*You can also see these items in my video review click here!*

This set is really nice. We’ve been buying the cheap throw away grinder sets from the store and thought it was time to save money and plastic and get a reusable set.

I was suprised with how big these were when I opened the box! Each jar I would estimate would hold a good 7-8oz. You won’t have to fill these very often. The jar part is made of glass and has a wide rim making it easy to fill and clean either by hand or dishwasher. *Just the glass part though, instructions do state to never wash the ceramic grinder part* The top part is made with stainless steel and has a nice cover to keep out particles and to keep the excess dusts from flying around.

You can adjust the nob in the middle for fine/coarse. That part I did find a bit trickier to find a good setting as it just keeps spinning and doesn’t really lock into place. But it does work very well at grinding as I put in very coarse salt and peppercorns and put it on fine and it made it very fine so I love how it works.

It also comes with a few other items which is an added bonus. I loved the mini silicone funnel, you really don’t need it to fill the jars since they are so wide but it is great for other things, and it collapses flat for easy storage.

The julienne peeler is also a nice bonus, it has 2 peeler blades, be careful they are very sharp! And they also include a cleaning brush making it easy to clean out the little left behind pieces that get stuff in the grater or you could use it on other kitchen gadgets too.

This is a great set built to last, and the company stands behind it they offer a 100% money back guarantee. And we know I love companies who believe in their product! If you want to learn more or purchase your own set you can find it here.

Kitchen Timer by Koalago

Kitchen Timer, Koalago Digital Loud Kitchen Timer with Large Screen Magnet for Cooking Baking by Koalago

I am one of those people that has always thought that kitchen timers are all the same. So I always went to a dollar store to get one because I couldn’t see spending more then a buck on sometime so basic. But after trying this timer I was so wrong and I am in love with my new time and here is why.

Yes at first I thought this was going to be just a regular timer (ok maybe a bit cuter, I mean it does have smiley faces on it!) The first thing I noticed when I opened it was that it has a large screen. You can read it across the room! It is approx 2 1/2 in x 1 1/4 in. This is almost twice the size as my old timer.

I also love the fact that it uses a regular battery. 1 AAA (not included) this means I don’t have to keep buying new timers, because lets face it, most timers have those tiny circle batteries that are more expensive to replace then the whole timer so its easier just to go buy a new one. This one saves me that hassle because I always have AAA’s laying around.

It has a magnet on the back to keep on the fridge or stove and also has a little kick stand. The buttons are on the top, they are the fun little smiley guys and are super easy to press. Not only does this have a count down timer it also has a clock that you can have in regular format (am/pm) or military time.

Only con I had is that it is advertised as a Loud Timer. I personally wouldn’t say it is louder then any other timer I have used, it is a normal beeping sound. Otherwise I found it easy to use and love all the features it has. If you would like to learn more or purchase your own you can find it here.

Salt and Pepper Shakers by Artic

Artic® Salt and Pepper Shakers – Porcelain Dinnerware Keeper Spice Set – Ceramic Containers for Seasoning – Fun Unique Funky Kitchy Novelty – 2 Shaker Jolly Pigs by Artic

My grandmother is a huge salt and pepper shaker fan. I have no idea why.. she actually hates pepper. I’m the opposite I hate salt. But I’m always on the hunt for more sets to add to her odd collection. But then these arrived and I fell in love!! Are these not just the cutest things!? I’m not even a pig fan and I can’t get over how adorable they are. Actually they are so much better in person!

The pigs themselves are made of porcelain but the caps are made of silicon, I really like that part because you don’t have to worry about the caps rusting over time, the silicone just squeezes off easily. Pink pig is for pepper and has 3 holes in the snout and blue is for salt and has one hole. Easy way to remember is pink and pepper are both p’s so they are the same.

The back of the pig is rounded flat so they lay down nicely so you can fill them up with salt/pepper and the opening and nice and wide compared to alot of other shakers I’ve seen. This also is helpful when you need to wash them! Narrow shakers are so hard to wash, not these and they are even dishwasher safe!

These piggies do not disappoint. If you would like to find out more or get yourself a set you can find it here. And if you like matching items the company also has an awesome butter dish. It has a colored rim that you can change the color to match either pig. I have it and love it! I received this item at a discount for my honest and unbiased opinion.

 

Rainbow Baking Cups

Today I got to do some baking with some new silicone baking cups by mrice. First impression: I was confused because when I ordered these on Amazon the picture had each color twice so I just assumed there was 12 (I didn’t bother reading the description.) Once I recieved them and only saw 6 I went back and read the description

  • BRIGHT COLORS:This Set includes 4 bright colors: Pink, Red, Blue and Green – There are 6 cups,three in each of the four colors.   

These are fairly thin, although I have never used reusable baking cups like these so I don’t know if they are suppose to be thin or not. They also didn’t include any instructions and since I have no knowledge of baking with these I wasn’t sure how to properly use them so I put them on a cookie sheet as pictured. I made some orange muffins my regular way with parchment liners and with these so I could see how they compare.

 

Final Verdict: While they didn’t stick to the liners, and popped out nicely, they did slightly burn on the bottom. I think if they came 12 to a set they would be much nicer as I don’t know to many people that only make 6 muffins at a time. I would give them 4 stars.
