*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

SAM_0304.JPG

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.

TimerClock

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.

My fur babies (Piglet and Buddy) hard at work watching the timer while biscuits bake!

I don’t know about you, but my pets are much more then just animals they are family. In my case they are my babies and are rather spoiled. I have a large dog who thinks he is a small lap dog, and a small guinea pig who thinks she is a large dog. And they both LOVE treats! But with all the fillers they put in stuff now a days its so hard to buy treats that you know are truly good for them. So I was super excited to be able to make my own, and of course they didn’t mind reviewing these molds either! 🙂

The silicone molds are adorable! Red has 14 paws, each paw is about 2 in. x 2 1/2 in. and the mold is approx 3/4 in. deep. Blue has 15 bones each bone is almost 3 in. long, widest part is approx 1 1/2 in. and mold is 3/4 in. deep. It also comes with a 9 page booklet with a few recipes, tips, ingredient info and storage info.

I tried out the blue bone molds and the build a bone recipe which is a basic starter recipe that you can combine a mixture of any wet/dry ingredients from a list. I made banana, peanut butter, blueberry bones because my pets happen to love those ingredients and that is what I had on hand. (I also added flour and water per recipe)

Dog Treats

The recipes are simple which I like, and have a lot of options. I did think the directions could of been a bit more clear though. For example, it said to fill the molds, it never said how much dough to put in the molds so I jam packed the molds full the first time and forgot how thick it was. So they turned out a bit raw in the middle since I used the shorter cook time. (They do give an option for a longer cook time for a dryer crunchier treat, I would use this option if you are going to make thick treats) Otherwise I would not fill the molds completely full. Just like regular baking it does take a bit of trial and error.

The molds themselves are great! They are nonstick, I left the bones to cool and then flipped the mold over and popped them out with no issues! They are super easy to wash, and are dishwasher safe. My fur babies loved the treats and can’t wait for me to make more! You could also use these for other things, pupsicles are next on my list! If you would like to learn more, or purchase your own set you can find it here.  I recieved this at a discount for my honest and unbiased opinion. 

 

 

 

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

SAM_0237.JPG

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.

artic shakers

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.

 

Rapid Veggie Cooker

Rapid Veggie Steamer – Cook Pefect Vegetables in the Microwave! by Rapid Brands

SAM_0081.JPG

  • Cook PERFECT vegetables in the microwave every time!
  • SAVE time – no more pots, pans, or waiting for water to boil!
  • The PERFECT addition to your kitchen! MUST HAVE for students, busy parents, and healthy eaters!
  • HEAT and EAT – steam delicious fresh veggies in minutes 2:30! Frozen veggies in 4 minutes!
  • BPA free, reusable, and dishwasher safe.

 


 

The veggie cooker is simple and easy to use. The instructions are on the back of the box, and also on top of the clear lid. 3 Basic Steps: 1. Fill with water to the line. 2. Put veggies in the steamer tray. 3. Cover and microwave! Easy Right!?

The top lid has nice side taps to grab it, although it doesn’t snap down which I like, because who wants to unsnap something hot? I really like how the veggies are separate from the water, it means no burning your fingers trying to drain the water. And it saves time waiting for the veggies to cool from the hot water. I also like that this doesn’t get super hot, I let it sit a minute in the microwave and it was cooled enough to take out.

For me it did take a bit longer then the 2:30 mins to get my veggies cooked but it does say on the box that the cooking time might vary based on microwave. And I’m sure it depends on how soft/hard you want your veggies.

I think this would be great for a single person who wants to just steam a tiny bit of veggies at a time, or even for a couple as I think it could hold a good bowl size of veggies. You can get your own Rapid Veggie Steamer here. I received this product at a discount for my honest and unbiased opinion. 

Sibode Cup Mat

  • Made of Food Grade Silicone that is Heat and Cold Resistant
  • They’re Flexible, Resilient and Do Not Break
  • BPA-Free, Eco-Friendly and Easy to Clean
  • Size: 9 cm , 4 “

 

Coaster

This coaster is darling! The pattern/design caught my eye immediately since I adore pink and anything cute! I actually thought it was going to be foam on top but love that it is silicone it is very durable and flexible. The silicone material is nice because it grips nicely to the table and to your drink and stays in place so you don’t have to worry about it being bumped and moving around. And if you do happen to spill you can easily wipe it clean.

It’s also good for hot/cold beverages! And because its not fabric/paper material you don’t have to worry about water stains on your wood table. It is an average size (approx 4″) the only con I had is that I wish you got more then 1 or it would be a bit cheaper, honestly its a tad expensive for one coaster. At the time of this review it was $7.99 (prices do change on Amazon so I normally don’t list them in my reviews) But I think it would make a cute gift for a single lady or maybe you don’t know what to get grandma for Christmas?

I would still recommend this, as not everyone is as cheap as I am haha! And maybe you don’t need 4 coasters? I did give this a 4 star review just because of the price/1 coaster and also I found the listing/info on Amazon to be kind of odd but overall I still really like it and it is great for my girly pink office 🙂 You can purchase your own here!

SAM_0013

My Review: These came packed in a clear wrapper all nicely stacked together, which means they take up less space which is super nice! I love how light weight these are. The lid is clear, making it easy to see what is inside. It is easy to attach, each side snaps onto the base 3 times which gives it a nice seal. It was a bit harder to take the lid off though, but that just means that it locks on tightly. I like how the compartments are fairly deep, keeps each area separate from each other. These would be great for picnic lunches, road trips or left overs from holiday dinners. These hold up well in the microwave. You can also freeze them and they are dishwasher safe. For me the only thing I didn’t like was that it came 7 to a pack, I just find that to be an odd number to include, obviously that isn’t a huge deal, I just think it would make more sense to have an even number of things. I still gave this a 5 star review as I did enjoy using this product. You can purchase your own set here. I recieved this for free/at a discount for my honest and unbiased opinion.

Pug in a Mug Tea Infuser

SAM_0438
This is the KABOOCHY Pug in a Mug Silicone Loose Leaf Tea Infuser, isn’t it adorable?! I was super excited about the chance to try this out, because I LOVE tea and of course because I love dogs and cute things haha! This came in just a simple clear plastic packaging. It is made of a soft silicone that comes apart in two pieces as shown and once you add the tea it just pops back together. It was really easy to pull apart and to put back together.

.

I really love how Mr Pug sits on the side of your cup, so you don’t have to to fish around for anything in your tea. I let mine sit for 5 mins which was the amount my tea amount said and it turned out perfect! No tea came through into the cup because the holes are small. It was also easy to dump out into the trash and wash out after use. SAM_0436

I think this Mug is adorable and works great! Only Con, it only comes in Beige 🙂 I’d love to see it in other colors! I’d still give it 5 stars. You can order yours here. I received this product for free in exchange for my honest review. 

Jalousie Antibacterial Silicone Dish Scrubber Sponge Brush

Packaging: Is very nice, would make a great gift!

The first thing I noticed about this dish scrub was that it was super flexible and squishy feeling which I love. I do use gloves to use dishes so it made gripping easy and i’m sure if you don’t use gloves it is soft to the touch. The shape and texture makes it easy to clean anything including slots in forks/spatulas (see pic).

It also has a really nice suction cup that works nicely to keep on the side of the sink. It also suds up really nice with soap and I found it scrubbed pots/pans really well. I also like that you can boil it or microwave it to disinfect it which makes it last alot longer then sponges, I feel like this would last along time!
