Margarittaville Drink Mixer

Review 2017 – Let the party begin

Sometimes the life of the party can be found at the bar, or behind it. In fact making your own drinks is often just as much fun as drinking them.

Nothing starts a party like a round of blended cocktails, they perk everyone up a bit and in summer are awesomely refreshing, but then you have the problem of what to make and if you have a number of guests, coordinating drinks with only one blender can be a hassle or even a disaster to say the least.

Along comes the Margaritaville Tahiti DM3000 to save the day. Let’s have a look at this superb invention and why we should all kneel before it.

Breville Smart Oven

*Review 2017* – Heating things up

Having a toaster oven is one of those optional choices in the kitchen – you can get by without it. But having a ‘good’ toaster oven is another thing all together. There are loads of different toaster ovens available on the market but the one that really stands out for us is the Breville Smart Oven BOV800XL.

Lets have a look at why we think it is worthy of a place in the kitchen.

Krupps Espresso Maker

Review 2017

Lets have a look and see if it’s all it is cracked up to be.Coffee making is an art that only a few can master, and for others there is krups espresseria automatic coffee maker. Real espresso machines (like the ones in your favourite café) cost anything from $5000- $50,000 – which means you would have to drink a lot of coffee at home to get your money back.

There are however many home coffee makers available on the market, and choosing the one that best suits your needs is a bit of a daunting task. One that has been getting a bit of attention lately is the Krups espresso maker.

Bosch Universal Kitchen Machine

Power and versatility packed into one – Our Review

(Updated May 2017) – The choice of mixers available on the market is nothing less than bewildering. There are some mixers that are simple, useful and cheap, and there are some others that are commercial grade, powerful and come with a hefty price tag. The mixer that you choose for your kitchen should largely depend on your requirements.

The Universal Bosch mixer is one that we have been hearing a lot about recently so we decided to a have a look at this product and see what it offers.

Waring Pro Ice Crusher - Just Chill Man

On The Gas 2017 Review

If you are like us here at On The Gas – then you probably like the odd refreshing beverage or five. One of the greatest summer (or winter) drinks is the caprioska – vodka muddled with fresh lime a bit of brown sugar and then covered in crushed ice.

There are various ways that you can crush ice some people have one of those flimsy hand ice grinders … which can take forever and break more than often – you can wrap it up in a tea- towel and smash it with a rolling pin (but this can get a bit messy especially after a few drink) You can use the food blenders to crush ice, but it wreaks havoc on the blades. Or you can do it properly and use an electric ice crusher.

LEM Meat Grinders – Grind that meat.

(Updated May 2017) – There is nothing better than home made salami, except for maybe homemade chorizo or home made ….. well you see where we are going. Making your own sausages and mince is actually a lot better than buying from a supermarket. You cut out all the additives and preservatives and basically have control over what cuts and kinds of meat you use. Making all of this at home is a cake walk if you have a good quality meat grinder.
