Give Your Kitchen a Pop of Color With Core Kitchen! {A Review & Giveaway}

I was provided colorful kitchen essentials from Core Kitchen for my personal enjoyment and use in exchange for my honest feedback.  I was not compensated for this review or for hosting this giveaway in any other way.  All opinions expressed below are 100% my own.

I have to admit- I am a sucker for pretty much anything bright and fun for the kitchen.
I often bring home a novel, brightly colored new kitchen gadget only to find out that though the colors may be pretty, the quality and construction of the fun gadgets were not up to par.
A handle would snap off.  Or the blade on that nifty potato peeler couldn't slice off a peel from a potato if my life depended on it.  
Yep. A big womp womp.

So I would revert back to the plain, old boring black & silver kitchen gadgets that never let me down... at least when it came to actual sturdiness and usefulness in my daily kitchen adventures.  
It just seemed to me like you couldn't have fun pops of color and durability in the same kitchen gadgets.

Then I was invited to give Core Kitchen products a go.  I have to admit that initially I was skeptical.  I was VERY impressed by the fun colors I was seeing on their site, but would they hold up in my kitchen?
I was willing to put them to the test...
I first decided that I needed to get rid of the glass mason jar I had sitting on my counter to hold my silicone spatulas, so I ordered their Wavy Utensil Holder in Teal. Can I just say love, love, love? Not only is it much prettier than a mason jar, but it can hold a lot more than just a few spatulas. :) 

Now we are getting to some of my absolute favorites from Core Kitchen...
The Grip Strip Funnel Board gets used in my kitchen almost daily.  I just love this cutting board.  The grip strips ensure that the board doesn't slide around while you are slicing and dicing, which I find to be pretty much essential when you are doing that slicing and dicing with the Core Santoku or Chef Knives.
These knives have quickly became my favorites in my kitchen. I think I only use my old chef's knife now when my Core ones happen to be in the dishwasher dirty. ;)
And I love the heavy duty plastic sheathes that come with them.  I can store them in my Wavy Utensil Holder and not have to worry about trying to make room for them in my knife block.

And how cute and fun are the Essential Silicone Pinch Bowls??  I adore these and use them for everything- measuring out ingredients, recipe post props, and they often serve as the perfectly sized snack bowls for my two year old daughter. ;)

I have had all of these bright and fun Core Kitchen products in my home for over two months now, and they are definitely standing up to the daily abuse of a food blogger.... and the constant snacking of a toddler.  

And now myself and Core Kitchen would like to give one of my lucky readers all of my Core favorites:
(A $94 Value!)
