Walmart Canada: Gordon Ramsay Toaster & Food Chopper Down To $20 Each

Walmart Canada: Gordon Ramsay Toaster & Food Chopper Down To $20 Each

For anyone who is a fan of Gordon Ramsay, boy have I got a deal for you! For a limited time, or perhaps while supplies last, you can get the Gordon Ramsay toaster and everyday four cup food chopper for just $20 each!

I have to admit that I was really quite excited to see these two deals, because Gordon Ramsay has always been one of my favourite chefs. In fact, I just recently bought his “Home Cooking: Everything You Need To Know To Make Fabulous Food” hardcover book now on sale for just $20.68 (reg. $32.99) on Amazon, but that’s a story for another time…

Because his recipes are so absolutely delicious, I have complete faith in his range of small appliances, especially since, let’s face it: for $20 a pop, that’s hardly anything for what you’re getting. The toaster features wide slots, LED buttons (reheat, bagel and cancel) along with non-skid pads and cord storage underneath. The food chopper, on the other hand, operates with a powerful 300W motor, has an oil drip cover and has two speeds (low or high), which is really all you need.

Here’s what one reviewer wrote about the food chopper:

I love it for one thing it actually chops and doesn’t puree everything. I also couldn’t believe how perfectly it chopped the garlic. I have had many food choppers and haven’t been happy with any of them but this one really fits the bill.

The best part: Free shipping is available for both of these products, which means that you don’t even have to leave your home to take advantage of these low prices, but hurry because they could sell out at any moment!

Chapters Canada: Mastering The Art Of French Cooking 50% Off

Posted by on April 21, 2013 at 6:00 PM

Chapters Canada: Mastering The Art Of French Cooking 50% Off

Chapters Canada has that iconic Julia Childs classic, the two-volume Mastering The Art of French Cooking, on sale for 50% off. Get it now for only $19 as a member, regularly $40. This is a really great price as just one of the volumes is usually over $20 at other Canadian retailers.

If you want to get serious about cooking, this set is a must-read. I am seriously considering getting one for myself, as this book teaches you about French cooking as well as helps you learn a lot about yourself as a regular cook.

With two volumes and over 750 pages, this set has a ton of information, including more than 100 instructive illustrations. Learn how to perfect Boeuf Bourguignon, Lobster Thermidor, or Vichyssoise. Not all the recipes are complicated, and Julia lends her hand to even the simplest of recipes like poached eggs or roast chicken.

Be aware that you will go through a lot of butter, but you know you’ll love what you make.

Reviews of this revolutionary set of books are amazing and people are generally pleased or astounded with the quality of the recipes, even many years after its initial release.

Shipping is free from Chapters on orders over $25.

Shop.ca: Gourmet Electric Tajine 40% Off (Now $119)

Posted by on April 19, 2013 at 7:00 PM

Shop.ca: Gourmet Electric Tajine 40% Off (Now $119)

Cooking exotic dishes in style is easy with the gourmet electric tajine, now on sale at Shop. ca for only $119, regularly $199.

This method of cooking originated in North Africa to simmer and slow cook tougher and cheaper cuts of meat. You add your favourite spices, which get infused into the meat. Moroccan cuisine is a favourite thing to cook in a tajine because the spices get so strong and flavour the meat the meat incredibly. Before you think this is too exotic for you, even Jamie Oliver has tajine recipes. What’s more, it is electric so it is completely foolproof, but if you’d like you can take it off the electric base and put it in the oven. This makes it two cooking tools in one.

Not just exotic dishes, you can also use this tajine for heating soups, stews, chili, fondue and hot beverages.  Black and red with a unique arty look, the tajine will look great right on your counter, almost as a focal piece.

Shipping is free at Shop.ca, and if this is your first order, you’ll get $25 off your spend over $100, so you’ll actually get this for only $94! You’ll also collect rewards for future purchases.

Amazon Canada: Save up to 50% on Summer Cookbooks

With BBQ season already here and all of the fresh fruit and veggies coming into season, it is the perfect time to look up some new summer recipes.  Amazon Canada has their summer cookbooks on sale up to 50% off the regular prices until 3rd June 2012.

There were a few titles that stood out to me that I am interested in taking a better look at:

They have a good variety of grilling books that would make great Father’s Day gifts for dad.  A lot of the books listed have a tab above the picture that says “Look Inside” and will give you a preview of what kind of recipes it has.  I like this feature because you can browse through it like you would in store to make sure it is something you want to purchase.

Kitchen Stuff Plus Coupon Code: Save Additional 10% on Henckels Products

Posted by on February 10, 2012 at 2:30 PM

Kitchen Stuff Plus Coupon Code: Save Additional 10% on Henckels Products

Right now until 19th February, Kitchen Stuff Plus has a coupon code out that will save you an additional 10% on Henckels items.  All Henkels items are already 25% off, so this is in addition to that, making the savings about 35%.

Here are the details for this deal:

  • Coupon Code: HNK10
  • Discount: Save an additional 10% on all Henckels items
  • Expiry: 19th February 2012

There was some fine print for this deal:

Limit of 2 pieces per item per customer applies.  Limit of one per customer per day.

As I started looking through the deals, I noticed that even though it said that Henckels items are 25% already, I found many that were discounted much more than that.  I found this flatware set on special for just $59.99 (regular price is $99.99).  That is a discount of 40% already.  Add in the extra 10% off with the coupon code and you will save a total of 50%!  I also found this Contur Clad Cookware Set with bonus pack on sale for just $299.99 (regular price is $649.99).  That is a saving of 54%.  Add in the additional 10% discount with the coupon code and you will save a total of 64% off the regular price.

Whether you are looking for yourself or a gift for someone else (kitchenware make great shower and wedding gifts as well) this is a good sale and coupon code to pair together to get the biggest bang for your buck.

Amazon Canada: Save 50% on KitchenAid Custom Stand Mixer Now $225 (reg. $450)

Amazon Canada: Save 50% on KitchenAid Custom Stand Mixer Now $225 (reg. $450)

Amazon Canada has a KitchenAid Custom Stand Mixer on sale right now at a price that rivals some of the great Boxing Day deals that were online.  This Mixer is on sale for just $225 (regular price is $450). That is 50% off the regular price! This mixer is on for a limited time only.

Here are some of the details for this product:

  • 325-watt heavy-duty motor
  • Metallic chrome in colour
  • Capacity: 4.5-Quart (4.26L)
  • 10-speed solid-state control
  • Tilt-head design allows clear access to the beater and bowl
  • Includes flat beater, dough hook, wire whip, and recipes

This KitchenAid custom stand mixer comes with some great reviews:

This mixer is fantastic, well made, easy to use, easy to clean. But that is what you expect from this product, and not why I gave it a 5 star rating. This mixer has been a game changer for me, I have gone from a person who would make bread once in a blue moon, now I make it ever week. Not only is it quick and easy to make bread, but it turns out great. It also makes quick work of cakes, you can now make an angel food cake from scratch and it is beyond easy. Makes quick work of meatloaf, garlic mashed potatoes. I do wish it came with a slightly better cookbook.

With a sale price like this I suspect that these mixers will be flying off the shelves.

Check out these prices:

We go through a new set of measuring spoons every year or two, because the writing comes off. We invested in quality stainless steel ones, however, the handles bend when tackling anything strong – like honey or frozen goods.

Chapters Canada: The Best of Chef at Home Essential Recipes for Today’s Kitchen $18.77 (Was $29.95)

Posted by on January 8, 2012 at 1:00 PM

Chapters Canada: The Best of Chef at Home Essential Recipes for Todays Kitchen $18.77 (Was $29.95)

I love this cooking show: Chef at Home, and the chef Michael Smith is brilliant. Right now you can get 34% off his cookbook, The Best of Chef at Home: Essential Recipes for Today’s Kitchen. Currently it is only $18.77, originally $29.95.

This book is brilliant, a cookbook that is easy to use and encourages variations – I love that! This book has 75 ratings with a perfect 5/5 stars overall.

I love this review:

This is a great cookbook, with so many recipes that you will actually use, more than your average book. For the longest time, I’d record all the Chef at Home episodes, and now I have all the favorites collected in this book. I would definitly recommend this book to any kind of cook, beginner to pro, as the ingredients arent impossible to find, the recipes are easy to follow, and the food turns out great. Most of all, what Ive found with Michael Smith is that you start to make the connections in the kitchen with flavours that go together and how the foods all connect, allowing you to really become a true cook. Love it!

It is really funny, I currently record all his Chef at Home rerun episodes on the Food Network because we got it for a couple months as a sample, and I am certainly taking advantage. I am going to be buying this book because after flipping through at in store at Chapters (and at full price) I saw so many recipes I would actually use!

The last show I watched of his he was talking about encrusting your french toast: once it is all egg/milk dipped – roll it in something! I did that yesterday for the hubby and I, and the picture above is of the hubby’s oatmeal encrusted french toast.
