  • I watched a video about the ninja pan and have since been watching almost all of the videos on this channel. I have no idea why. I love this guy’s energy and how he really thinks outside the box to test out these things I’ve always wondered about, but wasn’t a sucker enough to buy myself. This dude really needs to have some products of his own. I’d probably buy them though because he’s honest.

  • And I'll bet that can of "expired" tomatoes was still just fine. Food manufacturers love it when people through out "expired" canned goods because they will more than likely run down to the Supermarket and buy more to replace them! Most canned goods will last years beyond the "expitation" date on the can.

  • The most popular size is the one that bits a mason jar so, they took those out of the assorted lids and sell them separately while not telling you that the small one in the assorted is too big. So, they sell useless ones for good money and the mason jar ones for REALLY good money. It's just like multipacks of anything else. You get some that work and some that don't - i.e. garbage. So you pay extra for one that works and they get rid of their garbage. People think it's a Chinese trick but all of China's tricks, they learned from US capitalists so, you can't really blame them except for their extremely poor electrical and electronic assemblies. You just have to plan on fixing them when you get them. BEFORE they heat up, melt and/or catch fire.

  • Zip Slicer: By the time you load it and awkwardly slice your food with it you could've just cut them with a regular knife. Egg Poacher: Hmm. 🤔 Uni-Lid: $10 for three rubber bowl condoms that will get moldy and reek in a month. What's wrong with plastic wrap or foil? Chef Wizard: A pair of tongs with the grip strength of an arcade claw machine. Utensil Rest XL: How many different utensils are you using at once? Just use a doubled up paper plate or small dish. If you're done and your utensils are dirty they should be in the sink.

  • I bought a set of 10 silicone stretch lids on amazon for $8 minus the dial which looks worthless to me. Work great. I use old plastic lids from containers or products to rest my utensils on. Again, works great. And the slicer for $15...??? I could cut them with a knife just as easy. I would spend my money on more useful items like an OXO garlic peeler and my $5 garlic chopper from Walmart. Love your reviews.

    Mike BartonMike Bartonپیش 2 ماه
  • With that lid thing...they may not have wanted it to fit on soup cans because keeping some soups or sauces in tin can in fridge can cause harm. But also maybe they should have just made reusable bags. Just a thought. Good show. Peace y'all.

  • Utensil rest only takes some more valuable room on the counter. American have the weirdest habit to fill their countertop space with so much kitchen apparels that can be stored away until they need it. Such as kitchenAid mixer or (other brand) toaster, broiler, different kinds of spices, oils and garlic, and enormous jars of decorative marinated beans and god know what, and a pile of drying stack of dishes on a rack next to the sick although having a dishwasher. It never cease to amaze me to walk up to most of the beautiful houses I go to to see pure havoc in the kitchen and family room.

  • The zipslicer could do with a couple of inlays that you could slide in depending on the size of your grapes, one on each side, to narrow the tunnel and get the grapes or tomatoes to line up more in the center.

Much easier to clean that a ceramic one like my mom has, and I like that we can put multiple utensils in one area instead of having them all over the counter.

  • After a number of fun hours watching your channel I thought the following: " I truly believe that a link is broken between the inventor and the consumer.... from time to time I come up with an idea that would make my task a little easier.... to realize such invention not only takes time and effort and let's just say that my invention is that one that would make my life happier.... Unfortunately this is what most inventors think about along with the consumers... however where it goes wrong is that the company that assumes this next step Is usually too cheap to make it out of good material and the whole invention is now a disservice to the consumers and to finalize my point is what we end up with a simple let down... keep up your good work ...

  • I use a poach pod at least 3 days a week. Do not put oil or spray in the cups unless you want a fried egg! To get a truly poached egg, put a tablespoon or so of hot water in the cup before putting in the egg. They come out great. If they stick a little on the bottom, run a spoon around the cup -- it gets the egg out fine. they wash up beautifully. (If I wanted fried eggs, I'd use a pan.) They also work for melting butter, mug cakes and as prep bowls.

  • I like all your vids so far, take the time to talk about a product and showing how it works, and your personal thoughts on it, the price etc. Do what works best for you. i rather a longer vid with a good review than waste my time with a fast vid that dosent give enough information. I love the shades, i was thinking they looked expensive so i was surprised when you said something like $15. Your vids are more professional looking than mine. I could rerecord several times and like you i could end up using only a couple min after recording a few hrs. But i enjoy it and those who dont like my vids, well i ummm stopped forcing them to wafch. hahaha Kep up the great work

  • How is a person going to hate on another persons eye protection? Some people really need more going on in their lives if they are going to throw shade on shades. I would not personally wear them and that's mostly because I don't wear sunglasses as they irritate my face beyond reason. I am also just not into steampunk themed apparel. However I do think they look really good on James. For real they look good on him. I respect that he likes them and that they work for him. People let the man live his own life and just be happy. Go be miserable by yourself or better yet find purpose in your life. Edited for a single error I caught.
