Okay, one more Toaster gadget......
Toaster that Toasts your Handwritten Message
Image
Scribe your note on the tablet over the toaster, and it will burn the message into the bread.
I wonder what happens if your forgetful, and you eat the toasted note? :lol:

Now here's something that might be just what you need in your RV or cramped Apartment.

Wow! I just saw a Bell & Howell Disk Lights commercial, and they say these revolutionary devices utilize "solar conversion technology" and "energy storage containers".

Does anyone know about these revolutionary technologies? ;) :) :D

Yeah......

These "Disk Lights" are over priced, and dim compared to even the solar powered walk lights you can get at most local stores.
If you go search on youtube.com, you can find several reviews of them.

This may be considered a semi-commercial product, but it does have a bit of interest. Years ago a friend's daughter was setting up a dorm room at an older college whose electrical system was not renovated to modern standards. One of the requirements was a refrigerator and microwave could be used in the room but only units rented from the college. No others would be allowed. The friend balked, but gave in and rented the appliances.

What it turned out to be was a small under the counter refrigerator with a microwave attached to it's top. There was a single power cord from the unit to the outlet. Whenever the microwave was being used, the refrigerator power was disconnected, by a simple relay, to keep both from running at the same time and overloading the circuit. The short time of the microwave operation did not seem to affect the refrigerator.
Bit of a clever 'Rube' but it did alleviate problem.

I see these donuts all the time in the store. So tiny. Must be over a thousand in a box! And the name is so upbeat - it even has "Cheer" in it!
LOL

Okay,
lets move on from the Breakfast Cereals to something more appealing.....

DAZEY STRIPPER
Image
A {Mostly} Automatic Vegetable & Fruit Peeler.
Here's a video review: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=imPnIBV5Bgo
This product was made in the 1970's, and unfortunately the cutting blades are no longer being made for it. :(
But there still are NOS out there that you can find on E-bay, Amazon, Etc...

There is a machine that is similar being made by another company, and is sold by Walmart.
Starfrit 093209-006-BLCK Rotato Express, Electric Peeler

{Doesn't seem to be as sturdy as the older DAZEY STRIPPER}.
