Thermador Ultimate Holiday Recipe Contest

thermador-double-wall-oven-in kitchenvignette
Friends, this is quite possibly the greatest contest we’ve ever done here on TasteSpotting.

Wait, what am I saying?

The Thermador Ultimate Holiday Recipe Contest is the greatest contest we’ve ever done here on TasteSpotting because it involves You, your Ultimate Holiday Recipes, and a Grand Prize valued at $6,599

Thermador’s Professional® Series Double Oven!
It’s kind of a beauty, isn’t it? And it’s got brains, a killer combination in the kitchen (just like me you us!).

In honor of their Professional® Series Double Oven, Thermador is looking for the Ultimate Holiday recipe that is cooked or baked in the oven — any meal from breakfast to dinner, any dish from desserts to main dishes to salads (salads? hey, if your recipe roasts a salad in the oven, more power to you!). The winner of the recipe contest will be awarded their very own Thermador Professional® Series Double Oven!

Let me share some highlights of this double whammy Professional Double Oven, then we’ll get into the details about how to enter.

Thermador’s Professional Double Oven is a Beauty

  • Smooth closing oven doors (you would never think about this, until you don’t hear an oven door slam shut!)
  • Chiseled all-stainless steel design
  • Professional style chronometer
  • Blue electronic graphic display controls all timer functions
  • Powerful but soft halogen light with automatic dimming

Thermador’s Professional Double Oven Has Brains

  • Commercial style rotisserie (industry’s largest at 12 pound capacity – Thanksgiving turkey, anyone?)
  • Largest, most powerful broil element on the market
  • Massive capacity at 4.7 cu. ft.
  • Fastest preheat, and no pre-heat for convection!
  • Superfast 2-hour self clean mode
  • True Convection with precise airflow for cooking on multiple level
  • Three Full Access® telescopic racks with handles, that hold up to 45 pounds, 7 racks total
  • CookControl temperature probe
  • Timer offers automatic delay start mode

How to Enter the Thermador Ultimate Holiday Recipe Contest

Any time between now and Monday, November 12, 2012, submit your ultimate Holiday recipe and a gorgeous photo of your final dish to us via this entry form. Recipes must be baked or cooked in an oven, should be relatively easy to prepare at home, and of course, delicious. A photo of the final prepared dish is required to enter, but will not be part of the judging criteria. Please see the OFFICIAL RULES for detailed recipe requirements and eligibility.

So, if you’d like a chance to win the Thermador Professional Double Oven, share your Ultimate Holiday Recipe!

We’ll be sharing a few of our favorites as well to remind and inspire you over the next few weeks, too (but don’t worry, we can’t enter our own contest).

Good luck!

And if you have any questions that aren’t answered in this post or in the OFFICIAL RULES, ask in the comments! We’ll do out best to answer here for everyone.

I know exactly what I’m going to submit!!


Sarah J. Gim October 16, 2012 at 10:09 am

can’t wait to see it, Libby!

Jennifer @ Celebrating Everyday Life October 16, 2012 at 11:22 am

Very exciting! That stove is GORGEOUS!! Gotta go work on my entry!!


andrew October 16, 2012 at 2:34 pm

this would be nice, if i had a kitchen big enough to fit that double oven….but no space sadly.


Nicole October 16, 2012 at 6:06 pm

Be nice if things ever shipped to Canada…what if we pay our own shipping?? haha


Thermador Canada October 22, 2012 at 7:52 am

Hi Nicole, you can buy this product in Canada too! Please visit for more details. Note: the contest runs only in the US.

KiKi October 18, 2012 at 3:30 pm

That stove is absolutely stunning! I cannot wait to submit something, it’s a long shot, but i’m up for the challenge.


Susie October 18, 2012 at 5:26 pm

Double ovens reminds me of the Brady Bunch. I’ve always had that double fantasy album where I’ve got two turkeys and hams going in two ovens and Bing Crosby is singing White Christmas at a grand piano in my living room. I’m wearing a tiara and I have dimples which is impossible bc I am Asian. This hasn’t happened so far but with this oven, it just may.


Sung October 19, 2012 at 2:20 pm

Susie, you would be happy to know that Alice used a Thermador Wall Oven in the Brady Bunch show. Coincidence, I think not!

Merry Graham October 19, 2012 at 7:15 pm

Oh my goodness, to win a Thermador’s Professional Double Oven to me would be like winning a Mercedes for others. What a beautiful double oven …hmmmm now if I can only htink of a winning recipe! Thanks!


Evi October 20, 2012 at 7:28 am

Does the recipe have to be one that I invented? Most of my holidays recipes have been in my family for generations.


Carmen October 21, 2012 at 10:50 pm

It’s absolutely fantastic, I will prepare the recipe!


Daniela October 22, 2012 at 10:42 am

I hope it can be a side dish, because I have the perfect recipe!!!


Sarah J. Gim October 22, 2012 at 11:25 am

Absolutely can be a side dish! (Or a main dish, an appetizer, a breakfast/brunch dish, bread, desserts… !)

Linda Hensens October 22, 2012 at 8:26 pm

This is going to sound so stupid, but does the oven fit in a standard oven space? Does it also have a cooktop with burners? I have drooled over this oven forever because I see one like it all the time on various cooking shows, and I would just die if I actually won one. I will make an extra dish just enter this contest!


Sarah J. Gim October 23, 2012 at 10:26 pm

Hey Linda! Not stupid at all! (at least I hope not, because I had the same question ;) ) This is from our Thermador friends:

Our ranges DO feature a cooktop with the patented star burner. This contest, however, is actually giving away the new professional double built-in wall oven, not a range. The 30″ wall-oven is the standard FULL-SIZE oven, but please refer to the specs tab on the wall oven product page to ensure your existing cabinetry accommodates for the size of the oven.

Hope that helps, Linda!

Own c302 ovens $900 spent and still clocks go out and power loss occurs. Imam building another house hopefully thermador will solve this so,I can buy my appliances from thermador


Jennifer@The Foodery October 31, 2012 at 8:51 am

Oh, wow, this is gorgeous…we are slowly renovating our first home, a 232-year-old 2-story home with a lot of history–and a lot of work to be done! I would love to win this wall oven and give it a home…in our new home! :)


Julia | November 2, 2012 at 3:03 pm

Wow, that’s a great contest! Very generous! A couple of questions:

1) I read the rules and it looks like one person can submit multiple entries (different dishes/recipes), correct?

2) Will photos submitted to the contest be posted on a regular TasteSpotting wall for everybody to see?

3) Is contest going to be judged by Thermador/TasteSpotting or by public vote?



Sarah J. Gim November 9, 2012 at 3:38 pm

Hopefully these will answer your questions!

1. One person may enter multiple times with different recipes :)
2. Some (but not all) recipe photos will be posted on the regular TasteSpotting site, linking to the recipe, which will be on the Thermador recipe page
3. The contest is going to be judged by a combo judging team from Thermador and TasteSpotting.

Thanks for asking for clarifications!

Lisa Keys November 9, 2012 at 9:21 am

Love to bake any time of the year but especially for the holidays.


Judi Berman-Yamada November 9, 2012 at 3:22 pm

I’ve tried to enter a recipe twice, but have been unable to do so. What am I doing wrong or not doing? I get a dead page after submitting. Thanks


Sarah J. Gim November 9, 2012 at 3:36 pm

Hi Judi! Sorry about that. The system might be overloaded right now accepting entries. Could you wait about an hour and re-try? If that doesn’t work, we can work out an alternate way to get the recipe and photo to us. I also sent you an email :)

Nancy Brush November 10, 2012 at 11:46 am

I’m so happy to be able to enter this contest and thank you for sponsoring it. This would be an incredible prize to win especially since we are considering remodeling our kitchen.
Good luck to all.


Darren from Texas November 10, 2012 at 1:51 pm

I love to cook but my current double oven only half works and the temperature control is spotty and usually 25 degrees off. A nice Thermador would transform my kitchen. I am submitting my families favorite pie recipe, chocolate truffle pie with orange whipped topping. This is a fantastic pie.


Judi Berman-Yamada November 11, 2012 at 4:58 pm

Yay! I’ve been able to enter some recipes and hope I didn’t accidentally enter one of them several times. Thanks.


Jessie November 12, 2012 at 2:50 pm

Haven’t entered a contest in sooo long but I am glad I didn’t miss this one! Let the holidays begin…


Hazel McCoy November 14, 2012 at 9:39 am

Thank you for the contest. I had trouble entering my recipe as it said the site was down. Please confirm that you got my recipe, etc via e-mail.


Judy Armstrong November 20, 2012 at 6:06 pm

What a wonderful contest and fabulous prize? I noticed on the blog that you posted a spice cake recipe from Thermador….is that the contest winner? Fingers still crossed. THANKS again


Pam January 10, 2013 at 1:59 pm
