Rachael Ray Kitchen Tool Accessories – Rachael Ray Tong Set

rachael-ray-tongsI find that a good set of kitchen tongs are an essential part of my kitchen. I use them for all those jobs such as turning steaks on the grill, sausages,kebabs, chicken pieces, tossing and serving a salad and a myriad of other cooking tasks.

For many years I used a set of tongs with the black silicone tops which is essential to making sure I don’t scratch any of my non-stick cookware. Well, although my set is functional, black sure doesn’t have the whizz bang effect that this set of Rachael Ray tongs has. Because like all Rachael Ray kitchen accessories, these tongs  are available in her signature color of  orange.

So apart from being one of those really useful kitchen essentials these tongs add a bit of pizzaz when it comes to serving food.

Now another feature that I really like about these Rachael Ray 2-Piece   ‘lil Hugger Tongs’ is that the heads of the tongs are  designed to withstand heat up to 500°F, so you can use them on the grill without worrying if they are going to melt, and the tong handles will withstand up to 350 ºF.

They have  grippy silicone handles which are comfortable to hold and make it really easy to hold onto slippery foods such as corn on the cob.

When you have finished using the tongs they lock into a closed position for easy storage in the drawer or utensil holder. You will be really happy with how easy these tongs are to clean and they are dishwasher safe. Included in the set are tongs in the following sizes:

  • One pair  measuring 9 inches
  • One pair measuring  12 inches

The Rachael Ray tong set is one of those really useful kitchen utensils that you will have you wondering how you ever did without them.

Rachael Ray Orange 10 Piece Stainless Steel Set Review

Rachael Ray 10 Piece Stainless Steel Cookware SetThis set contains a 1½ quart saucepan with lid, a 3 quart saucepan with lid, an 8 quart stockpot with lid, an 8 inch skillet, a 10 inch skillet and a 10 inch (3 quart) sauté pan with lid.

This is a very ‘Rachael’ set with her trademark favorite  color orange.  If you like orange you will love this set – and it is also quite a good safety feature as it makes you more aware of where the handles are positioned on the stove top and so you automatically turn them in for safety.

The stay-cool handles are also attached to the pans with double rivets making them extra strong.  They are easy-grip silicon and angled high so it doesn’t hurt your wrist to lift a full pan.

Stainless steel is not known for its’ ability to heat up quickly and evenly.  However the Rachael Ray 10-Piece Stainless Steel Cookware Set has a thick, flat aluminum base which makes up for this deficiency and it is great when you’re cooking as you don’t get hot spots that cause the food to stick and burn.

It also has a nice satin finish rather than a shiny one  which is aesthetically pleasing – it looks really good. The slight rounding of the interiors from the base to the side makes them work like professional chef’s pans and gives great results.

The edges of the pans are slightly flared which makes it possible to pour from them without annoying drips. Dishwashing is not recommended but to be honest, because the bases are so thick, you don’t need a high heat so not much sticks to these – so hand washing isn’t a chore.

If anything does stick, just give the pan a good soak in hot, soapy water and use a non-scratch dish scrubber.  Bar Keepers Friend will get rid of even the most stubborn stuck or burnt on food.

The glass lids are great for seeing what’s happening to the food but the drawback with these is that there is no vent in the lid.  This means that as steam builds up, it clouds the glass so that you can’t see the contents and you do end up having to lift the lid off anyway.

A helpful bonus with this set is that the lids for the sauté pan and the Dutch oven also fit the 10 inch skillet so you don’t waste time hunting for lids. The set is compatible with all stove tops, even induction and is safe in an oven up to 400 degrees. All in all, a great ‘starter’ set for a reasonable price, which you can add to as there are many other matching items available.

Rachael Ray Tea Kettle – Green, Blue, Orange, Yellow and Red Tea Kettles

Tea Lovers Rejoice!!

Rachael Ray has just introduced two styles of tea kettle to her already extensive range of kitchen products. The Rachael Ray Tea Kettle is bold, fun and unique which is nothing new when it comes to her products. I really like her style and I like this teakettle.

The exterior of the tea kettle is made from a porcelain on stainless steel and it has an almost glossy look…nice! It is also easy to clean.

This teakettles comes in a 2 quart and a 1½ quart size, and they are available in colors that beautifully match Rachael’s cookware sets and kitchen utensils sets so  anyone who already owns her range of products in a particular color will find a teakettle that will blend in nicely.

The teakettle whistles when the water boils so you shouldn’t have any problems with the kettle burning out if you forget that it is sitting on the stove.

Rachael-Ray-tea-Kettle-blueThis is a 2 quart kettle so if I do my calculation here…actually I am using Google to do it….and we convert that to cups you are looking at an 8 cup kettle which is a fairly decent size.

The lid is  removable making it easy to fill the tea kettle up and when you are ready to pour you simply push the lever on the handle forward and the spout pops up.

I really like the shape of this Rachael Ray tea kettle. It’s nice and compact and just looks good.

The Marvellous Rachael Ray Moppine – A Must Have For all Cooks

What is the Rachael Ray Moppine?

Well here is just another innovative idea from Rachael Ray, the set of 3  Rachael Ray Moppine Oven Mitts.

And just what is a moppine?, I hear you ask. Well, a Moppine is an all-in-one oven mitt and kitchen towel.

Each moppine has pot holders built into two of the corners so you can protect your hands from the heat by using the oven mitts which are padded and lined with terry fabric. Then you simply use the kitchen towel section to wipe down your cutting board or kitchen bench top.

Talk about saving time – you don’t have to fossick around looking for a pot mitt, it is simply there as you need it, attached to your kitchen wipe. There is also a tag to hang your moppine somewhere handy so that it is always in easy reach.

The Rachael Ray Moppine Oven Mitts are made from a waffle weave fabric which makes them super absorbent.

When the time comes to clean the moppine, simply wash it in the washing machine, you can use a non chlorine bleach if you think it is needed and then pop them in the dryer.

The Moppine is one of those kitchen accessory must haves for anyone who spends a lot of time cooking.

They are available in sets of three of the same color as follows:

The Rachael Ray Moppine is one of those kitchen accessories that you will wonder how you ever managed without it.
