I also got a coupon for Globein!

Just a heads up, since there aren’t prices listed in the booklet for the items, so I’m going off the prices given in this Globein spoilers post for items I couldn’t find online.

Globe In Bake ceramic canister in orange

Ceramic Sugar Canister, Morocco – Listed Value $18.00

This style of painted ceramics pops up a lot in this box. I love the pumpkin color of this particular piece—it’s perfect for fall, but it also just feels really sunny and fun in my kitchen. It’s 6″ tall, so it doesn’t take up a ton of space either.

Globe In Bake 1 cup measuring spoon

Ceramic Measuring Cup, Tunisia – Listed Value $18.00

I wish I’d gotten an entire set of measuring cups because I think this ceramic cup is so cute! It coordinates with the sugar canister nicely. It’s stylish enough to keep on my counter, rather than in the drawer.

Stainless Steel Measuring Spoons, India – Listed Value $12.00

My current measuring spoon set is plain plastic—this set feels a little more sophisticated. I love that they’re all on a handy little ring, too.

Globe In Bake mortar and pestle bowl

Globe In Bake gray bowl

Enamel Mixing Bowl, India – Listed Value $15.00

This 8″ bowl is a little noisy to mix things up in since it’s made from stainless steel coated in enamel. But it’s great for prepping small dishes—I can see using it for breakfasts like scrambling up eggs and making protein pancakes.

Olive Wood French Rolling Pin, Tunisia – Listed Value $20.00

Yay! I don’t have a rolling pin, so this is a welcome addition to my kitchen! This rolling pin is nice because there are no hard edges to it—you can just roll in different directions without worrying that the edge will dig into the dough. I love the natural look of the wood, too!

Bonus: Luna Rica Bar, 1.41 oz. – Retail Value $1.99

There’s a bonus snack in this month’s box, too! This peanut-butter-filled bar was soooo yummy! It was a great sweet treat to enjoy mid-afternoon. It satisfies that Reese’s-loving part of my palate without me having to eat a million not-so-good-for-me peanut butter cups, haha!

The Verdict: I loved this month’s GlobeIn box! It gave my kitchen a little upgrade before holiday season hits. I think it’s so cute that they included a sweet treat and a yummy recipe to try in the box, too—those thoughtful touches bring the theme of the box to life. The quality of the items and the hand-crafted uniqueness make it feel even more special, too. I feel good having these fair trade pieces as showpieces in my kitchen.

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? No. Subscribers have between the 1st and the 10th of the month to pick their box.

  1. I love this box, it is always so nice! My fav was Nona’s Kitchen a year or so ago ( I think was the name). The noodles were fantastic. I wish there were more “kitchen” type boxes. Not in my budget at the moment but at the top of my list. Well done!

  2. I don’t love how they put just one of a set of something in the box. Looks like that was done multiple times here.

    • You can always take out of the box things you don’t like and substitute them with something else! I do that all the time.

      To do that, before the 10th of the month, go in to your account page. instead of clicking on the advertised box, click on the option that looks like a raffle ticket/ old movie ticket. That will give you credits equal to the cost of the box that you can use to choose the items on the rest of the page that you want. They usually list all the items they put in the box so that you can select them separately.

      I’ve been much happier with my sub since I found out about the option. There are always other things I’m interested in to use in place of any I don’t want.

  3. I bought two more for Christmas gifts! The rolling pin was smaller then I had judged by photos and my one cup was washed out in color. I still like the box!

  4. Mine hasn’t arrived in the mail yet, but I am so excited for the olive wood rolling pin! I don’t have one yet and I’ve almost bought similar ones so many times. I also really splurged with the add-ons and got an amazing rosewood cookbook stand and elephant planter to make the $90 needed to get a bonus mystery box. The planter came in the mail today and was well-packed and very nice. That one will be a gift – I have to decide whether to gift without a plant or go pick a plant for it (probably a little succulent or something easy to keep alive.)

    I might end up using the sugar canister to store tea, and it sounds like it is a great size to display!

    • The canister is beautiful, but isn’t airtight so probably not the best for tea! I actually put a bag of loose leaf tea which zips closed in it, so I get to enjoy the pretty container and also keep my tea fresh.

      • I was planning to put it in a zip lock bag first or something, but I like the idea of just putting in some of my loose leaf bags with zip or fold seals! (Plus, my toddler recently dumped two canisters of my favorite tea out all over the counter – so maybe safer to bag them!)

  5. I want that rolling pin!

  6. I’m so regretting not getting this – it looks incredible!

    If anyone has a rolling pin they want to trade, I would love to swap for one and would gladly over swap for it! (My profile should be linked above)

    • They often have previous boxes as options to choose as your monthly theme (if you want to sub now it’s likely not too late to get it) or they will offer it for individual sale in their online shop (at a higher price). Sometimes they do sell out of boxes but if it is a popular theme they try to restock. You might be able to get the rolling pin in the store too. Keep an eye out.

    • The info in the article is incorrect.

      There is still plenty of time to get this box! Subscribers have until the 10th of each month to make their selection. It currently says on their website re: new subscribers that

      “First box will be shipped by Nov 21 2018”.

      Note: There are two ways to get the box. If you only want this box (and not a sub) you can buy the box in their shop for $60. Alternately, you can save $20 by signing up for a month to month sub and then cancelling after box 1.

      Just to be safe, if you do sub, I would include a note in the order (or send a separate email) specifying you want the bake box just to be sure they do t start you with an older box.

  7. I love that rolling pin!

  8. So disappointed this month. I was suppose to get this bake box but got something different the savior box 😡 and I bought add ons and they sent me the wrong color canister that I got to go with the bake box. Then when I reached out I had a very rude CS person who basically told me it was my fault and I can pay to send everything back 😲 Seriously? I won’t be purchasing from this company again that’s for sure

    • That’s too bad. Were you a new subscriber last month? I know there has been alot of confusion because despite the new themes being profiled every month the monthly box selection in your account defaults to “surprise” which can be any available theme. So if you want to make sure you get the new theme you do have to manually go in and change your selection. Maybe that’s what they meant was “your fault.” But your add on being the wrong color does seem like an issue on their end. And they do ask for incorrect items to be returned since it is fair trade/handmade items that are not mass produced or easy to replace. If you want to give them another chance or anyone else has any issues or confusion I highly recommend joining the Globein Mavens Facebook group. You can post questions and other subscribers help answer, you get some good tips and Globein employees do post and help answer questions too. I think they have seen alot of growth recently and CS is a bit overloaded.
