Guidelines to Choose the Best 220 Volt Hair Dryer

Big words like ionic, ceramic, infrared and more have made choosing a hair dryer more confusing than ever. So how do you choose the best 220 volt hair dryer for your needs? Here are a few guidelines to keep in mind:

•    Hair Type

First, identify your hair type because not all dryers are made to suit all hair types. Choosing the wrong one could fry your hair instead of making it beautiful.

•    Wattage

A higher wattage means more wind power and less styling time, which is good if you have thick hair that takes ages to style. This also saves your hair from being over-exposed to heat, which results to dryness and damage.

•    Weight
Fancy hair dryers tend to be heavy because of the built-in, powerful motors. This may be fine for those who can dry their hair in a snap, but for those with thick hair that takes forever to manage, it can be an intense arm workout.

•    Material

Water ions are positively charged, which means in order to get a faster, more efficient blowout, you will need a 220 volt hair dryer that shoots negative ions. Ionic and tourmaline dryers both fire off negative ions for a sleeker finish. They also prevent frizz. Ceramic, infrared, and porcelain-built or coated dryers, on the other hand, distribute heat evenly, gently, consistently. They are less harsh than other materials. Titanium also has the characteristics of ceramic and porcelain dryers, but tends to get very hot (which is not recommended for brittle or weak hair).

•    Price

Beauty and hair experts consistently say that you cannot get the outstanding result that an expensive dryer gives if you use a cheap dryer. Think of it as an investment and spend a bit more for something that lasts longer.

If purchasing a 220 volt hair dryer online (which is the easiest choice nowadays), make sure you buy from a trusted, verified and reliable shop that specializes in 220 volt branded appliances and sells them for a cheaper price. Make sure the shop is SSL Encryption Protected, which safeguards your credit card and personal information from hackers for a hassle-free shopping experience.

Buy a 220 Volt Rice Cooker and Get Perfect Rice Everytime

Cooking rice perfectly is not an easy task, which is why if you visit any home in any country in Asia, you will most likely find a rice cooker. A 220 volt rice cooker makes cooking perfectly fluffy rice a breeze with just a press of a button. Here are some of the key features you need to look for when buying a rice cooker:

•    Pre-set timer

Most rice cookers have a one press feature where you just put the cleansed (optionally seasoned) uncooked rice grains and press a button. The rice cooker will finish cooking the rice on its own. It automatically lets you know once the rice is ready. Some rice cookers have multiple features that allow you to set your own time. This could come in handy if you need to cook different types of rice, since some varieties require different cooking times and water levels.

•    Functions

Many high-tech rice cookers have appeared in the market-and they can cook more meals apart from just rice. Some can be used as a slow-cooker, steamer or hot pot for stews and soups. But if you just need a rice cooker solely for rice, then a one-step rice cooker is the most practical option.

•    Housing

Make sure the rice cooker is made with high-quality materials such as stainless steel, which is easy to clean. Also, some of the best rice cookers have heat-insulated covers to prevent burns if you accidentally touch the cover while cooking. The best rice cookers can also hold up to 10 cups of rice, which is perfect for the family.

Whether you eat rice daily or use it to make sushi or burrito, a 220 volt rice cooker is a handy appliance to have in the kitchen. From risotto, to rice, soup and even omelets, rice cookers let you whip up all sorts of delicious meals.

Features and Benefits of a Multisystem VCR

From Nintendo’s Family Computer to film cameras to multisystem VCRs, vintage appliances are making a huge comeback nowadays. Some people even argue that they never really left. Whatever you believe, one thing is for sure—with a multisystem VCR, you can dust off your old tapes, watch them all over again, and feel the nostalgia coming like a warm blanket in a chilly morning. If you don’t know whether to buy a brand new Blu-ray/DVD player or a multisystem VCR, then go for the VCR so you can enjoy these features and benefits:

•    Endless Options

Without a doubt, VCRs have been in existence longer than DVDs—which makes for more options. While most of today’s movies and shows are recorded and sold on DVD or CD, the finest classic films are on tape. Not only that—your old family videos and tapes can also be played in a VCR.

•    Great Video Playback

Here’s a little known fact: When DVDs were released in the market, manufacturers made them seem superior to VHS tapes when in fact, VHS tapes have better quality in terms of both picture and sound. In a study done in Brown University, a number of students were both shown the same movies in both DVD and VHS format and were not told which is which. While most students said that there was no difference between the two, 19% of the class thought that the VHS format had better quality.

•    Hi-Fi Sound System

Another huge myth is that DVDs provide better sound quality, but VCR players and VHS tapes make use of the original Dolby Surround Sound rather than the latest Dolby Digital 5.1 (which is compressed digitally and not analog). Analog recording has a more authentic sound than that of an mp3, which is digitally processed.

•    Inputs

Multisystem VCRs have in and out audio and video connections which make it possible for you to record your favorite shows while watching something else. You can also plug in gaming consoles.
