  • Summary: This is a really good quality drill. It is probably awesome for most people but is just too much drill for my needs. If you are planning on drilling screws into wood as the primary use (as opposed to using a drill bit), consider going with a 12v or even 9.6v model.
  • Pros: heavy, almost too much power to drive screws (slips out off screw head because so fast)
  • Cons: heavy, almost too much power to drive screws (slips out off screw head because so fast)

  • Pros: Available torque, range of clutch settings, short recharge cycle, 1/2 inch chuck capacity.

  • Summary: This dishwasher cleans like no other. I have had several dishwashers and nothing has ever cleaned this well. It is now five years old and we are needing a repair. This is the second one in two months. This first was a design flaw, and this one, I don't really know what is wrong.
  • Pros: Cleans like no other dishwasher

  • Summary: The bosch mixer is great. I love to make my own bread and I am able to make 5 large loaves in a very fast time. Bosch has several attachments that can be bought separately. This saves on space when you only need one motor that does the work. I use mine almost every other day.
  • Pros: cost, hard to clean
  • Cons: cost, hard to clean

  • Summary: I was fortunate one birthday to receive the barrel grip instead of the more common top handle version. It has an on/off switch rather than a trigger. The speed is set by a dial. It is easy to operate in awkward positions as there is no need to hold the trigger. Overhead work is safe and fast with one hand. The blades available will cut any wood, steel, tile, anything. I use it to prune tree limbs. For the endless unknowns in remodeling work it is indespensible.
  • Pros: the tool works too well to complain about anything
  • Cons: the tool works too well to complain about anything

  • Summary: I love this jigsaw. It is the only jigsaw I would have. It cuts smooth and fast and the hollow ground T-top blades last. A professional woodworker friend bought one after using mine.
  • Pros: Durability and precision
