FIXBODY 7 Piece Portion Control Containers Kit

Standard

FIXBODY 7 Piece Portion Control Containers Kit (COMPLETE GUIDE + FREE 21 DAY PDF PLANNER + RECIPE E-BOOK + BODY PDF TRACKER included) – Leak proof, Perfect Size, Color-coded

I knew these containers were for portion control and dieting when I ordered them, but based on the pictures shown in the product description I expected them to be a bit larger. Part of my disappointment with this product is completely my own fault for not considering the fact that portion control means tiny sizes. If you are trying a very low calorie diet plan, then these will be perfect for you, otherwise you may want to make sure you understand what the capacity of each container is prior to placing an order.

The containers are thick and sturdy, leaving me to believe that they can withstand a lot of use. The color coding and labels are also really nice. They take up very little cupboard space and can even fit inside one another leaving even more room.

Pros:
1. Thick, Sturdy, Good Quality Materials
2. Take up very little space
3. Useful for low calorie diets

Cons:
1. Much smaller than they appear in pictures
2. Tiny size, limited capacity
3. Not practical for everyday use or normal diets
4. Did I mention they are tiny?

Top Rated PokeBall Spice & Herb Grinder by Expert Chef

Top Rated PokeBall Spice & Herb Grinder by Expert Chef

The Pokeball Spice & Herb Grinder comes in a small and sturdy package. The grinder is small enough to fit in the palm of my hand and it is relatively light weight, making it very easy to use.

The grinder consists of three parts.The base and lid are magnetic, while the center piece contains a screen and screws into the base.The lid and center piece contain the teeth used to grind up the spices and herbs. For the grinder to stay shut and work well all three parts of the grinder will only fit one way. The base has a small flat part that allows it to sit only one way on the counter or table.

I love the look and feel of this grinder, but the size and weight of it may limit  how much it can really do.

Pros:

  1. Design is nice, no flaws, and looks clean and shiny
  2. Smaller size makes it easier to manipulate
  3. Sharp, thick grinding teeth

Cons:

  1. Small size and shallow base will limit the amount of spice/herb that be ground up at any one time

Astronia Magnetic Locking System

Standard

Astronia Magnetic Locking System*

I was primarily interested in purchasing this product because our bengal cat has a tendency to open and close the cabinet doors in the kitchen and we needed a way to prevent our incredibly curious cat from getting into further mischief and/or possibly injuring himself.

Cat Opening Cabinet Doors

I was pleased to see that on the packaging it mentioned both babies and pets.

The package comes with 4 locks and a magnetic key to release the locking mechanism.

The installation instructions were not as easy to follow as I would have liked, but it did not take me too long to get it right. The locking mechanism itself is pretty clever and seems to work well. When the cabinet is shut it raises a tab which prevents the door from opening. The tab releases when the unlock key, a magnet, is put near it.

The true test comes in seeing if it prevents my cat from opening the cabinet doors and causing mischief. I am concerned that the adhesive may not stick well enough to the cabinet doors to withstand a strong pull, however the adhesive is the 3M brand which generally works well. I won’t be able to tell for certain how well this truly works until my cat attempts to open the cupboards, which he is of course not interested in doing at the time of the review. I will update this review when he does become interested again.

Pros:

  1. Packaging mentions pets
  2. Clever Locking/Unlocking Mechanism
  3. Uses 3M Brand Adhesive

Cons:

  1. Instructions could be easier to follow
  2. Not sure how well adhesive will work against a strong pull
