Review: Snow River Carving Board with Gripping Ring

snow-river-carving-board-with-gripping-ringNow this is a great idea. How many times have you started to carve up something and have it slip out from under you?

The Snow River Carving Board prevents that from happening with its unique gripping ring that holds that piece of meat firmly in place as you cut.

The gripping ring is made from stainless steel and is removable so it makes it easy to clean up.

Around the edge of the board is a drip trough to collect all the drippings from the meat so they don’t end up all over your counter.

The board is made of northern hardwood and measures 18 x 14 x 1inch.

Currently cooking.com are holding a special on this item with 20% off but it is only valid until 18 December 2008 so you’ll want to get in quick if you want to get it at the reduced price.

This would make a great gift for Christmas.

Review: OXO Good Grips Stainless Steel Salad Spinner Review

oxo-good-grips-stainless-steel-salad-spinnerThe OXO Stainless Steel Salad Spinner ease of use combined with it’s good looks make this a winner in my books. However, reviews on the internet were quite mixed.

For instance, Amazon reviewers either loved it or hated it while those on Cooking.com rated it very highly.

The 5 reviewers on Amazon who weren’t happy all had spinners that broke after only a few uses. Perhaps there is a bad batch of OXO salad spinners on the market at the moment.

The reviewers at Cooking.com were all extremely pleased with most rating it at 5 stars.

What We Like

  • One handed operation.
  • The lid is clear so you can see exactly what is going on inside.
  • The base of the bowl is non-slip.
  • You can use the stainless steel bowl and the basket insert separately if you like.
  • Easy to clean.

Other Things to Consider

  • It’s a bit pricey for a salad spinner.

Review: All Clad LTD Round Nonstick Grill Pan Review

all-clad-ltd-round-nonstick-grill-panThe All Clad LTD Grill Pan is one of those very versatile pans that you will find yourself using over and over again. Whether you are cooking up breakfast for the family or grilling a couple of steaks for dinner.

The LTD range of cookware are made with three layers of bonded materials – stainless steel, pure aluminum and anodized aluminum. This makes for one solid piece of cookware that cooks exceedingly well.

Keep in mind that the LTD range of cookware was originally designed for professional chefs so you are looking at commercial grade cookware here.

What We Like

  • The pure aluminum core means that foods cook evenly and without hotspots.
  • It’s good looking cookware and will look the part hanging from a pot rack in your kitchen.
  • The handles are riveted for strength and durability.
  • I like the round shape – it’s just a bit different to the usual square or rectangular grill pans available today.

What We Don’t Like

  • You can’t use metal utensils.
  • This pan is not dishwasher safe.

Review: Rosle Fruit Muddler – Caipirinha Pestle

rosle-fruit-muddler-caipinha-pestleIf you are like me and are wondering what this actually does (hey, I’m not much of a drinker) then you are about to find out.

This little device actually squeezes the juice out of citrus fruits.

It is particularly useful for making the traditional Brazilian drink called Caipirinha which is made with limes, cachaca and sugar.

What We Like

  • It’s made from 18/10 stainless steel.
  • It’s designed and engineered in Germany.
  • At 6.75 inches this is great for taller glasses.
  • This is dishwasher safe.
  • It has a lifetime warranty.

What We Don’t Like

  • Nothing really.

le-creuset-braiser-35qtThis is one of those pieces of cookware that you will find that you use again and again in your kitchen.
