          These scissors are fantastic. They come part at the middle for quick and easy cleaning. You can also sharpen the blades easily because of this too.
          They can be used for any number of purposes. The directions say they can peel vegetables. That might be a stretch, The same for using them as a screwdriver. Using this device is not what pops into my head when I think I need a screwdriver. But you can definitely scale a fish with them; that too is on the list of things it can do.
          I will be using them primarily to cut up whole chickens. When I did my first one, they cut through so easy. My old pair of kitchen shears were beginning to get dull.

          There are other features on this to, like a bottle opener! I don't know if I would use the one blade that has a serrated knife as a part of it, but might come in handy if I take them camping. I do like the little grippers on the inside of the handle. This can be used to help twist off tops to bottles.
          While the box says they can be put in the dishwasher, it says hand washing is recommended. It probably has to do with the rubber grip on the handles. It is rubberized for a firm grip.
          This has a one year warranty. Read Less

          LG’s newest top-mount refrigerator has the largest capacity in the 33 in. wide category, featuring 24 cu. ft. of total storage space in the refrigerator and freezer. That means more room for keeping food fresh, including LG’s full-width Glide ‘n’ Serve Pantry Drawer and convenient internal water dispenser. It’s as bright an idea as the modern glow of LG’s LED light panel illumination.

          This fridge is huge. And you can really pack it up. We use it as a garage refrigerator; mainly to keep drinks cold and left over that won't quite fit in the house fridge. Perfect addition for all major holidays.
          The humidity controlled fruits and vegetable crispers are good size at 10" long x 8" in depth and 12" wide each. The shelving is approximately 19" deep and 29" wide. The door shelves are 7" in depth and 25" long. There are two of them, but when you open the door quickly, it can topple the bottles over if the shelf is not fully packed or if they are tall like liter soda bottles or water bottles.

The depth though is great for condiment bottles. It also comes with a full width gliding pantry drawer.
          It has ample lighting. I also like that while the door does not appear to be weighted, it does make an alarm sound when it has been opened for 60 seconds. There are alarms to prevent seal leakage and frosting in the freezer too.
          One of the big selling points to me is that it is energy efficient and the sticker that comes on it says it should cost approximately $60 on average annually. It is also super quiet.
          I have not had a door-handle-less fridge before. The caveat is fingerprints, but you can keep the protective film from shipping on the front panels I know we can always use stainless cleaning wipes for the inevitable fingerprints in the future.
          We don't have the ice-maker hooked up, but there is that too inside the freezer. The freezer works great. We have only had it a few weeks now, but it gets things ice cold frozen quickly.
          Additionally, we really like that the wheels make it easy to move around, if needed, for adjustment. The directions say it needs at least a few inches (2 or more) all the way around for venting of it.
          The warranty for most parts and labor is limited to one year. Then, the warranty it is five years from purchase date for parts only (condenser, evaporator, and compressor only). This is for the USA only. Canada's from the directions booklet is a little different (ranging from 7-10 years for additional warranties). Read Less

          This is an excellent purifier. It has a HEPA filter and a carbon activated filter too (3 in 1 unit).
          We already have several types of filters throughout the house. We mainly got this for the purpose of having it in a bedroom, but instead put it in our front room. Because we tend to have our windows/door open throughout the day, we use this primarily at night.
          I have had it on low and medium speeds and it so quiet that it does not disturb our sleep whatsoever. When on the high setting, it just sounds like a normal oscillating fan would. In fact, when on, the product works with the filter in the back and what feels like a little fan in the front. It will not cool a room down as a fan. Read More

In fact, when on, the product works with the filter in the back and what feels like a little fan in the front. It will not cool a room down as a fan. But if it is a warm summer day and this is on and you are near it, the machine can be a nice little extra feature.
          I like that it is black and is small in stature. It is also thin, so you can put it pretty much anywhere in the house and it will blend in.
          As with any air purifier, you can't really see it "working." Instead you will notice the difference after it has been turned on. We don't sneeze nearly as much in our home. Not that we sneezed a whole lot before. But I got this at the beginning of summer so a lot of remaining spring allergens were still present. I think it also cuts down on household dust too. The box says it is good for 222 sq feet, so it won't do your whole house. But for the immediate area this is in, I don't nearly pick up as must dust when I do weekly house cleaning.
          I also think it does help with the air. Especially at night when I cook dinner. Most meals you want to smell because they are good. But there are some cooking smells, that despite being delicious can leave a lingering and unwanted smell in the house. This unit helps with that!
          The machine is supposed to let you know when to change the filter. And the directions say it should be good for a year or so. I have only had it a month. Only time will tell there.
          It comes with a 3 year warranty. Read Less

          A green lawn is a healthy lawn and a healthy lawn is a product of a thriving ecosystem within your soil. That's why Safer Brand has created Lawn Restore a fertilizer that immediately goes to work to ensure the proper balance of natural elements in your soil, in turn giving you a healthier, greener lawn. Backed by over a quarter-century of research and development, this formula is the best choice for any turf; use it to promote greening in fresh sod or bring life back to existing grass. And since Lawn Restore covers 25% more square footage than the previous formula, its more economical than ever before. Your grass feeds off of nutrients in your soil that are produced by beneficial bacteria and fungi. Lawn Restore feeds that bacteria and fungi so that they can naturally produce those nutrients that your grass needs to flourish. Other synthetic fertilizers directly feed the grass, not only neglecting the beneficial bacteria and fungi, but killing them off. Without these organisms in your soil, your grass cannot survive on its own. Rather than disrupting your soils valuable ecosystem, Lawn Restore promotes it, giving you a healthy, weed-free lawn, naturally. Not only does Lawn Restore make your lawn greener and fuller above ground, but it also promotes a deep, strong root system below ground. Strong roots are necessary in the long-term health of your turf, protecting it from drought, diseases and maintaining a natural flow of healthy nutrients to your grass.

          This is an all season, no burn fertilizer per the package's directions. It is also good for all lawns. There are no disclaimers about treating certain types of grass blend. This is a key component for our lawn since we have a mix of fescue, bermuda and st. augustine.
          This fertilizer is granule and can be spread with a hand feeder or a walk behind trough. There are no phosphates in the blend. It say it is a no odor fertilizer. This is a little misleading. The bag upon opening smells like fertilizer. But I will say, once applied on the lawn, that dissipates and there really is no odor.

But I did see more growth. The description says that it promotes healthy soil by returning nutrients to the soil as well as the grass (nitrogen and potash)
          Only time will tell. But so far, this is an affordable fertilizer blend that appears to work. Read Less

          This is a nice starter set for any person who needs cooking equipment. It is made out of aluminum and you get one large pot, one large sauce pot with a handle and two smaller variations of a sauce/stew/soup pots with handles. All come with lids. In the package, you also get two smaller frying pans and all sorts of spatulas, ladles and spoons. It even comes with a spaghetti noodle spoon!

          While I would never pay this price for the utensils alone, those are the selling point to this packaged set. They are all durable cooking grade rubber/plastic. They will not scratch the surface of the pans -- which while coated nicely as new are still aluminum with a top coat of non stick sealer. I say that, because there is only a 30 day warranty on the items. That is a good indicator that you will know if your set is good or not, and likely upon use.
          Another nice feature is the little vent hole in the lids. It helps prevent spillage from boiled and heavy simmering.
          They are dishwasher safe, but I would not recommend that with the non-stick surface coating. If you have heavy stains, just let the pot sit with warm water and dish soap. Then come back to it. Let the non-stick coating do its job. The food will lift on its own and you can wipe it down with a sponge.
          I can totally see this set used in an RV or out camping. If they get banged up, it won't matter. They are good to cook with. Read Less

          Can this be used in concrete. I cannot find a cost effective planter and want to fabricate my own of concrete. I'd like to use this as means to keep the concrete together, much like rebar.

          Answer: 
          This is thin chicken wire. You can use it for mesh netting or to staple to a fence like I did for flowers and bushes to grow on. To do concrete work might require more girth'y rebar than this. This product cuts with general scissors.

          Yes. But be aware this stuff is pretty strong. So if you are going to attempt a fall seeding, you will want to mow your lawn down to the nub without your catcher (leave the clippings on your lawn), Then overseed as directed per your seed directions and sprinkle the manure blend over the top.
