Sterno S’mores Making Kit

My family is obsessed with roasting marshmallows and making s’mores. We are constantly roasting marshmallows and making s’mores during the summer using our fire pit in our back yard but it was always depressing when winter time came around because there was just never a great option for roasting the marshmallows. We had tried roasting them over candles before but it was always difficult and roasting one marshmallow took forever. This Sterno S’mores making kit is great because it can easily be used indoors and outdoors which makes making S’mores super easy all year long.

The kit comes with 1 red s’mores making tray, 2 roasting forks, a flame screen, and 1 can of Sterno s’mores heat. The tray has six small spaces to place your chocolate, graham crackers, and marshmallows and also has to s’mores making stations. The s’mores making stations are pretty handy for quickly and easily putting together you s’mores. Just start out by placing a graham cracker square in the space and then sit your chocolate on top of it. Then roast your marshmallow and when ready leave it on the roasting fork and sit it on your chocolate. Then press your other graham cracker square against the marshmallow and pull the roasting fork out. It not only makes it super easy but also makes it basically mess free.

Now for the heat all you do is take your can of Sterno s’mores heat and pop the metal top off using a screw driver or knife and place it in the center of the s’mores tray. Then use a lighter to carefully light the can of fuel which catches fire very quickly so be careful and if you have a long lighter they are definitely easier for lighting it. Then place the flame screen over top of the fuel can to cover the flame. The flame screen is great because it adds protection from the flame while still giving enough heat to quickly and easily roast the marshmallows and makes it safer and easier to let kids roast their own marshmallows. Also each can of fuel only lasts about 45 minutes but it does give plenty of time to roast a lot of marshmallows. You also can buy more s’mores heat cans on Amazon for more roasting time. This is definitely great for parties and the whole thing can be picked and moved even while the heat is going if needed.  A must have for s’mores lovers!

Ozeri 360 Oscillation Tower Fan

We live in Michigan and in the summer it is very hot but the worst part is actually the humidity which makes it not only feel hotter than it really is but it also makes you very sticky and sweaty. We are actually originally from Arizona and even though the temperature there is typically hotter than in Michigan it doesn’t feel as hot because it is a dry heat without all of the humidity. We have to use fans all throughout our house just to make it bearable.  Basically all of our fans are just cheap box fans which work pretty well but they are very basic. We had a couple of oscillating fans in the past and the one actually looked very similar to this one. We stopped buying oscillating fans because although it was nice that they could turn and the air could reach more of the room they were always so loud because of the clicking they made as they turned which made it very hard to hear the tv or sleep in the same room as the fan. Along with that they never seemed to blow as much air and cool it down like the box fans.
This oscillating fan has definitely changed my opinion on oscillating fans. This one can be set to oscillate and it is very quiet with no clicking as it rotates. I actually have a tendency of forgetting this fan is on unless it is blowing right on me because it is so quiet especially for an oscillating fan. Along with that this fan actually blows a lot more air than the similar oscillating fans I had in the past and actually feels just as nice as the box fans we typically use. My favorite part about this fan though is all of the cool features it has. I admit that chances are I won’t use most of the features that this fan but I really like having the options. This fan not only has three levels, low, medium, and high, but it can also be put on a timer to only run for a specific amount of time or it can be set to a temperature that way if it goes below the selected temperature it will shut off so it doesn’t get to cold for you. The coolest part though is that this fan oscillates 360 degrees around which I have never seen before with an oscillating fan. The ones we have seen always rotated either 90 degrees or 180 degrees. With this having a 360 degree rotation you really notice the circulation of the air which helps to keep the whole room cooled better.
This fan even comes with a remote and the battery for the remote so you can control the fan from across the room without getting up. I personally love using this fan in my bedroom because I can keep the remote on my nightstand and if I get cold and need to turn it off I can use the remote and not have to actually get out of bed. Plus when you aren’t using the remote there is a space on the back of the fan to store the remote so it doesn’t end up getting lost. This also has a small display screen on the front that tells you what settings you have it at and it shows the temperature of the room. There is a slight amount of assembly but it is just screwing the base on to the fan which takes no more than 5 minutes and can easily be done by just one person. I personally am really enjoying this fan!

NOVA Electric Lighter

We use lighters constantly around my house but had never used or even seen an electric lighter before this one. I will be honest, I really wasn’t sure about how well an electric lighter would work but I was very curious. This is a rechargeable lighter and comes with a usb cable so all you have to do is plug it in to a computer or a usb adapter for the wall or car to charge it up. After I got it charged up I had my sister use it to light her cigarette and we were both very surprised at how well it worked. It lit the cigarette just as quickly as a normal lighter and honestly it just looks super cool.

I actually got this for my mom and she is totally in love with it and actually has people constantly stealing it at work to use it. Her favorite part is that when she used to light a cigarette in the car she would have to roll the window up first or the wind would just put the flame on the lighter out. This electric lighter is windproof so she can leave the window down and light a cigarette with no problem and is upper happy about that. She is even considering getting some of these for friends and family next time she needs gifts for them

When it comes to lighting something whatever you are lighting does have to be put into the electrical current and the space is pretty small. Even with cigarettes they fit enough to light them but they don’t fully fit in so it does kind of limit what you can light with this lighter. Also when you push the button and light this lighter there is a small almost static like sound and it really isn’t very loud to me but my mom did have one person at work that it really bothered and one of our dogs is terrified of the sound but it personally doesn’t bother me, my mom, or my sister at all so it really just depends on the person. This is definitely a super cool and fun lighter that is worth checking out.

KickFire Kadavu® Premium Blue Delta Kite

I always enjoy flying kites with my niece and nephews when it gets warmer out. We have always just bought the cheap plastic $1 kites from the dollar store since my niece and nephews are still pretty young and are not the best kite flyers. They actually live right next to the school and have ended up letting go of their kites and the kites ended up stuck on the schools roof. Basically we have gone through a lot of kites. I have never thought it would be worth it to pay more money for a better quality kite until getting this kite. This is seriously the best and coolest kite we have ever owned.

First off this is actually a pretty large kite and the kite has a super long tail. The kite is made of nylon fabric which actually makes it a lot more durable and it would take a lot more to tare this kite than others I have had. We also really love that this kite has nice bright colors which makes it very easy to see up in the sky. This kite isn’t just cool looking though it is also super easy to fly even for kids. My niece and nephew are 6 and 8 and they had no issues flying this and even with only a light wind they were able to just barely pull this to get it up in the air all by themselves. With the cheap kites they have had to run a good distance and still normally couldn’t get them up in the air with out help. Also even once they had it in the air it was super easy to control and keep up in the sky with little effort.

I also want to mention that this comes with a little bag with a handle that way you can easily fold the kite up and store in the bag when you aren’t using it. We have had a couple kites end up ruined just when trying to store them so the bag is very helpful. The kite is also super easy to assemble and take apart as all you have to do is tie the string and handle to the kite and pop the one bar in place on the top of the kite which is super easy and takes literally 2 seconds. Definitely an awesome kite especially with summer coming up.
If you are interested in purchasing this kite for yourself they are available on Amazon.

First Post!

Hi! My name is Donna. I wanted to start this blog out by telling you a little bit about me. I started as a product reviewer on amazon in April of 2015. I was given free and discounted products from Amazon sellers in exchange for my honest and unbiased review. I got started after a friend of mine told me about reviewing and thought it would be a great way to try out cool products and keep what I need or wanted and then give the rest to family and friends who could use it. When I first started out I will admit it was challenging trying to figure out where to find the products to review and how to write a good review. My reviews started out very short and then once I got going I learned the types of things that a good reviewer include in their reviews to make them detailed and helpful and everything became a lot easier. Suddenly I started hearing of a lot of reviewers waking up to their reviews wiped by Amazon and no longer able to write reviews. That is what led to me starting this blog. It gives me a new place to write my reviews and help others find great products. This way if Amazon ever takes my reviews away I will have a back up plan.

Although I am mostly planning to use this for sharing my reviews I am hoping to post other stuff such as great deals that I find in stores and online and hopefully even some giveaways at some point down the road. I also get a lot of comments on my Amazon reviews wanting to know where I get my free and discounted products to review and I am hoping to answer that hear on my blog by creating a list of great sites that I use that way others can get their start in the reviewers world easier than I did. If you ever have any questions or would like to see something special on the blog feel free to comment and let me know and I will see what I can do.

 

Now back to telling you a little bit about me. I am 24 years old and live in Michigan with my mom. My family means everything to me especially my mom, my niece, and my 5 dogs. I also have 3 sisters and 2 nephews that I am close too and see all the time. As far as my dogs go I have one large mixed breed and 4 Chihuahua mixes. My dogs are definitely a part of my family and I would do anything for them. I am especially close to our youngest dog who is 3 and only weighs about 2lbs full grown. She was born with health issues and I spend basically every minute of everyday with her as she has separation issues and will scream and dehydrate herself if we leave her alone. Some people have said that she is so adorable but that they couldn’t handle the time it takes to take care of her but to me she is worth every single second of my time. Her name is Brave which is why I chose to name this blog Brave Reviews. Well that is all for now. Let me know if you have any suggestions on what you would like to see posted and in the mean time I will get started on my reviews and deals.
Thanks for reading!
