          A product of Emerson Ridgid. Made in Mexico. Assembly is required. We found assembling the rear wheel axle to be onerous as we had to devise a way to stabilize the end cap while we pounded it onto the shaft. The method recommended in the user manual didn't seem feasible and we ended up placing the end cap on the floor, inserting the shaft and pounding from the the top. Also, one of the end caps provided was too big. And the assembly kit was missing a screw. Once assembled, the vac rolls easily on smooth surfaces. The user manual recommends storing the cord by wrapping it around the carry handle under two tabs. Unfortunately, there is not enough space between the tabs and the powerhead to Read More

The user manual recommends storing the cord by wrapping it around the carry handle under two tabs. Unfortunately, there is not enough space between the tabs and the powerhead to wrap the entire cord. This shop vac has strong suction and it easily picked up grass, hay, mouse droppings and fur from the concrete floor in my mud room. It includes a variety of tools, including a nozzle head for cars. It is loud, even with the muffler installed. Read Less
          Pros: Good Size & Weight, Sturdy
          Cons: assembly required, unadjustable suction

          A product of GoWISEUSA. I couldn't find the place of manufacture. This is a complex product with many options and a sparse user manual so I'm still learning how to use it. In addition to a pressure cooker, it can saute or be used as a steamer, slow cooker, yogurt maker, canner and rice cooker. There are 3 pressure settings - Low (6.96 PSI), Medium (7.97 - 8.70 PSI), and High (9.28 - 11.99 PSI). Caution - the high pressure setting is too low for canning above 2000'. There are a number of pre-programmed settings. Most default to high pressure and a cooking time. There is also a manual mode.

There are a number of pre-programmed settings. Most default to high pressure and a cooking time. There is also a manual mode. It comes with a steamer rack, steamer basket, rice scooper, measuring cup and recipe book. I steamed some asparagus in it on the default automatic setting (8 minutes). By the time the pressure dropped enough to unlock the lid, the asparagus was over cooked. I tried the recipe for chili. The saute feature worked well for browning the meat but the cooking time for pressure cooking the chili was to short. I then used the slow cooker function for three hours. It still had not cooked down and it had a metallic taste so I added some chili powder and finished up on the stove. Then it was ok. So I have a lot to learn about using it. In conclusion, The user manual and the recipe book are abysmal but for those with the patience to learn it, it could be a useful tool. Read Less

          Marble accents paired with metal finishes is one of the most sought-after trends in lighting design and the Versailles Lamp Collection utilizes this. With a vintage soft gold finish and a classic white linen shade, the Versailles Table Lamp is a perfect picture of refined vintage design with a modern twist. The faux marble on the base is the perfect accent to upscale this lamp into an almost luxurious design that complements all decor styles. Have fun decorating.

          Designed by Globe Electric Company, Quebec, Canada. Made in China. Accepts 60 watt bulb maximum. Not suitable for 3 way bulbs. The switch is at the top of the pole. The clean simple design reminds me of popular styles of the 50s and 60s. The pole and base are made of metal. It is fairly light weight but heavy enough to be stable. The quality is typical of Home Depot lighting products.
          Pros: Easy to Assemble, Functional, Nice Design, Stylish

          The face of these kneepads is made of hard treaded plastic. They are attached with two straps. A 1 1/2 inch wide adjustable elastic strap clips on above the knee. A stretchable strap, 4" wide at the attachment to the pad and 2 1/2 inches wide at the end, is secured by velcro below the knee. I'm at an age where kneeling gets painful quickly. I thought that a product like this would make gardening and household chores more comfortable. I tested these kneepads by doing kneeling chores on a concrete floor. I found them to be comfortable when kneeling, not too awkward when walking and easy to put on and take off. I haven't had them long but the kneepads themselves are sturdy and I expect them to Read More

          GoWISE USA Non-stick Mesh Basket. I tested it by heating mini-corn dogs and left over potatoes in a toaster oven set to run in convection mode. It did a good job. The food was heated properly and was easy to remove from the mesh. And the mesh does not get as hot as a pan. However, the mesh is flimsy and must be placed on a rack before loading. The packaging claims it can be used in a freezer or a microwave but I did not try using it in those. The packaging claims it is dishwasher safe but it is more practical to wash it by hand.
          Pros: Convenient, Easy to Clean, Easy to Use, Performs Well
          Cons: flimsy
