Midea Makes Life in the Kitchen Simple #review #MBPHGG17 #giveaway

Thank you to Midea for providing me with product in exchange for my honest review. All thoughts shared are my own.

I love to cook and bake, even though I'm not that great at it.  I sometimes spend my Sunday afternoons preparing lunches and dinners for the upcoming week.  I do much better eating at home if I have a plan in action.  I have a tenancy to swing through somewhere on the way home from work if I don't have something ready to go when I get home.  I am a huge fan of products that make my time in the kitchen easier and quicker, so I was excited to hear about the Rice Cooker and Steamer and Cool Touch Kettle from Midea. I have a feeling these will become a part of our regular cooking routine. 

 I heat water in the microwave almost every morning.  Aiden either eats grits for breakfast or takes a Thermos for lunch that I need hot water for.  I have been using the Cool Touch Kettle to do this and it leaves my microwave free for me to use for breakfast heat ups.  The Cool Touch Kettle is so easy to use and it has my water boiling and ready to use within 2 minutes.  The best thing about it is the Cool Touch.  I do not have to worry about Aiden touching it and getting burned because it is not hot on the outside at all.  You would never know there was boiling water on the inside.  You just put the amount of water in that you need, attach the kettle into the heating base, plug it in and click the lever.  When the water is boiling it cuts off on it's own.  It's very easy to pour from and I don't have to worry about spilling hot water on myself.  I am sure this product will be used on a daily basis in my kitchen. I have not used the Rice Cooker and Steamer yet, but I know that it will get it's share of use also.  We usually eat rice pretty often and I love to steam veggies.  One of our favorites with dinner and something that we have almost weekly is broccoli.  I can not wait to use this steamer for this.  It looks very easy to use and it cooks rice quickly.  I love to have rice but sometimes I don't have the 15 minutes to wait for it to cook if I'm starting dinner when I get home from work.  It will be nice to use the Rice Cooker that will have my rice ready to eat quicker.  And if it's ready before the rest of the meal, I can just click it to the option to keep the rice warm.  This will be wonderful for us to use in our kitchen.  I especially love the size of this.  It's small and will fit right into one of my cabinets and I didn't have to clear anything out to make room for it.  I can't wait to use it!  These are great gift ideas for the person who likes to save time in the kitchen!
