When CSN stores gave me the opportunity to do a review of one of the many, many items in their 200+ stores, I wasn't sure how I was going to narrow it down and choose only one! I had planned on reviewing the Dutch Oven that was chosen for me in my last CSN stores gift card giveaway, but my grandmother ended up giving me a Dutch Oven right before the review, so that wasn't an option anymore. As luck would have it, my husband had JUST put together his new grill (that he's pretty proud of, I might add), and he needed a grill set because my flimsy tongs and tiny steak knives just weren't cutting it.
We chose the Sterling Forge 18-piece Barbeque Toolset for only $48.99 (with FREE SHIPPING!) mostly because we wanted to say that we own an 18-piece Barbeque Toolset :) I mean, this thing is so amazing that we're not even sure what all of the tools are supposed to be used for! Having said that, I do want to mention that this has been the one thing that I wasn't 100% satisfied with. Maybe we are just dumb, but we really don't know what all the tools are for, and the set didn't come with any details or instructions. So...we'll either be guessing and using them for what we hope is the right purpose, or some of the tools won't ever be used at all. In every other aspect though, we are more than happy.
Here's what it looks like in real life with my shadow in the way :)
My fave tool is the one below because it is a spatula that has a knife edge on one side so that you can cut into your meat to make sure it's done before serving. I didn't even know they made tools like that for grilling, and I really, really wish we'd discovered it long ago. It's so useful!
Overall, this kit is great, and we are excited to get to use it even more next summer! We might even do some snow grilling just because we didn't get in enough uses before our propane tank ran out and we want to try out the corn knobs! I encourage you to keep CSN stores in mind when you're shopping for holiday gifts -- they've got great deal and you won't have to deal with the crowds...put on a little Christmas music and shop away!
