Weber's Q hybrid gas grill has a uniquely funky design that allows it to serve equally well as a compact portable grill or as a full featured backyard grill at home. Its generous 280 square-inch porcelain-enameled cast-iron cooking grate offers plenty of grilling acreage for a pile of burgers, strip steaks, hot-dogs or a fish nearly as big as the one that got away. The lid offers a 7-inch tall capacity and can cover foods as big around as a whole chicken. At the same time, the Q folds up to only 31-1/2 inches for easy carrying, and the Q's glass reinforced nylon frame helps keep it lightweight without sacrificing strength or durability. It has two durable fold out side wings with built in tool holders to serve as work tables, and the lid on the handle is heat resistant, and large enough to offer an easy grip even when you're wearing a grilling mitt. There's an infinitely adjustable burner valve with a high quality regulator to allow for complete control of cooking temperatures, a push-button ignition for easy reliable lighting, and the Q is fueled by a standard 14.1 ounce propane cylinder (not included). The lid and body are made of durable cast aluminum, and have built in drip ducts to channel away juices and drippings, which then collect on an easy to reach and easy to clean lower tray. --Brian Trinen ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Love the Q!
Husband & I recently bought a Q, after many years of happy grilling on a Weber charcoal grill. We'd been shopping for a gas grill for quite some time, but could not find a quality small grill. Most of the gas grills are just TOO BIG!

We're usually grilling just for the two of us and we wanted a gas grill for the convenience. The Q certainly fits the bill. It's great! I've cooked steaks, burgers, chicken, fish, pork chops, zucchini, onion slices -- well, you get the picture -- and they've all turned out perfectly. It gets plenty hot and heats very evenly. The side tables are a marvelous addition. I was concerned that they might get "icky" when you fold them into the Q, but they're designed so that only the tiny little points on the corners touch the grate.

The cart is a worthwhile addition. It could be a bit sturdier, but it works well enough and the Q fits snugly on top of it and sort of "locks down" under some plastic tabs. I bought a 5' LP adapter hose for $10 at the local sporting goods store (look in the camp stove aisle) so I can hook it up to a 20# tank. My only complaint is that the cart instructions say DO NOT store a tank on the cart, so the tank has to sit beside the Q. I'd rather be able to store the tank on the bottom rack of the cart, but I guess Weber has its reasons for instructing you not to do so.

All in all, a great purchase!

5-0 out of 5 stars Another Great Weber Grill
This is my third Weber grill and first ever gas grill. I've been considering a gas grill for more convenience during the week, but didn't want one that took up much room. The Thermos and Coleman portable models that have come out in the last year interested me at first, but really just seemed to be outdoor grillpans/griddles. Then I saw the Q...

The Q is a good looking, stylish grill. Added to that are clever design features (folding trays, ultra-light composite shell), a high quality regulator, and a cast iron cooking grate that weighs more than the rest of the grill. Weber has also designed accessories that add to the functionality of the Q. Out of the box, assembly is a breeze. A useful Owner's Guide and a nice recipe card booklet are provided.

I've cooked one meal so far. The food cooked evenly across the whole surface. Once it was preheated, the medium gas setting was plenty to keep the heat up. I was very impressed with how well it cooked. Also, don't be fooled by the thought of a portable grill being small -- the Q can handle a lot of food. I had 4 sausages and 12 large shrimp on it and there was plenty of room for more.

As a longtime dedicated charcoal guy, I find that gas grilling just doesn't provide the same flavor. But the Q has won me over for quick, clean, and convenient weeknight cooking. The idea of being able to take it on the road adds to the value. It may even prove to be a handy double-burner for weekend barbecues. Thanks, Weber, for another great grill.

(Update: I've now grilled potato planks, chicken breast, pork chops, pizza, polenta, pinwheel skirt steaks, garlic bread, eggplant, mushrooms, and beef skewers. All have turned out pefectly. Can't say enough about the cooking grate and evenness of cooking across the entire surface.)

5-0 out of 5 stars The best BBQ grill ever
If it's possible for a grill to revolutionize BBQ'ing as mankind knows it, then this is the grill. Seriously! I was always a diehard charcoal BBQ guy, and I've had weber grills in the past and have been very happy with them. But I recently moved to an apartment complex where I could not have a charcoal grill. When I saw the Weber Q grill, it was love at first sight. The design is both attractive yet practical. The purchase was a no brainer as I new I had to have a gas grill, eve though I still would have rather had a charcoal one for the sheer flavor. Well after getting this home and cooking a dozen burgers and dogs for myself and some friends I was completely overwhelmed. I had never tasted gas-grilled burgers which tasted so good. Furthermore, this thing heats up so fast, it's just amazing. In 3 minutes the grill is hot and ready to go, and that grill, solid cast iron, holds the heat and cooks beautifully. I've never been able to cook those cool grill marks on burgers and steaks before. Believe me, you will cook perfect burgers and steaks, with those grill marks, while retaining all the flavor and juiciness. This grill is awesome. Unfortunately I paid $30 more than what Amazon is charging because I bought it from a specialty BBQ store and I needed it that day, but trust me, this is the best grill you will ever buy.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great little grill!
I echo the positive sentiments of all reviewers past. Goes together quickly. I also have the stand & the cover. Just used the grill for a 4th of July mini-cookout. Perfect for the 2 of us. I can easily see this grill handling enough food for many more people without a problem. Came up to cooking-temperature very fast and cooked our steak tips and burgers nice and evenly. It was a very windy day here as well and I had no problem at all with the grill staying lit. Never once did I lose the flame.
Very durable - I tipped it over while it was resting on the Weber Q cart. It rolled a few times on the lawn but was unscathed in the end. Not even a scratch. Needless to say I am very impressed with the quality of this product!
Like some others mentioned, I am using the 16oz propane cylinders after a minor tweak to the holder. No problems there either.
Even though we have more than enough room for a full-size grill, I like being able to store the grill in a small space. After using this one, I can see no reason to get a full-size grill.
I would strongly recommend this grill. It truly lives up to all the hype.

4-0 out of 5 stars No space? No problem!
Living in a small top floor condo, I needed a grill that was small, yet worked well enough to cook a good family-sized meal. So after doing a little research on the internet, and by reading magazines; I settled on the Weber Q Portable Gas Grill.

This grill is very nice for a portable grill. It's got an attractive functional design which allows it to fold up when transporting it, or when its not in use. Although it doesn't generate as much heat as bigger grills, it does have enough power to cook about 5-7 large hamgburgers at once easily. The burner is basically a rectangular metal tube with tiny holes from which the flames emerge from. The burner itself rests below the grill about 7-8inches. This makes a hotspot that is about center, but slightly towards the cover's hinges. Around the center of the grill, there is ample space for indirect cooking, but if you plan on cooking a large pork roast, this still maybe a bit small. Still, for most other things like hamburgers, chicken legs, ribs, and hot dogs; the Weber Q works very well.

As far as taste goes, charcoal is still the best, but I would rather use a good gas grill like this one in favor of its easy clean up. The Weber Q's porcelain/cast iron grill can be easily removed and cleaned with soapy water and some good scrubbing. The drip pan is easily accessible as well as the bottom of the grill itself - where all the ash and drippings collect. This can be easily cleaned with some 409 cleaner and a scrubber. Typically it takes me about 15-20 minutes to clean my Weber Q after I finish using it. And best of all, I can do it all in my small kitchen, without having to go downstairs to the shared water hose.

The Weber Q uses 14.1 ounce Propane gas canisters. These last about 1.5 hours, so I would recommend at least 3 for a weekend bar-b-que. These cansisters can be easily screwed into place, and held by a fitted metal ring. I should point out that the Weber Q is made to work with the 14.1 ounce canisters because this metal ring is sized for them specifically. You could also buy an attachment that allows for the larger, more common propane tank to connect to it, but I think that would cut down on its portability. Also note that these canisters should not be disposed of like other trash. Typically, hardware stores like Orchard Supply are willing to dispose of them for you. In my case, I usually give them my used canisters when I go there to buy more.

Perhaps the only real downside to this grill is that it does not come with a stand. You would be forced to kneel, or sqaut to get to your grill as a result. Weber does make a stand, but it costs another $25-30. So if you want to save yourself from some back pain, definitely get the stand. Of course, this brings the price of the grill to almost $200. And that's somewhat expensive for a portable grill. Still, I do like the ease with which the Weber Q folds up and how portable it is (the stand folds up as well). So if you have little space and want to grill decent amounts of food, I suggest checking this grill out. It's expensive, but it's a very good portable grill. ... Read more

For the true hummingbird enthusiast, this feeder mobile is a beautiful combination of form and function. The three nectar containers are made of rugged, scratch-resistant tempered glass. Each container offers two "no bees allowed" feeding ports, and together they hold 30 ounces of nectar. The sculpted arms of the mobile and the hummingbird ornament at the top are made of durable, rust-resistant metal and handpainted in vibrant colors. The whole thing assembles within minutes and the nectar containers are easy to fill and clean. A hanging chain is included. --Erin Brown ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Lovely to look at - attractive to birds
I was concerned that the birds would not come to the feeder because of the concealed feeding holes, but I brewed my first batch of nectar a little stronger as the instructions recommended and they were feeding within an hour of putting it up. I have another feeder - a traditional one - in another part of the yard, which they prefer (it has the resting arms that the other reviewer recommends) but this is a nice alternative for the birds that are chased away from that feeder. Because of the complex structure of the mobile, I've not had any trouble with ants at all, as I do with my other one! It's also amazingly easy to clean. I've found with other feeders, the little plastic flowers eventually break off. The glass globes can even be washed in the dishwasher (but be sure to rinse them afterwards to get rid of any detergent residue that can harm birds).

5-0 out of 5 stars The birds love it!
We have had a wonderful time watching the hummers use this feeder. They are especially active at twilight. We often get 6 - 8 birds fighting over spots and one evening I counted at least 10!

I have had no problems with leaking and the feeder is really easy to refill. Good thing because I have to fill it at least twice a week.

2-0 out of 5 stars Pretty to look at...but ours is a LEAKY MESS!!!
We are having bad luck with the hummingbird feeder. It leaks the liquid sugar solution all over the patio. Hummingbirds like it, but not as much as the ANTS!! I will try to get a refund or exchange it...maybe ours is just a reject!

5-0 out of 5 stars A work of art
One of my best catalog purchases ever, it's simply beautiful. Has survived many strong wind storms. I just love it.

4-0 out of 5 stars Beautiful and sturdy
We received this feeder as a Christmas gift and were delighted with it. It survived two rather violent wind storms this spring(gusts upwards of 55 mph)-- though one globe blew down, it did not break, or even crack. The only loss has been the bottom cap for one of the globes (eaten by our dog) so now we can't fill that globe. Like another reviewer, I wish that part were sold separately. Otherwise, it's gorgeous to look at, and useful. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Best smoker.....at any price!!
I've used several cheaper water smokers, offset units, gas grills, you name it. I've used them all to make bar-b-que, however, non of them has produced a better product then the Weber Smokey Mountain. This is the best smoker you can buy at any price. It's perfect for small families and large ones. You can easily prepare 6 to 10 racks of ribs at once. I've done 3 - 7lbs pork butts and a 12 lbs brisket at the same time.

This unit is made to Weber standard, so you know it's well built. Heavy enamel coating that will last a life-time. The effeciency of the cooker is unbelievable. I've done 15 hour cooks without adding any extra fuel.

This is the first smoker (of any type) that I've used that I didn't have to baby sit. Most smokers need almost constant attention in order to maintain proper temp. Not the Weber. It needs virtually no adjustments to keep a steady smoking temperature for hours and hours. You can easily do overnight cooks and sleep easy as the Weber does it's magic.

5-0 out of 5 stars Weber Smoker
I purchased my Weber Smokey Mountain Cooker in August 2003 after talking about doing so for years and after looking at many competing models. I am not disappointed. From an engineering prespective it's design is simple and straightforward and it is extremely well built (just compare it to competing models and you will quickly see the difference). By reviewing the Thermometer installation procedures available at "virtualweberbullet" web site, adding an industrial grade thermometer by drilling a small hole in the cover was completed easily.

The results have been fantastic!! I have used the noted web site to learn about techniques to extend the cooking period without having to add charcoal and the rib recipe (The Best Ribs in the Universe) is out of this world! Smoked Turkey, smoked chicken, smoked salmon and smoked almonds have all been easy to prepare and the results outstanding.

I easily designed and constructed a side simple shelf (from two shelf brackets, a 10"x12" piece of oak, and a 1/8"x1" by 30" piece of steel straping available at Home Depot) that can be temporarily attached to the cooking section for use during any smoking session and easily removed so that you can then place the cover on the smoker for storage.

You will not be disappointed with the results of you efforts with this smoker!

5-0 out of 5 stars Superb Results
The WSM (aka bullet) cooker is an excellent product for BBQ novice and master. Consistent temperature make this a great 1st smoker for anyone who wants to make their own real barbeque. Easy to clean, a joy to use.

5-0 out of 5 stars Bring Bob out from the Cold
"Toolbits" hedgehog warmer is a comforting additon to anyone living out in the wilds where small, furry rodents come in from the cold, its easy to use, just a few flips of the switch and you will have a warm habitat for the furry creatures.

5-0 out of 5 stars An awesome cooker!
Got this as a present to replace my worn-out cheap-o Brinkman. I wouldn't have spent so much on myself, but am glad someone did! Fire stays lit, heat is slow and steady, with no intervention. The old one used to go out on me, heat up, down & all over. Not this puppy. The construction is heavy all the way. It really helps to be able to lift off that middle ring section when setting up the fire. There are web sites dedicated to this cooker, and for good reason. Some advice - buy the Weber chimney starter and rib rack along with this item. Also, the grill gloves are a nicety, but not a must-have. In the beginning, you can get your recipes off the internet. Best spare ribs ever! ... Read more

This versatile system forecasts local weather; automatically sets andupdates the time, day, and date; keeps track of the indoor temperature; andemploys a remote, wireless sensor to record the outdoor temperature up to 100feet away. For forecasting weather within 12 to 24 hours, the6-1/4-by-4-1/4-inch monitor employs a built-in electronic barometric-pressuresensor and then displays the upcoming weather with an icon (sunny, partly sunny,cloudy, rain/snow) on its backlit LCD screen. For keeping track of time, themonitor is equipped with a radio receiver tuned to the U.S. atomic clock; thisenables the monitor to maintain split-second accuracy by automaticallyadjusting, if necessary, to the atomic clock's signals six times every 24 hours.From those signals, the monitor also displays the date, the day, and the timezone for which the user has set the clock. Also, the clock automatically adjustsfor daylight saving time and for leap year. The monitor beams the time and theoutdoor temperature onto a wall or ceiling in large, red numerals for easyreadability. If the monitor is in battery-mode (four AA batteries included),pressing the clock's snooze bar will beam the data for five seconds. If themonitor is plugged into a wall socket with an AC adapter (included), theprojection will be available either for five seconds with the snooze bar orcontinuously if a continuous-beam control is set. The projection beam comes froma device mounted next to the clock. The device pivots so the beam can beprojected onto any surface, and a dial focuses the beam for clarity. You canalso choose to have the temperature displayed in either Celsius or Fahrenheit.--Fred Brack ... Read more

Although there are some cool features on this clock, it doesn't do all that it should. I'll simply list the pros and cons and you can decide for yourself.

Pros:
- you can instantly know the weather outside and the temperature inside.
- the forcast prediction and graphics are remarkably accurate.
- projection on ceiling is very cool at night - you can look straight up as you lie in bed and know the time.

Cons:
- even though it plugs in, the clock runs on batteries. the plug is only for the projection part.
- the alarm wouldn't wake up the lightest sleeper - it's just a little beep like your microwave makes. it just makes them more often as you sleep through it.
- the projection doesn't work at all if any light is on in the room and it's really only usefull on a perpendicular surface - otherwise it's stretched and half out of focus.

So as a second clock and something neat to have, this is fine. Don't get it as your primary alarm clock if you want to make it to work on time and not get fired :-)

5-0 out of 5 stars ITS THE BEST BED SIDE CLOCK EVER !!!
The projection is awesome! The alarm starts quiet then gets loud enough to wake anyone (except the dead or the laziest). The weather forcasting works great never wrong. Knowing the time and outdoor temp as soon you open your eye's right on the ceiling or wall is wonderful! Never needs to be set I receive the signal fine and I live in northern rural Minnesota. Buy it you will love it.

5-0 out of 5 stars GREAT!!!
I had this for a year now, and I NEVER had a problem with it. *Knock wood*. It does what it says, and it is very accurate, and the weather forecaster is pretty acurate too. A must buy!

4-0 out of 5 stars Too Little....
Love the clock but wish the buttons were a little less cumbersome - hard to manipulate with just one hand. Indoor temp. reads a little high. Perhaps the projector heats the internals. Other than that, the time and outdoor temp. on the ceiling is quite entertaining!

4-0 out of 5 stars Great idea; poor design
I bought this clock for my technophobic mother and she loves it. The display on the ceiling is ideal for her; she is severely near-sighted in one eye and almost blind in the other. She can see the display on the ceilng in the middle of the night without any problems. In addition to the display, she appreciates being able to see the temperature, both inside and out.

Another feature of this clock that is ideal for her is that the regular display is only lit when you want it to be lit. There are no glaring red numbers staring at you all night. When you want to see the time/temp, press the snooze button and the display lights for a few seconds.

Now for the negatives of this great little gadget. It is very lightweight and the buttons sit smoothly at the bottom of the clock. It is difficult to tell one button from another or to even push the buttons to set the alarm, view, etc. Raised braille like nobs on the buttons would be helpful as well as making the base wider so it would be more difficult to knock it over. Also, if the clock is running off battery, you have the option of displaying the time on the ceiling only when you press the snooze button. However, if you use the A/C adapter, you're choices are continuous display or no display. The slide switch that controls this is on the side of the clock and is difficult to find by feel.

Despite the few shortcomings of this clock, I still think it's wonderful and recommend it to anyone who is tired of squinting at glowing red dots to see what time it is; who wants to know the temperature both inside and out; and who always wants the correct time. ... Read more

The Weber One-Touch Silver kettle grill is perfect for anyone who wants a well-designed, no-nonsense grill that cooks up food deliciously. Perfect for backyard barbecues or just whipping up an evening meal, this impressive grill has a cooking surface (22-1/2 inches in diameter) big enough to accommodate six large steaks, twice as many burgers, or up to a dozen kebabs. And the One-Touch Silver's classic kettle shape radiates heat evenly and keeps charcoal flare-ups to a minimum.

The barbecue pioneers at Weber--they've been making grills since 1951--know how to design a grill that lasts. The One-Touch Silver's porcelain-coated steel bowl and lid are exceptionally strong and designed never to rust, fade, or peel. The grill's hardware is of the highest quality. The aluminum vents and ash catcher won't rust, and the grill's tripod base, nylon handles, and all-weather wheels combine to make this Weber both exceptionally sturdy and easy to maneuver. Weber's patented One-Touch cleaning system--a clever setup of lever-activated blades--sifts ash out of the kettle and into the grill's removable catch pan. You never have to get your hands dirty--and emptying the kettle takes only a few seconds.

For those in search (or need) of culinary guidance, Weber includes a 31-page owner's guide filled with cooking tips and time-tested recipes for grilling everything from pork chops to bratwurst to Cornish hens. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Weber Silver 22 1/2" Grill
We had heard this was the best grill on the market. We have a tiny terrace in a New York City apartment but love to barbecue so went for this which is really to large for the terrace but not for us, friends & family. It cooks great and we just tried the "indirect" cooking method. It looked like a pain to do it but turned out to be as simple as direct grilling, no fat dripping on the coals and with the Weber charcoal starter, easier than I've ever experienced. Altogether an A+++ experience.

5-0 out of 5 stars Don't buy anything else other than Weber
As far back I can remember my family has always had a Weber Grill. The first Weber I remember from when I was a kid, didn't have the one touch system. It was given away when I was 14, when my dad bought a Weber One-touch as it was called then. That was over 15 years ago. When I joined the military and got married I bought a Weber for myself. It was also one without the one-touch. We used it all the time. Then in 1998 I bought my dad the Master Touch for Father's Day. I wasn't too happy with the change from cedar handles to plastic. After it was put together we cooked a great meal on it. My dad gave me the one touch he bought way back when since he didn't have the need it. It's still going strong today cooking good meals everytime and still has many years to go even though it's kept out in the english weather.

I have used other charcoal grills and gone to freinds and familes who used gas. The food defintly tastes different. I've got proof that they last too, sitting out side my patio door. I'm very happy with Weber's quality. If I decide it's time for a new Weber I would choose the Performer for the convinence. All the Grills that Weber makes are top quality and last. So buy a Weber and enjoy barbecueing like you never had before.

5-0 out of 5 stars Smokin'!
My wife, kids, family and friends loved when I smoked a 25 pound turkey on my 22 1/2" grill. Mine is an older model with wooden handles. Recently (7/4/2004) cooked shish kabobs, WOW! This grill, as John Cameron Swayze said on old Timex watch commercials, takes a licking and keeps on ticking. Now if Weber only offered a refinishing kit/service for these; mine is 15 years old, has been out in all weather uncovered.

4-0 out of 5 stars For REAL charcoal cooking (not storebought)
Why buy anything else? Well, as one reviewer pointed out, the Sunbeam is cheaper and cleans out more easily--but who cares? It's not as well built and thus will not last nearly as long. A key feature that many Americans (unlike hardwood burning southerners and grapevine burning mediterranean folks) realize is that one can actually cook food over coals obtained from burning real wood (yet we, continually hoodwinked marketing victims, spend billions on bags of charcoal a year). Such common sense purists in the know view charcoal as rediculously as charcoal enthusiasts view gas grills. With a heavy duty, basic-design Weber a nice pre-party hardwood fire can crackle away until beautiful and far more flavorful and longer lasting coals are obtained. Remember those 12 acres of kindling lying on the ground behind your house or along the road where you walk your dog? All for free--and didn't it need to be burned anyway? On most other grills, such roaring fires wood detroy the enamel, melting an entire cooking unit down to a point where an 8 by 6 foot black hole could be left in one's smoldering deck. No fears from the big weber--just keep the kids back as well as heavy alcohol consumption down until cooking is well under control. Don't be throwing in those toxic pressure-treated off-cuts to celebrate your new deck either. Also, to keep the fire rolling without stoking up more flames, one can add storebought charcoal if necessary, which is a small concession to keeping the party rolling.

There is no use in repeating everybody else's words, so I will simply endorse all positive reviews by reference. A great grill, period. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Durable pads - horrible straps
Thee pads were great for me this past summer and fall. I used them to lay a cobblestone driveway. They really took a beating and the pads remained unscathed. The straps on the other hand are not so durable and one of the pads is near the end of its usefulness as the strap has almost seperated. To make matters worse, the neoprene does not breathe and your knees and backs of your legs will get sweaty in warm weather. All in all, a solid product that might not stand up to very hard use.

4-0 out of 5 stars Super-durable and Very Comfortable
That about sums it up - these pads work great for any work in the garden or around the house. My only quibble is that you'll get pretty hot underneath the neoprene straps when working outdoors in the Summer.

5-0 out of 5 stars The Pads For All Seasons
My wife and I bought a pair of these pads in the Spring of this year. We are carpenters and organic gardeners so we have gone through countless pads in the past: gel types, hard caps, neoprene, latex, etc. All of latter have never met our needs nor fulfilled our expectations.

The Fiskars Kneepads Plus are lightweight and truly do conform to our knees. We work them on hard concrete, slate, marble, rough gravel, and clay soils in total comfort. We are both right-kneed (prosaic license)and have worn out so many Carharts that we could start a second-hand store! Now our jeans last for much longer so these pads can actually save you bucks!

The Fiskars Plus pads also stay up and do not wrap around our knees. The padding causes very little sweating and dries quickly. The elastic and hook-loop fasteners have sagged a bit after so much use but my better half is also a seamstress and has re-sewn them to new condition.

It is a rainy Autumn morning as we now head to the garden to harvest our crops before the frost....Fiskars strapped in place.

5-0 out of 5 stars Yea,They're Pretty Good
I'm a service tech for the local phone company. I spend a lot of time on my knees, stapling wire to base boards, crawling under houses, crawling in attics. These are the knee pads I use and I've used them about 2 years. These are light weight but have just enough padding to insulate your knee from rocks or hard surfaces. It's real strong suit is that when it's time to put them on or take them off, it's really easy and fast. Plus they stay on your knees(not migrating down towards your ankles). There are cushier pads around, and pads that insulate the rock shock better but they cost a lot more or they are time consuming to put on and take off. So for ease of use, cost, and reliability I don't think you can go wrong with these.

5-0 out of 5 stars These are essential equipment for my oval office
These pads are SO good, they could be deemed "presidential." I recently used them when broke my leg at the ankle. When I wasn't using crutches or a wheelchair, I was getting around by crawling around on my hands and knees like a six-month old. (haha, fooled you, where did you think I was going with that opening sentence, you naughty person, you?)

When I am back on my feet (literally) I intend to use these to clean the floors (not done in months) and to remove the traces of my garden which has been destroyed by the drought. Or use them while praying to the rain gods. They will be handy indeed. ... Read more

And then went out and replaced them immediately. Say goodbye to aching hands and wrists, and to blisters from those rubbing scissor handles. These little snips work effortlessly and come in handy for so many things it's tempting to toss the regular scissors away.

5-0 out of 5 stars Herb Gardening
I received my pair of snips in a combination package, so I wasn't looking for them in particular. However, they have been irreplaceable in my herb garden...to cut leaves off the plant in the garden, then to take them with me to the kitchen to snip them for recipes!

This product was featured as Pruning Snips. When the package arrived, it was called "Floral Snip". It is the size of children's scissors and nowhere on the packaging is "Pruning" mentioned.

The sounds of nature are sweet, but the music of chirping birds, chattering squirrels, and rustling leaves is even sweeter when accompanied by Woodstock's Gregorian alto computer-tuned wind chimes. These silver chimes play medieval alto notes inspired by the Gregorian chants of Europe. Company founder Garry Kvistad has developed an advanced method of tuning used on every Woodstock chime: each tube is analyzed digitally with a microphone under the tube measuring the frequency, and cutters are instructed to remove just the right amount of material to produce the most precise tuning possible. The result is a purer, more harmonious sound. All Woodstock wind chimes are made in the USA from nonendangered hardwoods treated to endure season after season of outdoor use. Woodstock prides itself on being a socially responsible company, explaining that "through the sale of our chimes we proudly support the arts, as well as many environmental and humanitarian causes." Add a hint of Gregorian mystery to your yard or garden while contributing to the harmony of the earth. --Ariel Meadow Stallings ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Gardening Tool
I love this bench! It is easy to assembly for anyone with easy to follow instructions, no tools required. The bench is great for indoors or outdoors. I use it all year around, rain or shine, cold or hot. It also easy to clean, just hose it off.

5-0 out of 5 stars Got a house? You should probably buy this.
I once heard on the radio that when a man buys a house and moves out of an apartment, he buys two things: a refrigerator and a barbecue grill.

I wouldn't be surprised if the Suncast GB3000 is the third item on his list.

Suncast calls it a gardening bench. I think that name doesn't do the product justice.

As others have already pointed out, this convenient cart is terrific as a barbecue "side-cart" or as a bar for a party.

In my case, it is also a great rolling workbench -- I had to replace a broken part in my car's driver-side door. The large table top and additional shelves in this cart made it easy for me to spread out my tools and the replacement part. The "tub" tray was perfect for holding on to the screws and bolts that I had to remove to get to the broken part.

And, of course, it's useful for doing work around the yard. The plastic cart washes easily so it's not too bad to switch it use between gardening cart, workbench, and barbecue side-cart.

Is is reasonably sturdy and is easy to assemble. It takes only about 5 minutes, and you don't need any tools. The vertical supports are rubber-coated steel, so it's strong.

It turns out that you have some flexibility when assembling the cart -- the tray slots can be toward the "back" (over the wheels) or toward the "front" (under the handles), and you can mount them so that the trays come out in the left/right direction, or in the front/back direction. The smaller upper-shelf can also be placed either toward the back, or the front.

BTW, I originally bought one as a father's day present; but got one for myself after I saw how nice it was. If you have a house, I think this makes a good purchase.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Item! Easy to put together!!
This is an excellent product! I put it together in 15 minutes and no tools were needed. Very simple! It is heavy duty and sturdy. It has a lot of room to work and different ways to design the cart to make it work for you the way you want it too.

5-0 out of 5 stars Around 10 years old and still going!
I got my Suncast Gardening Bench for Mother's Day around 10 years ago. It has been outside the entire time and although the winters can get very cold here, it is in great shape. I love it!

5-0 out of 5 stars My great bargain!!
After reading other reviews and having looked unsuccessfully for a practical bench on which to pot and trim my bonsai trees, I just bought the Suncast cart at my local garden center for $$$$$ on clearance. It was a snap to put together, and it fits perfectly next to the grill on my patio. There it can do double duty as a barbecue cart and potting bench. I had looked at many wood ones online, but Wisconsin weather is hard on wood outdoors, and I'm looking to lower my maintenance chores, not increase them.
This was the perfect answer at a bargain price. I highly recommend this product. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars great; weight limit & hardware
This is a beautiful, sturdy, well-designed product. At first I thought it would look silly in a New England apartment, but then I sat in it and stopped caring. It's that comfortable. It's also fairly unobstrusive, and in a pinch (toddlers visiting? landlord dropping by?) it's easy to substitute a hanging plant or just unhook the chain from the ceiling altogether.

As far as safety, if you install it correctly you have nothing to worry about; yes, it will hold two people at once. :-) You'll need to buy a length of chain at the hardware store -- ask for 3/16" link, 750-lb test, and get one or two S-hooks that fit through a link. The chair itself is rated to support up to 500 lbs. Finally, a 2" x 4" ceiling joist will support 450 lbs over a 10-foot span before it begins to bow or buckle. Recommended . . . enjoy!

3-0 out of 5 stars Nice, but doesn't last outside
I bought one for my wife for Christmas 2 years ago, and it was inside most of the time for the first year, and outside most of the second year, and the small ropes in the seat broke and the chair developed large holes as it raveled apart.

5-0 out of 5 stars Bounty Hunter Tracker IV - No Experience Necessary
I figured that any metal detector would find the '32 Chevy buried in my backyard, but I wanted to find coins, rings, and Civil War relics in my 5 acre woods. It took 5 minutes to assemble the Tracker IV and about 15 minutes to review the instruction manual. Round up a few coins, a gold ring, and some nails and run through the demonstration on page 5 of the manual. It will give you an idea of how different objects respond to the 3 detection modes.

I borrowed my wife's headphones (highly recommended) and headed for the woods. Within minutes I found beer cans, shotgun shells, nails. The detector will pinpoint an object close enough that you can dig it up with a few scoops of a garden trowel. On my second attempt I found a man's silver ring.

Tracker IV appears to be well constructed and a good value. I don't have any experience with other detectors, but I can't imagine that any are easier to use than this one. Tracker IV is a great choice for your kids to use, if they can get it away from you!

4-0 out of 5 stars Impressed........nice features
I bought one used for [$$$] on .... I started scanning my Girlfriend's yard (house built in 1940's) and immediately picked up all sorts of signals. After a day I became used to the different tones and began discriminating what to and not to dig. That day I found 3 spoons, one of them is silver, and 5 wheat pennies. The next day I searched a sledding hill and found about [$$$] in change. I think its a great deal for the money.

4-0 out of 5 stars It's good, but.......
I collect rare bottle caps, and try to take care not to lose any of my collection. I was coming back from a convention recently and one of my collection boxes hopped out of the back of the pickup as I was crossing an old hump-back bridge, and fell into a small stream.

So I bought the metal detector to try to get my valuable collection back. This one said it is waterproof so I figured it might do the job.

Well, after three weeks of wading up and down the stream I have had mixed fortunes. A Celtic chalice, the silver cumtach (cover) from a medieval bible, two viking swords, a couple of daggers, a mound of celtic, roman and viking coins, an array of viking hacksilver, medieval broches and buckes from shoes and belts, delicately filigreed celtic gold jewellry and most notable of all (since the Romans never made it to Ireland) the metal fittings from eight complete and six incomplete sets of roman imperial legionnary armour.

OK, so I am famous now amongst scholars of the Romano-Celtic world. I have been awarded three honorary doctorate degrees for my finds, and I have been given freedom of the cities of Dublin and York, and I had to decline a Royal knighthood offered by the English Queen (I do have principles and I am an Irish Republican). But what is all this fame? I have lost a box of 200 bottle caps and not found a single one with the detector.

In that collection was a rare 1950's Kirin blue, a 1945 victory V double diamond crown cap and most valuable of all a Grolsch porcelain stopper from the first ever commercial batch. What does it profit a man to gain the world if he loseth his bottle cap collection?

If you buy the metal detector I hope you have more luck than me!

5-0 out of 5 stars Thrilled in Michigan
I bought this product for my 13 year old son's birthday, and he was thrilled. I was thrilled because it was easy to put together, works great over many different terrains, and is so easy to use, the whole family has enjoyed it! It is the perfect Tracker for us.

5-0 out of 5 stars Fun and Easy to Use
The Bounty Hunter was exactly what I was looking for. My 11 year old son and I wanted to expore metal detecting together. I didn't want to invest a large amount of money in something that was too high tech or that he would lose interest in. I didn't want to spend too little and get a cheap product. This item was priced right and so far has proven to be a quality item. It was easy to assemble (maybe 5 minutes), takes 2 standard 9 volt batteries and is lightweight enough for my 11 year old to handle with ease. The shaft adjusts in height so when I finally get my turn, I can adjust it to fit me.

We are having a ball so far with it. We haven't found any high dollar finds yet, but the neighborhood kids have gone with us the last few days and made it a fun treasure hunt. In our search of a couple vacant lots, we have found 17 cents, lots of nails, an old bottle cap, a saw blade and other misc items. We plan on taking this into the mountains soon, as it is waterproof so you can look for gold in the rivers. We can't wait! ... Read more

The clear Hummingbird Paradise lantern feeder is well made, easy to use, and looks great in a tree or on the back patio. Made of redwood, brass, and etched glass, this tropical, fun feeder uses three copper-colored flowers to attract brilliant hummers. Because the wide base gives the birds plenty of room to land, you can hang the feeder just about anywhere. Filling the feeder is easy: simply flip it over, pop off the base, pour in a sugar solution (directions included), and quickly flip it back. Removing the base requires a bit of force, and you have to be careful not to damage the flowers when you grip, but, overall, this is a very solid, long-lasting feeder. ... Read more

  • Add enchantment and action to wildlife gardens with this lantern

4-0 out of 5 stars The glass is red
The bit about red colored solution being bad for the birds is true, but this particular feeder has a red-colored *bottle*. You should still put clear feeding solution in it.

I actually own a much older version of this product, which has a purple bottle and no etchings. Same thing though, and it still works well several years later. I don't find it easy to clean if you are not faithful about cleaning it though. The narrow neck of the bottle makes it hard to remove any residue that may build up.

But it's easy to use and looks really great. Worth the money.

5-0 out of 5 stars Chris Young backyard wildlife caretaker
This product is everything I was looking for. I wanted a RED feeder because red really does attract the hummingbirds & I refuse to use food coloring or anything other than 4 parts water to 1 part sugar to my feeders because anything else can make them sick. The feeder is a perfect size, I don't like the real big feeders because I change the nectar every 3 days & the big feeders just waste the nectar. This feeder is also very attractive & adds a unique look to the garden. The way the bottom is shaped allows the little hummingbirds to take a break & perch which is so cute to see! The feeder is also very easy to clean, I use a long bottle brush I bought from a dollar store & it works even in the smallest of spaces. I highly recommend this feeder especially if someone is trying to attract hummingbirds but hasn't yet- the red really catches their eye! Plant some red Bee Balm (latin name Monarda)near this feeder & they wont be able to stay out of your yard!

5-0 out of 5 stars Form & Function Meet
I have owned one of these feeders for several years, and I am pleased with its appearance and no-hassle care routine. The feeder is made from high quality materials and is well-crafted. I am confident that (as long as I don't drop it onto concrete of course - it's glass) it will last for many years. For the most part, feeders I see at my local chain pet store do not inspire me with the same confidence.

The shape makes it easy to clean with a long-handled bottle brush, unlike some bulbous or other creatively shaped feeders that, while decorative, would make cleaning a chore. (Keeping hummingbird feeders clean is important for the health of the birds.) I use Schrodt's brush, but it stands to reason that any long-handled bottle brush will do just fine.

As has been mentioned in other reviews, yes, it is more expensive, but if one intends to seriously pursue an interest in hummingbird-watching, this is a feeder that will last and whose unobtrusive beauty would enhance any area in which it is displayed.

5-0 out of 5 stars quite pretty and functional
This is a very pretty hummingbird feeder made with red glass so you don't need to color the solution. The etchings on the glass are pretty and it's easy to refill the feeder, which comes with instructions. It's expensive for a feeder but the quality is very good and I am happy with the purchase.

1-0 out of 5 stars False Flipper
This Squirrel Proof feeder is a great idea in theory. But they fail to tell you until you open the box and read the instructions that their Yankee Flipper doesn't work with Red Squirrels. I am now the proud owner of an expensive Red Squirrel feeder. Their claim of a Squirrel Proof feeder sounds like false advertising to me.

5-0 out of 5 stars Absolutely works!
I have had my Yankee Flipper for more than 2 years now, and it works perfectly.I am almost disappointed that the Squirrels don't try anymore - except for the occasional rookie who quickly discovers that there is no food to be had here.

A couple of points I wanted to add to the other reviews:

1. Droll Yankees customer support is excellent. Some squirrel(s) managed to scratch or bite a small hole into the clear tube, right below the top of the feeder.One quick phone call, and a new feeder tube was in the mail to me at no cost.Impressive!

2. I initially charged the feeder while it was hanging on my deck, until the squirrels chewed up the cable where it plugs into the wall.Afterwards I bought two sets of NiMH batteries (Better than the NiCD that come with the feeder) and I charge them in a wall charger.This way I always have a fresh set ready, and changing them only takes a couple of minutes (unscrew three thumbscrews on the bottom of the feeder, swap batteries, replace screws).

It is a lot of money for a bird feeder, but well worth it!

5-0 out of 5 stars Yankee Flipper has the answer!
I previously wrote that I had a squirrel that was able to lock up the ring. I contacted customer service and they were so professional and helpful to send me a replacement motor. Well the new one is stronger and faster and no squirrel can stop it! It is almost as awesome as Yankee Droll's customer service! I take back my 4 stars happily. Enjoy the show!

4-0 out of 5 stars perfect !
I revised this review because of the awesome service of Yankee Droll. The new flippers rule!

5-0 out of 5 stars Satisfaction at last
OK, I'm an engineer.I even mounted sheet metal panels along the land and airborne assault routes the squirrels would use to get to the feeder.As a result the house looked like a battleship but the little robber-barons were still on the feeder chowing down the seed.I had to fill it nearly every day.We did not want to move the feeder from our rear window, and the Mrs. was not keen on me escalating to the next level of defensive measures!The Yankee Flipper has done the job, provided us great entertainment, and its large capacity means far fewer reminders to "please fill the bird feeder." ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Great feeder, but watch the raccoons
Yes, it's a great feeder-it provides a variety of feeds for a variety of birds. We have had an older non-copper (looking) model for two years in two homes and ,up until now, it was industrictible. Yes, we had to position it to keep off the squirrels but the feeder kept a lot of birds (and us) happy. Unfortunately, a group of raccoons recently discovered the feeder and my anti-squirrel measures have not worked. The worst part is that the heavy weight of a raccoon landing on the tray has caused it to break, spilling the entire contents of the feeder on the ground. They too were very happy. The bottom tray and the tabs that attach it to the tubes are plastic, like the rest of the feeder, and will break, given enough force. If you don't have any raccoons, this is still one of the best feeders that I have seen. In fact, I will order another one because I've since discovered a better way to keep the critters off.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great House warming gift !
This gift was a perfect house warming gift for a friend. Something they could admire outside there new family room window. It's attractive and functional and does not impose on the decor of a new home.

5-0 out of 5 stars Functional Feeder
This is an attractive-looking, well-designed bird feeder; a best buy. Warning: It loads up with a massive amount of seed--a positive--but it'll crash heavily and destructively to the ground unless you secure it well (not fault of feeder--due to my stupidity). I'm buying an exact replacement feeder now, wouldn't consider any other brand.

5-0 out of 5 stars Chris Young backyard wildlife caretaker
I read the other reviews for this product so I was made aware of the fact that this feeder is made of plastic & not copper. I wasn't concerned because the feeder is absolutely gorgeous anyway! I had recently purchased other copper feeders & houses & this one fit right in with my decor. It is indestructible but squirrles do get thier share of food from it because the bottom is large enough for them to sit in. I don't mind because I adore squirrels & the birds get plenty of time on it also. I recommend this for anyone who likes the look of copper & if you don't want squirrles to use it be sure & hang it from a place where they can't get to it. The extra large top of this feeder does pose some problems for them but they are persistant & can figure out ways around it.

4-0 out of 5 stars Holds a lot of seed
The birds and I are quite pleased with this feeder because it holds more than a week's worth of seed and has several perches to accommodate multiple eaters. Note that the top and bottom are plastic, not copper, but it is an attractive product. Mine is hanging on the front porch so the seeds stay dry, the squirrels can't jump onto it, and I can watch the birds from my kitchen window. The only assembly required is tapping the perches into place and screwing on the top. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Indoor gardening set
I am very pleased with the product. It was difficult to locate. The seller shipped the product in one day of placing the order. I received the product in excellent condition and packaged well (3 days!). The product is perfect for indoor gardening and small projects.

5-0 out of 5 stars Back to buy another one!!
I bought this for my sister who lives in a condo and babies her window boxes, only to have it appropriated by my gardener son. He fell in love with the tiny tools, and the perfect sized bag. The clippers are mine now, and they are wonderful. They are ideal for putting in my pocket and clipping as I go around the yard, and they clip thicker branches than my full sized fiskers. I clipped a 3/4 inch branch yesterday! Like I said, I'm back to buy at least one more, and I think I'll stack up for presents for all of my apartment dwelling friends...

5-0 out of 5 stars A great gift
My friends just loved it. Perfect for all the indoor gardening work. (...)

4-0 out of 5 stars Handy for container gardening or apartment dwellers
I bought two indoor gardening totes last Christmas -- one for my mother and one for myself. I have gotten a lot of use out of my tote, particularly while I lived in a third floor apartment.

While I still use the tools for my patio container gardening (the snipper and pruner are especially useful) I have purchased full-size garden tools for larger tasks. The tote is handy since even with the included tools and mister stowed there is plenty of room for seed packets, fertilizer, a pair or two of gardening gloves or a small hand tool. I like being able to pick up the tote and have all my basic garden equipment immediately accessible.

Considering Amazon is offering the tote forless than what I paid at the mall chain store I visited, I'd say the tools & tote are a bargain. ... Read more

Amazon.com Product Description

This attractive bench will provide years of durable seating in the garden or on a patio or deck. Its simple yet striking design combines a slatted back and sides with gently-curved armrests for a look reminiscent of Mission furniture. The bench is made from kapur wood, a high-density Southeast Asian hardwood with excellent weather-resistant properties. Light enough to move easily around deck or lawn, kapur requires no finishing and is exceptionally-sturdy--with enough oil to repel the ravages of rain, sun, and dew. Rust-resistant hardware and mortise and tenon construction also add to the piece’s strength and durability.

Beforeshipment, your new furniture received a generous applicationof teak oil. Teak oil provides protection from the ultravioletsunrays. Left untreated, Kapur will weather to a soft warmshade of gray similar to the weathering of teak. If you preferto prevent this weathering process, you may apply additionalcoats of teak oil. The frequency of necessary teak oilapplications will depend on the intensity of the sun in yourenvironment, but typically, one or two coats per year issufficient. Teak oil can usually be found at a marine dealer,hardware store, or internet dealer. If you allow yourfurniture to weather, you may later decide that you would wantto restore it to its original condition. This is possible byusing teak cleaner products, also available at most marinedealers and internet dealers. After following the instructionsfor cleaning, you will want to apply a coat of teak oil toprevent the weathering process.

The bench’s preassembled components fit together easily with the help of an included allen wrench. This item measures 48 inches wide, 28 inches deep, and 35 inches high.--Mary Park ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Deepest Sound
This chime was a gift for my wife last Spring. We loved it so much I've made all the different tones of Gregorian presents for special occasions. Now we have them all, so I'm starting at the top again to put more on the other side of the house. These need just a little wind to make a nice sound. The Baritone is amazing and worth getting first. The wind catcher is balanced nicely butit will take a bit more wind than for the smaller models. Consider putting it higher where more breezes will make it chime. Put it outside, near a window to enjoy the sounds indoors. A great and gentle addtiion to any outdoor setting.

5-0 out of 5 stars Woodstock chimes
Woodstock has the best sounding wind chimes I have owned. They can be tolerated by most anyone - even those who dislike the tinkling of most other chimes! Everyone who comes over comments on the beautiful sound of the chimes. Since they are properly pitched, musicians can even enjoy these! The baritone is my favorite, with its rich, warm lower tones.

Don't be taken back by their price - you get your money's worth with chimes from Woodstock.

My little brother got this chime for Christmas. I love it! It has the nicest sound of any chime I have ever heard! The Baritone chimes have a deeper tone, which is very soft as well like Swiss cow bells We have these hanging outside of the front door.I enjoy it each time we go out. Great ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

Featuring durable stainless steel construction and legendary Weber reliability, the Summit Gold line represents the peak of gas-grill performance. With an input of 44,000 BTUs per hour, this propane-fueled grill offers enough firepower to sear foods for that true-grilled taste. Four rust-resistant stainless steel burners run the length of the cookbox for exceptionally even and powerful heating without hot or cold spots, while infinitely adjustable burner valves lend the flexibility needed to cook with direct and indirect heat. A spacious 700 inches of total cooking area provides enough room for even the biggest groups, and includes a convenient warming rack to toast hamburger buns and a warm-up basket for grilling easily-burned foods like fish or vegetables. An electronic crossover ignition system lights all burners in succession with just the push of a button.The Summit Gold A4 also comes loaded with highly-functional extras such as a fixed commercial-grade thermometer, three sturdy tool holders, and a roomy enclosed storage area with stainless steel doors and a heavy-gauge steel bottom shelf. One removable and two swing-up work surfaces offer plenty of space to spread out sauces, marinades, utensils and other prep essentials plus, they're made from granite-look Thermoset for maximum durability, heat and weather resistance, and easy cleaning. Like all Weber gas grills, the Summit Gold also employs heavy-duty, stainless steel Flavorizer bars to eliminate flare-ups caused by lava rocks and ceramic briquettes. Fats and juices hit the angled bars and sizzle away, adding delicious, smoky barbecue flavor instead of flames. A slide-out bottom tray funnels grease into a removable catch pan for quick and simple clean-up. The Summit Gold A4 is as durable, safe, and efficient as it is convenient. Its stainless steel hood features double-wall construction, adding a layer of insulation to trap heat and protect against unsightly discoloration no matter what the weather. Rugged, weather-resistant wheels are crack-proof in the most extreme temperatures and allow easy transport, while locking casters prevent the grill from rolling while you cook. Burners even have screens to keep spiders from spinning combustible webs inside. Best of all, ten fasteners are all that's needed to put this grill together--meaning you'll go from box to barbecue in less than 40 minutes. Included is a 20-pound tank to hold liquid propane and an easy-to-read fuel gauge. The Summit Gold A4 measures 62-1/2 inches tall, by 60 inches wide, by 34-1/2 inches deep. Backed with a limited lifetime warranty, this grill’s made in the USA. --Mary Park ... Read more
