HIGH HUMIDITY can make outdoor temperatures
unbearable at certain times of the year. But low
humidity indoors can undermine your health all
year round. The HoMedics Ultrasonic Humidifier
with Warm and Cool Mist can help control humidity levels in your house, relieving dry skin and other
irritations caused by dryness.
The dual 1-gallon tanks (2-gallon capacity) are
easy to fill, and you’ll get up to 120 hours of nonstop
humidification. The unit automatically shuts off
when your room hits the desired humidity level or
runs out of water. The programmable digital humidistat is easy to use and lets you choose from 35 to
60 percent relative humidity. Lights on the display
and in the tanks can serve as a nightlight or be shut
off. And there’s an essential oil tray with an essential oil starter kit, so you can add pleasing scents to
the air for instant aromatherapy.
The HoMedics Ultrasonic Humidifier with Warm
and Cool Mist is available at all Costco warehouses
and on Costco.com for $79.99. The same item sold
elsewhere can be as much as $129.99. Item

I LOVE items that are so versatile they can be used for a variety of purposes. This is
especially great if you’re looking to simplify your gift-giving process. The rugged Double
Black Diamond Packable Down Throw fills this need quite nicely.
The 60 x 70-inch throw is filled with high-loft, 700-fill-power down for greater insulation
and has a fine-denier polyester/nylon outer cover. The quilted box design keeps the down
from shifting and helps to provide even warmth. Convenient and compact, this throw
fits into the included drawstring stuff sack. It is great for travel, camping and tailgating
events or, if you’re like my mom, you could keep one in the trunk of your car should
you find yourself in need of extra warmth.
A great value, the throw can be purchased individually in the warehouse (Item
#638823) or in a two-pack (buy one as a gift and keep one for yourself) on Costco.com
(Item #1190201, 1190202, 1190203, 1190204). Various colors available.—Michelle Husby

FOR YOUR HOME
EVERYONE HAS been there: You are hosting your family for a big holiday meal and have
timed the cooking process for each dish so everything is ready at once. Reality sets in
when you realize you have run out of room in your oven for that perfect side dish you
found on the hottest recipe website.
This year you will be ready, thanks to the Cuisinart Deluxe Digital Convection Oven! This
oven will be your go-to helper not only for holiday preparations, but for everyday meals.
Nine distinct functions—toast, bagel, broil, bake, convection broil, convection bake,
defrost, reheat and keep warm—provide the functionality of a full-size oven in a compact unit. The interior is amazingly large, at 0.6 cubic feet, allowing you to bake a 12-
inch pizza, roast a whole chicken or toast six slices of bread at a time. The large digital
readout with blue backlighting makes it easy to see the settings in low light conditions.
The nonstick interior and pull-out crumb tray make cleanup as easy as pie.
And you’ll love the extra little technological tricks; the Exact Heat Sensor maintains
even heat, while the Always Even Toast Shade Control means no more burning your
toast on one side or the other.
The oven is ready to go right
out of the box, and you won’t
need to take a freshman engineering course to use it.
But perhaps the most amazing part is the value. At many
places, you can expect to pay up
to $159.99 for a similar oven with
these features. At Costco, it’s
$99.99. Available in warehouses
and on Costco.com. Item
