I'd love the beechwood slicer, not just for sauerkraut but also cabbage kimchi and for the cabbagy bit of okonomiyaki

That is not a "Bratwurst" it is a sausage which resembles a Bratwurst. The sausage looks way to dry, plus it´s a fine cut sausage. The meat of a real Bratwurst is supposed to be minced more coarse. Bis zum nächsten Video. Tschüss Jungs.

"im not sure if its in the cream or on the cream" perhaps mixing it before going full cat and sticking your face in the bowl would have been a thought
I lick the insides of microwave popcorn packages
I may be just overly negative here and influenced by the fact that I usually prefer the base ingredients straight up, but I find the cocktail mixer extremely stupid, mostly for the fact that you have to use the capsules. That's terrible from both the perspective of the consumer as well as the environment. Syrups are several times cheaper than the capsules so it's still better to buy those if you just want to try out a bunch of cocktails at home. The biggest pain in the ass (where some convenience would actually be useful) generally tend to be mojito variations where you just impulsively decide to have a whole bunch but have to go buy mint because your plant died again and you end up buying ice cream as well as potato chips and other junk food, thinking you're going to watch a movie. You remember ice cream goes well with Malibu so you get that but you also get some cream just in case and then you go back to the alcohol section to get more white rum because the mint box is way too large for what you have at home. Later you find yourself watching youtube at 4AM with most of the alcohol gone and the movie unwatched. The point is, this machine won't mojito, let alone any variations of it. Anything with milk or cream is also a no go. The machine makes some of the most simple cocktails that can be mixed in less than two minutes no matter how drunk you are at the moment.

i think for pod alcohol machines the one by drinkworks is so much better because the one in the video you still have to get your own alcohol so what is the point? What i would want out of such a machine is the convenience and that means everything in the pod and just have a water reservoir so that I don't have to have an alcohol cabinet (www.drinkworks.com/product/the-drinkmaker)

djdsf 12 days ago
The last one looks good, but these damn auto drink makers cost so much and end up tasting "passable" at best. Kuerig makes one that actually has the alcohol included, but Instill can't get over the $8 per glass price when it's would be the same or cheaper at the bar and I would not have to pay for the machine to make it to being with.

The smoke gun seems great and I'd definitely use it. But the drinks machine is a big no-thank-you from me. Making a wide variety of drinks is really not that hard. Not even counting alcohol (as the 300pounds quoted in the video doesn't either), all of my tools, syrups, juices and garnishes were a fraction of that cost. Plus once the company stops making the pods you are SOL.

Only the smoking gun caught my eye, though I just got my new pampered chef mandolin - OMG! I love this thing so much - its not a traditional design because you move the blade rather than the food and its SO much safer! It has a chute you put the food in, and I guess a plunger is the best word for it (?) that you unlock and extend to push back down and that moves the blade to cut the food in the chute, of course there is a guard/pusher for the chute so everything gets cut even.

The smoking gun is really good. I find it better if you smoke it twice but leave overnight (if applicable) on the second smoking.

The trouble with fancy mandolins is that none of them do the job BETTER than a benny, and if you're not confident enough to use a benny then you probably shouldn't be using a mandoline.

The last product i didn't like. If you want expensive cocktails - go to a bar (i know,i know, pandemic at the moment). If you like quality cocktails - learn how to make them at home. Also,for 300$ , you can stack up on so much decent bottles of alcohol and you will be way better off.

I wonder what could be done by bubbling smoke through a liquid (cream or melted butter before sautéing mushrooms and onions). Smoky ghee sounds worth trying.

The cabbage cutter really made me think how deferent cultures are, in the Balkan area that thing is a common house item and good wooden one would cost less than 10e. Also you could make fresh cabbage salad with it as well as slice anything you need not just cabbage.

I have a real problem with that cocktail thing. It's huge and takes up counter space but also doesn't actually do anything. I suppose it measures out a pour of your main spirit, but it's just taking a cocktail mix in a pod, shooting into a mixing vessel or glass. You could get the exact same result with an auto-stop pouring tip and a knife to cut open the pod for hundreds of pounds less. It's not mixing, diluting, stirring, chilling or any of the actual challenging or time consuming things that come with making a drink.

The cocktail machine is far and away not worth the money. Most of the cocktails people would be making at home are simple enough to not need a machine for their creation; for example, a Cosmo is 4 ingredients: vodka, lime juice, triple sec, and cranberry juice. That cosmo was so heavy on the cran when it should be more of a light pink because it's already gonna be tart thanks to the combo of cran and lime juice, so to go that heavy on the cran is just too much. Simple cocktails don't take too long to make nor are they worth losing the personal touch of how the consumer enjoys them.

Would love to see the chefs play around with the Sage, Smoking Gun on different food using different ‘burnables’. Like what type of dried teas are good, and what they’d be used for. Barry said you could use hay and I am supper excited to find out what smoked hay goes well with. The use of hay for flavor is something I’ve never hear of before.

Forget a specialized cabbage shredder, you can get wafer thin shreds with a food processor’s slicer attachment and also get all the useful benefits of a food processor too.

You normally also put carrots (diced or sliced) in the Sauerkraut and some people also put smoked ham in it. it's freaking delicious

These were some fun gadgets...with the exception of the specialty mandolin. (Too Ben specific...although cheers to Ben for slicing his own cabbage!) The cocktail machine was really neat, but anything coming out of a flavor pod is already a handicap in terms of flavor.

Seeing someone make sauerkraut is always interesting. I have only made it by the barrel full. Tight Layers of kraut and salt with a cloth over the top then a wood press with a big rock and ring it close with a sheet of plastic and wash the top of the kraut every week to remove the white yeast with a clean cloth and water and just wait and it ferments and becomes sauerkraut. Now fermented coleslaw is faster and I think might be what some folks are making in a week.

Re: Smoking Gun, I’ve found that almost always, it’s more the smoke that billows out that I’m tasting vs smoke penetrating the food itself. 🤷‍♀️ idk that it’s worth it for me hahah

Out of my 7 rums bottles I use 4 for drinks. Don't even start me on tequilas. With 520$ CAD ( ~ 300£ ) you can get the materials to build a bar in your house, get second hand mini-fridge + ice machine, all the basic barware+glassware and STILL afford more than 4 damn bottles of basic alcohol. This is ridiculous.

I feel like a fun battle idea would be where both the J's (James and Jamie) and both the B's (Ben and Barry) have to team up together to try and beat the other team, with Mike getting to be the judge because he's the only one who doesn't share the starting letter of his name with any of the others.

How would the long island iced tea one work though? That's typically at least 4(?) liquors, unless they ask you to add 1 and have the rest within the capsule although that sounds counter-intuitive?

If I were willing to miss it for a few weeks, I'd lend you guys my new 'seventeen different functions and a light show' rice cooker (Sorry, the Reishunger 1.5 liter digital PREMIUM rice cooker) and see what happens. Mostly because I have managed to make exactly three functions work, and one of them is the 'keep warm' that springs on automatically. Partially because I want to see James get really really upset over how much space can be taken up by a thing that is mostly there to do rice. Also, several of the normals might be into the space-shippiness of it all.

Enjoyed the Vid. I've had several mandolines, and I used a plastic Famous V , which is good ( and safe) and flexable. Don't need one just for cabbage. Cocktail maker - bleurgg . only 4 spirits ? plus you have to put ina good slug in each container, and then clean em out , How often do i have cocktails - not very often. and then i make a couple fo different ones, not just 4 spirits. Have you done the all in one coffee makers ? Bean to cup

It probably would help you sell a lot more books if you mention that the recepies in them are in normal metric system, with grams and liters not cups and ounces like usual british cook books. I was hesitant to try your app, because of it.
