5-0 out of 5 stars This Baby Gets It Done
I've owned several other portable grills (Grill-2-Go, $20 propane grills), but this one is by far the best. You know it is something special when it arrives fully assembled except for attaching the lid.

The cast iron grilling surface makes those great searing marks and lets the food cook evenly. The regulator on this grill really allows you to adjust the size of the flame (unlike cheaper grills). The drip pan is also great and replacements can be purchased at local hardware stores.

We use this grill with our RV and it is the perfect size for our family of 3. I don't see how we could use the full size Weber Q --- the baby Q is more than large enough for us.

Kudos to Weber!

5-0 out of 5 stars Amazing!!
I was thinking about purchasing the Q Grill but was hesitant because of the size. Then I saw the Baby Q "new" this year! All I can say is that it's an amazing grill! Well crafted, very very portable and cooking with it is amazing! The food does not taste like propane whatsoever. And it makes perffffect grill marks!!! Just fantastic!!! The built-in starter is a good added bonus for this gas grill!! Also, the grill is bigger then what it looks like online. You can easily cook two chicken on this thing!!

great little grill ive limited space its just the rt size for me.works better then some of the large high priced grills that ive tried

5-0 out of 5 stars Best Portable Grill
10 out of 10. Cast iron grate and overall design delivers the best grilling I have ever enjoyed. I am all thumbs when it comes to grilling, but the BabyQ has never disappointed. Cannot recommend more highly.

3-0 out of 5 stars Cool Grill but ... What were they thinking!
I like the grill a lot, but WHY IN THE WORLD would they make it to use a 14.1 OZ propane conister??!! I have YET to find one of those canisters, so I will have to take the other peoples advice and bend the support rind to accomodate the 16.4 oz conisters. POOR product development by Weber!

P.S. - I DID finally find a 14.1 propane canister at Lowes. They are kept with the other fuels used for torches and welding equiptment in the hardware isle. ... Read more

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.

"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

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

Weber's Go-Anywhere gas grill adds convenience to the fun of camping and tailgating. This compact unit has a surprisingly generous grilling area--large enough to fit four medium steaks. The push-button ignition system makes lighting the fire easier than ever, and the patented heat-distributing Flavorizer bar ensures that your food cooks evenly and efficiently every time.

You can lock the lid into place with the pivoting legs and carry this lightweight grill around in one hand. Built-in lid hangers allow you to rest the lid on the side of the grill to create an effective barrier against the wind. The triple-nickel-coated steel grate is easy to clean, and the porcelain-enameled steel lid and cooking box are built to last. ... Read more

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.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great portable grill that won't disappoint
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 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

All the chime's parts move independently, even the dragonfly's body and wings, for an eye-catching flutter. The sun shape at the bottom and the whimsical swirl at the top catch the breeze to set the chimes in motion, and the brass bells sound five different notes when struck. Designed for decorators with a bold palette, the chime ranges from deep purple to brilliant orange to metallic pink in color. Rust-resistant and ready to hang, it measures about 30 inches long, weighs just 2 pounds, and comes with a chain and hook. --Emily Bedard ... 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!

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." ...

A great gadget to mount on a boat, enclosed porch, or outdoor deck by the beach, this battery-powered wireless station forecasts your local weather for easier planning and is about the size of a remote control. The LCD is divided into five areas of information to provide a full picture of the weather. The station reports the humidity for indoor locations and the temperature in Fahrenheit and Celsius for both indoor and outdoor locations using a remote sensor. For more accurate outdoor readings, the base unit can receive information from up to three different sensors, which can each be placed up to 80 feet away. A forecast icon on the LCD displays weather predictions based on changing air pressure and is about 75 percent accurate for any 12- to 20-hour time period. The device also has a clock with a 12- or 24-hour time mode and dual alarms with snooze. For precise time-keeping, the gadget has a built-in antenna system that receives signals from the WWVB radio transmitter in Fort Collins, Colorado, which is in turn is regulated by the atomic clock. The wireless temperature station requires two AAA batteries for the receiver and comes with one remote sensor, which requires two AA batteries. --Cristina Vaamonde ... Read more

I much prefer the EW-2 from Speedtech, as it offers a great backlight (when a button is pressed), temperature alarms (I use a sensor in my freezer and the alarm goes off when it gets too warm, saved my goods three tmies!!), and the included sensor has a detachable probe.

5-0 out of 5 stars The FIRST Perfect Gift For Dad
I have tried every year to get my dad something he would use and actually like. This is the first item that he has raved over. Everytime we visit, he has another added compliment for it. He checks it every morning before getting ready for work and every night before going to bed. He also likes the humidity feature that tells you if it is too dry in your home.

Because of all the good remarks my father has for it, my husband wants one now too!!! I'm sure we will be getting one soon for our own home.

UPDATE: We purchased one for ourself and it stil works wonderfully... we've even added the wireless rain gauge to our collection.

I liked this product the moment from I received it except that the remote sensor was not working. I tried to reinstalled it once or twice more based on the instruction but it still gave me no reading. I wrote an email to La Crosse Technical Suppor(suppor@lacrossetechnology.com) for help. No Answer. I wrote again. Still, no answer. I feel sorry that I had to return this product without giving it a second chance. But I had lost my confidence in this company after 10 days of waiting. :(

We bought this because we love the weather channel and can't get enough weather information. We are weather junkies!

This unit was chosen because of the price and the fact that it included an outside sensor.

2-0 out of 5 stars Honest comments from a bonsai expert
This "plant light" may be okay for a low grown plant that needs little light, but is definitely not as good as it claimed for most bonsai trees for the following reasons:
1.The 9 watt florescent light is not sufficient for bonsai (as a full grown tree).
2.The sensor only works in regular potting soils but not bonsai soils since bonsai soils promote drainage.
3.Although the pebbled base holds water, it only provides a minimum of the surrounded humidity to your tree since the place is not enclosed.
4.The said "Intelligent Four Seasons" light has never been useful indoors since the indoor's temperature has never changed as it has done in nature.That is, your tree will not go through dormancy indoors; an insufficient light during winter will definitely kill your indoor tree.
Get a 50 watt Phillips made Agro-Lite plant light bulb plus a humidity tray in your local hardware store instead.It costs you less than $10; and, it will provide a better result.Even with the help of the plant light, it is recommended that your bonsai tree needs sufficient sunlight in order to thrive!

5-0 out of 5 stars Works great in the office
We purchased the Intelligent Plant Light and liked it so much at home, I purchased one for my office.It works great with African Violets, my plants are thriving like never before, thanks for such a great product!

4-0 out of 5 stars Science takes a Holiday
Nine watts may suffice for a few tiny houseplants close to this light, but their growth will be slow indeed -- maybe that's what customers want. Varying daily length of light exposure to mimic nature works for some plants, inducingbloom cycles, but the effect will be entirely blotted out if the plants are exposed even briefly to light during the dark cycle. So unless you want to set aside a special area for your plants that is always dark when this lamp is off, the fancy variable timer is of no benefit. Any properly-tended garden-variety timer will do as well, and fluorescent or halide lamps commonly available in a wide range of wattages will be at least as efficient in the home or greenhouse. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars A shame it arriveddamaged....
My table arrived today with the underside completely shattered. I am returning it in exchange for a new one. One good note though- the bottom is made of some sort of safety glass so most of the glass was contained. A bonus for people with pets and children. Now I will await the arrival of my new one...not soon enough.

5-0 out of 5 stars great product and value
this table is great, dimensions are as listed, it's very nice and easy to assemble.looks like it costs way more than $19.99!

5-0 out of 5 stars Fabulous!
Great price for the table - very nice looking..this will be used on the back patio during summer and it will also be used in doors in the winter to hold my orchid plants.

2-0 out of 5 stars Actual size not as listed
This is a great LITTLE table.It measures 14 inches square, not the 23 inch x 16 inch described on Target's web site.

1-0 out of 5 stars Stated Dimensions are NOT Correct
The dimensions stated in the on-line ad has this table size at 23W x 16D x 21 1/2 H. This table is 14 in x 14 in by ? H (I did not measure height and the table is elsewhere). It's not worth my time to return it for $20. Very mis-leading info. If there were ZERO stars, that's what I'd give Target's web site. The table is pretty nice for it's small size ... Read more

This inconspicuous digital weather forecaster can be mounted anywhere. An internal sensor detects indoor temperature and humidity, while a remote 433-MHz cable-free thermo-hygrometer reports outdoor temperature and humidity within a 100-foot range. Temperatures are displayed in Fahrenheit or Celsius. A memory recall function records temperature and humidity highs and lows, and displays them at the push of a button. Programmable alarms ring when a particular temperature is reached. A happy face icon appears if indoor humidity is at a comfortable level. Trend indicators for temperature, humidity, and air pressure signal changes in weather within 12 to 24 hours, or indicate the weather pattern is holding steady. Additionally, four weather forecast icons--sunny, partly cloudy, cloudy, and rainy--predict conditions for the next 24 hours. The unit also operates as a digital clock with dual alarms. This forecaster can gather information from up to three remote sensors (one included). Four AA batteries are required to power the main unit, and another two to run the remote sensor. Oregon Scientific covers this gadget under a 12-month warranty. --Cristina Vaamonde ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars A slow death
We followed the directions on this plant, but it had a slow death. People said it would take some time to adapt, so we cared for it but it never seemed to adapt. It finally did die after the Amazon 30 day warranty. Now we are stuck with a dead plant and a pot. We'd love to try a replacment plant if Amazon is up for sending one. ... Read more
