Review - KidKraft Table and Chair Set



I purchased this table and chair set for my 3 year old and 5 year old daughters last Christmas.  To be honest, I didn't expect too much when I purchased it, as the price was so low compared with other leading brands. But when the package arrived and the assembly was done, I was really thrilled.

Cuisinart GR-4N 5-in-1 Griddler - A Space Saver for Small Kitchens


I was hesitant to purchase this grill because I feared it might not accomplish what I desired. I wanted a "real" panini grill that would cook sandwiches like the restaurants, without the expense or space required for a commercial grill costing five or six times as much. To my surprise, the griddler does the job.

An Easy Organizer: Sterilite 4-Shelf Utility Cabinet with Putty Handles 01428501


I was looking for an inexpensive way to store my canned goods and stuff, as I have limited cupboard space in my kitchen. Most of these types of affordable cabinets are made of particle wood. They are heavy, and the assembly process is complicated. Then I found this Sterilite plastic cabinet online.  Due to the great reviews, i purchased one to give it a try.

Make Healthy Snacks with Nesco 600-Watt Food Dehydrator


My kids have a restless reaction to foods that contain red dye 40.  We figured we could entertain their cravings by making homemade fruit leathers. The ability to make jerky was a bonus for me. I ordered another brand that I thought was going to do the job, but once it arrived I found the construction to be subpar and it was passive, requiring rotation of the trays. I immediately returned it and purchased Nesco unit instead.

Ninja Master Prep Blender QB900B


I bought this blender as I was about to go on a diet that required a lot of smoothie making. My sister has been using Ninja for over 3 years and she highly recommended it to me. I checked online and was surprised to see that this machine was listed as a "best Buy" in Consumer Reports, so I decided to give it a try.

Review - Hoover SteamVac Carpet Cleaner with Clean Surge, F5914900


I Purchased this product due to my friends strong recommendation. So far the steam-vac has been used for three times, and I have to say it is really a great buy.

This machine requires partial assembly. Instructions are easy to follow with large diagrams, so you can literally match up the parts to the installation sequence of the few items needing to be addressed. I got it together in 10 minutes and was able to clean my carpets immediately.
