My family knows me. They know the good, the bad, and the… well, never you mind about the rest. Knowing me like they do, they know that, whether it’s birthday, anniversary, Mother’s Day, or Christmas, buying me anything with Rachael Ray’s name on it is a very safe bet.
I’ve collected Rachael Ray cookbooks, dishes, and kitchen tools for as long as I can remember. The bright, happy, vivid colors combined with unsurpassed durability and functionality rock my culinary world.
I even buy Rachael Ray products for my daughters – in each one’s kitchen colors. Not only do I know they’ll use (and love) them daily… I know they’ll think about me each time they do.
Fun and Functional
This beautiful purple Rachael Ray Garbage Bowl was actually given to me as a gift a few years ago. I recently came across the pictures in my iPhone and realized I’d never written a review on this kitchen favorite.
Duh on me!
When the garbage bowls first came out, in spite of being a Rachael Ray Kitchen Tool junkie, I never bought one for myself because (to be honest) I wasn’t sure I’d even use it. I thought, “Yes, it’s beautiful and yes, it’s Rachael Ray… but I just toss my trash in a Kroger bag as I cook.”
Fast Forward to today… I have used this bowl every single day since receiving it two years ago. Every. Single. Day. It’s just unspeakably convenient to throw peels, cans, rubber bands, foil, etc into as I’m cooking. Grabbing the bowl before I start baking or cooking is as automatic as putting on a seat belt when I get in a car.
Not only is the bowl, somehow, just fun to use, it also looks a heckuva lot better sitting on the counter than a grocery bag. What’s more, there’s no “seeping” through or “spilling out” like you get with a grocery bag.
The great looking Rachael Ray Garbage Bowl is available on Amazon in the following colors: purple, red, orange, dark green, green, and blue.
