Review: Revere 3-Piece Mixing Bowl Set

revere-3-piece-mixing-bowl-setOne mixing bowl in the kitchen is never enough. At the same time you don’t want a stack of them that can’t fit together as that just means more shelf space you are going to lose in those kitchen cabinets.

Instead, consider the Revere 3-Piece Mixing Bowl Set to serve all of your mixing needs while still being able to stack inside one another and not take up too much space.

This set of stainless bowls comes in three sizes:-

  • 1 Quart
  • 2 Quart
  • 3 Quart.

Each bowl also comes with a matching plastic lid that you can pop on the top so they can immediately become a storage container to save some of what you mixed up for later.

The stainless steel construction means these will allow you a lot of use, and even a lot of abuse in the kitchen.  The stainless steel is strong enough to handle mixers and other rough use. When it comes to clean up, they are also easy enough to care for as you can throw them in the dishwasher and let it do all of the work.

What We Like

  • That they are dishwasher safe which makes clean up easier
  • The rings on the side of the bowl make it easy to hold the bowl in place while mixing.
  • This is a great value for the three bowls you get.
  • The lids make these a great and easy way to store foods that you didn’t finish without having to dirty up yet another piece of kitchenware.

Other things to consider:

  • The lids are for storage only and should not be placed in the microwave.
  • Be sure to check the sizes as these bowls are smaller than they look in the picture.  So just check to make sure the sizes suit the purpose you buy them for.

Review:Progressive International Heavy Duty Nut Chopper

progressive-internation-heavy-duty-nut-chopperWhether you are making cookies, sundaes or your own peanut butter, you need a way to chop up a lot of nuts for some recipes. The Progressive International Heavy Duty Nut Chopper may be the answer you are looking for.

When it comes to simplicity, the Progressive International Heavy Duty Nut Chopper wins hands down. Put the nuts that need to be chopped in the top, turn the crank and watch the stainless steel blades spin around inside the container and make quick work of the nuts you have loaded. Then you can follow the nut pieces as they fall through to the measuring cup that is the bottom of the grinder. When your chopped pieces get to the measurement you need, you’re done. It doesn’t get any easier than that.

Additionally, the creators thought of practical problems when they created this design. The bottom has a non-skid area so it will stay put as you use your arm power to turn the crank and chop the nuts.

What We Like:

The chopper allows variety from thick and coarse nut pieces to a very fine chop.

As the nuts chop they fall into a cup that has measurements on the wall so you know how much you have made.

If there is a lefty in your kitchen they will appreciate that the handle is made to be used by either left handed or right handed cooks.

It’s a great price for what it does.

Other things to consider:

You may find that it grinds a little to well in some instances and end up with quite a bit of very fine grindings,  one reviewer has stated that to combat this, turn the grinder one way to get coarse grindings and the other way to get finer result.

Review: Lodge Logic Pre-Seasoned 10-1/2-Inch Round Griddle

lodge-logic-pre-seasoned-round-griddleDo you like camping as much as you like being in the house? Perhaps you want the secret to how restaurant pancakes taste so great. The Lodge Round Griddle is what you need.

Made of cast-iron, the Lodge Logic Pre-Seasoned 10-1/2-Inch Round Griddle is a great piece that will hold up inside, outside and more for generations, not just years.

This is the type of griddle your grandmother cooked on and likely her grandmother before her. Cast-iron is a tried and true cooking surface and will last for decades or longer if you take care it.

It is important to understand how cast iron works before you start cooking with it. Before cast iron is cooked with it has to be seasoned. This pan has been seasoned in advance of your purchase with vegetable oil. Periodically it may need to be re-seasoned with more vegetable oil to keep it cooking properly.

When it comes to cleaning you should only rinse the Lodge Logic griddle clean with hot water. Soap will remove the oil it has been seasoned with. If there are particles of food that you cannot get off you can scrub the surface with steel. Make sure to dry it thoroughly before you put it away as it can rust if you don’t.

What We Like:

  • This is a good piece that will be with you for generations to come.
  • The griddle cooks evenly.
  • This is a heavy-duty piece that will do just what it’s supposed to.
  • It can be used inside the oven, on the stovetop or on an open fire.
  • The flat edge makes this a great choice for cooking things that need to be flipped like eggs and pancakes.

Other Things to Consider:

  • It has to be hand washed and periodically re-seasoned to keep cooking effectively.

Review: Matfer Exopat Nonstick Baking Mat

matfer-exopat-baking-matIf you like to bake but hate the mess and problems that often come with the baking process, you may want to add the Matfer  Exopat Baking Mat to your cooking arsenal.

This nonstick baking mat is the perfect way to take the stress out of your baking projects.

What is the biggest complaint when baking?

The cookies or candy sticking to the pan and then becoming a mess as you try to remove them, right? Well this mat will stop that from happening. Instead of having to scrape and make a mess of those perfectly shaped cookies, your baked creations will slide right off of the mat, give it a shake  and it will be ready to be used again for the next batch of treats. Do not use water, and store it flat or slightly rolled.

This is even better than the old parchment paper cure. With parchment paper you have to cut it to fit and it always seems the roll runs out right in the middle of baking and you have to improvise.

The size of this mat also is great as at 11-5/8″ x-16-3/8″ it is large enough to keep you baking at full potential. If you are a serial baker you may want to get two of them so you always have one ready to go for the next batch of cookies.

The  Matfer Exopat nonstick mat is freezer safe and can withstand oven temperatures up to 580 degrees.

Use it over and over – it’s guaranteed to last up to 3,000 bakings.

What We Like:

  • It gets rid of the waste and expense of having to use a lot of parchment paper.
  • It’s big enough to make a lot of cookies at a time.
  • It lets you have perfect cookies every time because they don’t stick.
  • Easy to clean just rinse and it’s ready for the next baking project.
  • Putting it away is easy as it rolls up and can tuck nearly anywhere.

Other things to consider:

  • It’s not dishwasher safe, but it is quick and easy to wash up by hand.
