What have the Dutch done for ‘Merica? It’s a good question and unless you’re incredibly smart (which you aren’t if your reading Gadgets 4 Guys) you probably don’t know. The Dutch have invented the telescope which has allowed men for years to creep on unsuspecting neighbors. The Dutch have invented the submarine which took some guts to be part of that beta test. The Dutch were also credited with inventing the artificial kidney which has given alcoholics everywhere hope. What was their greatest gift to the world though? Amsterdam. If you want to find anything and everything possible and not get in any trouble for it, Amsterdam should be your vacation spot.
There is now a new challenger trying to import an awesome gadget to the US. As Americans we have always loved a good hot tub as long as you didn’t have to awkwardly share it with your buddy. There has been a lack of innovation though which is why the Dutchtub Wood is so appealing. The Dutchtub is actually powered by wood which transfers heat from the fire and uses it to heat the water up. The circulation of the heat is rather simple but it could also allow you to double it as a grill as well (they don’t say that but we saw the opportunity). That means you won’t have outrageous electric bills to power the hot tub and can power it as easily as starting a fire. We haven’t had a hands on with this but there are rumors that this thing is actually somewhat portable. We would say that you can bring it on your camping trip but nobody wants to sit in a tub of hot water with your hunting buddy Earl. He always looks like he hasn’t showered in over a month. Check out the Dutchtub Wood and see if it is right for you (reminder: you will also need about $8k). It is a great invention and wives everywhere will be much more happier with this instead of a Dutch Oven. Click here to purchase and for image source.
