Mini Stainless Steel Tongs Set Multipurpose 5 Piece

When I cook, I always run out of kitchen tongs.  Always.  I’m constantly using them to turn, toss, flip, etc. and I won’t use them again until they’re washed if they have raw meat on them.  I’m constantly using forks or other utensils to substitute for tongs because there’s never enough of them in my kitchen.  I was able to purchase this set (in red) for a substantial discount in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.  I have no affiliation whatsoever with this company.  I’m just a guy who likes to cook!

The red set is cute – are they big and sturdy?  No.  But they’re 5 for $10!  I didn’t expect them to be.  But they will probably hold up decently for what they are.  What I love about them is the fact that I can use these initially to turn over raw chicken, pork, beef, and not worry about the larger tongs getting dirty.  The smaller size is perfect for dishing out perfect portions of pasta, tossing salad, tons of uses.  It comes with a tong for just about every cooking action – so you won’t run out again!  Even though they aren’t the most sturdy – I still think they’re a good addition to any kitchen drawer!

REVIEW: Grill up veggies on your GearUltimate BBQ Grill Mat!!

I love doing Shish-Kabobs on the grill but I hate the time it takes to skewer all the veggies and meats and then invariably, the veggies come off the skewer and I end up dropping a bunch of them down the BBQ grates. Forget about steak or sausage sandwiches with peppers and onions – i don’t even try and grill the veggies part. I end up doing them in a pan inside on the stove and it’s a pain.
That’s where the Grill Mat from Gear Ultimate comes in! I cut up the veggies and put them on the mat – and placed them on the BBQ grill. I put some olive oil on the mat with the veggies and put them right on the grill. Not sure if you have to but that’s how I did it. Some seasoning, too. And in 10 minutes or less, great cooked veggies! Next time I will turn down the heat but they cooked well and fast! Clean-up was a breeze as I just wiped them down and put them on the top rack of the dishwasher. It was perfect!! Not a single veggie slipped down!!!

I’m sure there’s tons of more uses for this BBQ mat, but I just received this recently for free or heavily discounted in exchange for my honest and unbiased review. I haven’t had much time with it but in the short time I have – I’m THOROUGHLY impressed. Does a great job and I’d absolutely recommend to anyone who BBQ’s and wants to cook up anything small that might fall through the grill grates. This is a great invention — i don’t know why nobody has thought of this sooner!!!

You can pick one up for yourself at: – last I checked it was under $15 with free PRIME SHIPPING!   With the amount of vegetables drop down between the grill grates, I bet this mat pays for itself in no time!!!!
