Ok Newegg's deals on 860 Evos are way too good. I pulled the trigger on one, now to see how well this whole Newegg Philippines thing works.  :silly: >:D

Last month, we bought a dolce gusto coffee machine. Snazzy looking, but the flavors are a bit too sweet for my liking. I like the zojirushi coffeemaker but needs cleaning after every use.

What's on my mind? Pool cues.

Should i go for simple mezz cue (made in japan) that's in the 20~25k range or a simple blackjack (35k) (Made in China, supervised and inspected by japanese) cue by Jun Shimizu (of keith andy) ?.

planning to buy an electric oven. some questions in my mind: which brand is good and how much will the use of oven raise my electricity bill.

the first thing i'll probably cook in an oven is potato gratin lol.

Unless you are using distilled water, thats normal. Wouldn't worry about it.

It would depend on the size of the oven you plan to get...
table top ovens have a range of about 2000 to 3000 watts.
full size ovens can reach up to 5000 watts.

Current Meralco rates is Php 12 per kWh
a small 2000-watt oven would consume about Php 24 per hour of use.
a full size 5000-watt oven can use up to Php 60 per hour

Actually he should be worried... because that part of the coffee maker doesn't really get hot.
I use filtered tap water for our coffee machine and we don't get any residue on the water reservoir.

Filtering won't help. Minerals in solution can only be removed by distillation. Thats just calcium carbonates and calcum phosphates anyway. Harmless, but if it really bothers the OP, use distilled water.

My coffee maker gets some limescale buildup after a while even when using filtered water. I just use a limescale removal solution specifically formulated for coffee makers once in a while as part of regular maintenance.

Hey, I think using distilled water is a good idea. I guess, that's what I'm going to do from now on.

That's precisely my point, I only use filtered tap water and yet my coffee maker doesn't get any calcium deposits on the reservoir... my guess is that your provider is using "hard water" (or deep well water) hence my recommendation to change provider. Your coffee maker will eventually become inefficient if the heating plate becomes encrusted with too much calcium deposits.

Distilled water will make coffee taste more bitter...

the most durable ovens are those made by La Germania
ours is a 60L capacity oven and is more than 20 years old... no body rust, no chipped porcelain coating and heating elements are still available.

i bought a la germania range hood recently and the salesman told me that they use the good kind of stainless steel so its more resistant to rust than other brands.  seems to be true with your experience

Scheduled to arrive at 5pm today! If it gets in then it would have been a pretty painless order procedure, and package is just one day late (initial estimate said it would arrive yesterday).

My last delivery from Amazon was a couple of days late from the initial estimate. (The extra day was on a Sunday and UPS' re-delivery was scheduled on Monday.) Still much faster than going through forwarding services like Shipping Cart.
I almost pulled the trigger on the Crucial MX500 1TB SSD on sale during the last Amazon Prime Day but then I realized, I just bought a Samsung 970 EVO 500GB last month so I didn't really need it.
