Costco Simpson Pressure Washer

Costco Simpson Pressure Washer

In three years, I went from the failed Task Force Electric Pressure Washer to the Costco Simpson Pressure Washer with a Honda Engine. I’ve been without a pressure washer for two years thanks to the extremely poor quality of the Task Force. The Task Force worked good enough the first couple of times to make me realize how valuable it is to own a pressure washer. Just make sure you get one that lasts. The See the Review

Oster Digital Toaster Oven

Oster Digital Toaster Oven

The Oster Digital Toaster Oven pictured to the left is the third Toaster Oven appliance that I’ve owned in the past four years. My previous two toaster  (The Europro and Black & Decker) are in the trash because they were both lousy for mostly the same reasons: They burned toast, they were difficult to use and they were messy. In fact, the Black & Decker went out with the garbage simply because some butter got inside See the Review

Kenmore Refrigerator

Kenmore Refrigerator

I absolutely love the new Kenmore side-by-side refrigerator I bought from Sears. Maybe I’m just so badly, mentally-scarred from my prior Kitchen-Aid refrigerator that I don’t fully recognize the difference between good and bad, but this new Kenmore exceeds my expectations in every way. Well, okay I do expect a freezer to keep frozen foods below 30 degrees or so – and I also expect eggs, cheese, lunch meats, etc., in the refrigerator side to See the Review

Hunter Sprinklers

Hunter Sprinklers

Getting Familiar with Hunter Sprinklers I became familiar with Hunter Sprinklers and heads when they became easier to find then Rainbird products. Years ago, it was hard to find anything other than Rainbird sprinklers at my local Home Depot stores. I was reluctant to replace my old sprinkler heads with another brand, not because I loved Rainbird, but because I was not familiar with any other brands. Other brands of Lawn Sprinkler Systems. Replacement heads See the Review

Mr Coffee Keurig

Mr Coffee Keurig

This brand new Mr Coffee Keurig machine I just bought at a Costco is a Single Cup Brewer game changer. Why? Well, for starters, the Mr Coffee from Costco is about half the price of other single-cup Keurig brewers and it comes with 20 K-Cups for 20 cups of coffee. This is one of those products that I love outside of the box so quickly and unreservedly that I almost hate to continue using it, See the Review

Tassimo vs Keurig

Tassimo vs Keurig

This Tassimo vs Keurig Single Cup Coffee maker showdown is a result of my life-long desire to enjoy the best tasting coffee at home without the muss, fuss, mess and expenses of a fancy Starbucks Type Heavy Duty coffee brewer or without having to drive to a Starbucks and wait in line behind phony coffee drinkers. Haven’t you ever wished you could just make just one 8 ounce cup of really hot, strong coffee at See the Review

Intermatic Timer

Intermatic Timer

Timers for Lights by Intermatic I became a light-timer fanatic a few years ago when looking for a convenient way to turn the the Christmas Lights on and off a few seasons ago. I got out one of those old mechanical timers that I used many years ago for turning a living room lamp on and off from 5:00 to 10:00 PM During the winter hours. mechanical light timers have always been a pain for me See the Review

Oil Filled Electric Heaters

Oil Filled Electric Heaters

Oil Filled Electric Heaters are an efficient way to heat up a room. This winter, I decided to do some research on energy efficient space heaters for my drafty home. Unless, I turn my furnace thermostat up to 71 degrees, there are 4 rooms in the house which are just a tad too cool to stay comfortable sitting in for long periods of time. The Den, Office, Upstairs Vacant Bed Room and the finished Basement See the Review

EdenPure or Amish Heaters

EdenPure or Amish Heaters

EdenPure or Amish Heaters? We’ve all heard about EdenPure Heaters, but there is some strong competition out there.

The new, Infrared Quartz technology has made portable room heaters a serious option as a way for lowering your heating bill, in addition to providing zones of warmth, even the most heat-efficient See the Review

Kindred Sinks Review

Kindred Sinks Review

  I’ve gotta be honest, Kindred Sinks are quality through and through. Quality doesn’t come cheap, however. A double-sided, stainless steel Kindred sink will set you back $400 – $500. Fortunately, if you’re in the market for one, you can find them much cheaper. Check out the auction sales below on Kindred Sink Products. If you’re still undecided, you can scroll down below the auction sales and read about my own personal experience with my See the Review

Insinkerator 444 Replaced by Evolution Sink Disposal

Insinkerator 444 Dies This morning, my InSinkerator 444 Disposal Unit conked out. It made some electrical humming noises, but the motor wouldn’t turn. I followed the trouble shooting guide on the InSinkerator website; turning the key and pressing the button at the bottom of the unit, but to no avail. Also, I smelled electrical fumes coming from the InSinkerator 444. It was most certainly bad. I looked up the serial number on the InSinkerator website See the Review
