5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic bag. Perfect size for my paperwork, 12 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Fantastic bag. Perfect size for my paperwork, surface, umbrella, and all my other daily bits and bobs. High quality, lots of compartments. Not sure what else to say, best thing I've bought in a long time, and even as a student on a very tight budget, I feel it absolutely worth the money in the long run, compared to buying a 20 quid canvas bag that's just going to fall apart, zips break etc.

Bought these for myself and upon receiving them, well, i love them.

Nice and sturdy, lovely designs, and a perfect size for noodles or soup or a nice salad or a big bowl of shrimp fried rice or such.

Fantastic purchase.

4.0 out of 5 stars great quality, 8 Mar 2013

This review is from: ProCook Elite Forged Wok 30cm
There is only one reason that i have given this item 4 stars instead of 5 and in part it is due to an almost unavoidable design "flaw".

Firstly though, the pan is fantastic, it is heavy, very sturdy, and the build quility seems top notch. Feels like it will last for a very long time unlike my ikea wok..

But the flaw i mentioned. The issue with this product is that it is designed for all heat sources, and therein lies the problem. To be compatible with the likes of an induction hob, it needs to have a fair sized flat bottom. A good wok might have a small flat bottom, but it really wants to be as bowl like as possible. In the case of this wok, it seems more like a fryingpan wok hybrid, than a wok. I have only used it once so far, and this fryingpan nature was apparent in the process of cooking, but it in no way made the wok unusable.

So in short, maybe i'm just too much of a puritist, but the "flaw" aside, it is a really fantastic product for the price :)

Beautiful product. Maybe expensive for a pair of chopsticks, but the case is sturdy, very attractive, the chopsticks have a lovely colour and the table rest has a lovely pattern. Absolutely worth the money :-)

What can I say. It is a le creuset item. Wonderful. My mother has a few of these, and has done for over 20 years. I consider it expensive considering the cheaper versions available from various shops, but I k ow it is a sound investment.

Although I will say that the packaging is awful. Basically a cardboard box, no protection whatsoever. First one came in a handful of pieces, obviously dropped by a warehouse worker, but the replacement arrived a day later, so very pleased :-)

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic postage speed, 23 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought these on thursday, arrived saturday morning. They arrived exactly as described, a week before the estimated date.

Lovely design, the bowl is of a good quality, the spoons seem a little delicate, but for £3.25, it looks and feels brilliant. Well worth the money.
