Make your kitchen an eco-friendly space with Bamboozle’s biodegradable kitchenware

We could all be a little more sustainable with Bamboozle's biodegradable kitchenware in our home

Bamboozle kitchenware

As we become more eco-conscious, we’re looking for items that not only fulfill that eco-friendly need, but also still look aesthetically pleasing in our homes. We also don’t want to worry about if we can put that bowl in the microwave or the dishwasher. That’s just too much to add to our day. If you want to switch your kitchen items over to sustainable items, there’s a new line from Bamboozle — Bamboozle’s biodegradable kitchenware.

What makes them stand out

Why Bamboozle? Every brand wants to be sustainable and eco-friendly. Bamboozle does all that but also looks good in any kitchen.

The ups

  • Made with sustainable materials
  • Eco-friendly bamboo, harvested with little to no impact on the environment
  • Completely biodegradable in under two years
  • Dishwasher safe products
  • Won’t stain (try it, spaghetti sauce)

The downs

  • Can’t use some items in the oven or microwave
  • Sharp utensils will scratch the items

Bamboozle natural composter

How it started

The brand Bamboozle started out with a compost bin that pretty much became the star of the show. Literally. Its compost bin was used on the hit dramedy show Beef starring Ali Wong and Steven Yeun.

If reducing food waste is on your list of priorities, the Bamboozle compost bin is step one. The bin is stylish and doesn’t scream, “Here are my scraps,” while still being affordable.

If you need an initial setup, the company sells a package deal with everything for the beginner composter that even comes with a filter, so you don’t have to smell your good deeds happening.

The newest members

It dropped an extension of its line, with kitchenware for any person, any kitchen, any style. In addition to new items, Bamboozle has a new line, Astrik, which offers the same benefits as Bamboozle, but also includes microwave-safe products.

Baking set

To all the bakers out there, everything you need to mix up a treat is available.

  • Mixing bowls
  • Measuring bowls
  • Measuring cups
  • Measuring spoons
  • Astrik mixing bowls

For the preppers

  • Prep items
  • Serving items

Made out of Astrik material, the complete prep and serving trays and bowls are the perfect way to impress friends or have a fancy night to yourself.

For the kids

If you have little eaters at home, the adorable children’s line is a must-have. Each themed set comes with a plate (with separate sections), a bowl, utensils, and a cup.

For the adults

While anyone can use the fun kid sets, there are some more sophisticated items to eat your dinner off of. From soup bowls to salad bowls and plates, whatever dinner looks like has a place to go.

Sustainability doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice your personal style. Being concerned about where your store-bought plastic kitchenware ends up is a great first step.

Making the switch to Bamboozle’s biodegradable kitchenware is an eco-friendly choice that benefits everyone. We love when fashion and function meet at the perfect spot.

Stop making this mistake when cooking with onions
Which is your favorite?

It isn't easy to think of a dish that doesn't start with - or at least include - cooking onions in one way or another. Unlike most vegetables, some form of onion is used in every cuisine across the globe, in millions of dishes in countless forms of preparation. Raw, sauteed, fried, braised, or grilled, these beautiful bulbs provide dimension and a sweet, spicy, umami flavor that you just can't replicate with any other ingredient.
The thing about onions, though, is that there are many, many kinds, and knowing which variety to choose can be confusing. From long and papery green onions with their signature spice to more mild and sophisticated shallots with their hint of garlic, onions are diverse in their culinary gifts, and it's essential to take advantage of that. Too often, home cooks make the mistake of gravitating toward a bag of yellow onions at the grocery store and call it a day, using these for salsas, pasta sauces, stir-fries, and every dish in between. And while yellow onions are fabulous (more on this in a moment), they are simply one type in a whole family of onions that provide their own signature flavors and enhance dishes in their own unique ways.
The next time you find yourself at the grocery store, consider the meals you have planned for the week, and take a minute to ask yourself - which onion is best for your dish? Are you serving them raw or cooked? How you cook onions greatly depends on the type you choose, so are you planning a braise? A deep fry? A saute?
Put down that bag of yellow onions (maybe), and read on to find out which onion you want to use for your dish.

How to make food less salty: 5 easy fixes when you make this common cooking mistake
Don't toss it just yet, you can probably save it with...a potato?
Happy man adding salt while cooking for his friends in the kitchen.

Over-salting food is one of the most common culinary blunders, falling perhaps only just below one more common cooking crime - under-salting food. It's a finicky art, to be sure, and finding just the right balance can be tricky. After all, every palate is different, every dish unique, and recipes are often inconsistent. What does "season to taste" mean anyway, many wonder. While this term may be frustrating to those who prefer to follow a recipe down to the letter, it's really just a common phrase that means, "Everyone likes it differently, so just use your best judgment."
The problem with that mentality is that if you're new to cooking or really need to follow that recipe, mistakes can be made - often in the form of over-salting. After all, it's easy to get carried away when in chef mode, slicing and dicing away, fingers sinking into the briny granules inside the salt cellar, and dramatically raining the mineral down with skilled - albeit heavy-handed - expertise.
Over-salting food has gotten the better of us all, even those of us who are professionally trained, so there's no shame in the matter. Still, the mistake can be embarrassing and ruin all of your hard work in the kitchen. Nobody wants to spend hours lovingly preparing a meal only to be choking it down with a gallon of water because of a silly mistake.
If you're wondering how to make food less salty after you've already been too generous in your seasoning, there are some handy hacks you can use. So don't toss that dish just yet. Reach for one of these ingredients, and you'll be back on track in no time.

Pouring olive oil in a salad

There's not much good olive oil can't do. Sure, it's great on pasta or drizzled over a toasted baguette. But it's also phenomenal with roasted vegetables, atop pizza, and even as a main feature in your next favorite dessert.

Shoot, if the oil is good enough, it can be enjoyed on its own. Some even believe it has restorative properties and like to apply a little to their skin. You can use it in a good olive oil cocktail or make a bowl of lentil soup with a healthy pour of it. In much of Italy, where olive oil is practically sacred, it's essentially a healthier substitute for butter. All said, you can count on one hand the dishes that wouldn't benefit from a little bit of good olive oil.
