Morphy Richards Jet Stream 42254 Steam Generator, Mauve
Morphy Richards Jet Stream 42254 Steam Generator, Mauve

5.0 out of 5 stars Almost makes ironing fun., 15 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Ok, that was a lie. But this very well priced piece of kit makes a very boring 'kill me now' job as painless as possible. I'm in the military so my line of work means I have a plethora of precision ironing to do at all times. This iron copes admirably. I get the water from Halfords by the way. Tick, VG.

2.0 out of 5 stars Cheap for a reason., 15 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As my Mum would say, 'buy cheap, buy twice'. Yet, being a man, learning does not always take place. One of the lenses fell out after first use so I now have a well protected right eye. Poor old lefty. Avoid.

2.0 out of 5 stars Firewood., 15 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This product is great for the first ten minutes. After any kind of use, the tiny screws will fall out and you'll add it to the list of jobs around the house that you'll never get round to along with favourites like: 'What is that key for?' and 'do any of these batteries/pens/random usb cables work?'. Avoid.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best trainers I've ever bought, 15 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These trainers are design perfection. Light, comfortable and I also don't have to employ any brain cells to tie up my laces. I bought them for Tough Mudder which meant I gripped while most slipped. Now I use them for everything, except going down the pub because that would just be weird. Buy them now.

2.0 out of 5 stars Great, except for the cheap nasty handle, 15 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Fulton Huntsman Umbrella (Apparel)
For some bizarre reason, great attention to detail has been applied to the design of this umbrella right up until you get to the handle. At this point, it seems the chief designer went on a well earned holiday and handed over the remainder of the design project to the office new guy who decided a chipboard handle with a wood veneer would be just the ticket. Fire him immediately. Mine arrived with a dent in the handle, I needed it for a funeral so kept it anyway. It's become more dented and scratched through normal use so now it looks about as classy as the Jeremy Kyle show. Epic fail.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tough Mudder ready., 5 May 2013
Bought these for Tough Mudder, North London (4th May 2013). I gripped whilst most slipped. Incredible bit of kit. Not cheap, but sometimes you really do get what you pay for. Buy one size up from your normal. Don't require breaking in. Sold.

2.0 out of 5 stars Good, but needs improvement, 4 Aug 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This seems to be very much the prototype design with a few technical issues to iron out. Namely the fact that the base does not attach securely to the main oven with the screws provided (which are the wrong size as well as needing bolts). I addressed this serious safety issue to the company, who chose to enthusiastically ignore it. Imagine the scene: Heavy and potentially hot oven, someone unaware of the fault attempts to drag it somewhere, oven detaches from base. Instead of a nice day of al fresco dining, you are now queuing up in A & E all day waiting for someone's crushed foot to be seen to etc etc.
The pizza stone arrived in 'mosaic' style. I was assured a new one would be sent, that never happened. I've re-designed the attaching bolts and sorted my own bbq out but the customer service to rectify faults was frankly shocking. Still, it now works quite well as an oven and very well as a chimnea for when the evening cools down. This could be a great product if only they listened to their customers.

Bear gives a frank and witty account of his escapades, including a condensed version of his Everest summit attempt. You can see why he earns some big bucks as a motivational speaker. Highly recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great quality from a new brand, 25 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I nearly bought a McCullogh 540 from home base for 150, glad I didn't. This lawnmower looks and feels like an old school Tonka truck: Built to last. The assembly instructions may as well be written by an Italian bureaucrat but you'll figure it out courtesy of the pretty pictures on the box. My top tip: The two gearing wires come disconnected from the handle. You will spend ten minutes and some choice words trying to connect them unless you do this: a. Unscrew the throttle lever housing from the handle (the cables run through the housing)b. Connect the two gearing wires to their handles (they'll only reach the correct ones so you can't go wrong) c. Re-attach the throttle housing (you'll need some man strength to give you enough slack to get the long bolt back through the handle. Make sure your wife is watching at the appropriate moment)
All of the above will make perfect sense once you've read the 'instructions' and had a gander at the machine. The engine is unlikely to start from brand new on the first few attempts, but don't worry, it's good exercise. You should now be free to spoil the perfect serenity of your sunny day and torture all of your neighbours with with your man sized lawnmower of doom. Enjoy!

Great torch that fits in a standard issue flying suit and is plenty powerful for external aircraft turn around checks in the dark. Handy to have in your car too. Very well made.
