Paderno World Cuisine Mandolin Vegetable Slicer
Paderno World Cuisine Mandolin Vegetable Slicer
Price: $39.95

4.0 out of 5 stars A great time saver, nice addition to any home of regular vegetable users, October 20, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Use the cap and you should be alright. Most mandolin slicers are very sharp. And this is a good thing. As long as you are careful. Definitely use the supplied spiked holder when using this slicer. Nice touches like a box to hold the removable blades. Easy to use almost right out of the box and this can be a huge time saver.

We basically eat meat and veggies now. I cut a lot of veggies for salads, stews, crock pot, etc. This is a big time save and worth the cost it sells for our household easily.

4.0 out of 5 stars Best McAfee to date, October 20, 2014
This review is from: McAfee Total Protection 2015 3 PCs
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Best McAfee to date. I like Norton, a lot. I have the 2014 Norton and it was better than any previous McAfee. The interface was better for me, more intuitive, more features that I liked and it seemed to not slow the computer down as much.

While I still like the Norton interface better, this McAfee has the best interface and best for me seems to slow the system down less than previous versions. I tend to stick with one or the other because trusted and tested virus protection is even better. If you haven't given McAfee a try lately, it seems like they are upping their game. Recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Does work, perfect for our car with a connection in trunk. Useful light and for general inflating, October 1, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Works for tires (toping off, which is most common occurrence, large inflating would be time consuming), general product inflating, and a light. Handy to have. This is nice for the occasional tire inflating but it has many more uses. Nice to have when camping if the battery inflater goes out, and a nice light. Also nice touch to have attachments in base.


Case Logic Griffith Park Plus Backpack (BOGP-115)
Case Logic Griffith Park Plus Backpack (BOGP-115)
Price: $69.95

4.0 out of 5 stars Comfortable, lots of organizing, not great extra room if laptop put in., October 1, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Very comfortable backpack, with secure spaces for tablets and small laptop. There are also numerous side pockets and organizing pouches spread throughout. The shoulder pads are very comfortable and there is a chest strap to distribute loading.

Really my only complaint is not a lot of room if laptop is kept. But with just a tablet it made a wonderful carry on, vacation backpack. Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tons of variety, very useful and creative. Tips only ATK provides., September 20, 2014
This review is from: The Make Ahead Cook (Paperback)
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Very useful, creative, well-researched book. America's Test Kitchen makes some of my most helpful and used books. Why? They test. This book is one of the most useful because we want home cooked meals and with little ones and two jobs we need to plan ahead.

The book starts going over storage containers, wraps, kitchen discoveries, prep time savers, storage 101. This is clear, concise, good pictures.

Then on to the recipes. Something for everyone. We are grain free, low sugar. But still many roasts, stews, vegetarian items, and sauces. I particularly liked the sauces as they do freeze well. Onion braised beef brisket, with a four substitution was great. Lots of different chilis. This book will be useful for years. We won't dent the recipes in one year. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good quality, improves hair quality, much better for your hair than the average shampoo, September 17, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
My favorite shampoo I've ever used. I bought this to get away from harmful, chemical filled shampoos. This has a good ingredient list and you don't need that much. It lathers up very well. I think it has helped my hair. Pleased and recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good quality, very soft and comfortable, nice logo, September 17, 2014

This is a bit more than the average t-shirt but you get a nice quality cotton and a very nice logo. Much softer than your average t-shirt. So if you want quality that looks good, I found it worth the price.

4.0 out of 5 stars Better than expected: fits overall well, good colors, details, mask great for price, September 17, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
For what I paid I am more than pleased. This is a fine costume overall and certainly for the price. I am 5'9", 175 lbs. A 33 inch waist, small or medium in shirts, but mostly small. I ordered a medium. Around waist and behind it is fine. A tad too much in the chest area but not much. It is an honest medium size.

You can see through the mask and with the mask on you are looking pretty close to Spidey. It is one piece then the mask and just a little velcro holds up the back. No spider on the bag is really the only thing not quite up there. If you want to be Spidey for Halloween, not a bad choice at all.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lots of bass and it's good. Solid, extremely comfortable headphones. This is an XL review., September 10, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
The Urbanite XL, and I did receive the XL version over the ear to review, have a lot to recommend them. First is very enjoyable bass, and a lot of it. It makes for a very energetic listening experience. But mids and treble are still there. Vocals are very accurate and pleasing but pushed a little to the back. What I found is if I make the overall volume just a bit more than I would with other headphones I enjoy the bass and the vocals.

Thankfully there is almost no sound leakage so you can enjoy these on a bus, in a library, dorm, etc. Pretty good passive noise cancellation and extremely comfortable. They look nice also with an outer cloth finish to the headband. The controls worked fine on my iPhone and iPad. The cord is like a linguine noodle and seems like it will not tangle. Not extremely long, but depending on use this might be a positive.

Overall lively and fun bass. Having more bass is pointless if not enjoyable and this is. But vocals are also still enjoyable and accurate. The XL is recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Well designed and functional, September 7, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Well designed as most OXO products are. It is functional and the little stops on each end really help keep the butter steady to help cut. Grass fed butter is a true super food. Enjoy frequently and this helps. Four stars because not particularly attractive, but still highly recommended.
