    The Giz Wiz Show 1687, August 10th 2018 Independent Show #170

    The Giz Wiz Show is in it's 13th year of production, and the fourth year of Independent Production! (The first show was February 20th, 2006.) Thanks to our wonderful Patreon supporters we continue on! 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. Thanks from OMGchad & DickDe!)

    A coffee mug warmer with an LED readout!


    My Mr. Coffee cup warmer has seen better days so I needed something new. I decided to search for a higher tech replacement and I found the COSORI Premium 24Watt Stainless Steel Coffee Mug Warmer. It looked great in the photo, so I ordered one. Here's some of what Amazon says about it: Just turn it on and set the temperature. (This is designed for use with flat-bottom mugs for the most effective warming.) Keep warm or warm up your drink to as high as 131F/55C. Notice the highest warming temperature is 131F, but the description also says: Temperature Range 77°-230°F (25°-110°C). And then adds: (Note: Digits on the screen do not represent the temperature of the liquid in your cup.) Okay, now that I've used it, it makes sense. You'll see the actual results in my video. Also this device is equipped with a power adapter plug to make the power supply voltage only 12v rather than 120V. Giz Wiz: It's also 24 watts vs.17 watts for my old “Mr. Coffee” warmer, which is about 30% more. I like this a lot, and it does keep my coffee warmer than the old Mr. Coffee, especially if you cover the coffee cup between sips, or when you walk away for a bit! You'll see the COSORI in action on this week's show, or in the video below. $25.49 It got 3.9 out of 5 stars from 459 customers. There was a “5% off” box to check if you purchase one, which drops the price like a buck fifty or so. Prices as of 8/8/18 and they could change at any minute.
