4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyed the heck out of it, June 8, 2016

Very entertaining read, with an engaging central character. Frequently funny, fast-paced, with a few twists before a satisfying conclusion.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best white popcorn I've found, May 4, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I'm a big fan of white popcorn; I make it, with oil, in a Cuisinart popperCuisinart CPM-700 EasyPop Popcorn Maker, Red and it consistently gives a crisp, flavorful result. Emphasis on "crisp" -- I've generally found that with hot-air poppers, the result is all too often somewhat soft/rubbery.

This, however, is the *best* white popcorn I've found. Not only is the result crisp, but it pops 20% larger than most white popcorn, and there are almost no "old maids" left in the bottom of the bowl. Darn good stuff.


Slow Feed Dog Bowl - Fun Interactive Pet Feeder - Bloat Stop Pet Feeder by SLOWBOWL® (Blue)
Slow Feed Dog Bowl - Fun Interactive Pet Feeder - Bloat Stop Pet Feeder by SLOWBOWL® (Blue)

4.0 out of 5 stars It works well, for a larger dog, March 28, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
We have a 70-lb lab who was typically finishing her bowl of kibble before I could finish filling her water dish.

The first "slow feed" bowl I tried (Outward Hound Kyjen 51004 Fun Feeder Slow Feed Interactive Bloat Stop Dog Bowl, Small, Orange) was too difficult for her -- we feed her the "large bites" Science Diet, and the grooves in the bowl were too small for her snout, and the spiral pattern left her with nothing to push against with her tongue. I actually had to help her get the last few bites out...she was just pushing them around the bowl, and getting a bit frustrated!

This bowl is working well, though; I estimate that it takes her 3-4 times as long to finish her food, but she doesn't have any difficulty doing it.

The only downcheck from my perspective -- and it's really a small nit, a matter of personal preference -- is that the smooth shape of the bowl prevents it from being easily picked up by hand. There are two small "cutouts" in the bottom to facilitate pickup, but if you try to grasp it anywhere else it just slips out of your hand. I am also going to have to go back to my workshop and develop a new "stand" for the bowl (our girl is getting old and she's better off with her bowl raised up a bit from the floor; the shape of this bowl -- with the base larger in diameter than the rim -- makes it unsuitable for placement in a round "holder". The shape gives it good stability on the floor and the soft rubber rim discourages movement of the bowl across the floor, so those are good things, really.)

3.0 out of 5 stars Good container, a little too small for a 5-lb bag, November 22, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is an EXCELLENT container, well-built and shaped. And the "leveler" built in seems like a good idea (though it runs the risk of getting in the way a bit.

I only give this 3 stars because, though it will fit a 5-lb bag of flour (as advertised) it BARELY fits...in fact, one has to shake the container a bit to get the flour to settle in order to fit the last bit, and it's tough to do this without making a bit of a mess. I bought these to replace old Rubbermaid containers that were ugly and clunky...but I could dump a 5-lb bag of flour in one with ease, even if it wasn't 100% empty already.

I'll learn to live with these, they really are quality containers, but the size is a little disappointing.

Very good hot-oil popcorn machine; replaced an earlier model that we decided to leave at our vacation home. Can make two large batches of yummy popcorn in <10 minutes, with little effort.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing given prior works, August 25, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I have read, with considerable enjoyment, several of Steven Konkoly's prior series (Perseid Collapse especially, also the Black Flagged series.) While I've sometimes been uncomfortable with his enthusiasm for weaponry, I've found these works to be credible and well thought out given the basic premises. In particular the characters are mostly believable -- not particularly well-developed, perhaps (and a couple of over-the-top bad guys) but overall within the realm of possibility.

I was unable to get very far into this book. The characters are caricature-ish, and the plot premise is borderline absurd. Moreover, the presentation of national/global political events and, especially, economic events is straight out of Glenn Beck/Fox News. If that is your thing, go for it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good case, great price, April 6, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is a very good bumper case for an EXCELLENT price. I paid Apple's $30 for a bumper case for my iPhone 4S and it was pretty chintzy...only protected the edges, and didn't do that especially well. This case wraps around the edges and the back, with extra padding at the corners, plus it's clear...let's the phone's color come through. And at 1/3 the Apple price.

Only downcheck is that the plastic covering the edge buttons (volume, sleep) makes pressing them a little stiff...not much of a problem, but noticeable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exceeds expectations, April 6, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I bought this as a portable coffee maker for an extended road trip, and it far exceeded my expectations. I now use it interchangeably with my home espresso machine. It's a bit fussy -- there are a few more steps, and so using the espresso machine is somewhat quicker -- but the coffee it makes is really excellent: long on flavor, short on bitterness.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great cooler -- efficient and easy to carry., April 6, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Bought this as a mid-sized cooler for an extended road trip. It works extremely well -- insulation is remarkably efficient compared to rigid plastic coolers I've had, and the carry handle and over-the-shoulder strap both work very well.
