Grab the Summer Fruit for These Good Cook Gadgets - Giveaway

Welcome to the Good Cook Review and Giveaway

Is there much else better than a bowl of cold fresh fruit on a hot summer day? It tends to be my go-to offer when invited to a summer BBQ. I get an odd satisfaction from scooping and slicing different fruits then watching all the colors come together in a bowl. Whatever is left after my son and I pick through as I slice it all is what we take with us.

What is even more fun is that each season there seems to be even more gadgets out that make coking, baking and slicing fruit much easier and safer than large knives and cutting boards. Good Cook has so many handy gadgets for the kitchen and these are some I will give much use to over summer.

Good Cook Pineapple Slicer: In some easy twists this cores, peels and slices pineapple into perfect rings. Then simply toss the rind. I love to store the juice that remains behind i the cavity for cocktails or punches.

Good Cook Melon Baller: Made with Industrial grade stainless steel and plastic, this heavy-duty baller has two scoop sizes on its dual head design. Great to quickly ball out honeydew and cantaloupe for salads and cocktails.

Good Cook Jumbo Fruit Slicer: What a time saver! This slicer instantly cuts large fruits like watermelon, pineapple and other melons. Simply cut off the top, place slicer, give it a quick saw motion and slice down! Easy and safe!

Good Cook Locking Lids Vented Storage Containers: These containers are vented for ultimate freshness sealed in as you store all this fruit!

Ozeri Professional Series Induction Pan Giveaway

This feature is in partnership with Ozeri

In a world where you can research the perfect pan for every need, this pan is the only one you will need. Being an Ozeri fan because of their quality and easy access on Amazon Prime I am in love with my new pan. I have the Ozeri Professional Series Induction Pan in Black Onyx, Made in Italy. Induction is the key word in the title!

This pan is made in Italy and is made with durable aluminum core with a magnetized aisi 430 steel base plate. No stove will deny the materials of this pan. We have been staying in a hotel while our home build completes in our new town. I forgot to pack a toaster so I have been heating muffins and bread on stovetop. Now my son is spoiled. He loves that I butter his raisin breads then stove toast them so much that even when we get our toaster unpacked in the new place he will be requesting stove toasted bread anyway. 

Because it delivers unprecedented non-stick performance throwing buttered bread and leaving it until the perfect crunch is so simple. I decided to pack this pan for hotel living because it is made with a hardened scratch-resistant coating that is super easy to clean and comfortable heat-resistant silicon coated handle. This makes it perfect for travel and durability in and out of boxes.

Awesome Kitchen Organization Products Induction

How are your kitchen cupboards? I would consider myself organized. I do not like clutter so I am good at tossing or donating what I am not using before I let it take up space any longer. But I still deal with crowded kitchen cupboards. I am always on the hunt for awesome kitchen organization products to help me out. I have several I use, but I will introduce you to 2 of them I use in my pots and pan cupboard.

Pan features

I was introduced to an induction pan a while back and tossed it into our RV to use when camping. Meanwhile my kitchen cupboards in my home were loaded with about 8 pans, lots of large pots and woks. I was able to condense after getting my hands on an induction pan for my home.

Because it is a high wall pan I can use it for one-pot meals, braising meats, frying meat and seafoods, make sauces and boil liquids. I can donate away at least 3 different pots and pans that separately do all I can do in 1 induction pan.

pan for all foods

If you are looking for a recommendation, the pan I use is the Kuhn Rikon Easy Induction Pan. You can find it online at Amazon or visit the brand’s website. An induction pan radiates heat evenly along all of its surface from the sides to the bottom of the pan. This is why you can even use it to boil liquids and make sauces. It really does multiple jobs in one product. That saves space. Or you can have what I used to have pictured below.


The next kitchen organization product I am now using are the Lid Master Lid Organizers. They come in 2-packs and I have more on order for my kitchen and RV. You can use this handy product to stack lids that stay in place, stack pans safely to avoid scratching. Have you attempted to stack lids? It is impossible. Now you can and I am in love with these.

BONUS: Want a free MOVING GUIDE? I have one I made for my readers. Get your guide HERE!


Look below! How awesome is that? Again, Amazon has these in stock and you can also visit the brands website. These are made by Frieling that offers fresh solutions like these.

EdgeKeeper Knives

Is your kitchen filling to the brim in the cupboards and drawers from gadgets? Mine is. I am constantly trying to find efficient products that have multiple functions or are smaller so I can replace and toss out other gadgets. This is why I can get so excited by a self-sharpening knife so that I won’t need my bulky knife sharpener that barely fits in the knife drawer. I use the Sabatier® Edgekeeper® Knives.

The sheath not only protects fingers but sharpens as you slide the blade in and out of the built-in knife sharpener. The blade is made from high-carbon steel which means you get a durable knife strong enough to last years.
