Rated 4 out of 5 by from So sad :-( Others I have tried just don't compare. I can't say that I love mowing grass, but I am very happy with this mower so far. Don't hesitate if you are on the fence with this one.The good news is that it starts with 1 pull every time, the bad news is you have to restart it several times because the chute falls off with the slightest bump. Worthless as a mulcher unless the grass is only 1/2" tall! Tech support replaced the chute after many calls and waiting one month but it did not fix the problem. Additional calls were not returned or I was cut off or put on perpetual hold. I'll be returning it and looking for something better. I got this mower about a month ago.I brought it home, took about 10-15 minutes to put it together, added gas and oil, it started on the first pull(as it still does) and I was mowing within 30 minutes! The mulching blade works perfectly, the self propell is not too slow and not too fast.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Get them.Been growing these for 10 years; nothing else comes close. Its design makes it very easy to operate and maneuver.Its size makes it a breeze to store when not needed.Number one feature for us? It's sooooooooo easy to start. \n\nTo sum it up, it is and does all that the manufacturer promised.And that, more than anything else, is what has made me a very satisfied customer.Great swing but I had to buy extensions for the chain to hook the swing up and make it a safe distance from the ground.This is a very competent machine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from In a word RUBBISHI have used Tomato seed starting formula the past 4 years and always had excellent results. I use the recommended detergent and rinse agent and the dishes come out spotless. After the cycle ends, I usually open the door so it is not completely sealed shut so the dishes dry faster. Other than some pooling of water on tops of certain dishes, everything dries completely. There is ample space and the racks provide some flexibility to accomodate different size cookware.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It seems as if the LED bulb might acutually be brighter. This is a great table lamp for the bed side table as it is tall and you get great lighting for reading even though the shade is black, plus it does not take up a lot of space on the bed side table.could not connect my garden hose to the inlet valve.i had to take off the brass fitting supplied and replace it with a plastic b& q now works.\nthe handle is shoddily made and does not work properly.the instruction manual does not explain all of the parts properly\nthe machine cleans well.having ruined several pieces hired the "professionals"they found this flooring very difficult to lay.not for the faint hearted.try something else!I bought this based on the 1 review that was there and the price. However, first hurdle was having to buy the extractor vent kit online and not at B & Q store where I bought the appliance.The fittings of the vent were incorrect and we had to improvise to make it fit.Then we put the hood up plugged it in, 30 minutes later, all the electrics in the house went off.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bought a husqvarna hedge trimmer instead online. I'd recomend sweet zukes, as they were a much higher yielder. Only problem was that limbs had a hard time holding up the abundant harvest and needed to be propped up. I plan to grow these again and have recommended it to all my friends who are tired of climbing a ladder to pick their cherry tomatoes on indeterminate vines! They expect my advice to be good because I'm a Master Gardener, and I know they's think I'm a genius if they plant Tumbler tomatoes!Sowed direct in garden with a very poor percentage of seed germinating. The number of pods per plant was also disappointing. Avoid this one.This zucchini has good growing characteristics, whether planted in rows or beds.Bush type plants produce over an extended period of time. Plants prefer a loamy well drained soil and a ph of 6.4 to 7.0.Mulching helps to control weeds and conserve moisture.Germination rates are typically 85-90%. Seeds can easily be saved from an unblemished zucchini left to mature on the plant.I have grown these at least 5 years in a row and they perform solidly here in North Texas. I grow from seed, and then get them out as early as possible.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Matches our other Frigidaire stainless steel appliances perfectly. I let them go a little longer.The beets I will let grow to maturity.But for the rest, it's me versus the bugs that seem to like the leaves as much as I do.I'd rather eat, so I harvest.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from They don't get very tall, so I planted mine in front of the pea vines and that worked well for space. After reading all the reviews, though, I decided to take the plunge. So far, it's been worth it. Grill heats up very quickly (>500 in ~10 min); cooks evenly. I live on a canyon, and it does a surprisingly good job holding a low flame (for ribs) in 20mph winds - although it has blown out once. In all, I'm very pleased and I'm enjoying using my new "toy".A basic lamp with two incandescent holders. I have replaced too many short-lived fluorescent units. You can always put a CFL in these, if you want. There is enough clearance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Both my wife and daughter suffer from asthma.However, the instructions state to drill them down to within 2" of the ground. Dreadful quality, the worst furniture we've ever bought.Will be taking back the unopened boxes for a refund.Drawer fronts only held on with rawl plugs, drawers a struggle to open and close due to stiff and jarring runners.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I can't imagine why I waited so long to purchase this tool. The disease resistance was fine after I pruned vines a foot from the ground.They went into a lull during the end of August and now as of October 1st they are starting to put on more fruit!\n\nJust a very good tomato!The Brandywine lived up to the hype in my experience.I also planted Brandy Boy hybrid this year for comparison. The Brandy Boy had the edge in production (not by much) and size of fruit.The Brandy Boy growth habits were also a bit more tame. Otherwise I couldn't tell much of a difference.\n\nThe Brandywine is a wonderfully vigorous plant that does tend to get a little wild.I gave the plant a "haircut" 2-3 times over the growing season to keep it contained on my tomato ladder.This seemed to help the plant put on fruit along with shaking the cages and gently "flicking" the blossoms. This really seemed to help with pollination.\n\nI can honestly say that the Brandywine had only slightly less fruit than my 7 other plants.I was very surprised after reading that these don't produce overly well.The plant also had 0 disease issues which was also nice!\n\nI won't describe the flavor (out of this world!) as other reviewers have described much better than I ever could.\n\nThis tomato is a great Heirloom! A Very Nice Plant Indeed!I started these as seeds indoors in late January, planted them outside according to our county extension's recommended planting calendar.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It was stress free, and very easy to put together. Its easy to use, easy to control and useful, because of the remote controlThe overall appearance of this kitchen faucet is superb.It gleams and looks very expensive though very reasonably priced! The handle, sprayer, and spout move smoothly to make clean-up much easier.The neck of the spout is high enough that I can perfectly fit my pasta pot underneath to clean.Overall, I am very pleased with this faucet and Delta's product quality.I am very happy with my GE frige.This is my first frige in my first apartment.It has alot of space and looks really clean and runs nicely and quietly. The customer service was great too.This is the most beautiful chandelier. I get so many complemetns on it.Is a bit exotic and not for everyone - only if you want a true focal point.I needed a chandlier to complete the decorating in my dining area. I wanted black so that it would match my granite countertop and compliment the area since I have an open concept between kitchen and dining area.I also wanted one that would allow for small lampshades, since I like to experiment with color.The chandlier has met all my needs.I was very satisfied with overall quality of this light fixture.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The true laser measurement is far superior to the sonic devices. This product was excellent and easily installed.The stainless steel design was perfect for my new kitchen.I purchased the poarch light & the pathway lights because they are the perfect accessory for our home.\nThey are very classic looking and add a warm & welcoming glow to the front yard.They were very easy to install & arrived in perfect condition. This is the 2nd Closetmaid organizer that we've bought and will definitely continue to purchase them as needed and recommend to others.I did have a hard time finding this product but I am glad that I did.I fixed 2 mirrors in less than an hour.\n\nIt was easy, fast and looked great afterwards.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Almost like dried on sand, hard to get out.If you want a work of art that coincidently works as a convector heater then buy this. I can see my family leaving it turned on it is so quiet. Not so quiet on high speed, but its moving air. It even looks good from underneath which I didn't realize was important untill I sat at the table; you spend as much time looking under it as you do from above. The cheaper hoods, look cheap from ground level. You get what you pay for.Great looking range hood! It really moves the air and I love the multi-light settings. My only complaint- the light bulbs are HORRIBLE to get in. I can't get one to stay in and one fell out and shattered.I had two disappointments with this hood. One was the type lights used require special bulbs with little projections that fit into a slot. At three of the four bulb sockets the bulb was not long enough to fully engage so I had to loosen the socket slightly to let it drop down enough for the light bulb to twist into position. Screw in type bulbs should have been incorporated in design. Second disappointment was in quality.
