“Why would I want my tequila fizzy?” a skeptical friend asked when we pulled out the DrinkMate during a recent weekend trip. She was making tequila cocktails, which called for sparkling water. Instead, we put all the ingredients in the DrinkMate’s bottle and started adding CO2. It’s not something you’d necessarily want to do with every cocktail, but it does give some drinks a bit more sparkle than just adding some soda water. You’ll still want to add plain water to the mix; otherwise your cocktail turns into a fizzy shot. … [Read more...] about DrinkMate Carbonated Soda Maker review

Once heated, a simple press of the button with the small or large cup symbol begins the brew process for either a single or double (Lungo) espresso. It’s worth pointing out that while the drip tray is installed, only a small espresso mug or cup is capable of fitting underneath the machine.

The Maytag boasts a capacity of 4.7 cubic feet and measures 42 by 27.5 by 27 inches (height, width, depth).

Inside the drum is an agitator, a feature missing from high-efficiency top-loaders. … [Read more...] about Maytag MVWB765FW Top Load Washer review
It’s unclear when official repair centers will resume operations. Luckily for you, the majority of tech companies such as Samsung and Apple have extended warranties across the board and, hopefully, the people who are stuck with broken devices will be able to find a solution soon. This situation also serves as a stark reminder to why right-to-repair legislation could be essential, both for customers and the environment, since it would allow people to fix their own gadgets. However, with giants like Apple lobbying against it, it remains to be seen whether such a law will ever go into effect broadly. … [Read more...] about What happens if your Apple products break during the coronavirus pandemic?
If you are stuck at home and bored, it may be time to buy a new video game counsel. The Nintendo Switch, like many Nintendo innovations, was met with skepticism when it was first announced, but since its release, the dual-screen home gaming console has proven to be a home run for Japan’s most iconic gaming company.
