1.0 out of 5 stars Might have bought it ....but...., 9 April 2014
May well have purchased this book as it does get a couple of decent reviews but since author wants a top writer (or two) to cease writing in order that the reader/customer has a choice limited to the mediocre and worse, there is no way I could ever give this author's book houseroom. Hopefully she will issue an apology.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great for all ages and stages., 7 Jan 2014

Bought for 91 year old mother to keep her warm indoors in winter. For this type of customer elastic rather than a tie waist would be better but local alteration shop sorted this. Also great for general outdoor wear.

5.0 out of 5 stars What we photographers have been waiting for!!!!!!!, 7 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It does what it says. It really does. Customer services also extremely helpful when my innate clumsiness produced a bubble. They replaced immediately. Have now put one on new Fuji x pro1. No more buying packs of six screensavers from overseas in the hope that perhaps one will attach successfully.


Jamie Oliver Flavour Shaker - Cool Blue
Jamie Oliver Flavour Shaker - Cool Blue

1.0 out of 5 stars INFERIOR QUALITY, 15 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this to replace one I have used almost daily for 3 or 4 years. Whilst this one looks the same, the quality is grossly inferior, the sealing ring doesn't fit easily and when shaker closed it jammed shut and took 10 minutes to open.And this was on a "Dry run", I wouldn't dare put oil and vinegar in. Very disappointing purchase as original one was marvellous.


Solid Copper Magnetic Bangle Brushed Metal Effect
Solid Copper Magnetic Bangle Brushed Metal Effect

3.0 out of 5 stars Short-term effect, 4 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
When bangle arrived I was delighted by the look and the "style". Here was a copper bracelet that looked good enough to wear as a fashion accessory. However, after a few weeks of constant wear, the brushed metal effect is wearing off around the edges. It now looks rather shabby and by the end of the day I have a dirty mark on my arm. A straightforward copper one might have been a better buy.

SAMSUNG i9100 GALAXY S II SCREEN PROTECTOR / GUARD / FILM / COVER, 6-IN-1 PACK BY TERRAPIN

1.0 out of 5 stars USELESS, 15 Aug 2011

Six in a pack? Soon became six in the bin. I do know how to apply screen savers, but these ones always had one edge that wouldn't adhere to screen, making new shiny phone look really tacky. Waste of time and money.

4.0 out of 5 stars Well designed, 22 Nov 2009

This review is from: Hugx Pet Bowl - White - Mini
This bowl is well made and well designed. I would give it a 5-star rating if only the cat for whom it was purchased would use it. This is on no way a criticism of the bowl, it is simply the way of cats. The other cat loves it.

5.0 out of 5 stars BEST EVER, 22 Nov 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
In my 40 years of cooking only vegetarian food I have acquired a bookcase full of cookery books, some good, some not so good and some with perhaps a couple of repeatable recipes.
This book and its companion "Indian Kitchen" are in a league of their own. They are both FANTASTIC. These books have introduced me to new ingredients and new combinations of the familiar, producing the most beautiful flavours I've tasted.
Books also very readable with loads of interesting information as well as beautiful photographs.
