I like wisky but I prefer whisky.
That toasty thing works very well, but it is very dangerous. It is is difficult to use without touching the hot bit.
I also prefer Bernaise.
That mayonnaise maker is insane. It's just a whisk

6:35 So metal. Platinum and silicone are BOTH [primarily] metas. Platinum is the primary reason your catalytic converter works is a rare precious metal, and silicon (the main compenent of silicone) is what's running all of your electronic devices is primarily found in sand as SiO2. The reason it's microwave safe is because both act more like plastic glass than the metals when you cure them together as an epoxy BUT they *are* metal. Don't lie to the people. ;)

This is fantastic! So along with the microwave grill thing... How about a challenge to cook different meals in a typical office or dorm kitchen, where there's only a microwave. You could do different segments - breakfast - egg and bacon. Make a little steak on that grill thing. Boiling pasta for spaghetti dinner without it blowing up everywhere? Endless options and humor too.

My parents had a beer flute that would completely change the taste of the beer. I would happily drink things out of it that I would not drink out of the can. I've never been able to find another set.

Years ago I lived in a boarding house with just a microwave and ended up spending a fair amount of money on take away foods. I just checked EBay and ceramic microwave grillers are much cheaper and would pay for itself giving me more options for the food I ate.

For me, the mayonnaise maker, is probably the best buy we have made, at my work-place. I work with physical disabled kids, and they can make mayonnaise with that. It's healthier and better and cheaper than buying premade mayonnaise, and it's a great value to the kids to take part ind the cooking. It IS one dimensionelle, but for our kids, that's a huge advantage, as the kids never looses focus when working with it. Ace product for us :-)

First off, DON'T ICE THE WHISKEY. If you need to ice the whiskey just get yourself a friendlier type of whiskey. Depending on the whiskey temperature will change the flavor of the whiskey not to mention the amount of water that gets melted.

OMG, the description for the black whiskey glass. You know that was written by some guy in a too-tight fitting blazer, with his manbun and beard neatly groomed, while sipping a select bean roast in some coffee shop in Shoreditch.

If they do another one of these, they should review the Mitsubishi bread oven TO-ST1-T. Basically it's a one slice toast grill (from Asia) costing £210.

That whiskey glass does one thing wrong: You can't see the colour of the whiskey, which is the first step of tasting whiskey (or rum or wine or beer etc.)

So many kitchen gadgets are not needed, kinda cool, fun, but all gets overriden by the need to wash all the little bits for not much use. I’m sure lots of these fun things we buy but never use would get used if we all had a dishwasher. But there will also always be those gadgets that are so useless and just make more trouble than they’re worth anyway.

Don't worry, you fucked up the whiskey anyway by putting this huge chunk of ice in there. Doesn't really matter what glass you're drinking it from.

The interesting question about that glass at the end: Does the color really make the difference or is it the shape? I could get behind the glass shape affecting how the fluid in it waves around, giving a better air-fluid-mixture, perhaps more or less alcohol evaporating, something like that, but... the light being reflected? So what? Or did I misinterpret what they were saying? But honestly, the description is so ridiculously over-the-top you really have to keep the packaging, too.

Are they surprised that a ceramic plate based on platinum and silica would be that expensive? Come one, ceramics are already expensive, a purpose-made fruit of materials science could only be that much more.

Drinking Hakushu - "You gonna be spendin' about 50-60 quid a pop for a bottle...". Mate, you just had one of the stupidly expensive bottles of whisky (in the group of the stuff that is easily commercially available, there are of course much more expensive bottles out there).

Wish this was newer since I know this comments gonna get buried. But for the whiskey, you put a tulip style glass against a rocks glass. Liquor fumes will naturally collect in a glass with a narrower top than the middle or base (Hence, a tulip glass. Glencairn is a popular choice). This allows you to smell the nose better (and when it comes to taste, most if it is through your nose). So it's pretty obvious the black glass would beat the regular cup. Try it against another tulip and you'll probably taste no difference.
