5.0 out of 5 stars Arguably the only quality jug blender on the market!, 17 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This blender looks great, works exactly as required, is quiet (some other reviews here suggest it's loud or noisy but I was surprised at how quiet it is considering the power of it's motor) and thoughtfully designed. Dualit is preferable to Magimix in my book because they're generally better quality, don't include useless accessories (I've got a Magimix food processor so feel I've been able to compare manufacturers) and most importantly - do what you want them to do. Haven't tried crushing ice yet but confident it will do so with aplomb! Finally, I read complaints about the "cheap" plastic material used for the jug - well, I also have a glass jug blender attachment for my Kenwood Chef and much prefer the plastic - lighter, stronger and easier to hold/manipulate.

1.0 out of 5 stars Pants!, 24 July 2013

Not worth bothering with at all - Tufte is okay but tedious, this is worse than crapola - I'd not recommend this to a blind chimp!

4.0 out of 5 stars Better than the glass topped see-through ones!, 24 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is good because it has two lids - plus the glass topped ones let sunlight through which degrade your spices! Probably could be cheaper but hey-ho, you pay for the convenience of mail order I guess!

3.0 out of 5 stars Good shelf life but expensive for what they are!, 24 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Was hoping to get a relatively inexpensive spice mail order via Amazon - unfortunately not the case as could do better for cheaper at local Asian supermarket.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not quite Complete., 24 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was left wanting after listening to this for the first couple of times, track sequencing / selection was way off so no idea who decided what went where! A bit of a mish-mash really.

3.0 out of 5 stars TV series excellent, book isn't as inspiring unfortunatley!, 24 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Rick Stein's India (Hardcover)
This book doesn't have the same vibe as the t.v. series - although I'm sure repeated viewing of episode recordings alongside reading this cookbook would do wonders. Shame, I was really looking forward to it. Have a look at "Undercover Curry" instead.

Microsoft 2000 Comfort Curve Keyboard Compact wth Hot Keys Black Ref B2L-00005

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as comfortable as the 3000 or 4000!, 24 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
3000 is very quick but takes quite a while to get use'd to - 4000 is a luxury keyboard compared to 3000 but big and quite unwieldy. 2000 feels cheap in comparison to both (speaking from a touch typist pov)!

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth the cash!, 24 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Have bought a couple of the white plastic type lounger's from Lidl/Aldi etc. for about £30ish previously - for £47 I think this is an absolute bargain. Light weight and adjustable, okay it doesn't have arm recliners but it's so comfy I don't care!


Undercover Curry: An Insider's Expose of British Indian Restaurant Cookery
Undercover Curry: An Insider's Expose of British Indian Restaurant Cookery

Edition: Paperback
Price: £12.20

5.0 out of 5 stars Would give it six stars if there were a few more photographs!, 23 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having started off many years ago with Pat Chapman books, and more recently been reinvigorated as a curry-holic watching Rick Stein's great "India" programmes, I have bought a LOT of curry cookbooks (I'm sure most of the popular choices anyone reading has in their stockpile). I'm surprised to say that I think this has to be my absolute favourite for a number of reasons: it's style/tone is motivating from the start - I don't agree with some of the negative reviews talking about wandering prose or petty niggles about measurements - plus it's not a Madhur Jaffery style "technical" book where everything has to be exact (gods help you if it isn't or you don't have some obscure spice or ingredient). It's very "hands on" and easy to follow (although I've been reading curry cookbooks for years so must have picked up a few techniques etc.)

My only request would be to have a few more photo's of what Dave is talking about (an actual "curry spoon" for example) to make things even more simple to follow/reproduce the results - I realise this would add incrementally to the cost but I think even B&W photo's could assist here!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good...., 22 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
....but very dry! Still, content is streets ahead of the likes of John Walkenbach (and even dear old Bill Jelen).
