          As other reviewers pointed out, the bad thing with "one size fits all" is they are going to run large. But maybe because this material is thicker, these gloves fit pretty good on my smaller (woman) hands. The thickness of the gloves also makes them last longer than regular latex. I do a lot of wood work/refinishing and these work great for sanding and steel wool. I would not use them for stripping off finish.
          Pros: Durable

          As other reviewers pointed out, the bad thing with "one size fits all" is they are going to run large. As a woman, I have small hands so these are huge on me. They are better suited to men. It you are doing a small project and don't want to buy a box of 100 count, then this is a good buy. However because they are so loose/large, they really aren't good if you need the gloves tight fitting so you can accurately pick up small items or doing detail work. These would be good for a painting project or to throw in your car for emergency use. Otherwise, as a woman, I recommend spending some more money and getting the 100 count that come in small.

          I've owned another manufacture’s measuring tapes my whole life but this Milwaukee Premium Magnetic Tape Measure has won me over. Large numbers and lines make measuring easy and printed on both sides is also very handy, what a great idea! The large magnetic end is very rigid and allows the tape to attach/hook from both sides. The finger access to hold tap or slow it down on rewind is great and it all fits into my hand quite well. Good strong belt clip finishes the job on this sturdy durable tool.
          This is not a con, but it is heavy due to the size of the tape (35ft). It weighs 1lb 9oz, so this is a tape to use on those big projects. I would recommend getting the 25ft for the every day. Read More

          The time consuming ways of installing hoods are now a thing of the past. The FIT system eliminates measuring, cutting and filler strips for a perfect fit every time. Once installed, homeowners enjoy the quiet operation of 7 sones at its highest speed with 3 fan speeds and recirculation option. This way, the vent hood doesn't disturb family time in the kitchen. And when cooking introduces steam, grease, smoke and odors into the surrounding air, a 350 CFM fan takes care of it. Plus, this model offers LED lighting to brighten the cooking area. Color: Stainless Steel.

          I have owned range hoods by: Broan, Ventahood, and Kobe. This is the first Whirlpool hood that I have tried. Broan, the cheapest of the hoods I have owned, worked okay but within less than a year the on/off button had fallen off. Ventahoods are fabulous and fabulously expensive and very loud! I currently have a Kobe hood and it is great but also pretty expensive in comparison to Whirlpool (3x). The Whirlpool is very easy to install with the included clips. Much nicer and easier than the three previous brands. On the lowest fan setting, it is very quite but at the highest it is loud, not deafening but loud.

I currently have a Kobe hood and it is great but also pretty expensive in comparison to Whirlpool (3x). The Whirlpool is very easy to install with the included clips. Much nicer and easier than the three previous brands. On the lowest fan setting, it is very quite but at the highest it is loud, not deafening but loud. You will be able to talk/hear conversation, but it definitely isn't quiet. It functions better than the Broan which had a the same CFM. This model is rated for 50k BTUs, so make sure you check your stove BTUs before buying.
          We installed it with an exterior vent so I can't comment on the re-circulation capabilities. Overall a good hood, vents well and I really like the LED lights (though they can only be replaced by a service technician). Hopefully the LEDs will last a really long time.
          What I don't like about the hood:is the filter removal and the buttons.
          First, you need a philips screwdriver to remove the grease filter. You should not need a tool to remove something that you are going to clean regularly. At least the filter is dishwasher safe.
          Second, the buttons are push to turn on/ push to turn off (pops out). Well the fan has three speeds - on (lowest setting), medium, and high. Well you can have all the buttons "on/pushed in" at one time, which can be a little confusing. Usually buttons will toggle the other buttons, such as when you put it on 'High' the 'Medium' button will toggle off. This is not the case with this hood. You can turn off the hood and still have the "Medium" and 'High" button on, but the fan will be turned off. I know this is minor, but it is opposite of every hood I have owned.
          Overall, a good solid hood at a good price. At this price point, I would buy Whirlpool over Broan based on my experience. Read Less

          I have never had a heated jacket, so I really didn't have any expectations. After using it for the last month, I don't know why I didn't get one sooner. First, the jacket: it is extremely well made, slim fitting and very stylish. I love the 'thumb holes' that keeps the jacket nice and tight around the hands. It ha an inner zippered pocket that holds my large Note5 phone. As previous reviewers have stated, it runs small. I usually wear a small, but got a medium and it fits perfect. There is a zippered pocket in the back where you plug in the battery, but when the battery is not used, it is large and can be used to store many different items.

There is a zippered pocket in the back where you plug in the battery, but when the battery is not used, it is large and can be used to store many different items.
          Since the jacket runs small, here are the measurements of the jacket lying flat, zipped up: Armpit to Armpit: 20", waist (narrowest part of the jacket):18" neck (not collar) to bottom: 26" shoulder to cuff:25"
          So now for the heating - love it! There are three settings and the control is at the chest. The settings are color coded: red- hottest, white - middle, blue- lowest; Changing the settings is very easy and you have the tactical feel when you toggle between them. To turn on/off the heat, just hold the button down for a few seconds. I absolutely love the warm pockets and the heat is nice and even though the coils are not throughout the jacket. The battery gives you an indication of how much charge is left. So what don't I like? The battery, which is round, sits to the left of the middle of your back so when you sit down in a chair with a back, it feels uncomfortable if you lean back. It doesn't bother you when you are walking around but the battery has some heft to it. I weighed it on the kitchen scale, and it weighs: 9.5oz. Minor issue and the only way I think they could "fix" it is to make the battery flatter, but I bet the battery is used in the other products so that would be a huge manufacturing expense. Awesome jacket and would recommend it, just buy a size larger than you normally wear. Also, buy one for your husband, because mine wants one now! Read Less

          How random is the pattern of the boards? I installed Traffic Master Lakeshore Pecan (looks great) but they only had about eight different patterns so you had to make sure to open all the boxes and sort by pattern before you could lay out your floor otherwise you might have the same pattern next to each other.

          Answer: 
          Hi,
          Yes you still need to leave the gap. You want to put in 100% waterproof clear silcone between the gap and the tub, like Tap Silicone Max 10.1 oz. Clear 100% Premium Kitchen and Bath Silicone Sealant (model: #08668). I would then install the Zamma Starry Light 5/8 in. Thick x 3/4 in. Wide x 94 in. Length Vinyl Quarter Round Molding (Model # 015143850) to cover the gap and finish it off.
