I’m a working wife and a super busy mom. I’m all about saving money so today I would like to share you these best kitchen tools under $30.

1. Glamfields touch-free soap dispenser $29.99

I used to live in a narrow rental house. In fact, there is not much space for me to put more things. I have a lot of clothes but my wardrobe is no longer enough. Luckily, by working hard, I finally got a new house. I like my new house and I am happy to arrange it. Cooking is one of my hobbies, so the kitchen is my favourite place, and you can see my soap dispenser, it was by Glamfields, at the time I bought with a coupon it cuts down to $22, would buy it again assuming I was able to still get the same price. Compared to other options pricey, this unit only $29.99 seems works better. I like it, with infrared sensors, it is easy to remove the oil on my hands when cooking is busy. It was a pleasure for me to see such technology-friendly kitchen utensils in my kitchen. A healthy life should start from food, arrange the kitchen, refine every meal for themselves, you will find that you would have a good mood every day.

How does Glamfields automatic soap dispenser work?

Battery installation was easy enough. I verified the sensors worked before putting any soap in. All good there. I have one going into my kitchen, the other in the master bathroom. I use Method hand soap for the master bathroom. I get that it ships with some water inside, so Igo back to their store’s Q&A to see what this going on. It says that The water is pure water, which is the last process of the factory inspection, in order to ensure the high-quality soap distribution performance of the product. Over the last few days, the motor runs with a great performance, it drops like a stream. I put the setting on the back to “high”, this fits my need when my hand got dirty after finish garden work.

Chicken feet and papaya soup, slow-cooked abalone and sea cucumber over sautéed iceberg lettuce, braised chicken wings and steamed black cod with black bean sauce.

 

The Glamfields dispenser has a large container and has worked very well in my kids’ bathroom for over a year, and it does work just as well, and that has a more elegant aesthetic, these not only meet criteria but you will agree with it’s the one of best home helper in life.

2. Everyday Paper Plates only $19.99

If you just crawled out from under a rock, you put food on these paper disks, then you eat the food. You can throw the paper disk away when you are done and now you don’t have to do dishes. If you pair this with a disposable fork and cup you’ll be living the life of luxury and not needing to wash dishes ever.

The plates are durable, convenient, and the design is just enough, not too overbearing. Way better than styrofoam, these plates don’t burn up and stick to your food. Also, the price is great only $19.99, love my subscription.

Several reasons why I buy these:
1. The size is a good dinner plate size. Perfect for Summer BBQs
2. The plate is sturdy and does not fold under pressure.
3. The design is nice and does not compete with plated food. They have a faint weave pattern.
4. They microwave well & also stand up to hot food and the temperature does not seep through.
5. I have cut steak on these plates with no problems. Just be mindful of how hard you press the knife.

3. Cast Iron Skillet $14.90 

I use this pan for everything except eggs. I’ve had this one for quite a while now so I feel like I can give a longer-term review. The biggest thing I don’t like about this pan is that it didn’t feel like it came sufficiently pre-seasoned, so we looked up some videos and instructions and did it. Now it feels like the more we use the pan the better it gets. My husband and I both just Love this thing. The only thing it doesn’t seem to cook right is eggs. There seems to be a bit of a learning curve when it comes to casting iron, but once you figure it out, it’s very enjoyable to cook on and the food comes out delicious.

Tips on how we seasoned it: there are lots of opinions on which oil to use but we just went with plain old vegetable oil. We made sure the pan was clean, then covered it with a thin layer of oil. We put it in the oven as preheated it until 475 degrees. Once it came to temperature, we turned it off and just let the pan sit in there until it cooled. The goal is to “burn off” the oil, so bring it past the smoking point until it gets dry and hard on the pan. That’s what makes it coat well. We did this 3 or 4 times, but the more you use it the better nonstick surface you’ll have.

Tips: Don’t wash with soap, it’ll strip it. We purchased a chainmail scrubber that we love to use. Seems to help smooth it out a little too, but that might be in my head. When I clean it I only use the scrubber and hot water. The more I use the pan the easier it gets to clean.
When you finish cleaning it, don’t leave it wet. It’ll rust. We just put it back on the stove with the burner on until it’s dry. Easy.
Keep in mind that cast iron doesn’t exactly heat evenly, but it holds heat well. This just means that you have to sufficiently preheat the pan before you use to ensure even cooking. Overall I love this pan! It just gets better every time I use it.

I needed a new skillet and decided to go with another iron skillet and purchase this one from Amazon. It arrived in a couple of days and in perfect condition. As with all my cast iron, I treated it the same way out of the box. I scrubbed it with hot water and coarse kosher salt, rinsed, then set on a burner and turned the burner on low, then gradually increased the heat until fully dry. While the pan is hot, I take a little bit of Crisco Shortening (about a tablespoon) and drop it in the pan, using a pastry brush I spread the melted shortening over the full interior surface, then I take a paper towel and wipe out any excess (but not too dry you want it to have a slight sheen to it), then I rub the outside of the pan, including the handle, sides and bottom. *note* Do this every time you’ve used your cast iron cookware, and you will never be disappointed in its performance.
