Probably! I'd check eBay or Amazon. I know refillable capsules are available for Keith, not sure for Nespresso.

The benefit of travel bowls is that they can be folded or made into smaller s, which can be great for anytime that you take your dog to the park or on vacation. Also, they are not expensive and you can buy them for $5-$10.

You should pick the elevated dog bowl for cleaner feeding area. You clean the surface of the feeder table rather than the floor. In addition, the elevated dog bowl can minimize the behavior of dogs that like to splash in their water bowls.

Don't you love the sound of the Sapper Kettle?

Alessi refers to these as the E & B Pitch Pipes. Over time, impurities in the tap water corrode the internal reed whistle, and always the low pitched one first. Here's a tip: Once replaced, avoid overfilling the kettle to the top, causing boiling and water to spill though the pipes. The water might contain impurities, but the steam doesn't. This should help keep the pipes in working order for many years. We've had our Sapper kettle for 30 years.

I have found the best way to remove the old whistles is with the thick end of a Chop Stick. The soft wood worn't scratch the metal. Insert chopstick from the bottom and tap to drive them up and out from the top.

I get my replacement Pitch Pipes at the San Francisco Alessi store: Part 12701. Cost: approximately $16. (415) 434-0403

Hope this helps.

A practical way to accomplish this is to take your Alessi watch to a jeweler for a demonstration of how to open it correctly. You then may be able to persuade the jeweler to replace the battery for a reasonable sum.

Buy a new kettle as the labour of a repair will be more than its worth.

Most cat bowls are made from one of three materials - plastic, ceramic/glass, or stainless steel. I recommend a ceramic/glass bowl. Many plastic bowls harbor bacteria and stainless steel bowls (although they are best for keeping water cool) are not heavy enough and will be easily tipped over by your cat.

The switch is most likely defective and has to be changed. It is also possible that the heating element is pulling too much current and also has to be changed.

An appliance service tech would have the tools to test the kettle and determine the exact fault.
