Because I come from quite a long food/restaurant background, I consider myself to be a self starter in the kitchen. I love to cook, grill, bake anything and especially from scratch with the freshest and healthiest ingredients I can find. I first noticed Prepara a while back when I discovered their Original Herb Savor and quickly fell in love with all the other products they have to offer.
I was recently sent a variety of prep tools for review from Prepara to use for all of my kitchen adventures. These items included the Original Herb Savor, Oil Mister, Chef's Center Cookbook Holder, Chef's Citrus Juicer, and Garlic press. Even though I was most excited about the Original Herb Savor, the first product I opened and used right away was the Garlic Press.
I know this is going to sound weird but I have always wanted a garlic press. We are very big on garlic in our family and for some reason I've never actually bought one even thought I've wanted it for a long time. This one even has a power ratchet for one handed pressing even multiple garlic pieces at one time!
The Original Herb Savor and Oil Mister will more than likely be used much more frequently in the summer once I have all my fresh herbs for salads and other meals! "The herb-savor is laboratory tested and proven to prolong the life of your fresh herbs for up to 3 weeks". I hadn't even though of it before but once I get a chance to head to the grocery store I'll be buying some asparagus as it suggests this helps keep this tasty vegetable fresher longer too!
Although I don't juice by hand a lot, I do love me some fresh lemon juice in my water because of all the health benefits. Not only is it usually a pain to juice by hand but when adding lemon to your water, you usually have half a lemon to store until you need more. Plus I hate having to toss the lemon wedge (peel and all) in my drink as well. This juicer makes it easy to juice without having to worry about pulp, seeds, or peels, and then easily stores additional juice in the fridge!
I love being able to finally position my cookbook upright so I can actually keep on the correct page AND have hands free access to the recipes without my book getting all funky and dirty! The clear splash guard helps with both of these issues. Plus this one even swivels like a lazy susan so you can turn it as you move around the kitchen!
