Product Review: Talisman Designs Products

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.

Recently a big box came from Talisman Designs.

First out of the box was The Mighty Yolk Hero!

The Yolk Hero is an egg separator. Take this dish of three raw eggs.

Squeeze the Yolk Hero then place it on top of a yolk.

Unsqueeze and the yolk is sucked up inside. Go ahead and lift the Hero up.

Photo Oct 24, 8 21 01 AM

The yolk stays in the Hero and the white stays in the dish.

It is very easy to use and makes quick work of separating eggs.

The next item was the One Piece Adjustable Pie Shield.

Photo Oct 24, 8 28 55 AM

This device fits around the crust of your pie in place of crumpled up aluminum foil that is a pain to put on. I decided to use it here for a caramel pecan pie. Look at the top of the picture above. You can see how there are two sections that overlap. If my pie plate was bigger this could cover it.

This is post baking. Other than filling my pie too much, everything worked great.

Photo Oct 24, 9 08 53 AM

Look at that beautiful crust. The shield peeled off easily and cleaned up in the dishwasher.

The third item was the Butter Bot.

Slide a stick of butter in the bottom.

Photo Oct 12, 5 21 09 PM

When you use it, take off the Butter Bot’s head and glide the butter along your ear of corn. There is a “pusher” in the bottom to keep the butter against the corn.

Photo Oct 12, 6 02 01 PM

The curved shape of the Bot fits an ear of corn perfectly. The head goes back on to keep the butter fresh for storage in the refrigerator.

The last item was the Angry Animals Salad Set.

Photo Oct 17, 3 38 13 PM

Seared into the beechwood are both words,

Photo Oct 17, 3 38 18 PM

and images. I think this bunny is angry that I’ll be eating his rabbit food.

Photo Oct 17, 4 45 24 PM

I put the set to use as intended, serving salad.

My Take: Talisman Designs makes and eclectic and interesting set of kitchen items. The Yolk Hero and Pie Shield were very effective in their use. The Butter Bot added a fun character to a useful tool and the seared images on the salad set shows quite a bit of creativity. They have quite a few different lines that you should check out here. Talisman Designs products are sold at a number of places including Amazon and Bed, Bath and Beyond. Find out where you can purchase these and other great products here.

    Hm yolk hero, what is wrong with the oldfashioned way of cracking open the egg and using the eggshell to separate the egg yolk from the egg white? The thought of having to try to get egg protein off a silicon yolk hero makes me shudder…………But I guess the marketing guys need to come up with new gadgets eh?

  1. Eating Corn the Right Way | Rantings of an Amateur Chef - November 8, 2013

    […] What I learned is insert the holders (or grab the corn “handle” if you had one), and properly butter and pepper the corn. I have to admit that our buttering process was significantly lacking. First off, we only had stick butter or margarine. Spreadable butter? That was for the Country Crock commercials. I don’t think I ever saw butter in a tub in my house until I bought one. We would slice a pat of butter off and hold it against the hot corn with the flat edge of the butter knife, sliding it back and forth across the top as we slowly rotated the ear beneath it. Most times the butter would slip and you’d have to try to get the now melty pat back onto the knife. I remember eating with another family one time and they just took the ear of corn and placed it on the stick, moving and rotating it. The stick got lower and had a nice concave shape, but it didn’t go anywhere. I was amazed! What a cultural advancement! Alert the papers! Who else knew about this? We have to tall everybody! Now there are inventions such as the Butter Bot! […]
