sauce, loaded with onions, garlic, mushrooms, tomatoes, peppers, and spinach. I’m a college student, so I try to combine tasty and healthy with economical; pasta sauce is a great way to do just that.

  58. Cristina says

    I would use this pot to make butternut squash soup with sauteed leeks and mushrooms, veggie chili, and my usual pot of quinoa (preferably red) which I make once a week and mix with roasted veggies (like kale and brussel sprouts), chickpeas, and walnuts to have on hand for dinner during busy college week nights.

  59. Crystal says

    what a great giveaway! I would make mulled cider and coconut milk hot chocolate. Two of my favorite winter time drinks!

  60. says

    I will definitely cook a chunky pumpkin soup when I get the chance to win this gorgeous pan. Our gift limit this year is 20 and this would be an added bonus! :)

  61. Krista Loercher says


    Since we are getting close to the new year, my mind keeps thinking of black-eyed peas, which are a tradional new years food. With that in mind, I think the all-clad pan is just crying out for some hopping’ john. Onions, peppers, tomatoes, corn and black-eyed peas…yum! My favorite way to serve it is with some sauteed greens – broccoli rabe is my favorite – and some polenta.

    Happy new year!

  62. says

    I’d make my mother’s old fashioned Indian spiced chai tea! I make it sometimes in my beat up pans, but I bet it would taste better out of something nice and new!

  63. Kate C. says

    If I win the All Clad pan, I’ll be putting it to use on pot after pot of butternut-squash soup. Hurrah!

  64. Lonna Jordan says

    If I owned this beautiful pan I would, first, hide it from my 18-month-old grandson so that he would not put it on his head or beat it like a drum. Then I would go out to my garden and pick a head of broccoli and make a creamy luscious broccoli soup. The next day I would need it again to warm up any leftovers.

    A hopeful owner,
    Lonna Jordan

  65. Amy H says

    With this pot…I would start with spicy squash soup. Now that that weather is cold, I’ve been craving this soup which always manages to be one of my favorite cold comfort foods.

    Ingredients Include:
    Acorn squash (or other sweet type)
    Coconut milk
    Marsala or other “warm” spice
    Sea salt
    Small amount of Agave only if needed
    Few walnuts for on top garnish
    Dolup of yogurt to balance spice

  66. Roger J says

    It’s time to prepare for Christmas dinner. Flourless chocolate cake is one of our favorite gluten-free sweets. This pan should be great for protecting the delicate flavor of dark chocolate.

  67. Renee says

    What would I do with a beautiful pot like this? I’d make endless amounts of delicious food for my soon-to-be husband and myself. We have a deep love of cooking that began when we met in 7th grade. From roasted tomato soup, lentil and chorizo soup, to rustic Italian ribollita and vegetarian 5 bean chili. I’m sure this pot will be a part of our many family meals to come as we start our new life together, and as two graduate students on a low budget who refuse to sacrifice eating healthy, this pot will be the first nice pot to add to our humble kitchen.

  68. Jessica says

    I will love to try out some Chai recipes in the pan! I am so glad to have found this site, i will probably want to use it for everything!

  69. Helen Holden says

    What a perfect pot to make potato-butternut squash soup in! A delicious, soothing soup for a cold winter night!

  70. Emily says

    If I had a pot like this I would make sweet sticky rice with coconut milk to eat with fresh mangos and sesame seeds!

  71. Jami says

    I’m always making soup….my family just loves it! I would be very excited to make M’jaddra (a delicious Lebanese lentil and rice dish) in this most amazing pan!

  72. Jenna says

    It would be a crazy toss-up on what I would make with that sauce pan.. a nice homemade spaghetti sauce would possibly be my first choice – as my boyfriend is Italian and I always want to cook him up something that is warm, inviting and reminiscent of his heritage.

  73. Virginia Linnell says

    I would make a potato leek soup that is so comforting and satisfying!Great to chase away the winter chills.

  74. olivia says

    we have a lot apple trees in our yard so we are always making homemade applesauce and cider. I know that this pot will come in handy, not only for our apple recipes but for a multitude of sauces and soups!

  75. ari says

    i would make a pre-bedtime drink of almond milk with cardamom, ghee, and honey. puts me right to sleep!

  76. Laura Paine says

    Dear Elana – my family and I love soup and have several favorites. The one we are loving most these days is a coconut curry soup – it has fresh ginger, lemon grass, cilantro, garlic, coconut milk, curry paste, fish sauce and one cup of shallot. We serve it over brown rice pad thai noodles.

  77. Katie A says

    Oh I definitely would make hot chocolate for my family in this pot. Milk, cocoa, sugar, vanilla and cinnamon. Yum!

  78. Jan says

    I would love to own this Pan..I would make chicken noodle soup, and add stewed tomatoes at the very end, jsut like my Mom did.

  79. Danielle F says

    I would make a luxuriously decadent Cannelini Bean Soup with Truffle Oil. YUM!

    Thanks for a great giveaway!

  80. Wendy Flood says

    I would make my “Chicken Soup for the Soul” recipe. How exciting. Thanks for this fun offer to have a chance to win.

  81. PinkLadyApple says

    I would love to use this pot for my wonderful soups that I have started making this winter.
    For the last several years I was a raw vegan and started experiencing issues of depletion eating this way. Recently I started following a more paleo type diet and have included some meats into my diet.
    I would love to make a paleo style beef burgundy stew in this pot. It would warm my heart to win it and warm the tummies of my family ;-)

    thank you

  82. Kathryn Olney says

    Pumpkin and stuffing soup. Something I invented after Thanksgiving but too good not to make throughout the winter!

  83. De West says

    First of all, I am making 5 of your cookie recipes for this holiday season!
    I made the lemon lavender cookies today, they are amazing. I made the kale with cranberries for Thanksgiving. Thank you so much for all that you do!

    I would make yummy soups using root veggies and leafy greens!

    Huge Love,

  84. Sandy Austin says

    I would look forward to making my grandmother’s chowder in this lovely pan. It would have a favorite spot during all holiday football games.
    Sandy in CO.

  85. beth says

    I am not sure what I would make… because I am new to cooking but I am sure I would do tons of different experiments and hopefully most would come out delicious

  86. says

    I’d make curries. And cranberry sauce (for cranberry bars). And cream of buckwheat cereal. Oh wow… I’d use this ALL THE TIME. (hint. hint. hint.)

  87. Joanne says

    What a great give away! I’d make my favorite hearty winter soup with chicken, butternut squash, bok choy, dill and escarole. I can almost smell it now …

  88. Bethany C says

    I just learned about the health benefits of stainless steel cookware this past summer. I researched different kinds of cookware and only found All-Clad to be made in America. I would make my usual stock from pastured chickens in it to help heal my tumuluous tummy. I plan on slowly switching over time from my aluminum cookware to All-Clad.

  89. Gayla says


    Talia (my four-year-old daughter) and I would once again make Spicy Crab and Coconut soup with shallots, lime, lemongrass, ginger, cilantro, green chilies, and of course, crab and coconut milk. The pot you are offering would be the perfect vessel in which to simmer this lovely soup.

    Happy Anniversary to you and your husband.
    Season’s greetings to all.


  90. aziza says

    I would like to make split pea soup with paprika , it’s my favorite especially in this winter.

    Thank you so much for everything you do.

  91. Abrahamildi says

    Wow, I would love to win this sauce pan :)
    First of all I would make onion soup in it for my boyfriend with some cheese ’cause he loves it so much!
    Thx for all this give-away, this is really generous of you!

  92. Eileen says

    Man…what a tough choice…what I would make in their first. I love soups so probably some yummy, hot, chicken and rice soup. Or maybe a vegetable? You’re making me hungry thinking about the possibilities

  93. says

    I would make either butternut squash soup or your the tea for your mock Thai iced tea. It’s so good!

    And Happy Anniversary! Thanks for including us. :)

  94. Erin Hannah says

    I would be stumped where to begin! Seeing its the holidays, some mulled wine sounds fitting and then turkey soup!

  95. Becca says

    My sister’s veggie soups – roasted red pepper or carrot coriander. Just the thing for these cold winter evenings!

  96. Sue A says

    I would make a big pot of vegetarian minestrone soup with lots of fresh veggies and topped with a dab of pesto to enjoy on a cold blustery winter day! Nothing like warm homemade soup to warm you up!

  97. Danielle Miles says

    What wouldn’t I make with this pan! Perfect for everything from spinach soup to hot chocolate. Please pick me!!!!!!!! Sorry I sound like Donkey from Shrek. ( I have little ones.)

  98. Erin says

    Wow! so cool…I imagine making a creamy sweet potato soup without the cream…just a bit of almond milk to make it rich!

  99. Kathy Warren says

    I would make yummy pumpkin soup with cranberry relish! It is my new favorite soup recipe and so delcious! :o)

  100. says

    I would use this saucepan to make a soup. Sweet Squash, Parsnip,Carrot, Onion, Turnip maybe a small rutabaga. Then add tumeric, ginger minced, thyme. Maybe even a bit of saffron.Probably add a kick of cayenne pepper and then either cream or milk to tone it down if its too feisty. I love winter soups because the heat from the herbs and spices are good tasty nutrition during the cold and flu season.

  101. Laura Villanueva says

    I would use this especially for making my gluten free chicken rice soup. I especially love making soups and stews in the winter time and this saves me money when I make soups from scratch.

  102. Connie says

    I’d make apple cider with cinnamon! My favorite this time of year, and it make the house smell great!

  103. Tania says

    Honestly, I would give the pan to my mother. She deserves a wonderful new pan after having used the same old pots for the past 40 years (she claims she doesn’t need new ones). I’d use it, too, for my weekly batch of Great Northern bean soup, rich with sauteed onions, celery and sometimes carrot coins, and don’t forget the herbs de provence and a splash of balsamic vinegar! On wintry nights, I’d make hot carob drink with almond milk, agave nectar and a touch of cinnamon (like hot chocolate, but with carob). Thanks for the giveaway, and congrats in advance to whoever wins.

  104. Eliza J says

    I would have to say…..chili! I have a great recipe I found about 20 years ago, it’s still better than ones I have found in recent years.

  105. Jay Dee says

    I have a friend who has this pan! I have heard they are aweome. It would be great to cook your chicken noodle soup in this pan!

  106. Rose says

    I would love to make cowboy stew in this pot for my little boy who has just started the SCD diet. It’s a challenging diet but the food is delicious– and this pot would help!

  107. Stacey Harding says

    I lovet to make soup, especially whith left over turkey and chicken! Even vege soup is great during the cold winter time :P

  108. Denice says

    I would love to put the saucepan to good use to make a pot of celeriac and cauliflower soup. I modify the Creamy Celeriac Soup from Farmer John’s cookbook, The Real Dirt on Vegetables: Seasonal Recipes and Stories from a Community Supported Farm, to be vegetarian and dairy free. A drizzle of white truffle oil sends it over the top.

  109. Laurel says

    As you say, what wouldn’t you cook in this pan? It’s my favorite size. I think the first thing this winter would be spinach, garlic and ginger soup. It’s one of my favorites. Put in whatever spices you like. Then carefully blend with or without a milk alternative. It is so easy and it’s wonderful if I do say so myself. BTW I hope you’ve got one of those random number generators for this contest, whew. Happy holidays and thanks for giving so much to so many.

  110. wendy says

    yummy black bean soup. the pot looks great i would also use it to make a gluten free boiled fruit cake.

  111. Mary Blackmon says

    I love the size of this pot. I had a pot this size when my boys were young and I used it for so many things. Now that they are grown and still at home I would love to have this to make a tomato soup that we all really like and I’d like to make the butternut squash soup that you make. I have really enjoyed your site snce finding it through Jordan Ruben’s site.
    Thank you for all the gluten free recipes. I have one son that has to eat gluten free and we all work at eating less gluten but it has been hard to find recipes for gluten free eating until yours!

  112. junglewoman says

    I would use this pot to make Hot Spiced Apple Cider, to warm us up after a hike in the woods! Thanks!

  113. Sara McMinn says

    My dear 8 year old daughter has been wonderful in helping me discover new ways to make the things we love gluten, corn, dairy and rice free. Recently we perfected a hot apple cider she really loves so that would probably be one of the first things we made in a new pot! Then there would be all the stock making for the various soups we eat. Icing for all the winter birthday cakes we will be making, her 9th , my 40th and both Grandparents 90th! We would put it to good use!

  114. susan ellison says

    I LOVE ALL CLAD pans. With this wonderful pan, I would make organic chicken wild rice soup with all the organic vegetables like zuchini, carrots, onions, celery, and shitake mushrooms.

  115. Denny Sirotta says

    I would love to make barley soup in the All-Clad sauce pan and/or give it to my daughter who turned me on to this site. I should give it to her !!!

  116. Kaila says

    I would make mujaddara, which is an aromatic rice/brown lentil dish that you top with caramelized onions and yoghurt. Yum!

  117. Cindy Nakamaru says

    First of all, I love your site. I visit it often and I’m going to attempt to make your Christmas chocolate bark for family christmas presents this year.
    For the giveway question, I would LOVE to make Cauliflower White Cheddar soup in my new All-clad sauce pan. I have never owned anything as nice as this. Thank you for the opportunity to win.
    Happy Holidays!!
    Cindy Nakamaru

  118. Anna Marie J says

    The smell of mulling spices during the holidays always makes me feel the season so . . . hot mulled cranberry cider with honey

  119. Amy says

    I LOVE all-clad, but only have a small crepe pan. I would make lots of things, but one recipe that we repeat a lot is Chicken and Wild Rice Soup — all five of my kids love it!

  120. says

    This time of year, Chai sounds wonderful… here’s what I do: mix half almond milk and half water with Celestial Seasoning’s India Spice Chai Decaf Tea or any other Chai tea of your choice (about 1 tea bag per 8 ounces of liquid.) Heat over low heat until desired strength and IF you need to sweeten it, I use coconut nectar crystals. You can always make chai from scratch (black tea with cinnamon, cloves, cardamom, ginger, nutmeg, black pepper and star anise). Elana also has a recipe here:

  121. Saskia says

    Elana, the answer would have to be my yummy non dairy cheezy cheddar sauce. I love nthat I can enjoy “cheese” in my own GF CF SF EF way!

  122. Nancy says

    I’ve been making a hot drink with homemade coconut milk from your recipe and homemade nut milk with green cardamom pods and vanilla and cinnamon. It’s delicious. I would make that in the all-clad pot.

  123. Corinne says

    I would love, love, love to win this pot! So nice!
    We just introduced chocolate back into our diet and I would love to start making hot chocolate for my kids. They ask for it every year and there really is no substitute. Now that we’ve added chocolate back I can finally make it!

  124. says

    Hi Elana, I am so grateful for your recipes, website, and cookbook(s)! I’ve been interested for a while in the benefits of a reduced gluten diet and love the additional low carb bonus of using almond flour. If I won your pan, I would use it for tons of stuff! Probably this time of year I would whip up some cider, and take a crack at making some pumpkin soup from my surplus of sugar pumpkins out of the garden. (I am making pumpkin ice cream today from freshly made pumpkin puree) Go Colorado! We live in Severance, whichi is near Windsor.

  125. Melissa Rottenberg says

    Wow! What a wonderful give-a-way! It would make a nice addition to the other 2 pots that currently make up my pot collection. You see, we have been slowly remodeling our house. We are a young couple and my other half does home renovations for a living. Although his profession is a wonderful way to save money on renovations, it means that there is little time to work on our home. We started the complete renovation (all interior walls and ceilings) down 5 years ago and even lived in the detached garage for over a year and a half where I cooked everything in a toaster oven and on a plug-in single burner in one pot and a cast iron skillet (and washed in an outdoor kitchen)! Minimalistic is the key word for sure! Moving into the house was a huge step for us! Imagine how exciting it was to use a sink, dishwasher, and stove for the first time in our partial kitchen! We now have most of the kitchen complete, minus counter tops (other than plywood) and usable cabinets. The end of the partial kitchen grows nearer and nearer and I am hopeful it will be soon.

    Hmmmm…what beverage would I make in this wonderful pot? I think I’d make some (dairy and gluten free) hot chocolate complete with a touch of salt and cayenne pepper!

  126. Marisa H says

    If I won this pot, I would make a delicious cinnamon-free cardamom chai, since I am allergic and have to make my own!

  127. Jennifer Stephenson says

    I would definitely make gluten-free tomato basil soup! My family of four boys love it and sometimes, when I’m really adventurous, I toss in some artichoke hearts.

  128. Gina Cannon says

    I would make what my Gram called “Kitchen Sink” soup. In this economy, it’s our last-day-of-the-week dinner before I go grocery shopping. First (earlier in the week) I would have taken all the leftover chicken from my Sunday Roast Chicken Dinner and cooked the carcass in the Soup Pot (covered with water) to make really good chicken stock. Then I freeze it for later use. So, in making “Kitchen Sink” Soup, I take the chicken stock and bring to simmer. I also take any/all leftover veggies from the week and chop then saute in real butter until lightly cooked and slightly browned. Add to Soup pot. Take any/all poultry leftovers, chop, put in Soup Pot. Add about 1c. brown rice. Season to taste/preference (I often use Lemon Pepper, 6-Spice Rub or Taco Seasoning). Simmer for at least 3 hrs on back burner of stove. Serve with Corn Bread Muffins! Yum! (Just what we had for dinner last night!)

  129. says

    Wow, what a generous gift. I would love to be the lucky recipient.

    I would love to make chicken and vegetable soup in this beautiful pot if I was the fortunate enough to be the winner.

    Happy Christmas to you and your loved ones.

  130. Margy Kearney says

    The last couple of wintry weeks here – I have been making a very simple delicious and nutritious soup from red lentils, with some chicken broth, cumin, turmeric, and some sauteed onion and garlic. This pan would be perfect for making that soup.

  131. Vanesza says

    I would love to make some Chai tea in this beautiful saucepan and a scrumptious winter minestrone vegetable soup. Thanks for this generous giveaway!

  132. Susann Dalton says

    My friend had a tiny Cuban restaurant, Sabor in NYC of great popularity (the NY Times gave it two forks-a feat for a tiny neighborhood restaurant) and she asked me to taste this wonderful pumpkin soup she had made. Since I sometimes worked with her the recipe she gave me was a vague verbal description. I made it, tweaked it and it is my favorite soup. A savory, garlicy, cream based pumpkin soup with an elusive taste. A tiny amount of curry powder added to the sweating onions. Ahhhh. I am now two quart potless due to a house guest who used my favorite and only smaller pot as a hammer. I hate buying a cheap pot and cannot afford what I really want being old and on a fixed income. I love AllClad and am ever hopeful. It could happen. LOL

  133. robin says

    My sister just made a Cauliflower & Cheddar soup for our early Christmas celebration. It was delicious!!! She got the recipe from the William Sonoma catalog…she made it with veggie broth for my husband & I (vegetarians) & still super delicious. No one knew it had been vegetarianized!!
    I’ll definitely make that soup soon.

  134. Charlene T. says

    I would make a fettuccine alfredo sauce I make with an almond/cashew milk substitute. Its so yummy! Thank you Elena for all that you do. Christmas would be a mess at my house without your wonderful cookbooks and recipes!
    Happy Holidays!

  135. says

    Okay, this is my first time posting anywhere! Why did my husband’s photo come up? Strange!
    Please tell Jan (and Holly) to put baking soda in the soaking water of their burnt pans.

  136. says

    Happy Anniversary. Did your kids help you celebrate? We have our 25th on Dec. 27th and I hope our sons make it home to help us honour our 32 years (25 of them married).
    I have not seen these pots but can see by all the posts it is really special. We would be making a Polish Christmas Eve (meatless) Borscht with Uhska (wild mushroom dumplings) floating in it. And the rest of the time chicken broth to use as a base for other types of soup (and to feed our Bernese Mountain dog who has decided he will only eat his dinner if it has some chicken tidbits on it. (we cook a lot of organic chicken soup bones in this house!) and with all the power outages here it is really handy to have soups to heat on the wood stove!
    I was delighted to discover your site this month and sit here eating your carrot cake muffins – thank you for all the healthy recipes.

  137. Kristi B says

    Great giveaway! We have a couple All-Clad pieces that I adore but I could put this to very good use! It seems everyone in my family has different food intolerances (or tolerances!) so gone are the days when I can make a giant pot of one type of a recipe. This smaller size would be perfect for the smaller portions I make for just about everything, from soup to hot chocolate to a steamed veggie side dish. Recently I’ve been braising cubed yams in a little liquid on the stovetop and smashing them up (for those of us who can eat tubers!)

  138. Ginica Eggering says

    I would whip up one of my favorite soups as soon as I received this wonderful gift. My soup of chice is Carmelized Ginger Carrot Soup. Carrots and a sweet potato add a slightly sweet base, with just enough ginger to add a layer of heat and carmelized onions for a savory-sweet treat.

  139. Janice Chan says

    Hello Elana, I would make my GF ‘cream’ of cauliflower and dill soup, as well as my GF tomato meat sauce if I won this set!

    Thanks! Janice.

  140. Karen says

    I would use this awesome pan to make chicken noodle, tomato, and pea soup which my family loves on these chilly winter nights… I would also use it to make my yummy chai drink. Thanks for such a nice giveaway!

  141. says

    WOW I NEED THIS POT!! First I would make a Chicken Tortilla soup which includes tomatoes, green chilies, chicken, tortilla strips, and a few other special ingredients , THEN the next day I would make a cuban style pork soup, including pork, fresh yucca, sweet potatoe chunks and scallions along with some other tasty ingredients to suit the needs of our Gluten free household!

  142. Rachel Morales says

    There are so many things I would want to make in this pot! But probably a spicy bean soup with poached eggs that is popular in my husband’s culture. That would make him happy :)

  143. says

    I would make a mineral broth as it’s the season for colds and flu. I love having broth around to sip on a cold day or to use as a base for one of my delicious soups.
    I usually make veggie broths and use all of odds and ends from weeks of chopping, but lately I’ve been experimenting with shiitake mushroom broths and bone broths. I’m sure All-Clad makes a mean broth!

  144. Jill Graham says

    I love to make soups, especially when the weather is cool. A good friend gave me a fabulous recipe for a creamy mushroom soup made with paprika, dill and soy sauce…sounds like a crazy combination, but it is delcious! Thanks for this opportunity!

  145. Carla says

    I would use it to make Butternut Squash Apple soup. When I first graduated from college and moved into an apartment, I emailed my close friend’s mother, who is an amazing cook, and asked her for her favorite recipes. She sent me this soup recipe, adapted from an Ina Garten cookbook. I have been making it on cold winter evenings ever since.

  146. kara says

    Thanks, Elana! I would make all kinds of soup in that excellent pot. Squash, mushroom, lentil… it would be great for winter.

  147. Nichole Espinoza says

    If I had this awesome pan, I would make a huge batch of chili! Tis the season for Chili!

  148. Lori B says

    I would make warm steel cut oats or rice cereal every morning to warm my tummy. Coconut milk + cinnamon + cloves + ginger + butter + salt + agave + frozen blueberries + pecans = a delicious breakfast I can make on the run.

  149. Mary says

    What a great giveaway! I would use that saucepan to make a delectable butternut squash soup, and top it with a dollop of cashew creme, some chives, and diced red pepper.

    Thanks for so many opportunities to win!

  150. andreemarie says

    Hi Elana!

    Chicken soup immediately came to mind – I have a receipe that never fails me, It was given to me over 20 years ago from a colleague while working @ A&S department stor during the Christmas season.
    What makes this soup special is the fact that “Chicken Soup” is universal – reason being,,,,This amazing reccipe was shared with me, an African American woman by a Puerto Rican woman whose mother in law gave her the receipe who is a Jewish woman…
    I love it !!!

  151. says

    About 5 times a week I make “slaw soup”. Shredded cabbage, carrots and cashews sauteed in coconut oil, then I add a few teriyaki meatballs and a cup of broth.

    I’m sure it would taste even better when prepared in an all-clad sauce pan!

  152. Christine says

    Our house is so chilly right now, hoping to have our furnace repaired today. I would love to make up a batch of hot chocolate right about now in that beautiful sauce pan. Enough said. :-)

  153. Petite says

    My friend Judy gave me a recipe for Sausage Stroganoff Soup. Since it is snowing in Reno, NV right now, this soup would be warm and comforting. Last night my husband disposed of the sauce pan he brought into our marriage (42 years ago) – it had rusted and he was sad.

  154. Ashlee says

    Mmm, white chicken chili… wait, maybe lentil&apple soup oh and the hot drinks would be endless. I actually make a chai concentrate every week for my chai lattes :)

  155. Shelly says

    I would be temped to make a carrot soup, but then would give in and make what the family would eat- Chicken Noodle. (I help it look a little better with some grated zucchini).

    It’s been fun reading all of the ideas that everyone has listed.

    Happy Holidays!

  156. Cyndi Keifer says

    I have a recipe for Lentil Soup with sweet potatoes with garam masala as the main spice that I would cook in this pan.

  157. Annette says

    If I had one of these All Clad pans to play with, the first thing I would make in it would be my black bean and citrus soup. Then I would try making some hot chocolate with a touch of peppermint for the season. Yummy!

  158. Ben says

    Definitely either pumpkin and caramelized onion soup or creamy tomato soup for grilled cheese dunking

  159. Dana Crumley says

    I would make a yummy Navy Bean & Lamb soup, my partners most favorite anytime of the year! I love the flavor and thickness the organic pumpkin provides. I may just have to make it now and if I win the pot for sure!

  160. Chris says

    My wife and I really enjoy a hearty potato soup…
    We adapted a recipe we found online, and make it frequently throughout the winter months.
    The ingredients include Kale, sausage, crushed red pepper, thick cut bacon, onion, kosher salt, heavy whipping cream, and of course potatoes.
    The red pepper adds a spicy kick on a cold winter evening.
    We enjoy a piece of fresh baked bread with our soup.

    Thanks for the chance!

  161. Susan Maki says

    I would use it to make my comfort soups like creamy potato, tomato basil, chicken and rice or corn chowder. I make a lot of soups because I can sneak even more healthy and nutrient packed ingredients by my picky toddler and preschooler that way. They gobble it up and a smile knowing that they are getting more than full bellies! Maybe the occassional Hot Carob “Cocoa” with coconut milk, too.
    My husband and I just celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary yesterday on the 16th :-) Congrats on your 15 years!

  162. Ainnl says

    Ooh, I’d make many things in this pan. I’d make a caramel sauce to pour over popcorn, warm up some leftover pumpkin soup, steam some rice, and make mulled wine–just to start with!

  163. n. blantis says

    I love to take my leftover lamb bone from a roast and reroast it in an iron clad pot with rosemary and garlic. I then make a lovely scotch broth with barley. Warming, aromatic…the best!

  164. says

    Happy Anniversary!

    A local coffee shop had a sweet potato & peanut butter soup that I’d love to figure out how to make…it wasn’t gluten-free, so I just have an idea of how it would taste.

  165. Ann Blocker says

    My favorite soups – a simple vegetable soup, with anything in my fridge!, or an African Peanut Soup (squash, coconut milk, peanut butter).

  166. jeni indresano says

    if i had the fancy all-clad 2 quart pan i’d use it all the time. i’d make my favorite dal, homemade chai, chicken soup, caramel sauce, mexican hot chocolate, tom yam goong, blanched green beans, rice fusilli, tapioca pudding, hot cider, and so many other yummy things. oh, to cook with quality equipment–its a dream!

  167. Gwen says

    I would make brothy rice noodles. Garlic, ginger, broth, spinach and lots of noodles. Chicken is always an option too.

  168. Elizabeth says

    It must be the season for giveaways!! I would use the pan for anything, everything and probably some baked potato soup too :)

    Thanks for being awesome!

  169. Corinne Fay says

    I don’t have an oven right now, so pots are REALLY essential, and a high quality one like this would be great! I would use it for everything from cooking dried beans or a pot of rice to making pudding (a good dessert for someone without an oven.)

  170. says

    These pans are great! And I love soup! Perhaps, a nice Cream of Mushroom. Or Greek Chicken Soup with its wonderful lemon kick! Or Italian Wedding Soup with wonderful tiny meatballs and lots of escarole! Oh…the options are endless. I would put this pot to great use!

  171. says

    If I had the pan I would make and Italian chickpea soup during these cold winter months. Take one onion and dice it. Add to pan with a little olive oil and saute for about 6/8 minutes. Add on can chickpeas and continue to saute for another 3/4 minutes. Breakup about one quarter to one third of the chickpeas with a fork. Do not mash completely, just mash roughly to thicken the sauce. Add 2 1/2 to 3 cups water. Salt & pepper to taste. heat and serve.

  172. Buffi Frazier says

    It sounds like everyone is thinking soup! Well, I guess I will jump on the bandwagon. I would make our family’s favorite winter soup: White Bean and Italian Sausage Soup.

  173. Jen says

    I would make my favorite curried butternut squash soup. I can’t seem to get enough butternut squash this year!

  174. Melodi Nelson says

    Lately my favorite stew is chicken french lentil stew. Hearty, delicious and so easy to make. I love those beautiful french lentils!
    Peace Melodi

  175. says

    This is the perfect sized pan to make my agave spiced simple syrup. Steep the mulling spices and a few drops of vanilla in some light agave syrup over low heat for 20 minutes for a perfect quick additive to coffee, cider, tea or wine. Also makes a good base and substitute for sugar for spiced whipped cream.
    Thanks for the opportunity to win this pan and learn more about gluten free cooking & baking! Happiest Holidays from snowy Ohio.

  176. Kathi French says

    I can’t believe that pot has lasted that long! I have been looking to buy a new set and did not know what to buy – I do now! I would make chicken soup. That is the most requested soup in my house this time of year.

  177. Katie says

    I would love to win this! I would make warm vanilla smoothers from heavenly homemakers blog. Yummy! My kids really like it! love your blog by the way!

  178. says

    I would make my all time favorite BLACK BEAN VEGETABLE SOUP. It is such a full bodied soup and as a vegetarian I love the fact that it has the protein I need and the vitamins my body also needs. The aroma when it is cooking fills my kitchen. The broth is so tasty and that is a bonus as not all soup broths are created equal.

    Thank you for allowing me to enter this giveaway and thank you for doing this.

  179. Walter says

    I would make my simple and delicious pasta fagioli soup. I know, this is not gluten free but it can be made that way. Easy to put together and so tasty for a cold winter night. Hot Italian chicken sausage, chicken broth, chopped zucchini, canned stewed tomatoes, basil, oregano, seashell pasta, and a can or two of red and white kidney beans. Top it off with freshly shredded asiago cheese and a glass of good red table wine for a hearty easy meal. Enjoy!

  180. Allison says

    I would test out your butternut squash soup as I have been craving some. Maybe I would add a little coconut milk instead of water and some curry paste. YUM!

  181. Tara says

    What a wonderful giveaway! If I won the sauce pot, I would use it to learn our family’s traditional Borscht from my father. A great cookware item to get down to serious business.

  182. Jaan says

    My favorite beverage to make is Chocolate Chia for my son. I first simmer the milk till it reduces in volume by abt 1/3. Add sweetner, and better quality of cocoa powder. Blend well, then aerate the mixture for fuller/richer taste, besides it helps cool down the mixture so my son wont to hot for him to drink.

  183. Lauren says

    This is so funny that you’re giving this sauce pan away. Several years ago, my brother and sister in law left some of their All-Clad pots with me when they moved abroad due to space issues. Each time my brother visits, he takes another pot with him. I have been waiting for the day when they take this sauce pan! In fact, I was just joking with my sister in law yesterday about it! It is a perfect size for so many things. I would probably make a small batch of quinoa if I had one right now, and then make a nice cold salad to enjoy. (I’m on holiday in Buenos Aires where it’s summer currently! No cold holidays for me this year–yay!)

  184. says

    I would love to make a wonderful chocolate pudding with coconut milk! I have been dying to try something like this. Also, I think a nice broccoli/cauliflower soup would be excellent this time of year!

  185. says

    I’ll make the filling for my lemon meringue pie…I use your blanched almond flour crust and it’s become my grandmother’s request for every family function!

  186. marti kehs says

    If I were to win the pot, I would make up a batch of venison or buffalo pepper steak! My husband’s (of 31 years….we were married in 1979! Have known each other since we were sweet sixteen!) FAVORITE!

    P.S. Elana…I have made the KALE chips 3 times, shared them with my girlfriends, & can I just say, “O.M.G.!” In ONE sitting I ate the whole head of kale MYSELF! thank you thank you thank you! They are like eating Salt & Vinegar potato chips, without the GUILT or yucky POTATOES!

  187. CherylinBC says

    I would create a lovely fresh veggie soup with tiny meatballs, spinach, leeks, & chopped sundried tomatoes.

  188. Susan Chafin says

    If I was the one to win the all clad sauce pan I would make a lot of wonderful soup starting with Curry Butternut squash with Cashew Coconut cream.

  189. marina says

    since my recent developments in dietary constraints, soups are one of the few ways i can eat vegetables. i would use this pot to make pureed broccoli soup (broccoli & cheese used to be my favorite, but i cannot eat the creamy soups anymore, so this is a good alternative!)

  190. Susan says

    Warm, creamy squash soup with cashew undertones, highlighted by ginger. Served with chopped cilantro. Perfection.

  191. Regina says

    I would make hot chocolate for all the wonderful kids at the orphanage I’m volunteering at in Kenya.

  192. Megan says

    As I am an acupuncture student, living between homes, I would make BONE MARROW soup, of course!

    Bone marrow strengthens the JING- or the fundamental and core energy of the body. It is a superior tonic and worldwide many cultures have made use of the bone marrow and its ultra-fortifying properties.

    I am always studying and whenever I get a little blood deficient or feel lethargic, I like to make bone marrow soup~

  193. Kathy Foulk says

    Green Chile sounds great to me. Happy Anniversary!! We’ve had 34 so far. Congratulations!! Love your site.

  194. Susan M. says

    I actually just went out to the store last night to buy ingredients for making homemade, gluten-free chicken soup and homemade gluten-free butternut squash soup with cumin and chipotle chili powder. I’ve been sick over the past few days and have been craving soup soooo much (not to mention the cold weather serving as inspiration as well). The butternut squash soup is a soup my sister made for Thanksgiving 2 years ago – it is smoky,subtlely spicy, savory, and naturally gluten-free, sugar-free, AND dairy free (she is lactose intolerant). Yummm!

  195. andy says

    What fun! I have a favorite roasted plum tomatoes and basil soup followed closely by a creamy roasted red pepper soup (dairy free, using potatoes instead of cream).

  196. Suzanne says

    This time of year…potato leek soup, winter squash soup with ginger, hot chocolate, the list goes on and on. Thanks for the chance!

  197. Tana says

    This is a beautiful saucepan! I haven’t bought a new saucepan in about 18 years, since my hubby and I have been together. :( I would use it for lots of things, brown rice and quinoa dishes, and soups too! Thanks for all the great ideas. :-)

  198. Laura says

    OOOOOh, I love All-Clad. They do last forever.

    I would make lentil vegetable soup. Lots of flavor and fiber and very filling.

    Happy Anniversary!


  199. Jana says

    A 2-quart pan would be perfect for making my mothers vanilla cream pie filling! The only thing that would be better… Still having her here with us to cook it with me!

  200. Theresa says

    not into fancy soups but I always have on hand a good hearty Chicken and wild rice soup. Winters can get cold up in Alaska so we are always making a stew, soup or goulash type meal to warm our bodies. A good soup/stew pan would be a great addition to our kitchen.

  201. Dusty says

    I have to be honest, my fiance would probably not like what I would cook in this pan for I am not the cook she can be. I would keep it simple with some sorta stir-fry I imagine or some pasta sauce. However I would like to win this pan for her. She makes great food and one of my favorites is her pumpkin soup. I have no idea how she makes it but I have seen pumpkin remnants when she is finished and that is what I have dubbed it.



  202. says

    I would use that awesome pot to make a big batch of gingered carrot cashew soup to serve over brown rice. That way my house would smell delicious, my belly would be happy, and I would make a tiny dent in the bounty that came with this week’s CSA share from Monroe Farm.

  203. Audrey says

    Lovely pot! I’d use it to make instant soup, ramen, tofu stew, and many more, including desert and rice. Thanks!

  204. leigh says

    I’d make spicy Moroccan soup with gluten free Israeli couscous, followed by some warm Valrhona hot chocolate……….yum.

  205. Marla Teyolia says

    Oh, what a great giveaway! i would use mine for a fabulous new mushroom red wine gravy recipe i just gleaned from a friend….Marla

  206. Linda:-) says

    Congratulations on your Anniversary! And Best wishes for many more!

    I’d love to win that beautiful pan to make the delicious Home-made Hot Cocoa Recipe that my husband’s mom used to make with a pinch of cinnamon. It would go great with your chocolate cookies while seated in front of the fireplace watching the snow fall outside!

  207. Tina Marie says

    I make these incredible roasted peppers and oven roasted(termed sun-dried) tomatoes drizzled with olive oil. So, I’d work on my next soup creation for the winter weather which would be blending the flavors of these two ingredients to make a slightly thick roasted tomato and pepper soup topped with roasted pine nuts with a little chopped fresh basil. Delicious! The we’d sit and eat it all up! What a terrific give-away. Thank you Elana.

  208. ali says

    i would use it to make lots of soup and honey sweetened chocolates. i’ve been meaning to try your gluten-free matzoh ball soup

  209. Kristin T says

    I would make some homemade wassail! So yummy and perfect for the holidays. Thanks for your always ingenious recipes Elana!

  210. Carol Kimball says

    I would make my Southwestern Chicken soup.
    Besides various veggies, chicken and chicken broth I like to add cumin, tomatoes and mashed caulflower which makes the broth a little creamy.

  211. Peggy Parsons says

    The All-Clad Sauce Pan is a great size. A 2 quart can be used for so many
    things. I would use it to make vegetable soup and add gluten free pasta,
    to cook a pot of gluten free oatmeal, to cook a pot of hot chocolate. It would be just the right size to make a pot of rice for my husband and my
    self. I could go on and on.

  212. Judith Aikman says

    I would make Squash Soup with pear juice, chicken stock and ginger plua squash and carrots. Puree until smooth.
    Beautiful pot.


  213. Ernie Viveiros says

    This is such an easy answer. I would use this excellent pot to make the most awesome Portuguese Kale Soup in history. The thought of it simmering on the stove is making my mouth water. Lean, spicy chourico puts it over the top.

    I really hope I win… because I’m really hungry!

    ~Ernie Viveiros

  214. Jennifer Pfeiffer says

    What a great giveaway!

    I’d make a new allergy-friendly egg nog recipe that I just found.

  215. Gail says

    What a perfect saucepan for making roasted tomato and red pepper soup. How good is that?

    I hope you had a special day on your anniversary today. Thanks again for multi-great giveaways.

  216. Jessica says

    What a fantastic pot! I would make up some cinnamon apple cider and butternut squash soup. Yummy!

  217. Erin says

    Ooh, I’d have to say Hot Chocolate would be the first thing made in the pot! (As it’s snowing and VERY chilly outside right now).
    It would also have quite a few quinoa and squash soups made in it.

  218. Pat Ehrenfried says

    In my new all clad pan,I would make Hot Chocolate in the Winter and Ice Tea in the Summer.

  219. sheila says

    Hi Elana,
    OMG..All-Clad pots…My all time favourite…..I have dreamed of having some of these pots..they are so awesome.

    If I won this pot I would definitely use it to make a huge minestrone
    soup with tons of veggies.
    At this time of the year(with cold&snow) this soup is great comfort fodd and a meal in one pot with added meat or tofu protein.
    I could use this pot for so many other things.
    Also thanx for your great recipes.


  220. Nana says

    Happy Anniversary! I love to make vegetable soup with ground beef added. That would be my first soup to make if I win.

  221. Brandae says

    A vegan, gluten-free minestrone soup with roasted winter vegetables (based on Pioneer Woman’s website. YUM – Would love to win.

  222. Helena Kosorek says

    Hello: I’d love a new pot but not because I’m a good cook or even have a recipe for it. The only soup I can make is from canned cannelli beans with a herb boullion cube and some sauted onions and garlic and maybe some veggies. I like to make things that are quick and the pot’s size is a good one. Rice and cereals are a staple for me.

  223. Robin Rundbaken says

    Ohhhh, the sky is the limit w/this awesome All-Clad pot! First, I would make homemade GFCFSF rice to be blended up into rice milk; then I would make pinto beans (yummy on a cold evening); would also use the pot to make a big ole’ batch of my M.I.L’s Leek and Butternut squash soup (comfort food in the winter!).
    Thank you for the opportunity to get in on the giveaway :)
    *We love your cookbook and we are blogfollowers!

  224. Marsha says

    I would adore to own this pot and make some wonderful Pumpkin Soup with Creme Frache-m an old GF standby from Bon Appetit days!

  225. Mary Unruh says

    mmmmm….. What a nice giveaway! I would make coffee vanilla bean (from the dinner files blog recently) and when it had fermented six weeks later I would make hot chocolate to serve it with. while witting for the liquour to ferment, I’d most likely be making butternut squash soup with peanut butter and siracha, or lemon chicken soup.

  226. Heartsong says

    Oh my, there are so many kinds of soup I would make in that lovely pan, but I think I would begin with my adaptation of Madhur Jaffrey’s Muligatawny soup. My friends love it when I make that soup and invite them over. I love the way it makes the kitchen smell…. oh, and then there is roasted butternut squash soup, and curried split pea, and Chickpea gypsy soup (an adaptation from Moosewood cookbook)…

    Thanks for the super give-aways. Somebody is going to be very happy!

  227. Lecia Riccelli says

    Squash Aduki Chestnut Soup from your soup recipes would be the first I would prepare in the All Clad Sauce pan. It looks so delicious and I have much to learn to make good soups.

  228. Joy Nicol says

    Ohhhh….I want this pan, I need this pan!!! What a fabulous giveaway! I would make white chili, fruit jams, steamed rice, spaghetti sauce, black beans, you name it! It is a great size for a family with 3 smaller children. Thank you Elana!

  229. Angela says

    I would use this pot to make hot chocolate for my children and bone broths for many delicous soups.

  230. Jason says

    Borscht (using my great grandmother’s recipe from the old country). Perfect size pan for a few servings.

  231. nosogirl says

    Great giveaway! I would probably make a really nice turkey chili or maybe a ham & bean soup.

    julie_reuter92 at yahoo dot com

  232. bill barnes says

    Winter is a GREAT time of the year for a warm bowl of soup served with hard roll or chips. We enjoy TACO SOUP. Would be great to have an
    All Clad pan to make our favorite soups.

  233. Lorraine says

    I woulld make Creamy Thai Soup fom the Sensational Soy cookbook put out by Sanitarium. It is easy, cheap with a little fire and oh so creamy. I make double and put some in the freezer for when I am in a hurry.

  234. AidelK says

    Happy Anniversary! (Mine is 15 December). We love soup–one of our favorites is peanut butter-pumpkin from an old Silver Palate cookbook.

  235. Madeline says

    I love All Clad! It is the best cookware, and my food tastes so GOOD when I cook in it.
    I love chai. I have a special chai recipe that was taught to me by a friend from India
    years ago. It is the best. And I know in this All Clad saucepan, it would taste even better.

  236. Reagan Powell says

    Would love to experiment with some gfcf hot chocolate for my kids. They have been asking for hot chocolate a lot lately!!!!

  237. Brenda Parsons says

    I would make soups, soups and more soups. Smoky Butternut Squash and Smoky Black Bean. I am in desperate need of new good pots to go with my new gas cooktop.

  238. deborah j. martin says

    One of my favorite winter soups is my mom’s vegetable soup with frozen veggies from the summer garden from the tomatoes, corn and green lima beans and must not forget the okra that really makes it delicious.

  239. James Carch says

    I would make a lentil soup using the turkey broth from the carcass of our Thanksgiving turkey.

  240. Elise says

    I would make a delicious batch of apple & butternut squash soup with my dear friend Lydia. The soup would have a dash of curry added to it to give it just a tad bit more heat for these chilly days.

    I would serve it with Elana’s simple bread (in muffin form), on a pretty blue plate to complement the harvesty orange-colored soup. This duo would also be perfect all packed up for lunch at work, maybe even accompanied by the Community Supported Spinach Cake. <3

  241. scott buss says

    I would love to make your coconut chicken soup in the sauce pan. It brings back wonderful memories of living overseas (far East)when my father was in the military. The aromas of the fresh fish, vegetables, spices in the open air markets along with the sweet spices makes my mouth water for creative mixtures of ingredients in soups. Especially this time of year in Minnesota! A warm delicious bowl of soup sounds great huh?

  242. carol albert says

    I want to make a fragrant apple squash, applejack soup that scents my entire Holiday apartment and warms everyone who enters–right to the heart.

  243. Kelly Wyatt says

    I’d make a warm spiced cider if I won;-)! Would make the house smell great this time of year and warm our tummies!

  244. Gloria Spacek says

    Just recently found out about All Clad and have begged my Santa for the omlette pan. How wonderful it would be to be able to have this saucepan to make Minestrone soup. Yum or even a gazpacho during the summer months. Sighing and dreaming of winning! :)

  245. BETSY BROCK says

    I would make one of my favorite things, PHO, wonderful Thai rice noodle soup with cilantro, and lime and all the vegies that it calls for. My mouth is watering just thinking of it!!! :)

  246. liz f. says

    we’ve been enjoying mulled wine to celebrate the holidays. i think this pot would be perfect for making this warming and festive beverage! thanks for the opportunity.

  247. says

    I think I’m going to make myself a recipe book from everyone else’s comments – yum!

    I’ve got a big bag of organic cranberries just waiting to be made into sauce…this pot would suit them just fine.

    Then later, eggnog!

  248. Brenda Walberg says

    I would use the All-Clad saucepan to simmer a wonderful chicken broth on very low heat for several hours to extract all the wonderful goodness from the chicken bones. I would use garlic, onion and carrot to make the broth. I understand that All-Clad cookware can cook on very low flame or heat, just what’s needed to get the most flavor out a just a few ingredients.

  249. SewNSewGirl says

    I would make that tomato soup recipe form my aunt that has no amounts and just ingredients listed. It uses a cream sauce at the end. Still trying to get the ingredients amounts jut right.

  250. jennifer k says

    Awesome giveaways! If I won the saucepan, it would be the start of my All-clad collection. (I’ve had my eye on this for a while.) Wouldlove to have a good saucepan to make gravy, mushroom soup, or yummy hot chocolate this winter :)

  251. Linda Berman says

    On this cold and snowy evening, I envision making a lovely pot of white bean, kale and chicken sausage soup. Warm, beautiful in the bowl and satisfying.

  252. Carol Deacon says

    If I were to win this amazing piece of cookware, I would make Thai Tom Yum Soup. It is a wonderful blend of hot and sour flavors with an intoxicating herbal fragrance.

  253. MANDA says

    i would make hot chocolate;) i have a low carb version ive been excited to try..but oddly enough, i had to throw away my medium saucepan as the non-stick coating is chipping off! waiting to buy pots and pans for myself for christmas;)

  254. amy says

    i would make shiitake mushroom and wild rice soup, my family’s current favorite! and theeeeennnnnnn, mulled cider for dessert! thanks so much for what you contribute to the etherways. :)

  255. Barb says

    Happy Anniversary! A lentil-kale soup would probably be my first choice to try out a new wonderful pot. Thanks for all your delicious recipes – I’ve learned a lot from you!

  256. Debbie Pettigrew says

    We make hot chocolate almost every evening in the winter and I would love this pot to make it in!!!!!!

  257. Jayne Chandler says

    I would use the All-Clad 2qt saucepan for chocolate, sweet sauces, soups, chili, gravies, etc. The list is endless. it has to be the most essential size pot in any kitchen and the quality makes it a joy to use.

  258. says

    I would make Tomato Soup in this lovely pan. Actually, I’d make many different kinds of soup, but Tomato would be the first one I’d make.

  259. Claudia says

    Hot chocolate! And lots of it, because the weather today was quite nasty and there’s no hope for improvement any time soon…

  260. Elaina Harman says

    I envision a nice tomato basil soup with a batch of your biscuits and a salad along side.
    I slowly trying to have only the utentils that would be all stainless steel or the new green pans that are coming out now, have you checked those out yet or what do you think in them if you have reviewed them at all.
    Thanks again for all you do,

  261. Valerie Swabb says

    I’ve been wanting to make some spiced apple cider lately, but dont have the right stuff. This would be GReat!

  262. Dawn Christenson says

    Elana, if I were the lucky person to win this pot, I would make a batch of roasted vegetable soup – the ultimate nutritious, completely gluten frree goodness! And top it with a bit of truffle oil for good measure!

  263. Cindy Mitchell says


    When I win the all clad sauce pan giveaway, I’m definitely going to make the SOOTHING CHAI recipe from your site–I just saw it for the first time, from the link you placed in the give away notice, otherwise I would have already tried it! After that, I will probably use it to make my one of my dear great grandmother’s recipes (totally not gluten free!).


  264. Carol says

    I was just talking to my husband about the necessity for quality cookware!
    I would use my All-Clad pan to make delicious breakfast treats like GF Oatmeal or Cream of Buckwheat cereal. I would also make traditional Indian Chai.
    Thanks for this opportunity~

  265. Sean says

    If I won, I’d break in the pot with a batch of Bourbon-Brown Sugar Lemonade. Start with a 1 & 1/2 cups of dark brown sugar in the saucepan with a cinnamon stick, 3 cups of water, and the rinds of a dozen lemons. Bring to a boil and simmer for 10 minutes, then cool. Strain the syrup and add it to a pitcher with the juice of the afforementioned dozen lemons, and a cup or so of Maker’s Mark. Serve over ice in highball glasses with a slice of lemon. It’s got the character of a winter beverage yet still very refreshing. Bottoms up.


  266. Pam McGuire says

    I would use the sauce pan to make hot chocolate with milk, Mexican chocolate, sugar and cinnamon. Yum!

  267. Patricia says

    What a great giveaway. I would be using that wonderful pan every single day as I do a great deal of cooking and baking. One good choice for using it would be for making potato soup. Thanks.

  268. says

    Most of all, I would hope that this stainless steel pot could be used on my one-burner induction unit. We live in a very small apartment, and the building is not set up for electric stoves. Unfortunately, I deal with “multiple chemical sensitivities”, and I am not able to use the gas stove. So, it was disconnected, and my husband and a friend of his made a nice stainless steel cover for the burners, and my electric induction unit sets on that. Currently, the only pan I have which will work on it is a cast iron ” chicken fryer”, which I love, and I have to cook everything with. I do have 2 other electric skillets, which I use all the time, as well. But I have no sauce pans that I can use at the moment, even though I have a good set of cookware. They cannot be “magnetically induced” to heat. So, I would be delighted to have a sauce pan to use for so many things. Even today, I made a great Black Bean Tostada recipe, but I had to cook the onions and tomatoes and beans in my electric skillet, as I had already was making chicken soup on my induction unit with the cast iron pan. Anyway, it would be very nice to have to use on my electric induction unit. Thank you!

  269. katherine barnes says

    I would use the pan for making creamy tomato soup. I have been making this soup for my family for several years. Great served with grilled cheese sandwich.

  270. says

    I would keep it simple: homemade tomato-basil, my absolute favorite. :)

    My birthday is the 21st! Fingers crossed, maybe it will be my lucky day!

  271. Kim Brown says

    This time of year, I load up on fresh cranberries and freeze them. I would make cranberry chutney or maple cranberry butter in this sauce pan. Yummmm!!!

  272. Karolina says

    I would love to make a hearty winter vegetable soup with potatoes, carrots, parsnips and onions. Nothing hits the spot on a cold winter day better than a hot bowl of homemade soup.

  273. Michelle Sullivan says

    MMM…chickpea (ceci) soup (Marcella Hazan) is our cold-weather favorite.

    Thanks for the great giveaway. I’ve learned so much from your site.

  274. Betsy says

    I have been holding on to a recipe for curry carrot soup… that or mulled wine would be the first thing made in this pot!!

  275. Terra Stead says

    I would definitely make my vegetable bean chili – great with avocado chunks and brown rice. My family is officially tired of it, but it’s my favorite.

  276. Amy Broderick says

    Wow! Thanks for the giveaway…It’s raining today here in AZ and I am making split pea soup, I might make that or your vegan hot cocoa that I just printed out to try! Thanks for all you do and share Elana!

  277. Chris Murray says

    I just got a new receipe for potato soup with sausage. Its to die for, but my pot isn’t big enough. I would love to receive your pot and am looking forward to sharing my new receipe with my co-workers. I think food brings team building.


  278. beverly says

    Apple juice/cider with ginger slices simmered together to take the winter chill off. 4 star YUM and healthy too!

  279. Stephanie says

    To win this giveaway would be a Christmas Wish come true. My 2 qt. coated sauce pan is beginning to peel away its surface and should be permanently retired. I would love to make a butter nut squash soup in the All Clad cookware. Hopefully Santa will also bring me a requested immersion blender to complete the soup process. It would definitely be a Christmas to remember.

  280. Stephanie says

    I make a fabulous soup each fall with all the root vegetables and cabbage. Sounds not so good, but it actually is fantastic. When I called it cabbage soup, my children wouldn’t eat it. So I renamed it Hodge Podge soup, and they loved it.

  281. Jennifer Speirs says

    If I were to win the All Clad saucepan I would use it make my babies quinoa and brown rice as well as a fresh coconut milk and pumpkin soup.

  282. Kris says

    Oooh. I love All Clad. It’s made here locally, and it is just amazing stuff.

    I would make a lovely cream of potato soup, with a rainbow of potatoes – delicate baby redskins, the richness of some Yukon golds, and the Russets to round things out.

    I could gently simmer the potatoes in a delicate cream sauce, slowly building the flavors, adding the tempting richness of a variety of cheeses for the comforting flavor – some Gruyere, some cheddar, and a sprinkle of monterey jack on top.

    Some local apple wood smoked bacon would be carefully crumbled on top, for that sweet and salty taste, and just a dash of sour cream to sink slowly into that luscious cream sauce.

  283. Jackie says

    I would definitely make southwest turkey soup! One of my favs made with home canned or frozen salsa! Mmmmm

  284. Joanne says

    A new recipe I want to try would go in the allclad pot. A Spanish-style stew named Mole de Olla. It is a vegetable stew and I am intrigued by the addition of cloves and cinnamon (
    Happy Holidays!

  285. Andre Paiva says

    I would love to win those sauce pans!!!
    I would make tomato soup, black bean soup, french onion soup, minestronne soup, and many other soups, as soup is my favourite winter soup…
    Thank you kindly!

  286. JeanMarie Breslin says

    I would probable first make Chicken tortilla soup. What a great give away. Thanks for the opportunity.

  287. Anne says

    That pot would be perfect for a spicy cauliflower soup for a cold winter day.

    Thanks for the contest and your wonderful website.

  288. M.J. Malie says

    ~~~~We love soup so either, wedding, vegetable or lentil soup!!! A beverage would be homemade tomatoe juice :) Thanks for everything!~~~~

  289. Kate says

    Young Coconut Kefir!!! Drain young coconuts into the pan with kefir starter and warm it up. Let sit for three days in an airtight jar to create a yummy healthy probiotic drink!!!

  290. Zach says

    Hands down, a small batch of a fresh tomato basil soup. Clean & healthy, and so warming during this cold weather!

  291. Joyce says

    Thanks for the great giveaway. It has been amazingly chilly here in Florida and I would love to make a pot of lentil soup and maybe some hot chocolate!

  292. Jackie says

    Happy Anniversary!

    I would make potato soup for me & my Mom, as we are both feeling ill right now…

  293. Dawn says

    I would so make my “make do” soup! It has gone through the generations to make soup with anything you have in the fridge. It is different everytime but oh so good and comforting!!!

  294. laura haiker says

    I would make pasta fagioli for my aunt, who loves this soup. I would make hot chocolate for my kids. I also want to try Laura’s vanilla soothers from heavenly homemakers. I would LOVE to win this.

  295. says

    I have a flavor idea bouncing around in my head that I have yet to experiment: Chicken Cheddar Broccoli Chowder. Wish me luck (on the soup recipe that is, the pan would just be icing).

  296. says

    Thai Coconut Lime Shrimp would be the first thing I would make if I were to win the All Clad Sauce Pan. What a beautiful and practical pan it is! ;-)

  297. Vicki Diioia says

    Hi Elana-
    Great giveaway! Thanks so much for the offer.
    I would make spiced cider or mulled wine (just got a new recipe) for this time of year. All depending on who’s coming over, of course.
    Take care,

  298. Suzan Patterson says

    Actually, any recipe prepared in an All-Clad product would be delicious. I can see myself preparing a delicious fish stew, maybe some salmon with potatoes, onions, carrots and some fabulous crusty Italian bread to dip in this fragrant stew. Yum! Or how about some scrumptious chocolate pudding. I’m getting hungry just thinking about the possibilities! Thanks for asking!

  299. Sophia says

    This pot would be indispensable, I would use it for everything from cooking brown rice and cooking up small portions of gf pasta to making sauces. My friends have an all-clad set and I am so envious.

  300. Debra Cutri says

    What an awesome giveaway! I have slowly been collecting the all-clad pots that I need and I don’t have this one yet! I would use this pot for my homemade potato/broccoli soup!

  301. Diane says

    I can imagine using this pan to make homemade tomato basil soup. There are many sauces I would love to learn to make, including fresh cranberry sauce for the holidays. Cooking is such a comfort to me.

  302. Paul says

    Well, since its snowy outside and cold, it would be great to make some mulled spice cider or hot chocolate in the saucepan!!

  303. says

    My, what fancy pots!!! I could use that :) Lately, I’ve made vegan butternut squash soup for the cold weather, so that would probably be first. But I could see making more than just soup in there!!!

  304. Rachel says

    I have recently started on a grain free sugar free diet. I just stumbled across your website and I am SO excited! I am adventurous in the kitchen, and this pan would be used for many things…including my favorite autumn Pumpkin Soup! Thank you for your recipes!

  305. jan says

    Elana, i’d like some of each of the soups everyone would like to make. They all sound delicious and so warm on this cold evening.

    I’d first let it sit on the stove and admire it, they I’d make some cream of carrot.

    Thanks for the great give away and Happy Anniversary.

  306. Ann says

    I live about 8 miles from the factory- I would use this pot for glugwein on holidays and special occasions. Also a very good everyday pot!

  307. Serena Wright says


    I have been recently diagnosis with wheat allergy so yous website is amazing and helps me in every way. With this All-Clad sauce pan, I would make my Ginger Butternut Squash soup. It has a hint of ginger, nutmeg, cinnamon, and the squash for an wonderful meal. Pair this with the Apple crisp from your website for dessert, ugh, that would be divine.

    Thank you

  308. Carol Beasley says

    Not that original or fancy, but we love tomato soup at this time of year and have it weekly!

  309. says

    i would make my wife dark chocolate dipped candied ginger. she LOVES them. if that doesn’t make me a winner than maybe my lobster bisque might. i actually press my own lobster shells to extract the very essence of the lobster. i make my own tomato soup from my own jersey tomatoes and of course i use only the freshest local creme.

  310. Amanda Johnson says

    Some sort of fall soup I have never made before….Squash sounds so interesting. If I had this pan I would surly get brave and try it!

  311. Lisa Johnson says

    In LOVE with All-Clad! I would enjoy it over and over making the classic tomato soup! A favorite Winter comfort food! How can you go wrong?

    Cheers! Happy Cooking to all!


  312. Tyler Holt says

    If I was so fortunate as to be the recipient of the All-Clad saucepan, I would make a wonderful pumpkin risotto for my wife and I.

  313. Kim Costa says

    I would LOVE to win this gorgeous pan!! I would make a big batch of Chicken noodle soup!! My Husbands Grammas recipe, my favorite!!!

  314. Paula Hrynik says

    I’d make what I call “Steve’s Famous Buffalo Soup”. I know it’s not vegan (we are carnivores sometimes) but it is SO good! It’s actually a recipe from the Boulder Daily Camera some months back, but hubby made it for me and it’s been a hit both at Church and home. I’ll bet making it in an all-clad pot would make it taste even better. Of course there’s always chai and mulled cider to consider too! Not to ention…..

  315. Cassie says

    I love soups, so I don’t think I can narrow it down to one, but I am loving reading through the comments to get ideas for even more soups to make!

  316. says

    I would make a soup called “Sopa” that my mom has made since I was little girl (tomato sauce, chicken buillon, little shells, and lots of cheese!). Comfort fooddddd !!!

  317. Colleen Marwood says

    I love making Mexican Hot Chocolate over the stove. I use a pan similar but not as nice to the one you are giving away. Slowly assembling this yummy treat and gently heating produces a tasty cup of hot cocoa.

  318. Brenda says

    At this time of the year I would make hot chocolate using unsweetened
    coconut milk and Ibarra chocolate.

  319. Angela E. says

    Yet another wonderful giveaway! :-) I think I would make some chai with this sauce pan. I have always loved chai. I studied abroad in India and got to taste the best chai ever while there. Every since then, I’ve been trying to get mine to taste as good as the chai I had in India!

  320. Victoria says

    I would make a delicious hot chocolate with my Dagoba cocoa and also a spicy Thai butternut squash soup. I bet it will taste better being made in the all clad pot!!

  321. Lisa Lipson says

    I would love to have a new saucepan! The first thing I would
    make is hot cocoa with coconut milk and some coconut syrup which
    we just got. I am slowly cooking my way thru the cookbook and
    enjoying it! I have a child with Type I diabetes and the almond flour
    is just great for keeping blood sugars normal. Thanks!

  322. Stephanie R. says

    I love to cook but I am just getting back into it full throttle after years if illness. I eat a strict paleo diet as does my husband. My parents and kids, a little less so but a lot of home cooking happens here with us serving 5-10 people on average per night.
    Since it is cold now, a good soup is always welcome in our house! My creation would include grass fed beef seared in olive oil with garlic and onions. Carrots, zucchini, tomatoes, mushrooms added along with beef broth, spices and a few splashes of red wine. I usually gain inspiration as I go along :)

  323. Amanda says

    Happy Anniversary Elana! I hope you had a nice time together this weekend. My favorite soup is Thai Chicken Soup, I could eat that everyday. And with this pot I could make it everyday too!

  324. says

    What a fabulous giveaway. That pot is beautiful. I would probably use it to make tomato sauce, barbecue sauce or a lovely black bean soup!

  325. Laurel says

    Well I got married almost exactly one year before you (December 31, 1994) and wasn’t lucky enough to get those pots and pans for my wedding – my 2-quart revere ware pan has served me well all these years, but it is on it’s last legs – the handle keeps falling off – and ironically I was just researching new ones and thinking the All Clad sounded great. I’m not sure exactly what I would make in this, but given that my son with autism and I are both on a GF/CF diet (and a rotation diet to boot), we make almost everything from scratch around here, so my pots get a lot of use!

  326. Sandy says

    Hmmm…probably a butternut squash soup, or maybe a chicken tortilla soup. Both esp good on these cold days in MI

  327. Shannon says

    This looks like quite a beauty! I think I would first try a rich chocolate cocoa with a tiny bit of cognac (says my boyfriend!)

  328. Samantha Austin says

    I would use this wonderful pan for mulled wine during the holidays. There is nothing that says happy holidays to me than the delicious smell of lemon, orange, and cinnamon floating in the air.

  329. Stephanie says

    Elana, if i won this All Clad saucepan, i would make the Apple Syrup recipe in your Almond Flour Cookbook and have it on top of some wonderful almond flour pancakes!!!! My own hubby and i would have a feast!!!

  330. Janet says

    If I am the lucky winner of the All-Clad pan I would make beef pho. I can’t get enough rice noodle soups at this time of year! :)

  331. says

    Hello Elana,
    What soup would I make in this terrific All Clad pot?? Why my “famous” Potato, Leek, and Pumpkin Soup of course! It is YUMMY, easy, and naturally gluten free!!
    ~Mrs. R

  332. Shauna says

    I would use it to make some of my enchilada soup. I use nacho cheese, cream of chicken, shredded cheese, and top it off with pico de gallo and and crushed up tortilla chips

  333. Adria says


  334. Tonia says

    let’s see, oh so many options…..
    today I would start with hot carob (with raw milk and raw honey) for my kidlets
    then some TOM YUM soup sounds perfect!
    thanks for the inspiration!

  335. Christine Elsdon says

    I’d make a potato leek soup first, then a superb $1000 soup recipe (just google it, I dare you!!), I’d warm apple cider in it for our next family get-together, and it looks like an awesome pot for almond milk hot chocolate! yum yum!!

  336. Rachel says

    I would make my favorite silken cauliflower soup, it’s so delicious and a perfect comfort food for winter nights.

  337. Jackie H says

    Yay, it is soup season, isn’t it? :) I love my some butternut squash bisque or good ol’ fashion chicken noodle. :)

  338. Jeri Cole says

    The one soup that everyone can agree on and will eat (inmy family) is the standard chicken and noodle soup. It’s pretty basic but loved by all and perfect this time of year.

  339. Gretchen says

    Hard to choose between a beverage (chai tea?, mulled wine?, cocoa?) and soup, but I’d make white bean/potato/kale soup, with homemade stock. Kale is my favorite go-to green for adding nutrition, color, and flavor.

  340. Karrel says

    I think my favorite soup that I would…well probably my husband would make in this pot would have to be a Butternut Squash soup that he has perfected. It is the most asked for food that we have at our family get togethers. KB

  341. Patricia Kemp says

    I would make pumpkin soup in the All Clad pot. I would make it the same way as butternut squash soup, but add pumpkin pie spices to the cubed pumpkin. Yummy on cold days!

  342. says

    I would definitely make tortilla soup….it’s perfect weather here in Phoenix for it as we’re finally got some much needed rain today…Mmmm a hot bowl of steaming tortilla soup…hits the spot

  343. laura balsley says

    Oh… Let it snow! Let it snow! Let it snow!.. so Santa can deliver this wonderful awesome pan to me!.. I would love to own a PIECE of All clad.. this would be just PERfect for me! My first thing I ‘d make is hot peppermint-y cocoa to drink by our xmas tree!!!

    Oh! let it snow!…………………

  344. Joan says

    What an awesome giveaway. I would make a new recipe I just found – quinona and white bean soup with tomatoes and fresh spinach. Thanks for all your fabelous recipes and Happy Anniversary!

  345. Roni Barbuto says

    With the wintry, grey weather we’ve had the past few days, my mind goes to a roasted butternut squash soup served with toasted pecans.

    Love your site – keeps me healthy and creative.

  346. kell says

    hi Elana! thanks for the opportunity to win such a luxury item! the first thing I would try to make in it would be your pumpkin ginger soup, I’ve been dying to try it and I’m sure the pot would give me just that little swift kick to make it!!
    happy day!

  347. says

    Hi, what a great idea.
    My husband and I are looking for a magical soup to help us conceive a baby after trying for a long time. So we would make a baby- magic- cream -of- greens soup with an indian flair (mustard seeds, pepper) to spice things up, made with soy milk for the energy of Mother’s milk, and a nice amount of ghee for the butter of LOVE.
    This blended soup blends just the right yumminess and health to make a miracle, and we need one…in that pot of course!

  348. Hilary Day says

    This would be a beautiful Christmas pot for my famous spiced whole-cranberry sauce. But instead of sugar and orange juice (too much refined sugar!) I use enough OJ and Blue Agave Syrup to cook the cranberries with ground cloves and nutmeg until they all pop. Let it cool and add walnuts, mandarin oranges, raisins.

    Wipe down the sides of the pot and arrange leftover mandarin oranges in a pretty design on top of the sauce. Then put the pot right on the table!

  349. Jules says

    Who doesn’t love all-clad, they have such quality products! A perfect pot to make soup and sauces in. Now that it’s just me and my husband it’s the perfect size to make spaghetti sauce in, enough for a meal and leftovers –yummmm!

  350. Rebekah says

    I have one all-clad skillet and I love it. I’d love to make chai, multigrain cereal, and soups in this.

  351. Nana Rogers says

    Also posted it to facebook. Need to be sharing ;P

    And I hope with all my heart you and yours has a Very Happy Anniversary!

  352. MissMarlap says

    I would so love to make ROASTED CHESTNUT and Parsnip soup in this pot. I would also like to make a pumpkin soup.
    I have heard a lot of positive feedback about these pots and would love the chance to use one.
    Love your site….
    Your recipes are absolutely AMAZING

  353. Nana Rogers says

    Elana, This is my favorite sized pot too. I love making homemade minestrone soup. mmm
    And what a neat giveaway…

  354. says

    I have just discovered curries. recently i slow cooked a whole chicken and have been making green chicken curry soup with cauliflower and carrots. yum. so i would use your pot to try out more curries, like mabye, lamb with red curry paste???? i love your blog and recipes thanks.

  355. Linze Anderson says

    Butternut Squash Curry Soup is what I would love to make if I win this. It’s perfect during the cold season and it’s so easy to fix and serve.

  356. Kassandra says

    Since my kitchen is mostly used for the children it would have to be home-made chicken noodle soup, healthy gluten free style. And secondly hot chocolate with rice milk, dagoba or green & black cocoa, agave and a hint of cinnamon. Winter yumminess!! Thanks! :)

  357. Michelle says

    AAAHHH If I won an All-Clad Saucepan I would make your yummy butternut squash soup or melt the chocolate for your chocolate bark recipie. I am dairy and gluten free and love your recipies. Thank you for bringing a little joy to my crazy life.

  358. says

    A 2 qt saucepan, in our large family, would be used for sauces and individual fixins of oatmeal or left over heat ups. I’d LOVE to give this a try as we are in desperate need of new cookware and we cook everything from scratch here for a large family…..our cookware is in constant use.

  359. Lara says

    I would make my end of summer tomato soup, my fall butternut squash soup, The coming out of the cold hot chocolate, and my fling open the windows spring asparagus soup.

  360. sarah king says

    I would definetly make Muligitawny soup in this pot! You need alot of different ingredients, and you have to cook the spices first. To do this and it taste great a great pot is needed!

  361. Lois says

    Congratulations! My anniversary is tomorrow (17th…1999)…such a fun time of year! I would make sausage kale soup…again, and again, and again! Merry Christmas!

  362. Nikki Cook says

    I am a fanatic about designing new recipies for my family. I would make my Itallian Sausage soup right off the bat in this great pot. I can only imagine the gorgeous carmelized sear that I would get on my onions and sausage. OHHHH YUM!

  363. Shelley says

    Well, since I am munching on some Thai Butternut Squash soup as I sit here and write, that certainly comes to mind. I have also been wanting to try a Southwestern Chicken soup recipe that I saw on my favorite paleo website. The pot would be perfect for either dish!

    • says

      Oh, I used to have potato leak soup as a child. I had forgotten all about it. And, we always added mushrooms. As we were out mushroom picking, we also pulled up wild leaks. Then, my mom would make the potato leak soup with mushroom. Oh Yummy! I do believe that I’m going to put potatoes and leaks on my shopping list. Thanks for reminding me of some comfort food from long ago.

  364. Carlyn Lewis says

    I would really enjoy making my homemade broccoli soup or oatmeal in it! Thanks so much!
    Carlyn :)

  365. says

    Soups? Oh, isn’t this the perfect time for soup? I love soup on a cold winter day. So, here’s a list of a few of my favorite soups/stews.

    Tomato soup made with milk instead of water
    New England style chowder
    Homemade mushroom soup (preferably morels)
    New England Curry chowder

    The lst one is one that I created a recipe of. It’s absolutely delicious. And, it’s inexpensive to make.

  366. christina r says

    I would make my own chicken noodle soup, it’s simple but i haven’t found any sop that i like yet.

  367. Sarah F says

    This pan looks amazing! I love making almond chai at home (a great way to save money on the expensive lattes I love). I’d use it for that, soups and many other things. I cook constantly. Hope I win! :)

  368. Jenna says

    My four-year-old has just discovered warm drinks are great after being out in the snow. We’d make warm milk with vanilla, hot chocolate, or apple cider. Thanks for the great giveaway!

  369. Brooklynn Gaus says

    If I were to win that amazing all clad sauce pan I would be definitely making my mom’s homemade hot fudge sauce!

  370. P Roland says

    First, happy anniversary. I would use the all-clad pan for all sorts of things from hot chocolate to reheating and soups, sauces and such in between. I may even make a special batch of hot fudge (not made very often, but oh so good on homemade icecream). What a generous giveaway.

  371. Annie Wales says

    Tis the season for chowders and thick soups. My husband likes homemade corn chowder, which is especially good with a hearty slice of GF bread. I love pumpkin soup. The pan would be perfect for making old-fashioned cocoa or mulled cider.
    And…Happy Anniversary!

  372. Carrie says

    My favorite soup as of late is a spicy chicken soup. Its all about dumping junk in and it turns out delicious.

  373. Stacy says

    My husband would make your wonderful nut clusters, it’s perfect for the agave mixture and double boiling the chocolate!

  374. Angel says

    I cook everything from scratch for a family of 6 so I would use it everyday! My kids especially love agave hot cocoa!

  375. Sara says

    My 16mos. old son is a picky eater, but he loves my pumpkin soup. I have been making it once a week for the last few months. I would love to make his soup in this gorgeous All-Clad Sauce Pan!

  376. Helen says

    I would love to make a new recipe I got in the Natural Groceries new Calender called “Bean and Bacon Soup”. It looks delicious and it would cook up perfect in a new Clad pot, mine are shot.

  377. Terri says

    Chai is my favorite drink, hot or iced, year round. Not only is the taste so satisfying, the health benefits of all the spices used are so great. I would make Chai.

    I’m also addicted to Celery Root Soup which would fit perfectly in that sized pan.

    Thank you Elana, for all your wonderful recipes and and much appreciation for ALL that you give.


  378. Susan Daugherty says

    I would make butternut squash soup with this beautiful pot. I can just see the golden yellow soup on a slow simmer “smiling” in the pot. A simple and elegant soup in a quality pot.

  379. Kathy Widing says

    I would make hot chocolate and apple cider. Ice storm here today. We are drinking lots of hot cider. Winter not even begun yet. Were in for another cold and snowy one i do believe. The 2 quart pot would be used
    daily at our house.

    Have a good day and thanks for all the great recipes. Love them.


  380. Carrie Ham says

    I can’t wait to make Swwet Potato Thai Soup and Hot (Carob) Chocolate!!! Not to have at the same time of course! ;) Yummmmmm!

  381. Dorothea says

    Homemade tomato soup would be delicious made in such an awesome pan! Thanks for such a wonderful giveaway!

  382. Stephanie Clarkin says

    Oooo…my newest favorite soup is a Smoked Tomato that I learned in a class at Le Chat Gourmet (Eaton Rapids, MI). Though Denene had a much more sophisticated name for it that escapes me at the moment!

  383. Hilary Woo says

    Hi Karina! You are the best….love your blog and your desire to make yummy foods healthy or healthy foods yummy !! If I got this pot I would make yummy hot chocolate with whole milk and mint for the kids on Christmas. I would then add marshmallows for the final touch. Honestly that would be one of the many, many things I would make! Thanks for giving us a shot at this! Happy Holidays!!!

  384. Cheryl says

    Hmmm… you have stumped me with a soup or beverage. I know this pot would become the heart of my kitchenware. My mom had an All Clad sauce pan and I can remember her making absolutely everything in it. It withstood time, experimental recipes and fabulous cooking. In tribute to my mother, the first thing I would make would be her hearty spaghetti sauce with ground beef, onions, tomatoes and aromatic spices to taste. Growing up in the bitterly cold Mid West, having a wholesome and hot meal on a winter night was always so wonderful (especially with garlic bread made fresh in the broiler). I don’t know anyone who makes pasta sauce like my mom, which makes me appreciate her cooking talents even more.

    Beyond her sauce, I’d be sure to make many a variety of pasta sauces whilst never keeping track of what gets thrown in, homemade cream of mushroom soup, black bean soup, macaroni and cheese to then bake in the oven with bacon and breadcrumbs (yum!), my awesome turkey chili that is perfected with lots of cumin and many dashes of cinnamon, stew– we love making stew with eggplant and tomatoes and potatoes and carrots and onions… (even more yum!), curries made by my husband, reheating butternut squash and sweet potato soup made in bulk at the holidays and served with blue cheese, heating this wonderfully spiced mulled wine bought with my best friend in a cute Bavarian-themed town in WA called Leavenworth, mulling my own cider and wine, making hot chocolate the way I like best (breaking up and melting old chocolate bars that I didn’t like snacking on and then adding milk), just heating up milk so it gets bubbly and a little frothy and that wonderful skin forms so we can have steamed milk with maybe a little cinnamon, making all sorts of candies now that I’m learning how, cooking up ice cream mixes to chill and freeze into yummy batches of salted caramel ice cream and other tasty flavors, I’d learn how to make my best friend’s pumpkin turkey white bean chili that she gave me before going to our annual haunted trail trip at Halloween, using the pot as the bottom part of a double broiler to temper chocolate… really the list is endless and could never be capped at only soups or beverages. In cooking or baking, I do it because I love creating and sharing food with people. I like to see others enjoying something I made with love.

    I guess I wasn’t stumped after all; sorry for the long-winded response. Thanks for the chance to remember some good memories that I didn’t realize were tied to good food too!

    Happy Anniversary to you and your husband! How wonderful the two of you have been together so long. I hope you have a lovely day and that you go have a romantic evening together. Here’s to many more years of love and friendship! Congratulations =)

  385. Elie says

    I registered for AllClad when I got married (3 years ago today) and received ONE grill pan. I use it ALL THE TIME.

    I would LOVE to win this pot to make my “mock potato” soup. My husband doesn’t like vegetables, so I told him my roasted cauliflower soup is actually a Yukon gold potato and leek recipe. (The recipes are next to each other in my cookbook and when he asked what I was making, I just said “that one.”) He LOVES the cauliflower soup. He once told his mom she should ask me for the recipe… hope she doesn’t find out I’ve been lying to her son. Sometimes lying to your hubby to keep him healthy is a good thing. Potatoes bad, cauliflower GOOD!!!

    Help me keep my hubby healthy and let me win the pot!!

  386. Sam Totten says

    I hope I win! I imagine myself making a thick and delicious sweet potato and black bean stew with cayenne and cinnamon for an extra kick. Winter always calls for a comfort dish like this. Thanks- Sam

  387. says

    Ironic that you would mention your wedding…
    I would would use the pan to make the soup we had as our first course at OUR wedding.. .and we have it every year on our anniversary and sometimes for Christmas.

    “Our soup” is a
    Champagne, Brie, and vidalia onion soup, garnished with rasberry coulis (Which we try to make look like hearts).”

    Outragesously good, fattening, and comforting.

  388. Sharon Gartley says

    Beautiful pan! I am craving vegetable soup at the moment so that’s probably the first thing I would cook in it.

    Going to make some vegetable soup now!


  389. Debra Meadow says

    I have been making delicious, nutritious bone broths lately – beef, chicken, turkey, you name it. Once I have the broth, it’s only a matter of adding whatever vegetables and meat bits strike my fancy. With a good broth you don’t even need much more in the way of seasoning – unless you want to.

  390. Vrie says

    Although this pan would most likely have to endure my endless rounds of different soups, I like to think that it secretly dreams of being used for my honey-caramel sauce. It’s day will come!

  391. Nicole says

    I would make up a big batch of beef and barley soup to warm up my family on a cold night after tobaganning.

    Thanks!Happy holidays to you!

  392. Darnel Aucoin says

    How about an old fashioned vegetable soup, tomatoe based with lots of root vegetables and cabbage. Delicious, healthy and warming on a very cold night.

  393. Kiersti says

    Butternut Squash Soup. Maybe with some curry. Oh man.. I have been on a Butternut Squash Rampage…can’t seem to get enough this time of year.

  394. Elin Anderwald says

    I would love to win that gorgeous pot! I would make a Butternut Squash soup with carmelized onions and apple, with a hint of nutmeg. I just happen to have a beautiful butternut squash left from my garden that I have been saving for a special occasion. Winning that pot would certainly be special!!

  395. Nicole says

    I would make Vegetable Soup with Quinoa, Pumpkin Soup with Coconut Milk, Butternut Squash and Apple soup, Green Soup with Ginger and Garlic, and Spicy Roasted Tomato Soup.

  396. Feiga Mazer says

    I have my set of All Clad for almost 20 years! They are the best pots. I would make yummy mushroom soup.

  397. Jennifer M says

    That saucepan is just the right size for my Saffron Risotto, among many other lovely creations! Btw, happy anniversary!!

  398. Madeline Leyda says

    I would make my chicken and cabbage soup to help keep me warm without adding sugar-high calories to my diet! Small amounts of shredded carrots and onion are added to enhance the flavor. Always use non-salt added chicken broth along with the broth made when simmering the chicken pieces!
    Mmmm-Mmmmm good!

  399. Shannon says

    The soup I seem to be making the most this winter is a lamb soup. My toddler loves it as does my husband. It has local organic stew lamb, whatever veggies I can get from the farmers market, and some fresh mint.

  400. audrey greenwood says

    Hi Elana,

    I love your website/recipes…I am a developmental pediatrician who also happens to be wheat sensitive as I get GI symptoms when I consume wheat based products. I have eat healthy, organic and love to cook…I literally cook everything for Passover,etc. I am very nutrition oriented with my patients…taking all the artificial junk out of their diets which helps immensely. I also love the Boulder connection with you as my son graduated from CU in aerospace and I have spent much wonderful time in Boulder….love staying at Chautauqua! and in fact, we were just there for my son’s wedding in Oct at the Boulderado…also fell in love with Bakti chai this last visit.

    What soups would I make with that pot? let me count the ways…one of my favorite is cauliflower soup…saute the onions, a bit of garlic, and the chopped cauliflower…add some chicken or veggie broth; when its done, I add grated parmesan and top with chives from the garden! yum! Just got a recipe for butternut squash soup with lots of ginger…that is next on my list to try.

    Happy Holidays,

  401. Dee says

    I would love to make my garden vegetable soup in this pot. Just thinking about that soup makes me want some! Good thing I have some in the freezer!

  402. Linda says

    Hot chocolate, of course! I love, love, love your blog and cookbook! Thank you for offering these amazing giveaways!

  403. says

    Happy Anniversary and congratulations to you and your husband! We have an all-clad saute pan that is wonderful and most often used in our kitchen, and a saucepan would be the perfect compliment to help us replace our sub-par ones.

    The first dish I’d make is probably the warming garlic ginger lemon soup I just made last night. So simple, delicious, and healthy, it is one recipe I anticipate making often, especially through the challenging Minnesota winter, which is something this born-and-raised Jersey girl is still getting used to. ;-)

    Thanks and take care!

  404. elisa says

    OOOhhhh Yum….I would make my cheesy cream of spinach soup. I also thow some kale in there and no one knows it!! : ) Thanks for offering these wonderful give-a-ways!!

  405. Lisa Rogers says

    I would love making soups period in this pot. It looks to be the perfect size! Although I have several very good GF soups I love to make from my quick savory chicken noodle to vietnamese curry chicken with rice stick noodles to a very rich mushroom stew! And this is the perfect time of year to be making soups. :)
    mushymom at yahoo dot com

  406. linda hibbitts says

    What a beautiful pot! It conjures of aromas of concocting a fabulous gluten free organic chicken noodle soup to warm my family during the winter months

  407. erin says

    This time of year, it would be definitely be used for spiced cider. My four boys and I love this after playing outdoors!

  408. Carol says

    I hear All-Clad pots amd pans are the best. I think I would make a delicious recipe of Minestrone Soup that has been my favorite soup for the past two years!!!

  409. Jennifer Sanders says

    I would LOVE one of these. I am phasing out all my nonstick and this would be perfect. I would make our favorite soup – creamy carrot curry! Thanks!

  410. says

    I would love an All-Clad saucepan to start off my collection! I have a good friend who uses nothing but All-Clad and she loves it. I love staying at her house because I get to play with the All-Clad pots and pans. So fun! The first thing I would make would be some chai tea. And then after a brief wash, I would have to start in on whatever came next – soup or a sauce of some sort. Can’t wait to try it! Thanks, Elana!

  411. Joey says

    What a joy it would be to be able to use a new pot. I am using all of the ones from my husband’s previous marriage and they are pretty old now. I’d love to be “all clad” with a new pot :))

  412. Sara says

    I would make lentil, split pea or white bean soup. All three are favorites, and sound great as I watch snow falling outside my window!

  413. Vicki Huennekens says

    We love cream of any kind (cauliflower, broccoli, asparagus & want to try squash) soup, it is easy & you can make it rich with cream for special or be good and use milk.

  414. Faye Gannon says

    What a wonderful give-a-way! Such a great product and so perfect for cooking these wonderful recipes you share with us!

  415. Ashley Vuckovich says

    I would make gluten free Haluski- cabbage and noodles to remind me of home (Pennsylvania) and I would make Quinoa porridge – my new favorite recipe!

    Crossing my fingers!

  416. says

    I have been really experimenting with veggie and vegan soups this season, and would love to give split pea a go again. I did it last year but I definitely think my attempt can be improved on!

  417. Pam Raymond says

    Great saucepan. I would use it all the time, but what soup would I make? Right now with cold season in full throttle, I like to take some chicken broth (either homemade stock saved in my freezer or some organic chicken broth from a carton) and add some freshly grated ginger, a few cloves of crushed garlic, and there you have your cold-buster broth.

  418. Laura says

    Hi Elana,
    Happy Anniversary! My husband and I were married Dec. 2nd, 1994 :-), so we both have December weddings!
    If I win the pot, I’ll be using it to make soups and to cook veggies.

  419. Dimple Shah says

    I need a new sauce pan badly! With it I would love to make homemade spiced chai eggnog. Btw, happy anniversary!!

  420. Amy D. says

    I am conjuring up an image of me cooking some warm, filling chicken tortilla soup–with lots of yummy corn, cilantro and a touch of lime–in that gorgeous pan. Mmmmm……

  421. Jenn Strilchuk says

    I love making my kids (all 6 of them!) a big batch of cashew mylk hot cocoa….homemade cashew mylk, coconut milk powder, raw cocoa powder, maple syrup….they love it! I need a new pan. My pans are old and need to be retired :)

  422. Chris Ossorio says

    If I win I would make my now 19 year old twins their favorite soup since they were little: Big Mina’s Meatball Soup with homemade meatballs, cilantro, carrots, and potatoes. They are both at college and ask for it when they come home even though they now both cook very well themselves. PS Big Mina was their nanny

  423. Charlotte Sanchez says

    What a great and versatile pan! This would be a great addition to every gluten free kitchen.

  424. Joan says

    My husband and my new favorite soup recipe is for salmon chowder. Made with carrots, celery, onion, crushed tomatoes and heavy cream. Delicious!

  425. Michelle H says

    I would make a delicious peppermint hot chocolate to warm my tummy and a delicious and always favorite veggie soup with cabbage and all those partically used bags of frozen veggies!

  426. AnnMarie Deis says

    Should I be fortunate enough to win the All-Clad sauce pan, I would make a paella-type soup. My husband had this amazing Cuban-based soup on our first wedding anniversary during a trip to Miami, and he absolutely fell in love with the flavors. I make the paella for him every year for our anniversary as we typically celebrate our anniversary as an observed holiday during a weekend night. However, I make the paella for our actual anniversary, no matter what night of the week it falls on. We’ve been married for seven years this past November. My four-year-old son absolutely LOVES this soup and gobbles it up whenever I make it.

    Happy holidays!
    AnnMarie Deis

  427. Emily Sunwell says

    I would use it for herbal tea infusions, hot chocolate, and most likely to heat up bone broth – all staples in our home this time of year. It would be great for reheating lots of things. Fabulous giveaway – thanks for all of your work and time.

  428. Sara M. says

    I would use this pot to make all the above recipes! They all sound wonderful on this cold winter day…

  429. Jen D says

    I would make the pumpkin ginger soup or any Thai soup, or red pepper something or other. Heck, I would make lots of soups. It’s cold out!

  430. Lisa H says

    This would certainly be a treat to have in the kitchen! I would use it every day I’m guessing…love to make my homemade, natural Chai tea!

  431. Kathy Ingram says

    I would make my favorite ‘white chili’ with turkey, white beans and corn.
    It is soooo good on these cold winter days.

  432. Judi Dundas says

    What a wonderful give away. I would make Tomato Basil soup. Would like to try a squash one also.
    Thanks for your great website, I get so many wonderful recipes.

  433. Barbara says

    I would use it for chicken stock/soup and also to make hot chocolate using coconut milk and cocoa, with a little agave to sweeten it. It’s quite good and so easy. Really good this time of year.

  434. Abbe Smith says

    Mmmmm, I would make the butternut squash soup. So warm and yummy this time of year. Maybe add some ginger for kick? And then curl up by the fireplace with a book and hot bowl of the soup.

  435. Melissa says

    Great giveaway, and Happy Anniversary to you and your husband! I would make my homemade hot chocolate and chai teas in this pot, without a doubt! It would also be great for cooking veggies, and reheating soups.

  436. Haley says

    Really, what wouldn’t I make in this pan? I think hot chocolate made with almond milk (and a little cinnamon) would definitely make the top of the list!

  437. courtney says

    I love making soup all year, but especially in the winter! It is cozy and filling and healthy. I love making black bean soup with cilantro and salsa and maybe a touch of sour cream for richness!

  438. says

    I would love an All-Clad pan! Whoever wins is going to be soooo happy! I would use it to make either a nice comforting pot of chili or some chicken soup.

  439. Deborah Binder says

    I enjoy getting your wonderful ideas for cooking. You inspire me to improvise! I would probably make a mushroom barley soup–one of my winter favorites! Thanks.

  440. Jennifer Wood says

    All-clad is really superior cookware. I have a 1 quart and use farberware for my 2 quart. I think I will give the one I win to my niece who is really embracing healthy whole food eating, and is an inspiring example of someone who has really turned her life around.

  441. says

    I am so excited about this giveaway. I am missing that medium sized saucepan. I only have a large soup pot and very small saucepan.

    What I am looking forward to making in the saucepan is my favorite quick dinner soup…. I saute some chopped onions, add some bite-sized turkey sausage, two bunches of chopped kale and cover everything with chicken broth and simmer until the kale is softened. YUMMY!

    Love your site and the wonderful service you do for all of us – thank you!

  442. Shelley says

    I would make a ground turkey and vegetable soup. It’s thick and hearty, full of nutrients to warm the soul as well as toes on a very snowy day!

  443. says

    Masala tea- i was recently in India and learned an amazing recipe for Masala tea. I usually make up a big pot on the weekend and have it ready to go for the whole week!

  444. Beth says

    I could make so many things in this pot, but the holidays totally have me inspired these days. Mulling spices are a constant presence on my stove these days, but I have been itching to try your Vegan Eggnog recipe!

  445. Molly says

    I would probably use this NOW for cider with cinnamon sticks and spices in it! It is the perfect time of year for it.
    I would LOVE this!!! I’m all about the long-lasting kitchen supplies

  446. Morgan says

    What kind of soup wouldn’t I make!! I would start with my all time favorite, cream of broccoli followed by a nice heart vegetable barley and then another one of my faces cashew carrot Ginger!!! Chai te would be great as well as some spiced apple cider! Oh the possibilities!!!

  447. Fran says

    Wow do I need pots. We moved in April and just recently finished unpacking all the boxes. NO POTS! The only conclusion is that the mover took that box. We have been buying good quality stainless steel pots from Estate sales but they don’t compare to the “good stuff” we lost.

    I buy all fresh veggies & steam every night so that’s what I’d use the pot for – nothing fancy – just day-to-day veggies, my favorite foods!

    Thanks for the giveaways!

    Fran in Tulsa

  448. suzanne says

    I have the BEST recipe for carrot soup that would be even more delicious cooked in this beautiful pan.

  449. elizabeth says

    I love soups and I make them all winter long. My favorite would have to be my mom’s recipe for Polish Pickle Soup. Sounds strange, but I’m telling you it is deeelish!

  450. Lisamarie (not Presley) says

    My absolute favorite soup is thai curry butternut squash soup made with squash, onion, ginger, red curry, palm sugar, squeeze of lime juice, fish sauce and coconut milk. OMG….this is so delicious. Garnished of course with the squash seeds toasted in a pan with some whatever spices you like. And as my little guy would say…..bon appetit let’s eat!

  451. Erin says

    I would definately be making your chai, but also the butternut squash soup, yum, one of my favorite’s!!

  452. Nancy Hawthorne says

    I love All-Clad and I could really use a saucepan for our hot cocoa and gluten free mac and cheese!

  453. Teresa A Smith says


    I would be thrilled to make my Buffalo Bill Chili that I have converted to be gluten free. My husband has been requesting I make it. This would be a perfect size!
    Merry Christmas to you and I am so very grateful for all you have done for the gluten free world out here.

  454. says

    Definitely carrot and coriander soup! It’s a classic in the UK, and because we don’t live there anymore, I make the homemade version here. What a beautiful pan!

  455. Sue Cotta says

    i just found your website and it rocks! I’ve just discovered i am at least gluten intolerant (not sure about celiac disease). I’ve been at a loss to figure out this flour thing with all my Christmas baking – thank you to the almond and coconut flour recipes – yay! I would definitely make the butternut squash soup in this new pot as we had the BEST organic crop this year (had great compost). The squash as orange as i’ve ever seen it and is so sweet. Mother nature at her best.
    Thanks for such a great website!

  456. says

    i would either give the pot to my gourmet friend b/c she really wants one for christmas OR i would keep it for myself to make the kiddos gourmet hot chocolate, myself some spicy hot chocolate…all sorts of soups like chicken tortilla soup or try some new soups!

    thanks for the giveaway!!

  457. Cheryl Brookman says

    If I were to make soup over the holidays I would make:

    Cauliflower Ranch Cheddar soup with pancetta croutons.

  458. Cindy Scott says

    This is an awesome pan! If I got the pan it would be for my workplace. We only have a 1 quart pan and it is too small for all of us at lunchtime.

  459. says

    I recently (6 months) had to start eating GF. It has been a challenge to say the least, since most GF products out there are high carb and I am a diabetic. I love to cook and bake, so I’m always looking for new recipes or converting my favorites!
    I would welcome some new cookware… now what to cook….. maybe some broccoli and cheese soup, vegetable stew, homemade applesauce, quinoa with roasted tomatoes and parm…..
    May I say, “Happy Anniversary” to You and your Hubby! I’ll be married 28 years on January 15th! We’ve been together 31 years!!! I’ve known him for 38 yrs!!! First official date… a movie with our families… he was 13, I was 10!

  460. says

    What I would make in this new pot = Venison/Carrot soup with a good amount of roasted cumin seed…as far as a beverage = I’m due to make some CHAI with extra Cardamom & dried blueberries or dried cherries. my Pampered Chef pot is on its’ way out, albeit, I make sure to always use a wooden spoon.

  461. says

    Hi Elana
    Oh, how do I decide which soup to make first?
    I think I’ll make a yummy savory oatmeal as a first, “breaking-it-in”, meal.
    The recipe is very similar to Chinese Rice Congee, but instead of using rice, I use steel cut oats (because of their higher nutritional profile).
    Other ingredients are eggs, green onions, fried shallots, soya sauce or tamari sauce, toasted sesame oil, salt and pepper to taste. And, if desired, either shredded/ minced chicken, minced pork or thinly sliced fish like cod or mackerel.
    Keeping my fingers crossed!

  462. Joni Roberts says

    I would make a buffalo steak stew! But maybe you can include a recipe in with the pot when I win ;-)

  463. Lindsay Phillips says

    Dearest All-Clad saucepan….

    I would like to make a Chai Latte with Almond Milk with you. Final product… a great big hug in a mug. YUM!

  464. TZel says

    I have been obsessed with homemade hot chocolate lately but do not have a good pan to make it in. This would be so much better!
    Thank you!

  465. Kate says

    I would make chili – we just had a great snowstorm here, and it’s got me wanting hearty, warming types of food… Thanks for the opportunity!

  466. Theresa Picoriello says

    *********************************** Happy Anniversary*****************I wish you many more to come. I would make my special recipe Potato soup. it looks to be the perfect saucepan to make chile gravy for enchiladas. and so many other delicious recipes. i would definiely put it to good use. Thanks for the chance.

  467. Ann H. says

    I will start with a gf minestrone. And then make applesauce. And perhaps some toffee or caramels. And then some more soup. Oh, will this pan be used and loved!

  468. says

    This sauce pan is dreaming of all the hotapple cider, butternut squash soup, Rustic Irish Potato and Cabbage soup and breakfast grains that it could ever hold in my kitchen! What a great giveaway, and Happy Happy Anniversary! I hope you celebrate it well!

  469. Heather W says

    I would use this fantastic pot to cook up homemade Turkey Soup!!! (I really needed a large pot this year for Thanksgiving … I made my very first Gluten Free Turkey but struggled with a big enough pot for leftover soup)


  470. Lynne says

    Oh, what a lovely pot! (And thoughtful give-away!). If I had it, I’d have to do my soup and beverage favorites. Would love to make my “Curried Chicken Chowder,” sprinkled with a touch of nutmeg (with my homemade Golden Flaxseed wafers, spread with cream cheese and my homemade cranberry almond chutney on the side). And for my dessert beverage? My warmed Bourbon Vanilla Chai Eggnog, with cinnamon stick for stirring (and a semi-sweet chocolate-dipped almond shortbread cookie for nibbling!). Altogether, a very satisfying, comforting meal on cold wintery nights…nurturing and nourishing to body and soul. A little bit goes a long way…plus, all the lovely ingredients come together in the pot while cooking to scent your home deliciously! Family (and neighbors) will gather round and want to know when “soup’s on”!

  471. Marlene Kuntz says


  472. says

    I will be making the Egg Nog (smile)…without doubt! My best friend and I recently embraced a raw and vegan eating preference. With the holiday season, I was sooooo excited to learn of a vegan Egg Nog!!! I quickly bring to mind the smells and the tasty spice of one of my favorite drinks and to know that I will be having it, well causes me to feel like a giggly 5 year old. Thank you!!

  473. Sally Brown says

    Happy Anniversary!! My husband and I have been married for 33 years in a few days. God is good to give us such men. My husband likes my borscht the best so this pan would be used for that the most. (at least during the colder seasons)

  474. Cheri says

    I would love to add this saucepan to my cookware. I love making the soup recipes, they are delicious. Keep them coming.

  475. says

    I would love this pot! I don’t have anything like it in my kitchen,
    and it would be a great addition.
    I would use it for some of my favorite winter hot drinks to serve when
    have friends over, mexican hot
    chocolate and hot spiced apple cider, and for some favorite winter soups
    like butternut squash, smoked turkey sausage with kale and potatoes,
    and other vegetable soup. Thanks for such a great giveaway.

  476. Linda says

    Terrific give-away and would make a great Xmas gift to myself! I make lots of different soups in the winter but my first choice would be a roasted butternut squash and leek soup.

  477. Anita Z says

    I would love to make my tomato coconut soup in a new pot! I am an avid soup maker and usually make a pot once or twice a week. It would also be fun to try your coconut chicken thai soup. sounds yummy.Probably a meal in the making over the holidays. thanks for your amazing website!

  478. says

    And Happy Anniversary!!!!!!!

    Wishing you many more. Hmmm speaking of anniversaries I thought of something else I would make. My husband and I share a wonderful garden and we grow these great buttercup squash. They make great soup. Sometimes a small batch is quick and this pan would be perfect!

    Pat (wasn’t intending 2 entries…but had to wish you well for your anniversary!)

  479. Nicholas Hassell says

    I dont know if there is a gluten free recipe for Teriyaki sauce, but that is what I would make.

  480. Amy Reid says

    My favorite fennel, leek, and potato soup with homemade chicken broth as the base. Mmmm, I think I’ll make some this weekend!

  481. Amanda Hutchins says

    I recently managed to destroy my cheap Ikea sauce pan and now my funky little kitchen is sadly missing a small-ish pot for making everything from butternut squash soup to spaghetti sauce (for gluten free pasta, of course) to the occasional mug of hot chocolate with almond milk and honey. Yum.

  482. Keri says

    This saucepan would be christened with a batch of my freshly blended masala chai, made with hazelnut milk. Mmmmm.

  483. candice becker says

    I would make everything in the all-clad pot but especially chai as I’m working on the perfect blend!

  484. Lauren says

    This pot is great for a girl like me who is constantly working in the kitchen! I’d probably use this to make coconut milk vegetable stew for the cold months coming up, or a nice pot of rich beef marrow bone broth.

  485. Sharon says

    I’ve been very into kale potato sausage soup lately with a little coconut milk swirled in at the end!

  486. Julie says

    Hi Elana,
    What an exciting giveaway! I would make hot mulled cider in it. My son has been asking for apple cider like we have on the holidays.

    We love your blog and your book!


  487. Arlene Beal says

    I would make a roasted tomato and roasted red pepper soup with my veggies straight from the garden.

  488. Emily says

    Holy moly do people want to win this pan!!! I do too :) I would use it to heat up my healing beef broth of course :-)

    Congratulations on your 15 years of marriage!!! What a very special day today is. Hope you get to celebrate together :) Xoxoxo

  489. Diane says

    Hi Elana,
    We are moving to the east coast from the west coast in January and I would use this wonderful pan to try one of your soup recipes for our new home.
    Happy Anniversary!

  490. christie says

    I would love this pan to be able to whip up a quick batch of my famous homemade turkey rice soup. I have been dying to try All-Clad forever! This would be a great starter!!

  491. Karin Wilmoth says

    Winter, when the chill finally settles in Coastal Calif., is when I do some of my best cooking. I spend mornings chopping vegies, and pre-roasting the last night’s chicken bones to make stock from for the day’s soup. It doesn’t really matter what it ends up being. It is the all-day simmered broth, full of flavor that brings the soup to life. A great pan like the All-Clad would make our favorite Pizza Soup (all your favorite pizza toppings in a soup)even better.

  492. says

    Ha! I’ve just been shopping around for good prices on an All-Clad saute pan! We are slowing converting our old wedding calphalon (just a year older than yours) to All-Clad. It has started to warp and some of the pieces are non-stick. The sauce pans are a little further down the priority list than the skillet and saute, but winning a pot would certainly help!

  493. Marcia Renert says

    I would make a big pot of my Aunt Goldye’s vegetable soup. As my uncle would say,
    “nectar of the Gods.”

  494. Mary says

    What kind of soup would I make? All those that I have not yet tried!!! I have only recently begun to make soup on a regular basis and I find it a cozy, warm and tasty way to eat a healthy variety of, allowed, food.

  495. Dianne Haupt says

    Sounds like the perfect pan to make a decaf soy mocha. Over low heat, melt some chocolate disks with a small amount of soy milk. Add more soy milk to taste and if feeling adventurous, a sprinkle of espresso powder. When warm, wisk or froth — enjoy!

  496. Cheryl says

    Hi Elana,
    I would definitely make your hot chocolate recipe in this saucepan. Your recipes are great!

  497. says

    Asparagus Soup! Or, the Colonial Williamsburg King’s Arms Tavern Peanut Soup! They tie and I would most likely host a soup sampler night and make the asparagus first and turn to the peanut after! :-)

  498. says

    Oh it would have to be my favorite corn and green chile chowder! I love the All-Clad pieces I have … just slowly building up my collection!

  499. says

    Happy Anniversary! It is snowing here today so I would make a thick and tasty beef stew in that beautiful pot. But, we would have to give it a quick wash out when the stew was finished to make hot chocolate for dessert. I just received my unbleached almond flour in the mail and am really looking forward to some baking. Thank you for creating so many dairy free and tapioca free recipes!

  500. Sarah L. says

    I’d be warming up with a cup of your soothing chai if I won this pot. Yum yum, the perfect winter bevvy!

  501. says

    Happy anniversary!

    That must be quite the pot considering all of the work you put it through.

    I would make a butternut squash soup with that pot. Home made soup of course :)

  502. Linda says

    Thanks for the fantastic opportunity… and it’s nice to hear about the longevity of these beautiful pans!

    Keeping it simple, I would say chicken soup, and for fun rice and lentils get tossed in. I’m looking forward to discovering more favorites this winter!

  503. ScottMGS says

    Well, hot chocolate would be popular at my house but I’d probably spice it up with cinnamon and clove. I had a great honey roasted pumpkin soup last night that I might try to recreate, too.

  504. Melissa says

    I would make potato soup in this pot. There’s nothing more warming than potato soup on these cold winter days! YUM!!!

  505. Lynne says

    Happy Anniversary, may you and your hubby be blessed with many, many more ! What a wonderful giveaway. And as for what to fix in it….let me count the ways….soups, chai tea, hot chocolate, etc….

  506. Angela Weir says

    I would love to win this pot! I would love to make butternush squash soup, one of our fall/winter favorites! I could also make hot chocolate, heat up my home made chicken broth, ect! The possibilities are endless!

    Thank you so much for hosting!

  507. Maureen Gecht-Silver says

    If I won the pot I would make a spicy vegetarian chili that includes mushrooms, and a variety of other vegetables. I substitute quinoa for bulgar to make it gluten free. A good friend who has since moved to Pennsylvania gave me this recipe because it is one of her favorites. So in addition to being delicious, it reminds me of her when I make it.

  508. Renae Lynn says

    I’m in Minnesota, and this time of year I almost always have a pot of soup on the stove. I would make roasted squash soup with pumpkin seed pesto, or bean and ham, or chicken vegetable soup with this gorgeous All Clad sauce pan.

  509. Renee says

    Hot chocolate! I would warm some milk in the pot and add in some broken up pieces of dark chocolate with a pinch of chili pepper for heat – mmmmm.

  510. Felicia says

    Ohhhhh, I would LOVE, LOVE to win your All-Clad pot! Tis the season for comfort food and a wonderful soup fixed in this awesome pot would be a loaded potatoe soup – YUM, YUM!!! Thanks, as always, for awesome opportunities to win great things on your site as well as your fabulous recipes that you continue to share with us!! Keep it up!!! Merry Christmas!!!

  511. Tracy Haughton says

    I’m learning more about Aryuvedic cooking for gut healing. I’d love to use the sauce pan to make Kitchari.

  512. Kris says

    I make soups once or twice a week in the winter, so I would use this a lot! Tonight I’m making a curried squash soup and will make chili this weekend. Last week I made a delicious black bean soup and I think the ingredient that made it so yummy was a couple tablespoons of cider vinegar.

    Thanks for all your creative healthy recipes and ideas. I love your blog.

  513. Abigail says

    I would make pumpkin curried soup.

    I saute chicken until browned, add it to the sauce pan. Then I add chicken broth and pureed pumpkin in equal amounts. Add curry paste or powdered curry to taste. Then saute onions and serrano peppers and add to it and let it simmer!

  514. joe says

    I would make my classic yellow split pea soup….everybody loves it. what a wonderful prize to win…I could really use it as I have too big or too small but nothing just right!

  515. Anu says

    I make a really great baked potato soup. I would make that if I won. Thanks for having the giveaway.

  516. Joan Seliger Sidney says

    Boy, if I’d win your all-clad give-away,I’d use it for my incredible butternut squash-yam-carrot soup.


  517. Ruth says

    All-Clad, All-Clad, how do I love thee All-Clad.
    Elena’s Recipes, Elena’s Recipes, how do I love thee Elena’s Recipes.
    (Sung to the tune of “Fish Heads”)

  518. Christina says

    vegetable soup. with lots of parsnips and sweet potatoes because I loooovvve those. And I love to make soup!


  519. Andrea says

    If I won this pot I would make a simple vegetable and beef soup…I might even puree it so the kids will eat it! :)

  520. says

    I’d make Hot & Sour soup! A favorite with variable ingredients including chicken or vege stock, eggs, wood ear (mushroom), lily buds, … really anything handy … and a soy, vinegar, hot sauce dash. Warming, both from temperature and seasoning!

  521. says

    HI Elana! ‘Tis the season for Glogg! So once kids are in bed, I would do make this for a quiet Christmas Eve night with my husband. And serve the leftovers on Christmas day post-coffee & baileys! (or cut recipe in half for a smaller quantity)
    1 26-oz Bottle Red Wine
    1 cup Brandy
    1 12-oz bottle of beer
    1 orange thinly sliced with rind on
    1 slice of lemon
    3/4 cup white sugar
    1 cup raisins
    1/3 slivered almonds
    3 cinnamon sticks
    1 Tbsp whole cloves
    Place all in All-Clad and bring to boil then bring down to a low, slow simmer for 1 1/2 hours covered (while you get kids ready for bed, stories read and tucked in for the night). Strain hot Glogg through a stainer before serving. Happy Holidays to all and Enjoy the All-Clad!

  522. Juleeanna says

    My nona’s minestrone soup is a favorite around our house and would be simmered to perfection in a new all clad pan. We own 2 all clad pans and both of them were gifts from my husband to me for a birthday or anniversary. We have been married for 6 years now and the pans are holding up well as we also put them to good use-thanks to many of your recipes. We don’t have to eat GF but enjoy using almond and coconut flour for taste and other health issues.

  523. Elizabeth King says

    I would love to win this wonderful pan. I would make my Cauliflower, sweet potato & curry soup in it or my sausage, lentil & rice soup.

  524. RH says

    The weather in Seattle is all wan and drear, which makes for a perfect evening of tucking in with some humble miso soup.

  525. says

    I would love this pot so much! What an incredible giveaway. I roasted all my pumpkins from my garden and have been making lots of pumpkin soup variations. I think my kids are going to turn into pumpkins! I loved reading ideas from the others.

  526. says

    Terrific giveaway! I would use it to make my Yia-yia’s (Greek grandmother) avgolomeno soup (chicken, lemon, egg).

    Happy Holidays!

  527. says

    I love this Mexican Chocolate Fondue recipe courtesy of Emeril Lagasse. It is slightly spicy, (just enough to taste and not bite you) and the coffee base adds a rich flavor to the chocolate while not overpowering it. This recipe is perfect for the All-Clad pan.

    2 cups coffee

    1 vanilla bean, split and scraped

    3 cinnamon sticks, preferably Ceylon

    1 cup milk

    1 cup heavy cream

    1 teaspoon ground chipotle chili powder

    8 ounces Mexican chocolate, chopped (recommended: Ibarra)

    8 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped

    Heat the coffee, vanilla beans and seeds, and cinnamon sticks in a medium saucepan over high heat. Bring to a boil and continue to cook until the liquid has reduced to about 1/4 cup, about 10 minutes.

    Add the milk, cream and chipotle powder to the pan, lower the heat to medium, and bring to a gentle simmer. Place the Mexican chocolate and the semisweet chocolate in a medium-sized bowl. Strain the milk and cream mixture over the chocolate, and stir, using a whisk to melt the chocolates. It may be necessary to place the bowl over a double boiler to ensure that all of the chocolate will melt smoothly.

    Place the chocolate in a fondue pot over a low flame to keep warm, and serve with assorted dipping ingredients.

  528. Jenny says

    If I won this All Clad pan, I would make my own chai tea from scratch. I would let it heat nice a slow to really infuse with the spices. The perfect beverage to have first thing in the morning before going to play in the snow! Thank you Elana!

  529. Kelsey says

    I alternate making Italian vegetable soup and Vegetable Chili every week…it is the easiest and fastest way to assure I get vegetables during the week days!

  530. Brenda Perkins says

    I would make some chicken tortilla soup!! Thanks for the awesome website! and Happy anniversary!

  531. Judy Darden says

    I accidentally got your name from a lady at Whole Foods last Christmas. She was checking me out and told me she was a celiac person and what she was baking. Your recipes have changed my life! They are so delicious and healthy! I even gave my natural doctor (Dr. Rober Rakowski in Clear Lake TX) your flaxseed bread recipe. They don’t eat bread and he has even made pizza out of the bread! He travels all over the world and teaches doctors and takes it with him everywhere he goes!

    Thank you so much for the delicious recipes. I would make everything in this pot. I would steam vegetables, make soup, sauces, rice, beans – everything! It is the perfect size! I would love to have one since I am always trying to figure out what pot to buy. Thank you so much for your give aways and all of your work in perfecting the most delicious recipes!!

  532. Kathy says

    If I win this sauce pan I would use it to make my favorite holiday drink, peppermint hot chocolate. Thank you, Elana.

  533. Emily says

    I make a fantastic soup that would be perfect for this pot: chickpea and veggie soup: veggies stock simmered all afternoon, roasted veggies added in toward the the end. Always good with a a sprinkling of cheese when ready to eat.

  534. says

    Ooooh, I neeeeeeeed this pot. The only one I have of this size is an old non-stick thing and the non-stick coating is starting to become un-stuck! I know…. not good. First thing I would use it for is to make a big batch of ACD-friendly, primal egg nog.

  535. Jamee says

    I would definitely use this for making the chocolate ice cream! I need a special pot for only my sweet dessert recipes supplied by you. :)

  536. Golden says

    Soup, soup and more soup! I am working hard to try to find soups that don’t contain any grain or beans.

  537. Caroline Bull says

    What wouldn’t I make in that pot!!!!! I would make a lot of my sister’s turkey-veggie-cheese soup. I’d make mulled wine. I just got a new recipe for a sausage-spinach soup – Id make that. I could see that becoming my “for everything” pot.

  538. Katie says

    My kiddos LOVE homemade hot cocoa…that would probably win as most made. The options are endless! What a great give-away. Happy Anniversary!

  539. Allegra Heidelinde says

    Posole, is the soup I’d make. The traditional New Mexican soup served to welcome in the New Year. Yummy, warming, unique.

  540. A. Law says

    ‘Tis the season for hot mulled cider, so that’s what I would make in the lovely sauce pan.

  541. Amy White says

    For the sauce pan, I would most def. make my family recipe for veg beef soup. I go out and pick all of the fresh veggies from my garden (corn, potato’s, okra, and lots of tomato’s, green beans, onions) and let it cook all day. Best soup EVER!

  542. Roberta Thomas says

    I would love to add this pan to my collection. One of our favorite recipes to use during the winter is Hot Cacoa. We use 1 c of any type of milk, 2 Tbs. of raw cacoa, 1-2 Tbs. of agave, cinnamon and a splash of cream is what we like. Yum. That’s what we would use it for.

  543. Karen Marshall says

    I would make dairy free hot chocolate for the kiddos. We have to make it the old fashioned way because the quick and easy hot chocolate packets all have dairy, which we can’t have due to allergies. But then again, the old fashioned way makes a much better hot chocolate. ;-D

  544. says

    Happy Anniversary! I would make homemade hot chocolate..the rich creamy kind! For soups I am really enjoying posole! Just a couple of weeks ago I accidentally dropped my 2qt pan and is jostled loose the handles. Ugh! (tile floors!) This would be wonderful!

  545. Sara Jean says

    I can’t believe an all clad is on the giveaway list. I’d love it! I don’t have a pan that size and would love to use it for the sauces I make regularly … sort of a no-brainer, I guess, but oh well. I also make hot chocolate every a.m. so that would be lovely!

    Thanks, Elana.

  546. Cheryl D says

    Happy Anniversary, Elana!
    Homemade soups are a part of my daily diet using any and all vegetables I can find. I’ve gone through some less expensive pots with the heavy use and would be thrilled to finally have a good pan to keep me excited about eating right and being a good example to others through dietary restrictions.

  547. Marci McGarvey says

    A new pan!!!! how awsome that would be to make my Turkey & Noodle soup with Schar noodles that I just found out about. I have been looking for noodles for 3 years, can’t wait to try them in my new pan!!!!
    I love all your recipes you are a great help for the GF community.

  548. says


    baked potato chowder (with local grassfed milk and cheese)

    coconut hot chocolate

    If I won the all clad pot I would make my father’s scrumptious Sicilian tomato sauace. It is a wonderfully light, yet hearty sauce cooked no longer than 30 minutes and infused with garlic and basil and extra virgin olive oil. Yum…I’m getting hungry just thinking about it! Ciao!

    My version of stone soup is to take whatever vegetables I have and cook them in water drained from previously cooked vegeatbles. I add a variety of herbs I have on hand and add some Braggs liquid amino.
    I really enjoy your site. I think it is the best. I would like to know if you could share what your “typical” daily diet is. Additionally, I would like to know what Vitamins you take. I value your wisdom.

    We love soup, any time of year! I just tried your recipe for creamy cashew broccoli soup. YUM! I’d also want to make this delicious wild rice and mushroom soup from my mom!

    Creamy cauliflower, asparagus, tomato, carrot fennel, lentil, split pea, mung bean! So many soups for so many days of winter…. We just moved to Vail and so I’ve been seriously getting my soup on. Not to mention all the après-ski warmers like Irish Cream-spiked hot chocolate! Thanks, Elana!

    I would make a cardamon & red pepper soup! It is my favorite soup for this season and it pairs very well with your gluten free sandwhich bread. Delicious!

  555. Jody Engstrom says

    What a beautiful pan! I would use it to make my creamy broccoli avocado soup and my coconut chocolate pudding. yum!

    Coconut Chicken Soup from your blog — YUM!!!
    Also Lentil Soup from Laurel’s Kitchen Recipes.
    Both are staples b/c they’re so delicious and so easy.
    And I plan to look up a recipe for Mulligatawny Soup — I had one at a local restaurant, and it was fantastic!

    I’m in the process of replacing all my anodized aluminum cookware with stainless steel and enamel and iron. I have one piece all All Clad so far, and I love it!!!

    If I won the great pan from All-Clad, I think I would first use it to make a big pot of gluten-free vegetable soup.

    I would like to make mock potato soup or broc.and cheese in it.
    Thank You for this contest

    My family is on the GAPS diet which consists on mainly soup. Three times a day, we eat it homemade. If I were to win this lovely pan, I would without a doubt be making more soup because with 11 people in the family, one pot of soup is simply not enough. Thank you for this wonderful oppurtunity. I hope I’m lucky!

    I would make potato and leek soup. Or I would use this pan to make my son and I’s oatmeal in the mornings. Your recipe’s are wonderful and I love doing your DIY projects!

    I make a wonderful Coconut Milk Hot Chocolate! With dark chocolate this is a wonderful treat on a chilly night, and yes we get chilly nights in San Francisco too!

    This really is a perfect soup pot. I love to make soup. I think this pot is calling for potato and leek soup topped with a little cheese and nice big piece of crusty gf bread or some of your almond flour biscuits. Yum. Seeing all these soup ideas put me in the mood to cook. Happy Anniversary! May you have many, many more happy years together. Congratulations!

    First of all – Happy Anniversary, Elana!

    I would make butternut squash soup or coconut chicken soup (we tried Elana’s recipe recently and all loved it!)

    What would I make? Smoking Bishop! It’s an old English mulled brandy and red wine concoction that requires perfectly distributed low heat so that you don’t burn off the alcohol. This All Clad saucepan would be just the thing! Take oranges, cut them in halves, stud with cloves and sprinkle heavily with brown sugar. Broil until bubbly and muddle them in a saucepan with two bottles of red wine and a cup of brandy. Heat thoroughly, but don’t boil. Serve in mugs. When I made this for my pretty uptight family one Christmas, they magically became warm and silly. It was the best Christmas ever!
