Thumbs up What products do you own/owned that you highly suggest to others?

In honor of the Dyson vacuum cleaner thread that was ridiculously popular and for many informative if not motivating, I thought why not start a thread for folks to suggest products and gear that they are absolutely in love with and have founf to work at or above their expectations.

Basically a thread for product referrals.
To keep it simple lets follow the following format:

Product Mfr./Name: Dyson
What is it/does it do: Upright vacuum cleaner that kicks arse royale
Model I own/suggest: Any model, they are all the same base unit with varying attachments
Street price: >$599 depending on the version you get
Mfr./Vendor website: www.Dyson.com
Owner/user feedback: This thing owns, period. It works exactly as advertised and it sucks up every bit of of dirt or dust both visible and invisible. Own it or be own3d.

So there it is, sweet & simple.
Pass it on...

Product Mfr./Name: Honda Pilot
What is it/does it do: 8 person SUV with full time AWD
Model I own/suggest: Any model though I have an EX-L with DVD
Street price: You'll be lucky to find one in my zone at straight retail which is $32K well equipped
Mfr./Vendor website: http://www.hondacars.com/models/mode...odelName=Pilot
Owner/user feedback: Out of all the cars, wagons and vehicles we've owned this is the only one other than my Legacy which Mrs. Janq and I both are totally enthusaistic for. It handles very well and more like a car than any truck. Its very roomy inside and swallows 5 tall people (over 6') with ease and will take 8 via a fold down third row. It gets good gas mileage and it moves out like an SUV shouldn't while looking relatively low key so as not to attract the cops. Oh and it has the highest crashworthiness rating of anything on the road, period. The uber family hauler for middle class folks with Heineken tastes on Budweiser budgets at a Yuengling price.

Hella supertones (car horns)- it works wonders and it has actually saved me from accidents before.

Price: about $45 new off eBay

eg. Yesterday I was @ target and some old fart (70'sh) is about 5 ft from plowing into my right passenger door going about 10 mph. I mashed the horns and he slammed his brakes and gave me the "opps, my bad look"

hehe

Product Name: Miracle Blade Professional Series
What is it/does it do: Cuts the **** out of pretty much anything
Model I own/suggest: Professional Series (Purchased 2002)
Street price: About $100 CND (Including all knives, wooden block and shipping)
Mfr./Vendor website: www.miracleblade.com/
Owner/user feedback: These knives are seriously the ****. A friend and I bough them one night after coming home from the bar absolutly tanked and seeing them on tv. Oh how I wish I could have recorded the drunk ass conversation we had with the sales girl. These knives will do all the **** they show on tv and mine haven't gone dull. The only people I would not recommend them for is real chefs, cause they are too stuck up to use these knives.

Good info ^^

Deals are now available if you look and shop.
I got mine for $369 from BestBuy.
I'm quoting the MSRP rate though as deals aren't always available and everywhere.
If you find it for less then thats icing on the cake.

Meh,

I wore a set of those out in less than a year.
Tough to sharpen as well.(wannabe serrations on the sides, looks like a regular blade,except it has serrations on it, *** is up with that)
The sizes are all wrong, the chopper is too stubby and way to tall, and the chef's knof?? Please. The Cleaver was a joke. The only good thing it that entire kit was the scissors.

<----Buys new knife sets yearly.



Somebody want to loan me $1600????

I only have one ass and two feets.
Right now I have two Subies on roster and at one time had three of varying ages.

None the less I keep coming back to the same store asking for more as the years and decades roll on by.
In a 13 yr. time span to keep spending money with the same maker is saying something.
I've bought/leased all kinds of other stuff to in that time but none other than the Pilot have lived up to Subaru.

Subies rule

- Janq

P.S. The only Subaru Mrs. Janq and I both thought was sub-par in quality was my '93 SVX LSi. A fun car and great fun to drive but it had problems that were not just unique to my specific car. Even still I loved that car.

No need to sharpen, just return them and they give you a new set. (I have done this with a bread knife... cut too many broomhandles). I found them to work well, the rock and chop does have limited use, but is good at what it does, and the "cleaver" is not really a cleaver... "chop and scoop" man, chop and scoop!

To each his own, I think these are wicked knives for the price you pay. Try buying a new (full) set of cutco knives and see how much they run.... $$$

My father in law has that full set in the 'Classic' style/version.
I'd helped him research a replacement set a few years back.

Excellent tools they are and a must have if you take your cooking seriously, as he does.

Nice

Product Mfr./Name: Rain-X
What is it/does it do: Keeps your glass clean, and easier to maintain. No need for wipers, Haven't used a wiper in all my days driving. Oh yeah, you can drive fast too.
Model I own/suggest: Liquid Form. Wax type/anit-fog sucks
Street price: ~3$
Mfr./Vendor website: www.rain-x.com
Owner/user feedback: It's unpossible. Unreal. Works better than wipers, or a rain-x wiper combo. I've tried Aqua-pel and it sucks. I swear it thwarts rock chips as well. In winter weather, it really shines.
