If you like to fiddle, yes. If you want something that just works out of the box a NAS is better (and probably more reliable)

The Terramaster uses a J1900 CPU which is significantly slower/older than the J3455 used in the Synology. It'll be OK for general NAS...

Yes, but 18/4 or 18/8 (302) stainless steel contains enough nickel to handle mild acids and it won't be a problem unless you leave it in...

Unless you're planning on cooking with acid I wouldn't worry about the 18/10 bit. We've been using our set almost daily for ~5 years now...

Haven't tried it but with Google Home you can set up routines, might be possible to turn these on/off at certain times

The Google home was the original. Mini is smaller, Max is bigger. Go figure.

Plenty of reviews around. Yes it's OK, but there are many other high end phones with similar specs/cost, each with it's own strengths....

Looks like 4G, which to me is a deal killer if you're spending this much on a phone & plan.
