Prepara Kitchen Gadgets Review and #Giveaway

Logo - Kitchen Tools by Prepara
     I love me some kitchen tools! If its available you know I want it. I love to have every and any available option when preparing my family meals. Being that I cook five plus days a week AND I use mostly fresh ingredients (from my garden if possible), I personally require different utensils to bring out those specific flavors.


        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!

        The oil mister is so much more than my original thoughts of being able to use this for my fresh salads.  You can even buy your oil in bulk and use this just like you would a PAM can of oil!  This is great and can save a ton of money in the long run!  You can even customize the oil and its flavor by adding your favorite herbs without clogging the sprayer.

        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!

Available to purchase.Cost:  Vary between $14.99 - $19.99 Original Herb Savor, Oil Mister, Chef's Center Cookbook Holder, Chef's Citrus Juicer, and Garlic Press 
Recommendation:  I love all these tools and in discovering this set of them I know my next purchase from them is going to have to be the herb shears, topper chopper, or even an additional herb-savor!  Definitely head over to Prepara's website to check out more really awesome tools.

  1. I love to prepare vegetarian chili in my crock pot. I put all types of beans and different vegetables and serve over brown rice.

  2. Carolina pulled chicken is my favorite. It is so easy to just toss in the slow cooker with vinegar and spices. Shred the chicken then serve on a bun with cole slaw. I always have to make a triple batch because we always want it the next day also.

  3. My favorite recipe is Sweet and Sour Chicken

  4. My favorite meal to prepare is my yummy fried chicken! We love boneless, skinless thighs and only use lard to fry it is-I know it is not good for us, but once a month, it is A-OK! Thanks for the very useful giveaway :)

  5. I just recently came across a black bean, mexican lasagna recipe. I have made it at least once a week. It's my favorite recipe so far.

  6. I too am excited about the garlic press, we use a lot of garlic, especially when making the gravy for our pasta. That's the first thing I'd use it for.

  7. I have an oil mister that no longer mists (it just spits a stream). Do you know how I could turn it back into misting? I have cleaned it several times. Is there a cleaning secret?

    ReplyDelete
  8. That oil mister would be so handy, it would help cut down on fats and aerosols. I could coat a cake pan, lasagna pan, spray a roast before browning, etc.

  9. I like to pick broccoli greens from my garden and cook them up with pork belly and yellow rice. Yummo!

  10. I would love to win this! It will be nice to have fresh herbs more often. I also want the oil mister for oiling pans or adding to salads.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Two utensils I've never purchased but always wanted were the mister so I could use more olive oil in my diet and the juicer. I bought a cheat juicer but it was hard to use so very excited to try for these.

    ReplyDelete
  12. I have never used a juicer to juice my lemons and I appreciate your review about Prepara's juicer. I would love to use one of their juicers as well as their cookbook protector. You are right. When your cookbook is lying on the countertop, the pages get splashed on and it definitely is a bother.

  13. I would love to win some prep tool, especially the garlic press since I don't have one. Garlic is so good for you and I'd prep a ton to eat if I had one of these babies.

  14. The Chef's Center Cookbook holder would be perfect to hold up my hardback cookbooks I still use. I don't have an iPad and have actually won some really great vegan cookbooks to use with this tool.

    ReplyDelete
  15. My favorite recipe is for chicken tacos, seasoned with salsa verde and made with fried corn tortillas.Yum! I serve them with refried beans.

    ReplyDelete
  16. I have a lemon, lime juice press and garlic press, I really would be luck if I won all the prize gadgets. Really could be handy in the kitchen!

    ReplyDelete
  17. I could really use these prize gadgets in my kitchen. I really would use the herb saver, garlic press and mister!

    ReplyDelete
  18. I would love to gift the mister to my husband. He cooks at our house and I know this would come in handy as you say not only for salads, but also for misting you pans.

    ReplyDelete
  19. As I was reading your review, I thought to myself, gee, I have always wanted a garlic press, too. We eat a lot of garlic and I usually buy it in jars but my daughter lives with me again and she always wants fresh garlic. Now I suppose would be the time to buy one or hopefully win one. I really would like to have that cookbook holder also.

  20. My fave meal to prepare is chicken and dumplings yes it is a little time consuming but I love to roll out the dough its relaxing after a hard day on the P.E. field at school..
    I sometimes cheat and get a baked chicken from the deli.. They are so good.

    ReplyDelete
  21. I would use the Prepara oil mister with all my new oils I purchased: grapeseed, olive, and pistachio oil. I've never had one before so it would be a treat to use it with food prep.

    ReplyDelete
  22. A garlic press? Every kitchen needs one! The oil mister? Pays for itself in the money you save not buying no-stick spray! The Cookbook holder would be the extra set of hands I always seem to need. The juice press, for all of the fresh lemons of the tree!! Lemon chicken, lemon for fish...Lemonade!! The Herb Saver would pay for itself with first couple batches of chives I'd have to throw out!!

    ReplyDelete
  23. That Herb Savor is something I have always wanted but never saw in a store. I garden but live alone and at times I don't eat my produce as soon as I should. This gadget would keep a lot of stuff out of the compost pile.

    ReplyDelete
  24. My "signature" dish is roast chicken with potatoes, carrots, lots of garlic & onion, stuffing and gravy.

    ReplyDelete
  25. as a gardener and a single person sometimes things ripen that I'm not ready to eat. something that would keep fresh would be so helpful.

    ReplyDelete
  26. My favorite dish to make is chicken and dumplings I love all southern style cooking its very YUMMY!

    ReplyDelete
  27. I really have been wanting to get an oil mister for some time now. I love the gagets too. I'm a big fan of items like these.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Now I must have ALL of these! I really do need a citrus juicer. Mine is crappy and I hate it.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Love gagets like this. I so need a garlic press.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Gagets. If I won these I would give a couple away and keep the ones I reallhy like, thought i think they are all rety cool.

    ReplyDelete
  31. I am excited to win because these gadgets look very helpful with food preparation! I would use them to make sauces and marinades.
