The only good use for instant coffee is for cooking/baking.
Trying to use "liquid coffee" to impart coffee flavor is really hard because it tends
to mess up the liquid content. In some cases it would take more liquid coffee than
all the liquid called for in the recipe. Sometimes you can squeak by with expresso,
but that's rare.
Freeze dried instant is better than spray dried.
What's the point in a drink you have to spend ages preparing?
An Ohio teen has pleaded innocent to stealing his mother's credit card to pay for a friend's breast enlargement surgery.
Police say it's lucky they caught the guy quickly; otherwise, it may have turned into a bigger bust.
A couple minutes is not ages and we usually make it a pot at a time.
Most coffee makers have a timer and people set it for about the time
they wake up. By the time you get to the kitchen, the coffee is ready.
The bloody EU is trying to limit the wattage of vacuum cleaners and hairdryers in the interest of carbon bullshit. What a bunch of loonies.
Ours don't get warm. My vacuum that uses 1000W at 230V is an 8A flex.
Mine exploded. I used it to hoover up damp mess from a parrot aviary.
So all cords you plug in can take the full 15A of the breaker in the box then? If not, they should be fused. Especially an extension cord with more than one socket on the end.
I almost gave the "health and softy officer" at my last place of work a heart attack many times. To reach the ceiling to change the bulb in a projector, I placed 9 square desks in a 3x3 arrangement, 2x2 on that, then 1 on that. Then I climbed the pyramid and changed the bulb. She happened to walk in while I was doing it and said "I didn't see that!" then ran off. When she discovered I'd climbed onto the sloped roof of the two storey building to adjust a satellite dish for internet reception after strong winds, she almost cried.
Er..... you need to GFCI a low voltage but not the more dangerous 240?!
Yes, but the time taken from switching it on to getting the first cup of coffee would piss me off. I want it ready within 30 seconds of me wanting it.
I would accept that if you ONLY had 120V. But since you have the 240V available, why not use it? If I moved there, I'd likely change every damn outlet to 240V.
Isn't it historical to do with knights and holding swords?
Michael Buerk on watching Phillipa Forrester cuddle up to a male astronomer for warmth during BBC1's UK eclipse coverage remarked: "They seem cold out there, they're rubbing each other and he's only come in his shorts."
Yup, it is like the pool pump rules here. They want 2 speed, or
multiple speed pumps when the reality is as soon as you get the
required water turnover, you can just turn the pump off.
Mine is on a 6 hour a day timer and it stays blue.
The price we pay for 120v.
It is an issue but not serious enough to require fused plugs. I
suspect it will be a reality some day.
They have made 18 ga cords illegal tho and a 16 ga cord will run quite
a while on 15a without getting that hot.
14ga is limited by code to 15a but the real ampacity is 20 (we don't
tell people that tho)
My wife is the safety officer at her place and she would just make you
get down ... as a condition of your employment. It is all about
lawyers. They let them advertise on TV and you see ads like "did you
get hurt doing something incredibly stupid, We can get you money. Call
Dewey Cheatum and Howe".
It is just the way the law is written. Most of the outlets are 120v as
is most of the portable equipment.
As someone else pointed out, the process takes longer than that, no
matter how fast you can actually boil the water. The real coffee nuts
will say "boiling" is too hot for coffee anyway, hence our drip
You would have to bring your equipment with you. We don't have much
240v stuff except for fixed in place equipment.
I guess we usually learn how to shoot with both hands
