Ya. I would have to admit to being a little unsupportive in this area of matrimony.
We had the baconwave.
We had that instant counter top meat defroster.
We had several varieties of chopping devices.
HAD being the key word.
I don’t want to reinforce my skepticism, but not all those things are still with us…
Lost (on purpose?).
I take just about any product claim with a supersized grain of salt.
Early in the summer a friend made wildly unbelievable claims about her water bottle – it keeps things COLD all day! When I saw the thermos at the store and saw the price tag, I just slowly backed away.
There is NO WAY a bottle to carry water is worth in excess of $15.
Another friend bought one….peer pressure of the mommy variety set in.
I bought four – one for each boy and one for myself:
So I did a test – I filled it with ice water at around 7:00 am. I then took it on a day trip where we were outside for 5 hours in 95+ degree temperatures and then left it in the car for awhile. I drank all the water. When I reached for it at 6 pm to clean out the container, it clinked.
Clinked from the ice cubes that were still intact inside.
Are you kidding me? Ice cubes intact after 11 hours?
I now use these thermoses to send fruit smoothies for school lunches with my boys. They report that they can even wait until AFTER school to drink the smoothies and they are still cold and yummy.
I am a believer…sign me up for a testimonial in the infomercial.
