Old Factory Romance Candle Gift Set Review

I am a huge fan of candles. Everyone in my family loves candles and we burn different candles almost every day at dinner time. I like collecting different scented candles too. I recently reviewed Romance Candles set from Old Factory. Old Factory company launched many candle gift sets which comes with 3 candles each. I am sharing my opinions about Romance Candles set here.

Romance Candles comes in Rose Petals, Champagne and Dark Chocolate fragrances. These are soy candles which comes in 2 Oz size jars. These came in a small cardboard box .

Rose Petals -  I decided to try Rose Petals candle first. Whenever I cook, my living room gets filled with strong food smell. I burnt this candle and kept in living room during cooking. Even though this candle is really small, its fragrance is awesome. It filled my living room with nice fragrance of fresh roses. It is a perfect fit for Romance Candles set as it fills air with romantic fragrance.

Champagne - Next I tried Champagne, it filled my room with strong grapes fragrance. It was similar fragrance as when someone opens a bottle of champagne. I liked this fragrance moderately.

Dark Chocolate
- This candle gives strong chocolate smell, you would love it if you love chocolates. To be honest, when ever I burn this candle I start craving for chocolates.

I liked scents of Romance candles. As per Old Factory, these candles burn for 20 hours. I normally burn these candles for 30-40 minutes. I am satisfied with the quality of these candles. I found these candles bit expensive, I would love if company can launch these sets in bigger jar sizes say 5 Oz and with some discounted prices.

Old Factory Candles Set are available on Amazon and currently costs $25.00.

MeasuPro IRT20 Temperature Gun Non-Contact Infrared Thermometer with Laser Targeting Review

Merry Christmas and Happy Holiday wishes to my dear readers. Today I am writing about a fun product and I believe most of you would not have heard about this product before.

I got a MeasuPro Temperature Gun Non Contact Infrared thermometer for review purpose. It might sound like a complex device but it is really simple and fun tool. I played with this and tried it on all possible things in my house and really excited to share its feedback.
MeasuPro thermometer gun uses laser technology, when you press on the trigger button then you can direct laser light towards any object and this gun will measure the temperature instantly. It is non contact thermometer as you don't have to touch any object, it measures from distance. It comes with a battery. I was not able to open this tool for inserting battery, my husband helped me in that. Once the battery was setup, I couldn't resist and played with this device and measured temperature of almost every object in my house.

You can change temperature settings as ºC or ºF. If you are not setting then by default it measures in degrees ºC. I tested this by checking temperature inside refrigerator, it came between 3 ºC. Normal surfaces say laptop gave reading as 26 ºC. I also tried to measure my body temperature, but it didn't give accurate reading for body temperature. It is actually a temperature gun for measuring temperature of objects and gives accurate readings for objects say oven, fridge, food, any hot gadget etc.

Picture showing temperature of Dryer (it was on when I took readings)-
As per product description from company -
This non-contact infrared thermometer has been designed for a broad range of uses including automotive diagnostics, HVAC service, electrical troubleshooting, cooking, and food preparation. 

In a nutshell, I would say this product gives accurate readings, and this laser temperature gun avoids any direct contact with objects.

MeasuPro IRT20 Temperature Gun Thermometer is available on Amazon and currently costs $19.99.

Ozeri 4x3razor Digital Pocket 3D Pedometer Review

Pedometer definition from google search - "Pedometer is an instrument that gauges the approximate distance traveled on foot by registering the number of steps taken". You can find all sorts of colorful pedometers in market these days ranging from few dollars to hefty price.

To be honest, I don't hit gym daily or  I am not an athlete or a runner. I am a blogger who walks almost 3-4 times a week  or sometimes walk on treadmill for fitness and staying healthy. I recently tested a pedometer from Ozeri called 4x3razor Digital Pocket 3D Pedometer. I used this pedometer during my daily walks and now sharing my feedback.
This pedometer comes in a box with clip, strap, a small pin and a cell. This is really sleek and light in weight. I was happy that I got a black pedometer and not green or pink one. This pedometer has 3 buttons- Mode, Reset and Set. I started playing with these buttons and in some time my pedometer was setup. It has many options such as total steps, kcal, steps, daily, time, miles etc.

I tested this during my daily walks. When I walked on treadmill with different speeds , then it gave almost accurate readings. It also has a clip and a strap on it. You can use either as per your convenience.  I prefer the clip one, strap gives me feeling of wearing office tags.

It also has clock , I normally keep my cell phone at home during walks. So, this clock helps me in checking time.You can personalize settings of pedometer and if you need to change anything then you can easily reset it. It takes your height, weight and the steps you take in ten feet and gives accurate data in terms of burning calories.

In a nutshell, I liked the sleek design and found it to be mostly accurate. It is very light weight and small. Only initial setup takes some time, then it is good to go. If you want to keep an eye on your steps and calories burnt then this would be ideal gadget for you.

Ozeri 4x3razor Digital Pocket 3D Pedometer is available on Amazon and currently costs $28.95.

ZP1-20 8" Green Earth Frying Pan by Ozeri Review

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 burnt. Their bottom was so light that my food used to burn in those cheap pans and pots.

I recently got a chance to try Green Earth Pan from Ozeri. Here is my feedback after testing this pan-

This pan is having heavy bottom, its not like an ordinary pan which burns your food. You need to add very little amount of oil or butter for cooking, 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 scrubbed it hard and it gave little scratches.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 $21 . 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.

Ozeri's Curva Artisan Double Wall Glasses Review

Have you ever heard about double wall glasses? I recently got a chance to review stylish double wall glasses from Ozeri.I have tried some other products from Ozeri in past and always had very satisfying experience.

You must be thinking what is so special about these glasses. I also thought same before using these.These are very light in weight and very stylish. When I lifted these glasses in my hands, my first thought was are these made of plastic. These are borosilicate glasses and carved into double layer. This Curva Artisan glasses set comes with 4 glasses, each designed with different double wall pattern.

Another feature which makes this glass outstanding is it's unique feature to handle both hot and cold beverages. It's double wall design helps in keeping hot or cold beverages in internal glass and outside layer helps in keeping hands cool even with hottest drinks.

I personally tested these glasses by pouring hot milk straight from microwave. This glass showed no temperature differences from outside. I was really amazed by its double glass wall feature.Then I poured some cold beverages like juice from freeze and still glass showed no difference in temperature. If you are using these glasses for serving hot liquids say coffee, tea ; please ensure to tell your guest about the hot drink. Else, your guests can burn their tongue and mouth by hot drinks as they won't be able to sense the hotness by touching glasses.

In short, these glasses are small, light in weight, very stylish and have awesome utility. I really liked this concept and would recommend these glasses to everyone. Colored beverages look really good in these glasses as double wall and unique patterns give different appearance to beverages.

I couldn't find any thing which can be suggested for further improvement, this product is best. Just be careful when serving hot beverages in glasses especially in case of children or guests. Inform others when you are serving any hot drinks in these glasses, else they can burn themselves.

Ozeri's Curva Artisan Double Wall Glasses are available on Amazon and costs around $23.16 currently. These are bit expensive than normal regularly priced glasses which comes within $10, but I believe this is the price for quality.
