Summer has arrived in central Florida, that means we will be spending a lot of time outside on the deck, the park, the beach or pool. I’m always in need for some cups and pitchers to take along to save on cost for drinks. It’s not that easy to find products that are both leak proof and easy to handle. I found a company called “Takeya”, their designs will enrich your life. I spend a good hour or two on their website after I found them through a Google Search a few weeks back and I was very impressed with their products and the workmanship.
I decided to check out the products to see if they are holding up to my high standard. We received two products in the mail the other day the Flash Chill Lemonade Maker and the Flash Chill Ice tea Maker. My kids are big on Lemonade and orange juice and being in Florida, we have plenty in everyone’s backyard that would go to waste if we don’t use them, so we made Grapefruit Lemonade the other day; check out some of our pictures.
This was super easy, I added the ice to the Lemonade Maker, squeezed the grapefruit and added some sugar and water, gave it to the kids to shake it up… voila we had awesome fresh tasting grapefruit juice in seconds. I was a bit skeptical about the “leak proof” and not spilling claim. So many companies state “Won’t spill”. So I took the test, the toddler shook it around and the tween did, too. You can actually see on the pictures that they held it up side down; and NO spill!! This is too cool. Next up is the Flash Chill Ice team Maker; I love tea and hubby loves his southern Ice Tea so this was an exciting product for us to check out.
This just like the Flash Chill Lemonade Maker was super easy and yummy. You prepare hot water add your tea to the tea filter and fill the hot water into your small pitcher and close the lid; the tea filter screws on the inside of the lid and you can close it tightly; CAUTION….. the lid is airtight and leak-proof BUT not with the HOT water, so do not shake the HOT water around in the pitcher; I did and it almost exploded everywhere, cause it was soooo HOT!!!! so do not shake it around. Other then that let the tea sit for a few minutes just like you would your regular tea; in the mean time add ice to the larger pitcher. Once the tea is done, add sugar to the ice and add the hot tea to the large pitcher with ice; close lid tightly and shake. Voila Ice tea freshly done at home. This was so simple and so yummy; we can use any tea any flavor. In the filter for the tea you can add loos tea, tea bags or a mixture, whatever makes your day. Here are some features about the Takeya Canisters, whether it be the Lemonade Maker, the Ice Tea maker or any other Canisters they sell.

Now we are very impressed with the Takeya products; I love the durability, they never steam when cold and hot products are mixed, the airtight lid and how easy they can be stored in the fridge. This Canisters are so cool and can be a money saver if you are spending a lot of time outside since they don’t leak it’s simple and easy to take them along to any outside function; you could use them even to make Ice Coffee or any of your other favorite drinks.
