    The Giz Wiz Show 1661, February 9th 2017 Independent Show #144 

     The Giz Wiz Show will start it's13th year this month! And soon we'll be entering our 4th year of Independent Production! That's thanks to our wonderful Patreon supporters! If it wasn't for them, the Giz Wiz Show would be gone. If you'd like to support OMGchad & DickDe in our independent venture (we pay for everything ourselves, including travel) just click the Patreon link at the top of our show web page: http://www.gizwiz.tv.

    You can also contribute just once via the PayPal link that's there too. And thank you for doing that! Our show wouldn't exist without our viewer's support, but a bit more support would be a big help. (As we can say honestly, asking for more Patreon supporters is not to make more money, it's to help us lose less money doing The Giz Wiz. Thanks.) 

    This week we look at four housewares gadgets that will be featured at the upcoming Housewares Show in Chicago this March, 2018. We saw them at the New York 2018 International Home + Housewares Show Preview in January. 

    First up, the Kalorik Easy Pour Waffle MAKER. Making waffles is often a messy chorse. But Kalorik says it's a lot easier

    with their Easy Pour Waffle Maker. Simply use the included measuring cup to pour batter into the spout of the closed waffle maker. Yes, it looks like that would be a disaster, but the spokesperson assured me that the rugged gasket (with no-spill technology) holds the batter firmly in place. With the batter inside just adjust to desired temperature setting and when the green LED lights you will have a perfectly cooked waffle. The adjustable angle makes it possible to evenly distribute batter easily and efficiently. Indicator lights plus five browning levels for custom cooked waffles. The included measuring cup provides perfectly sized - 7" diameter 1" thick Belgian waffles. MSRP: $49.99. Was not on Amazon yet as of 2/8/18

    The Kalorik XL Digital Airfryer allows you to fry, grill, bake, or roast all your favorite foods. It can cook anything from French fries and onion rings to steaks, cakes, and vegetables with the touch of a button. Featuring an adjustable temperature up to 400° F and a built-in 60-minute timer, this user-friendly appliance is operated via the touchscreen interface on its LED control panel. Kalorik says it evenly cooks food by circulating hot air around the food and this model is for large for family-style cooking with its 5.5 quart basket. Its non-stick coated, removable parts are dishwasher safe. The XL Airfryer can be used to cook fresh or frozen food and even comes equipped with 7 preset options that take the guesswork out of cooking. But wait, there's more! As an added bonus, a basket divider that enables you to airfry 2 types of food simultaneously. And oil free air frying can offer up to 80% less fat than traditional oil frying. Stainless steel top cover and handle cover. $129.99

    Amazon Link: As of 2/8/18 the only one listed on Amazon was $340, way more than twice the MSRP. But this model should be on Amazon soon at $129.99 or thereabouts.
