Something New for the FLB

August 28, 2010

A while back CSN stores sponsored a cast iron pan giveaway on the FUSSYlittleBLOG. Overall, I thought it went pretty well.  The promotion was certainly a learning experience.  Apparently CSN was quite happy with how it went, and wanted to do something else on the FLB.  This time we are going to do something new.  Instead of a giveaway, I am going to pick something on cookware.com to review.  The online store has a ton of stuff, including Corelle dinnerware, which I had never seen before, but some of their simpler styles have nice clean lines.

No, I’m not going to review plates.  Rather I have my eye on something that has to do with coffee.  Not espresso, not cappuccino, but simple brewed coffee.  And it is part of my master plan to start drinking better coffee at home on a more regular basis.

I’ll give you a hint.

It’s one of these 3,144 products.  And as cool as it is, Mrs. Fussy isn’t going to be too happy about having another item on the kitchen counter.  Any guesses?

In the next few days CSN is going to send me a $55 gift certificate to buy whatever product I want to review.  When it arrives, I’ll put it through the paces, and then let you all know how it works out.

When it’s all over, we’ll see if I feel dirty, or if the shininess of my new coffee toy washes away any guilt of not turning this gift certificate over to a loyal reader.  I mean seriously, I’ve given away a bunch of stuff.  I should get to keep something, right?

    Hmm…I have two guesses, based on your previous coffee posts.

    1.
    French Press

    2.
    Espresso Maker

    I wouldn’t feel dirty about it. They’ve offered the gift card in return for your review of whatever you buy, right? They want you to do this. Have fun! I look forward to the review of whatever it is.

      Sorry, for some reason that first link isn’t leading to the product. It was supposed to link to the BonJour Maxiumus 8-Cup French Press in Graphite, but for whatever reason (or my ineptness) it’s not working.

    hmm, my guess is a bodum chambord french press, because i have one, and it’s awesome.

    A Keurig single cup brewer?

    Presto Stainless Steel Coffee Maker? (Less than $55 – check. Shiny – check. Brewed coffee – check. Counter-top – check)

    Can I guess again? Since you said none of the above are correct, I’m going to go in a different direction.

    Could it be a percolator? Maybe the West Bend Stainless Steel Coffee Maker/Percolator?

    I’ll throw a guess out there….a nice, shiny, stainless steel thermal carafe.

    I’m going to go with a coffee grinder. As you are Mr. Fussy I would think it would have to be a burr grinder. Not too many under the $55 price target but doable, maybe the Capresso Burr Grinder in Black?
