5.0 out of 5 stars Great iron. Great results., 28 Mar. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I have been using this Iron for the last few weeks and have been very impressed.

The Iron heats up quickly and the steamer function is very effective indeed, producing vast amounts of steam; t has an automatic cut off it its not used for a while, and for a large family, it really has taken the strain out of ironing as it cuts through creases very effectively indeed. Other good things about this Iron is that the handle is comfortable, the iron itself is solid without being too heavy to use, and the water level is very easy to read, so you can tell when you need to fill it up.

The only downside to this product is that the Iron itself cannot "lock" to the base unit, which is a pretty big oversight if you going to market this product to people with large families. While the Iron is unlikley to slip off it, it could very well do so with a modertae bump, which could cause a serious accident,

Overall, this is a great iron and it really has impoved my ironing experience

T overall this is a great iron - its solid, stlylish and most importantly effective!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great product with some small faults, 28 Mar. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This product is very good in offering high quality, powerful sound, and it is very solidly buit. However, it has some small faults which let it down.

Firstly, connecting this to the phone was VERY straight forward indeed. Connect it to the wifi network, use the phone to scan wifi networks and connect. Bingo.it took about 5 min, and once connected the sound was very strong and clear with a very deep bass.

However, as you cannot connect the phone to the machine via bluetooth, you cannot be connected to this and a local wifi network at the same time, which for me is frustrating as I tend to stream radio stations through the phone via wifi (4G is still patchy where I live). This means I can only play pre-downloaded music on my phone when using this machine. The panasonic app is ok for this, and comes with 6 months free registration to spotify tpo stream music, but after that I don't really see me wanting to pay for the service. Also the produce is VERY heavy for what it is, which may put some people off, and quite plain looking.

Overall, the set up is easy, the sound is great, its well built, but is not really great if you need wifi to connect to the internet on your phone

5.0 out of 5 stars A great soup maker!, 28 Mar. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is my first ever soup maker and I have found it to be superb. It can make either hot soup or cold smoothies, and does so in next to no time at all!

As well as coming with a recipie book for both soups and smoothies, the machine itself is easy to operate with big, clear buttons that say very clearlty what they do. There are four options available - smooth, chunky, compote or blend meaning you can make what soup style you prefer. It also has a keep warm function and an easy self clean option too.

I've been experimenting with soup making for a few weeks now, to varied success but this has been down to my own mixture of ingredients and not the soup maker, which has provided consistent operation at all times - it will do exactly as you want it to do.

Overall, this is a great quailty product and I cannot wait to use it in the summer to make smoothies

5.0 out of 5 stars A great cleaner, 28 Mar. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This dettol cleaner is superb. It has a nice smell, and can be used on most kitchen surfaces - counters, cooker, drawers, chopping boards, even the table. I have even tried it in the bathroom around the sink area and tiles, and it still cleans well. I also took a punt and used it to wide off some persistent dirt on my car interior and it still worked!! I can vouch that it kills 99.9% of germs, but it certainly removes all dirst and grime and smells fresh.

Overall a great cleaner that really does work pretty much anywhere and it smells great too.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great, comfy baselayer, 7 Mar. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The baselayer fitted very well - tight and warm, but not uncomfortable, and the lack of seams added to this. The quick dry function meant that sweat was not an issue, and the set not being a one piece means you can use the top on its own if needed.

Great product

5.0 out of 5 stars Best headphones I've ever had., 7 Mar. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
These headphones are superb!

I have owned many headphones in the past, but there are without doubt the best I have ever owned. They are solidly made, have a good weight to them - heavy byt not overly so and more importantly the sound quality of them is amazing - rich, well balanced, loud and clear; the muffs are VERY comfortable on the years during long plays, and the adjustment on the headband locks well in to position and is easy to move too. The Headband also folds down easly making them perfect to pack away in a day bag / handbag / backpack / suitcase allowing you to take them pretty much anywhere. The sound contol for the headphones has also been placed up high by the right earphone, making sound adjustment easier as the location is contant - no more looking halfway down the lead to adjust the sound. They also come in a very nice and sturdy carrier case.

Overall - superb

5.0 out of 5 stars A great product!, 7 Mar. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I got this product for my friend and so far she likes it.

The epilator itself is well built, solidy and sturdy, and the heads are easy to change - plus the desgin of them has meant that there has been no nicks or cuts when using it. This has been the case with the "main" epilator and the facial epilator too, although this has been more painful to use. The heads are easy to change and In terms of cleaning the wet one, you simply remove the heads and just run it under the tap. Although you prefer to clean it dry, it does come with a cleaning brush. It also holds its charge well too. The different settings means you can also change the intesnity depending on where your shaving.

All in all a good product and well worth getting!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great quality dry weather walking shoe, 7 Mar. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I got these for a friend who does a lot of walking and she was really happy with them. The fit was spot on, she loved the desgin ( mountain stylish (subtle) with a femenine touch) and the grip on the undersoles was very good indeed. The laces were qood quality and locked in to position well too with the metal lace clips.

In regards to actual performance, they were comfortable to walk in, and offered good foot support over rocky ground. However, they are not fully warterproof - its says weatherlie on the description - and after walking through some damp long grass (of about 100 metrers) they became saturated quite quickly, which while expected, was slightly disapointing in that they did not keep the wet off for longer than 1 min (or about 10 meters).

Overall, a very good quality walking shoe for dry to lightly damp terrain, best used in the summer months

4.0 out of 5 stars A great budget toaster, 7 Mar. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This toaster is a solid, efficent appliance that offers good quality for a low price.

The toaster itself is very easy to operate with clear dials, and a slide out crumb tray that's easy to remove. There are a total of 6 different toasting options available, and the unit itself is very light - making it easy to move around. The performance of the toaster is also impressive it, toasts bread quickly and consistently providing a good toasting experience

The only problem I have with this toaster is that a big slice of thick bread does not fit 100% in to the grill for toasting - the tops of the bread stick out, (however this is the case with most budget toasters) but 90% of the slice fits in well enough. Also, the chorome pastic effect is easy to scratch and smudge - making it look slightly worn even when new.

Overall, this is a great budget toaster and I would well reccomend it

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great, no frils oral b toothbrush, 25 Feb. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This toothbrush is great - simple to use, it holds its charge well, and using the trizone brush heads, it really does do a good job of cleaning teeth

This toothbrush is simple and straight forward to use - it has an "on/off" button that's easy to operate and that'stimer, and the settings for The different 3d brush effects are easy to use too. The power indicator at the bottom of the brush is easy to see and clearly shows when the battery is running low. The inter-changeable heads mean that you can use pretty much any oral-b electric toothbrush head and your not obliged to keep to the head that comes with this brush - meaning that you can use this brush to suit your "brushing style".

The brush is easy to handle - not too heavy and not too light and it has rubber gripping along the sides which helps you keep a good grip on the brush during cleaning. The heads are also very easy to change (simply pull them off) but they remain solid when connected to the brush and when its in use. The toothbrush also comes with a short "charge base" for the brush which means its easier to store.

The only gripe I have with this brush is the 12 hour charge time. However saying that a single charge should last you around a week, brushing twice daily, so it does hold the charge pretty well.

Overall this a solid brush and is excellent for the price.
