…I really enjoy using it. So far I have used it for salads, stir-fries and stews. It saves a lot of time in the kitchen in food prep and clean up. Best of all, it saves on cooking time because all the slices are thin and of even size so you save energy, money and nutrients.  Of the 3 the blades I’ve tried so far they’ve performed, and cleaned, really well. I’ve not had any concern with the safety of these blades...

…The gloves feel light on the skin, and were thin enough that we could really feel what we were doing in the kitchen. I think these gloves would be fantastic for people who work with box-cutters on a regular basis, or for anyone who works with sharpening tools, garden tools, etc. Save time, reduce cuts, scrapes and bruises from clumsy handling of virtually any kind of non-powered tool commonly found around the home or garage…

It never fails. There you are on the road, traveling hours away from your home – likely going to an important event – and… you realize your button is falling off your jacket, or you have a small tear in the cuff of your pants, or worse.  Or you are out camping and you realize that your padded jacket or sleeping bag has a rip in it and that rip will only get worse if you don’t do something to stop it from tearing…

...The first thing my husband and I noticed was that the bags felt thin and very flat, but they do expand and can be filled right to the top. My husband uttered, “Neat idea – you can just clip it on a belt or backpack; could use it for water… or rye and 7-up (ha ha)”. Humor aside...

Drinking anything outdoors can be a messy problem; glasses tipping over and their expensive contents oozing into the ground attracting wasps and ants and all kinds of unwanted visitors to your outdoor adventure.
