1.0 out of 5 stars Not a SHAKER, contents pour out continuously as long as you hold it inverted. :(, May 14, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is NOT a shaker, but rather a dispenser.

When filled with the Flavacol popcorn salt Amazon recommends this shaker to go with, the salt pours out of the top as fast as it can - no shaking needed and certain to destroy a batch of popcorn - I'm grateful I decided to test its flow rate over a trash can first.

The only way this "shaker" is useful is if you pour the salt into your hand first or if you shake it "upright" so the salt falls back down over the shaker, your hand and into the popcorn - once again making it LESS useful than pouring salt into your hand and onto popcorn.

Perhaps it would work with salt in larger sizes, but for the fine Flavacol popcorn salt, stay far away.

5.0 out of 5 stars Crucial for any movie theater popcorn fan!, May 14, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is THE flavored popcorn salt used by most theatre chains.

It's flavorful and as it's colored yellow you can see how much you've added where - no guesswork or over-salting!

When it comes to flavor, I'm torn between this and sea salt, but if you want the movie theater experience, there's nothing better than real popcorn popped in coconut oil topped with Flavacol.

As an aside, if you're a 50s/60s design fan like I am, you'll love the carton graphics as well!

5.0 out of 5 stars As good as Duracell Coppertops at a significant savings over retail., April 28, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
These batteries have demonstrated the exact same lifespan as the retail-focused Duracell Coppertops, but are available for less thanks to the bulk packaging. Even better, each has a little plastic clip on the top in case anything comes in contact with the top of the battery; with blister packs you have to keep the whole package around until you use all the batteries to avoid this.

These were purchased for use in a hand-held mic transmitter where the battery needs to be changed every four hours or so, so I can't comment how they'd work in a long-life, low drain application like a smoke detector, but for guitar pres and mics, they're perfect.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Kit Kat Extra Crispy bar was discontinued, this is the new, smaller version but tastes exactly the same., April 28, 2016
These are the replacement for the Kit Kat "Extra Crispy" bar.

They taste exactly the same, but there are the following differences:

1) The size drops from the Extra Crispy's 1.61 oz. to the Big Kat's 1.5 oz. (the bar is slightly shorter now.)
2) The bar is scored on the top making it appear you can break it into three pieces,.,.l./......, but in reality the wafers are strong enough the bar will never actually break there.
3) Because of the smaller size, the calorie count per bar drops from 220 to 210.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mandatory for any washer!, April 21, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
It's crucial to upgrade to a braided washer hose to avoid possible water damage due to burst rubber hoses. The nice thing here is these hoses have a larger inner diameter, allowing faster fill of your washer.

While they're not required, why not give your washer a little extra flow rate for a negligible price difference from other stainless washer hoses?

3.0 out of 5 stars Great documentary, but not in any way different from what was broadcast along with audio issues., April 21, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
While it's great to have this PBS special on disc, there's something about the mastering of the audio on this Blu-ray that gives it a bit of an echo as compared to the version broadcast on PBS.

The good thing is the effect only seems to affect the narration, not the musical sequences (the audio of the PBS broadcast did NOT have this issue, so it happened somewhere in the disc mastering process.)

I was, however, quite disappointed that the disc does NOT include the full, unedited acoustic video of "(You Make Me Feel Like a) Natural Woman" that PBS posted to their web site, so on-disc you're left only with the interrupted by narration clip that is part of the show itself.

Still, if you haven't seen it, it's well worth your time; personally I would not have purchased the disc if I had known the version of the above song included as an extra was not the unedited clip from the documentary as seen on the PBS website.

5.0 out of 5 stars Have to repurchase Pillow Talk, but thrilled to finally have "Send Me No Flowers" and "Lover Come Back" on Blu!, April 21, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Finally, "Send Me no Flowers" and "Lover Come Back" hit Blu-ray!

I won't spend time discussing the films - you're undoubtedly familiar with all three of these Doris Day/Rock Hudson masterpieces, none of which would be anywhere near as good without the spectacular Tony Randall as well.

Instead, I'll just thank Universal for finally releasing the trilogy on Blu-ray.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice to get the videos, music compressed compared to the original CD release, April 21, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Of course the music is wonderful, but like so many remasters today this edition compresses dynamics as compared to the original 1983 CD release.

I get the desire to make it seem "louder" but there's no reason, especially on a soundtrack like this, to reduce dynamics in favor of the appearance of louder presentation (see the accompanying photo.) That's why playback devices have "volume" controls. :(

On the other hand, this was worth a purchase for the Chess Videos, previously only available on VHS tape, finally available on DVD here. They clearly show their 1982 SD video origins, but it's nice to have a clean, not from a VHS tape copy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice but there are drawbacks compared to the older version, March 24, 2016
I like the theory behind this new simplehuman can - it's great to have the liners handy and the new way of keeping the bag in place seems to be much smarter.

However, I found I preferred the older model, simplehuman Rectangular Step Trash Can, Stainless Steel, 50 L / 13.2 Gal, for these reasons:

1) The liner pocket is handy, but its placement on the back of the can means the can can no longer snug up to a cabinet or wall. Instead, the can can get no closer than the depth of the liner pocket.

2) The idea of the rim that slides down over the liner edge is nice, except to get the plastic drawstring over the edges of the can means there's enough bag over the edge that it can be seen peeking out 1/16" or more beyond the edge of the outer "rim." (This is using the simplehuman "Q" liners.)

Depending on how much of a perfectionist you are, this may be no big deal, but one of the nice things about the liner bucket on the older CW1816 can is that the bag and bin could not be seen giving the can a very clean look; on the new model you will see some white plastic on at least one edge at all times.

Note that since there is no inner bucket any more, if the bag ever leaks, you get to clean up the inside of the can itself rather than just hose out the bucket.

This is a very beautiful can and is well made, it's just the two issues noted above are enough to make me stick with the CW1816 can.

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally on Blu-ray, and absolutely beautiful!, March 10, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Xanadu [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
I won't go into the merits of the movie itself here, but rather want to comment on the Blu-ray release.

Simply put, this movie has never looked better on home video. It's a bit grainy at times, as was the case for the film stock used during the period, but that also means it doesn't suffer from excessive noise reduction. The audio is presented in a 5.1 DTS HD mix, which I have a few misgivings about simply because the original film was only mixed to Dolby Stereo. There seems to be excessive channel separation applied but it still sounds good with no "phasing" artifacts. However, flipping briefly over to the Spanish and French mixes, they are very, very bright and harsh, musically. The Spanish mix in particular was so bright as to be painful to listen to.

The extras are nothing special, just the Back to Xanadu documentary from 2008 and a trailer.

Still, it's awesome to have this title on Blu-ray at all, and it looks much better than the HD version floating around the pay movie channels for several years and the streaming version available for purchase from the iTunes store, among others.

Especially for the price, it's definitely worth it for any fan.
