Everyone has to eat, right? Eating out is expensive and traditional cooking is time consuming. With Instant Pot, cooking time decreases, recipe variety increases and happiness (plus a full stomach) ensues. Sounds pretty good, I know. For those that are unaware, Instant Pot is a brand, as well as a product. They produce electronic multicookers that offer anywhere between six to ten different functions. Among the most common uses for these products are as a Pressure Cooker, Slow Cooker, Rice Cooker, Steamer and Yogurt Maker. While these are the most frequently seen, it is just the top of the iceberg for the variety of cooking an Instant Pot can handle. All-in-all, Instant Pot combines the two main steps of putting food on the table, preparation and cooking, into a single step using the same kitchen appliance.
Gaming computers: often touted as the superior way to play video games, bar none. There’s no denying that a computer designed for gaming can achieve better graphics, framerates, control and responsiveness than any other gaming platform. But despite all of these noteworthy advantages, there is one major drawback to a gaming PC compared to a console of any other nature: there’s a lot more required to help it reach its full potential.
Today, we’re taking an in-depth look at what makes a good kerosene space heater, why kerosene is a great alternative to central heat systems and what you need to know to make a purchase that will serve all of your needs. Most traditional kerosene heaters rely on a literal wick being lit at the center of the apparatus. The wick is mounted above the kerosene tank and when lit, burns the gas and turns it into heat. On each heater, there is a means of adjusting the height of the wick which controls output burning more kerosene and increasing heat output, or moving the wick in the opposite direction with contrasting effects. When you are done using the heater, the flame can be extinguished by fully retracting the wick into a chamber, which in a loose comparison is similar to placing a top on a candle to extinguish its flame. In part because of better technology, stronger kerosene space heaters do not rely on an open flame, but instead use electricity and convection to safely burn kerosene and other gases to provide heat. Instead of raising and lowering a flame, these advanced heaters have interfaces, sometimes digital, that easily allow users to control their space heater. A kerosene space heater is a mobile and affordable heating option. As anyone who lives in a cold climate knows, heating can get expensive in the winter. With a kerosene space heater, you are able to heat just a single room, rather than paying to heat an entire house at all times. Additionally, since the heater is mobile, output is concentrated in a small area meaning you’ll feel the effects almost immediately.

Gone are days of gramophones and record players projecting music for all to hear. Since leaving these antiquated instruments in the dust, we as a collective society have underwent a rapid and drastic transformation in the way we consume music over the last 30 or so years. From cassettes, to Walkman’s, to CD players, to iPods and now our cell phones, the one consistent with these devices are the use of headphones. Headphones have become as essential to one’s daily wardrobe as a watch or belt. For some, headphones are part of their identity, for others, the music that they are able to hear anywhere they go provides the ability to focus, pass time, or escape. Besides these marvelous benefits, the one that is most commonly overlooked is that when the earbuds are in, it acts as the international indicator for “don’t bother me”—regardless of whether music is playing or not.
How many of us have a tool box with nothing useful in it? Far too many, I’m sure. For those of you that do not frequent hardware stores, or even the home improvement section of Amazon, I’m happy to let you know that the power tools of today are affordable, intuitive and safe. The specific tool that we’re here to talk about today is the power drill. While it is not a jack of all trades, it is an essential contributor to nearly any building project that goes on in and around the home. I take definitions from Wikipedia, there’s no denying it. They provide information accurately and concisely. If you’re looking up information on an obscure political event or a once-famous person, you may want to check other sources, but for something like a power tool, it’s pretty safe. So, by definition, “a drill is a tool primarily used for making round holes or driving fasteners. It is fitted with a bit, either a drill or driver, depending on application, secured by a chuck. Drills vary widely in speed, power, and size.”
Kids take their vitamins. Adults take their coffee. You don’t ever age out of needing essential nutrients and vitamins, but you certainly age into coffee being a necessity to function. As Americans, we thrive on convenience. As hard as you try to convince yourself (and validate your ways), the most cost and time effective way to get your morning caffeine fix is by brewing a pot in your home. When you buy a coffee maker that includes a grinder, you’re putting two appliances into one. Not only does it provide two critical functions for fresh coffee consumption, but it conserves counterspace, something we can never get enough of. When your coffee maker and grinder are one, freshly ground coffee beans are always on the table. Other than being able to tell your coworkers you only drink the freshest coffee, there are plenty of other benefits. The most important is taste. While there is nothing wrong with buying pre-ground coffee, grinding it right before it goes into your mug lets you channel every bit of flavor and oil into what you’re drinking.
A hairdryer, or blow dryer, is a device that produces cold or hot air and is designed to dry human hair, and in doing so, help to style said hair. While hair dryers provide temporary styling, the effects are just that, temporary, as the hydrogen bonds created by using a dryer on damp hair are broken once they come into contact with humidity or water—i.e. showering, swimming, etc.
Burning candles around your home can be a wonderful way to create a relaxing and inviting atmosphere once you are home from work after a long day or just coming back from a big event on the weekend. But if being environmentally conscious is important to you, then burning candles that use artificial ingredients for the wax and the wick may not be worth it.

Do you spend more time indoors than you do outdoors? Probably—and because of this, you need to be conscious of the air you are breathing, air which you can control the quality of. With a bevy of potential pollutants such as dust, pet dander, smoke (fireplace or personal use), cooking emissions, mold, pollen and plenty of others, the air in your home can be more harmful than you think. Digging deeper, these hidden horrors stay in your home, trapped by windows, walls and general stagnation. Thanks to modern technology and increased awareness of what’s happening in the environment around us, a market for air purification has developed. While at first glance, everything might seem fantastic with every air purifier, it is buyer beware as not all systems have the same, or even adequate capabilities.
