Just Mustard sent me their The Shake’n’Make (RRP £15) and a microwave popcorn maker (RRP £20) to hold my own private movie night without the trouble of leaving my home. We added Toy Story to the mix, closed the curtains and off we went…
It has to be said that the speedy ice-cream maker made the biggest impression on both my little boys and the older members of the family. Basically you add cream and/or milk, sugar and any flavourings then make sure you have salt and ice in a separate chamber of the pot – shake for about 3 minutes and you have ice-cream. I know! It’s clearly magic. Amazingly quick and was a very exciting science experiment that prompted a quick lesson in what salt does and how ice-cream is made. There are even ‘recipes’ (very simple suggestions) in the instructions so no need to be a culinary whizz to get this right. Here’s a pic of the maker:
Things I liked: The novelty value! The fact it kept little hands busy. And of course the delicious and edible results.
Things I didn’t like: The amount made is pretty small which could be a good thing depending on your view point. I also wonder how often we might use this once the novelty has worn off.
We also tried out the microwave popcorn maker. A pleasing to the eye bright red ‘bucket’ where you place a measuring scoop of popcorn kernals, some oil and any flavourings – a few minutes later you have popcorn. Very easy and perfect for making a less calorific snack than the usual popcorn you buy pre bagged.
Things I liked: Easy to measure, quick to make and no need for hot pans of oil on the stove. Also – so cheap! Popcorn kernels are inexpensive meaning you can save a lot of money with this gadget if you’re a popcorn household.
Things I didn’t like: Nothing really other than I have to find a place to store it! We are very short on kitchen space in this house.
I have two movie night kits to giveaway consisting of a microwave popcorn maker and an ice-cream maker each, worth £35 per set.
