All-Clad Textiles Reversible Fast-Drying Mat, 16-Inch x 28-Inch, Pewter
All-Clad Textiles Reversible Fast-Drying Mat, 16-Inch x 28-Inch, Pewter
Price: $12.99

4.0 out of 5 stars A very usably sized mat!!! NICE!!!, April 28, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
this is a nicely sized drying mat for your kitchen counter - we use a large wooden rack next to the secondary sink to put washed items such as dishes, small pots, coffee mugs, etc. - we also found a nice bamboo silverware drainer that clips onto the rack - because of the silverware attachment, most mats are too short to accommodate the pair, resulting in drips on the counter

however, this mat fills the bill perfectly! it is also long enough to allow us to move the rack and drainer farther back, giving us even more room to place glasses, etc. upside down on the mat

however, i did take off one star - it's not really reversible - the obverse side has an unsightly mesh - not meant to be shown

otherwise, this is a fabulous mat - very nice! i think you'll be pleased - it's a keeper!

3.0 out of 5 stars not as useful as i hoped, April 28, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
not as useful as i though it would be - many of the machinery designs are too big for this hoop - this one is best used for monograms, small designs... i've used it less than 1 out of 100 times...

5.0 out of 5 stars GET THIS FLOSSING KIT - IT WORKS!!!, April 28, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
i'll admit i was skeptical and amused when i saw these... but guess what?

THEY WORK GREAT!!!!

i need, like many folks, to floss more often... i have strugged with floss, floss tape, floss picks, and proxabrushes...

but after opening this package, 'snap-clicking' one end into each of the 'chuck' handles, and flossing, i've finally discovered a fast and easy way to floss! this is a great little kit to take on vacation in your Dopp kit

no longer do i have to contort my sausage-like fingers to accurately and easily floss - kudos to the inventor and manufacturer for bringing this item to market!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars pricey, not crunchy, but DELICIOUS (to our cat), April 28, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
wasn't quite sure what to expect with this product, but here's what happened when we opened the bag and tossed a few tablespoons into our cat's bowl: GONE!!! ...

he loved it! wanted more! and this was a good thing for him and for us!

this food has the word 'dried' in its name, but you'll find the food to be soft, not crunchy.. this can be a good thing, especially with older cats or cats with gum problems - it does add a nice mix-up to the dried food we keep out (our cat fortunately is a 'self-feeder,' and does not overeat)

the *only* reason i'm taking off one star is for the list price - not really affordable to the majority of cat owners, but apparently one of the better feeds on the market due to ingredients...

we like it, our cat likes it - four stars!

5.0 out of 5 stars good on its own or for making 'bootleg' AS, April 25, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
this is good stuff - for the life of me, i don't know why this (and other) offering isn't for sale nationwide - but as most modern shavers 'in the know' know, Osage Rub can be mixed with other aftershaves to make some incredibly nice 'bootleg' fragrances

get it, use it, love it!

5.0 out of 5 stars a great read!, April 19, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
great book, funny characters, good plot, well-written... these are some of phrases i'd use to recommend this book to a friend - this novel has also sparked my interest in others from this author - something many of the offerings in the literary marketplace fail to do

i like the author's use of humor - it helps bring his characters 'to life' - not every book of this genre has to be filled with constant darkness - some light is appreciated

i think you'll like this book and this author - i'm glad i took the opportunity to read his work - this is the type of book that would help you pass the time easily on a lazy weekend

5.0 out of 5 stars working caps - they do not leak!!!, April 16, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
excellent product that actually works (unlike some other oenophile accessories) - just remember to 'SNAP-CLICK'! to close the cap when putting up your bottle

lightweight - one star
easy to insert - one star
fits cork openings - one star
one-handed operation - one star
does not leak when closed (essential!) - one star - i tested on a 3/4 bottle, inverted and shook upside down - not a drop spilled!

these pourers have other uses as well - i create, mix, and decant my own aftershaves, and these 'pourers' work just fine for my larger decants - quite useful and more convenient than corks or glass stoppers!

5.0 out of 5 stars Each Bag Needs a Time Lock, April 13, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
These are absolutely evil. They are without a doubt the most delicious pieces of chocolate I have ever had. Each bag needs to come with a time lock, set to only dispense one piece every day. The temptation is just too great. I could eat half of a bag at one sitting, even knowing that it would not be a good idea.

These melt in your mouth and definitely in your hands. They are creamy. They are smooth tasting. They have a delicious little 'crunch' due to the tiny toffee bits dispensed inside, floating around in a sweet and mellow milk chocolate.

They are absolute perfection. They are perfectly evil. And I'm buying another bag.

Real Soon Now. Wish me luck. I will die happy.


BIC Pencil Xtra Fun, #2 HB, 18-Count
BIC Pencil Xtra Fun, #2 HB, 18-Count
Price: $5.99

1.0 out of 5 stars awful!, April 11, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
i normally like Bic products, from the company that bought Waterman and closed it and produced inexpensive pens and lighters, but now also sells razor blades and a host of other disposable products)

BUT, these 'pencils' aren't really pencils - more like a way to reduce production costs and offer an inferior product...

they are thinner than normal pencils (a bit more than a millimeter)
they are not made of wood - not sure what the material is (plastic?)
the erasers are smaller in size than 'normal' pencils (about 80 percent less)
they bend easily (you can snap one in half with very little effort)
they do not sharpen as easily, cleanly, or as well as regular wood/leaded pencils
they are barely #2
they cost more than regular pencils

there is absolutely no reason to buy these pencils unless you live in an area so infested with government regulation that wood pencils with leads are proscribed as dangerous to nesting owls, babies and kittens

this product is a perfect example of an absurd solution to a non-problem
