The most fantabuluos Lisa from Pass The Prosecco Please tested out some kitcheny bits (the Vremi apple slicer and Vremi silicone cupcake cases) for us, and here is what she thought!
When I was offered a chopper for a review I jumped at the chance – I was expecting a helicopter or a marital aid; especially the latter when the description promised ‘a multi-function chopper with easy grip’.
Jokes aside I’m a keen cook and I loved the look of the range of products Vremi had to offer; they truly are little boxes of kitchen awesomeness.
When I received the items – a [amazon_textlink asin=’B01N0EK7IM’ text=’3 in 1 slicer-dicer ‘ template=’ProductLink’ store=’yhtl-21′ marketplace=’UK’ link_id=’eb9bd47a-d101-11e7-b8dd-2b9c3c69c4d9′]and Silicone Baking Cups the first thing that caught my eye was the packaging.
They look cool, well made and functional – and they made me laugh. There are cheeky little one liners hidden on the packaging; and the branding is simple and fun.
I’ll start with the chopper – it’s a tough bit of kit this and you can interchange the blades cleanly and easily. You can core and slice apples, potatoes and mangoes with this and probably more – as a Slimming Worlder its handy for me for the potato-wedge aspect.
It’s easy to grip and is child friendly; however I would be careful as the blades are super sharp. No one wants chopped fingers with their mango.
The stainless steel blades cut beautifully – it’s built to last and once you’ve chopped and sliced to your hearts content, it’s really easy to take apart and clean. I would say it’s for small to medium size fruit and vegetables and nothing rock hard.
And whoever had the idea for and wrote the Vanilla Ice parody that appears on the box – you, my friend, are a genius.
Winner winner, (sliced) chicken dinner.
The silicone cupcake cases I was apprehensive to try as the last time I baked in silicone it ended badly. I love to cook but baking is not in my blood; I watch Mary Berry on TV with all the hope and promise, I plan and lovingly craft cakes that look like giant turds once baked. Pfffft.
Like the chopper the packaging is super cool; simple and fresh with a few cheeky one liners. Once inside there are 24 multicolour silicone cases which are oven and freezer friendly as well as non stick and BPA free.
I whipped up some cupcakes expecting them to be as horrific as per every single one of my previous bakes – and they actually turned out really well. The cakes did not stick at all. AT ALL. I don’t think I’ve ever witnessed a cake coming out of a case or mould cleanly in my life. Top marks from me – and I’m converted to silicone.
I would totally recommend both of these items as a gift for someone else or yourself – the mix of fun packaging and awesome product quality made me a very happy chopper and baker. I can’t wait to check out the rest of the range.
Overall I found no negatives, I love these products.
