Holiday Giftguide+GIVEAWAY: OXO Good Grips Food Scale!

Events / Giveaways / Partnerships

Happy hump day, Noshers! I can’t believe we’re already up to Day 5 of my Holiday Gift Guide!  Today’s Gift Guide item is one of my favorite products from one of my favorite kitchen supplies brands – OXO!

I first became enamored with OXO when I purchased my first OXO product – their angled measuring cup.  The measuring cup solved the age-old problem of pouring, crouching down to see if I had measured correctly, pouring, crouching down to see I had poured too much, pouring out, crouching down…well, you get the picture.  And if you’ve ever measured liquid ingredients in a conventional measuring up, you know exactly what I’m talking about! Thanks to OXO‘s ingenious designs (seriously, their products have been featured in one of my favorite NYC museums – the Cooper-Hewitt!), a multitude of kitchen tasks have been made much easier for countless chefs and bakers!  I have since purchased waaaay too many (or some would say “just enough”) OXO products because they are simply awesome 🙂  You may recall my giveaway earlier this year for the OXO Hand-held Mandoline Slicer!  In addition to the mandoline, scale and measuring cup, I also have their ice cream scoop, cherry-pitter, can opener, and…okay this is getting a little crazy. But let’s just say that list could have gone on for a while…. Continue Reading

GIVEAWAY: OXO Hand-Held Mandoline Slicer!

Events / Giveaways / Partnerships


Oxo MandolineOk, it’s technically not summer yet, but it sure feels like it!  And you know what that means – tons and tons of summer recipes!  One of my favorites from last year’s Veggie Resolution was the Squash, Potato and Goat Cheese Gratin – chock full of hearty summer squash and potatoes, and finished with goat cheese, yum!  When I first prepared it last year, I wrote about how much easier the dish would have been to prepare if I had a mandoline, but I didn’t want to invest in another bulky piece of equipment.

Well, lucky me, OXO gave me one of their hand-held mandoline slicers to try.  This bad boy slices in three different thicknesses at lightening-fast speed, and my favorite part – it takes up almost no room! Perfect for my tiny NYC kitchen!  In the future, I’ll think I’ll use this to make my salted caramel apple pie – it will be such a time-saver!

The OXO hand-held mandoline slicer comes with a grippy tool to hold onto whatever you’re slicing, perfect for a klutz like me.  It sometimes had a little trouble gripping onto the potatoes, but in the end was quite helpful.  I sliced 5 medium potatoes and 2 squash in about 10 minutes. Super easy!

Lucky YOU – OXO has given me one more hand-held mandoline slicer to give away!  Wouldn’t you like to win one for yourself? If so, enter below!
