Carol already did a very helpful review that you can find HERE. She also made a great project that you can find HERE. So I will just be adding a few of my thoughts and ideas about the cartridge.
There are many images of kitchen appliances and tools all with a retro style. I particularly like this apron and telephone.
The farm and other animals could be used on lots of projects that are not kitchen related. I think the artwork is charming - just look at the turned up snout on that pig!
For those with a sweet tooth, there is a cupcake, a slice of cake and more cake!
There are two keypads full of pre-welded words - on their own and set into ovals. Most of the words a quite specific to cooking...
The recipe cards are set up in two rows - the top row is proportioned for 3 x 5 cards and the bottom for 4 x 6 cards. Just set your height at 3 or 4 and you will have perfectly sized cards for your recipe box each time you cut. There are also recipe card dividers with tiny symbols sized to fit on the tabs.
By using some Design Studio magic you can even adapt a few of the recipe card designs to create A2 notecards. This photo shows some cards that I made last month - here is a LINK to the post on my blog if you would like to read more about them.
When I first heard about this cartridge I thought it would be perfect for anyone making a recipe book or doing recipe page swaps with other scrapbookers. It turns out to have many other uses as well. I would like to try making a file box with all of the dividers to help organize the cards I have made but have not yet sent.
I tend to look at cartridges from a Design Studio perspective and like to see full cartridges where every feature set has a lot of variety. The shadow keys for the words in ovals take up two full keypads which seems like too much since I could adapt any oval to shadow my words. However, I had to step back and realize how convenient it is to have the exact size oval preset on the same key for the circled oval words when you are using the Cricut without a computer.
I think most Cricut users would enjoy this cartridge - particularly those that do a lot of cooking and recipe swaps. Even if you are not much of a cook, there are plenty of other ways to use the images on the cartridge, so take a good look what this cartridge has to offer.
