          Delivery:
          I received an email out the delivery. The delivery said it was for a Natural Gas stove and I was going to convert the stove to LP with the supplied conversion kit. I called the Home Depot and was informed that the delivery company couldn’t install an LP stove since they weren’t licensed. So at least in Iowa the delivery companies can’t install an LP stove because it has to be installed by a licensed plumber. The delivery company will put your new stove wherever you want it but won’t hook up the gas line. They will also haul away your old stove if needed. They also left me a gas line hose kit. The LP conversion kit takes about an hour to install and comes with adequate directions.

          The stove:
          My wife says the oven heats up nearly twice as fast as our old electric oven.
          The flame on a couple of the burner was really strange and uneven. The black caps MUST be seated correctly for the flame to function as designed
          The oven comes with one rack that has a slide out extension. That slide out function is super nice because you don’t have to reach all the way into the over to lift something out.
          At 6.3 cubic feet the oven is super big
          The LSG4515ST model comes with an oven meat probe. I’m looking forward to using that feature in the future.
          The stove comes with a griddle that goes on the center burner. The griddle can be removed if not needed.
          WiFi:
          Your router has to be 2.4 GHz and can’t be a 5 GHz or a dual router that switches back and forth
          Connecting the stove to your home network and the app is super easy.
          With the app you can preheat your oven, check the temperature, see how much time is remaining.
          You can check the energy efficiency of the cleaning feature.
          An LG customer support rep can remote into your stove during a diagnostic session.
          All being said this is a super nice stove. Read Less
          Pros: Easy to Clean, Looks Great, Lots of Features
          Cons: delivery company won't install and lp stove, wifi can only be run off a 2.4 ghz router

          You can’t beat this 78 inch Aluminum level by Empire. I feel the magnet has more than enough power to hold the level up. I really like the extra length. I have several 48 inch levels and sometimes a shorter level just isn't accurate enough. The extra length is also nice when using the level as a straight edge say cutting sheetrock. If you have been looking for a 6 foot plus level this is a great value with good quality for the money. The bubbles are a good size and are easy to see even from a few feet away. Finally, this level is made in the USA.
          Pros: Accurate, Good Size & Weight, Light Weight

          This Milwaukee 48 inch pipe wrench is built for a lifetime of use. I have no doubt this wrench will be passed on to my children. The photo on the HD website doesn’t depict how large this thing is. It weighs 35 pounds and has a limited lifetime warranty. If you have shopped other brands for a 48 inch pipe wrench you know that this Milwaukee is a good valve especially for the quality. I also like the fact that the jaw has a scale on it so you know when you are close to the size of pipe you are working on. For a licensed plumber this is a must have. The jaws open to 6 inches. Homedepot.com also has this Milwaukee pipe wrench in 36 inches (5 inch jaw) and 60 inches (8 inch jaw).

          The Dyna-Glo TT30000M Double Burner Tank Top Heater generates radiant heat that warms people and objects rather than the air. It is a portable heating solution that is perfect for indoor (with proper ventilation) and outdoor construction use. Rated at 9,000 15,000-BTUs, the TT30000M heats up to a 25 foot radius for a period of 14 to 48-hours depending on the number of burners lit and the BTU level selected. The TT30000M does not require electricity and it is mounted directly to a standard 20-pound liquid propane (LP) tank (not included). The TT30000M has a run time up to 48 hours on one burner and up to 24 hours on both burners. Assembly is easy as a hand wheel is included to connect the P.O.L. tank connection to a standard 20-pound tank. This tank top heater has high, medium and low variable BTU settings, steel heat reflectors and the burner heads swivel to direct the heat and maximize comfort control. Safety features include a safety shut-off valve to stop gas flow if flame is extinguished and 2 mercury-free tip over switches that stop gas flow if tipped. Dyna-Glos double-mesh burner design provides safe, reliable heat, even in windy conditions. This product is CSA certified, meaning it has been thoroughly tested and certified and meets all applicable standards that cover important safety and quality requirements.

          This Double Burner 30,000 BTU radiant heater is a great heating solution at a reasonable price. The heater mounts to the top of a 20 pound LP tank using a supplied bracket. The heater can be run from 9,000 to 30,000 BTU. This heater can be used outdoor or indoors. If you are using it indoors don’t leave it unattended, keep it away from flammable objects, and make sure the room is ventilated properly. The day after I got this heater we got 6 inches of snow. I was able to melt off the snow blower in very little time once I was finished. Great inexpensive heating solution.
          Pros: Good Size & Weight, inexpensive solution
          Cons: owners manual if for several different models

          I got this Legends damask stripe goose down queen blanket in ivory for the spare bedroom bed. I figured since it is down filled that it would be a good blanket for all seasons. It is light weight but because of the down it is actually warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Before we put it on the spare bed I had it in the living room on the couch. It isn't a lounging blanket because it isn't cozy or soft. I did notice that after a couple of days there were a few feather pieces on the couch so the blanket will lose feathers. Finally, the blanket is dry clean only.
          Pros: year around use
          Cons: losing feathers, not soft, not cozy
