  • The Next Best Thing in Your Kitchen: Colorful Silicone Lids!

    Silicone lids are the next craze that is going to take your kitchen and dining table by storm.

    I’m a busy mom and I love to cook! Well, to be honest, I love cooking when I have plenty of time on my hands and a nice glass of wine to accompany me, which rarely happens. What I’m trying to say is I enjoy cooking, but when I’m short on time, which is just about all week long, I want it to be easy in the kitchen. So anything that can make my life a bit easier, I’m curious about. A friend of mine, Annie, told me about the BellaLoré silicone lids. She purchased a set on Amazon.com ( http://www.amazon.com) and said they’re really practical, and easy to use and clean. So I got curious and purchased a set for myself.

    One of the things Annie mentioned was that the silicone lids are very versatile and you can use them for so many things: bowl covers, food covers, microwave covers to avoid splatter, and lids for your pots and pans. I was so excited when I received my set of four silicone covers. I love the bright, fun colors, and with the four different sizes—6, 8, 10 and 12 inches—the lids fit most of my bowls, pots, and pans.

    My kids are notoriously bad at cleaning after they use the microwave (and after they use the bathroom, the TV room, the kitchen… you get my drift!), so I end up cleaning the microwave a few times a day. After I received the lids, I gave my kids an ultimatum: Use the lids for bowls in the microwave, or else…no more cookies. Well, it worked. Actually, the lids are so easy to use, they couldn’t even find an excuse not to use them! I’m so glad, because it means less cleaning for me. I also use the lids to cover my pots and stir fry pan on the stovetop, so less cleaning there too. I love this!!!! The nice thing is that they are easy to clean; I can just pop them on the top rack of the dishwasher. Most of the time, though, I wash them by hand because we use them so often.

    The BellaLoré silicone food covers are also very handy for covering dishes, leftovers, or salad bowls in the fridge to keep your food fresh longer. The lids are much easier to use than plastic wrap, so there’s no more fussing with tangled messes of wrap. All you need to do is to place the lid over the food container, press in the middle of the lid, and it is sealed! My friend Annie told me that she uses her lids in the oven to cover her casseroles, so I tried it on my stuffed pasta casserole dish and it is so convenient. They’re oven safe up to 445 F. and that means I’ll certainly use a lot less foil from now on.

    These reusable silicone lids are really practical. They are very nice to have for keeping things warm when I cook dinner on the nights not everyone is there yet. I use them every day and I certainly use a lot less plastic wrap and aluminum foil. I love saving money! And it makes me feel good about reducing waste and doing my part for the environment.

    Did I mention that my new BellaLoré silicone lids are now a must have when we eat outdoors? They add a splash of color to the table and now we can relax during the meal instead of trying to keep these little flying bugs away from our food. I also received suggestions from the seller on different ways to use my new lids. I was surprised you can even use a lid as a drain plug—I tried it, and it works!

    With your set of four silicone suction lids, BellaLoré offers a silicone brush as a limited time bonus. This brush is great for basting pastries and applying BBQ sauce and it’s so much easier to clean than the old fashioned style brush.

    The colorful silicone lids have a fantastic, risk free, money-back guarantee. If you are not completely satisfied with your BellaLoré silicone lids, you get your money back! I really encourage you to get a set and try them for yourself. They make a great gift too! Go buy them, here is the link http://www.amazon.com/Silicone-Lids-Set-Food-Covers/dp/B00RU7J4LM .
