BUYER BEWARE! I ordered several items in mid-Nov for Christmas gifts. After several delivery dates came and went - with no delivery- I was just informed that item not in stock. At same time items were shown on web site as available. Second time this has happened. Never again.

Not Big News..... Oh, Food52, do you really have to amp up the Life of Things. ? Is this really how you want your online community to spend its time. Granted, I remember Amanda's ode to the spoon with the hole in it, from the _Times_ magazine (I think.... home magazine?.....) years ago. Fine and well. So too for _The Cooks' Catalogue_. But to stoke excitement about reviewing things? Amazon-like? It feels so much like a focus group feature that's a sop to your VCs. Honestly, I like to think of your site as a cooking site, not a housewares site. Doesn't Amanda's own daughter refer to her as a cook, in the Zuñi tuna video. ? I'm not liking this "HeyheyheyLet'sGetSuperExcitedAboutStuff!" approach. (I obsess over bakeware and the like as much as the next person, but given how brainy the founders are, the whole Stuff approach would be more interesting if the materials and packaging signaled a departure. Cradle to Cradle housewares, for example, that kind of thing. I recently worked on a recycling education campaign, and could not look at Ziploc bags the same way afterwards. Could not buy another plastic shower curtain --- found a sail company and had them make one a washable, reusable, long-lasting curtain for me (hey! an idea for your site, free). We don't need another WilliamsSonomaSurLaTableMarthaStewartDonnaHay online store. Do we? I think not.

I love this feature - will be very helpful, but I'm having trouble seeing other people's reviews in the shop. Where can I find these?
