More Great Kitchen Gadgets from Trudeau- #GetCooking Review

Let's Get Cooking

We were sent the following products for review purposes. All opinions are my own.

On Tuesday I shared two of the sweet new Trudeau products that I use in my kitchen all of the time now.  Today I want to share with you the other two products I got that I am loving!

First, one I have used more times than I can count since I received it; the Silicone Splatter Screen.

Splatter screenI love a product that is 2-in-1 or 3-in-1, something that can replace more than one product and save me some much needed cupboard space.  The Silicone Splatter Screen is just that!  It can be used as a splatter screen to keep your kitchen clean while you’re cooking things that may splatter, as a strainer (I LOVE this and use it all of the time for this), and as a trivet.  It is heat resistant to 482°F (250°C) and is dishwasher safe.  With it’s generous size- 11 inches in diameter- it fits over (and under) every pot and pan that we have.

Taking pictures of myself using this was nearly impossible, but I did my best.

Splatter ScreenStrainerTrivetI honestly use this all of the time.  There are very few meals I make that don’t require either a splatter screen, strainer, or trivet.  LOVE this!

The final product I received is the Zest Grater.

graterThis handy and rugged zest grater features an ultra fine grating surface that is ideal for lemons, limes, hard cheeses, nutmeg, garlic and vegetables. Each blade is honed to an optimum cutting angle for minimum effort and maximum flavor. The retractable handle doubles as a protective sleeve for secure storage. Also features a non-slip base. The zester is top rack dishwasher safe; however, to preserve the sharpness of the blades, it is recommended to hand wash.

Up until now, I did not own a zest grater.  There have been many recipes I’ve made that called for lemon zest or orange zest that I had to omit because I didn’t have a grater.  I tried using my cheese grater to do it, but that didn’t work well- at all.

Once I started making recipes with fresh ginger rather than ground ginger, I had to figure something out. I googled different things and tried different things, but nothing worked as well as a proper grater would have.  Right after I got the Trudeau zest grater, I happened to be making a recipe that called for ginger.  I grabbed this and was so stoked at how easy it was; it was wonderful not to have to struggle with other tools to try and get a tiny bit of fresh grated ginger!

Grating gingerI’m thrilled to have this zester for meals that call for something zested; it will be interesting to see how the recipe flavor changes when I don’t have to omit lemon or orange zest!

I also appreciate the safety measures taken to protect fingers (especially little, curious fingers) from being cut on the grater when it’s not in use.  The green button on the handle must be pressed down before the grater can be pulled out.  It locks in place for use, then a press of the button unlocks it and allows you to slide it closed again. Easy for me to do, not easy for my 3 year old.

Amanda also received two other awesome Trudeau products you’ll want to check out; the Kitchen Gloves and the Pinch Bowls.  Check out her review (I want those kitchen gloves)!!

  2. I love the splatter screen – and how it can be used as a 3-in-1 tool! 😀 Sounds like something we need for our kitchen.

  3. I do love the Splatter Screen! There are so many cool silicone items available for the kitchen that are HELPFUL! Love it! Love the zester, too. I have two, because I misplaced the first one, thought it lost, and bought another to replace it. Then, promptly found the first. Same thing happened with cats, but that is a story for another day…

    Great reviews! Thanks!

  4. Nice, that splatter screen is something I definitely need! I’m always cleaning up messes from cleaning, this would make things a lot easier.

  5. Love the splatter screen! I need that for my spaghetti! that seems to get everywhere!

  6. Oh I would LOVE that splatter screen! My kids clean the kitchen every night and one of my kids just told me that I need to learn how to cook better because of the splatters on the stove lol.

  7. I love multifunction products for my tiny kitchen, and the splatter screen sounds like a great one.

  8. I love kitchen items that are multi-purpose. We have limited cabinet space, so I need things that can be used in many ways.
