Here at Food Shark Marfa, our team of food and home enthusiasts review products for inside and outside the home; from every day or specialty foods, to kitchen and home gadgets or appliances and everything in between!
Reviewing a wide range of bestselling items to suit all needs and budgets, we also provide you with our best pick and budget pick choices based on the findings from our research to further help you to make your choice.
Our pages also host culinary insights, whether you want a food substitute as you’re missing a key ingredient for your recipe or want to know how to use some of those more obscure vegetables available at the farmers market. Our ‘how to’ posts also talk you step-by-step through a range of food preparation tasks - from the everyday to the more unusual.
Food Shark Marfa is run by a team of enthusiastic and expert writers with passions and interests across the spectrum.
We prefer to review products that most us use or consume regularly, as well as some of the newer products coming onto the market. We also try to look at products and gadgets that can help make life that little bit easier.
As much as we would love to be able to buy everything we review, unfortunately, our homes (and wallets) are just not big enough! Any products that we do test will always be put through rigorous home testing.
There are companies who contact us to undertake reviews of their products, but we will only undertake reviews for products that are good quality and provided by companies with a solid reputation in the market.
We pride ourselves on our extensive research into selected products. As well as looking at key features of the products and identifying what we, as users, want from them, we also see what existing owners or users have to say - both good and bad – about them as we understand that however great a product may look, sound, or be, it may not work quite as well in the real world.
To help you further, we undertake in-depth research around the product niche as a whole. Our honest buying guides offer insights such as what you need to look for when selecting a new product, what you may need to buy alongside to get the most out of your new buy and even what can go wrong. We also offer lots of helpful tips, such as how to properly prepare a food or maintain a kitchen tool, as well as some basic troubleshooting to help you along the way.
For food items, we look at nutritional profiles and links with health and offer recipe ideas to help you make the most of your meals. We also look at issues such as food safety, ethical practices and sustainability along with any other concerns our buyers may have.
To ensure our information is as impartial and trusted as it can be, we draw information from many sources, such as research articles, university publications, non-profits, professional associations and organizations, national boards and councils, independent consumer reports and federal and state information sources such as the USDA, EPA and CDC. We also draw on widely circulated newspapers and other media sites that are considered trusted. We often link our research to our sources so you can read more if you wish.
At Food Shark Marfa, we pride ourselves on doing all the hard work so that you can just relax and make the most of your new purchase.
