          No, I do not recommend this product.
          I was eager to try the Simple Green Multi-Surface Floor Cleaner as I have both tile and wood floors. This floor cleaner cleaned both the tile and wood floors well. The application was easy, but I only cleaned a small portion of the floor, about an 20” square area. The only thing that I did not care for was the wood floor and tile surface was dulled a little bit after cleaning. After drying, I was able to polish the surface with a dry cloth and the “shine” returned. My floors were not shiny, shiny floors, but have a matte sheen. The photos show the dirty tile, the cleaned tile and an attempt at showing the sheen difference.
          Pros: Easy to Use
          Cons: left matte finish

          This pot lid mounted shelf fit my kitchen cabinet perfectly. It was very easy to install. Just level it up and mark where the screws will go. This is a sturdy lid rack and not flimsy. Because of the different types and styles of pan covers I have, I could not use all the spaces, but it is wonderful to have them hanging sup o I can use the shelf for other items. This turned out to be very handy. I’d definitely suggest purchasing this as long a you have room for it.

          This popcorn maker was extremely well packed. The popcorn maker was easy to assemble. The machine is slightly larger than I expected, but not unreasonable for a 4 oz popcorn popper. We washed all the parts before popping any corn. The bottom has holes in it and there is a slide-out tray where unpopped kernels fall. Making the popcorn created a slight challenge. Above all, THROW OUT the first batch. There were two scoops, several spoons, similar to tea or tablespoon sizes. We weren’t really sure how to use the included spoons.

          This popcorn maker was extremely well packed. The popcorn maker was easy to assemble. The machine is slightly larger than I expected, but not unreasonable for a 4 oz popcorn popper. We washed all the parts before popping any corn. The bottom has holes in it and there is a slide-out tray where unpopped kernels fall. Making the popcorn created a slight challenge. Above all, THROW OUT the first batch. There were two scoops, several spoons, similar to tea or tablespoon sizes. We weren’t really sure how to use the included spoons. Also included were 4 popcorn containers like the old time popcorn square, tall buckets and sleeves. The enclosed book/catalogue had vague directions which conflicted with the instructions on the machine glass door. The catalog says it’s best to use a pre-packaged oil/popcorn package. However, the pre-packaged popcorn was more expensive than using your own oil and popcorn. Use the directions on the glass door and turn on the cooker for a few minutes before adding ingredients. (The book says never have the cooker on without ingredients.) It has taken about 6-7 trials to perfect a decent batch. Some mistakes were not using the correct proportion of oil/corn and salt and not letting the cooker heat up first. Also, I was used to popping corn in a stove-top popcorn maker and judged ingredients by sight. It is a little hard to get the oil and popcorn in the cooker. If all the ingredients were put in the popper and then it is turned on, the popcorn seems a little soggy. If you have a fairly consistent need and place for a popcorn machine, this will be a nice addition . This only makes about 8 cups per batch. Read Less

          This is a beautiful pot. Nice finish with a glass lid with a steam hole. Packaging left a little to be desired. The pot was shipped in a box with some brown paper stuffing to keep the pot from moving around. There wasn’t really enough paper and fortunately, the pot or cover was not damaged. The pot is of medium weight with a nice glass lid that has a vent hole in it. I was excited to get a smaller stock pot and the first use was to boil pasta. The pot heated & cooked well. After cleaning the pot, I noticed tiny pock marks in the bottom of the pan. I’m not sure if the salt I added to the pasta water did this or not.

          This charging station is a nice rose gold and white color. It is compact so it doesn’t take up much space. The cords to each device are not included. The benefits are several items can be charged at one time and they don’t take up much space. A downside is you can’t put a tablet in the back slot and phones in the front slots. The weight of the tablet flips the charging station backwards because the front weight is too light. I have a short cord for my phone and thought it would be great as it wouldn’t take up much space. The problem comes when the phone rings and you try to pick it up without unplugging the charger. The entire charger and whatever else is on it goes flying. I try to use this Read More
