Salter Megastone review

We love arranging for our MumsClub members to get some wonderful products to review for us, but when those products can help a make a mum’s life easier we’re particularly happy! Salter have a best selling product line and we managed to get hold of a Megastone Wok and a Griddle pan. Here’s how our reviewers got on. Salter Megastone 28cm Wok It’s funny how you don’t realise how much you need something in your life until you try it. Until very recently we had a type of wok and it’s fair to say it’s been used a great deal...

Takeaway Style Sweet & Sour Chicken

Easy Chinese Takeaway at Home   This is a firm favourite in our house, and it’s become my own personal signature dish. Thanks to Salter for the wonderful Megastone Wok which has made my Sweet & Sour Chicken a dream to make. Go ahead and try my super delicious and easy takeaway style Chinese Chicken – just know that the home made version won’t be red as it is from the takeaway, because I haven’t added any colouring but the taste is the same, if not hugely better! Try it and let me know how you get on!   Ingredients...

Beldray cleaning hacks for Mums

Cleaning hacks for Mums   Beldray have launched what appears to be a useful range of cleaning products and when we heard about it, we were intrigued as to how good they actually are, so set to work to get our review panel on the case. We sent MumsClub Member Marili her choice of products from the range, here’s what she chose.     Beldray Turquoise Double Sided Spray Mop £24.99 The Beldray double sided spray mop has proven itself useful in my kitchen particularly because of its ease of use and its efficiency. Out of the box, putting it...

Ocushield Review

Research into the effects of blue screens is astounding, in this modern, technological world we live in experts have said that we are absorbing more than 10 times too much blue light from our digital screens, far more than previous generations. and really, it’s only going to get worse. At both work and play, we spend an average of 9 hours a day looking at a screen of some sort. You may initially think no, not me and truly believe you spend far less time looking at a screen but in reality you could well be spending far more time than you...

Beldray Soup Maker Review

Beldray Soup Maker You know those delicious home made soups you get in a restaurant? The ones that are perfect with crusty bread making you wish you could make them too…this how you make your own! I’ve often tried making soup at home, but I’ve never really got it right and end up buying it in. So over the last few days the kids and I have been experimenting and have made some really delicious soups, we’ve tried all sorts from adding rice, pasta, spices, curry… Adding too much curry powder could make you wince but that’s the...

Beldray 2 in 1 Cordless steam iron review

Beldray 2 in 1 Cordless steam iron Beldray as a brand is new to me, but since using this particular product I’ve realised I’d become one of those big brand people, only really considering a recognised brand when looking for new equipment to buy. It’s never really been a wholly conscious decision but we do tend to believe what we see in the media, and we do tend to perceive a recognised household name as a more durable and better quality product. I’ve used this Beldray 2 in 1 cordless iron a few times now having got through a few loads of...

How to reduce gluten in your diet, without even noticing.

Pasta lovers: How to reduce gluten in your diet, without even noticing. Review of Barilla gluten free pasta range If you’re wondering whether to cut down on gluten in your diet, then gluten free pasta is a useful addition to your kitchen cupboard.    If you’re cooking for kids, then you’ll know that pasta is a reliable crowd pleaser, so I was keen to try out Barilla’s gluten free pasta range which is made from corn and rice rather than wheat. It’s estimated that 6% of the population suffer from some sort of gluten sensitivity (1) which...

Hot Air Fryer Review

Hot Air Fryer Review I don’t know about you but every New Year I’m full of good intentions for a healthy lifestyle so, as a working mum I do like it when a time and labour saving device presents itself and this totally caught my attention straight away. Kids love chips, but for me they’re a pain. I don’t use the oven much, the slow cooker is on almost daily along with the veg steamer so to put the oven on just for chips isn’t going to happen so steamed potatoes, mostly mashed is our way forward to get those carbs that kids, annoyingly, like...

Waffle Maker Review

Waffle Maker Review

Flip Over Waffle Maker Review The second kitchen gadget we’ve been testing from the American Originals range at Argos is the Waffle Maker. Similarly to the Ice Cream Maker, it’s another way to get the kids in the kitchen. The first thing to note is that it’s a slimline piece of kit, as a result it’s found itself in a permanent on top of the counter position. Normally we’d store such items in the cupboard until we need them but this little thing, (due to its daily use!) has a permanent home. I don’t normally...
