Brass Universal Cistern Lever to Syphon Adjustable Link Lift Arm
Brass Universal Cistern Lever to Syphon Adjustable Link Lift Arm
Offered by PlumbinBitsUK
Price: £2.95

5.0 out of 5 stars Simplicity and practicality together - and good value, 2 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a fantastic item. The price is fantastic, too. It's a model of simplicity and practicality. We hunted all over for a plastic replacement for our previously broken one. Our lever had an hexagonal stem and we couldn't find a replacement and didn't want to dump the handle - this lever-arm did the job perfectly and much more cheaply than the very inferior plastic equivalent.

5.0 out of 5 stars I've really grown to love this machine over the week that I've had it, 4 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've really grown to love this machine over the week that I've had it. It makes really good coffee.
Till now, we've been using Nespresso capsules but they never quite achieve that coffee shop flavour. I think this machine does.
Add to that the better price for coffee beans and, crucially, all that waste in producing and disposing/recycling of the the capsules.
The machine does look slightly industrial and took some getting used to: it's not as sexy as some on sale. But it seems well-made.
Oh - one thing- the instructions accompanying the machine are rudimentary, to put it politely - but it's easy enough to find them on the internet and print them off.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Almost Perfect Kettle, 17 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This kettle is really very good: well-made,good to use, quiet and actually boils water And it is attractive and comes with three years' guarantee. In a kettle-world of over-priced, flashy disappointments, this kettle is a clear winner. It's only drawback is a plasticky taste that actually disappears (thanks to the Waring helpline) if the kettle stands for a couple of hours with a solution of vinegar and water inside. A good buy!

2.0 out of 5 stars It's a horror, 14 Sept. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Eden Lake [DVD] (DVD)
I was intrigued by various reviews and mentions of this film, but it hadn't really registered with me that it was a horror film. It reminded me of Lord of the Flies, seeming to express the view (maybe with some justice) that humans are potentially evil - maybe more than potentially but inherently evil.And that the world is a scary place, that civilization is a veneer.

In the additional material, the director speaks of an experience that inspired the film: a situation where he was humiliated by his own inability or unwillingness to confront some anti-social behaviour that affected him personally.He was afraid that the situation could escalate out of control and the pain would not be worth any possible gain.

In the film, we see this belief made manifest. And it is all too horrible.

It may be social commentary. It may be true. But ultimately it came across as a horror film. Not my thing at all.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not quite what I expected, 17 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: 100 Floralife Flower Food Sachets
We had been buying flower food sachets from a local shop and these ones looked like a good deal - however, they are more dilute than what we were used to buying and therefore weren't such a good deal after all - plus the cost of packing and postage!


Have A Little Faith
Have A Little Faith
by Mitch Albom
Edition: Paperback
Price: £8.83

4.0 out of 5 stars Well worth a read, 17 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Have A Little Faith (Paperback)
A month or so ago, I hadn't even heard of Mitch Albom, but now I've read three of his books and found they all have something of interest to say: he writes honestly, humanely and, frequently, very touchingly. What he writes rings true and, in the case of Have A Little Faith, is autobiographical and very involving. That is not to say his work is perfect but I would happily recommend him and this work.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than you might expect for the price, 10 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This case must rate as a really good buy. You never quite know what to expect when you order something without being able to handle it, but this case is really good: it is well-made, well-designed and handsome, too.

4.0 out of 5 stars Really funny film, 7 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Had no idea what to expect from the film but was very glad I bought it:offbeat, funny and humane. It showed a side to American social life that I hadn't seen depicted much before: unglamorous and unsuccessful and seemed authentic because of it.
