Why are we on this subject – because it’s time to clean! We’re all thinking Spring cleaning and Passover cleaning -- not glamorous, but necessary.
Of course and as usual, we are on a quest for the best cleaning supplies…and are currently focused on sponges. We have two suggestions:
Our friend Lynne recommended this to us, and then we saw it featured on Shark Tank when Lori Greiner invested thousands, So who could resist? Our investment was less than $5, Obviously, the country caught on too as the products have expanded to to a whole family of sponges and scrubbers.

Grated cheese is the finishing touch or the prime ingredient in many of our dairy dishes. Think Italian pastas, salads, pizza, soups and more. Of course, we can shake, shake, shake the cheese from the jar, or we can grind our own from a fresh block of Parmesan, Romano or any hard cheese we choose.
The Microplane Rotary cheese grater has become a must have in our home. Not only does it provide effortless fresh grated cheese at the turn of a handle, (chocolate and nuts too!), but ounce for ounce it is budget friendly, a money saver. It features a made in the USA razor sharp blade that effortlessly transforms hard cheeses like Parmesan, Asiago, Romano and many more into prepped grated ingredients and fine garnishes.
This tool is a perfect table topper and helper for the professional chef or at home cook.

The Vacu Vin 2.5 quart Instant Marinater is a unique tool that
marinates and tenderizes meat, fish, chicken, tofu and fresh vegetables.
It works in minutes by creating a vacuum which opens up the
pores and fibers of the foood allowing for a deep, quick flavoring. This process actually can also tenderize meat, so less costly cuts of meat can be used. Easy to use: Place the items you want to marinate into the bowl with your choice of marinade. Put the lid on and suction out the air with the pump, creating a vacuum inside the bowl to drive the marinade into the food.
We particularly liked the Vacu Vin Marinater when we made London broil, brisket and steaks.
- Made of durable polycarbonate
- Top-rack dishwasher safe
- 2 1/2 quart container - use to marinate and for storage
- Marinates and tenderizes in minutes
- Easy to use, saves time
- For meat, fish, poultry and vegetables

The Ultimate Grind
Since we spend so much time in the kitchen, for us it’s all about convenience and efficiency when cooking. Who would have ever thought that an electronic peppermill would become a beloved tool. Certainly, not us. However, after working with this mill for the past 3 months, we are hooked. it is easy and efficient to operate. We just add whole peppercorns, press a button and the pepper flows in a fine to coarse grind, depending on the setting we choose. The Cole & Mason’s sleek design makes it a lovely addition to the table as well.
Cole & Mason was founded in England in 1919. Because of continued innovation in design and performance was awarded CoolBrands status for 2015, an annual initiative to pay tribute to the UK’s coolest brands, an honor voted for by the public.
KosherEye has tested the Hampstead Electronic pepper mill. It has an integrated LED light, but the feature of quick one-handed operation at a touch of a button is what makes this mill so useful for us. The mill features a hardened carbon steel mechanism for pepper, and comes with a lifetime guarantee. The mechanism does not just crush peppercorns but strips them to release the maximum amount of flavor with each turn.
• Integrated LED light for precise seasoning
• Spring loaded mechanism; adjustable grind fine to coarse at base
• Precision grind mechanism; lifetime guarantee
• Easy one touch use button
• Each mill requires 6x AAA batteries (not included)
• Comes unfilled
