  • 😂 That's my new favourite phrase, "its 5 o'clock somewhere "

  • This world is build to work against left handers

  • "Vodker"

  • The muddler looks like a police baton

  • I feel like the badass muddler should be shaped more like a billy club, so it’s tapered a bit, and easier to keep a hold on. It’s like a mortar and pestle.

  • I’d make the shaker a “screw fit” design so it would lock in and release easily.

  • The soda water thing made me think why do I have a soda stream it is way more effective

  • As someone who paralysed his left arm, which never fully recovered, I really appreciate the slippery hand test!

  • vodker

  • I love how every time something just messes up he goes "wOah!" XD

  • Remember “vibes” or a “vibe” aren’t real so don’t talked about or use it as if they are PRAISE JESUS AMEN 🙏

  • Stirred martinis are objectively better

  • idk why but i absolutely love Dan

  • If you use a Boston style or two cup shaker and they get stuck together like that it's actually quite common because the cups get cold and become wedged together by the time you are done shaking because they warm up slightly. It's not uncommon to have to smack the small inner cup to get it loose so actually what he experienced is quite normal.

  • Good to see.this guy has come a long way from owning Gary's Mattress

  • I'm watching the video and I look over next to me, my cat is staring at the wall and now he's staring at my hand.

  • It went from 49 to 40 years, thats why hes drinking so much martinis lol

  • You're supposed to muddle before adding liquid

  • Nothing beats wood when it comes to handles.

  • he just got all handsome in, literally, a snap

  • The fact that the lid on that manual ice crusher gets cemented on because you have to hold it down so hard when turning is such a massive design flaw .. gets stuck every time lol...

  • As someone who used an original ice crusher made of metal, the retro version looks like trash

  • Instead of the Ice Crusher, here in Mexico we have the Raspador de Hielo, (I don't know how to translate it) and is 100 time more effective

  • 0:44 'vodker'

  • Boy, I like saying boy. WHOAH!

  • Martinis are made with gin, unless you are a sissy.

  • I think that the suit is a little bit big for you bud

  • 5:40 I can do it with my right hand good idk about my left hand hahahaahahahahah the guys will understand

  • The badass muddler has one other use when slippery...

  • I am giving this guy 0.5/5 for making drinks

  • I love this guy hahaha

  • I don't think we can trust your judgement after the third mojito

  • gotta love when "just a stick" and "just two cups" are demolishing overengineered appliances.

  • Does anyone get anxious when he use oil on his hand while wearing an long sleeve?

  • My cousin is a bartender and he has mixing classes with spikes in the inside bottom so he can crush ice with them, neve rseen him use a ice crusher

  • The siphon is normally used for cocktails or cocktail ingredients and it's main purpose it to look sexy on the back bar.

  • Are we going to just ignore Mr.Dan van the Gadget tester perfect James bond villain impression ?

  • I didn't think of smashing ice in a folded towel. I wonder if it works for candy canes too!

  • Someone call this man and uber

  • For a person who is not allowed to consume alcoholic beverages due to prescribed meds, I find these things interesting 😂 I hope someday I got to know and experience how people enjoy those drinks 🤣

  • You could add a thin rubber ring to the bottom of the muddler to protect your glasses

  • HES BACK

  • He is drinking as a job

  • The left hand oil test is the fakest thing ive ever seen i think he does this to act like he knows what he is doing

  • Stirred is always better than shaken... also 2 to1 and with vodka.... my man likes a sweet wet martini.... man that sounds dodgy.

  • “Vod-cur” I love regional American accents.

  • Vodker

  • The muggler is fun for women as well!

  • I love old people who aren't boomers

  • Det. Briscoe: "Do we have a cause of death on the bartender?" Dr. Rodgers: "Blunt force trauma, probably muddled to death."

  • NOlongr How to drink uses the the first gadget in every video

  • This video is highly underrated

  • i could see the muggler as a dildo

  • i must i these videos randomly came up on recommended not disappointed

  • no you don't want your martini shaken, you want to stir it so its less diluted. good golly james bond ruined martinis forever

  • Pretty sure the spring keeps the ice from blocking the holes on the strainer but idk for sure

  • 12:42 don’t know why that was so hilarious to me but I LOLED.

  • I feel like Dan requested to make a martini to live out his Bond fantasy

  • The isi seltzer is a great product. Tips for better carbonation. Keep everything as cold as possible from the water to the bottle itself. Shake vigorously for 10-20 seconds after charging to help dissolve the CO2 Let it sit for a few minutes before using. Also, it’s designed so that you can adjust how much carbonation by using additional charges. I like to use 2. My favourite thing to do is carbonate the whole cocktail. Juice, alcohol, etc...

  • Interesting

  • For the crusher, a shake would make the ice pourable. Edit: also. That looks like the same charger Baristas use to make whipped cream. Yeah. We just pump a crap ton of vanilla in a cup and heavy cream, stir, cap, shake, add charger similarly, and bam. Whipped cream.

  • I love this man

  • “Vodker”

  • Video is kind of awkward with gaps in audio, just off putting in comparison to other videos with similar content

  • like for next episode of get dan drunk with more alcoholic gadgets

  • 15:43 I'd reccomend a sodastream machine. So much easier.

  • I’m not convinced this man has ever handled any of these items before

  • Plot twist: He didn’t finished it. He got heavily drunk.

  • As a bartender I have the need to tell you I'm a bartender

  • I absolutely love this guy

  • All the real bartenders in the comments blowing up lol

  • “Vodker”

  • 0:44 vodker

  • Teu Boston shaker was not stucked, he was using it in a wrong way... you have to tap it at a proper place to open it

  • I would love to see a coffee gadget video

  • I love that he liked the muddler so much, he used it to one-up the next device.

    • Its so badass that even mugglers will fear it

    • So badass it can do another device's job better than it was designed to.

  • Metal compresses when it’s cold, so I don’t understand why they would make the top of the ice crusher out of metal.

    • Cos it's more resilient to damage than anything else

  • I literally thought the ice crusher was something else with red liquid inside of it.

    • Just realize it says ice crusher in thumbnail. I still thought there was some sort of red alcohol in it.

  • Nice

  • Your are doing wrong with the ISI soda siphon, you actually need shake the siphon with the gas plugged, to add better the bubbles with the water. Also is better to, get the more cold water possible to keep easy and better the bubbles

  • This dude is a sweetheart

  • please we need more videos mr dan

  • 14:34 omg no wonder its so familiar, its Squidward's soda dispenser from the Naughty Nautical Neighbors episode. As a kid, I always wondered how THAT is considered soda.

    • I still wonder that to this day, I hate sparkling water lol

    • Lol

  • They should've let Jeff Solomon try the gadgets along with him.

  • As a lefty, I appreciate the left-handed tests!

  • Just use sodastream xdxdxdxd

  • Bruh i think he's drunk after 2 gadgets lmao

  • You're muddling the mint way too much.

  • So I'm not sure if anyone has mentioned this...he has beautiful hands.

  • So classic design trumps being hard to use with oiled non-dominant hand? Gotcha! ;)

  • Would you trust this guy around your kids

  • This guy reminds me of Henry Winkler from Happy Days.

  • I can watch him all day. 🤣

  • ily Dan!! 😁😁😁

  • Smack the edge of the Boston Shaker to break the seal

  • Need more of these please.

  • WE DID IT! 40 YEARRRSS

  • Do one on coffee makers

  • 5:08 So...um...I saw things due to that I have watched 32 videos on dark humor...hope y’all get it...

  • One major take away from this video, the badass muddler is really BADASS

    • I was waiting for him to smash a glass with it lol
