Tyler Florence - October 2013

I recently jumped on the subscription box bandwagon earlier this year and now I've developed quite a collection! One of the companies I subscribe to is Fancy, which offers a total of eight subscription boxes: Verbal, P!nk, Ashton Kutcher, Tyler Florence, Fancy Food, Coco Rocha, Jennifer Love Hewitt & the original Fancy box.

I subscribe to five of these: Ashton Kutcher, Coco Rocha, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Tyler Florence & the original Fancy box subscription. This is my review of my first box from the Tyler Florence Fancy box subscription.


The Box: Tyler Florence Fancy Box

The Cost: $46.95 ($39 plus $7.95 for shipping)

The Products: Each box promises $80+ worth of products curated by Tyler Florence for Fancy

Coupon: Get 10% off your first box or any order with code FOLLOWUP10
 
Note: Fancy does not allow returns on boxes, but they now allow returns within 30 days for one item per box in exchange for either a $15 gift card or a random item.


Fox Run Vintage Double Timer - $20

Timing is crucial in the kitchen. How often do you have multiple conquests going on the stove at the same time? Perfectly time, roast, and bake your culinary endeavors all at once - with this double kitchen timer.

This vintage timer is adorable and it will come in handy around the holidays when we are cooking for a large number of people. Good thing my boyfriend is the chef around here because I wouldn't be able to hear this timer. I have to use my phone on vibrate for these purposes.


Wide Grater by Art and Cook - $12

This wide grater from Art and Cook  is perfect for adding a burst of flavor when cooking - whether you're piling some cheese onto a dish or zesting a lemon. It's ergonomic handle absorbs shock that comes from vigorous last-minute grating, too. 

I don't think I have a cheese grater, so this will definitely come in handy!


Tyler Florence Pewter Oven Mitt - $19

Protect your hands while cooking with this high quality and eco-friendly oven mitt. With holiday baking just around the corner, it will get a ton of mileage in your kitchen.

I love that this oven mitt is eco-friendly and we could always use another oven mitt. I never get why they are never sold in pairs though. Isn't it easier to have two? I've always wondered that.


Brown Sugar Pork Rub - $5

My West Coast Kitchen Essentials line refects my approach to cooking that combines culinary school technique with a passion for fresh, homey food. This rub is amazing on pork, ribs, and even sweet potato fries. It is the perfect balance of savory and sweet.

I don't typically like getting food related items in boxes, but I'm looking forward to trying this on sweet potato fries. I love sweet potato fries. :)


Waiter's Friend by Gentlemen's Hardware - $20

There's a reason this kind of corkscrew is called a waiter's friend. There is a blade to cut the foil on the tops of bottles, an integrated opener for beers, and a cork screw. It's a reliable and minimalist tool to keep in your kitchen or bring to a party. 

We don't need another beer/wine opener, but this is a nice quality one, so I have to decide if we want to keep it or gift it.


Doomed Crystal Skull Shot Glass - $10 (Prices vary depending on retailer)

Happy Halloween! Cheers to this spooky occasion. Pair your pork recipes with a great bourbon - my favorite for fall.

I love Halloween, but I'm not sure if I like this shot glass or not. I may put it in the swap pile or save it for next year.


California Cabernet Marinade - $7

Based on my favorite "to go" recipe, my California Cabernet Marinade brings rich red wine flavor to beef, pork, or lamb. Use it on your steak and you'll never turn back to regular steak sauce. 

I love steak, so I'm looking forward to using this as well!

Overall this box had a value of approximately $93. I cancelled this box after receiving it, but now I'm debating on signing back up. I don't want to miss any of the holiday items, but I'm also trying to save money. Decisions, decisions!
