Those who know me well know I’m no good in the kitchen. I love to eat, but not to cook, which is really weird because my father was an ace in the kitchen, but sadly, I didn’t inherit any of his culinary talents. Even so, I have to cook for my kids and husband regardless of my cooking abilities. So, anything that will make this busy mom’s life easier in this arena is always welcomed!
That’s why when Walmart gave me the opportunity to review two very cool kitchen gadgets that promised to make cooking simpler, I jumped on it.
The first product is called the Fusion Juicer ($119 at Walmart) and it’s the first juicer I’ve ever owned. I’m really excited about it because ever since I turned 40 earlier this year, I promised myself I’d start having breakfast every morning — problem is, I’m usually not very hungry when I wake up. I made myself a tropical fruit juice recently using a nice mix of fruits, and I was impressed by the power of this gadget, despite it being so quiet. The juice tasted pretty good, but I still need to figure out which fruits go together best.
The second product is called Health Master Elite Blender ($149 at Walmart) and it’s pretty much that, except that it’s super powerful and versatile because you can use for pretty much anything from making quiche to making margaritas.
We’re coffee lovers in this house — especially my husband — and since it’s been unseasonably hot these past few days, we decided to try out the blender to make frozen cappuccinos.
We used the simple recipe that comes with the blender’s booklet and we were blown away by how quickly we were drinking some delicious coffee drinks. I think it took longer to make the espresso than for the blender to mix everything up. My favorite part was the froth! Next up we’re making chocolate chip muffins.
