You can add the weighted companion cube and the Aperture Science Coffee Mug to that sub. My favorite part is that the Aperture mug makes you look like a scientist drinking coffee. And bitches love scientists.

I think you'll get a lot of waste from an eyedropper. When I made my lip tar lipsticks, I mixed lip tar and a tube of Burt's Bees in a microwavable pinch bowl (which I already had in my kitchen because they're so damn useful!), nuked it for a few seconds, mixed with a chopstick and then poured directly back into the Burt's Bees tube. The pinchiness of the bowl made pouring easy with almost no waste (I scraped up a little with the chopstick).

u/SankThaTank · 10 pointsr/EatCheapAndHealthy

I got one of those rice washing bowls from amazon a couple years ago and it really was a game changer for me. I just put the rice in and rinse it for 30 seconds or so, drain out the excess water and dump it in a rice cooker. So easy and the rice comes out amazing every time. I could never go back to instant rice at this point

Hario Chacha Kyusu Maru Tea Pot, 700ml - $15

Teaology Luna Double Wall Borosilicate Tea Cup - $3.95

I'm very much still learning, but I love this cheap little setup and it's been working especially well with my Oolongs and Greens. I picked up a sample of Pu erh Pearls from Adagio (pictured), and it works just fine for that as well if you're okay with western brewing techniques.

u/hshawn419 · 5 pointsr/Cooking

Rinse the rice first, that will help with the brown. You can buy a strainer bowl that helps with this, I'll find a link.

Try using 2/3 rice to 1 water. (More water) that should help with coming out dry.

Best of luck.

This info is for anyone considering the IMUSA mugs: They make a slightly smaller version that is 10 cm or (.7) quarts or 662 ml. Weight: 71 grams/ 2.5 ounces. IMUSA USA R200-10

My suggestion: Bear can or bear bag. Second suggestion: Haribo sugar free gummy bears. Why carry all that heavy food in your stomach?

u/ScottAllyn · 5 pointsr/Coffee

I use Vacu Vin Containers. Usually the tinted ones, but if we have a lot of beans, we end up having to dip into the clear ones. :D They do a fantastic job of extending the life of the beans.

u/simsoy · 5 pointsr/tea

I think it retains heat pretty well if you keep the lid on. It pours very nicely, you'll never miss or spill. And the mesh infuser is huge, it's really easy to pick up and let the tea drain so you don't over seep the tea.

Edit: You can also use this tea light warmer to keep the tea hot if you're going to take a few hours to drink the tea. It's only $10, and the teapot is $15 so you'd be spending a lot less than what you'd originally planned even with this add-on.

Tea cups like this teaology one ($3.95), or this series of Turkish cups--(or this alternative set) all would match the "all glass" look nicely.

u/GraceGallis · 5 pointsr/boardgames

For Eldritch Horror, it's been a great pleasure to swap the sanity/stamina counters for red and blue d8s. It was also great to upgrade the d6s to 16mm dice - they roll better and feel heftier than the 12mms the game came with.

I also like these pinch bowls for miscellaneous components:

Also: foam core inserts are great for making the experience better organized and help make the set up faster!

u/wakalaka · 5 pointsr/tea

I use this FORLIFE mug at work.

It works well and it is easy to clean. The ceramic lid flips over to hold the metal infuser with the used tea leaves. This is helpful so u don't need to take multiple trips back and forth to the break room/garbage

/u/pickyourowndamnname because he's my fiance and I want to get him something nice for his birthday. He always gets me oreos and takes care of me when I'm sick. He also tries to help me whenever I'm cooking or baking and he can make delicious tea. He needs a new mug, specifically this one.

u/idrawforbacon · 3 pointsr/tea

I got the teapot here:
It comes with the pouch and styrofoam insert for the teapot and 2 small gongfu cups.

When traveling, I usually drink alone, so I just wanted a glass the size of the teapot to avoid having a fairness pitcher.
I bought these glasses that matches the pot volume, and cut out the styrofoam to make it fit.

u/Aznguy1 · 3 pointsr/tea

Are you looking for that glass specifically? If you're just looking for the same style it would a double walled glass tea cup/tumbler.

I think I found it.

u/TeaLeavesAndTweed · 3 pointsr/tea

I use the provided hot water in our office kitchen. We have two systems -- the water cooler gives water at about 180F and the coffee maker provides plain hot water at a slightly higher temperature (both are filtered). I brew in gaiwan, in a Western-style teapot, or grandpa-style in a mug, depending on what I feel like. I don't find that the slightly-cooler-than-boiling water affects the flavor of black or pu-erh teas, and if I'm brewing a delicate green or white tea, I put the water into a mug before pouring it over the leaves to let it cool slightly.

All this said, I'm a bit of "that eccentric tea lady" at work. I find it endearing and enjoy talking to people who enjoy tea, no matter how they take it. I have a small collection of teaware, including a gaiwan, a portable gongfu set, an English china tea-for-one set, and a glass kyusu and two glass cups.

At my old job, I kept a small electric kettle on my desk, plugged into the power strip with my computer and printer. I would boil it and let it cool off for as long as I needed depending on what kind of tea I was drinking. I was less "eccentric" in that job and drank all my tea out of this mug.

u/DNA_ligase · 3 pointsr/MealPrepSunday

Not the OP but those look like the Sistema soup containers. They sell them on Amazon and also at Bed Bath and Beyond. I think Dollar Tree sells a knock off version, but I've never tried those so I can't vouch for them. I like the Sistema containers; they last nearly 2 years before the seal gives out.

Here is your idea, but more efficient

u/MsCheshireCat · 2 pointsr/trees
u/Razaroozle · 2 pointsr/JUSTNOMIL

The trick to sticky rice, not sushi rice, is to wash it really well, until the water runs clear. I use a big bowl and a rice strainer since in my sink it's hard to tell when it's clear enough. Then let it soak in water for 30 minutes. After that dump the water and put it in a pot. Add about 1/2 inch more water than rice to the pot. Then turn the burner on high with a lid covering the pot. Cook on high for about 15-20 minutes. You will most likely burn it on the bottom the first few times but you'll get the hang of it and your stove/pots. Be sure to use a wooden/ soft plastic spoon to scoop the rice so it doesn't break.

Sushi rice is the same but with more steps/ingredients after the rice is done.

Green tea I love

u/defdestroyer · 2 pointsr/BuyItForLife

As discussed in the manual for this rice cooker, you only need to wash unpolished white rice. This is because the dehusking process that removes the husk and the bran leaves behind some of both and washing removes these. Polished white rice is already washed for you, and brown, black or wild rice do not need it because their husk and bran have not been removed.

That said, I recommend this washing bowl.

I keep it simple - I have a cup, a basket infuser, and the cup comes with a lid that I can sit the basket infuser on when it's done steeping. Here's what mine looks like!

It's work, so I try not to do anything too fancy!

u/Phearlosophy · 2 pointsr/LifeProTips

I know it's kind of a specialized tool but they make strainers specifically for rice. They drain slow so you can see how clear the water is. The holes are small so no rice gets through. And it has a strainer/spout to pour off excess water.

You can use it as a normal colander too so it's not just sitting there for nothing.

If you want simple western style brewing, which of you are in the Americas or uk is the norm these two items will get you set up right. All you need is tea. especially if you want to get into oolongs, which can be very fussy about temperature, you will find a kettle with temp control a dream come true.

Also if you were in the USA look at Harney and sons. They a great first step, offering a wide variety of low cost samples with free shipping.

FORLIFE Curve Tall Tea Mug with Infuser and Lid 15 ounces, Turquoise

Epica 6-Temperature Variable Stainless Steel Cordless Electric Kettle

u/SierraHotel058 · 2 pointsr/Coffee

This looks promising:

Based on the Amazon reviews this would be a good choice. I'm a little surprised that the container is clear, as I have heard that light also degrades coffee.

u/2Skies · 2 pointsr/EatCheapAndHealthy

I picked up one of these "Japanese Washing Bottom Drainers" rice strainers on the cheap and it is DEFINITELY worth the coin to strain rice and quinoa. It's not metal so you won't run the risk of chipping away at the hulls of the grain if you get playful with the washing.

No affiliate link above, just good vibes for good grains :)

u/travelbugart · 2 pointsr/tea

I really, really like my Tea Forte KATI mugs (yes, mugS, I'm addicted) with infuser. If you don't want to buy the set, you can get the infuser or one like it separately. They filter even the finest of my teas:

u/bigl00z3 · 2 pointsr/Coffee

One comment on tightvac. With their name they try to make you think it creates a vacuum.

In fact it's just a tight closing like many plastic containers. When you press on the button, you allow the air from the lid to exit while you push it in (otherwise you would not be able to close it. Try without pressing on the button).
Once it's closed, you are at atmospheric pressure inside. If you try to open it by pulling without pressing on the button you will have a depression while pulling (more volume, same quantity of gas).

If you really want something with vacuum, the best I have found so far is the Vacuvin which comes with a pump and you really store coffee under low pressure/vacuum (=less O2 molecule available to oxidise the coffee).

u/jorgomli · 2 pointsr/tea

u/glitter_bitch · 2 pointsr/RedditLaqueristas

here's what i do... i find a dish that's low enough and wide enough for me to fill mostly with glitter w/o overflowing when i stick my finger in it. for reference, i usually use these little silicone mise en place dishes i got for christmas. :)

then i dip my basecoated fingernail in glitter and instantly brush off any that's on my skin back into the dish; after waiting a few minutes for the polish to set w/ the glitter, i brush the excess from the nail back into the dish, too. a few gentle pats with the flat of my brush nixes standing pieces and also helps settle the glitter firmly. after it's dried really well, i brush it again more vigorously -- i HATE when i get glitter in my topcoat lol -- to make sure every loose piece is off. then i put a thick layer of glitter food followed by a thick layer of topcoat.

List of Basic Kitchen Equipment

  • I'm really happy with this set of Ikea pots and pans (they're oven-safe, work on my induction stove, and are ridiculously good quality for the price. they've held up admirably to 2 years of abuse, and the non-stick skillet is still looking good:)
  • I added a big stockpot, which serves double-duty as an extra, extra large mixing bowl. also, the lid fits the non-stick frying pan so I can steam spinach :)
  • 2 non-stick baking sheets/cookie trays (oven bacon FTW!)
  • 2 silpat baking sheet liners (essential for keto pizza crust recipes)
  • 2 wire cooling/baking racks that fit inside your cookie trays; use in the oven to keep steak above the drippings and on the counter to cool baked goods
  • 24 silicone muffin cups (just throw them on a cookie sheet and you don't need muffin tins anymore. you can hold each one over the bowl as you ladle stuff into it, so you won't have nearly as many drips. food doesn't stick and they nest to store in a much smaller space than a muffin tin)
  • a set of mixing bowls
  • a couple of casserole dishes/pyrex baking dishes
  • some basic cooking utensils
  • a good whisk for stirring sauces etc
  • tongs (you need to decide whether you prefer the scissors style or the pincer style...)
  • kitchen shears
  • we really love these microwave cups (I just bought more yesterday cause we use them all the time)
  • little pyrex prep bowls (I never had bowls this size and thought they were dumb but they came with a set; turns out I use them constantly. the fact that they're oven-safe just adds to their utility)
  • electric kettle (super fast hot water for bouillon in the morning and a hot water bottle on cold nights)
  • crockpot with a timer (I've got pork shoulder cooking right now!)
  • electric mixer (whipping heavy cream by hand is pretty torturous! and trying to whip egg whites by hand is nearly impossible)
  • blender (I pretty much only use mine for cream of mushroom soup anymore, but it's essential for that recipe)

u/torankusu · 2 pointsr/Bento

For my first bento, I made a sandwich, haha. I also filled in the gaps with baby carrots, saltine crackers, and a little bit of cream cheese to eat with the crackers.

I don't know if it's a concern to you, but rather than using disposable cupcake liners, you could go green (and save money) with silicone containers. :) I used these for my cream cheese and other little side dishes, but I also use silicone cupcake liners, which come in different shapes and colors (you could get the round ones, but there are ones of other shapes, like squares and hearts).

Your little fruit cup looks appetizing. :)

Really, on a Monday?

u/kammioderin · 1 pointr/tea

Electric kettles are probably a life saver in your situation. Then I would do a single serving style brewing container. The teavana perfect tea maker or an IngenuiTea are good picks and more of a one piece type deal. They also have a fine mesh strainer so only the smallest bits of tea dust get through when you are done brewing.

If you want to brew in the mug or cup you will be drinking out of there are a lot of mugs with infusers out there. I can personally say that I love my ForLife mug and infuser. The only things to watch for when looking for a mug and infuser is the size of the infuser basket and the size of the holes in it. You want your basket to be big enough for your teas to be able to float around a bit and unfurl, but you don't want your holes big enough that the leaves or small particles to float through.

u/OK_now_what · 1 pointr/microgrowery

I do second-runs too but it's a bad idea to do it ontop of the oil from the first run. It's best to use a new pyrex or scrape out the first run before the second.

I've tried a few vac methods. I'm not gonna buy a $200 pump so instead I bought a VacuVin. it does the job pretty well but since it doesn't pull hard enough (I need ~30lbs, I'm getting around 25lbs) it requires 2-4 rounds of vac-purges to get everything out.

Not quite Christmas, but my sister got me a Tardis mug (like this one ) for our birthday, which was last Saturday. Christmas-wise I didn't get anything too flashy: a beautiful scarf made by my mother, a robe, gloves, a mini/travel umbrella, and a little money from my aunt and uncle.

u/radiationking · 1 pointr/Coffee

I have a couple Vacu Vin storage containers I use to store my roasted beans (only grind as needed). Works great as the number one enemy to roasted coffee is oxygen.

It uses the same vacuum pump/stopper you can get for wine bottles.

u/OMGwho · 1 pointr/

You mean these?

I bought mine at a local grocery store when I was little. I feel like they would have them at walmart or a dollar store

u/jclim00 · 1 pointr/tea

Most people here refer to resteeping in the same tea session with gongfu brewing which uses a lot of leaf to a low water ratio, gongfu sessions can go anywhere from 8 to 15+ steeps. You can keep leaves to resteep throughout the day with larger teapots though, just remove the infuser and let the leaves air dry. If you're leaving it for the next day, I think some people have some success with refrigerating, I personally just leave it out which is fine as long as it doesn't grow mold. You could also try cold steeping your leftover tea leaves overnight, it's a great way to use up the leaves.

Honestly though, with a teapot that large, unless you're brewing for multiple people, a mug+basket infuser combo might be a better choice for drinking solo. You won't waste as much leaf and you can resteep 2 or 3 times without abusing your bladder :)

u/meeme109 · 1 pointr/tea

I have these. When I'm holding them, even if there's scalding hot tea in them, I don't feel it at all. They're a little under 3 ounces so it's not quite as big as you want, but they're a good size for me. I honestly don't like the insulation of them that much. I find I miss the warmth of other cups when I'm using them.

u/InfiniteZr0 · 1 pointr/Coffee

I've got this
I use it for whole beans, but I bet it's good for ground coffee, too.

On a side note, you could check for a local roaster who'll deliver coffee to you. They'll grind the coffee right before they send it out.
Buying coffee from the store, who know how long they've been sitting in that condition.

I'm not sure if you're after something that keeps the soup warm or that can go in the microwave. But if it's option 2, I like Sistema.

I love the silicone ones. I have a set:


I also have a set of glass dishes like these:


And some crockery ones like these that are really nice and opaque (when that is important):


You can also do those in plastic:


I'd recommend the silicone ones, but only if you can get big enough ones. Otherwise it can get frustrating not having enough. I think for the bang for the buck, the glass ones above are the best balance of cost, size, ease of use (and non-game utility), cleanup (if needed), and stackability. :) If silicone were cheaper and larger, they'd be my fave.


u/AlbinoWitchHunter · 1 pointr/MealPrepSunday

u/DesertTwitch · 1 pointr/Cooking

I have the same problem, but using plastic bowls or microwave safe tupperware works for me. I use something similar to this.

u/JackaIope · 1 pointr/Cooking

I use the IP to make short-grain rice and I did it fine on the first try. Note that if you must eat very fresh tasting rice it still won't be good enough but if you can deal with Asian restaurant rice (the ones that are at last halfway genuine anyway) it should be comparable.

The problem is that i'm using specialized equipment so honestly I don't know how the results would be otherwise.

Scoop 2 cups of rice with the rice cup (if you don't know what this is use a teacup I guess...) and then place it in a bowl to wash it. Run water from the tap on your rice and mix it up with your hands for five to ten seconds, drain the water, then repeat this washing process three to five times.

If we were in my kitchen at this point we would move the rice to the additional stainless pot I linked above but if you don't have one either use any stainless steel bowl large enough to contain the rice or an oven-safe glass bowl. Place 2 cups of purified water specifically from the same cup you used to scoop the rice.

Then after covering that bowl with a lid safe for the IP or with aluminum foil, place the minimum amount of water inside the main pot, a trivet inside of the same pot (if using items not designed for the IP bring the trivet that came with the appliance) and then put the pot/bowl that contains the rice inside of the main stainless pot that comes with every Instant Pot.

This is the Pot-in-Pot method which I use for most situations I use the IP. Essentially because the water that is necessary for the pot to come to pressure is separate from the water used for the rice they will not interfere with each other, the rice won't absorb the water meant to be for keeping the pot under pressure nor will you have to add more water than necessary in order to retain enough of it to keep the IP functioning properly.

Close the IP and then use the rice setting for 12 minutes (assuming quantities are the same, I unfortunately don't know what to tell you for larger or smaller ones) and after it's done let it natural release for at least 10 minutes before releasing the rest of the pressure. This is important because if you do it too soon the rice won't have absorbed enough of the water. Once you take the bowl out it should be ready to serve and can be refrigerated and reheated without losing too much quality.

I think the IP has some kind of automatic sensor for how long it's supposed to cook your rice but honestly I have no clue as to when it wants to or doesn't nor do I know how it even guesses. I only know the necessary steps for making how much rice I personally eat in one day unfortunately as a result.

Haven’t heard the durability issues with aluminum, but if you want to try something without breaking the bank you could start with the imusa 1.25 quart

u/echodeltabravo · 1 pointr/CampingGear

For a cheap, lightweight cook kit, get the BRS Ultralight stove for $15, the Imusa 10cm aluminum mug for $10 and fashion a lid out of a pie tin or something.

  • Stove weight = 0.95 oz
  • Mug weight = 2.5 oz
  • Full gas canister weight = 7.5 oz
  • Total = 10.95 oz
  • Total cost = $30

    This type of system works best for boiling water to hydrate freezer bag meals or Mountain House-type of freeze-dried meals.

I've always wanted bamboo sushi rollers!

Glitter is the herpes of the crafting world. It gets EVERYWHERE, and there's nothing you can do about it.

I put my SSS in these little rubber bowls then just put my whole ear in it. I got mine at Publix but you can probably find them anywhere. They do a better job at suctioning to my ear than dixie cups!

If you have a kettle and want an easy to manage work teacup, I'd check out this or this. The Kati's infuser is really easy to clean if you have a small trashcan nearby (just put a grocery bag inside) and although they're a bit pricy, you'll save money by being able to use loose-leaf tea. The Forlife is a bit harder to clean but is still doable.

However if that still doesn't work, Twinnings has a good range of flavored black teas. I also would check out Harney and Sons. A little bit more pricy, but totally worth it. I've had Paris, Florence and a red raspberry tea and all three have been nice.

Go Cops!

This mug is awesome because it changes color when you put your hot beverage in it!

u/shmooli123 · 1 pointr/Ultralight

I'd look at the 1.25qt Imusa and 2qt Open Country as lightweight and cheap pot options.

Like, I would write one paragraph and then move to another paragraph without reading what I had already written. And I think I got distracted a few times too.

Anyways, lul, yes, you do need water. It really makes it foolproof though. You get a measuring cup, and then there is a ruler on the inside of the cooking container which shows exactly how much water you need to add for X cups of uncooked rice of various types. You are expected to wash the rice thoroughly too. I use this.

I haven't had mine for long, but I wouldn't be surprised given its relative simplicity and apparent high build quality for it to last a decade. I imagine this brand is as well-known as it is because it is extremely reliable.

Heya. Affiliate links on my post.

Oh, buddy, do I have a product to pitch you.

Obel... the never soggy cereal bowl.

But seriously. I thought I'd die without ever meeting someone that needed this bowl.

u/tamtheotter · 1 pointr/MealPrepSunday

there are a lot of recipes on here for ramen (I'm sure you can omit the noodles if you like) and if you let it cool I'm sure you can drink it fairly easily without a spoon. I love these for soup (and cereals!)

The Vacu Vin Coffee Saver works extremely well at keeping my beans fresh!

The hand pump requires a little effort on your part, but it's is well worth the extended shelf life. I was amazed at how fresh my coffee smells/tastes even after a month! Plus, the tinted plastic protects the coffee from the harmful effects of light.

Yeah I actually like the green one!

NINJA EDIT: Actually I am gonna buy bought these because Amazon. :)

hi contests are fun! this tardis would be amazing but eating with chopsticks is also cool.

I want Jessica to make me a hat!

CAN YOU TELL I LIKE FIREFLY!?! I got really mad when I heard the news about the cease-and-desist over the Jayne Hats on Etsy, all because Fox wanted to sell them themselves and make some money. Did you read about it?

YOU SHOULD WISH FOR this awesome Tardis mug, because I see it lacking on your nerd list!

Thanks for the contest! ♥!

u/misscannabis · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Yay for gifts

Is the sun still up in Alaska?

u/tenletterz · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Here is my number one item on Amazon (As of now). I need a new mug and I really enjoy Portal!

I'd have to choose any one of the wallets. They all look awesome and I need a new one. I've had my current one for 5 going on 6 years. Thanks for doing this contest!

Ok my favorite 2 are probably the tardis mug and the GoT board game. As cool as the game looks, I couldn't let the tardis fall into a black hole of awfulness.

u/PaganPirate · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Hi honey! Splendifferous is what you are! I actually do have a suggestion - I love Contigo mugs. This one is ceramic/stainless. I use the autoseal stainless ones... why do you prefer ceramic on the inside, if I might ask? I have the feeling that you and I both try and avoid disposable stuff, so I probably would like yours better. Now that I'm looking, I'm not even sure my lids are BPA free. :) Great!!

Saturday afternoons means iced tea for me.... I make a pitcher every day and I'm forever running out. My happiest feeling is sitting outside on the grass or the sand, sipping iced tea and reading a book while the kiddos tear around in circles around me.

u/Large_Eddy · 1 pointr/AppalachianTrail

I have used an alcohol stove for about 6 years and I love it. I use mine with an MSR Titan Kettle but it is about $50. A cheap option would be to use a grease pot. Loads of people swear by them. You can buy one at Walmart too. The Toaks titanium pot is around $30. People also use this mug to cook water in and claim it will boil 2 cups. Here is another grease pot that people use.

You can make a windscreen for it out of lightweight aluminum flashing or heavy duty cooking foil.

GET TO SLEEP! Actually I need to sleep too. XD

These little pinch bowls will help a lot with prep in cooking in my new apartment. :)

For making single cups, I use the
Tea Forte KATI Tea Brewing System.

I really like it. We have a Keurig at work, so I use that to fill it with hot water (the large-cup setting is the perfect size for this mug).

u/cupcakegiraffe · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

I'd like to enter to win this cool hippo mug, please! Thank you for the contest and I hope that when you get your zoo on gurl, you get it on like Donkey Kong!

Best i can do for you is a mug

u/Jasong222 · -1 pointsr/Unexpected

I feel like this is one of those shill posts where op posted a link to buy under an alt account, as there is in this thread. If so, here's a link to the same mug for half the price of that other link. (This link is Amazon): 'Unemployed Philosophers Guild 14399 Star Trek Transporter Mug

-3 edit: looks like I touched a nerve. At least now we know how many alts you have.
