3.0 out of 5 stars No protection for screen, 6 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is for the JETech Gold Super Fit Metal Case for Apple iPhone 5/5S/AT&T/Sprint/Verizon/T-Mobile - Champagne Gold/Silver. The case itself is sturdy and looks and feels lovely. It has a very high finish. I would love this case, except for one thing. When you lie the phone face down, the screen surface is flush with the table top. From the photos it looks like the case is slightly deeper than the iphone, but it's not. So it doesn't provide any protection for the screen whatsoever. I've bought another case to replace this one because of this. There's no screen protector film provided either - minor, but something you should know before you buy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pastry-chef meets gluten free, 5 Jan. 2013
The recipes are written in cups, and you need to find a supplier of tapioca and sorghum flour and guar gum, all of which are in nearly every recipe. I can't find guar gum, but I substituted the inferior Xanthan Gum, and it seems to work ok. There are other flours you need for each different recipe, like chestnut flour, millet flour, glutinous rice flour and chickpea flour. If none of this daunts you, and you crave the texture of gluten-full goodies, then believe me this book is worth it. So far, I've tried the ginger gingerbread, used the sponge recipe from the blackberry-lemon trifles and made the pecan banana bread. They have all been delicious and indistinguishable from the best of gluten-full equivalents, so my husband says. Since owning the book, I've been following the author on her blog and here she more recently admits that to get consistent measures of flour, she fluffs the flours up before scooping the cups and that weighing is the better way to go, so maybe in future her recipes will be in grammes. Progress! This is also a lovely book to browse with beautiful photographs. It's smaller than a large coffee table book at around 20x20cm. It would make a great gift for any serious gluten-free baker. But not one for the casual baker based on the range of ingredients required.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great gadget, 18 Nov. 2008
This does work really well and I wouldn't boil an egg without it now. The colour changes to black (or dark red) gradually from the outside in as the egg cooks, and you just wait until the edge of darker colour reaches the "soft", "medium" or "hard" markings, however you like it. Perfect results every time. We have extremely hard water, but I always use filtered water and have never had a problem.
However, a warning if you're colour blind: it might not be quite so useful. My husband is colour blind and he has trouble seeing where the colour has changed.
