Geneva WorldRadio

Let me tell you a little story. One of these showed up last week for me to review, and, as I'm not especially excited by radios, it sat in its box for approximately a day until my husband noticed it. Then, being an audiophile, he promptly started opening the box like a kid on Christmas morning, and asked me while doing so if I got to keep it. Nope, I ...Read more

LILLÖN Charcoal Grill

Hmm, who makes this grill? My first thought was it was something from a Teletubbies set, then I quickly adjusted myself into appreciation for its bulbous form. It's from IKEA, if the diaeresis didn't tip you off. You can assemble this grill at two heights- standing or as a table grill- and the body is made of porcelain-enamelled steel with two vents to regulate air flow. They're not selling this ...Read more
