Harry Potter: The Complete 8-Film Collection
Reviews
"When searching on Amazon for this set, you'll notice that there are 2 sets, both with all 8 movies, both with the same number of reviews. What they don't tell you is that the discs are in 4 separate cases, 2 movies in each case. But to be clear on this, the 3 extra discs are just bonus content from the last 3 movies. All of the other movies have the bonus features on the same disc. Now for the OTHER set being sold: This set, with the cover being of the castle, is smaller and more compact. However, this set contains only 8 discs (1 for each movie), with NO Bonus Content discs. Still, any Harry Potter Collection is worth buying. ***UPDATE April 2017***. There's been a little more confusion because Amazon has added a couple other collections and newer Blu-rays of single movie of Harry Potter. Here are the links for the above mentioned collections that I reviewed: "3 Faces of Harry" collection (currently $65 on Amazon) -- https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00AQNOCZ0/ref=cm_cr_ryp_prd_ttl_sol_0. "Hogwarts Castle Cover" collection (currently $60 on Amazon) -- https://www.amazon.com/dp/B005OCFHHK/ref=cm_cd_asin_lnk. Amazon has changed their Harry Potter supply lately. ***If you Search "Harry Potter Blu Ray Collection", it WILL NOT show you the "3 Faces" collection so please use the link that i've provided above***. ***I would also like to make an important note of feedback from readers. It's another collection that is European made and most of the time, the discs are not playable on North American Blu-Ray Players."

Wonder Woman
Reviews
"The setting in 1918 puts us in a time when women were on the verge of revolution, and the presence of Diana clashing with patriarchal ideals is not only historically logical, but elevates the film to a modern allegory. It's one of those movies that follows superhero tropes and Joseph Campbell's heroes journey, but keep things fresh so it never once feels derivative. She is able to communicate her characters thoughts and emotions without words, she has a powerful and commanding presence, she is elegant and intellectual, she is witty and clever. You can see a clear distinction between the way she carries herself in Batman V Superman compared to Wonder Woman, further showcasing Gal Gadot's subtle and dedicated performance. I am not a big superhero fan, but the second time I saw this movie it effected me just like when I returned to see Star Wars or Lord of the Rings. If you don't like it, then that is without a doubt your problem, because as a lover of films and not superheros, it's near perfect film-making and I will not be surprised if this gets nominated for Oscars, it deserves them."
"The storyline in a nutshell: Diana leaves her paradise Island of Themiscyra that is magically hidden from the rest of the world to fight alongside men in a war to end all wars. It is not just plain adventure but has a narrative focused on the increasingly treacherous world with diminishing tolerance and morality."
"You’ve seen the trailer footage: Diana Prince, Wonder Woman, clad in Greco-Roman armor, pausing to stand tall amid a fire-blackened landscape, before charging into overlit tracer bullet fire. The footage doesn’t make entirely clear that she’s just risen from a British trench in the Great War, crossed into No-Man’s Land, and begun to charge the German line. Where Snyder’s superheroes battle alien invaders, like Superman, or pummel the living daylights out of each other, Wonder Woman faces humanity’s greatest weaknesses. Rather than marching into battle gloriously, Great War soldiers hunkered in trenches for months, soaked and gangrenous, seldom bathing, eating tinned rations out of their own helmets. First, though Diana speaks eloquently about her desire to stop Ares, the war-god she believes is masquerading as a German general, this story is driven by something more down-to-earth. Comic book writer William Moulton Marston created Wonder Woman as an essentially female version of Superman’s American values, an expression externalized in her clothing. But this Wonder Woman stays strictly in Europe, fights for high-minded Allied values rather than one country, and apparently retires to curatorship at the Louvre. Recall, Zack Snyder’s Superman learned from his human father to distrust humankind, and became superheroic only when threatened by Kryptonian war criminals. Ares offers Diana the opportunity to restore Earth’s pre-lapsarian paradise state by simply scourging the planet of humanity."

Harry Potter: Complete 8-Film Collection
Especially fine is the interplay between Harry (Daniel Radcliffe) and his schoolmates Ron (Rupert Grint) and Hermione (Emma Watson), as well as his protector, the looming Hagrid (Robbie Coltrane). Writer Steve Kloves and director Chris Columbus keep the spooks in check, making this a true family film, and with its resourceful hero wide-eyed and ready, one can't wait for Harry's return. Demonstrating remarkable versatility after the arthouse success of Y Tu Mamá También , director Alfonso Cuarón proves a perfect choice to guide Harry, Hermione, and Ron into treacherous puberty as the now 13-year-old students at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry face a new and daunting challenge: Sirius Black (Gary Oldman) has escaped from Azkaban prison, and for reasons yet unknown (unless, of course, you've read J.K. Rowling's book, considered by many to be the best in the series), he's after Harry in a bid for revenge. This dark and dangerous mystery drives the action while Harry (the fast-growing Daniel Radcliffe) and his third-year Hogwarts classmates discover the flying hippogriff Buckbeak (a marvelous CGI creature), the benevolent but enigmatic Professor Lupin (David Thewlis), horrifying black-robed Dementors, sneaky Peter Pettigrew (Timothy Spall), and the wonderful advantage of having a Time-Turner just when you need one. The familiar Hogwarts staff returns in fine form (including the delightful Michael Gambon, replacing the late Richard Harris as Dumbledore, and Emma Thompson as the goggle-eyed Sybil Trelawney), and even Julie Christie joins this prestigious production for a brief but welcome cameo. Thus, the young wizards' entry into puberty (and discovery of the opposite sex) opens up a rich mining field to balance out the dark content in the fourth movie (and the stories are only going to get darker). Harry (Daniel Radcliffe, more sure of himself) has his first girl crush on fellow student Cho Chang (Katie Leung), and has his first big fight with best bud Ron (Rupert Grint). Meanwhile, Ron's underlying romantic tension with Hermione (Emma Watson) comes to a head over the winter ball, and when she makes one of those girl-into-woman Cinderella entrances, the boys' reactions indicate they've all crossed a threshold. Michael Gambon, in his second round as Professor Dumbledore, still hasn't brought audiences around to his interpretation of the role he took over after Richard Harris died, but it's a small smudge in an otherwise spotless adaptation. Starting off from the dark and tragic ending of the fourth film, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix begins in a somber and angst-filled tone that carries through the entire 138 minutes (the shortest of any HP movie despite being adapted from the longest book). This welcomes back characters like Mad-Eye Moody (Brendan Gleeson), kind Remus Lupin (David Thewlis), fatherly Sirius Black (Gary Oldman), and insidious Severus Snape (Alan Rickman), and introduces a short list of intriguing new faces. In the meantime, a semi-psychotic bureaucrat from the Ministry (brilliantly portrayed by Imelda Staunton) has seized power at Hogwarts, and Harry is forced to form a secret society of his own--lest the other young wizards at his school be left ill-equipped to defend themselves in the looming war between good and evil. In the meantime, Professor Dumbledore (Michael Gambon) seems to have finally removed the shroud of secrecy from Harry about the dark path that lies ahead, and instead provides private lessons to get him prepared. Within his mind he holds a key secret in the battle to defeat the Dark Lord, and Harry is tasked by Dumbledore to uncover a memory about Voldemort's darkest weapon--the Horcrux. Despite the long list of distractions, Harry, Ron (Rupert Grint), and Hermione (Emma Watson) still try to focus on being teenagers, and audiences will enjoy the budding awkward romances. Now that all the action takes place outside Hogwarts--no more Potions classes, Gryffindor scarves, or Quidditch matches--Daniel Radcliffe (Harry), Emma Watson (Hermione), and Rupert Grint (Ron) shoulder the film almost entirely on their own. trip to Gringotts Bank, then back to Hogwarts, where a spectacular battle pitting the young students and professors (a showcase of the British thesps who have stolen every scene of the series: Maggie Smith's McGonagall, Jim Broadbent's Slughorn, David Thewlis's Lupin) against a dark army of Dementors, ogres, and Bellatrix Lestrange (Helena Bonham Carter, with far less crazy eyes to make this round). Only the epilogue (and the lack of chemistry between Harry and love Ginny Weasley, barely present here) stand a little shaky, but no matter: the most lucrative franchise in movie history to date has just reached its conclusion, and it's done so without losing its soul.
Reviews
"Excellent movie adaptations of an incredible book series."
"Conveniently packaged size-wise, however.... the circular tabs for snapping the middle of the blu-rays do not stick out far enough to prevent disks from falling."
"Deathly Hallows discs have running commentary which was fun but skipped big chunks of the movie which I didn't like."
"For the price, this is hard to beat."
"Nice to have the blue ray set for an awesome series of movies."
"I love the HP series and I'm glad I have them all on Blu-ray now."
"Thought that the case would be a bit bigger, more of a box size set, but it's the size of a normal blue ray movie, just maybe a bit thicker."
"The entire Harry Potter series is fantastic!"

Levi's Men's 505 Regular Fit Jean
Beloved for their classic straight leg style, they are cut to sit at the waist, comfortable throughout the seat and thigh and straight down to the ankle. 100% Cotton.
Reviews
"And having 2 pairs of 505s, slightly different in color but consistent in fit, so I can alternate, means they'll still be in good shape longer – like wearing several pairs of shoes, instead of the same pair all the time."
"These seem to find a perch somewhere, and worries about keeping them up versus an uncomfortable, tightly cinched belt is a debate I have now left back in 2016."
"I've worn 505s for a number of years , so I felt pretty confident just clicking and ordering my go-to size. As you can see in my photos, I took one of the pairs of the jeans I ordered and laid it out next to my normal, regular, trusted 505s. Levis apparently decided they'd just tack on an extra six inches of denim for fun."
"I like classic, rugged things that respect a legacy of craftsmanship, rather than dance for the flighty whim of style. Classic blue with yellow stitches looks as good as ever, but be real careful you don't end up with crotch whiskers or whatever they're called. These are earned defects in a good pair of jeans, not borrowed from the labor of another. I'm in my third pair of 505's in as many years, and am here on Amazon reviewing them because this morning, I noticed a hole in the crotch. I wear them to protect everything from my flesh to my sensibilities, and I have to say I'm dismayed that the only way to get a perfectly aged set of denim these days is to buy them that way, for they'll fall apart long before you have a say in it. I like jeans I can pair with cowboy boots, lace ups, oxfords, and sneakers, topped with everything from button-downs to tee shirts, and the 501's and 505's both fit the bill, but it's the subtle misses that bug me. Sometimes I'm even lying down or doing some weird halfsie position, and I don't need my belt digging into my stomach or my shirt coming untucked or the back dipping down to show the world my johnnies. Look, I know the kids like what they like --nifty tears and low rises and fits best for slouching-- and bully for them. Maybe as trends go back to the old school, Levi's will make a jean more fit for me. Update: Unable to find another jean and needing a new pair badly for an upcoming event, I bought my old standby, but got a different color; "Range", whatever that means."
"The denim and construction are as good as ever, the fit is not as comfy but probably acceptable, belt loops also a step in the wrong direction - but inch and a half shorter pockets?"
"Horrible quality, came undone after a month of being received."

Cards Against Humanity
Unlike most of the party games you've played before, Cards Against Humanity is as despicable and awkward as you and your friends. - Mike "Gabe" Krahulik, Penny Arcade "Uncontrollable laughter." Over 150 new cards since the last version.
Reviews
"My Husband and I have played it with our son quite a few times and it made us all sit together and just laugh so hard that we snort and end up having some very interesting conversations. Anything that keeps my teenager talking to me and feeling comfortable speaking with us about odd or uncomfortable things is a win in my parenting handbook."
"There are Black Cards and there are White Cards. Players have 10 White Cards, which they use to complete the Black Card's question(s)/blank(s). After each player (besides The Judge) has chosen the best White Card in their hand to go with the Black Card, all players turn their White Cards in to The Judge. From here, The Judge reviews the White Cards and decides his/her favorite pairing of the White and Black Cards. After everyone has chosen their White Card, the Judge reviews the responses: "Smallpox Blankets", "Drinking Alone", "A Can of Whoop-Ass", and "Take-Backsies". (Before you read these and think I'm an awful person, these are actual White Cards that I have seen played on the aforementioned Black Card). 4."
"This game has got to be the funniest game I've played in awhile..."
"As more of your subconscious fights to unleash the trauma, you'll find yourself uttering "nipple blades" and "mouth herpes" in the most unacceptable of times. They'll bring new friends in to freshen up the game...you will feel a rush as the look of shame crosses their innocent eyes as they win a round by playing "Amputees" against your "White People Like _____". A team of rescue workers will find you you weeks later in your closet, frazzled, emaciated, and stinking from "Soiling Yourself", because you just couldn't stop with playing Cards Against Humanity against yourself. The light of day will strike your eyes and you'll gaze up at your saviors with pensive anticipation... "Wanna play?""

advion Syngenta Cockroach Gel Bait, 1 Box
High-performing bait product targeting all pest species of cockroaches.
Reviews
"Here's a tip: place the product on tape so that it's easier to clean and reapply."
"Prior to trying Advion roach gel I had an exterminator come out to give me a quote on the unit. He said the initial spray treatment would cost $200, and to effectively control the roach problem he would have to come out for monthly follow-up visits. After a couple of rounds of Advion bait treatment, waiting about 3 days between applications, the unit is now ready to rent to a new tenant."
"I just applied this all around my kitchen less than 10 minutes ago, so I can't say whether or not it is effective at eradicating an infestation yet but I will say this: the roaches definitely are attracted to it. I came back in my kitchen to take out some garbage and saw some roaches already busy devouring some of the gel I'd applied just minutes before. UPDATE 8/27: OK, so it's been a month since I first applied this Advion Gel and about 3 weeks since I last saw ANY cockroach activity in my kitchen. The first few days after application were a little frightening as I kept seeing a disturbing number of roaches, almost all dead or dying, in my kitchen but that slowed to a stop by day 4 and I haven't seen ANY signs of cockroach activity after that first week. UPDATE 12/2: It's been months since I applied this stuff around my kitchen and I haven't seen ANY roaches or signs of roach activity AT ALL since the week I first used it. UPDATE 7/3/2016: Final update - It has been almost a whole year since I used this stuff and my kitchen is still completely cockroach free."
"I live in a three unit building and both of my neighbors bug bombed their units when I was out of town for two weeks- so the German roach infestation I came home to was unreal! I started spending a few hours a day at home deep cleaning but I couldn't even stomach the amount of roaches everywhere. I spent so much money on different bait gels, roach traps, sprays, borax, essential oils, and anything else I could find online and the most progress I was able to make was to clear the out of my shop (or at least off of my equipment) for a few hours at a time so I could get some work done, but nothing was working. Eight hours later I went back home and there were dead/dying roaches EVERYWHERE and the bait was gone."

"No leakage unlike what others are claiming, good quality and cheaper than you'd get in an art store."
"so i've tried to buy and use pretty much every major brand of ink pen to see which is the best, and hands down i've never used a pen better than these!"
"I like everything about them but I realize after using the 01 pen for only a few minutes, it always dries up and then would work again after numerous scribbling. The 05 and 08 pens are fine and come out really bold and nice, but the ink does take a while to dry."
"I color mandalas, and these are essential for doing such intricate work."
"The ink is true to the color on the pen, and flows smoothly onto the paper."

Our extra light and light bands are great for beginners, while our medium, heavy and extra heavy exercise bands are targeted for more intermediate and advanced strength training.

Reviews
"As long as I'm walking, running errands, working, moving around I'm getting the benefits of the resistance bands. I use the when doing any exercises that lift my rear end... (Whatever...don't judge me lol!). While shopping this fitness trainer stopped me and said that I was doing a good thing."
"I've been taking my bands to the gym cuz there's never enough to go around and I just wrap it around my wrist or stick in my pocket bcuz it folds really flat."
"My favorite part is that they have "Light" "Medium" etc printed on the band so I don't have to guess or refer to a chart every time I want to grab my Medium weight band."
"Pros - easy to travel with, came in great condition and proper packaging, bands are labeled by color/resistant to make sure you know the difference."
"Even after prolonged rigorous workout sessions, I have noticed absolutely no wear or tear whatsoever! I recommend starting out with a lower resistance band and then when it becomes too easy for you move on to the next! The DVD isn’t necessary as the product comes with a user manual that contains several workouts for each part of the body."
"Con: my son and husband think they are rubber band toys so fling back and forth but I also guess you can take that as them being durable (so far)."
"Today’s workout took 15 extra minutes due to all the adjustments."
"The only one that hasn't popped was the black one."

Hamilton Original Broadway Cast Recording Explicit Lyrics
"Hamilton" - which transferred to Broadway following a sold-out run at The Public Theater in NYC - is the acclaimed new musical about the scrappy young immigrant Alexander Hamilton, the $10 Founding Father who forever changed America with his revolutionary ideas and actions.
Reviews
"Then avoid this album at ALL COSTS. Soon your family will start experimenting with this album and know Aaron Burr and Alexander Hamilton are more than just a trivia question from the Got Milk commercial from 1993. I'll leave it at this: I enjoyed this album enough to: -sing along with it. -move along with it. -make plans to fly out to Broadway to watch and support this show. -most importantly: find out more about Alexander Hamilton beyond the 1993 Got Milk commercial. I hope you enjoy this album as much as I have."
"This excellent cast album has it all: songs about desire, triumph, love, heartbreak, power, obsession, family, cheating, status, happiness and loss. After an eight year absence from visiting NYC, Hamilton has inspired me to book a plane ticket and a ridiculously expensive hotel room in the Big Apple just to see this show in the Fall."
"It's a brilliant pastiche of musical and poetic styles, all perfectly tailored to each particular character, yet woven into an intricate narrative that will inspire, entertain, and break your heart. I was privileged to see the show the week that it opened, and can't stop telling people about it, so I was beyond thrilled that the production team, including writer/performer Lin-Manuel Miranda and producer Ahmir Khalib Thompson (aka Questlove) chose to produce a full-length soundtrack that skipped nothing from the original show. Now an entire generation of theater-goers will arrive at Hamilton already knowing the music and words, and that's probably a great thing, because it's incredibly complex and fast-paced."
"I've been immersed in American musical theater my entire life and work in it full-time now."
"Totally met all my expectations. Took the advice from friends to do your research."

Duo, the number 1 selling multi-cooker, combines 7 kitchen appliances in 1, Pressure Cooker, Slow Cooker, Rice Cooker, Steamer, Sauté, Yogurt Marker and Warmer, prepares dishes up to 70% faster to support your busy lifestyle.
Reviews
"You can cook multiple items in it ( which you can also do in a regular stove top pressure cooker by stacking vessels- my mom used to do it all the time , so when ppl say you can cook multiple items in the IP as if it is a new thing - no it is just "re-inventing the Cycle". It cooks rice in less than 4 minutes( sometimes even in less amount of time) - yes it does but BUILDING UP THE PRESSURE takes some time around 8 to 10 minutes( sometimes even more than that for very big quantities of food). So total time is almost same(give or take) when compared to stove top pressure cooker. For stove top pressure cooking , you need to monitor continuosly for whistles, and turning off the stove - This you can avoid in Instant pot. Since it is electric pressure cooker with built in settings, it will automatically turn off the cooking for you , so you dont have to stand near by the. stove all the time. So many BUILT IN functions : There are so many functions you can use for multiple cooking , some of them are Yogurt mode to make yogurt , Rice mode for rice, Slow cook mode etc. Great for people who want to experiment in their cooking to find out the fastest times for. their cooking , which saves lot of time than to use preset functions. ONE POT COOKING ( multiple , if cooking multiple dishes by stacking) so less clean up. and so many more... SO PEOPLE who are looking for stainless steel cooking pot, cooking multiple items at once, dont want to stand in front of the stove baby sitting , busy parents, who wants fresh homemade food with less efforts, One pot cooking, Bulk cooking .... etc etc ... YOU MUST BUY THIS. It happens to everyone .. it takes time and some trial and error to get the exact recipe timings to your taste and texture. I do like to cook 2 things at a time and never tried 3 at a time as I am little afraid that some how they might get spilled while boiling and cooking. 3. Saves time, one pot to clean , so my cooking time on stove is greatly reduced."
"The pot visually lets you know when it's safe to open the pot, by the float valve (the little silver post that pops up when the pot is pressurized) dropping back down flush with the lid instead of being popped up. The sauté function has three temperature settings: 'Normal' heats to 320 degrees, 'More' heats to 338 degrees, and 'Less' heats to 221 degrees (all in Fahrenheit). For pressure cooking, you will probably use 'manual' nearly all the time (nearly every Instant Pot cookbook I've read relies on the manual setting almost exclusively). The preprogrammed settings each have their own timing, and *variable* pressure, which the pot manipulates by manipulating the temperature of the contents (the higher the temperature, the higher the pressure). After you hit 'manual' to start cooking, you then set the amount of time you want it to cook at pressure, after which you will have a 10-second grace period (for example to add more time, etc. So you need to take into account the time it will take to reach full pressure (which depends on many variables, including what is in the contents of the pot, what temperature they started at, and your altitude), *and* how long it will take for the pressure to be released and normalized (i.e. for the float valve to pop in, which of course is really "dropping in", but you get the point). All Instant Pot recipes will include (or *should* include) either one of these terms: natural pressure release (also known as NPR), or quick pressure release (QPR or QR). What these mean is simply either "let the pressure dissipate on its own" (natural pressure release), or "force the pressure to escape immediately by turning the steam release handle counter-clockwise to the open position (quick release). A really good example of a food needing quick release is poached eggs (which come out *perfectly* in the Instant Pot (see how to poach eggs in the Instant Pot below)). For example, for any recipe that includes sautéing in the pot first, then adding ingredients and then starting pressure cooking, you definitely want to have everything lined up before you start. I didn't fully appreciate, until several days in, just how amazing this aspect of the Instant Pot is: you can start something cooking in it, and then *walk away* - even leave the house, and it will finish cooking just like you instructed, and be *perfectly done*, and then it will *keep it warm for up to 10 hours*! (I think this is the thing that pressure cooker purists who try to talk people out of getting an Instant Pot, rather than a stovetop pressure cooker, fail to understand. You definitely will want this steamer basket for your Instant Pot (the Instant Pot comes with a little steaming trivet, but this steamer basket is *way* more useful - in fact it's how you make both poached eggs and baked potatoes). There are different reasons for doing this, ranging from "I only want to cook a small amount of something like oatmeal" to "I want to cook a cheesecake in my Instant Pot" to "I want to cook two different things at the same time in my Instant Pot (like cooking beans, and having a bowl of rice on a trivet (see why you want a good trivet?). Personally, I like to have a physical book when it comes to cookbooks, and so I like this one...you can't go wrong with America's Test Kitchen cookbooks, and their pressure cooker cookbook is no exception: Pressure Cooker Perfection. I also happen to be a strict vegetarian, and for vegetarian and vegan Instant Pot cooking, this book by J.L. Instant Pot Meals, Plant-Based & Oil-free. ..and this one: Vegan Under Pressure: Perfect Vegan Meals Made Quick and Easy in Your Pressure Cooker. And speaking of recipes - here is how to make those poached eggs, and baked potatoes. Put a cup of water in the bottom of your Instant Pot, put a steamer basket or trivet in the pot (making sure that the water doesn't come over the top), and set your Pyrex cups in the steamer basket or on the trivet. Just put water in the bottom of your Instant Pot, flip the legs down on your Oxo steamer, put the steamer in the pot and then dump your potatoes in on top of the steamer. Using the Manual setting, set the cooking time for 12 minutes, using high pressure."

"and when in Survival you can go mining for gold, diamonds, iron, coal, emeralds, redstone, and lapis lazuli, or you could make a hoe and farm wheat, sugarcane, beets, potatoes, carrots, pumpkins, and melons.

No scary sounds, severed body parts, or anything like that. My 4 year old brother plays this by my mom's approval and he would say the same.

It is an 8 inch HD display, it has a quad core processor, 1.3 gigahertz. You can enjoy hundreds of movies, TV shows, songs, Kindle ebooks you can even have a text- to-speech narrator, who will read the book to you! It seems to have brought us into a different venue. The case that comes with your Kindle Fire is just the back side of the case it does not cover the front."
"All right so I was scrolling through the reviews and read some pretty ridiculous reasons to not give this tablet five stars. For 80 dollars this is a good buy and the complaints on the wieght and the ads are ridiculous reasons to give this tablet a shabby review. Buy this tablet if you want a cheap e-reader that can also sure the web, watch movies and shows, check Facebook or Twitter, or read books on. It is an 80 dollar tablet and it will freeze if you try and treat it like something that has an insanely powerful processor and RAM."
"I paid full price for this product and am not being compensated in any manner to post this review. Pro's: ~Fast. ~Amazing Screen resolution. ~Great sound. ~Responsive. ~Alexa is kind of awesome. ~Battery life.

Reviews
"You can cook multiple items in it ( which you can also do in a regular stove top pressure cooker by stacking vessels- my mom used to do it all the time , so when ppl say you can cook multiple items in the IP as if it is a new thing - no it is just "re-inventing the Cycle". It cooks rice in less than 4 minutes( sometimes even in less amount of time) - yes it does but BUILDING UP THE PRESSURE takes some time around 8 to 10 minutes( sometimes even more than that for very big quantities of food). So total time is almost same(give or take) when compared to stove top pressure cooker. For stove top pressure cooking , you need to monitor continuosly for whistles, and turning off the stove - This you can avoid in Instant pot. Since it is electric pressure cooker with built in settings, it will automatically turn off the cooking for you , so you dont have to stand near by the. stove all the time. So many BUILT IN functions : There are so many functions you can use for multiple cooking , some of them are Yogurt mode to make yogurt , Rice mode for rice, Slow cook mode etc. Great for people who want to experiment in their cooking to find out the fastest times for. their cooking , which saves lot of time than to use preset functions. ONE POT COOKING ( multiple , if cooking multiple dishes by stacking) so less clean up. and so many more... SO PEOPLE who are looking for stainless steel cooking pot, cooking multiple items at once, dont want to stand in front of the stove baby sitting , busy parents, who wants fresh homemade food with less efforts, One pot cooking, Bulk cooking .... etc etc ... YOU MUST BUY THIS. It happens to everyone .. it takes time and some trial and error to get the exact recipe timings to your taste and texture. I do like to cook 2 things at a time and never tried 3 at a time as I am little afraid that some how they might get spilled while boiling and cooking. 3. Saves time, one pot to clean , so my cooking time on stove is greatly reduced."
"The pot visually lets you know when it's safe to open the pot, by the float valve (the little silver post that pops up when the pot is pressurized) dropping back down flush with the lid instead of being popped up. The sauté function has three temperature settings: 'Normal' heats to 320 degrees, 'More' heats to 338 degrees, and 'Less' heats to 221 degrees (all in Fahrenheit). For pressure cooking, you will probably use 'manual' nearly all the time (nearly every Instant Pot cookbook I've read relies on the manual setting almost exclusively). The preprogrammed settings each have their own timing, and *variable* pressure, which the pot manipulates by manipulating the temperature of the contents (the higher the temperature, the higher the pressure). After you hit 'manual' to start cooking, you then set the amount of time you want it to cook at pressure, after which you will have a 10-second grace period (for example to add more time, etc. So you need to take into account the time it will take to reach full pressure (which depends on many variables, including what is in the contents of the pot, what temperature they started at, and your altitude), *and* how long it will take for the pressure to be released and normalized (i.e. for the float valve to pop in, which of course is really "dropping in", but you get the point). All Instant Pot recipes will include (or *should* include) either one of these terms: natural pressure release (also known as NPR), or quick pressure release (QPR or QR). What these mean is simply either "let the pressure dissipate on its own" (natural pressure release), or "force the pressure to escape immediately by turning the steam release handle counter-clockwise to the open position (quick release).

"Rocky Road/ Extreme milk chocolate/ Chocolate/ Double rich are all just chocolate variants, so start off buying a small container until you find the one you like the most! I bring a bag full of ON gold standard whey with me to the gym so when im finished my workout, I can immediately get a hit of protein to begin the process of muscle building as soon as possible!"
"The taste could be a little better, I did not mind it as I'm used to Whey, but my wife absolutely thought it was terrible."
"I use the same shake recipe, Almond milk, PB powder, coconut flavor and 10 raw almonds and VOILA!!! You can add some chia seeds of flax seeds to get you a more fullness effect."
"Why change a great thing. This one star review is for the new formula Optimum Nutrition is using."
"I am dissapointed that Optimum Nutrition changed their original product (which was the best you could find) to a new formula that's full of sweeteners and lacking the Aminogen™ ingredient that was listed as an ingredient."
"Vanilla Ice Cream. Please listen, ❗️DO NOT BUY IT❗️I have in the past spoken and reviewed this product as the best among the lot but that was before Optimum Nutrition changed the ingredients. I make sure to add raw old fashioned oats and increase the water to numb the sweetness but to no avail. Besides the bad taste, there's a divided opinion in the scientific world about the detrimental health effects of Sucralose."

"These are so nice to have have on hand - - I don’t like grocery shopping in the first place, hate the long drive, the parking lot parking madness and hazardous parking lot walking. I don’t like lugging these heavy items into and out of my shopping cart back out on to the check-out thing, into my car, out of my car, in to the house etc etc etc."
"I want to review this product specifically for cloth diaper users and I hope it is helpful for them. I started cloth diapering my baby from 3 weeks old, and for the first couple of months, I used a natural detergent (Method specifically) and I thought it worked fine."
"I like this brand of Tide (especially because we need HE for our washer) but sometimes if we use too much the smell of the Tide is overwhelming (not a bad problem but for some people it may be bothersome)."
"You know a laundry detergent is awesome when your husband comments on how good his clothes smell and you overhear your daughter's teenage friends saying how much they love the smell of your laundry room!"
"I appreciate the competitive price but I mostly love the size, not so heavy that I can't pull it off the shelf and great size to store in the small laundry room that we have."
"If I stray away, I’ll be returning to Tide Free with my first allergy challenges."
"But I started noticing everyday normal wear and tear stains were not coming out."

Reviews
"Of the two screen protectors, one came from a crack (probably occurred during packaging or shipping). I was going to return the product after I saw one of the protectors had a crack in it, but decided out of necessity to use the other screen protector for my phone. From the looks of it, the protector is like a firm plexiglass; I applied some pressure (after seeing the crack) to see how it would bend, since I've seen other reviews of other screen protectors being entirely flexible. My product came in a bubble envelope with a hole, so maybe the reason why the protector came cracked was because of that, who knows? The phone is responsive to the touch, and works fine with the screen protector. Only the glass screen protector cracked a bit in the corner (WILL INSERT PHOTOS WHEN I GET TO BF'S HOUSE), but other than that, my screen is completely fine."
"This pack comes with two protectors and applying materials and nice small cloth to wipe out the dirt."
"But i got my iPhone replaced last week from apple and used the spare protector but i think maybe i did something wrong and protector had lot of bubbles and started coming off on edges and i thought of contacting Techmatte and i am glad i emailed them and reply was prompt and explained them everything and company took my mailing address and sent me a replacement screen protector within 2 weeks."
"The screen protectors come inside a foam pouch and have a protective film layer on one side (phone facing) and a plastic protective layer with tabs (for aligning) on the other. The company specifically makes it clear that the screen protectors are a little smaller because of the curved edges of the phone and to avoid lifted edges."
"I applied the screen protector onto my iPhone 7 back in September of 2017 and just had to replace the screen protector with a new one and it’s February of 2018. I though for sure the screen would be shattered, but only the screen protector was cracked!"

Reviews
"Update as of 090415. Have tried using it with Apple cider vinegar but sadly, it still doesn't seem to be clearing my face like all other reviewers. I was hoping this to help clear them up but it seems to be doing nothing at all."
"This product ruined my skin. I started using this so late after buying it because I felt three or four small, hard lumps underneath my skin on my cheek: that's how my bad pimples usually start, gathering forces under my skin and then unleashing their cultivated devastation on the surface: my skin. I would wash my face with an oil cleanser before I started, something that was part of my regular routine that had always kept my skin healthy. I have pimples in clusters on my cheeks, my temples, my jawline, pimples that have not come to a head despite this clay's claim of bringing all the gunk to the surface. I have been positive until now, believing that it was the dark before the dawn, brushing off the pimples' existence and imagining my miraculous recovery when the purging period ended and all of my pimples went away, but my skin is getting worse and the first pimples that are fading with time leave brown blemishes. I have no 'Before' pictures because my skin had one or two pimples, nothing more. My pimples, aside from being large and juicy, red and inflamed, have now also begun to flake off bits of skin. Please don't think this product is a malicious one guaranteed to destroy your skin, but if it only worsens your skin even after several weeks, past the acceptable purging period time, then be wary of it. Please, if any of you have suggestions for fixing my skin, tell me, but I will never use this product again."
"After reading the amazing reviews for this product, I thought I should give it a go. I love a good face mask & for this cheap.. who could resist!? Although after my second use I woke up the next morning with some small clusters of breakouts across my forehead... I applied my regular acne cream to the mini pimples & went on with me day. I know we're all not English scholars but I would expect a product to at least have correct spelling! It's embarrassing to go out into public with tons of scabby pimples all over my face.... anyway.... please be careful when using this product!"
"It's like this mask made my skin go back to what it was. Anyways this mask is super drying and like I said it made my acne worse."

"I'm here to point out the fact that Bounty sells paper towels in the following marketing nonsense sizes: Regular, Large, Big, Giant, Mega, Super, Double, and Huge."
"and if you look at the reviews over the years, you see that Bounty has continued to shring "Huge.""

"I was tired of changing the roll every other day with the big rolls of Viva that I was purchasing for the past few years."
"WARNING - The new size of Bounty S&S is still listed as 2 huge rolls = 5 regular rolls, but the new rolls are only 142 sf instead of 160, which is a 12% reduction in value for you as the consumer."
"As other's have expressed, Bounty tries to profit from deliberately obfuscating/bloating the numbers that a discerning consumer would need for comparison shopping and assessing value."

"I just opened this one yesterday, since the one I bought from local store (same brand same flavor) is out. So I had less than half a cup, so I opened the bag and check it out. Why a supposedly same food looks so different, I ask myself. But Spooky is hungry, so I put some of the food to have a half a cup of food for Spooky. Today, he was hungry and wanted to have breakfast, and for some reason he wouldn't eat the food.

"There is a reason these Howard Leight Impact Sport muffs are probably the most popular model of their type on the market -- they're dirt cheap and work very well. We're also big into the night vision world, so I was pleasantly surprised when the Team Wendy ComTac headset adapters worked with these muffs almost PERFECTLY (see photos I've attached to this review). They Howard Leights -- in our extensive experience -- are: MORE durable, MORE comfortable, have MUCH better battery installation, LOOK better, FEEL like they're higher quality, PERFORM better, and now that we've discovered they can use the Peltor helmet mount adapters, there is simply NO reason to ever get another set of the cheap Peltors."

Wonder
Over 6 million people have read the #1 New York Times bestseller WONDER and have fallen in love with Auggie Pullman, an ordinary boy with an extraordinary face. "Wonder is the best kids' book of the year," said Emily Bazelon, senior editor at Slate.com and author of Sticks and Stones: Defeating the Culture of Bullying and Rediscovering the Power of Character and Empathy . More than that, Wonder touches the heart in the most life-affirming, unexpected ways, delivering in August Pullman a character whom readers will remember forever. Entertainment Weekly: "In a wonder of a debut, Palacio has written a crackling page-turner filled with characters you can't help but root for." The New York Times: "Rich and memorable...It's Auggie and the rest of the children who are the real heart of 'Wonder,' and Palacio captures the voices of girls and boys, fifth graders and teenagers, with equal skill." The Wall Street Journal : "What makes R.J. Palacio's debut novel so remarkable, and so lovely, is the uncommon generosity with which she tells Auggie's story…The result is a beautiful, funny and sometimes sob-making story of quiet transformation.”. - Patricia Reilly Giff , two-time Newbery honor-winning author of Lily's Crossing and Pictures of Hollis Woods. Starred Review, Publishers Weekly : “Few first novels pack more of a punch: it's a rare story with the power to open eyes--and hearts--to what it's like to be singled out for a difference you can't control, when all you want is to be just another face in the crowd.” Starred Review, Booklist : “Palacio makes it feel not only effortless but downright graceful, and by the stand-up-and-cheer conclusion, readers will be doing just that, and feeling as if they are part of this troubled but ultimately warm-hearted community.”. Starred Review, School Library Journal : "Palacio has an exceptional knack for writing realistic conversation and describing the thoughts and emotions of the characters...A well-written, thought-provoking book. ".
Reviews
"I'm a 54 year old grandfather who served in the Marine Corps (just for a little context). Palacio...I can't believe how she so accurately and consistently pegs human nature."
"The most emotional moment for me came toward the end of the book when Auggie's father tells him that he loves the way Auggie looks, because that it exactly how my husband and I feel about our son."
"Author R.J. Palacio writes the book in multiple voices -- Auggie's, some of his friends', his sister's -- and the different points of view are mostly very well-realized and show the inner feelings of the different characters."
"There are so many things we forget that are important and R.J.Palacio gently reminds us as we learn from Angie, his hard-won friends, and his spectacular family."
"I rarely see a movie after I've read the book because the movie is not usually as good."

"We have been using the Infant Optics DXR-8 video monitor for 1 year now and felt we could now give an accurate review. If you're in a hurry, the summary of this review is that this camera and monitor are great and the customer service provided by the company is outstanding (see below). So stop hunting and trying to weigh all the baby camera/monitor reviews and get this camera and monitor if it provides you with all the features you want. We also felt we didn't want a system that sent our image feed off to some remote server where it would be stored for some period of time for whatever analytics that the company performed. We wrote an email to Infant Optics explaining the situation and hoping for a repair or replacement. This is the type of costumer service that actually makes you happy and reaffirms that the Infant Optics camera and monitor was the right choice for our family. It works great and it is backed up by outstanding customer service that provides peace of mind all new parents should be afforded."
"The mommy-to-be and I wanted to test both of these units side-by-side to see how they compared to each other. Samsung initially seemed like the better choice as it had the 5” screen compared to the DXR-8’s screen of only 3.5” The Samsung also had music playback on the camera in the baby’s room (4 different lullaby song choices), and a small night light on the top of the camera (which you can turn on and off). The Samsung’s touch screen is far different than the touch screen on their cell phones, their touch screen has little sensors throughout that you can see if you look at it closely."

That's Christmas To Me
Reviews
"I could get all excited about Kirstie and Avi nailing their leads ("Sleigh Ride" and "It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year" respectively) AND the fact that Kevin gets to sing several lines in "Mary..." I could rave over their original song "That's Christmas to Me" which is both beautiful and moving. But I won't......because that would take too much time that I could spend listening to this incredible album."
"I love Pentatonix so it was natural that I had to have "That's Christmas to Me"."
"I threw my nearly 16 year old golden retriever an early Christmas since cancer was taking her life."
"We drive many miles over the Christmas holidays and most often listen to Christmas CD's as we drive."
"My daughter, a dance teacher, told us about Pentatonix."
"I want to listen to Christmas music year round thanks to this awesome band!"
"I purchased and shipped it to 4 of my friends/family AND gave it as a white elephant gift last year for Christmas."
"I Love acapella."

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone
Then, on Harry's eleventh birthday, a great beetle-eyed giant of a man called Rubeus Hagrid bursts in with some astonishing news: Harry Potter is a wizard, and he has a place at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. He is left only with a lightning-bolt scar on his forehead, curiously refined sensibilities, and a host of mysterious powers to remind him that he's quite, yes, altogether different from his aunt, uncle, and spoiled, piglike cousin Dudley. Of course, Uncle Vernon yells most unpleasantly, "I AM NOT PAYING FOR SOME CRACKPOT OLD FOOL TO TEACH HIM MAGIC TRICKS!" So far it has won the National Book Award, the Smarties Prize, the Children's Book Award, and is short-listed for the Carnegie Medal, the U.K. version of the Newbery Medal. After 11 years of disregard and neglect at the hands of his aunt, uncle and their swinish son Dudley, Harry suddenly receives a visit from a giant named Hagrid, who informs Harry that his mother and father were a witch and a wizard, and that he is to attend Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry himself.
Reviews
"SPECIAL NOTE: For U.S. customers purchasing the illustrated edition of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, you will notice the text has NOT been converted to the "Americanized" version of the original U.S. releases (with the exception of changing all "Philosopher's Stone" mentions to "Sorcerer's Stone"). Good or bad is naturally for each reader to decide--just know, if you plan to read the books while listening to Jim Dale's audiobooks, you'll notice a few superficial differences. The quality of this new illustrated edition is phenomenal. All chapter intros are illustrated."
"IMPORTANT: For U.S. customers purchasing the illustrated edition of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, you will notice the text has NOT been converted to the "Americanized" version of the original U.S. releases. This difference isn't as prominent or noticeable as it was with Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's/Philosopher's Stone, but still something to keep in mind. Also, to answer a question that has come up quite a bit, this is the FULL BOOK and not an abridged or shortened version. Underneath the book jacket, the novel is bound in a sturdy orange hardback with green lettering on the spine."
"I was ravenous to get my hands on my copy as soon as it was delivered this morning, but was quickly disappointed. But when I took a close look at my dust jacket, I was extremely upset to find that the gold foil lettering for "Harry Potter" had been rubbed away and destroyed completely in some places leaving ugly, black matte in its place-- pock marking the otherwise handsome gold lettering. Needless to say I'm in awe how Bloomsbury has managed to put together such an incredible project, with JK Rowling's remarkable literature and Jim Kay's otherworldly illustrations-- and allowed it to be put together in a low quality binding! Not all alone in a box... Update (October 9th): I have finally received my new book and it was in much, much better condition. The cover and spine were tight, intact and falling apart from the binding like my original copy."

"The paper feeds thru Laser Printers as well as Inject printers, either standing vertical feed or laying flat feed printers."
"I have always liked the 5-ream pack-see GP Copy & Print Paper, 8.5 x 11 Inches Letter Size, 92 Bright White, 20 Lb, 5 Reams/Carton (2500 Sheets). I am extremely satisfied with this paper, the size of the box, the convenience, the packing (if you buy more than one box), basically everything! And, in all this time I have not had a "beat-up" box of paper delivered. Update: 8/27/2014 -- I have tried other deals on the 10-Ream Cartons GP Spectrum Premium Multi Use Paper, 8.5 x 11 Inches Letter Size, 92 Bright White, 10 Reams/Carton (5000 Sheets) that occasionally appear, but each time the office staff has asked that we go back to using this economical, very convenient and easy to handle 3-Ream Pack. Update: 2/18/2015 -- I tried GP Spectrum® 96 Multipurpose Paper at a good price."
"However, think hard about getting 24-pound paper as opposed to the more normal and cheaper 20-pound paper."
"I have purchased this paper twice; the first shipment was fully intact."
"It’s paper."
"This is one of the best copy paper for my needs."
"Well, the paper is good."
"This brand is okay to use."
