    1. A Copper Chef Egg Maker that takes away the stress of trying to properly boil, fry or poach your eggs in the morning.


    Promising review: "Best way to hard-boil eggs! This cooker is the easiest, best way to cook hard-boiled eggs. I never have to worry about forgetting them because it shuts off automatically. And if I let them cool completely before peeling, they peel like a dream. Many family members also bought this and are believers now, too." β€”lvmygkids

    This jar features permeation and a lid to promote airflow, which ultimately extends the life of your cloves while being completely disguised in an adorable, countertop jar.

    Promising review: "This garlic keeper is very spacious as you can see from the photos. There are three holes at the bottom to allow for air flow to keep the garlic fresh. The container has a beautiful flower design on it to compliment any kitchen decor. It is light blue in color. It is made of ceramic, so hand wash it so as to not chip the paint. It says 'fresh garlic' so you know what container it is. I love how it blends into the kitchen but is also practical in use. I would highly recommend to anyone needing a way to keep garlic fresh for longer to get this product." β€”Jasper111

    Promising review: "The Instant Pot is AMAZING!!!! I have always had a basic slow cooker and when I received this at first I was overwhelmed not knowing how it worked or what to do with each function but it was a lot easier than I thought it would be. We made our first meal in the instant pot the other day which was ribs and what would normally take 4-6 hours in a slow cooker took only 35 minutes using the meats/stew button on the instant pot and the ribs fell off the bone! I couldn't believe I could have dinner done that quickly! Greatest cooking appliance I have ever had so far." β€”Brazilchick32

Even though it is larger in size, it's not as heavy as it would appear to be. Looking forward to some stir-fry chicken, and also plan on getting a stir-fry recipe book just for this Wok. I'm very pleased with this product and would recommend it to anyone." β€”Debbie

    Promising review: "I have bought many boxes of these, they work so well. The way I get the best use out of them is to simply turn the water pressure to almost droplets, you want to maintain a constant stream but just enough to keep it flowing, the less water it will foam more and clean more, the more water, the faster it will flush it down the drain!" β€”Donald

    Product photo showing model using the O-Cedar ProMist Microfiber Spray Mop to clean up a spilled liquid

    Promising review: "The O cedar Pro Mist Max spray mop is my favorite by far. First off the cleaning head is at 15-1/2 inches wide and approximately 6 inches deep, so it cleans a much larger area in just one pass than the others that I have used. The head flips over so you can use both sides of the pad and the best of all is you use your own household cleaner diluted with water so there is no special solution or pads to purchase later. Machine-washable pad really does grab and hold grime and dirt very well and is very absorbent. Fast and easy to use. Great product." β€”GoodCop
