Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The cable arived promptly, but does not actually work, either via USB or plug. I should have heeded the warnings!

1.0 out of 5 stars All scratched up - doesn't look new to me, 1 Nov 2011
Cheap as chips but it's all scratched up and does not look new. For the price I'm not going to waste time trying to get refunds but not sure I'll risk it in a phone...

1.0 out of 5 stars Fun while it lasted..., 19 May 2006
We got given this pukka little gadget a couple of months back. It worked fine for salad dressings and marinades and was a great talking point for guests ("Twenty quid, for that?")

After no more a couple of dozen uses the inside of the join is all chipped away where the ceramic ball hits against the thin plastic. Can't risk using it any more cos it leaks and you get plastic pieces in the mixture, so now it's just an ornament.

The ceramic ball's still intact though if anyone needs one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Two books for the price of one?, 10 Jun 2004
This review is from: Maximum Diner (Paperback)
When I was given this book I was sceptical as to how the author’s experiences setting up and running a small-town diner could have provided enough material for a 400-page book actually worth reading to the end. Then (as I read it pretty much straight through) I worked out Chris Nye’s trick: he’s actually combined two books in one. The first is a very funny primer for wannabe entrepreneurs eager to avoid the obvious mistakes, or happy to enjoy someone else’s for a change. The second is a spot-on portrait of life in a small country town full (like all small towns) of bored youths, single mums and pound shops. The characters are pleasingly eccentric and the anecdotes always affectionately told. I understand Chris Nye’s brother is the man who wrote Men Behaving Badly, one of the best British sitcoms ever. Maximum Diner’s style is a lot gentler, but there’s never any shortage of laughs.
