I got this as a Christmas present for my wife and regret it. Half the shipments were very late, and the product choices were often questionable. I was particularly puzzled by the box that included a jar of tomato sauce, a cheese slicer (something we already had in better quality) and a package of spaghetti. The vibe I was going for when I bought this for my wife was "pamper yourself" not "make me dinner". Whoops.
The theme was cute but a can of tomato sauce, a bag of spaghetti and a towel? The cheese grater and garlic press would have been more exciting if the quality had been better. I see them breaking upon the first use. The best part was the box.
I waited for the Spring box to be pictured because I can’t eat Italian food but didn’t I get that box anyway. The Italian box has spaghetti, sauce, garlic press and grater. Can’t imagine who would want this since most of us have these things and don’t use them. Was hoping for something personal and uplifting.
Nothing against the products on their own, I just wasn't expecting a box solely of cooking supplies.
Thank you for taking the time to review. Every month is a different theme, this month was A Taste of Italy, so the products were based on that theme. Next month is all about self care and getting ready for Spring, so it will include totally different products. I look forward to hearing your thoughts on future boxes!
Received the “Choose you!” box for February and I hate to have to say it but I was super disappointed. I was very excited after watching box reviews on YouTube and it was Valentines holiday so I was hoping it might be festive but I just felt like this box was not up to par compared to Étoile’s older boxes. It was my first box so it’s my first impression but from this box experience I just don’t feel that the products were worth the over $40 price or maybe they just weren’t my style.
