Not blistering hot but seeing as how it's new and I freak out about everything I want the best for my baby.
check out targus pads, easy usb connect, light weight, good quality. you can touch one at a bestbuy before you order it from amazon.

Re: Pimp That Product

I use a laptop pad, it's extremely cheap, flimsy, makes loud noises when it starts and half the time the fans don't work. I did buy it at Micro Center for 10 bucks though, so that's to be expected. I honestly don't know whether the more expensive models are worth it, but when I got my laptop I felt I needed one because Toshiba's have a rep for overheating.

And you know what the funny thing is? I didn't even know who it was made by but after a quick glance at it and an online search, I found it for 28 bucks at Walmart.com.

PS don't buy this one.

Inland Notebook Cooling Pad: Computers : Walmart.com

And you know what you can't tell from the picture? The usb wire that connects to your laptop is exposed (i actually taped all the excess wire to the back of the pad) on top of the fact that the slightest jolt will cause one of the fans to stop working, or for it to make this loud noise that sounds like something's broken for like 5 minutes.

Unfortunately i dont think my pot allows for anymore oil than a pot that uses a paper filter. So maybe a french press is the only way to get that oil.
I got this recently, it makes an amazing cup of coffee

We get a 10% cut of sales. It's not much but it helps. Got a check last month for $7, woo-hoo!

Re: Pimp That Product

My father-in-law gave me one ofthose green pans you see on the infomercials. It's amazing, seriously. I was expecting a light-weight thin piece of Chinese crap that wouldn't last past a few uses when I saw them on TV.

In reality, it's a very high-quality, well made, heavy little frying pan. You season it with vegetable oil once before the first use like you would a cast iron skillet.

NOTHING sticks. If you would burn something, just run some water on it and give it a flick with the spatula and it's clean. The coating is amazing for cooking. I use it all of the time now and cleanup takes seconds...I run some water into it, add a squirt of dish soap and wipe it out with sponge or sometimes all it needs is a rinse and it's clean. I've used it about 20 times now and it looks brand new, not a scratch or stain.

It really is the perfect pan...for just $20.

Get one. Seriously.

Orgreenic™ 10' Fry Pan - Bed Bath & Beyond

The people complaining about sticking must not have prepped it right. Nothing sticks.

There's one review saying it scratched with the use of a fork. Well, yeah. You don't use metal in ANY nonstick pan... Wooden or plastic spatulas only.

I hope they make a bigger one or better yet, a square skillet.

FYI: If you do not need to use dish soap I would avoid it as it can add an unwanted tast to the food. That's even more important with cast iron stuff.
This pan has a smooth coating so it won't absorb it like cast iron or a pizza stone, but you're right in those cases.

This pan is as slick as a freshly-waxed car.
