The Big Cheese Rat Cage Trap
The Big Cheese Rat Cage Trap
Price: £10.99

3.0 out of 5 stars Perhaps I have been unlucky, 23 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Given the reviews here these traps must work for at least some people. Perhaps I have been unlucky - or too impatient. I set one of these traps and moved it around for a couple of weeks but caught nothing in spite of trying a variety of recommended baits. I then tried a couple of plastic snap traps and they worked within days. No more rats at present but if more appear in future I shall set both the cage trap and the snap traps.

5.0 out of 5 stars Comfortable and robust, 23 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I purchased this product at the same time as a pair of Softilux glasses by Lux Optical. Both are excellent. These glasses are perhaps not as elegant as the slightly cheaper Softilux but they do give more protection at the side of the eye and the yellow does enable you to put them down without losing them. Comfortable to wear and robust.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good but with one annoying feature, 23 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Many slow cookers cook too quickly but not his one: on low setting it is just right. One can start a casserole or a treat such as a joint of brisket when leaving in the morning and return to discover it has been cooked to perfection. The one niggle is that when cooking on low the cooker has to be pre-heated before the ingredients are placed in the bowl. It is a large cooker and though there are usually only two of us I like to use it to cook enough to put a couple of meals in the freezer.

3.0 out of 5 stars Inconsistent manufacture?, 22 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I think there is a problem with consistency in manufacture. Of the two traps I ordered one did not work very well: on several occasions the bait was taken without springing the trap. However, the other trap worked perfectly, and I caught 4 squirrels within 5 days.

5.0 out of 5 stars A lot of power in a small body, 22 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I am old enough to remember the time when one had to buy a monster of a torch to have any power. I bought this for my wife and she thinks it is the cat's whiskers. It is small enough to carry in her handbag and more than powerful enough for her to make her way around the unlit streets in our village at night.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent value, 22 Aug. 2014

I bought four of these (all 8 GB) a year ago and all have performed well. I have seen complaints about the speed but it seems OK to me. The attractive minimalist design is a bonus. The price I paid made them very good value.

Comfortable and effective - and good-looking for safety glasses. I use them for gardening jobs such as hedge-cutting.

4.0 out of 5 stars Better than I had expected, 22 Aug. 2014
Having previously used only expensive photo printers I was surprised at just how good, versatile and cheap this printer is. I have noticed complaints that the ink runs out quickly. Well, I have never found a printer yet whose ink does not seem to run out quickly. I urge people to buy the larger cartridges (apple) that are available for they seem to be better value than the standard ones supplied with the printer. The printer does not print photos as well as a dedicated photo printer but I was surprised at how good a job it does. Similarly the scan facility is not as good as a dedicated scanner but very acceptable. The copy function is also more than adequate and very quick.

5.0 out of 5 stars Handsome and practical, 22 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I am still delighted with this product after 18 months of use. It is good-looking and practical: I am pleased not to have to constantly refill a pepper mill. At first the pepper seemed too coarse and then my wife pointed out that it can be adjusted and changed the grind to fine.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not thornproof but otherwise excellent, 22 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have had a pair of these garden shoes for several years. They are comfortable and sturdy and have stood up to constant wear for a long period with just one problem - thorns. I have a long hawthorn hedge that requires annual pruning. Over time I have trodden on thorns and some have penetrated through the soles. I have found it impossible to remove them in most cases so I simply break off the tips of the thorns inside the shoes. However, I am so impressed with these shoes in every other way that I have now bought a second pair and intend to use the older pair only when working on the hedge.
