Selection of artisan teas from Adagio Teas

Adagio Teas

Adagio Teas are hand-picked sourced from the origin, working directly with the farmers who produce them in their native countries. Coming straight from the source means Adagio Teas are brimming with far more nutrients. All of Adagio Teas are full leaf with no added sugar and all-natural flavours.

They also have a lovely herbal range for those preferring caffeine-free teas. Adagio Teas are Vegan and Gluten Free, all flavours in herbal teas are from essential oils and the traditional teas are pure leaves.

Teaware

Not only do Adagio Teas offer a fine selection of artisan teas, but they also have a fantastic range of Teaware. PersonaliTEA Porcelain Small Tea Cups, Teapots & Cups with Infusers. This range comes in multiple colours & I kindly sent out purple for my review.

PersonaliTEA Purple Porcelain Range

The elegant purple 600ml ceramic teapot has a large infuser basket for loose tea. The non-drip spout is fantastic for avoiding spills and it just looks gorgeous! To finish the set the 2 matching cups are 120ml and both the teapot and cups are dishwasher safe.

The purple porcelain cup and infuser with lid has a stainless steel infuser for loose tea leaves. The lid doubles as a coaster for the infuser when it is time to remove the tea leaves. This 350ml cup is 9cm in diameter and as with the rest of the purple porcelain, dishwasher safe.

Healthy Home-Cooking With Sensio Home Stainless Steel 3-Tier Steamer Review & Giveaway!

We’re enjoying healthy home-cooking with the Sensio Home stainless steel 3-tier steamer. This powerful 800W, 6.8-litre electric stainless steel steamer is £29.99 on Amazon. The Sensio Home 3-Tier Steamer offers a healthier, fresher way to steam meat, fish, rice and vegetables.

Sensio Home Steamer Review

How It Works

It works by continuously boiling water and releasing steam which thoroughly cooks the food in the baskets above. The best part is it cooks your food without the use of extra oils or fats. Steaming food retains vitamins and nutrients, a much healthier way to cook than frying or roasting.

Sesio home 3-tier steamer

You can place your food in any of the 3 containers how you like. Simply fill the unit using the handy indicator on the front to monitor the level and turn the power on. With a handy 60 minute mechanical timer you can cook your food easily. The stackable containers are easy to remove and clean and my favourite part, they are dishwasher safe!

Healthy Home-Cooking

You can cook so many different vegetables in the steamer along with chicken, fish, rice and eggs, perfect for quick healthy home-cooking. We had a 3-tier steamer a few years ago that was very well used until it finally died and we forgot to replace it. I absolutely love having a steamer again, this Sensio Home 3-Tier Steamer is brilliant. It takes no time at all to cook everything we need for a delicious home-cooked meal we can all eat.

Healthy home-cooking

I love the taste of steamed vegetables, you really can tell the difference. Rice comes out lovely and steamed chicken is absolutely amazing! I am fussy when it comes to eating meat, in all honesty, it has to be cooked just right. I like chicken but if the texture isn’t right it puts me off and I can’t eat it. With steamed chicken, it is juicy and packed full of flavour every time and with the timer, you can trust it is fully cooked.

Aerolatte Milk Frother Review

The Aerolatte Milk Frother comes with its own storage tube for £9.94 on Amazon. I received the Aerolatte Milk Frother to see what I thought about it myself. I love hot chocolate and it is most definitely the right season so I couldn’t wait to try it out.

Aerolatte Milk Frother

Aerolatte Milk Frother

The Aerolatte Milk Frother is a hand-held, battery-operated device (comes with batteries) is designed to produce perfect frothy milk in under 20 seconds. The Aerolatte Frother can be used to froth all types of milk, including soya, rice, almond, coconut, UHT and powdered (as well as single cream). The spiral whisking head and shaft are made from robust, food-approved, 18/8 stainless steel and comes with a 2 year guarantee. 

Emma from CookBakeEat recently did a round up of the 7 Best Milk Frothers For Coffee including the Aerolatte milk frother too. She listed all the pros and cons for each Milk Frother and compared them. I agree that the milk spills easily, the first time I used the Aerolatte milk frother it spilt everywhere. You do need to hold on tightly as the Aerolatte is rather powerful. If it heated the milk at the same time it would definitely be a bonus.  However it may not be as useful for whisking eggs, sauces, soups, custards and salad dressings if it heated too.

The Aerolatte is ideal in the kitchen as it can be used to froth all types of milk, perfect for anyone with allergies. I think that is definitely a huge advantage. I will definitely be using the Aerolatte regularly to froth the milk for hot chocolate. It can also be used for whisking other foods making it a handy gadget to have in the kitchen.

For under £10 I think the Aerolatte Milk Frother is reasonably priced and works well enough. I would definitely recommend holding the Aerolatte tightly when frothing milk as it is quite powerful. Overall I think this is a great Milk Frother and well worth the money.

Do you have a Milk Frother? Does the Aerolatte sound like something you would find useful too?
