Kitchen Craft Master Class Deluxe Traditional Carving Fork
Kitchen Craft Master Class Deluxe Traditional Carving Fork
Price: £13.95

5.0 out of 5 stars Very nice carving fork, 21 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have had this carving fork in my wishlist for around 12 months, I wish I had bought it sooner now as it's a really nice item. The fork is very high quality, and is a good size, it compliments my Wusthof carving knife superbly. It actually looks nicer than the pictures, which don't really show the quality of build. Highly Reccomended!


Lodge Round Skillet with Handle, 26 x 5 cm
Lodge Round Skillet with Handle, 26 x 5 cm

5.0 out of 5 stars Superior cookware, 14 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have wanted a cast iron skillet for a long time now and finally decided to take the plunge; have to say I am very pleased with my purchase. The quality is superb as you would expect from Lodge, and the results speak for themselves. Cooking a steak in this pan beats any non-stick as far as I'm concerned. As long as you follow the cleaning instructions properly and oil the skillet after use you can't really go wrong. Lodge has a selection of videos on their website showing how to care for their cast iron cookware, and to be honest it's a doddle! Just get one, you won't regret it!

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good introduction, but needs updating, 9 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a good intro to servers and basic server admin, but like all things IT, it's now out of date as it does not cover Server 2012.

Le Creuset Cast Iron Round Casserole, 24 cm - Satin Black
Le Creuset Cast Iron Round Casserole, 24 cm - Satin Black
Price: £116.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential cookware from Le Creuset, 2 Nov. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have been wanting a Le Creuset cast iron casserole for a long time now so finally took the plunge and ordered one from Amazon. Really wish I had got one ages ago, this is now probably the most useful pot in my kitchen. I have used it to make all sorts of dishes from Beef bourguignon, cassoulet, chilli con carne, to braised beef brisket, it truly is a versatile pot. In terms of quality, well it's Le Creuset so I need say no more. All in all an excellent purchase that will last many years.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quality cookware from Tefal, 15 Sept. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a real step-up in quality from the less expensive Tefal pans. I had been looking for a new wok for a while and had considered this one as well as the Raymond Blanc Anolon version. Having had the chance to handle both pans there wasn't much between them in terms of weight and quality, but this one wins on price - at £25 from Amazon it's a steal!

The non-stick is very high quality and is described as safe for metal untensils (apart from knives or whisks). In use it cooks to perfection on a low to medium heat, Tefal's heat spot is a useful guide to avoid overheating the pan. It washes up perfectly by hand every time.

All in all this will make a fine addition to any kitchen and with the right care should last a while. Highly reccomended!

3.0 out of 5 stars Good for the money, but shrunk first time we washed them, 3 Sept. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These are good value, effective oven gloves. However on washing them for the first time, in accordance with the manufacturers instructions, they shrunk (at only 40 degrees celsius) to the point where they are now only useable by my wife who has smaller hands. They still do the job, but they are not quite as dextrous as they were before washing.

To sum up, not a bad product, just be aware that they may shrink a bit with washing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good quality item, 13 Aug. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This carving fork from Master Class is great value for money. It has a quality feel and substantial mass. The soft grip is very comfortable and allows easy carving of large joints of meat. All in all a very worthwhile purchase from Amazon. (Oh and it has a manufacturers 25 year guarantee as well!)

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good indeed, 23 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a simple and effective potato peeler. It is comfortable, easy to use and sharp. You really can't go wrong with the Oxo, if it lasts as long as some other reviewers have said then it is an absolute bargain.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good for the price paid, 16 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These are good value entry-level binoculars, optical quality is pretty good for the price. I have only used them for terrestrial viewing so far but plan to use them for binocular astronomy as well.

The binos came well packaged as you would expect from Amazon, the supplied case is a bit poorly padded and the neck strap is very thin. But for the price paid the overall product is good.
