Yumms Burger Press Makes Fixing Burgers For My Family A Breeze!!

We are a family of meat eaters! One of my guys favorite things to eat are burgers. They love burgers on the grill, in the oven, actually in any way I will make them!

Yumms has an awesome Burger Press that makes the creation of great burgers really easy! It comes with three pieces and easy to use clear instructions.

You can make burger patties quickly, easily and perfectly to your liking with the Yumms Gourmet Burger Press! The neat thing is you can make it to the thickness of your choice, anywhere from ¼" thick to ½" thick (although my guys tried to do even a little thicker, LOL).  It does not matter what kind of meat you use, as long as you use the same measurement of meat each time, the press will make consistently sized burgers with very little effort.

With the grated lifter and press I am happy to say that the burgers cook evenly all the way through. Unlike when you hand shape them, the small grate lines on the burges help spread out the heat and actually help reduce the cooking time. Less chance of scorched burgers on the outside and not quite done in the inside.

When making the burgers with the Yumms Burger Press, I was very pleased with how easy it was to get the burgers out, no poking or running a knife around the edges to loosen. The lifter pulls it out without any sticking and the burger comes off of it with one quick flip! The non-stick coating really makes a big difference. We noticed it especially with the sausage patties my husband made, no sticking at all!

Clean up is quick and easy. It is recommended to hand wash the three parts of the press, but with some good hot soapy water it comes clean easily. Since it is made of a heavy duty plastic it will hold up for a long time too, and they offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee too! I don't think you will be using it though, this is an amazing burger press!

My husband loves making burgers now. I can honestly say this is a great product!! You can purchase your own Yumms Burger Press HERE!

Have You Tried A Ceramic Knife Yet?

Anyone who cooks on a regular basis will tell you some of the most important things to have in your kitchen are good sharp knives. I grew up in an area of the country where there are multiple knife companies and have had a chance to use some really good knives, but I have found one that I absolutely love using just recently!

The NanoRazor 3" Ceramic Paring knife is an amazing and awesome knife to use. I'll be honest, I was a little skeptical about the idea of using a ceramic knife. But....I am no longer!

Here is a little about the knife ~ The NanoRazor Advantage:
Ceramic knives are sharper, more lightweight, and much easier to clean than steel ones. However, many people complain that ceramic knives are too fragile, chipping or shattering at the slightest bump. The Savvy Living NanoRazor is made using a special 4-step process which makes our blades sharper, denser, and more durable than those on regular ceramic knives.
1. The blades are molded from high-tech zirconium oxide in a 100 ton+ forging machine.
2. The blade is pressed using a special cold isostatic pressing process which makes it denser and more resistant to wear.
3. They use a high-temperature sintering process where the blade is placed in a 1500(°C) kiln for over 96 hours to make it denser and less porous (fewer pores means food and bacteria don't stick to it). 4. The blade is triple-polished with a diamond wheel for a smooth finish and razor sharp edge, and fit with an ergonomic, easy-to-grip handle for comfortable slicing, dicing, and chopping without wrist fatigue. In summary, it possesses the rare balance of sharpness and durability, which makes it great for professional chefs and home cooks alike.

I can say that the knife really is very sharp and cuts like a dream! It just glides through the food. I have tried it now on everything from meat to vegetables and it has done so well with each and every thing I have cut it with. And it can be sharpened if it goes dull (which is not supposed to happen for a long time).

One thing I appreciate is that small sheath that comes with it. I have always loved having knives that are not stored in my knife block to have a sheath to protect your fingers when you reach in the drawer for them.

The balance of the ceramic knife is wonderful. It feels comfortable in my hand and I don't tire using it for a long time. Even with some pretty good arthritis going on in my hands, I was still able to grip the knife easily without any discomfort.

I may seriously have to give ceramic knives of other sizes a chance to prove me wrong again! The NanoRazor Ceramic Knife comes in a great gift box with a FREE Ceramic Vegetable Peeler that works like a dream! It would make a great gift for anyone you know who loves to cook.

You can purchase your own NanoRazor 3" Ceramic Paring knife with a FREE Ceramic Peeler HERE!

Need To Carry A Large Lunch Along With You?

How many times have you needed a larger sized lunch bag, but not a whole cooler? Well for our family it happens a lot, in fact almost every day.

My guys work 12 hour shifts at their security jobs, which means they are gone for several meals during the day. A standard lunch bag just does not hold enough for a 12 hour shift. Since they work nights and in a semi-remote location, the option of going somewhere to pick something up just isn't there. So having a lunch bag that will hold all they need is important.

When I got the Big Easy Brands Sacko Large Insulated Lunch Bag with Adjustable Shoulder Strap  I was excited. I knew it was big enough to do the job for my guys!

The lunch bag is made from a polyester material that is easy to keep clean, so if anything spills it can be wiped up really easily. There is a large main compartment that is super deep and can hold a lot! You can put a six-pack of soda in it and still have room for several containers with food. It has multiple pockets on the outside (one zippered and the other not) for stashing things you need to take with your like silverware, a can opener, napkins, etc... 

On the outside are elastic ropes to hold a beverage bottle, even a large one. The strap locks the bottle or cups in place so you can carry it without having to worry about it falling out. it also has a great side handle to carry the bag with if you choose not to use the adjustable shoulder strap.

The bag measures 12.25"h x 10.25"w x 8.75"d, so you can see it is really good sized! Perfect for a small picnic, multiple meals for someone who has long work hours, or to take snacks along on a road trip with the family! So far, my guys really like it for going back and forth to work with. It keeps cold things cold and hot things hot!
