Core Kitchen Paring Knife – Retail Value $8.00

I love this colorful little stainless-steel knife and the fact that I can toss it in a drawer without risking knicking myself on it later. (Thank you, handy plastic sheath!) At first, I thought the pattern was just polka dots, but I think they’re actually tiny blueberries! How cute. As we gear up for the holidays—and holiday cooking—it’ll be handy to have as many spare tools around as I can get!

Mrs. Jones Soapbox Glass and Granite Spray, 16 oz – Estimated Value $9.99

I’ve gotten products from this brand before, but this is the first non-all-purpose cleaner I’ve received. I did notice that the one I got in the box—”Glass & Granite Spray”—isn’t listed on the Squix site, so I linked to the most similar product to estimate value. It looks like the “Sparkle Spray” does about the same thing as this cleaner, too. It has sort of a lemony smell, but there are other aromas at work, too (like geranium, lavender, and even eucalyptus). I think I like it though, if simply because it’s not as pungent as commercial cleaners tend to be!

e-Cloth General Purpose Cloth – Retail Value $7.99

I’ve been lamenting the sorry state of my smudgy laptop screen lately, so I’m thrilled to have this cloth! It’s not necessarily a tech-specific cleaning cloth, but its microfiber feel means it’s certainly up for the task. The terry-like texture means this guy grabs dust really easily, and even better with a bit of water added. No cleaner needed! It claims to be anti-bacterial, too, but I’m a little less trusting of that capability. (Am I too skeptical? Tis the season for sinus infections, so I’d rather play it safe…)

FREE GIFT 1: Floor 9 Ho Ho Hot Oven Mitt Set – Retail Value $20.00

Wow, is it time for Santa references already? Geez, this year went by fast! This set definitely has a Christmas slant to it, but I could see using the relatively generic red mitt all year ’round. Both the items are made from hefty canvas with a little quilting thrown in for good measure. In other words, they seem tough and not all for show. I feel like they’d make a great gift for someone who’s really into Christmas decor—I love the holidays but too much red and green isn’t really me.

FREE GIFT 2: Hallmark Home Red Embossed Tray with Spreader – Retail Value $15.99

More red and green! This ceramic tray is about the size of a dinner plate. I like that it comes with a spreader, if simply because I don’t have one of these little guys in my kitchen yet, haha. This little find will be good for parties, or in my case, toting appetizers to holiday potlucks at the homes of my friends and family (who, y’know, don’t live in small apartments and can actually accommodate a party). This is another one that would make an easy gift for someone, too. The quality seems really nice, and it’s definitely festive with the embossed tree patterns.

The Verdict: As usual, I found the items in the latest Squix Qbox introductory box to be both useful and unique. Keep in mind that I’m someone who has just started to fill out their “household”. I’ve been living the city-dwelling, bachelorette, apartment life for a while now, and since I spend more time away from my house than in it, I haven’t yet accrued a solid collection of go-to kitchen and cleaning items. For me, things like nice serving trays, cleaning cloths, and paring knives are happy sights since I don’t have a strong stash already. I could totally see someone with a more established household thinking, “Another paring knife? Okay…,” and being a little underwhelmed. But for someone like me (or maybe someone who moved into their first place, a set of newlyweds, etc.) this shipment of handy items could be right on point.

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? Yes! But hurry—this special offer box with these specific products is only available while supplies last!

COUPON: Use code MSAFREEGIFT to get two FREE gifts in your box (for a total of five items)!

Value Breakdown: This box costs $12.99 + free shipping, and by my estimations, I received about $61.97 worth of product. That means that, proportionally, I spent the following on each item:

  • Paring knife – $1.68
  • Cleaning spray – $2.09
  • Cleaning cloth – $1.67
  • Oven mitt set – $4.19
  • Tray and spreader – $3.35

  1. I received my 1st box, the shipping was so quick. I’m very happy with this box.

  2. This is a great value and really adorable. But… I do wish the Christmas items were more general holiday color scheme so could work equally well for those who celebrate other holidays that time of year.

  3. I love that pairing knife. I actually have the entire set…vegetables and fruit knifes (design) they cut well and are very sturdy. Funny thing is i end up using them for steaks, vegies, sandwiches….basically EVERYTHING!!!

    um….I’ve lived in my house for 15 years and I don’t have a “stack” of nice serving dishes HAHAHA

  4. Everything is working good now! 😉

  5. Oh, I want this box. I love how useful the items are~

  6. I did not get free shipping. I used the promo code MSAFREEGIFT. Hmmm, frustrating.

    • I didn’t finish processing the order because shipping didn’t show up as free. Hoping this gets straighened out. Will try again tomorrow.

      • Hi Jules,

        This is now fixed so you can proceed with your order. We apologize for this inconvenience. Thanks so much for shopping with SQUIX — I know you are going to love your QBox!

      —SQUIX Customer Service

      • Well thankyou very much! So kind! I sent an email to your customer service group along with my order number.

  7. If I understand it correctly only first box is 12.99 + free shipping. Then 15.98 + 5.95 shipping.

  8. I’m not getting free shipping with th promo code, anyone else having problems?

    • Not working for me either. There’s a code on their website as well and it doesn’t work. They must be having a glitch with the free shipping part. Darn. Maybe I’ll check back tomorrow.

      • Hi Emily & Jennifer,

        The code with free shipping is working so you can proceed with your orders. Our apologies for this inconvenience. If you need any further assistance please email customerservice and we’d be happy to help. Thanks so much for shopping with SQUIX — you will love your QBox subscription!
