My kids are so much like me. They would rather watch infomercials than cartoons. And they memorize every single thing so they can repeat it to us later.
Ask my son what the vacuum food saver can do and he will tell you it can crush 24 cans, save you thousands on your grocery bill by buying in bulk and keep your meat fresh for up to a year or more.
Ask my youngest daughter about bare essentials and she will tell you that it’s makeup that doesn’t feel cakey. It is only three powder foundations that allow your natural beauty to come through, yet hide blemishes and age spots.
Ask them about the magic bullet and they will direct you to our kitchen. yep, we bought one. And it was worth it.
We are a frugal (is that the word I want) family when it comes to our kitchen wares. We have the Miracle Blade III knife set and they do everything they say they do. We are a pampered chef family and have about 80% of the catalog. And now we have the magic bullet.
For those of you who have no idea what the magic bullet is, it is basically a blender/grinder/food processor. But the unique thing is that you put everything into special cups (small, large and handle mugs) and attach the correct blade (you get two types) and put it on the bullet base (where you can lock it on or use the “pulse” technique where you tap it for quick bursts of spinning).
But what it neat is that you put everything into the cup and attach the blade cover and then turn it all upside down and place it on the base. Unlike a blender where everything is thrown in on the top. It also comes with a blender size container and juicer attachment (that works very well).
The different blades and different cups are handy. In 5 minutes everyone had their own flavored smoothie in their respective mixing mug. Do that in a blender and you have to clean it out between flavors. Amy and I had 2 different types of omelets for breakfast. I made applesauce, apple juice, and chicken salad for my work dinner all in 10 minutes.
Usually we don’t go for gimmicks on TV. Like the griddle/sandwich maker thingy or the rotisserie thing. But what we do buy, we usually are happy with.
So take a look at the magic bullet, and see that it is worth it. (it also came with a 101 recipe book that tells you how to make breads, frostings, dips, cakes, sauces, marinades…should I go on?)
