The Perils of Blogging From The Kitchen

Food bloggers are intimately aware of the challenges that arise when baking flour and other powdery cooking substances come in close proximity of cameras and laptops. Once flour settles into all of those nooks, crannies and crevices it seems like you’ll never be able to get it out. Never say never. Introducing the OXO Electronics Cleaning Brush! It has a slim silicone wiper that removes dust from small, hard-to-reach places including between keyboard keys and around the edges of a monitor screen, while soft bristles are gentle enough to clean cell phone camera lenses and more. Find out more here. My Sweet Creations can’t wait to try it! How about you?

Healthy Eating with OXO

While February is coming to an end and New Year’s has become a distant memory, it doesn’t mean that our Resolutions need to be forgotten as well! At OXO, we’ve decided to make eating healthy as easy as possible with an assortment of vegetable tools that not only simplify the process, they also make it pretty fun as well (ahem, yes we still get a kick out of pumping the Salad Spinner!). We’d love to share some new and a couple of classic tools with you and your readers. For instance, the white 5 lb Food Scale helps manage portions as well as measure out all of your ingredients accurately. Shake it up with our new Salad Dressing Shaker – ideal for quickly making a homemade dressing without any spills and with easy cleanup. Of course, a salad’s not a salad without the greens! For that we have our classic Salad Spinner in green – perfect for rinsing, drying and serving. What about the toppings? The Hand-Held Mandoline Slicer helps you make even slices at three different thicknesses. The 3 Piece Peeler Set helps prep all of your veggies. The Set includes a Swivel Peeler that glides through the toughest [...]
