          The Char-Broil 3-Burner Hybrid Charcoal/Propane Gas Grill offers the best of both grilling worlds. A two in one convenient 3-burner gas grill that heats up quickly for every day meals and a traditional charcoal grill that infuses intense flavor for more sophisticated recipes. Its 3 stainless steel burners easily ignite the charcoal briquettes without using lighter fluids. For additional flavor, add wood chips to your charcoal to get that smoky flavor in your food. This grill features a total of 545 sq. in. of total cooking area that easily converts to a gas or charcoal unit and charcoal in seconds with no tools required.

          This hybrid grill seems to be an average-quality grill with above-average features. It was easy to assemble in about an hour. The "average" qualities include decent wheels, good heat output from the propane burners, a side burner, and metal that's thinner than what you would find on a higher-end grill. One of the only negatives of this grill is that it can't accommodate really tall items (like beer-can chicken). The "above-average" features are mainly the removable/stowable charcoal pan, and the storage rack for the gas burner shields (when you're using the charcoal). Because you can remove the charcoal pan in its entirety, it's super easy to empty and clean. I don't grill with charcoal very Read More

Because you can remove the charcoal pan in its entirety, it's super easy to empty and clean. I don't grill with charcoal very often, so I like that fact that it's easy to switch from propane to charcoal and back again. Of course, someone who uses charcoal all the time would probably want a more dedicated charcoal grill with a thicker pan.
          Overall this is a good value grill. I wish the metal was a bit thicker so that it would be more durable, but to be honest, my last grill was made of stronger material and the burners and guts corroded before the rest of the grill... so unless you're going for a really high-end grill that will last 20 years, this is a good versatile option.

          First, I have to say I'm impressed that Empire guarantees the level's accuracy for life. Second, this is surprisingly light for a 78" box level (I almost got an I-beam level instead to save weight but am glad I got this!). Third, I love the flexible bumpers at the ends - they keep me from dinging my new walls and flooring. Finally, I checked the level using the 180-degree test, and it seems to be dead-on for my purposes.
          This is the longest level I've had (already have 2', 3', and 4' box levels) and overall it's really useful for large installation projects. Although a laser level can handle huge projects, the price of this level would be well worth it for installing doors jambs, oversized Read More

          This is the most powerful cordless blower I've ever used and is even more powerful (at 480 CFM) than my previous corded blower. The 56V battery is surprisingly lightweight and has a handy indicator light to let you know if there's any juice left (push a button and it turns green if there's power left). The lithium battery lasts a long time and does well even in cooler temperatures. Although I used to be a diehard "human-powered" gardener, I have enough perennial beds that are mulched with gravel or bark that I needed a better way to clean leaves out of the yard and gardens. The lowest setting on this blower does a great job of moving leaves but not bark mulch. The highest setting will move Read More

The lowest setting on this blower does a great job of moving leaves but not bark mulch. The highest setting will move just about any dry material, and the turbo button (which works on high or low settings) will move anything that's not nailed down! I use the turbo to clean wet crabapples and black sunflower seeds off my patio in the spring. I also have the Ego string trimmer and like that I can use the batteries interchangeably (one on the charger, and one on the tool for uninterrupted power gardening!). I had never heard of Ego before getting these tools, but I'm very impressed by the balance and weight of their tools, the long battery life, the power, and the brushless motors.
          I gave this only 4 stars for value because I know there are cheaper options out there. However, you get what you pay for, and I'd recommend this over the less expensive, less versatile blowers. Read Less

          This is by far the most powerful and easiest-to-use string trimmer I've ever had. It's very well-balanced and comfortable to carry and use (and I'm not huge nor super strong). The controls are intuitive. The 56V battery has longer life than any other cordless lawn tools I've seen, and the battery-tester light (push the button to see if there's power left) is handy. The trimmer has a brushless motor and is powerful enough to clean up perennial bunchgrasses in the spring. I especially like the 'bump'-type string feeder - it doesn't get any easier than that. Based on the durability of the included string, I expect that one roll will last the entire season with a few 'bumps' here and there to Read More

          I got TCP's LED smart home lighting system last year, and this is the first bulb I've gotten to add to my system. The quality of the bulb itself is great and it's plenty bright for my front porch. I also like that the smartphone app turns it into a dimmable bulb, even though the fixture is not set up with a dimmer. Adding the bulb to the smart lighting system was very intuitive. From the time I started the smartphone app and selected "Add New Lights" (in the Configuration menu), it took about 2 minutes for the system to find the new bulb and for me to set up a new "room" control.

          My husband and I both have smartphones, and when adding this bulb we realized that anytime either of us makes changes to our rooms, scenes, or schedules, we must be at home and connected via our wireless router rather than the 4G network, and THEN logged into the app. I added the new bulb, created it as a new room ("front porch"), added the bulb to 2 existing scenes/timers and created a new one just for the porch - my husband saw all the updates via the app on his phone within another minute or two.

          The product description says indoors. However, I installed one of the similar Kasa bulbs (the multicolor one) in my outdoor porch light and it worked fine, even in temps down to about 20F and with dimming to about 30% brightness (I didn't try any lower than that). That said, I suspect outdoor use might void the 2-year warranty.
