Are You Over-Prepared For Your Football Party?

Honey! Where are the snacks? The snacks! The guys are going to be here any minute... and... oh God I'm so unprepared. Settle down, Gary. They're still going to like you even if you don't make guacamole with your special avocado masher. Won't they? WON'T THEY??

I know, right? I'm just surprised no one's commented about the glasses yet. ;)

I'm just hanging out, really.

I got those jars/glasses last time. They're pretty nice. Held by the stem, they keep your favorite beverage cool as the heat won't transfer from your hand.

The mortar and pestle are HUGE. I broke my last pestle (actually it was a dog, or a kid) so I thought this would be a good way to replace. The bowl is big enough for a cantaloupe. And the stone is rough, not smooth like a granite, so I'm worried that little pieces will chip off into my food.

I hate to be thought of as a "size queen", but I'm wondering just how big the cooking surface of the griddle is, and I'm also wondering about the dimensions of that apron. (And of the Egyptian cotton towels, but that's another Plus.)

Edit: from the Sharper Image site:
Length: 13.38 Inches
Width: 12.5
Height: 6.5 Inches
Weight: 16 Lbs

These are the overall dimensions of the item, but it looks like the griddle surface extends at least to the edges of the base unit, so I guess the L & W dimensions above are roughly equal to the size of the cooking surface. Let's see, if each pancake is 4" diam, how many can cook on a 12.5"x13.38" griddle?

So, there was ONE Martini Shaker? Just one?

Manufacturers will sometimes sell us an assortment of product that may include very limited stock of a few items. In other cases, we may have a few remaining items from previous sales.

While the quantity is limited, we do still want to pass these deals on to our customers. Plus deals will often have limited quantities so it's important to watch for them closely.

I'm just hanging out, really.

The Redneck glasses are cooler when they have a handle! But it won't stop me!

Perhaps you could salvage it by spending some time just rubbing them together while you watch TV etc.. eventually it will smooth, eventually

You're right you will get stone in anything you grind if you use it as is. You need to prime any mortar & pestle you buy unless you're buying it used. Grinding rice into rice flour will usually do the trick. Time, patience & one aching wrist later and it'll be all set to go.

Get some kids together and make a game out of it the way our elders used to con us into spinning the hand crank ice cream maker when they made home made ice cream "for fun".

Martinis should be stirred, not shaken, unless you are more interested in trying to be James Bond than in drinking the cocktail. Shaking dilutes the drink and makes the vermouth cloudy.

They should also have enough vermouth in them to taste. If you want to drink straight gin just do it.

Let me once again sing the praises of the jar opener. Got one the first time it was offered (I think) & I can't tell you how often I've thanked my lucky stars that I have it. I have arthritis, & when it's acting up, I might as well be six months old for all I can accomplish in the way of removing tops from jars. This has to be one of the happiest purchases I've made. If you have arthritis, you won't regret buying this one.

Can I say that I have something nearly identical, and it is one of the worst kitchen appliances I have ever owned. The plastic drip catchers often don't work properly or they melt when you are cooking on high temps. Proceed with caution.

I got that grill from Woot! more than a year ago, when it was sold (for about the same price) as a Cuisinart product. It did work very well, but after a few months of steady use the non-stick coating began to flake off and I was afraid to keep using it.

I treated the surfaces properly, never using metal utensils or harsh scrubbing.

One hint: NEVER buy one that has fixed, non-removable plates! Impossible to keep clean!

acpress.com Not cute, but useful.

HHmm, I've been trying to decide on a Molcajete.... granite or lava?

I also wonder why the Amazon list price for the exact same item (model number, manufacturer, etc.) is $29.99...

Any recommendations between granite and lava? I know the traditional molcajete's are lava.

I'm interested in the Sharper Image Super Grill #101122...but I can't find anything that says it will work with 220V.

The manual makes no remarks about the power input. Does anyone know if this will work with 220V?

The closest comment it has is the following: "Before use check that the voltage of wall outlet correspond to the one shown on the rating plate."

I love my lime green avocado tools - they are useful for more than just scooping and mashing avocados. Just use your imagination.

Ok, well, maybe not THAT part of your imagination ...

Wait. Martini shaker? That's a thing? How lazy can a person be, that they can't shake the shaker a few times. It pains me that this exists.

kitchen gadgets are a waste of money and space. you will probably never use the griddle/grill thingy unless you leave it out on the counter (which will get annoying). it is going to get buried in the cabinet behind your martini shaker, redneck winde glasses and lightweight backpacking tea kettle.

best bet is to get a cast iron stovetop griddle/grill like the one made by lodge. it's much easier to clean and you can store it wherever you store your cutting boards.

The last time these Jeff Foxworthy Glasses were offered I recommended them as great outdoor wine glasses because the screw tops stop all those nasty bugs from getting into your vino or brew [yes I use them for cerveza tambien]. Should they get chipped or cracked turn them into fly/wasp traps by poking holes in the lids and putting a mix of water and wine in the glass. The bugs smell the fruit, go in, drink, get blasted and drown when they fall into the mix. Happy outdoor drinking and hunting. DrJ48
