OXO Good Grips Review and Competition

I was very pleased to be sent two rather fabulous items from the OXO Good Grips range to review.  I went for two very practical items as I am not overly excited about being in the kitchen as a rule so I wanted items that make my time in there easier and generally more appealing!

Now I can approach cheese grating with enthusiasm!  I am even willing to give hubbie a helping hand as the OXO products are designed to be comfortable to use with the non-slip grip handles making it all less of a chore.

The Box Grater is a very useful purchase for £15.50 as the attachable container makes grating a breeze.  You can then store anything left over (when it comes to cheese though I eat it ALL!) in the box where it will be kept nice and fresh.



The box conveniently has measurements on it so you know how much you are using for any particular recipe (although for cheese there is no sensible guidelines the MORE the merrier!) but this might be useful when adding vegetables or roots.

The Apple Divider (£7.00) was an instant hit here, my eldest bless him has no front teeth at the moment and has been waiting a long time for the next set to appear.  Until then eating a whole apple is quite troublesome for him, with this handy gadget though making sure he still gets a regular manageable apple fix has been much simpler.  



It is surprisingly undemanding on the hands to use, as the pressure is absorbed into the handles.  Thankfully you do not have to be muscled up to use it, as I am more like Olive Oyl than Popeye…



Fortunately both items are dishwasher safe which is another bonus!  The clean up after food preparation is quicker as you can just add them into the dishwasher.

I have kindly been offered both of these items to giveaway to one lucky winner; so if you fancy entering simply complete the rafflecopter below by the 10th of February.

  107. I was looking at something similar to the box grater in the supermarket at the weekend. I didn't buy it because it was more like a mandolin. This is more like what I was looking for, a regular grater with a container attachment. By the time you've usually grated the cheese, put it in a bowl and transferred it to a tub, the dishwasher is full just for a bit of cheese.
