Promising review: These smart plugs are the bomb! I have this lamp in my bedroom behind my bed that is almost impossible to reach so I used one of the plugs for that. The lamp has a dimmer switch so I set it where I want it and then Alexa does the rest. I used the other in another hard to get to spot. I used to use a timer there. Honestly, that worked fine too. It’s amazing how we’ve ever done without these little luxuries.
Promising review: Works great. My wife and I have had this new opener for nearly a year and have not had any problems with it. We like to leave it plugged in all the time and having it sitting on top of our wine refrigerator (which also has blue LED lights inside). The blue glowing lights compliment each other and look cool. We enjoyed this opener so much, we purchased another one for a friend as a birthday gift.
Promising review: This magnetic wristband is also amazing for sewing! Perfect for my little clips and needles! My husband also used it to do some of his woodworking and loved how convenient it was for nails and screws! I definitely recommend this magnetic wristband to pretty much anybody because it has several uses!
Promising review: I bought this to keep my tea warm I figured I could use it on the cup but actually decided to try it on the pot I have a small 24oz pot and I sip on tea all day and it stays quite hot to where I have to let it cool a bit before I can drink it[.]
Promising review: This scale is exactly what I was looking for. It has great weight accuracy, and I love the black sleek design. A must for me was the anti-skid pads, and these do not disappoint. It’s very thin, and comes with batteries to immediately get you started out of the box. It also has a unit converter which is pretty cool!
Promising review: This is the first time I’ve really liked an air freshener product. The Bluetooth capability provides for custom settings, giving just the right amount of scent as needed. The aromatherapy scents are better than you will find with other companies with similar products.
Promising review: This is very easy to setup and make your home smart. I'm very bad and lazy in switching off lights so this smart plug really help me. It was easy to set up and manage. The build quality is very good. It is sturdy and certainly doesn't feel flimsy or cheap. Size is small and doesn't cover another plug. Works well with Alexa too.
Promising review: These 3 garden tools are just want I wanted. Easy to open packaging. They are very sharp and easy to use. The lock on each one works well and is easy to engage and disengage. I used them within minutes and was delighted with how well they cut.
Promising review: I bought this for my second television and it is much faster than the Roku stick I have in the other television. For the price, you can't beat it! Extremely easy to set up and use. No complaints. I'm going to replace my Roku stick with this device.
Promising review: I’m in the middle of eating the first sandwich I made with this and had to tell you all that it’s great! I have ADHD so simply toasting an English muffin while cooking and egg usually ends up with something overcooking so I never make my own breakfast sandwiches anymore. This ... is a game changer. It was super easy to use and I washed it before I used it and that was easy too. I put on a timer for 5 minutes and it came out perfectly. If you follow the very clear directions it’s foolproof.
Promising review: This Smart Strip was a great buy, no doubt. The app is well designed and it was a breeze to set up and get connected. I was able to link this to Google Assistant in no time. I love the time scheduler feature. I built a nice wooden desk and mounted this strip under the desk for [a clutter-free look].
Promising review: This is one of the best purchase I bought recently. We moved to a condo with a double sink and little counter space, I needed a dish rack for pots and pans and small items that need a quick wash and this is exactly what I needed. Bonus it's nice looking.
Promising review: These make a nice difference for cluttered countertops, desks, bedside tables & the car. USB & phone charging cables are now out of the way but not fallen behind the furniture. I use the different configurations of cable holders & diameters to match what is needed for the area. The 16-pc bag was more than I need so far but [I] know they'll come in handy. Total happiness for OCD nerds!
Promising review: I like that it clips onto my desk. I use it after my daily walk and whenever I feel overheated. I did a lot of research to find the best desk fan for me and I am happy with my decision to buy this one. It's easy to position it exactly how you need it and reposition it as needed as well. I like the two speeds. It is not loud enough to bother my cubicle neighbors so that is great as well.
