New Kitchen Gadgets from Snips – review

April 17, 2015Sew White

I love a kitchen gadgets and spending time in shops checking out things I didn’t know I needed and then want is something I do far too much. I have decided recently to only have pieces which are practical and useful, unlike so many things I’ve bought in the past which are only used a few times and then gets put in the back of cupboard and forgotten about. There is a fabulous company called Snips who do brilliantly fun and useful kitchen gadgets.

I want to share a few of my favourite and most useful pieces that are taking pride of place in my kitchen at the moment.
I really love that these items have been loved by my friends and family too. I’m surprised they haven’t been borrowed yet.

First up is the incredibly cute Mr Penguin ice cube tray. An ice cube tray with a lid. Yes a lid! I can never make ice cubes without loosing half the water while trying to close the drawer. For the first time I got the full size ice cubes and no spilled water in the freezer drawer. The lid also makes it fantastic for space saving as you can pop things on top or even stack more of them on top without disrupting the water and making puddles you have to chip out later.
The penguin is just a cute design addition to make it more fun and make you smile when you open the freezer.

 What also surprised me was how big the ice cubes are. The mould looks like it would make medium size ice cubes but they are brilliantly large perfect for drinks to enjoy in this mini heatwave we are having.

 Another brilliant freezer item from Snips is the Yogurt ice box. A wonderful packed lunch size box which you can use for anything cold. The ice pack fits in to the lid and the white layer holds it in. The spoon fits in to the box too which nice. It’s a great size and I’ve been using it for my packed lunch to keep my fruit salad cold. After 5 hours in my handbag the fruit salad was perfectly cool and the ice pack still really cold.

 The white mini lid layer helps keep juices/yogurt from leaking out and it closes and is very secure. It is a little hard undo almost!
Just a little note – take the ice pack out as before you eat from it. The ice pack is heavy so might tip the box over.

These are both briliant produce which I would recommend so much. My friends and family who helped me play about with this week all remarked ‘how clever’ and I think that the things. It’s so simply designed but so clever!

I was given these items to review. I was not paid for my review and all opinions are my own.

    I love the idea of the ice cube tray with a lid. My freezer is pretty small so I don’t make ice cubes all that often as, like you say, you can’t stack anything on top or they spill if they’re not completely level. The lid is such a simple idea, I can’t believe that it’s not more common.
    I love adding ice cubes to smoothies so I might have to have a look into getting one as it’ll mean I can have them more often.

      I have a tiny freezer too and it’s great for making ice cubes and still being able to pack the freezer.

      It certainly is. We didn’t have any ice in the house so we’ve going mad making it!
