DR30GS-Large-661X678---RevisedCheck out this thing of beauty: it’s a shiny new Dacor range. And the folks at Dacor are generously offering it up to one lucky winner. It’s all part of the excitement surrounding my cookbook launch. Wouldn’t it be nice to bake my Sour Cherry Oatmeal Bars or Sweetie Pie Quesadillas from Best Lunch Box Ever in such style?

Known for making luxury appliances that are pretty to look at and excellent to cook on, Dacor is family-owned and American-made. This particular Distinctive range, available in either gas or electric, is valued at over $3,000.

  • You can enter using the form below by clicking “ENTER TO WIN.”
  • Earn extra entries by clicking “easy entry for all Dacor fans on Facebook.”
  • Earn a third entry by following Dacor on Twitter.

Deadline for this contest is midnight EST August 22, round about the time your wee ones will be returning to school. Perhaps you’ll be lucky enough to have a gorgeous new kitchen range to go along with all their back-to-school gear!

Good luck!

    My fiancee and I are in such DESPERATE need of a new oven! My baking recipes are just NOT as good with the uneven heat! Plus the handle on my oven recently broke, so it has become increasingly annoying to have to remove a dish when the handle pops right off! What a beauty!

    I had a double Dacor wall oven in my old home. My current home has a single wall oven, builder grade and I am devastated. Baking without my Dacor oven is a chore rather than a joy. I would love to win the oven in your give-away.

    What an amazing prize! I would love to win this, ours is just plain awful, it either burns things or takes way too long to cook anything and don’t even get me started on the oven door. haha

  92. 08.12.2013 at 3:52 PM #

    All our holidays, birthdays, seasonal festivities have been successful because of our Dacor range! Really! I have had a Dacor electric range (12 years) and it is on its very last repair. Our family, friends, and neighbors would appreciate this home receiving a new Dacor range!

  93. 08.12.2013 at 3:55 PM #

    With new family living with us, the range gets a workout every single day , all day long! Ours is not working and the repair man says it time to replace, however, the costs are beyond! Dacor is a workhorse and would be perfect.

    08.12.2013 at 4:47 PM #

    Beautiful range!
