T-Fal Balanced Living 1-Liter Electric Kettle Review

T-Fal Balanced Living 1-Liter Electric Kettle Review

I use an electric kettle to make tea, Aeropress-style coffee, and heat up our mugs and coffee airpot. One thing I learned early in my tea-making career was that it’s important to use different temperatures for different teas. Delicate white tea needs a lower temperature, while herbal and black tea can take near-boiling temperatures. I […]

Starbucks You Complete Me

Starbucks You Complete Me

It’s rare that I find someone who shares my worldview as a gun-carrying gay rights activist. I can usually find folks who agree with one issue but not the other, and depending on how myopic they are we usually part ways right then and there. It is somewhat popular in Minnesota, my current state of […]

One Bag of Trash Per Week Challenge

One Bag of Trash Per Week Challenge

We have been concentrating on reducing our household waste for the last two months. There wasn’t a particular event that sparked our desire to be more “green,” although a conversation with my friend BigDubb about one-use plastic bags was definitely a big part of developing our household challenge: throw away only one bag of trash […]

Thermos Saves the Day – TWICE.

Thermos Saves the Day – TWICE.

Insulated container manufacturer Thermos scored two big victories to me yesterday. My friend BigDubb recently bought — like last Friday — a Sipp insulated travel mug from Thermos. On the first day of use, the button used to open and shut the lid broke, and BigDubb was unable to drink his beverage. It also kept […]

Zevro WM300 Indispensable SmartSpace Wall Mount Triple Dry-Food Dispenser Review

How to clean your Krups GVX coffee grinder

How to clean your Krups GVX coffee grinder

My review of the Krups GVX grinder is one of my more popular Gibberish articles about coffee, and it’s the top ranked video review on YouTube. The coffee grinder is an inexpensive flat burr grinder and can be found at Costco for about $30 before tax. However, the grinder has some design issues that may […]

Death by Caffeine

Death by Caffeine

In the past I’ve posted about fighting hordes of children, how well you’d survive in the zombie apocalypse, and taking on the elderly. Today we’re going to talk about something a little less probable: how much caffeine you’d have to consume to kill you. Death By Caffeine allows you calculate how much drip coffee, espresso, […]

Coffee Joulies(tm) Beverage Cooling Beans Review

Coffee Joulies(tm) Beverage Cooling Beans Review

Coffee Joulies are supposed to cool your coffee so you can drink it faster — and then keep it at that temperature. Unfortunately it’s not really better than just a plain ceramic mug, and may actually make the drink too cool if you like your beverages on the warmer side.

The Best and Worst Gibberish Gadgets of 2011

The Best and Worst Gibberish Gadgets of 2011

I wrote 67 reviews this year. The reviews were mostly based on gadgets, but I did a number of book and music reviews this year. I also reviewed a few services, including Amazon’s cloud-based MP3 service, and the Amazon Kindle Lending Library. I know I am a few days late, but I wanted to mention […]
