REVIEW: KitchenAid Bottle Opener

Kitchenaid Bottle Opener ReviewKitchenaid make good solid durable products and the Kitchenaid Bottle Opener is yet another to add to the collection.

The KitchenAid Bottle Opener is made from 18/8 stainless steel contrasting with a black or white trim to give it a stylish look.

This is a hefty piece of equipment with a good weight that will easily remove bottle tops. You won’t find this one bending.

What We Like

  • It has a lifetime warranty.
  • The bottle opener is dishwasher safe.
  • The handle has an opening to allow it to be hung from a utensil rack.
  • It’s strong and durable. Excellent quality!

REVIEW: KitchenAid Box Grater

Kitchenaid Box GraterThe humble grater is no longer so humble now that Kitchenaid have gotten into the act. The KitchenAid Box Grater is made from 18/8 stainless steel and comes with three grating sides – find, medium and coarse – and one slicing side.

What makes this grater so good is the additional plastic food catcher that fits onto the bottom of the grater. This allows you to grate your foods directly into it. This means less mess plus the plastic container has measurements on the side so you know exactly how much your are grating without having to transfer the contents into measuring cups.

The container comes with a lid so you can store the contents of whatever you have grated in the fridge.

What We Like

  • The base of the grater is rimmed with rubber to ensure that the grater doesn’t slip across the counter when you are using it.
  • The grater is made from 18/8 stainless steel.
  • It’s dishwasher safe so you don’t have to worry about cutting your hands on this one if you have to hand wash it.

What We Don’t Like

  • It’s big so will take up a bit of storage space. Compare this with the OXO Good Grips Grater if you are looking for a similar box style grater that is easier to store.

Kitchenaid 4 Piece Utensil Set

kitchenaid-4-piece-utensil-setThe Kitchenaid 4 Piece Utensil Set is another in the line of Kitchenaid products but is this set all that it is cracked up to be?

We have a strong liking for Kitchenaid. Their products are good quality, solid and built to last. Unfortunately however, this set of Kitchenaid utensils does seem to have a couple of design flaws that a number of reviewers weren’t happy with.

The first related to the size of the utensils. They are actually quite big and while some were happy with this, others felt that they took up too much space when trying to store them. For instance, the handles are quite thick so many found that when storing them upside in a crock they took up too much space.

The heavy handles were also a problem. When resting on the side of a fry pan for instance, they would sometimes tip backwards out of the pan, taking the food with it. And those with small hands, found them too difficult to manage.

Another problem that some reviewers found was that the slotted spatula was not pointed enough at the end so they found it difficult to use to pick up things like cookies.

One other flaw that some noticed was that after washing, the handles retained water and they found that when stirring that the water would drip out into the food.

Funnily enough though, despite all of these flaws, there were still a good number of consumers who were extremely happy with the set.

What’s Included:

  • Slotted Turner (14.75in)
  • Slotted Spoon (13.5in)
  • Basting Spoon (13.5in)
  • Short Turner (12in)

What We Like

  • These utensils are dish washer safe.
  • These utensils are made from heat resistant silicone.
  • We love the color of these utensils – they are bright and fun.

Kitchenaid Proline Nickel Pearl Belgian Waffle Iron – The Best Waffle Iron Ever?

kitchenaid-proline-nickel-pearl-belgian-waffle-ironIt’s not very often we come across a product that has received the amount of positive reviews that this Kitchenaid Proline Waffle Iron has.

For instance, just check the reviews on As of the date of this blog post out of the 50 or so reviews posted for this product on that site, around 45 had a 5 star rating and about 5 gave had 4 stars. Not one of the reviewers gave it any less. This is exceptional and not something we see very often. This is restaurant quality at its best.

Just about all of the reviewers commented on how perfectly the waffles turned out with most saying that it created crisp Belgian style waffles that were soft and fluffy on the inside.

What We Like

  • This waffle iron makes two waffles at a time which is great if you have a family to feed.
  • The waffles take anywhere from 3 to 5 minutes to cook.
  • Clean up is relatively easy – just wipe down with a damp cloth or paper towel.

What We Don’t Like

  • The price is a little hefty for a waffle iron but if you want the best of the best then you are going to get it with this waffle iron.
  • This waffle iron is large and heavy so will take up a bit of space on your counter.
