Chef's Choice Belgian Waffle Iron Giveaway

 ~ Chef's Choice Classic Belgian Waffle Maker ~

We have a country kitchen. That is to say, no islands, no bar stools , no cute little garages for appliances. We do have the basics: 1914 Acorn seven burner stove with four ovens including warming oven, double sink, coffee pot, refrigerator, six foot table that used to be a fixture in a Giles County Bank, three chairs older than all of us put together, two old vintage rocking chairs,  a fifteen year old bench hand crafted by Daddy, gas log fireplace, one dog bed under the table and two dog crates in front of the fireplace. It's the dog crates that make the kitchen, at least, that's what Dave and I tell each other; it adds that touch that says "home" -smile-.

My kitchen, probably, isn't what CSN Stores had in mind when they contacted me and asked if I'd like to host a giveaway but farmers are only about 2% of the US population, and, I've gotten sorta used to being in the minority. If you're not familiar with CSN, visit their website and prepare to be impressed. Seriously, the company started in 2002 with two employees and one on-line shop. As of today, they are one of the top three on-line US retailers of home and office goods and have more than four hundred employees and two hundred on-line stores! They sell what you need, and want, including what I grew up calling them - waffle irons or, as they are now called, waffle makers.
~ our vintage waffle iron ~
About once or twice a month, I'll make waffles using our vintage waffle iron maker. I'm not quite sure how old it is but it's been in use, at the bare minimum, for at least thirty years. Possibly longer as it could have come down through the family, either Dave's or mine. It still turns out excellent waffles but heats up like the beach in August which is also a good thing as it keeps Sadie the Ridgeback's nose off the counter. For a while anyway.


You'll receive one entry by visiting CSN and then telling me which of their products you'd most like to take home.

For an additional entry, blog about it and make sure you let me know. 

For every person that comments and says, "_____ sent me", both people will receive two chances to win.

If you follow me, I'll make nice and follow you back.

USA and Canadian bloggers are eligible and contest is open until Monday, 22 March at 9:00 a.m. EST. CSN will mail prize directly to winner and I wish you all well. The new owner of the above waffle maker will be chosen the old fashioned way...names on pieces of paper and then put into a hat and one name drawn by Dave. I'll e-mail you, ask for your snail mail address and then give to CSN. You'll have until Wednesday, 24 March to respond with your contact information or the process begins again on the 24th.

If you win, please blog about your waffles and make us all envious -smile-.

 Blessings ~ waffles ~ prizes ~ bloggers ~ CSN ~ Belgian waffle makers ~

Thanks for visiting Thistle Cove Farm,
Sandra

    I follow your blog, and will go and blog about over at mine.

    And the CSN store is alot to go through. Since we're building a home,I'll continue to check back with them.

  9. Thank you for telling us about the CSNStore. Somehow, I have missed out on that one. I had a good look around. I must say, the thing I would most like to take home is one of their LG washing machines. Mine is on its last leg, I think. Yah, that is what I would like to open my door to. I don't want much, do I? :-)

  10. Oooh! A contest. Count me in. A waffle maker is something our family could use, too. We have a very old, er vintage waffle iron, too, but it only makes two waffles. My family has five in our tribe. The kidlets get anxious waiting for their breakfast when that old...er vintage waffle iron takes so long, and everyone wants two waffles to start with. And then they want seconds........Breakfast takes all morning for me to bake a few waffles. I end up making toast for me because I get tired of waiting to eat after everyone else. hehe!

    So count me in, please.

    I visited CSN and would love to take the Cuisinart cookware sets home or the Cuisinart pasta maker accessory for the mixer. I've always wanted to try to make my own pasta. My kids could eat pasta all day, just plain with a little butter.

  13. What a funny coincidence! Last night my husband bought me an inexpensive little waffle maker. I had never had homemade waffles before and last night at 10 pm I made my very first batch. It was so much fun! I'm new to cooking and I was surprised by how easy it was to make them. Can't wait to start making them on Sunday mornings. Thanks again for your recent visit to my new blog!

  34. Aside from this lovely waffle iron that my Doug would use to render his adoring fans (myself and our two girls) scrumptius breakfasts, I like the creme brule torch... not because I'll make creme brule any time soon, but because I borrowed one from a friend literally years ago but didn't realize I had forgotten to return it until recently and am now too embarrassed to even bring it up... maybe returning a shiney new torch would help make up for it!

  35. My husband has been wanting a good waffle maker for a while now! This would be great!

    CSN... so. much. to. choose. from. But I'd love to take home the Nexxt Provo Cornershelf in Dark Walnut Veneer. It's beautiful!
