          "Turn my faucet on. Pour two cups."The Setra smart faucet with voice-activated technology dispenses measured amounts of water at your spoken command. Just say the words to turn the water on, fill containers to a preset level or dispense a specific quantity. In addition to voice control, this touchless faucet has a motion sensor that turns water on and off with a wave of your hand. The faucet works with the KOHLER Konnect app so you can monitor water usage and be notified of unusual flow. Color: Polished Chrome.

          There are a couple flaws that keep this faucet from being really great.
          The first is that steam and hot water trigger the faucet to go on and off. If you are washing dishes with hot water, the steam from the hot water will trigger the motion detection and turn your water off while you are still trying to use it. Likewise, if you are draining pasta into the sink, the steam from the pasta sets off the motion every time and the faucet has blasted my freshly cooked pasta with cold water. That certainly isn't great.
          The second issue is that the voice commands won't let you dispense partial cups. You can't do 3/4 of a cup or a cup and a half. If your water pressure is a bit weak, the Read More

Likewise, if you are draining pasta into the sink, the steam from the pasta sets off the motion every time and the faucet has blasted my freshly cooked pasta with cold water. That certainly isn't great.
          The second issue is that the voice commands won't let you dispense partial cups. You can't do 3/4 of a cup or a cup and a half. If your water pressure is a bit weak, the measurements won't be very accurate either. My faucet dispenses slightly less than a cup when I ask it for 1 cup. I couldn't find an easy command to get the faucet to work either. It got it to work, but it became a bit wordy. I would have to say, "Alexa, ask Kohler to dispense one cup" or "Alexa, ask Kohler to turn on Kitchen Faucet." The integration with Alexa wasn't 100%. You would have to specify "Kohler" for it to work.
          The installation is definitely something you can DIY, but it is much more involved than the standard faucet installation. The wiring you need to do is simple and is similar to plugging computer power supply connections into a motherboard.
          Other than the above two issues, the faucet works well and as intended. Read Less
          Pros: Looks Great, Lots of Features
          Cons: steam triggers the faucet to come on and off, cannot dispense partial cups with voice

          This towel bar unfortunately is not perfect. The matte black color is sleek and stylish, however the design is marred with gray plastic parts. The part that connects the rod to brackets is a gray plastic. It sticks out like a sore thumb. I included a picture of the area that I am speaking of. It was pretty disappointing.
          Otherwise, I enjoy the modern look of the towel bar. I like how the rod is a rectangle rather than tube shaped. The matte black color is perfect for a modern bathroom.
          Pros: Nice Design, Stylish
          Cons: gray plastic piece is tacky

          No, I do not recommend this product.
          At this time, I unfortunately cannot recommend this product. If i ever get the washer working, or a replacement, I'll update the review.
          I have had nothing but problems with the washer. On the quick wash setting, the washer was extremely loud to the point I could hear it from 2 floors up.
          I did a load of laundry on the bulky setting, the washer began making a loud ratcheting noise and the agitator wasn't moving properly. I included a video of the sound that it made. There was also the feint smell of burning. I called for service and basically every part of the washer needs to be replaced. Mainly the transmission. However, the transmission part is not available and there is a very long Read More

          My biggest concern for the washer is its reliability. The washer is supposed to "sense" how much laundry is in the tub and fill the water to the correct amount. With all the rest of the problems that I've had, I just don't know about this washer. Read Less

          I used 4 different colors of this product to do a multi-colored accent wall. The four colors that I used in my project were Charred Wood, Barn Board Gray, Coastal Ivory, and Reclaimed Brown.
          Overall the Barn Board Gray boards were all usable. I did however have significant warping problems with the Charred Wood color so keep that in mind if you are using multiple colors. This gray color was definitely my favorite of the 4 as it had a lot of color variation just on its own. It is also a very neutral color that would do with nearly everything. The gray color boards did have much more knots in the wood than the other varieties though.

          There are some chipped edges. I included a picture of the edges. The flaws are much more noticeable on darker colors.
          You can either make a clean cut on the edge to get rid of the chips or use some touch up paint. The "finished side" of this product is smooth. The back of the product is just more rough. You can use either side that you wish. The rough side is a darker gray color.
          What I really like about the product is that the boards are very light weight. I previously did a similar accent wall with laminate and laminate is significantly heavier and much harder to install on a wall. This light weight product could really be installed by anyone without much problem. Read Less
