My Top 5 Food Products in 2015 plus Christmas Giveaway #2

Well, 2015 has been a wonderful year on Food Glorious Food. Most excitingly, 3 of my recipes have been featured in the National Press (which I will discuss further in another post closer to Christmas). I have found my cooking niche, eaten a range of cuisines and worked with several Public Relation brands. There's often a big debate regarding bloggers working with public relations and receiving products/sponsored posts/ restaurant meals but I will share my views on this matter in full on another post. On the whole, I have had a wonderful experience working with food companies and public relation  and have been introduced to some fabulous items which have become firm favourite in my kitchen. It would be difficult to share all of my wonderful products I have reviewed, but I have managed to narrow it down to my 5 most loved products in 2015.

Hotpoint Blender
There is a new kitchen essential that all foodies should consider: Hotpoint's Steam Blender. For the busy cook, or those who are pressed on time, I consider this small kitchen appliance to be essential to make: soups, milkshakes, juices, baby food and crushing ice, in a matter of minutes, in fact, I've made a soup from start to finish in 15 minutes. 


Positives
Easy to use.
Perfect to make smoothies, juices, soups, baby food and milk shakes.
Can blend a large amount of fruit or veg.
4 different settings.
Cooks and blends.
Made by a revered brand.
Looks stylish in the kitchen.
Reasonably priced.


Stellar Tate Stackable Draining Casserole

Stellar Cookware, the revered cookware brand, also known as "The Choice of Professionals", have developed a new cookware collection called Stellar Tate. The geniuses behind this well revered brand, have developed a new set of innovative cookware which enables saucepans and casserole dishes to be easily stackable, allowing better safety and storage in your kitchen. What is impressive about this new range is that draining liquids from the saucepans or casserole dishes easier to handle, as the innovative pan lid is a handle that locks to the main pan handle, this alongside the pouring lips allows liquid to be safely poured away, using one hand for the saucepans and two hands for the casserole pans. Effectively, using this range, there will be little need for a colander to drain liquids from pans. Each saucepan and casserole dish comes with Stellar Lifetime Guarantee - is likely that the saucepans and casserole dishes will last last longer than me! 





Jubella London
Jubella offers something that I have not seen before during my time food blogging: contemporary vibrant prints in the form of Aprons and Oven gloves. Inspired by the "laid back coastal lifestyle and Africa being a place of vibrant colour and energy" their kitchen collection will brighten up any kitchen across the UK. My apron is perfect for Summer: so colourful, vibrant and bold, but would also brighten up the Winter kitchen.

Oxo Omlette Flipper
 I thought that whilst this product is entitled "omelette turner", it will be equally suitable to turn pancakes or when making quesadillias. You see the pancakes I make fill the frying pan and I often find it difficult to flip them over without causing the mixture to spray over. The flexible head and edges is perfect for sliding the underneath pancakes or omelettes. I loved using this product and promptly used this when making my Elvis Presley Pancakes which I may add turned out to perfectly shaped. The thing that impressed me most, was the length of the omelette turner which again made this product easy to use and flip. Retailing at £8, this is a gadget which will be welcome in your chicken. 




Oxo Frying Pan
This frying pan has been regular featured on my social media sites. It's so versatile and I have cooked a number of dishes in the frying pan. I love the size (24cm) 3 layer non-stick pan and most importantly is hob and oven safe ( I love finishing dishes off in the oven). You can see my review in full when you click on the link, but  many of you have shared how much you loved my pictures and would love to offer my first Christmas present on my blog of one of my most loved products this year.



All the products would make wonderful Christmas presents for the discerning foodie.
