One of the Best Shipping Scales I’ve ever Purchased
This scale is perfect for my needs. I use the Weighmax 2822-75LB postal shipping scale to calculate postage for my ebay packages and they are always accurate. It is very accurate as I have tested it against a couple of other smaller scales that I have. I needed something that would weigh heavier items. This one goes up to 75lbs. I’ve had no problems with it so far.
The only thing you have to remember is when you first turn it on, you need to wait 30 seconds before you can put something on it. I would recommend this scale for anybody who needs one to weigh large parcels.
Advantage of Using an Oil Filled Radiator
I was torn between getting an oil filled heater and an electric fire for my small office. After reading various articles I found that an oil filled radiator however has two main advantages over an electric fire.
- It would be safer to use in an attic as there is no exposed hot element to cause a fire if positioned near combustible materials and
- most units come with a built in thermostat to allow the heat output to be controlled, so I would go for the radiator. So I will be going for the oil filled heater.
Checkout the Elnur SH6M – 0.85Kw Storage Heater
I had the pleasure of visiting family in the UK and they had a heating unit that I had never seen before, a storage heater. Here is the one they the Elnur SH6M – 0.85Kw Storage Heater. This unit was usedto heat a small room used as a study so that the gas central heating is not on all the time. It is plugged into a socket but uses small current so not a problem.
The Clore JNC660 ‘Jump-N-Carry’ – Best Jump Starter
If you can’t start your car or truck with the Clore JNC660 ‘Jump-N-Carry’, you have bigger problems than a dead battery! This unit is one of the most powerful portable jumper starters out there at 1700 peak amps. That’s almost twice as powerful as many other lower quality competitors.
This is not a “multipurpose” unit that you will find at the local big box store. It’s not an air compressor, radio, flashlight, food processor and battery jumper. It’s only a battery jumper, although it does have a “cigarette-lighter” style socket to power other items if needed.
This unit has been updated with a more sophisticated charging mechanism. You can just plug it in and walk away from it while it’s charging…and the unit will not allow itself to become overcharged. The original version didn’t have this feature.
Using the Norelco NT9110 for Nose Hair Trimming
After seeing the overall good reviews for the Norelco NT9110, I decided to get one. I’ve used a ton of the rotating head versions of nose hair clippers, all with spotty results and they take forever. This thing attacks nose hair like a great white shark. Awesome.
This trimmer has two heads, a cylindrical one and a flat side-burn-type trimmer head. There are plastic combs that snap onto the trimming heads to control the length of trimming for eyebrows and facial hair. I use it without a comb to get close trimming of nose hair and ear hair. It runs on one AA battery (included), and comes with a zippered fabric case that holds all the attachments and the trimmer itself. Good for keeping my facial hair neat and tidy.
My New Ear Thermometer
I used to have the Braun Thermoscan ear thermometer until my daughter wrecked it. I liked that thermometer, however, I did not like buying the ear cover pieces. Although the cover pieces were cheap, you can find the costs mount up over time. So, I wanted a thermometer model that I didn’t need to buy covers for. I found the TempIR Thermometer and read the reviews and I decided to give it a shot.
I have a chance to use it a couple of times and it reads temperatures fast, and I love how it had a back-light so you can see the temp in the dark. I would definitely recommend this product.
My new Bankers Lamp Shade
This is just what I needed after my darling cat decided to climb on top of my banker’s lamp, knock it over and shatter the glass shade. Its been a challenge to find a suitable replacement and I had to do a lot of digging.
And when the replacement bankers lamp shade arrived it was an engineering challenge to replace the shade because one has to take the socket apart to get the old shade out and the new one in, but I managed to get it done. It fit perfectly and looks better than the the original. Good product.
Using a Hot Towel Cabinet at Home
I love my new Towel Warmer. It gets nice and hot and is easy to clean. However, the clinic where my wife works also has the same Hot Towel Cabi and they have had to send two back due to lack of heat. I hope min does not suffer the same fate. Just happy that mine works.
I highly recommend this to anyone who gets a massage in your home or if you know reiki and want to add this to your program.
Using the Chef’s Choice 810 Gourmet Egg Cooker
I got this Chef’s Choice 810 Gourmet Egg Cooker about a week and a half ago and have used it several times with great success. After reading many reviews on 4 brands of egg cookers, I chose this one. I never thought I would be praising the virtues of an egg cooker until I had an egg that had been steamed. Wow, what a difference.
The steamed eggs are also easy to peel and this cooker doesn’t require piercing the shell, like others do. Once you’ve steam eggs, you won’t ever want to go back to boiling them. This unit, you fill with water to a mark, if you are within 30% either way, doesn’t seem to make any difference to the cooking consistency of the egg. I would advise you to keep a small towel or paper towels under it to absorb the moisture.
Hamilton Beach 10092 Travel Iron – The Best Travel Iron Out there!
I purchased this steam and dry iron to use during conventions for hotels that may not have them. It was everything that was stated in some of the other reviews which was the reason that I selected this one.
It very compact, easy to use and does a great job. It does spit some steam out occasionally but is good for my purposes. It is light weight and does not take up a lot of room.
