I received these products from Zulay Kitchen for review. They offer a wide variety of products, all of which would make excellent Christmas Gifts or Stocking Stuffers. Many of them will help you prepare for your Holiday entertaining much faster and easier. The two products that I received are perfect examples of this!
A Christmas party just wouldn't seem right without cookies, and I like to make several varieties of cookies in all shapes and sizes. With this Classic Cookie Press ($14.99), I can make beautiful cookies every time. What I like about using a cookie press is that it keeps your cookies uniform in size and shape. And it's so easy to use!
This cookie press has a classic stainless steel and anodized aluminum design, and is durable enough to last for years to come. It comes with 20 different decorative cookie stencils designed to press delicious and beautifully crafted cookies directly onto your baking sheet. You can easily adjust the size of the cookies with the turn of a knob.
The dough chamber is easy to fill and it has an ergonomic lever that makes it easy to dispense the cookies. The dough chamber holds enough cookie dough to make 35 - 40 small cookies or 20 - 25 large cookies in a single batch. In addition to the 20 decorative stencil discs, it also comes with 4 icing tips are easy to switch out. You'll love being able to create many different cookie variations that are perfectly sized, perfectly shaped and perfectly tailored to the occasion. You will find that you use this cookie press throughout the year, making it an excellent gift. Your friends and family will be impressed when they see your beautiful cookie platter at each get together!
Does you enjoy movie nights with your family? Nothing is better than spending quality time together as a family, and movie night is the perfect way to do it. And no movie night is complete without popcorn to munch on while watching a good movie. If you're a family of five on a budget, microwave popcorn can be a bit costly. Not to mention the fact that only half of the kernels usually pop. And popping your own on the stove is cheaper, but it can also be messy and time consuming. Wouldn't it be great if you could have the best of both worlds? Well, now you can with the Zulay Kitchen Collapsible Silicone Popcorn Maker ($13.99).
With this durable Silicone Popcorn Maker, you can buy a bag of popcorn kernels that you would normally pop on the stove and quickly pop it in your microwave! When it's done, you'll have 15 cups of delicious fully popped popcorn that's better than popcorn made in potentially harmful microwave popcorn bags. And it only takes a few minutes! The Popcorn Maker is designed with a built in heat resistant handle for easy handling without worrying about burning your hands. And best of all, the bowl is uniquely designed to spread heat evenly so not a single kernel is wasted. Every kernel will pop!
The Popcorn Maker is made from high quality Food Grade Silicone and so simple to use. Just remove the lid and stretch the bowl out, then add the kernels up to the clearly marked fill line. You can also choose to add a tiny bit of oil and seasonings, but it isn't necessary. Next, put the lid back on and place in the microwave. The bowl can withstand heat of up to 450 degrees F. Once done, you can flavor the popcorn to make it just the way you like it.
I really like that the bowl is lightweight and collapsible, making is so easy to carry and to store. It's really easy to clean as well. You can wash it by hand or pop it in the
dishwasher. It comes in five different colors (classic red, dramatic aqua, iconic blue, midnight black and white with a snowman face), so you can coordinate it with your kitchen decor, or your favorite color. And best of all, you get a bowl full of delicious popcorn, without the wasted unpopped kernels!
