ATG Stores is an Online Shopping Superstore!!
Over the past couple years, I have really come to enjoy shopping online. There's usually a much better variety and selection online, plus I like being able to read reviews on the items I am considering purchasing. Recently I discovered ATG Stores, and quickly discovered that this is an all-in-one shopping site! ATG Stores is a Lowe's company (our family's favorite home improvement store by the way), and they sell everything from appliances, furniture, outdoor accessories, lights, flooring and tools, to bedding, towels, cookware, pet products, and luggage. Basically, anything you need for your home-you can find at ATG Stores!
ATG Stores sent me a gift code to go shopping for my review, and I spent a few days browsing before placing my order. There is just so much to choose from! I finally ordered 2 items; a Pro Appliances Home Image 2.4 Liter Steamer, and a Brentwood Appliances 2-Speed Hand Blender.
The Hand Blender is something I've been looking at getting a for a little while now. We make smoothies and frappuccinos quite a bit, and I knew one of these would come in handy. Not to mention making soup as the weather gets cooler (hopefully pretty soon, too!). I was impressed that for $30.00, you can get a hand blender with stainless steel blades. Many of these come with plastic blades that don't last, and won't crush ice, period. The day the blender arrived, I set about mixing up some frappuccinos. I poured all the ingredients into a pitcher, and turned the blender on high. I was so impressed! WIthin seconds, the ice was crushed and everything was blended together for a perfectly-made frappuccino! Since that first use, I have made more frappuccinos and smoothies with this, and it is perfect for what I wanted. The stainless steel blades are amazing, and because they're not plastic, I am sure they will last a good long time!
The Pro Appliances Steamer is another amazing addition to our kitchen. We're trying to incorporate more veggies and healthy meats (not fried) in our diet, so this is an easy way to accomplish that goal. For my first trial, I steamed a couple chicken breasts for dinner. It actually took less time to steam a breast than it would have to cook in the oven, and it was so much more tender and moist! I was able to toss a sprig of rosemary in the steamer as well, and that gave the chicken a wonderful herbed flavor. A couple days later we steamed some broccoli, and again, it turned out perfect. This will definitely be seeing a lot of use for steamed veggies and meats!
After my experience with ATG Stores, I would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for any sort of home furnishing, appliance, or smaller items. The service is fast and friendly, and they have free shipping on orders over $29.99!
