Personal Experience With A Top Toaster

kitchenaid-toaster

A couple of months back, I decided my family definitely needed a toaster upgrade. Apparently! Every morning, we struggled with time because we were all in a rush, wanted our toast but our toaster then only had two slots available. When the “Ting!” goes off, everyone screams, “That’s mine!” What a dilemma! Aside from that, I noticed that the slots of my toaster were narrow and the thicker slices of bread would be so much harder to get in. That was it! I needed a four slice toaster with wider openings. Immediately!

So, I checked out the toasters and was in awe. How awesome were some of them!
There were so many to choose from the top bread toasters in 2016 and, honestly, a lot many of them looked great. I didn’t know where to start and how to pick. I felt like a kid in a candy store. However, I ended up picking the one that I felt fit what I needed and would look best in my kitchen; and so, I decided on what the sales clerk said was one of the top KitchenAid toasters available. Of course, its nice look and design appealed to me as well and the countdown timer wasn’t bad and when I began using it, it did not disappoint. The old one I had was the white, regular push-down, twist the knob kind of toaster. I thought this looked really good and hoped then that it functioned even better.

Today, I am really happy with my decision and love the new toaster. It works really well for me and my family and makes sure we all get our toasts warm and fresh in the morning. After a few days of using it, I even realized it had a keep warm, defrost and reheat button. I really thought only microwaves could do that and we all know not to put our toasts in there.

The Kitchen Samurai-Made in Germany!

You need a knife! (are you looking at my face right now? sticking up the Dwayne Jackson eyebrow? Trying to drop a rhyme again on everything)… Anyone who loves their kitchen put your hands up now. Ok thank you. Now, everyone has their own story of how they met and fell in love with their knives right? And this is mine.

I took it upon myself to find my partner, not in that way, but in the kitchen. My wife doesn’t know whether to hate me or stop eating? Yeah I’m that guy, I cook a lot. We actually sat down together on this and went searching on Google for the best rated kitchen knife set and found this website, Pcn Chef. The surprise on my face?! Well her face too!

There are people who love their kitchens out there in the world. And did you know that kitchen knives have categories? And blade sizes? And compete on sharpness, stability, the feel in your hand, whether you’re right handed or left handed? So to cut the story shot I get a birthday gift from my wife a few months later and BAM! There comes my Messermeister Meridian Elite 9-Inch Chef Knife ( I do the dance, eh… eh… eh…).

The Messermeister Meridian Elite is a Japanese style kitchen made in, wait for it… Germany! Right?
This line is one of their best ones yet (What? Hell yeah, I went back and Googled it myself! How in the world I’m supposed to know that they could make Japanese kitchen knives in Germany? And do it so good… and she Googled for the 3rd best knife in Germany?) Oh yeah, I found out Wusthof and Henkel were bigger names there who also have their own lines of Japanese kitchen knives (at the same place – Solingen). I love my Meridian Elite because of the following reasons.

The Messermeister Meridian Elite has high versatility. You can use it to cut just about everything in kitchen.

The design used on the Meridian Elite is exquisite and flawless. The handle is hand polished to a fine finish and the blade is hand sharpened to 15% meaning you can slice and dice through everything in your kitchen. I have used mine to cut meat, curve out turkey, cut vegetables, mince, split chicken, chop, peel, and even used it once to fillet fish.

The blade has a sharp tip which come in handy when cutting into hard food stuff like melons where you have to stub from the top first and slide the knife down the sides. The handle just fits into your hands and you can have a tight firm grip for steady cuts. It really is a good choice and one of the best kitchen knives.

My Personal Experience with Wheat Grass Juicers

As you have likely experienced before, when buying a kitchen appliance there several different models and makes of an electronic available to choose. When it comes to buying wheatgrass juicers the situation is the same. Getting the best wheatgrass juicer is important since consuming wheat grass has several benefits well known all over the world. The health benefits are accrued to the nutrients contained which are very volatile especially enzymes.

I find that using a standard blender for your wheatgrass makes enzymes to oxidize because of friction between the wheatgrass and the high speed turning blades; where all the power from the wheat grass is taken away. Moreover, I find that standard wheat grass juicers are not made to blend high fiber content thus may clog the juicer. In addition, the blade’s high speed is prone to wear and tear and subjected to early breakdown. Therefore, juicer reviews are helpful in getting a quality wheatgrass juicer, you can look at this website Euro Juices.

Prior to purchasing I considered my budget since the cost of juicers range significantly with some costing as little as $50 and others up to $500. Just like most kitchen appliances you get the quality for what you pay for. However, it does not imply that the most costly at the store is the always the best.

I also wondered whether I would buy a manual juicer or an electrical power. I find that a manual juicer is ideal if the machine will be used precisely for wheatgrass. An electrical power offers the biggest flexibility where you can blend other leafy greens such as carrots, apples and spinaches. (More: http://www.wikihow.com/Juice-Wheatgrass)

The whole essence of the getting one of the wheatgrass juicers is to get a machine which prevent destruction of vital enzymes or nutrients by not overheating. However, today I find fun in wheatgrass juicing thanks to the wheatgrass juicer.

My cheap sewing machine has made me learn and perfect sewing over the years

embroidered

I have been sewing for years now. I sew during my pastime, and sew anything that fancies me. Sometimes i sew quilts, other times I make dresses for my grandchildren or skirts for myself. I have also tried stitching shirts for my husband, but normally hem his trousers. I do not like the fancy new machines with various functions that will hardly be used by me. I like cheap sewing machines since I prefer stitching old style where I use my hands more. (Check out this link)

The machine I have also does embroidery work and makes quilts. It has a large warp that lets thick fabrics go in with ease. This is essential when stitching quilts. It also has an attached extended platform that allows me to stitch straight without drawing in additional bundles of cloth to start stitching a new batch. In fact, the machine can easily pass off as an expensive model with its features. It is considered the best among cheap sewing machines by many, and is rated very high by users. It is portable, and I move it easily around from one corner of the room to the other.

My husband has been encouraging me for quite some time to take sewing classes for people interested in learning the art. Some of my friends come over during the afternoons anyway to see how I work. They have also said that this is a brilliant idea, that they are willing to join my class. I have decided to use the basement as my classroom since it can accommodate close to 15 persons with ease. I am expecting beginners to join my class, so there is really no point in training them with the fancy new machines. This weekend I am going to shift my old machine to the basement, and start my sewing class early next month. I will encourage them to go for cheap sewing machines to let them be more innovative and learn the art of sewing sooner rather than relying on programmed options to do the work for them.

A little help from a portable vacuum cleaner

vacMy portable vacuum cleaner saves me from small dirt everyday here at home. Anyone who has children knows that after meals and snacks always rolls meal on the floor, and even we adults also make dirt.

I remember when my grandfather passing the witch on the carpet to get the crumbs. I thought it was boring as a child through because I had not my own home, no notion about it, but now I understand well.

The C already know how to use the vacuum and when caught already want to leave going alone. Great !

In kindergarten they had C mop, vacuum cleaner and these things from home, and she liked to play. So I guess she thinks it’s a joke, but I leave it clear that it messed have to clean as here at home is not who arrange everything every day.

I had a little old and simple portable vacuum for many years, and the poor man was already powerless. Last year I bought this and really recommend it. The price is affordable, cleaner and is powerful, discreet and small even.
