We have recently had the opportunity to facilitate a review for the Stainless Steel Wire Brush from My Cave Tools.
My husband loves using his grill. In fact sometimes as early as the beginning of Spring, if its warm enough out he is pulling out his grill. Grilling has its advantages, barbecue is yummy of course, and who wants to turn on a hot oven on a scorching humid day. The disadvantage is the clean up, we have always hated the clean up. We have bought various grill brushes, and most just can't stand up to the job. We have had a few break, and usually always the bristles dull too quickly or they get grossly matted up.
My Cave Tools have helped us tremendously this year with that problem. The Stainless Steel Wire Brush we received from them far exceeded our expectations. When our grill was taken out this year we noticed after unsuccessful cleanings last year we had some nasty grease built up. The long handled brush easily cleaned it up without scratching the porcelain. We were afraid that in order to give it a real good cleaning we might damage it, but we are really happy its looking so new! After that first heavy usage of the brush and using a handful of times since the brush is still as good as new too. The bristles easily fit between the grill grates, and the long handle keeps our hands safe from the heat. We have even noticed our food tastes like what we are cooking and it doesn't acquire any funny tastes from previous grilling.
The Stainless Steel Wire Grill Brush from My Cave Tools is the best brush for porcelain coated grills, it will not scratch your grill. The heavy duty stainless steel bristles provide a maximum grill cleaning power with minimal effort. With its long handle it will keep your hands free from burns. The three sided grill brush design provides a complete grill grate cleaning, in every corner, edge, and between cooking rods. My Cave Tools was started back in 2013 by Michael "Medium Rare" O'Donnell, whose goal was to create superior barbecue tools for men backed by the best customer service in the grilling history. Many of O'Donnell's friends thought the grilling industry was dominated by a few major brands, they asked what could he provide that they couldn't. O'Donnell had a hunch that Cave Tools could very well fill the void these big brands left behind. They could create high quality barbecue tools that would last through multiple grilling seasons. They could provide boutique-style customer service from real people in the U.S.A. My Cave Tools could provide more value than competitors by going above and beyond for customers.
My Cave Tools also offer free download to their customers a barbecue recipe book that they developed. "The Grill Master's Essential Barbecue Recipe Book" is complete with 25 professional BBQ recipes and instructional videos. They created an internal meat temperature guide and built a member's area to be an educational resource for all things grilling. They decided to offer this all free of charge as a way of saying thank you. They also offer a full back money guarantee if for any reason you are not as impressed with the grill brush as others have been.
We would recommend the wire grill brush by My Cave Tools for grill cleaning. My husband vows its a man's tool for cleaning up the grime, he agrees with Mr. O'Donnell My Cave Tools increases manliness by 10%!

We received a sample to review of Todd Nichols' new book, Peas and Hambone Versus Flesh Eating Zombie Gorillas.
Peter nicknamed Peas, is a 10 year old boy with an extraordinary dog. When no one else is around his dog Hambones can walk and talk like an adult! Peas and Hambones decide one day to sneak into the zoo. Hambones has beef with a gorilla who threw dirt at him, he wants to get him back. While looking for the dirt-throwing gorilla they stumble upon an evil plot and a mad scientist. The gorillas in the zoo have all been given a potion that turns them into flesh eating zombie gorillas. It becomes up to Peas and Hambones to save the world from these zombie gorillas and find an antidote to cure them.
My 10 year old son and I read this book together. He was laughing by the end of the first chapter. Between the vocabulary and the pacing he was kept interested until the end. I have even heard him using a couple catch phrases from the book like "oh my shnippies" He related well with the characters and would love to read more of Pea's and Hambone's adventures.
The title of the book may have some thinking it is a horror story, but it is quite the opposite It tends to focus more on the humorous antics of Peas and Hambone. Thrown in are some crazy funny chases, absurd combat, and some gross humor that kids love! The book is about 120 pages, long enough for young readers to enjoy a great adventure and short enough that they're not going to close the book in boredom.
The author of Peas and Hambone Versus Flesh Eating Zombie Gorillas is Todd Nichols. Todd Nichol's has been an elementary teacher for the last 11 years. A concord native, he earned his bachelor's degree in cardiopulmonary science in 1993 from Northeastern University. There he later, also received his masters degree in education. Currently, Nichols lives in Massachusetts with his wife, five year old twins, and a cat named Pokey. The only thing he is more passionate about than being an elementary teacher, is writing. This hobby lead him to writing Peas and Hambone Versus Flesh Eating Zombie Gorillas. He said he was not a big reader as a child, not until later in college. He wished he would of had material that engaged him as a child. This made him decide he wanted to write an authentic engaging book for kids.
This book has our thumbs up! It's a great summer read!
