          Product: Kas Rugs Manor Ivory Morrison 3 ft. x 5 ft. Traditional Area Rug/Country of Origin: Turkey/////
          I was extremely disappointed in this item. It's made from polypropylene (which is expected given the price point), it's fairly thin and the pattern is literally blurry. I'm especially surprised at the poor quality given that this product is made in Turkey; a country intimately familiar with rugs of this nature. I have to advise against purchasing this product.
          Cons: blurry pattern, quality issues

          My experience with Grohe products to date has impressed me with their quality and design. This shower bar is no exception. It's sturdy metal construction and substantial mounting hardware allow for a shower bar that can essentially double as a safety rail (my opinion only and not that of the manufacturer). It can be mounted in any manner that the buyer would like; horizontal, vertical or at an angle. I prefer a vertical mount which allows me to adjust the height of the wand. The wandholder swivels and travels the length of the bar. A bar like this is a must for those who use wands instead of Read More

          This light fixture is currently installed in my hallway and it's almost unbelievable how much better the hallway looks as a result. This fixture is stylish, bright and fairly easy to install. It holds 4 bulbs at up to 40 watts each. That means it would easily power four 100 watt equivalent LED bulbs as they average about 12 actual watts each. I'm guessing that most folks wouldn't need the equivalent of 400 watts from one light fixture, but the potential's certainly there.

          Cook all your family's favorites at once and clean up quick with a 5-burner cooktop designed to make the most of your mealtime routine. Two FlexHeat dual radiant elements give you more flexibility and the Warm Zone element keeps food warm while you're finishing the rest of the meal. Then, easily wipe messes off the ceramic glass surface.

          I have one word for this cooktop; WOW! I acquired this unit for my kitchen remodel and am delighted with it. The 36" size is far more convenient than 30" models and it's got five burners. No more cramming pots onto a 30", 4-burner cooktop while constantly looking for more room (that doesn't exist) and the two dual-element burners couldn't be more convenient. The control knobs are removable which makes cleanup so much more pleasant than it could be. The knobs can actually be thrown into the dishwasher if desired. I can't say Read More

          The DEWALT DWMT70776 3/8 in. Drive Air Ratchet is extremely comfortable to use with its rubber cushion grip. The product has a maximum torque of 65 ft./lb. which helps free stubborn bolts. Its Touch Control Trigger allows users to apply the necessary amount of power in a safe and effective manner.

          The Dewalt DWMT70776 pneumatic ratchet is a very adequate tool for home DIY use. I'm not sure that it would hold up well to commercial/professional use. It can exert up to 75 ft. lbs. of torque, operates at 90 psi and is made mostly of metal. It's slightly weighty, but has a soft, ergonomic grip. I find the tool very comfortable to use and it's served me well to date. The reason that I'm a bit skeptical of its suitability for professional use is due to its average amount of torque, slightly bulky shape and the lack of resistance to the sudden swing that is well known to bust knuckles when working in tight spaces.

          ETi's 40″ LED Shop Light is designed to replace your traditional fluorescent fixture. This is an energy-efficient, long-lasting lighting fixture used to illuminate typical applications such as a tabletop, utility room or workbench. With the adoption of LED technology, the performance exceeds that of fluorescent lamps, making LED versions of a shop light a technical no-brainer. Lightweight, height adjustable, easy to install and there is no need to replace any bulbs for up to 50,000 hours of continuous use. The overall benefits of LED lights vs fluorescent lights hold true for shop lights - longer lifetimes, lower electrical consumption, no mercury. Not Dimmable - 5 Year Warranty

It features a striking three light candelabra set of staggered height perfect for illuminating entryways with elegance.
