3.0 out of 5 stars great toasties - but its too SMALL, 12 Feb. 2009
Well, I've made quite a few toasties with my diablo now, and have got it down to a fine art. I just love chopped ham and guyere cheese, but best of all (dont laugh- you gotta try this) Bacon and thinly sliced bananas. I know it sounds cgreazy - but try it - delish!!

My one gripe about the Diablo - and its a serious gripe, is that it is way too SMALL.

They should have made it twice the size. the toasties are OK for a small child, and 8 year old say, - but for a grown man - you need 3 of them for a decent bite.

Why on earth cannot some manufacturer make somwthing like the Diablo - which lets face it - aint difficult ! But make it the actual size of a slice from a small loaf??? What's wrong with that??

The Diablo is a great idea - its just too damn small tho.

1.0 out of 5 stars Worst bit of kit I ever bought -0 waste of money, 12 April 2006
Like many people reviewing the Liton LVW - 5045, I would report that it worked fine for 6 months. After that it just seemed to develop a mind of its own, and became extremely unreliable.
My main problem was in copying from Hard drive to DVD. On Mondeays it was fine, and performed as it should. For the rest of the week it simply would not recognise that it had a blank DVD in the try, - yet this was from the same pack of 10 DVD's (Verbatim 16X) that it quite happily copied from yesterday.
Pernickety finnicky, fickle......

2.0 out of 5 stars Through the French Canals, 17 Aug. 2003
Not happy with the title of this book, it should be called French canals from Calais to Marseille, or something like that.
The Callais - Marseilles route is covered, a bit skimpily I think, but the other two main waterways of France are barely mentioned at all. Probably because the author has never been there.
If you are looking for a guide to the Normandy - Brittany - Loire Waterways, or the North East Waterways into Belgium and Holland, this is NOT the book to buy.

2.0 out of 5 stars Map of Inland Waterways of France, 14 Aug. 2003
Very unimpressed with this map.
Firstly it is way too big, you would need a surface area the size of a dining table to spead it out. It would have been far better to reduce the overall size and pront on both sides of the paper. But most disappointingly, it does not contain an index of place names.
The map actually gives very little information, e.g. locks are not indicated. Anyone who has been to the French Canals will know that there are hundreds of locks to be navigated, neither any mention of low bridges....
Could do MUCH better than this, but seems to be the only specialist map around. Maybe I should make one myself.
