First of all, I would like to thank Ms. Fields for sending me these awesome little tools for my kitchen. I received five multi-purpose tools to review and I couldn't be happier as all of them are great addition for my cooking to be easier and more fun. I got Zester, Cheese Grater, knife sharpener, 3-in-1 mini prep, and ginger grater.
We have a sharpener that came with the knife set that we bought but to be able to use it effectively., you have to be in the right angle to achieve the right sharpness that you want and oftentimes, I failed to achieve that. I always wait for my husband to do it for me. But now that I have this Deluxe Edge Grip Knife Sharpener from KitchenIQ I can always o it anytime I want without a problem. It is so easy to use
There's two stages of sharpening. Thiere is a coarse for dull knives and fine for finishing and light touch ups. You can use the fine slot for serrated knives which I really like.
I absolutely love this sharpener. When my husband came home, it was the first thing that he noticed. He said that her Mom used to have a sharpener like this and she always used it to sharpened their kitchen knives.
I hate when my knife is so dull because cutting veggies is frustrating but with a sharp knife, it is a lot easier and faster.
I have mentioned in my previous posts that we started making our lemon water since there is an abundance source of lime nowadays. The Better Zester will be put to use from now on min making our lemon water. What I love about this zester is that, it comes with a storage container with squegee. I have never seen one like this before in the store so I am pretty impressed. And oh, the blades are really sharp. Aside from the container, it also comes with a cover on top of the blade so when you are not suing it, it is safe to store and won't cut your hand if you accidentally grab it.
I used it for the first time when I cooked the other day and man oh man, the blade really is sharp. It really does the job really well.
Another essential ingredient in our kitchen that I always use is ginger so I am super happy to have this Grate Ginger Tool. Now, this is not a regular grater that you buy in store because this can peel, slice, grate and juice fresh ginger and other aromatics like garlic, all of these tasks in one tool. Pretty Cool huh?
As I've mentioned above, ginger is one product that we usually use here at home especially during the winter. I always make ginger tea because it helps us not to get cold or flu. I always have ginger in the refrigerator or in the freezer because I use it every time I make a dish with fish. It makes the dish tastes better and it also eliminates the fishy taste .
The blade is super sharp and I love that it has cover for the blade so when you are not suing it, you can safely put the lid back and nobody gets cut. As you can see in the photo, one side is for grating and one side is for slicing. I love that the container in the middle is super easy to slide when you have to take the ginger or garlic that you sliced or grated.
Another favorite dish if both my kids and husband is sauteed sardines with veggies.
I remember the first time I made sardines, I thought for sure that my husband would not like it because he is not very fond of fish but gladly, he loved it! So now, it became one of the regular dishes that I make when I miss home or when they crave for it.
UPDATE: The 3-in-1 tool was perfect to clean the carrots that we harvested from our garden. My son had a ball using it, he cleaned almost all of these carrots.
The cutter did a really great job in chopping the ends of the carrots.
The last but not the least awesome tool that I got is this Cheese grater. Just like the zester, it also has a lid on top of the blade which is really nice. We normally use grated cheese because we don't have grater but now that we do, I think that I will start buying the whole cheese.
These grater is not only good for cheese but can also be used for chocolates, veggies like peppers, carrots, cucumbers, coconut, nuts, ginger, and garlic. This would be grate to use when I make achara again. I am so looking forward to that, I just have to look for kohlrabi.
Thank you once again Ms. Fields and KitchenIQ! It's so awesome to work with you. Looking forward to working with you again in the future. You can visit the website through the link above if you want to learn more about KitcheIQ.
