Official Xbox One Media Remote (Xbox One)
Official Xbox One Media Remote (Xbox One)
Price: 17.50

5.0 out of 5 stars Best media remote ever!, 3 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Nice rubberised texture gives it a premium finish. The backlit keypad makes it perfect for nighttime viewing plus its super easy to clean because the buttons don't protrude like other remotes.

The accelerometer works well and does a good job of sensing motion without turning on the backlight every time the remote gets a slight knock.

My friends were actually surprised by the price because it looks and feels like a much more expensive remote. If you're constantly finding you have to resync your controllers every 20-30 mins this is a must.


GreenPan, Kyoto Black Aluminium, 14 cm, Milk Pan, Ceramic Non-Stick Coating
GreenPan, Kyoto Black Aluminium, 14 cm, Milk Pan, Ceramic Non-Stick Coating
Price: 21.87

4.0 out of 5 stars Good little Milk Pan., 3 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Can't fault the non stick coating or its ability to retain heat. It's got a nice, comfortable handle and heats up milk nice and evenly. Cleaning is an absolute doddle.

I had to remove one star because like a few reviewers have mentioned, the pouring spouts are too small and liquids end up running down the side.

Sad because it would have been the perfect milk pan if it wasn't for that.


Kyocera BB-100 Chopping Board Flexible Plastic
Kyocera BB-100 Chopping Board Flexible Plastic
Price: 12.80

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed, 3 July 2014
Not much to say really. I was under the impression that it was made out of a soft rubbery form of plastic but this isn't the case.

The back is smooth with no grip whatsoever, the whole thing slides all over my work surface unless I moisten it beforehand.

I really don't think you get what you pay for when it comes to this chopping board.


Kyocera FK Red Handled White Ceramic 14cm Santoku Knife
Kyocera FK Red Handled White Ceramic 14cm Santoku Knife
Offered by eKnives
Price: 41.53

5.0 out of 5 stars SHARP!, 3 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Sharper than any store bought knife I've ever owned, more so than my Global collection.

I've never owned a ceramic knife before so I'm not sure how long it will hold its edge but a month in and it's about as sharp as the day I purchased it.

It's lighter than I would have liked but that's just me.

I would still highly recommend it.


Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free Millet Flour 500 g (Pack of 4)
Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free Millet Flour 500 g (Pack of 4)
Price: 12.49

1.0 out of 5 stars Bitter, unpleasant aftertaste. Nothing like freshly ground millet., 3 July 2014
Very bitter aftertaste, that usually means the millet has turned rancid or wasn't packaged in time. I threw the other two packets away. Also gave one to my friend who had to throw hers out too!

Dissapointed.


St John Ambulance Vinyl Powder-Free Gloves Medium (Box of 100)
St John Ambulance Vinyl Powder-Free Gloves Medium (Box of 100)

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for Food Prep., 3 July 2014
These gloves are perfect for making sushi. The skintight fitting ensures you get a good feel for the food which is very important for hand forming nigiri etc.

Don't think I could make homemade sushi without them!

Greenpan 20 cm Tempered Glass with Stainless Steel Rim Univesal Glass Lid with Metal Handle
Price: 6.50

5.0 out of 5 stars Not a bad lid., 8 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Purchased as I wanted an oven proof lid, unfortunately it doesn't have a steam vent and the handle will get hot to the touch. Other then that it does what its ment to and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to a friend.


Greenpan Venice 20 cm Covered Saucepan, Grey Aluminium
Greenpan Venice 20 cm Covered Saucepan, Grey Aluminium
Price: 42.57

5.0 out of 5 stars Best pan ever, 8 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Just the right weight. The handle is really comfortable to grip and does not get warm like I thought it would. The heat retention is impressive, once the food starts to simmer turning the heat all the way down to low will still maintain the correct temperature.

Oh and it has the latest Thermalon "Marathon" coating, some of the older stock still uses the "rocks" variant so keep an eye out for that.

Going to get the 16cm pan next!

Just the right size for a TomTom GO 820 LIVE, I really like the built in fabric screen protector and padded inner sleeve. Has more than enough room for all the cables / mount.

5.0 out of 5 stars If you love making pies this is the dish for you!, 18 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Just the right size for the majority of recipes I have. The matching pie bird is a must if you want to insure your filling doesn't spill!

Made a Chicken and leek pie using "The Hairy Bikers' Perfect Pies" recipe book (highly recommended btw). Checkout my picture, yummy right?
