Cutting Boards USA Maple Cutting Board Review-
Available at Official Website
Price varies depending on your selection

usa maple cutting board reviewA cutting board is an essential tool in the kitchen. I have a few. I use different boards for different things and I always cut my meats, fish and poultry on their own boards. A recent request for a cutting board review gave me the opportunity to use a wood cutting board again. I don’t use them much anymore. I like to put my boards in the dishwasher to sanitize them.
You can find a variety of shapes and sizes available at Cutting Board USA. I love their cow shaped cutting board! I received the 9 x 12 inch rectangular maple cutting board for the purpose of this review. It is perfect for cutting fruits and vegetables. It has a nice size drip edge to catch the juices too. It’s made of a lovely piece of wood and would be a valuable tool in any kitchen. When you receive your cutting board it comes with an index card explaining the proper way to season and maintain your cutting board. It’s important you oil your new cutting board. I prefer to use food grade mineral oil to season the board.

This is a fine product proudly made in the USA. four star review

 The Oil + Vinegar Twofer Review

Available at  ArtandCook

Price $19.99

oil + vinegar twofer review Katherines CornerI always use vinegar and oil on my salads and I used to have two bottles or two dispensers on the table. I think this product is brilliant! Did I say brilliant? Well I meant it. You get the best of both in one container. It’s attractive, easy to fill and easy to use. Just press the button marked oil or vinegar and taa daa. This may be one of the easiest reviews I’ve ever written. It is so practical. Only drawback to this beauty is it is difficult to clean the inside the top and spout.

Oransi Ionic Fridge Air Purifier Review

Available at oransi.com and Amazon

The Oransi fridge air purifier works using a built in micro CPU that controls the purification cycle in the fridge. That sound impressive right! Especially since  I have always used baking soda to help eliminate odors in the fridge.  I was enthusiastic about trying this system. It uses two AA batteries that lasts for about 60 days. But I changed them to rechargeables. There is no filter to change and it’s small enough to fit on the back of the shelf and not get in the way. I put an onion on a plate and placed it in the refrigerator. It took about 5 hours and then the odor was diminished quite a bit. It did not eliminate the odor. Whether this was a result of time or the air purifier is debatable

American MetalCraft 3 Tier Platter Stand Review

Available at Instawares 

I was happy to review this product I knew it would be perfect for parties, barbecues and get togethers. I was right.Place your serving dishes on it and it is perfect for barbecues, family gatherings, and parties. It’s made of sturdy construction and has attractive scrolled feet. It is big , it stands 22 1/ inches high and 11 1/2 inches wide. It is big enough for large platters and dishes.It will hold a 17 inch  dish, a 12 inch dish and a 8 1/2 inch dish ( also available at Instawares). I liked this product so much I gave one away in the July Summer Time Giveaway.   Instawares carries a variety of products perfect for tablescaping, parties, receptions, large and small gatherings. I would have given this product five stars but you do have to buy the dishes separately.

 

 

 

 

 

Duncans Kitchen Grips Pan Handle Covers ( set of 2) Review
Available at  Leslie’s Kitchen through Amazon

Available in red, green or black

These are just what I’ve been needing and they sure are a welcome replacement for the old oven mitt I’ve been using on the handles of my stainless steel pots and pans.
The rubber grips help to keep the handle cover in place. The set of 2 Kitchen Grips handle covers includes 1 small(6 inches) and 1 large (7 inches) cover. Made by Duncan Industries ( Dishwasher Safe) The only thing that kept this product from receiving five stars is it does not hold it’s shape, you have to manipulate it a bit to use it. It’s worth the trouble though.
 * Never leave this product on the handle while you are cooking, especially if you are using an open flame.

 

 

 

 Wolfgang Puck 20 Piece Cookware Set Review

Available at fine stores everywhere Cost varies $199.99-$249.99

This collection is well used in our kitchen. Made of heavy gauge stainless steel construction this set comes with a 1 quart and 3 quart saucepan, an 8 quart stock pot, a 10 inch omelet ( frying) pan, an 11 inch sauté ( frying) pan and the best of all a 12 inch chefs pan ( deep frying pan). I use every piece of this collection regularly. It cooks evenly and there are even holes in the handles if you want to hang them from your chef’s rack. All of these must have items come with  glass lids.

In addition to the must have items you also receive 2 small bowls, a whisk, serving fork, spoon, slotted spoon, spatula and a slotted spatula. You can use this forever as it comes with a lifetime guarantee. Use them on your stove top or in your oven up to 400 ° F.  Now, with all of this praise you would think I would give this cookware a five star rating. But, the handles do get hot! I have to use grips (see my other review), this is a minimal inconvenience though. Also, I did have a glass lid incident. Fortunately the lids were all replaced with stainless steel lids by the manufacturer. This set would be perfect if they’d change the lids from glass to stainless steel and cover the handles.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Procter Silex Coffee Grinder Review

Available at Target and other fine retailers Cost

Cost varies 12.99-19.99

This is an essential tool for any coffee drinker. My husband likes his coffee beans ground fresh for each pot. This little grinder did a fine job. It’s light weight and has a retractable cord. So I can keep it right on the shelf with the coffee. No need to have it out on the counter. It has three grind settings and a simple on off switch. The only thing I would change is the way the lid fits. I think it would be less messy if the top fit more securely on the inside rather than on the outside. Grounds can get in and when you take the lid off some grounds will fall out. But, this is a minor thing really. Some of the parts are dishwasher safe. But I prefer to hand wash.
