QVC Review

Anyone who knows me knows I love kitchen items.  I flock to the housewares department of a store like a moth to a flame.  I've been cooking and baking much more recently than ever.  I truly enjoy it and I want to have the appropriate tools and resources to make my culinary dreams come true.  Presentation is key in cooking and serving and QVC helps to make my food the star of the show!

QVC is the multinational corporation specializing in televised home shopping.  Founded in 1986 by Joseph Segel, it broadcasts in five countries as QVC US, QVC UK, QVC Japan, QVC Germany, and QVC Italy to 200 million households! The name is an acronym standing for Quality, Value, and Convenience.  Whether you're looking for a new sweater, a blu-ray DVD player, pots and pans, makeup or skin care items, or even a new comforter set, QVC has you covered and of course has everything in between.  The best part about QVC is that you can order via phone or online, and you don't even have to leave your house!

I've done many QVC reviews in the past and anytime I can do another one, I am always excited for it.  I love their merchandise and have so many items in my home.

Since the holidays are coming up and entertaining is in full swing for most, I wanted to make sure I had some new serving pieces.  I was offered two fantastic pieces that were must haves for the holiday season.  I knew I had to have them! I received a Rachael Ray stoneware chip and dip set, and a Cook's Essentials three tier rotating party platter.

The Rachael Ray chip and dip set is absolutely beautiful.  The orange is a bright, vivid shade and is perfect for serving a multitude of things in it from hummus and pita chips to any kind of chips and baked dip.  I chose to serve quesadillas and salsa for a fun and unique appetizer for Thanksgiving yesterday.  The serving piece is very roomy and I had no problem filling up almost all of the tray with quesadillas.  The little dip bowl held my salsa perfectly.  I thought the presentation of my appetizer in the tray looked beautiful.  The set is quality made and durable. It's also very easy to hold too. I have Rachael Ray's stoneware 3 piece oval stoneware baker in red and I use it frequently.  I knew I had to have this chip and dip set to make my Rachael Ray dreams come true! Everyone commented on how pretty it was and that they would love to add it to their collection.  The best part is that it's oven and dishwasher safe.  It would make a perfect addition on your table for Christmas too. 

The three tier party platter was a complete hit at Thanksgiving! I'm sorry for the bad picture, it was hard to not have anyone in the picture since there were so many people over for dinner yesterday.  The top of the platter has a nice round knob and is attractive.  The tiers are made of a nice durable plastic and you don't have to worry about it breaking.  I absolutely love this platter. As you can see, I set up Thanksgiving desserts on it.  Of course we had many more other desserts too!  You don't have to serve desserts on it, appetizers would work just as well.  The platter was very easy to put together and in no time I had it set up and sweet treats were having the time of their lives spinning!  I think the platter is much more fun when it's turned on and the contents are rotating.  You don't have to make it rotate if you don't want to.  My guests enjoyed the rotating desserts and had fun choosing one as they came around and around.  The speed was perfect, it didn't spin too fast.  It went just the right speed in order for you to see and choose what you want. The platter was able to hold the weight of the desserts with no problem.  If you're looking for a fun and exciting modern twist to a normal serving platter this Christmas, why not choose this one?

Thank you to QVC for making my hosting dreams much more exciting this year!
