PASITO KS3G KS Knife 3-Stage Sharpening Tool with Diamond, Coarse-Tungsten and Fine Ceramic Slots, 3 Groove

I received this knife sharpener a few days ago, and have used it before cutting pork. After sharpening the knife, it cut through the pork loin like butter.

It is a sturdy product, and doesn’t slip. It has 3 slots, and you pull your knife through each one, 3 times, to get a perfect blade.

Do this on a flat surface, and hold the handle, which is comfortable.

I even tried cutting frozen fruit, and it went through the easiest ever.  That’s great, because I use it often on breakfast, and in whey protein shakes.

I am very happy with it, and won’t be throwing any knives away in the future.

Sunday dinner is still English in this house.





Having moved to the U.S. 30 years ago, both my husband and I, lived a long time in England. He was 54, and I was 40 when we came here.

It doesn’t matter that the temperature is in the 90’s in Florida. I still had the oven on for 3 hours this afternoon.

Pork, stuffing, roast potatoes, carrots, peas, cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, Brussel sprouts, and OXO (beef) gravy.

While the oven was on, I also made my husband 12 double sized no sugar added cupcakes.

This is a ritual, and although it may not be every Sunday, I cook this way as often as time allows. I have enough vegetables for several other meals, as I always eat healthy. My husband ate all his big dinner. I ate half, and it was amazing.

CJHFAMILY Knife Sharpener for Straight Knives 3 Stage Diamond Coated Sharpening Wheel System, Cut-Resistant.

I was happy to receive the CJHFAMILY Knife Sharpener with a cut-resistant glove included.

I already have both items, but my girlfriend doesn’t have either.  This knife sharpener is slightly smaller than mine, but at a considerably cheaper price.

However, I have to say that the quality is good.  I took out some knives that I hadn’t used recently, and sharpened them.  For safety reasons you can put the glove on the hand, you are holding it with, but that really isn’t necessary.

The blades come up really well, and it is ‘designed to last a lifetime’.  Therefore you really can’t not buy it for the low price of just $10.99.  That is almost a third of the price of my other one.

Also being small is takes up less room, than many of the other brands.

The hand fits the grips perfectly.  I like the metal stand, and also the nonslip underneath to it.  Being black, and metal makes it look an elegant product..

I did receive mine at a discount, but feel that it is certainly worth the Amazon price.


Meal Prep Containers, Epboru [20 Pack] 3 Compartment Food Storage Reusable Lunch Boxes.

I do a lot of cooking, as my husband has diabetes, heart failure, and kidney disease, just to name a few.  I cook in bulk, as we used to own a restaurant, and find it easier to do big batches of food.

That is when the Epboru 20 pack of 3 compartment Food Storage Lunch Boxes, come in really useful.  They are microwave, dishwasher, and freezer Safe, as well as being BPA free.  Also the size allows for regular size portions.  They stack into each other, which is great when your cupboards are well stacked.

I pulled out one today with curry, and rice in it.  That will be my dinner for tonight.  I will just reheat it in the microwave.

If you have children, or go to work, these are perfect for your food.  Also is you are watching your weight, they would make a great portion control container.

All in all, I am very pleased with them, and they will save me using my freezer bag machine.  Those rolls of bags cost a lot of money.  Being reusable makes them perfect for any kitchen.

I did receive mine for free, and have tested them well, before writing my review.

Chef Remi Latest Instant Read Digital Cooking Thermometer | Lifetime Replacement Warranty |Perfect for Oven, Oil, Barbecues, Baking, Making Candy, Meat, Turkey or Any Kitchen Tasks |Rated No.1 Grill Accessories

I love the Chef Remi line of kitchen products.  Back in August, 2015 I bought a thermometer from them, and recently it kept showing an error.  They immediately sent me the Chef Remi Latest Instant Red Digital Cooking Thermometer, that comes with a lifetime replacement warranty.  You certainly can’t beat that.

As with all their products, it works perfectly, and easy to use.  Today I was making a pork loin casserole, and I got an instant reading from the thermometer.

I can certainly recommend all the Chef Remi products, and their customer service.  There was no hesitation, they sent it out to me, free of charge.




Strawberry Halo E-Z Seal Re-Seal Reusable Peva Storage Bag kit (5 Pack) ideal for Food snacks, Lunch sandwiches, Make-up, Stationery, Travel Storage, Home organisation and more

I use so many Ziplock bags, which end up getting thrown away, as they are single use.  When I saw the Strawberry Halo E-Z Seal re-seal reusable Peva Storage Bags, I thought ‘Great’ less landfill.

They are see through, and come in 2 handy sizes.  There are 2 of the Snack bag 8.5″ x 4.75″, and 3 of the Lunch bag is 8.5″ x 7.25″.  They have an excellent thick seal to them, which doesn’t leak.

I have tried them with water, just as an experiment, and no leakage.  Then with food.  You can see the leftover hot dogs, in one of my photos.  They are also great for the office, keep desks tidy, and everything together.  Ladies, all of your

travel makeup would fit in either size, depending on how much you take.

There are so many other uses for them, and I am sure that everyone can come up with different ones.

They are food grade quality, BPA free, are freezer safe, and travel friendly.  They are completely airtight.

A little from the Amazon webpage:

  • ‘Leak-proof lock seals in freshness and is perfect for Make-up, Make-up Brushes, Food storage, Baby Pacifiers, Stationery and much more…
  • Capable of holding liquid without spillage Pack of 5 reusable zip seal bags (3 lunch size, 2 snack size)-the perfect solution for plastic bag waste
  • Freezer safe and hand washable Made of FDA-grade PEVA material (which is also PVC, BPA and Lead free)’

I am loving using them, and thinking about getting more, as the savings of not buying throw away bags, would pay for them  over time.  I did receive mine at a discounted price, but feel that these are a great value product at $17.99, with Amazon Prime.

Reusable Ice Packs for Lunch Boxes and Coolers, Small, Lightweight, Long-Lasting Blue Ice Packs

We go to our timeshare for our weeks, and also for board meetings, and stay over.  I have to make sure my husband’s insulin stays cool, and have a small ice box for it.  I used to use bulky ice packs, up until I received the Shukawi Quality Products Reusable Ice Packs for lunch boxes, coolers, etc.

They are blue, and ultra thin, making them so much lighter to carry.  I love the holes in them, as sometimes when I pick up the thicker ones, my fingers/hands can almost stick to them, and it feels like a freezer burn.  This doesn’t happen with these ones.

Also keeping them in the freezer allows me extra space for actual food.

A little from the Amazon webpage:

 This SLIM design of 7″ x 4.8″ x 0.7″ THIN ICE PACKS only takes MINIMUM SPACE in your lunchbox, bento or cooler.

  • Non toxic, no harmful chemicals, BPA-free and an absolutely reusable SAFE choice for your health, as well as the health of your family, friends and pets.
  • Slim, Reusable and made from materials ensuring DURABILITY and LONGEVITY’.

They have an unconditional 100% Money Back Guarantee, so I am really happy to recommend them to you.  I did receive mine at a discounted price, but believe that over time you would reap the benefit of paying $13.90 for a pack of 4.

PPONE Ice Cream Scoops – with Good Grips (Blue)

I have thrown away my other ice cream scoops now that I have the PPONE Ice Cream Scoop.  As soon as I took it out of it’s box, I was amazed at how heavy it is.  Now I know why it has a Lifetime Warranty 

It doesn’t have the inner part that you have to push to get the ice cream out.  This is a one piece scoop, that is both a scoop, and shovel.  I love that it has the indentations that allow you to drizzle sauce down them.  It makes for pretty ice cream.

I wanted it for my portions of mashed potato too.  The gravy trickles down the grooves, and then is like a moat, around the potato.

A little from the Amazon website:

  • ‘INNOVATIVE DESIGN SAVES YOU TIME AND ENERGY – Unique shape that is the best combination of a scoop and spade to help you easily tackle rock hard frozen desserts.Curved area of scoop makes brilliant curls while the thin edges help dig out ice cream from the corners of the container so you can enjoy every last tasty bite.
  • PLOWS THROUGH ICE CREAM LIKE IT’S BUTTER – Glides smoothly and easily through hard-packed frozen sweets.It will seem like ice cream flows right into the ice cream scoops and drops into your bowl or cone with little to no effort.’

Please take a look at the photos on Amazon.  The link it below.  Buy it once, and you will never have to buy another one.  I did receive mine for free, but would happily pay $10.97 once in my lifetime.

Fivanus Pack Food Sealer Bags – 11″ x 15′ Commercial Vacuum Sealer Rolls Food Storage Saver Compatible to Foodsaver Sous Vide (total 30 feet)

I have a food sealer that came with just a few bags, so was looking to get more.  That is when I saw the Fivanus Pack Food Sealers Bags.  There are 2 rolls of commercial grade bags that are compatible with all brands of food sealers.

I have used them for my leftover turkey, and sausage meat stuffing.  Then today I used them for Christmas pudding.  I could have easily eaten it all, but wanted some for when the rest of the Christmas food has gone.

A little from the Amazon webpage:

2 packs Two layers 4 mil heavy-duty bags with embossed air-removal channel, eliminates freezer burn and dehydration, Excellent vacuum property.High-quality FDA Approved, non-toxic, BPA Free, convenient sizes.Locks in freshness, flavor, nutritional value and time, also blocks moisture and oxygen.Simmer and Microwave Safe, Great for Sous Vide Cooking.’

I did receive them at a discounted price, and am extremely happy with it.
