3.0 out of 5 stars Sizing is good - thin fabric, Aug. 6 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Sizing is good - I prefer aprons to be on the large side. Plenty of strap to tie even a thicker waist. Fabric is a lot thinner than I was expecting. Because it's made in India of 100% cotton, I would not put it in the dryer despite the label instructions. This is a cheap apron - you get what you pay for.

3.0 out of 5 stars Reads fahrenheit only, Aug. 6 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The design of this thermometer is good - the suction cups swivel so that you can hang the thermometer on either side, making it readable from either side. One of the biggest drawbacks for me is that this only gives temperature in F. There is no switch to make it read in C.

4.0 out of 5 stars good coffee, but hazelnut flavoured, July 26 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I agree with the other reviewers, I was not expecting a flavoured coffee. It is good coffee, but I don't like flavoured coffees, so would not buy this one again. I willl say however that the only fault is in not advertising it as such and listing the flavouring in the description. Either that or a large batch of this coffee was mislabelled since this company sells other nut flavoured coffees. Otherwise the coffee is smooth, definitely low acid and those that like a hazelnut flavour would love this coffee.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love it!, July 13 2015

Love this watch. High quality, nice looks. A bit on the big side, but I knew that going in, having checked the dimensions. Strap is long enough - have regular sized wrist but a lot of the straps out there are way too short.

1.0 out of 5 stars Do yourself a favour and don't buy, July 13 2015
Pros - lightweight, takes up no room, no need for a hose reel or anythign like that.

Con - does not expand to the full length given on box. 75' hose maybe expanded to 50' max and 50' hose maybe got to 25'
- almost impossible to use with sprinklers - because there is decreased water pressure with a sprinkler on, full expansion is not attained and then no expansion at all if the water isn't flowing through the hose...which means you have to have the water running to get the sprinkler over to the far side of your yard and then have to figure out how to put the sprinkler down without getting wet
- then, if you run any water in the house, the water pressure drops enough that the hose contracts and the sprinkler ends up back at the house
- water flow is not strong enough to run a nozzle properly
- instructions say to keep out of the sun - pretty hard to do that
- one of mine developed a kink or knot in the inside tubing near the sprinkler and when I got that straightened out, it sprung a 4" leak about halfway down the hose - and no way to fix them - so ended up taking both back to store and getting rid of them - store said they'd had almost all of them returned

4.0 out of 5 stars Like the style, Feb. 3 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This was a case for a new phone my employer provided. It was the same design I had on my old phone and really liked. The top flipping down gives you extra holding power when using the phone. The "bling" looks nice, but my complaint about it is that it's just glued on glitter. So I suspect that after a short time, the "bling" will be all rubbed off. The good thing is that it doesn't seem to litter too much glitter all over the place. And one funny note - the closure is magnetic, and occasionally I've left my phone on a file cabinet and been surprised to ahve it "stick" to the cabinet. It might actually be strong enough to stick the phone to a vertical magnetic surface!

2.0 out of 5 stars Strap peels, Feb. 3 2015
I loved the look of this watch and liked the watch itself and the way it kept time. However, the strap is garbage Within a very short time, the strap started peeling and looking unsightly. The strap has a clear plastic coating that peels off, starting where the buckle is and anywhere there is wear. It looks good for a short time and then once it starts peeling, it catches on clothing, hair and looks awful.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun!, Jan. 11 2015
These are fun and challenging to do. The dots are colour coded to sections of numbers, which helps since the numbers are very small. My only complaint is that some of the colours are hard to distinguish. I have good eyesight, but went to the dollar store and picked up a sheet magnifier to make sure I found the right dots. You'll also need very good light, and a straight edge - a small metal ruler will do.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love the scent, Jan. 11 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I love the scent of this lotion. It's very soft and light and not obtrusive. I have used other green tea lotions, but most are no longer available, so was very glad to find this. This is a large bottle (500ml) for a good price.

5.0 out of 5 stars It DOES work!, Jan. 11 2015
I had been asking around to try and find someone who had tried this gizmo. Without any luck. I finally caved in and got one. It works great! The middle part vents the steam to prevent boil over and I use it mostly on rice. The foamy rice water doesn't even get to the top of the pot. I have a glass top stove, so this will save a ton of clean up in the kitchen. Note that the guard has to hang over the edge of the pot, so make sure you get one big enough.

Couple weeks later - I continue to use this with great success. A large almost full pot of potatoes does not boil over, though the "overflow" does go into the space above the guard. And, I used it on applesauce where it also prevented the sticky fruit boil over. Love this thing!
