REVIEW: OXO Good Grips Box Cheese Grater

oxo-good-grips-box-cheese-graterCheese would have to be one of my favorite foods. I’d have it with every meal if I could but I am not so fussed on the pre-grated cheese that you can get now. It’s okay but it just doesn’t have the same consistency as freshly grated cheese….but now I am getting sidetracked. The reason for this post is to talk about the Oxo Good Grips Box Grater.

OXO seem to receive exceptional reviews for just about every one of their products and this grater is no exception.

OXO seem to put a bit of thought into their products. What I really like about this grater is the storage container which sits below it. Not only does this mean less mess as the cheese drops straight into it, but it also has measuring indicators along the front so you know exactly how much of the food you have grated. BUT not only that, the container has a lid so you can store it in the fridge. Well done OXO!

Most graters are difficult to store due to the odd shape but the OXO grater is slimmer than most so it will be easier to store flat in a drawer.

The handle itself has a comfortable grip and to prevent the grater from sliding around, it is fitted with rubber around the bottom rim.

Of course you are not limited to grating cheese with the OXO grater. The three different surfaces – coarse, fine and super fine mean that you will be grating carrots, potatoes, chocolate and more with ease.

REVIEW: OXO Good Grips Locking Tongs with Nylon Heads

oxo-good-grips-locking-tongsI use my tongs for so many different things – I couldn’t really live without them. They turn steaks and sausages so much easier than any spatula could and they are great for stirring stir frys and even for serving foods. I particularly like them for transferring noodles or spaghetti from a pan to a serving plate.

When it comes to non-stick cookware however, metal tongs can scratch the surface. This is why if you are using tongs you need to have a set with nylon heads and OXO make a superb set.

The Oxo Good Grips Locking Tongs with Nylon Heads come in two different sizes – 9 inch and 12 inch and are made from stainless steel making them strong and durable. The 12 inch are probably more suited for the barbecue where you need to keep further back from the heat.

The nylon heads on this set of tongs is heat resistant to 400F and the tongs are dishwasher safe.

The tongs lock close together and lock into place by pulling the tab at the bottom of the tongs. This also serves as a hanging loop if you want to store these on a utensil rack.

Whirley-Pop Stovetop Popcorn Popper

whirley-pop-stovetop-popcorn-popperThere is nothing like the smell of popcorn. I love the stuff and will generally buy it when I go to the movies. What I don’t like though is the price which is why I like to make it at home.

Making popcorn in your own home is a lot of fun but it doesn’t always come out like the stuff you get at the theatre, that is until the Whirley-Pop Stovetop Popcorn Popper came along. This popcorn maker makes crisp fluffy popcorn.

The reason for this popcorn makers success is the stirring mechanism which keeps the popcorn from sticking and burning. It also means that more popcorn is popped so you don’t get the usual mass of unpopped corn sitting at the bottom of the pan.

The Whirley-Pop Stovetop Popcorn Popper makes up to 6 quarts of popcorn in around three minutes.

It comes with a booklet that includes instructions, recipes and some information on the history of popcorn.

It also comes with a packet of popcorn and flavoring packets to give the popcorn that real movie popcorn flavor.
