VonShef 4 Piece Air Fryer Accessory Set
VonShef 4 Piece Air Fryer Accessory Set
Offered by Designer Habitat
Price: $49.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Great addition to already super fryer, July 7, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
After getting the VonShef turbo air fryer to test I bought the accessory package. I love the air fryer and wanted to do more with it. The skewers are my favorite part. I skewer marinated meat for gyros, veggies, it blisters peppers beautifully.. The steak cage is great for small meatballs also. This set really expands my use of the air fryer. We have it sitting out on the counter right now because we use it daily for everything from a frozen pizza to baking a chicken (the skin was so crisp! the meat, so juicy!) If you get the turbo fryer I highly recommend going ahead and getting this set, I was surprised at how much I am using the turbo fryer and with this set I can use it even more.

3.0 out of 5 stars Comfortale mouth peice, July 4, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Jim says:

Three stars

I have a love/hate relationship with this snorkel. First the good. The mouthpiece is incredible comfortable which counts for a lot.

On the other hand, the flex section is short and relatively stiff. The mouthpiece does not drop out of the way when scuba diving.

Since the tube is not round, you cannot rotate tje entire snorkel to move mouthpiece out of the way. What keeps this from being a four star snorkel is that it has too much breathing resistance.

Instinct Raw Boost Mixer Chicken Formula Dry Food for Dogs, 6 oz
Instinct Raw Boost Mixer Chicken Formula Dry Food for Dogs, 6 oz
Price: $22.00

4.0 out of 5 stars Healthy and Izzy begs for them, July 2, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
The good, Izzy loves these little cubes of goodness. They aren't meant to be the dog's main diet, you mix them up with the regular dog food you buy, good thing because these are wow, pricey! However, they make great dog treats. They aren't greasy, they aren't smelly, so they are great for training treats.

Izzy has dry skin and skin allergies, so the salmon oil in these are a real plus. She likes them and I like everything but the cost.

5.0 out of 5 stars Functional for what I wanted, July 1, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I have been looking for something reasonably sized, can sit on a counter, stackable, and won't break the bank for my potatoes and onions. These little plastic bins are perfect for what I wanted. They are white plastic, not the prettiest things, but they function very well. There are little pull out tabs on the bottom for stacking. They hold an entire bag of onions with room for shallots and garlic heads. They hold a 5 lb bag of potatoes

For my needs this is exactly what I was looking for.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brightest setting (1000 lumens) is great for using during the day, June 28, 2015
Jim says:

The Nitecore EC4 flashlight is small, but amazingly powerful. Has a very wide range of light intensities. Brightest setting (1000 lumens) is great for using during the day. For example, I can easily check oil level in yard equipment.

Usually there is too much sun light and shadows are too deep for ordinary flashlights to overcome, but not for the EC4. On the other end, the very low output (1 lumen) is great for night since you can use it and not destroy your night vision.

The EC4 has a solid aluminum body, a tough crystal lens, and is waterproof. The EC4 does NOT use standard AAA, AA, C or D cell batteries. This kit comes with a pair of 18650 Lithium batteries and charger for super long run times. Since getting the CR4, I have retired my three 'D' cell mag light.

RinseKit Portable Sprayer
RinseKit Portable Sprayer

4.0 out of 5 stars Well built, but big and bulky for only holding two gallons, June 27, 2015
This review is from: RinseKit Portable Sprayer (Misc.)
The good:

I like how it sits on the counter or ground without having to find some where to hang it. I like the way the hose, nozzle, and attachments all sit inside on a top shelf, like a tool box.

However, it only holds two gallons, in a hard balloon like plastic oval inside the box, so it's a lot of wasted space, making the box big and bulky. It is also heavy.

As it sprays it loses pressure for the last bit of water.

Overall this is a nice sprayer but I would prefer either it hold more water or have a smaller foot print. The build is very sturdy.

Jillian Cade: (Fake) Paranormal Investigator
Jillian Cade: (Fake) Paranormal Investigator
by Jen Klein
Edition: Hardcover
Price: $14.24

4.0 out of 5 stars Jillian Cade is a nice way to spend an afternoon, June 26, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Jillian Cade, the book, tries hard. I didn't feel the snappy snark was as successful, probably not a good idea to compare ones heroine to Veronica Mars, the queen of snap, tough girl, and vulnerable teen all at the same time. That being said the book was good. Jilian's investigator dad has run off, leaving her alone, so she takes over the business, paranormal investigations.

There's the inevitable love interest, screwball best friend, no mystery machine or scooby snacks though. Jillian is fairly likeable and the author does a good job keeping her consistent and sounding like a teen who is smart and capable but still, for all intents and purposes, abandoned. The writing is good as far as story line and plotting and pacing. While I didn't love this book it was a nice way to spend an afternoon.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cute and keeps the bowl on the mat, not across the floor, June 25, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Cute little dog mat for food and water. The mat does keep her from sliding the bowl around with her nose. The design is very cute. the stitching is okay, you can see the joining and it's crossed over and a little lumpy at the join. This is super easy to hang to dry or wash and dry. Very nice and keeps the water off the floor and Izzy from sliding the plate or bowl around with her nose, plus it's really cute

Izzy is a 15 lb dog, for a large dog with large bowls you would probably need two of these, it's a little small.

4.0 out of 5 stars tasty and 100 calories for 15 grams of protien., June 25, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
The EAS protein is a nice product,, especially at 15 g of protein for only 100 calories. It also has five grams of dietary fiber, and the scoop design is nice compared to our more traditional but harder to dig into jars of protein powder.

I am more of a fan of unflavored protein, I like to add my own vanilla, sweetener etc, but this is not bad. It tastes like melted vanilla ice cream according to one of my sons. It's smooth, he added milk and ice and used a shaker instead of the vitamix and still had a smooth shake. This is a tasty meal replacement for not many calories, especially if mixed with skim or 1% milk.

The pro source is why concentrate and soy lecithin.

4.0 out of 5 stars Solid construction, one rod, two shelves, June 23, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
When Jim and I were looking at our house, to buy, we looked at the wide open kitchen, beautiful windows, great back yard, tons of upstairs closets, and somehow managed to miss there is not one single closet or storage space down stairs, except a little sort of pantry under the stairs and the kitchen cabinets. Not one coat closet, or anything. So we have become, over the years, collectors of items to store our stuff, raincoats, umbrellas, sweaters, boots, etc.

The gladiator garage works storage is sort of a hybrid, strong and solid enough for the garage but with a rod and two shelves. Despite what the picture shows this only comes with 1 hanging rod and two shelves, the company would happily sell you more, of course.

The construction is extremely solid. We can adjust the shelves and rod to our needs. There are adjustable feet, nice since a lot of garages, ours included, aren't the most level. No wobbling here.

At at 72"x 36"x 24" and 140 lbs this is big, It holds a lot but takes a lot of room. The instructions, as with many instructions these days, leave something to be desired, but it's doable. On a cuss and rant scale it was about a 2 1/2.
