Hi Kris! You have lots of options since this is your friend's first place. How about pairing a Dutch oven with a subscription to a fun food magazine like Lucky Peach? She'll use the Dutch oven all the time, and she'll think of you every few months when the magazine comes. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00…
Hey guys! Okay - I need a gift for my girlfriend's mother and father each. :) Nothing horribly expensive, but her Dad is into cooking (not so much because he's a foodie, but because he thinks it's a lot of fun), and her Mom is spiritual (alt religions, if you catch my drift) and loves to read. Trying to think of…
The Belkin WeMo is probably a great place to start for simple stuff. What exactly in the home audio sector are you looking to automate?
I have two younger sisters who are totally into trying archery since watching the Hunger Games movies & Brave. If you think she'd be into that sort of thing, I'd suggest a toy bow & arrow, like the Nerf Rebelle (or alternatives like the "Zing Air Huntress"). You can search Amazon for reviews and Youtube for videos.
Alright y'all. I need something really super cool for my 9 year old niece. She's at that age where I have NO idea what she's into (except horses and Japanese culture - I already bought her a collection of "squishy charms"). What's something that solidifies me as "coolest aunt ever" and doesn't cost a fortune?
I need a gift for my father, the cyclist who has everything. Can you think of a gift that a cyclist would like, but wouldn't necessarily be something they'd get stocking up a new road bike?
I bought two Delonghi oil filled radiators a couple of winter's ago when the primary furnace fan died. Two of the upper end units maintained the house temp at 19deg F outside temp. They can heat large areas over time. They also produce dry heat. Perfect for winterized RVs.
I have some generic $30 oil heater hooked up to a Belkin WeMo. It seems legit, since the heater is on a crummy lamp cord to begin with. All the heat and timer I ever need!
why can't they just put a couple of rubber feet on those oil electric heaters. instead of those stupid wheels. while they are at it, put a handle on top.
My dyson hot works better than anything I've had before, aside from an old warehouse jet heater!
I like parabolic radiant electric heaters. No fan, so quiet and efficient, but also direct the heat toward you rather than up. Also, heat is felt immediately rather than the delay of heating oil first.
Are gas heaters still a thing? I've got a gas outlet in my bedroom that I would love to use since my apartment can't seem to handle two 1500w heaters going at the same time. (Roommate's room and mine.)
I have the Lasko and it's great for the bathroom. It warms the whole bathroom within a few minutes and is great for the chilly mornings. It actually is a bit too intense to have blow directly on you but it's inexpensive and a great value.
Be aware that different heaters in our test used different designs. Some were micathermic, and some used fans. So versus fan driven models, radiators were not also using juice to spin motors, so oil filled models were, in effect, more energy efficient than non oil filled versions. Not only in theory, but as tested and…
There are various forms of heating, some of which do not make 100% of the energy consumed available for use. For example, heating devices that rely on burning some type of fuel do not make 100% of the energy consumed available as useful heat. A portion of the energy is expelled through the devices' exhaust. Electric…
Why would heaters work best when kept on low for extended periods of time?
I've got a DeLonghi 750/1500W ceramic heater that works great. I got it two years ago at Sam's for about $37.
My little $35 Holmes is fantastic. It has a timer setting so if I want it to automatically kick in when I get up at 8:30 it will. No need to brave the cold outside my bedsheets first thing in the morning :)
