  • I have liked OXO ever since I discovered it. The Good grips are especially useful with arthritis. However, I think the best thing ever, (and I hope I have the right name) was an office ‘twirl’. My daughter loved black and chrome and so one Christmas, I bought her the black container for her desk, with everything in it. Problem was, there were only a few black paper clips in it, so I wrote to ask how I would ever find black paper clips in a normal store. Almost by return post, I received a very full packet of clips, free of charge. Very impressive!


  • Just submitted my recipe. 🙂 This is such a fun contest and I love the prizes.
