California Man Launches Kickstarter to Promote Kitchen Safety

California Man Launches Kickstarter to Promote Kitchen Safety Invents Oven Mitt That Allows Dexterity and Promotes Safety

Santa Clarita, CA, September 17, 2014, Nearly 350,000 people annually are victims of scalding or burns from accidents that occur while cooking, either on the grill or in the kitchen. Most involve saucepans or tea kettles. Many could be eliminated by using a proper padding device on the hands when touching pans that have been heated. Many hot pads just aren’t made for high temperatures or kitchen dexterity when cooking. This can create more safety issues and actually create harm where they were supposed to bring assurance. One California man, Marcelo Garcia, has created a different kind of oven mitt built for safety and dexterity and has launched a Kickstarter campaign to bring this kitchen must have to the cooking masses that work well for anyone working in the kitchen, from beginner to Iron Chef.

Ulta-Mitt, as it is called, is a 3-Finger mitt constructed from neoprene that is waterproof and heat resistant making it great for indoor or outdoor use. The 3-Finger design allows for more dexterity than an ordinary oven mitt, offering both style and function with users able to have the ability to grab a lid from a hot pan, pick up a hot coffee cup from the microwave or work with small gadgets required while cooking in the kitchen. The neoprene material is also non-slip for a better grip.

This must have kitchen item also comes with a matching neoprene hot pad, which can double as a jar opener for those hard to open lids.

Perks for sponsors include sets of the gloves at manufacturer’s discounts and ahead of their proposed scheduled appearance in stores appearance and for some lucky investors, a complete Healthy eating wooden handle wok cooking set. For those that can’t give, the inventor hopes they will share this story to make the campaign viral through social media.

Laundry 365 Expand to Supply Warewasher’s Of A Fagor Design

Laundry 365 were set up to supply all sorts of commercial laundry equipment by a group of dedicated service people with years of experience in the trade with the added advantage that the service element was supplied 365 days a year. The company has been very successful in its approach and have realised that they have years of experience supplying not only the commercial laundry business but also the service industry as a whole, where that service industry supplies services to people in bulk. To this end Laundry 365 now supply commercial warewashers, which can clean bulk loads of crockery and glasses efficiently and with a high quality finish.

Laundry 365 is pleased to promote the Fagor range of warewashers and in particular the Fagor AD12BBT warewasher which is a pass-through warewasher meaning that the crockery or glasses are placed into a basket ready for washing. The baskets are then placed in the Fagor AD12BBT warewasher at bench height and are removed at bench height when finished. This means that there is no bending and lifting other than a straight transfer of the baskets and their loaded contents into the warewasher. This reduces any lifting problems that are caused by under counter warewashers and it also speeds up the process. Laundry 365 notes that the Fagor AD12BBT warewasher will efficiently clean some 1,200 dishes per hour ready for re-use. This reduces the amount of crockery and or glasses that are required for the commercial operation of the unit and returns those used back into operation in a very short time. This is ideal for bulk crockery or glass usage operations such as large restaurants, canteens, schools and hospitals and also cruise ship operations as well as large industrial type food processors.

The Fagor AD12BBT warewasher is a very simple piece of equipment to use being limited to just three working programmes, which are quite sufficient for virtually any normal operation. The typical working programmes take just 90 seconds or 180 seconds, which takes care of both the fast speed operation for the normal items and a slower more determined cycle which deals with the more difficult cleaning problems. The water temperature is typically 60 degrees C with a rinse cycle temperature of 90 degrees C, which will leave the dishes ready to dry quickly and efficiently. The wares cleaned are ready for putting away into the storage cupboards or can be returned straight into the system for instant reuse if that is required.

Laundry 365 is pleased to note that the unit is made of stainless steel and that all Fagor units come with a great reputation of strength and reliability from many years extensive usage in the industry. The Fagor AD12BBT warewasher has low running costs and is a real workhorse in the kitchen or factory and will delight the user. Laundry 365 will be delighted to advise anybody on the best piece of equipment for their own operation as this comes as part and parcel of the sale.

The National Trust joins fight to save the great British pud

The National Trust has announced it is backing a Government Minister’s call to save the great British pudding.

After being appointed in a recent cabinet reshuffle, Environment Secretary Owen Paterson urged people to be patriotic with their puddings, choosing traditional British recipes over foreign imports. In an interview with Farmers Weekly, Paterson said: “There is a huge dessert deficit in this country. We have a huge opportunity to replace imported desserts with desserts made here.”

He encouraged diners to swap desserts such as crème brulee and panna cotta, which use imported dairy products, for traditional favourites like apple crumble, treacle tart and spotted dick.

The news comes as the National Trust prepares to launch its autumn pudding campaign, with free puddings throughout the month of October with every lunchtime meal purchased in its selected cafes and restaurants.

The flavour of the month will be great British puddings, all made from seasonal ingredients – a reminder to visitors at National Trust places just how good a British pud can be.

A recent National Trust online poll of people’s favourite autumn puddings found that dishes using seasonal ingredients remained the popular first choice, despite the modern trend of year-round food availability using foreign imports*.

Clive Goudercourt, Development Chef for the National Trust, said: “We pride ourselves on baking our own food using the best of British ingredients, many grown on National Trust estates and farms.

“We hope our delicious, home-cooked puddings will inspire people to choose traditional recipes and celebrate Britain’s best food across the seasons.”

Clive added: “British, seasonal food is tastier, fresher and more nutritious. It is better value, better for the environment and better for your wallet.”

Delicious examples of fresh autumn food can be enjoyed for free when customers spend over £5.75 on a main lunchtime meal at over 100 National Trust locations across England, Wales and Northern Ireland.

To find out more about this offer, and to download free recipes to help save the Great British pud, visit www.nationaltrust.org.uk/pudding and download a voucher (offer is valid from Monday 1st October until Wednesday 31st October 2012).

There’s also the chance to walk off those autumn puddings on a Great British Walk with the National Trust. Visit www.nationaltrust.org.uk/greatbritishwalk for more information and to download hundreds of free walking routes.

Nationwide Coffee Announces a New Range of Coffee Machines for Lease

Nationwide coffee is pleased to announce its new range of lease coffee machines. Operating since 2007 the company has over 3 years of commercial success in coffee machine leasing and selling as well as refill and coffee bean selling itself. The new ranges of coffee machines are designed to maximise user ease and provide the highest quality coffee of any models on the market.

Interestingly, hiring coffee machines and other amenities has become standard practice for most commercial companies in the last decade. Even multi-national conglomerates are increasingly using hire machines, over purpose bought models. Whilst this may seem surprising there is actually some sensible business thinking behind this strategy.

Firstly, a hired machine has the obvious advantages of offering an extended payment plan. Machines cost as little as £2.50/day compared to a one off cost of £500 and upwards. Whilst this seems to be a case of bad mathematics as £500 for a machine that lasts a few years is only equal to 200 days of hire there are a number of other considerations to take into account. Most notably coffee machines require regular care and servicing – once every six months at a minimum. If a company buys the machine themselves they will typically need to pay £100 or more for a service, which over two years greatly increases the costs of the machine. In juxtaposition a hire contract will include the costs of servicing and replacing the machine should it break.

Secondly, a hired machine is tax deductible. If a company hires a large variety of coffee or any other coffee machines these are completely tax deductible meaning that machine hire doesn’t reduce profits – unlike purchasing machines individually.

Finally machine hire plans have better warranties and offer instant machine replacements should anything impair the machines effectiveness or prevent it from working. This means they offer a quick and efficient service that ensures machines work in the optimal way.

Kellogg’s Announces ‘Win A Year Of Family Fun’ Promotion

Kellogg’s has partnered with the Merlin Entertainments Group to offer consumers a huge family promotion this summer.

The ‘Win a Year of Family Fun’ promotion, coordinated by Iris Manchester, offers consumers the chance to win one of 500 Merlin Annual Passes to some of the UK’s most popular family attractions.

But consumers don’t need to be one of the lucky 500 to enjoy unrivalled added value. Every single one of the 30 million participating packs will feature a cut-out voucher allowing consumers to gain two-for-one access to over 35 of the best-loved attractions in the UK and Republic of Ireland.

The two-for-one vouchers on each pack means that consumers can enjoy up to £41 in free tickets each time they purchase a participating Kellogg’s cereal.

“As the category leaders, it’s really important that we lead the way in terms of bringing fantastic added value to shoppers,” said Sam Blunt, digital and consumer promotions controller at Kellogg’s.

“The Win a Year of Family Fun promotion definitely delivers on value. We know that most UK families look for days out during the summer so two-for-one tickets will be a huge help financially and the Merlin Annual Passes will mean 500 families can enjoy unlimited days out completely free.”

The promotion will run on all of Kellogg’s most popular family cereals including Rice Krispies, Coco Pops and Corn Flakes.

Participating Merlin attractions include the Alton Towers Theme Park, Chessington World of Advertures Resort and Thorpe Park. There are 25 participating Merlin attractions in total across the UK and ROI and Rachel Kelly, global partnerships manager for Merlin believes the added value on offer will appeal to consumers.

Kellogg’s Gives Workers A Royal Pardon Over Wedding Public Holiday

Kellogg’s has announced that employees at the Manchester-based food giant who don’t want to watch the Wills and Kate nuptials told they can take the extra holiday whenever they like.

Kellogg’s has taken the unusual step to give its workers an extra day’s holiday to celebrate the royal wedding but allowing them to take it on a day of their choice.

The royal wedding on April 29 was declared a public holiday by David Cameron but the cereal maker has decided to allow employees at its UK head office flexibility over when they take the break.

Kellogg’s said it hoped the move would help workers achieve a better work life balance.

Tanya Thornber, European HR director at Kellogg’s explained: “We wanted to offer our employees real flexibility over the extra public holiday to celebrate the royal wedding. For some workers it may not be convenient to take the day off on April 29 or they may not want to watch the nuptials between William and Kate.

“As a global company we have a diverse and multinational workforce at the UK head office so we respect the fact that not everyone wants to celebrate the royal wedding. This sort of flexibility really boosts morale as it gives employees the choice to either take the day off and enjoy the wedding or come to work as usual and take it another day during the year when it may be more appropriate for them to spend the extra time with family or friends.”

Kellogg’s offers its workers a range of flexible working benefits including its summer hours initiative or Kellogg’s Fridays where staff can take Friday afternoons off from May to September*.

VitaBrew Coffee Certifies Eight O’Clock Coffee and GNC Ultra Mega for FDA Label Compliant Vitamin Fortified Coffee Recipe

VitaBrew Coffee LLC released its Free Certified Healthy Coffee recipe to the general public with its Independent Consumer laboratory Approved ingredients. VitaBrew Coffee Founder, Edward Mugits, has placed the FDA compliant Ingredient label copy of their recipe for Eight O’Clock Coffee and GNC Ultra Mega Vitamin and Mineral fortified Coffee online for the general public and Crohn’s Disease help.

VitaBrew Coffee promotes online healthy recipes to encourage the intake of critical nutrients through the most commonly consumed beverage in the world. “For many, coffee is a staple, states Edward, it’s breakfast with or without a donut, muffin, toast or anything else, and for those who follow this dietary routine, the vast majority intake no supplements at all. I am one of those who placed less importance on nutrient intake than my morning coffee, and that morning brew took a lot more time than it takes to swallow a supplement. Is it a stigma with taking a pill, for many yes, but I call it lazy because I didn’t take them regardless of a reason, so I developed a Healthy Coffee for my nutritional intake and those who suffer from Crohn’s Disease. Living with Crohn’s disease is a whole different ball game, there are so many people afflicted with Crohn’s Disease who simply cannot digest the supplements that Coffee, for those who can consume it, is a perfect vehicle to improve their nutrient intake through their mucous linings and digestive tract if liquefied and diluted.

Look on my viatabrewcoffee website and you will see other unique sources of nutrient intake vehicles, such as Vitamingum, a vitamin fortified chewing gum by Vitaball LLC, made for those who may not take supplements but chew gum and those who simply cannot take them orally. That little piece of gum was never developed for Crohn’s Disease help or support, but it is helping and we thank Vitaball LLC for their continued expanse in healthy products for those in need .

Why GNC? because their natural supplements are the most effective formulations that we found compared to 8 other leading manufacturers. GNC provides the consistent quality control that actually exceeds GMP standards and their supplements were the only one that passed 3 consecutive Independent Consumer laboratory tests through the High temperature brewing process. GNC continues to improve its formula and results may vary with the evolving Ultra Mega supplements. It was at GNC where we found the Vitamin Fortified Gum”.

These statements are not endorsed by GNC, Eight O’Clock Coffee or the FDA, the FDA does not control the supplement requirements other than label claim. The Vitabrew Coffee recipes and the products and or information it places online are not to be construed as a cure, treatment or something prescribed to heal, treat or supplement any medically administered program, When in doubt, seek a physician’s advice prior to trying anything new.

Kellogg’s Reveal What Women Want – Chocolate

Kellogg’s reveal through new research that women think about it all the time, enjoy it most after a bad day and would choose it over any other pleasure in life – chocolate that is.

Kellogg's Reveal What Women Want - Chocolate

The research* by Kellogg’s has revealed that over 20% of women in the UK say they would kiss goodbye to their sex lives before their chocolate fix and over a quarter would give up their chardonnay and Chanel.

In fact according to the report it seems women have a one track mind for chocolate as 30% confessed they thought about their treat most during the day, compared to just 18% who said they think about sex**.

A bad day at work is the main reason women turn to chocolate for comfort with over half of all women admitting this is when they indulge the most, while a third do so after an argument with their partner.

Ladies in Yorkshire are the most likely to be driven to the chocolate cupboard by their hormones with 40% saying they turn to chocolate to relieve PMT.

The research shows chocolate is a woman’s ultimate guilty pleasure with 2.3m admitting they eat it more than 3 times a day however, 70% of women said they felt guilty for doing so, with health, weight and dirty looks from their partner the top reasons for guilt.

Women also use chocolate as a reward with 41% saying they treat themselves after eating healthily including healthy snacks all day and 20% after exercising. This could start with a healthy breakfast at the beginning of the day and feeling the chocolate has been earned by the end.

Kellogg’s Report Finds Monroe Not Moss Is The Ideal Figure

According to a new report from the Kellogg company, a massive 60% of British women say they are actually ‘fruit-shaped’ apple and pears but over two thirds of the nation are desperate for the classic Marilyn Monroe-esque hourglass figure.

kelloggs

In a landmark study to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Kellogg’s Special K*, it was found that the ultimate slimming goal for women is no longer being the ‘Perfect 10’ but to get a curvy hourglass shape.

Regardless of whether they were 25 or 55 the hourglass figure personified by the shapely Nigella Lawson resolutely remains the body shape the majority of women aspire to. In fact, just 7% yearned for the boyish and shapeless body made famous by the likes of Twiggy in the sixties and Kate Moss in the nineties and the noughties.

With over 35% of the nation’s women confessing they are apple-shaped – a shape characterized by an undefined waist – and just 13% possessing an enviable hourglass figure – it seems shape not size is what matters most to women these days.

The research by Special K revealed women are taking their inspiration from curvy celebrities in the media too. While the sensuous hourglass curves of Nigella topped Special K’s inspiration index, Dame Helen Mirren was voted the second biggest ‘body booster’ – becoming an inspiration to millions after being photographed in her bikini last year, and Dame Judi Dench came in third.

Key body shape boosters include seeing shapely women on TV rather than size zero models, curvy celebrities with hunky boyfriends (such as Charlotte Church and Gavin Henson), and older actresses such as Helen Mirren ‘baring all’ for nude scenes.

Laura Bryant from Special K said: “The report shows that women’s attitudes to slimming over the last 50 years have changed along with their figures. It seems British women have lost their waists but now they are demanding them back. They are more concerned about getting a curvy hourglass shape like their grandmothers instead of being the perfect size 10 which shows a marked shift in attitude from the 80’s and 90’s when success and failure when slimming was benchmarked against fitting into certain sized clothes.”

To help people achieve their ideal shape for the summer and beyond, Kellogg’s Special K has created ShapeMate, an online tool which allows users to create their own free personal plan and delivers expert advice tailored to meet individual needs. The Kellogg’s site also features a BMI calculator to help people understand if their body mass index, a measure of a person’s height versus their weight, is in the ideal range or not.

* Survey by Tickbox across 2,000 women across the UK.

About the Kellogg company:
Since William Keith Kellogg filed the papers that officially incorporated the Battle Creek Toasted Corn Flakes Company on 19th Feb 1906, the Kellogg’s company has been driven by the philosophy that an improved balanced diet leads to improved health. The Kellogg company is now the most successful cereal manufacturer in the world.

Eden Springs Launches Online Hydration Calculator

Eden Springs, the UK’s leading water cooler supplier, have just released a new hydration calculator that enables people to work out how much water they should be drinking. This online tool calculates your optimum daily water intake by taking into account a person’s gender, age, weight and exercise routine. The hydration calculator is available in the services section of the Eden Springs website.

It is commonly accepted that we all require a certain amount of water to maintain optimum health, energy and concentration. It is also reported that most people fall short of this daily requirement. What is less understood is exactly how much water we need.

Everyone is familiar with the ‘8 glasses a day’ or “7 glasses per day” arguments, but these rumours often understate our true requirements and don’t take into account the differences in a person’s age, weight and lifestyle. On the flip side, drinking too much water is not ideal either so it’s important for an individual to learn about their own requirements with some level of accuracy.

Damien Higgins, Marketing Manager at Eden Springs says “Eden Springs have released this calculator to give existing customers and website visitors a way of working out how many glasses of water they might need and it’s a reminder to us all that we should be refilling our glasses as we go about our day.”

“We’ve also just released a new range of low cost bottled water cooler rental plans, and this calculator helps people to work out how many bottles of water they might need each month for their home or office. Of course, we can also deliver additional bottles to their doorstep at short notice if they find they’re running short.”
