There is the undercover power of an ice maker machine to make your mother stay young. Making fresh sorbet or ice cream and cold drinks is always favorable for them because it makes others happy. Whether at a family party or between friends, meeting loved ones has a big impact on their lives, such as reminiscing the younger days, so they feel like they are not old yet. You can also give this to your beloved spouse, in case you are about to have an outdoor party or a small beverage business. It is useful for not only drinking but also to cool down the injury from the activities.
Ikich Ice Maker is the portable one of a kind. Not only that, this is quick at making ice. The shape is the bullet ones, perfect for cold drinks. There are 2 sizes; small and large. Life will be easier from back then when you make ice from the refrigerator, the blocks are only limited and take a long time to make one. With this machine, all you need is to turn on the device, then fill the water in the reservoir, choose the size, then voila, your ice is ready in 6 minutes and equals 26 lbs of ice in 24 hours.
The quality of the ice is exquisite because the columns are made of pure copper. You can see the ice from the window. Worry no more about the lack of water supply because there is the LED indicator on the front, as well as when to refill the water in the 2-liter water reservoir. It won’t melt easily because there’s the exhaust fan, at the same time the machine is still quiet, so you can continue your chatter with her old friends. In the box, there is a free ice scoop, basket, and the user’s manual. It is very simple, right? You shouldn’t miss the compact and portable ice maker; not only for the countertop but also a minibar, coffee shop, RV, literally anywhere.
After your mom receives the device, you can show you these steps on how to set up the ice maker:
You can use any temperature of the water. This is unlike a cooler box, so it is better to keep in a cool surrounding. If you don’t want to use it for a long period of time, you can drain the water by plugging the clogged drain. It is also the way to clean the reservoir.
Delicious foods had gone through several preparations, even the simplest one like making soup inside your steamer. Some people find this activity draining since you have to chop from one ingredient to another. Your mom knows the struggle. But, with a food processor, it is safer now. To assemble the machine, the mixing bowl, and the lid, you can do it in a short time too. Then, after you've finished, you can store them back in the cabinet. Say goodbye to the chopping board and knife, until the next time you need it. You help your mom to keep up her family recipe.
The food processor from Hamilton Beach has an 8-cup capacity, which is more than enough for a single-serving or family portion. There are 2 speeds and 1 pulse your mother can turn over. Therefore, not only can you shred veggies and chop onion, but also mincemeat. Try out making different cuisines from around the world, while it is possible to do with this one device. Also, help out your mother to make homemade peanut butter for your sister who is allergic to the store bought.
All possibilities are from the blade that is made of stainless steel and it is reversible. See, there is another safety feature. The large feed chute is to shred all pieces of the cheese and that’s quick and neater rather than with the manual shredder. Parts can be in the dishwasher, thus easy to clean; blades, bowl, and lid and are made from food-grade material. Underneath the stand, there are anti-skid suction feet to secure the food processor. You can store this everywhere, so save some space on the countertop. Its weight is the one you have to relieve.
Let’s make the flakiest pie crust, shall we? That’s true that it is actually unbelievable to make pie dough with a food processor, though some have proven the job. All you need to have is:
Then, pour them together in the bowl, and switch the processor to on. You can add the ingredients at any time from the chute. Shred, slice, and mix every time. You now can leave the cooking safely to mom. Coming home, you can still see her big smile after preparing the feast and also wait for your visit.
We all still aware of the world-scale outbreak is not finish yet. Up until today, we still spend Mother’s Day in a distance. What we can do for now is wishing all the best for your mother and all mothers, including your wife and her mom’s condition, whether or not you near her. You can celebrate it, still, unless you do it virtually or from afar, such as just from outside the door. Actually, you can create a new ‘tradition’ to spend the day expressing your gratitude towards your mom, namely cooking her favorite food, give a gift, and other forms of love language you know. The list you’ve seen above are some of the examples and is still useful in the quarantine.
You should at least try some ideas below, or might as well suit your likings. She will impress your attempt to make her feel special on Mother’s Day of 2021. Therefore, here are some inspo:
It has been a common fact that sending out gifts to people you care about the most, in this sense is your mother or the mother of your child, has a good impact in mental both from the receiver and the giver. You probably get used to give it directly. As today we still face the pandemic, you must send the gift as safely as possible to at least stop the spread of the virus. In any case, you can make a simple surprise at home if you still live with her.
Once the package has arrived at your mom’s house, have a video call with her. You can choose the videoconference application that is accessible to her. After that, ask her about how she feels at the moment. You might as well show her how to use the appliances, as in doing the cooking demo. On another day, play games with her. Again, don’t forget to remind her to stay at the distance and better to stay at home. If your wife is on a business trip, send her take care and you better prepare for the little party of surprise.
This is to make sure that she is alright whenever you are not around. You don’t have to do it every minute, though. But in this critical period of time, you have to be able to be ‘near’ her even when you are at the farthest distance, so she also knows your condition, thus makes her no worry. The best closing in the conversation remains the same from last year; to clean the house, always wear a mask, and eat high-quality foods to prevent the virus in the very best way.
There's always a way to show your loving mom, wife or mother-in law even in this unexpected pandemic. Give them a little surprise on the upcoming Mother's Day and let all the love be still around.
