GlobeIn “Bakers Box” Review

 

Rectangular Baker Dish, Morocco – Retail Value $45.00

Measurements: 12″ W x 8.5″ L x 2.5″ H.

Materials: Ceramic

I thought this dish was charming the moment I saw it. While I am not typically drawn to red, I can’t help but think this dish is so festive for the holidays without going overboard. I wish the beautiful designs had been on the outside of it somehow too, as they are usually covered with whatever I am baking, but the whole thing still is adorable. It also feels sturdy and well made. As someone who usually has clear glass baking dishes, this is a welcome addition to my kitchen!

 

Felt Pom Pom Trivet, Nepal – Retail Value $28.00

Measurements: 8.8″ D x 1″ H.

Materials: Felted Wool

These looked like straight-up meatballs to me at first! But in a good way. This effect is from the woolen balls being dyed in a red to orange ombre style. We have been using the same trivets in my kitchen for years. Literally they are ones I knitted in college! So we are way overdue for an upgrade or three. Again, my kitchen is a lot more neutral in terms of colors than this or the baking dish, but I kind of like adding a little rustic brick red for the fall.

Cute!

 

Golden Corn Bread Mix, 3 oz (makes approximately 16 slices) – Retail Value $10.00

I am Southern, so cornbread is just a regular on my table, just as it was when I was growing up! I am always a little bit skeptical about any mix other than my mom’s favorite blue and white box, but I decided to give this a try anyway. The mix felt more granular than my regular go-to, and the end effect was a little more rustic. It also wasn’t as sweet, which was ok, because I usually top my cornbread off with a scattering of super raw sugar anyways. It bakes up into a crunchy and sweet top layer than is addictive. My mom likes to mix in chilis with her cornbread, but I like to keep it simple, and this mix with a little sugar baked up perfectly. Just add butter!

The Verdict: The GlobeIn ‘Baker’s Box’ had a very fall feel to it. I think it was the red and orange colors and the fact that I always am baking heartier casseroles and dishes in the fall. True, this box felt a little pricy for what was inside, but I can’t deny that everything was well made and also delicious! It might have benefitted from a fourth item to feel like a better value. Maybe a coordinating spoon rest?

To Wrap Up:

I love natural/vegan beauty products, Korean skincare, unique jewelry, and weird candies from far away places. When I am not waiting for my next exciting box you can find me painting or taking photographs of interesting people. I never leave home without pug hair somewhere on my shirt and a bold lipstick on my smile.

  1. Globein has not existent customer service and the shipping delays are inexcusable. I regret subscribing and with not renew. I just got July’s box. I doubt August will come before mid-October and I’ll have to relentlessly beg for it to ship to even get it y then. Terrible experience.

    • Hi C,

      Thank you for this honest feedback and we want you to know that we are listening!

      We have recently hired additional Customer Support Representatives and are actively hiring more to assist with our response time and delays. Also, we are happy to announce that we are in the process of switching fulfillment centers! As GlobeIn continues to grow, we needed to find a new facility that can handle the additional monthly shipments in a more efficient manner with less damages. This move will tremendously improve shipping issues in the coming months! We expect to have your boxes out on time, prevent damages, and not have any missing items.

      We hope this helps explain how GlobeIn is working to improve as a company. If you have any additional questions or need assistance with your account, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us at [email protected].

      Thank you,
      The GlobeIn Team

  2. Your comment about the blue and white box made me smile, that was my grandmother’s favorite go to.

    • I might have to make some tonight! ♥️

  3. I’m not sure why MSA keeps reviewing this box? Obviously, there are MAJOR issues with the lack of boxes that PAYING customer’s have yet to receive as far as month’s back. I have been dealing for month’s to get a replacement for my APRIL box (the last of a 3 month sub) that miraculously sold out when I had it as my choice. This has been a struggle, ladies. A lot of back and forth, waiting for day’s in between emails for any response. Just keep emailing, ladies. I’m hoping that my situation has been resolved, but my order still hasn’t shipped yet. We will see. Please, MSA, stop reviewing companies who obviously have taken a lot of your readers’ money with zero in return. Sure, that baking dish is adorable, and I even love the trivet!! But there is 99.9% chance that paying customer’s would not be able to get our hands on this box!!

  4. Thank you to all you lovely ladies for your thoughtful responses. So sorry that some of you haven’t even received orders from since June! That is just NUTS! I had purchased a 3-month sub based off of the reviews I had seen on this site. I am definitely not going to renew once the 3 months are up!

  5. The casserole dish is really pretty. I agree that a matching spoon rest would have been perfect!

  6. Gawssakes this trivet is fugly. The 1970s look was bad in the 1970s and it’s bad now LOL!

    • Or you could just say it’s not your style and not insult those who think it’s cute??

      • I agree Brandy!
        Julia, a lot of us enjoy vintage style and crafty/quirky Items like this are very popular. Surely you can express your opinion without insulting the taste of others.

  7. Wow! I ordered two boxes from Globein in August and I haven’t received a single one yet….if my memory serves me correct; this box is one of the choices for September and here it is not even 10 days into September and it is up for review……I guess I have to have a large social media presence to get my boxes on time.

    • Hi Anita! GlobeIn sends us these for review. I sadly don’t have much control over the timing of deliveries. Sometimes they are early, sometimes later, but its always a surprise! We like to try and get the reviews up as soon as we can so readers can see if they want to snag a box or not for whatever month is up. I would def reach out to GlobeIn regarding the status of your shipments and I hope they arrive to you soon!

    • Anita, I would definitely contact GlobeIn. I tried to be patient and just wait for my order. I emailed at the end of the ordering month (May) and was told to expect the order in the first half of June. Toward the end of the next month (May order, emailed second half of June) I was told that my order wasn’t processed correctly and I would have to be refunded. Which I promptly was, to the company’s credit.

    • My August box JUST shipped. Well it says data received but they’re starting to pick up the pace again.

    • I’m still waiting for my box I order in June.

    • Anita, I am in the same boat! And I did contact Globein, they are useless. They sent me a video explaining how shipping works, like I haven’t been a subscriber for the last 6 months. You are right about social media presence… All the IG influencers have their boxes already.
