5.0 out of 5 stars Superb large farmhouse loaf tin, 16 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have waited 4 months before reviewing and can confirm that this is a high-quality high-capacity loaf tin. Twice a week I make a 4lb loaf in it but you could probably go to 5lb of uncooked dough before it is at capacity. The result is a lovely big farmhouse loaf - if you are making a bread-porn film it would pass the audition.

To be on the safe side I cut up a piece of old silicon to fit the bottom and then just oiled the sides to season them a couple of times before use putting the empty tin in to a hot oven for 15 minutes. No sticking problems whatsoever have been encountered (I don't wash it up either just rub it after use with some oily greaseproof paper).

One thing to note because of the way these tins are made they will leak liquid. So don't go too heavy on the oiling before use as you will get a little pool of oil on the oven floor as the excess warms and runs out.

Various other treatments had all failed but this spray fixed the infestation with one application.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant plug and play device, 16 Mar. 2016

Brilliant plug and play device. Can't fault it. I used it as the new Sky Q hub has only got 2 ethernet ports (down from 4) and I have several ethernet cabled devices around the house. Small, elegant and with great performance.

1.0 out of 5 stars Went bobbly and was unuseable after two washes, 16 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I washed this sheet on arrival and before use - I tends to do this to soften the fabric. It was then used for 7 days and then washed again. And then I had to throw it away. Why? Because the sheet was now covered in hard scratchy 'bobbles'.

I notice other reviews for this item seem to be favourable so maybe I just got an odd 'bad' one. Luckily the sheet was cheap enough for me to write the purchase off without the hassle of asking for a refund.

4.0 out of 5 stars cheap and wide-fitting but only last a few months, 19 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Had several pairs of these - they last me about 5-6 months before the waterproofing skin wears through and the seams split. Soles never wear out (I walk about 30-40 miles per week). Sometimes the lacing hooks come off which is annoying.

But they still get 4 stars because they are wide-fitting and cheaply priced. Dearer walking shoes only tend to last a couple of months longer at best and sometimes less than 6 months I find.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth every penny, 15 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Far superior to similar products (the 'net' type). This stuff sticks like glue to both the carpet and the floor. Our hall and landing carpet runners do not move an inch - ever.

It was well worth paying a bit more to get the right stuff

5.0 out of 5 stars great performance, easy to fit and good price, 15 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I had previously bought a similar pair for a Peugeot Partner Combi and had been delighted so bought these for a Nissan Micra. They arrive with a bewildering number of plastic adaptors for other car models but fortunately the basic wiper blades fitted on the Micra without having to use them so fitting took way less than 5 minutes.

The blades suck every drop of moisture from the screen and are silent even when on intermittent wipe in light drizzle when you often have to endure squeaking from the blades.

Strongly recommended and at a great price.

2.0 out of 5 stars Very patchy results and short fitting cable, 26 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this to fit with a pioneer DAB radio/CD etc in a Hyundai Getz. The fitting was fine although a 5m cable would be much better than the 4m cable supplied. However the DAB reception was very patchy - bad enough to have to have to replace this aerial.

I had previously put the same pioneer radio in to our other car, a Nissan Micra, but had used a £14.99 aerial bought from Halfords. This had a taller mast with a corkscrew at the base and gave infinitely better reception. Plus the Halfords aerial had a 5 metre cable to make fitting more flexible allowing the aerial antenna to be positioned more centrally on the roof of the vehicle.

Admittedly we are in a poor DAB reception area (darkest Lincs) but the Halford aerial glitches twice a day whereas this DAB radio glitched every couple of minutes. Worth spending a bit extra in my view to get better results.
