Cillit Bang have just launched their pioneering new kitchen dispenser, the All in 1 Dish and Surface Cleaner and I have been lucky enough to put the new product on the cleaning block through its paces.
This is the only product on the market that cleans both dishes and cleans surfaces and leaves everything gleaming! It really does take the hard work out of cleaning, the system really could not be easier to use. Simply hold your scourer or dishcloth up to the sensor on the dispenser and a level amount of the liquid is dispensed for you to start cleaning. The motor in the dispenser makes a whirring noise before the product is dispensed so you are not taken by surprise.
With a 3 year old in the house, I find myself cleaning the kitchen surfaces and cupboard doors constantly due to mucky fingerprints. The handy dispenser easily sits by my sink and does not look out of place in the kitchen. With one simple reach to the dispenser I am ready to get cracking with wiping up for a sparkling clean. Washing dishes is made very simple and I have found that a little really does go a long way as the liquid is measured out perfectly.
We were sent the dispenser and refill box as a starter pack, refills can also be purchased separately.
To really test the new product from Cillit Bang we were sent some fabulous recipes from Holly Bell, the runner up in the Great British Bake Off who helping to put the new cleaner to the test. The recipes really did have me drooling and it was a very hard decision to choose one for the test (I will be attempting the rest!) but knowing how much Liv loves biscuits it made sense to make Cornish Ginger Fairing Biscuits. The recipe we followed is:
Cornish Ginger Fairing Biscuits
- 4oz butter
- 6oz self raising flour
- 3 oz castor sugar
- 1 level tbsp golden syrup
- 1 level tsp ground ginger
- 1/2 level tsp bicarbonate of soda
- First preheat the oven to Gas Mark 5/190°C/375°F and line a couple of baking trays with greaseproof paper
- Melt the butter and syrup in a saucepan
- Once melted add the ginger, flour, sugar and bicarbonate and give it a good mix with a wooden spoon
- Check it’s not too hot to handle. Here comes the fun bit…
- Form the warm Play Doh type mixture into balls about the size of large walnuts
- Put them onto the lined baking trays and make sure there’s plenty of space for them to grow in the oven so you don’t get one large tray of biscuit
- Put the baking trays in the oven for 12 – 15 minutes until the balls look biscuity
- If you like your biscuits with a bit of ‘chew’ (more cookie like) take them out when only the sides are brown. If you like them crunchy then let the whole biscuit get a suntan
- Let them cool on the baking tray for a few minutes then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
The biscuits really were a great success, they were very crunchy and had the texture of chunky cookies. I am a huge fan of ginger biscuits and next time we make them (the ingredients are cupboard staples!) I think I shall add a little more ginger for my personal taste. Although not incredibly mess to make, my kitchen surfaces did need a wipe down to the flour I used to coat them. It did make it easier to bind the biscuit mixture together.
I can categorically say the Cillit Bang All in 1 Dish and Surface Cleaner is something everything kitchen needs, it really does make cleaning easier and allows you more time to spend having fun with your children and baking!
