I often share things I’ve bought and while I don’t generally share normal day to day appliances and gizmos, I share those that are a bit out of the ordinary, or to me they are anyway. Do you ever wonder what I think of them after having used them for a while? Well, here you go!
It’s been a while since I bought this T-Fal iron. I got it for about $30 at Amazon, where it’s no longer available. I love it! Doesn’t leak a drop, and has great steam. I am using bottled water in it because our water goes through the water softener and it says not to use softened water.
The BlackBerry . . it works as it’s supposed to work. I’m not one of those who lives with the cell phone attached to my ear. In fact, most of the time I don’t have a clue where it is but when I’m traveling, it does what I need for it to do. The other day I was out and wanted to know the name of the auto audio guy here in our town so I got out my phone, googled “auto audio Nevada, MO” and up popped the shop with the phone number. I clicked on the phone number right there and called the shop! That’s pretty neat! As far as doing what it’s supposed to do, it’s great. As far as whether I could live without it . . yes, I could but I have to have some kind of cell phone so I’m glad I have it though if I could only grab one thing to take with me, I doubt it would be the BlackBerry.
This was pretty pricey as far as rice cookers go and I wondered if I’d regret buying it but my old rice cooker was pretty worthless. I can cook white rice great on the stove but some of the more exotic brown rices gave me a hard time and I often didn’t have a spare burner on the stove. This rice cooker is amazing! I’ve made several types of brown rice (Golden Rose is our favorite) and they’ve always turned out perfect! Even Vince thinks it was worth the price and that doesn’t happen often . . Mr. Bargain Hunter!
Not sure I can describe how much I love this little gadget. It isn’t for everyone but if you’ve been wanting one and it’s in the budget, please order it! I had read about it for a while and then kept wondering if I’d rather have the Kindle DX or the Kindle 2 so I waited til the DX was out, read reviews and decided the Kindle 2 was for me. I love it! Did you know that you can download the first chapter or some small portion of a book for free to decide if you want to buy it or not? Even with authors that I love, there have been times when I bought a book and just couldn’t get into it. Being able to read the first chapter pretty much tells me if I’m going to want to read the book or not. I’m so glad I got this!
OK . . that’s it! I’m not buying anything else for a very long time but for those who wondered how I like some of my recent purchases, now you know.
