Almost every household has a microwave. It has got to be one of the most convenient inventions in the modern-day world. Most people simply cannot live without it in their kitchens. You need it for a wide variety of functions.
These functions include; heating up food, baking small cakes, cooking light dishes, defrosting meat, boiling water, etc. I cannot possibly exhaust the uses of a microwave.
Now, an over the range microwave oven is simply a microwave that comes with a range hood. It is a 2-in-1 unit that is designed for installation over your countertop and therefore, included in the packaging is some mounting hardware for a quick and easy installation.
If you are like me, and you love your kitchen counters bare, then you will love these range of microwave ovens. I absolutely love getting into my kitchen and looking at all the beautiful melamine with no appliances placed on top.
So, having identified how useful a microwave oven is, and how important it is in a household, I must mention the greatest challenge: Noise. I absolutely hate the noise that is made by most microwaves, especially when I am trying to get my beauty sleep and someone is in the kitchen heating up something or cooking.
In this regard, I have decided to review only the best and quietest over the range microwaves in the market.Continue reading
Almost all hamster owners and behavioral researchers agree on this one thing: Hamsters absolutely love their wheels. They can clock up a couple of miles in just one night which is almost like running several marathons (for them).
The one problem with this is the amount of noise the hamster wheels make, especially since hamsters are particularly fond of exercising at night while we sleep.
Buying a wheel for your little hamster pet is not as easy as it may seem. There are many decisions that must be made such as the design, the material used in its making, the size, etc. You must also be in a position to know the risks, if any, that a specific wheel has, and how to spot a problem early before things go very wrong.
Being a hamster owner myself, I can tell you that it’s not about the design, but more on the material used in its making. Choosing the right wheel will definitely make the wheel safer for your precious hamster.Continue reading
Shop fans are different from the regular fans as they have a high-velocity output and their design is well suited for a garage or a job site. They can even be used at home to replace the AC to cool down the room.

A good quality shop fan will make it easier for you to work especially in the tough weather conditions.

Having an ice-cold drink when the temperatures are unbearable is one of life’s greatest pleasures, and everyone should consider having an ice maker machine in their homes.
Other places you are likely to find an ice maker machine are restaurants, hospitals, office, and hotels, where lots of people congregate at once. In such places, the demand for ice cubes is definitely high, and the refrigerator may not be able to handle this type of demand. For the extra hot summer days, this machine is a godsend.
Now, if you have ever heard an ice machine in operation, you can attest to the fact that it is loud – extremely loud. In most cases the noise level is deafening and even though it is for a short period of time, nobody wants to hear that much noise at all.
Imagine a family with a toddler or infant baby staying awake due to a noisy ice machine? It is no wonder that one of the most common complaints by customers in hotels and restaurants is the noise made by this machine.
For hotels and restaurants, investing in a quiet ice maker would save them from the bad reviews and help in retaining their customers.
Now, what do you need to know before buying an ice maker machine? Let me take you through a few factors that you will need to consider for this.Continue reading
Sometimes taming a bass in a room looks like taming the wildest and the most disobedient animal!
At least my teenager told me so. You already know he’s into music, so I’ve learned a lot from him. When he told me that picturesque thing about taming bass, I made a small research to see what he meant by that.
I came across lots of information on how people deal with low-frequency problems because they’re indeed an issue for all musicians.
I also came across many positive opinions on Auralex products which are very useful and successful in dealing with this problem.
So, let us see what is Auralex, which products does it have to offer us and more.Continue reading
