    Promising review: "I bought these to replace a much more expensive pair that had worn out, and I'm thrilled with the quality! They'll be toasty warm on the coldest January mornings, but the comfort is such that I'll use them year-round. The sole is sufficient that they can be worn outside or as driving shoes on long trips. I may buy more of these for gifts this year." —Netmom

    Promising review: "For years I’d used a hand mixer to make cookie dough and cake / brownie batters, and I’d go through so many mixers because none of them were strong enough. I finally decided to make the leap to a stand mixer and couldn’t be happier with how much easier baking is with it! Everything from batter, dough and frosting, is so much easier and quicker to make." —Charlie
