The Terrific Schumacher PSJ-2212 Jump Starter

After having the Schumacher PSJ-2212 DSR ProSeries 2200 Peak Amps Jump Starter for approximately 6 months, we have found that it is an invaluable tool. We hunt and fish and have taken it with us for the boat battery, the 4 wheeler batteries, and the lawn tractors batteries. We have also used the plug in for a tire pump for all of our equipment.

I would say that we have used it at least twice a week since we got it. We have not had to recharge it very often and the ability to check the internal battery is an added benefit. It also worked well for a small heater that we used in the deer stand. I don’t know what we would have done without it and it is so much easier then plugging in a charger and running electrical cords everywhere.

The BaByliss 2289U Glamour Waves Curling Tong

These BaByliss 2289U curlers are great, I bought them as a gift and wasn’t expecting too much because they’re not expensive but I’m surprised. My wife tried them out and found they heat up really fast and have different heat settings. She has long, thick hair and they work really well. She has found that the curls do fall out after a while if she hasn’t used hair products but then it gives a natural wavy look. My wife loves them.

The Bosch ART 26-18 Li-Ion Cordless Grass Trimmer

The Bosch ART 26 cordless lithium battery system is great and a big improvement over the old Ni-Cad system which should be consigned to the dustbin of history. The blades do wear down a bit in length very quickly to start with, but then carry on working for a considerable time. They are much less fiddly than having to stop and re-thread broken line all the time. As for the cutting blade, I am not yet convinced. For normal grass/weed, this is great. Does not tangle or get recoiled or have to be pulled out and cut. Make sure you buy the right kind because the figure of 8 type won’t work.

The Excellent Panasonic ER415SC Trimmer

I have owned several different makes of trimmers and this is by far the only one I would purchase again. My previous trimmer used to cause the occasional yelp from a painful hair yanking, but this Panasonic trimmer has been completely painless. Cuts well and hasn’t caused any pain so far, what more could you want from a trimmer?

Great little Leaf Vacuum

This is small but it packs a punch. It can blow or suck. It is light enough to care and it holds a charge for long enough for me to be done using it. I particularly like this model because not only does it act as a leaf blower, but a vacuum too. Unlike my Shop-Vac, the Black & Decker LSWV36 CANNOT suck up wet items, but it can get those annoying small debris trapped in the corners of the garage. In essence, I first blow out all the loose debris and then suck up the rest.

My Sunbeam GCSBTR-100 Travel Iron

The Sunbeam GCSBTR-100 is agreat little iron. It’s small and very light so it would be easy to pack if need be. There’s no stopper for the water but since it’s so small it’s not really a problem as you’re more likely to need to refill it more often than once while you iron.

A Great Thermometer

The Braun Thermoscan Ear Thermometer  is a great thermometer. Better than the artery one that I could never get to work. It is fast and quick, key with a wiggly toddler. The kids don’t mind having their temp taken with it and it is very accurate.

The Great X-ACTO Spira Electric Pencil Sharpener

After wearing out a couple of battery-operated pencil sharpeners over the years, I decided to find an electric one. I like this one because it looks more like an art object that a functional sharpener. However, it works just fine. I particularly like the ease of emptying it.

Chef’s Choice 810 Gourmet Egg Cooker

I never thought I would ever praise the virtues of an electric egg cooker until I had an egg that had been steamed. Wow, what a difference. Even cooked to the hard state, both the white and yolk are melt in your mouth soft and tender. A completely different texture than you get with boiling. The steamed eggs are also easy to peel and this cooker doesn’t require piercing the shell, like others do. Once you’ve steam eggs, you won’t ever want to go back to boiling them.

The Chef’s Star Smooth Edge Automatic Can Opener 

Our old Black and Decker electric combo jar and can opener went on the fritz the other day. I ordered one of these for her and it works great!!!!  Although a bit pricey, it works like a charm. I like the way it cuts the top off without leaving any sharp edges. No problem opening all sizes of cans.
