Rapid Egg Cooker

Item Weight: 1 pounds
Item model number: DEC005RD

No it’s your eggs, they’re cooked, because some designing genius thought, you know what folks want to hear as they rouse gently from slumber and prepare their breakfast in the lazy morning? A shrill-af non-stop siren that’ll raise your cortisol and maybe gnaw a bit into your mental health. If growing up you ever dashed to open the Microwave before it hit 0, just to spare yourself and your roommates the alarm from that loud microwave beep, boy is this the adult version for you.
I’m honestly surprised not more people have remarked on this. Everyone is like oh good eggs! Perfect poach! Mm eggs! Gee yea the eggs taste good when going down with my heart medication bc that bugger shriek still makes my breath catch. I live in dread of it now. But I also want eggs.
And I guess this does make eggs. It’s $20. It’s a fun size that fits well on the counter. The poached eggs not gonna lie come out a bit …ugly looking, but I just want eggs. Softboiled delivers as promised. The lines seem pretty accurate, I’ve found when I go above or under them, the cook does vary appropriately (under/over).
So I’ll keep it for now until I’m rich enough to afford a better one and also therapy for the siren that haunts my dreams.
Whiskware Pancake Mixer
Product Dimensions:4.3 x 4.3 x 12.5 inches
Item Weight: 3.52 ounces
Manufacturer: Whiskware by BlenderBottle
Item model number: C01397

Pros: It holds quite a bit. I don’t have to reload it as often as I did with my old pen. It’s very stable when loading if you use the back end as a base for the pen to rest in. The cap does a very good job of holding in pancake batter. Wide enough to clean easily by hand. Easy to squeeze. No little rubber rings to lose or trap batter.
Cons: The mixer ball just doesn’t cut it with my pancake recipe. I am back to mixing in a bowl and then pouring the batter in. There are crevices that are tough to clean on both ends. Once you start using the pen, you can’t use the bottom as a base for reloading without it being messy. The opening is a bit large – batter comes out pretty fast compared to other pens.
I never thought I would be a pancake pen person, but years ago I purchased a pen on a whim and ended up using nearly every week. My kids LOVE pancakes. When the plastic split on it, I had to find a new pen. You just can’t fit as many pancakes on the griddle when you’re pouring straight from the bowl! There are definitely some advantages to this pen over my old one, especially when it comes to cleaning it and its large capacity.
I’ve tried using the ball to mix my batter several times, but I could never get it to mix well. It may just be that I’m using a recipe that’s too thick for it (I make pancakes with whole wheat flour and flax seed meal). If you’re using a store-bought mix, it may work fine.
The tip is definitely larger than other pens I’ve used, so it doesn’t have quite the same level of control you’d find in other pancake pens. I haven’t tried it with any of my pancake molds, and I’m guessing that it would be a bit trickier to use with more delicate molds. It does a great job with regular pancakes and the waffle iron, though.The body of the pen seems like it’ll last quite a while.
If you want to do pancake art, go elsewhere. But if you want a pen to speed up your breakfast by getting as many pancakes onto the griddle as you can (without lots of drips on the counter), this pen will serve you well
FastCut Herb Mincer

I read a lot of reviews that said it was dangerously sharp, and I can tell you that is an understatement! I think the blade cover was purposely designed to get you bleeding! Instead of a central located knob away from the blades, the tabs to get hold of it to pull it off or replace it are on the far outside edges right next to the blades.
I was very careful when I first removed the cover because of the reviews and I still cut myself, badly! After the bleeding stopped 30 minutes later, I got out a pair of leather gloves to work with the thing. Bottom line is I love this thing, it works great but you must be cautious when using. I have procedures I use now that I highly recommend following. When taking the cover on or off, or when disassembling for cleaning you should ALWAYS WEAR LEATHER GLOVES!!! Not jerseys or cottons because this thing will cut right through them! I cannot stress enough how sharp the cutter blades are! When I have it fully configured to use and only need to touch the handle that is when I remove the gloves, any other time they are on. I know it sounds scary and dangerous, but don’t let it keep you from trying this tool because it works great and is very useful. It just needs to be handled safely
FreshForce Citrus Juicer
Item Weight: 10.6 ounces
Item model number:102-159-017
Customer Reviews: 1,451 customer reviews 4.5 out of 5 stars
Effectiveness The dual-gear design of this juicer increases the power when you squeeze the handles together. This feature is the main differences between this product and other hand held citrus juicers on the market. How I have experienced this is that I get more juice from the fruit while using less effort. When I take the juiced lemon out it has almost dry pulp left on the rind which indicates that all the juice has been squeezed from that lemon. Usually it would take a forceful grip to get that result with other hand held juicers.
Durability Every time I use our juicer it feels like it is brand new. There is no feeling or indication that it is losing its function or becoming less stable. I use this juicer for on average four meals a week, using 3 lemons or limes each meal; cut those citrus in half to juice them and once could calculate that I operate this juicer on average 24 times a week. That is roughly 96 times a month and 1,152 times in one year…holiday dishes not included! I have owned and used this juicer at this pace for two years and it is as effective and sturdy as the day FedEx placed it on my porch. In the event that I manage to break this product it comes with a lifetime warranty.
Materials The rounded handles, gears and juice filter are made of a hard plastic which the company states is BPA and melamine free. The screws and press are sturdy metal. The metal does increase the weight of the product, however it is still easily held and operated in one hand. Ours has gone through the dishwasher high temp wash and heat dry cycle with no damage, melting or morphing.
Cleaning As mentioned above I have cleaned this juicer in a high temperature dishwasher and it has held its integrity. Most often I hand wash it because the product is easy to thoroughly clean. The gear opens to an angle that allows easy sponge access to all of the juicer’s parts. Rinsing the juice, pulp and soap away is also made easy because of the open angle allowed by the gear. There are no pieces of this product that you can not fully see accept for where two stabilizing screws fix the press to the handles. I like that I can see all of the parts in case pulp is caught somewhere and needs to be rinsed away. Overall its design reduces the chance of bacterial breeding grounds.
Storage The juicer fits easily in our 3” high drawer. The bottom of the juice filter has two nodules which help prop the juicer upright and keep it from sliding all over or jamming the drawer.

I just received this yesterday and it may be my favorite kitchen device ever! And yes, it really is an OXO Good Grips Product. As others have written, the directions on how to use weren’t that clear, so I found a 1-minute YouTube video, and Voila: 15 minutes later I was finished making my my first Zoodles. I used 2-medium size zucchini & it was really easy. To clean, I used an old toothbrush with soap & water. I love that it’s so small. The last thing I need is another big kitchen device taking up space. You have to use a little muscle, so if you have arthritis in your hands, this probably isn’t the product for you. But, it works great for me!
Presse Salad Spinner
Product Dimensions: 11.4 x 11.4 x 6.3 inches ; 2.71 pounds
Item model number: PL8-1700ML
26 customer reviews
This salad spinner is a much more attractive design than other salad spinners I’ve had in the past. And more efficient! Even when I jammed it entirely full of kale (even I thought I had put too much in there), it spun all the water out. Like a boss! I love salad. I eat it all the time. And I buy organic farm-fresh veggies that often still have dirt on them. I like dirt, but my guests don’t always like it. This is going to cut down on my prep time significantly.
I also like that there are three pieces that all easily come apart for cleaning, BUT the spinner feels entirely stable during the spinning process.
This is a good one!

just love these bowls for rinsing just about everything. I have used for shrimp, fruits, veggies, and pasta.
Soak and tilt or with shrimp fill and rinse with running water, nothing can run over the edge. I picked up this green one at Amazon, I got the same size in red at Kohls that came with a smaller white one in a set.
I recommended and two people I know have already got some. The different sized ones do nest for storage. The bottom has a nonslip rubbery material, nice grip handle.
