          The Wiss Auto-Retracting Utility Knife's blade retracts automatically the moment it loses contact with the material being cut, even if the user is still holding the blade slider forward in the "open" position. It makes every cutting job safe. The handle is made of metal and the blade is made of steel.

          The utility knife has a nice heavy feel and fits well in your hand. The quick release feature is fabulous! I hate it when I have to switch out a blade on my other utility knife because it takes so long. This knife has a switch on the side that has the label "Work/Change". When you want to change the blade, just move the switch to "Change" and the blade just slides right out. The reason I knocked off a star is because it doesn't come apart. So, if you cut something that gums up the blade, you can't clean it out. Also, I like the utility knives that allow you to put additional blades in the body so you always have spares and don't have to go and hunt them down.
          Pros: Accurate, Good Size & Weight, Sturdy

          I have to admit that I am a Kohler and Grohe person. I love the quality/warranty of Kohler and up to my most recent purchase, the quality of Grohe. You pay a premium for those brands, but this faucet puts them to shame. I can't believe how well this faucet is built. It is seriously heavy, I mean I weighed it because it was soo heavy! The quality of construction and detail is perfect. At this price? Unbelievable. I purchase the Grohe Concetto faucet for roughly the same price and this is 100% better quality. The Grohe feels cheap in comparison. The Grohe also has plastic products, this one does not. I will be replacing Grohe with Annzi!

          The one complaint I have is most single hole faucets include a piece that you can use to cover holes of a sink that was original designed for 4" or 8" spread faucets, this one does not. It is clearly listed as a single hole faucet, but some people might expect the cover. Read Less

          No, I do not recommend this product.
          The toilet seat was very easy to install and the quality very good. I did not have any problems with the hinges that some people had. Maybe Kohler fixed them? The night light was a let down - it isn't that bright.. First, the light is on a 7 hour timer so you need to turn it on when you want it to come on. Sounds like no big deal, but you have to remember to go into your bathroom let say at 9pm and press the button. It will then run from 9pm until 4am, every day. To reset it, you have to push the power button. The batteries are not protected from liquids (cleaners, urine, water) so when we installed it we set it as far back as possible.

Kohler does have a "quick release" to make it easier to remove the seat for replacing the batteries and cleaning. Read Less

          I had to replace my outdoor cushions,and my new ones were just a tad small so I needed some outdoor pillows to use as a 'bolster' as well as give some fun color. My furniture is black and the new cushions were red, so these were a perfect match. The colors are very vibrant and the picture online accurate. This pillows would go with a variety of different color cushions.They are very comfortable but I took one star off due to the size. These would be awesome if they were larger, say 18x18 or 20x20.

WELL - I didn't realize that there was this little magnet at the bottom of the washing machine door that would keep the door just the slightest bit open so it could air dry between loads. It was probably in the instruction manual that I neglected to read. Well, when we sold the house, the new owners wanted the washer/dryer, so I bought the same set for our new house. Well, I learned from my previous mistakes. After every wash, I wipe out the rubber tub ring and leave the door ajar with the magnet and no mold, no smell. Yes, it is a pain in the butt to do after every wash, but it is worth it. The features and capacity on this washing machine is fabulous. I can put in a full set of Cal king sheets, four pillow cases and have room for more - and they come out clean! Also, I highly recommend using white vinegar for every wash in the bleach drawer. Not only does it help whiten and disinfect the clothing, it is great for keeping the tub ring mildew free. 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.
