  • building a room map
  • infrared sensors

I will start my top with the Xiaomi MiJia Sweeping Robot G1 robot vacuum cleaner. Xiaomi robot vacuum cleaners always get into the TOPs because of their good functionality and affordable price. MiJia G1 – 2020 model, designed for dry, wet and combined cleaning of surfaces. The first function is implemented using two side brushes (which is unusual for Xiaomi robots – more often they have one brush) and a floating design turbo brush under the bottom. Air purification occurs through a system of three filters, so the device eliminates all microparticles and allergens. For wet cleaning, a nozzle with microfiber and a 200 ml water tank are provided. At the same time, the liquid supply is automatic, dosed.

The water tank is equipped with electronic control with three stages of liquid supply. This allows you to choose the necessary mode for processing any type of surface. I would like to specially note small body height (8.2 cm)which allows the vacuum cleaner to pass under furniture without problems, and its ability to overcome thresholds up to 17 mm.

It works in 4 power modes.: There are quiet, standard, high and maximum. The robot is equipped with sensors for detecting obstacles, falling, as well as a gyroscope and an odometer, with which it orients itself in space. Although the MiJia G1 vacuum cleaner belongs to budget equipment, he builds a map of the premises, correctly plans the route of movement, independently goes to the base for recharging and returns to finish cleaning, and also allows you to set up a cleaning schedule and limit the duration of cleaning. Like all Xiaomi robots, MiJia G1 can work in the Smart Home system and accepts voice control. On a single charge, the robot works up to 90 minutes.

  • Good cleaning quality.
  • Wet wiping the floor (metered water supply).
  • The charge is enough to clean a room of 50 sq. m with double passage in some places (and the charge still remains).
  • Good navigation. Does not cut into skirting boards, furniture.
  • App control.
  • Schedule cleaning.
  • Inexpensive considering the equipment.
  • Not suitable for deep pile carpet.
  • Can get stuck under batteries, cabinets.
  • There is no movement in a spiral (only along the perimeter and with its own algorithm).
  • Chinese “firmware” (in mi home you need to switch to the Chinese region).

Price from 10,000 rubles. Let it not have a surface type recognition function for automatic power boost, like the irobot Roomba 676, or different types of brushes for smooth surfaces and carpets, like the ilife A8. But on the other hand, Xiaomi G1 has a more capacious battery, which makes it last longer on a single charge, a three-stage water supply to the microfiber for wet cleaning and remote control via the application, and this at a lower price.

Taking into account the ability to build a map of the room and logically plot the route of movement, as well as to carry out high-quality cleaning of the surface and wiping with a damp cloth, 87% of users recommend the MiJia G1 robot vacuum cleaner for purchase.

What Is a Blender and Who Invented It? What Types of It Exist, How to Use It and What You Can Cook in It


What is a blender and who invented it? What types of it exist, how to use it and what you can cook in it

What is a blender and who invented it? What types of it exist, how to use it and what you can cook in itA blender is a multifunctional device that allows you to cut, mix and whip foods.

At the same time, the full set of its capabilities varies significantly depending on the type of device.

Consider why this device is needed and who invented it, what types of it exist and what it does, as well as what dishes can be cooked using this device.

What is a blender and who invented it?

The word blender comes from the English blender – to mix. This unit is one of the oldest units for the kitchen. Older than him is only a meat grinder (25 years).

The first such device was invented by Stephen Poplawski in 1922. The idea for this device came to him in an attempt to automate the preparation of a drink “soda fountain”. In the USSR, such a drink was known as “soda with syrup”, which was sold everywhere in special vending machines.

The first of these units was a container on a stand. At the bottom of the bowl was a propeller-like knife that could only mix ingredients, but not cut. In fact, it was the first prototype of a stationary blender.

It became widespread during Prohibition in the United States due to the fact that alcohol in establishments began to be secretly served only as part of cocktails (to avoid police claims). The blender at that time allowed bartenders to automate the preparation of drinks and meet the increased demand.

A modern blender can easily replace a food processor. Its main advantage is that it is quite small and easy to handle, which allows it to be used without any extra effort. With the help of this unit, you can easily chop, chop and whip the ingredients for dishes.

Types of devices and their differences

Existing types of blenders:

  • submersible;
  • stationary.

A stationary blender is a device that consists of a technical block and a mixing glass with knives at the bottom.

The advantage of this type of device is that, unlike a submersible blender, you do not need to constantly hold the device in your hands to grind food.

The disadvantage of a stationary blender is that you can only mix the ingredients in the attached bowl. But it is great for making various cocktails and smoothies.

An immersion blender differs from a stationary blender in wider functionality. The device consists of two parts of a hardware unit and a nozzle, while the number and functionality of nozzles may be different.

Pros of an immersion blender:

  • You can grind food in any utensils resistant to mechanical stress, which allows you to work with any amount of ingredients
  • A large number of attachments that expand functionality (whisk, chopper, etc.)
  • It doesn’t take up much space in the kitchen.


  • You must keep the device in your hands at all times.
  • Not suitable for cooking liquid foods

Blender bowls and containers can be made of plastic, glass and metal. At the same time, glass, with careful handling, is the most durable and environmentally friendly. Nozzles are made of stainless steel or plastic.

Professional blenders are distinguished into a special type of device. They have a large bowl capacity, power and high reliability, but their price is much higher. Also, as you can already understand from the name, such devices can be not only for home use, but also for commercial use.

As a result, the difference between devices in grinding products lies in different purposes. The stationary one copes better with mixing and whipping liquid consistency, and the submersible one with cutting and grinding harder products.

Useful functions of blenders

Here are the most popular blender features:

  • Mixing – one of the most popular features allows you to mix and simultaneously whip liquids and suspensions until smooth. This function is the main one for stationary devices.
  • Shredding and cutting – allows you to grind products to the desired consistency. In some models, the duration and intensity of slicing can be controlled manually, which allows you to achieve the optimal consistency of products for each dish from slicing to puree.
  • whipping – many hand blenders have this mode thanks to the whisk attachment. Allows in some cases to replace the mixer, but in terms of power it is still inferior to it.

Additional functions and features:

  • Ice cube.
  • Preparation of mixtures in a vacuum environment (allows you to keep the freshness of cocktails longer).
  • Speed ​​control and turbo mode (allows you to control the speed and intensity of the device).
  • Grate food directly into the cooking bowl thanks to the grater attachment.
  • In expensive models, there is a dough kneading function using special “hooks” nozzles. Thanks to them, the dough is kneaded evenly and does not stick to the walls of the bowl.

What can be cooked in a blender?

With the help of a blender, you can cook a huge number of dishes:

  • puree soups;
  • cocktails;
  • sauces;
  • salads;
  • various desserts.

Here are some of the most popular dishes and the general principle of making puree soups.

The principle of making puree soups using the example of mushroom cream soup

In order to cook creamy mushroom soup from champignons, you need:

  • 500 grams of potatoes of any size.
  • 150 grams of onion.
  • 600 grams of water.
  • 250 grams of mushrooms (fresh or frozen).
  • 200 grams of cream 10-20% fat.
  • salt (at your discretion).

At the beginning, onion is cut into small cubes and fried in refined vegetable oil for 5 minutes at medium temperature until golden brown.

Mushrooms are cut into medium pieces (you can cut a few pieces along the “mushroom shape” for decoration). Chopped champignons are added to the fried onion and fried together for 7-10 minutes to enhance the taste and aroma.

Next, a pot of water is placed on the stove and potatoes are prepared (peeled and cut into pieces the size of a walnut). After boiling, the potatoes are thrown into the water and boiled until cooked for about 15 minutes.

After that, add the onion-mushroom mixture to the pan and cook for another 5 minutes, and then grind the pieces of vegetables in the soup with a blender to a puree state.

The last step is to add cream to the prepared mixture and, stirring, bring to a boil. The dish is decorated with slices of fried mushrooms and herbs.

The general principle of preparing all such soups is grinding the solid components to a homogeneous puree-like mass, while the base of the soup can be any: vegetable as in the presented recipe or on the broth.

The recipe for curd mass is extremely simple.

To make curd mass, you need:

  • about 500 grams of cottage cheese
  • 4-5 large spoons of sour cream
  • salt and sugar to taste

Proportions are approximate and may vary. Also, if desired, you can add various berries and jam.

An immersion blender is the best way to prepare this dish. All ingredients are loaded into the dishes and ground to a homogeneous mass for 2-3 minutes.

Milk shake

A stationary blender will do better with a milkshake.

The principle of its preparation is to whip milk and ice cream with various fillers. In this case, the ratio of ingredients can be very different depending on preferences. For example, for a classic milkshake, a glass of milk and a couple of scoops of creamy ice cream will suffice.

Of course, this is not all that can be cooked with a blender, there is hundreds of recipes using this device.

What can you grind in a blender?

In a blender, you can grind many ingredients.

The most popular of them are:

  • Vegetables, fruits and berries – cucumbers, tomatoes, carrots, cabbage, eggplants, zucchini, onions, pumpkins, apples, bananas, pears, etc. Almost any berries can be chopped. It is important to mention that when making mashed potatoes with a blender, it becomes more viscous and dense due to starch and what consistency will not be to everyone’s taste. You should also refrain from blending apples with metal nozzles, since when in contact with metal, the apple oxidizes and changes its taste.
  • Various greens – parsley, dill, green onion.
  • nuts – peanuts, walnuts, cashews, almonds and others. In this case, they can be crushed to a paste state.
  • Meat – beef, pork, veal, lamb. The resulting minced meat has a slightly different, denser texture, which makes the cooked meat more uniform, but less juicy.
  • The blender can also be used as a coffee grinder – grind coffeeand break ice in the presence of a special grinder.

For better processing, it is recommended to pre-cut all products into pieces, and boil especially hard ones.

Rating of the Best Video Recorders Up to 5000 Rubles (TOP 6)


In this rating, we have collected the TOP 6 best budget DVRs of 2022. DVRs have recently become a dense part of the lives of motorists as a means of proving their innocence in an accident or simply to fix unforeseen encroachments on a car by intruders. The average cost of a video recorder reaches 10,000 rubles. At the same time, the functionality is fundamentally not different. Some users claim that the top models give the best quality, some even write that in 4K resolution. But such devices are demanding on the quality of memory cards and sometimes freeze.

As the experience of drivers and the opinion of experts shows, an inexpensive DVR worth up to 5,000 rubles is enough to monitor the traffic situation and car safety. Among them, there are quite a few frankly weak ones – both in terms of shooting quality, and in terms of functionality and reliability. But we tried and selected the best models in this price range. When selecting, the emphasis was on the quality of the recording and ease of use, the opinions of the owners and reviews of experts were taken into account.

Table of participants in the rating of video recorders up to 5000 rubles in 2022

  • battery life: 10 min
  • memory card support: microSDHC
  • operating temperature: -20 – +60 °C

Opens my TOP Slimtec Alpha XS. It stands out from the background of most competitors in the rating by its form factor and resembles a budget digital camera: a 3-inch display is a noticeably protruding lens on the front panel. Control buttons on the right and left sides. The menu is intuitive, there are no alternative control methods. There is a speaker, the mount is made with a clutch and rotates 360 degrees, which can be useful for fixing the behavior of traffic police officers and generally increases the possibility of setting the view. In terms of functionality, we compare with competitors:

  • Motion Sensor – works only when there is movement in the frame.
  • shock sensor – fixes the moment of an accident and protects the file from cyclic overwriting.
  • Parking mode – captures what is happening in the parking lot from the moment when the situation in the field of view ceases to be static.

The minus of the model compared to its competitors is the maximum supported memory card capacity – 32 GB. Price – 4,000 rubles.

  • Ease of operation.
  • Rotates 360 degrees on the mount.
  • Display.
  • Overpriced.
  • Sound recording quality.
  • Fastening quality.
  • The quality of shooting at night.
  • Recording does not always start when the engine is started.
  • Supports memory cards up to 32 GB.

Not a bad device in terms of functionality, but compared to competitors, it has a number of drawbacks. It works with MicroSD up to 32 GB, while in practice it inexplicably does not see some flash drives even of class 10 recommended by the manufacturer. The quality of shooting at night is also worse than some competitors. At a price of 4,000 rubles, this is unacceptable. For example, Roadgid Duo wins in all these parameters and also has a second camera. Artway AV-405 costs 500 rubles less, while being controlled by a smartphone and equipped with a Wi-Fi module.

  • memory card support: microSDHC
  • built-in microphone

Fifth place goes to Artway AV-405. For a modest price (about 3500 rubles) The model offers truly top functionality. Based on the Novatek NT96672 processor and optics of 6 glass lenses with a viewing angle of 140 degreeswhich allows you to record the traffic situation both in front of the car and on the sides, while the quality of the recording does not deteriorate significantly – signs, traffic lights, what is happening in the neighboring and oncoming lanes, in most cases, is perfectly visible. Matrix – 2 MP, recording is in MP4 format, Full HD resolution on a memory card 8-64 GB.

The operation of the model is fully automated – start/stop operation when starting/stopping the engine, recording in the parking lot when there is no static in the field of view of the registrar, fixing the moment of an accident while parking / in the absence of a driver in the car, protecting an important file from cyclic overwriting. Pthe user can view and edit the video on the smartphone in a few seconds, built-in Wi-Fi module and a special application will help with this. From a smartphone, you can control the functionality of the registrar, if necessary. The recorder itself does not have a built-in screen.

  • Hidden connection. Instead of a cigarette lighter adapter, the kit includes a cable that is hidden under the casing. This releases the cigarette lighter socket.
  • Viewing angle.
  • Low power consumption in standby mode.
  • Built-in WiFi.
  • Smartphone control.
  • Build quality.
  • For some users, the lack of a cigarette lighter plug is a disadvantage.
  • Interface and Russification of the application for a smartphone.
  • Fixed mount – does not rotate in a horizontal plane.

Great option for its price. There are nuances, for example, the recording function in case of an accident while parked requires 2-5 seconds to start the recorder and start recording video, the culprit of the accident has a chance to escape. But the rest of the rating participants in this regard work the same way. Our team recommends Artway AV-405 for high quality shooting and value for money. If you already pay a lot of money, then, for example, for devices with two cameras Roadgid Duo or 70mai Dash Cam A400. In the latter case, a second chamber is offered as an option. Fujida Zoom Hit, which is in 4th place, deserves attention, but its features have become critical for us in the distribution of positions in the ranking.

In fourth place is Fujida Zoom Hit. Pretty popular Chinese device. Compact – 57x48x35 mm, with a wide viewing angle of 170 degrees, HDR support and the possibility of stable long-term operation in the temperature range from -35 to +55 degrees in the absence of a built-in battery. The manufacturer claims that due to the equipment of the device with a special “supercapacitor”, it will work in extreme conditions longer than its competitors.. To what extent this is true, it is not possible to check in the framework of this study due to the need for a large time period for testing the device in such conditions.

But what aboutn automatically turns off when removed from the mount – a clear minusYou can’t watch video on it. In addition to the main mode, there is a shock sensor and a motion sensor – tracking static in the visibility zone, recording the moment of an accident while parking and protecting important files from overwriting. Works with microSD from 8 to 64 GB. The price is about 5,000 rubles.

  • Viewing angle.
  • A supercapacitor that works according to the manufacturer in any conditions.
  • Overpriced.
  • Materials and build quality.
  • There are problems with auto-on, sometimes after a long period of inactivity it does not work. It also does not work if you install the recorder in the mount after starting the engine.
  • USB connection via mount. At home, you can watch the recordings only through a USB flash drive.
  • Does not rotate horizontally.
  • It turns off immediately when removed from the mount.

Despite the identified technical flaws in the start of the recording, flaws in the quality of the assembly, the impossibility of autonomous operation (outside the mount), 97% of Yandex Market users recommend the model for purchase. We join, but we give this registrar the 4th place in the rating. Particularly because of the high price. Rating leaders are cheaper and can offer interesting additional functionality. So, Roadgid Duo is equipped with two cameras, 1S Midrive D06 boasts voice control, though not without flaws, but more on that later.

  • built-in microphone

Bronze medalist – Roadgid Duo. Outwardly, in terms of functionality and controls, it is similar to Artway AV-405. True, the lens of 6 lenses is made in a rectangular shape, which subjectively looks less modern. Of the technical differences – the presence of a second camera. It can be connected using the included HDMI cables in different lengths and used as a parking aid or a rearview mirror.. The recording quality is worse than that of the main module (640×480 pixels), but in practice this is enough for most users. You can install it in the cabin or outside.

For proper installation and long-term operation in the second case, the manufacturer and experts recommend seeking help from specialists. The main camera shoots at a resolution of 1920 × 1080 pix at 30 fps, supports a wide dynamic range, has a viewing angle of 140 degrees. In terms of functionality, everything is standard: motion sensor, shock sensor, parking mode. The price is 5,000 rubles.

  • Reliability – passive cooling system protects against overheating.
  • Ease of operation.
  • Viewing angle.
  • 2 cameras.
  • Display.
  • Dimensions compared to competitors.
  • The quality of the second camera is mediocre.
  • Sometimes the auto-on does not work when starting the engine.
  • Sometimes it pops out of the mount.
  • On a bad road, buttons rattle.
  • Weak battery.
  • Sometimes hangs.
  • The memory card must be formatted manually after it is completely full, or rummaging through the settings, turning off unnecessary options to activate cyclic overwriting.

A very popular video recorder in our country. We recommend to inexperienced drivers who can really come in handy with a parking assistant. For the rest, we advise you to consider the video recorders of the Xiaomi subsidiary brand, which get both prizes in the ranking.

How to Make Cappuccino in a Coffee Machine: Recipe, Video. How to Make Foam?


Question: how to make cappuccino in a coffee machine worries a lot of people. Even for professional baristas, this drink remains quite difficult to prepare – in order to get a soft, but at the same time bright and balanced taste, you need to train for more than one month. In today’s article, we will look at what a cappuccino is, how to make cappuccino in a coffee machine, as well as the features of the machines for making this coffee drink.

The difference between cappuccino and other drinks

There is a significant difference between cappuccino, latte, mocha and other drinks. So, the serving method is different – the average capacity of a cappuccino cup is 180 ml, while the volume of a latte or mocha cup is at least 240 ml. The difference also lies in the type of foam – in cappuccino it is denser and thicker, in other coffee drinks it is lighter. And of course, the main difference between cappuccino and other coffee-based drinks is the strength and taste. For example, latte and mocha have a smooth and mild taste, coffee is almost not felt. Cappuccino, on the other hand, has a brighter coffee flavor due to a shot of espresso.

What characteristics should a cappuccino coffee machine have?

We have come to the main question: how to prepare cappuccino in a coffee machine? First of all, the coffee machine must meet certain requirements necessary for making a drink.

Note that the result does not depend on whether Saeco or Bosch will be used, but on the technical characteristics and skills of the person. We recommend that you pay attention to the following characteristics:

  1. Device type. There are automatic and semi-automatic coffee machines, which differ in how they work. The first type is the most common: all operations are carried out automatically, the user only needs to substitute a mug to serve coffee – the question of how to make cappuccino at home disappears by itself. “Semi-automatic” are professional devices that are often used by baristas. The preparation process is several times more complicated (at first) than working with automation, but the result is a much tastier and more aromatic cappuccino.
  2. Cappuccinatore type. Cappuccinatore – a device for frothing milk into foam. There are automatic models (most often they come as part of automatic coffee machines), there are manual models. In the first case, the program will whip the milk itself to the required condition – you only need to substitute a container for receiving milk. In the second case, the milk is whipped by hand, using a jet of steam from the cappuccinatore. We consider the second method to be preferable.
  3. Possibility of warming mugs. When wondering how to make a cappuccino in a coffee machine, remember: the mugs must be warmed up before serving the drink. To do this, the upper part of some devices is specially warmed up so that mugs can be placed on them.

Above, we have named the basic rules, and the volumes, number of posts and power of the coffee machine do not affect the quality of the final product.

Rules for making cappuccino

If you have an automatic machine, then preparing a cappuccino takes one operation: select the desired mode on the machine, press the button and get the drink ready. For those who are interested in how to make coffee on a semi-automatic machine, we have made the following instructions:

  1. Prepare a mug in advance in which you will pour coffee. To do this, heat it to medium temperature (so that it is warm, but not hot).
  2. Place the ground coffee from the grinder (or ready ground coffee) into the holder. The value of one bookmark must be equal in height to the height of the holder’s container.
  3. Gently compress the coffee in the holder. Note: the press should lie down at an angle of 90 degrees, the coffee tab itself should be uniform (do not exfoliate, do not crumble).
  4. The holder is installed on the post, the coffee machine turns on. A portion of espresso coming out from under the post should be poured into a pre-prepared mug.
  5. At the same time, prepare the milk. The first question at this stage is: what kind of milk is suitable for cappuccino and how to brew it? The answer is simple: choose based on your own interests. The most commonly used milk is 1% fat. Milk is best taken at room temperature.
  6. The next question is how to whip milk for cappuccino in a coffee machine? To do this, you need to take a good milk jug (standard volume – 300 ml), fill it 3/4 with milk. After that, we check the supply of steam in the cappuccinatore. Is the pressure good? Then turn on the cappuccinatore and bring the milk jug under the cappuccinatore at an angle of 45 degrees. Important: the cappuccinatore should be immersed in milk no more than 2.5-3 cm. With smooth movements, the milk is whipped until foam is formed.
  7. The frothed milk is poured into a mug, where the espresso is already located.

Recommendation: how to make cappuccino foam dense enough. To do this, it is necessary to supply steam at low pressure and keep the milk jug until it is hot. In order to make the foam more airy, it is necessary to supply steam at high pressure and periodically change the depth of immersion of the cappuccinatore into milk.

For an illustrative example, we recommend that you familiarize yourself with the video with a detailed consideration of a number of issues, including how to make cappuccino foam:

If you know how to make a cappuccino correctly, this does not mean that the first time you will get a good drink that must meet the following requirements (established in many countries of the world):

  • The foam should be dense, without large air bubbles. The size of the bubbles on the foam is uniform, no more than 2-3 mm.
  • The height of the foam must be at least 1/3 of the height of the cup in which the cappuccino is poured.
  • The color of the coffee should be brick beige, while the drink should have a smooth taste and not be bitter.

You already know how to make cappuccino in accordance with the general technology, but for the formation of the perfect taste, we will give the following recommendation: try to use only Arabica, and choose it based on your own tastes. So, Ethiopian coffee varieties have a pronounced nutty hue, Kenyan varieties have a slight sourness, varieties from Central America have a more tart and strong taste.

cappuccino recipes

How to make cappuccino in a special machine according to various recipes? Note that there are no recipes for how to make cappuccino coffee at home – above we described the only cooking option that is a classic technology. Despite this, the preparation of cappuccino in a coffee machine provides for many variations that will have different tastes. So, it is permissible to add various syrups and flavors to cappuccino: cream, caramel, cinnamon, coconut, chocolate, etc.

Note that the specific recipe (and the amount of additions) depends on the person who made the cappuccino. Standard – no more than 10 ml of syrups per 250 ml mug (syrup should not interrupt the taste of coffee), adding cinnamon, grated chocolate or caramel depends on personal preference.

How to Connect a Dishwasher With Your Own Hands: Instructions + Video


To connect the dishwasher, you need a couple of hours if you have everything you need. If you do not know how to connect a dishwasher with your own hands, then detailed instructions, a list of materials and tools are in front of you.

Dishwasher Connection Tools

You will need:

  1. Sewer siphon for drain connection.
  2. Shut-off ball valve that will shut off the water in front of the dishwasher.
  3. ¾” threaded brass tee fitting for water connection.
  4. The filter for rough cleaning of the given water.
  5. PVC pipe or high pressure hose for drain (if there is no siphon included).
  6. Pliers, screwdriver, tape, waterproofing tape FUM.

It is recommended to install a tee not steel or cast iron (they rust quickly), but bronze or brass, a ball valve – metal-plastic or from the same brass or bronze. So you will ensure long-term maintenance-free operation of components.

Dirty water is discharged through the siphon into the sewer, so it is better that it be universal – with several fittings so that it can be connected to the drain holes of other household appliances.

The siphon also traps unpleasant odors from the sewer, so don’t skimp on it – no matter how much the kit costs, it’s important that it works for a long time. Be sure to check the complete set of the siphon so as not to go once again for the missing gasket. The filter for water purification is used the same as in the water meter system.

The procedure for connecting the dishwasher

Dishwashing machines are desktop, built-in (compact) and stationary. Despite the difference in dimensions, the connection of all communications is carried out according to the general principle with minor differences.

How to connect a dishwasher with your own hands: instructions + video

How to connect a dishwasher of any type – stationary, compact or built-in:

  1. Decide on the place where the dishwasher will be installed. Most often this is a working area next to the kitchen sink.
  2. Choose where you will connect the unit to the mains. It is safer if a separate grounded socket is installed, but this applies mainly to powerful devices.
  3. When installing a separate outlet, choose a wire with a cross section of 2.5 mm2 and protection in the form of a 16 A automatic machine. The optimally reliable option is to add a 30 mA RCD (residual current device).
  4. Choose a place to connect to cold water. But you may have a model with hot water connection, so you will need to connect the dishwasher to hot water.
  5. Water is connected with a special high pressure hose with a ¾ inch union nut. Therefore, a shut-off valve with a ¾ inch thread must be screwed into the tee.
  6. The dishwasher drain is connected to the internal sewerage, and it is better to organize the connection separately through a siphon tee (for example, on a kitchen sink drain).

Sewerage supply

Now about how to connect the drain of the dishwasher. Draining is the easiest thing to do. To do this, in each kitchen siphon there is a plug at the bottom that needs to be unscrewed, and screw the siphon onto this thread, and the hose for draining dirty water from the dishwasher will already be connected to it.

How to connect a dishwasher with your own hands: instructions + video

The standard drain hose is 1.5 meters long and should be enough. The siphon has a built-in valve to delay backflow and odors from the sewer, but one more protective measure can be provided – fix the drain hose so that a small half-ring forms below the siphon. It will be a kind of water valve.

How to connect a dishwasher with your own hands: instructions + video

Electrical connection

Not everyone knows how to properly connect the dishwasher to the network. The best option is a separate socket, a separate cable, grounding and separate protection in the form of an RCD and a circuit breaker. But this rule is for powerful units and work for professionals. We want to connect the device ourselves.

How to connect a dishwasher with your own hands: instructions + video

So, we connect the dishwasher ourselves. For a kitchen in which a compact machine, such as a Bosch, will be installed, the option of connecting to the nearest outlet is suitable. Moreover, the entire electrical network of the apartment is protected by not one, but two machines on the landing – one before the meter, and one after it.

For a low-power sink, you can buy a grounded socket plug and make an extension cord with your own hands. Such a grounding connection protects against the load on the home network, and the fact that all wiring wires are concreted into the walls protects them from overheating.

How to bring water

How to connect a bosch dishwasher or other model to water. The supply of cold water requires a tie-in to the water supply system, and this is not necessarily welding work. Just at the place where the water is connected to the cold tap in the kitchen, a tee is mounted, from which the hose is connected to the dishwasher.

How to connect a dishwasher with your own hands: instructions + video

Threaded connections must be sealed with FUM-tape (8-12 turns must be made). For a tight connection, hand effort is enough, without keys. Instead of FUM tape, you can use linen winding, tow or sealant.

Immediately screw the ball valve (valve) onto the tee, and connect a cold water hose to it. If your dishwasher model can be connected to hot water, then the essence of the process does not change – the tee cuts into the hot water supply pipe.

Features of connecting a portable machine

The desktop dishwasher is installed on the countertop, the drain is usually organized in the simplest way – dirty water is drained directly into the sink. Water is supplied to the compact dishwasher in the same way as in stationary models, and the power supply is from a conventional kitchen electrical outlet.

Standard dimensions of the built-in model: width 450-600 mm, unit depth – 550 mm, height – 820 mm. The built-in model is installed in two versions:

  1. In a specially designated place in the kitchen (like a washing machine or mini-refrigerator) under the countertop, taking into account the size of the future unit.
  2. As a separate cabinet, decorated to match the kitchen furniture. For this, special facades for dishwashers are sold, from which you can choose the right decor.

Connect the built-in dishwasher to water, sewerage and voltage in the same way as in the stationary version. And which model your dishwasher will belong to: built-in, portable or stationary – it depends only on the size of the kitchen room and your desire.

Features of connecting a stationary machine

You can find out how to connect the dishwasher yourself from the instructions for the appliance. All technological processes described in the instructions are accompanied by pictures and marked to follow the sequence of operations. Often, not everything is clear from the pictures, so use our advice.

The instruction may not contain the features of the process, how to connect the dishwasher to the sewer, drain and voltage exactly for your conditions, so you need to proceed from the actual dimensions of the unit and the location of communications. You may need to lengthen the drain hose or buy another siphon.

Checking the operation of the dishwasher

Before the first run, check:

  1. Correct connection to the mains. To do this, simply turn on the machine for a few seconds.
  2. Water supply to the unit and drain. Check all hoses for kinks and all threaded connections for leaks.
  3. Check the degree of inclination of the drain hose – ideally, water should not stagnate in the hose, unless you yourself have organized a special additional water plug to protect against unpleasant odors from the sewer.

Now, if all is well, close up all the technological holes in the walls, if any (may be necessary when laying a cable, drain hose or water supply) and put things in order in the kitchen.

How to install a dishwasher yourself (video)

Tips from the user on how to connect the dishwasher (video) – watch and remember. All connections when connecting drain and water require only manual effort – special keys are not needed for this. A minimum of tools and physical effort – and your dishwasher will start working.

Even a housewife can handle connecting a dishwasher, and there is no need to call a specialist. Just follow the sequence of operations, ensure that all materials and tools are available, and you will succeed.

Do-It-Yourself Electric Kettle Repair: Instructions and Video


Household electrical appliances are widely used throughout the world and one of the most common electrical appliances is the electric kettle. Despite the reliability of many models and manufacturers, the service life of electric kettles, like other electrical appliances, is limited, so kettles break sooner or later. And in this case, it is not necessary to take the kettle for repair or purchase a new one – you can repair the electric kettle with your own hands. In this article, we will discuss with our readers how to repair the most common breakdowns in electric kettles.

Do-it-yourself electric kettle repair: instructions and video

The principle of operation of the electric kettle

Before undertaking the repair of any electrical appliance, it is necessary to understand its principle of operation – this rule also applies to the kettle. According to the electrical diagram, it is easy to understand the principle of operation of this electrical appliance. Note that almost all models work according to the principle of operation below.

The principle of operation is as follows: after connecting the plug to the power source, the current passes through the wire to the contacts of the stand, on which all kettles are installed when water is heated.

At the base of the kettle itself there are special contacts that are connected together with the contacts located on the stand – in this way the circuit is closed and the heating element is heated. The electricity then passes through a thermal switch, a device that allows the kettle to turn off when it reaches a certain temperature (usually the boiling point). Also in the standard circuit there is a thermal protection switch, which is always on and is activated only if the user turns on an empty kettle. From the marked switches, electricity passes directly to the electric heating element (also called the heating element).

We have examined the basic principle of operation of an electric kettle – now we will consider separately the operation of some of its circuits and sections.

Wiring diagram of nodes

Carefully consider the stand for the kettle and the place of its contact with the kettle itself. Inside the circular grooves, you can find an electrical contact located on a small spring. It is through this contact that the voltage from the common network is supplied to the electric kettle itself. In the center of the stand there is another contact, which, when in contact with the electric kettle, grounds its case. In fact, this contact does not play any role and is intended only to protect the user in case of violation of the integrity of the insulation.

The power cord that goes to the stand of the electric kettle, inside this stand, branches into three wires, to which the terminals are connected. One wire is for grounding, the other two wires go to concentric copper rings that are used to transfer electricity from the stand to the kettle itself. Further, electricity from copper rings goes directly to the heating element, which is installed at the base of the kettle body. As a result of the closure of the circuit, the water is heated.

overheat protection

Heating elements have high power and get very hot during operation, therefore, a special protection system is additionally installed in each electric kettle. The basis of this system is bimetallic plates, which, when heated to a certain temperature, unbend and open the circuit, thereby preventing further overheating of the kettle.

Automatic shutdown

Almost all modern electric kettles have a special system that provides for turning off the heating element from voltage when the water reaches the boiling point. The principle of operation of such a machine is simple – when heated, steam is supplied through a special channel to a bimetallic plate, which in turn is connected to a switch. When the kettle boils and at an increased intensity of steam pressure, the bimetallic plate heats up and presses on the switch lever, thereby disconnecting the kettle from the mains.

How to repair a kettle?

We examined the main technical features, and now we will consider how to repair an electric kettle. For the convenience of readers, let’s consider specific examples that most often arise with teapots from various companies (Tefal, Philips, etc.):

  1. Kettle stopped heating water. In this case, the malfunction is very easy – there was a break in the section on the heating element itself, or there is no contact of some terminals with the terminals on the heating element. The connection is restored very easily – for this you need to disassemble the kettle and determine the place where the contacts left off. When determining the place of lack of contact, it is necessary to restore the connection of the terminal with the terminals on the heating element using pliers.
  2. The kettle stopped heating water and the indicator does not show that the kettle is on. First of all, we check the voltage in the network. If there is one, the reason is poor contact between the current collectors at the base of the kettle body and the stand. In this case, it is necessary to check how the spring-loaded contacts, which we talked about above, are holding. To do this, the stand is disassembled and a ring with a suitable contact is taken out. It is necessary to check how tightly they are fixed – as a rule, they become loose over time and you simply need to tighten them more tightly in order for electricity to pass through the contacts.
  3. Switch or overheating protection does not work. When considering how to repair an electric kettle, most often in practice they encounter a non-working switch. It may be broken due to the wear of plastic parts, rust on the surface of the bimetal plate. To check the condition, it is necessary to remove the switch from the housing and check the integrity of the parts. After that, it is necessary to inspect the condition of the plates. If there is a strong deposit from steam or rust on them, it must be removed and the operation of the switch should be checked again. These measures are also taken if the overheating protection stops working (in other words, the kettle stops turning off) – it is necessary to check the condition of the bimetallic plates and, if necessary, clean them.
  4. The kettle is leaking. In this case, it is necessary to check the integrity of the kettle body and see where the leak comes from. As a rule, if there is a strong leak, it may not be possible to repair the kettle, especially if its body is made of low-quality plastic or the inner surface has been badly damaged as a result of damage.

In addition to the above information, we recommend watching a video where you can see detailed instructions for repairing electric kettles:

How to Brew Coffee in a Geyser Coffee Maker Correctly? Instruction and Video


Geyser coffee makers are the most popular in Europe. They captured the coffee market in Europe not only for the ease of making coffee, but also for their original design. But, despite the ease of use of this type of coffee machine, the question still remains how to brew coffee in a geyser coffee maker.

Design of a geyser coffee maker

Before you understand how to brew great coffee in a geyser-type coffee maker, it’s best to study its design first. A geyser coffee maker includes three main elements – a water container, a coffee filter and a container for the finished drink. In addition, there is a fuse in the water container, which, if necessary, relieves excess steam pressure.

The process of making coffee itself consists of two stages:

  • The first stage is boiling water. Due to the expansion of water when boiling, it rises through the tube to the ground grains.
  • The second stage – boiling water passes through the filter with ground coffee, boils it and pours into the container for the finished drink.

How to brew coffee in a geyser coffee maker correctly?  Instruction and video

But, despite the seeming simplicity of the process, a certain experience and skill are required to prepare a quality drink. It is important to choose the right temperature and time of production, as well as the grinding of coffee.

The main principles of making coffee in a geyser coffee maker

First of all, cold water should be poured into the water container, not exceeding the filling level mark. Then you should pour freshly ground coffee, preferably medium or coarse grinding, into a special filter and put it in the lower section. It is important to compress the ground grains well in the filter in order to obtain a quality drink. To do this, you can use a protective grid or a special tamper.

How to brew coffee in a geyser coffee maker correctly?  Instruction and video

After all the containers are filled, you can assemble the coffee maker and put it on the stove or connect it to electricity, depending on the model of the coffee maker. It is better to brew coffee over low or medium heat (temperature) so that the coffee boils well and transfers all the beneficial properties to the drink. If you brew coffee at a high temperature, you can simply burn it and get a bitter and disgusting drink as a result.

On average, coffee in a geyser coffee maker is prepared from 5 to 10 minutes. It is worth pouring coffee into cups only after the preparation process is completely completed.

To better understand how to brew coffee in a geyser coffee maker, you can watch this video, where everything is clearly shown:

Helpful Hints

These tips will tell you how to properly brew coffee in a geyser coffee maker.

  • It is better to grind coffee immediately before preparing it, choosing medium or coarse grinding. This will improve the quality and taste of the finished drink.
  • It is better to use pure spring or bottled water to make coffee. The quality of the water also greatly affects the taste of the drink.
  • It is advisable to wash the coffee maker after all preparations of the drink so that the remaining coffee oils or grounds do not spoil the taste of the new drink. Do not use detergents or hard washcloths. Simply rinse well with warm water.
  • The denser the coffee is pressed and the stronger the coffee maker is assembled, the better and tastier the finished drink will be.
  • Ready coffee drink is best poured into warm mugs. This will make your coffee taste even better.
  • Do not open the coffee maker until the brewing process is complete. You can get burned.
  • If the drink is weak and liquid, then it is worth reducing the grinding of grains.
  • There should be no sediment left in the coffee drink. If it appears, then you need to increase the grinding.
  • If the coffee maker is new, then the first couple of cups of coffee should be poured into the sink.

  3. A household sponge is used to wash the microwave chamber.
  4. Dry the chamber by carefully wiping the chamber walls with a clean and dry cloth.
  5. Rinse the spinning disc and dry it separately.

If the burnt smell has not been eliminated after such a procedure, then it is necessary to treat the inner walls of the furnace with improvised means that eliminate the unpleasant odor.

In order to remove the smell of burning, treatment with a coffee solution is recommended. The pleasant aroma of coffee is most harmonious in eliminating burnt odors. An ideal option for the procedure is prepared natural coffee. Instant coffee is also suitable, but the effect will be much lower.

The smell of fish and other foods in the microwave. How to get rid of an unpleasant smell?

Unfortunately, fish products have one feature – after cooking, a fish spirit remains, which over time acquires an unpleasant shade. Acid solutions will help save the microwave from the smells of fish and seafood: acetic or citric acid. Removing an unpleasant odor from the chamber with the help of these products is not difficult, but effective.

Let’s figure it out how to get rid of the smell in the microwave with acetic acid:

  1. We compose a solution of acetic acid in the following proportion: dissolve one tablespoon of 70% vinegar in 250 milliliters of water.
  2. Thoroughly wash the inner walls of the oven chamber with the prepared solution.
  3. Let it process for 10 minutes. During this period, the solution breaks down food enzymes and kills harmful bacteria that cause bad odors and rancidity.
  4. After this procedure, wash the oven walls with cold water and dry with a clean, dry piece of cloth.

How to get rid of the smell in the microwave with citric acid.

Citric acid for the odor elimination procedure can be used in two different ways.

One of the options is not much different from the odor removal procedure, as was given in the example with acetic acid:

  1. A solution is prepared from citric acid powder and water.
  2. We wash the inner surface of the chamber with the prepared solution.
  3. We leave for 10 minutes.
  4. Rinse the chamber with cool water and dry with a cloth.

The second option uses fresh lemon juice for an acidic solution. This option is shown in the video.

The advantage of this method is that it does not just solve the question of “how to clean the microwave”, but at the same time the chamber is filled with the aroma of fresh lemon, effectively absorbing the smells of seafood.

How to remove the unpleasant smell of burning, fish and other products from the microwave?

How to remove the smell in the microwave with fresh lemon:

  1. 200 milliliters of water is poured into a deep cup.
  2. The juice of one or two lemons is squeezed into the poured water. By the way, squeezed lemon can also be put into water, then essential oils will participate in the cleansing process, and the lemon flavor will be more pronounced and pleasant.
  3. A cup of dissolved lemon juice is placed in the oven chamber. Heating is set to maximum, and the duration mode is one to two minutes.
  4. Rinse the walls of the chamber with cold water, and then dry with a dry and clean cloth.

In addition to the smells of fish and burnt, the microwave chamber can be filled with other, albeit not so intense, but also unpleasant odors. Below are quick ways to eliminate such odors.

Useful tips on how to remove the smell in the microwave

  • If a smells of mustiness from the furnace chamber, then an ordinary toothpaste will become an unpretentious means for removing the smell. The paste for the procedure has all the necessary components: “soft” abrasive substances and a harmless fragrance. Lightly moisten the chamber walls with a rag, and then, using paste and an unnecessary toothbrush, we clean hard-to-reach places in the chamber: seams, corners, etc.

Then we wash the chamber and dry it with a clean cloth.

  • Smells sour how to remove odor from microwave oven An alkaline solution of soda will help eliminate “sour” odors. Thoroughly rinse the inner walls of the furnace with a concentrated solution, and then wash off the solution with warm, clean water. The procedure is completed by drying with a clean cloth.
  • The aromas of fatty dishes remain, how to remove smell from microwave Common detergents can easily cope with such problems. The alkaline composition of the products effectively eliminates traces and odors of fats. After washing the chamber, wipe the walls dry.

The question “how to remove the smell from the microwave” will occur less frequently if preventive measures are taken.

How to prevent unwanted odors. Recommendations and advice

  • The first and simplest rule: Before reheating or cooking, cover the dish with a lid.
  • After cooking or reheating food, do not rush to slam the oven door, let the chamber ventilate for several minutes.
  • Sew a linen bag the size of a tobacco pouch. Fill this pouch with charcoal, rice or salt. If such a bag is left in the microwave overnight, then coal, rice or salt will have time to absorb residual odors.
  • At least once a month, the microwave oven needs a thorough cleaning and washing. To do this, one of the methods described above will do. Do not forget at the same time to wash the pouch to eliminate odors, and fill its contents with fresh salt or coal.

Taking preventative care of your microwave oven and learning how to remove a wide variety of odors will help you extend the life of your microwave oven.

Do-It-Yourself Thermopot Repair: Instructions and an Overview of Popular Faults


Thermopot is an invention of modern civilization. This is a symbiosis of an electric kettle and a thermos, working on the principle of a samovar. Like a kettle, a thermo pot boils water, and like a thermos, it keeps it hot for a long time. But even this invention sometimes has to be repaired. To start repairing a thermopot with your own hands, you need to study its internal structure and principle of operation, therefore, a technical instruction is attached to the thermopot.

How is a thermopot

All such devices are arranged in the same way, and may differ in auxiliary options. The working units of the thermopot are placed in the case, and it must be removed to repair the device. Water is poured into a stainless steel tank with two heating elements at the bottom. One heating element heats water up to 100aboutC, the second keeps it hot. All electrical parts are equipped with appropriate electrical protection.

Do-it-yourself thermopot repair: instructions and an overview of popular faults

An engine is attached to the side of the case, which supplies water from the tank. Also, the device is equipped with electronics, which acts as a time relay for re-boiling water and lowering the mains voltage for the pump and time relay.

Also, an automatic control board is built into the thermopot for reheating, indicating the status of the device and water supply. The thermal switch, which is duplicated by a thermal fuse, is mounted on the side wall of the tank and on the bottom of the housing. Such protection does not allow the thermopot to overheat or burn out.

Do-it-yourself thermopot repair: instructions and an overview of popular faults

If you know how the thermopot works and where everything is located, it will be easier for you to identify the problem and do the repair of the thermopot yourself. It does not hurt to get acquainted with the electrical circuit of the device – then you can also repair some nodes yourself. For example, a power supply circuit for a Vitek thermopot can be purchased for about 1000-1200 rubles, and it consists of the following parts and assemblies:

  1. Pulse transformer.
  2. Diode bridge.
  3. Electrical circuit elements: capacitors, resistances, diodes, transistors, etc.

So, the Panasonic NC-EH30PWTW thermal pot costs about 5000-6000 rubles, and the replacement of electronics during repairs is more than 2000 rubles. The pump also costs about 2000 rubles, so it is cheaper and easier to buy a new device than to repair an old device. However, if you still decide to repair the thermal pot yourself, then start with the power cord.

Disassembly of the thermopot

Any deviation from the normal operation of the device can be called a breakdown that requires repair.

To remove the upper case, locate and unscrew the screws on the bottom of the instrument. Next, make a visual inspection of all nodes for damage – mechanical and thermal, which can most often be restored with a soldering iron.

The next step is to check the thermal switch in the bottom of the housing using a conventional household tester. A good switch does not have infinite resistance. Simply replace a non-working unit with a new one, and the easiest way to order it is via the Internet.

It is possible to disconnect the pump only after disconnecting the inlet pipe and unscrewing the fixing bolts. Check it for blockages – often it is enough to clean the impeller and magnet to give the pump a second life.

Also, a standard thermopot, for example, Polaris or Boch, has not one, but several thermal switches, of which one is needed to control the temperature of the water, and the second protects the device from turning on if it is empty. The thermal switch is located so that the walls of the tank and the flange are in close contact. A special thermally conductive grease is used for the contact.

How to fix minor damage

Do not try to work with an unsuitable soldering iron by removing and replacing the microchip in the same Ideal ID-40TPS model or any other model that requires the use of a hot air gun.

Do-it-yourself thermopot repair: instructions and an overview of popular faults

The most common malfunctions can often be identified and corrected on their own. Here is some of them:

  1. The indicators do not light up, the device does not work and does not show signs of life. To begin with, you should check the wiring and electrical connections, the fuse and the thermostat – these parts and assemblies fail more often than others.
  2. Only the reheat mode works – the main boil does not work. Most likely, the bottom thermal switch is faulty or the main heating element burned out.
  3. The main boil mode works, reheating does not. Check the elements of the main board.
  4. The water supply is not working. A breakdown can be caused by a malfunction of the pump power circuit or a breakdown of the pump itself. The spiral (heater) of additional heating often burns out, through which voltage is applied to the pump motor. If the heating elements fail, it is economically unprofitable to repair the thermal pot – it is cheaper to buy a new one, for example, scarlett SL-1509.

After the repair is completed, check the electrical safety of the device – measure the resistance with the same tester (it must be infinite) between the tank and the contacts of the electrical plug, between the body and the contacts of the plug.

Repair of other thermopot elements

  1. If your thermopot has a burned out spiral (heater), then it will not be possible to repair it – you will have to buy a new device.
  2. Electrical cord. Inside the case there is a block that fixes the cord. It is necessary to release the cable and check it for a short circuit with a tester.
  3. Microchip. It happens to be nourishing and managing. A visual inspection will help identify burnt parts that can be replaced with a low-power soldering iron.
  4. Capacitors. The defective part looks swollen and is immediately visible.
  5. Diodes rarely fail, and their performance can only be checked with a dial tester.
  6. Getinax board tracks. Microcracks can be tinned with a layer of tin solder.

Video instructions for repairing a thermopot

The video shows the internal structure of the thermo pot and one of the ways to repair it, namely, replacing the pump. Step-by-step video instruction with detailed explanations during the video. This breakdown is not the most common, but it is one of the difficult problems that you can solve on your own. On the video – repair of the Panasonic thermopot pump.
