A great deal of you probably don’t know that I suffer with a disease called Undifferentiated Connective Tissue Disease or UCTD for short.
I was diagnosed very young at only 12, I had suffered from 8/9yo and at 1st my parents thought it was just Growing Pains, but once it didn’t pass they put all their resources into finding out what was causing my pain.
So at 12 yrs old at London Bridge Hospital after another X-Ray and Blood Test, a specialist in the know diagnosed me, I have since that date been left to deal with my problem, to be honest I don’t really know any different.
In simple terms I have the joints and strength of a arthritis sufferer in their 80’s, on a day-to-day simple tasks can be a little difficult, I have to buy special pens for work and can’t undo Jars, but in the Kitchen has always been one of my toughest feats. I constantly drop glasses, can not mash potatoes and burnt myself more times than I can remember. In the past 5 years I have ended up in A&E 8 times due to Kitchen Incidents.
So you can imagine how excited I was then, when Oxo contacted me and asked me to review some of their Good Grips range.
The Good Grips Range was made so all, including people with Arthritis could cook with ease.
OXO’s revolutionary patented product design combines the comfort of a cushion gripwith the finest materials – Good Grips by name, Good Grips by nature!
I have had the Oxo Good Grips peeler for a few years and it has helped me no end, I had not realised Oxo now made such a large range of products to use in the Kitchen, all with a lovely sleek design, over the next few weeks I shall be luckily reviewing the following products, so do head back or sign up to receive my blog via email (box on the left) to hear how I get on.
