5.0 out of 5 stars One Everywhere It's Needed, July 17, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
These are inexpensive enough that I can keep one in the kitchen for re-sizing recipes and one in my desk. I bought two.

Far better than a glass jar for making a small quantity of home made salad dressing.

5.0 out of 5 stars This Really Works, July 17, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I was told that "vintage" salad keepers worked because they were vented and had a well at the bottom to collect liquid. I bought this because it has both those features. Before, bagged salad was slimy and inedible after three days. With this, bagged salad bought Saturday morning is still good on Thursday evening. (Iceberg lettuce is beginning to be a little rusty, but it's crisp and not slimy.)

The only think I might have done differently is buy the larger size. However this one will hold all but one large serving from a salad bag, so it may actually be about right.

I should mention that the top and bottom covers are NOT dishwasher-safe. They'll warp.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Inexpensive Holder that Does What Needs to be Donw, April 27, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is inexpensive, but not cheap-looking. The color is a little more toward orange than the picture, but not objectionably so. Looks good on my desk.

5.0 out of 5 stars This one works!, April 27, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The cheap "bulge in the cable" converters do not work reliably; they're a couple of resistors and a capacitor. (I know this because I took a non-working one apart.) This adapter includes an integrated circuit that correctly converts the signals fropm a PS/2 keyboard to those required by the USB interface. You will probably want a 6in USB 2.0 Extension Adapter Cable A to A - M/F as this adapter may be too fat to plug directly into a USB jack.

I've pounded out a master's thesis, a doctoral dissertation, and everything in between on my IBM Model M keyboard. I really didn't want to give it up when I got a new computer with no PS/2 connector. Thanks to this adapter, I don't have to!

5.0 out of 5 stars Interestingly Weird, April 2, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The premise of this book is a little weird, but it's well-written and an interesting read. I enjoyed it during a cross-country airplane trip.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good for Baking, Prevents Fruits from Browning, April 2, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
About 1/8 teaspoon in any yeast bread recipe improves the action of the yeast. A teaspoon in a large bowl of water will prevent apples or other fruit from browning. When I'm baking an apple pie, I peel apples and cut them directly into the bowl of water and ascorbic acid. When they're all peeled, I dry them with a salad spinner and assemble them into the pie. They don't brown. The same treatment will keep apple slices packed in baggies for lunch from browning.

5.0 out of 5 stars Non-Stick Really Works, April 2, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I've now bought two of these. I've had the first one for several months. Because the label says it's dishwasher safe, that's what I've been doing. The non-stick coating really works, and repeated washing in the dishwasher hasn't caused any decrease in the non-stickiness. Next time I get a few bucks ahead, I'm getting the 12" model.
{time passes}
Today I put this to the acid test with a cheese omelet. Neither egg nor cheese stuck to the pan. A little warm, soapy water and a soft sponge was all it took to clean up. I think I'll probably stop putting these in the dishwasher, not because I'm worries about the coating, but because it isn't necessary.

1.0 out of 5 stars Will Not Fit on Modern Fixtures, January 11, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I returned this because it would not fit in a modern (2009) recessed downlight fixture. It might be a great bulb; I never got to see. Measure before you buy.
