          We believe crafting pour-over coffee should be a ritual you savor. Thats why the OXO Glass Pour-Over Set combines hand-blown borosilicate glass, elegant stainless steel, and all-natural cork to keep the process of making hand-crafted coffee pure and simple. The Server is double-walled to insulate heat and prevent condensation, ensuring your homemade brew, hot or cold, stays at the right temperature until youre ready for your second cup. Color: Clear Glass.

          On the weekends my wife and I relax and enjoy the mornings with a good cup of coffee. That’s when we use the OXO Good Grips Pour-Over Coffee Maker. When we are rushed to get out of the house in the morning we typically try to grab a quick coffee to fill our mugs, but the best is yet to come on the weekends! That’s when we can brew delicious coffee in a few minutes and sit and inhale the delicious aromas of a better tasting coffee. With the pour-over style of coffee, we can take control of our coffee making. We can make the water as hot as we want it, make the coffee to each of our own liking and use whatever blend of coffee flavor we want.

          On the weekends my wife and I relax and enjoy the mornings with a good cup of coffee. That’s when we use the OXO Good Grips Pour-Over Coffee Maker. When we are rushed to get out of the house in the morning we typically try to grab a quick coffee to fill our mugs, but the best is yet to come on the weekends! That’s when we can brew delicious coffee in a few minutes and sit and inhale the delicious aromas of a better tasting coffee. With the pour-over style of coffee, we can take control of our coffee making. We can make the water as hot as we want it, make the coffee to each of our own liking and use whatever blend of coffee flavor we want.
          It would take a little longer compared to drip coffee machines, but the Pour-Over will have less impact on the environment because all that is thrown out is the coffee grounds in the paper filter. The major difference is the bold flavors and intense aroma of fresh brewed coffee. Once the coffee grounds are put in a filter, you are ready to make the magic happen! Saturate the grounds with just enough hot water to let it “bloom” or expand for about 30 seconds. Then SLOWLY pour water on the grounds and watch it drip into the hand-blown double walled borosilicate glass- a type of glass that you can pour boiling hot water into without worrying about shattering or cracking the glass. You can put it in the dishwasher or microwave or leave it out in the hot sun. After watching the coffee dispense to the glass jar below the filter, you are ready to pour and relax. It’s a great way to start the day!
          The OXO Good Grips Pour-Over is the easiest method to brewing delicious bold coffee. This kit comes with a convenient guide to show how much coffee grounds to put in the filter.
          It comes with some filters but you can easily find #2 filters in any store. It also comes with a round cork cover to place on top of the glass jar to preserve the heat, but I discovered that it also fits nicely on top of my mug. It’s very easy to clean- I just rinse and let it dry and it’s ready for the next time. Both my wife and I have enjoyed our coffee using this OXO Good Grips Coffee Maker and would highly recommend it to our family and friends. We can easily bring it to our next family get-together or even to work. We truly like the simplicity of this coffee maker.

          I can’t wait to bring this fridge to my office! I’ll have the convenience of a fridge without the hassle of sharing space with others in the office! This Whirlpool model WH31S1E mini fridge offers 3.1 cu ft of space which is certainly better than the tiny 1.7 cu. ft ones that are half the size and about the same price. Compared to other mini fridges this one has a few details that are unique. This one has not one, but two doors which includes a separate freezer space. The doors can be conveniently reversed according to your needs, which some fridges cannot do. It has an interior light as well as an adjustable thermostat at the front, not the back, of the fridge.

Compared to other mini fridges this one has a few details that are unique. This one has not one, but two doors which includes a separate freezer space. The doors can be conveniently reversed according to your needs, which some fridges cannot do. It has an interior light as well as an adjustable thermostat at the front, not the back, of the fridge. With two full-length glass shelves and a deep vegetable/fruit drawer I’ll have plenty of room for small and large items. The inside of the fridge door has space for two 2L bottles and a 4 can dispenser for quick ease. Just grab and go!
          The description says that the height is 33” but mine measured at 32 ¼ “, but I didn’t have to adjust the front leveling legs. It’s 19 ¼ “ wide and 18 ¼ “ deep with another 2” for the depth of the front door. When the door is open at a 90 degree angle the depth is now 39”. I like that the door handles are built-in and recessed so they won’t snag on anything. The back of the fridge is flat with no coils or cords sticking out.
          Whirlpool has created a practical and convenient mini fridge that has better features than other fridges at a very good price. Whether it’s used for work, home office, dorm room or hobby/tool space, this fridge has ample space and storage. Read Less

You will have to provide a hammer and screw driver (which Stanley tools provides in kids' sizes in Home Depot as well!) Wood glue will be needed and probably more acrylic paint. The kit comes with four small tubs of blue, white, yellow and red, but I suspect kids will want to add more. The 6 tires look like durable thick plastic which should hold up to dirt and other terrain.
          When assembled, the cement mixer will be 7.1 X 8.1 X 5.1 inches. Other types of trucks by Stanley Jr. include the Front Loader, Lifting Crane, Catapult Truck, Dump Truck and a Bulldozer. There's sure to be one or more trucks for a child to love to build and play with!

          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

          This rolling kitchen storage cart does it all. Saturday night its your bar cart, rolling from room to room serving guests. And when you wake up Sunday it goes back to being your cutting board when your kitchen island runs out of room. Hang towels from its adjustable bar and easily access kitchen tools from its pull-out basket. Additional storage can be found in its two bottom shelves. Go ahead, roll it around and smile. Color: Black.

          I JUST MOVED INTO A HOME AND THE OWNERS WERE UNAWARE THE SHOWER VALVE IN OUR MASTER BATHROOM HAS BEEN LEAKING FOR THE LAST 6 MONTHS. THERE IS A LOT OF BLACK OLD AT THE BOTTOM OF THE SHOWER AND WE WOULD LIKE TO CLEAN IT ASAP. ARE THESE MASKS SAFE TO USE WHILE WE CLEAN?

          Answer: 
          According to the NY Dept of Health:"Use an N95 mask even if you cannot see the particles because they may be too small to see. N95 masks do NOT protect you against chemical vapors, gases, carbon monoxide, gasoline, asbestos, lead or low oxygen environments."
           
          Do you need nose/mouth protection against aerosols? Look no further. Cordova's NIOSH-approved valved particulate respirators are perfect for your next construction project. They feature two latex-free straps and an adjustable aluminum nose piece with a nose pad, providing a comfortable yet secure fit. The valve allows air to escape when exhaling. Grab a box today!
