          The Husky #2 x 1-1/2 in. Phillips Screwdriver features an alloy-steel blade that is heat treated for strength and nickel plated for corrosion resistance. The precision-formed tip provides engagement with fasteners and limits cam-out and stripped screwheads. Tough, durable butyrate handle withstands exposure to solvents and chemicals commonly found on worksites and in automotive shops.

          This line of screw drivers is an excellent choice for a solid, sturdy, inexpensive tool. The shafts are heavy duty and the #2 phillips head is very nicely built. The handles are tried and true as this style has been around for years, so it's been tested and desired. They should last a lifetime.
          I do wish the short stubby driver was also offered with a slightly longer handle as my large hands are barely able to grip it hard enough for a tight screw: maybe 1 inch longer would be perfect.
          Pros: Durable, Long-Lasting, Strong, Sturdy

          It's amazing to me how many different types of tape there are; tapes for ducts, tapes for masking, painting, etc. Sometimes I think there are just different labels and really only a few different types of tape. But this tape really is special in that it is strong (sticky and hard to tear) and especially good at sticking to insulation covers. It works great for insulation backing such as silver paper and white, and is a great addition to any toolbox.
          Pros: Easy to Apply, Easy to Use, High Quality of Material, Very Adhesive

          Not cheap, but not expensive, this chandelier is a great value and looks much more expensive than it is. My wife and I were looking for a replacement to go over our island in the kitchen and this one suited the bill to a tee. The shades are very attractive when lit and the metal has a nice patina and aged look that we love. It fit right in with our cabinet hardware. Very simple to install and the height is adjustable so you can fine tune it for your use. Highly recommended.

          This high quality LED is a 65-Watt incandescent equivalent but uses only 9-Watt of energy. That means it will only cost $1.08 per year to operate the lamp and will save you $924 in energy costs over the life of the lamp. It has a warm, soft white color (2700 Kelvin), standard medium (e26) base and is fully dimmable. It also has a color rendering index (CRI) of 90 which means it keeps colors true to how they appear in natural daylight. The lamp has a rated life of 25,000-hours which means it will last for over 22-years when used for 3-hours per day.

          I love saving money and also helping to lower my carbon footprint to use less energy overall. These lights help my wife and I do just that. They are much better than the cfl's I've used in the past cuz they last longer in my experience and have less heavy metals in them. They warm color light is very flattering to all colors of walls, furniture and people, and they dim very nicely.
          Pros: Easy Replacement, Eco-Friendly, Great Dimming

          This 36 in. steel grate is crafted from 1/2 in. solid steel rods. This grate will lift the firewood off the chimney floor allowing air to better circulate. The add benefit of the ember retainer will keep the burning embers close to the firewood to ensure a continuous burning fire.

          Beautiful grate and at a great price, what more could you ask for? It's very sturdy and heavy duty and has a nice extra heavy screen welded to the lower part so embers stay close to the wood so they stay nice and hot and the flame seems to be bigger. I've had quite a few grates in my day but none better than this one. And it's great that it comes in different sizes so you can make it really fit well.

          This diamond-impregnated core-style bit features superior long life and is ideal for drilling in both flat and contoured surfaces. Diamond grit a full 360-degrees around the circumference of the bit allows it to be used in a rasping action to enlarge a hole if needed. Holes on the side of the bit allow the removal of glass dust from inside the bit. For use on glass, ceramic wall tile, glass block, glass bottles, jewelry.

          Plants that grow inside a cage utilize the sides of the cage to support the stems and need fewer ties. Place one plant inside the cage and guide the stems through as they grow. This 54 in. heavy-duty tomato cage is ample enough to help keep even the largest tomato plants contained and under control without blocking sunlight or rain. Keeps plants growing tall and off the ground for better air circulation. Large openings make harvesting easy. Reusable and great for the organic gardener. Can be used in a garden bed, raised garden, or for container gardening. Cages are easy to take up at the end of the season for storage.

          The Samsung StormWash Dishwasher cleans the messiest pots and pans without the hassle of pre-washing. This heavy-duty system has powerful rotating spray jets to clean at every angle for even tough to reach spots. The AutoRelease door pops open, to circulate air and accelerate drying time, while the third rack provides an additional 30% more capacity.

          Answer: 
          Hmmm, is your installation putting the dishwasher too deep into the cabinet?
          The escaping steam should just clear the countertop in the front. And until the door pops open at the end of washing not much steam should escape at all.
