For the Kitchen – cspierdowis' Product Review Blog https://cspierdowis.com Thu, 25 Oct 2018 21:37:53 +0000 en-US hourly 1 https://wordpress.org/?v=4.9.8 83694181 E-Cloth Summer Sparkle Tryazon Party https://cspierdowis.com/e-cloth-summer-sparkle-tryazon-party/ https://cspierdowis.com/e-cloth-summer-sparkle-tryazon-party/#comments Mon, 25 Jun 2018 20:43:21 +0000 https://cspierdowis.com/?p=7853

E-Cloth aims to supply the most effective, healthiest and more environmentally friendly cleaning products at a good value to the consumer. Their chemical-free products use only water to remove dust, grease, oil, grime, dirt and bacteria.”

Ok, who here loves to clean. I know I do, lololol. Well, I love a clean home, and I really don’t mind cleaning. Cleaning is a game of Russian Roulette for me. I have asthma and insane, life threatening allergies. I have frequent anaphylactic reactions. One of my off the chart allergies is dust, and dust mites. Go figure, huh. So, I have to keep on top of cleaning in my home, or I really suffer the consequences. I also have issues with a lot of cleaners as well, both natural and chemical. I am always looking for a healthier way to clean. Both for myself, and my family. I was over the moon when I learned of the company E-Cloth. I had not heard of them before and was blessed with this opportunity to both try out their wonderful, wonderful products, and be able to share about them to others. I was sent a large variety of their cleaning products to try out, and I was sent goodies to give out as well. A win, win for everyone involved.
My package included:


My items to give away are:


So, maybe I shouldn’t have told people ahead of time that the party involved cleaning products, lol. I had a lot of people no show. Their loss, these products are pretty amazing! They loved the coupons, sample E-Cloths, and the contest!


These products are created so you can clean with just using water. No chemicals needed with their line of products. Wow!!!!!!!!!! Now you know why I had to see these for myself. This company was founded in 1995. Since they have been around for over 20 years, I had a lot of faith with them, going into this. Fortunately, I was not disappointed. My first impression upon discovering what was in the box, was sheer happiness. Everything appeared to be of great quality. Nothing was cheap or flimsy, at all. This company started in Europe, and per the company, became Europe’s #1 chemical-free cleaning company. They came to the US in 2008. Their product line includes anything from single cloths to value packs, and complete cleaning sets for kitchens, bathrooms, windows, floors, stainless steel, and electronics, and then some. They have something for everyone.


I know what you are thinking. That’s just surface cleaning. I need to disinfect. Well, I personally agree, I’m a clean freak. But, I do not agree that you need heavy chemicals that are bad for you and the environment, every time you clean. That’s if you are a regular cleaner, lol. People have cited actual harm that has come to their children and themselves, from cleaning agents. I think this company offers a great healthy alternative, that truly is needed.


Now, to further prove that these cloths clean well, here’s some scientific proof from the company:
“Fiber Density – Each e-cloth is fabricated to have as many as 3.1 million fiber strands per square inch of cloth. Nearly 500 million fiber strands are in each cloth. e-cloth’s filaments are so small and so strong; using just water they break up, lift, lock in, and clean deep down into the tiniest grooves and crevices. Dust, grease, oils, grime, dirt and bacteria are quickly and easily removed and locked away deep inside the fibers until the cloths are rinsed or washed. Surfaces are cleaned so effectively that there is nowhere left for bacteria to grow. Surfaces are left polished and totally smear and lint free. e-cloths rapidly absorb 7 times their weight in water. In addition, scientific research carried out by world renowned Silliker Group, has proven that e-cloths also remove over 99% of bacteria.”


The key to the cleaning cloths is to wet them thoroughly, then ring the water out. Then you can dry and polish with the polishing cloths. The dusting glove should be enough to dust the whole house, depending on the size and dust level, of course. To remove the dust from the glove, you will need to wash it, afterwards. The Kitchen pads are like any other scrubbing pad. You do not need to use soap though, with them. Have faith in the cloth; science, remember. The Pet Bowl Scrubber is just a scrubber as well, use it as such. I love the dog bone design though; so cute! I love that E-Cloth offers a water atomizer. It works great with their cloths. It is a fine atomized mist. Not overly heavy, which is what you don’t want with windows, mirrors, surfaces, etc.. It delivers just the right amount, which makes cleaning a breeze. These cloths can be thrown in the washer or rinsed thoroughly with hot water. They are pretty durable, well made, and easy to care for.

I have wood floors and tile through the majority of my home. So, I was very excited to try out their Deep Clean Mop. I love it! The handle is aluminum and comes in two parts, which is easy to put together, and take apart for storage. It extends from 34″ to 61″, which accommodates both different cleaning levels, and heights of those who are using it. It is very to maneuver, and use. I love it! The cloth has a 300 wash guarantee. One comes with it. Just add water to clean your hard surface floors. “True Chemical Free Cleaning – Proven to remove over 99% of all bacteria (including e-coli and listeria) from hard flooring surfaces with just water.” This is from their page about the mop. Yay! The mop head Velcro’s on. So, it’s easy to remove to wash, and reapply. You wet the cloth and wring it out, apply to the mop, then clean your flooring. So simple and quick, and I love that!!!!! You are safe to clean these flooring types with this mop: vinyl, bamboo, laminate, stone, ceramic, tile, hardwood, linoleum, and concrete.


After trying out their mop, I moved onto their stainless steel cleaning cloth, and window cleaning cloth. Two items that I thought might be harder to clean, since both surfaces are so finicky. Well, I was quickly proven wrong. The stainless in my kitchen was so clean and shiny after using the cloth. No lint, or streaks left behind, and no muscle put into it. I literally wiped with the damp cloth and dried with the polishing cloth. The windows were no different. No one really enjoys cleaning windows, and I hate using a ton of paper towels, which I always end up doing. I was over the moon happy to be able to clean all my glass surfaces in my dining room and foyer, without any paper towels. Besides my many windows in that room, I have a china hutch and glass front fireplace. The cloth system proved so easy, and insanely efficient in cleaning all of these surfaces. I cannot recommend this set enough, if you can only grab one set.
No one loves dusting, but I think you might love the dusting glove. With it you can clean those dust collectors so easily. The fibers really do cling onto the dust. My family will get to use that. I, unfortunately couldn’t handle the longer fibers with my fabric sensitivities. It is soft and it is perfect for higher end wood finishes and collectibles. You can clean without worry of damaging anything. My son came in 2nd at a National Woodworking Competition with a TV table build. This glove dusted it beautifully, and for once I didn’t have to worry about the finish on the table, lol. I always sweat over that when cleaning it. I did use the glove myself on this table, since it is quick to do. I was thrilled with it. It even went through my washer and dryer, very well.

All of the products have come through as advertised for me. I am both over joyed and relieved. I love knowing I will not be killing a tree every time I clean my windows and glass items. I normally go through quite a few paper towels. My stainless and floors are so much easier to take care of, and so on and so on. Hello, my name is Carol, and I am an E-Cloth convert.

Godfather’s Pacific Whiskey Decanter Set https://cspierdowis.com/godfathers-pacific-whiskey-decanter-set/ https://cspierdowis.com/godfathers-pacific-whiskey-decanter-set/#respond Thu, 24 May 2018 20:14:22 +0000 https://cspierdowis.com/?p=7833

Nothing spells bar, like having a Decanter set. I’ve seen them in everything from old Black and White Movies, to todays modern sitcoms and movies. It has been one item that has been on my long-term wish list. This set from Godfather is just gorgeous. I cannot find one thing that I do not love about it.


First off, the way this set arrives is 100% Gift Worthy! It is quite impressive before even opening it. I am not exaggerating either. The box is a large white box, with the words Godfather Quality Glassware, done in large and eloquent font. I thought that alone was gorgeous. To my surprise, when I opened the white box, my jaw dropped. There was another, very prestigious looking box, inside of the white box. Be careful pulling this out. The top has the magnetic closure. I ended up ripping the white box off of it, so I didn’t have to risk dropping anything. The interior box is large, black, and has the same inscription as the outer box. When you left the lid, you will see a layer of foam. Pick that up, and your decanter, and 4 glasses are visible. To see the topper, you actually need to remove a piece a foam. The foam is almost as thick as the box. The decanter and glass fit completely into the foam. The packaging is awesome. This is a company that truly loves their product. That is quite obvious. It’s so nice, I am now thinking of how I can reuse it. It is too nice to throw away, now that the decanter and glasses have found a home.


The decanter and glasses are made out of lead free ultra-clarity glass. Perfect and safe for everyday use. Unlike leaded Crystal, this set is safe and comes with no chemical concerns. I am a big fan. The Decanter is a 27oz Decanter. You can use it for any liquor of course. I put Rum in ours. Rum is a great liquor for summer time. Bourbon is another great choice. My husband is loving the new addition to our home. He immediately played bartender for me. Diet Cuba Libres are quite delicious, in my opinion. We decided to test out our new glasses and decanter by making them. I’ll tell you what. Our diet Cuba Libres tasted amazing in our new Godfather glasses!


To make a Diet Cuba Libre, just fill a glass with ice. Place an ounce of rum in it, and fill with diet Coke. We then placed a packet of True Lime into each glass. Let me tell you what, pure yumminess!


The glasses and the decanter are thick in stature. These pieces are not thin and overly delicate at all. They should last a life time. There is a delicate curvature to the sides of the glasses. This makes them very comfortable against the lips, and easy to drink from. These are not thin, like wine glasses. There was no getting these to sing. I absolutely love the design. The decanter has 4 thick ridges on the bottom portion, and the glasses have 3. The bases are heavy, so there are no worries of tipping them over. It’s an eloquent and timeless European design. Both feminine and masculine. It should please everyone in home or office.

I received a discount on this product. My opinions are honest and my own. I do not profit at all from any sales or referrals of this product, or True Lime.

Greater Technology’s GEYUEYA Home Stainless Steel, 2-Tier Dish Drying Rack https://cspierdowis.com/greater-technologys-geyueya-home-stainless-steel-2-tier-dish-drying-rack/ https://cspierdowis.com/greater-technologys-geyueya-home-stainless-steel-2-tier-dish-drying-rack/#comments Tue, 08 Aug 2017 22:16:25 +0000 https://cspierdowis.com/?p=7633

Greater Technology’s GEYUEYA Home Stainless Steel, 2-Tier Dish Drying Rack. It can also make for great kitchen storage, and organization. I love the modern look of this rack. It is two tiered, which seems to be all the rage nowadays. For people with less counter space, going up, really makes sense. You can dry more dishes, or store more dishes, in a much smaller area. It does arrive needing to be assembled, but I didn’t have to consult with my husband, so it’s not that hard, lol. I suggest having two pliers handy, so you can secure the hardware. The pan is included, to rest the rack on. It is a frosted/clear pan. I like the look, and it’s pretty thick and sturdy, too. The Product Dimensions are: 16-1/2″L x 10″W x 14-3/5″H. This rack is made out of 304 Stainless Steel; a great material in the kitchen. There are predrilled holes, and included hardware, in case you want to mount this on your wall. A great option for Tiny Homes, and House Boats.

The perfect tabletop Griddle/Crepe Maker from Epica. https://cspierdowis.com/the-perfect-tabletop-griddlecrepe-maker-from-epica/ https://cspierdowis.com/the-perfect-tabletop-griddlecrepe-maker-from-epica/#comments Wed, 07 Dec 2016 01:50:59 +0000 https://cspierdowis.com/?p=6904 crepe-maker-2

I was really excited about this. For one, I caught an incredible sale, lol. For two, I had never made crepes before, but have always wanted to. This crepe maker is virtually a tabletop griddle. So, you can cook a lot of other things on here. It is lightweight as well, so it is also highly portable, for travel, RVs, going over to a friend’s home for entertaining. It is insanely easy to operate as well. This product arrives with 1 griddle, 1 pamphlet, 1 wooden spatula, and 1 wooden batter spreader.

Since I had never made crepes before, I researched recipes online. There are a ton, for you novices. The key is to follow the directions perfectly. With my chosen recipe, each recipe called for exactly ¼ cup of batter. Before placing the batter on the griddle, I did a thin coating of olive oil. This allowed for no sticking of my crepe whatsoever. The crepe, however, would stick to my plastic spatula. I had never used one like the wood one included, but I can see how it wouldn’t stick to the wood. I also chose not to use the batter spreader. I decided one new thing at a time, lol. What I did do, was, after placing the batter on the griddle, I actually carefully picked up the griddle, and swirled it slowly, to get the batter to spread out. It worked perfectly like this. Then cook the crepe for 2 minutes on each side. Cook crepes on medium heat, as well. This griddle is a 1400watt griddle, according to the included pamphlet. It states 1200 on the online description. It has a turn number to adjust the heat setting. There is no off switch. You need to unplug it to turn it off, so remember that when prepping. Do that first, and then plug it in. It also states there are 5 different temp settings, but there are no set lines to delineate the settings. Just the min and max settings are noted. But, it’s pretty easy to figure out. I placed it in the middle for medium heat, and that worked perfectly for me. There are little rubber feet underneath the griddle, so it sits very well in place. It did not slide on me at all during use. I have had no issues with cooking on my griddle at all. It is a breeze to clean, as well. Overall, this whole experiment has been fun, and very positive. I am so glad I took the chance on this Epica Crepe Maker/Griddle.

Here is the link to the recipe I used off of AllRecipes: http://allrecipes.com/recipe/16383/basic-crepes/

Cooking the cast iron way with Ewei’s Homeware 10.5 inch Pre Seasoned Cast Iron Skillet Pan. https://cspierdowis.com/cooking-the-cast-iron-way-with-eweis-homeware-10-5-inch-pre-seasoned-cast-iron-skillet-pan/ https://cspierdowis.com/cooking-the-cast-iron-way-with-eweis-homeware-10-5-inch-pre-seasoned-cast-iron-skillet-pan/#comments Wed, 23 Nov 2016 03:35:34 +0000 https://cspierdowis.com/?p=6857 square-cast-iron-pan-8

I am the main cook in the home, and I cook almost everything from scratch. Cast iron cookware has been a part of our kitchens since childhood. If you haven’t experienced cast iron cooking, you are missing out. Not only is cast iron a highly durable material, that can last a lifetime, but it adds something to your food. Meats are great cooked on cast iron, and all foods get the added benefit of iron to them, from being cooked on it. Cast iron has great heat conduction. Once it heats up, boy is it heated up. You can greatly turn down the heat, while still maintaining great, even cooking. Don’t forget to use a pot holder though, with this pan. This cast iron pan by Eweis Homewares, measures out at 10.5″ (cooking surface), by 1.96″ deep, by 16.5″ to the end of the handle. This is an easy pan to start off with as well. It has already been pre-seasoned. They only used vegetable oil to preseason it. So, it’s ready to go right out of the box.

Care of a cast iron pan is pretty easy. People tend to over think it, really. The key is to wash and dry it after cooking on it. If I let it soak, I only do for a few minutes, and then it cleans easily. Then I try to dry it as much as possible. If you don’t want it out while it’s thoroughly drying, just place it in your oven to dry. While the pan is still a little warm, you can even wipe it down slightly with vegetable oil also. This will keep the pan from rusting. If you let your pan get damp, and surface rust appears, it does clean easily, and doesn’t affect your cooking. There are a lot of hints and tips online, as well.

Cast iron pans can be used stovetop, in the oven, and over a campfire. They are obviously very versatile to own and use. This pan is well made, and great to cook with. With its ridged cooking surface, it’s great to cook different meats on it. This pan even offers the spout, to make draining easier. Overall, it’s a great addition to our home and kitchen. I am really happy with it, personally.

A great food storage solution. – GoCranks’ Simple Flow – 3Piece Glass Canister Set. https://cspierdowis.com/a-great-food-storage-solution-gocranks-simple-flow-3piece-glass-canister-set/ https://cspierdowis.com/a-great-food-storage-solution-gocranks-simple-flow-3piece-glass-canister-set/#respond Wed, 26 Oct 2016 19:32:06 +0000 https://cspierdowis.com/?p=6386 glass-jars-1

My age group is from the Tupperware era. It was the boom of premade foods and plastic food storage. So, I grew up with plastic food containers in my home. Then the boom of BPA hit the news, and we have been slowly moving back to other material choices for food storage, to include glass. I personally love glass storage containers. Not only are they a great chemical free choice for food storage, but they are also normally very pretty to look at. They seem to make everything look better. I love this particular set of 3 jars from GoCrank. You get three jars of varied height. All with airtight seals, which is needed for safe food storage, and they are quite lovely to look at as well. What really makes this set stand out is the small permanent chalkboard labels on them. You provide your own chalk or liquid chalk. Just write on them as you wish, and it comes clean with some Windex and a paper towel. Now, the chalkboard part will probably wear over time, since it’s painted onto the glass, but I really like it. These jars have the traditional metal spring lock on them, so they cannot go into the microwave. These are for storage, not for cooking. The sizes are stated in liters on their web page so I converted them to ounces for you: 16.9oz, 25.4oz, and 74.4oz. So, they can hold quite a lot. I am really impressed with the taller container! Each container is approx.. 4 ¼” wide. Height wise, they are: 4 ¼”, 6”, and 10” tall. These are my own personal measurements. You can actually remove the tops, if needed, to really clean them. On the back of the bottle, you can see where the metal loops hook over the straight metal bar. Just squeeze them, and slide them off; so easy.

These jars are perfect to store candy, tea, coffee, sugar, beans, rice, cereal, flour, pasta, chocolate, animal treats, baked goods, and more. You do not have to store food in them either, but can store craft items, cotton balls, Q-tips, holiday decorations, in them as well. They make great storage containers. The glass is pretty thick. Thicker than I was expecting. The seals are silicone, and they do create an airtight seal. This really helps to keep bugs away from your goodies, as well as helps to keep your food fresh, for a longer period of time. Overall, these are well made and highly useful. And, they look good while doing it, lol. Enjoy!

There’s always a need. – Bolt Goods MINI Plastic Meal Prep Containers (10 Pack 12 Ounce). https://cspierdowis.com/theres-always-a-need-bolt-goods-mini-plastic-meal-prep-containers-10-pack-12-ounce/ https://cspierdowis.com/theres-always-a-need-bolt-goods-mini-plastic-meal-prep-containers-10-pack-12-ounce/#respond Wed, 05 Oct 2016 21:29:12 +0000 https://cspierdowis.com/?p=5815 12oz-containers-8

It’s great to have smaller containers on hand for leftovers. I always have extra left over from my meals I cook. I cook everything from scratch too, so I hate waste. These containers are 12oz containers, and you do indeed get 10 of them. They are BPA free and no phthalates or toxic additives, which is one less worry. I love how easily you can store 10 containers. They really stack together well. I have used containers like this in other sizes a lot. My husband and older son are on the road for work, all of the time. If they do not bring food from home, they just live on fast food, and that is not good. They love to take this type of containers. This size is great for one item, be it veggies, fruit, cheese slices for crackers, snacks, etc… They travel well, and work wonderfully in the microwave, too. The lid locks on really well. I was shocked when I first got containers like these. I thought they would be too thin to be any good, but they are pretty great. My guys prefer taking these containers over others. Since the lids lock on well, they don’t pop open on them if it slides off of their seat while driving. They can be used for portion control, easily, if you are on that type of diet. Since the tops lock on well, you can throw some snacks in one and throw it in your to go bag, when you are out with your little ones for the day, too. Overall, these are very convenient, highly usable and easy to clean. We are really happy with this new size. It’s very convenient for snacks for my guys.

Pretty in color. – JNG Directs’ PINK – 30 oz. Splash & Spill Resistant Sliding Closure Straw Friendly Replacement Lid. https://cspierdowis.com/pretty-in-color-jng-directs-pink-30-oz-splash-spill-resistant-sliding-closure-straw-friendly-replacement-lid/ https://cspierdowis.com/pretty-in-color-jng-directs-pink-30-oz-splash-spill-resistant-sliding-closure-straw-friendly-replacement-lid/#respond Thu, 22 Sep 2016 01:08:36 +0000 https://cspierdowis.com/?p=5598  

I have done many blogs on the 30oz Stainless Tumbler trend and competition. We, as a family, have even converted to them, and use them solely, for the most part. Now, we can add a splash of color to our original stainless tumblers, without having to, unnecessarily, ordering a new colored tumbler. Which, by the way, can be pricey. We can add a splash of color, and change out our cups, by just changing out the lid. I ordered their vibrant pink colored lid, but they do have it available in 7 colors in all. The colors available are all vibrant and deep, translucent colors: Purple, Light Purple, Pink, Green, Orange, Red, Blue. The lid has the sliding cover that completely covers up the drinking spout, for a splash free walk around town, or just to your vehicle. It holds really well too. If your cup dumps over, liquid will leak through the sliding port cover. It is not fully leak proof. There is a wide, and thick silicone ring that creates a really tight seal in the 30oz Yeti tumbler, as well as some of the competitors. I obviously only have a few competitors to test it on. I have one of the competitors that, unfortunately, did not make their opening dimension the same. So, this will not fit with a cup like that. This lid is made out of BPA free plastic. Which, really doesn’t matter, since your drink does not rest in it. It is dishwasher safe, although I only hand wash mine, like everything else. I love how well packaged it comes too. It is mailed in a regular box, not mail order shrink wrap packaging, lol. So, it is definitely a gift worthy item, and the perfect stocking stuffer with the holidays approaching. You can even order colors for the holidays, like orange for Halloween and Thanksgiving. Red or Green for Christmas, and on and on. I am so happy with this lids’ quality. I am comfortable recommending it.

Lol, was the first reaction I had to this mug. I find it absolutely hilarious, and I can picture so many people I know, using it too. I specifically got this mug for my oldest. He runs his own company, and can be quite stressed. This mug can give him a sense of amusement for sure. When it’s placed on your table, it looks like such a happy, sweet mug. When you tip it up, ba bammmm! I love it. The middle finger image is 3D. You can feel it and understand it, even if you were blind. So, everyone can enjoy this mug. The, Have A Nice Day, words are not in 3D, unfortunately. They are printed on nicely though. The words are also only printed on one side of the mug only. They state that this is a 14oz mug, but I measured the amount of fluid that can comfortably fit into the mug. You can fit 10oz of fluid in it, and still be able to walk to your table, desk, etc., with it. Any more than that, it will probably slosh over the rim. The rim is curved downward to make for a comfortable drinking experience. It feels comfortable on the lips, is what my mom likes to say. And, it is very comfortable to hold. You can comfortably fit your 4 fingers into the handle, if you have smaller hands. Otherwise, there is room for three, which isn’t as comfortable. This mug is also designed for right handers, due to the positioning of the Have A Nice Day statement and the finger direction under the mug. Our mug arrived in perfect condition. I had no discolorations, scratches, or chips in the mug. This is most definitely a gift worthy product. It comes nicely packaged, and will bring an instant smile, once they see the bottom, lol. It’s the perfect coworker gift for sure. We absolutely love it.

I received this mug, at a reduced cost, in exchange for an unbiased and honest review. – Have a Nice Day Coffee Mug, Funny Cup with Middle Finger on the Bottom 14 oz. – by Decodyne.

One for the ladies! – New Design Beverage Can & Bottle Cooler Insulator Stainless Steel Koozie. https://cspierdowis.com/one-for-the-ladies-new-design-beverage-can-bottle-cooler-insulator-stainless-steel-koozie/ https://cspierdowis.com/one-for-the-ladies-new-design-beverage-can-bottle-cooler-insulator-stainless-steel-koozie/#respond Sat, 10 Sep 2016 04:54:52 +0000 https://cspierdowis.com/?p=5457 pink-koozie-1

It’s time to be pretty in pink. Well, for me anyhow, lol. The competition has begun in the double walled construction, stainless steel beer koozies. This is number two for me to review. Yes, we even have the original Yeti one as well. My older son made sure of that. This one is not built up to the overall ruggedness of the Yeti, or even some of the competitors. It is however, made well, and functions well. The largest difference in construction and design is the “lid” of this koozie. It is completely made out of silicone. Even though it has threads built into it and the stainless itself, the lid just pushes on. The threads help keep it firmly in place. It stays put pretty well too though. A bottle can fit in here, but cans are really the forte of this holder. That is what I would stick with this product. The silicone is thick, and soft on the face. If you tip this into drink, and it rests on or hits your face, while drinking, this lid is soft and warm against the skin. Not hot from being outside, or cold, because it’s not made out of metal, like a lot of others.

This product is available in a total of 4 colors as well. So, you can get multiple, and everyone can be designated a color. They have the pink, black, navy blue, and red available. These are insulated, and will help to keep your drinks cold for a longer period than without. I can’t think of a hot can, lol. But, if you have heated coffee in a can, or bottle, this would help to keep it warmer, longer as well. You will not get that horrible can sweat anywhere, since this is a stainless insulated tumbler. They gave a cool tip on their ad page. They state to get the maximum coolness out of this koozie, to fill it with ice water prior to using it. Then let it sit for 5 – 10 minutes beforehand. That never would have occurred to me. It’s easier to just put ice in it, or to place it in the freezer. But then it is so cold to hold, lol. This is not made for the slim cans, but the regular old fashioned shaped soda and beer cans. Depending on the can that you have, it may be harder to shove the silicone top on, than with others. But, it won’t go anywhere once on. Overall, it’s not the best stainless can koozie out there, but it works, is comfortable on the face, and it’s priced well.
