But why would you want a clean and shiny barbecue grate?! You're scraping off all the flavor! :-P

Wow. We have one of these two and I wish my experience with it had been as simple and rewarding! Of course, here in Texas, it's hotter than Hades during the summer, so any outdoor activity is ill advised!

Our yard is very small but quite hilly. I think it would be much easier on a flatter lawn. I also agree that it doesn't cut very neatly and gets stuck on the smallest twigs. Also, if you have runner type grass, like St. Augustine, it gets stuck on the runners. It's doable but I think we're going to go for an electric, until we're able to rip out the grass completely!

On the plus side, you can feel like the suburban badass while your wussy neighbors ride around on their tractorbeasts!

I just love the way the colors flow together. Very sophisticated. Could you elaborate more on them? Do you have the names? Are they custom variations or colors that are current Benjamin Moore? Just beautiful...thanks for sharing!

Laura,

That's the same issue in my neighborhood. I got one of these...

The idea is that it transfer the pressure of someone kicking the door to the floor and wedges it closed.

Not terrible attractive but I only put it up while I'm out of the house and when I'm sleeping. Steel doors are way expensive and, I may be wrong, but I think they can still be kicked in? I believe the frame is still just wood and that's what usually gives when the door is kicked in. It rips right out of the frame...

I believe those, like the Mr. Clean Magic Eraser, are made of melamine. They're supposed to be non-toxic and environmentally friendly but I have my doubts as they contain formaldehyde and are form of plastic. That said, they do work really well on things like bathtubs!
