I bought this inexpensive knife set to use for everything from chopping veggies to cutting up fruit. Colors are easy to spot in my utensil drawer. I have a good expensive knife set in a block on my counter - but sometimes I just want a knife that doesn't require hand washing. I know that since I put these in my dishwasher, they won't last as long as only hand-washed ones might, but they were reasonably priced and I don't expect them to last forever. I like the matching covers also.
We selected this hood because it had the best combination of features available at the time. After using it for over 3 months, there are some picky things that continue to annoy me. Lighting is much brighter than it needs to be. I usually use the low setting, but don't see much difference between low, med and high settings. Also, halogens are hot and use much electricity. Hopefully, I can find LED replacements when they blow. Also, the filters are great, but do not fit easily in our 18" dishwasher. It would have been better to have 3 smaller filters covering the same area. Overall, a great product, but room for improvement...maybe some after-market upgrades could be made available.
I was looking for a runner large enough to cover the area between my stove and sink / dishwasher. A runner that stays put and does not move around on a heavy traffic area in my kitchen. We have recently remodeled our home and the new floor is light color travertine. I needed a runner to protect the floor. This is a perfect match for what I needed. the color is a nice brown tone and it does not move around when you walk on it. it cleans with vacuum cleaner. I can also hose it down if I need to wash it. I am very happy and recommend this runner / carpet.
