Tips for Choosing the Best Air Purifier

There are all sorts of little particulates that are in the air we breathe everyday. For folks with asthma and allergies, having an air purifier inside their home or office space is one way to help make their everyday life a bit better. However, with so many purifiers on the market, choosing the right one can be a challenge. Here are a few tips to choosing the right air purifier for your space. 

 

HEPA- You may be familiar with seeing this acronym on lots of air purifiers and it is an important one. These filters catch 99.97% of particulates  that are as small as 0.3 microns. For comparison, the smallest object that a human will be able to see is about 70 microns. There are a lot of false advertisements when it comes to filers so be wary if it says a “HEPA Type” filter. 

 

Noise Level- Depending on where you are putting your filter, the noise level may be of some concern. While they have certainly gotten more quiet over the years, many air purifiers make a gentle humming sound that almost sounds like a white noise machine. Be aware of the level of noise, especially if you are looking at putting it in a shared office. 

 

Understand the CADR- The CADR or Clean Air Delivery Rate, will help you to understand the effectiveness of an air purifier in different size spaces. For example a CADR of 200 for dust means that the air purifier can lower the dust concentration at the equivalent of adding 200 cubic feet of fresh air per minute. 

 

Energy Cost- For an air purifier to stay effective, it needs to run 24/7 to be constantly drawing pollutants out of the air. This may have an impact on your electricity bill so be mindful of the additional cost. Some filters also have an eco conscience mode that automatically changes to standby mode if it does not detect any pollen, dust, or other contaminate in the air. 

We carry a variety of air purifiers including the Holmes desktop air purifier as well as a tabletop water cooler for your office.

Homemade Tortillas? Yes Please!

Everyone loves homemade food and tortillas are no different. Soft, hard, rolled, fried, the list goes on and on. The perfect vessel for a variety of fillings and toppings, homemade tortillas are a way to elevate your Taco Tuesday game and will quickly become a staple in your home. 

 

Traditional tortillas are made using dried corn that has been soaked overnight that is then processed by hand, making the rounds that are then cooked on a hot, flat surface. Now by  visiting your local Latinx marketplace you can stock up on all the materials you will need to make tortillas for your family. Masa Harina is the first ingredient you could look for when in the store. 

 

Translated to simply ‘corn flour’ this bag will make plenty of tortillas and is the only ingredient you are unlikely to have at home. Corn tortillas are naturally gluten free and are more flavorful than their flour counterparts. This makes them perfect for the whole family. After mixing the flour with the appropriate ratio of hot water and a pinch of salt, roll the balls into flats and flatten them into even rounds. Then put them into your tortilla maker to cook them to the ideal stage for your recipe. Fresh tortillas make for an easy quesadilla at lunchtime or tacos at dinner. Leftover tortillas? No problem! 

 

Using your air fryer countertop oven you can cut your tortilla into triangle shapes and air fry them to crispy perfection. Top them with any leftover taco toppings or nacho cheese to have another fantastic meal. Cooking homemade food is the ideal way to feed your family. Fresh ingredients can be made into meals that are not only healthy but that your family will love. If you are low on time, consider a digital toaster oven. Just set the timer and finish whatever you have to get done with the confidence that your meal will be done to perfection. 

 

Advantages of a Desktop

The demands for portable technology have only increased in the last decade. iPads, laptops, tablets, and cell phones have all satisfied the need for technology that can go anywhere. Although this technology is great for on the go, there are still many advantages for having a desktop computer. With a massive increase in people who are working from home and the large numbers of them that are anticipated to continue to work from home after the pandemic, having a desktop just makes sense. 

It all starts with the price of the item itself. Desktops have many accessory components that can be added, but for the basic set up, they can start at a fraction of the price of a laptop. At a fraction of the price of their portable siblings, you are also getting a more powerful processor. This processor improves both the function and performance of the computer. In addition to more power, they also have more storage space and can connect to a variety of devices through their data ports. 

A desktop does take more time to set up. The cords need to be organized and everything needs to be plugged in the right way. However this has significant benefits to working from home because it establishes a workplace. For an added level of security you can plug in your wifi router into your computer, strengthening the connection and making it less likely that your computer will lose power. 

When you actually sit down at the desktop, efficiency starts with what is right in front of you. Keyboards on a laptop are full sized and often angled to make typing easier and put less strain on your wrists and hands. The mouse also provides support instead of having to use the touch-pad on a laptop. The screen size of a desktop is also significantly larger than the average laptop. Having everything bigger makes it easier on your eyes and helps to reduce eye strain. 

Using a desktop has many advantages as we hope you see here. Our electronics inventory includes the best small tablets to fit your needs for portable technology while our desktop selection has you covered at home. In the kitchen, get yourself a digital toaster oven to make mornings even easier. 

A Kitchen Staple: The Food Processor

Food processors are a modern kitchen staple. The sharp blades and varying sizes means that there is one out there that can fit in your kitchen. Their versatility is often underestimated so today we are going to tell you 5 things you can do with your food processor. 

  1. Homemade pasta- This seemingly daunting task is made easy using your food processor. The dough comes together, neatly and without a mess in the container and is then easily transferable to the counter to be rolled out. The holes on the top of your food processor were meant to be used for a slow drip such as that you would use with olive oil when making pasta. 
  2. Sauce- It goes without saying that homemade pasta is nothing without a wonderful sauce to accompany it. Easy blending of different sized ingredients means that your sauce can come together easily. For other meals, salsas, dips and spreads can be whipped up with ease. 
  3. DIY Nut butter- Buying cashew and almond butter at the store can get expensive. Create your own at home and watch the magic happen. Spreadable on toast and usable in all sorts of ways, homemade nut butter becomes a topic of conversation on your weekly video dinner calls with friends. This goes without mentioning the nuts you can have on hand for a snack too! 
  4. Ice Cream- The world just became a better place! Make your favorite sweet treat at home with all the toppings you want. By freezing your base, it can be quickly whipped up in your processor leaving you with a fluffy base to add your mix ins. Prefer sorbet? No problem! Freezing your favorite fruit and then blending it makes another easy dessert for a hot day. 
  5. Chopping Vegetables- While it may seem basic, vegetables are easy to break down to the size you need with your food processor. The “pulse” button gives you the control you want to get the right size cut. You will never have to worry about crying with onions again and cutting carrots becomes a breeze. 

Becoming the kitchen wizard you have always wanted to be is easier than ever now that you have these ideas to fuel your next cooking session using your android tablet as your recipe holder. Find the best small food processor and get cooking!
