I know our family is trying to live more an eco-friendly life, so we have been looking around at different companies and see what they have to offer. We recently came across a company called The Ultimate Green Store and the provide a variety of environmentally friendly products. The Ultimate Green Store carry products from many of the world's leading manufacturers and designers of sustainable, natural, organic, recycled, and eco friendly goods.
I received Bamboo Kitchen Starter Set for review. When I first saw pictures of the Bamboo Kitchen Starter Set I was very excited. Since my divorce a few years back I did not have any nice kitchen items left or cutting board. When I saw that there was a cutting board included I was super excited. The set comes with one large artisan cutting and serving board, two different mixing spoons, two different spatulas, one slotted spoon and one set tongs. The kitchen starter set items are 100% Organic Bamboo certified. When I took each utensil and cutting board out the first thing I noticed that they were very detailed in their shape. They each were finished then burnished and were polished to a satiny feel. The one thing that I was worried about is when cooking with the utensils or using the cutting board is that flavors would soak into them. I know that may sound crazy but I have that happened before and it can be awful. It happened with onions, so you can just imagine. Another concern I had with this set is would it scratch my pans or my electric skillet? When I tried using them while cooking they where amazing they did not scratch the surface at all.
My favorite product out of the set was the cutting board. I was looking for a good cutting board that was a decent size. When I am cooking that is important to me because I hate having a tiny one when I am cutting up onions or what ever I am cooking. I can cut and slide over. This cutting board give me space that I need. I also love the tongs they work great. I actually tossed my other tongs out because these work better and they do not get as hot. There is one thing that I would recommend is not put these items in the microwave or dishwasher. They will ruin them.
Overall I was quite impressed with the quality of the items that we received. They are very durable and work great while cooking. I would definitely come back and pick up more items at The Ultimate Green Store.
I am excited that they have agreed to give one of our lucky readers a gift certificate of 20 dollars to one lucky reader. Enter Below.
