I've been using these for a couple of weeks now, and they're holding up well in the dishwasher as promised. They work exactly as you'd expect for butter, jam, etc. The only reason I didn't give them five stars is that they aren't as substantial feeling as "good" flatware. But they look fine and get the job done.

I purchased these bags because I thought they were primarily meant to extend the shelf life of fruits and vegetables (based upon the product description I read online). When I received the bags, the information that came with them didn't mention anything about keeping fruits or vegetables fresh. The product information focuses solely on using these at the grocery store instead of plastic bags. I decided to go ahead and keep the bags instead of going through the hassle of retuning them, since I can use them for storage anyway, but I feel like they were a waste of money.

It's weird to get excited about a trash can, but I honestly did about this one. I've already recommended it to two people. The finish really is fingerprint-proof, which amazed me. I love the slow-closing lid and the fact you can flip the little switch to keep the lid propped open. Between those and the step-to-open lid, I never have to touch my trash can again when cooking. The pull out and tilt feature is also nice for changing the liners. This design also fits nicely against a wall to save space.
I would have given this five stars except for two things. As others have mentioned about simplehuman cans, regular US-sized 13-gallon trash bags are a little too big. You can tuck the excess in between the bin and the container, but a little still poofs out and it takes adjusting. It would be much nicer if simplehuman would just make a slightly larger can. The liners they sell are expensive and not as thick or as stretchy as what other brands sell. The second thing is that the can came with a tag attached to the front with a black ribbon. In order to remove the tag, you have to cut the ribbon, but you can't get that flush so that the ribbon is completely cut away. You're left with a little bit of ribbon sticking out of the front.

I've had a couple of these gripper cutting boards for many months now and purchased two more because of how much I like them. The grippers really work extremely well - they aren't just little nubs that still slip on my counters. I also love the handle so that I can easily pick up the board to push the items into the pot / bowl / etc once finished cutting. The size is also great - it's large enough that one can cut many vegetables or a several cuts of meat without having to clear the board. My previous two have also held up well to the dishwasher. The only slightly negative thing is that the surface does get shallow cuts from cuts that require a lot of pressure.

Good grip but easily scratches

I've been using this cutting board for a few weeks now, and it's pretty good. The "feet" on the bottom do an excellent job of keeping the board in place, which was one of the main reason I chose this particular product. The surface is quite large, which is also a plus, and the opening to pick up the board is large enough to easily fit your hand into it. It has also held up well to dishwashing. However, the surface scratches very easily and shows cut marks.

Really works well

I specifically purchased these colanders for keeping small pieces in the colander while draining, and they definitely do that well. Although I haven't used it for something as small as quinoa, it's been able to keep small pieces of vegetable from slipping through.
I purchased both sizes (the 3qt and 5qt), and I'd say the 3qt is perfect for most people who cook for one to three people. It holds enough pasta for side dishes for four or a meal for two or three.
Overall, I'd purchase these again.
