Cornstarch with No Mess!

I have a new favorite product!

I have been making this stir-fry recipe for more than 12 years. And for more than 12 years, every time I made it I had a mess on my kitchen counter. Every time I measured out the cornstarch it made a mess all over the counter. I tried several different brands with a varitey of packaging - it didn't matter. I still had a mess. The closer I got to using up a box or container of cornstarch, the bigger the mess. There just didn't seem to be any way to get a spoon of any type into the container and back out with the cornstarch without ending up with cornstarch everywhere. Very frustrating.

But no more. I have discovered the wonders of the new Argo Cornstarch container. I was nearing the end of one container, so about a month ago I bought a new container when it was on sale and I had a coupon. I finally opened it this week and have used it several times already.

Let me just say -- "I love this new container!" I managed to make my family's favorite stir-fry without having cornstarch all over the counters and floor. It's wonderful. If cornstarch is on your grocery list. I strongly recommend this.

And no, I didn't receive compensation of any kind for my use or admiration. I'm just very happy to now have a cornstarch container that doesn't leave me with another job to do.

i usually skip over recipes that call for cornstarch, but when i finally decide to grow up and be a big kid, i'll have to give this brand a try.

We don't use cornstarch all that much so it will be awhile before we run out. But that new container does look better. I will give it a try.

I use cornstarch a lot and have the same problem. This looks much better.

Isn't it amazing how much difference a container can make. I feel the same way about so many products.

I haven't seen the new container yet, but it looks like it would hold up a lot better than the box.

Happy TILT!

I would appreciate it if you would help me spread the word on my giveaway. It is for cloth diapers handmade here in the USA by a WAHM.

I have the same issue with cornstarch, but unfortunately I just bought a new box! I don't use it that often, but I'll have to try to remember this tip for the next time I need some.
