Enter to win an induction cooktop!

EBCE is launching the all-new Clean Cooking Contest to spread the word about induction cooking—and we want you to win a portable induction cooktop. Participation is as simple as: Cook a dish. Post a photo or video. And you could win a portable induction cooktop.

Crunchy, fresh, and seasonal. Whether on the cob or off, we want to see how you boil, sautee, or grill your way to corn perfection. And with induction’s fast cooking times, you’ll never be waiting long for your corn to start sizzling.

Meet the winners!

What should you post?

Content Guidelines

Post a photo or video that shows off your induction cooking skills. Your dish should be an interpretation of our monthly theme—anything from our suggested recipe below to something totally unique! And if you’ve borrowed your cooktop from the EBCE lending program, we’d be thrilled to hear about it in your post.

Post as many times as you like! No cursing or rude content.

Official Contest Rules

Need some inspiration for this month’s submission? Try out this elotes recipe—and feel free to put your own creative culinary twist on it.



  • 2 ears of corn
  • 2 Tbsp mayonnaise
  • 2 Tbsp sour cream
  • ¼ cup crumbled Cotija or feta cheese
  • 2 Tbsp chopped cilantro
  • 1 Tbsp chile powder
  • 1 small clove garlic, minced

Heat pan or comal on high, and place in shucked corn. Rotate occasionally for eight minutes, until charred slightly on all sides. Meanwhile, mix remaining ingredients in a bowl. When corn is done, slather all sides in cheese mixture, sprinkle with any extra cheese, and serve.
