Preparing for a Storm

If people make a run on emergency supplies and the store shelves are empty try these little tips.

Your top-loading washing machine can be used as an extra cooler.  The built-in drain is very convenient.

Heavy appliances like the oven and dryer are great for storing items you can’t pack up.  Just remember to take them out before the next time you turn the oven on.

Solar powered garden lights are a great way to light your home at night without adding heat.

Putting a hot water bottle out in the sun during the day will give you warm water to wash your face.

Your SUV may use a lot of gas but it makes a great make-shift tent for sleeping.

Lastly, the number one thing people forget to stock up on…condoms.  Remember all the hurricane babies after Charley?

Hot Dogs and the 4th of July

Happy 4th of July Everybody!

Grilling hot dogs on the 4thof July always makes me think of hanging out with friends and family around the pool or running through sprinklers.  Here’s some gadgets that will let you have hot dogs any time of the year.

 The Hot Diggity Dogger is a toaster with holes for the wieners and the buns.  It only makes two dogs at a time.

Another toaster design places a rotisserie on top of a toaster oven.  The Party Maker Oven Hot Dog Griller Rotisserie Oven/Toaster is a rediculously long name but a good space saver.

Want some eggs to go with your wieners? The 4-in-1 Hot Dog Makercan steam wieners (and corn), boil eggs,  warm buns and make popcorn. I’m guessing the popcorn is air-popped but I’d rather cook mine the old fashioned way over the stove with oil.

If you prefer your wiener be cooked the way it’s done at the ballpark then you’ll surely like the Hot Dog Rotisserie by Giles and Posner. The hot rollers can warm up the wieners and keep them warm for seconds or thirds.

The Hot Dog Maker Truck won’t heat buns but it will cook more wieners on it’s stainless steel rollers in style. The Waring Hot Dog Griller has 4 non-stick rollers and a dishwasher safe lid.  It will cook 6 wieners at a time in 8 minutes.  It’s more stylish and twice the price of the Emson Hot Dog Express with stainless steel rollers.


If all of this seems like child’s play to you then you may like this Hot Dog Steamer and Bun Warmer from Star.  This commercial cooker will hold 170 wieners but only 18 buns.

Star also makes Broil-O-Dogs Hot Dog Broiler and Bun Warmer. 18 hot dogs are basted on the stainless steel wheel while 12 buns are warmed.

I like this Tabletop Steamer from FMA.  It’s much less expensive than the Star cookers and it will simultaneous cook 30 wieners and 50 buns

Metal Tiles

These cute little boxes contain self-stick 4″ metal tiles from Chemetal.  They do not require any grout and you can cut them yourself using common tools.  A box of 54 tiles costs $79. 

One of my friends wants to cover the ceiling at her entry with them.  The possibilities are endless.
