Vacu Vin Heavy-Duty Aluminium Garlic Press with Scraper - Black
Vacu Vin Heavy-Duty Aluminium Garlic Press with Scraper - Black
Price: £8.95

5.0 out of 5 stars Chunky, durable and good value, 26 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I just love this garlic press !!!
As I use loadsa Garlic any press has to be pretty durable and this one apparently is - so far !!!
- All the others I've had have fallen to bits sooner or later including an expensive Kuhn Rikon press ...
It certainly is 'chunky'.
The only possible downside is that it takes a bit of care and time to wash properly but this is a small price to pay.

3.0 out of 5 stars Get Jimmy Page and Dick Carruthers' 2003 double DVD instead., 25 Jan. 2015
Reluctantly giving this 3 stars. I wanted to like it more but ... There is too much awful cheesy footage of Plant poncing about ... The video is only 720 x 576, so definitely NOT 'HD' ... it looks grainy too (processed from film to digital presumably) and the audio is only sampled at 192 kbps which is lower MP3.

Zep did rock and Madison Square Garden 1973 probably was one of their best gigs but this lets them down sadly. Maybe the remastered version is superior as my copy has the cover in French so the 'edition' is unknown. I would also hope that Jimmy Page and Dick Carruthers' double DVD of 2003 is much better ...

3.0 out of 5 stars Although I love The Waterboys this is perhaps not their best, 23 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Modern Blues (Audio CD)
Although I love The Waterboys this is perhaps not their best. For me, only 'Long Strange Golden Road' cuts it ...

That said I will be going to see 'em play live again in February when doubtless they will be playing much of this.

It might 'grow on me' and I would have bought it anyway ...

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing value for 'Cool Jazz' - Even for Jazz newbies like me !!!, 23 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I confess I'm only a Jazz 'newbie' and I 'discovered' this collection when Amazon 'suggested' it to me. I'm glad they did though because it is superb !!! Previously I had only 'liked' Jacques Loussier, but perhaps I'm getting more 'sophisticated' (or something) ???

Anyway, the collection is amazing value and my only criticism would be that I would have liked more detailed liner notes so I can learn more.

I call this 'Cool Jazz' and it will be replayed many times ...

3.0 out of 5 stars Not sure about the quality/durability - Yet ..., 2 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'm still breaking these boots in before I really put them to the test.

At first glance they seem ok, but I mainly bought them for the price (discounted 50%) ...

As my main walk is steeply up and down and can't really comment on the fit just yet because it is crucial that one has enough room for one's toes of course ...

The thickness of the leather could be another issue, but we shall have to see ...
