5-0 out of 5 stars great design, small size, unique product!
OK, this grill doesn't get as hot as the much bigger, much more expensive weber-type grills with multiple burners. That said, it still easily gets hot enough to cook a decently thick new york steak in just a few minutes per side. And as far as cooking with the lid off-- what do you expect for a lousy [money amount]!?!

On top of that, it's PERFECT for those with small apartment style balconies. It's economical on gas-- I use it pretty regularly and have yet to go through an entire large tank of propane in over six months of use. It's the perfect size if you're grilling a quick steak or two (or up to 6 or 7 hamburger patties) for one person.

The grill itself has the large gratings that leave pleasant, savory grillmarks on the meat. It's easy to clean, and doesn't cling onto charcoal and carbon like other grills seem to. The lid also has thoughtful little hooks on the inside part of the assembly screws, making it easy to hang the lid on the lip of barbeque itself instead of having to set it down somewhere. The little temperature guage on the front is useful for telling how fast the inside grill temp is heating up (essential for preheating the grill, something you should always do before cooking), although I don't rely on its accuracy in cooking/timing meat.

This is a great grill, a great idea, and great execution at a very attractive price. It's shown that it holds up extremely well after nine months of use, and I'd buy another in a heartbeat.

Those with the space/backyards and multi-family sized barbeque needs should look elsewhere, but just looking at it should tell you that. For the rest of us doing some quick grilling for 1-2 people, this could be the perfect grill.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great grill with nice features
I bought one of these grills three years ago to replace the standard aging $100 gas grill. It heats up quickly and cooks very nicely. The grill has wide flat porcelein bars instead of the thin chromed wires you would expect at this price. The lid has a thremometer built in, a nice touch. The grill is round, which doesn't leave hot and cold spots like some rectangular grill exhibit. The burner design is very simple, the top of the gas tube opens beneath a round cast heating plate which distributes heat very evenly. After three years, the grill shows no signs of aging.

My ex-wife got the grill, so I just bought another one yesterday. The quality and great features are still there.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good, but not Great
This is a perfect grill for small groups. I typically only grill for my wife and I so the size is perfect. It wasn't too difficult to assemble and the parts machining is excellent, everything fit together very well. I have only 2 problems with this grill. First, the hangers you attach to the lid to allow you to hang the lid from the side of the grill are quite a pain when placing the lid. Makes it difficult for the lid to fit snugly. Not a problem, I'll just take the hangers off as they don't work that well anyway. Second, I grilled on it 2 days ago, on a fairly calm day weather wise. For some reason the flame kept going out. Took me an hour to grill 4 steaks, should have only taken 20 minutes. Not sure what causes this problem as I haven't ready anyone else experiencing it. It's annoying enough that it keeps the grill from getting 5 stars.

5-0 out of 5 stars only one problem
we love the size of this grill.it is easy to keep clean.we are looking to buy another one and give our old one to our friends.the problem i found was the front leg rusted and broke away from the frame.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great for apartment patio
This thing is great. It's not suited for a 20-person cookout but for cooking for 1 or 2 people, or 3 times that many on occassion, it's great. I used full-sized propane tanks and they last over a year with using the grill 3 - 4 times a week for steaks, chicken, or fish. I HIGHLY recommend this product for apartment dwellers who want a gas grill but don't have the space for a full-sized unit. ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

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.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent product, easy to handle, simple design
I've been using this stand (and the hammock combo) for about 6 weeks now and I couldn't be happier. The stand is 5 pieces that go together easily, no tools, muss, or fuss. It was exactly what I needed since my yard has exactly one tree.

The hammock that Amazon basically gave away with the combo is not the best hammock you can buy (I mostly use my own) but you can't really argue with free. It is a almost too short for my 6' height and the ropes are quite a bit thicker than the hammock I had previously (and still mostly use). I take this hammock with me on picnics and such and figure it's disposable if it gets damaged while on the road.

I am not a small person, 6' 270 lbs., and I do have the hammock in the highest position using the chains, but I have had no problems with the stand or the hammock. Two good sized people and a child have used the hammock with no problems (still under the stated 500 lb. limit).

Because of the simplicity of design and the easy breakdown and setup I have taken the hammock to picnics and parties in my trunk (I do have to fold the back seat down to fit the long pieces).

My only wish were that the pipe ends had some kind of rubber seal, or maybe a locking pin, that would make it a little easier for one person to move the stand around when mowing (it comes apart easily if you try to pull on one end, but never while using it). If you have two people carefully moving it there is no problem, with one person you have to walk it back and forth.

5-0 out of 5 stars Cool Stand and Durable
This is a great hammock stand. I bought it for my husband along with a great hammock from amazon for his birthday last summer. This stand is so strong and durable. My husband and I and all 4 of our young children have laid in the hammock and it never wobbled. It's easy to move to mow around and the green blends in with the woods and grass around our yard. A MUST FOR ANY HAMMOCK USER!!

3-0 out of 5 stars Good but not the best
I bought the set with the hammock plus this stand. I will say it was worth the $99 I spent but it does have negatives. The stand has no interlocking parts. This makes the stand hard to move when it is assembled as it does not lock together. This annoys me as the locking parts would have probably cost an extra $3 on the price. Cutting corners like this seems almost foolish to me as the locks would be worth it. Otherwise the stand seems strong and works well. The hammock I recieved had a tag made in India and by the looks of it labor was not the only thing they saved on. The rope looks kind of cheap and the hammock needs to be hung high or when your in it you will sit on the floor. I guess for free I am happy enough with the hammcok but it is cheaply made!

4-0 out of 5 stars Omni Swings n' Things Hammock Stand,Green
I purchased the hammockstand and hammock in two seperate orders. I received the hammock than used the Ups tracking on the day they said it went out for delivery,itstated that the carrier refused it due to damage and that it was being returned to sender. The next day the Ups delivered it with an apology from the driver and said that he was told to deliver it to me. The box it cam in was worn,and nothing but tape all around holding the box together. After taking the stand out of the box it went together in less than five minutes. The hammock stand is great with my only complaint is how it was shipped. One thing also is the customer has to supply the hooks and chains which costs around four dollars.

1-0 out of 5 stars Doesn't Fit
I bought the hammock with accompanying stand. The rope hammock is way too long for the stand. My teenager weighs about 100lbs
and when he gets in the hammock,it stretches so much that he is virtually on the ground. Bought as Christmas present and what a disappointment this summer. Looks pretty, thus one star. I suggest you buy only the hammock and make sure you have two big trees to tie it tautly. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great to hold everything
I purchased the DB5000 to store all of those patio accessories that just seem to "build up". The deck box holds my chair cushions, candles and all of those kids toys. It's a great item to keep the patio looking clean

5-0 out of 5 stars LOVE THIS BOX
I wish everything in life was this simple and satisfying. This box took about 5 minutes to put together by someone who doesn't know what a philips screw-driver is. This box needs no tools; it snaps together; all the pieces are labled. It's nice and roomy, sturdy, secure and it totally keeps all sorts of odds and ends from the back deck in one neat place. Also, it says not to sit on it and by accident, my 300 lb aunt sat on it - well, nothing happened and the box is still in perfect shape. For 40 bucks and the fact that this box will be around for years; this is one of those rare, great bargains.

1-0 out of 5 stars Not large enough
It said that this box was large enough to hold chair cushions but it isn't.

These storage boxes keep my life jackets dry. I bought several and they hold the beach towels, water shoes, goggles, etc. I couldn't live without them.

I have recently purchased one to use on the deck for my chair cushions but it wasn't large enough for all of my cushions.

Originally invented and marketed in Germany, the Garden Weasel is still an amazing garden tool, even after 15 years of "As Seen on TV" advertising here in the States. Its self-cleaning rotary cutters run crosswise against each other, meeting about 1-1/2 inches below the ground to break the surface soil and creating a fine till with their scissorlike action. Use this tool to break up soil in large areas or wide rows or to scarify soil for seeding. If you remove a few of the blades, you can work on exceptionally narrow rows or around plants. By using the short handle (included), you can work in greenhouses or rock gardens. Clearly, there are many uses for this tool--it's hard to imagine, but after all these years, it's still one of the best cultivators on the market. Ingenious design, versatile applications, and solid construction have kept this tool at the top for decades. --Ariel Meadow Stallings ... Read more

  • Loosens the soil and does the weeding

4-0 out of 5 stars It actually works pretty well.
I bought my Garden Weasel about eight or ten years ago at a local (now defunct) home store chain. At the time I'd been using an inexpensive mini-tiller that drank gas and oil and jammed up regularly, and a couple of hand cultivating tools that took a lot of effort for little result. Being the lazy sort I'm always a sucker for something that claims it'll do my work for me.

I tried it in my 20x20 vegetable garden, and you know, it actually works. It's not a tool for breaking up hard soil- but then, my cheap power rototiller didn't do that very well either. The Garden Weasel does one thing, and that is weed betwween the rows of a vegetable or flower garden, so long as you use it on a regular basis. Leave the garden for a month, and you may as well get out the machete and the heavy dutytiller. But used for its intended purpose, it's pretty good.

5-0 out of 5 stars My veggie garden's best friend!
This tool is fantastic! It's dual handles, and detachable blades make it very versatile. The stainless steel blades clean up effortlessly under a house, or swished in a bucket of water (with no rust problems!) This tool saves your back, and knees from weeding your garden rows, and the small handle allows you to cultivate right up to the plant itself. Using the Garden Weasel once a week helps catch emergent weeds before they have a chance to root, and keep them from finding a home in your garden. The tines are 1.5 inches long, and will not harm your shallow rooted plants, like strawberries, etc. It does an excellent job of breaking up that top layer of soil, allowing water, fertilizer, and oxygen to help nourish your plants.

3-0 out of 5 stars Good for preparing soil for planting, but not much else.
This tool works good at tilling soil before planting seed, but I have not found much use for it other than that. It definitely doesn't work on established weeds, I found that large weeds just got all tangled up in the spokes and jammed it.

4-0 out of 5 stars It does what they say it does
It actually works pretty well. I was impressed.

It has a tendency to fall off the handle, and you should wear gloves when handling the blades, as they're pretty sharp.

1-0 out of 5 stars What? What the ... negative four million...
I bought mine at sav-on ten years ago and it was useless. We have sand for soil on a vineyard in the Calif. Central Valley. The sand was either too soft and the blades didn't spin or the sand was packed and the blades didn't penetrate but just scratched at the surface. The "Blades" are not even remotely sharp. They are just the cheapest cast aluminum you could imagine. They had to have been a quarter of an inch in width at their sharpest edge. Also the "blades" have an inch give at least with their attachment point when you forced them down. This acted like a shock absorber so you couldn't muscle them into the ground! I considered this product a true piece of junk.

I sure hope they changed the product to get people to give this five stars... ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

Legendary Weber quality, tons of thoughtful features, and built-to-last construction make this propane-fueled gas grill a solid choice for years of pure grilling pleasure. Three high-grade stainless steel burners run the length of the durable, thick-walled cast aluminum cookbox, inputting a powerful 36,000 BTU per hour and producing exceptionally even heat without hot or cold spots. Each burner is individually controlled to enable either direct or indirect cooking, while the infinite control valves allow exceptionally precise temperature control. The Genesis Gold C also adds a heavy-duty side burner that lets you prepare your entire meal in one spot, heating side dishes and sauces while your meat grills. 611 inches of total cooking area provide enough room to cook for even large parties and include a convenient warming rack, to keep already-cooked foods warm or toast hamburger buns, and a warm-up basket, to cook easily burned foods like fish or vegetables and to provide more warming space. Weber's Crossover ignition system makes starting the grill easier than ever, lighting all three burners in succession with just the push of a button.
Like all Weber gas grills, the Genesis Gold C features heavy-duty stainless steel Flavorizer bars to eliminate the 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 away from the burners and into a removable catch pan for quick and painless clean-up. The grill includes a roomy storage area with solid steel bottom shelf, while a swing-up work surface offers plenty of space to spread out sauces, marinades, utensils and other prep essentials. The work surface is made from granite-look Thermoset for maximum durability, heat resistance, and ease of cleaning, and features four sturdy hooks to keep favorite barbecue tools close to hand. The double-walled stainless steel hood adds a layer of insulation to trap heat and protect from discoloring.
Thoughtful add-ons and extra features elevate this grill above similarly priced models. A built-in thermometer monitors the temperature inside the grill for precise cooking. Rugged, weather-resistant wheels are crack-proof in the most extreme temperatures and allow easy transport, while locking casters prevent the grill from rolling during cooking. The porcelain-on-steel control panel includes a meat temperature chart on the enameled surface for easy reference, and all three burners 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 are a 20-pound tank to hold liquid propane and an easy-to-read fuel gauge, so you'll never run out of gas mid-meal. The Genesis Gold C measures 63 inches high by 64-1/2 inches wide by 30 inches deep. Made in the USA, it's backed by a limited lifetime warranty. --Mary Park

4-0 out of 5 stars Nice Product, Horrible Manual
Just received the rain gauge from Amazon. The instruction manual is at least as bad as everyone says. It makes no mention of the reset switch in the outdoor unit along with numerous other omissions. The cost of phone & email support plus perfectly good units returned in frustration has got to be more than that of a proper manual. As a retired electronics tech (who occasionally wrote in-house procedures) and a native Oregonian, this manual from an Oregon hi-tech company is embarrassing.

On the other hand, looking the unit over, it appears to be very well made. The level of workmanship and quality of the circuit board and wiring in the outdoor unit is much higher than you would expect from a consumer electronic device in this price range. The batteries included were Mallory, not a mystery brand. The indoor unit has a nice heft and its switches have a quality feel.

In setting up the outdoor unit, the two screws that hold the collector/funnel assembly are easily lost and probably metric. Be careful! The screws for the battery box cover, on my unit, were "captive". Loosen until you feel them 'bump' on the thread insert and they will stay with the cover. Remove the plastic insulating strip from the battery box, reinstall the batteries and press the "RESET" switch with a straightened paper clip. As larryaol mentioned, it's a good idea to leave the cover open until everything is working.

The indoor unit also has a plastic insulating strip in the battery box that must be removed. That done and the batteries installed, press its "RESET" switch with the paper clip. The upper display should stop flashing once the two units establish contact. Although the manual makes no mention, clearly the radio link isn't continuous. It seems to need up to 30 seconds for the display to update. With the rain collector still open, you can carefully remove the tape that holds the tipping bucket mechanism and manually tip it a couple of times to check operation. Its resolution is 0.04" per tip. Wait about 30 seconds for the rainfall reading to update.

Another serious manual omission is in clearing the rainfall reading. The manual instructs you to "Press and hold the RAIN RESET/SINCE button for 2 seconds" but this doesn't work. Oregon Scientific's call center was helpful. What you need to do is press & release then immediately press & hold. This also loads the current "SINCE" date in the lower display.

Hopefully, someone at Oregon Scientific will do something about the instruction manual.

4-0 out of 5 stars Can't Stress this enough!!
The unit once setup is pretty slick. Setting it up is another story. Once you remove the exterior sensor battery cover and remove the plastic strip BE SURE TO DEPRESS THE RESET BUTTON next to the batteries. If you don't do this (the manual barely mentions it) you will have to remove all 10 screws again to gain entrance to the reset button. I too, like a previous reviewer have difficulty clearing the rain amount, it seems to work when it is in the mood, not me.

4-0 out of 5 stars Quality Product but Terrible Instruction Manual
Before attempting to set this product up, it would be worth your while to read some of the other reviews of this product on this website. They have suffered through trying to understand one of the most poorly written operating manuals I've ever seen. Don't let this dissuade you from buying the product because it's a great rain gauge. Just be aware that the manual simply doesn't cover the operating features and instructions in enough detail to allow anyone to properly set the unit up. The most notable omission is about the RAIN/HISTORY - Since reset feature. Read the remaining reviews and enjoy the product.

4-0 out of 5 stars thanks amazonian reviewers - you made set up easy
Setup would be impossible without the reviewers below. After reading their instructions, the whole thing took 10 minutes and the gauge is really fine.

4-0 out of 5 stars Instructions = 0 Stars
As others have mentioned, the instruction booklet is almost worthless. I went to the manufacturer's website: www.oregonscientific.com, it wasn't any better.
TIPS:
1. You need a very small jewelers screwdriver, pref. a phillips head.
2. There are 10 tiny screws (2 sizes) you must remove from the outdoor unit! Have containers ready to hold them.
3. After opening the outdoor unit's battery cover, remove the batteries, take out the clear plastic spacer, reinsert the batteries, and MOST IMPORTANT-- press the reset button next to the batteries with an unbent paper clip.
4. BEFORE closing-up the outdoor unit, do the following on the indoor unit--
5. Remove battery cover, remove the batteries, take out the clear plastic spacer, reinsert the batteries, and press the indoor unit's reset button above the batteries with an unbent paper clip.
6. Wait a minute or two for the indoor unit to lock in on the outdoor unit's signal. The top two lines of the display will flash until it finds the signal.
7. If the display keeps flashing, press the OUTDOOR unit's reset button again.
8. Then press the indoor reset, again.
Once the display stops flashing, then close-up the outdoor unit. Don't jiggle the outdoor unit or it will record that as "rainfall."
9. I could not get the rainfall total to reset with the "rain reset" button. I had to do the full reset on the indoor unit.
10. If all else fails.... Reset, reset, reset! Outdoor unit first! ... 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

5-0 out of 5 stars Terrific for cutting herbs and flowers!
I love these and use them all the time.

5-0 out of 5 stars I cried when I lost mine
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!

5-0 out of 5 stars Great For Deadheading
I have found these snips to be great for deadheading.

1-0 out of 5 stars Way too small
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. Rather, "deadheading flowers", "flower gathering" and "houseplant care". I have returned them because I wanted pruning shears for my garden work. These were completely inappropriate for that task. ... Read more

When you need to grill a feast to feed a small army or a heavy turkey for a festive celebration, you need a reliable and durable rotisserie. Besides providing even cooking on all parts of your delicacy, a rotisserie is a pure pleasure to watch. Weber's kettle barbecue rotisserie includes a heavy-duty electric motor, a wooden rod handle, and (more importantly) a counterbalance for smooth turning and less motor wear. When your turkey is too heavy for the rotisserie, the rotisserie turns until the heaviest part of the bird gets to the top of the rotisserie. To prevent this problem, just slide the counterbalance up and down on its handle until your turkey turns smoothly and gently, grilling to a delicious golden brown. This rotisserie fits all 22-1/2-inch kettles. --Rhonda Langdon ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful accessory
I love this rotisserie. So far I've only done chickens, which came out nice, brown and delicious! Can't wait to try a roast. Worth every penny.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best puchase I have made in a while
This rotisserie will make some of the best food you've ever tasted. It is worth every penny of the cost. Two improvements I'd like to see though are the forks that hold the food are hard to clean (you need a toothbrush and some comet); also, I wish they would sell a basket that closed around the spindle so you could load food easier. Very quiet, easy to use, and for the lazy BBQ'r; you can put a chicken on and do absolutely nothing and come back 1 1/2 hours later and you are ready to eat. Cheers to Weber for another great product.

5-0 out of 5 stars The best BBQ toy I have ever bought!
I love this thing. I just got it, put two chickens on, and 1.5 hours later was eating the juiciest, tastiest chickens I have ever had. No comparison with my smoker or beercan style...the rotisserie beats either method hands down. I had debated the purchase, thinking that this was just going to be another gadget I would use once and then never again. I had been told that the meat comes out no differently than if you just lay it on the grill, and that the motors on rotisseries are loud and obnoxious. Neither statement could be further from the truth. The meat is juicier due to the self-basting aspect, and the motor on this unit is virtually silent. Also, having the counterweight is a great plus for irregularly shaped items. This is a great purchase, and very well built in typical Weber fashion. Highly recommended.

5-0 out of 5 stars Buy this today!
I concur with all the other reviews-this thing is da bomb!! Try pork roast on there-it is to die for. The rotisserie has never let me down, whether I'm cooking chicken, pork, prime rib, roast beef, lamb-you name it.
Now mine is about 3 years old and the skewer does get a bit charred especially if you use smoke often. You need to SOS it and then you are good.
You'll never buy one of those black plastic trayed chickens at the grocery store again! Superior to ANY restaurant!

5-0 out of 5 stars A great tool
Weber's rotisserie couldn't be easier to install and to master. Instructions are very clear.

So far I've spitroasted a leg of lamb, a pork shoulder and a chicken, and all came out juicy, crispy and flavorful.

The motor works very well. Only weird thing is the very short length of the powercord, a decision only a lawyer could have made. This way, if you trip on your extension cord, Weber won't be liable. I can't see how you could possibly use this rotisserie with the included cord alone. If you happened to have an outlet close enough to your ideal grilling spot, the grill would be way too close to your house! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars If you have Asian Tiger Mosquitos
Don't use the Octenol cartridge for Asian Tiger Mosquitos because it repels rather than attracts them. Read and follow the placement directions.

After getting 6-15 bites by those nasty critters everytime I went into the garden and being held prisoner indoors for a few months, I decided to spend the bucks on the Defender. My husband was skeptical, but I was desperate.
Initially, it wasn't properly placed and I thought that I had made an expensive mistake. After we read the placement directions, viewed the CD and moved it to the recommended area of our yard, the Tiger mosquitos flocked to the Defender to dehydrate and die. We have won the battle with the Asian Tigers and now are using the Octenol cartridges to catch the everyday garden variety mosquitos.

We started using the Mosquito Magnet on July 1 and are very happy with the results. We still have some mosquitos and I get bitten every now and then, but I don't have to coat myself with OFF and I can enjoy a cup of coffee or a glass of wine in the garden.

5-0 out of 5 stars Works great for me!
I read these reviews before I bought a Mosquito Magnet Defender, and, though there seemed to be some disagreement as to whether this machine actually works, I found that Consumer Reports liked it, so I decided to shell out the money to buy one.
I just set up the machine in my backyard on July 3 after reviewing the placement assistant on the included instruction c/d. It was very easy to set up (once I had the propane tank, it took about half an hour including 20 minutes warm-up time). Mosquitoes started swarming around the machine after it had been running for an hour. In three days I've emptied the trap twice. I counted over 100 mosquitoes each time (a tip: open the trap in a plastic bag to prevent the live mosquitoes from flying out). I'm sure I that's a fraction of the probably three trillion mosquitoes living on my half-acre lot, but - hey - it's a dent.
I could actually go out on the deck today (in the rain) and not get bitten. I'm looking forward to see how it works over the next month (how long the manufacturer claims it takes to break the mosquito breeding cycle).
At this point, I'm very happy with my Mosquito Magnet Defender.

5-0 out of 5 stars I Love This Thing!
The Mosquito Magnet is destined to be one of those indispensible items to have in-and-around anyone's home. This thing is terrific. Before I got my computer, DVD, and cell phone, I couldn't imagine life with them, now I cannot imagine life without them. So it is with the Mosquito Magnet.

I live in Maine, Mosquito and Black Fly Central. The bugs here are the size of small housecats, and are happy to hold you hostage until you pay a handsome ransom... of your blood. I researched bug-catching devices and bug killers galore, in Consumer Reports, all over the internet, everywhere. The Mosquito Magnet was hands-down the most-recommended item around. Amazon clearly offered the best deal. Free Shipping, $50 off my next purchase, and a free box of octenol cartridges. OK, I was sold.

The assembly was a breeze. Turned on the propane tank, plugged the thing in, and wahoo! I have had it for just three weeks, and upon emptying the bug box for the first time, it was absolutely packed with a solid brick of dead mosquitoes and blackflies! Ewww! Thousands and thousands of them! Unbelievable! Damnedest thing I ever saw! And everyone of those little buggers I "offed" was one less to bite me in the @ss. And more importantly, one less to survive thereafter, laying eggs and spawning the next generation of little fiends.

I have already noticed a dramatic decrease in ANYTHING buzzing about me while noodling around the garden and grill. This little darlin' works slick as snot on a doorknob! And my home is on a lake in the woods of Maine, with lots of fresh water and foliage everywhere for the little buggers to live in. Not anymore, thanks to the Mosquito Magnet. I was a skeptic at first (my wife, too, thought the money would've been better spent paying a high school kid 10 cents apiece to swat them one at a time!), but now having lived with it, I'm so thrilled that I'm telling EVERYONE about it!

A caution: When they say "Change the tank every 21 days", they mean it. I tried to weasel a few extra days out of the Rhino tank, and at the end of day 22, the propane tank was spent. Make sure you have a spare handy, so you can make a smooth transition. I've read about other folks' problems with gas flow and starting problems. No such problems here. It has worked perfectly in every regard.

The other deal is, I see no reason why you'd need the bigger, and much more expensive models. My property is about 5 acres of woods, but the little Defender is true to its name! Does a terrific job, and even the specs on the larger models fail to provide convincing data on why or how they should be superior.

You, too, will love this thing. It's crazy to spend umpteen thousands on a home, and then be held hostage by bugs such that you cannot enjoy it. The Defender is the best $300 you'll ever spend for your yard.

4-0 out of 5 stars So far, great!
I live next to conservation land, and my Mosquito Magnet has caught 1/2 of it's basket full of mosquitos in less that one 21 day cycle. Mosquitos hover around it all the time.

The only downside is that it was hard to get running the first time. It may require level ground (my first try was at a slight slant), and I had problems with getting it to feed from my propane tank.

1-0 out of 5 stars Don't bother in Maryland
Used one of these for 6 weeks on the Eastern Shore of MD and didn't catch 6 mosquitos in that time. They don't tell you until you open the box that you shouldn't use the octenol if you have Asian Tiger mosquitos which is what we mainly have.

Out the price of 2 tanks of propane and a third spare tank I had purchased, but I returned the "magnet" to Hom. Depo. for a refund.

They shouldn't sell these things in states that they don't work in. ... Read more

Hang on to Toto when you fire this baby up--the air blast out ofthis blower is phenomenal! The literature says it produces up to a 215mph current, and they're not kidding. It converts in a few seconds to avacuum by removing the inlet tube and cover; just hook the front of thevacuum tube on and snap. Attach the generous bag and you're ready topick up the mountain of leaves you've blown. As it vacuums, the fanimpeller will mulch the leaves down, too, reducing 10 bags to 1. Welike the ergonomic handle and the comfortable strap. The tubes aresturdy and won't crack if you accidentally whack them. It's a lightunit at 7.3 pounds, and it's not nearly as loud as most, though at 69decibels, you'll still want to wear ear protection. Bravo, Toro!--Kris Jensen-Van Heste ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars great for the price
I have been using this blower vac for a few months now and am really shocked by how well it works. I was a bit skeptical at first, but the blower changes very easily into a vacuum and vice versa. I use it to blow leaves into a pile then suck them up to use on my garden as mulch, bye bye leaves and bye bye weeds in my garden. The job of raking and sweeping leaves that used to take me hours, now only takes minutes. I can blow down my patio, suck up all the leaves and have the place looking great ten minutes before guests arrive. If you are like me and have a great backyard that you entertain in then pick this baby up and cut your work time by 50%!

Get yourself a long extension cord with this purchase also. The noise and pollution of this blower/vac is virtually non existent. I was shocked by how low the noise level was. I use the low setting for around other garden plants and when i really need the power switch it to high. Like another reviewer i had a small delay in shipping but it was worth the wait!

5-0 out of 5 stars Great value for a very useful tool in a small yard
I wish I'd bought this Toro several months ago. We have a small yard in San Diego. Our next door neighbor has a huge ficus tree that sheds a lot of leaves in our yard. We already have 20 or so bags of debris stacked on the side of the house. I tried this blower out for the first time yesterday. In low power mode, it was able to push the leaves out of a cedar-chipped area without distuburbing the cedar chips too much. It's noisy, but not so noisy that you need ear protection. The vacuum mulcher seems to work well so far. Low power suction doesn't pull in too much, but high power works well. For a really large amount of leaves, it would probably be easier to rake, but for our small California yard it's perfect. I was concerned about the plastic impeller being able to handle all pea-sized seeds among the leaves, but so far so good. I'm not sure if the compression is really 10-to-1, but it definitely makes a difference. I haven't tried it with wet leaves, but in San Diego the leaves aren't wet very often so that's not a concern. The unit was easy to set up out of the box, and easy to switch back and forth between modes.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great value. Awesome blower
THe blower is awesome, and not terribly loud.

The vac isnt good for vacuuming your van's carpet, but for clearing grass clippings off of your driveway, it is beautiful.

For the price this simply cannot be beaten.

Hey, all you whiny people who say they've looked all over heck and back for a new impeller. It's identified on the Toro site as # 100-9068 and my local hardware store charged $7 plus shipping, so I bought two. Yes, they do break easily, but I don't think I'll try sucking any more rocks...

I love it because its 1) Easy to start 2) has superb power 3) runs smoothly...I am on the fairly small side and find its perfect for me over those big ol' gas blowers I simply can't handle much less start up. My husband loves it because, even though he is a big guy, it makes small work out of our large orchard of walnut leaves!!!!

You can lock the lid into place with the pivoting legs and carry this lightweight grill around in one hand.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great little grill
I've owned a Weber Go-Anywhere for a couple of years now and it's been a regular part of my outdoor cooking. Gets up to temperature quickly and is great for grilling simple stuff like salmon, chicken and sausages. The food doesn't taste *quite* as good as my mesquite-fired kettle BBQ but the Go-Anywhere also doesn't take 30 minutes to fire up.

The piezzo lighter flaked out on my Weber a couple of months after I bought it but it's pretty easy to light with a match. As another review mentioned, they do rust pretty quickly but they're really sturdy and basic. It grills as well as it did when I first bought it.

Strongly recommended for folks looking for a small, no-nonsense (or frills) gas BBQ.

This Webber gas grill is a joy to use. It is easily portable (perfect for tailgating, picnics ...) and simple to use. You can buy the propane tanks in any department store ...I have found that one propane can... is enough for at least 3 grill times (for 2 people).

The food itself cooks well and has a nice flavoring. Dogs, burgers and ribs have all come out very well using this grill. There is enough surface area to feed about 3 adults on average.

My only complaint would be that the gas starter button is a little flimsy; you need to be careful when starting it. But this is a great product and I love using it.

5-0 out of 5 stars There just isn't a better portable grill anywhere.
I remember in college my roomie had this old gas hibachi purchased at WalMart for about $25. It was all we could use at the apartment, so it had to be small. It cooked unevenly, never got super hot, but got us through two years of school.

Fast forward nine years later, where $50 doesn't seem like a huge sum of cash anymore. Based on some reviews here, I ordered it up. I have cooked ten meals on it - pork, chicken, burgers, fish tonight. It cooks better than ANY grill I have used before, full-size or not.

It gets pretty hot, for one. The drip pan over the pro-style burner tube vaporizes all of the fallen juices, smoking things up real good and giving food a great flavor. You just have to let it crank for 10 minutes on high to get up to temp, then adjust the temp to your liking.

You can tell out of the box the difference Weber makes in grill making. It is heavier than you would think. The burner tube is a full length unit, covering the enetire cooking area. The regulator is even better than on the portable grills you find at K Mart. The drip pan replaces those terrible, smoky, greasy lava rocks. The ignitor is a nice touch.

Some keys to good grilling though - always, always keep the lid on. Don't poke your food - lets all the juices out!

Only cons to this unit -- the disposable propane tanks get expensive, and this grill goes through them pretty quickly (if you use the grill every day, of course). And lastly, the right side of the unit cooks ever so slightly cooler then the rest of the unit (good for veggies, etc).

Best portable anywhere!

5-0 out of 5 stars Outstanding Little Grill
I bought this grill specifically for tailgating at PetCo Park when my beloved Milwaukee Brewers came to town. Since PetCo doesn't allow charcoal grills, I had to settle for cooking my brats over gas. I was able to cook four brats, two ears of corn and some beer soaked onions in tin foil all at the same time with this grill. There was even a breeze that day, and it didn't blow the flame out. The only small complaint is the starter didn't work too well - luckily, I brought a pack of matches along just in case. Otherwise, this grill worked just fine!

5-0 out of 5 stars Great product, don't review this until you OWN it!
I can't believe someone reviews a product without actually owning it, that isn't fair to the product. Anyway, it DOES include a battery (not sure exactly what type) but it's inside of the grass shearer. Just plug it's cable into the A/C and it charges. When it's ready to be used, it works like a charm in hard to reach areas of the garden. For me, I find it especially useful around patio lights that can't be mowed around easily. I'm sure I'll find other areas of the garden too!

The included tools are very nice. They have rubberized grips and look like quality tools. The kneepad could be a little softer, but it'll do. The hand pruner worked perfectly to oust a HUGE weed in the garden. Gloves are decent too.
The carrying bad is large, tough, and better than expected. A great addition!
It even comes with a 30-day no risk satisfaction guarantee. How can you go wrong for $24.99? If you bought all these items seperately, it'd be way more than that. Just a pair of garden gloves can be $15!

We just moved into our first single family home less than a week ago and I took a risk and pre-ordered this Black and Decker gardening set. It's a perfect set. Great for first time home owners like me, who literally don't own one gardening tool! (NONE!) A great set, and I am happy with it!

Happy gardening!

3-0 out of 5 stars What kind of battery does this use?
Does anyone know whether this uses the same 3.6 Volt Versapak battery as the Scumbuster and Dustbuster? Black and Decker is certainly making it difficult to determine. I looked all over the box in The Home Depot and couldn't find the answer. My guess is they are trying to hide the fact that the battery probably isn't included.
It's aggravating, because I might be willing to buy this anyway since I already own Versapak batteries, but they treat you like an idiot and leave you guessing.
I tried to submit a question to B&D web site, but, of course, they want me first to create an account and give them all my personal information.

Amazon.com Review

While mowing the lawn may never be considered a recreational activity, this rear bag mower from Black & Decker makes the chore as close to fun as it will ever get. With its 24-volt battery, which delivers 5-horsepower gas equivalent at peak torque, this cordless electric mower represents the top of Black & Decker's line of lawn mowing products. During our field tests, this orange powerhouse stood out above other mowers for ease of use and performance. Its versatile operation allowed us to mulch, bag, or expel the debris from its 19-inch cutting path. Switching between the three methods was as easy as removing the catch bag and the mulch plug--easily performed tasks when the mower is not running.

The most obvious difference between the new generation of electric mowers and the heavier gas-powered mowers of yore is the start-up. The ease with which this mower starts is almost stupefying. Simply pull and hold the thin handle lever, then pull the ignition lever, and presto!--the engine is running. To minimize safety risks to young children, a removable safety key must be inserted prior to starting the mower.

Once started, this mower runs like a dream and is much quieter than older gas-powered models. In addition to the lack of noise, vibrations were also dampened by the cushioned handgrips, a feature that makes mowing a much more comfortable experience. Another innovation is the method by which the mower is raised and lowered. Where once it was necessary to adjust each wheel individually, the height of the mowing platform is now controlled by a single squeeze of a single lever, which allows for seven positions from 1-1/2 to 3-1/2 inches. While this mower is much lighter than a gas mower, we did find that this Black & Decker cordless model, weighing in at 76 pounds, is heavier than its corded relatives.

The only disadvantage this machine seems to have is in the power department. While there were no serious problems during our field test, it was necessary to slow down or go back over thicker sections of grass in order to make a completely clean cut. This cordless model also requires a substantial charging time when first out of the box: the manufacturer suggests at least a 16-hour period initially in order to get peak performance and maximum run time. According to Black & Decker, the battery will be 70% energized with four hours of charging. When fully juiced, this mower can be expected to cut between 1/2 and 1/3 of an acre per charge. Though the charge is one aspect that needs to be considered when deciding whether to purchase a corded or a rechargeable mower, we found the added maneuverability of the cordless over the corded model far outweighs the inconvenience of charge times.

When you've finished mowing, the handles fold back, making it easier to store this mower in a tight garage or shed. It comes with a 30-day no-risk satisfaction guarantee and a manufacturer's full two-year warranty. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars 6 Years and Running...
Huh. I've had one for 6 years now and never had a problem with charge capacity (I wonder if it's because I keep the charger connected all winter when not in use). It's been everything it was advertised to be - quiet, no fumes, reliable, easy to use, economical. I have an average size suburban lawn and have gone up to 3 mowings without recharging. It doesn't make as smooth a cut as a high-vacuum gas mower but that's an acceptable tradeoff considering the advantages (and the only reason I gave it a 4). The reviewer who claims you're using more fossil fuels (and creating more pollution) when using an electric mower is shortsighted. Electric power generation plants have very stringent pollution controls and the net effect is that electric powered devices contribute much less pollution to the environment and waste less fossil fuels than internal combustion engines. That reviewer should do some real research instead of spewing pseudo-science. Besides, the people who use that argument usually pull out a 2-stroke string trimmer to finish the job - talk about pollution (and noise). I'm actually considering buying a new CMM1000 since I gave my old one away. Sounds like there may be some reliability issues with the newer ones (orange, mine was old enough to be green) - I'll have to look into that.

5-0 out of 5 stars Works fantastic and I don't miss smelling like fumes!
I have used a Black & Decker CMM1000 19" Cordless mower for over three years. While my lot is 1.5 acres, the open grass area is only about 1/3 of an acre. The battery life is plenty to cut this entire space with no problems. If your lot is bigger, you can still use this mower, you'll just have to break up the mowing over a few hours or two days (to allow recharge time). It can recharge to 50% run-time in only about 2 hours.

I have to echo others that the one lever height adjustment is a great design. It only takes seconds to alter the cutting height. No exhaust means you don't smell like gas fumes, and the low noise is also a plus. I have to say I have not missed the oil changing and other maintenance needed for a gasoline powered mower.

It should be noted that a replacement battery is only about $100. But even now as I head into my fourth year using this mower, I am seeing no loss of run-time from the original equipment battery that came with my CMM1000. Even if I need a $100 battery every five years or so, a maintenance cost that breaks down to only $20-$25 per year is cheaper than the cost of maintenance and gasoline you'd use on the typical gas powered mower over that amount of time.

1-0 out of 5 stars Heavy plastic beast dies after 2 summers
Listen to the negative reviews. I bought a CMM1000 in early 2002. I have a very small lot, no hills - should be an ideal candidate. I had to put it out for large-trash pick up this morning.

It worked OK for the two years it would hold a charge. But it was just OK, not great.

Operation: It's not self-propelled, and it's a good deal heavier than any gas mower I've owned (that battery is a huge, solid chunk). That makes it hard to push, even for a fairly big guy like myself. It has small, hard-plastic wheels that tend to be slippery. I did like not having to keep a full can of gasoline or extra oil around in my garage, though.

Performance: It never cut grass very well, especially on the higher blade settings. Mulched OK, but had no blowing power. I wasn't able to bag clippings, really, because they clogged up in the expulsion chamber. The blowing power is so bad that you can't even blow clippings off your sidewalks with the mower.

Build quality: The entire thing is plastic, except for the blade, handle and wheel axles. The washer that holds the blade on is a tiny piece of plastic with a tiny overlapping edge. Mine wore out after the second time I sharpened the blade and tried to remount it. Even the padding on the handlebars shredded after only three months or so.

Longevity: Here's the worst thing. When I revived it for this year, it lost all ability to cut for more than about 3 minutes at a time. Starts up fine, but bogs down even on normally tall grass. The service center told me I need a new battery, and that's $100 plus installation.

I've always followed the battery instructions to the letter. Biggest waste of four hundred bucks I've ever seen. Wish I could give it negative four stars, but one will have to do.

5-0 out of 5 stars CMM1000 19"
The Black & Decker CMM1000 19" works great, I purchased one to mow around my swimming pool. The mower mows great and holds a charge, the mulching keeps the grass out of the swimming pool while the mowing job keeps the grass looking great. If your looking for a mower that will not only do a good job, but will last, its the Black & Decker CMM1000 19"

2-0 out of 5 stars Not as expected
I have used this mower about 2-3 times. The battery charge lasts about 45 minutes before it goes into yellow region of charge indicator (time to recharge). When cutting grass, the mower leaves some larger blades of grass partially uncut and you have to go back and recut the grass. This is not a big problem if you have a small yard but with a larger yard it can be very frustrating. This problem may be due to the narrow blade on the cordless mower which is much narrower than my gas mower. I have gone back to using my gas mower for most of my mowing since it doesn't choke down nearly as often and I don't have to deal with recharging after 45 min. or going back and recutting grass. ...

Perfect for cookouts, tailgate parties, or car camping, Weber's Smokey Joe Gold grill is the classic traveling grill. With its 14-1/2-inch-diameter grate, the Smokey Joe Gold easily cooks three steaks at a time or twice as many burgers. The porcelain-enameled bowl and lid resist rust and deliver even heat. When it's down, the lid lock doubles as a lid holder, letting you slide the lip out of the way while you cook. And, when the feast is done, simply fasten the lid lock over the top handle, pick up, and go. As an added bonus, Weber throws in 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 Great Little Grill for Home or Travel
This is the third little Weber I've had in the past 20 years - I've never worn one out; the first two were stolen! I like the locking handle on the new model. One great feature of these grills is that when you are done cooking, you can close all the vents and the fire will go out in about 15-20 minutes, saving whatever's left of your charcoal for the next time. With the handle locked, it won't spill in the back of your pickup on the way home.

It really does do a great job of cooking, as good as the larger Webers, just for a smaller crowd. We had a Mulberry tree trimmed in our yard and I saved all the chipped up wood to use for smoke flavoring. You still need a charcoal fire for heat; just throw in a handful of chips before you put the meat & corn on the cob in and close the top vent down to make it smoke. Mmmmm, Mmmmm!

You can eat like a gourmet anywhere you tote this to! Just add a cooler full of longnecks.....

5-0 out of 5 stars excellent grill makes great gift
we've used the smokey joe for 10-12 years,had to replace the original 2 years ago. we gave each of our three children one for xmas.you won't find a better grill for steaks, burgers or dogs and we also use it for a slab of ribs occasionly. it vents well,which means you can control how your meat is cooked. the gold smokey is built even better than the original smokey, we will get one as soon as our smokey wears out, maybe 9-10 years from now! don't be fooled by lookalikes, get the weber.

5-0 out of 5 stars We always go back to our Webers...
We have owned a weber of some type for over 25 years, (charcoal that is). This Smokey Joe is the greatest. You can jusify firing up a small load of charcoal for just a few burgers or steaks with this one. Haul in the boat to the beach. Haul it in the car for a picnic. You won't be sorry you spent the $ on this even as a second grill to your big one.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great for "Cooking on the Road"
The Beautiful Pacific Northwest
This is the perfect charcoal grill for taking on a trip. We recently took an RV trip with friends throughout Oregon/Idaho/Washington. This little grill was perfect for an end of the day BBQ of steaks, chicken, or ribs. The close up and lock handle is perfect for packing it back in the RV. The side and top vents are designed for keeping the coals going and the lack of bottom vents is a PLUS because the ashes stay in the grill, not in your RV storage compartment.

This one exceeded my expectations and allowed us to cook in the outdoors. Thanks Weber!

In '78 or'79 I bought a Weber "sloppy joe" coal burning barbeque.
It costed over $40.00 back then. It is similar to you "smoking joe" but no clamping handle on top

It's still a favorite of mine, but the name is worn off the handle, and some enamel is missing.

Love that old barbeque. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Very Good Grill
I live in an apartment, and was forced to buy an electric because no gas or charcoal grills are allowed. I picked this one, and I will say that I am very, very pleased with this grill. You still put charcoal briquets (included) into it, and it cooks VERY well, with no added tastes that you sometimes get from charcoal or gas grills. Top notch product, for a good price!

5-0 out of 5 stars Great grill alternative...
I have had this grill for about a month now... I did a lot of research since I had to get an electric grill (by to my complex rules). This is a good grill. I cooks like a gas grill except you must keep it covered to cook. The food comes out great, the size is good... I recommend it to anyone with strict complex requirements, I may actually buy one for my father as well.

3-0 out of 5 stars Poor quality pieces
We live in an apartment building that does not allow charcoal or gas grills, we decided to purchase this one. Many of our neighbors have it and the food always tastes great. We are in the process of putting ours together and I can tell you that the construction of the grill is extremely cheap... The screws that come with the grill to attach the accessories do not fit the brackets. So my husband ended up stripping the screws to fit them in. Overall this grill is very poor quality. I guess the old adage is true - they don't make things like they used to.

5-0 out of 5 stars Easy to use and maintain
This is the best small grill you can buy. Our priority was a small footprint, and that's what we got. It uses a minimal amount of space and produces the same delicious results as the most expensive large grill. I am a 50 year old woman who is pretty easily frustrated by mechanical devices, but found this easy to build. In fact, I built two of them one summer because my neighbor was so amazed at the quality and ease of use of this grill. The instructions were easy to read and follow. Amazon has an excellent price. I paid more for mine. Buy the plastic cover so you don't have to clean the outside of the grill, too.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great to use--the devil to put together!
A wonderful product. It arrives unassembled and was a bear to put together--however we are not the handy types. The 800 helpline was soon on speed dial.

Once assembled, the patio caddy is a jewel. Compact, easy to use, easy to clean, almost invisible on our deck. It's even somewhat portable on its little wheeled base. For the money a great investment...just the right size for us and the way we entertain. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars An Oasis Outdoors.
My husband and children purchased the Castaway Rope Hammock as a birthday gift for me. I love the detail of the craftsmanship. We purchased a frame from a local retailer so that it can be moved around the yard depending on the need at the time. The 13 foot length just fits in the frame. I wanted the hammock, so I could enjoy the out doors with my family. Do to illness, I have to take alot of down time, most of the time it is indoors, because it is hard to get comfortable outdoors. But now, when I need down time, and everyone else is outside, I use my hammock,the large width even allows my children to snuggle and enjoy our time together. It is relaxing, comfortable and just fits my need for an " Oasis".

3-0 out of 5 stars Two people? I don't think so!
The ... description says this hammock can accommodate two adults. Not bloody likely! Maybe if those two adults were Kate Moss and Lara Flynn Boyle; but an average-weight woman and man? Uh-uh. You'd be resting on the bar of the hammock stand; this hammock is way too saggy for that.

I'm a little concerned about the fact that it's made of cotton rope; I think nylon rope would be much more durable and weather-resistant. Still, it's not a bad hammock for the price (free with the purchase of the stand), and it is dangerously comfy. Practically every time I lie down on it, intending to spend some time with a book, I end up taking a nap. D'oh!

I'm going to Scotchguard it and probably still take it in when the weather gets icky. We'll see how long it lasts; I won't feel ripped off if I end up buying a better hammock next year.

5-0 out of 5 stars Try it: You'll like it!
I brought a hammock stand home because I thought it might be something we could enjoy but the store didn't have any more hammocks. I found this one online here at Amazon[.com]. After the hammock arrived, our fun started with hooking it to the stand. We weren't sure how many links to leave hanging; the first try yielded a seat on the ground. It took three tries and a great deal of laughter to get the right height so we could swing, not sit. Now when we can, we thoroughly enjoy relaxing (one at a time, though) in our back yard. I usually take a pillow, the book I'm currently reading, maybe a light cover in case it's a little cool, a clock for when I get curious about the time, and occasionally a snack. Two hours, usually including a nap, can pass like nothing. It's really a neat experience, relaxing and refreshing, and a way to put some calm into craziness. Even my husband, who snickered at the idea at first, has really enjoyed it. He lays on a comforter and says it's totally comfy.

We found the hammock to be well-constructed. It is everything the product description says it is. Somethimes it's hard to judge what a product will be like in "real life" when just a picture is available. However, the description and the product are exact matches. Go for it! You'll have a great time!

2-0 out of 5 stars Not the best - Only buy it if it is free!
I ordered the stand and recieved this hammock for free with it. I am glad it was free as it is cheaply made. The tag on it reads made in India and it looked it. This hammock sinks to the ground when I sit on it. I am a big guy but not close to the 400 pound weight limit I read when I bought it. This thing is only good for free. I am sure it will not last long.

1-0 out of 5 stars It's like it's made of elastic instead of cotton.
I got the hammock/hammock stand combo deal... not such a good deal at all. The hammock is attached to the stand as tightly as possible, without any slack in the chain, and this hammock sags all the way to the ground with just one person. When adding a second, you may as well just lie in the grass.
And it's not as though I was pushing the 400 pound weight limit -- hubby and me combine are barely 250 pounds.
The most unfortunate part is that the expense to return it all negates the refund, so this ends up being over a hundred dollars thrown away. ... Read more
