Ecolution Micro-Pop Glass Popcorn Popper Review

My entire family is in love with this great popcorn popper for the microwave. I love it because it doesn't fill the air with the scent of burnt oil like cooking on the stove-top does, or the strong odors microwave popcorn bags do. DH loves it because the kernels pop...

Chloe and Cotton Woven Rope Basket Review

I love how stylish and versatile this "laundry basket" is! Close up, I can see that the woven "rope" is really lovely, woven with an intricate pattern, as a single rope winds throughout to create the entire basket. It's not really surprising yet still beautiful to...

Zinus Mid-Mod Pine Square Dining Table Review

Tasty Dutch Oven Review

I think that everyone needs a quality pot like this one. Mostly, I like it because it is quite large so we can cook enough food for the entire extended family, in one go. For example, we can make a large batch of pasta without strands of angel hair or spaghetti...

Review: PowerSmart PS76201A 36V Lithium-Ion Cordless Blower

Review: Zircon StudSensor i65 Electronic Stud Finder

One of the frustrations that comes from building your own home is it can be surprising when you realize you don't remember how you built this or that. Case in point: Hanging wall art when you can't find the stud underneath the drywall. I tried other stud finders only...

Conair GS38R Handheld Garment Steamer with Turbo Review

While we were engaged, DH promised me he wouldn't ask me to iron his clothes, seeing it as a menial task. But now, he's rubbing shoulders with the big wigs, so his clothing needs to look sharp. So, we were both relieved to get this wonderful clothing steamer. It uses...

TCL 30 Pint Dehumidifier Review

Nutiva Organic, Raw, Shelled Hempseed Review
