Topaz UNISEX 5026AMRBK Classic Dress Watch Review


I read a beautiful quote today and sharing this on my blog.

"A man with one watch knows what time it is; a man with two watches is never quite sure" - Lee Segall

Watch is a style statement and some people collect number of watches . I've seen people who think why do we need watch when we have mobile , on the other hand, I've also seen different set of people who rush to the store to buy latest launched watches from world class brands.  Speaking of myself, I think I don't belong to any of the category mentioned , I'm not so obsessed with brands and I wear watch occasionally like going out for shopping or dinner or to a friend's house . If I have to chose a watch then personally I will opt for reasonable, comfortable , light weight , durable and decent watch.

I recently got a chance to review Topaz UNISEX 5026AMRBK Classic Dress Watch. I didn't know that Topaz also deals in watches and was bit hesitant if I would like the watch. When I looked the pictures of this watch on some websites like Amazon then this looked really decent. I decided to give it a try.
 It was shipped from Amazon on time. It came in a plastic cover and not in some fancy box. I just pulled the plastic kind of lock from the button and watch started running. This watch fits my criteria and I will explain it how-

  • Simple and decent watch. Something not to show off or you can flaunt in the rat race of brands.
  • Very light weight. 
  • Comfortable
  • Easy to read. Round dial which shows numbers clearly. Not a watch with some complex design like train tracks ( seriously I have seen some very complex watches and I don't know how people watch time in such watches)
This is a unisex watch , my husband liked this watch and said it is a decent watch. It fits well on his wrist. This has a genuine leather strap in black color and white egg shell dial, it is neutral and goes with all my dresses. It fits on my wrist well and I have almost normal wrist size. This is water resistant as per company but I never reviewed this feature.

In a nutshell, this is a decent and nice watch and perfect for every day usage. If you want to buy Topaz UNISEX 5026AMRBK Classic Dress Watch Review, this is available on Amazon and currently costs $29.95

Green Earth Frying Pan by Ozeri Review

You should never choose wrong cookware for your kitchen. Trust me, right cookware not only saves time but also makes your food taste better. I cook daily at home and know the importance of right cookware in kitchen. I am cooking since last 4-5 years, and can easily differentiate different quality products. Initially when I started cooking, I had no idea about quality of cooking ware. I remember that first set which I bought was only for $20.00 and it came up with 4-5 pan and pots with lids. That time I thought that I cracked a deal. But in just few months of time, they all got burnt and black material used to come from the pans. Their bottom was so light that my food used to burn in those cheap pans and pots.


When I tried Green Earth Frying pan from Ozeri, I could easily feel the difference.This pan is having heavy bottom, it is not like an ordinary pan which burns your food. You need to add very little amount of oil or butter for cooking or no oil at all , its non stick layer is quite good and food rarely sticks on it. 

Its size is good for making pan cakes. I have used this frying pan for numerous occasions for frying vegetables, pan cakes, making gravies and much more.



It is quite easy to clean, but make sure that you are not using any hard scrub. I have used this pan at low to high heat.This pan comes in 10" and 12" inch size as well, I would recommend 10" or 12" inch size. Then you can cook more quantity in single go. 8" is also good if you are cooking for 1 or 2. 

Ozeri's 8" Green Earth Pan is available on Amazon and currently costs around $24.65 . It may sound to be bit expensive but it is a  long lasting pan. Even if you use it daily then its non stick layer won't go away.

You can check other Ozeri Products at their website or can connect them on Facebook here.

WonderVeg Vegetable Spiralizer Tri Blade Slicer Review


I love trying new products especially kitchen gadgets. I got a chance to review a slicer named WonderVeg Vegetable Spiralizer Tri Blade Slicer recently.

(Image Credits: WonderVeg)

This spiral slicer set came with cleaning brush, replacement parts , blades and a mini recipe book . It can be compared with mini sewing machine in terms of size and looks. It is based on a very simple concept of slicing vegetables by pressing veggies between handle and slicer body and then rotating the handle. 
(Image credits: WonderVeg)

This slicer comes with 3 different blades, each serves different purpose. I used this for making zucchini noodles and potato chips. If you have not heard about Zucchini noodles then this is some healthy substitute of pasta noodles where you can replace pasta with zucchini. I also add carrot spirals in the noodles to make it healthy. It is quite easy to make these healthy noodles using this WonderVeg Spiralizer. I took 2 zucchini and 1 carrot and quickly sliced using this spiralizer, then prepared these like noodles/spaghetti replacing pasta with these spirals. Another blade can be used to make thick potato ribbons. I baked these ribbons to get some healthy potato chips.

This takes almost same space like a Keurig coffee machine , I placed it in a corner on my kitchen counter top and quickly use it while making lunch or dinner. It is quite easy to use.As per company, this is made of BPA free plastic.

I found this product quite interesting and useful. If you love veggies and healthy food, then you must give it a try. WonderVeg Spiralizer is available on Amazon and currently costs $20.32

Maxx Elite "Gentle Warm" Bottle Warmer & Sterilizer Review


Sometimes I wonder how technology has changed our lives. These days we have devices and gadgets for everything we can think of. One such device which has eased my life is Gentle Warm Bottle Warmer and Sterilizer from Maxx Elite.

I've been using this Maxx Elite Smart Bottle Warmer since 2-3 weeks. I really liked its simple touch operation. It has 3 temperature settings , 'Gentle warm' for warming  milk at 104F, 'Express warm' for heating baby food at 158F and 'Sterilize' for sterilizing bottles at 212F.  This came with a bowl, covering lid and insulation frame.

It is quite easy to use and can be used in 3 modes i.e. for warming milk, heating food and sterilizing bottles.
Just fill it with water, put bottle or food in the given tray and press Gentle or Express Warm. I use it to sterilize baby bottles , sippy cups etc. It has a green indicator light which turns when temperature reaches 104 F or 40C. You can easily switch  it off by touching the off button.

It is very small in size, don't take much counter top space. I just keep it in a corner in kitchen and just press easy touch buttons whenever it is used. I also keep it in room during night for easy and quick warming of milk bottles.

Before receiving it I used to sterilize baby bottles in open container on gas stove .This has really eased my life. This is bit expensive but has great utility. This is available on Amazon and currently costs $46.99

Deluxe Cook V-Blade Mandoline Slicer Review

I cook a lot at home. I mostly prepare veggies and do a lot of chopping, cutting and slicing.  I have a mini chopper for chopping onions and making tomato puree. I love small kitchen gadgets and always in search of useful products which can make my life easy.



I received a Deluxe Cook V-Blade Mandoline Slicer for review purpose. This slicer has 4 attachments with different type of blades and a finger guard which you can hold while slicing and dicing vegetables.


This slicer is moderately easy to use. 2 attachments are for shredding and 2 are for slicing. There is a button on the slicer, once the button is pressed the blade attachment can be removed easily and then you can put the blade which is needed . Blades for slicing are not having sharp pins and I found these 2 blades easy to fit in the slicer. 


This mandoline slicer is not having any stand, but it is designed that you can easily keep it on chopping board and slice / dice vegetables. You can also hold it like cheese grater. It comes along with a cover or finger guard which has nails kind of pins. This is used to hold any vegetable and then slice the vegetables on the slicer. 
I tried this slicer for slicing onions, cucumber , zucchini and tomatoes. This worked pretty well . Once the perfect attachment was fit, I could slice 2-3 zucchinis in few minutes by cutting zucchini in halves.  I liked the thin slices of onions and cucumber. 

It can be washed in dishwasher but I just placed it under running water . Attachments and slicer both gets cleaned easily. Just ensure that you are not rubbing finger against attachment or slicer blades. 

If something can be changed in this slicer, I would suggest making shredding blades more safer like the slicing blades. Shredding blades have sharp pins and when you have to change these in the slicer it can hurt fingers. 

I am trying to make maximum use of this slicer. Almost using it every day to slice vegetables for making salads and other veggies. I had few initial hiccups where I rubbed my finger by mistake against blades, but now I can easily change attachments and cut vegetables in minutes. I am finding this little kitchen gadget easy and useful in my kitchen. 

If you want to try Deluxe Cook V-Blade Mandoline Slicer , this is available on Amazon and currently costs $27.99
