Today’s video is a little different, rather than a review, I thought I’d share a review of a product I was kindly sent by the people over at StarBlue.
So, a few months back, I was contact by StarBlue about reviewing a product and initially I was sceptical as you can never be too sure who is legit and who isn’t nowadays, did some research and found they were a legit company and thought I’d give them a try.
I was asked which procur I want to try and thought the waffle bowl maker would be a good idea, as it looked interesting and was something I hadn’t worked with in the past. I sent over all my details and in just a couple of days, the waffle bowl maker was here… Sadly I had to wait until the end of a long shift erode I could use it, which felt like forever. Especially if you know me and how impatient I get, especially trying something new for the first time.
When the time came, I actually just tried the basic batter mix, to get an idea of what to expect. As expected, the first few were a little irregular and ugly, so after making a mother batch or two if the waffle bowl mixture, I finally found the balance. I did follow the instructions that came in the booklet and always find these things have a time frame either side of the instructions they have noted down but not so true this time, it’s pretty accurate and as always, you should follow the instructions in the booklet or specifications.
I like how simple and ideally sized the product is. It didn’t take up much room at all, perfect for those one tight spaces, especially if you only have a small working area, this won’t take up too much space. ideal for those who may also be serving these as part of a party, if you make a plain waffle how,like I did, you can get really creative with the filling . I played it safe by using ice cream, fruit and jam but this is where you could have a selection of fillings and toppings, perfect to suit different people and allow each and everybody to have their own little dessert without too much hassle.
The booklet that comes with the machine, is super helpful. It has all of the usual safety guidance, as well as instructions and recipes – all of which are perfect and work well. They are mostly sweet but they also have a selection of savoury recipes for you to try too. These waffle bowls are the perfect alternative to ice cream wafer bowls or any sort of bowl for a dessert. If you’re looking for something edible and fun, this is the thing too try – without a doubt. It’s fun and allows you to be creative with the way you make waffle based desserts, woking well with fussy eaters and goes down a tray with kids, they love the idea of an edible bowl.
All in all, I would recommend getting one of these waffle bowl makers as they are fun, cost effective and brings creativity to the table without much effort. It works really well, especially once heated up, they take no time at all – plus the machine itself isn’t large, so doesn’t take up much room at all, so ideal if you have minimal surface to work with! The only downside which isn’t even a downside, is that there is only two bowls that can be made at a time, otherwise this is something I would recommend for everybody to try, especially if you’re looking for something new and creative.
