Nine “cups” equals nine shots. My wife and I prefer a double shot of espresso, so a four cup moka pot is just right.

Yeah, although the company is struggling due to a combination of cheap knock-offs and people upgrading to espresso machines or downgrading...

You could buy several of those sofa covers that showed up here on the weekend for your 50c.

It’s the same in Scandinavia. Parties with “Liberal” in their name are classical liberals (i.e. free market conservatives), rather...

Hardie Grant do domestic Australian printing. In fact, paperback printing is something that Australia has a decent local industry in.

This goes both ways. I have family and friends back in Mainland China, and any time I mention anything even approaching criticism of the...

Gutenberg has the Kindle Magic Catalog, which, once sent to your Kindle (or downloaded via the Kindle browser), will fetch the books, in...

This is convenient if you don’t have an IKEA nearby. I took a look at the LADDA batteries, but IKEA wants to charge $9 for delivery.

I generally use it to order from stores I already know and trust (and which don't price-jack), but with eBay discounts on top.

I've been using eBay Plus since it was launched. I have received a voucher on my one and only account every year (either automatic or to...

I just cancel every year, then they offer me a voucher roughly equivalent to the annual fee so I’ll come back.

Just because it’s not cane sugar doesn’t mean it makes any difference. Your body is basically going to treat it the same way. The only...

Carbon steel is a really cheap metal. There’s no need to fake it. These cheap mass-market woks are a piece of stamped carbon steel that...

Damn. I was just about to buy the Canon EOS RP +lens kit for $1799… then the price suddenly went up by $120 (after discount). It’s now...

Sure, that’s the better option. However, i bought a similar cheap wok about 20 years ago, when living in a regional area without much...
13/05/2021 - 11:42
These cheap woks are usually some form of carbon steel with a non-stick coating to protect it because it is unseasoned. The best thing you...

The PSU will struggle with any GPU that draws much more than about 40W (it’s only a 255W unit). Upgrading the PSU will require a bespoke...

SDD, no worries. For a GPU, you’re not going to fit anything bigger than a GT1030 in there for size and power reasons. The PSU is pretty...

Why would you eat crappy rice every day to save a couple of hundred dollars on an item that should last for ten years or more?
10/05/2021 - 09:22
The difference between fluffy rice cooked consistently all the way through, and rice that’s a mix of gluggy and hard. Also, cheap rice...

What kind of “sauce” though? I can’t imagine eating potsticker dumplings with anything but vinegar and chilli oil in a dipping bowl.
