Introducing Stress Less Food Prep (Gadgets) by Trudeau – Review and Giveaway ($143 retail value)

by Karen on July 26, 2012

So you thought I forgot about you and wasn’t going to have those giveaways I told you about….No….just still running around with the kids taking them to play practices and activities.  You will be so glad you came back to see what was going on.  

Do I have an awesome giveaway for you???!!!

I was contacted by a marketing company representing The Trudeau Corporation asking me to try a new line of food prep “gadgets” as I call them.  Food gadgets.  You know, cheese grater, pizza cutter, garlic press, salt and pepper mills, can opener.  Those kind of gadgets.  At first I thought they had the wrong blogger.  I love cooking and my kitchen utensils and I blog about food, some times, but I am in now way just a food blogger.

Then it dawned on me.  Oh yes, stress less was the name of the line.  They saw I was all about fibro and they thought I would jump at the words stress less.    I was a little leary because of those two words… stress less…meaning easier on this ole fibro body.  Really???  How can there be such a thing?  I thought gadgets are gadgets and how can one can opener or cheese grater be any easier than another?   Is a salt and pepper mill really that hard to use?  Come on….this is just another marketing technique to get us….snare us in….capture our attention….so we would spend our money.

Boy……….Was I WRONG???!!!

This line of products is absolutely wonderful.  I love them.  I adore them.  They are my new best friends in the kitchen.  I was privileged to try a six piece set of kitchen gadgets including a can opener, cheese grater, garlic press, pizza cutter, salt grinder and pepper grinder.  Six items that would normally cost $143 retail were sent to little ole fibro me to try.

My very favorite or two favorites are the salt and pepper mills.  Who knew that grinding salt and pepper could be stressful?   Hah…….now I understand.  These grinders can be set for find grind up to coarse grind and no matter what setting you put it to the turning of the handle is the easiest thing I have done in my daily cooking ever.

AndI can’t live without my new can opener.  So darn easy to turn the handle to cut the lid of the can but the trick is the little attachmet on the side which just flips the can lid off the can.

Then we have I pizza cutter which is a breeze to clean.  The blade pops off so easily so you can clean that thouroghly.   The cheese grater and the garlic press are just as easy as the others to use.  Turning the handle is so easy and yes, so stress less.  I was amazed that a line could be so easy to turn and this line does it.

Let me explain something for those of you without fibro or a chronic condition!

Our arms and hands get really weak at times.

I mean the kind of weak that won’t let you take a comb or brush to your hair in the morning.

The kind of weak that won’t let you raise your arm to praise God with Holy hands.

The kind of weak that won’t let you wash your face or shampoo your hair.

The kind of weak that doesn’t let you life a can of anything and turning lids………..this can be really hard.

So when I say that these are stress less…I absolutely mean they can help you in the kitchen.

And yes there is more great news...they all have a lifetime warranty!

If I wouldn’t have tried them I may question how it is possible but I am convinced.  I am a huge fan and I recommend all of you go purchase these right now….that is, if you don’t win my giveaway!  

I get to give away two complete sets.  Yes, two complete sets of six stress less kitchen gadgets.
