WHAT’S HANGING? Well, my new HotelSpa Aquacare Series Insta-mount 24-Inch Towel Bar
is. I waited for several weeks to post this review because I wanted to make sure the bar was secure and that there weren’t any problems with it so I could give an accurate appraisal. I am very happy to report that the bar has had NO problems whatsoever and has been a great addition to our shower. The way our master bathroom is arranged, there wasn’t a good place to put a towel or the bath mat between showers and this effectively solved our problem. This towel bar was super simple to install. It can be easily removed for cleaning and then easily reinstalled. It holds up to 20 lb and while it’s great in the bathroom, I can see one being useful in the laundry room as well. In fact, I liked this so much, I went after and got a second one. And, for those of you wondering, that is the DreamSpa 19-Setting 3-Way 2-in-1 Luxury Shower Combo
that I won last year in the shower. We like it a lot, too.

CUSHY COMFORT: I needed new house slippers after my last pair (not purchased on QuiBids) started falling apart after only two months. I saw these Muk Luks Flower Fair Isle Fleece Espadrille Slippers
on QuiBids and thought they might be good ones. They are the Muk Lucks brand which I have had success with and they looked snug and comfy. Shanon Clear Griffin said she and her daughter liked them so I was encouraged. I won these for $2.23 using 13 vb for a savings of $22.77 or 91%. I have been wearing them for about a week and have been super happy with them so far. I love that they fit so perfectly. They are snug but not tight, warm but not hot, and they have the rubber sole on the bottom so I can run out and get the mail, etc. without having to change shoes. By the way, the color of mine is called “Blue Eyes” and its a very nice blue. I definitely recommend these.
NOW WE’RE COOKING! My kitchen upgrade continues….I won this great (BergHOFF) Bistro Covered Cast Iron – 7in
+ 1X Gameplay using just 4 vb and paying $2.62. My savings was $47.37 or 95%. I was very much attracted to this pan because, first, it’s stainless steel. Second, I have a large one (also BergHOFF) with the steam vent and I wanted a smaller, more practical sized one for every day. I really liked the fact, as well, that it is a BergHOFF product and I’ve had very good success with them. This saucepan is a very good size…7″ and it holds 2 quarts. I really like the clear lid because you can see inside. My primary Triplinox set has stainless lids and you have to open them to see how things are going inside. Another bonus is that it will work on my gas stove or on an induction surface. I sometimes carry a small induction burner when I travel and I can carry this to use on the road. All in all, a good find and a great win.
(1) Although it is listed on Q as covered cast iron, it’s stainless steel.
(2) Not all items that are made by BergHOFF have that clearly stated on QuiBids…but if you look closely and do your research, you can find some wonderful items.
(3) If you want to buy this on Amazon, it will cost you $59.99 plus shipping. I always comparison shop. This was a good deal any way you look at it.

ANY WAY YOU SLICE IT: This is a great knife. I won this Gourmet Line Bread Knife from BergHOFF
using just 3 vb and paying $3.22 giving me a savings of $36.77 or 92%. I tried several times in the past to win a good bread knife with no success until this one. I have to say, it is the best bread knife I’ve ever had…and I’m including my Cutco knife. This knife slices through bread super easily. The cuts are sharp and even and there isn’t even the slightest tearing of the bread. Both my son and I are very impressed with this knife. (He suggested I get a second one since I make all our bread.) The knife is of European design and it is precision forged, ice hardened stainless steel. Although it isn’t advertised as being a BergHOFF product, I thought I recognized it and so I checked and, sure enough, it is the BergHOFF so I went after it. I had no idea I would win it so quickly…just 3 bids. I have been very happy with the BergHOFF products I have gotten and I recommend them.
