I have a pet peeve and it’s torn cereal boxes. Mr P, among most of the men in my family i.e my brothers while growing up, seem to never be able to open a cereal box without tearing the lid in half or sidways. It’s a small petty pet peeve but one that I can’t live with. Call me OCD but it looks horrible and makes the cereal go stale. Who wants to eat stale cereal? Not me.
I have owned a few various food storage containers for my cereals over the years. They are the perfect solution to this annoying pet peeve of mine. However, it created a new pet peeve. Most of the containers I have owned hard hard to open to clean out and refill. They also are too hard for the kids to open and pour themselves a bowl of cereal. While this was never a problem in the past Buba is now on “independent mode” and at an age where he wants to do things himself. He found the last ones we owned very hard to open and handle.
In comes Oxo Good Grips with their amazing POP Cereal Dispenser. If you are a frequent reader here you will know I am obsessed with the Oxo range both Oxo Tot and Oxo Good Grips. They make my love for being in the kitchen so much easier with their amazing helpful gadgets and tools, not to mention their stylishly hip, Oxo Tots range for kids.
I was a little worry that this 4.2 liter cereal dispenser might be heavy or too big for Buba to handle but I was so wrong. It’s very light weight, almost feather like, I promise. I never lie in my honest reviews. One side has contoured grip for easier holding especially for those little hands. The lid literally pops open at the slightest touch, even Missy Moo can do it.
Now for me it’s about the cleaning and refilling as well. Some cereal dispensers are so hard to take the entire lid off to wash out. I have tucked and pulled on many that end up popping me in the mouth when it’s finally released. You know what I am talking about if you use cereal dispensers. Not a good moment trying not to curse in front of the children. This lid has a rubber liner so it suctions open and close making it easy to remove.
Impressive Oxo you have done it again.
