The Box

This is my second month subscribing to the Tyler Florence Fancy Box & I am so thrilled with this subscription! 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. Definitely a perfect box for someone who wants to branch out in the kitchen! : )

cost

$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

Always included is an envelope with your order and some silly stickers & also cards about each product selected for the box, along with the explanations of why Tyler chose each and every item for this month! This is a great feature as it’s interesting to see why he thought the items would be great for people. I love a nicely curated box, and this one is just perfect because it revolves around food/kitchens!

Whats inside

1 • Dreamfarm Smood
$24.95
This thing is so magical!!! So perfect for a weakling like me that has absolutely zero upper arm strength to do anything. The video on their website shows how amazing and fast this utensil is… perfect!

2 • HIC Individual Mini Pie Dish Porcelain 
$16.37
This lil dish is super tiny and adorable, I will probably end up using it for dips (it looks perfect for when I make spicy mayo with my sushi!!!). Or maybe I will branch out and make us some mini cute pies : )

I wanted to show how small this mini dish really is, so Dexter did a great job of jumping in the pic just in time to compare.

3 • Tyler Florence Spiced Apple Brine
$6.00
I’m eager to try this yummy flavor… I want to figure out a way where I can kind of just steam/brine in my crockpot instead of doing all the fancy work for a full turkey or something.. haha.

4 • Tyler Florence Black Stripe Towels
$25.00
I would never normally buy a kitchen towel that costs this much money, but these are great quality and I am so happy to have them in our kitchen! I feel fancy : )

5 • Stainless Steel Measuring Spoons
$6.00
At first I thought I was getting recycled, already been used measuring spoons from the looks of mine. Then I checked out the product on the Fancy website (the link that I provided), only to find out that that’s the way they all look. So I guess mine aren’t “used” haha! But they aren’t the nicest looking things in the world, I would have preferring something cuter or even just not all scuffed up. The look isn’t as vintagy as I would imagine this to be.

I really don't understand why the design is all scuffed up and stuff...

1 • Waiter’s Friend by Gentlemen’s Hardware
$20.00
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
$10.00
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
$6.50
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
$5.00
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
$11.99
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
$20.00
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
$19.00
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 : )

* This box doesn’t have the  greatest value, but it’s definitely much more than I paid for it and I can see myself using everything in the box! All the items are packaged and made with great quality – certainly great for my first Tyler Florence box! : )

all love & smiles,
