Sooo comfortable, solid and great for reading (and napping). Dreamed of having one all my life. Saarinen got it right. It's pretty much all I'd need at home, I think.

Very cool giveaway. Worth it for the doughhook alone, but also for all the baking I don't do now (disability).

This is one cheerful piece of equipment with a long lifespan and lots of potential. I remember my mother's stand mixer fondly. We used it so often.

This series of mattress reviews is really fascinating and helpful. Too few people really spend time thinking about this purchase, perhaps one of the most important anyone makes. Thanks for doing this, AT. I read all of them.

Don't use toothpaste to fill holes, not just because it is a college trick or because fools the eye, but because it is deceptive if not actionable and unethical. Talk about bad rental karma.

I'm with Patrick (the other one) about lack of fanfare for this cool event. I wait for it. Last year's was wonderful. All will win in some way. Grateful Maxwell, Eddie and Eileen are making the effort--this is a lot of work in a short span, especially for people who run other businesses.

this faucet looks like it uses space well, might be easy on arthritic hands, too. Christmas present for mother or grandmother? Or, better yet, in my sad little needs-an-apt-therapy-makeover kitchen.

i have to work from home due to illness and could really, really use this thing in my "home office" (uh, closet). if you make a lot of labels or mail stuff, you really know why this gadget is useful.

kamijeanne, is there a Whole Foods near you? That and our local organic food coop sell Ecover. Wonder if Costco or those type of stores carry Ecover.

This stuff works for me. Once you go "green" with this stuff, you just never want to use petrochemical harsh stuff again. There isn't a lot of odour. Gentle on hands. I recommend it. And need some.

Have seen these in action. Soft glow, safe, ever-ready. If you have animals, as I do, these give quite a bit of peace of mind. Wagging tails and curious noses can knock over candles to disastrous result. I love candles, but for some purposes, these Candela lights are THE solution.

I want some!

p.s. environmentally, the vitamix makes up for its electricity use in meals delivered without heat. It's an amazing machine. Would love to have one.

This item is out of reach ($) for so many who want to start a raw diet, or who want to try some raw or vegan in their diet. It's the best, no doubt. I tried a kale/mint/pear smoothie a friend made in her Vitamix. Excellent, and my own blender could never do the job. Raw Boutenkos recommend only Vitamix, I think.

Water filtration is not a luxury anymore. If you are a guardian of parrots, finches or other small birds, tap water from city systems is often harmful to them. Our vet warned us to filter water. If you know someone with chronic illness, this would make a great present.

p.s. I live in a smaller space than any apartment I've seen on this site, except maybe two. Organization is pretty much essential to health, mental health and, well, everything in such small spaces. Leave space to breathe--Diana Vreeland said, "Elegance is refusal." Refuse too much stuff, put what you have on a shelf, and make breathing space. That's true luxury to me.
