Kettle and omelette maker

A couple of recent purchases.

My daughter found this and bought one, and I was so impressed I got one too – since then son no 2 has one and another couple of freinds. Its idiot proof, simply mix a couple of eggs, little salt and pepper and whack in for 6-8 mins and thats it.
No need for oil or fat though you can add a little butter for flavour is you want. To the basic I’ve added combos of herbs ( basil, chives, parsley, oregano,thyme ) cheese, ham, tomatoes, mushrooms, potatoes (best pre-cooked) peppers etc
Two lge, 3 med eggs fills both sides leaving a lovely fluffy omelette, and the pan just needs a quick wipe out to clean. Add a little salad and hey presto, quick supper.
I’ve also tried cooking pancakes, I added walnuts and maple syrup, and they worked well, though I made my mix a bit too thick. You could use it for other things too – roasted veg, poached eggs, use a little water and drop eggs in whole.
Its a great little device for a tiny cost. Was a tenner when I bought back in Aug – not checked price today

My kettle died, I wanted a cheap replacement that was easy to use and most important lightweight. With my old one though it looked gorgeous it was heavy to lift and I found it hard to remove the lid, and as it was on the top if the kettle was still hot the steam made it uncomfortable. This one is light, easy to balance and the lid flips up to fill. As I have arthritis in my hands and wrists that means it easier for me to use.
The only problems I had was the filter that “fits” in the spout. the damn think kept falling out eat time I filled it so eventually I binned it. So long as the limescale is cleaned out regularly its fine without. I take a plastic washing up brush every now and then and scour out the inside, that keeps the scaling down to a minimum. When it does need cleaning I just use some white vinegar, leave overnight, tip out, rinse well and that’s it.

About jeanniezelos

I'm an avid reader, love my kindle and I have my head in a novel for hours daily : ) Mum used to say I'd read toilet paper if it was printed- it wasn't, so i had to contend myself with the back and sides of the cereal packets. I've always Needed to read and we had few books when i was a child hence my penchant for reading anything including adverts then... I review mainly contemporary, erotic and paranormal romance books though dystopian and urban fantasy also appeal. I'm currently rated around the 300 mark on amazon.co.uk for my reviews. I try to keep them structured and to say what I do and don't like about a book so other readers can use my review as a guide to whether they may enjoy the book.
