Blendtec D675C3214A1A-AMAZON Designer 675 with WildSide+ and Mini WildSide Jar, Charcoal
Blendtec D675C3214A1A-AMAZON Designer 675 with WildSide+ and Mini WildSide Jar, Charcoal

5.0 out of 5 stars The ultimate blender, June 25, 2016
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
If you are looking for one of the most powerful blenders for your home, then this is it. It is powered by a 5 speed 3.8 horsepower motor. There are two containers: The Wild Side Jar and the Mini Wild Side Jar.

This has 5 presets including an additional 10 second mode or 10 second burst mode: Smoothie, Juice mode, soup mode, cleaning, and a mode for frozen yogurt. The control panel is an illuminated touch screen. Additionally, a slide control allows for adjusting the power.

Cleaning involves using a drop of dishwashing liquid, and then running the clean mode (see attached pics of suds). Following that, it is simply rinsed and stored in the upright position.

Only a few recipes are in the included recipe book, but there are dozens of recipes through their website to include drinks, smoothies, soup, baby food, desserts, various spreads such as peanut butter and even traditional hummus. The instructions are straightforward and take very little preparation time. On the website, the number of calories, number of servings and the nutritional breakdown is provided. Numerous preparations for the health conscious, include antioxidant shakes, vegetarian or vegan based soups and salsa. This has the capability to make hot chocolate or soup right out of the blender.

One of the first items that I made was something similar to an Orange Julius drink. My daughter loves mocha frappe so it was a big favorite. The advantage of this level of blender is the more uniform consistency of drinks: particularly, smoothies. This can also be used for making frozen cocktails. I haven't tried brownies, pizza dough or making bread dough, yet.

Operation is simple given the intuitive, lighted controls. Whether it's nuts, ice or the pineapple core, edible items are no match for the power of this blender.

For the construction, it is designed to be off and running from the start. This has very few components to manipulate. It is a simple and elegant design. The footprint is not much bigger than your standard sized blenders. The lids are comprised of two components: Clear plastic handle and the softer but relatively secure lid. The blades are integrated into the base of the jar, and they are thick/beefy. When compared to its competition, this is more powerful and has a nice clean technically advanced design (backlighting and touch screen controls as opposed to knobs). This is also covered by an 8 year warranty, whereas the competition has a 7 year warranty.

For operation, the noise level is about average. The base is solid and virtually non-slip on our countertops. Unlike conventional blenders, the only components to come apart are the lids. There is no need to remove the blades, a base, and gasket from the jar.

Of the Blendtec lineup, this in the middle tier. A higher level model runs right over $1000, and there is a commercial version for restaurants. For the casual chef or baker, this has the right combination of features already.

This may be last and only blender that you will ever need. This is one of the best of the best.

Two thumbs up.

Oliver Footwear 6-Inch Lace Up Boot-55246
Oliver Footwear 6-Inch Lace Up Boot-55246
Price: $141.71

5.0 out of 5 stars Most comfortable, protective shoes I have ever tried, June 22, 2016
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
These are the most comfortable work boots that I have tried. Prior to this, I thought that Wolverine or Carhart we at the upper echelon. This set goes beyond the average protection: Electrical protection, puncture protection, water/fluid protection (oil, acid, fat, alkaline) and impact protection.

The inserts are removable and have comfortable cushioning for comfort. Despite the ironclad feel of the soles, the soles are flexible enough to walk on various surfaces without the typical stiffness of industrial type of shoes. The upper material is a fluid resistant leather, and the heel/toe box are reinforced with rubber overlays. The 6 inch ankle protection is comfortable, supportive and protective.

Despite all of the protection, these are a relatively light set of boots feeling more like middle weights, as opposed to the bulkier heavy weighted shoes that I have tried. The weight, balance and flexibility feel more like hiking boots. Though you don't necessarily need to break these in, it will depend upon they type of socks used. These shoes do feel a half size bigger than the stated size (this sixe ten is as roomy as my usual 10.5).

The soles have firm treads but they can be slippery in some wet environments.

The laces are high quality and the steel wraparound hooks provide for a secure feel (as opposed to open type hooks that many hiking boots have).

These are Cadillacs compared to what I have work. Excellent set of work boots.


Winix 70BT Dehumidifier, 70 pint

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent dehumidifier, June 22, 2016
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I have several rooms in the basement, and each of the areas have a dehumidifier. I am replacing Frigidaire dehumidifier which is about 4 years old, now.

This performs 70 pints of dehumidifying per day, which is necessary for the size of the room (30 x 15 feet). I have a drain that I connect my dehumidifier so that I never have to empty a tank. The beauty of this particular unit is that the drain inside the unit, bypasses the tank and just connects to a hose. The tank is easy to remove and the design prevents spillage that other competitors do not have. There is a handle that allows for easy transport, if needed, with a 14.4 pint capacity. Depending upon your settings, if you're not connected to a drainage pipe, then expect to empty this daily.

This is simple to use, and I just use the automatic functions. The filter is conveniently located just about the collection tank, and it is easy to remove and clean. There are three levels of fan operation, and it is whisper quiet. Because this is about 70 pounds, it is handy to have the smooth rolling wheels.

Construction-wise, this is solid and stout in size. I have a shelf upon which I place my dehumidifier upon for proper drainage. The instructions are clear and easy to understand.

I was glad that they packed this with only two caps of styrofoam, as this is not recyclable material.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stylish, well designed cover, June 22, 2016
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This is a high quality, stylish cover for your fire pit.

The canvas cover is waterproof. To secure your cover, particularly on windy days, there are elastic cords, as well as buckle designed nylon straps.

The material is heavy and durable in construction. Best of all is that this has a lifetime warranty.

Overall, it's a well designed addition to your patio or outdoor area.


Tilley Endurables T3 Traditional Canvas Hat
Tilley Endurables T3 Traditional Canvas Hat
Price: $77.95 - $83.95

5.0 out of 5 stars Versatile, durable hat, June 22, 2016
It is hard to justify paying a lot for a hat but this is no ordinary hat. It is warrantied for life and you have protection against loss. This floats on water for a short period allowing for retrieval.

The hat is vented all around. There are snaps on the top side of the brim for partial coverage or entire coverage. An adjustable cord allows for proper fit, retention or for hanging. The hat is foldable, compressible and can be rolled for storage.

For the size, it is light weight. It is great for Sun protection, helps with glare and is a timeless, stylish hat. Whether you are hiking, touring, working, or playing golf, you cannot go wrong with this.

I have had this for 3 years. It still looks and feels great.


Aquabot ABTRTR1 Turbo T In-Ground Robotic Swimming Pool Cleaner with Remote Control and Aqua Buggy Cart
Aquabot ABTRTR1 Turbo T In-Ground Robotic Swimming Pool Cleaner with Remote Control and Aqua Buggy Cart

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent assistant for maintaining the pool, June 21, 2016
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This is a remote controlled robotic cleaner with a two button, three directional wireless remote. Compared to my T2 this does the pressure washing but at a marginally lower rate of 70 versus 75 gallons per minute.

I have a 12,000 gallon gunite in ground pool. It has a sun shelf at one end, a bench at another end, and a waterfall that has a bench under the water.

This is noticeably larger than my Aquabot Classic but identical to my T2. The operation is the same except that this has a continuous run or programmable timer integrated into the AC adapter. The floating power cable is quite long (60 feet), and it will handle nearly any sized pool. I use an extension cord for maximum flexibility of the power cable that actually goes into the pool.

This has a power jet function which not only scrubs but rinses the pool surface. It has a more effective cleaning mechanism for the floor. Because of the size, the Classic is a better wall scrubber and waterline climber, out of the box, but I have not modified the floatation internals to make it more stable (included).

Cleaning this robot is relatively easy but the bag/filter can still cling to small debris. I have tried cleaning when the bag is dry versus wet. Dry is easier but messy. Power nozzle/sprays from a garden hose is less messy with fine debris.

This came with a Four Wheeled caddy. The assembly of the caddy takes about 5 minutes to attach the handle/support to the base (4 screws total).

The AC adapter is not integrated into the caddy function. It doesn't have a holder for the remote control, either, though. That is bizarre. It carries the robot and it has a set of hooks to wrap the submersible electrical cables neatly. It Makes for convenient storage, but it is noisy because of the hard plastic design of the wheels.

Coiling up the cable is a chore, to me, and it takes quite a long time (10 minutes) if it is tangled up.

Overall, it is a solid piece of electronics. Because of the bag system, it does filter out more debris than compartment based robots.


Night Therapy Easy To Assemble SmartBase Mattress Foundation/Platform Bed Frame/Box Spring Replacement, Queen
Night Therapy Easy To Assemble SmartBase Mattress Foundation/Platform Bed Frame/Box Spring Replacement, Queen
Offered by Sleep Revolution
Price: $90.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Solid, stable frame and box spring alternative, June 20, 2016
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I wanted a frame and box spring for my Queen-sized memory foam mattress. When I saw the option to have a combination frame and box spring alternative I was excited about the simplicity and convenience.

From unboxing to assembly, as this is my third, it took about 25 minutes. I did use pliers to tighten the wingnuts in the central column since I didn't feel comfortable with just using the included tool. The mattress crossbars required no tools and the plastic ends make for a perfect/stable fit.

This is stable and noiseless. There is more than ample room for storage under the bed. The legs are non-slip, so you have to be sure to place this where you want during the assembly process.

Overall, it's a solid piece of furniture for a minimalist option with a mattress.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent carry on bag with wheels, June 16, 2016
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This is a nice weekend or carry on bag. It is quite spacious for its size. The inner compartment is not subdivided. There is an outer zippered space for documents, small items, or electronics. Unfortunately it doesn't have an integrated key ring that many modern bags have.

The carry handle is comfortable. However, there is a cart handle of the load is heavier. The cart handle tucks into a zippered compartment at one end of the bag.

The overall weight is not heavy, and the construction of the pull handle is made of aluminum. The body is made of a nylon, shell that should be splatter proof but not eater resistant because of the zipper design. The zipper is a high quality zipper and has a smooth feel/action.

Excellent choice for a travel bag, gym bag, or weekend bag.

Two thumbs up!

5.0 out of 5 stars Comfortable, industrial or work boots with steel toe protection and a hiker/sneaker-like feel, June 15, 2016
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This is a pair of industrial boots configured just like hiking boots. The rubber soles are water proof and slip proof in oil. There is a lot of grip also because of the contoured, tire-like threaded design of the soles. Even with the treads, they are easier to clean off. I was hesitant of a man made leather upper but they are not absorbent like regular leather would be, resisting stains. My model is black and gray, also a contributing factor to resisting stains.

The mesh upper allows for a lightweight and cool feel from ventilation. The steel toe component has a generous space, which is essential since a tight toe box is uncomfortable. The nylon laces are secure and use eyelets, as opposed to hooks, which are much safer for preventing loose ends that may pose a tripping hazard.

There are large nylon loops on the ankle and on the tongue that allow for an easier entry into the shoes. They also allow for easier removal.

What sets this apart from the usual industrial boots is the sneaker-like feel. This would work great in a construction, industrial or general purpose setting.


Guard Dog Security ProShield 2 Bulletproof Backpack (NIJ Level IIIA with Multimedia Connections), Black

5.0 out of 5 stars Great multimedia backpack with Class IIIA Kevlar., June 15, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I was looking for a heavy duty backpack for travel that had a lot of compartments. This has more pockets than conventional backpacks and it is designed for comfort. The carry handle on top is a steel cable, reinforced with plastic. The shoulder straps have a carry pocket for electronics, a strap for sunglasses and it has plastic round loops for pulling the shoulder straps for fit. The contact points are reinforced with gel foam. The back of the pack is also reinforced with gel foam.

The sides have vented pockets and zippered pockets on each side.

The rearmost division has two outer zippered pockets. The inner pocket has a key ring, zippered pocket, 3 uncovered small pockets, 3 pen pockets, and 1 medium sized pocket.

The middle division has a large space and ventilation. The forward most division, closest to your back has a compartment for an MP3 player that actually has a cable connecting to the shoulder strap so no cable is exposed. These days with Bluetooth, that isn't necessary. This is also where the laptop and files or books can go.

The weight is no more than bags you may see by other brands, and the biggest feature is a Class IIIA ballistic Kevlar, enough to withstand 44 Magnum or 357 Sig. If you need class III (rifle such as 5.56 mm) or Class IV (30-06), then you'll need a SAPI plate which is not included. It will protect you against a handgun, though. You can use this to duck under cover when police arrive. In the day and age of bad goings on, you're better off with a little more physical protection. Don't get me wrong, this is a great stand alone backpack packed with more comfort features than the trendy North Face, Patagonia or Eddie Bauer brand backpacks.

Highly, highly highly recommend.
