          Cuckoo, Always New. With 40 years of experience and a dominant presence in 30 nations, Cuckoo has established itself as a premier home appliance brand in Asia. We have 99% brand recognition in Korea and are excited to bring that success to the US. The Cuckoo research and development team worked hard to combine industry leading filter technology, advanced features, and intuitive design into an experience unrivaled in the US. Pre-Carbon 2.0: Reduces Heavy Metals (Lead), Particulates, Odor, Organic Substances, Chlorine, THM, Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs), and Cysts. Nano Positive: The electric charge in our Nano Positive filter attracts harmful charged particles eliminating 99.99% of viruses and bacteria while allowing beneficial minerals to pass. It also removes any residual heavy metals, germs, algae and fungi. Mineralizer: It is not enough to simply remove the BAD stuff from your water. This creates a mineral enriched, mild alkaline healthy water supplying critical nutrients to help balance pH. Filter Replacement Alarm: No need to set a filter change reminder, Cuckoo does that for you. Touch Control Panel with Mood Light: Simple, clean and elegant. Compact Design with Direct Flow: Designed to fit in any living space. Simple DIY Install: Easy install with standard faucet adapter or T-valve under your sink - both included with unit.

          Cuckoo Electronics seems to be making a presence in North America since 2016 with their many small home appliances, such as rice cookers and this countertop water purifier. Cuckoo is an established brand from Korea since 1999 and they offer a quality free standing dispenser for us to filter great tasting water at our fingertips. It weighs about 7 lbs and has the dimensions of 5.3" x 14.9" x 14.4". My family drinks lots of water each day and previously had two water pitchers that we would have to constantly refill.

          Cuckoo Electronics seems to be making a presence in North America since 2016 with their many small home appliances, such as rice cookers and this countertop water purifier. Cuckoo is an established brand from Korea since 1999 and they offer a quality free standing dispenser for us to filter great tasting water at our fingertips. It weighs about 7 lbs and has the dimensions of 5.3" x 14.9" x 14.4". My family drinks lots of water each day and previously had two water pitchers that we would have to constantly refill. Undoubtedly whenever one of us would refill a pitcher someone else would come along a minute later and try to fill a cup or water bottle before the water has finished filtering through which assuredly ended up with water on the counter. Now that we’ve installed the Direct Flow Countertop Water System (Model CP-MN031BK) we no longer have to worry about that. The case can be off to the side on the counter and takes up less space than the two pitchers that we used to have.
          Installation was quicker and easier than I had expected. I could attach the hose directly to the faucet but instead I preferred the other option of putting the hose down a hole from my countertop and connected it to the stop valve that came in the package. (The hole has to be at least 5/16 wide for the hose) As you can see in the video, it’s just a touch of a button to fill a water bottle or glass. The one cup feature is very nice if that’s all you need to dispense.
          The Cuckoo CP-MN031BK Countertop Water Filtration System includes the following filters which can be found for under $20 each:
          Level 1 Pre-Carbon Filter (Filter Life: 4 months)
          Level 2 Nano Positive Filter (Filter Life: 12 months)
          Level 3 Mineralizer Filter (Filter Life: 12 months)
          My family has been enjoying the ease of being able to fill our bottles with no mess or waiting for a pitcher to refill. The only comment I have is that this dispenser is an excellent water purification system, NOT a cooler. Do not expect cold, cold water. This would be very useful for anyone's home or apartment and can be packaged up easily if you have to. Read Less

          I use these as dust masks while working on home improvement projects. This week I spent some time under the house in the musty, dirty crawl space. The filter effectively filtered out the musty smell of damp earth and wood. The filter was also effective at filtering out fiberglass insulation and lots of dust. I took before and after photos that show inside and out views. As you would like to see, much dust was trapped on the outside and only a little found inside, through gaps between the mask and my face.

          Add a splash of color to your summer with this 9 ft. Hampton Bay patio umbrella. Its vibrant, weather-resistant polypropylene fabric repels fading and withstands the outdoor elements. Offering ample shade, this patio umbrella is easy to open and close with its crank lift mechanism. You can reposition the hexagon-shaped umbrella throughout the day with its push-button tilt function, ensuring you stay cool all day. Its durable, rust-resistant aluminum pole is powder-coated with a bronze finish. There is no assembly required to enjoy this charming patio umbrella.

          How relaxing it is to be able to sit outside under an umbrella that protects us from the sun and rain! This Hampton Bay umbrella needs no assembly out of the box. It weighs close to 17 lbs. and the 1.5 inch diameter pole easily fit into the center hole on our outdoor patio table. It measures 106 inches in height and when the umbrella is fully open has a diameter of 9 feet. The blue canvas material has a coating of polypropylene which protects it from fading and moisture. We tested the tilting feature of this umbrella which was very easy to use but I doubt we’ll ever use that much.

          How relaxing it is to be able to sit outside under an umbrella that protects us from the sun and rain! This Hampton Bay umbrella needs no assembly out of the box. It weighs close to 17 lbs. and the 1.5 inch diameter pole easily fit into the center hole on our outdoor patio table. It measures 106 inches in height and when the umbrella is fully open has a diameter of 9 feet. The blue canvas material has a coating of polypropylene which protects it from fading and moisture. We tested the tilting feature of this umbrella which was very easy to use but I doubt we’ll ever use that much. The 9 feet width covers our deck area quite a bit, but the tilt is a nice feature to have if we ever need it as the sun goes down in the evening. My only comment or concern is that a person would have to be 5' 5" or taller to be able to reach and press the button to make the umbrella tilt. To raise and lower the umbrella I have to crank the lever which glides smoothly even though I have to move my head out of the way of the umbrella.
          The Hampton Bay umbrella comes in many different colors to suit your taste. We chose the blue one with scalloped edges. With the warm summer months we’ve been able to enjoy lunches and evening meals outside. We can eat, read and talk while in the shade and feel the breeze. We had a few gusts of winds and the umbrella held up very well. I couldn’t tell you had fast the wind was, but our umbrella is securely planted into the base under the table. If the weather gets really bad I can tie the long strap that is attached to firmly close the umbrella.
          This umbrella seems to be well made and constructed with strong aluminum for sturdy support. I have no doubt that it will last several seasons here in the Pacific Northwest.

          The solid gel works by trapping and absorbing malodors into the gel. Use in pet or odor problem areas in your home, office, RV/camper, gym locker, storage areas, garage or basement. Convenient packaging ensures maximum product usage.

          I can think of many tried and true remedies to get rid of that stinky smell but they are either short lived or cost more money. Now I can throw away those over-scented essential oil air fresheners that evaporate too quickly or leave cut lemons in a dish. This small jar of OdoBan odor absorber does the trick quickly and for very little money. The gel has a light and pleasant aroma of lemons with a touch of lavender that is not overpowering but eliminates odor in all of the places that I tested it. The cat's litter drifted through the laundry room and into the hallway, but I put this jar in the open and the smell all but disappeared!

The cat's litter drifted through the laundry room and into the hallway, but I put this jar in the open and the smell all but disappeared! Next was the hall closet with coats, shoes and a vacuum cleaner. Instead of a musty odor we now open the door and the smell of lemons comes wafting out. I wish I had OdoBan when we painted each room. I'm sure that it would have helped immensely. It's designed to work up to 45 days and so far we've had it for over a month and it's doing great.
          It's also available in eucalyptus & wildflower scent and can be found in smaller solid pods for small spaces. This is an excellent product for people who want a refreshing scent without the perfumy smell.

          Post-dinner party cleanup. Let your LG dishwasher do the heavy lifting. LG QuadWash provides maximum cleaning coverage making it easier than ever to get your dishes clean and with TrueSteam technology you get up to 60% less water spots. The 3rd rack gives you more space to fit everything from long flatware to oversized cooking utensils.

          We needed to replace the old dishwasher that came with our new home but choosing a dishwasher is not as easy as it seems. With so many models to consider, we chose the LG Electronics Top Control Dishwasher with QuadWash and True Steam two months ago. Not only did it fit our wallet, but it also the dimensions of the space. We started our search and found this dishwasher that is energy efficient and has the capacity to fit most of our dishes and pans. We wash a lot of bowls and the top rack has plenty of room for bowls, cups and more. The bottom rack seems to hold more dishes and pots and pans than what we need, but it will definitely come in handy around family dinners and celebrations. Read More

          Installation was easy and it comes with a thick manual in English, Spanish and French with plenty of helpful suggestions and a troubleshooting guide. The dimensions are 33.6 inches high on the outside and the inside height is 24 inches and 24.5 inches deep which is pretty much standard in most dishwashers.
          So far, we are loving this dishwasher and all of its features, such as a third rack for silverware and knives and the special handles for stemware glasses.

          Depends on your use. In my dusty crawl space, I use them for about 5 hours and replace when I can see the dirt. I broke the elastic strap at about the 5 hour point.

          Pergo FloorMate is the perfect companion for your new floating laminate or engineered wood floors. It can even be used with Pergo laminate with attached pad to enhance the performance of your floor. This premium underlayment with moisture barrier included creates a more natural sound in the room and helps to reduce sound transmission to rooms below. It also provides better thermal insulation, helping to keep your room temperature where you want it. The easy to use fan-fold underlayment covers 100 square feet per pack and lays flat when you install it unlike traditional rolled underlayment which will curl back when you unroll it, making installation more difficult. The easy cut guidelines on Pergo FloorMate make it simple to trim to the right size.
