2.0 out of 5 stars Occasional use or small people only!, 3 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a bean bag. First and foremost. It looks like it is structured and to some extent it is, but this is no chair!

You can punch at it to move the beans around and practise sitting on it lots of times and eventually get fairly comfortable. Talk of sitting on it 24 hours and falling asleep due to comfort etc are nonsense in my opinion.

I actually find it pretty sore on my back before too long and find it annoying that you need to keep shaping and reshaping it.

They send you it in two boxes also, so you have to pour the beans into it, by which time it is too big to send back. They then want £42 to collect it for return.

If you are a 6 foot guy like me and want to use this for any length of time, I would think twice.

WMF 1287399000 Grill Tongs with Bottle Opener
WMF 1287399000 Grill Tongs with Bottle Opener
Offered by Juwelier Malysiak_1
Price: £16.02

4.0 out of 5 stars Good tongs, suited to BBQ use, 9 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These tongs are made of the usual high quality stainless steel from WMF and are simply one large solid piece with no hinges, springs or moving parts to break.

There is a bottle opener on the rear and the tongs can hang surprisingly well on a hook utensil rack. Dishwasher safe and highly polished finish.

These are very large though and described on the box as BBQ tongs. I can see why as they would keep your fingers far away from flames.

You can of course use them in your kitchen, as I do but be aware that you are getting a pretty large set of tongs.


Swordfish 800XXC 8 Sheet Micro Cut Paper/Document Shredder ref: 40158
Swordfish 800XXC 8 Sheet Micro Cut Paper/Document Shredder ref: 40158
Price: £139.99

5.0 out of 5 stars A real step up, 3 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was, as most people are, used to many of those "standard" home shredders that can be bought everywhere for between £30 - £60. Compared to that standard of shredder this beauty is:

- Far quieter
- Shreds into far smaller pieces (A4 sheet becomes 2500 bits)
- Can handle more paper (up to 8 sheets of 80 gsm paper at once)

The top shredding section cannot be lifted off like most cheaper ones and it is much more secure. It sits atop four caster wheels and can be moved easily. Bin pulls out like a drawer and is simply tipped out. The motor does not make that sound of struggling when loaded up, it just chews through paper with ease.

This machine actually draws the paper through ever so slightly slower than some cheaper models, but this is a small price to pay for the superior quality and security that it brings. I was never overly concerned about the noise of my shredder before, but after hearing just how quiet this one is in comparison it highlights how loud the other ones really are. This just emits a low hum.

Can shred paper, most cardboard, even handles staples well (although not recommended) and can also shred credit cards. It cannot shred CDs or DVDs. Get yourself a bottle of shredder oil also and run a sheet of paper through it once a month laced with some of it for continued smooth shredding.

Seems expensive but as the other reviewers have said it is a real step up in quality, and well worth it in my opinion.


WMF Profi Plus Swivel Vegetable Peeler
WMF Profi Plus Swivel Vegetable Peeler
Price: £17.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Works well, 3 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This it the same high quality I have found in all the WMF Profi Plus utensils I have bought. Well polished, high grade steel, dish washer safe.

The peeler works in both directions, so suitable for lefties too. The cutting part swivels and is serrated so cuts smoothly and easily.

I have found this cuts at almost a set depth so if you need to remove more skin from your fruit or veg, don't try to press harder, just swipe twice or more to get as much off as you want.

Works well and is top quality, which is worth paying for.


Nogent 3 Star Super-Kim 4030 G Tin Opener
Nogent 3 Star Super-Kim 4030 G Tin Opener
Offered by MMP Living
Price: £11.79

5.0 out of 5 stars When used properly, very good, 28 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I understand why a few people have said this is fiddly to use or doesn't seem to stay on. Trick is not to try to mount this can opener in either horizontal or vertical positions, it goes on neither way despite how most can openers work! This little beauty sits on your can at its own unique slanted angle while it does its thing.

You don't need to worry about that though, just put the cutter over the can lip and turn. It grabs and starts to turn and cuts easily. When finished, give it a turn on the reverse direction and it disengages.

Very simple. Needs two hands though unlike some fancy electric ones available now. It is however very small, easy to store and seems strong and able to last a long time.

I will update the review if anything changed but so far so good, neat little can opener.


WMF Multi-purpose Kitchen Scissors

5.0 out of 5 stars Quality kitchen scissors, 28 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These scissors are surprisingly large overall and versatile in their design.

One edge of the scissor blade is serrated and help it cut neatly through tough items. There is a bottle opener in the center, a gripper further back and a jar pry tool to the rear.

Coated handles are comfortable and the steel is high quality. They are dish water safe and the blades are long enough to cover just about any kitchen or household task you may have.

Costly, especially when I bought as they came from Germany, quickly, but at greater expense.

Should last a long time though and good things cost money.

Recommended.


WMF Profi Plus Soup Ladle

Price: £15.50

5.0 out of 5 stars High quality, 28 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Just as ladle in the sense that there is nothing new or groundbreaking here in terms of the design. This is however constructed of a high grade steel and finished to a high quality polish. Joins are neat and the item looks good.

Hangs well and has been through the dish washer with no trouble. Worth the extra money over cheaper alternatives.


WMF Profi Plus Silicone Turner
WMF Profi Plus Silicone Turner
Price: £13.50

5.0 out of 5 stars High quality, 28 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a nicely designed, high quality utensil. Stainless steel is high grade and finished to a flawless standard and highly polished.

The silicone covering is done without blemish and prevents scratching your pans. The edge is beveled and shaped to help scoop up food well.

Dish washer has been no problem so far and the hook is large and can be hung up easily.

You get what you pay for and this is worth the money.


Sani-Cloth 70 - Alcohol Wipes (200 disinfectant wipes)
Sani-Cloth 70 - Alcohol Wipes (200 disinfectant wipes)
Offered by Aaron Chemicals Ltd
Price: £6.45

5.0 out of 5 stars Good quality wipes, 28 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These alcohol wipes have of course a multitude of uses. They come in a large tub with a click shut lid to prevent drying out. So far these wipes have stayed very moist and dispense without any hassle.

Great for sanitising and they are a good size too.

Handy to have about and recommended.


Kitchen Craft Stainless Steel Utensil Hanging Rack
Kitchen Craft Stainless Steel Utensil Hanging Rack
Price: £12.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Does the job, 23 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Pretty hard to fault this utensil rack. I found it surprisingly hard to find one that was stainless steel and not a ridiculous price.

My rack came with ten hooks, despite the picture showing twelve. I doubt you could fit twelve things on here unless they were all pretty narrow anyway. The rack came with two simple wall plugs and two screws. The screws fit pretty well and are flush when fitted. Installed easily with no fuss to my wall, could also be mounted under a cupboard. The metal is not polished, more of a brushed steel look. It is not overly well finished if you really examine it closely. More than good enough though.

Described as "stainless steel" although this is a pretty much meaningless term that gets banded about a lot. Should not be getting wet often if at all though so I doubt the grade of steel will ever matter.

The hooks can be slid up and down to best suit what you are hanging. The hooks have to be slid on from the side so they cannot be removed once the rack is fitted. There is of course no guarantee that your particular utensils will fit the hooks well or at all. I am using WMF Profi Plus utensils and they all fit no problem.

Works well, looks good on the wall and is a far better solution than that hateful drawer full of tangled miscellany!
