You should also have shown and explained the difference between dry and wet measure cups. You can use dry measure cups for liquid but not the inverse

betacup Coffee Cup Challenge questions.

I have just one question: I understand that we must base our project on paper coffee cups, but are we allowed to use Styrofoam cups as long as they are not the main component? As in, if we still have more paper than Styrofoam, is it alright?

Cup warmer plate/tray to install in cupboard

My house is rather cold in the winter, and when I make coffee in the morning I have to manually heat my espresso cups by filling them with warm water. A lot of automatic espresso machines have cup warmer trays. I don't want to buy a new coffee machine. I am thinking it would be possible to place some kind of warming mat under my cups in the cupboard, somewhat similar to heated mattresses / heating blankets. I haven't found any existing products that fit the description. Any input on this? :)

Giant Plastic Cup

Hey all, I couldn't find anyone who sells these on the Internet so I'd like to find the best way to make them. The cups would be about 2ft tall, and would look just like a plastic cup used at beer parties. I'm throwing my buddy his bachelor party and this would be hilarious! I was thinking maybe carving half the cup out of a Styrofoam block then, laying fiberglass in it. Then gluing the two pieces together. I'm not sure about drinking out of a fiberglass cup though. Thoughts on building this, or a link where I could buy something like this would be greatly appreciated. Cheers!

why am I not in the contest?

I don't understand why my instructable, the sphere lamp, isn't in the coffeecup contest anymore. Is it because of the use of plastic cups? Because as I mentioned it was intended with paper cups but I didn't had those available. If so, why didn't I got the message about disqualification at first and are there other instructables in the contest which only have plans about using paper cups but no cup was used? Will it help if I rebuild it with paper cups?

Automatic Coffee Cup Warmer

I was given a coffee cup warmer many years ago. What made it so great was that it only turns on when there is a cup sitting on the plate; remove the cup and the warmer turns off. The other great feature about it, is that it has a higher temperature than any I have purchased since. There is no name thereon so cannot check to see if they exist anymore - no luck with Google so far.   What I would like to do is either be able to safely adjust a current model so it is somewhat hotter or, preferably, also make it automatic. Making it hotter is the first priority. jackew@earthlink.net

Any ideas on resuseing fast food cups? Answered

While driving to work a used McD's cup sitting in my cup hold got me to thinking.  I was wondering if anyone has thought about a way to reuse the wax coated card/paper drink cups you get from fast food places?  People are always thowing them out and if we could come up with a way to get people to reuse them in some way, it might help the sides of the roads look better (less trash).

Self-Stirring Cup Concept

The cup doesn't really stir itself on its own, but it has a ball that fits into a groove that can be swirled around to mix up your tea and sugar. It's a funny concept that's looking for a manufacturer, but is there a problem with stirring out there that I'm not aware of? Also, do you want to be swishing HOT tea in your hand in the morning before you've really woken up? Sounds like a noisy recipe for disaster to me and that's assuming you can keep the ball and cup together after a couple of washings. Linkvia Neatorama

Exploding K-cups in a Keurig coffeemaker

Our Keurig coffeemaker is several years old. We began to see a ragged star opening in the top of the K-cups after brewing and coffee grounds various places outside the K-cup. All of the usual recommended fixes were no help. (See below.) This video gave me a solution that worked very well for us. (I have no personal connection to the video or its maker.) We now see only a neat round hole in the top of our K-cups after brewing, not a torn and ragged opening. Video summary: Remove two screws under the flip-up cover above the K-cup holder. Remove the decorative plastic cover by tugging at it. Snip the zip tie that keeps the soft white tube on the fitting. Pull the tube from the fitting. Hold the end of the tube over a cup. Cycle water through the Keurig until several cups come out clean. Clear the upper and lower needles of coffee grounds. Attach the tube with a new zip tie and screw the cover back in place. One word of caution: Very hot water spewed onto the soft skin at the base of my thumb and it was very uncomfortable. I draped a folded towel over my hand while hot water was being expelled from the disconnected tube at the top of the Keurig. Also, I ran quite a number of cups of water through the Keurig until I got three consecutive cups of water without any debris particles of any kind in the water. (I did not see an accumulation of coffee grounds like the man describes in the video, but I saw what was similar to pieces of a brown wing from a housefly.) In the two or three days following the procedure in the video we did occasionally have a K-cup blowout, but have seen only perfect round holes after a week or so, and we probably brew a dozen cups of coffee each day. The usual recommendations-- +Keurig's official recommendation as the cause of grounds migrating outside the K-cup is too much air inside the K-cup as evidenced by a domed lid on the K-cup before it is punctured. Their recommendation is to poke the top of the K-cup with a pin before putting it into the Keurig. Because of my observations and experience, I give very little credence to this. +Accumulated lime from the water needs to be descaled from the inside of the Keurig. Lime accumulation does cause a partially full cup of brewed coffee. We regularly descale our machine. We have also run water through our machine whenever we have seen grounds in our coffee and some grounds came out with the water. Descaling is a good thing to do, but I doubt it has a connection to bursting K-cups and grounds where they do not belong.  +Clogged upper and lower needles. The video will direct you to use a wire to insure open passageways inside the needles above and below the K-cup.

Vuvuzela filtering for World Cup

The biggest complaint I keep hearing about the World Cup is about the vuvuzelas, plastic horns that get blown for everything and nothing. This makes me almost glad that I'm missing practically every game because of the broadcast times and the fact that my TV only has bunny ears for reception. Well, PopSci has found that some people are fighting back by filtering out the frequencies of the vuvuzelas at 233 Hz, 466 Hz, 932 Hz, and 1864 Hz. It's a good enough trick that it makes me almost want to upgrade my setup so that I can try it out. Simple Software Can Filter Out That Vuvuzela Whine From World Cup Broadcasts
