Gadget Videos

I've made hundreds of Excel videos, so when I get a new gadget, or having trouble with one of my gadgets, sometimes I make a video about that too. I hope these videos help you, if you're having similar problems.

Get Started With the Instant Pot Pressure Cooker

When you get a new Instant Pot Programmable Electric Pressure Cooker, all the buttons and settings can be confusing. If you're not sure how to get started, follow the basic steps in this video.

Insert My K-Cup into Keurig

I love my Keurig coffee maker, and buy the k-cups in bulk, to keep the cost down. I've also got a refillable gadget called My K-Cup, which really cuts the coffee costs. It's tricky to get the original basket out of the machine though, so this video show you how to remove it.

Fill Thermos Mug in Keurig

Instead of filling a mug with coffee, and dumping it into your tall travel mug, use this trick to make the coffee directly in your thermos.

How to Clean Roomba Front Wheel Well

If you clear the dust out of the iRobot Roomba front wheel well, the vacuum will work better. My Roomba was packed with dust, and the wheel wouldn't turn all the way around. I'd never cleaned it out before, but it was easy to pop out the wheel, and remove the dust.

Do this carefully though, and at your own risk! You could check with the manufacturer before you attempt this, if you are concerned about how to clean the front wheel well on your Roomba model.

Watch this video to see the steps to remove the Roomba wheel and have a clean Roomba wheel well.

Get Started with FoodSaver Vacuum Sealer

I bought a FoodSaver Vacuum Sealer to keep food from going to waste. It's easy to use, once you get started. This video will show you the basic steps.

How to Clean Your FoodSaver Vacuum Sealer

After you seal food with your FoodSaver Vacuum Sealer, you should clean the inside. Dry food can leave crumbs inside the sealer, and wet food can fill the tray with liquid.

See how to open the FoodSaver Vacuum Sealer, empty the trays, and clean the foam, gaskets, and roller.

Keep Coffee Fresh With FoodSaver Vacuum Sealer

If you buy ground coffee, you can seal some of it with the vacuum sealer, to keep it fresh until you're ready to use it.

Fiskars Uproot Weed Remover

My granddaughter would rather pick the pretty dandelions than pull them, but she agreed to help me with the yard work. In this short video, you can see her pulling a dandelion with our Fiskars Uproot Weed Remover.

The weed remover does a great job, especially when the ground is wet, after a rainfall. But still, it's a big job for a four-year-old, even when she is wearing her magic cape.

Change a Drink Dispenser into a Kids' Handwashing Station

Do you have an outdoor drink dispenser that never get used? I bought one on a whim last year, and only served lemonade in it a couple of times.

This year, I filled the dispenser with water from the hose, and set it up as a hand washing station for the kids (and me!) to use. It's much easier than wrestling with the hose, every time they get sand on their hands, and want to wash it off.

Now, instead of gathering dust in the basement, the drink dispenser is finally being used every day.
