I love finding new kitchen products, and when I found the Trudeau website, I spent quite a while just browsing their store! They have such a huge selection of kitchen tools, gadgets, and gift ideas! So, I was excited when they offered to send me 2 products for review-a set of 3 Mixing Bowls, and an adorable Fondue Set! The mixing bowls come in 2, 3, and 4 quart capacity. There are several benefits with these bowls that I noticed immediately. First, they have a wider handle/grip area, that makes it so easy to control the bowl while mixing! I hate using mixing bowls that just have a small rim around the complete bowl, and you can't get a grip! Second, the base is made for angling. It tilts at the perfect angle, so you can pour the batter into a pan very easily, and with less mess. The pour spout also comes in handy here! I also really like the rubber grip on the bottom of the bowl, that keeps it from sliding all over the counter.
The Iris Chocolate Fondue set is really cute, with a pretty heart design around the stoneware bowl. It comes with a 12 oz. bowl, stand, tea light, and 4 dipping forks. I was honestly amazed at how quickly the chocolate melted, with just a little tea light doing the work! For our first use, I sliced up bananas, and just melted some milk chocolate chips in the fondue. WOW! The whole family loved them! I think we will be pulling this out often, and trying different fruits out. (I think next time I'll try strawberries...mmm!)
