Replacing my Toastmaster Can Opener

Hamilton Beach 76380Z Can OpenerCheckout the Hamilton Beach 76380Z Can Opener

I’ve purchased a few electric openers over the past years and none were worth the bother until I got this Hamilton Beach Heavyweight with removable washing unit. I love the feature that allows you to touch one button to pop the cutter off to clean it. I will probably buy another as a back up, because you know how it goes, anything that really works gets discontinued. Grab this one while you can!

Hot Towel Cabi Works Great


Hot Towel CabiHot Towel Cabi perfect size for my office

I was really debating between this one and their mini hot towel cabinet. This one is awesome. It doesn’t slam shut like others that I have used.

It has a bottom rack and a smaller top rack that is perfect for putting hot stones on or a neck pack. And the temperature is awesome! Love love love it.

Most Bang for your Buck rotary tool


Black & Decker RTX-6Using the Black & Decker RTX-6 Rotary Tool

The Black & Decker RTX-6 is one of those fantastic tools that you never knew you needed. A knock-off of the more expensive Dremel motor tool with little to be found wanting. Older Dremel’s were notorious for getting too hot to hold. This tool stays cool even over prolonged operation.

I’ve got to wonder why someone would pay 2 or 3 times the price of the RTX to get a Dremel… I suppose name recognition has a lot to do with it, after all people do refer to these things as “Dremel tools” not “Black and Decker tools”, but that doesn’t seem like a very wise way to make purchases.


I love my Normande Lighting Bankers Lamp

I love lighting. We have some antique lamps, and some replicas. This item fits right in. It’s solid, elegant and well made. Even the chain fob is weighty, lending substance to the experience of turning it on. The shade is glass. While the lamp needs simple assembly, no tools are required. I like it!
