          This is a decent headboard for many situations, all but those times you are looking for a very thick meaty headboard. This is a thinner headboard, and most people will be okay with this, but given the price point I would not really expect more than this.
          The quality of the wood seems decent enough, it was easy enough to install, and other than the very large box it was not hard to handle - the box weight is marked 38lbs and that feels about right given the hardware, box, etc.
          As for the look, it gives a nice airy look without feeling like you are trapped behind a solid headboard. I don't like the feeling that the headboard is the wall, and would prefer the air flow and open feeling Read More

          The best part about doing your shopping at Home Depot is the awesome return policy and should you find this isn't for you, you can simply return it to your local Home Depot store and look for something else. My experience with Home Depot is that what they show you is realistically what you get, so if you like the design, style, and size, it will not disappoint. I'm happy with it, the only thing is that I wish it was just a bit thicker, but I say that cautiously because most people don't want to waste valuable space with something as mundane as a headboard.

          The simple design of this platform bed will provide ample support for your mattress. Constructed with a solid pine wood frame and slats to offer supreme durability. The wooden legs, crafted with a turned detail in a classic style. Platform bed can be used with or without a box spring.

          This is a very decent bed frame for the money. It does exactly what it is supposed to do, isn't difficult to assemble, came packaged well in the box (good thing, box was damaged in transit but no damage done). It weighs like 60+ pounds and it is a large box, so either have a hand cart to bring it in or get a helper to help you get it in the house.
          The wood has a great smell (pine) and appears to be decent wood vs. pressboard. I was happy to see it rated at 650lbs, because between the weight of the mattress, with my wife and I, big dogs, etc. we are pushing beyond what probably most people will use with this. No issues. Time will tell if it holds up long term, but so far, it is perfect! Read More

          I would recommend a box spring with this IF you are using a foam mattress. I've been told by bedding guys (maybe trying to sell box springs) that for foam mattresses, you should have a box spring and I'm heeding that advice. My other bed has a full flat platform that is safe for foam mattresses, so this is a new idea, but nothing I'm concerned about - I like the height a box spring provides anyway.
          You won't be disappointed with this I'm sure, I'm not. Great look, great frame, and seems very decently constructed. Read Less

          I'm going to be buying many more of these, this is the most incredible invention in flashlights for quite some time!
          Why is this such a big hit with me? Well, a road flare, traditional or battery operated, only warns drivers to slow down, but provides no directed light at the broken down car for example, it simply lights up to warn of danger. So, with this, you can put this in the road, point the light towards the car, with the red flashing LED's pointed towards traffic coming at you, and you are showing people what to slow down for. Amazing invention!
          Now, couple this with a safety vest (reflective white strips, fluro green) and seeing what is broken down, I think you'll see that Read More

Amazing invention!
          Now, couple this with a safety vest (reflective white strips, fluro green) and seeing what is broken down, I think you'll see that this provides a much better outcome than just a road flare. Get the vest on, set these up in the road, and stand out of the way (behind a guard rail if possible) andI think it will be so much safer.
          The light is flexible, and if not broken down or on the scene of a "just happened" accident, you can use it for many other things. Playing around with it, I was able to find about 10 things I would have used it for. Working on my car with the hood up, use the magnets to hold it in place, bend the light to where I want it to go. Accident scenes. Broken down cars. Dark closet at home that has no light. Under cabinets when looking for something and it is dark. Power outages, to fill the room with light (up towards ceiling, to light a path, etc.). Can put it on the front stoop to light the step if company comes over (hard to see even with porch light on). Use it to alert cars when walking the dogs while lighting them up and light for me to see where I'm going, can put on ground while cleaning up after dog. So many uses.
          But I'll be putting probably 3 of these in each car to act as flares and to be able to alert traffic of the concern AND be able to point light toward the concern to alleviate a potential accident.
          There are different options to use this too, like a super bright flashlight, a duller mode flashlight, a bright flashlight with the red warning blinking led's on, and a mode to just have the red blinking LED's on.
          If there is a negative with this it is that the batteries don't seem to be a brand/type that I'd count on for long lasting storage in the car. I will be buying the units, and also lithium batteries to put in each (they take 3 AA batteries per unit), so they can hopefully last for years without draining for when it is really needed.
          I'll also have a couple of these around the house - the flexibility of bending the unit to point the light where you need it, coupled with the magnets to hold it to metal objects, makes the need to have someone hold the light for you while doing a project a non-issue. You can point it where you need it to be. And it stays until you move it to another position, or finish the project. 200 lumens is the rating, but spread out over multiple led's provides what appears to be well more than 200 lumens. I didn't test it against a light meter, but my take on this is that a single beam of 200 lumens is sometimes overpowering when pointing directly at something when you really need the light spread out to see more area, and this does that.
          You won't be disappointed with this, based on my initial review. I can only hope they hold up as well as it appears they will - the flex part of this didn't weaken as I moved it around and around and around and around - you get the idea. It feels the same flex as it did when I got it out of the box. Read Less
          Pros: All In One, Durable, Easy to Use, Good Size & Weight, Light Weight, flashlight and emergency blinker in one unit, flexible and able to be pointed where light is nee, unique and helps to prevent accidents on the road, eliminates need for someone to hold the light

          This is a purpose built tool for those working as electric utility linemen.
          You attach this at the end of the hot stick, put your disconnect on the other end, and basically is an extension of the hot stick, with a very very very bright flashlight to help guide the hook end into the disconnect to allow the switchover.
          You don't realize how bright 350 lumens is until you are working an outage and have to make the switch in the dark. This really works great.
          It comes with two batteries, the charger, and the tool. An excellent tool and an excellent value. When it is dark, holding a flashlight in one hand and trying to get into the disconnect at the same time, is not an easy task. Read More

          Pros know that cleaning walls and painted surfaces requires a delicate touch. This professional grade wipe is pre-moistened with a specialized formulation that lifts scuffs and stains without damaging finishes or leaving a residue. Just Pull from canister and wipe down the surface gently. Allow to dry.

          Our big dog is always sitting near the front door and lays against the wall. Often we have to clean the wall but with the bucket, water and soap mixture, etc. it doesn’t get done as often as it should. These wipes are safe on the wall, are easy, and convenient. It’ll be so much easier having these to touch up and keep it clean. Zep is a name I trust and you should too, great products and a great value.
          Pros: Easy to Use, works great, removes dirt

          Answer: 
          You only have to use convection if you want to, it isn't required.
          The lower oven is the only one that does convection anyway, the top one does not. Think of the top one as a pizza oven, or for french fries, or even a pie. I've cooked chicken breasts in the top one, in a shallow pan to keep the food in the middle of the top oven.

          The bottom oven is very large, imagine you are loosing the warming drawer on a traditional single oven (which we all just stored baking pans in anyway) so it is like having a full sized oven on the bottom and a smaller oven on top. Just no warming/storage drawer. You could cook a large turkey in the lower oven.
          Both ovens work great at different temperatures and seem to cook quicker than our single oven ever did.
          The only thing to know, if you are using both ovens, and all 4 burners, you might blow your breaker as I did....we have standard electrical 200 amp service and the 4 burners running with both ovens running, was too much for our "standard" breaker. 3 burners and both ovens, no problem. I mention this because if you are asking about how large a turkey will fit, you may be cooking large meals and if so, you might be using all of this capacity at the same time and that could be an issue as it was for me.
