          I have some of the thin enameled water bath canners. They work fine for a couple of seasons but they are pretty flimsy. I always worry when I have to lift them by their light weight handles and sooner or later the enamel chips or cracks. This canner is very strong and durable. I also like the light stainless steel. I can really tell if it is clean or not at a glance. It would be useful for cooking soups as well. I love it!
          Pros: Convenient, Easy to Clean, Easy to Use, Good Size & Weight, Looks Great, Nice Design

          The Hilti 4-1/2 in. Angle Grinder features a powerful 7 Amp motor capable of generating up to 11,500 RPM for grinding tough materials. Its low-profile head lets you grind and cut in tight spaces, while the side handle adjusts easily for right- or left-handed use. The protective wheel guard can be re-positioned without tools.

          It would have gotten a 5 star if the box had arrived with all the parts inside. It is missing the all important abrasive cutting disc. So if you get one check the box. That said, it is well made. I like how sturdy it feels. Good solid construction that should last a long time. But the weight is not so much that it is hard to use even for me. I feel it is a good unit

          Everyone needs one of these sets for the home. If you never use it for anything else except thawing out frozen padlocks in winter it is worth the price to have it on hand when you need it. This is a really well made tool. It is easy to hold. It fits the hand nicely and the trigger is easy to use. It has a variety of adjustments so you flame is well controlled. It is pressure regulated which means that it works even if it is tilted a bit. And best of all it comes complete in the box with the fuel included. That's awesome.
          Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, Good Size & Weight, Lots of Features, Nice Design, Sturdy, multi functions

          The DCS374B Cordless Band saw is ideal for cutting schedule 40 pipe, uni strut or all thread. This tool allows you to take the band saw to the work. No need to be tied to the bench or a cord.

          No, I do not recommend this product.
          The thing weighs a ton. Only a strong man could use it. To me it is a scary tool. Perhaps once I press it into service I will feel differently but it doesn't come with the battery included so before I can use it I have to go and buy a battery. There may be times it will be invaluable, the only way to make certain cuts but for all other cuts something else would be lighter and safer to use. Not enough safety covers to protect the operator. Like a chain saw you have an exposed blade moving really fast but unlike a chainsaw you are on top of the unit holding at the front and the rear. It weighs a lot.
          Pros: Durable, Sturdy
          Cons: Difficult to Use, Too Heavy, battery not included

          This is the only kind I will ever buy again. Every last staple was able to be stapled without jamming. The design is superior. The functionality is superior. It's easy to reload but best of all IT WORKS every time all the time. So the job is finished more quickly and there is a lot less frustration. I'm throwing all the other ones I have away. Or giving them away. This is all I'll ever use again.
