Our first Giveaway! Enter to win a VitaClay Organic Multicooker

By   165 Comments

I’ve been wanting to find a way to thank you – my faithful readers – for all your support, great questions, and insights for a while now. It occurred to me that a fun way to do this would be to give you a present! I wish I had the means to give each and every one of you a gift, but this is the next best thing: I’m going to gift one lucky reader with this awesome VitaClay slow cooker.

Now this isn’t some humdrum boring old slow cooker that makes a decent pot of chili. This thing’s got skillz. For starters:

  • The pot is made from all-natural unglazed pure clay. This means no nasty aluminum, lead or other non-stick chemical coatings to infect your food. As a nice bonus the clay will intensify the flavor of whatever you’re making. (A piece of kitchen gear that makes you look better as a chef… Can’t go wrong with that!)
  • It cooks up to 4 times faster than a conventional slow cooker. Essential for the time-conscious among us.
  • It has all the benefits of slow cooking – delicious and easy to prepare meals that are easily digested and packed full of important nutrients, enzymes and vitamins.
  • It makes yogurt. Seriously! (This was the seller for me)
  • It’s programmable for 10 minutes up to 5 hours of cooking time with 10 minutes increments. It also has a delay timer and automatic Keep Warm function.

As the weather cools and schedules get busier with the holidays fast approaching, efficient meal prep and nourishing stews and slow cooked meals are top of my list of essentials. Let us help you out and get your dinner off to a particularly delicious start.

As a bonus, we’ll send three never-before-seen Chef James slow-cook recipes that he’s been perfecting over the last few months. You can be our official recipe tester!

Here’s how to enter:

1. Sign up for my newsletter below (if not already on the list). You must be subscribed at the time the winner is drawn. You can unsubscribe at any time.

2. Use the Rafflecopter widget below to enter the giveaway.

After logging in, you must choose at least one (but you can use them all to up your odds) of the four options to enter.

This giveaway is open to everyone, but the VitaClay Organic Multicooker will be shipped to continental U.S. residents only. Winners who are residents outside of the U.S. will receive a gift card for the lowest listed price for the prize on Amazon.

    I can’t seem to get the rafflecaptor entry to work. What am I doing wrong? I click on “enter to win” but nothing happens. Help!

    This slow cooker looks amazing! I adore making stuffed peppers in a slow cooker!

    My favorite thing to make in the slow cooker is chicken stock. I usually use a roasted carcass, throw in onions and carrots and a little celery. I let it cook for a good long time, til it’s richly colored and equally rich tasting. We often drink so much of it just as it is, that there isn’t always enough left for a big batch of soup.

    Thank you — I always enjoy your newsletters, and as soon as the new kitchen is running, we are going back to eating naked! We did your detox last January.

    Additional items for the chicken soup: backs and necks, and feet when I can find them. I will have to break down and go to Whole Foods for them, I think. Need to find a very local source.

    I would love to have a Vita Clay cooker to make soups and chili and even rice! Looks so very pretty and it would have a loving home!

  11. Margot


    I have sooo many friends who swear by these things, but I’ve never had the pleasure of trying one! I have a feeling my diet would change dramatically with this addition to my cramped shared apartment kitchen where I try to spend as little time on “prep” as possible. 🙂

  12. EMC


    I’ve never heard of one of these! What a fabulous idea. Thanks for educating me!

  13. Ali


    I love our slow cooker. We use it all the time. My personal favorite Slow cooker meals are vegetarian Mexican lasagna and a hearty pot roast stew. Great tip if you don’t have a timer on yours, use one of those plug in timers that you can set yourself and just plug your slow cooker into it. What a novel idea. 🙂

  14. Allyson


    Any cooker that makes meat AND yogurt is a must have in my kitchen. Thanks for the opportunity to win this!

  15. Shayla


    Broths and soups are my favorite!

  24. krista


    I had never heard of the vita clay until recently and am so excited about the idea of the whole thing being non toxic…it hadn’t occurred to me that the slow cooker I have might not be ‘safe’. I’m making slow cooker baked beans for tomorrow’s dinner.

  25. Bonnie
