As we prepare to head into the holiday season, Jim Cramer likes to take the pulse of the consumer.

Jarden is the owner of 120 different household brands, including Coleman outdoor gear, Rawlings baseball gloves, Crock-Pots, Mr. Coffee machines, Yankee Candle and more.
To gain color on what to expect from consumers this winter, Cramer sat down with Martin Franklin, the co-founder and chairman of Jarden. What has made Jarden successful over the years is the company's approach to finding niche markets and becoming the top player in each. Can they continue to be No. 1?
