Professional Knife Sharpener

Details: Priority Chef's Premium Knife Sharpener completely sharpens the dullest blades.  You will never have to buy another knife set again.  By using this 2 stage sharpening system you will save money and bring your old blunt knife set back to life.

Review:  I was very excited to get this knife sharpener.  My knifes were getting a bit dull, and I certainly didn't want to make a trip to the local butcher to have them done.  So the very day I received this, I tried it out.

The process was very quick.  There is a coarse and fine sharpening step.  I ran each knife first through the coarse step.  You place your knife in the slot, and gently pull towards you 2-4 times. Then repeat with the fine section.  WooLah!  Sharp knives.

Apparently some of my knives were very dull, and I did suspect that.  It took more like 12 times to pull it through the coarse section before fine tuning the edges on the fine section.  But hey, my knives are sharp now, and it save me not only time, but money too. This little gadget is great.

So with Christmas coming up soon, you may want to get this for those on your list, like yourself, who may have dull knives. And don't forget one for you too.

Pros:  Works quick and slick.  Knives are very sharp.  Impressed.

Cons:  None.

Perfect Portions Scale and Nutritional Calculator

Details: The Perfect Portions Scale is a digital scale and nutritional calculator all in one.  As you weigh food, one can input a food code which will then allow the scale to break down the nutritional information for the food placed on the scale.  It tracks your daily total, and lets you customize the scale by entering up to 99 of your own foods.  The scale will display weight in grams or pounds, has an auto power off, includes a tare function, and comes with a 5 year warranty. It takes 3 AAA batteries which are included.

Review:  This kitchen scale is unique in offering people an opportunity to gain more control of their weight loss program, or for helping those with medical issues.  You can easily track your calories, and see the nutritional content of each piece of food you eat.  I really like this concept.

Needless to say, my eyes were opened to how many calories I was actually taking in.  For instance, I never bothered to check how many calories a banana had, but this nifty scale was consistent at telling me each one I ate was 99 calories.  I never knew they were so high.  An eighth of a slice of watermelon was 38 calories.  My homemade whole wheat bread was 100 calories a slice.  Now I finally understand when I thought I was cutting back, and it didn't matter how many bananas I ate in a day, that it really did.  This Perfect Portions Scale is proof.

For those who need to or want to take better charge of their health this is the perfect little tool that belongs in your kitchen.  Be sure to order yours today.

Pros:  Love the idea of seeing the nutritional content of each food I eat.  I can now keep better track of my diet.

Cons:  I wish there was a back light for the display, as well as having the display larger.  The numbers are quite small, and even though I don't need glasses to read it, a magnifying glass does work better.  I also have to position the scale under light in order to read the numbers better.

The scale is placed under lighting,
and a flashlight shining on the scale.
My Rating: Thumbs Up for a great idea for this scale to calculate the nutritional value of the foods eaten.  Thumbs Down for small display of numbers and no back light.

Review:  I had the wonderful opportunity to try the dark chocolate coconut patties.  I love Mounds and Almond Joys, but Anastasia Confections' Coconut Patties surpass those by far.  They are very moist, and very fresh.  The chocolate just melts in  your mouth with a very smooth texture.  It was very hard not to eat these all at once, they were so delicious.

These would make great gifts, especially if you visit the Caribbean or Florida, and want a souvenir to give to someone.  With all the variety of flavors, there's bound to be one for everyone.

My wish is that they would offer a box that would include 1 of each flavor, and 3 of the chocolate ones to stay consistent with their 9 in a box.  Heck, why stop at 9, 12 pieces would be even better than that.

Pros:  These were excellent.  Very Delicious.

Cons: None.

Bottom, Actual Detox
However, this gave me an opportunity to see if the brown sticky goo on the pad that held was due to toxins being pulled out, or just water/sweat from my feet.  I honestly feel they worked.
