If you’re like me, you think kitchen appliances are boring. Luckily, we live in the age of technology, and it’s easier than ever to sci-fi the shit out of your kitchen! Here’s my dream geek kitchen.

Breville BTM800XL One-Touch Tea Maker

I own this tea maker for around two years now, and I swear by it! You put in the tea, click a few buttons and forget it until it beeps when tea is done.

No mess, easy to clean, and the coolest part about it is the automatic basket, which lowers into hot woter for the required amount of time, so your tea will always be done perfectly by the book.

Programmable! The best feature.

I received the tea maker yesterday. Washed with the cleaner first, then also repeated washing with baking soda, and the smell which some reviewers complain about was gone. Baking soda is the best cleaner ever.

Experimented with different kinds of tea.
So far I can't say that the tea taste is better than made in traditional kettle, but it's easier to use this tea maker.
I programmed this maker yesterday night, and perfectly fresh tea waited for me at the kitchen when I woke up today. It's priceless! I absolutely love that.
I wish my espresso machine could be the same way.

Here is the picture from today, with tea almost gone already. Although I'm coffee lover, morning cup of tea was very nice to start my day.

This is a great tea maker

This is a great tea maker, but costs more than I think it's worth. I would have purchased a cheaper model if I could have found one that automatically starts in the morning. That's the only feature that sets this one apart from the others.

A lot if people complain about the plastic on the basket, buts it's only on the rim and the basket kid so it's plenty sturdy and never touches the tea. I don't have any issues with this.

Quite expensive but works fairly well.

Cooking stuff takes forever? Not with a pressure cooker. It produces healthy food, saves your time, saves energy, and probably reverses the global warming too, I wouldn’t be surprised.

A kitchen appliance that needs you to log into facebook

Weeell. This _was_ an amazing cooker. I mean, it was it did was it was supposed to do.: It cooked things. It was a kitchen appliance. Life moved on.

Then Anova pushed an update to their app that requires you to pair your kitchen appliance with your facebook profile. I'm not kidding here. You need to link your facebook account in order to use your kitchen appliance. I mean, i'm looking at my blender and my pressure cooker and they seem to work fine without needing access to my social network.

I just want to heat up water to cook things.

Bait and switch

I returned the item because Anova updated the phone app to force you to buy Wifi access. My model was bluetooth only and I could no longer control the device via the app. Plus, my model didn't come with Wifi Access, so I was forced to use the manual control. When I purchased the item, I had full control from the app, as it was advertized. This was a complete bait and switch. The worst part is, I now have angry friends and family who bought one on my word that it was a good product.

The App now requires a login just to cook a meal!

Anova changed the app to require a login just to cook a meal. They are apparently more interested in mining data than pleasing their customers. I bought the Bluetooth version so I could monitor it, but now the app requires a login, and I object to logging in just to monitor this expensive device. I can't recommend it any more. Would give it ZERO STARS if possible!

Love my NutriChef Bluetooth bbq thermometer

Love my NutriChef Bluetooth bbq thermometer. The app is simple to download and use. Set-up of the device is a breeze and being able to constantly monitor the temp from my phone is a huge advantage over other models I’ve seen. It works just as advertised! I cooked a turkey for Thanksgiving and it really saved my bird. My Big Green Egg cooked the bird faster than I expected by an hour. Had I left in there any longer and ignored the temp alarm, we would have been eating turkey jerky! Initially I didn’t believe it was done and checked it against my old school meat thermometer. It was dead on. For the price, this is a great value and worth every penny!

Fun to play with. Company has great customer service. Volume issues.

This plant pot is a lot of fun. My daughter enjoys connecting to her phone via bluetooth, and having it light up and play music when touched is enjoyable. The only thing that would make it better would be a volume control. The volume when you touch it is loud, and when connected to bluetooth, it isn't loud enough. The company was super easy to work with. The first one I ordered didn't work, and they were extremely helpful in getting me a replacement pot.

Highly recommend

Fortunately, we have not had to use these in a fire. But, in testing these alarms, they were loud and clearly would awaken anyone in the house. We placed 1 in long kitchen, 1 in combination den, 1 in hallway leading to 4 bedrooms, and 1 in Master Bedroom. My husband is tone deaf in 1 ear and couldn't hear our other system because it had a loud squealing tone. This has a loud, but lower tone, that he can easily hear very well. The tone is actually the same pitch used in more sophisticated security systems. The way the first detector sets off the others is very beneficial in alarming everyone in the house should a fire break out anywhere In the house. I highly recommend this system.

the process was easy and simple

Hooked them all up. For those griping about connecting them, READ the instructions. Not complicated, and I only had restart one detector once. After that, the process was easy and simple. I will update in a few months if need be. I like how they interconnect. I am using these for all bedrooms in the house.

We have just finished a remodel on our upstairs. These smoke detectors were the last thing to be installed, and I love how they are all connected wirelessly. No matter where something happens, we will know in each of our bedrooms. What a blessing.

Would go with a cheaper unit

We bought this microwave due to the favorable reviews on line, thought that it would be a good investment to spend a little more and get a quality microwave. For the price the components are not of the highest quality, very little actual stainless steel on the unit, its just painted metal that scratches easily. After just under two years it broke. Microwave turns on but does not heat food. I am told it is not fixable without excessive cost. Was put on hold with customer service for long time, eventually gave up. Would not buy it again.

The microwave was very cute and took good care of my husband and I

The microwave was very cute and took good care of my husband and I, but after about 1 year and 2 months the words are starting to disappear on the function buttons. They are not stickers, I'm wondering if it's just ink that they use. I never use anything but water and a washcloth to wipe it down with. I've used microwave ovens for 40 years- since they first came out, and I have never had this happen. It's in a brand new modern remodeled kitchen and shouldn't look like this after 14 months of occasional use.

Fantastic Microwave Oven

This an impressive microwave. The styling and overall quality is a cut above the competition. Although the controls of the Breville are vastly different from the old microwave oven that it was replacing, they are intuitive and very easy to master.
The price for the Breville was more than other models that were considered but I believe that the premium was money well spent.

Finally, a Toaster that Works Properly! Love the Leverless Feature. Buy One!

Finally! After two grossly inferior toasters, this one seems to work properly. I wasn't sure I'd like the leverless feature, but it's great. Settings #6 and #7 are too dark for my taste, but the others are fine. In the photo, setting #1 is in the upper left, #7 in the lower right.

this mug is pretty small. Its a really fun idea

Compared to most mugs you find in stores right now, this mug is pretty small. Its a really fun idea, the gauge worked well when a hot liquid was poured in. We made sure to hand wash every time it was used, but it took no time for the sticker to start peeling off. Once it began it wasn't long before we had a plain white mug.

Fun while it lasted and the mug construction was fine, but I wouldn't buy it again.

Awesome, but small in stature

This mug is awesome. I got it for my dad as a christmas present because he's a big coffee/tea drinker. He was initially a little wary of the fact that it's about 10%-20% smaller than a regular mug, but he got over that pretty quickly once he loaded it up the first time and watched the fuel gauge rise.

It's a unique, amusing, and fully usable mug, just be aware that it's slightly smaller than a regular coffee mug so you'll be drinking a lot more cups than you're used to to get the same volume of liquid.

Update 1/17/13:

I am subtracting 1 star from my previous review. It is important to note that this item is NOT dishwasher safe. After several rounds in the dishwasher the "fuel gauge" started to peel off, and now this cup is just a plain white mug that is slightly smaller than other mugs in the cabinet.

A word to the wise: Don't put this thing in the dishwasher or scrub it too vigorously in hot water.

No Quality Control

This is a cute idea - heat sensitive indicators that change color indicating liquid level. Unfortunately, it appears that "Fred" is simply buying white mugs and stenciling the rest, i.e. the graphics is not fired and permanent. I got four mugs, and in all cases the graphics peeled off after a few washes. So I have four plain white mugs now. Even the manufacturer's logo on the bottom is gone, leaving no clue about the mug's beginnings.

Best auto pour over coffee machine

Amazing control over your auto pour over coffee. This is the machine you want. No problems whatsoever connecting/reconnecting to network, and the coffee it produces is just as good or better than your local coffee shop’s. It does take 12-15 minutes to make a pot, but the coffee is better because you can bloom fresh ground beans up to 3 minutes which really makes a difference if they are of good quality. The ability to change your temp/bloom time and stainless reservoir is what puts this unit on the map, the IoT/app control is just cherry on the top.

It makes a great cup of coffee

I had quite a bit of trouble getting the app to work as the firmware needed to be updated... After many tries and about to give up it worked.
First of all the most important thing.. It makes a great cup of coffee.. Pre-Soak for 45 seconds and set the temperature to 203. Using Kobirck beans I have a big time cup of coffee. SO the few times I will lay in bed and ground the coffee the night before it is great.

2nd very easy to customize the quick start button for the majority of times I will just manually start it. Congrats to Behmor for being innovative yet making a great cup of coffee..
