Bought a new Weber Genesis E330 propane grill to replace our 14 year old Weber. Just put it together and can't wait to try it out! Bought some nice filet mignon from Costco to grill tonight.

Where can I get this fryer attachment in the USA?

I've checked both Amazon and Ebay and it looks like not shipped to the US?

I NEED the right tool for the job!

Easysurfer, I have no idea.

Back to our most recent purchase from Amazon, I just ordered this:



It's a new 1 TB portable external data storage device. I mentioned earlier on this thread (post #563)that I have been doing dual backups, one on a 64GB thumb drive that I just got, and one on my old, much smaller E-Go portable external hard drive. The E-Go just bit the dust, and I was pleased to discover that new, bigger drives are pretty cheap these days.

Nice external backup drive. That's the good thing about when old hardware bites the dust. You can replace with better and less costly.

I just ordered a "Skim Doctor". This is a device that supposedly improves the efficiency of in-ground swimming pool skimmers. I had never heard of this until earlier today when I was checking Amazon for the status of another order. It showed up as a recommendation. It interested me, so I read upon it. Great reviews and it addresses some of the issues I'm experiencing with my skimmers. Hope it works!!

I just ordered a Thera Cane due to my recent neck and shoulder issues. Tried one at PT and it was great.

Wow, 55 and raving about a therapy cane. I need a new life!

They do work well, be careful to be gentle till you get used to it. I was probably 56 when I bought one, tried it at PT, knew I wanted or needed one.

Sorry to hear of your issues, I'm going through the same stuff, two cervical epidurals did magic for pain. Now PT..and more PT....

Well, I didn't order from Amazon, but ended up corresponding with the manufacturer from the UK and ordered directly.

After several emails back and forth, figuring how to call internationally on my Tracfone, and going "what? excuse me?" a few times on the phone (American vs British accents), I ordered the fry attachment. Now I'm bloody pleased

Got back from VW dealer for TDI ECM software upgrade/recall.

Realized I had not changed cabin air filter in 4 years - it is due. I enjoy doing my own auto maintenance Easy job and purchase from Amazon.

New IP camera for the alpaca barn, old one has lost a lot of range of movement so it will become my workshop camera.

I ordered a 4 wheel golf cart. It just arrived, while I was out playing golf! It was cheaper with Amazon Prime than at local golf stores. Fortunately, it arrived fully assembled. Made in Oregon, which feels like supporting the neighbors. Looking forward to using it on Thursday. ⛳️
