I’m with sonsue with his one. Get individual knives, not a set, and definitely grab some kitchen shears (preferable ones that come apart for cleaning). If you need some way to store them, you can get a knife block like this one that will accommodate any knives. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07S4BPDDT/ref=cm_sw_em_r_mt_dp_wNFcGb86NJEFF
The best 3-hole punches I've seen were in government offices and they were always this Skilcraft punch. Total beast mode.
I honestly didn't know what the model name or number was; I didn't even know it had a model number, it's just "the hole punch you find in every government office building". I assumed they just sprouted in asbestos-laden corners naturally. (I'm apparently not the only one, if you look at the Amazon reviews for it, it's full of people saying stuff like "oh hey so this is where those Standard Issue Government hole punches come from!" Also, Skilcraft is basically the officially licensed product line of the Central Bureaucracy.)
Anyway, If you don't want to pay full price you could look around at Goodwill, Salvation Army, that sort of place, sometimes you find them around. Or get a properly beatass, seen-it-all one on eBay, although not for much less than a new one.
In terms of engraving, buy the punch and then take it to a trophy shop. Any decent local place should be able to make up a little brass or anodized aluminum plaque and stick it on there in an appropriately dignified location. It's probably not the weirdest thing they've ever seen given as an award.
BB Has them for 319$. I linked to this one because it's one of the models they seem to carry in many of their stores and it's a good value for the money.
I bought a Dell M4050 and I was disappointed with it.
Honestly these days an SSD is an SSD, you won't notice speed differences. Unless its for storage don't bother with Spinning disks. If your machine supports it go with a NVME. Stick with well known brands, crucial, WD and Samsung are where i'd start
I've been in IT for 20 years and this hasn't always been true but the past 5-10 years changed a lot. I have a 400MBPS and a 200MBPS both used exclusively for video game installations there is 0 noticeable difference when playing games.
This WD 2TB NVME for ~$225 is what i'd buy, considering some 2TB are going for $400 its a good vaule.
For the lazy among us it looks like you can buy them on Amazon too. My size is showing up as $20. Reviews are very strong
This container isn't the same lid configuration but it could serve a similar purpose. It seems like the lid can go on the bottom glass part with or without the plastic part but it doesn't look like the plastic would work as a container on its own
A plastic usps style pith helmet.
It's absolutely the best thing in the summer sun.
I'm a bit of a pith helmet collector and have a variety to choose from, but if I'm going out to do some yard work or vacationing I always grab the plastic mail man model. It's got a number of advantages over the others. It breathes well, it's light, and it's way more durable. I've never used another hat that can protect from the sun as well as a pith helmet either. They're just good at what they do.
I bought one like this one refurbished on woot.com for 150 bucks a couple of years back and love it. I see them listed on the site from time to time.

> the Google Nest Wi-Fi at $150,
You're only getting a single router for $150. How many points do you want exactly? It's only a mesh if you buy at least two.
I've got an older three point eero system, from the days before amazon acquired them, and it gets the job done.
Looks like the 3 point eero pack is only $170 which is much cheaper than a 3 point Nest set.
How much square footage are you trying to cover, and how much bandwidth do you have from your ISP? If you've got >500 megabit coming into your house, you might want to consider a "wifi 6" (802.11ax) system; the cheaper systems on the market (like the eero I linked and the current Google Nest) don't support "wifi 6". A mesh with "wifi 6" support is going to be more expensive; a mesh without "wifi 6" might start feeling pretty dated in 5 years as client devices with support become more common
I’ve found these or something similar work very well: https://smile.amazon.com/dp/B07L8YPYQK/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_glt_fabc_78ZNKNZ93S729GNWB57H They are Hard to lose and butane is relatively cheap. Depending on how much you want to spend most seem to work reliability for at least a few years and are useful for multiple applications.
> Have you looked at electric rechargeable lighters on Amazon?
I just bought one of these for $11 to keep in the car. Don't have it yet, but the idea is appealing. Reviews are pretty good.
Probably not much at all, gold leaf is flattened to 1/300th of an inch. So although they look nice, it's a very very small amount of gold by weight.
~~Do you have pictures? They sound pretty cool.~~
Found some on Amazon for $6.

A number of linux-ready models are great on their own but can also be used as powerful software-defined radio recievers. Worth looking into.
I love my tape dispenser that cuts the tape in small pieces, you can just pull them off with one hand.
It is mostly plastic but I absolutely love it. Makes it so you can pull from the center with little to no snagging
I got AquaSonic duo for 30$ on Amazon for Black Friday, and I'm really enjoying it. It's a steal for 2 brushes, and 10 brush heads!
I don't know water coolers, but have you considered using a filter instead? We have a 3 stage countertop filter that works well. We've had it for over 3 years now and it has shown no signs of breaking down. I'm pretty sure replacing filters for it is less expensive than buying water for a cooler.
The one I have doesn't seem to be available anymore, but here's one that seems pretty similar though it's designed to go under the sink rather than on the counter. You can also opt for 1 or 2 stage systems if you want one that takes up less space. I recommend staying with one that takes a standard size filter. That way you get to shop around for better price and/or quality rather than being stuck with what one manufacturer offers. Mine uses 10" filters as does the one I linked.
I ended up looking at something similar :) As someone who is regularly a bit over 200 lbs, I think a pillow without a metal skeleton inside is the way to go.
This is what I think I'm going to order.
I'd suggest something like this. Don't let that first picture confuse you, it gave me a bit of anxiety myself but I think it's just showing how the fan can move/tilt.
We have one similar to this and it's very powerful and sturdier and less tippy than a standard box fan.
For something right at your budget, the galaxy buds plus. Though for the best sound quality in a Bluetooth earbud, as well as a larger size, you can check out the Sony WF-1000 XM3 if you're willing to go a bit over budget.
As an aside, have you ever considered bone conductors like Aftershockz? They would be definitely easier to handle with your shaking, there's no need to replace tips either. The sound quality isn't going to be in as good of course, but I got a pair of Aftershockz Aeropex myself and I absolutely love them if it for no other reason than practically.
I have a dash toaster oven that air fries and has a built in rotisserie. Haven’t tried the rotisserie, but air fryer works great.
Dash Chef Series 7 in 1 Convection Toaster Oven Cooker, Rotisserie + Electric Air Fryer with Non-stick Fry Basket, Baking Pan & Rack, Skewers, Drip Tray & Recipe Book, 23L, 1450-Watt - Stainless Steel https://smile.amazon.com/dp/B07Y2L4FBJ/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_glc_fabc_y1d1FbRQK6KHP
My $15 target alarm clock plays the radio, the alarm clock, and the alarm clock radio if I so desire - and even can set the volumes for each independently!
It's a Capello CR22. The build quality feels a little chintzy, but it hasn't let me down yet over the past ~5 years. Target stopped selling them, in favor of cutting features for the cheaper models and adding them back at more expensive price points, but I found some on amazon.
I have slept through every alarm clock I've ever had, no matter how loud it is. Then I bought an alarm clock for deaf/hard of hearing people, and I've never slept through it. It's loud, plus I put the vibrating shaker in my pillowcase & I always wake up.
It has battery backup, but doesn't function normally if not plugged in. You might be able to find a similar one that can run on battery.
I got this one a couple months ago for around $70 and I love it. Looks like it's not available anymore which doesn't seem like a great sign...
This one looks very similar.
I have one from Joseph Joseph and it's better than any other press I have ever found. It's easy to clean with large holes, no moving parts that can break and you can use it to wash your hands when you're done so they don't smell like garlic anymore. Amazon link
Having the model with the numbered dial, it works just fine. But given my parents' situation, keeping an addition having too long a duct from the furnace, at or above a certain temperature. Given that, I would be tempted to spend the extra $20 or so for one of the models that has a thermostat that can be set to a specific temperature.
For example, these two models, the AVH2 and the AVH10. "10" is bigger than "2" -- meaning those model numbers, numerically -- and a few bucks cheaper, at the prices Amazon is showing me.
However, I like the images of the AVH2 showing how it has explicit, separate controls and settings for fan continuous or fan intermittent, and heat on or heat off. The 10 leaves you guessing just what controls you are permitted through its minimal push-button access.
P.S. But, I haven't really researched these, at all. I'm solely suggesting points to consider. Please confirm for yourself what exactly the models do and provide, if you are considering one of them.
I'm partial to these takeout containers. They cost pennies each, so cheap it's not really annoying when you leave one somewhere and it's no big deal to just give them away. They are air/watertight and microwave/dishwasher safe. The lids are also interchangeable. Only downside is they're only 8/16/32 ounce sizes, but I find it ample for anything other than large volumes of dry goods. Really helpful for meal prep and portioning too.
I have two of these for my pitbull mastiff who sheds a ton. I hose them down with dish soap every week and they last me for about 2 years at a time before they start to fray.

Put his regular lunch box inside a cool box with a few frozen cooling elements. Should do the trick.

I've been using a cool humidifier for years. Specifically this one which looks like its been discontinued.
It uses less energy compared to ultrasonic and steam humidifiers.
But you have to buy replacement wicks and do a bit of maintenance on them. If you just leave them to constantly be soaked and using it 24/7, you'll end up growing mold on them in like a week.
What I do is have 2 or 3 wicks in rotation so I can let them dry out. I also wash them occasionally with vinegar(make sure you thoroughly rinse them out or they'll make your room smell like vinegar.
The other thing thing(with my model at least) is you can occasionally hear a gurgling sound when the water tank is feeding water. I don't mind because it only last a couple seconds, but just a heads up.
Do you really just want toast? Or do you want the…
Panasonic Toaster Oven FlashXpress with Double Infrared Heating and Removable 9-Inch Inner Baking Tray, 12 x 13 x 10.25, Silver https://www.amazon.com/dp/B008C9UFDI/
…basically, this thing works fantastic for two slices of toast, and kicks ass at every other heat-related kitchen task you could throw at it.
When you don’t want to mess with “the big oven”, throw your leftover pizza, your chicken pot pie, your lonely single potato into this magical kitchen device and bask in its infrared glory and wholesome heat.
TLDR- you don’t want a toaster, you want toast… and furthermore your wants are not limited to “just toast” because I don’t think you live that kind of sad, ascetic existence.
I’ve had this for over a year and it works great.
Oster 2097682 2 Slice Toaster Metropolitan Collection with Rose Gold Accents, GRAY https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07Y5YBCRS/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_glt_i_JADJCR8ZDY3YF6PF98KW?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1
I purchased this: Polk Audio PSW10 10" Powered Subwoofer - Power Port Technology, Up to 100 Watts, Big Bass in Compact Design, Easy Setup with Home Theater Systems Black https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0002KVQBA/ but I got it renewed for $110. I don't have and complaints with it. It is loud and it thumps. Some people who are Audiophile's say it's not the best but I don't have the ear to know any better. With those two, I have a crisp loud high quality sound with tons of bass (you can crank the bass up or down depending on your desire). The Bluetooth speaker is great because you can skip songs, pause, play, volume.
I have the Shark Apex: https://www.amazon.com/Shark-AZ1002-Self-Cleaning-Brushroll-Upholstery/dp/B07FX5PCMN
I have 50/50 hardwood floor and carpet. The soft brush roll does wonders on the wood floors--it gets all the tiny dust off the floor. It also has these spikes near the main brush roll that prevent hair from getting wrapped around the brush roll. I have three women with long hair in my house--I think I've had to clean the brush roll maybe once or twice in the two years I've had it.
Lots of people love to shit on Shark. Are they the best quality? Probably not. Will you pass it down to your children? Probably not. But if you don't treat it like shit, change the filters once a year, and clean it up every now and then, it will last you a while.
There was an AMA a while ago here.
However, before I saw that AMA and found the r/vacuumcleaners sub, I simply bought a Bissell on sale for $78 new (similar to this one here).
My husband and I replaced our dyson ball (which only lasted 2 years) with our simple Bissell and our Bissell has been going strong for six years now with no complaints. We have shedding dogs too but mostly low carpet and hardwood floors. Very happy with the value we got out of our little Bissell.
Is this too bulky?
I was in the market for some speakers for my computer last year. After extensive research I decided on these.
Edifier R1700BTs Active Bluetooth Bookshelf Speakers - 2.0 Wireless Near Field Studio Monitor Speaker - 66w RMS with Subwoofer Line Out https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0886B1TWC/ref=cm_sw_r_apan_glt_fabc_GVGXEC7ZYM6DPFKZWYEM
I then purchased a 10-in subwoofer to go with it. Honestly it's one of the best purchases I've ever made. It has a remote control and it's Bluetooth and the sound quality is absolutely superb. I highly recommend. Just get a powered sub to go with it.
AFAIK, Wyze is the biggest/most well known brand with a sub-$100 smartwatch. That might be an option for balancing cost and quality.
I bought this for a fraction of the price: http://www.dx.com/p/q2-handy-abs-garlic-grinder-shredder-transparent-287812
However do note the taste of smashed vs crushed (vs minced!) garlic is different.
This is the most discreet one I could find. Has worked amazingly for nearly a year and a half. The temperature really doesn't make much difference IMO.
I started with the Lux Neo 180. It's a solid, entry level model. After a few years I did upgrade to a heated seat and water model and then bought a second one when we moved and house layout changed. Both models are great and the heated water is a very nice luxury, but not necessary.
As far as remotes, they're typically mounted on the wall (they come with mounts) and just provide convenient control of the bidet -- not really a thing to lose. They don't come off the wall in my household but about twice a year to adjust seat heating seasonally.
There’s even a prebuilt one. This is all the fancy air filters really do. There’s no need to add charcoal and generating ozone is potentially harmful.
I have three of these: Winix 5500-2 https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01D8DAYII/
They work very well. I noticed a difference within days of setting them up throughout my house. Whatever you decide on make sure it has a “True HEPA” filter. If it doesn’t say that exactly then it’s not a real HEPA filter.
Skip everything consumer grade marketed as an air purifier.
Grab a 4" inline duct fan and an activated carbon filter. (e.g. Amazon Canada Link).
It can run 24/7 for at least 4 years (that's what I'm on). The activated carbon filter will have to be changed every other year if you run in all the time (or sooner if your house is smellier than average).
This is the one I was looking at, but it looks like they are doing the same thing now.
Brother Monochrome Laser Printer, Compact All-In One Printer, Multifunction Printer, MFCL2710DW, Wireless Networking and Duplex Printing, Amazon Dash Replenishment Ready https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0763ZCH7K/ref=cm_sw_r_apan_glt_fabc_EXPW87ECA9FDK6TK625N
It seems like they've added some not ideal features. On the ones below, the reviews say you have to have toner with a brother chip, and the printer stops printing when toner is "low" even though there's plenty of toner left. Looks like they've joined everyone else on the dark side.
I've got these and I absolutely love them. metal frames are very tough, and the polarized lenses remain unscratched after 5 months of hard use, despite dropping them on asphalt/concrete several times.
Here's an Insignia 39" with 720p.
Am a lady, but these are the two that I go to for my everyday wear. I think Comfort Colors may even be a Gildan brand. Anyway, they hold up well, no issues with washing. The Gildan ones sometimes pill under the armpits, but it's not every shirt, just once in a while. I can't figure out if it's the material content or what. I just save those for sleep shirts or yard work but it might not bother you.
I've bought two of these and know at least one other person who's bought one upon my recommendation, it's super quiet and absolutely fantastic.
In the past you would have never needed one of these for a car. Cars were once equipped with 12 v cigarette lighters, these are now 12 v called power outlets.
I have no idea if it’s good quality, but I think this is exactly what you are describing. It’s like the floor mattress but with a ratcheting frame to prop your torso up. Giantex Floor Folding Gaming Sofa Chair Lounger Folding Adjustable 14-Position Sleeper Bed Couch Recliner (Gray) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B073DWN65X/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_glt_fabc_JQXHFVDYFBC2K3DYJMY9
Unfortunately even when I'm in better health I'm like 205 lb so I would probably break it :p
That is a new line of items to check out though, so thank you. It seems like husband pillow type of items isn't the only item to look at. Although I might be better off with that so I don't have to worry about crushing a mechanical inner frame...
Looking through all of these, Amazon is starting to recommend stuff! This doesn't look too bad. I'm probably going to use what I get with something else like a couch or bed so maybe this will be better than the ones that are a chair.
And if you want even more of a seal to outside noise, grab these tips for the them.

Try a radiant oil heater. Doesn’t blow but gives off consistent heat.
TCL is my go to for TVs now. They have Roku built in, so they have the streaming services available. They're incredibly inexpensive too, you can get the TV and a soundbar for less than your budget off Amazon.
I have this Vornado one. I used it on my desk at work for a couple years and now it’s been running 24/7 for about a year and a half as white noise for my toddler. I was really surprised by how powerful it was and it was only $18.
Cheap, powerful, compact, metal and sturdy.
Though getting individual ones is a good idea, this set by Mercer is $150 and doesn't have any extraneous ones. They're often sold at restaurant supply stores, which is where I recommend getting steak knives. Forschner is what I use.
I live in Minnesota and I use these gloves for everyday stuff like driving to work. I use these mittens for more heavy duty stuff like shoveling snow.
I didn't feel like spending loads of money and grabbed these for running:
Pretty comfortable (if you like that form factor), stay in place while running. I paired them with my watch. I don't do anything else with them.
I grabbed these too just to try out the different form factor. Not as good for running, but fine for general wireless earbuds:
I don't use the controls on either of them, just on my watch/phone. Does the trick and pretty good value.
I think they are. And they are a collaboration with a Mountain Bike shoe company. I got mine on Amazon. These ones https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07T7FXKV9/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1
I have most of Anker’s products and they are all excellent. Like really impressive. From their flashlights (very durable and bright) to their speakers to their cables to their headphones, it is all outstanding

We bought cliear SAN plastic hammered pattern from a local restaurant supply wholesaler, that have a showroom & will sell to the general public, like this restaurant or food service supply store. Most are hammered, clear or pebbled patterns, few if any printed patterns.
Small space heaters with 500 to 1500 watts are readily available. One option is available as amazon basics I have also seen the same heater sold under a couple of brands at brick and mortar stores.
If you want a USB space heater your best bet is a laptop that charges from USB-C running something like folding at home. Even then you would need several to match that cheap 500w space heater. A desktop could actually get into that range.
Off topic since these aren't airtight but for shit like salt, sugar, etc, these are superb. Pick it up with one hand and use your thumb to flip the lid open and pinch it out with the other hand. You'll thank me later.
I've been kind of obsessed for a while with coming up with the most cost and space-efficient configuration for being able to charge and transfer stuff for any device, and I've been trying different solutions for a while.
I definitely do not recommend the octopus cable idea. If one of the connectors fails, the whole thing is useless and needs to be resoldered or replaced, which is either time consuming or expensive after a while.
I also tried getting an A-to-A extension cord with different connectors, and that was okay, but it was a little annoying that I needed to put on an adapter literally every time I used it.
My current setup is 1 normal cable that's the type I most commonly use (In my case, C-to-C for charging my phone), and using small adapters like these when I need to use it for other stuff.
I buy the adapters in packs, so if it fails I can just swap it out in my kit for a working one. I keep them in one of those small Altoids Mini mint tins, they take up practically zero space.
I've been using this one for a couple months with zero complaints. It seems well made and it's a pretty small one but still can fit a few bottles of wine or a case of cans.
I don't put actual ice in it, I use reusable freezer packs, but I haven't had any leaks so far.
I have the perfect solution for you. I have the 3rd gen of this fitbit chinese knockoff, but for the price it is amazing. This is the newest one I think. Amazing quality for the price. https://www.amazon.com/Xiaomi-Mi-Band-5-Black/dp/B08B1MGGYY
I have this one and I can't recommend it enough. Beautiful quality and fast. I scanned hundreds and hundreds of family photos in with it in no time.
I recently purchased this and so far it’s been the best kettle I’ve owned. It is very solid and the ergonomics are great. The lid is a little small though.

Thirded. Oxo Pop are trash. We love our Brilliance Pantry set and will eventually get another one (or two!) and regular storage containers, too, though we generally prefer glass.
These are around $100, but I really enjoy the aftershockz bone conducting headset for running. It's excellent for calls too. Great because it doesn't obstruct your ears so you can hear your environment. Conversely, it makes them crappy for loud activities like lawn mowing.

Ok but what's the difference beetween that, a 100$ record player v.s these 2, much cheaper, record players: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07DYSFFBG/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_AkSFDbQ270JFP and https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01MQ2RBTZ/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_CnSFDbP71FNPX like, why should i buy that one when there's cheaper and better looking ones? Btw thanks for the help
So I've never purchased a standalone air dehumidifier.
I can vouch for this portable AC doing well(cooling and dehumidifying) for 8 months in Southwest Texas. I never had to drain the thing so the auto evaporate feature worked quite well. Didn't have it in July/August and I'm assuming you're talking about closer to Houston if you're that worried about humidity. The unit didn't break when I had it(moved and no longer needed it so I gave to a family member that did). I believe it is still in use but I have no idea about the proper longevity. Based on the Amazon reviews, I'd guess it wouldn't be a long term solution but in terms of portable ACs it was still the best I could find for Texas.
My guess is someone from Houston/Corpus/Florida will be able to help more on specialized dehumidifiers.
I have a pair of these that I bought at Costco years ago. I think I paid around $10. They're obviously not super thick, but they keep me warm into the 20s F (lowest temps we really get in my area). For reference, I have poor circulation and get cold easily but layer my core well if it's cold. The tech fingertip coating is starting to wear off after about 5 years of wear.
Fannyc Lint Remover Clothes Fuzz... https://www.amazon.com/dp/B074W7SGJS?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share
I picked this one up before Christmas. Works great for me. I would recommend it. It also has great reviews on Amazon.
I've had really good experience with this one, bought one for my bedroom and another for the living room
I currently have this radiator-style heater to heat my studio. It's pretty slow though and I have to keep it on the opposite side of the room because that's the only place I can plug it in.
I'm wondering if something like the Vornado would be better to push the air towards the other half of the studio where I sleep. What size room do you use it in? The amazon page says it's good up to 256 sq ft and my studio is about 500 total, but the actual living area may be closer to 300.
I can definitely recommend the Panasonic ER1611. While pricey, it cuts amazingly well, mine has yet to degrade in any way. I've seen it used at multiple barbers, I think it is built for actual professional use. You can buy spare rechargable batteries when the ones inside are worn out.
This will outlast your children. I've been using one since 2010 and it has never skipped a beat. Head, beard, whatever, it can handle it!
If you really need more power (and you don't), get this.
I bought one of these and I'm very happy with it. Looks relatively nice, it's durable, and works well for wiping your feet on.
Try looking at these. I was in the market for a larger axe than the 20" that I currently have and I came down to either this or stepping up to Granfors Bruks or Wetterlings. For the cost to quality I don't think these can easily be beat.
This one, TCL is a good brand they make good computer monitors.
And for 329 dollars u cant do better than that.

I've had 0 issues with this, $25 bucks, amazon best seller.
Don't know why everyone doesn't buy this type exclusively. I've recommended and helped install this to other people as well. It tilts left and right, so you don't even really need to mount it perfect.

This is the one I used, I was more concerned with weight than insulating value for my trip. For 0-degree and car camping I'd look for something with a higher insulating value if you aren't worried about bulk or weight. A sleeping pad helps limit body heat loss into the ground and I would say is pretty much necessary for cold weather camping. Check out and search posts in /r/backpacking and /r/campingandhiking for some more suggestions. Hope this helps.
If you do want to cook it directly in the pot, you can spend a couple bucks more and get a "noodle cooker" (Example), which usually have a stainless steel interior and a fully encapsulated heating element. Another option is to use a little cheap rice cooker, which can then do double duty as, well, a rice cooker.
I have this one: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B009EETKVI/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o05_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
That brand makes other sizes / colors. Honestly, I can't recommend it enough. I've had it for a year now and have slept on it every single night in that period of time. It definitely has gotten a bit "worn in" and isn't as cushy as it used to be, but it's still super comfortable.
Honestly, the only problem I've had with it is that it did have a very strong smell at first, but some fabric spray and a day of airing out worked wonders. Would also highly recommend a mattress protector.
Feel free to message me if you have any questions at all!
An immersion boiler would be the smallest and cheapest thing, so long as you have a bowl/vessel to cook in. Less than $10. Just don't ever plug it in without it being in water or let it boil dry, or it will blow out almost instantly.
Sony makes the best quality headphones. Not the sexiest looking, but as far as audio high-fidelity, Sony owns it.
Professionals in recording studios swear by the Sony MDR-7506, but it's $100.
For your price range, I'd pick the Sony MDR 7502, still considered professional-grade headphones.
I am very happy with these:

you can get it here
if your kitchen faucet head screws on, then it's easy.
i would get a test kit to see what issues you have,
then get 1-2 stages to address the major ones.
my guess is chicago water is more treated than nyc,
so your solution may be more demanding than mine.
I bought this one back in January for use in my upstairs. I've only used it with laminate flooring, but I love it. It's so nice to have the little handheld bit to do stairs and window frames.
