Tyler Florence Fancy Box October 2013 Review


This month was my first shipment of the Tyler Florence Fancy Box and I am so glad that I signed up! This subscription promises: “Get a collection of the best home goods hand-picked by celebrity chef Tyler Florence each month. Each box includes $80.00+ of products.” I’ve been reading reviews on these boxes for months and absolutely love all the kitchen products and gadgets included in each one. Definetly a perfect box for someone who wants to branch out in the kitchen! : )



$39/month, + shipping costs (mine is $7.95). The value of the products inside is almost always double the cost of the box, if not more. We’re always talking full sized items people!!


the goods

Included is an envelope with some silly stickers & also cards about each product selected for this month’s box, along with the explanations of why Tyler chose each and every item in this month’s box! This is a great feature as it’s interesting to see why he thought the items would be great for people.

Whats inside

1 • Waiter’s Friend by Gentlemen’s Hardware
This could be a really nice gift for someone, as it comes in some great packaging and has all three features of a quality bottle opener.

2 • Doomed Crystal Skull Shot Glass
This was the “Happy Halloween!” gift in this month’s box. This shot glass actually looks really cool and even when it’s not Halloween season this is still a great glass for a party!

3 • Tyler Florence California Cabernet Marinade
This can be used as a marinade or sauce… I think it’s safe to say that I will love this flavor! It says once you use it you’ll never go back to your last steak sauce, excited to give this a try making a brand new recipe in my crock pot!

4 • Tyler Florence Brown Sugar Pork Rub
A perfect balance between sweet and savory, this is not only a pork rub but would go good on things like french fries too! Excited to give this a try.

5 • Wide Grater by Art & Cook
I don’t have a nice grater so this is a great kitchen surprise! It comes in a bright green and a red also, but I’m stuck with the blackish grey one.. that’s okay, not everything I own needs to be rainbow colored!

6 • Fox Run Vintage Double Timer
This timer is absolutely adorable! I usually use Siri on my phone to set my alarms for me, but this will be a nice change.

7 • Tyler Florence Pewter Oven Mitt
Hopefully I will be doing a lot more baking now that the holidays are coming near, so this should come in handy! The other mitts I have are just a random mixture of ones that I’ve stolen from my Ma, so it’s nice to start my own lil collection haha : )

all love & smiles,
