The Bag Holder. Review.

I’d like to start this review off by saying that I am REALLY late posting it and sending my sincerest apologies to Kara Anderson, inventor of The Bag Holder.

Now, on to the review. When I first received my Bag Holder, I wasn’t too sure it was going to be of any benefit in the kitchen. But let me just say, I was WRONG! This thing rocks in so many ways!!! Not only can you use it to hold a bag for mixing messy ingredients like meatloaf fixings but you can use it to fill a zip top back with icing to use as an icing bag, mix banana pudding, as a garbage bowl while cooking, etc. There are so many uses. The first use I am going to show you is breaded chicken.

Sometimes I use Panko crumbs and a large gallon size bag and sometimes I use the store bought breading that comes with a shaker bag. The problem with that is, the bag is never big enough and I usually end up dumping most of my breading on the counter when trying to fill it. In steps this awesome Bag Holder. It hold a gallon size storage bag/freezer bag. So I put the bag on the holder, added my store bought breading, jazzed it up a little with extra seasonings, added my chicken and proceeded to mix it all up then bake. Photos below:

Ok, it worked BEAUTIFULLY for those gigantic Zaycon chicken breasts. You can see above how easy it was to coat every one of them and then add them to my baking pan.

Another recipe I used my Bag Holder for was banana pudding but I had company coming, got sidetracked and totally forgot to take photos. Here is how I made it though.
Semi-Homemade Banana Pudding:

  • One 5 oz package instant vanilla pudding
  • 2 cups cold milk
  • One 14 oz can sweetened condensed milk
  • One tablespoon vanilla extract
  • One container whipped topping (thawed)
  • One box (16 oz) vanilla wafer cookies.
  • 4 – 6 bananas sliced (more if you love lots of bananas like my family)

Normally you do this in a large mixing bowl, but we are going to use the Bag Holder.
Here’s what you do:
Place your gallon bag on your bag holder.
Inside bag:

  1. Mix pudding mix and milk with a whisk for approximately 2 minutes or until smooth.
  2. Blend in condensed milk, until smooth.
  3. Stir in vanilla.
  4. Fold in whipped topping until well mixed.

In glass trifle bowl OR 13×9 inch glass baking dish:

  1. Layer wafers, bananas and pudding mixture.
  2. Top with vanilla wafers
  3. Chill until ready to serve.
  4. Watch everyone gobble til they wobble! :D
Again, the Bag Holder was perfect for making this recipe. You might think using a whisk in a bag wouldn’t work but it totally does. And when I was done, I only had the whisk, tablespoon and a rubber spatula to wash.
I also use it to pour beans into a freezer bag for storing in the refrigerator each week. It saves so much room!

So, according to Kara, you can use this neat little invention to make, store, pour, blend, pipe, fill, marinate, mix, transfer,wash and reuse bags and even reheat or melt using the holder by adding one cup of water placed in the holder then the bag to heat and op in the microwave, this can minimize the steps and eliminate dishes. You can also use it to help place cereal into large zip bags for better storage. I ca’t wait to do ALL of that! Hubby and I are on a mission this week to see what other ways it will help us in the kitchen. I’m so excited to be able to say I am the proud owner of a Bag Holder. And I am the first to admit that I never imagined something so simple could save me so much time and effort!
