          Really cranks out the heat!
          Without the option to do a natural gas fire table, and with burn bans nearly constant in my county, a propane table was the only way to go. The Hampton Bay aluminum fire table in stone gray was very appealing.
          Right out the box, there is very little setup to do. Attaching the leveling feet, add the lava rock to the fire area, put the battery into the igniter and attach regulator hose. All in all, this takes between 5 to 10 minutes. Taking the time to ensure your propane hose is connected and leak free... then actually turning on the gas and igniting only takes another minute. Cleaning up all the packaging will most likely take the longest.
          I am pretty happy

          Without the option to do a natural gas fire table, and with burn bans nearly constant in my county, a propane table was the only way to go. The Hampton Bay aluminum fire table in stone gray was very appealing.

All in all, this takes between 5 to 10 minutes. Taking the time to ensure your propane hose is connected and leak free... then actually turning on the gas and igniting only takes another minute. Cleaning up all the packaging will most likely take the longest.
          I am pretty happy with the look of the fire table. The lid that covers the fire area looks nice, but it has no way of attaching and securing in place. However, the fact that it HAS a lid is a big deal, as the table can do double duty in the hot summers as a snack or appetizer table. However, the table does not seem very heavy. I do have some small concerns about wind, and may need to add some weight to the very empty inside of the table to keep it in place.
          It looks like concrete from a distance, but is actually made of sheet aluminum. The gauge on the aluminum is not the best, which only adds to my concerns with the wind.
          A small stand is included for a propane tank. There really isn't much to say about the stand: it's a black metal ring designed to prevent your propane tank from tipping over, and to keep it a safe (60") distance from the fire.
          Once the included regulator hose is attached to your tank, you can ignite. This may seem a little tricky at first, but is fairly simple. Open the valve on the tank, depress the igniter, depress the flow valve on the table. Once you have flame, let go of the igniter, and turn the flow valve as high as you can while still depressing it (this will be the 'Low' setting). Let go of the flow valve (the manual says to do so after 45 seconds, but I did not think this was necessary), and crank up the knob to enjoy some solid flames.
          The flow valve on my table appears to go past the 'Max' setting. It does stop eventually, but the table appears to be capable of 12-15 inch flames. I would not recommend this, as flames of this size can extend beyond the edge of the table. Stay back many feet for the first 20 minutes, and watch as the gas bar in the table goes from shiny chrome to rainbow effect as it heats up.

          securely holds and conceals a 20 lbs. propane gas tank. Its versatility can conveniently double as a side table as a perfect complement to the Hampton Bay Firepit table. Concrete finish. Color: STONE GREY COLOR.

          Not discrete, but looks great!
          I recently obtained a fire table and wanted something beyond the simple and small metal ring that came with the table for the propane tank. I'm happy to see that Hampton Bay thought about this already, and has this matching tank holder available. The stone gray color is great and does look very concrete like.
          However, its not concrete. It is made of sheet metal. Sure, it's thicker than HVAC ducting, but it still seems a bit flimsy. As there was nothing from the manufacturer in regards to what the product is made out of, I was a bit disappointed.

          Assembly is quick and easy. All the bolt holes have the nuts in place, so you only need a single screw drivers to get it all put together. Attaching the handle on the lid will most likely be the hardest part. A complaint here is attaching the actual tank holding ring. I found the ring was slightly smaller in dimension than the box itself, so it was very easy to over tighten the screws and bend/warp the box. This seems like extremely poor design.
          A bit downside is that it does not come with a protective weather cover. I know it seems a bit silly to cover the cover of the propane tank, but considering the matching fire tables in this color DO come with a cover, it seems like Hampton Bay dropped the ball on this one.
          Adding and remove the propane tank is very easy, though the thumbscrew to secure the thank is a little hard to reach.
          My one wish for this product is to be heavier. Without a propane tank, this thing just might blow away in a strong gust of wind.

          Nice thick and sturdy tabletop lantern. Accommodates a pillar candle or fill it with your choice of chunky decor.
          This tabletop lantern is a nice height, size and thickness. It is not flimsy in the least. A good weighted piece is especially important outdoors in the event of wind, though I find this works nicely indoors as well.
          It is steel underneath the gold paint. So, be mindful not to chip or scratch the paint. The paint felt a bit soft to me (not flaky at all) so it is certainly designed to be left outdoors for an extended period of time.
          The style ice nice and blends in well with any decor. It does not clash with my oil-rubbed-bronze light fixtures.

          Versatile, portable and bright - warm or cool diffused light suitable for tabletop photography.
          I work in illustration and sometimes need to take well lit photos of sketches and works in progress to show for clients. Using a scanner tends to create harsh contrast. This light is the perfect height to hover over a sketch book, providing excellent diffused light without any hard shadows. The light itself is not flat, but, so it makes a great omni-directional projection.
          I find this light works splendid for close-up product photography as well.

          Choose from warm or cool light. I find the warm light works great to emulate natural light. The cool setting is excellent when working with white media to eliminate shadows and dark area.
          It has several different configurations:
          1. Place it on a high up shelf and bend it so that the light hangs underneath. This is great if you need the workspace clear.
          2. Configure it as a tabletop desk lamp. This is what I like to use while illustrating by hand.
          3. Snap it together circularly so you can hook it over something and hang it. This turns the light into a push-on button.
          Overall, I am really impressed with the amount of features packed into this little light. It is everything I need for my art and photography, and it is also lightweight and portable. I envision bringing this on travel or camping.

          Having been searching for a seat to potty train my toddler on to get her used to the normal toilet, I found this Bemis 2 in 1 seat to be the perfect solution.
          At first glance, the seat appears to be a regular toilet seat. This is a huge plus, as I have seen other seats that do not look like a normal seat and I did not want anything like that. The child seat stays sandwiched between the lid and full-sized seat, meanings its out of sight and out of mind.

          Installation was a breeze. Call me naive though, but I have never installed a toilet seat that only required a wrench and not a screw driver. The STA-TITE mechanism that Bemis uses is a clever one, but not the easiest to install. There are two bolts, like any other seat, and they sit in non-slip rectangular washers. They have no cross or bar on their head, so forget about any tip of screw screwdriver. Use a wrench to tighten up the heavy duty plastic nuts on the underside. Here, I did find an awkward problem. As the seat as silent close hinges, they are very tight. I had to work the wrench quite a bit to get the hinges to bend and come flat against the toilet. And then, even when everything was tight, I realized I had to loosen one side back up because it was crooked. This was a bit of an annoying install process.
          However, cleaning the toilet will now be very easy. There are security flaps on the hinges, and if you pop these up and off, the entire seat slides right off the toilet, leaving the bolts and non-slip washers behind. Additionally, the silent close works very well. The seat closes pretty quickly, but makes no noise in doing so.
          Installing the kids seat is very simple. Open the lid, drop the kids seat into place with a snap and close the lid. That easy. There are magnets in the lid and kids seat so it always 'defaults' to being out of the way, but it takes very little force to separate the two and get things ready for the kid.

          It does stick to laminate and other poly surfaces, yes. It may rub off after some time depending on where it is located (consider it like a permanent marker).
