Everyone has seen the Salad Cutter Bowl on the Facebook ads, right? I know I have! When I was offered the chance to review one by purchasing at a discounted rate, I took it. I like a good chopped salad. I like kitchen gadgets. This was a win/win!
The Salad Cutter Bowl has a “sink” around the bottom base that catches juice as you cut your salad so you don’t make a mess on the counter. There are two rotation wings added to both sides to enable easy rotating when chopping. It’s also made with BPA free materials so no need to worry about endangering your health. If you actually think about that sort of thing.
When using it, I found that you do have to press down hard with your knife when you’re cutting through the bowl, or you’ll have chunks. It also was harder for me to rotate the first time. I don’t know what I did wrong. I think I over thought it. In my review video on YouTube, I sliced some green leaf lettuce. When I was done, I had little ribbons of lettuce.
The Salad Cutter Bowl is $12.99 on Amazon. You can find it here: https://www.amazon.com/Cutter-Seconds-WEBSUN-Vegetable-Chopper/dp/B06ZZ2HQ4M/ref=sr_1_9?ie=UTF8&qid=1512697239&sr=8-9&keywords=SKINOSM+US, or you can use my links above. 😉
If you eat many salads, it really does make it easy to toss everything in this bowl and end up with a chopped salad in about a minute or two. I love my kitchen gadgets, and this is one I’ll be using. I actually use most of my gadgets. I really don’t offer to review any products that I wouldn’t use myself.
I received this VHR Memory Foam Seat Cushion at a discount in exchange for my review. It’s marketed as “Your Orthopedic Solution for Back Pain and Sciatica Relief.”
I do have some back pain after a car accident I was in back in September. The customer is recommended for people who spend a lot of time sitting whether it’s in a car, on a plane or at work in a chair. I sit in my office chair for most of the day. I do get up to move around thanks to my Fit Bit reminders; however, sitting so much can take a toll on the body.
The cushion is well made. The memory foam is super soft. The product description says that due to the porous structure, the foam takes on the anatomical shape of the body after heating up under your weight. Sounds cool.
It is comfortable, and it fits right on my chair. It was kind of weird at first. I felt like I was going to fall forward off of my chair. I’ve gotten used to it now. It’s definitely more comfortable that my office chair.
There’s also a little handle on the cover so you can easily carry it from place to place. If I were still commuting, I’d use it in the car. But, I’m not so in my office chair it will stay.

When you’re out there doing your thing, you don’t want to worry about your things inside your bag getting wet! That’s where the Vitchelo Waterproof Backpack comes in! This bag is nice size. It’s a great color that’s very versatile. The shoulder straps are adjustable and padded. There’s also a waist strap for that added security that you wont lose your bag.
We tested the bag in the bathtub because it’s been too cold in Texas to go to the lake. In my video review, I said it was unseasonably cold which was a total dork move. It is the season for cold; however, it’s Texas. So we’re not used to it.
We stuffed a towel in the bag and zipped it up. We submerged the bag in the tub. There was one little spot of water on the towel when we removed it. For that, I wouldn’t recommend total submersion; however, if that’s all your stuff is getting wet in total submersion, it’s still better protection than a regular backpack would provide if it got wet.
As a bonus, the bag also comes with an iphone pouch. Really, any kind of phone will fit in it. I didn’t know how to close it. I fiddled with it for awhile, and I couldn’t figure it out. In comes my 13 year old who figured it out! She tested it by putting one of her socks in it, sealing it up and then submerging it in the tub water. It stayed dry!
If you’re interested in reading more about this bag or picking one up for yourself or someone you know, you can find it here on Amazon: I received the #Vitchelo Waterproof Backpack in exchange for my review. We tested this bag in the tub since the weather’s been too crazy to go to the lake. Two thumbs up. I don’t recommend total submersion, although there was just a spot of water that had leaked onto our towel in total submersion. This would be great for anyone out on a boat or who may want their stuff protected if caught in the rain. You can find it here on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B073D4SJS1
I received the Silver Package (I think) for free in exchange for my review. It came with a Nice List Certificate (Pictured above), a personalized letter from Santa, an autographed Santa pic and an autographed Rudolph pic. I didn’t get a north pole stamp, and mine came in an envelope rather than a red box.
The letter is printed very nicely. I think I’m going to frame the letter and certificate for my son to really understand later on. He’s two so when I told him he got a letter from Santa, he was like “whatever.” He was more interested in the Rudolph pic!

I received this 3-in-1 Kitchen Knife Sharpener at a discount in exchange for my review. When given this opportunity, I took it because I’ve never owned a knife sharpener. I used to have some really nice Kitchen Aid knives that I fought for at Target a few years ago on Black Friday. I just have a few knives left. Where do knives go? They’re probably with all of my forks and spoons because those seem to disappear as well.
Anyway, I really liked the handle on the sharpener and the grippers on the bottom of the unit. It really made it easy to sharpen the knives because it doesn’t slip and slide around.
There are 3-stages. One is for knives that are already sharp, another for knives that need somewhat of a touchup, and there’s another stage for damaged and dull knives. It’s really easy to pull the knives through. You pull them through from root to tip 5-10 times. I did it 5 times, and I could really feel the way it had sharpened.
I mince vegetables because I cook quite a bit. It will make a huge difference having sharp knives. I just hope I don’t cut my fingers off lol.
This Kitchen Knife Sharpener costs $14.99 on Amazon. You can find it here: https://youtu.be/kA1Ibf4qfBc.

If you want to see my YouTube review, here it is. My videos are horizontal now which is cool. However, it looked much clear on my phone. When I uploaded it to YouTube, it got kinda blurry so I’m not sure how to keep the quality. I’m learning. Hopefully one day my videos wont be so amateur. 🙂
