Products

Cuisinart Electric Kettle
Electric Kettle
If you're a coffee or tea snob, you need an electric kettle that is accurate. When I want 175F water for green tea, or 190F for morning coffee, that's what I get. Also super easy to clean if you live in a place with hard water.
Doane Paper
Paper
This is a great line of project or idea notebooks that are great for writing or sketching ideas in. I generally buy a new one for every new project as I get started!
Kitchenaid Undercounter Refrigerator/Freezer Kudf204esb
Got this unit for a kitchenette/wet bar we added to our basement. It's quiet and takes up minimal space, but still manages to hold drinks in the fridge area easily plus have some freezer storage and an ice maker in the freezer drawer.
Lg Dle7300ve Dryer
Great dryer, with a super cool door that can either open vertically or horizontally. I love this feature for removing clothes...with the door opening vertically (like a dishwasher) I never accidentally dump clean clothes on the floor!
LG Laser Projecter
Projector
This is the greatest projector I have used for a small home theater, bar none. You can sit it just inches from a projection screen and get up to a 120" incredibly sharp and bright picture on the screen. If you don't like the noise of a ceiling mounted projector above your head, this is your solution. It's bright enough to be used with some light entering the room as well, unlike many home theater projectors.
Lg Wt7300cv Washer
Great, quiet top loader with an impeller, not an agitator. Keeps clothes looking great, and simple enough that you can make your kids do their own laundry!
Seal Krete Non-Skid Grip
Paint
Sonos One Gen 2
Speaker
Literally it just works. Plop a speaker into a room, set it up instantly, and you've got music. Yes, they're more expensive. But if you don't want your spouse staring daggers at you every time your hacked together alternative doesn't work when he or she wants to play music, just get the Sonos system. Their soundbars are similarly great, and you get the bonus of great music playing when you're not using the TV.
Taco vs. Burrito
Game
Bought this on @lizprc's recommendation and my kids are obsessed. Fabulous game!
Thermoworks Thermapen Mk4 Instant Read Thermometer
Thermometer
Just amazing, truly instant read and i love that the display rotates itself so you can always read it no matter what angle you use it at. I've used mine nearly daily for a year and it's still on the original batteries. More expensive than the knockoffs but totally worth it!
Tramontina Nonstick Pan
Cookware
Holy crap, you want a non-stick pan that you can really use and that won't lose its non-stickiness instantly? Tramontina is probably the brand your professional chef friends are using at home or at work. The handles even have silicone handle covers that can go in the oven to 400F. They've even got an extra-large 14" size that is amazing for cooking for your family if you've got the space on your stove.
Wusthof Serrated Bread Knife
Knife
This is a great knife for slicing bread, ripe tomatoes, or even steaks off the grill. It's also small enough that an older child can handle it easily (with proper supervision of course). It holds a sharpening super well for a long time too.

Home

Andonian Rug Services
Carpet Cleaner
Amazing place to handle higher end rugs, whether cleaning or repair. They also have an amazing showroom if you're looking to buy new rugs.
Better Meat Inc.
Butcher
Amazingly old school...need a leg of lamb for Christmas or Easter? Best place to order it from.
Capitol Hill Handyman
Handyman
Just amazing service, came for a quick outside gate repair, great communication and got the work done same day. Highly highly recommended!
CenturyLink
Internet Provider
Centurylink fiber is great once you get through the install. Cheap too, often they have a $65/mo unlimited 1gbps symmetrical offer for homes.
Chimney Specialists
Chimney
These guys came and did a great job on our fireplaces...super professional and were careful with a 100+ yr old fireplace with some delicate tile and woodwork. Highly recommended.
Clear Skies Cleaning
Window Washing
Clean Skies did a great job power washing our garage roof and some stone and concrete surfaces in our yard, as well as cleaning gutters and repairing a couple of downspouts.
Create a Scape
Landscaper
Michael and his crew are great at keeping our lawn and plants looking great all year long!
Froula Alarms Systems
Security
These guys have gone the extra mile to adopt a security system in our new home, rather than trying to force us to buy something new. Family-owned local Seattle business as well!
Greenwood Heating & Air Conditioning
HVAC
Awesome and thorough service every time.
Jack Russell Wildlife Control
Exterminator
Super great work sealing up an under porch area that had seen some raccoon/critter intrusion.
Lee Smith Electrical
Electrician
Super professional guys, always go the extra mile to get the job done quickly.
Marquiss Construction
Contractor
Marquiss Construction did a great job on some smaller repair projects for our house. They are great to work with!
Mr. Electric of Greater Seattle
Electrician
These folks were willing to come out for a small job and made sure to bring all the right parts based on our conversation beforehand. They gave me a firm quote after taking a look at the work and had it done quickly. Very professional.
Nancy Ralston Interior Design
Interior Designer
Super organized and really understands our priorities with regards to our interior design needs.
Rain Shadow Meats
Butcher
Excellent butcher, and they have a great service where they email you a "Fresh Sheet" on Tuesdays, with free doorstep delivery on Thursday afternoon.
Seattle Sight and Sound
Home Automation
Easy to work with, and listened to what our needs actually were while putting together some great recommendations.
Sky Nursery
Nursery
Just a great place to buy beautiful things for your garden, and super knowledgeable staff to answer questions about the plants and keeping them happy.
