    Product review of camp stove.

    Despite all the conveniences of modern life, millions of Americans still love retreating to rustic cabins, RV parks, and secluded camp sites across the country. One of the greatest pleasures of a summer vacation such as those above is cooking outdoors over an open flame; but not everyone is gifted when it comes to getting a wood fire going, and who needs the mess of a charcoal grill.

Among the best features of the Camp Chef Table Top Sport Stove are the two 30,000 BTU/hour burners.

    These burners can tackle any cooking task from pancakes and bacon in the morning to lobster boils or pasta for dinner. The portable grill also comes with four removable legs that stand 20 inches high and can be easily attached and removed for compact transport. The stove’s closable lid serves as a windshield while cooking and protects the stove during transport when closed. The portable camp stove is the perfect travel companion for anyone headed to the cabin, RV park, or campsite. Few users could find negative remarks to make about the Camp Chef Camping Stove with the majority loving the portable nature of the stove as well as the solid power of the unit.

    The Duncraft Platform Bird Feeder Is An All Weather Conditions Feeder

    August 2nd, 2020

    Product review of platform bird feeder.

    The Duncraft Platform Bird Feeder is the perfect way for nature lovers to feed a variety of birds! The feeder is squirrel-proof and made entirely of metal in order to withstand the changing temperatures outdoors. A roof protects the feeder from rain and snow, and the sturdy construction wards off chewing from animals. Holding one pound of seeds, you can fill the bellies of quite a few birds! With options to hang or post-mount the platform bird feeder, this is one product that is attractive and accommodates birds of all types. Although the Duncraft feeder has plenty to offer, other feeders on the market have the same amenities.

    For example, the Brome Wild Bird Feeder has room for a variety of birds, while keeping out squirrels. Reviews are positive because this feeder has 6 different feeding stations and multiple perches. However, many customers still preferred the Duncraft, as it’s made from metal instead of plastic and offers a protective roof. Ratings from owners are mixed, as some had great experiences with the feeder. Online reviews loved the durability, screened bottom and attractive look of the feeder. Yet others had less positive things to say, with a common problem being that the feeder doesn’t ward off squirrels. In fact, some people found that squirrels were more attracted! Although many reviews stated that squirrels were indeed a problem, they weren’t able to eat from the feeder as much as others on the market. All in all, this is the perfect bird feeder for handling a variety of birds, while looking attractive in the yard.

Perfect for camping trips or the sandy beach, this blanket features an anti-pill fleece side with a nylon backing. It’s available in a wide range of colors and can comfortably fit 2 to 3 people. If the blanket gets wet, you can dust it off or toss it in the washing machine. For easy travel, the blanket comes with double web carry straps. Waterproof picnic blankets are hot sellers, as they’re affordable, easy to care for and give an added layer of protection while eating and relaxing outdoors.

    A comparable product on the market includes the Tuffo Water Resistant Blanket, which features the same water-resistant nylon back. What makes the Turfer product the preferred choice is that it’s less expensive and features a layer of thick polar fleece. The fleece material adds comfort and durability, preventing the blanket from flying away; a common complaint with the Tuffo blanket. This waterproof picnic blanket has gotten excellent reviews and product owners report that it’s an affordable choice that offers plenty of benefits. Customers rave about the durability and functionality of the blanket, as well as how easy it is to shake off and have clean again. There are no negative comments about the blanket, except for a few issues regarding the size being too small.

    The Large Plano 3500 Tackle Box Is A Very Sturdy Plastic Tackle Box

    March 24th, 2020

    Product review of plastic tackle boxes.

    Tackle boxes are meant to keep items organized and easy to find, but too often they begin to resemble a junk drawer after only a few uses. When you run out of compartments and spaces, things begin to accumulate on top of each other. The Plano 3500 Size Tackle Box looks to eliminate the clutter by providing a space for all of your tiny, easy-to-lose items. This plastic tackle box stands at just under a foot tall and is about 11” wide, and has four pull-out organizer trays that can hold just about anything needed for fishing or crafts. There is also a storage bin on the top of the box that has no dividers, so larger items can be stored with ease.

    When on-the-go, the trays and lid lock securely in place, keeping your items from shifting or becoming loose. Customers who have bought this tackle box really enjoy having a large amount of divided areas for keeping different beads or lures organized, and have reported that even when it is accidentally dropped, everything stays exactly where it’s supposed to. Some customers have felt that the box is a little on the small side, though.

Others state that cardinals don’t care much for the feeder, as it’s difficult to get food from as the wire mesh. Even with some negative feedback, most people agree that this feeder is a friendly option for hungry cardinal.
