5.0 out of 5 stars Great pan, 1 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
One of the new hard-anodised Le Creuset pans available. Not cast-iron but still a heavy, solid pan which may not be to everyones liking especially when the pan is 30cm diam.
Have one and use it almost daily and the finish is still excellent after 2yrs.
Brought this one as a wedding present.
Tip for longevity with these pans is to NOT put them in the dishwasher despite it saying you can.


Le Creuset Classic Cast Iron Oval Casserole, 25 cm - Volcanic
Le Creuset Classic Cast Iron Oval Casserole, 25 cm - Volcanic
Price: £150.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful, 1 Dec. 2012

Excellent little casserole dish which is just what you expect from Le Creuset and what you always get. Great size for the smaller oven and those smaller meals where a big 28cm round is just too big.


Snow Day (John Deere Lift-the-Flap Books)
Snow Day (John Deere Lift-the-Flap Books)
by Devra Newberger Speregen
Edition: Board book
Price: £5.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Big fun flap book, 27 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Another quality John Deere flap book. Very large book (referred to as a Giant lift book on the rear cover) that has a good story and great pictures with all the John Deere earth-moving characters involved and a token appearance of JT the tractor. Not as much detail in the pictures as in "Fun at the county fair" but still entertaining for young fans.


Goodnight Johnny Tractor (John Deere Glow in the Dark) (John Deere Glow in the Dark)
Goodnight Johnny Tractor (John Deere Glow in the Dark) (John Deere Glow in the Dark)
by Running Press
Edition: Board book
Price: £3.99

3.0 out of 5 stars Didn't glow that well, 27 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Nice story in this little board book but the key feature of glow in the dark was a little lacking.
The pictures are nice but you needed to hold the page under a very strong, warm, light for some time in order to create any degree of glow from the light sensitive picture features.
All that aside, the recipient liked it anyway, so I guess that is the true rating.


Fun at the County Fair (John Deere Lift-the-Flap Books)
Fun at the County Fair (John Deere Lift-the-Flap Books)
by Dena Neusner
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £8.23

4.0 out of 5 stars Little story in a big book, 27 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was impressed when the book arrived. LARGE is an understatement. A large, hard covered, board-paged flap book with the three agricultural John Deere characters in it. Excellent pictures, lots of detail, lots of hidden characters/animals etc. Is a simple story but for a young child who likes the characters, what more do you need.
Has all the typical American expressions for certain objects in the farm (meadows, wagons) but other than them a story for all.


Johnny Tractor's Rain-and-Shine (Can-You-Find Book)
Johnny Tractor's Rain-and-Shine (Can-You-Find Book)
by John Deere
Edition: Board book
Price: £3.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun book for little hands, 27 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A small board book from the John Deere crew about the farm and JT. Has a revolving wheel that when turned causes different objects to appear in cut out windows within the book.
Simple story, nice pictures. Good fun for the John Deere fan.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cute little book, 27 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Another of the John Deere character board books. Little smaller than the Snow Day! book but still nice pictures and a pleasant story involving the earth-moving characters of John Deere.
Johnny Tractor does not make an appearance just in case you have a fan hoping for his arrival.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great refernce for French Cuisine, 7 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not a photo in sight for this cookbook. If you like glossy photos, flowery language, celebrity waffle about producer this and organic that then don't buy this book.
It is a straight to the point, nuts and bolts, almost "bible" of French recipes.
Good reference text, something to refer to for ideas and recipes.


Riverstone Kitchen Cookbook
Riverstone Kitchen Cookbook
by Bevan Smith
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent NZ Cookbook, 7 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Broken down by seasons, the book offers a year-long insight into the meanu at this New Zealand cafe/restaurant near Oamaru. Having eaten here myself, the book has a lot of the recipes that were on the menu that day and if I can recreate anything like what I ate that day, it will be a very useful cook-book for day-to-day and entertainment cooking.
There is a full array of recipes in the book from simple breakfast fare, light meals, evening mains and sweets of various shapes and styles. The recipes seem not too complex in their description, all with easily sourced ingredients and rounded off with aspirational photos.
The books emphisis seems to be on fresh produce and simple flavours done well. There are some recipes for kitchen staples (bread, pasta, stock and sauces) but the vast majority are for individual dishes/meals.
Only fault - it's not a hardcover book - so will have to take more care with it in the kitchen. A great buy at this price.

Busy Days in Deerfield Valley: With More Than 50 Action Flaps! (John Deere Lift-the-Flap Books)
by Devra Newberger Speregen
Edition: Board book
Price: £5.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for the kids, 11 Jan. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great big hard cover book of adventure for the digger/bulldozer loving kids in us all. Great artwork and a nice little story. Lots of flaps to keep the little fingers busy as they read along.
Just to be aware that this story does not have any of the John Deere green tractor characters in it, just the John Deere heavy construction characters (bulldozer, digger, backhoe, etc) in case a little someone is expecting Johnny tractor to appear.
