10" Green Earth Frying Pan by Ozeri

Ozeri has a bunch of great wonderful products but one of my favorite products are their pans.  This time I got a 10" Green Earth Frying Pan that has a textured bottom.  I was a bit worried that the textured bottom would be hard to clean but as with all of their pans I have used, it was a snap.  Just wash gently with a soft sponge and mild soap no need to scrub.  The pan is heavy duty but not a super heavy weight.

The nonstick surface is a special ceramic from Germany that is 100% PTFE and PFOA free.  The coating is scratch resistant but I still wouldn't recommend using metal on the pan.  I personally do not use metal utensils on any of my nonstick cookware, wood or plastic both work well.  It truly is nonstick too, even with the textured bottom. 

I think the textured bottom helps in frying and sauteing because my food always comes out better in this pan than it does in my other pans.  But that also could be due to the even heat distribution of the pan.  It doesn't get hot spots on one side or the middle of the pan.  The pan will also work on an induction stove if you have one. 

Ozeri pans are made to last!  I have a few other pans by them that I have had for years and they don't have a single scratch on them.  If you are looking to add some truly wonderful pans to your kitchen then Ozeri pans are the way to go.  In fact, Ozeri product in general are all very well made, from their kitchen items to their bathroom items.

Color Changing Sunglasses Are Awesome

You might remember my post about the color changing shirts a while back and how cool they were.  Well now I have color changing sunglasses and they are just as cool.  The sunglasses have flowers on the side and they change from white to blue when in the sun.  They are so much fun.   They are comfortable and look good on me too.  The lenses are dark and work well to protect my eyes from the harsh Arizona sun. 

Sunglasses aren’t all Del Sol has though.  They carry all kinds of awesome color changing products.  They have something for everyone, male, female, young and old.  Some items are perfect stocking stuffers like the nail polish, hair clips, keychains or other small accessories.  Other items make great gift such as the jewelry, shirts, and backpacks.  But these items aren’t all they carry; check out their site to find something unique for yourself or someone you love.

Be A Keyboard Master On This Giant Keyboard Mat

This Giant Keyboard play mat is a lot of fun but you need to have patience with it.  If you stand on too many keys at once it sounds like the speaker might blow.  I think the speaker is just not a good quality.  Using the mat is super easy though, toss in some batteries, turn it on and you are ready to play.  All the buttons are easy to press and it has a volume control but again, if you turn it up too loud then the speaker sounds terrible.  You just kind of have to find the “sweet spot”.    The mat is very large and is best played on a hard surface.

Sweet, Spicy and Simply Delicious...Jenkins Jellies

My family loves jellies and jams and to be perfectly honest, I am a bit of a snob when it comes to jellies, jams and preserves.  I am particular and ask anyone in my family and they will tell you the same. 

Jenkins Jellies are NOT your typical jelly.  They are in a league of their own.  There are 4 different varieties and we got the chance to try the Hell Fire and Fiery Fig.  The other two flavors are, Passion Fire and Guava Brava.   I was blown away, not from the spice but from the depth of flavors and the complexity of the jellies.
The Fiery Fig Jelly was sweet and a bit spicy but more sweet than spicy.  The fig flavor was at the forefront of the flavors and the spicy kind of was the shy kid in the classroom who you knew was there but was always quite.  It was the more mild of the two jellies. When we went to try the Hell Fire Jelly I wasn’t sure what to expect because the Fiery Fig was more sweet than spicy but the name was a bit scary.  I have to say, I was impressed.  The sweetness was still there but the spice was too.  It was spicier than sweet, opposite of the Fiery Fig and my favorite of the two.  The spice was not overpowering though and my kids even enjoyed it.

Both jellies were easy to spread on the crackers and the crackers were a great pairing for the jellies so if you are having guest a plate of crackers and this jelly would make an amazing munchie plate.  The jelly set even came with an adorable little spoon to serve the jelly with.  Jenkins Jellies can also be used in recipes to add that certain “something” that a dish may be missing or just to highlight the flavors already there.

Jenkins Jellies would be great at any party or a wonderful gift for a friend, family member, or coworker.   They are very delicious and actually highly addictive.

3D Pens Are A Lot Of FUN
 This is the first 3D pen I have ever used and it is very neat.  I got it for my son for Christmas but wanted to make sure it worked before I put it away until then so if there was an issue I could exchange it.  It is very easy to operate but it will take practice to do anything cool I think. 
 To get started all you need to do is plug it in and press the feed button so the red light comes on.  When the light turns green then you are ready to move to the next step.  I was surprised how quickly it heated up, within seconds. You feed the filament into the hole in the back of the pen. There is a slide on the side of the pen that adjusts the feed speed.  I cut the filament into small sections so it is more manageable when using the pen.  There is a bit of a plastic smell when using the pen and even a little smoke but not a lot and nothing to worry about.
After done “drawing” you press the backwards feed button to remove the filament until next time.  The pen didn’t come with a ton of filament but it is enough to play around with, get familiar with the pen and practice with. 

My son is going to be so excited about this Samto 3d pen when he opens it on Christmas.

Best Wok I Have Ever Had

 I have a few Ozeri pans and they are some of my favorite pans out of all the pans I have. This wok is no different. I love the depth and how wide it is. While I do use woks for cooking oriental food, we often use them for browning meat since we do bulk cooking often so we have left overs. This pan is the perfect size for cooking 5 pounds of meat at a time.
Since the instructions say to season the pan with an oil before cooking I figured that cooking a big batch of hamburger in the pan before anything else would help season the pan well since we use 73/27 beef. It seemed to work well and my meat came out perfect. It is oven safe too which is awesome because you never know when you will want to finish a dish in the oven.

I love the pans weight; it is heavy without being so heavy you think you are handling cast iron. The handle is very comfortable in my hand, the under curve of the handle is just right.

Cleaning the pan is easy; I just wipe it out with a soft sponge and mild dish soap. I never put my non-stick pans in the dishwasher although it is dishwasher safe. The pan came with a pad for storage to help prevent damage when not in use. I thought that was awesome.

Ozeri has proved once again that it truly has superior products to other products I have tried. This is my new go-to brand when I need a new fabulous pan for my kitchen.
