How Black and Decker Makes the Kitchen More Fun

Are you serious, Black and Decker isn’t just making quality tools but also things for the kitchen?

For the longest time Black and Decker has had the reputation for producing quality tools for all kind of jobs around the house. I have several items such as drills and battery-powered screw drivers that I used all the time after moving into my new home. Having a quality brand to depend on makes doing household fix-it’s a lot easier and stress free.

Several weeks ago I noticed DealDash had a lot of household items for the kitchen made by Black and Decker. Since I had not associated the brand with kitchen appliances I was hesitant, yet curious to see what retail prices were like and whether or not these appliances could be won in auctions for less than retail. I was pleasantly surprised to see a lot of the auctions were going for reasonable prices and I decided to watch for Black and Decker kitchen items my family or I might need.

How many choppers and dicers have you been through? I have gone through a ton since setting up household a long time ago. I have never found one that did the dicing or chopping the way I liked it, so lo and behold DealDash has a Black and Decker 1 ½ cup electric chopper on auction. I thought why not try to win one? I don’t make potato salad much any more because all that chopping and dicing is a lot of work. I set my bid buddy (your best friend when bidding) and waited to see if I could win. I did! Congratulations across the screen is a wonderful feeling.

For only $1.61 the Black and Decker chopper was mine. When it arrived so quickly (DealDash shipping is awesome!) I could not wait to try it and see how it worked. It works so well that I could chop a whole 3lb bag of onions in just a few seconds! I am not kidding. For such a small product and not all that expensive if you had to buy it, the Black and Decker chopper/dicer is fantastic!

Thanks DealDash, what a great find!

Great Deals on Rubbermaid Products

A few months ago I noticed an auction for some Rubbermaid Take Along containers.

They caught my eye because they were packaged in a large reusable tub that can be used to store other items in. The tub itself is a great benefit since you can see through it and know what you have packed inside.

I have two married children and they are always needing more to-go containers. The lids get lost, the dishwasher eats some of them, and the containers get left at school or at work. It can be really expensive to go out and buy more of these containers so I decided to get these Rubbermaid containers from DealDash.

I have used Rubbermaid products in the kitchen for over 25 years. I have never been disappointed with the quality of anything with the Rubbermaid brand. The plastic is durable, my dish racks and drainers last for years, seals are tight-fitting, spatulas never wear down, and being able to see inside these containers when sealed is a real benefit, too.

I only tried once to win the auction for the Rubbermaid 60-piece take along set. It was my lucky day! Not only did I win the auction on DealDash but it did not cost many bids either, the auction cost me $5.53. This was for a 60 piece set of quality Rubbermaid containers in all shapes and sizes. What fun it was for me to share my DealDash win with my family!

We all shared the different sizes and I was able to get new containers to replace older containers that I have been using for years. The rest of my family got all kinds of pieces too, and I know the Rubbermaid brand won’t let them down in durability and quality.

Thanks DealDash for having such great every day items we can win! With the quality brands available I always know if I don’t win the auction I can Buy It Now and be completely satisfied with my purchase, plus…..I get all my bids back for free!

Sweet Wins and KitchenAid Desserts

DealDash is the BEST bidding site I have ever been on. It is easy to win, a lot of fun, and a great place to discover sweet KitchenAid desserts!

I have won many items on Deal Dash. My most memorable win is the time I won the 6 quart KitchenAid Stand mixer during a free to the winner weekend! This stand mixer retails for $600 and I only used 326 bids to win it! 326 bids @ 15¢ per bid = $48.90.

DealDash has great promotions such as discount bids as low as 14¢, 50% off wins, and even FREE wins!  Well it was one of those times when they were doing a FREE win promotion and I was bidding on a cheaper 4 quart stand mixer that everyone else seemed to bidding on as well. Just as I thought I should go all in, the 6 quart stand mixer auction started so I decided to go all in on that instead and I left the other auction. This was a great decision because the next thing you know I got a notification telling me that I won!!

Won with 326 Bids on DealDash.com

I did not have to pay for the win and DealDash always has free shipping! I love bidding on Deal Dash!  I received the KitchenAid stand mixer in no time at all and I was able to use it for the holidays. The first thing I made was bread. The dough came out perfect! I also made a wonderful cream cheese icing that I stuffed in strawberries…YUM! They were a big hit at my holiday get together and the KitchenAid stand mixer allowed me to make a lot without the work. Here is the recipe:

By DealDasher crissyxoxo – shopping on DealDash since 2012. 

This year is my third year of bidding on online auctions. I began like many others with a few sites I really liked, a few that were not very good, and others that were outright bad news.

Being fairly new to online auctions I was not sure what I needed to look for or what my expectations were. Winning was the goal, of course, but being a winner beyond the “Beginner” stage where winning was pretty much a given took a lot of perseverance and money to become a winner with any consistency.

I began the process of elimination where most sites were eliminated because shipping was horrific and sometimes scary whether or not you would actually receive your wins. Once I narrowed down my choices to two or three sites, it became clearer every week why DealDash is really the best and most fair out of all the online auctions available today.

The free bids offered to bidders are unique to DealDash. While other sites offer special promotions for free bids of one type or another, DealDash offers free bids to anyone who is bidding and spends time at the top of an auction. The “free bid” meter at the bottom of the bidders screen shows the amount of winner time necessary to earn free bids.

Collect free bids when bar fills up

At first those bids 10,20,30, 40 came very quickly and it was nice to get them just for bidding on auctions you would bid on without an incentive.  If you read some of the other blogs written, some winners actually have earned their free bids during an auction that was quite costly, meaning they bid 500 or more bids on the auction and got to claim their free bids during or right after the auction win. If you have gotten to a higher level you can earn more than 500 bids for free!

Look around at other sites, there are no other offers out there that are not gimmicks of some sort. By offering the free bid meter to all bidders without any exclusions everyone who bids on DealDash is earning their fair share of free bids. Fair and honest are two words that describe DealDash and they have earned the right to say so, they truly are.

Bathroom

DealDash has started offering the Interdesign Twigz toilet paper roll stand in bronze, and I am seriously contemplating not putting a toilet paper holder in one of my bathrooms in my new house, because I love this beautiful stand so much, it’s really a work of art, even though it’s meant to hold toilet paper! DealDash also offers different bathroom accessories such as soap and toothbrush holders that will make your bathroom look very put together.

Office/Study

DealDash always has desks available, some of them are very business-like, but others are really beautiful decorator pieces, my favorite one is Sauder Harbor View Computer Armoire. It holds your computer and all of your miscellaneous papers, but when you fold it up and close the doors it looks like a beautiful piece of furniture that would look at home even in the fanciest house.

Living/Family Room

One of my favorite things that DealDash offers that would look great in any living room is the Southern Enterprises Loft Portable Indoor/Outdoor Fireplace. It’s made with glass and brushed nickel, and it looks not only fancy but also really is functional and puts out heat.

Kid’s Bedroom

There are SO many adorable things that DealDash offers for a kid’s bedroom, it’s hard to just pick just one to tell you about. Since I have both a boy and a girl, I will go with something gender neutral, and that is the Peel and Stick Wall Decals! DealDash has many, many different kinds, just a few examples are: Hello Kitty (my favorite), Cars the Movie, Alphabet Animals, Cupcakes, Puppies, and many more. Kids love these decals to decorate, and the best part is you can easily remove them and put up new ones without any damage to your walls.

Master Bedroom

My suggestion for the Master Bedroom might surprise you, since you are probably thinking that I am going to suggest something expensive for this last room, but my favorite item from DealDash to decorate my bedroom is the WBM Himalayan Salt Table Lamp. It serves multiple purposes, it’s a very pretty and unique lamp, but it’s also a natural air purifier. I love mine, and it always makes me feel very soothed when I turn it on.

I hope that some of my DealDash decorating suggestions have inspired you. Go out and bid your way to a more beautiful home!
