Am I the only one who loves bacon but hates the mess? That is where this Microwave Bacon Tray & Splatter Lid comes in! This tray allows you to cook bacon quickly and with little mess. The grooved base drains fat, without sacrificing taste, for a healthier cooking experience. It is super easy to use and super cute too! (Hint: the tray will get hot, so I recommend using hot mits to get it out of the microwave!).

Okay, this Potato Brush is beyond cute. I like just putting this out, because it is just so darn cute! Who wouldn’t want this cute little potato sitting on your sink? I love that this potato brush is small and that it comfortably fits your hand for easy use. The abrasive yet gentle nylon bristles ensure a thorough cleaning. Functional and cute!

Just hook this cute little devil onto the dish’s edge, or the oven rack itself, and pull. If your culinary creation needs a little more time, use the Devil Oven Pull to push it back into place. I love this! It makes checking on the items in your oven so easy. It is sturdy and does its job. It’s also a talking point, because everybody wants to know why you have a devil in your kitchen!

The jo!eShop has a ton of really great products like these. I recommend checking them out, and you won’t be disappointed!
