A few weeks back I was raving about Tupperware. You can read about my experiences with my micro pressure cooker here. You guys know that when I find something that I love I like to share. My mama taught me that it is a good thing to share with others so today I want to share a bit more.
My sister used to sell Tupperware. This was quite a few years ago but I still have some of those pieces in my cupboards that she sold me. It was the time when home parties were all the rage and it was a great way for women (mostly) to have a night out and enjoy the fun of a home party.
I also vividly remember being disgusted at how dirty my mother in law’s Tupperware salt and pepper shakers were one time when Chris and I were in college and stopped by for a visit. If I remember correctly they were not home and I took the lids off and put them in soapy water to soak. Guess what? I forgot to finish the job and when they came home she found them soaking and I think it did nothing to ingratiate me to her. Thank goodness she got over that and we had a great relationship but whew—that was definitely a huge mistake on my part.
Because I was raving my friend and
dealer pusher consultant Mary asked me if there was a product I wanted to try as a product tester. I told her I had looked at the Micro Pro Grill but it was pretty pricey and I just can’t justify spending that amount of money . A couple weeks later guess what arrived on my doorstep?
Yep, a MicroPro Grill.
So of course I had to put it to the test. The first thing I made was Berry Crisp which turned out to be AMAZING! Notice the caps and exclamation point. I used that for Audrey.
You can use the Micro Pro Grill two ways -either as a casserole dish or as a grill. This recipe used the casserole feature and used frozen fruit.
The next thing I tried was grilled sandwiches or paninis. These were so easy and excellent. 3 minutes on one side, turn them and just about a minute on the second side.
I still needed to try the actual grill part to see how it did meat and my choice was a simple chicken breast which turned out really tender and juicy. I was honestly surprised at how well it cooked and kept the meat moist.
I told Mary I loved it but couldn’t spend the money on it and was sending it back. She told me it was a gift and I was overwhelmed with her generosity. Of course I had to write a post and thank her for it. It is just the perfect size for Chris and I and the grill feature is such a great thing to use when we don’t feel like firing up the outside grill .
Like with all Tupperware products it seems like there are a million recipes and YouTube videos that you can find to help you use the product even more. I even thought about bringing it to the beach with me this past week but decided that was ridiculous.
Gone are the days of Tupperware jello molds being the main stay of Tupperware sales. They really have improved their line and keep up with the needs of the busy household by creating more products that make cooking fun and easy.
To show my thanks to Mary I am having an online Tupperware party. If anyone is interested feel free to let me know and I will send you more info. Absolutely NO obligation. That is definitely not how I operate.
What item do you use to make your cooking more enjoyable and perhaps easier? I would love to read about it in the comments so remember to Comment for a Cause.
