I was looking for something versatile, something I could cook pizza in to satisfy the craving that one only gets when one cannot have something and I happened across the Ridgemonkey Sandwich Toaster XL. I already had the same branded kettle and I loved that so I took a punt on it over the cheaper copied versions available on that popular selling site on the interweb.
After many months of trying to rely on just 220 watts of solar panels, I realised I needed to up my game. The winter sun just wasn't cutting, my batteries were getting damaged by not being charged properly and the risk of battery death was high.
I love my coffee. It's my vice. I don't drink alcohol but my god can I knock back a few mugs of the black gold! Well, usually it's white, but you get my drift. I favour a flat white if I'm splashing out on a proper one. Those micro bubbles that give a certain thickness to the brew, not quite a white Americano, not quite a Cappuccino. But, in all honesty, I'll take it anyway it comes. As long as it's not cheap instant crap.
In the last year I have been savagely attacked by many kettles. I've been burned by scalding steam, soaked by failing handles, spat at by enthusiastic spouts. So much so, I am 100% sure there has been some kind of witchcraft spell type sorcery stuff that's been cast upon me.
