I was recently contacted by CSN and offered a product to either review or giveaway. Being the nice person I am, I really wanted to be able to review something and giveaway something. And they were happy to work with me on that! It took me days to decided what I wanted to order, because they have so much to choose from! They have kitchen items, home furnishings, baby stuff, and so so so much more. I finally decided on a few kitchen items, because I knew they would get use.
I've been wanting a new rubber scraper/spatula. I only have one and it was getting used a lot. So I found a cool looking Calphalon Silicone Medium Scraper. It's heat resistant up to 500* so I would be able to use it while cooking and not worry about melting it. It's the perfect size for everyday cooking and dishwasher safe. I've now used it when making pancake batter, mixing together ingredients, and making cakes. It's exactly what I needed.
I also ordered something else. I love my Pyrex baking dishes but having only one 9x13 and one 8x8 wasn't enough because often one was dirty when I needed it or I needed 2 for what I was making. So I found a Pyrex 5 Piece Bakeware Set. Included in the set is one 9x13 pan with lid, one 7x11 pan, one 8x8 pan, and one loaf pan. I was mostly interested in the loaf pan because I hate how rusty my metal loaf pans get. Unfortunately I haven't made bread since getting them so I haven't been able to try it out yet, but I have used the 9x13 and 8x8. I seriously love Pyrex glass baking pans. For one they don't rust like metal pans. Two, food doesn't stick to it as much as my other pans. And three, they are easy to clean. Plus they look so nice!
So I am very happy with the items I chose to review. They are exactly what I wanted and I know they will get much use.
