Review - KidKraft Table and Chair Set



I purchased this table and chair set for my 3 year old and 5 year old daughters last Christmas.  To be honest, I didn't expect too much when I purchased it, as the price was so low compared with other leading brands. But when the package arrived and the assembly was done, I was really thrilled.

Cuisinart GR-4N 5-in-1 Griddler - A Space Saver for Small Kitchens


I was hesitant to purchase this grill because I feared it might not accomplish what I desired. I wanted a "real" panini grill that would cook sandwiches like the restaurants, without the expense or space required for a commercial grill costing five or six times as much. To my surprise, the griddler does the job.

An Easy Organizer: Sterilite 4-Shelf Utility Cabinet with Putty Handles 01428501


I was looking for an inexpensive way to store my canned goods and stuff, as I have limited cupboard space in my kitchen. Most of these types of affordable cabinets are made of particle wood. They are heavy, and the assembly process is complicated. Then I found this Sterilite plastic cabinet online.  Due to the great reviews, i purchased one to give it a try.

Make Healthy Snacks with Nesco 600-Watt Food Dehydrator


My kids have a restless reaction to foods that contain red dye 40.  We figured we could entertain their cravings by making homemade fruit leathers. The ability to make jerky was a bonus for me. I ordered another brand that I thought was going to do the job, but once it arrived I found the construction to be subpar and it was passive, requiring rotation of the trays. I immediately returned it and purchased Nesco unit instead.

I got this cookware set  as a Christmas gift 2 years ago, and I've been using it everyday since then. It includes a 1, 2,and 6 quart covered pot, a 3-quart covered saute, and a 8.5 and 10 inch skillet. This is exactly what I wanted in a cookware set, and appears to be a real quality product.

Ninja Master Prep Blender QB900B


I bought this blender as I was about to go on a diet that required a lot of smoothie making. My sister has been using Ninja for over 3 years and she highly recommended it to me. I checked online and was surprised to see that this machine was listed as a "best Buy" in Consumer Reports, so I decided to give it a try.
