    I would use the pasta machine. How well would it work with almond or coconut flour?

    Or you could get a yeti travel mug, which I prefer anyway because it’s larger and is a travel mug. But be warned, the water will stay ripping hot for a very long time if you just throw boiling water in it. Or you could get a double walled, vacuum insulated stainless steel water bottle that’s rated for hot beverages. That water stays hot for as long as you want and you can take it hiking, into the field if you have an outdoor job. And neither require an app.

    Can you do an in depth review of the pasta maker. Showing the different shapes it makes and if you can make flavored pastas like tomato or spinach ones?

    fancy egg timers are bad because what makes a classic "egg timer" so good is that its general use item moreso than just for the egg.

    The beer thing is not my thing, the egg timer puncher is just unnecessary cause I have them separately (but if it was on sale it'd be a nice novelty gift), the mug is about 80 pounds too expensive for my taste lol but the pasta maker I might actually save up for!

  • Benjamin Jarvis

    The pasta maker is exspensive and pasta can be pretty cheap however being able to make a homemade pasta that easily....christmas sales yes? Also it would be intresting to see how flexible it could be ie how easy is it to make an infused pasta (like the truffle pasta we have seen before for WAY TOO MUCH for little truffle), as that could be a game changer! More testing maybe please PS let James keep it

    The ember mug is ridiculous!! 100 pounds ??? no thanks there's a small hot plate that exists specifically for keeping your mug warm where you plug it in with a usb cable its not as precise with the temps but at least its not that expensive.

    Quick maths: - Assuming 1 portion of pasta is 100g - 500g of cheap dried pasta = 50p - 10 eggs is £1.70 and 1kg of flour is £1, thus 10 portions of fresh pasta is £2.70 If x is the number of portions of pasta it takes for the pasta machine to "break even": - Cost of machine + x(cost of fresh pasta) = x(cost of dried pasta) - 140 + x(2.70/10) = 0.5x - x=609 609 portions of pasta can either seem like a season or a lifetime. I am cónflicted.

    The other variable is quality - fresh pasta is a high multiple better than 'cheap dried pasta'. Yet both are fit for purpose.

    7:3 beer to foam ratio would get you in trouble with weights and measures, definitely tat and a load of bull. I already have multiple timers, don't need an extra one just for eggs. The coffee mug. Hmm, divided for sure. Do I think it's a decent idea? Yes. Vastly overpriced? Also yes. Pasta maker I'd have though as I adore fresh pasta but can't make it to save my life.

    James' guess for the weird smart-mug price "59.99" James' guess for the all in one pasta making machine "59.99" WHY would you guess this massive appliance that actively does all the hard work of making pasta is the same price as a mug that requires an app and updates?!

    I’m so in love with that pasta maker! I actually had a coworker who had an Ember mug but hers was more of the travel mug style and she had a charger for it. AMAZING! Kept her coffee hot all day! I’m not really sure I see the need for the egg timer though. There a lot of lower tech timers that could work just as well. And why would anyone buy the beer topper when you can have the foaming sonic pen thing you guys used before? That thing was amazing! 🙌🏻

    I miss watching Sorted. But at the same time I just don't feel right about the guys putting up a pay wall around the recipes and fun stuff that they used to put out for free. It makes the channel feel more like a business now than a group of friends sharing their knowledge and experiences. I know Sorted will probably never see this comment. I just wanted to put it out there.

    I was a bartender for a few years, and it's down to can, bottle, or keg really. I can get a good amount of foam from a can or bottle by the pour, but it's not being mixed with CO2 as I'm pouring the same as a keg pull is, which is why it tastes different. 10:41 - I can't get the one shown here in the states, but Amazon does show a few other options and they seem to have decent reviews. www.amazon.com/Nutrichef-PKPM350-Countertop-Appliance-Chrome/dp/B0151DLVSU/ref=sr_1_39?dchild=1&keywords=pasta%2Bmaking%2Bmachine&qid=1594061305&sr=8-39&th=1 as one example

    1. Pasta maker, clear winner. It's usefull, quick and is actually an upgrade from traditional machines. 2. Coffee mug (i admit i'd put all three gachets on 2, because they're all kinda.. eh), I does what it says but has an unnecessary app and is way too expensive. 3. Egg timer, dito mug minus the app 4. Beer foamer, just.. why?

    If the non pricked egg cracks, it's not about "extreme temperatur difference", its about the air in the air sac expanding due to the high temperature.
