Swift Coffee and Espresso Machine Milk Frother Cleaner Brush
Swift Coffee and Espresso Machine Milk Frother Cleaner Brush
Offered by Swift Promotions
Price: $4.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Well-made, effective design for tight spots, March 2, 2015
This is a pretty simple brush, but the design makes it ideal for getting into tight spots. The head is narrow (a hair over 1/2 inch) and has a curved portion which makes it ideal for getting into bottles, jars and, of course, the intended goal of getting into milk frothers. The bristles are well-attached and are fairly stiff. There's also a small tuft of bristles at the end of the handle for detail cleaning. I found the tuft to be very effective in scrubbing out a portafilter insert.

The handle has a non-slip grip which kept it steady in my hands even when wet. The grip is comfortable with the exception that the bristles at the very end of the handle can hit your palm if you grip it too low.

It's all plastic, but the plastic is of good quality. It didn't flex or feel like it was going to break even when I pressed super hard on it.

For the price, it's a great value, and a very handy brush to have in the kitchen for a range of tasks. Highly recommend.

Flash Pro Camera Lens Cup
Flash Pro Camera Lens Cup
Offered by RSL GROUP
Price: $22.49
2 used & new from $9.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent detail work; nice cup; top is a bit cumbersome, February 28, 2015
This review is from: Flash Pro Camera Lens Cup
The detail on this is very well done. The focus rings are have excellent detail, and all the lettering is clear and sharp. It really looks like the actual lens!

The cup is stainless steel and can be used for either hot or cold beverages. It stands flat and secure, even though the bottom cap is (as with the actual lens) far narrower than the with of the lens midsection.

The top is a little inconvenient to use. While it continues to mimic the actual lens with a lens hood, the hood tends to get in the way. You can easily remove it for use, but it adds enough height to the cup to make it a bit hard to fit into a cabinet.

It's a fun cup to have if you're an avid photographer, or a great gift for the photo-nut friend or family member. Good value for the price.

Chelsydale's Silicone Baking Cups - 12 Vibrant Cupcake Liners in Storage Container
Chelsydale's Silicone Baking Cups - 12 Vibrant Cupcake Liners in Storage Container
Offered by Chelsydale
Price: $19.75

4.0 out of 5 stars Great performance and quality; flimsy storage container, February 28, 2015
These are a great alternative to paper or foil cupcake cups. In addition to the fact that these are reusable, the cupcake pops out much easier than if you bake directly in the pan.

They are silicon and, while thick enough to survive many, many uses, they are not thick enough to stand on their own. You absolutely want to put these into a pan, and not try to use them freestanding (unless you like cleaning up a messed-up oven). I give them a quick spray with Pam before filling, but that's not mandatory, since silicone is pretty non-stick as-is. I mainly use the spray when I'm making something that is more delicate, and don't bother with items such as cornmeal muffins.

It comes with what is called a "storage container" but it's pretty flimsy plastic. I tossed that, and store them in a sturdier plastic container.

The colors are very bright and vibrant.

My only complaint is the size -- it would be great to have these in jumbo size since the really big muffins can be a challenge to get out of the pan in a single piece. These are fine for regular size cupcakes/muffins, so I'm not going to dock the rating based on that issue.

I will lower the rating by one star due to the flimsy storage container since, at this price, it should come with a more sturdy, secure way to keep them stowed in the drawer. Regardless of that issue, these are well worth getting -- they work very well, come in fun colors, and are sturdy. A must-have if you bake cupcakes or muffins on a regular basis.

Sentry 6 Count Fiproguard Plus for Dogs Squeeze-On, 45-88-Pound
Sentry 6 Count Fiproguard Plus for Dogs Squeeze-On, 45-88-Pound
Offered by UniversalExports
Price: $18.99
20 used & new from $14.50

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy to apply; no skin irritation; good results, February 28, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I've used Frontline with excellent results, and have noticed zero difference using Sentry. Given that it has the same ingredients that's what I expected, but I have found with other products that the "copy" sometimes has different carrier ingredients which can lead to skin irritation. That has not been the case with Sentry -- same results and the same lack of skin irritation.

Zero complaints from owner or dog. Easy way to get rid of, and avoid, flea problems.


Chelsydale's Meat Claws - Meat Handler Forks / Pulled Pork Shredder Pullers / Shredding BBQ Forks
Chelsydale's Meat Claws - Meat Handler Forks / Pulled Pork Shredder Pullers / Shredding BBQ Forks
Offered by Chelsydale
Price: $29.95

5.0 out of 5 stars Handy in the kitchen in addition to BBQ shredding, February 28, 2015
If you are a fan of pulled pork, you have to get these. It makes the job MUCH easier, and the end result is more uniform than if you do it the old school way (e.g., two forks or, for the real old-school folks, your bare hands).

I like the design of these claws much better than the wire ones. I've used both, and the thicker plastic claws are more effective and quicker than the metal wire ones. Additionally, there's less clogging of the tines with these. Cleanup is also easier with this design -- a strong stream of hot water and any lingering meat is gone. They are also dishwasher safe.

The handle comfort is very good. It's hard plastic, but rounded so that it doesn't cut into your palms in use. I usually wear grill gloves (silicone gloves) when using these to protect against the heat, and the handles are large enough so that I can still get a good grip.

In addition to their main use for shredding, they also come in handy when you want to pick up a large roast from the BBQ, smoker, or even the oven. They provide a much better grip than tongs when dealing with a large roast (or chicken).

Nicely made and they work well. Zero complaints!

Flash Pro Canon Replica EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM Lens Cup
Flash Pro Canon Replica EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM Lens Cup
Offered by RSL GROUP
Price: $19.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Pretty realistic copy; nice cup design, February 28, 2015
This is a very realistic copy of a Canon 24-105 lens. The markings are very accurate, and the plastic is a very effective mimic of the actual lens. At arms length it would be tough to determine which is the real lens and which is the cup.

But, unlike the lens, you can use this as a pretty decent cup for hot or cold liquids. The cup portion is stainless steel, and the lid has a non-spill closure so you can use it mess-free in the car. Granted, the lens shape doesn't make this the most comfortable cup I've used, but the fun factor more than makes up for that.

Fun little toy if you're a photographer (or want to get something for a photo buff).

4.0 out of 5 stars A weird little item that really grows on you, February 28, 2015
When I first got this I didn’t care for it, since it seemed that it would be more of a “get in the way” type of product than a useful one. But, after using it for a while I found it to be pretty useful for not only phones, but box mods.

It’s a small item, with the base measuring about 1.5 inches on each side. It’s all metal, and feels really well made. The base and ring are both highly polished and have a good heft to them. I have it in Titanium metal, and it's a rich, deep gray/black color that looks very nice.

To use it, you peel the plastic backing off, and stick this on the back of whatever you want to have help holding/carrying/using. The pad is very sticky, but it can be removed. Before I stuck it on something valuable, I tried it out on some old phones and mp3 players. It sticks firmly, but can be pried off and re-stuck on another item. I found that removing it worked best if I used a small screwdriver to gently pry up one corner, then pull it off slowly using the ring. The pad did not leave any residue on the item it was attached to, nor did it cause any damage.

I imagine there’s a limit to how many times it can be stuck on/pulled off, but I’ve done that at least a dozen times so far, and have not noticed any decrease in gripping power.

To use it you stick it on the back of whatever you want to hold, and you have a ring to put your finger through. It helps guard against dropping the item since the ring around your finger keeps it from dropping.

The ring can be moved into pretty much any position up or down, and also rotates 360 degrees. The ring can also be used as a stand of sorts, but only for smaller items, such as phones. I didn’t have much luck using it as a table stand for my tablet. It works, but it’s too small to be all that sturdy. For a phone, however, it makes for a decent stand.

If you’re a box mod user (if you vape you’ll know what that is. If not, just skip this paragraph) this is a great item to have when driving. I tried it on a couple of box mods with good results. It worked especially well on a Billet Box since I could position the ring to keep the fire button exactly where I wanted it while using this one-handed. No more fumbling to pick up and put down the mod in the car.

The only downside, and the reason for a loss of one star, is that the ring is a bit small if you have larger fingers. It oval shaped, with a max width of about 1 inch. I found that to be a bit constraining and, at times, uncomfortable. The metal, while durable, is not exactly ideal for finger comfort and can dig in at times.

That issue aside, it’s an item that has proven to be helpful in hanging on to items. It’s rather unusual, but it works (with the limitation being your finger size).

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent quality and performance; somewhat heavy to tote around, February 28, 2015
This is an excellent quality yoga (or general exercise) mat. It’s very durable and solid feeling, is wonderfully non-slip, and offers very nice cushioning. The only downside is that it’s got more heft than the typical mat, making it necessary to work a bit harder to tote it around.

The mat is made of natural rubber which has a much different – and better – feel than the typical vinyl mat. It gave me a far more secure footing, which is important since I’m not exactly the most coordinated person out there. It also stayed put on the floor, both on hardwood and ceramic tile, without any creeping, sliding or bunching. I can’t fault it whatsoever when it comes to performance.

Comfort is also very good. It’s thin, but cushy enough that I didn’t feel the floor through it.

Since this is made of natural rubber, there’s a little bit more care needed to keep it in good condition. According to the manufacturer, there is a slight film on the surface that wears off with use, or can be taken off using vinegar. I gave mine a quick wash with vinegar and a fresh water rinse prior to use, and didn’t notice any film at all. For on-going cleaning, the manufacturer recommends a damp cloth using plain water or vinegar. Solvent-based cleaners should NOT be used, and the mat should not be stored in direct sunlight.

There is a bit of a rubber smell when I first unrolled it, but I didn’t find it to be strong enough to be objectionable, and the initial wash got rid of most of it.

The only negative is the weight. Rolled up it’s a good deal heavier than my old mat. It’s somewhat difficult to weigh this, but I’d estimate the weight at about 4 or 5 pounds. Not a huge deal, but you’ll feel the weight. On the plus side, when rolled up this can deliver a pretty good thwack should someone be bothering you.

Excellent performance, build quality and durability. While it is a bit heavier, the plusses more than make up for that, and I would highly recommend this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Miles better than the bargain brands, February 27, 2015
I’ve been using microfiber towels for years, but usually get the bargain brands in the large multi-packs at warehouse clubs. These are a major step above those in terms of both quality and performance.

These are plush and thick – nearly twice as thick as the bargain ones. Thickness is a big plus when it comes to tasks such as washing windows and cleaning counters. The extra thickness sops up more window spray (or water), which makes the job go faster and, in the case of window washing, makes it streak-free. It also is very helpful for tasks such as car care (drying the car after washing it, applying/buffing wax, etc.). I was really impressed at how much better these worked compared with my old ones.

Both sides of the cloth are microfiber, another improvement over the bargain ones, which usually limit the microfiber to one side, and have the other side as plain terry. With these, you get two microfiber sides, which doubles the utility.

The build quality is excellent, with a sewn edge all around. That’s important to keep the cloth from fraying after multiple washes. Tip: don’t use fabric softener in the wash since it will harm the water absorbing capability of microfiber cloths. Ideally, they should be air dried after laundering but, if you do dry them in the dryer, don’t use fabric softener dryer sheets.

The set comes with 8 towels in four different colors.

Zero complaints – these are the best quality microfiber cloths I’ve used to date, and I would highly recommend them. They are more expensive than the bulk pack brands, but the better quality and performance makes them well worth the cost.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well-made, excellent roller design for effective results, February 26, 2015
This is a well-made roller. However, the design is a little different than the product photo. Rather than have small "nubs" on the rollers, the rollers look like gears, with wide plastic teeth. For me, that design works much better since the "gears" dig deeper into muscles, but do it in a much less painful way than my older roller, which had nubs. Very nice design!

The build quality is good, with a nice, solid feel to the roller. The gears turn freely, and everything is held together well. The handles are pretty comfortable but could be softer. They are not rock hard, but a rubber-type coating on the handles would have been helpful in making them more non-slip.

It's simple to use: press and roll; repeat. For some areas, such as your back, you need to have another person do the rolling. That's the only downside, since it can be difficult to communicate fine-level variations that are needed in terms of pressure (e.g., there's a lot of "press harder...no, that's too hard....no, harder than that..." type of conversation).

Very handy device to have for sore muscles, physical therapy, or just for relaxing. It loses a half star due to the handle design, but I'll round up to 5 stars since it does everything else well, and the gear design is much nicer to use than the "nub" versions.
