A Gorgeous Stainless Steel Double Oven Giveaway (Time’s Up!)

Time’s up!

The winner of the LG Stainless Steel Double Oven has been chosen and notified. We are just waiting for them to be officially confirmed, I will announce the winner as soon as I can! :) Thanks so much for participating!


Today, my days are still mixed up from the long weekend, but I’m so glad it’s Friday, and I’m so thrilled to share this giveaway with you! I’ve got a brand new, stainless steel double oven range from LG to give away.

One Kevin & Amanda winner will receive their choice of either a Stainless Steel Electric Double Oven Range ($1699 value) or the Stainless Steel Gas Double Oven Range ($1899 value). Yes, it’s true!


Here’s a look at the Freestanding Stainless Steel Electric Double Oven Range.

  • 6.7 cu. ft. Total Oven Capacity
    (2.3 cu. ft. / 4.4 cu. ft.)
  • Tallest Upper Oven (6″)
  • InfraGrill™ Broiler (Upper Oven)
    LG’s first infrared heating element gets your oven to broil temperature more quickly and cuts 30% off your cooking time on common items like hamburgers and chicken breasts. Infrared cooking – which uses the same technology as premium outdoor grills – also allows your food to be juicier than traditional thermal cooking.
  • True Convection System (Lower Oven)
    – Convection Bake
    – Convection Roast
  • 5 Radiant Cooktops with Warming Zone

It’s also got a “proof” setting for baking bread, and a “keep warm” setting for holding food warm while everything else gets ready. Love these extra features.


The smooth cooktop on the electric range is durable and super easy to keep clean. So far I’ve only had to use hot water and a dish rag. At first I was worried about scratching a smooth cooktop — I’m shaking my pans around constantly. But this cooktop feels durable and so far there’s not a scratch on it. And I’m in love with this beautiful bright blue interior!


The electric double oven comes in stainless steel as well as black or white — the winner may pick their color. The Gas oven comes in Stainless Steel.


And here’s the Freestanding Stainless Steel Gas Double Oven Range.

  • 6.1 cu. ft. Total Oven Capacity
    (2.2 cu. ft. / 3.9 cu. ft.)
  • Convection Conversion
  • Convection Bake
  • Convection Roast
  • 5 Sealed Gas Cooktop Burners
  • Premium Stainless Steel Finish
  • Brilliant Blue Interior
  • SuperBoil™ Burner
    Spend less time waiting and more time cooking. The powerful Superboil™ 17,000 BTU Burner brings water and other liquids to a boil quickly.


The winner may pick their choice of gas or electric, and you can visit the links above for more information on each range.


How To Enter:

1. To enter, simply leave me a comment in the comments section of this post. What’s the first thing you’d make in your new oven? Do you have a favorite recipe you’d love to try? Tell me all about it, I love hearing what everyone’s making! :)

2. Please see official rules HERE.

3. Giveaway provided by LG. LG will cover the costs associated with shipping out and installing the oven.

4. Want another chance to win? Picky-Palate.com has another LG Double Oven Range to give away, so go over there and enter too!

5. Contest ends Monday July 11th at 8pm CST. The winner will be chosen randomly by the team at LG and notified by email.


Good luck!!!

What a great giveaway! First of all I would make a sour cream coffee cake. It would be nice to have an oven that actually bakes at the correct temperature. No more setting my oven to 50 degrees lower and making sure the thermometer is placed just right. Then I would make a pork shoulder for my family, they love BBQ. I love your blog and especially the dogs!

jeannine rubillo July 8, 2011 at 6:11 am

My husband and girls pretty much live on chicken, (it is the only thing I am good at not cooking and not drying out.) They are good sprots about it but with an oven like that I may be able to expand my culinary menu.

Lynn M July 8, 2011 at 6:15 am

Elizabeth Hill July 8, 2011 at 6:16 am

Martina Fegan July 8, 2011 at 6:16 am

We have been looking at double ovens for a long time – have a growing family (8 grandchildren!) and family events usually involve 18-20 people. A double oven would be awesome! The first thing I would make would probably be Pioneer Woman’s cinnamon buns! Or maybe cupcakes, or lasagna, or zuchini bread! – Decisions, decisions!

marcia July 8, 2011 at 6:18 am

my stove is only has two burners working and the oven only half works===i would try this chicken bacon and potatoes in one oven and a georgia peach pound cake in the other.

RaChelle July 8, 2011 at 6:18 am

Meredith July 8, 2011 at 6:18 am

As a side note, thank you sooooooo much for your camera and photography information. I just bought a Canon Rebel T3i yesterday and couldn’t sleep with excitement, so I was devouring all of your photography tips at 3am! Thank you so much–very inspiring!

SteffiWeffi July 8, 2011 at 6:19 am

Marrisha July 8, 2011 at 6:23 am

Swoon! This is amazing! My husband and I are getting ready to remodel our kitchen and this would be the perfect addition to replace my current small wall oven. I’d bake my Grandmother’s chocolate spice drop cookies that my husband adores, since my current oven can’t fit a regular sized cookie tray. I’d also bake him a pumpkin pie, since he’s begging haha. A turkey would round out my first baking experience, since I’ve never made one and have one in my freezer begging to be baked. The perfect excuse to have a dinner party!

Mary Jane July 8, 2011 at 6:23 am

The first thing I would make in this oven would probably be a baked pasta of some sort!! I love lasgna, baked ziti…or any other type of pasta. In the second oven I would bake some wonferful cookies, I am a cookies fanatic!!

Laurie Ann July 8, 2011 at 6:25 am

What a gorgeous oven — I’m swooning over here! The first thing I would make is your pulled pork recipe — {I’m making it tomorrow, and I can’t wait} and for dessert I’m just dyin’ to try the New Orleans pralines you just posted. Thanks for turning me into a southern cook — I’m sort of new to Alabama and love the southern fare.

CH July 8, 2011 at 6:25 am

Oh, my goodness, I’d make two things at once just because I couold. My tiny kitchen needs this double oven! I’d probably make lasagna and some nice, crusty bread.

Jey July 8, 2011 at 6:25 am

I would make some pie. Blueberry and strawberry/rhubarb. But I think trying to make boeuf bourguignon again would be fun too. :)

Kathi Malin July 8, 2011 at 6:28 am

I am so making bread if I win the oven….would love to have a double oven!!

bakingblonde July 8, 2011 at 6:28 am

I have been wanting to make homemade buns for ever and with my grandma visiting next month I would LOVE to bake some up with her in my new oven! AND make her chocolate chip cookies at the same time! OMG, seriously, i have dreamed of a double oven since I was 4 helping my grandma bake in her kitchen.

Lynne July 8, 2011 at 6:28 am

Hmmmm… In the oven, probably garlic bread (don’t use the oven as much in the summer), but on the stovetop, I’m pretty sure I’d saute mushrooms and peppers for grilled stead :-) What a fantastic stove!! We just bought an LG refridgerator, and this would match perfectly!

Patti July 8, 2011 at 6:29 am


Laura July 8, 2011 at 6:29 am

Allison Brown July 8, 2011 at 6:32 am

Wow! It would be a really tough decision for me because I love to cook and bake but it would probably be a cake- maybe your best chocolate cake ever, a Paula Deen pound cake or strawberry cake or maybe a ooey, gooey butter cake! I would be so excited to win that I would probably bake them all!

Morgan M July 8, 2011 at 6:32 am

I would make a huge pan of cheesy enchiladas! Thanks for the awesome giveaway, Kevin and Amanda!!!

robyn pipkin July 8, 2011 at 6:37 am

Chocalate chip cookies!

Tif July 8, 2011 at 6:37 am

One of my fondest memories of growing up is baking with my grandmother- she was famous for two things, her fudge and cheesecake. It was seen as a huge compliment if she asked you to be her baking partner- especially for the cheesecake. It was a delicate process that allowed for no jumping, twirling, running… all the things an 8 year old me did. When my grandmother died, we thought the recipe had died with her. Just recently, almost 15 years later, my brother found a notecard in my grandmother’s handwriting… THE RECIPE! I have been given the recipe (since I was the only one who has actually “made” the cake) but I am afraid of my oven cooking it too uneven. So my first use for the oven? The most amazing cheesecake, literally sent from heaven.

Jewels July 8, 2011 at 6:38 am

I would bake a strawberry/apple crisp and ribs in the oven!

Ashley Lynn July 8, 2011 at 6:38 am

What would I cook? Oh that’s easy! A huge delicious New York cheesecake for my family! Mmmmm!

Beth July 8, 2011 at 6:39 am

I would bake a vanilla cake with vanilla buttercream frosting!

Tiffany July 8, 2011 at 6:39 am

What a wonderful giveaway – thanks!!!

Claudia Curtin July 8, 2011 at 6:40 am

Good morning~~what a wonderful treat to wake up to this give-away! My mother always made beautiful pies, and now I make them as well. Not quite as perfect as hers, but close. When we had a convection oven many moons ago, the pies were so perfectly golden that I would love to have that option again. Have a blessed day.

Vicki July 8, 2011 at 6:40 am

The first thing I would bake is my mom’s rhubarb dessert. It’s been my favorite since I was a little girl (a long time)!!!

Bree Shill July 8, 2011 at 6:41 am

Kristi Bradley July 8, 2011 at 6:44 am

What couldn’t I make in this oven??? It is AWESOME!

Man, I am hungry just thinking about all that.

Krystie July 8, 2011 at 6:44 am

Awww! I would love this. My poor, pitiful oven now is so small it barely holds one baking sheet at a time (seriously, I can only have one thing at a time in my oven and it better be small). Oh, the things I could do with this oven!

Kasie July 8, 2011 at 6:55 am

I would make a loaf of bread in one oven and dinner in the other. I like to serve rolls or garlic bread with certain meal, but my single oven usually throws a kink in my plans.

Sandy July 8, 2011 at 6:55 am

I would make ANOTHER Amanda Best Ever Chocolate Cake!

Susan Fennell July 8, 2011 at 6:55 am

Awesome giveaway and I so love my LG washer so I think I would love this double oven and how great it would be to have two ovens. I would make a cheesecake my family’s favorite. I am also going to try your pralines soon they are my favorite candy too!

Heidi Gore July 8, 2011 at 6:55 am

Oh how I need this giveaway!!! My oven is on the way out!! The broiler doesn’t work, the burners aren’t putting out enough heat, etc. It is over 20 years old and has served me well. Since my husband’s job was eliminated 2 years ago, extra stuff has been eliminated from our budget. If I won, I would make an extra special cake to celebrate and then broil some steaks since we haven’t been able to broil anything for awhile. Oh Random Generator, please, please please, see past your randomness and pick me.

Jessica F July 8, 2011 at 6:56 am

Amazing! I got a “new to me oven” over a year ago, and was just thrilled that it had a timer and oven light, I wouldn’t know where to start with this one…maybe just stare at how pretty it is. I would make sweet corn bread (have to when you live in the south).

Marti July 8, 2011 at 6:56 am

Wow, what a prize! Thanks for the opportunity to win. I would bake my husband’s favorite Pecan Pie and I would try your Ultimate Chocolate Chip Cookie n’ Oreo Fudge Brownie Bar.

Penny July 8, 2011 at 6:57 am

Just gorgeous! I’d love to use the split ovens to make pumpkin bread in July to not heat up my house as much as a standard oven!

Donna July 8, 2011 at 6:57 am

WOW!! What an amazing givewaway!!

The viewing glass in my oven broke a while ago so cooking anything in this would be wonderful. Since it is grilling season right now, I’d probably bake something. I have some over ripe bananas on the counter so a warm banana bread with lots of walnuts or some ooey, gooey chocolate chip cookies. YUM. Now I want something sweet…..

Thanks for the opportunity!!

Selena July 8, 2011 at 6:57 am

I woud make a pork roast. My oven right now is horrible and takes almost double the time it should to cook something. This would be amazing to win!
