Debra - The Blind Kitchen ,

WayAround tags are an ESSENTIAL tool in The Blind Kitchen!

I use WayAround tags in several applications in both my personal and professional kitchens and they are the ONLY labels in my freezers. I also have more than 30 assorted color chef coats and WayAround buttons allow me to quickly and easily select the one I am looking for independently. I like the system of tagging so much that one is included in the first Blind Kitchen Collection. I want people to know how much easier their lives could be if they decided to use the WayAroundsystem.

Amazing tool for a visually impaired and blind :-)

I absolutely love these tags! I love to cook and have cooked for 40 years plus. I have organized my kitchen including my pantry, freezer and cupboards :-) these tags make it so simple to identify the products I need without having to ask someone else. I am a very independent person and very self-sufficient. With the way around life is so much simpler :-) thank you so much for your wonderful product you have been a godsend! I would highly recommend these to anyone who is visually impaired or blind to help
them organize their life!

Amazing product

I am not visually impaired and use it to label my houseplants with all of its specific care requirements. This is an amazing concept but it can use some updates to make it even more amazing. Customer service is fantastic. Darwin helped me through the process of using the product and provided exceptional service. Again, the app can use some changes to make it even better but I’m pleased for now. Highly recommend for any user.
