    For the paper towel gadget, maybe test it when you are down to your last 10 squares. I find the vigorous tear does not work as elegantly with the "simple" holder. Either way thanks for showcasing the product. Did not know it existed. Probably will buy it, of it's sold in Canada.

    I actually have a toaster just like that. It doesn't have an electro-magnet, so when you push the button, a little motor moves the toastable item down, and then back up, and Dings once to let you know your item has been toasted. My toaster does allow for much larger pieces of bread, or multiple regular sizes of bread. I'd contemplate that stirrer if it were on Canadian Amazon =T

    The Sage toaster is pretty cr@p - I have the four-slice version and the browning is pretty uneven. But much worse, the toasting controls only just outlast the warranty: both of them now refuse to allow me to select a “full toast” and reset themselves to somewhere around 50% of the previously-normal time. It looks great but it simply doesn’t last or perform to its price-point :(

    If I do the single hand tear paper towel, I end up dragging the whole lot on the floor, just at high speed. I'm legit going to look into that stirring thing though.

    That stirrer would do nicely for porridge and other things like that too from the look of it and as someone with chronic pain and fatigue 30 minutes of stirring is a lot for me and I'd begin to get tired and painful. With that I could have a little break in the middle.

    I can't believe I am trying to defend that crazy toaster, but if you are the kind of person who eats toast (or something you can toast in a toaster, like those crumpets) for breakfast at least 4 times a week, then it might be a good investment. I've had some cheap toasters that just fall apart over time and if this can hold up to that, then we would be in business.

    Maybe it's just me or I'm just misunderstanding something but I'm kind of confused at what he said @2:43, wouldn't a non-stick surface mean that it actually would be slippery or slide around...? If you want something to stay in place, you'd usually want it to grip or stick to surfaces.

  • James Laforme

    As someone who's actually from the literal home of the hot wing Buffalo,NY, I have to say those wings look nothing like a "real" hot wing. Don't get me wrong, they look and probably are delicious but just as I wouldn't go around saying a Chicken pot pie is a English meat pie, you can't really say those are hot wings. (Might not be the best example, but hopefully you get the idea) To be a bit more specific, Hot Wings traditionally are deep fried chicken wings that are usually cut into two pieces (Or"the flats" and "drumsticks" as they are more colloquially known in Buffalo) and then after frying, they are then dropped into bowl into a very simple yet amazingly addicting sauce consisting of only two things...Hot sauce and melted butter. Depending on how spicy you want it, you add more better and or less sauce, but usually 2 parts melted butter to 1 part hot sauce is the norm. If you want the most authentic tasting wing sauce, you really got to use "Frank's hot sauce" but any similar simple or basic hot sauce would be fine. Anything else isn't really "Hot Wings" they're just Wings...That doesn't mean they aren't good or tasty and/or that you should only cook wings one way. Nearly every place that sells Wings here, sells a variety of different kinds but if you ask specifically for Hot Wings you'll get what I described above. Chicken wings are truly amazing, my personal favorite part of the Chicken, and they're just so many unique and down right delicious ways you can prepare them. I just really wish more people around the world knew exactly what the original Hot Wings are and had the chance to try them out for themselves. I've known so many people who thought they knew what they were or tried them before, but when they actually got to try the "real" thing were just so surprised and shocked by how different they were to what they've had before. I would love to one day see you guys cook'em on one of your videos and to find out what you think of them!

    The cordless stirrer may be slightly overrated. In that "gentle steady stirring" isn't a common application to start. Let alone encouraging walking away and potentially allowing burning. Risotto is kind of a perfect application for it. Be interesting to see it get its own video where it's used for several different dishes to see how it does. Only slightly overrated because it feels like it'd be useful to have despite the limitations. Toasters are one of those interesting appliances that cost a bunch for fancy integrated gizmos. Alongside other daily use gadgets like coffee machines and rice cookers. The range of price could be as low as $20 for a barebones cheap model to $500+ for the top of the line variant. The reason I call them interesting though is that sometimes you get what you pay for with these appliances. Going cheapest means a plastic piece of junk that's likely to break after a year of poorly cooking your food. Going to a midpoint price range, researching the product, and asking if you'll use it heavily enough to justify it's features can get you the best value. For example,, the toaster in this video. Just taking whats in the video. Only 2 slots which may be a bit short. Apparently decent performance/heat applications. Price is about $150 US, which combined with not being a 4 slot toaster suggests it's selling on gizmos. I don't go for toast often enough to justify this kind of toaster for myself. A cheaper toaster without the gizmos but keeping the performance would suit me far better.

    Ooh as a person in a wheelchair I'd love that. It's such a nuisance to cook sitting down but I'm not steady on my feet so it's not safe to stand. I'd love to see them try. Also limited hand strength & dexterity or shaky hand tests so they can't use a knife or maybe even use a tens machine so their fingers are tingly + they can only use a food processor and gadgets to cook a meal ect. It'd be funny and helpful.
