Crap We Couldn't Sell on Home.Woot

Sellout's a special place where deals go to die. It's a place where any Buyer can try to make a last ditch effort to offload the stuff that's still muckin' up their books. This time it's Home.Woot's turn!

The home of last resort, Sellout. People with these items, will you come tell us people without these items why we cannot live without them?

Will this be the sale that finally breaks your resolve and you get a root beer kit?

I'm just hanging out, really.

I've made the root beer and it's pretty decent. The flavor leans on anise just a bit too much for me, but it's still fine, and it's easy to add a flavored syrup or steep some spices in the water before mixing it all up. (If you steep, make sure you remove them before you mix it!)

I brought along some homemade root beer and homemade cinnamon and vanilla ice cream to a Thanksgiving dinner so folks could make their own root beer floats for dessert and everything vanished pretty fast.

I bought the burr grinder the first time it was offered. It works great and worth the small price uptick from the more common grinders just for the ease of use. It is also very easy to change the grind size and amount. This comes in handy because if I'm just making coffee for myself I use a French Press, but if the are a passle of people (hello parents coming in for Xmas) I use a large autodrip machine.

Love the comforter on the XL twin set.
I could do without some of the extras but the comforter is great and the sheets and towel set aren'tbad.

I am still really tempted to get this for my college-bound daughter (starting Fall 2013), especially since she's already received decent scholarship offers from 2 schools within driving distance of home (so we wouldn't have to re-mail this to her dorm when the time comes). I suppose she could try the bedding out on her bed at home before moving into a dorm next August. . . .

This is the name of a sale that I can get behind.
Should just call the Bunch of Cheer#39;s this too.
Bags of crap we couldn't sell so we're giving it away.

The kettle seems to be a good deal, almost half off compared to Amazon.

You could buy two and send me one for the same price at amazon. If you want to that is. I mean, it would be a hot gift for the winter season but no pressure.

Relax.

Just be prepared for the sheets not to fit perfectly. Dorm room beds are slightly longer than a normal size twin bed (for whatever reason) so they will not work quite well on a regular twin bed. Congratulations to her on the scholarship offers!

I was so tempted by the kettle until I read the reviews on Amazon. Now I wouldn't get it unless it came with a 2 year warranty which included shipping when the lids breaks.

I am assuming you didn't see the $10.00 on the ad itself. I may well be ignorant, but I can read. I will choose to ignore you..

That is $18.00 not $10.00 on the list price for the bowl.

The Espressione Espresso/Cappuccino maker gets really mixed reviews up on the mothership. http://www.amazon.com/Espressione-1332-A-Espresso-Cappuccino-Anthracite/dp/B00198DCE8

Money is tight for me right now, so I won't be taking the chance.

I have one and love it, too. I use a pour-over, but it's easy to get a good grind from it. Way better than blade grinders.

What is your method of using the French press? IE, how much coffee, how long before the press, etc. I can never get it tasting right, except when I use a very small unit. TIA

acpress.com Not cute, but useful.

Find out how much water your French press holds. From there, for every 8 fluid ounces of water, use 10 grams (2 tablespoons) of coffee. My french press holds about 40 fl oz of water, so I go with 50 grams of coffee.

Go with a very coarse setting for your grinder. If the grind's too fine it makes the coffee far too strong and can cause the screen to clog, making the press difficult.

I let mine sit for about 4-5 minutes before pressing, then transfer it to a thermal carafe. If you're not already, you should be transferring the coffee out, otherwise it'll continue to absorb the coffee even though it's been pressed down and become too strong and bitter.

I've got one that looks similar, but not as fancy and has only one button and has auto-off. Does the same thing. Cost only about $12.

I use med. course grind 2 rounded coffee scoops for 16 oz. water (not boiling) steep 5 min. and press. Let settle for 1 min. pour and enjoy. I tend to like Sumatra and other dark roasts. "Safeway Select" is cheap when on sale and not bad. Starbucks is better. YMMV!

A lot of people simply blend arabica with robusto. Really, coffee is pretty commoditized at this point. Flavor comes from blending, technique, and syrup, much more so than coffee brand. Gotta look for "arabica", preferably whole beans for you to grind. Add a scoop of robusto like Folgers or even Great Value to round out the caffeine delivery vehicle.

I am not responsible for this post.

FYI if you order a George Forman grill, hope that the person you intend to give it to isn't at home when it gets delivered or IT TOTALLY FREAKING RUINS IT.

THANKS WOOT. NOTHING LIKE SPENDING $50 ON A CHRISTMAS GIFT YOU DON'T GET TO WATCH SOMEONE OPEN. Oh, and the box wasn't even taped at the top. It seriously looked like someone just folded it closed.

EDIT - Since my angry rant yesterday I have calmed down. Mainly because my boyfriend was really excited and he made a steak and loves the grill. I made some chicken last night and it was delicious. SORRY WOOT I STILL LOVE YOU
