We needed a replacement carafe quickly, and while shopping for this item locally at the big discount chain store, we could not find a Krups replacement, but found a "One All" universal carafe (GL312) that is shaped very similarly. Because the One All was immediately available and was half the price (a little over $10) of this Krups, we took a chance and bought that one, and it works great in our old Krups coffee maker. It comes with two types of lids and an adapter. I'm sure this Krups carafe would work great as well, and that's what I was looking for, but wanted to share the info on the locally available alternate in case someone needed one very quickly and couldn't find this Krups carafe. I rated it 4 stars instead of 5 because it is so expensive (currently over $21 here on amazon).
Yes, I know I'm bending a rule by "reviewing" a product I couldn't find, which I wouldn't normally do, but I thought the info on the alternate available at WM might be helpful enough to someone needing an immediate replacement to warrant doing so. (Gotta have that morning coffee!)
I ordered this 9-stick cornstick pan to supplement my mother's 7-stick pan which I now have. I re-seasoned the pan before use until it was shiny black, and used a little canola oil in each section when I used it. The cornsticks fell out easily, and turned out identically to the ones cooked in my old original pan. The amount of cornbread batter for an 8 or 9 inch iron skillet fills both of my cornstick pans. Nothing is as good as a well-seasoned cast iron skillet or cornstick pan for baking cornbread! I've ordered another for a gift....Read more
I bought this item locally, so I knew its small size. It is good for making a grilled cheese sandwich with standard sliced bread. It probably works for frying an egg, although I've not used it for that, and it seems it might spatter and would be difficult to get a spatula under the egg to turn it. It's quality cast iron, which I like, but is too small to fully cover my smallest stove element. I always season new cast iron even if it's pre-seasoned, and I've had no problem with bread or cheese sticking, using a small amount of butter. The sides are very shallow, so although a few small breakfast sausage links would fit, there would be too much grease spatter. Because, for me, its uses are so limited, I'm rating it only 4 stars. Other pieces of cast iron cookware are much more versatile, but this item works for certain things....Read more
This review is for the tiny 3.5 inch iron skillet. I am rating it 5 stars because it is exactly what I expected, a miniature iron skillet to hang on the wall near my stove. It is an authentic Lodge iron skillet, just very tiny. I cannot imagine using it to cook anything, but I did not want it for that. I seasoned it again in the oven so that it would be blacker, like the larger iron cookware that I use. Cracker Barrel also has tiny 3.5-inch Lodge iron skillets, but they have cutesy sayings molded into them, and I didn't want that. The one sold on amazon is just as shown, a plain little miniature.
To use for cooking, the minimum size that is practical for me is the 6-inch round skillet, and that's a very small skillet. I use my 8-inch and 10-inch iron skillets most often.
I enjoyed reading this book and learning some thought-provoking history from it. I read it on the recommendation of a Christian friend, along with several reviews and some comments on a few reviews. Apparently the book is controversial to some because the author presents God's warning to Israel in Isaiah 9:10 as also a direct warning to the USA. The theological controversy surrounding that does not concern me. Whether the quoted verse foretells future events in the USA or not, and whether the supporting material represents coincidence or divine intervention, it nevertheless presents a valuable lesson for America: Return to God if you are to continue to be so richly blessed. It's also interesting stuff.
While parts of the book are repetitious, much of the material was new and fascinating to me, especially in the last half of the book. I found the parts about St. Paul's Chapel particularly so. It's also amazing (or maybe not) that highly placed politicians have blithely quoted Scripture without bothering to check context even one or two sentences before or after, and therefore didn't have a clue what they were actually saying in their speeches. I suppose the positive to that is at least they were still willing to occasionally use a passage from the Bible in recent times.
The book is written as a fictional story about a writer who meets a prophet. However, the historical material presented within the story is, according to the author, fact, and the book has many reference notes. The few things I took the time to check were true. Personally, I did not feel that the author was making the controversial claims alleged in some reviews. I recommend reading the book, taking its lesson to heart, and deciding for yourself whether the controversy is important or not.
This movie is certainly not for the squeamish, but it's very thought provoking. I thought the actors did a marvelous job portraying their characters, and I enjoyed the movie, if "enjoy" is the right word. The portrayal of the subject matter is perhaps over the top, but comparable things have undoubtedly been done in times of war. (Google the recently deceased serial killer Night Stalker and read what may have influenced him when he was 12. Granted, that was done by an individual, not an agency.)
I like movies that keep one guessing until the end, but this movie unfortunately keeps you guessing beyond the (none-)ending. There is enough make-up-your-own-mind material within this movie that it didn't need more of the same at the end. It just seemed a cop-out to me, but I'd like to see the DVD and view the alternate ending. I may buy it for that reason. I watched the movie for free on Crackle.
This movie does present both sides of a very difficult issue. What is justifiable when literally millions of lives are at stake? Do we ourselves then become as awful as the enemy, just on a much smaller scale? No easy answers there.
I recently purchased several of these from another "Christian book" online seller for gifts and for myself, and these appear to be top quality Bibles. They were available at an excellent price as well. The ebony Renaissance leather is the best I've been able to find on a Bible anywhere, and I've looked at many websites. It's smooth, soft, and very supple, making the cover very flexible. It lies open nicely. This is not a study or reference Bible, but it does have a presentation page, preface, a few footnotes, concordance, and some maps in back. It's in well spaced double-column format. The print is not large size, but I can easily read it. The description on the other seller's page says 7 pt. type, but it seems slightly larger than that to me, but I have no way of measuring it. The words of Christ are in red. It is a personal sized, thinline Bible, about 8.5 x 5.75 x 1". The edges of the pages are silver and it has a ribbon bookmark.
Another plus is that this is the best-selling 1984 NIV translation, not the less accurate, more generic 2011 revision. The 1984 NIV will probably become unavailable later, so I was very glad I found this one. I prefer the more accurate, specific language version. Regardless, the NIV is a contemporary language translation and is easy to read.
This is an unusually beautiful NIV Bible and I like everything about it. Slightly larger print might be an improvement for those with vision problems, but then it would not be a thinline edition.
This is a great compact Bible and a good value for its quality. The soft pink is beautiful with the embossed brown trim. It's not babyish and is suitable for all ages. The cover is good quality simulated leather and is soft, supple, and doesn't look or feel cheap. The flexible cover lets it lie open nicely, and the print size and layout are very readable for average vision. The box states it has 8 1/4 pt. type, which in a larger Bible would be standard print. It is "large print" only in the context of being in a compact Bible, as those usually have only 6 or 7-pt type (confusing). The dimensions are only about 6 x 4.25 x 1.25". The words of Christ are in red. This Bible has features that sometimes aren't included in a compact edition, such as a presentation page, maps, concordance, and other additions. The ribbon bookmark is also pink and the edges are not gilded.
I wanted an HCSB translation because our Sunday School class uses it, and I've read positive things about this translation. It's done in contemporary language and is easy to read and understand. I have other Bibles but this one is becoming one of my favorites, so pretty and convenient to keep in my purse. It is also available in several other cover colors. I like everything about this little Bible and may order a few more for gifts.
I ordered this edition because I wanted to be able to easily compare the New King James and the New International translations side by side. Although it's pricey, I am mostly pleased with it. The similar one with a brown cover is less expensive. I wish I'd seen that one before I ordered, or ordered a regular size rather than a compact edition. The font is smaller and less bold than I anticipated, but my older eyes can read it in strong light. The box states "small type" and it is. For the book's size and considering it contains two complete translations of the Bible, the print is OK if you are aware that it's small. The fuller description on another site says it has 7-pt type. The words of Christ are not in red. Also, it is not "leather bound" as amazon states; it's simulated leather, but very nice quality. It's supple and the open Bible lies flat, and it doesn't have a plastic look or feel. I actually like this cover material better than the stiffer bonded leather, and high quality leather covers are hard to find. It has a double column format, and except for the poetic books, the verses are usually shown in paragraph form rather than each verse starting on a new line. This saves a lot of space but makes the print appear more crowded. The NIV sections are the revised 2011 NIV version. I prefer the 1984 NIV for its greater accuracy of translation, but this has the newer NIV. It has a preface, a ribbon marker, and silver gilded edges but no presentation page or concordance. The dimensions are about 7.5 x 5.5 x 1.25", so it's very easy to carry. All in all, this is a good quality, attractive compact side by side Bible, but others of similar quality are available at a lower price. Also, amazon's description should be more accurate and more detailed.
Re translations: I've looked at many comparisons of the most popular translations of the Bible recently, and the NKJV is said to be a slightly more accurate, word for word translation and a little higher reading level than the NIV. It retains much of the traditional beautiful style of the original KJV but in more contemporary English. The NIV is a more thought for thought translation using contemporary language, and is said to be a little easier to read and understand. Both are said to be good translations of the original texts, as are also the NASB and HCSB translations. The 1984 NIV has been the best-selling translation in the US in recent years.
This review is for the Ameribag Healthy Back Bag, size XS. As another reviewer noted, it's very helpful to go to the ameribag website to compare sizes and styles and for additional details, but shop here for better prices. :) Although this is the XS bag, it holds about as much as a medium sized purse. (This is not one of the little bagletts.) I especially love it for travel and wouldn't want to carry around anything bigger. It won't hold a sweater, well at least not along with all your other items, but almost anything else you'd need should fit. My regular Kindle Fire in its cloth case fits with no problem. The XS is 15" high. The next size, S, is 17" which would be a good bit bigger overall. I like the XS best although their website says the S is the most popular size.
The leather is beautiful, very supple, and the bag seems to be very well made. It's not heavy, and the design of the bag distributes weight and makes it very easy to shoulder carry. The zippers are heavy duty with leather pulls, and the strap is adjustable. The main compartment has a double zipper so it can be opened anywhere along the zipper length. It has four outside pockets and seven inside pockets. There is an easy-open keyclip just inside, and another closed ring at the very top for attaching something that has a clip. Large sets of keys are more out of the way there. The inside lining is a silver gray color, which might not seem to matter but really makes items much easier to see and find.
Worn as intended over the shoulder, it can fit under my coat if it's not fully packed. The shape snuggles to your body, and the snugger you make the shoulder strap, the lighter the bag feels. For overseas where pickpockets have to be considered, I like to carry it crossbody in front for security. It's not designed for that, but with the strap extended all the way, I can make it work. I'm short, so it might not work for a taller person as a front crossbody bag.
More details on the pockets: Outside, there is a pocket under the velcro flap on one side, a narrower open pocket on the back for something like a travel umbrella, sunglasses, or water bottle, and a zip pocket with an open velcro pocket behind it on the other side. Inside, the left side is divided into three open slip pockets--a narrow one, a pen pocket, and a larger pocket. At the back there is a gusseted pocket about the size of a small water bottle. Inside on the right side is a large full-width zip pocket, with an open pocket behind it, and another open pocket above it. At first all these pockets were confusing to use, but once you decide what goes in each, they keep the bag very organized and easy to use. The bottom of the bag is deep and spacious. It's a well designed, top quality bag.
