Panasonic 32 Litre Deluxe Combination Microwave Oven in White (Discontinued by Manufacturer)
Panasonic 32 Litre Deluxe Combination Microwave Oven in White (Discontinued by Manufacturer)

5.0 out of 5 stars Well constructed and a pleasure to use. Buy the white one, 11 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
What a great product.... here are the reasons I chose it.

DESIGN: I looked at several brands/models online then went to a local store to have a look. I was drawn to this model because of the quality construction and feel. The door opens and closes with a nice firm clunk and the unit is heavy and stable.

FEATURES: All the features you could want on a combi with plenty of auto programs (and it has a clock).

VALUE: I went for the white model - it looks great and is much easier to clean than a stainless steel unit. Most importantly its 20-40% cheaper than the equivalent stainless steel unit! My last microwave lasted more than a decade and hope this will too.

Key point:
Essential to skim over the instructions before use . A simple example is the pizza button - this is for chilled pizzas on the high rack. Frozen pizzas use a different program and go on the low rack.

4.0 out of 5 stars Works perfectly.... would be 5* if the light could be turned off, 11 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I use this to switch between an atv3 and blu-ray player. It works automatically and reliably. There is a blue led which tells you which input is being used. This light stays on when the atv3 is on standby and the blue-ray player is off.

If I could improve this product I would include an option to turn the light off. The product operated so reliably that a light is not even necessary for normal use.

There is energy wasted - even though it's a tiny amount!

5.0 out of 5 stars Forget about the expensive cables just try this first, 11 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I use two of these cables with an atv3 and blu-ray player.

They work perfectly and the picture is perfectly clear. I also have an expensive QED cable which ironically did not sit as well in the apple tv HDMI socket as this cheap cable. Would not bother with the expensive cables again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Attractive and softer than it looks, 11 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a well designed rug made of durable material that feels quite soft with bare feet! The rug stays in one place and does not curl up or crease.

4.0 out of 5 stars One of the few places to find Moulinex blenders in the UK, 11 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this as a gift for someone who has owned a Moulinex blender for years that finally broke down. Moulinex blenders are no longer available in the high street so I got this model. It seems from the packaging that it is intended for the middle east market. It works very well, has UK plug etc, and the recipient is very happy with it.

Rolson 61702 3 LED Dyno Torch Black

3.0 out of 5 stars Works well but the the sliding on/off switch is stiff, 11 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a good torch that is easy to wind, has a nice 'soft touch' grip, and is bright.

I bought this as a fun little gift for my young kids. The problem with this torch is the on/off switch is a slider and is a bit stiff to operate. It's not easy to switch on with one hand - I need to hold the torch in one hand and slide the switch on using the thumb on my other hand.

My kids struggle with it so I'll keep this around the house and get one with a push button switch for them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Top read for football fans (yes - football fans), 6 Dec 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I know nothing much about baseball but as a football (soccer) fan I loved this book as an in depth treatment of how a sports organisation bucked the trend by taking a more scientific approach (the approach is now commonly dubbed 'moneyball') towards building a squad of players and achieved success.

Although the 'moneyball' approach is not completely transferable to football, we know that top football clubs are also using statistical methods to help identify and target talent. So this book makes fascinating reading about how far a sport could go in using stats to build and maintain a team.

The book is written in a way that combines detailed analysis with human stories and real characters so it is a compelling read simply as a story as well. Highly recommended - one of the top 5 sports books out there in my opinion.

5.0 out of 5 stars smooth flowing trip hop, 6 Dec 2011
This review is from: Who Can You Trust (Audio CD)
Love this album for chilled and rhythmical background music - it softens the mood and relaxes. With soothing vocals this is guaranteed to take you to a good place.

5.0 out of 5 stars IMAX scenes are amazing, 3 Dec 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A tremendous film. But what amazes visually are the scenes that are shot using IMAX format which show as full-screen scenes when watching the blu-ray. These shots are key action scenes and some pictorial shots over city nightscapes. A real wow factor while watching but they don't distract from enjoying the film at all.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must have book for baby/small toddler, 3 Dec 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: That's Not My Monkey (Board book)
This is an excellent book, one of my favourites in the series - I also like the lion and car versions. Both my daughter and son have loved reading time with this - feeling the different textures and as the get older, spotting and pointing at the mouse on each page. A great book to build interest in books and reading.
