Ozeri Ultra Thin Professional Digital Kitchen Food Scale — Midweek Review

Published by:

  
The Ozeri Ultra Thin kitchen scales are beyond simplistic. You turn the scales on, place an item on the scales, wait for it to start weighing, select your measurement, and BOOM! The jobs done! 

Ozeri, yet again, maintain fantastic build quality, and sleek look. Hands down, Ozeri do make some sexy products, but as the old saying goes: sex sells. And, if you look at their products, it is clear that Ozeri want to maintain this now and future products. This product looks good in any kitchen no matter what the decor it is. 

Within this product you will find three measurement options: pounds, kilograms, and ounces. Also, with a vibrant display and big numbers, this is very easy for anyone to read. 

For the price point of $17 (correct as of 14th November 2015) it is clear that you get a quality for a low price.

Ozeri Digital Bathroom Scale with Electro-Mechanical Weight Dial — Midweek Review

Published by:

 

The Ozeri digital bathroom scales bridge the gap between budget and professional scales. 

As you look at the device it is very sleek, lightweight, and stylish. The LCD is very bright and very clear to read. It also has a  very vibrant dial which can be clearly be seen in any situation. 

When it comes to standard consumer scales in the UK, we tend to use stones and pounds as the standard unit of measurement, and if that’s what you are after then you won’t be getting that with these scales. These scales are shipped as standard with US unit measurements, which is kilograms or pounds. If you want to work out your weight into stones and pounds just put the scales in pounds by pressing the button on the bottom, and then divide that by 14. 

Simplicity is the key to these scales. You just stand on them, and it starts to measure—no wait time whatsoever!

I would certainly recommend these scales, purely because the quality is fantastic, and they are the same price as poor quality ones from a national supermarket. Save time by buying these to get a quality set of scales.

The 12″ Earth Green Wok by Ozeri is a very versatile piece of kitchen equipment, it comes with a smooth ceramic Non-stick coating that is 100% PTFE and PFOA Free. Not only just food friendly, but earth friendly too!

When you look at other wok’s, you seem to find that the build quality is very poor and light, but with the Ozeri Green Earth Wok you won’t come across this issue. From start to finish Ozeri have took attention to detail when making this product, it may seem on the heavy side, but this gives you the reassurance that it wont get knocked over easily, unlike other Wok’s in this price range.

We did two cooking tests with the Ozeri Green Earth Wok; One was cooking fried eggs, and the other was cooking a stir fry. Pictures will be at the end, but spoiler alert, the food was made to perfection!

Would I recommend this product? Yes. This is the only Wok currently that I have found with perfect build quality, doesn’t contain any nasty chemicals, great value price, and makes food to perfection.

Nothing Beats Reading a Good Book Whilst Tucked Up in a Super Comfy Bed

Published by:

Looking for an inexpensive way to rejuvenate your body and mind each week? You might be surprised that the answer lies right in your bedroom. If you haven’t upgraded your mattress in some years, now might be the time to choose that super comfortable mattress that will give you the opportunity to enjoy some of the simpler things in life. Consider all these benefits to reading a good book while tucked up in your super comfy bed. P.S. If you need a good bed and mattress visit www.cutpricemattresses.co.uk, they are personal friends of mine and have some great bed and mattress deals to offer.

Relieving Pain and Discomfort

Giving your body a few extra hours each week tucked in your comfy bed reading a book will do far more than feed your mind. Allowing your muscles and joints to relax, you give the entire body the ability to rejuvenate and help you to deal with the pressures of the upcoming week. It can be very difficult to work at full capacity when your body aches every day. The reason your body is hurting is because it is telling you that it needs more time to recover. Reading a book in bed is the best way to heal from within and let the body take care of itself naturally.

Feeding Your Mind

With all the information being fed to us over the internet, to our mobile devices, on television and radio, it becomes a matter of information overload. Your brain can only take so much each week before it shuts down. Your headaches could be an indication that your mind has had enough and needs to unplug from the information highway. Curl up in your comfortable bed with a good book, and allow your body and mind to both drift off into a more restful and peaceful place. The best part about reading books is you can take off on a new adventure each week without ever having to leave your bed.

Time to Reward Yourself

Taking time to read in bed each week should be considered a reward, something to look forward to each day. The reason you must do this is because you can work yourself to exhaustion each week, and push the body to the point to a dangerous level. Reward yourself for all your hard work each week. What is the point of working hard if you can not reward yourself anyway? Make it as important as a business meeting you can not avoid. Set aside time every week and commit to being in bed to read that book.

You will notice you feel rejuvenated and refreshed, something you could develop into a habit very easily.

Moving to a New House & Looking to Buy A Mattress Before Unpacking!

Published by:

When my wife was told by her work that we needed to relocate, we were excited at first to be moving to the Birmingham area. We had visited there several times and really loved the location. This was going to be an exciting move for us and I wanted to surprise my wife with something for all her hard work the last few years. She was still working crazy hours each day, so I was reluctantly put in charge of tying up all the loose ends in our flat before the home removal company came by to start packing. My plan was to surprise her with a new mattress on our first night in our new home, but this surprise looked much easier on paper when I started to try and put my plan in motion.

Imagine trying to shop and buy a mattress with tons of boxes all over the place, and a to-do list that took up several pages. I decided I was going to try and streamline the moving process and then dedicate some time to researching and getting that new mattress to the house the day we moved. I was lucky to find a local moving company that not only was going to move our stuff in one day to the new house, they were going to help pack and unpack our belongings too. This left me with some free time to start my search for a new mattress. Our old mattress was about seven years old, and my husband would wake up each day with severe neck and back pain as a result. I am a pretty active sleeper, so during the night I tend to roll around, and this makes it hard for him to get a quality night’s sleep too.

The first thing I noticed when searching to buy a mattress online is the sheer volume of different websites that all claim to have the best prices, largest volume, and variety of manufacture brands. I wanted to buy a mattress that was not only comfortable for my husband, but for me as well. I stumbled onto www.cutpricemattresses.co.uk that in addition to selling mattresses, also had a free mattress buying guide. This was exactly what I needed to help me with my search considering the company was located near Birmingham and not right around the corner. I read that free mattress buying guide from cover to cover and I discovered that the gel mattresses help to eliminate pressure point pain by conforming to the shape of the body and equally distributing the weight.

That was exactly what my wife needed to get a better night sleep. Additionally, I learned from the gel mattress buying guide that gel mattresses wrap you in comfort, and keep you from rolling around during the night. This was a double win, and I knew I had found the perfect mattress for our new home. Now that I had determined the perfect mattress style for us to buy, I needed to coordinate with the company to see if it was possible for the mattress to be delivered on or around the last Friday of the month. After I found the right size mattress for our frame, I was amazed how quickly the order process was. I was already at the payment page in a few clicks, much faster and easier than I had initially imagined. I was able to choose my delivery date, and even spoke with a representative from the website about taking our old mattress during delivery.

The day of the move had quickly arrived, and I must say I was being pulled in every direction that day. I forgot all about the mattress delivery scheduled for that afternoon. I was dealing with estate agents, my solicitor, the movers, and all the details of getting the utilities put in our name. My wife was at work and asked me to just coordinate the movers that day, when all of a sudden the mattress guys showed up. Not only were they extremely professional, they were the most efficient crew I had seen. They asked me where to place the mattress, then asked about the old mattress, and were quickly on their way. My wife didn’t realize what I had done until she returned that evening!

Fast forward a few months, she still is raving about our new mattress. Seems I did a good job for once!
