Curious Chef Review and Giveaway

So because I am working for a group of fantastic foodie bloggers on From Blah to Ta-Daa , we all had the chance to test and review some items from Curious Chef.
**and we each get to give some away!!!**

I was super excited and so was lovebug because she LOVES to help me cook "cook EEN" as she says.



We were sent the following to test and review:

  • Kitchen Timer
Photobucket
  • Nylon Frosting Spreader
Photobucket
  • Veggetable Scrubber
Photobucket

  • Non Stick Rolling Pin
Photobucket

I have to start this review out with the products because she was so DARN cute when we got the items let alone got to use them.
She opened the box and pulled out the kitchen timer and shouted "CLOCK"




and then opened the frosting spreader and didn't know what it was.





She opened the fruit and veggie scrubber and shouted "BRUSH"







and she opened the rolling pin and shouted "ROLLING PIN!"





I laughed so hard, I had know idea she knew what a rolling pin was... and the "clock" and "brush" was just silly. She was super excited, then I showed her the bubble wrap LOL That was entertaining for a while.



Kitchen Timer:

We love the kitchen timer, we always use the oven for a timer and always use a second timer... Lovebug loves useing the timer and knowing when to run back into the kitchen to continue to help mom with the "COOK EEN"


Nylon Spreader:

Again lovebug was a huge hit with the frosting spreader, we use it on bread and butter, or frosting or anything else that has "sauce" (she says) to spread, it was completely managable with her little two year old hands, it has no SHARP edges so it is safe for her to use without me feeling like she could hurt herself, and she really loves using it because she knows it's her very own!

Photobucket


Veggetable Scrubber:

Photobucket


Photobucket

This is by far our favorite product!!!!!!! by far because we have seriously used it like EVERY single day. We FIND things for her to scrub just to include her in the cooking. Lovebug has scrubbed, potatoes, carrots, broccolli, lemons, strawberries, & a banana... yes we understand bananas don't need to be scrubbed but if it keeps the 2 yr old happy you just DO IT!

Photobucket

In Fact she even scrubbed the cutting board after I was done using it to cut carrots LOL

Photobucket


Non Stick Rolling Pin:

Photobucket

Photobucket

We had a lot of fun with the rolling pin, it didn't stick at all, it was fun to see her go to town with it back and forth and stretch out my dough and make it all oblong since she could only back and forth one direction LOL It will require a bit more practice, but to help cooking it was fantastic!!! If the recipe I used hadn't had so many steps and if I wasn't cooking for 14 people who were waiting on me because of some car trouble then I would have continued to show her how to switch directions and do it evenly.... but life happens and it doesn't always happen the way we want.

Curious Chef has been nice enough to offer all the girls from Blah to Ta-Daa items to review and each of us have a giveaway too!!!

I have this cute lemon shaped cutting board up for grabs.
