Paderno World Cuisine 7-1/2-Inch Long Composite Meatball Tong
Paderno World Cuisine 7-1/2-Inch Long Composite Meatball Tong
Price: $20.08

2.0 out of 5 stars Very poor construction and a dissapointment, July 17, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is very flimsy and does not have the strength to form good meatball, though they are not spherical shaped, unless the meat is very soft such as adding extra water or milk to it. It's easier and faster to do it by hand. Don't waste your money on this. Too bad I ordered it and did not use it until the 30 day return window had closed.

3.0 out of 5 stars An OK gadget that shows some promise but still needs some work., June 20, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Amazon Echo (Electronics)
Echo has some promise, but even simple things like trying to add multiple items to your shopping list do not work. For example, "Add eggs and Cheese to my shopping list" adds and item called 'eggs and cheese'. You also need the Echo App to delete your shopping list.

Echo team not very receptive to suggestions at least mine; I have asked twice for the ability to stream Bluetooth from the Echo to much better Bluetooth sound devices in my home, as well as a way to re-order the shopping list in the Echo App to make it follow the aisles in the store. Neither of these have been implemented.

It can't do something simple like "Googe 'subject or question'". It spuriously activates when there is no sound present that is even remotely the wake keyword.

I do enjoy using it to play music if I am cooking, have it do some math when working with recipes, etc. As I said it certainly has promise. It's also handy to ask about the weather. The volume levels on the news briefing are different for each source which is annoying. More home automation systems need to added to its repertoire as well. Would likely have rated it a 2.5 if Amazon's rating system allowed this.

2.0 out of 5 stars Good idea, nasty taste, April 29, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I had high hopes for these but alas was quite disappointed, they taste nothing like the bottled diet raspberry tea and they have an unpleasant aftertaste to boot. Would not order these again.

2.0 out of 5 stars Worked fine for a couple of months before having issues, March 24, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Worked fine for the first couple of months, now it has to be reset every few days or devices to it disconnect and then reconnect repeatedly. Borrowed another USB 3.0 hub of another brand from a friend which fixed the issue, then reconnected the Amazon hub and it started all over again.

The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct [Online Game Code]
The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct [Online Game Code]

1.0 out of 5 stars SO many bugs and other issues that even at this low cost it's just not worth it, May 28, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I am a huge Walking Dead Fan. When this game came out in early 2013 I wanted it badly, but the $49.95 price tag was too high considering how many bugs people were reporting, so I held off. Going through The Walking Dead withdrawal after the season finale earlier this year kept getting worse so I searched online and was very pleased to find a Steam activation code on Amazon for $12.50, so I bought it. Great Deal from Amazon!

You would think that the creator of this trainwreck after having had over a year with the game out would have been able to fix the bugs that were reported over a year ago! They have not. When running the game in full screen mode certain layers of the graphics 'float' and become disconnected and can even be seen inside a building, such as strips of the grass and plants 'floating' in front of the brick wall inside a room! When switching to windowed mode this goes away but the window is bigger than the screen setting so some of the screen is lost on the right. And another big issue for me is the game does not save itself.

Add washed out colors when you try to adjust the brightness setting. sub-par graphics, repetitive gameplay that quickly becomes boring, and you've got a real loser here. Sadly I thought the coolest thing was the opening credits with the music and filmography of the TV show being incorporated into the game.

How sad is it that they obviously wanted to cash in on the popular Walk Dead franchise instead of making a quality product.

2.0 out of 5 stars Delay in opening caused it not to be returnable, May 28, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Sadly after this arrived I did not get around to opening until over 30 days had gone by and I was dismayed that the glass inside was broken. It's a very nice frame, I'm going to have to see if I can find some replacement glass for it.

Verified Purchase(What's this?)
All three flavors are excellent, only complaint is the cost which is pretty high for three 8 ounce jars of mustard.
