Disposable Clear Plastic Cups Offered by eLuxury Supply

Disposable Clear Plastic Cups for Iced Coffee Bubble Boba Tea Smoothie, 12 oz – 100 Sets with Flat Lids
Offered by eLuxury Supply

cupppI love these awesome cups. I use them every morning for my smoothies and iced coffee. The domed lid is the best part because it allows me to add more than I would be able to with a regular cup AND has a hole for my straw. That makes it especially convenient to drink while I’m on the go. The cups are sturdy and well made.

I see that the listing now says that they come with flat lids, but mine were definitely domed as you can see in the photos. There are 100 12oz cups so they will last me for a very long time. I would recommend this to anyone who makes smoothies or coffee drinks and consumes them on the go and to people who are planning parties and events because these would also be useful for feeding large groups. I received this product at a discounted price in exchange for an honest review.

I think that every Whovian needs this tumbler in their life! I received this product at a discounted price in exchange for an honest review.

Reusable and Portable Neoprene Lunch Tote with Heavy Duty Offered by NOBOUND

Reusable and Portable Neoprene Lunch Tote with Heavy Duty Zipper for Both Men and Women – Bag Designed to Stretch for Big Healthy Meals on the Go (Floral)
Offered by NOBOUND

I carry food with me wherever I go because I like to at least attempt to be healthy, so I need a lunch bag that I can rely on. I also want a bag that is cute so I feel proud to carry it. This is the perfect bag for me because it is both good looking and well made. As you can see in the photos, it is roomy enough to fit an entire meal or just snacks and drinks. The zipper makes it even more convenient to carry because if the bag accidentally tips over, the contents won’t just fly out.

The material is soft and flexible which is nice because a lot of bags are bulky and take up too much space. This bag will extend a bit or can be made to be more compact, depending on my specific needs for that day. I like that the material is easily washable so I can keep the bag looking nice and new. The description says that it is insulated which I was unsure about since the material didn’t feel like it had an extra layer in it. However, it kept my food cool for hours so I’m guessing that it is insulated well enough!

I highly recommend this to people with special dietary needs, especially those like me who don’t want to sacrifice aesthetic appeal for convenience. I received this product at a discounted price in exchange for an honest review.

One Step No – Rinse Cleanser 16 OZ Offered by HomeBrew4Less

One Step No – Rinse Cleanser 16 OZ
Offered by HomeBrew4Less

My husband brews his own beer and this no rinse cleanser has been a great addition to his supply. As you “brew masters” know, sanitizing your equipment is a necessary part of the process. If for some reason you lose the no rinse cleanser that comes with your kit, you cannot really make beer without it. That is why I got this 16oz package of it for my fiance- just in case!

This is a large package that comes with enough no rinse cleanser to make 32 gallons of beer! If you have the standard 2 gallon Mr. Beer system like my fiance does, that is 16 batches! I would highly recommend this to anyone who brews their own beer as a backup for the no rinse cleanser that comes with many refills because unexpected problems could arise with your cleanser and you cannot brew your beer without properly sanitizing everything.

GREAT GLOVE Nitrile Industrial Grade Foodservice Glove (Pack of 100)

These gloves are fantastic! I wear them to clean my cats’ litter boxes daily. They fit well and they are strong and do not tear while I am using them, which is essential. They make me feel like I am well protected from any gross things that I may come into contact with while cleaning the litter boxes. My husband also uses them and he love them. Obviously they could be used for many other things since they are latex-free, powder-free and food safe, but that is what we currently use them for and they work perfectly for us!

30 oz Vacuum Insulated Double Wall Stainless Steel Wide Mouth Water Bottle Offered by SCLR Group

30oz Vacuum Insulated Double Wall Stainless Steel Wide Mouth Water Bottle Premium Glossy Finish
Offered by SCLR Group

bottle1Let me tell you how impressive this insulated bottle is. My husband and I were out all day yesterday, starting early in the morning. I filled the bottle with ice cold water and put it in my car around 8am. I placed it in the back seat of my car and unfortunately forgot about it. That means that it sat in my hot car for hours, sometimes in direct sunlight. Oops! Around 6pm when we were coming home, my scatterbrain remembered that it was back there and I was thirsty so I reached for it, expecting to take a gulp of hot or at least lukewarm water. I was absolutely shocked when the water was STILL ICE COLD! I passed it to my husband without telling him what to expect and he was very surprised too! He asked if I had refilled it somewhere along the way because there was no way it could still be so cold.

I have never tried another insulated bottle that could do what this bottle did, so I am certainly a believer! Aside from its impressive ability to keep my drink cold all day in a hot car, the bottle is also nice because of the way that it’s made. It’s sturdy and large, but still a good side to carry along with me all day. It’s comfortable to hold in my hand and I like the way that the bottle cap twists on securely and stays in place. The Tipsy Chef logo is super cute and I don’t mind showing it off so that is a plus! I highly recommend this bottle to everyone who likes to stay hydrated on the go, especially if you plan on being outside in the heat and still want to have a cold drink handy.

Cooking thermometer offered by I-Melodious

Cooking thermometer offered by I-Melodious

therm1I cook a lot of meat so it is important to have a good quality thermometer to make sure that everything is at safe temperatures. This thermometer is accurate when compared to other working thermometers that I own. The difference in temperature was within 2 degrees Fahrenheit, so I am confident that the temperature reading is correct. The thermometer is lightweight and doesn’t seem super sturdy, but I have not had issues with it breaking or bending, so it must be made well. The controls are easy to use and the buttons are clearly labeled. The temperature is not instant. It does take a few seconds to get a reading- generally 30-60 seconds. I recommend this to anyone who cooks regularly. I received this product at a discounted price in exchange for an honest review.

Mandoline Slicer Offered by Brieftons

Brieftons Mandoline Slicer: Adjustable Mandolin with 3 Thickness Settings, 4 Blades, Food Container, Safety Food Holder, Bonus Peeler – All-in-One Vegetable Cutter, Slicer, Grater & Julienne Slicer
Offered by Brieftons

Unfortunately I had a lot of trouble with this slicer. It seemed like a nice product at first since it comes with a lot of different settings plus a container to catch sliced food, but the dial got stuck and I could not adjust it. I contacted customer service and they were not helpful. I enjoy eating vegetables and would have loved to get a lot of use out of this slicer but it did not seem to be a good quality product. I received this product at a discounted price in exchange for an honest review.

Plastimade Zip ‘n Close Storage Bags Quart 25 Bags Pack Of 1 Offered by Quality – Disposables

Plastimade Zip ‘n Close Storage Bags Quart 25 Bags Pack Of 1
Offered by Quality – Disposables

I use these storage bags for my husband’s lunch every day since we buy large slices of bread and they are the perfect size for his sandwiches. The bags are 7 by 8 inches and they close securely with the zip locking top. I like the quart size for my husband sandwiches but I will probably be ordering other sizes to store different types of food in. The bags are reasonably price in comparison to well known brands that you find on grocery store shelves, so I prefer these now instead of the national brands.

The bags are thin but no more so than other brands. They are sturdy enough to roll around in my husband’s lunch box all day and still be secured with no perforations. I highly recommend these to anyone who packs lunches or pre-measures and stores other food items. I received this product at a discounted price in exchange for an honest review.

Inflame Butane Culinary Torch for Brazing, Soldering, and Jewelry Making. Offered by Interfused, Inc.

Inflame Butane Culinary Torch for Home Kitchen and Chefs. Blow Torch for Brazing, Soldering, and Jewelry Making. FREE Creme Brulee Recipe Included!
Offered by Interfused, Inc.

I am very happy with this little butane torch! I love making my own jewelry and I have been looking for a well-made torch that is both safe and reliable so I can have peace of mind while I create beautiful things. I am happy to say that I have found exactly the right tool for me. I will walk you through exactly how to use the torch, and please watch the video that I have included as well for a demonstration.

The first thing that you need to do is fill your torch with butane lighter fluid. To do that, turn the torch upside down and attach a butane lighter fluid filler to it and fill as you would fill a lighter or similar tool. After you have filled it, replace the bottom cover and move the to “on.” To create a flame, press the trigger button. To adjust the size of the flame, use the dial on the back of the torch. When you are finished using the torch, release the trigger and move the switch to “off.” Allow the torch to cool before you store it in a safe place. It is really that simple!

The torch is a very versatile tool. It can be used for everything from jewelry making and metal work to cooking. I highly recommend this to chefs and craft lovers alike. I received this product at a discounted price in exchange for an honest review.
