          This is a great machine if you need to crank out enough dogs for a group or crowd without taking all day. I have an older dogger I’ve had for 20 years that only does 6 dogs at a time and only has 2 temp settings. It takes about 20 minutes to cook dogs well done. It still works fine but you can’t do dogs fast enough for more than 2 or 3 people. It’s just too slow. This one will do the 18 before my old one gets warmed up good. On a setting of only 3 it was way faster than my old one was on high. It really cranks them out. I’m a hot dog cooking fiend now. I like the ability to set the front and back to different settings so you can cook fast then just keep warm. It does take up some real estate Read More
          This is a great machine if you need to crank out enough dogs for a group or crowd without taking all day.

I like the ability to set the front and back to different settings so you can cook fast then just keep warm. It does take up some real estate but fortunately I have a good place to store it when not in use. This will be just the thing for all kinds of gatherings like church gatherings, reunions and family dinners (I have a large family), or just whatever. Obviously it is at home in a commercial environment though I think if you were using it commercially you’d probably want the one with the bun warmer as well (or you could use a separate bun warmer.) I tried using it without the glass cover installed (yes it is glass not plastic) but without the cover there is a little popping of grease onto the counter behind it. So I’d recommend either using the cover or covering the area with something to catch the small bit of spatter from the dogs. The cover is easy to assemble but it is not something that just snaps on and off. It is screwed on. Although removing it is pretty simple and easy. Read Less
          Pros: Easy to Clean, Lots of Features, cooks many dogs fast, simple assembly
          Cons: takes up a lot of space (as expected)

          This is a very nice set. I thought it interesting that one reviewer knocked off for them being heavy. I noticed how heavy they were also before I even opened the box and mentioned to my wife how heavy they were. But I saw that as a plus. In this day and age where it seems like everything is made increasingly lighter and thinner I’m always happy when on rare occasions I run across something that is still made sturdy. So that they are heavy is a plus to me. I guess it depends on your perspective. The finish on these is great and the colors bright and well executed.

The artwork is very well done and not something that looks garish or amateurish. I can’t find a single negative about them unless it is that they are on the pricey side. But anything of quality costs more these days (when you can even find good quality in an item which you cannot always do). And these are definitely great quality dishes. I don’t think the price is out of order for the quality. We both really like them and have left them out for a bit and have got several compliments on them already. We may just leave them out since we are about to start decorating for Christmas this weekend (yes, the weekend of October 12th). We start early on Christmas and skip decorating for Halloween and Thanksgiving. So these fit well with our scheme. We love Christmas. They were packed very well and everything was perfectly intact so I found zero defects of any kind. Read Less
          Pros: High Quality, Looks Great, Nice Design, Sturdy, Stylish, well done artwork

          This mirror was kind of a last minute purchase but worked out perfect. We just had a bathroom remodel done and already had a vanity mirror on hand that matched well but it turned out to be just a little too large once everything else was up and we went to mount it on hte last day of trhe remodel. So I did some quick shopping on HD and had this one in hand within a few days. The size is perfect and it matches our fixtures and tile perfectly. The build quality was very good.

          This mirror was kind of a last minute purchase but worked out perfect.

So I did some quick shopping on HD and had this one in hand within a few days. The size is perfect and it matches our fixtures and tile perfectly. The build quality was very good. It is heavy but I already had a mount driven into a stud through a hole drilled in the tile. It comes with some well done steel cable hangers (for either orientation) already in place. But due to the fact that I already had a screw positioned in my tile I had to cut that off and redo it. But that was a 5 minute job since I already had some stainless 1/16 cable, a swaging tool and some hardware on hand. I had it hung in no time. If I had not already had my mount positioned I would have just used the hangers that came on it. They were the same hevay stuff I used (1/16th stranded stainless steel cable). I like that this is made for use in a vanity. We put a much lighter mirror up for the few days while we waited on it and it looked good but this looks as good or better and I'm not afraid of the mounts coming loose on it like I was the cheap hobby store mirror. This thing is solidly built. It has just a tinge of gold accents and that makes it blend well with our bronze fixtures which have the same thing. You can't really see that detail in my pictures but it matched great. I'd buy this again in a hearbeat. Read Less

          This is a nice solid well built jacket with the build quality you would expect from Milwaukee. I personally like the colors and the look. I normally wear an XL and the XL fits me perfectly. So the sizes run true to what you normally see. I like the variety of pockets. The use of Velcro instead of snaps just makes things easier to get on and off quick especially if you are wearing gloves. The hood is a rather generous size and pretty much comes down over my face if I’m not wearing a hat where the bill of the hat will hold it out of my face. But I typically wear a hat when I’m wearing a raincoat anyway just for the purpose of keeping the hood out of my face. So that does not bother me. I’d Read More

With an air pressure gauge clearly visible on the back, you will always know exactly how much pressure is in your tire. Included below the carrying handle is an integrated ultra-bright flashlight to ensure that you have light no matter what situation you find yourself in.

          This is a pretty versatile little unit. I have a similar unit I got specifically to power my GPS guided telescope when I don’t have A/C available for it. (the drive unit and dew shield both run off 12V power) This will do everything the Celestron will and a good deal more like jump start a car or air up a tire. This also has a built in inverter which could be very handy for powering things like the laptop I use for astrophotography.

The light one this one is bright but not like the spotlight on the Celestron. But that light on the Celestron drains the battery fast too. But to be honest the last thing you want on when you are viewing the sky is a really bright spot light. Both units do their job well. This one just does more jobs. So price wise this compares very favorably with the power tank while giving you more for the money by taking on more tasks. So if you want something for emergencies to jump off a car or air up a tire or just want a portable way to power your electronics this thing has all those bases covered. It’s a pretty neat device.

          Does it come in other sizes ? I've been using the 12 inch one for about 6 months now and am very happy with the way it cooks and how well it is holding up to practically daily use. I would not mind buying a couple smaller ones as well like say a 10 inch and an 8 inch.

          I don't really have much of a question just an amusing observation to pass along and since you can't modify reviews here it is.
          I put this up a week ago and it is indeed really nice - large, solid, well finished and easy to open and close. Piece of cake to mount.
          Today I had a post-it note left in the box with the days mail from the mail carrier lady. It said she loves this box !
          It was kind of funny to see and I'm glad she likes it too. Obviously she appreciates a smooth opening and closing box.
          I guess if you have to open and close them all day that would not go unnoticed. some certainly require more effort.

          To make this a question and thus kosher to put here I ask the populace...
          Has anyone else had a compliment from the mail carrier ?
          I'm just curious.

The Plymouth is finished in a rich oil rubbed bronze that appears smooth and glossy under the illuminated shade. The eye-catching sculpted silhouettes are only interrupted by the alluring charm of a genuine polished marble sphere. The perfect transitional accent, the Plymouth will be the perfect finishing touch in your classic-contemporary home.
