I am totally impressed with this auto soap dispenser. It is so easy to use; just hold your hand under the nozzle and the soap is dispensed. No more touching or pumping with dirty hands.

OLpure improved the previous model by adding a base to hold it in. Apparently there were some issues with rusting. I haven’t had any problems this far.

I ordered this touchless stainless steel automatic soap dispenser for my RV. I have it in the john where it can be most useful for cleanliness. I am going to put a little piece of Velcro under the base to hold it in place while driving. That way I don’t have to put it into the sink and it can be used while on the road too.

This handy hands-free soap dispenser has 3 settings for the amount of soap you want to use. I have it on the first, the least amount. That seems to be just right.

Soap dispenser takes 4 AAA batteries to operate, not included.

Included with my order was a nice stainless spray bottle. The company suggests using it for oil or vinegar. I haven’t used it yet and haven’t decided what I want to put in it. I’ll be using in the RV though for its compact size and great looks.

Cosori 7-in-1 Multi-Functional Pressure Cooker

Cosori 7-in-1 Multi-Functional Pressure Cooker with Glass Lid and Sealing Ring, 6Qt / 1000W

by COSORI      #Cosori

Purchas this product on Amazon.com and the regular sale price is $109.99 free shipping with Prime. Get Prime Free Trial

Why I wanted this Cosori 7-in-1 Multi-Functional Pressure Cooker
Fast cooking, tender and flavorful food. I’m getting pretty tired of making dinner every night and I’m usually to0 sore to stand in the kitchen for hours cooking. I watched a pressure cooker infomercial on TV and I thought, “Wow, what have I been missing all theses years? Cooking could be easy and fast with one of these cookers.” I was hooked.

So what’s so great about this pressure cooker?
It is REALLY A NICE Cooker! I have used this several times now and I’m learning all the different things it can make. I am amazed at the flavor pressure cooking give to the food and FAST – wow unbelievable. Everything taste so good. There are 7 cook setting and a manual setting. I have used both so far but not all 7 of the auto cooking settings.

This is really simple to use for any food you want to make. You can even sear a roast or chops in it first, then add in everything you want with it and set for the time or auto cook. Come back later and it’s done, tender and tasty too. I’m still learning about when I want the steam to escape and when I don’t. I’m really getting the hang of it and my ham and bean soup was to die for gooood!

I have always been, well rather afraid of pressure cookers. I was always told when I was a kid that they can blow up pretty easy, so I just always stayed away from them. Not any more, Cosori has turned on a whole new world of cooking for me. And it’s so incredibly easy.

The pictures I am showing below are of a roast I made with whole potatoes, onions and I took a bunch of the juice out at the end and made gravy. Yummy good. I wonder if I could have made the gravy in the pressure cooker too? Something else I will have to try, next time. Sorry I forgot to take of picture of the finished product. It looked and smelled so good, we just dove right into eating.

dsc04796dsc04798

dsc04799So anyway, what you get here is one heck of a fine multi-function pressure cooker. It comes with the pressure sealing lid and a very nice glass lid and even an extra sealing ring. I put that away for later (years later) as a spare. That’s pretty cool of them, right? Also, a plastic measuring cup, plastic water catcher, and 2 plastic utensils, instruction book and a recipe book. The cooker is 6 qt. capacity and is a whopping 1000 watts.

As far as the recipe book goes, I wish it could have had recipes that I would actually use. Most of it is exotic stuff, well exotic for me anyway. I am able to get some good ideas from it though and improvise and there is always the internet.

Now back to the roast. I browned it in the pressure cooker first, then added water with bouillon, onion and potatoes. Man, those potatoes cook fast. I had to take them out and hold over while I cooked the meat longer. Now I know to add them later. This was a pretty good sized roast, so it did take longer to cook to fork tender. Shortly before the meat was done I just added back the taters to get them hot again. Sorry I didn’t take pictures of the finished product, it was really good though.

Let’s see, what else did I make? Chicken and rice, that turned out real good. I may take the chicken out and put under the broiler for a bit next time. Honey-pie only like his skin crispy. Me, I’m game for anything. Pork chops and taters turned out great. I’m going to be trying some potato soup one of these days.

If anyone has a good method for bread pudding, I have my daughter’s wonderful recipe I would love to make it in this. I think it would work great for that. So please comment if you know how. Thanks.

There are a lot of different settings for different types of cooking. I have used the manual and program 1 and 2 so far. I’m quite anxious to try more.

How well I liked or disliked the cooker?

WonderEsque Vegetable Spiralizer

WonderEsque Vegetable Spiralizer Tri Blade – Includes Cleaning Brush – Zucchini Spaghetti Pasta Noodle Maker – Spiral Slicer Cutter – 40% Smaller, More Compact – Fits in Every Drawer – White Pink

by WonderEsque    My YouTub.com video

Wow, what an awesome product. I originally purchased this as a gift but after using it, well, sorry person, I’m keeping it! LOL I really like the WonderEsque vegetable spiralizer and it’s a lot of fun.It works great with vegetables and a few firmer fruits. There are 3 different blades (hence the tri blade) for different cuttings. The spiralizer is so easy to use and makes fast work out of slicing. I can’t wait to make refrigerator pickles. For once they will all be the same thickness.The directions are well written and give several ideas and pictures to follow. The Wonder Esque Vegetable spiralizer is not dishwasher safe so doesn’t try it to see. It comes apart easily and just rinse it off or use mild hot soapy water. The blades are VERY sharp. Included in the set is a little pink brush to use around the blades, so just be careful.

I’m not really a noodle person, but this is so much fun using I think I’ll be trying noodles in the future.

I really was amazed at the ease of using this. While I was turning it didn’t really feel like anything was happening. I looked over the front edge and there was a pile of ribbon potatoes made.

I am going to have to buy dehydrator now. Cinnamon apples will be a breeze using the Vegetable Spiralizer. Potatoes chips have just become healthier, salads are fun again….Use your imagination and have fun in the kitchen again.

The company is great too, so friendly and helpful if you have any question just contact them. They will send you some pdf files too by email so be sure to leave a correct email address.  Don’t forget the 2 YEAR Warranty for the WonderEsque Veggie Cutter, That’s pretty darn good so hang onto your purchase info.

Stainless Steel Salad Spinner by KitchenWorldwide

Stainless Steel Salad Spinner- Vegetable, Fruit, Lettuce Spinner Bowl- Colander- Serving Bowl With Leak proof Lid & Silicone Non-Skid Base- BONUS: Lettuce Knife & Storage Container

by KitchenWorldwide #saladspinner
Stainless Steel Salad Spinner

You can use this nifty spinner with pasta, vegetables, olives, grapes, greens and more! No more patting dry my garden lettuce…

Finally, I have one!
I always wanted a salad spinner. They work so good for garden veggie time. This item from Kitchen Worldwide is a real nice one too and comes with extras.

Out of the box, there is the Stainless Steel bowl that holds the salad spinner top, inside the bowl is a plastic plate at the bottom and a colander type bowl. Also this set has a nice plastic lettuce knife and an awesome storage container. The storage container has a removable rubber lid on the top and bottom and colander like holes in the bottom where any extra moisture leaks down away from the food. Just pop off the bottom and discard the water. There also is a divider plate that fits into slots in the middle if you need to separate two food items. There is a nice dial on the side with directions on where it should be set for the type of food you’re storing. Kitchen Worldwide thought of everything when they put this set together.

Wash and cut up food, place inside the spinner, put the lid on and spin the knob on top. The food inside spins and all the water flies off and away from food. When you’re done spinning food dry (or almost dry) place the food in the storage container, set the dial open, closed or in between. It’s just that easy.

You can use this nifty spinner with pasta, vegetables, olives, grapes, greens and more! No more patting dry my garden lettuce or putting in a pillowcase. LOL Yes I even tried that. Thank you Kitchen Worldwide for making such an awesome product, I love it.

Watermelon Slicer by Fresh Tools

Premium Quality Watermelon Slicer Corer & Server Fresh Tools – 18/10 Stainless Steel Knife | Melon Cutter LIMITED TIME SALE Right Slice As Seen On TV + FREE Strawberry Huller

by Fresh Tools
Watermelon Slicer Corer & Server by Fresh Tools

You can use it on any type of melon. Once you have all the slices out of the outer shell, just use the tool to cut into bite size pieces.

This is a premium quality watermelon slicer & server and came along with a free strawberry huller. I haven’t had a chance to use the strawberry tool yet. Both are made very well. The melon cutter is made of stainless steel, has a soft silicone yellow handle and works fantastic.

This is really an ingenious little device. I watched a youtub video to see just how to use it easily. And it is easy too. The Fresh Tools slicer doesn’t cut too far into the rind either.

To use the watermelon slicer, just cut the watermelon in half at its longest point. I cut it in half the wrong way and it still worked fine, but would have been better cutting at length of the melon. Anyway, once it’s cut in half, work from the middle out. It’s hard to explain so if I were you just search for a youtub video to watch. If you have a round melon it will still work great.

The slicer is also a removal and serving tool. It’s just so cool. I do need a little bit of practice yet. I only used it once. You can use it on any type of melon. Once you have all the slices out of the outer shell, just use the tool to cut into bite size pieces. Clean up was a breeze and I was able to take all the juice left in the melon ½ and pour it into a glass to drink. Normally, it’s all over the cutting board and countertop.

I don’t know how I’ve gone so long without this handy tool. It is going in the top drawer of my utensils. I can’t wait to use the strawberry huller. It is supposed to work on tomatoes and apples too. I’m holding out reservations on the apple. Not so sure on that one, but who knows.

BergKoch Splatter Screen 13″ – Stops 97% of Hot Oil Splash – Protects your Face and Skin from Burns – Splash Guard Keeps Your Kitchen Clean – Ultra Fine Heavy Duty Mesh – Stainless Steel – Warranty

by BergKoch

Kudos BergHock, I love my splatter screen. The BergKoch splatter screen is 13” diameter, stainless steel screen with a handle. It is supposed to stop 97% of hot oil from splattering out of the pan making a big mess and burning oneself. It works! Simple as that, it works.

This splash guard splatter screen is now one of my staples any time I’m frying on the stove. I have also used it on top of boiling water (with hotdogs) to soften up the buns. And the same while frying hamburgers, just before they’re done I place the open buns on the screen and soften them up a little.

Ultra-fine heavy duty mesh screen with a stainless steel frame and heat resistant handle. The stainless part of the handle goes up onto the screen area to be used as resting feet. That’s a nice touch. Can be used as a strainer or a cooling rack. Has a handy loop ant the end to hang for storage. (I keep mine right next to the frying pans.) Universal size can be used on any pan up to 13”. Can be used on a pan without a handle, will not tip, just try to center the screen.

As I said, I love my new splash guard, it really takes the chore out of clean up after cooking.

It’s 5 o’clock somewhere and it’s time for a cocktail (or it’s after 12 noon, time for a drink. I’m from Wisconsin!) I love using this shaker, it works great and I don’t have liquid flying out all over the place. Being stainless steel it really makes the ice work and gets my mixer cold fast.

The Stainless Steel cocktail shaker looks classy and I feel pretty classy too using it. It’s a lot of fun mixing them up with this professional bartender kit.

This SHIKSHOOK stainless shaker is 25 ounces, so it can make several drinks at once. There is a strainer in the top cover if you want to keep the ice out of the finished cocktail. Comes with a double shot glass, also stainless and 2 stainless open pour spouts for bottle tops.

All pieces are stainless and dishwasher safe. Comes with a 100 cocktail recipe book and a lifetime guarantee.

Hint; don’t put soda or other carbonated beverages in and shake. LOL it will explode.

Full Fondant Cake Decorating Tools (53pcs) – Included Fondant Flower Cutters Icing Plunger Cutters Letters and Numbers Mold Fondant Rolling Pin and Smoother by Huixinda

I am very new to Fondant cake decorating. I have tried to make beautiful cakes the old way – regular frostings etc. and was never very good at it. It’s hard for me to hold a steady hand to make all the little flowers, bursts and letters. I was always disappointed with the outcome and finally gave up.
When I found this set I was really amazed to see how much was included. So many tools to take all the hard work out of it. So easy now to just roll out and cut out. Huixinda has made taken my cake decorating to a new level.
So now, I opened the box and checked out all 53 cool pieces. There are flower patterns, leaf patterns, snowflakes, butterflies and so many more (see product description for the complete list). I am however a little confused as to how they expect a person to use the alphabet stencil thing. There are 6 long strips with letters of the alphabet attached, but no way to separate them. Surely we aren’t expected to use while attached. One would have a hard time with that. I will have to have my husband somehow separate each letter from one another before I’m able to use. This whole set came without any type of directions, not usage, washing, dishwasher safe…nothing. Come on folks, a piece of paper doesn’t cost that much. I have no imagination and really need help and ideas. A little recipe book would have been great.
All in all, I like the set. It’s easy to use and clean (except for the alphabet which I’m still in limbo on) and it comes with a lifetime customer service and grantee.

KOSOX In-Drawer Bamboo Knives Holder / Rack / Block, 4-Slots Panels, for Storing Sharpen Knives Safely & Keeping Health Diet Life
by KOSOX

This bamboo knife rack is made well. I like the fact that is anti-microbial, mold proof and durable. It comes in two pieces and is easy to put together, just slide the two pieces together at the slots. As far as it fitting into a drawer, you’ll need to have a deep drawer to put it into. I think it would be a big waist of a drawer. Just would take up too much room for the few knives it would hold.

My knives don’t really fit it well either. Please see the pictures I have attached so you can see what I’m talking about. They seem kind of sloppy, meaning they don’t rest flat so they would stay in the grooves nicely. If you have some knives that are flat where the sharp end of the blade rest on the wood, you’d probably have better luck.

Placing the rack on the counter top also takes up too much room. My kitchen isn’t all that big and I’d rather have extra space on the countertop. I thought maybe mounting it on the wall somehow. It would hold a lot more knives that way. I think it could be done; I’d just have to get some picture hardware and put it on the stand up part of the holder. I don’t think that would be very safe though. (See the pictures where I have the rack propped up.)

I guess I just don’t get this rack. Look it over, maybe it would fit in your kitchen better. As I said, it is made very well.

Safe Buys 4 U would recommend this KOSOX In-Drawer Bamboo Kitchen Holder in the right kitchen.

I gave this 3 stars because it is made well and maybe with the right knives and enough room it would work well for someone.
