Notes from the Community

This is my second ACE Plus Blender. The first was returned when I made soy milk and the plastic around the blade shaft melted. I followed the directions exactly as written. The first blender was melted completely through. I didnt take a picture because I thought it was a single bad blender.The new blender came and I made a smoothie, nut milk and soup and it was fine. I finally made soy milk because thats honestly a big reason why I bought it. The first batch of soy milk was fine. No melting. Then a yesterday I made another batch and this time there was partial melting as you see in the picture. Yes, amazon will stand behind it. Thats why I buy from them. While I really want another blender Im afraid to take the chance. BTW, the soy milk is amazing as was everything else Ive made Since I am obsessed with my Instant Pot Max cooker, I decided I had to take the plunge and try their new blender. I am so glad I did! It arrived safely with good packaging and took less than 2 minutes to set up. It is very professional looking with a heavy, quality glass pitcher. It even fits perfectly under my kitchen cabinets which I love and looks like a premium quality small appliance sitting on my countertop. I quickly whipped up a smoothie in no time. My boyfriend was hoping for a frozen margarita but I opted for a healthy smoothie instead! I was super excited to try making my own Almond Milk. This blender made that a breeze (it even comes with a reusable strainer bag saving me even more money)! I will never buy store bought almond milk again. I cant wait to try making Almond butter in this blender.After reading through the short user manual, I found out you can make hot soup with this blender. Who knew?! We love chicken tortilla soup so that is next up on our dinner menu this week.Who knew cooking could be so much fun?!If your like me and dread cleaning your blender, dont worry, it even has a cleaning feature. They thought of everything.Trust me, buy it…you wont be disappointed. I like it because its very convenient to make nuts milk and the nuts milk is tasty. I do not like the quality. See the picture of mine. It is melting from the first time being used. If the quality gets control very good, I will buy it again. I decided on the Ace instead of going with one of the super expensive other blenders that everyone is using now. Ive only used it a couple of times but so far Im very happy with it.Im vegan & make a cheese sauce out of oats & some other things & it needs to cook to thicken. I was excited to use the cooking feature of the blender to do this! My sauce came out smooth, creamy & thickened to perfection! (Check out Jill McKeevers 5 minute game changer cheese sauce)Im very satisfied with my new blender! I use it for everything that I know how to make. I do need a cookbook for soups. Nothing to complain. Best. Product. Ever. We have purchased this blender after using a friends, so that we can make fresh baby food for our grandchildren and smoothies for our diets. Our prior blender was approximately 30 years old so it was time for a new and improved model. We are thrilled with this product! The best blender ever

Notes from the Community

I have enjoyed bai drinks in the past but the latest order of 12 had four bad bottles—of different flavors. I opened my 9th bottle and drank from it—and realized it was spoiled. I found brown floaties in it. Upon examination I found the last three bottles also had brown sediment. These bottles had ENJOY BY NOV 5 2019 on them. I would have thought, having been in cold storage, they would have lasted until February. I have to wonder at what stage of decomposition the first 8 bottles were in when I drank them… I love this stuff, so much so I bought a second case. Unfortunately, quality control was lacking and the 2nd (and 3rd replacement batch) was yellow in color and off in taste from the product I know. (Color should be a cloudy white)So Ill need to find another distributor of this product. Something going wrong in the amazon warehouse. In the past I have been ordering the Coconut and Coconut Pineapple 12 packs on auto-ship and save and have absolutely loved them. This time I was running low so I ordered 4 additional six packs to hold me over until my auto ship and save ordered arrived. This order turned out to be horrible!!! All 4 boxes appeared to be contaminated with something. A few bottles were okay but the majority of them were so awful we were unable to drink them. They had a chemical taste that is hard to describe. I will not be ordering these again. They dont even deserve 1 Star. Im hoping I can get my money back.Update: I requested a partial refund which was immediately approved. I rate their customer service 5 stars. I really dont know what happened with this batch but I continue to love Bai Coconut Water. Thank you. So I gave this three stars instead of four, because I only ended up liking 2 out of the 4 flavors that come in the variety pack which was unfortunate for me. I like the original and lime flavors best. The others taste like cough syrup/very artificial to me. Lime adds a hint of flavor and the coconut by itself is refreshing. This might just be a personal preference though. They came in tact. Personally, I think theyre a little bit pricey for the amount you get but I would suggest trying each individual flavor before buying the variety pack blindly. I picked up a bottle of the Bai Coconut Flavored Water at my grocery store for $2. My goal was to find a beverage that did not use any artificial sweetener other the Stevia. I loved the taste, but the price? Not so much. So I jumped online and found this 12 pack on Amazon at a fantastic price. Yay! It included free Prime shipping. I love this drink and will be buying again and again. Now I need to try the other flavors! Love this stuff. When I am tired of morning coffee and need something with a little variety, a little taste and something half decent for you, this is it. Great pick me up in the afternoon if you are looking for a little taste of something and you dont really know what. I purchased 2-12packs of the Molokai Coconut waters, the first 12-pack tasted great. The 2nd 12-pack has a rancid taste with a very strong smell (it smells as bad as it tastes). We threw out 3 trying to find one that didnt taste bad, there are 8 left in the pack and we are afraid to try another one. The sad thing is I ordered 2 more 12 packs before I opened this last defective pack. If youre looking for something that taste like coconut water, go elsewhere. I bought this instead of my normal coconut water because of a coupon and the good reviews. Imagine a cheap coconut lotions smell, and that what this taste like. The first ingredients are water and stevia.

Notes from the Community

This stainless steel scale works really well for us. For the price you cant beat it.If you cook and bake a lot like we do, the scale helps achieve an accurate measurement. Its super convenient when a recipe calls for an ingredient in grams and you dont have the tools to measure, this scale is simple to use and accurate.In our video you can see it turns on quickly. You can change the unit while the item is on the scale. And it turns off within seconds.Weve used this scale many times over the last few years and we are still using the same AAA batteries it came with.The small grips on the bottom of the scale are nice to have.Overall its a great scale and even better price! Bought this scale to weigh my litter of puppies. Its fantastic so far. I just put a plate on it, tare the plate, and then set a puppy on it. Works like a charm. Would definitely recommend it. Plus its very nice looking. Great for the kitchen if thats what youre buying it for. This scale is terrible. It is true, you get what you pay for and I only paid $8. The weight reading continues to move up and down. I used a calibrated scale side by side and weighed 4 grams. This scale went back and forth from 3-5 while the other one gave exactly 4. Honestly wish I had spent a little extra money on a better scale. I work in law enforcement and need more precise weights than +/- 1. Edit 5/9/19 - So the seller asked if I would receive a new unit at this point to see if they could take care of the original issues I had with the first product. This unit seems to have fixed all of my original issues with the product over the past 2 weeks. They went above and beyond to make sure I was satisfied. I would recommend.Original review - I meal prep and I bought this to weigh out all my food for the entire week and then cook. The one day I cook a week I use this scale for maybe a half-hour in total on time. I turn it off and then the next week I go to turn it on the batteries are dead. Ive changed the batteries everytime I use it essentially. This thing drains the battery even when not in use. Easy to use, pretty accurate scale, love the way it looks (very sleek and easy to clean since its a stainless steel top)The only issue i had is looking at the actual read out… Since the entire thing is pretty flat on the top, if you place any sort of decent sized bowl or plate, it completely obstructs the digital screen. You end up having to see if you can push back the bowl and get a look at while bending over to look under the curve of the bowl or placing a thinner box and the plate or bowl on top of the box.Honestly the scale would have been 5 stars but the fact you cant see the display without going through a mission is pretty annoying.EDIT: After giving it 3 stars Etekcity contacted me to let me know that they had a larger version and sent it free of charge, it was the Etekcity Digital Kitchen Scale Multifunction Food Scale with 30% Wider Platform 11lb 5kg, 3 GP Batteries Included (Stainless Steel), which pretty much negates the issue I mentioned above. And after I looked it up they have a newer version of the one I was sent that has the read out to the side which seems even more practical.For customer service alone, I had to raise my initial 3 stars to four! I just recently received this beautiful and most of all easy to use kitchen scale by Etekcity! This scale was extremely accurate and precise. When measuring cooking ingredients, I was relieved to know that the digital scale did not become imprecise, meaning bouncing back and forth between decimal points despite the unit changes when shifting to and from grams, ounces, and milliliters. Overall, the scale could also virtually fit anywhere in a kitchen (I.e., kitchen drawer, cabinet, on the counter etc.) In addition, the scale is quite nicely made and I suspect that it will be very durable and last me a long time! I considered long and hard about how to rate this product. It is designed to do one thing, weigh small amounts of food. It is aesthetically designed well. And that is as far as it goes in delivering on its intended function. The tare or zero function is coupled to the measuring function. Meaning, when you put a dish on the scale then zero the display, the resulting value will include the weight of your finger pushing the button. The product fails to do what it is advertised to do; accurately measure the weight of food. The designer must not be an engineer. I would recommend another product to weigh food. I will be returning this and finding a better product. When I do I will update this review with my findings. (I gave it two stars because. It looks nice) Not sensitive to low weights. The scale is almost useless for measuring out spices and yeast and other items which are in the low single digits of grams. You can only work around it by putting something heavy on the scale (like a plate), then putting the measuring paper on top of that and then pouring on the ingredient. The last scale I bought from Amazon did not have this problem.The scale is also grossly imprecise, on the order of 10-20%. This can be tested easily - put a cup on the scale and measure a significant amount of ingredients, say 14 grams of salt and 6 grams of sugar. Remove the cup and put a different cup on the scale, tare the weight, then pour in what should be 20 grams from the first cup. It will come out WAY different.This scale is basically trash. The last scale I bought from amazon was routinely accurate to within 1%.


JETech Screen Protector for Apple iPhone 8 and iPhone 7, 4.7-Inch, Tempered Glass Film, 2-Pack

See Price


Description

Notes from the Community

Let me start by saying that I am EXTREMELY precise and picky when it comes to placing things like this- window films, phone protectors, anything that could be askew or have air bubbles. The product arrived with relatively clear instructions. I cleaned the phone screen and placed the protector on with the handy guides (small sticky handles that let you see what youre doing). I got it straight the first time, and with a simple tap watched that ever-so-satisfying clearness that indicates the screen is adhering to the glass phone screen. With almost no pushing it went all the way to the edges with not a single bubble or spec of dust. I am absolutely thrilled with this product! The fact that it came with TWO for such an affordable price makes me wish Amazon had a 6-star system. The package includes 2 screen protectors, each with their own set of the following:-Cloth for cleaning the screen-Blue dust film-2 guide stickers to place the protector on the phone screenI just received my package today, and Im glad I bought this product. I have an iPhone 7, and the protector fits perfectly on it. The instructions are clear, the screen protector itself is thick and not a flimsy piece of film, so Im confident it will protect my screen. (I will update my review in the event that I drop my phone and the protector doesnt keep my phones glass screen intact.) ALSO the protector doesnt show smudges from fingerprints (I was very pleased about this). You should be precise and careful when applying the protector to align it well.The protector doesnt cover the entire face of the phone, but it does cover the entire glass screen (which is what its essentially for). I agree with other reviewers who say that the protector is sized this way, so as to not interfere with any phone case you may have on it. I have a phone case, so Im glad the protector doesnt cover the entire face of the phone.Overall Im pleased with my purchase, and definitely recommend others to buy it. I would give 0 stars if I could. Its a 2 pack. I have put many of these on in the past and these are the worst by far. Had to use both and even the second one does not adhere to the edges and also bubbles that will not come out. If I wasnt so desperate to have protection on my phone, I would not have used the second one and sent them back. Just thought I would of had better luck from the second one! NOPE SAME RESULTS!! Stay away from these. Sometimes cheaper doesnt mean better. Jet tech is off my list of screen protectors. Spend an extra dollar or more and get a quality screen protector. The first time I bought this item, the screen protector lasted for about eight months. Then I put the second screen protector on my phone and it cracked overnight. I never dropped or threw my phone so not sure how that happened. I ordered another set this week put the first one on my phone and it cracked by the evening. I dont toss my purse around & my purse is padded so not sure why theyre cracking but I wish it lasted as long as it did the first time.UPDATEThe company actually contacted me after my review and apologized for the faulty screen that I received. They were so kind and generous on the phone they offered me a new set of tempered glass with this nifty placement tool for precise application. I am extremely impressed with the company striving for customer appreciation. I give this product a 5 Star revised review. The screens are great! Like I said, loved my first set so perhaps I just received a lemon on my second order. Let me begin by saying that I take very good care of my iPhone and am extremely careful, but accidents do happen so I have used tempered glass screen protectors from different companies on my each of my phones for years. This is the first one that cracked the first time I dropped my phone. I continued using the cracked screen protector since it had only been a couple of weeks since I put it on. However, the cracks just kept spreading (without me dropping it!), so I was forced to replace it with the second screen protector that came in the pack. I dropped my phone a couple of months later and instantly the screen protector cracked. Over a few days, the cracks spread just from regular use and now I see that theres a crack UNDER the screen protector on my actual phone! There are so many tempered glass screen protectors out there…I do NOT recommend this one!The company stated that they guarantee their screen protector but refused to pay for my damaged iPhone…whats the point? This screen protector is the easiest to install of any I have purchased for a fraction of the price. Despite what some reviewers have said, this is very thin glass - not plastic. It is tempered, so even when it cracks it can be removed in one piece. I would agree that the protector may not be the most durable, but I think this has more to do with the design of the iPhone 7 face (curved edges at the sides of the phone) than the screen protector. My protector cracked after I dropped my phone where it hit a concrete curb, so I considered it evidence that it did its job and took the fall for my actual screen. I use this protector with a Speck phone case and it fits perfectly.I had my original screen protector on for several months and just replaced it with the second in the package. I am reordering this product. I have the worst luck with screen protectors. Usually its because I get dust or small hairs on the sticky side while taking the backing off. This one was no exception and I saw 2 pieces of debris that I had to scrape off with my fingernail before sticking the screen protector to the phone.Surprisingly, it still stuck! I love the guide stickers, they really helped. However, there was a bubble that would not go away. So I carefully pulled back one of the corners to release the bubble and stuck everything back together and it looks great.That was a long story just to say that the installation process can handle a bit of human error while still achieving a smooth finish :).

Notes from the Community

I love the camera. It looks really nice, and works well.My only problem is the so-called instructions. They are REALLY poorly translated from Chinese, to the point of some paragraphs being completely incomprehensible. And the instructions are WAY too minimal. Anybody up for studying how the camera operates, how the features work, and writing a decent instruction manual?? 😁 This product is an addition to my insurance policy. It is a great help when someone dings my car and starts pointing I did it. California is famous for insurance scams involving accidents Im not paranoid just careful. Plus I want a memory card. When I received this camera and unpacked it I was totally impressed, the quality is super for the price. Works great and very easy to use and understand. I give this product a 10. If you need a car cam this is it. I received a broken product. The ring for tightening the holder is broken. Also, if you leave a 5-star review, you have a chance to receive a 16 GB SDcard. Is this correct? Small enough to put in front of mirror not intrusive. Beautiful 1080p with auto correct. Easy to set up and it automatic once set up you dont have to think about it again unless you need it one of my best buys Great little dash cam! Absolutely wonderful camera and a God send in the area I live in, where people drive like their butts are on fire and dont pay attention to anyone else on the road. Gotta have that extra protection in case you get car insurance scammers, as I have had before! The only bad thing about this product is the absolutely HORRIBLE instruction manual they pack with it. It tells you almost nothing about how to use many of its features. So far, so good! I hope I never need the camera footage! This is an excellent product. Im buying a second one for my wifes car

Notes from the Community

It is rare that I am compelled to write reviews for purchases, and very rare that I write a review 15 minutes after opening the box. I just got this item and tried it in my car and was blown away by how well it worked. In combination with how many confusing reviews there were for these types of products, which would complain about the most minor issues as if they were deal breakers, I decided to add a slightly more thorough (and less whiny) review.DISCLAIMER: I DID NOT TEST THIS PRODUCT WITH HEADPHONES AS THAT IS NOT WHAT I AM USING IT FOR. This review was also written after only using it for a short while. If this sentence is still in the review when youre reading it, it means that I am still happy with the product, have had no issues with the unit since writing this review, and have had no reason to update this review with further information.First off, let me describe my use case as this is important for your decision. I have an old JVC head unit in my car with no USB port or bluetooth functionality, only a headphone jack. I listen to YouTube and bandcamp music a lot through my phone (Xperia Z5 Compact) with an aux cable, and the headphone jack on my phone has something wrong with it causing audio to cut out at the slightest bump. I still love the phone, though, and dont want to replace it (out of warranty). So, I turned to this very inexpensive idea to try and fix my issue. (Ive been wanting bluetooth in the car for a long time, anyway.) I also use navigation on my phone pretty frequently.So, the unit is very small and lightweight (a good thing) and the 3 buttons are laid out just fine. The packaging is good and you get everything you need except a 12v cigarette lighter adapter to charge the unit in the car if yo have no free USB ports (but those are very cheap as well.) I did not read the manual (dont need to.)Onto actually using it. All I did was take it out of the box, power it on, pair it with my phone via Bluetooth, and then plug it in in the car. The headphone jack on it is very tight, which I think is a good thing because it means your jack will likely not loosen over time with lots of use as the one on my phone did. The unit pairs quickly and easily. Also, I noticed a lot of reviews on these that complained about the fact that you have to hold the power button for ~1.5sec when you first get in the car. This is ONLY an issue if you want the unit to be hidden and out of sight. I dont care at all about this and it doesnt affect me at all. Also, is it really that big of a deal to reach into your glove box and push the power button for 1.5 sec to turn it on? Just dont put it in a stupid spot to get to and route your aux cable well.The only issue I had with the unit in testing is that I powered it off while audio on a YouTube video was going, and then powered it back on, and the audio would not play through the car speakers again---only the phone speakers. This was a simple fix for me just by disabling and re-enabling Bluetooth. So, I dont think this is an issue as I wont be doing that in the car normally.The buttons on the unit will actually control the functionality on your phone. So, if you hit the pause button, it will actually pause the media (youtube video, song, etc.) you are listening to on your phone. The volume buttons actually change your phones media volume. I did not expect this (not sure why) but I absolutely love it. There is a slight lag time from pressing the button to it actually pausing, but I dont care.The sound quality was exactly the same as my aux cable (when it worked). This was determined by listening to the same YouTube video (a song) I had listened to a short while before. The sound quality is actually excellent. I DID NOT NOTICE any audio popping when I paused the music or powered the unit on/off, as some reviewers have mentioned. So, I give the sound quality full points on my particular unit. Your mileage, however, may vary. This is a cheap item made in China, so I bet there is a lot of variability between units and I lucked out (so far.)And that pretty much sums the unit up for me. It works very simply, and it works well. Now, there is only time left to tell whether or not the unit will last. I plan on leaving it in my car all the time plugged in via cigarette lighter, we will see if this seems safe once summer comes back around and the unit gets hot.Again, if this review still has these sentences in it, it means I am still happy as can be with the unit for my use case and have had no issues. I will update if I have any issues. This thing works great right out of the box. All I did was plugged it into my AUX port, press the main button to pair with my phone, and thats all. Im able to listen to my podcast over my car speakers, as well as make and receive calls. On a single charge I have gone about three or four days which is a lot because I do a lot of driving for work. When the battery is going low it will sound an alert over the speakers letting you know. It will also send a notification to your phone with the batteries percentage. Youre able to pair two devices to it pretty easily. The song quality is just as good as it was with my aux cord without all the wire all over the car. As far as the construction I think its made of plastic but that really doesnt matter because Im not going into combat with it. I just plug it in and leave it alone and Im not worried what its made of. One good thing I can mention is that even when the battery is going low you can plug it in with the micro USB, and charge and play at the same time with no feedback noise. Tested it out on a couple different things and notice we can make the kids gaming headsets Bluetooth as well as stream to any home stereo with aux if that is something you could use. All in all very good deal for the money. Im hoping that future models are made smaller though. Its actually pretty small but the smaller the better. During the warm months in Texas, which is basically all the time, I mow our property while wearing a pair of 3M worktunes hearing protectors. Listening to the radio is a big improvement over nothing, but over the years radio programming has gotten worse and Ive wanted to listen to Spotify or audiobooks. Theres nothing wrong with my headset, and a new bluetooth-enabled one was like $70. SO (!), using the 3.5mm headphone jack, which thankfully it does have, I was able to mount this little device and ta-da! Now I have bluetooth headphones for $14 instead of $70.It was easy to set up and the sound quality seems great. My only concern, to-be-determined, is durability. It looks like a very high quality unit but this one is going to be subjected to lots of direct sunlight, dust, vibration and bumps. So we shall see. But so far, its a very cost-effective way to upgrade older audio equipment. Usually I have an iPod (old school, I know) plugged into my car stereo, but recently Ive started using my phone for music. My car stereo deck is not bluetooth capable so I had to look for other options. Since my phone has no 3.5mm jack, bluetooth was my only option. I found this product on Amazon and I am more than happy with my purchase. I am not an audiophile but I am quite picky when it comes to the sound quality of my music. I run about 1500W to my door speakers and sub so it is important that the quality of the music is good. This product does a wonderful job of allowing my old stereo deck to continue to be useful while moving to the modern world of streaming music.My only compliant - a relatively minor one - is that a beep is heard when switching tracks over the speakers. This can be fixed if my phone is not on max volume. If I turn my phone down one notch below max, then everything is fine. Not game breaking, just a minor inconvenience. I dont use the microphone.I bought this because its small and I intend to velcro it onto my motorcycle helmet. Also because it only has one button on the front - play/pause, which makes it easy reach back and pause playback with gloves on.Its very light, which will help it stay on my helmet.Im a little concerned that the velcro wont stick to the luxe finish very well, but so far it seems ok. Maybe super glue will solve it if it becomes a problem.Im pleasantly surprised by a seemingly unintended feature… you can press almost anywhere on the front face and it will play/pause - you dont have to push the actual button. This will make it even better for gloved use.Sound is good, but Im no audiophile and such things dont make much difference in a helmet.
