Awesome Little Kitchen Tools from KitchenIQ

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 love it when I have new tools in the kitchen because it inspires me to cook.  I prepared one of my family's favorite dish when I received these products, sauteed mung beans.
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.
Even my daughter got excited because the next time she makes this Lime-Vanilla cupcake, she would be able to use it.
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.
I haven't use the Mini-Prep 3-in-1 tool but I am sure that this would really come in handy.  I am planning to make a pot roast tomorrow so I will update this with my own photo.  For now, I am sharing a photo I took from KitchenIQ website.  As you can see, there is a brush on one side which serves as a tool to clean  potato or carrot skin.  Then on the other side, it has the peeler and in the middle, there is a dicing blade that you can use to dice any kind of veggies.  This versatile little tool can clean and scrub, peel, slice, dice and chop any veggie! Whether preparing a nutritious smoothie, making vegetable soup or just fixing leftovers – this tool can handle it all.
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.
