The Ranting Chef does not get paid or receive any revenue from manufactures or retailers of products reviewed. I occasionally receive products that I am asked to use and see what I think. I take a look, try them out and tell you all about them.
I must have been a good boy this year, because I came home to find this on my porch from SiliconeZone.
Inside I found two very interesting products: the Measuring Cube and the Clove Garlic Peeler.
I decided to try out the Clove Garlic Peeler first. This is a 3-4 inch piece of silicone formed in the shape of a large piece of garlic.
Break a clove from the head of garlic.
Drop it inside.
Roll the garlic around with the base of your hand.
The garlic comes out peeled and the mess stays inside. I pulled out all the skin to show you for this picture. It worked very well with all the little pieces of skin remaining in the bulb. I like it that way so I can empty it in the trash and not leave a trail of garlic skin all over the kitchen.
I next tried the measuring cube.
The cube is sturdy plastic and has four corners with different lines of measurement. One side is cups (up to 2 cups). The next is millilitres (up to 500). The third is fluid ounces (up to 16) and the last is pints (up to 1).
The corners are translucent to easily see how full the cube is which allows you to properly measure your ingredients. They also each have a spout to smoothly pour your ingredients.
What makes this product unique is what is built into the bottom of the cube: a silicone two ended measuring spoon with one end a teaspoon and the other tablespoon.
The handy spoon better allows you to keep your measuring items in one place.
A pretty cool product.
MY TAKE: I liked these products that SiliconeZone sent. The garlic peeler was easy to use and helped contain some of the mess when peeling garlic. I’m not sure I’d pull it out for a single clove but certainly would if I had a quantity (which I often do). The measuring cube is nice but what makes it a truly unique product is the measuring spoon in the bottom. This product is ideal for small kitchens. It is rare when you pull out measuring cups and don’t need measuring spoons so it is a great idea that SiliconeZone had to put them all in one place. You can purchase their products Amazon.com. Take a look at all of their great products and pick one up.
