Hello, and welcome to JC Extra Research, the premier spot on the web for finding the best reviews of a variety of different products!

JC Extra Research was founded by a group of friends who realize that there isn’t enough solid information out there to help people make informed buying decisions. Our goal is to be your first stop when it comes time to shell out your hard-earned money for the products you need for your home, car, and outdoor living.

When we do reviews, you can be sure that they are unbiased and tell the entire story about a product. We make it our mission to bring you the best and most reliable reviews and content online. When we review a product, we strive to answer the following questions.

  • Is the product reliable?
  • Is it affordable and a good investment?
  • What do other reviewers and experts have to say about this product?
  • How do other customers rate the product?

When we review a product, we compare it to other products in its class. We don’t just find you the best kitchen scale, for example. We want to help you decide from “the best of the best” kitchen scales and choose the one that works for your family. 

We offer far more than just reviews, however. We also have detailed guides and how-to articles about how to do various things. For example, if you want to learn how to make wooden drawer slides, we’ve got you covered. Want to know what you need to consider for buying a baseball bat? Hey, we cover it. We want to be your one-stop for everything you need to know about buying the stuff you need. 

We want to welcome you to our community and our site. If you have content suggestions or products you’d like to see reviewed, leave a comment on one of our articles or get in touch with someone on our team.

We look forward to getting to know you!

Chief Editor

Most of my career has been spent working in library science. After receiving my degree, I went to work for a small local library in a charming little Southern town. It was very rewarding to help bring them into the digital age and teach a whole new generation of young digital natives just how valuable a library can be.

These days, I enjoy the flexibility of working for an online publication. I stay busy with my family and getting kids to and from activities. Leading a team of talented people at JC Extra Research is the perfect dream job for a facts and research nerd like me. Contact me at [email protected]

I fell in love with the written word at a young age. My grandmother taught me to read and write before I ever went to school. She knew that by exposing children to reading material that was interesting to them, you could foster in them a love and hunger for reading. 

After receiving my journalism degree in college, I went to work for the college’s radio station and also worked on the college website and newsletter. This segued into writing for online publications, and I found this awesome job here at JC Extra Research.

Contributing Writer

I am a consumer advocate who specializes in researching products.

In short, I research available professional and consumer product reviews to better understand their unique features and characteristics. Specifically, I investigate their design, ease of use, and durability. Additionally, I include a wide range of products to accommodate a variety of needs and budgets. For example, I review home furnishings, kitchen cookware and appliances, landscaping products, and more.

I use a variety of well-known high authority sites such as Consumer Reports, the Better Business Bureau, the AARP, and others when writing product reviews. When applicable, I also refer to the American Customer Satisfaction Index (ACSI) for information regarding customer satisfaction trends. For example, ACSI's recently published Household Appliance and Electronics Report for 2018-2019 offers invaluable information for individuals researching the purchase of a new computer, smartphone, or the like.

I also write articles on a variety of topics to include arts and crafts, health and nutrition, and outdoor cooking. The sky's the limit. I am excited to have the opportunity to share my love of writing and advocating on behalf of consumers here at JC Extra Research.

I’ve always been diligent about knowing all the pros and cons of a product before making a buying decision. This came from growing up in a single-parent household and watching my dad manage money on a tight budget. We couldn’t buy anything unless we knew it would be the best possible investment. This attitude has followed me into adulthood and a professional career in reviewing products. 

When I’m not working, I spend my time working on personal writing projects. When I have the “Great American Novel” written, I’ll be sure and let you all know where to buy it (ha). Contact me a [email protected]
