514LLvdfmlL._SL1000_

Salt And Pepper Mill

Time to throw away the boring old salt and pepper pots, we have come across something a lot more stylish, something that we wouldn’t mind having out on display rather than chucked to the back of the cupboard that we have to hunt high and low for when needed, don’t you just hate having to hunt for salts and spices at meal times….we sure do!

This is not only a stylish little gadget it takes up hardly any room, it is that easy to fill up and use my boys even do it. The Ozeri Fresko salt and pepper mill has a lovely brushed stainless steel look to it and is of great quality, the grinder can be adjusted from fine to coarse at ease with the turn of an adjustment rod which you can easily fit two fingers round and turn.

Such Great Quality

One thing we love is fresh ground peppercorns and with the features of powerful ceramic gears, this salt and pepper mill grounds them with ease. The salt and pepper mill is designed in Germany and is made of stainless steel, with the perfect space-saving design. With the grinder having see through window’s this allows us to see the grinding in action and also allows us to monitor the levels so we know when it needs refilling.

The salt and pepper mill dimensions are 3.8 x 3.8 x 17.1 cm as you can see from the picture on the right, to fill the salt and pepper mill you just simply pull the sections open, fill them and then just push them back together again, it really is that simple!

at either end of the grinder there is a cap, when you wish to use the grinder you select what end you wish to use, pull the protective cap off and twist the grinder, when you have finished pop the cap back on.

Ozeri Bathroom Scales

Ozeri Bathroom Scales

Time To Take Control

Being overweight, scales have not been my best friend, as to me they was just a constant reminder of how overweight I had become, I have recently made a life changing decision and have decided to start living more of a healthier life, we are taking control of our food intake as well as being more active and not being afraid to step on those scales and take control of the horrid answer!

Ozeri Bathroom Scales
Dimensions 34.3 x 2.5 x 35.6cm

When these scales arrived, my first thoughts was WOW! they are so different to my old scales, my old scales look boring and uninviting compared to these ones. what I love is that they have a distinctive retro look to them and the chrome really sets them off, I know it’s not the look of the scales that give you your results but how much nicer are these scales compared to the old style scales. The 14 cm (5.5 inch) dial and integrated digital display is a lovely size and makes reading your weight more easier and from any angle too.

Some Great Features

Ozeri Bathroom ScalesAnother feature I love is the synchronized electro-mechanical dial and LCD automatically illuminate and instantly point to your weight in lbs and kgs and the results are very easy to read. I love that I can sneak in the bathroom in the dark and check my weight myself without the added pressure of everyone asking what my weight was. These scales also have an in-built alarm so you can weigh yourself the same time each day if you wish, how cool is that a little reminder to help you to keep check if you are like me and wanting to loose those pounds, its best to keep check.

I Was Very Hesitant

Ozeri Bathroom Scales

I admit when it came to standing on the scales for the first time I was hesitant, purely because I hadn’t stepped on scales for quite some time. These scales have a large platform made of impact-resistant tempered glass with slip resistant feet, ideal for that extra stability.There are four high precision GX sensors that weigh up to 180 kg (400 lbs) with step-on technology that captures precise weight measurements upon contact (no tapping required) so there really was nothing for me to worry about.

Whether you are trying to loose weight or muscle tone these scales will keep up with your body changes and automatically turn themselves off when not in use to conserve battery life. There was one feature missing on these scales that I would have liked and that was to weigh in stone.

These scales normally retail for £29.99 but are currently selling for £19.99 on Amazon.

BP3T Blood pressure monitor, health, Ozeri, review., wellbeing

Ozeri cardio tech premium series BP3T blood pressure monitor

Blood pressure monitor

I have recently been reviewing the Ozeri cardio tech premium series blood pressure monitor.

The monitor has a automatic hypertension indicator using an intelligent graphical display, it has push-button access to average blood pressure calculation, it has irregular heartbeat ( Arrhythmia ) detection, it has the clock, date & time stamp for each reading, it requires 4 AAA batteries these come with the unit and it also comes with a adult sized arm cuff ( 8.7″ – 16.5″/22-42cm ).This blood pressure monitor is portable, accurate and simple to use, it comes with a arm cuff design with clinically proven technology, it has advanced one-step operation, it is fully automatic on inflation and deflation, the monitor is designed for 2 users and stores 120 blood pressure readings ( 60 per user ).

Here is a picture I took from the user manual that explains the reading

Applying the cuff

  1. Make sure the air plug is securely inserted into the main unit.
  2. Apply the cuff to your upper left arm with the tube running downward along your inner forearm, the base of the cuff should be approximately 1″ above your elbow.
  3. The cuff should be snug but not tight, you should be able to insert one finger between the cuff and your arm.
  4. Sit comfortably with your arm resting on a flat surface and the cuff level with your heart.
  5. Be careful not to rest your arm on the air hose as this could restrict the units airflow.
www.thehousethatneverrests.com this is the monitor

The monitor weight is approx. 10.6 oz ( 300g ) excluding batteries.

The main unit external dimensions approx. 7″ (L) x4″ ( W ) x 1 1/2″  ( H )  ( 180mm x 100mm 39mm )
Measurement range. Pressure: 0-300mmHg(0-40kPa)
Pulse value: (40-199) times/minute

Setting the date and time was very easy to do, with the unit off press and hold the SET button for 3 seconds until the YEAR begins to flash, you will then need to press the MEM button to advance the year, once you have set the correct year you then press the SET button to save it, the unit will then go on to the same process with setting the date and time, we found the process rather easy to follow.

To use the monitor you would choose if you are going to be person ( A ) or person ( B ), apply the cuff, press start, wait a few seconds and then you will have your reading.

This blood pressure monitor is a nice handy size and it comes with this great bag with handle.

Monitoring your own blood pressure

Monitoring your own blood pressure at home is a really useful way of monitoring your blood pressure in your daily life, it is convenient, you can also look back through the saved/previous readings, keep a close eye on your previous readings, if need be you can also take it to the GP and show them your previous readings if you have any concerns, if like me and you find it very stressful having your blood pressure checked at the surgery and find your readings are up and down, you can do the readings at home and show the GP, my GP never knows if my blood pressure reading is due to the stress of having it done, my medication or if that is my blood pressure so we have been keeping a close eye on our blood pressure since having this monitor, we have had peace of mind, we can check our blood pressure day or night, we find this monitor to be compact, portable and simple to use, it is not a big machine, it is of a nice size and can fit nicely in a draw or cupboard when not in use.
If you would like to purchase one of these Ozeri CardioTech BP3T Monitors to keep a close eye on your blood pressure, the RRP is £119.99 but there is a sale on at the moment so if you hurry you may be in luck and could purchase one at £49.99.

Ozeri pedometer

 Pedometer

We was recently asked if we would review  this Ozeri pedometer, this is a great exercise tool that tracks the total number of steps you take and also the total time you spend walking, along with the distance you walk and calories you burn, it is a handy size and you can fit it in your pocket, bag or even use the strap provided and wear round your neck, I like to use the strap provided so I can keep track easier.
This pedometers motion sensor is optimized to detect steps while walking, the data is tracked daily and the daily memory is automatically reset at midnight, even though daily memory is reset at midnight the pedometer will still add each day’s data to the total memory, accumulating data for up to seven days, it counts up to 1 million steps, it has 3 recording modes, today, split and total, it has a blue back light for night viewing and also has a sports timer, clock and calendar.
This pedometer uses a lithium battery which comes with the pedometer, the pedometer has auto sleep mode to preserve the battery life, I am terrible for remembering to turn things off, for me this is an added bonus.

We have been using the pedometer and we are really enjoying using it, this is a great way to keep track on your exercise, we have been setting ourselves goals each day, and we can see how we are getting on with the pedometer on hand to help, having this pedometer has made us more determined to start exercising and to keep track on our daily exercise.

The pedometer is of a nice size, excellent quality, it looks good and has made us more motivated, we are enjoying seeing how far we have walked and calories burned on a daily basis.

The RRP is £39.99 you have a choice of colour, yellow or black, can find the digital pedometer here
