KitchenGadgetsMDGG.jpg

Mother’s Day is the perfect time to spoil Mom with some kitchen gadgets that are too awesome to pass up.  I’ve found a few great kitchen must-haves that any mom would be happy to receive as a gift this year.

Knives.jpg

I am always on the hunt for a great knife set, and this Ginsu Chikara Series set is absolutely perfect!  Striking the proper balance between traditional knife-making methods and new age technology is what makes Ginsu Chikara knives so special.  Chikara forged cutlery exude their old world, Japanese crafters’ skill and precision in a timeless – albeit updated – style that utilizes the most efficient processes and materials.

The Ginsu Chikara series uses layer after layer of forged stainless steel to give each blade an unparalleled level of strength and sharpness that lasts and lasts. Such attention to the core of the blade means these pieces of elegant, forged Chikara cutlery should only be wash by hand. Properly forged handles give each blade the appropriate weight distribution and balance, which helps achieve a perfect cut each and every time. The perfect blend of old-world forgery and elegant, high-end technology, Ginsu Chikara knives and knife sets truly are the best of both worlds.

CanOpener.jpg

The Slim Safety LidLifter is the perfect replacement for your traditional can opener.  Its slim design fits in a picnic basket or backpack and is perfect for camping, boating or picnics. The revolutionary design makes opening cans clean, safe & fun. Lids are removed, leaving no mess or sharp edges. Safe, ergonomic and just plain cool.

  • Tuck away in a picnic basket or backpack – perfect for camping, boating or picnics.
  • Opens cans and pull tops.

Scrubber.jpg

Last but not least, the Stay Clean Scrubber.  This has been a heaven send for me and has replaced my nasty, germ filled sponge for good.  Over 5,000 silicone bristles clean dishes and multiple surfaces.  The Stay Clean Scrubber is cleaner than your typical sponge – non-porous silicone dries faster and won’t harbor bacteria. Better for the environment, this fun and flexible scrubber will stand the test of time. Collect them all!

Capresso is a well known brand thanks to their innovative coffee makers, espresso machines, coffee grinders, automatic water kettles and other kitchen electrics for those who want nothing but the best.  Since 1994 Capresso has been fulfilling those desires for a great in-home brewing experience and they just keep going strong.

Ozeri Kitchen Items You’ll Absolutely Love #Review

ozeri_logo-001

If you know me, you know my home is filled with various Ozeri goodies.  Time and time again, Ozeri has great quality products that last which is why I just can’t get enough of them!

OzeriPopcornMaker.jpg

Growing up as a child, we always had fresh popped popcorn with our air popper and it was one of my favorite parts of family nights.  Whether we were watching movies or playing board games, we were enjoying fresh popcorn and having fun.  The Ozeri Movie Time Healthy Popcorn Maker totally took me back to my childhood days!  You can pop up to 26 cups of popcorn in under 3 minutes and very little (if any) unpopped kernels!  My kids absolutely love the clear chute so they can see the popcorn popping and were so excited to have freshly popped (not microwave bags) bowls of popcorn.  The included butter melting cup is a really nice touch!  You can melt your butter while you pop your popcorn and truly make your snack as healthy or as buttery as you’d like.  The cleanup is super easy meaning you’ll want to use this popcorn popper again and again.

OzeriKnives.jpg

I have been on the hunt for a sharp set of knives that would be durable enough to hold up to the amount of use in my kitchen.  We aren’t the type of family who eats out often, and we don’t use frozen dinners a whole lot.  I really enjoy the experience of getting in the kitchen and cooking for my family, which can feel more like a chore if you’re working with dull, unreliable knives.  The Ozeri 5 Piece Knife and Sharpener Set is exactly what I have been looking for!  The handcrafted blades are made from ultra-durable imported Japanese stainless steel as well as 420 grade stainless steel handles.  The included sharpener is a heaven send for someone like me who uses and dulls knives constantly but I will say I haven’t had to use the sharpener yet.  I’ve put these knives through quite the test and still no need to sharpen not even one of them.  I buy large cuts of skirt steak when I make carne asada and cut and trim the meat myself.  I was never able to get the meat thin enough until I got these knives.  My carne asada was paper thin after using the Ozeri knives and was immediately noticeable to my family.  Each knife is tarnish, stain, rust, and odor resistant so use them however you please without worrying about the small stuff.

Whether you’re shopping for yourself or that special someone this Valentine’s Day,  you can’t go wrong with either of these impressive Ozeri items.

Experience Heaven In A Cup With The New Ninja Coffee Bar System #Review

ninja_logo.png

Ninja is a brand I’m sure you’ll all recognize for their top-of-the-line kitchen products and the new Ninja Coffee Bar is no exception.  I got the older model last year and fell in love with it and I was shocked when this one blew it’s predecessor away.

NinjaCoffeeBar.jpg

The new design is countertop friendly…it’s sleek and fits in just about anywhere.  The new and upgraded Coffee Bar System offers a coffee house experience in your own home that you can’t get anywhere else.  With just the touch of a button you can create drinks that will blow away the skills of any barista out there.  With the help of the advanced thermal flavor extraction you’ll unlock the full flavor potential of your favorite ground coffee with varying levels of richness.

NinjaCollage.jpg

The built in frother is a really nice upgrade!  You can transform milk into a silky, rich, hot or cold microfoam that can be paired with any of your favorite brews.  Get creative with it…add in a little marshmallow creme, coffee syrup, or even your favorite liquer.  My husband really likes the addition of the XL Multi Serving option.  He has a large cup he takes to work and this setting fills his cup just perfectly.  Ninja’s unique Cafe Forte brewing technology amplifies each bean’s unique, natural, and subtle flavors for a coffee experience like no other…and all from the comfort of your own home.

No need for overpriced and over-rated drinks anymore!  With the included recipe book you’ll be brewing up a storm in no time.

NinjaCoffeeBar6.jpg

I’m a little bit of a plain Jane and a flat white coffee is always on the top of my list.  Thankfully Ninja included a great recipe for a great cup of Flat White any time.

NinjaCoffeeBar7.jpg

Cappucino-Style Coffee is a great way to get in a little extra kick of caffeine.  Concentrated coffee helps make this little cup pack a big punch.

NinjaCoffeeBar8.jpg

Well my, my, my…what a delectable little treat this was!  The Cinnamon Graham Coffee is my favorite recipe in the book.  Just the right amount of each ingredient blend together perfectly to make a cozy, comforting coffee drink that I will enjoy time and time again.

I can already see the new Ninja Coffee Bar System at the top of everyone’s list this holiday season!  Whether you’re shopping for yourself, family member or friend, you can’t go wrong with this amazing Coffee Bar System!
