4.0 out of 5 stars Works in Toyota Prius Remote, February 13, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
When the battery dies in your Toyota Prius remote/key, you can easily replace it with these Energizer CR1632 batteries, saving a lot of money vs. going to the dealer.

The batteries come in easy to open, easy to store packaging.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must-have for home workshops, bonus: clips keep it secure, February 8, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Before moving my drills to my workshop pegboard, they were always sitting on flat surfaces (work-bench, washing, machine, etc.), "between projects."

The carrying cases that come with drills are great for transportation but are inconvenient for short term storage. As a result, drills end up collecting on any flat surface they can find (and infuriating spouses).

These simple, sturdy, effective hooks mount to any pegboard (where they are held in place by plastic retaining clips), placing your drill in immediate reach without having to retrieve it from a plastic case on a shelf.

I bought two and my work-space instantly looks cleaner and works more effectively.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fast, even heating; amazing nonstick surface; great value, February 8, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
If you're not picky about appearances (or if, like me, you prefer the industrial/utilitarian look), the Master Chef 2 (MC2) line by All Clad provides great value.

With this pan, I was able to buy a fast- and even-heating pan with an amazing nonstick surface (both for cooking and cleaning) for ~$50 less than All Clad's other lines.

This pan is a perfect "every day" pan; perhaps the only one you will need. Mine lives on the stove-top because I use it every single meal.


Magnetic Ironing Mat

3.0 out of 5 stars Measure before ordering: far smaller than photo suggests, February 7, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Magnetic Ironing Mat (Kitchen)
I can hardly complain about this item given its price -- very reasonable, but here are some thoughts:

--The magnets, while strong, are small and only near the corners. The mat will slip around during ironing.
--The washing machines in the product photos must be apartment sized or compact; this mat is way smaller on my standard-sized washing machine (doesn't cover the whole top, let alone drape over the side).

For $10, this is a neat solution; in my case we were just hoping to cover the top of our washing machine and add some padding for baskets that get thrown on top -- I'm sure it will work.

But if you need a real ironing solution, make sure you measure your machine, and consider getting something a little more substantial or with more powerful magnets.

4.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for picnics and patios, though not dishwasher safe, February 6, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
These simple champagne flutes are perfect for enjoying bubbly on the patio or at a picnic. The little thumb groove adds a nice design element, as well as offering a more secure grip (especially if you have larger hands).

One gripe: they are not advertised as dishwasher friendly so I'm not risking it.

Cheers!

4.0 out of 5 stars Works best with 1.5 cups rice or less, January 28, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Very well-designed, straightforward rice cooker that does a great job of both brown and white rice. It touts steaming abilities (ie veggies) but I haven't tried this functionality. I especially appreciate the very compact design -- it takes up far less room than rice makers with similar capacities.

One note: if you add more than 4 cups of water (2 cups of rice), the steam vent will splatter and make a mess of your counter. The rice still comes out fine, but clean-up can be a hassle.

With 3 cups water (1.5 cups rice or less), the Aroma works flawlessly. Just something to bear in mind!

4.0 out of 5 stars Check for "neutral" (not ground) wire before buying, January 27, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The switch works exactly as advertised, but there's a big caveat: Belkin says these will not work unless the switch box is equipped with a "neutral" (not ground) wire -- this is not common in older construction/wiring.

If you get it wired correctly, these are a great solution for home automation, especially augmented by services like IFTTT.

e.g. My switch turns my path light on/off whenever the sun sets/rises (as determined by IFTTT).

3.0 out of 5 stars They work, but the bluish hue is irritating, January 27, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Definitely a cheap, bright, reliable night-light with a dependable, responsive light sensor.

However, the LEDs have a distinct blue-ish hue that is far from pleasant.

It's not so bad I'd send for a refund, but I think of these as more utilitarian than contributing to any kind of ambiance.

3.0 out of 5 stars Works (but no differently than a normal moleskine), January 27, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Solid build (as you'd expect from Moleskine) and an attractive, with an interesting, embossed cover design.

However: despite the touted Evernote integration, it does not appear to cause cleaner/more reliable imports into the app.

As an added bonus, it does include 3-months of included Evernote Premium.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great for grill tools, January 27, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This commercial-grade hotel pan is great for storing all of your grill tools and carrying them out to the backyard.

Its rugged construction means it will be hard-wearing/long-lasting.

Due to the standard length of a hotel pan, it won't fit in most dishwashers.
