When Izebella was younger, I had the pleasure of working with Oxo UK on their baby and toddler products. They have a lot of colourful products for babies and toddlers. Izebella is now a little old for the Oxo tot range but Oxo UK also have a good selection of items and gadgets for the kitchen and bathroom.
“And here are just 3 of those products”
Starting with the Trigger ice cream scoop. I have many kitchen accessories and utensils but up until now, I have never owned a real ice cream scoop and usually resort to using a spoon; which always ends up bent!
It is a slightly strange looking gadget, with the peculiar looking lever but it certainly saves a few bent spoons (well unless you are practicing to be the next Uri Geller that is?).
Ryan was very keen to give this a go for me and demonstrate how it works. There is a tab on the scoop to save sliding hands and a press of the lever gives nice round scoops of ice cream, perfect for a cone.
Unfortunately Ryan did not get to have the first scoops, Jordanna did instead.
It’s a nice fancy gadget to own, not exactly a necessity unless you eat ice cream on a daily basis but always good to have one. It’s much easier than bending the spoon! These cost £10.00 each.
Next up is a box grater. A grater is another thing I did not previously own and I am very happy to now have one.
This grater has 4 useable sides, all of which give a different slice to the used foods. You can pretty much slice any food on a grater and it saves the need for using a knife. However the sides are all sharp so care needs to be taken and especially so for very small or pieces of food as it will also grate skin if not careful.
Unlike the regular stand alone grater, this one comes with a handy plastic tub which fits and attaches under the grater. The tub catches the grated foods meaning slightly less mess.
I have so far grated onions, cheese and a few other salad items using this. I love the little tub attachment as it makes things much easier than using a plate or chopping board underneath it. The tub even has a lid for storing and measurement markings. This costs £16.00
Finally and one just for Izebella to use is a Good grips twist top water bottle.
This is a really big water bottle and holds a lot of water or juice. Unlike other water bottles that we have used, this one opens and closes by twisting the top lid around, thus hiding the straw and protecting it. When the straw is hidden it becomes a leak proof bottle that can be taken on journeys. When the straw is up, the leakage is still minimal when tipped, tho some does come out at first.
It’s a tough a study bottle which seems to beable to withstand many drops so far. The plastic handle at the top makes it easy and conveinient to carry around.
Measurements in both mls and ounces appear on each side of the cup making it perfect for adults to make gym shakes inside it too.
This water bottle costs £10.00.
