Kuhn Rikon Colori Krinkle Knife Review

Yet again, another great product from Kuhn Rikon. The Colori Krinkle Knife should be in every kitchen!

Cost: 5/5
At £9.95 the Krinkle Knife is cheaper than a lot of knives on the market, the fact it creates a crinkle in the cut food and the curved edge make this knife stand out and well worth the money!

Ease Of Use: 5/5
If you thought normal knives were easy to use wait until you’ve used the Krinkle knife! The ergonomic handle makes it a cinch to use. This knife is perfect for cutting herbs using a rocking motion and is a simple way to make cut vegetables look that little bit more interesting.

Pros:
• Affordable and well worth the money.
• Ergonomic handle makes cutting easy.
• Comes with its own protective sheath.
• Adds interest to food with little effort.

Cons:

I honestly can’t fault this product at all. The only thing I’m worried about is if the blade becomes dull I have no idea how to sharpen it.

Kuhn Rikon Stackable Storage Jars Review

I was recently sent some great looking Kuhn Rikon storage jars to review.

kuhn rikon stackable storage jars

Look how cool they are!!!

 

Anyway, without further ado, onto the review!!

 

 

Cost: 4/5
The two larger jars are £7.95 each and the smaller are £4.95.
At first I thought this was a little pricey but after some research on the market, that seems to be the general prices for similar jars. At least with these you get some extra features like stack-ability and style.

 

Size: 5/5

With four different sizes to choose from you won’t be left disappointed.

You won’t really need a jar smaller than the smallest nor one much bigger than the biggest.

 

 

Ease Of Use: 4/5

What can be easier than a twist top? But this twist top is not like those jam jars that are nigh impossible to undo. It is extremely easy to open and just as easy to close the lid.

Style: 5/5

I love the look of the Kuhn Rikon jars, nothing better than actual glass jars so you don’t get the taste of plastic on your food and there is something so modern looking about the mix of glass and bright coloured lids.

My only moan is that I wish each size came in each of the colours, the mix of all four colours may work in some kitchens but it would be nice to have the option to have all of the sizes in one uniform colour.

Pros:

  • They look amazing and they stack, perfect for smaller kitchens!
  • Very sturdy. No thin, brittle glass here. (Please don’t take that as they are indestructible.)
  • Very versatile.
  • The jars can fit in each other for easy storage.

Cons:

  • Not watertight (I presume that means not airtight? please let me know if I’m wrong!)
  • Lack of colour co-ordination.

 

How I tested and used the product:

To keep cut fruit:

Sadly the fruit did brown a little, this was about 4 hours later.

To store Tea, Sugar, Coffee and Cocoa:

As a serving bowl:

Yep, that’s right I used the largest jar to serve some ramen.

It contained:

  • Ramen
  • Boiled egg
  • Mushroom
  • Carrot and
  • Donner meat

It was delicious!

 

So overall I Love these Kuhn Rikon jars, it’s a shame they’re not watertight (airtight?) but that only means you can’t fill them with soup and carry it around with you, which I think the likelihood of anyone actually wanting to is pretty slim.

Kuhn Rikon bamboo chopping board review

I was graciously sent some great Kuhn Rikon products to review.
Here is my review of the Bamboo Chopping Board

20131117-180305.jpg

Cost: /5

For £19.95 you can get your hands on this great chopping board.
While there are cheaper bamboo boards this great board is made of a special antibacterial bamboo that feels like plastic but without the worry of warping.

Size: 4 / 5

This chopping board is large enough to house a very large piece of whatever you like to cut without being so cumbersome that you wouldn’t have anywhere to store it.

Ease Of Use: 5/5

I know what you’re thinking, ” Is there a wrong way to use a chopping board?” No maybe not but this has a few little extras making it great! Like a groove for juices to flow into and even lines so you have perfectly matching cubes of carrots or chicken!

Style: 5/5

Available in three colours: Black, Beige and Grey. These neutral colours would go with almost any kitchen decor!

Pros:
• Antibacterial.
• Two versatile chopping surfaces.
• Lines for even chopping and grooves. for the juice to prevent food slipping.
• Sturdy, nonslip feet.

Cons:
• Fairly pricy

Kuhn Rikon paring knife review

I was graciously sent some great Kuhn Rikon products to review.
Here is my review of the Colori Pairing Knife

20131117-163427.jpg

Cost: 5/5

At £6.95 per knife, this is one of the cheapest chef-worthy knives I’ve seen. And at just under £7 I wasn’t expecting it to be an amazingly useful knife…how wrong I was!

Size: 3/5

At 10cm they are the perfect size for vegetables and smaller pieces of meat. You may need a larger blade for larger pieces of meat though.

Ease Of Use: 5/5

I’ve heard that cheaper knives just don’t have the same cutting ability as more expensive knives. We’ll let me tell you, this knife is the best knife I’ve ever used. Gone are the days of trying to hack my way through even softer items. This knife slides through vegetables and meat with little effort!

Style: 5/5

Available in a range of colours and even patterns, there will be no problem finding a knife that is perfect for your kitchen style!

Pros:
• Cheap
• Sharp
• Lots of variations
• Safety Sheath

Cons:
• The colour on the knives can sadly be scratched off 😦

Kuhn Rikon mandoline review

I was graciously sent some great Kuhn Rikon products to review.
Here is my review of the Dual Thick and Thin Mandolin

20131117-170710.jpg

Cost: 4/5

At £19.95 this may seem a pricy but of kit but it’s worth it! Most other single mandolins I’ve seen are around £10 so this is pretty much the same as buying two separate mandolins except this is one item that cuts two different sizes.

Size: 5/5

This is the perfect shape and size to be hung on a nail/tack on the inside of a cupboard door. That’s where mine is!

Ease Of Use: 5 /5

This couldn’t be easier to use! Simply place over a bowl and the lip on the mandolin will stop it from slipping, choose which size (thick or thin) of vegetable you want and then use the included hand guard to slice vegetables in a flash!

Style: 5/5

Available in red or green these sleek mandolins look great!

Pros:
• Comes with thick or thin cutting variations.
• Includes two blade covers.
• Included finger guard/ vegetable holder.
• Flat and easy to store.
• Lip keeps the mandolin steady

Cons:
• Might be a little cost prohibitive.
