Testing a Gadget: The Pogo Whisk

In this video, I try to build up my forearms like Popeye by using the Pogo Whisk. This whisk turns four times for every pump of the handle, making it possible to whisk eggs at a superhuman speed. Does it work? Watch to find out!

Testing a Gadget: The My Pint Ice Cream Maker from Dash

You scream! I scream! Ok, now let’s use our inside voices or we’re not going to get any ice cream!

In this video, I test out a pint sized ice cream maker from Dash.

Here’s the recipe I tried:

Coffee Sorbet
3 Tablespoons honey
2 Tablespoons cocoa powder
1/4 Teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup coffee (or 1/2 cup of water and 1 heaping tablespoon of instant coffee)
1/2 Teaspoon coffee liqueur (I used Kahlua)

Testing a lifehack and gadget: Easy to peel hard boiled eggs

In this episode, I’m testing different ways of making hardboiled eggs easier to peel, and I’m trying out a color changing boiled egg timer. For the first test, I poked a small hole in the bottom of two eggs before boiling. For the second test, I added two tablespoons to the water before boiling. I purchased the egg timer at Poundland when visiting London in 2013, but I have seen them in dollar stores and on Amazon in the US.

Bonus video: 14 minutes of egg boiling condensed to 2.5 minutes. I find it oddly mesmerizing, and you can really see the Egg Timer work its magic.
