Review: OXO Kitchen Tongs - Total Tong Madness

We've been sent a few items to review in the past, but never have we received 3 variations on the same kitchen gadget/tool as we did just last week. Before we received these three sets of tongs, we were very tong challenged. What type of old tongs did we have? We used a set of wooden and steel BBQ tongs for most things here in the kitchen - and to tell you the truth - it wasn't a pretty sight. The tongs didn't collapse, we often had food stuck all over them, and they weren't precise enough. Well - now that we have 3 different OXO tongs - life is much easier.

The OXO Good Grips Silicone Flexible Tongs
can grab just about anything with the large silicone heads.

We really like all the tongs, and one would think having 3 sets of tongs is too much - it really isn't. Each of the OXO tongs can be used for different kitchen cooking tasks, and we really like the larger 12" tongs with the lock, as we can put them away in our giant bin of kitchen tools.

Review: OXO Good Grips Mango Splitter

We love just about anything mango, but what we don't love is having to get the mango out of the mango. Mangos tend to have a very large seed in the middle, and the entire process can really take some time. When we heard OXO - maker of just about any kitchen gadget you could want made a mango splitter, we realized our mango intake could increase if we had such a gadget, and perhaps be a bit less of a hassle.

The OXO Good Grips Mango Splitter is pretty straight forward. It's much like an apple corer with two big soft grips on the side. The middle part of the OXO Good Grips Mango Splitter slides down over the mango seed and splits the mango.

First you'll need a mango, ours is a bit green but will do.

The Clear2O™ Water Filtration System produces cleaner water and removes five times more NSF certified contaminants through a unique block carbon filter that uses pressure to force the water through solid carbon and eliminates more contaminants than granulated or powered carbon found in most pitcher filters. The result is cleaner, healthier, great tasting water and a pitcher that holds 50% more filtered water, and can be filled in 38 seconds – nearly 9 times faster than the other comparable filtered water pitchers.
