Albrillo G4 LED Dimmable Bulb

Had a few G4 halogen bulbs burn out on our house Possini chandelier and wanted to try out some G4 LED replacement bulbs. These Abbrillo G4 LED Dimmable Bulbs did exactly what I needed. The bulbs are labeled warm white and are a nice white color. Not yellow like a typical halogen bulb, but not that hideous white like a hospital. I have them on a Lutron Maestro Dimmer switch and they work fine. The lowest setting has slight light output. The second lowest setting has a tiny hint of flicker. Every setting above has no… Continue reading…

Ecofresca EFW-DA2903 for Samsung Refrigerator Water Filter

Amazon no longer carries the replacement water filter for my Samsung-RSG257AARS counter depth side by side refrigerator. What are we to do if we didn’t stock up on OEM Samsung Water Filters?

Cerama Bryte Cooktop Cleaner Combo

I was preparing our Samsung stove nicely for this test. Ever since we got the stove, the black top is very hard to clean. I have never been able to get all of the grease off. I had enough of that and decided to see if Samsung recommended anything to clean the cooktop. Samsung recommends using Cerama Bryte Cooktop Cleaner. In preparation I used our cast iron skillet to make bacon every morning until the Cerama Bryte Cooktop Cleaner arrived from Amazon, and made a big mess every time. Also let some Korean BBQ make… Continue reading…

Best Steak Knife Set Victorinox

We have been in need of a steak knife set. After reading many reviews I kept seeing the Victorinox 4-3/4-Inch Straight-Edge Pointed-Tip Steak Knife, Set of 6, Rosewood Handles mentioned over and over as great steak knives. First the knives are not serrated. A serrated knife will not sharpen so that’s a no go since we are going to be cutting lots of steak!! Second this set of knives is reasonably priced. We were willing to go cheap, but another brand that was mentioned looked a bit on the cheesey side. They only come in a… Continue reading…
