Review: Rachel Ray Tea Kettles – Boil Water With Style

Who says making a cup of tea has to be an old-fashioned thing. With a Rachael Ray Tea Kettle teatime has taken on a very fashionable appearance.

The first thing you will notice is the shape. This is a unique looking tea kettle with a less than traditional handle that makes it compact and brags modern styling. The great looks come from a porcelain exterior that has been given a vibrant coloring. Because it is porcelain, clean up is a cinch.

While this tea kettle may look too small to make a reasonable amount of tea, don’t let the looks deceive you. Inside the stylish shape of this kettle are walls that holds 1½ quarts of water.

And it whistles when the water is boiled, so no more walking away and forgetting that the kettle is on and having it boil dry.

The compact design is easy to use and the handle is surprisingly comfortable to hold and you will love the shape when it’s time to put the teapot away. With the compact design, being only 8 inches wide and 8.2 inches tall aso it can be packed away easily without taking up too much space in your cupboards or cabinets.

What We Like:

  • This is an attractive teapot and makes a pretty addition to any kitchen.
  • It is a very compact teapot with the handle very close to the pot making it easier to put away.
  • It Whistles

Other Things To Consider:

  • Some people have found that water spits from the the spout when it boils, this could be a problem with overfilling it though.
  • You may find that some of the boiling water spills when you are pouring from it.  So just take care.

Overall most people who purchased this kettle love the shape, the performance and the color.

This  Rachael Ray Teakettle is also available in Orange, blue and red

Review: Rachel Ray from Furi Rachel Ray Gusto-Grip Kitchen Shears 5-in

Rachel Ray Gusto-Grip Kitchen ShearsWhile many people think of knives when it comes to cutting in the kitchen, how many times have you found yourself saying you could really use a pair of scissors? Well the Rachael Ray from Furi Rachael Ray Gusto-Grip Kitchen Shears are made just for your kitchen needs.

At 5 inches long, these shears are not big and bulky as some other kitchen shears are, but have enough blade space to do the jobs you need done, and then get out of the way while you get back to making great meals. Each blade is made out of a single piece of German stainless steel, which means they are durable and will be with you for a lot of years in the kitchen.

When it comes to cleaning, they should be washed by hand, but it’s not very difficult. These shears come apart so you can make sure to get all that food (especially any raw meat you may have cut) out of the blades and all the connection points.

Cooking is full of repetitive motion, especially if you are cooking the same types of thing time and time again, or a lot of a recipe in one day. This was in mind when these kitchen shears were created as they have ergonomically correct handles that will keep your hands from getting tired or sore while you use them.

What We Like

  • When it comes to clean up we like the fact that these are easy to clean as they come apart for cleaning.
  • The bright colored handle makes them easy to spot in the utensil drawer so you don’t have to dig around.

What We Don’t Like

  • They are not as sharp as we would like them to be for kitchen use.

REVIEW: Sammy Knife from Rachael Ray and Furi – The Perfect Sandwich Knife

rachael-ray-sandwich-knifeRachael Ray has a knack for creating products that are not only fun and unique but also functional. But what makes the Furi Rachael Ray Gusto Grip Basics Sammy Knife so special?

Well it’s not so much the features but that fact that they are all combined into the one handy sandwich knife. So you don’t need to get out the bread knife to slice up the bread and then a spreader to spread the butter and fillings and then find a knife that will fit under the rim to get the very last bit out of a jar. With the Rachael Ray Gusto Grips Sammy Knife you have it all in one.

The Sammy Knife is made for Rachael Ray by Furi. Furi originally started out in Australia but started to promote their products to the US market. This turned out to be a wise decision as Furi became quite popular amongst both chefs and home cooks.

Rachael Ray loved the brand so much that she teamed up with Furi to create a range of knives and sharpening systems in her own signature colors and styles.

Let’s look at some of the features…


First of all the Sammy Knife has a round tooth serrated edge. This makes it easy to cut breads and crusts. Buy hey, all bread knives have serrated edges so that’s really nothing new. What the round serrated edge does however is ensure that there is a smoother cut when cutting sandwiches.

I’m sure we’ve all had the experience of slicing a sandwich in half only to have it tear and squash the bread. Essentially it is ruined but the rounded edges prevent this from happening. The rounded edges also ensure that the edges stay sharper for longer.

The end of the blade is rounded and what this becomes is a spreader for spreading butter and other spreads easily onto breads.

What would have to be one of the best features of this knife is the cut-out on the top of the blade. This is to enable you to scrape out the remaining spreads, jams, peanut paste or whatever from under the rim of jars.


The handle on the Rachael Ray Sammy Knife is made from a thermoplastic elastomer molded over a tough polypropylene core. Now I have no idea what I just said but essentially it means that the knife has a secure grip.

It also has a good ergonomically designed handle so it’s comfortable to hold and it is made in a way that your hand won’t slip forward even if wet or oily.


Unfortunately no. The Sammy Knife needs to be hand washed but hey, it’s not like we are washing a 10 piece cookware set here. It’s a knife so a quick scrub and it’s clean.


The Sammy Knife is available in Rachael Ray’s signature orange, the most popular of all Rachael Ray colors.



REVIEW: Rachel Ray From Furi Ozitech Diamond Fingers Pro Knife Sharpener & Honer

rachael-ray-knife-sharpener-honerIf you have taken a look at the Rachael Ray from Furi TECH EDGE Pro OZITECH Diamond Fingers Pro Knife Sharpener and Honer, you know it looks a lot like something that may have come out of a Sci-Fi movie. Maybe it is, but the important thing is that it does the job it was sent here to do – sharpening knives.

This very compact knife sharpener (1 x 3 ½ x 4 ½ inches) packs a lot of power in its small size. Closed it looks a lot like a clamshell. But as soon as you open it, those clam edges transform into a handle so you can hold the sharpener securely as you pull a knife across the diamond-coated fingers.

In addition to being compact, it is also portable, taking no batteries or electricity so it’s also useful for those who live on the road or like to spend the weekends in the great outdoors.

What We Like

  • This sharpener offers beautifully even sharpening as you pull the blade through.
  • Unlike many knife sharpeners these days, this one is not electric, so it is portable and can be used in the kitchen as well as at the campsite if you like the outdoors.
  • It is very simple to use, put the knife in and pull.
  • It sharpens quickly. Generally three to five pulls along the sharpener will give you a blade that is ready to use again.
  • The size is a major bonus. It is small and therefore doesn’t take up much space in your kitchen gadget drawer.

What We Don’t Like

  • It takes a little practice to get it right. You have to push down with the knife and pull at the correct angle to get a perfect sharpening. There is a slight learners curve to do it correctly.
  • It cannot be used on serrated knives.
