BBQ GRILL PAN MAT – A CAVE TOOLS REVIEW

During these Summer months, cookouts are a staple of all celebrations. There’s nothing as relaxing as spending a day in the sun, spatula in hand and music playing in theIMG_4689 background, surrounded by friends and loved ones. But what can be a little less relaxing is keeping the grill clean and ready for roasting during and between those cookouts. That is why, when I was given the opportunity to try out the Cave Tools BBQ Grill Pan Mat, I was immediately on board.

One of the best features of this Grill Mat is its stainless-steel structure. It’s sturdy and built to reduce dripping and slipping. The sides of the mat are raised to keep all food on the cooking surface, which is such a small detail that makes a monumental difference in the function of a grilling mat. In addition, it’s a tool that can be used with so many different types of food. I love to make sunny side up eggs on the grill and, when I made them on this mat, they had the perfect amount of crispiness; it was a complete gamechanger, as I spent most of my life making eggs in a pan! You can guess what my new favorite breakfast is, right?

For only $21.99, this is a gamechanger. Having more cooking options means more time spent enjoying great food and making plenty more for everyone to share!

If you enjoy grilling without the hassle, too, you should give this mat a chance. I assure you, your BBQ’s will be fire (pun intended!).

If you use my promo code, GRILLPAN15, you’ll get 15% off your purchase! To purchase this item, you can visit their Amazon store or the Cave Tools website.

Let me know your experience with this purchase, and what kind of recipes you’ve been cooking up this Summer!

Cave Tools Metal Meat Claws – A Cave Tools Review

Recently I’ve switched to a higher protein diet, and what comes with that is having to constantly prepare meat: brisket, chicken, steak, everything under IMG_4625.JPGthe sun. Which, as someone who doesn’t find spending time in the kitchen to be a chore, I just consider to be part of my routine. However, I, like everyone else, prefer to streamline the hard parts of the cooking: the prep work. That’s why, when I was given the opportunity to give Cave Tools’ Metal Meat Claws a go, I was right on board.

At first glance and use, I was pleasantly surprised by their size and sturdiness. They’re incredibly sharp for ease when cutting and get the job done in a flash. Not to mention they make it a whole lot easier for me to remove meat from my crockpot! Make sure that, when handling them, you keep your hands safe from the blades. When I say they’re sharp, I mean they’re SHARP. But hey, that’s what they’re meant for, right?

IMG_4624.JPG

They’ve got an easy to use, comfortable grip that makes cooking a breeze, even when my hands are greasy. They’re clearly built with user friendliness in mind.

If you’d like to give them a go too, head over to their Amazon site or their website.

Even better, use the code MEATCLAW15 to get a whopping 15% off your purchase! What do you have to lose?

Let me know in the comments how your experience was with this product and whether you’d recommend it to a fellow foodie!

ALUMINUM BURGER PRESS PATTY MAKER – A CAVE TOOLS REVIEW

We all know that feeling (at least the carnivorous ones). You’re really craving a good cavetools2-counter.jpgburger, but you’re dreading the messy pre-cooking preparation. It’s not always the most appealing to have your hands covered in ground beef. That’s why I think this tool is essential. Cave Tools Burger Press Patty Maker takes the mess out of making burgers. I was thrilled to get my hands on this tool, so when Cave Tools offered to let me try it out in exchange for an honest review, your girl couldn’t say yes fast enough!

cavetools1.png

Using this tool, I easily completed my meal prep for the next few weeks in half the time! We bought lean ground beef in bulk and managed to make enough to have for the week as well as plenty of burger patties to freeze for later days (can you say a win-win?!) This tool is a total blessing to anyone who loves cooking, but is always looking for ways to streamline their prep process!

One particular feature that I really enjoy is the handle feature. The handle on the burger press is shaped perfectly for ease of use and can be removed for proper storage. IIMG_20171202_130926 also really enjoy the shape and build of this product. It’s built to last for years of use and molds a perfect 1/3 pound burger EVERY SINGLE TIME. All you do is place the meat in the mold and press down on the top and it forms into a ready-to-cook slab!

 

If this sounds like something that would be right down your ally too, Cave Tools has given my readers an exclusive 15% off coupon: BURGER15.

If you want to purchase this product, it can be bought from both Amazon and the Cave Tools website!

Let me know what your experience is like with this game changer.

48 Blade Meat Tenderizer – A CAVE TOOLS REVIEW

We’ve all been there. We feast our eyes on a plate before us, covered in a slab of scrumptious steak. We can’t wait to dig our teeth into it. That is, until we do, and realize that it’s tough. It sure does kill the illusion, doesn’t it?

Cave Tools approached me with the opportunity to test out their 48 Blade Meat Tenderizer, and let me just say that I wasn’t sure what to expect. I had never had an all-in-one tenderizer tool before, and I wasn’t sure how to gage my expectations. Would the meat MEET its match?

Honestly, yes. This nifty little tool made tenderizing meat a total breeze. No more sad attempts at tenderizing with a fork, or having to worry about my meal not reaching expectations. I kid you not, this tool took a slab of steak from homemade to restaurant-grade. The little blades allow the marinade to soak deeper into the meat and make the meat cook significantly more thoroughly.

One of my favorite features about this design is the ease of IMG_3624.JPGuse. I highly appreciate the fact that the tips of the blades are not outwardly exposed to allow for easy handling. The design was made with safety in mind as well as functionality. As you can see in my image, the blades push through the slits on the bottom of the device when pressure is applied, promising much less kitchen injury potential. The device is also shaped in a way that is beneficial to its use, as the top of it forms to the curvature of a hand. Overall, I’m very impressed with the Tenderizer and I’m certain you will, too.

Are you ready to try it for yourself?

You can find it on the Cave Tools website, or on Amazon!

With my code, TENDER15, you can save 15%, too!

Let me know about your experience with the 48 Blade Tenderizer. I love to hear all about how you guys put your new tools to use in the kitchen!

Barbecue Spatula with Bottle Opener – A CAVE TOOLS REVIEW

Note: I do not and will not ever endorse companies or products that I do not or would not use myself. I firmly believe in the quality of this company. This review is my honest, firsthand experience with the 3 piece stainless steel barbecue set from Cave Tools. 

When I was approached to review the Barbecue Spatula by Cave Tools, I was elated. There’s nothing I love more than good food, especially good barbecue. This spatula is going to come in handy, whether it’s cookouts, parties, or just making some quality food at home! But the question is, is it up to the test?

My spatula arrived quickly and I was so quick to open it up and check it out for myself. At first glance, it looks sturdy, SO shiny, and it img_3103has a very long handle, which will be great for avoiding cooking burns (I have so many cooking battle scars, and not because I’m not good in the kitchen! Haha). The spatula is heavyweight and made of high quality stainless steel. It’s apparent that Cave Tools develops tools with use (AND aesthetic!) in mind. The length and the sturdiness of the spatula are perfect for grilling; it’s not too flimsy to pick up multiple fillets at once and it’s incredibly resistant to heat. Not only that. It looks great! The sleek design of the spatula won’t be an eyesore when hanging on a hook in the kitchen!

The spatula comes with additional (highly useful) features, such as a serrated edge, which can be quite useful when preparing the meal before cooking, as well as a bottle-opener, so you can host while you grill! Pop open a beer and have some barbecue, all in one go!

If you’d like to check out Cave Tools for yourself, they are offering you guys a 15% off coupon code: SPATULA15! You can get a spatula of your own on the website or on the Cave Tools Amazon store!

A great thing about buying from Cave Tools is their lifetime satisfaction guarantee. They believe in the quality of their products and are very customer service oriented. They want to provide only the best, which I think they have thoroughly proven time and time again. I try these products and review them with honesty, and when I say that I have been satisfied with each and every one of them, I mean it. I, so far, have not found a Cave Tool that I haven’t enjoyed.

Let me know what you think of the barbecue spatula if you do purchase it in the comments below. I’d love to hear all about your experience with the product as well!

Cave Tools Jalapeno Grill Rack and Pepper Corer – A Cave Tools Review

DSC_0102

I’m pleased to say that I’ve been approached to try another product by Cave Tools. When I was told it was the Cave Tools Jalapeno Grill Rack and Pepper Corer, the spicy food lover within me was thrilled.

For the specs of the product, it is 11.8 inches by 8.3 inches by 2 inches. It’s made of stainless steel and it has a smooth, sturdy finish. It comes with a stainless steel pepper corer to allow your pepper preparation to be swift and successful. The rack has 24 holes to put peppers in, each being 1 inch wide, perfect size for a popper. One of the great parts about this product is that you can easily use it for not only peppers, but a number of other things, like chicken drumsticks! My favorite feature of the stainless steel rack is the legs, because they fold in for easy storage and lock in standing mode, allowing the rack not to fall when placed on the grill. I’d easily give this product a solid 5 stars. It’s something that I know I’ll be using quite often in the future!

If you’re considering checking out this product for yourself, head on over to the website or their Amazon page. If you utilize the code, ROASTPEPPER15, you’ll get an extra 15% off your purchase!

Beer Can Chicken Roasting Rack & Vegetable Spikes – A Cave Tools Review

DSC_0022.JPG

I had heard about the wonders of beer can chicken (as any college student has, being the ultimate experts on all things beer!) before, but I had never actually tried it out for myself. I am ashamed to say that this is the first time I’ve tried it firsthand, and let me just take a moment to say that I will never look back. Beer can chicken is to die for, and I couldn’t have been able to do it without the help of my Beer Can Chicken Roasting Rack from Cave Tools.

I’m pleased to say that I have been approached to review Cave Tools’ new, nifty tool, the Beer Can Chicken Rack. There’s something really exciting about getting to open a fresh, clean, brand-spankin-new kitchen tool (at least for me!). I feel like it’s Christmas, and this set had me feeling super spoiled!

The set comes with a tray, a stand for the chicken (and the beer!), of course, and spikes on the exterior of the tray to cook your favorite veggies as well (which I’ve found works great with corn on the cob!). The tray rises at the exterior edges to prevent grease spillage (which is a huge plus for a no-mess clean up) and the separate pieces come apart easily for quick assembly and removal. The entire design is made of stainless steel, making it durable for longterm use and able to be washed in the dishwasher (which is always a blessing). It’s apparent that a great deal of thought went into the design and function of this tool and I am incredibly pleased with my first use!

If you’re looking to expand your cooking horizons, this is a great tool to get the ball rolling. It’s super easy to use and the result will make you look like a kitchen superstar (I know my friends were amazed).

Wanna save 15% off your purchase? Cave Tools has given my readers and subscribers a special 15% off discount using the word BEERCAN15.

If you want to try it out for yourself, the Beer Can Chicken Rack can be bought through Amazon or directly through the website.

Let me know how the roasting rack worked for you, and if you followed a recipe, by all means, post it below. I’d love to hear about your experience with this tool and what delicious entree you ended up making!

Pigtail Food Flippers – A Cave Tools Review

IMG_2210.jpg

If you’re like me, you’re always looking for ways to make meal prepping a breeze. It can be such a time-consuming process, from getting all the materials out, to preparing each meal, to combining them in proper amounts in Tupperware for later munchies.

One tool that has helped immensely in my healthy eating journey is the Pigtail Food Flipper, which was provided to me by Cave Tools, a company I trust immensely, to do a review of! I was thrilled to have the opportunity to try it out for myself and was pleasantly surprised by how easy it was to use.

So you might be asking “What’s a Pigtail Food Flipper?”

You know when you’ve marinated a good ol’ slab of steak to put on the grill to cook, and you need to flip it to cook the other side, but you don’t want to lose all that juicy goodness in the process? That’s where the Pigtail Food Flippers come in. They make it so that anything can be flipped with ease, whether it’s on the grill or in a pan. Why lose the hard work of preparing a marinade to a simple food flip, when there’s something like this on the market for such an affordable price?

One of my favorite features about this nifty tool is the sturdy rubber grip handle. Even when my hands are wet or greasy from food prep, this handle is easy to hold and is shaped to fit perfectly in your hand. The overall quality of the Food Flippers is very high. The metal is durable and molded for efficiency and the handle has a hole so you can hang your tools if you’d prefer not to stash them in a drawer, which I can appreciate, as it’s always impossible to find what I’m looking for when everything is bunched into the same spot.

You’re probably wondering how much they’re going to cost you. You’ll be pleased to know that your wallet won’t be crying after this purchase. They’re $17.99 on the website, which already is a steal for something this easy and effective to use, but with my discount code, PIGTAIL15, you get an additional 15% OFF! You can’t beat it!

Want to get some of your own? You can get the Pigtail Food Flippers on Amazon if you click here, and if you’d like to buy them directly from the website, you can buy them from here.

V-SHAPED SMOKER BOX – A CAVE TOOLS REVIEW

cavetoolssmokebox.jpg

Ever since I was a kid, I’ve always been a fan of the smoked taste. I’ve found that any meat, from chicken to beef to pork, tastes incredible with just a little bit of smoke and I’m always looking for that extra little kick of bold flavor. With that being said, I was thrilled when Cave Tools offered me the large V-Shaped Smoker Box to test and review! I think one of my favorite features of this product is the wide range of meals that can be prepared with this singular product. I love to experiment with cooking and this is a nifty little tool that makes creating a variety of different meals a breeze. In addition, it’s portable and has a noticeably durable build. I get the feeling it will be in use for many years to come!

Notable features:

  • The water reservoir can be used to either thicken the smoke for a bolder taste, or can be removed altogether to leave more room for wood chips.
  • There’s a great deal of space inside the box to fit the wood chips. More wood chips à more of that smokey flavor that you love! More chips, more of that delicious flavor!
  • There aren’t holes on the bottom of the unit, which means the chips won’t burn.
  • The price is exceptionally affordable. For the quality of the product, your money is being well spent. Why waste your money on a product that is nothing but empty promises, when you can get one that’s not only within your budget but also works like a charm?

 

Cave tools is so confident in the quality of their product that they offer a LIFETIME GUARANTEE, meaning that if you feel like your product isn’t what you were expecting, you can receive a full refund for your purchase. That is not only outstanding customer service, but shows that they believe in the products they put on the market!

If you’d like to try it out for yourself, the Smoker Box can be bought either on Amazon or the Cave Tools website!

AND if you purchase from Amazon, Cave Tools has so kindly provided my readers with a special 15% off discount code on your Smoker Box purchase: F9SCPBQK

Hamburger Press with Built-In Dimpler – A Cave Tools Review

 

DSC_0225 copy

There’s nothing like a delicious, home-cooked meal. If you’re a foodie like me, you probably find yourself preparing meals for the upcoming week and are looking for ways to store them more efficiently. That is why, when I was asked to review Cave Tools’ newest product, the Hamburger Press with Built-In Dimpler, I was thrilled to work it into my meal prep routine.

More often than not, I like to pre-prepare and freeze meals so that, in between classes, I am able to grab them on the go without hassling myself with the cooking process. The Hamburger Press, I’ve realized, has become an asset to this routine because, not only can it store leftover hamburger patties, but it’s also useful when storing more liquid-based meals like my homemade green bean soup. I really appreciate the versatility of this product.

The press is made of a material that is both freezer and dishwasher safe, which I think is incredibly important. The way that the rubber is structured on the press allows for much thicker burger patties (we’re talking six 1/3 pound burgers here!), which I have yet to hear any complaints about. The material remains resilient and has a sturdy build that I’m sure will last me for many years to come.

I would honestly recommend this product to anyone who enjoys cooking and prepares meals in bulk. For my readers, Cave Tools has offered a 15% off discount code for the purchase of this product on Amazon, which can be redeemed using the following phrase: LZEN8T4G.
