Oxo : Salad and cocktails in one. A giveaway

Oxo Good Grips Salad Prep Kit


#1Nana and I have long running debates over.....kitchen utensils.

True story.

Not content with debating life's hard hitting issues and eternal questions, we choose to argue over - 

Can openers
Manual or automatic?
Removal of the entire rim or no?

Lettuce keepers
Fact or retail fiction?

Various fruit/veg specific slicers
Food art useful or kitchen clutterers?

Kitchen scissors
Necessary or not?


Believe me when I tell you this this is just the tip of the iceberg.


There has been but one single kitchen utensil that we both agree on (besides a bottle opener)

Oxo makes the best potato peeler


Check that bad boy out - chunky handle that's easy to grasp, even for old lady hands, and a non-slip, rubberised surface so your hand isn't constantly slipping, risking involuntary DIY skin grafting.

It's a thing of beauty - says the mother of three who is endlessly peeling carrots and potatoes.  And apples when Mstr5 randomly decides that he is, once again, deathly allergic to the skins, once a month on average.

While I was sent one of these as part of Oxo's Salad Prep Kit  - I've owned one for years, and this is my genuine opinion - hand on vodka heart.

I was interested to try the Avocado Slicer.  It's one of those things I've long coveted (largely because it would add to my matching collection of Oxo utensils), but never really 'needed'.

That said, I am just a little bit in love with it.

The past week's meals have been accompanied by food art - fanned, perfectly equal slices of avocado.  Thankfully, impressive to my easily amused lot.  Because it's pretty much all I've got by way of food art skills.  I did attempt to make a face out of salad items and it was a massive failure.

So fanned avocado slices are going to be my thing from now on.

With zero accompaniments.  Because, in addition to my new status as someone who does food art, I'm also lazy now a minimalist.

Another new favourite from the collection is the Salad Dressing Shaker.  I am all smug domestic goddess when I can whip up my own salad dressing without muttering shed words about the plate that ends up with the oily salad, and the one with the tart vinegar/lemon that has split away from the oil.

Just don't forget to ensure you have sealed the top before showing off in front of your family and pretending you're tossing cocktails in a bar and not a DIY salad dressing in your kitchen.....

That lesson was followed by actually using the same shaker to mix a cocktail, just to be a smart arse and improve my mood, having spent 15 minutes cleaning oily salad dressing from the entire kitchen surface.

Salad Dressing Shaker slash Mojito Maker!

Mostly Mojito Maker, to be honest.
