5.0 out of 5 stars Most potent product on the market, May 25, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
At 25% vitamin C, this is probably the strongest solution I've encountered to date...most are in the range of 10% with some going as high as 20%...none to my knowledge have more than 20% until now. Glass bottle and ample size make this the biggest bang for your buck especially when it comes to the active ingredient. Also, unlike some other solutions, this has some added moisturizer which is ultra important for those that aren't in their teens as vitamin C can be drying for mature skin types.

5.0 out of 5 stars Smart for summer salad servings, May 25, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is my second experience with this company - the other is a unique cold serve bowl as well but this is a bit different. The stainless steel bowl (which I especially like thanks to the health concerns of lesser materials) is ample size for a salad and comes with easy lift handles. The dome top keeps food covered and then entire thing sits inside a 2nd bowl with ice. There are two serving pieces to complete the set. Great idea for those hot summer picnics or to serve and transport cool items like salads. It's even easy to add a bit of flair with colored ice cubs. Fun and functional set is perfect for a housewarming or thank you gift for a hostess. Coupon code resulted in low/no cost purchase for evaluation purposes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unique design = great gift giving idea or keep for self, May 25, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is a great idea especially for outdoor entertaining or just to keep a garden salad fresh during those dog days of summer. The main bowl is sufficiently large for a good family sized salad (or whatever else you have in mind) and has four side containers for condiments or other extras. The entire bowl sits on top of a vented area to put ice or a cold pack to keep everything cool. It's a very ingenious idea and an item I've never seen before. Clear acrylic, this fits into any decor thanks to a very neutral appearance. Easy to clean. Would make a nice housewarming gift or small thank you to a hostess. Great to have on hand for parties!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best selection of all the sets I've encountered, May 25, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Over the years I've bought a few of these but never have encountered such a complete set! Not only does this have several size resistance bands but the hand grips (which I had to buy separately in the past), carry case, wall pulley, ankle straps and more. By FAR the most complete set I've encountered with the added benefit of a carry case for storage or packing when out on the road. If you are just getting started with resistance bands then this is the set to start with as it has everything needed...if you eventually go up in size on the resistance bands, it's easy enough to buy those separately...but I've never had reason to do so yet. My spouse does use mega large size resistance bands of 50 to 80 lb weight but these are the sizes I return to most frequently. VERY nice set!

5.0 out of 5 stars Simple yet effective, May 25, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Over the years I've switched from using a large wallet that contains a checking book (since those are barely ever used) to a small wallet for cards. When searching for RFID wallets, most seem to target men and just don't hold enough cards. This is different. It has a small change purse on one side and several card divisions on the other side. Combined it's a bit thicker than a guys wallet but not much different than the old fashioned check wallet combo...yet still half the length. Big space saver! Overall a simple yet effective design.

5.0 out of 5 stars Above average, May 25, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Back in the day buying tools was simple; SnapOn was expensive but even Craftsman came with a lifetime warranty. All that has changed. Cheap tools are some of the most expensive - at best they wear out fast and at worst, damage your machines/other. Initially I needed something to toss in the travel trailer when out on the road and thought this would work well...and it does. Basic set includes the most common sizes. Easy carry holder is very nice - sockets snap into place along with the wrench and extension. Unlike the old blow molded cases, this can fit inside a nice carry tote with ease or will remain secure just about anywhere. Takes up very little space.

Tools and sockets feel solid - good weight, polish finish. These are nice 'old school' with the finger press release (no need to tug with greasy hands/other). Good turn ratio means less work. All in all a nice little go-to set.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent for all ages and skill levels, May 25, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I'm from a long line of women who could create a masterpiece with a sewing machine (and by hand as well). My mother made her own wedding gown, my grandmother could create any item of clothing or home decorations known to mankind and my great-grandmother made all clothing for the family through the Great Depression...and well beyond. Then I was born. My mother tried to teach me, my grandmother gave up and my great grandmother loved me despite the mess I'd make with a sewing machine. Throughout the years I've managed to improve but as evidence by the last shirt I made for my husband...there is still room for improvement.

What I lack in skill, I more than make up for in enthusiasm. What can I say, despite everything, I find sewing relaxing (it could be the wine). After fighting and feuding with old machines and old ways of doing things, a few years ago I upgraded. For those, like myself, that learned on those old Sears Kenmore machines (you know the ones that have barely any features but NEVER die), well...things have improved! New machines are wonderful. Then I realized that not only have the machines improved but also the process. I bought a few books including one of my favorites "Making Trousers" by this same author. For those that are familiar with "Making Trousers" this style of this shirt book is similar...packed full of visuals, photo's, charts and tips with an easy conversational tone. For those that are not familiar, you will probably want to buy both books.

Now, about this book...it's wonderful. As of this writing, I have an advanced reading copy so the online information is not yet fully available so I'm not able to comment on that yet but the book itself is more than worth it. For old school folks like myself, even simple tips like how to sew without using pins or construct a collar without back facing (!!!!????) is practically revolutionary. Creating your own pattern, using blocks, customizing a look and so forth...the book makes it all feel do-able with clear, precise step-by-step pictures every step of the way.

Resources are scattered throughout - a very nice touch for those that want to delve deeper or add to their collection of sewing stuff. All in all a wonderful addition. Novice will appreciate the direct to the point instructions while veterans will be impressed by the time saving tips. Excellent!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun item, May 24, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
ARrived very quickly. Was better looking and more comfortable than expected. Came charged and working out of the box. Instructions are not the best so plan on taking some time to fiddle with this to get it working the way you want but otherwise, a fun item. Screen is clear and has decent visibility. I received a coupon code for a reduced price and was basically curious - using it with Android so iphone users, your mileage may vary.

5.0 out of 5 stars Strong, less loud and dry pulp, May 24, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
We do a lot of fresh juicing so tend to run through these machines like mad. Over the past decade, we've bought two different Omega juicers (they wore out fast), two Waring Juicers (workhorses that leave a lot of wet pulp behind but otherwise are great), plus a few other brands that leave dry pulp but have a hard time handling fiber. In short, I feel fairly qualified to provide the good, bad and neutral about this machine.

The Good
- Quiet. While certainly not silent, this was absolutely less loud than other machines - many of which sound something like an airplane engine taking off. This is by no means silent but "less loud"....considerably less loud.
- Pretty Strong. At 900 watts, there are stronger juicers on the market (and many more lesser quality ones) but this is a respectable amount of power to get the job done. To test it, we tossed in some carrots with whole apples. Both moved through without incident.
- Dry. Here is where this machines stands out. We have owned two Waring models that were workhorses...they could handle anything we put in there and stand up for years but the pulp was also wet. Now, wet pulp = less juice and with the price of organic fruit/veggies, that means a very real loss of money. This results in significantly dryer pulp which over time, means significant savings if you juice a lot!
- Easy to operate, easy to clean and smaller size (more about the size in a minute). This has a nice look, solid base that doesn't wiggle or jiggle when in use, easy functions all around.

The Bad
- On one hand, the smaller size is nice for storage but on the other hand, this is considerably smaller than our other juicers. The pulp collector holds about half as does the juice bin. Both are adequate but if you intend to juice for several people at once, this won't handle it....you will need to empty and repeat. Not a big deal but capacity is smaller.
- Only two speeds. Again, not a big deal but something to keep in mind.

Bottom line - because of the ease and convenience combined with dry pulp and price point plus "less loud" than average, I'd rate this a good value. Better than 2 other Omega's due to the strength, better than two other Waring models due to the dry pulp and better than average sound level. Better than other models due to ability to handle carrots and apples etc with ease. Strong, quiet and dry pulp.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good but not spectacular, May 24, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
In recent months I've become a fan of this brand but this product didn't impress me nearly as much as most. Perhaps my expectations were too high given the quality of the BBQ and patio covers (which are superb). There are both good and bad so I'll outline each below.

Good
- Comes with a convenient carry case.
- Easy to install/remove
- Fairly substantial thickness but remains light weight

Bad
- Non adjusting hooks/other hardware. I was very surprised that the hardware portion was so lacking. Not only does it not adjust but it's smaller than hoped and overall rather insufficient. It will get the job done but these are the weak spot on the item more prone to failure.
- Thin. This brand makes some wonderful lined canvas that resists sun on the outside yet remains water tight on the inside....this is not that whatsoever. In fact, the entire cart cover weigh less than the BBQ cover by the same company. The plastic or vinyl type cover is thin and light weight but really affords no other benefit over other brands.

Overall this is good but nothing spectacular. I'd shop based on price as the features of this are more or less in keeping with others.
